That’s according to Andrii Cherniak, the spokesman for the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry, who spoke in a comment to the Kyiv Post, Ukrinform reports with reference to the GUR press service.
"While reports are spreading about Russia’s large-scale offensive scheduled for February 24, Ukrainian military intelligence reports that Russia has already launched a full-scale offensive on February 24 last year, which continues today," the intelligence official said.
Cherniak said that Russia plans in the coming weeks to intensify its efforts in the east of Ukraine.
He noted that now Russia is "trying to find weak spots in our defenses."
"However, according to our information, Russia’s command has no sufficient resources for a large-scale offensive action. The main goal for the Russian troops remains to achieve at least some tactical success in the east of Ukraine," Cherniak emphasized.
The GUR officials added that Russia is facing a shortage of high-precision weapons.
"Russia is facing a shortage of high-precision weapons, and despite this fact, they will continue to apply missile terror against the civilian population in Ukraine. The Russians have already utilized more than 80 percent of their high-precision missiles. They are trying to restore their production, but so far they have not succeeded in this regard," the official concluded.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, based on the information provided by Ukraine’s military intelligence, Russia is working on various scenarios of a possible new offensive, while being engaged in disinformation, spinning fake news on certain directions of such alleged incursions.
