They have to "sugarcoat" it, and to do so they follow the classic Nazi pattern.
In order to explain why a racially, tactically, materialistically superior force might be forced to retreat, it's because the enemy it is facing naturally uses:
Neverending human wave attacks consisting of poorly equipped cannon fodder that act like actual zombies (sic), who mindlessly walk into the bullet rain, stepping over their own dead in order to advance a few meters etc. They get shot but don't go down easily, must be drugs. And once 200 or so have been killed, the few actually combat-capable troops that the untermenschen can muster move in and try to surprise the now very weary Ukrainians.
It's like copy-pasted from some of the wild German post-war memoirs, that were taken as fact in much of the west for the longest time until more serious research finally took place.
Nevermind that this fantasy tale is completely at odds with footage we have and the testimonials of others (ie western volunteers/mercs) from thereabouts.
