Military expert and retired colonel Mikhail Timoshenko said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) may choose the Melitopol direction for the offensive in order to block Russia’s land route to Crimea and thereby disrupt the supply of the peninsula. URA.RU writes about it.

According to Tymoshenko, the purpose of such an offensive will be not only a demonstration of force, but also a real seizure of territory, since there is a plain in the Melitopol direction, which is easy to navigate.

In this case, only a bridge will remain, through which it will be difficult to supply the Crimea.

“Melitopol and Berdyansk are the sweetest things here. There is a plain, everything is visible there, it is difficult to catch on there. And then we do not have a land road to the Crimea. Only the bridge remains. Supplying Crimea is difficult,” Tymoshenko said.
