Reserve Colonel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, military expert Pyotr Nedzelsky believes that a stalemate has developed at the front in Ukraine.

The colonel said that, despite the mobilization in the aggressor country, Putin’s army still does not have enough strength for an offensive. However, Ukraine cannot relax, since it is dealing with an enemy that has more population, equipment and weapons.
The expert recalled that the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces did not take place, since the defenders did not receive the necessary types of weapons from the West, in addition, The Russian Armed Forces still dominate the skies.
Nedzelsky believes that there is a stalemate at the front when neither the Defense Forces nor the invaders can advance. Therefore, to make a difference on the battlefield, the defenders need aviation, in particular F-16 fighters.
