‘Ready & Waiting’: Russian Soldier on Hyped-up Ukrainian ‘Counteroffensive’

The statements spread by sepate social media channels about the alleged ‘Ukraine's counteroffensive’ in the area of the special military operation were untrue, Russia's MoD said on late Thursday.
The Ukrainian armed forces will not be able to cross the Dnepr River if they launch their hyped-up counteroffensive, a Russian soldier who is serving at coastal positions near the town of Kakhovka, Kherson Region, said.

"We are aware of the counteroffensive. We are waiting, we are ready. The only way Ukrainian forces can counterattack us is by water. If even some forces swim to this shore, they will not be combat-ready at all. Our aviation is active, the artillery is active, we are ready, we will encounter them and the enemy will be defeated," he assured.
