"Something went wrong" again with the russian plans for a quick offensive and a quick victory with parades over Ukraine. It's like the word "palyanytsya" for a russian - to practice or not to practice - it is unable to be pronounced.
(The word "palyanytsya" is used as a code word in the Ukrainian language to identify people for whom Ukrainian is not a native language.)
The Armed Forces of Ukraine, despite the constant insidious missile strikes of the enemy, stopped the Russian offensive. NLAW, Javeline, Stugna and Korsar MANPADs annihilate enemy columns of armored vehicles.
Russians lost more planes and helicopters than in the wars of russia/ USSR in Afghanistan/Syria combined. Logistical support of troops is broken.
There is chaos and discontent among russian troops. Thousands of russian occupiers were killed or wounded. At least five russian generals are dead and more will be killed.
These are the preliminary summary results for the first month of the war, the achievements of which, however, were given to the Ukrainians at great expense. Soldiers, men, women and even children died at the hands of an insidious and ruthless enemy. Next, Ukrainians should rely primarily on their own strength, resilience, and the help of the West, which we believe will not begin to give up under fear of the use of chemical or nuclear weapons by the enemy.
There is a hope that the West will understand that Ukraine is now, with all its courage, saving Europe from the spread of the Russian invasion. And helping Ukraine is helping all human civilization.
And what's in the Russian bunkers? According to trusted sources of the Defense Express, the russian leadership is confused. Personnel purge is being prepared. Probably, according to the usual scenario, people will be replaced and everything will be "sehr gut". (From the editors: we prophesy - definitely not.)
The first scapegoat will be the Minister of Defense S. Shoigu, who disappeared from russian TV channels and news agencies.
It is rumored that Shoigu is currently in Rostov-on-Don region, russia, where he is being interrogated over the deaths of commanders of armies, regiments and brigades in the southern part of the front. It is unknown what reasons will be determined there, but of course their incompetence and wooden-headedness will not be mentioned.
However, a replacement for Defense Minister S. Shoigu has already been found. The candidate to replace him is the current Deputy Minister of Defense of the russian federation Yunus-Bek Yevkurov. He was a paratrooper, led the seizure of Pristina airport ( Kosovo) , and settled the conflict in Ingushetia.
His position on the war against Ukraine is unknown, there have been no public statements. But there is no difference, in the russian leadership all are already poisoned by the virus of neo-nazism. However, there is an interesting nuance: Yunus-Bek Yevkurov hates current head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov.
In addition to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Director of the Federal Security Service Alexander Bortnikov will also be replaced by First Deputy.
Interestingly, the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine recently reported that a certain part of the russian political elite considers Bortnikov as Putin's successor.
"It is noteworthy that Bortnikov has recently fallen out of favor with the russian dictator. The official reason is the fatal miscalculations of the FSS Director in the war against Ukraine. Bortnikov and his department were responsible for analyzing the mood of Ukrainian people and the ability of the Ukrainian army," the statement said.
According to the Defense Intelligence of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine , FSS Director Alexander Bortnikov and some other influential members of the Russian elite considered various options for removing Putin from power - poisoning, sudden illness and other scenarios.
However, we will see how it will be in reality. We are satisfied with any of these three scenarios. The main thing is to make it happen faster.
