American retired officer: It is enough to cut the logistics of Ukraine's military supply in the west, and the combat capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will drop to a minimum

The American specialized press published an article in which a retired American senior officer states that the Ukrainian army today is totally dependent on military supplies from Western countries. We are talking about an article in the publication 19Fortyfive, which published the opinion of retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Davis, who at one time led one of the American logistics services.


According to Davis, the vulnerability of the Ukrainian army becomes apparent primarily because the logistics routes have long been known. The main flow of goods to Ukraine goes through Poland, getting into the Lviv and Volyn regions.

Dan Davis:

It is enough to cut off the land route of military supplies from Poland, and Ukraine will have practically no opportunity to conduct combat operations for more than a few months.

The American retired officer says that, by and large, Russia has long completed one of the tasks set - the task of demilitarizing Ukraine as such. According to Davis, Russia has long deprived Ukraine of the ability to produce its own military equipment and ammunition. Today, the situation for Ukraine is developing in such a way that its dependence on foreign supplies is becoming total. The Ukrainian authorities have to constantly remind themselves and ask, ask, ask…

Davis:

The biggest danger for the Ukrainian army now is the possibility of cutting off supply routes at its western borders.

According to Davis, if this happens right up to the logistical collection points for military equipment inside Ukraine itself, then the further combat capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be reduced to a minimum.

          Nothing will happen to those who are in Moscow.
          So they will continue to sit in easy chairs in high offices and theorize about how they love Russia and what else would be so useful for the country to do ...

          There, these "armchairs", judging by the eight months of the war, need to be uprooted in one. And burn out the roots with "Roundup" (dacha residents and those living in their homes, and not in apartments, they know).

            Ironically, Roundup is produced by one of the main investors in the Ukrainian military machine... recourse And you propose to increase its consumption, i.e. increase his (this "investor's") profits... But in fact, it is high time to destroy the border crossings, especially the railway ones. After all, Ukraine has shown what transport routes are considered in the West. We must use it.

            Please do not, like the Cheka and the NKVD. Of the 20 shot at the Butovo firing range near Moscow, 15 have been rehabilitated (the remaining 166 are ordinary criminals).

            PS Rehabilitated - does not mean forgiven, as some believe. Rehabilitated - this means that the Stalinist courts and all sorts of "troikas" ignored the lack of evidence of guilt and unreasonably passed death sentences.

            I’m already silent, how, after Tukhachevsky’s arrest, “sabotage” and “conspiracies” were revealed in the Jet Research Institute he created - they put Langemak, the designer of the legendary Katyusha, against the wall and broke the jaw of S.P. Korolev during interrogation (and still they hung up an article about “sabotage” "- they say, he developed "unnecessary" missiles).

              Eh, minusers-minusators ... How to bring a simple idea to your archaic consciousness that you can’t kill people just because they weren’t born proletarians, forgot to burn a book with a portrait of the tsar, or told a joke at the wrong time.

              And if you go out of your way, don't be surprised that sooner or later you yourself will get into trouble...

              Now we are not talking about designers, and you are a little about that .... There is a contingent of singing, talking, dancing just athletes, politicians, businessmen, etc. Who have forgotten what Russia has done for them. And to behave in such a difficult moment, as they do it openly, they are unlikely to deserve forgiveness even after 100 years .... Tukhachevsky is a closed person and it is unlikely that he was known to the people like Pugacheva, Makarevich, and others . They became artists and media personalities thanks to Russia. And as practice shows, they are recognized only in Russia, they are not loved so much anywhere else and they are not needed anywhere .... and it’s vile of them to slander Russia with authority in Russian society. I only mentioned a part of such an audience.

                Let me note that "Optimus_Prime" writes about one time, and you about today's era, that is, about a completely different one. Approaching different historical eras with the same yardstick is wrong both from a scientific point of view and from a philistine one.
                In the thirties of the 20th century, a socialist state was built, and today we live in the era of the "dictatorship of capitalism" and nepotism. At that time, the ideology of communism was officially proclaimed, today the philosophy of relativism dominates: there are no absolute truths, what is good for me is bad for someone else. And since, the main thing is that I feel good - then this is the truth. There is no ideology, that is, there is no single goal for society, but there are only owners of the natural resources of our country that have arisen from nowhere, it is clear where the morality of relativism, that is, the morality of permissiveness, came from.
                As for Optoimus's comment, for example, he "forgot" to mention the leaders of the SPO OGPU - Kagan and Lyushkov, who dealt with the color of the Russian intelligentsia. Or remember Berman "working" in Belarus.
                As for General of State Security Genrikh Lyushkov, about whom Mr. Mlechin created a whining television movie, he defected to the Japanese. He not only betrayed the entire intelligence network to the Japanese, but also personally tortured our intelligence officers, surprising the Japanese with his cruelty. Mlechin "forgot" to mention this, but did not forget to mention that Lyushkov fled because Stalin himself called him to the Kremlin, but Lyushkov "guessed" that he would not be awarded there.
                History is a system of facts, not conjecture or gossip. And the silence of at least one fact distorts the whole picture as a whole, not to mention the distant past.

                  Have you heard enough of some Klim Zhukov, right? :) There could not be any "left" embezzlement there, this is a fiction to initiate a case. All expenses of the institute were approved by the People's Commissariat of Defense for the year ahead. And Kostikov is your snitch, because of whom Kleimenov and Langemak were shot. He was not the main developer of Katyusha, but took advantage of other people's developments.

                To imprison or shoot a person, you need to prove guilt! And in the cases of these people there was not a single evidence of violation of Soviet laws. However, often there were no cases themselves.

              Yes, there were excesses and not always accidental. Weakening the state and the army with the hands of their own special services is quite an effective approach.
              But here's the catch - Stalin's purges were generally beneficial, which was proved by the course of the Second World War, when, despite the failures of the initial period, there were no social upheavals, the "fifth column" and subversive elements did not manifest themselves. Compare with the Russian Empire in WWI or Republican Spain.
              Well, when those who raised the topic of "illegal repressions" came to power, everything went to a well-known address. The whole country, in fact, turned into a "Gulag Continent", in which "concepts" began to rule, and the damage to science, technology, and industry was such that the case of the "Jet Research Institute" seems like a slight misunderstanding. Moreover, even after the execution of Tukhachevsky and Langemak, the predecessor of TsAGI nevertheless continued to work.
              In the "dashing 90s" there were no repressions, but the final effect is much more significant, we rolled back decades, having lost a lot of R&D, scientific schools and entire industries.
              As it turned out, in general, it turned out worse for the country without the Cheka than with the Cheka.
              Special services are often compared with bodies, and not with the most noble ones. But even if the colon (or rectum) does not look very aesthetically pleasing, the body needs it and few people want to lose it ...

                    And the then elite began to ruin RI. For the collapse of the Empire, Stolypin alone did no less with his reforms than all the Bolsheviks.
                    Or maybe the damned "commies" and Nikolashka were forced to sign an act of renunciation of the crown? There were definitely no Bolsheviks on the tsarist train, only "gentlemen" and "high nobility".

          I think 50% of the current Russian bureaucrats will push the topic of "understand and forgive" for the simple reason that they themselves did exactly the same thing - they betrayed and sold the Slavs to the Anglo-Saxons for the opportunity to steal, cash in on their betrayal and take capital to the Anglo-Saxons, out of reach of the Russian authorities and courts. If the Ukrainian traitors are condemned, they are next in line and understand this very well. Actually, they should be first, not second. How can we cleanse Ukraine if there are such traitors among our teachers and officials? It just won't work.

      And now think about it.
      A grouping is being advanced from Belarus and another from Kherson.
      The grouping from Belarus will face one problem, this is the proximity of Poland. And these are backstabs (art strikes) and DRGs, and in the end Poland can declare that their subjects are oppressed there and it has the right to protect its own by introducing its own grouping of troops outside NATO. A group from the United States, which was so successfully stationed in Romania (sort of), can also connect to it, and there it seems like it’s not NATO, but the batch is not pleasant.
      Do you think why in Belarus our troops are a couple of thousand in the same way? So that any attack on this army coexists with the risk of angering Russia, and being accused of attacking the Russian Federation already.
      I'm not saying that the logistics of such an attack will become more complicated.
      How to turn it around now, this is a direct task. It is possible to cut off the channels and is not a task, but only to create a threat.
      If they did this right away in February, then yes ... there would already be peace, to one degree or another

      It depends on what mass of warheads this missile has.
      And even if there is not enough rocket power, you can load several tons of explosives into the S-70 UAV, and smash over bridges and tunnels. For it can fly along a programmed trajectory with GLONASS positioning, and can even be controlled from the outside in order to accurately hit the required point of the object.

    Yes, it was immediately clear. And it was necessary to plan the operation based on this. Beat along the Polish-Ukrainian border, while attacking from the LDNR. Accordingly, troops for such a strike had to be twice as many. But the operation was mistakenly oriented to the loyalty of the civilian population, to the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would at least raise their paws up, and we would only have to destroy or capture the national battalions. And then, when it turned out that the situation was absolutely not like that, it was too late, and as a result we have what we have.

      The operation was designed to knock out combat-ready units, destroy weapons and military equipment. And it was completely fulfilled. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are fighting exclusively with the weapons that are supplied from the West, and with those units that are being trained in the West.

      For a cutting strike with a deep wedging into the territory of Ukraine, a grouping of at least 300-400 thousand people is needed, as well as a large logistics network, constant supply, and all this through Belarus.
      Not to mention the fact that this "wedge" will need to be expanded and strengthened, so that it would not be cut and surrounded.
      The Russian army simply does not have such opportunities, unless, of course, conscripts are involved and half a million fighters are mobilized.

        I don’t argue, but don’t you think that a strange split has arisen? On the one hand, we are told that this is a war of the united West against Russia, with which I agree, by the way. On the other hand, we stubbornly continue to act contrary to common sense, not using conscripts in this war, and relying on a limited contingent of contract soldiers (now mobilized are being added, in fact, these are the same contract soldiers). My humble opinion is this: if this is a war, then there can be no half measures. Any soldier who has taken the oath should not sit out in the garrisons on our territory, but be trained by those who have already fought and go to the front. If this is not a war, but an NVO, then everyone who speaks of the operation as a war should be recognized as slanderers. And, of course, publicly punish the leadership of the units that did not complete all the tasks of the operation in 2-3 months.
        It cannot be both this and that at the same time. Either this is NVO, and then mobilization was not needed, or this is a war, and then partial mobilization is not sufficient. The fact that it is partial, I was convinced personally, in the military registration and enlistment office. They didn't even volunteer, "no older than 35, and - goodbye."
        The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have every opportunity, if you count the conscripts. There is no will to train and send to the front. Although anyone who has taken the oath must be prepared to go there.

    The biggest danger for the Ukrainian army now is the possibility of cutting off supply routes at its western borders.

    But our oligarchs need these routes to fulfill important contracts for the West! For example, there was information that we continue to supply comrade. Macron supplies uranium for French nuclear power plants, and in return he supplies Caesar howitzers for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, etc. Contracts are sacred to us! And we even boast of strict observance of them even with those who, in response, constantly put a "face" on the "table" in response, as in a deal for the export of grain, for example. Until we finally clearly decide on such a policy, then we will stagnate in place, losing people!

    That's why in every proposal to drag tactical nuclear weapons?
    From this what will be better?

    Of course not. It is better to continue to mobilize and "lay down" in / on your own. Russian women are still giving birth, but Ukrainians must be protected.
    And most importantly - it seems to me that your opinion on this matter would change dramatically if you were in a trench near Kharkov.

    And most importantly - why didn’t you enlighten Ukrov before? So that they don’t bother with the Crimean bridge in vain.

    For a land operation, at least 500 tons of people are needed

    And also horses, bows and arrows, spears for these 500 thousand. After all, the 13th century is in the yard. Everything is decided by numbers.

      You do not take into account that the size of the occupied territory, even if the question is only about the return of all of Novorossia, is huge. She, this territory, must be protected, and not just enter it and beat the backs. Who will protect it from the penetration of sabotage groups, both from the outside and from the inside? Who will clean up this territory from caches and Natsiks remaining on it? How many good people have already died in the already liberated lands at the hands of Bandera?
      Spears and arrows, you say?

    The General Staff still has no idea.

    They've known about it for a long time! BUT ! Export to the West from Ukraine is sacred! And the oligarchs rule the NWO .... am

    Therefore, personally, I do not blame the runners, who only the lazy did not spit after. A person has the right to know for what he gives his life. And this right is denied to the belligerents. They talk about demilitarization, but leave out the ways of transporting huge quantities of weapons. They talk about denazification, but they release the leaders of the biggest Nazi gang.

      War is too serious a matter to be left to the military.
      This is what Frederick the Great said. Interestingly, did the local oligarchy also hold hands with his generals?

        I think in those days everything was simpler, in which case they would cut off the head and say it was so. That oligarchy understood that they were simply given the opportunity to be an oligarch, but they might not have been given it. Remember how our home-grown okhlamons behaved before the accession to the throne of the daughter of Peter the Great, Elizabeth. They gnawed like dogs over a bone.

    For some reason, NATO members in Yugoslavia, for example, had no problem resolving this issue.

    According to Davis, the vulnerability of the Ukrainian army becomes apparent primarily because the logistics routes have long been known. The main flow of goods to Ukraine goes through Poland, getting into the Lviv and Volyn regions.

    Well done "mattress", he suggested how to act to our General Staff, otherwise they did not know. The decision is made (or not accepted) by the political leadership of the country and, accordingly, bears full responsibility for the decisions made.

    And the retired Americans will not help to bomb the Uzhgorod junction, otherwise the generals from the Russian Federation can’t do it with their hands, somewhere something can break loose and harm the powerful clerks, who have divorced a huge bunch with huge carts.

    Now the TsIPSOsh trolls will come running and start screaming that it is useless to destroy transport communications, because the "bright-faced elves" of the Ukroreich have already mastered teleportation, and NATO equipment will teleport from the border right to the battlefield. And therefore, no way to beat on the railways and highways, no way.
