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

As far as

russia

's

military

power

is concerned, this has been a very sobering experience for the

russia

n army,

what

the

russia

ns have achieved so far is to conquer about two thirds of the donbass region, which they say is the most important thing for them , and set this. land bridge between donbass and crimea which was the territory that they illegally conquered and annexed in 2014 so they have taken around 20 of the ukrainian territory but remember that this war started with putin's intention to occupy all of

ukraine

to kick out the government to install his own government and act effectively to absorb

Ukraine

into a great

Russia

that has utterly failed.

They have advanced two thirds of the occupation of Donbass, but in other places it is not going very well and it seems that the

Russia

ns are going to be caught. winter with all his

military

goals only partly achieved president putin has no

military

experience he was a regional kgb officer in dresden just one small town which was his government function until he effectively became prime minister like all great dictators, he thinks he's some kind of

military

genius and in fact i mean the

military

decisions he's made or we know he's made broadly have proven to be disastrous again like all dictators people are afraid to tell him the truth and he was not told the truth we believe his

military

chiefs gerasimov um by his intelligence chiefs before the war started and he seems to have had a very misleading understanding of

what

the situation in

ukraine

really was and how he has also tried to galvanize to their army, it seems that they have made the problem worse, although they have modern naval and air forces, their army is still relatively s in reform and has now gone into battle for It is the first time since 1945 that it has been shown how poor the running of big operations really is and that has been an eye opener not only to those of us in the west watching these things but also for individuals. mainly to the

russia

n high command who thought they were much better than they turned out to be, the

russia

ns called up troops from every other theater they have been involved in to send to the

ukraine

and thus the

russia

n forces opposing the baltic states estonia latvia lithuania they are thinner now than they have been for many years the

russia

n borders are more open now than they have been for a long time because they have had to concentrate those competent and professional troops that they have in

ukraine

what

the

russia

ns are up against

russia

ns is to a situation where if they get stuck in

ukraine

for the next few years their army is too small to do the other jobs they are a major continental

power

like

russia

should have no less than they dont have many troops guarding the border with china and believe me that is a border that they are really worried about if they are worried about a homeland invasion they should look at the number of chinese troops.

P.S. across the river usuri

ukraine

is fighting for its life so in principle

ukraine

can hold out for a long time it is a big country the biggest country in europe besides

russia

population 44 million people they say they can put a million people in arms and that's plausible they certainly think they can put 700,000 people around three quarters of a million under arms by this time next year that means they have a lot of ability to go on and hold on but they can only hang on and continue to fight if the West continues to back them with arms, support and money and that is the big problem if the west does not lose its nerve and if the west is prepared to endure real pain from here on out to support

ukraine

then

ukraine

can go on at least as long as

russia

can and maybe more the current war i think it can end in some kind of ceasefire maybe next year maybe next year and so on anything but launching this venture we are preventing the

russia

ns from getting anything from this venture anything less than that will be a win for putin and for sure if they get even a little bit of territory from

ukraine

this time they will surely be back for more very soon there is a very good chance of for this to become an open war that will last 50 60 70 years, which means that it will not be a war all that time, it will be a fight in which

Russia

refuses to recognize the right of

Ukraine

to be an independent state and

ukraine

you have to live with the reality that on your border there is a state a country ten times the size that actually wants to conquer you and

what

I suspect will happen is that this fight will go through a series of intermittent conflicts so there will be a conflict there will be a halt the fire the ceasefire will hold for a few years and then it will break the conflict will break out again this is a fight that will continue in europe again and again from time to time p or two or three more generations and we have to prevail we have to protect ourselves protect our freedoms and learn to prevail in this conflict so that

russia

, whoever the leaders are, in 20 30 40 years will get the message that western europe will fight back by itself democratic principles that
