We are not yet in WW3 like you say, yet we are no longer in the Old World that ALAMO purports either
Where we are is a very dangerous twilight zone in between and its of utmost importance for Russia to define the boundaries of the conflict and contain it. Prevent anyone else entering the war. But making threats to fry X numbers of different nationalities is not the way to do it. Simply put, if there are attacks on the Russian military, then the Russian military will respond. And where the Russian military can end up - so far anywhere on the territory of the Ukraine, and potentially now anywhere on the territory of Pridnestrovie.
Well, I would say the same, but with slightly different words.
The situation is neither as good nor as bad as described by committed sources, even if they want to do their job fair&honest.
And I suppose that the goals of the operation are clear to anyone now - yet those are not the same ones the Russkies had at the beginning.
Each time I encourage anyone to hear carefully what Putin is saying. He draws this scenario long before the war. If Ukraine won't stop behaving like a madman, it will cease to exist in its known territorial structure.
And if they will do even more stupid things - they will cease to exist as a country.
As easy as that. Openly stated a long, long time ago.
As for details, for example, there must be a balance between not showing melted Ukrainian soldiers, and showing them in the numbers we have now.
It is a bloody meatgrinder, and ordinary people with sane minds are starting simply to feel pity for them.
I see dead bodies of guys in their late 40s, unequipped, unarmed, with a mix of civilian clothes and some military ones ...
That is a picture of misery and defeat.
On the other hand, I know that those pictures are not presented to the zombified Ukro nation, and those poor bastards really believe that they are winning.
Still, it does not matter, because even if you will present them with bloodied personal documents, they will consider those as Russian fakes. That is the level of brainwashing. So they really need tons of dead corpses scattered into pieces to ignite some common sense, delivered by the orphans, widows and family members looking for the remains buried with no names somewhere in Lugansk
The other case is the propaganda attacks on Russian soil. We all know, that those are suicide missions in most of cases, and they will run out of assets very soon. Russkies are closing the corridors at the moment, with Odessa and Dnestr being taken soon, a two whole directions will be cut.
The only resupply route will be via Poland and Slovakia, as Hungary closed the border for military assistance. That is about 400 km, with few roads and railways - possible to cover from Belarus. Connecting Transdnestria opens some new possibilities either.
