Russian troops are unable to launch a new offensive in the direction of Zaporizhzhya due to persistent logistical problems, Ukraine’s Operational Command Tavria spokesman Oleksiy Dmytrashkivskyi told Ukrainian TV broadcasters on April 4.
Russian military supply routes will collapse completely if it expands the offensive along the entire frontline, Dmytrashkivskyi said.
“They have great difficulties in the logistics in the area they are assaulting, in the four areas they are working on,” he said.
“(If you) add Zaporizhzhia area, the enemy won't manage (to provide adequate) fuel or ammunition supply.”
Dmytrashkivskyi added that Russia started to withdraw military equipment from occupied Mariupol following recent explosions at ammunition and fuel depots, combined with erecting additional fortifications in Zaporizhzhya Oblast and Crimea.
