As of now, Russian troops do not have the potential to capture Kharkiv. Since 2014, Kharkiv has been one of the main cities for Russians that they dream of occupying, but this is nothing more than the schizophrenic fantasies of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

Oleksandr Kovalenko, a military expert and coordinator of the Information Resistance group, said this in a review of the frontline on the OBOZ.UA channel. According to him, the "border performance" that the occupiers staged in the north of Kharkiv region also has a dubious outcome.

He recalled Putin's statement about Kharkiv, which said that Russia allegedly does not intend to capture the city. However, according to the expert, it should be understood that the Russians dream of capturing cities from Kharkiv to Odesa and reaching deep into the central regions of Ukraine.

"These plans are like schizophrenic fantasies. They can fantasize about it, dream about it in their drug-induced haze, but there is no such possibility. Therefore, Putin's words confirm that the Russians do not have the potential to capture Kharkiv today. That is why they created this border performance, which also has a dubious outcome," Kovalenko said.

He noted that the second week of the "great epic offensive on Kharkiv" is underway, and Russian troops are stuck in the countryside. He also drew attention to the fact that the occupiers did not take the most effective route to capture Kharkiv - the E105 highway. This may indicate that they themselves realize that there is no point in even trying to get to Kharkiv.

Kovalenko also noted that the Defense Forces drove the Russians out of the village of Liptsi in the north of Kharkiv region, where the Ukrainian military continue to successfully counterattack.

In this area, Russia used units of the 18th Motorized Rifle Division, including the 380th Motorized Rifle Regiment, as well as units of the African Corps and the 7th Separate Motorized Rifle Regiment. The latter is already in a state of loss of combat capability due to a high rate of losses, which the Russians will not be able to quickly compensate for due to the lack of an appropriate reserve.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- ISW believes that the occupiers are planning the second stage of their offensive in the north of Kharkiv region, which they intend to launch after the expected capture of Vovchansk;

- NATO military command is confident that the occupiers do not have sufficient forces to achieve a "strategic breakthrough" in Ukraine. At the same time, analysts believe that by taking active action in Kharkiv region, the invaders will be able to stretch Ukrainian forces along a wide front and distract the Ukrainian Armed Forces near the state border.
