What Can the Shock Success of Ukraine’s Offensive Tell Us About the War?
Everyone was caught by surprise (even Ukrainians), but only some are capable of using it to understand more
Everyone was caught by surprise (even Ukrainians), but only some are capable of using it to understand more
The reason the Ukrainian Kupyansk-Izyum offensive succeeded is very simple. The reason is that on this particular section of the front the Ukrainians had a quantitative and qualitative advantage.
The Russians were manning their right flank from Kharkov to Izyum with low numbers of second-rate troops. Rosgvardia internal (police) troops and Lugansk militias, backed by detachments of Russian army regulars (eg for artillery, air defense, and tank support).
Not only was their front line thinly manned, but the Russians had no mobile reserve close by.
Against these, the Ukrainians struck with 4-5 airborne and mechanized brigades.
There was no stopping the Ukrainians, particularly since they were quite happy to drive into the Russian rear at speed and bypassing Russians defenses — knowing that owing to their numerical superiority these could be dealt with 2nd and 3rd echelons.
Initially, the Russian MoD publicly advertised that it was rushing reinforcements to the sector in large convoys and even with helicopters.

However, the Russians quickly realized that the battle was lost. Even if they had the forces to repel the Ukrainians on paper, these were too far and couldn’t arrive in time to change the outcome.
The decision was made to order a general retreat and avoid an even worse catastrophe. Russia gave up nearly 10,000 sq km, largely without a fight. The fighting was most intense during the first 3 days as the Ukrainians were advancing into depth towards Kupyansk. Once the Ukrainians reached Kupyansk the Russians simply started evacuating everything to the north and south of if, to behind the Oskil river.
The 5D predictions that the Russian mobile reserve would maul the “overextended” Ukrainian spearheads did not come true.
On the contrary. There weren’t even mobile reserves available to even just plug the gaps.
The extent of the Russian “success” consisted of not getting themselves encircled and losing numerous men as POWs.
However, the Russians did leave behind a great deal of heavy equipment such as tanks. Many of these were vehicles in repair centers awaiting maintenance, but also whatever the retreating troops concluded would hinder them during their retreat.
Understand that while the retreat was ordered by the center it was not centrally coordinated. There was no time for that. Especially around Kupyansk and Izyum this was no organized, phased retreat where large units cooperate to cover each other as they fall back in stages. No, this was a speedy escape where troops raced to reach safety as individual companies and platoons.
This does not stop the 5D ghouls from claiming that the Ukrainians paid for their gains with massive losses. This is transparently false. Where in between abandoning 10,000 sq km and 50-100 tanks in just 5 days would the Russians have had the time to inflict heavy losses?
In fact, Moscow revealed that the loss in Kharkov stung indeed as it all of a sudden started dismantling Ukraine’s electric grid that had been left unmolested for 7 months:

For me the two unknowns that this offensive definitely answered are:
- The Ukrainians proved they can handle complex offensive operations.
- The Russian Aerospace Forces proved they can’t keep Ukrainians from concentrating massive forces needed for offensives, and then operating those forces in daylight.
Now that we understand what the Ukrainian quantitative and qualitative superiority in the Kharkov region led to, it would be pertinent to ask how did that superiority come about?
A part of the explanation lies in Russian intelligence failure. The Russians failed to assign the proper significance to a Ukrainian buildup opposite of Izyum-Kupyansk and continued to weaken that area in order to prop up Kherson.
The other part of the explanation lies in the fact that over the past several months Ukrainian military power has moderately increased while Russia’s own has slightly declined.
The Russians still have the land forces they started the war with minus the losses they suffered, while the Ukrainians have been expanding their army.
This trend of Kiev adding to its military power while Russia’s stagnates or diminishes slightly will continue until one of these two happen:
- Russia starts using its conscript manpower
- Ukraine hits the ceiling on how many troops it can sustain
Where is the inflection point, where Ukraine’s forces actually outmatch Russia’s all along the battlefield and not just where the Russians help them out by being maldeployed oweing to an intelligence failure?
The staggering success of the Kupyansk-Izyum offensive may indicate that this point is closer than we thought.
The 5D bozos are correct to say that the outcome of one battle is largely “irrelevant”. What really matters is the underlying correlation of forces and the direction in which that correlation is trending.
However, surely outcomes of battles have the potential to reveal something about this correlation of forces?
If the Russians felt they had to cannibalize their positions at Kharkov to this extreme extent in order to properly prop up Kherson does that have the potential to reveal something about their force availability?
Surely if Ukraine launches an offensive that succeeds beyond anyone’s expectations (even Kiev was surprised), then that has the potential to convey new information about the correlation of forces and where it is trending?
Somehow it is precisely the people who were the most adamant that Ukraine could never pull off such a feat, who are also most likely to come up with rationalizations why such a feat warrants no introspection and no reexamination of their assumptions.
It is precisely the people who were caught *the most by surprise* by the success of the offensive who will also be the most adamant that this shock outcome has zero new information value.
Which is why they are the people who are always wrong. Because they’re not malleable. Because nothing, not even the biggest missed calls can force them to evolve their understanding. As a consequence, they exit the world as dumb as they entered it.

Kupyansk was taken in March !!
Izyum was taken in April !!
The “conscripts” from Luhansk kingdom and Donetsk kingdom were kidnapped from the streets and from their houses in March !!
In April, in May, in June, in July, in August, no defense lines were established !! Allegedly, there was a plan and attempt to take Andriivka, but where was that force that was expected to accomplish that task ?
In April, in May, in June, in July, in August, the “conscripts” were not given proper uniforms, proper weapons; they were not given training, not even a class-room lecture on how to take on a platoon and capture an object !!
The attitude of the Moscow ruling class towards the “conscripts” was that they didn’t even count them as dead. Pan-Slav racism towards the southerners. (only an enemy of the people of Russia would grab a sailor from Siberia, put him in a Caterpillar for a week, then ship him to Ukraine to operate a T-64 in a battle) Stalin’s son was in uniform somewhere near a battle, where is the children of Shoigu and the high-command and the siloviki enforsers ?
The whole-entire Russian military structure is rotten to the core —headed by a life-time government-lackey in a generalissimo uniform. Incompetence, corruption, greed, cowardice is rampant. The only thing they know is what they told each other —if they out-number the opponent 10 to 1, if they have ten times more equipment, they can overwhelm the opponent. They would never consider attacking an opponent equal in size, and don’t even mention going up against someone who is bigger and stronger. No strategy, no tactics, no finesse; only brute overwhelming force. Verdun and the German strategy is as far as they progressed in their studies —if we use 50-times more canons than the opponent, fire one hundred rounds for every soldier on the other side and hope they all die before the turret overheats, then we can win. (it didn’t work at Verdun) —If we had another million soldiers, we could subdue the Ukrainian army….. but if we have to rely on talent and skill, then we are the one-legged man in the contest
The whole military structure haven’t produced a field general who could outsmart an enemy of superior force —they didn’t even produce one who could outsmart a weaker force. Talent is not only NOT rewarded, but frowned upon as something dangerous —dangerous to the status of peace-time parade generals. Six months went by and the Expeditionary Force haven’t produced even one outstanding field commander —in every other army, war brings the cream to the top, not in the Russian Army.
The mythology-makers cite the war against Napoleon and the war against Hitler. Even if it were true, you cannot live on past glory and triumph. The problem is, myth-makers leave out the essence of the story— it was NOT the Russian army but the Allies (organized by England) who defeated Napoleon (the Russian soldiers were merely used by England for their own purposes); it was NOT Russia, but the Allies (organized by England) who defeated Hitler. Yes, the Russian soldiers got a parade, Zhukov rode his horse in Red Square, but Stalin, and especially the Russian soldier, lost.
How has the Russian Army fared when Russia wasn’t with the Allies ? Past performance is no guarantee of future success, but it gives a hint. If we looked at the glorious history of the Russian armed forces without the allies, perhaps we could forecast the predicaments of the present. How has the Army of Russia performed between 1950 and 2021 ?
110 years ago Peter Stolypin and his reforms could have saved the monarchy, the royal family, the people of Empire Russia; but the Russian ruling class couldn’t/wouldn’t tolerate such reforms, so the people of Russia, the royal family and some of the ruling class were rewarded with bolshevik terror.
If the Russian army had been reformed in the 1990s and in the zero decade, today it would be a capable efficient fighting force —the ruling class couldn’t tolerate such reform.
Why hasn’t V.V. Putin, Grand-Protector of all that is Slav, reformed the economy of Russia along fascist lines, instead of the oligarchy economy which was already there in 1999 but grew exponentially during his reign ?
General Strelkov Girkin is relentless:
Лично я осторожно предполагаю вероятным: основной удар на Запорожском фронте, вспомогательные —между Донецком и Горловской, в районе Докучаевска, на Бериславском направлении Херсонского фронта, а также непосредственно в районе Херсона. Сроки наступления мне не известны, однако полагаю, что времени на укрепление позиций и перегруппировку войск на угрожаемые направления ВСУ нашим войскам вряд ли подарит.
Если продолжать так воевать, как на протяжении шести месяцев воюют наши войска под руководством МО РФ — то мы (РФ) потерпим в итоге сокрушительное поражение в этой войне.
Your reference to Verdun is a point of note. Strelkov made a similar reference but I confess that at the time, I was too daft to understand it or how it related to RF forces. The passage of time clarified things: Strelkov was (and you are also,) correct. A Verdun-type strategy is what they were relying upon until a week ago (perhaps they still are?).
I didn’t agree with or believe Marko at the start of the war-not-a-war, and I thought he (and Strelkov) was unjustifiably pessimistic. I confess to you now that I naively believed reports by Sladkov, War Gonzo Project, and RT. Marko was right all along – and I was very wrong. Shamefully wrong.
How Russia is going to navigate the current fiasco I have no idea and I cannot imagine, as all of my previous beliefs have been proven to be altogether false.
If more where like you…. Here some other good sources…
Putin will not last this decade bc he is a fraud bc he does not run it all, but these people run it all:
The Committee of 300
(the first 20-25pages are enough to get soem ahaha moments and to begin te see the big picture)
Many thanks for the information resources, my friend – I sincerely appreciate it! = )
Fair enough Marko. While I am Neutral, and have zero skin in the fight, the truth is one can never underestimate, nor overestimate one’s opponent.
But now it’s plan “B” for the RF, at least as far as I can see from my armchair far away from the fighting. The “partial” cut off of the Ukrainian force by hitting the dams and the reinforcements of the RF coming into the fray will make this an epic battle for both sides.
“This trend of Kiev adding to its military power while Russia’s stagnates or diminishes slightly will continue until one of these two happen:
Russia starts using its conscript manpower
Ukraine hits the ceiling on how many troops it can sustain”
It is NATO that sustains the ukrainian armed forces,not the ukranian state.As long as the trend continues the ukranians,or rather galizian neonazis that run the deep state in Kiev,will provide the battlefield itself and the blood , conscripting even women and little children if need be, and the West the money,equipment and generally the logistics plus an untouchable deep rear.Oh,i forgot the advisors,technical experts and the scums serving in the “legions”(here the galizian nazis consciously use the early to mid war title of the dutch,belgian etc waffen SS formations).
Russia on the other hand shows no stomach to abandon the policy(emphasis given) of the half war that if continued mathematically leads to total defeat by next summer at the latest.
Btw,the first commenter repeats the known and long disproven western bs about soviet union that without the allies would have lost the war,blah,blah,blah,godless bolsheviks,stalin bad,blah,blah,blah,etc etc.Drop the Beevorian bs and start with some Glantz i say.
Just stop. It’s getting to the point where it feels like you’re making fun of a retarded person. Yes anyone with half a brain figured out that the Russian SMO is the most half-assed and sad military operation from a “major power” in God knows how long. Kharkov was the turning point and the hits keep on coming. Ukraine shelling the administration building in central Kherson City, shelling downtown Donetsk, faking some new war crime, just today. Not to mention attacking Russian villages near Belgorod some days ago. Russia burst a dam to then do nothing. SMO going according to plan, nothing to worry about. People in military schools will be studying this war for decades to come to figure out what not to do when invading a country
Anyone have any idea of why this is so: Russian Air Force “proved they can’t keep Ukrainians from concentrating massive forces needed for offensives, and then operating those forces in daylight.”
That’s the biggest mystery for me: Ukr has (we are told) no air defenses and no operating fixed wing aircraft available. So what gives? – is the Russian Air Force just taking this war off?
Meanwhile as an intellectual exercise I continue to monitor the 5D guys – I read just a “probing operation… under-manned [Ukr] ….” and this as of Sept 13: “practically a given that if the Ukrainians remain around Kharkov and Izyum they will be pulverized by massive Russian artillery” … we will see.
Ukraine was gifted enormous stocks of manpads, shoulder fired missiles that prevent Russian aircraft from flying at normal altitudes. Ukraine also has Soviet era S-300 systems that the Russians are afraid of, and which prevent Russian aircraft from flying over most of Ukraine.
In a normal war, the S-300s would be active and scanning for targets, which would allow Russian missiles to find them through their active radar signatures. Now, NATO has awacs flying all around Ukraine’s borders scanning real time Russian flight info, and feeding it directly to Ukrainian S-300s. So the S-300s are “off” until just a few minutes before they fire, they don’t need to scan for Russian aircraft, NATO does that for them. Russia can’t shoot down NATO awacs because they are not at war with NATO and those awacs are flying around, not inside, Ukraine or Russia.
The result is Russian airpower is limited to making very low altitude tactical sorties to avoid manpads and other Ukrainian anti-air systems.
Oh yeah, apparently Russia has very crappy satellite intel. It’s one of the few countries that has it at all, but I read they have like 2 or 3 satellites for military intel and can’t even see through clouds. US satellite intel blows it out of the water and data is fed directly to Ukrainians
“That’s the biggest mystery for me: Ukr has (we are told) no air defenses and no operating fixed wing aircraft available. So what gives? – is the Russian Air Force just taking this war off?”
Yes and no.
The UAF have plentiful air defenses to punish low-flying aircraft and defend urban areas. They simply have nothing to deal with operational-level missile strikes and lack the capacity to utilize them. To be fair, anti-air defense systems have struggled with those for decades – just look up the horrendous track record of the Patriot. However, aircraft are very expensive and sanctions have constrained the inflow of vital parts necessary to construct them. It would be a coup if even a few got shot down or damaged. So they tend to employ them in the safest possible situations, like attacking the first UAF wave that arrived in Kupyansk.
“Meanwhile as an intellectual exercise I continue to monitor the 5D guys – I read just a “probing operation… under-manned [Ukr] ….” and this as of Sept 13: “practically a given that if the Ukrainians remain around Kharkov and Izyum they will be pulverized by massive Russian artillery” … we will see.”
Yeah, we’ll see.
“The Russians were manning their right flank from Kharkov to Izyum with low numbers of second-rate troops. Rosgvardia internal (police) troops and Lugansk militias, backed by detachments of Russian army regulars (e.g. for artillery, air defense, and tank support).”
Yes. The answer why they made this decision is obvious.
The majority of south and southeastern Kharkiv is open steppe with sprinkled settlements. It possesses nothing important in terms of industrial production or geographical advantage. In fact, any occupying force is inherently vulnerable in this position – you cannot hide or protect any concentration of forces for an offensive operation, and the geography negates any hope of a defender’s advantage. Even numerical superiority is enfeebled by the real possibility of getting surrounded, especially since Russian BTGs have a large contingent wrapped up in artillery.
Additionally, they gave up on Izyum being the road to Kramatorsk some time ago. The UAF had successfully bunkered down in the forest southwest of it, threatening the flank if troops moved south. From its initial occupation the number of BTGs in Izyum had dropped from 20 to 1. Since August Bakhmut has become the focus of attention.
In general Kharkiv presents a dilemma to Russian command. You still want to exert control over this territory for nominal reasons. But it’s useless as a staging ground for, well, anything and it requires way too much investment to make secure. You don’t want your best troops being idle when Soledar and Kherson are the strategically important parts of the theaters (Kharkiv is not) and they are active.
“The extent of the Russian “success” consisted of not getting themselves encircled and losing numerous men as POWs.”
And this is a very notable success considering that the offensive maneuvers executed by the Ukranian forces are expressly intended to cut off retreat paths, supply lines, and reinforcement routes. What we saw was straight out of the Wehrmacht’s playbook during their invasions of France and Poland. This isn’t a pejorative: most offensive military doctrine in the West is inspired or derived from Germany’s use of combined arms, stressing mechanized infantry for increased mobility, and emphasis on decisive forward action. Second-rate troops are generally unable to organize a retreat under fire, especially when the opposing forces are trying to flank them at every opportunity. Even regular troops would be captured en masse if they were caught off-guard.
“There was no stopping the Ukrainians, particularly since they were quite happy to drive into the Russian rear at speed and bypassing Russians defenses — knowing that owing to their numerical superiority these could be dealt with 2nd and 3rd echelons.”
Wrong again. This is the general tenure of Western maneuver warfare regardless of force concentration. The first echelon breaks through the frontline and envelops a pocket to trap and isolate defenders, while the second or third one advances forward to strike at operational depth. You don’t need superior forces to pull this off; a coordinated and disciplined thrust can throw the front line into disarray and make it crumble.
“This does not stop the 5D ghouls from claiming that the Ukrainians paid for their gains with massive losses. This is transparently false. Where in between abandoning 10,000 sq km and 50-100 tanks in just 5 days would the Russians have had the time to inflict heavy losses?”
Um…it’s quite simple. When an army advances as quickly as the UAF did, they lack the capacity to position and synchronize close air support, artillery (besides long-range systems like HIMARs), and air strikes. The former two lag behind since they require infantry support to secure their positions; the latter is delayed or preemptively used because local conditions change too quickly to avoid hitting your own men. The spearhead becomes exposed to defensive artillery, missile strikes, and air strikes as it’s far easier to coordinate and anticipate your own troops’ movement: they will only stay still or fall back. High casualty rates are a common pattern if the offensive party lacks air superiority. Just compare the Ardennes offensive, Tet offensive, and Kursk to the Gulf War and Iraq theaters. Thanks to U.S. air units striking at operational depth and disrupting defenses, U.S. forces could make these bold moves with few losses.
The UAF, by contrast, couldn’t do this as they don’t have an air force that can meaningfully contribute. Their NATO instructors have zero experience dealing with mobile screening forces falling back into massive artillery and rocket barrages. The Korean War was the last time a Western army faced anything resembling an industrial peer; meanwhile, U.S. military theory lacks such countermeasures in practice because they’ve always enjoyed armor and air superiority. So unsurprisingly the UAF + Western mercenaries suffered horrendous casualties. This was corroborated by Ukrainian sources BTW.
I also highly doubt there were “hundreds” of tanks abandoned in the Kharkiv region. If the General Staff wasn’t planning to attack through Izyum/southern Kharkiv or hold the territory, there wouldn’t be lots of tanks there in the first place. Not in the countryside where repair crews and refueling is hard to come by.
So cut the hyperbole and stop engaging in doom-mongering. The UAF made a successful tactical strike, Russia made a successful tactical retreat. 90% of the land captured is nigh-pointless for both of them from an operational and strategic level (PR for Ukraine though!). Izyum, Kupyansk, and Liman are really the key points in the region and we’ll see how the fighting goes there.
“This trend of Kiev adding to its military power while Russia’s stagnates or diminishes slightly will continue until one of these two happen:
Russia starts using its conscript manpower…”
Wrong. Won’t try to explain why.
My take: conscription, of any significance, will not happen.
The cabal in Kremlin lost the war. The only thing they are working now on is how to extract themselves from the debacle without losing their power and wealth. Freedom and heads after that, most likely.
as a starting point.
That the West, Ukraine, and NATO are fighting Russian missiles and shells with human lives!
This is NATO strategy against Russians!!!
‘attacking’ an area where zero Russian troops were stationed isnt an offensive, its an attempt for a headline after a disaster (Kherson) The fact that what was left of the 35K counter offesnsive strike force got held up by Rosvgardia for 3 days in Balaklaya doesn’t bode well and the massive losses sustained (25 to 27K out of the 35K) has left the ukies in a dead end unable to expand or go any further. You can’t win a war without fighting men. I’m not buying the Anti Empire fantasies, although it’s always good to hear an alternative view non of it strikes a chord, Ukies have massively underperformed and in 6 months this is their only ‘victory’ which has left them with pretty much nothing and having to defend flat open spaces where any trees will soon be stripped of their cover. Nah, ‘SMO’ still chewing them up and spitting them out. Russia can keep at this for years, Ukies will eventually run out of trainable men and western equipment.
All conventional theories of military strategy say Russia needs two million men or more in the Ukraine theatre to do succesful offensive operations now the Ukraine is mobilized. It would be better to have more than two million. If you accept this war is as serious as WWI or WWII for Russia, which it is, three million men for the Ukraine front is no big deal. Russia can win this war will far less resources this time. But still needs 2+ million for Ukraine. There is no way around the numbers. No other thing or strategy can compensate for not having more men.
Someone who spoke to Russian military men directly told me there’s a ‘truth’ that isn’t being communicated to the public. I’m guessing that isn’t confined to any one side. Obviously the Russians don’t have as much under control as the frat boys with Attitude on Twitter imply. But even with NATO-US on their side, Ukraine isn’t walking away from this as a winner.
What a joke you pro empire, racist supremacist global Jewish Judeo Nazi satanic slave empire dictatorship.
One area where the Judeo Nazi empire is still a superpower is in lies and propaganda. This site is good at that, fooling those who don‘t do their own research.
The great victory of the empire. Throw 50 k soldiers at Russian lines, lose over 25 k of them so far, capture some fields and few towns and proclaim victory.
This what Hitler did losing entire armies, millions of men Germany could not afford to lose, if Germany wanted to defeat Russia in world War 2. Judeo Nazis Zelensky, Kolomoisky etc., are making the exact same mistakes.
Russia lost very few men but was able to destroy vast numbers of Ukrainian men and equipment and is in the process of destroying all the reserves of the Ukrainian Zio Nazi army.
One mistake Russia did make among others is in not destroying Ukraine’s leadership military command and control infrastructure.
Russia is no in the process of training another 200 k volunteer contract soldiers. This will be sufficient to conquer all of Ukraine and all NATO armies there most likely leading to the breakup of ZIO Jewish supremacist Nazi NATO and the ZIO Jewish supremacist Nazi EU which should be the end of the racist supremacist global Jewish Judeo Nazi satanic slave empire dictatorship .
