The Russians are taking advantage of their superior firepower and air support to hot the Ukrainian military hard.

The Russians also have 105 BTGs in Ukraine with another 45 in the wings being cycled out for keeping troops fresh.
Most of those BTGs were apparently uder maned even at the beginning, it's far worse now. Not sure where that 45 in the wings number is from. Trained and motivated manpower is the biggest constraint the Russians are facing now in the battlefield.

Russia has not suffered the level of casualties stated by NATO. Most of it is propaganda. They started with 160,000 and probably have 12-15,000 KIA (including DPR/LPR). So overall losses aren't that great.

Lots of paramilitary forces have joined in as levies from various republics that are part of the Russian Federation.

Conscripts are also being cycled secretly to fight in Ukraine. On paper they might be guards at some backwater military base but in reality they are part of the BTGs for under the table pay.

Ukrainians have mobilised all reserves and have no firepower, fuel, assets to push back Russians. If US Intelligence backs out, there will be a theatre wide collapse of AFU in days.

Yup. You need multiple avenues of attack. So more land is needed before moving forward.

One pontoon bridge might fail but 5-6 others will slip through.

It has become like Takeshi's Castle.

From what i understand they don't have even one intact bridge in that area, inspite of multiple attempts.

'chickens have come home to roost' . Massive recession on the horizon, no one can escape. How stupid were west to think they can destroy Russia without any impact on them. Inflation was already there before the war but war has made it extremely bad.
Inflation soars AGAIN to 9% - the highest since 1982 - as Rishi Sunak warns he 'can't protect people completely
Inflation soared to a 40-year high today as Rishi Sunak faces massive pressure to come up with cost-of-living help.The headline CPI rate rose to 9 per cent in April - up from 7 per cent in March and the highest level since 1982.The Bank of England expects the rate will get even worse, peaking at 10.25 per cent during the final quarter of the year amid biggest squeeze on incomes since records began in the 1950s. That would be more than five times its 2 per cent target.
Impact on world poverty will be massive. My heart breaks especially for the poor of this world. Millions and Millions rely on cheap bread all over the world. 😢

A Former Chinese Ambassador’s Trenchant Comments on Ukraine War Attract Notice

"Career diplomat Gao Yusheng spoke openly about how disastrous the war has been for Russia, but his comments have since been quietly deleted."

"According to Gao, the odds are stacked so heavily against Putin that “it’s only a matter of time before Russia is fully defeated.” "


Even the Chinese are saying things are really bad for Russia.

Russian sources allege that 11 soldiers managed to hold of a position for long enough for reinforcements against a a much larger Ukranian force.

Reminds me of the Battle of Badgam, 1947.

Imagine if putin hadn't sent VDV to Kiev and have them massacred. :lehappy:
The Armchair general in me is wondering why they didn't use VDV's air assault forces to secure river crossing (at least not that I'm aware of) 🤔.
