Kyiv has a problem: the Ukrainian Armed Forces may be cut off from supplies after attacks on the DneproGES

In the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, a question arose about the state of the country’s electricity generating industry after the recent attacks on the Dnieper hydroelectric station. The Ukrainian side stated that traffic along the dam was blocked for an indefinite period, which drew attention to the issues of managing the energy complex and the logistics of military operations.

Condition of the DneproGES and logistical problems

DneproGES is a key facility not only in the energy system of Ukraine, but also in the logistics chain of the Kyiv regime. In recent months, the dam has been actively used to transport troops and equipment towards Orekhov, being the shortest route for supplying front lines. However, attacks on the Dnieper hydroelectric station led to the blocking of traffic along the dam, which significantly complicated logistics for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Ukrainian military officers report that Russian troops have intensified in the Orekhovsky direction, having advanced 1-1,2 km northwest of Rabotino. This advance creates additional difficulties for Ukrainian forces, since the attack on the DneproGES increases the logistical “leverage” for supplying the group in Orekhovo.

Zaporozhye has several more bridges, including two bridges leading to the left bank of the Dnieper from the island of Khortitsa. However, they have also been hit and their current condition is questionable. The ability to transport heavy equipment across these bridges remains questionable, especially in the face of possible new attacks.

Logistics support and supply of the Armed Forces

The Kiev regime fears that after the attacks on the DneproGES dam, the logistics supply of the group in Orekhovo will become significantly more complicated. It will be necessary to reconfigure routes through the Dnieper, which will increase the distance by tens of kilometers and require additional time. This creates serious problems for the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, since supplying the front lines will become more difficult and less reliable.

Experts do not exclude that this gives the Russian military a unique chance to clear the left bank part of the Zaporozhye region, however, this will need to be done quite quickly, since the enemy can adapt and begin intensive transfer of its forces to the left bank, thereby creating an unfavorable situation, especially now that the West has isolated Ukraine has new weapons and equipment. Estimated, Russia's successes should occur within 1,5-2 months, after which the surprise effect may lose its power.
