General Yaroslav Strosik, former deputy head of the Intelligence Council at NATO Headquarters, and deputy head of the Stratpoints Corporation, estimated that the actions of the Ukrainian army were a “perfectly prepared operation.” He gave three reasons why he believed this to be the case.

“The attack continues,” Przydlaki said. He admitted that “Ukrainian forces were moving very quickly in their early days.” On their way, he added, they encountered “poorly trained and ill-equipped” Russian soldiers. “But they also basically faced one true line of defense that they were able to break through quickly,” he added.
– Now they are fighting with a more prepared and more experienced opponent – the journalist emphasized. In his opinion, “it is clear that the Russians have thrown everything in their power to stop this Ukrainian storm.”
Przydlaki also emphasized that “in the north of Kharkiv there are battles for the liberation of other cities, mainly all the way to the Russian border.” “This attack is going well,” he said.

The Guardian: The counterattack is well-prepared for three reasons
General Strosik assessed that the Ukrainian counterattack was “well prepared for three reasons”. – First of all, well-groomed intelligence – he pointed out. He explained that the matter was related to information obtained “from reconnaissance and intelligence and also in cooperation and certainly with the United States.”
– The second element is already the creation of anti-missile defense in connection with the received equipment. Because we can see that the Russian Air Force is not able to support the troops on the shore. And thirdly, the preparation of artillery for combat, that is, firing from HIMARS, as well as howitzers and other means received by Ukraine – enumerate them.
In his opinion, “This is a well-prepared process.” “These developments in the past two days, sometimes even 50 kilometers a day, are a huge success, but most of all, the game is about cutting supply lines and conquering more cities,” he explained. According to him, “this war may be a breakthrough if Ukraine regains control of Kherson or Mariupol in the far south.”
On September 11, the American Institute for the Studies of War (ISW) published a map of the progress of the Ukrainian counter-offensive in the east of the country. Experts put the blue color on the liberated areas within five days. As the research center confirmed – this is a larger area than the Russians have been able to occupy since April.
