Former US Senator: Despite Western military assistance, Ukraine lost in the conflict with Russia

Despite the help of the West, led by the United States, Ukraine is losing in the conflict with Russia, suffering catastrophic losses in personnel. This is shown by recent events on the front lines, said former Virginia Senator Richard Black.


The Ukrainian army suffers colossal losses, and it has nothing to make up for them. As an example, Black, who by the way is a retired US Army colonel, cited the situation near Bakhmut (Artemovsk), where the Russian army is literally grinding the Ukrainian one. Information about the heavy losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is already known in Western countries, no matter how hard they try to hide it in Kyiv. Against this background, Russia is only building up its forces, introducing new units from among those mobilized into the conflict zone.

The ongoing battle for Bakhmut in Ukraine has gradually become a disaster for the Ukrainian army as Russia successfully proceeded to quadruple its armed forces by early next year.

- said the former senator.

According to Black, Bakhmut is a kind of litmus test showing the general condition of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Russian army. It turns out that the command of the Ukrainian grouping throws thousands of soldiers into the "cauldron of death" near Bakhmut, but cannot change the situation. The Pentagon also does not believe in the final victory of Ukraine in this conflict, they just talk about it cautiously for the time being. According to the same chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mark Milley, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are unlikely to move further and win any more significant victories.

Thousands of Ukrainian troops are thrown into the cauldron of death in Bakhmut, and it seems that they have no solution. Russia wins in Bakhmut, Ukraine loses in Bakhmut, and this is evidence that this is becoming a major strategic battle of the war

- the retired colonel noted, adding that the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are "shocking", and there is nothing to make up for them.

Black also recalled the words of the head of the EC, Ursula von der Leyen, about the hundred thousandth loss of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Although this statement was cut out at the request of Washington, and in Kyiv it was called "untrue", the real losses of the Ukrainian army could be even greater.

    No supply of weapons, it is impossible to resist helping a weak army against the strongest. Yes, what to talk about, indeed, little Russians, as if they fell from the moon. Don't they know that the global West also supported the army of the Kabul regime and the Iraqi puppet? He also supplied weapons, also trained the military and sent instructors, so what? Did they really believe that they could resist Russia? And imagine what it is HPPP to disarm NATO? nullify their former Soviet weapons, work out the fight against their air defense systems, empty their arsenals, etc.? Have you forgotten how it all started? who was given the ultimatum? Not the former Ukraine, after all ....

    Russia wins in Bakhmut, Ukraine loses in Bakhmut
    The senator says that Ukraine has already lost, the Pentagon does not believe in a Ukrainian victory, even Mili, who recently spoke about a Ukrainian victory, suddenly began to doubt it. But at the same time, weapons are streaming and they promise more modern ones. The complete defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will also mean the defeat of the United States and its allies, but they do not want this so much.

      This means that troops under the guise of volunteers will follow.

        "Mercenaries" are still fighting, and troops in large numbers are unlikely to come in - they cannot fight without aviation.

      The Americans have supplied and will supply weapons to Ukraine until the end of the NWO.
      The same thing happened in Syria and Afghanistan, they fought the infidels at the same time arming them with their weapons.
      Nothing personal, just business.

      This is inevitable and for them it will be a geopolitical catastrophe, after which this whole shobla will turn into a club of outcasts.

    Hmm.

    Sounds a little too crazy. This Richard Black is indeed a peculiar character, a fighter against American imperialism, but hardly that stupid.

    At the request of "Richard Black Bakhmut" there is a huge sheet of copy-paste, starting with RIA and TASS. At the request of Richard Black Bakhmut, nothing has been found in the last XNUMX hours - only translations from Russian sources. It looks like another stuffing of margosha - the pacifist allegedly repeats the whole Solovyovshchina too caricaturely.

    But in any case, the attention of the FBI to this passenger will not hurt.

      I don’t know who and how stupid, but one indisputable fact is reliably known, with which it is impossible to disagree. Most Western politicians and high-ranking generals, becoming "former", suddenly sharply become smarter and begin to say adequate things.

        Of course not. Imagine the headline "a former State Duma deputy from the Omsk region said." There, and from the current ones, you don’t know where to go.

        This I saw. Therefore, he mentioned that the grandfather is peculiar.

        But TASS/RIA are referring to some American-German sabbath that took place on the 17th. All news in Russian is fresh, less than a day.

        Although you may be right, the text seems to be just that. Well, Booth's rack has recently been vacated.

    Well, why "nothing to make up for"? The war is to the last Ukrainian.
    Yes, and the skakuasov-Bandera-Galicians were still almost not touched.
    Nenka still has plenty of meat.
    And I really look forward to the Gestapo being driven to the front out of hopelessness - that is, sadists, murderers and other creatures from the SBU. I wish all of them to receive their painful, irremovable Russian fragment.

    Ukraine does not exist. This terrorist formation is a weapon of Germany, the EU, Britain and the USA. So who lost "in the conflict with the Russian Federation"?

      Yes, yes ... and so for more than 500 years. There is no Ukraine, the whole world is against us, China and the Arabs to help us...but for the money, the Germans are everywhere, the Englishwoman is shitting. Not tired yet to fight the mill.

    That is why, as soon as Americans become "former" they have an epiphany. Is it a clinic or money?

    For some reason I remembered:

    -Vikenty Dmitrievich, Deputy of the Duma, a private and decent person!
    -Alisa, VIP prostitute, 35 years old. Virgin.

    How to fight with Russia, so the whole West, but how to lose, so only Ukraine.
    And rightly so, they themselves probanderili their country.

    Despite military assistance from the West, Ukraine lost in the conflict with Russia

    Judging by the title, is the act of complete and unconditional surrender already on the president's desk? Somehow it seemed to me all the time that I lost, then when one of the parties won, i.e. the tricolor is already on the town hall of Lviv and the administration of Chop. In the meantime, this is still oh so far away, and such a goal has not been set, we are good, "we are not like them," a lot of sweat and blood will be shed from the soldiers in this way. For 2-3 km by assault battalion and DRG, the border abroad is almost 1,5 K km to "pick" for more than one year, not counting the city along the way, the Second World War, it seems, would still not have ended at such a pace and by such a methodology.
    And time is playing against us, over these months our "cooked partners" have already done everything on our borders, and even inside, they are active and inventive guys, very purposeful and stubborn, having gained experience in various meanness over the centuries, experience in destroying countries and they have rich peoples, incl. they have a lot more in stock, which means it won’t get better, it will only get worse and more difficult. And here non-professionalism, intellectual level, moral, business and creative qualities, correspondence to the level of officialdom of the complexity of problems, lack of creative initiative, sluggishness of the entire management system designed for a unitary task - ensuring profit and plunder of the Soviet heritage by international financial speculators plays against us and harms , both image and material more than b / d themselves.
