The counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the south significantly weakens the capabilities of the aggressor - ISW

The Ukrainian counter-offensive significantly weakens the logistical and administrative capabilities of Russia in the occupied south of Ukraine.

This is stated in the report of the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) for September 5th.

It is noted that Ukrainian troops are inflicting targeted strikes on accumulations of manpower and equipment, command centers and logistics hubs of the enemy, seeking to undermine its rear capabilities in the southern direction.

The ISW recalled that the so-called "deputy head of administration" of the Kherson region, Kirill Stremousov, told the Russian TASS agency about a pause in holding a pseudo-referendum in the Kherson region for "security reasons."

However, the collaborator later stated that "everything is going according to plan" and the date of the "referendum" has not yet been set.
Both statements by Stremousov indicate a high level of disorganization within the occupation regimes, which is likely to be aggravated by the consequences of the counteroffensive.. Ukrainian troops intend to slowly reduce the capabilities of the Russian tactical and operational level in the Kherson region, and this is likely to have a significant impact on the administrative and bureaucratic capabilities of the occupiers.
