Thats never a problem. Was never a problem for the soviets or Maoist China. Reason being, you just give those people in the military who's seen the outside world, more creature comforts than your population enjoys, thus making them a stakeholder in the current system - if they work to overthrow the current system, they risk destabilising their 'far higher than average' means of living within the system.Or pose a threat in the form of a coup de etat once they start seeing the world outside of North Korea and realize that they had been lied to. Its a double edge sword for Kim.
Take those numbers with a bucket load of salt, just like Russian casualty numbers out out by Ukraine.. 668 Ukranian troops killed per day is like Ukraine loosing thr number of troops India lost in Kargil every day, with Ukraine being the one entrenched and defending on most fronts, and there is not much infantry movement along any of the front.. In spite of heavy artillery fire in the Donbass, not a lot of entrenched enemies die..
This is just like the Russian MOD statements with Russia destroying more than the total number of HIMARS ( 16) delivered by US to Ukraine..

At the outset of the conflict, we were sold the idea of Syrian forces turning up in Ukraine so far it is just load of bollocks

North Korea Offers Russia 100,000 ‘Volunteers’ for War on Ukraine, Russian State TV Says
Putin simps will give excuses of NATO fighting Russia more and more rather than Ukraine if they keep losing strategic defence systems.
Casualties are higher in disorganized retreat.. Ukranian retreats as well as the russian retreat from Keiv was pretty organized. ALSO, RUSSIAN Casualties were high when they were trying to hold Bucha and other suburbs of Kiev..the 600 dead per day figures are quite believable for one simple fact :
The one constant of war for the last 5000 years, is that in 99% cases, armies take the most damage when retreating after disengaging from a battle ( this is different from retreating prior to engagement- where one goes 'oh crap, we dont wanna fight here, lets fuck off').
Even in THIS war, russia took the most casualties while retreating from the Kiev front.
Well what has ukraine been doing in donbass ? series of retreats after retreats AFTER making contact with russian BTGs. Not one pitched battle, not one 'we all die in the trenches or kill the enemy'.
So logic & precedence tells, that Ukrainian casualties are going to be disproportionately high, due to the continuous retreat post engagement conditions.
casualties are higher in disorganised retreats than organised ones (no brainer)- but casaulties are STILL higher in organised retreats, post contact with the enemy, than actual fighting, in overwhelming instances.Casualties are higher in disorganized retreat.. Ukranian retreats as well as the russian retreat from Keiv was pretty organized. ALSO, RUSSIAN Casualties were high when they were trying to hold Bucha and other suburbs of Kiev..
Wrong again, Ukrainians are the only ones dying, along with a handful of mercenaries that have a death wish. It started as a proxy war and will end as a proxy war. You don't seem to know the definition of that term, so look it up.
This excuse has been around for a long time. Ever since the first days of the war, after they failed to "capture Kyiv in three days."
You're just repeating western koolaid. Nobody on the Russian side thought there would be no resistance. You can't just accept that Crimea hates Ukraine and that's why there was no resistance. Not to mention since there was an ongoing civil war for the last 8 years, only and idiot would think there would be no resistance. The narrative was to make the expectations so low for Ukraine that anything would be considered a great success. For example them surrendering in 2 weeks, is that low enough? Because that's what was said by the western msm, and they went further by saying they "knew" Russia thought Ukraine would surrender in a few weeks. They never explained how they knew this.This excuse has been around for a long time. Ever since the first days of the war, after they failed to "capture Kyiv in three days."
Captured Russian soldiers, during interrogations, said that this operation would be similar to the capture of the Crimea - no resistance.
But now, in fact, this operation is no different from how Nestor Makhno, in 1918, drove the White Guards and the Red Army in the Kakhov steppes. Also a mobile offensive. Only instead of cavalry and tachanks - motorized equipment is used.
But this is on the southern front On the eastern front, heavy MLRS began to appear more often. This means that the shortage of rockets has been overcome.
