Even if this village is completely insignificant, it will be used to boost morale and cancel out the deaths of thousands of soldiers Zelensky sent to commit suicide by Russia. Cancel out the bungled attempt on the Zaporozhie NPP.
That Ukr propaganda is completely delusional and the many who listen to it more so is obvious, but they will to continue to throw themselves like lemmings to die to Russian artillery and air-power unless their morale is blown to pieces and their faith in their foreign puppet leadership is broken. And there's a fantastic opportunity to do so by the conclusion of this offensive by simply denying them any territorial gains whatsoever; or better yet commit to a counter-attack and throw them back from their starting positions, break their defensive lines and attempt to follow through into a rout. Force their units into a chaotic retreat and their morale along with them.
It's time to end this meat-grinder that London and Washington organized and their servants in Kiev continue to implement day after day for their own people. It does not serve Russia's best interests among other things, to end up in control of this barren shell-shocked land, where every male between 18-50 years old is either dead, crippled or has emigrated, and the rest are consumed by grief or anger.
Russia must call for full mobilization and launch a winter offensive with its greatest power.
Russia reminds me of Germany in World War 2 delaying the Total War for fear of generating unrest in the population. Serious mistake.
Russian youth must get used to war. The world changed.
Another possibility. This state of affairs suits the Putin government and we do not know.
