General of the Bundeswehr: The resources of Russia and the Russian army are practically inexhaustible

37

Inspector of the German Ground Forces, Lieutenant General of the German Army (Bundeswehr) Alfons Mais made a statement about the West's hopes to "weaken Russia by exhausting its resources."

In an interview with one of the German publications, the Bundeswehr general said that this kind of hope of the West is unrealizable, since "Russian resources, like the resources of the Russian army, are practically inexhaustible."



According to him, this is understandable by what is happening in Ukraine today - in the course of hostilities.

Maize:

Many underestimate the Russian Armed Forces. This cannot be done. Russian troops demonstrate good training. They have an impressive technical arsenal, combat-ready personnel.

The German general notes the superiority of the Russian army over the Ukrainian one in artillery, which allows the RF Armed Forces to "move forward kilometer by kilometer."

General Mais:

Russia is working towards exhaustion. And it is already a matter of time how long Ukraine will be able to endure it.

The inspector of the German ground forces notes that the Russian army is gaining invaluable experience in Ukraine, which cannot be discounted.

Recall that in Ukraine they are trying to convince their Western partners that the resources of the Russian army and Russia as a whole are about to be depleted. Allegedly, in the near future there will be a “radical change”, and allegedly the Ukrainian army will “restore the borders of Ukraine of the 1991 model”. However, adequate politicians and military leaders in the West understand that this is nothing more than propaganda of the Kyiv regime, for which it is extremely important to receive Western funding.

      Another Captain Obvious. Are they not taught history in schools and universities? Or are they teaching something wrong? Well, remember you about Napoleon and Hitler - and that's it, enough to understand the elementary truth - you shouldn't climb into Russia. So no, the new prophet received his sight, Mlyn. smile

          But, censorship, numbers.
          NATO defense budget is $1,010 trillion, Russia $48 billion (for 2020)
          NATO has a total of 3657000 people in the army, in Russia 1013000, how much goes to one person, anyone will count. How approximately and will evaluate what these funds can be equipped with.
          And, censorship, merged ... Moreover, they expose themselves as poor, we are immeasurably rich.
          Tolerance - it is useful in homeopathic doses. Otherwise, people are turned into an electorate.

          In war, of course, technology is important. Even critical. But in the first place is still the spirit. The same terrorists in Chechnya, at first it was useless to even compare their budget with Russia, it was then that the whole West began to equip them. But after all, the damage was done to Russia enormously. They even won the first war. Because they were ready to die, to starve.

            No, not for this, but because their curators bought our top .. As soon as they changed their minds at the top, everything ended as it should be .. Not spirit, not "heroism" could not do anything ..

            Yes, already in the First World War, equipment and technology took the first place, and WWII is finally a "war of engines." And the farther, the more pieces were attached to the motors. Bombs, walkie-talkies, suppression systems, missiles... Sometimes it seems to me that a person in the modern army is needed only to storm buildings and to have someone to sue, if something happens.
            Look, as they do not show modern technology, they everywhere talk about air defense, for example: "Tracking of targets is carried out automatically, the calculation is made automatically, the operator only has to decide to lead the target and give the command to launch." About Armata: "After reflecting the shot, the turret is automatically rotated towards the shooter, the crew only needs to open fire." A similar thing can be found about airplanes, they say the equipment itself discovered everything, hovered, and the pilot must give her permission to open fire. And every time I hear and read this, I wonder. And why not give the decision to open fire to the computer? One of the weakest links will be taken out of the chain immediately.

              There is no NATO defense budget. There are military budgets of the countries included in the bloc. The NATO budget itself is a relatively small amount needed to maintain the apparatus of this organization and hold official events.

        Do you remember the Crimean from the Russian-Japanese? Or was history not taught at your school and university? About the First World War, about shell hunger, about the collapse of the front, about how they lost Poland, western Ukraine and part of the Baltic states? Did they only teach propaganda? ABC)))
        Today's military resources of Russia are still touched by the USSR. Thanks to the grandfathers for creating strategic stocks of ammunition and equipment! Something I don’t see at the front either Armat, or Boomerangs with Kurgans, or even Tornado-S! Something is not heard about the Su-57 either. Maybe there are too many drones? And then we are waiting for the Iranians! 21st century anecdote: discussing the turning point in the supply war Iranian weapons in Russia! Sailed!

            This is all fine, of course, but the question is: who will wake up? Government? Power? How can the board of directors, top management "wake up" the shareholders, the holders of the controlling stake? Their main goal is to make a profit. And they will get it! And to work ... the fighters at the front will work ...

                    How can you take it out of context if there is no context itself? You wrote about ideology. And where about the socio-economic model? Where about what needs to be changed? You only talk about ideology, nothing more.

      Many underestimate the Russian Armed Forces.
      The Ukrainian side, from the singing of "friends of Ukraine," even at the beginning of the operation, was sure that now, in a week, rockets, shells, cartridges would run out, Russian soldiers would lose morale, and that's when ... But it turned out exactly the opposite - rockets do not end , but the Armed Forces of Ukraine so far rely solely on foreign supplies, which are not endless. The German general correctly noted that
      the Russian army gains invaluable experience in Ukraine
      With the advent of new types of Western weapons in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the allied forces quickly find weaknesses, make changes in the tactics of military operations, and indeed gain invaluable combat experience.

      propaganda of the Kyiv regime, for which it is extremely important to receive Western funding.
      The issue of the return of loans to the Ruin is an archi-important issue for the IMF, the EU and the USA. Yes, it will be decided at the conclusion of a general agreement at the end of the SVO, but what decision will be is another question. It is quite possible to "understand and forgive" the alternative, so as not to sit on the dock for financing a crime against humanity."
      Maybe it's time to stop funding the Nazi regime? It's not 1945 now. (US finances put pressure on everyone), now everything is more serious (BRICS is on the nose feel ). After all, you can lose not 60 lard +%%, but much more. request

      You can stop the supply of weapons to Ukraine if you create a threat to suppliers through refugees, mercenaries, etc., who today are controlled by the American club of hunger, but should be controlled by Putin's intercepted food club. The disarmed then will not give up the last.
