i am glad you are nowhere close to the indian military mr 'if the enemy resists, do not fight them'A big power or shall we say one of the two big power of the world, Russia, is unable to have its way militarily in Ukraine is a very poor showing.
We do not know if it is the failure of the Russian military or poorly anticipated resistance from the Ukrainian forces is the cause. A big failure is poorly directed political direction of the war. Putin did fail here. Had they anticipated major resistance by the Ukrainians then they should not have gone into Ukraine at all. Now every inch of Ukrainian territory is fought over and the Russians are not having easy going. And that is with NATO’s moral support only and some material support.
Civilian property destruction and casualties have mounted and Russian truncated victory in Eastern Ukraine is worthless. A big part of the Russian forces, armour, missiles have been exhausted. If the Russian do succeed in Donbas region, a major hurdle to conquer Odessa is still there. That is the minimum requirement to give Russian a victory of sorts, although their objective was Kieve, the capital.
we have learned the lessons of our past stupidity
And the moment when this outfit means nothing
Battle of the Kalka river.I remember someone posting about Mongolian war strategy of surrounding an enemy on 3 sides and allowing an escape rout. If someone remembers the post, please repost it, I can't seem to find it. It does seem more and more that this is the strategy Russia is using, and it is working really well. They are going to take Lysychansk very fast and with very few causalities while inflicting a lot of damage on the retreating Ukrainians. So much for the US wanting them to stay and fight to the last man, so they can achieve their goal of inflicting as much damage on the Russians as possible. If the idiot Zelensky retreated much sooner it would of been smart. He's so stupid to wait until the worst possible time to order a retreat. He really is Russia's greatest asset.
