During the counteroffensive, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost less than 10% of the equipment supplied by Western countries to Ukraine. This was stated by the head of the intelligence center of the Estonian Defense Forces Margo Grosberg in an interview with ERR.
He noted that this figure could grow in the course of further operations at the front, since losses in the war are inevitable in any case. At the same time, according to Grosberg, Western equipment provides better protection than Russian and Soviet ones, which means that the survival rate of its crew members is higher.
The head of Estonian intelligence also emphasized that most of the Ukrainian units have been preparing for an offensive over the past six months and have not yet been involved in hostilities. Due to the fact that Ukrainian troops are now striking along a wide front line, it is not yet clear where the main strike will be carried out.
According to Grosberg, this strike should not be expected in the next week, since the Armed Forces of Ukraine are now "probing" Russian defensive positions for weak points, and will do so for some time.
Earlier, the European Commissioner for the Internal Market, Thierry Breton, in an interview with Le Parisien said that the EU would accelerate the supply of weapons to Ukraine in order to support the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine against Russian troops. At the same time, he noted that these deliveries will not depend on how successfully offensive operations develop.
