    According to military expert Carlo Masala, the Ukrainian armed forces lack the necessary weapons for a counter-offensive to recapture the areas held by Russia. Masala said on Tuesday in the stern podcast “Ukraine – the situation”: “The situation is getting worse for Ukraine, which is partly due to the fact that Ukraine is paying a high price in blood; that many of the heavy weapons that have been promised are still available aren’t there.” If the leadership in Kyiv sticks to their plans for an offensive, their only option is “to carry it out more in the spirit of a partisan offensive.”

    According to Masala, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has no intention of continuing the war at any price and regardless of the chances of victory. During his visit to the troops at Pentecost, he gave the signal to the soldiers “that Ukraine will not burn its own troops.” The political professor at the Bundeswehr University in Munich accused the Russian side of relying on terror to break the Ukrainians’ will to resist. The attacks on Kyiv and other locations should make it clear that Russia can continue to reach anywhere in the country. Part of the strategy is to “increase the terror and suffering among the civilian population in such a way that at some point they influence their own political leadership to come to compromises”.
