"We are washing ourselves in blood. No one is bringing reserves. What they tell us is the deepest deception,"
At least three people have been killed in Russian attacks on southern Ukraine, including two who died after a trolleybus company came under fire in the city of Kherson, regional officials said.www.rte.ie
absolutely - he never misses an opportunity.
I get the impression that Ukraine are gently leaning on the Russian front now, seeing what happens.
If they see anything looking a bit creaky they have piles of well trained, well armed guys, that can get dispatched.
They seemed to be saying that Russia would be more looking for a stalemate type scenario, whereas Ukraine would be needing to avoid that scenario. The winter is more stalematey seeming, I think they are taking out bridges and supply / retreat in the last couple of days, so at some point in the next short while there might be some aggressive stuff kicking off?
If they don't kick Russia out of large chunks of the place by the winter, I was getting the impression that this is more winning for Russia than Ukraine.
usual armchair general bollocks, but the obvious tactic seems to be taking (if available) intel about supply lines and hitting them constantly.yep - 'winning' for the Russians in this context means simply hanging on to what they have, and not falling apart like last year. The Ukrainians need to have at least a similar level of success as last year to keep the tap open in terms of western support.
From what I've been reading the 'probing' approach is a lot of what's happening at the moment.
Even my war-lovin' bros at the institute for study of war have been saying the russian defensive strategy so far has been sound, at those lads are all about their doctrinal defenses n' stuffz

I guess I don't know how tooled up they are with those missiles that can get flown to exact locations, but the Russians are in occupied land, and therefore have to be running supplies to keep their troops going, no?
Like intuitively you'd think that stalemate type scenarios where the Russians just sit and hold would favour Ukraine, because there's an obvious avenue to grind away at them: hitting their supply lines, and then leaning on their front lines. But seemingly not.
