The claim is Russia has 4x more troops in the Kherson region now compared to 2 weeks ago in anticipation of this counter offensive. That said, you also wonder if Ukraine has enough man power and equipment to at least probe/harass the thinned Eastern front now that Russia move people out.
Winter is coming. Russia, of all countries, ought to be thinking about that.
When I was in the Army in Europe we trained for fighting in the winter. It well and truly sucks. It sucks worse if your supply lines are vulnerable. Among others, petroleum gets eaten up very quickly with the engine idling. The Ukrainian winter is worth a few divisions to the Ukrainian defenders.
It is obvious that Russian AD is pretty poor. Another myth bites the dust.
