Major developments in the Russo-Ukraine war

113 posts in this topic

A few weeks later there have been some major developments.

So far the war is mostly a stalemate with a lot of back and forth in terms of the territory occupied. The same cannot be said for the vehicles and soldiers.

The Russian army is sending less advanced equipment to the front line, including cars without armor. Conscripts are surrendering for two common reasons. One, they are abandoned by their commanders. Two, friendly fire is a serious issue in the Russian army. The problem is that Russian artillery fires in the general direction of the enemy with less precision. The soldiers close to the front line often  get hit because of this. The gap in technology is becoming noticeable and problematic when the Ukrainian army receives all kinds of up to date equipment from NATO.

The daily casualties have been increasing as untrained men are sent to the front line. Apparently, Russia is getting low on tanks and missiles, making it increasingly dependent on North Korea. Belarus does not seem to be joining the war, which is good news for Ukraine.

One thing I can't tell is if the numbers are inflated. Is Russia really getting low on tanks? How many are left? Counting the losses for both sides remains complicated. I don't know if I trust all of these numbers, especially since it is a common point for propaganda to make the soldiers feel high morale like they are winning.

Russia's ""elite special forces"" just got completely wiped out, again.  Luckily they've still got a few 100k untrained kids and homeless drunks to throw at this.

It really is looking pretty bad for Russian soldiers on the ground as the casualties continue to rapidly increase.

Ukraine said that they should be ready to take back Kherson within a few more weeks, hence they refused the ceasefire. So far Kherson is still at a standstill for the moment. Ukraine is not advancing, but Russia moved a lot of civilians out of there not too long ago.

Kherson is liberated.

The update I have been anticipating. However, the president of Ukraine is cautious of the media's celebration. Although, Ukraine has taken back a significant chunk of territory, about 20,000 Russian soldiers are estimated to be ready for redeployment on another front.

The fighting near Bakmut city and the Kharkiv region have been very intense and the future reinforcements may make the war more difficult in these regions. In exchange Ukraine has put itself in a position to strike various military targets near the Crimean peninsula.

The president is wise to see this as not an outright celebration, but as a change in the Russian strategy. The war is far from over.

Weird how Russia gave up Cherson without a fight.

Actually, this is not surprising.

The Russian soldiers had supply issues due to being on the other side of a river where the bridges were destroyed by Ukrainian missile strikes.

Furthermore, the Russian lines were collapsing rapidly in other regions and reinforcements are needed to stabilize the army.

@Scholar good video.

I was wondering about the Russian strategy. They are using a lot of ammunition on civilian targets even though the equipment Russia sends with its troops is getting more obsolete. It seems like a waste of limited ammunition to kill civilians, but Putin is trying to win the war through brute force and intimidation.

A significant escalation has occurred.

Russia launched 90 missiles at power infrastructure across Ukraine. Ukraine has improved its air defenses substantially and managed to shoot down 73 of the missiles.

In the process there was a spillover. Poland was not by a missile and they are considering going to war with Russia for attacking NATO territory. Sweden and Croatia have increased the amount of aid sent to Ukraine in response to these attacks. Putin did not accomplish much with these attacks because engineers have been working tirelessly to restore power to Ukraine. These strikes on civilian targets continue to embolden the Ukrainian people.

There have also been various reports of amphibious assaults on the south western region of Ukraine. Ukrainian forces are attempting to to establish a foothold South of Kherson. This would bring the Ukrainian army close to the Crimean peninsula.

@Hello from Russia , Moscow has a higher concentration of Stage Orange and Green people than other Russian cities. And the rural population is mainly Stage Purple, Red and Blue. The Purple component is actually quite strong there. The people who rule Russia are also largely Stage Purple and Red, so they have common values with the “uneducated masses” and get their full support. And the Kremlin propaganda messages are based largely on the Purple and Red values reinforcing this support.

Another barrage of Russian missiles hit Ukrainian power infrastructure. This time the air defenses were overwhelmed and more damage was caused than before. More civilians died and Europe has voted to label Russia's operation state sponsored terrorism. There will be more information on the missile attacks in the coming days.

Heavy fighting is still happening by Bahkmut, a strategically important city that Russia has been trying to take. Ukraine is continuing most of its counter offensive operations to the south of Kherson through himar and artillery strikes. Sometimes parts of crimea are being hit. Ukraine intends to take back all of this territory.
