New tactical advances that confirm the weakenss of the enemy. Two days ago the ukrops gave up without fight outposts in the Svetlodarsk arc. There's video to confirm it.
Today in Donetsk sector another 500 meter advance that straigthens the front and removes a wedge, near Peski, NW of the city.
No longer a couple of isolated incidents, seems to fit with a weakening of Ukrainian defense lines, either from scarcity of troops, or lack of will to fight, or both
Hard ukrainian attacks in the coastal sector, several breakthrough attempts
Confirming shortages of troops, Ucrainian police are told to volunteer for a tour of duty in the front or be fired, and a new call up of recruits for National Guard
Good news, probably related to this:Ukraine hollows out
Since independence and especially since the Maidan coup Ukraine has experienced a population collapse unprecedented in post Second World War Europe......
Unprecedented would be Russia's considerable population loss during the 1990's and 2000's.
There are presently close to two million Ukrainian pseudo-refugees in Poland alone. In the city of Wroclaw they allegedly make around 10% of the population, and that is one of the largest cities in Poland.
If the current Ukraine experiences some population loss, but if they eventually take over a large chunk of Poland, then it is not such a bad deal for them. That is apparently the aim here.
I think the article tries to make look Ukraine weaker than it is. It shows only part of the story.
Majority of Ukraine population that left isn't in Poland. Add to that, these are a mixture of political and mostly economical refugees. This is not some grand strategy of Ukraine, because as evident of what is happening in the Rada, they do not have a strategy on replacing toilet paper in the stalls of the washroom. That is if they can even obtain toilet paper.
What that bull-shit article fails to say is:
1) Ethnic Ukrainians are very influential in Poland. They are not some push around immigrants like some attempt to portray them as. They can murder you and literally get away with it; it is the German-Ukrainian mafia known as the "Civic Platform" which enjoys very heavy support from the EU leadership. They are heavily present in Poland's so-called "justice" system.
2) It is Poland that pays for the higher education of 25 000 Ukrainian students. Polish students do not get paid for any education in Ukraine.
3) They bring their kids to Poland, and even if they are illegally the Polish government pays them money for these kids as if these were real citizens.
4) Polish government also pays lots of money to the Ukrainian government, Poland does not get anything in exchange.
5) Erection of illegal Ukrainian nationalist monuments in Poland, totally tolerated by the consecutive Polish governments, while the legal monument to the ethnic Polish victims of the UPA and SS from the Huta Pieniacka recently was destroyed.
6) Polish military has also dispatched various equipment to its Ukrainian counterpart, of course Poland also got nothing in exchange.
So who do you think is the real vassal here?
I think the articles is very misleading.
