Ukros look to have massively overextended themselves by rushing into a pre-prepared cauldron? Did the Russians deliberately weaken defenses knowing that the Ukros were about to throw Kharkovs garrison and reserves into a big push?
Ukro troops advancing across open terrain should be presenting lots of opportunities for Russian airforce to get busy moving some mud.
Interesting days are ahead, and time will tell what is really happening (cunning Russian plan or outright incompetence/failure of their command), but the level of girlish panic exhibited here by people who should know better is more than a tad annoying.
I hope it's the case , but do you remember Malay Rogan? Chuguev? Zmiev? It was the case ...
And did Russian airforce, army, or anything do a thing about it?
No, they are still "waiting" for the right moment
Look I understand here there's a desire to paint everything In a pretty light, and in the end all want Russia to win
But there's something weird going on, and yes we are powerless to do a thing about it, only the powers that be will make such decisions
But it's good to look at what is occurring, I suspect it has little to do with the military
But do you remember the curious case of a Yukos exec who fell from his window?
There are people in Russia who don't want Russia to win
People like Derispaska, potanin , abramovich, gref
There are nefarious actors that have leverage over Putin - or Niabiullina would not remain , and Medvedev has become quite a patriot with Medinsky and Company
So there is a hand which is sabotaging, there is a voice which is telling no where an order is given
So this is the issue, not Russian army
But as soloviev said, traitors are abound
People worked with others to kill Dugina, to kill Givi, Motorola, Zakharchenko
And most people don't understand these Moskvas , Balakliyas, Sakis, Burning Kuznetsov, are not accidents...
But a careful picture is drawn of a 5th column which is working tediously to sabotage Russia
