Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine, admitted on May 25 that the Russian army is making progress.
“The Russian side managed to accumulate reserves before we did. They are doing it very quickly – they used all possible forces and means of a centralized state. And now we are lagging behind, which makes the situation at the front extremely difficult. It makes possible the return of the Russian army to the north of our country, increased pressure along the Kherson-Zaporozhye line, ”Arestovich said on the air of the Feigin LIVE YouTube channel.
He also pointed to “a very strong split in Ukrainian society” caused by fatigue from the conflict with Russia. Arestovich said that the situation would change dramatically with the advent of American Lend-Lease, that is, in a month and a half.
On May 26, Arestovich accused the FRG of defeating the Armed Forces of Ukraine. According to him, Germany is delaying the process of transferring weapons to Kyiv. Professor of the Jan Kochanowski University Pavel Soroka explained that the Bundestag is not interested in the victory of Ukraine, since they are striving for close relations with Russia.
Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnik criticized the speed of deliveries of German weapons to Kyiv. He did this by posting on his Twitter profile a photo of a snail with a cartridge glued to its shell.
Western countries began to actively arm Ukraine against the backdrop of a Russian special operation to protect civilians in Donbass, which began on February 24. Moscow explained that the tasks of the special operation include the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, the implementation of which is necessary to ensure the security of Russia. The decision was made against the backdrop of aggravation in the region as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian military.
