American general announced the condition of the "intermediate victory" of the Russian Federation in Ukraine

The offensive actions of the Russian military in the Donbass pursue certain tactical and strategic goals. This direction can become decisive on the scale of the entire special military operation.


This opinion was expressed by the former Supreme Commander of the Joint Forces of NATO in Europe, Wesley Clark, in an interview on CNN.

A retired American general announced the main condition for Russia's "interim victory" in Ukraine. In his opinion, Russian troops can drive units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine "into a fire trap" in the Artemovsk region. And if the Ukrainian military suffers significant losses, Putin, Clark believes, will be able to force Kyiv to agree to a temporary ceasefire or even a truce.

If the Russian Armed Forces can push back the positions of the Ukrainian army until units from Kherson arrive at this site, Putin will win

- Expresses a retired military from the United States his opinion.



In addition, the ability of the Russian military to continue missile strikes on energy infrastructure and military targets for an extended period may become an important trump card for Moscow, the general believes. At the very least, this may continue for at least a few more weeks. Clark argues that at the moment Russia has everything it needs to inflict significant damage on Ukraine.

    Yankee is stupid! Why do we need this "truce"? No Armed Forces of Ukraine no longer exist, these are already NATO troops with local mercenaries, so a war with NATO in a limited theater of operations means, first of all, cutting off the supply of NATO troops (most effectively along the Polish border) and taking prisoners who surrender without shells and cartridges. It is they who need a "truce" in order to restore and establish logistics, to prepare a new "meat" from the natives ... but we don't need this at all! Here, now, speed is already beginning to play an important role for us, it is no longer possible to give time for the restoration of NATO forces in the theater!

      Well, just not a day without the opinion of one or another general or politician from the NATO countries, the EU, and even the head of the church, who from time immemorial has blessed her flock for predatory and cannibalistic campaigns in the east of Eurasia, Africa and America.

      The sick people began to fuss, worry about the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, grumble with saliva from the forward movement of our units, demand to throw “wood” into the fire, chip in for transformers for Ukraine, ensure a decent life for Ukrainian emigrants and not offend the Nazis, rapists and murderers who were captured by the Russian army .

      It would be better if they told how they destroyed the Vietnamese and poisoned them with chemicals, bombed the Serbs with radioactive-tipped bombs, demolished cities in Iraq, staged a fratricidal war in Libya, invaded and still sit, stealing oil, in Syria, for twenty years they put "order" in Afghanistan.

      They know it and count on it. Why ask you? 19FortyFive has one article Could Russians Take To The Streets And Fight Back Like In China that explains it all. Just a translation of the last paragraph.
      It's Russia's turn to turn on dear leader
      Now the ungrateful Chinese are not only protesting against the party's COVID-19 policy, but also demanding freedom. The Chinese looked prosperous, passive and peaceful.

      If even such people can be unhappy enough to risk their lives to challenge Xi's harsh rule, then why not the Russians?

      God knows, their sons and husbands are dying by the thousands in Ukraine. The Russian economy is shrinking, and all Putin and his henchmen can offer is send more Russians to the front as cannon fodder.

      China's uprising can be crushed or bring about change. But the movement, along with the Belarusian and Iranian uprisings, shows that the authoritarian regimes of the world are in serious trouble.

      In all three cases, the demonstrations were provoked by random events that angered the people. It will be Russia's turn to riot when the slow defeat of the Russian army in Ukraine sparks the fire.

      That is, they will end up sacrificing everything to supply Ukraine with weapons, including new ones. Because they only want to win. That is our defeat. This article was written by Dr. Alexander Motyl, their professor of political science at Rutgers-Newark. Specialist on Ukraine, Russia, the USSR, as well as on nationalism, revolutions, empires and theory.

          Lvov will not. Because no one is anything. But from this article I sucked out that Donetsk will be shot even if we move the border away from the city. And you know why. Since the Americans will provide missiles for hamers already up to 200 km. Not a simple journalist writes, but one who participates in color revolutions. Including who planned the Maidan.

    What is needed from Kyiv is not a "complete ceasefire", but a complete surrender, as you know, it is not the "pushing" of the enemy deep into its territory that leads to capitulations, but normal such "boilers" and "kettles". Therefore, I consider the statements of American experts unfounded, this is my personal opinion.

      Kukuevsky has not exhausted the resource of "cannon fodder", they can replenish the defeated units ... though with a strong decrease in combat effectiveness, weak weapons and the lack of a full-fledged reinforcement with heavy weapons, but the mass of infantry is also a serious argument, especially when it has not lost the ability, determination to lead active fighting!!!
      This is what I wrote ... large "cauldrons" are forced to have a large mass of field troops, which are necessary to contain the active enemy in the "cauldrons" themselves, and no less troops to contain external pressure !!!
      Partial mobilization, it is partial...
      The question is ... do we have enough field troops to carry out military operations according to the classical scheme ???
      I’ll clarify right away ... the topic is not mine, so I rode on top, read a lot of books and so on. Therefore I ASK, instead of I affirm.

        I believe that four AK (army corps) of the RF Armed Forces are able to solve this problem with the support of two airborne brigades and two brigades of the MP (they are available in the theater). As for the army corps, three of them are located outside the theater of operations (on the borders of the Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation and Ukraine) and one directly performs tasks (Zaporozhye direction). This is not counting the two AKs (LPR and DPR), which perform tasks in the areas entrusted to them. As for the assault units in various directions, they are completed from the composition of the forces and means of PMCs, the operating units of the Central Military District, the Northern Western Territory and the South Ossetia. Infrastructure and logistics in the Russian army is well-established (there are minor flaws), unlike the Ukrainian army. Therefore, with the additional involvement of AK, normal such "boilers" are quite possible

        In my opinion, our main problem today is the lack of secure communication. Both the fighters and the equipment. There are no repeaters.
        This problem is already being solved, but it takes time.
        As soon as it is resolved, at least halfway, then we will be able to attack.

    Russian troops can drive units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine "into a fire trap" in the Artemovsk region... Russia has everything necessary to inflict significant damage on Ukraine.
    And if you listen to Austin and Wallace, it’s just right for Russia to raise its hands, and ask the Anglo-Saxons: “What do you want?” There is no doubt that the Arctic fox will eventually come to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      That is why talks are often spoken about from the Kremlin. And from Kyiv, only "negotiations will begin after the withdrawal of troops." You can count for yourself who and how many times spoke about "negotiations without preconditions" from the Russian side.

          Zelensky is not negotiating for the reason that he is in a better position than he was 9 months ago. And every month the position of Ukraine is improving (trained units are arriving, new batches of weapons are arriving, financial assistance is growing), and Russia is getting worse ..., oh, of course, officially, according to the Ministry of Education. improving .... just the opposite.

    Another "stupid retiree". Did this General even see the front line? The crescent-shaped bend itself gives Ukraine advantages in the operational transfer of its units anywhere and quickly (the bridges are standing). Here, as in 1918, the front will collapse only when the entire control system staggers , and before that the story will be like this: Ypres, Verdun, Marne 2.0, for years hi

      They are specifically trying to disperse the panic in our country and once again present it as a great victory of the 404th. And by the way, now having calmed down emotions after our retreat from Kherson. It's actually a very well done performance. Certainly will be included in the textbooks on military science. This is over 30 thousand personnel, the personnel army is the elite. This is over 3 thousand pieces of equipment. It's not like in the Kharkiv region. Hohlov has very few trophies and those are rather dubious. According to their videos.

        This truly digression is carried out brilliantly.
        I would like the offensive to be just as brilliant and with a minimum of losses.

        What can I say... The information war is in full swing, the enemy spares no effort and means.
        It is unlikely to say that they completely own this battlefield, but it is necessary to increase our efforts in this direction as well.
        If you look back in history, it becomes clear that the endless streams of lies have not yet allowed anyone to win, for no reason and unconditionally.

    There is such a section - how much will arrive, so much will decrease. Though from under Kherson, even from under Londana.
    So, let them come, preferably more Poles and Englishmen - the black soil will be fatter, the crops will be better.
    And not Putin will win, but Russia, there is no need to distort concepts - you didn’t run into Putin, you decided not to make Russian people.

    Troops from near Kherson may arrive to strengthen the front line, but what will happen if, immediately after arrival, re-offensive measures begin in the south? That's right, they will have to be urgently returned back. And this is time, resources and additional losses. Yes, and battered Ukrainian troops near Kherson thoroughly even before the withdrawal of ours. So this transfer will not play a special role for the Ukrainians.

Kyiv will turn into ashes, and the country's infrastructure will be completely destroyed, and with it the people. Russia will win and gradually so that Kyiv falls to its knees, and Zelensky kneels and kisses the hand of General Surovik with a request for surrender .. This is how I imagine victory.

    We cannot lose this war from the word "ALL"! The existence of the country is at stake! And we must take the entire "outskirts" (maybe only without the western regions). During the truce, the West will bring even more equipment and its "vacationers" and other rabble there! Then we definitely won't fight back.
