Russia's military power: What the Ukraine war has taught us

As for

Russia

's

military

might, this was a very sobering experience for the

Russia

n

military

.

What

the

Russia

ns have achieved so far is capturing about two-thirds of the Donbass region, which they believe is the most important thing for them, and establishing a land bridge between the Donbass and Crimea, which was the area they illegalized in 2014 conquered and annexed so they took about 20 of ukrainian territory but remember that this war started with putin's intention to occupy all of

ukraine

to throw out the government install his own government and effectively cause

ukraine

in a Greater

Russia

is being taken in that has failed utterly, they are two-thirds of the way through the occupation of the Donbass, but things are not going too well elsewhere and the

Russia

ns look set to be overtaken by Winter, with all its

military

goals only partially achieved president putin has no

military

background he was a regional kgb officer in dresden just a small town that held his government role le was, until he actually became prime minister, like all great dictators, he thinks he's some kind of

military

genius, and indeed I mean

what

military

decisions he made, or as we know he made, generally speaking, disastrous again, like all dictators people are afraid to tell him the truth and he hasn't been told the truth, we believe, by his

military

chiefs gerasimov around by his intelligence chiefs before the war started and he seems to have had a very delusional understanding of that have

what

that is The situation in

Ukraine

really was like that and as he tried to mobilize his

military

it looks like they made the problem worse even though they have modern naval and air forces whose army is still relatively is unreformed and has now gone into combat For the first time since 1945 it has proved how poor it really is to carry out large operations and that was an eyesore opening not only for those of us in the West who are looking at these things, but especially first of all to the

Russia

n high command who thought they were a lot better than they turned out, the

Russia

ns have troops from all the other theaters of war where they were involved, summoned to send them to

ukraine

and so facing

russia

n forces the baltic states estonia latvia lithuania are now narrower than they have been in many many years. the

russia

n borders are now more open than they have been in a long time because they had to focus their competent and professional troops on

ukraine

the

russia

ns are facing a situation where if they get bogged down in

ukraine

in the next few years their army will be much too is small to carry out the various other tasks that a major continental

power

like

russia

must have, not least they don't have many troops looking after the border with china and believe me that's a border they do really worried.

If you are worried about invasion of the homeland, you should look at the number of chinese troops ps the other side of the usuri river

ukraine

is fighting for your life so in principle

ukraine

can last a very long time it is a big country the biggest country of europe apart from

russia

itself population of 44 million people they say they can put a million people under arms and that is plausible they certainly think they can put about 700 000 people under arms by this time next year which means that they have a lot of capacity to go on and sustain themselves, but they can only feed themselves and keep fighting if the west keeps supporting them with guns and support and money and that's the big if if the west doesn't lose its nerve and is willing to take real pain from now on to support him

ukraine

, then

ukraine

can go on for at least that long like

russia

and maybe longer.

The current war in my opinion could end in some kind of truce, maybe next year, maybe the year after, so throwing anything but this adventu preventing the

Russia

ns from gaining anything from this adventure will be a victory for Putin , and if they gain even a little bit of territory from

Ukraine

this time, they will surely be back there soon to gain more. There is every chance that this will be a war without end, that will last 50 60 70 years, That means it will not be a war all the time, but a struggle in which

Russia

refuses to recognize

Ukraine

's right to be an independent state and

Ukraine

has to live with the reality that there is one state on its borders is a country ten times bigger that they actually want to conquer and i suspect this fight will happen a series of on off uh conflicts so there will be a conflict there will be a truce nd give the truce will last a few years then the conflict erupts again this is a struggle that will go on in europe on and off for two or three more generations and we have to assert ourselves, we have to protect ourselves, protect our freedoms and learn to persist in this conflict, so that

Russia

, whoever is going to be the leader in 20, 30, 40 years, gets the message that Western Europe will stand up for itself, democratic principles like you
