The major offensive of the Ukrainian forces had to be postponed due to the weather, the slow supply of equipment and the shortage of ammunition, APA reports citing the Washington Post.

The "leakage" of secret documents also played a negative role, WP said.

"The expected spring offensive is seen as an opportunity for Ukraine this year to liberate territory held by Russian forces, the total area of which is about one-fifth of the country's territory. But the operation has been delayed by weather conditions, slow supplies of equipment and a shortage of ammunition, raising fears of a stalemate ", the publication says.

WP writes that the counteroffensive makes it difficult to leak US military and intelligence documents. After all, the documents that got into the network contained detailed data about the state and capabilities of the Ukrainian army, in particular, about weak points in air defense.

The mass media notes that many Ukrainians fear that if Kyiv is unable to liberate significant territories, it will have to go to negotiations with the Russian Federation, being in a disadvantageous position.
