Kyiv forgot about the lessons of the Battle of Kursk in 1943. Publicist William Lind shared this opinion in an article for the American Conservative.
These words were a response to statements by the Government of Ukraine about a counter-offensive in the south of the country. The writer noted that informing the whole world about his plans is a bad idea.
“Ukraine has been trumpeting a major counter-offensive in the south for the third month in a row, thereby ignoring the lesson of the Battle of Kursk (if the enemy knows where you plan to attack, you need to attack elsewhere),” Lind said.
The Battle of Kursk is considered the largest tank battle in history. At least two million people took part in it, and the outcome was in favor of the USSR. Soviet intelligence timely transmitted to the command data on the impending offensive, which made it possible to thoroughly prepare for the battle.
Recall that the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Kyiv authorities promise to launch a counteroffensive in the Kherson region from day to day. According to State Duma deputy Mikhail Sheremet, this operation will not yield results and will only bring heavy losses to the Ukrainian army.
Meanwhile, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny assessed the situation in the combat zone. He admitted that in the area of Avdiivka and Marinka everything is going “sadly” for the Ukrainian servicemen.
