In Ukraine, they comment on Zaluzhny’s interview with a British magazine: These statements were made for a Western audience

The interview given by Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valeriy Zaluzhny to the British newspaper The Economist at the beginning of December and partially published there yesterday caused a great resonance in Ukraine. Still would! After all, some of the revelations of the chief military leader of the country are very much in contrast with the official Kyiv propaganda.

While the Ukrainian authorities promise that next summer “we will be on the southern coast of Crimea,” the commander-in-chief complains that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are sorely lacking resources for such a large-scale military operation. Even worse, he does not even see the possibility of capturing Melitopol, which is only 84 kilometers from the nearest sector of the front.



Having dutifully ridden over the strategic mistakes of the Russian command and speaking in an unflattering manner about Surovikin, Zaluzhny, nevertheless, recognizes the partial mobilization carried out in Russia as successful. Moreover, he complains that this very command of the RF Armed Forces “deliberately” stretched the front so that the Ukrainian army could not concentrate forces for an offensive in separate sectors.

The last straw, or rather, two, were the words of Zaluzhny that he predicts a new offensive of the Russian army on Kyiv. Plus, he believes that in the event of further destruction of the energy system of Ukraine, complete demoralization will occur in society, which will also negatively affect the moral climate in the army.

Such statements by the commander-in-chief, which are clearly inconsistent with the current agenda of Kyiv propaganda, caused a wave of indignation among the “patriots of the Independent”. But there were also those who discerned some deep meaning and strategic cunning in Zalugny's speech. Like, all these revelations were aimed at the Western audience in order to motivate the allies to accelerate and increase military support to Ukraine. In Ukrainian social networks, a “soothing” meme even appeared on this occasion.



And it seems that the “cunning” of the Ukrainian military leader worked. Literally immediately after the publication of the interview with the commander-in-chief, the Politico newspaper, citing sources, reported that the United States was considering opportunities for a large-scale expansion of military assistance to Kyiv in January. It seems like they are even ready to deliver the Patriot air defense systems so desired by Kyiv, and even plus JDAM kits, with which you can convert ordinary aviation bombs into guided ones, and ground-based small-diameter bombs with an increased range of destruction will give.

Will they just make it? After all, a couple more such missile strikes as today's, and at least one prediction of Zaluzhny about the complete destruction of the energy system of Ukraine will become a reality. And there, others, including about additional reserves of 1,2-1,5 million to replenish the RF Armed Forces and an attack on Kyiv, will come true. It turns out that the Ukrainian commander-in-chief was too late to open up to the Western press, before he had to talk about his problems and scare the West with an infinitely strong Russia.

      It is not clear what the Poles had in mind in the spring. They send out agendas to those who did not even serve for the exercises. Already in the spring they want to have 250 thousand, although now their army is 161 thousand. then Poland will then close the supply tap. Yes, and Romania, licking its lips at Moldova and Odessa, can also cover supplies.

        Poland wants EVERYTHING. From we can, to we can .. I think that next year a confederation, a conglomerate of Poland and Ukraine is likely to be created. With the subsequent Polonization of everything that they can acquire. And this is not only Skhodni Kresy

          To know what will happen in the future, you need to know what has already happened in the past.
          1654 - 1667 - the First Patriotic War, the war of the Moscow Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov and the Commonwealth (King Jan II Casimir). The 300th army invaded the lands of Belarus. Lithuania was able to field only 000 soldiers. As a result of this aggression, which was broken only by the partisan movement of the Ruthenians and the intervention of Sweden, the population of the GDL was reduced from 11 million to 000 million people. Losses in the dead, those who fled the country and those taken prisoner amounted to 2,9 million inhabitants.

          360 years later, everything repeats itself. 1654 - 1667 / 2014-2027. Only instead of Belarus, actions take place in Ukraine.

            Do not believe Wiki. This is a lie. About the hordes of Muscovites 300 thousand (Russia could not put up so much purely economically) and about 11 thousand. Poles (GDL and Poland were richer than Moscow). About the loss of civilians are greatly overestimated. This is propaganda against Russia. Learn history, not myths.

              300 is an army of Poles who invaded Belarus.

        a new division of Poland, now final. In reality, they believe that they will be able to squeeze out Western Ukraine and this is their main and not propaganda goal.

    It doesn’t look like a ma’am, but it’s very similar to reality, especially the one that lies, the spitting image of Valerka.

      Zaluzhny has long been saying to leave Bakhmut, and before that he asked Severodonetsk and Lisichansk to save the troops.

        What are you? Just so caring, etc. And then who drove all these mobilized 5 waves to storm under the Russian artillery and machine guns ..? Look, even in the EU they mentioned 100 thousand losses ..
        Oh, outskirts, you didn’t live in peace. We’ll wet it!

          And how long has the commander in chief of the General Staff become commander in chief in the war? Politics and PR for the sake of a beautiful picture are doing their dirty work, laying down thousands of lives. Or do we also have such caring generals that they didn’t touch the energy sector of Ukraine for six months, allowed ammonia and arranged a grain deal, removing the Black Sea Fleet? Maybe they weren't allowed to touch it?

        Well, he saves the Nazi backbone of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and throws unshelled, untrained meat caught on the streets throughout Ukraine + ordinary Armed Forces officers into Artyomovsk.

    this is where the most important information can be found from which you can find out about the current insufficient number of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in order to concentrate forces for a breakthrough in one of the sectors, and this despite the fact that only 150 thousand Russian mobilized + several tens of thousands of volunteers are now in Ukraine.

    Why can't we track down and cover up this arrogant and insolent bastard, along with his henchmen. They mingle freely, meet with Western representatives, give interviews, beg them for weapons and call on them to kill Russians. Why do we stand on ceremony with them, including with Zelensky. Stupidity and not foresight. We all hope to agree with them. These people will not be able to negotiate until they feel the danger to their own skin.

    Vladlen Tatarsky ridiculed Zaluzhny as a fornicator who has 5 mistresses. What he said about the attack on Kyiv, even at the rope dacha, is not discussed. For we performed dances with a tambourine near the outskirts of Kyiv in the spring can be called a strategic failure and flight. What to rely on in this confrontation with a strong enemy and stably limited resources. Only on the phrase of Konstantin Dushenov's transfer. - War - We are Russians .. God is with us.

      That's right. "WE ARE GOD", but Satan is with them .. God is stronger than him and therefore we will win !! The fact that the West is now, with its tolerance, fighting God, is a no-brainer. Well, Ukraine is in alliance with him.
