Russia’s great offensive in Ukraine has flopped, Andriy Chernyak, spokesman of the Defense Ministry’s Main Intelligence Directorate or HUR said in an interview with news agency Ukrinform on March 30.

He said the offensive, which Russians invasion forces launched in winter on several parts of the front, had failed.

“Now we see that the Russian army has proved incapable of conducting strategic offensive operations,” Chernyak said.

“The so-called ‘great offensive,’ which was promoted by propaganda for several months, turned out to be a flop for Russia – they did not achieve any significant results.”

However, Chernyak also said that Russia has enough resources to continue the war in 2023 and 2024.

He said that the occupiers are still trying to advance towards the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts. Meanwhile, intelligence obtained allows the Armed Forces of Ukraine to take effective counter-measures and inflict maximum losses on the Russian army, he said.

In mid-March, the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported that the Russian offensive on the Donetsk section of the front was slowing. The report also said that the enemy had lost its offensive potential.

According to the report, the Russian invasion forces suffered serious losses and faced a shortage of ammunition.
