Over the past 2-3 weeks, the media massively received reports about victorious strikes made by the Ukrainian army at the separatists: destroyed LAMTT (light armored multipurpose tracked tractor), burned the separatist`s dug-out shelter, suppressed the machine-gun point, a truck with orcs was demolished…
Separatists, obviously, did not like this state of affairs when they lost personnel and equipment (and they did not forget to “state” that near Mariupol already). Therefore, they will venture on a massive offensive.
At some point, the new forces of the Russian military will catch up, and the blood will flow. This will be a new phase of the war, the intensity of which will be equal to the battles of 2014.
There will be a need to introduce a new martial law shortly before the presidential elections, thereby abolishing them for an indefinite period.
