grip on eastern and central Ukraine. It looks like a baiting operation organized by NATzO, but it is rather dramatic.
The economy of Kiev regime controlled Ukraine is imploding and the LOS shelling theater must be running out of steam
as a diversionary ploy. The lack of enthusiasm is apparent from the pathetic demonstration attendance.
It is more than likely that the LDNR forces will be doing the fighting. The regime forces are demoralized and not
even an army. It is possible that eastern and central Ukraine can be lost by the regime in a cascade of defections
requiring little fighting.
Well put, my thoughts exactly! I was always perplexed (but I chose not to engage in debate) why everyone thought the Novorossiya forces needed Russia to invade to save them?
My oh my, 7 years have passed and everyone has forgotten the shellacking, 1-sided ass kicking of biblical proportions that the Ukronies were on the receiving end called the 'Debaltsevo Cauldron?'
And please don't refer to Debaltsevo as Debalt-sieve, or however you spell it...the only thing that was a 'sieve'
at that battle was the Ukronie AFVs allowing DNR/LPR anti-armor weapons to pass through Ukronie armor like water droplets! Ukronie armor welds are like Elmers glue on wet toilet paper!
For those who still remember the Debaltsevo Cauldron, in what shape or form are the Ukronies better than they were back in 2014/15? Considering all cardinal parameters, they're at least an order of magnitude worse in their current situation now in 2022 than they were back then, and in some cases possibly 2 orders of magnitude.
Just consider the following:
1.) DNR/LPR are better organized, better trained, better equipped, employ better strategies, their morale is much higher, and they're even more battle hardened now than they were back then. Their domestic military industries are much better now, and they're local economies are better too, especially because they have access to the large Russian market.
2.) Meanwhile Pukraine is much, much worse now! They're economy is a open sewer, there's been a 50% reduction in Russian gas passing through their pipes, and they can't rely on DNR/LPR coal anymore! Ukronie force organization is even more garbage, with worse strategy. They're worse equipped because their domestic military industry is nothing more than vaporware and glorified makets. They're morale is in the shitter with mass desertions, and they're now recruiting pregnant women! Let's not forget they're training is straight out of a Monty Python skit!
