Everyone is waiting for Ukrainian counter attack soon (the weather plus supplies and training). No one (sane) is thinking about orcish new attack, after all they lost thousands troops trying to seize tiny Bakhmut for months and the replenish rate is lower than loses they suffer. So this news can give some fuel to further speculation:
Mykhailo Zabrodsky - former commander of the Ukrainian Air Force, lieutenant general and Hero of Ukraine. On March 17, 2023, he resigned from the MP's mandate to take the position of Deputy Zaluzny. Who is he? He commanded the 95th Air Assault Brigade during the fighting in Donbass. And now the key information. In early August 2014, the 95th Air Assault Brigade conducted the largest and longest armored raid behind the front line in military history. Two mechanized infantry battalions, one tank battalion and the 1st self-propelled gun battalion took part in the rally. The brigade attacked along several axes and broke through the thin line of defense of the separatists. Then it made a deep penetration along the border with Russia, two separatist republics. On the way, she destroyed Russian tanks and artillery. This action resulted in the liberation of a whole series of surrounded Ukrainian garrisons from the encirclement. After traveling 450 km. The brigade returned to its starting point, i.e. to Sloviansk. It brought with it numerous Russian tanks and heavy artillery units. In other words, the Ukrainian version of Patton has just become Zaluzny's deputy and I assume that he will lead the "tank mate" in the counteroffensive.
Ps. On the military boards I follow, there is a discussion already for couple of weeks actually suggesting similar raid but now with an option to do it using russian neighbouring republics.
PPS. Some bad arse photo.
