    Depends entirely on two things.
    - do they have the reinforcements to hold the areas now captured? If not, the counteroffensive will just blow them apart. They could gamble on there not being a counteroffensive, but the Russians already made that mistake and there is no reason to repeat it.
    - can they replace their inevitable losses of men and equipment fast enough to keep the momentum up?
    Of course it also depends on the Russians' hypotethical ability to stand, or even counterattack with any meaningful force at all, but that's up to the Russians.

    I'd expect a week or two of consolidation then a new offensive on an entirely different axis. Maybe south from Z-town? Aim for Melitopol to disrupt Russian connection from Crimea to Donbass? Although rainy season is coming soon, and mud will slow everything to a crawl again. It's a pity that it sounds like the Russians are slipping the noose at Izyum, spending a couple weeks liquidating a pocket would be a wonderful use of the time.

      The Izyum defenders are cut off from resupply on the other side of the river, just lost shittons of supplies in a hasty retreat, just lost all their defensive positions, and the only major roads out of this mess take them through Lyman, which is under siege and in the wrong direction for relief, or Kupyansk, which is 2/3rd captured with the remaining defenders there ALSO forced to the other side of the river.

      Show's not over.

                Literally the only real route out is through Kupyansk. I'm not saying they'd cross the river, but they literally NEED to go through Kupyansk no matter what if they don't want to risk the back roads, which would just be a clusterfuck. They can head for Valuyki, instead of Belgorod, but the road there's still fucking through Kupyansk.

    My guess is they will establish a defensive line north of Kupyansk that takes advantsge of the relatively unhospital terrain between the Oskil and various SD tributaries east of Kharkiv. With their rear secured, they can either plow east into Luhansk and Donestk, or wheel everyone down and and push south from Zaporizhzhia.

    As effect it would be to crush Russians now the risk of overextension is too great. Ukraine needs to consolidate, bring in new troops, gear, vehicles while processing the POVs and salvaging any material left behind. Then they need to plan an entirely new offensive.

    Luckily they can focus on Kherson durection now and I sincerely doubt Russia can get their shit together. Morale is non-existent and because it isn't a war the volunteers can ditch the ranks when rotated.

    As someone who grew up in Kharkiv region, but has been living in Europe for almost 10 years now, it still feels surreal to hear the names of your places from your childhood in military context. I still remember them as “a forest with lots of mushrooms to pick up”, “a city where my aunt used to live”, “a place where we went on a high school hiking trip”, “a river I was kayaking on with my parents”. And now you see them discussed on worldwide news and even this american weapons board as a stage for a huge military operation.

        Its a very popular outdoors activity in Ukraine, but unfortunately won’t be possible to do safely for many years to come, as the forests are chock full of mines

        It's actually super popular in my area of the US. People go apeshit every spring hunting for Morels.

            Nah, Northern Half of the country, but similar conditions for mushroom season. Lots of rain, cooler but above freezing nights, and typically found around decaying trees.

    Keep in mind though that this operation does not necessarily scale up to the entire Russian-occupied territory. The frontlines in Kharkiv Oblast were defended by national guard and DPR/LPR conscripts, both a very second-rate military force, and it seems like the Kremlin neglected this sector of the front. I'd expect a lot more resistance on e.g the southern frontline (and indeed Ukrainians haven't made much progress in Kherson during the last few days) and also some exhaustion of Ukrainian troops after this rapid advance.

      They had a standing force of maybe 300 000, including a lot of units in the local guards and MP categories. They were as well equipped as any. Then an additional one million of slowly mobilized reserves that had no guns, no uniforms, no helmets, no equipment, no tanks, no AA, no arty, no field kitchens or MREs... this is where NATO supplies of older but functional equipment of all types have made one heck of a difference. Where you get the last 1.7 million soldiers from I don't know.

      If they're evacuating Volchansk rather than pulling what troops they had along the supply lines back to mount a defense there, they're abandoning the north entirely. There will be no second line of defense to fall back to.

      They'll run to the border from every position in the north supplied on the northern tracks and not wait to be threatened by Ukraine. Better to pull out on your own terms and maybe leave less shit behind than do it under fire I suppose.

      Not the dumbest thing in the world, but this effectively means the troops out of Izyum and anywhere else already in contact with the enemy are completely on their fucking own and Russia isn't going to throw up a defensive line for the retreat beyond troops snowballing as they run into eachother and maybe having a rearguard if it's an actual retreat and not a rout. Must figured it'd endanger more troops than it would save to attempt relief.

      Which is a sorry ass evaluation of troops that were meant to guard the fucking routes these guys will need to get back and won't be there anymore. Probably right, but still.

    From a French telegram, believed to have ties with the French MFA, he initially was active during the corona crisis and then started to warn about an upcoming Ukrainian war as early as August 2021.

    "The situation is catastrophic for Russia. Cities have been falling one after the other for the last 3 days, but today, everything is accelerating. Russian troops are fleeing at the sight of any soldier or vehicle with a Ukrainian flag. Messages intercepted in Luhansk ask: "What is happening in the north? Are they really coming for us next?".

    -Izum is being captured, cut off from the south, Savyntsi is falling with it. Svatove is beginning to be surrounded after Kupiansk was retaken and Russian troops decided to hole up east of the city.
    -Lyssychansk is being attacked on 2 fronts, and Ukrainian soldiers are already penetrating the city.
    -Starobilsk is being emptied, the soldiers are panicking because the north is being isolated from the east and the south, essential roads to provide food.
    -A wind of panic is blowing in the north-east, Russian troops are already preparing to leave for Belgorod.
    -The resumption of the Kherson region seems to be taking shape, Russian troops are dispersing there too.

    The momentum is in favor of Ukraine, and if Russia does not react quickly, the map of the territory of this war will change drastically in the next 24 hours."

      "Traffic jams began to form in the direction of Belgorod.

      Many troops fled and many soldiers did not respond and were suspected of desertion.
      The morale of the Russian troops is non-existent. After months of waiting, difficult survival, scarce food, hatred of the local population, isolation from all sides, flight of commanders and generals leaving them alone to defend the conquered cities ... the soldiers no longer find a reason to resist.

      The next few days will be extremely interesting."

        There's not enough from him to make a thread, he's not very active. The last time he posted was on August 30 to announce Gorbachev's death hours before it was officially announced.
        And before that, he was only active in mid-August when Ukraine started targeting airbases deep within Crimea. He's not an OSINT account, he doesn't cover rumors, military deliveries or villages being captured, only the big stuff, so he'll likely post more in the coming hours/days but only a few messages.

    All those ISW comments about the foolishness of Russia's summer offensive and how it would degrade morale and make soldiers subject to routs now seems prescient. It seems they left a lot of militia guarding that area too and those guys don't even want to be there, so them routing is going to fuck up even competent forces' ability to respond. The civilian flight also clogs up all the roads, and all the Russian transplants for civilian posts fleeing as well.
