Ukrainian marine said our soldiers will move like missiles when commenting on the breakthrough of the second line of defense of the Russian army
Ukrainian servicemen continue to systematically dislodge the Russian occupiers in the south of the country. The defenders overcome meters of mined enemy fortifications every day, but the combined success of the Ukrainian Armed Forces will create big problems for the Russian invaders.
Moreover, the servicemen are confident that the pace of the counter-offensive will increase significantly after the breakthrough of the second line of defense. This is stated in an article by The New York Times.
The Ukrainian military involved in the fighting expressed great confidence that they would be able to break through the Russian positions.
"There will be a direct route to the sea with no fortifications after the first and second line. We will move like missiles," a Ukrainian marine said.
The Marines are fighting on a line running south along the T0158 road that passes the Mokri Yaly River. Ukrainian troops have liberated several settlements on this section of the front since the start of the counteroffensive in June.
According to Ukrainian defenders, the Russians are urgently sending reinforcements to try to stop the Ukrainian Armed Forces' offensive.
The White House national security spokesman John Kirby said that the Defense Forces advanced several kilometers between the villages of Robotyne and Verbove in the Zaporizhzhia region in 72 hours.
Earlier it was reported that the aggressor country Russia deployed units of the newly created 25th Combined Arms Army "reserve" to allow the units in the Luhansk region to redeploy to the south of Ukraine. The occupiers hope to hold back the Ukrainian counter-offensive with the additional forces.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the former commander of the U.S. Army in Europe retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges said that Ukraine will not be safe and will not be able to restore its economy until the temporarily occupied Crimea is liberated.
