This requires the accumulation of a huge amount of Western weapons.

A counteroffensive by Ukrainian troops is possible no earlier than mid-June, only after the accumulation of a huge amount of weapons from Western partners.
Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, announced this on the air of an information telethon.
“This weaponry should be enough for at least several brigades, fully re-equipped, trained, coordinated and well-coordinated. After that, it is already possible to start advancing,” Arestovich said.
The adviser to the head of the President’s Office explained that the first deliveries of weapons, which are intended for protection, are expected from Western partners at the end of May.
“The first weapon that can stop the enemy will come to Ukraine in late May or early June. Therefore, a counteroffensive is possible no earlier than mid-June. Most likely, it will be the second half of June,” Arestovich said.
Recall, on the eve of the Ukrainian military recaptured a number of settlements in the Kharkiv region from the Russian troops. We are talking about Upper Roganka, Russian Lozova, Slobodskaya and Prilestnaya.
At the same time, the Ministry of Defense reports an increase in the intensity of the Russian offensive in eastern Ukraine simultaneously in all directions, their greatest activity is in Slobozhansky and Donetsk.
