The Ukrainian counteroffensive in the south and east continues pushing the Russian military further back, forcing troops to retreat, sometimes in a sudden disorganised manner. Moreover, according to the Institute for the Study of War “Russian and Ukrainian sources reported Ukrainian ground attacks in northern Kherson Oblast, western Kherson Oblast, and northwest of Kherson City but did not report any major gains.”
Furthermore, European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen said in a recent State of the Union Address that the EU was wrong not to listen to voices “in Poland, in the Baltics, and all across Central and Eastern Europe” that have been saying for years that “Putin would not stop.”
Meanwhile, on Wednesday, the largest warship to visit Gdynia after WWII, a US Amphibious assault ship, USS Kearsarge (LHD 3), entered the seaport. It will be stationed there until Monday, September 19.
These and other subjects were discussed in the latest episode of Rock Rachon, with the Dean of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies, Lt Gen David A. Deptula (ret.) and journalist Matthew Tyrmand.
According to Mr Deptula, the Russian airforce has been missing in action as it made no effort to stop the Ukrainian counteroffensive. At the same time, the Ukrainian airforce claimed that it shot down nine Russian aeroplanes between August 29 and September 12.
He added that with the support of the Ukrainian airforce the country’s ground forces could advance at a faster rate.
