American edition: Ukraine lasts longer than expected

February marks the one year anniversary of the special military operation in Donbas and Ukraine. The American press writes that Ukraine is holding out longer than many expected from it. The American edition 19FortyFive writes about this, without indicating who exactly expected it.


At the same time, Kyiv is determined to continue the fight, and Moscow is full of desire to win

- notes the publication.

The author of the publication, Dr. Andrew A. Mikhta writes about the strengthening of the role of the human factor and the importance of the quantity, range and accuracy of ammunition during the conflict.

The conflict in Ukraine is rapidly turning into a "conflict of numbers," Mikhta notes. In other words, he wants to say that the number of personnel and weapons on both sides is playing an increasingly important role.

A Western expert claims that "Russian reserves" are depleted. At the height of the summer, Russia fired about 60 rounds a day, and sometimes more, according to Miht. Today the Russians fire no more than 000 shots. On top of that, Moscow also makes purchases of ammunition in Iran and North Korea, the expert claims, forgetting that the length of the front line has also significantly decreased since June.

Another challenge facing Russia, Mikhta says, is preparing a force of 300 from those mobilized. Mikhta believes that the quality of this contingent will not be high.

But Ukrainians are also feeling out of sorts, as NATO countries themselves are sounding the alarm about depleting their own supplies, and even the United States is beginning to feel it needs to prioritize, the expert notes. Kyiv, for active action, needs to have reserves at least twice their daily norm, Mikhta believes. But so far it is extremely problematic.

The 19FortyFive columnist concludes that the decisive factor in the events in Ukraine this year will be the ability of Moscow and the collective West to produce as many weapons and ammunition as possible. That is, the expert actually frankly says that in Ukraine there is an armed conflict between Russia and that same collective West.

      Well, the Sulyak Bandera was able to organize itself and the Jews will focus on profits ..
      The outskirts are now being robbed and depleted, especially in human terms under the artillery of Russia .. And then the wave will roll back from the EU, etc. to the places of those who died forcibly mobilized, etc.
      This "Tashkent front" of Russia is known .. And the patterns are the same!
      The same thing will happen in Russia, the 500s will return and they will become the coolest patriots And those who really fought will be chased Tipo, everything is busy and go through the forest .. We are getting ready for this option too .. These are starting to get into everything .. Shoot them need to !!!

        Ukrainians also feel out of place

        Yes, since 2014 Kyiv has not been sitting and feeding at ease.
        They stole mine and sold it.
        What you didn't expect, yes. Kyiv itself did not expect such support from the West. And the West itself did not expect this from itself. Well, what happened, happened.
        The main thing for us is not to miss our chance. As soon as the West has slack and they begin to weaken their sanctions, they will immediately introduce their own, so that they are even tougher.

      The American press writes that Ukraine is holding out longer than many expected from it.

      What is true is true, in the General Staff we probably thought it would be like in 08.08.08. and with a cavalry charge they moved the troops to the Kuev. But something went wrong, namely, for 8 years of the Minsk agreements, they were not badly pumped up with weapons and trained by "friends".

          The "victory" of Ukraine is not needed by the West, they do not know what to do with it. A protracted war seems to be beneficial to them, but it depends on who. USA - definitely. Old Europe - definitely not ... but they are not free in their actions. The calculation for a coup in Moscow and a revolt of the oligarchs did not materialize.
          England
          For this, she left the EU, so as not to fall under the rink of liquidating the EU as an economic competitor to the United States, but on the collapse of the EU, she expects to profit very much, taking part of Europe under her influence. And in the event of a coup in Moscow (they really counted on this), having a huge influence on the "Russian" oligarchy and politicians, get the maximum of goodies in Russia too. And yes - against the backdrop of European and, in general, world geopolitical transformation, take the Islamic world of the Middle East for yourself. To do this, they are now having a "marriage ecstasy" with Turkey (mainly through MI6 contacts and Turkey's assistance in their "Great Turan" program).
          Therefore, it is England that is interested in continuing the war for as long as possible ... more than anyone else. And together with the USA they have a purely Anglo-Saxon project "Ark" ... and it is also developing quite well. Today under the sign AUKUS.
          And what do we have according to the "Ark" plan?
          War in the Northern Hemisphere.
          Those who need to leave only firebrands in Europe and Asia are working on it now.
          Hence the conclusion - Russia needs a victory this year.
          And on all this landscape, the fate of "Ukraine" is completely lost, because it is not a goal, and not even a means ... it is a detonator.

        These are not the main characters, but the directors who lead this performance. In the same way it began in the war against the USSR. The Americans and the impudent people did everything to ensure that the Germans could attack the USSR. But, when it didn’t work out, they were very offended by the Germans and seemed to begin to help the USSR. For Stalin, this was good, although they were not listed as enemies. Now we have decided to show Russia who is holding the whip in his hands, who should jump over the fire with his paws between his legs. Why would someone need a colony when their land is from there to the moon. They definitely want what is already ready, capitalism in its initial stage, capture.

      As for the conclusion about the timing, it can be rephrased: "no one expected that Russia would get so bogged down in Ukraine!" No.
      Unfortunately, there are no adequate conclusions to which they came in the West, mostly propaganda husks, either we are complete weaklings, or we didn’t start anything! request
      The conflict clearly showed that we have many weaknesses in high-tech warfare and it is clearly too early to forget the Soviet experience in warfare feel industry will pull Soviet methods of warfare?
      And the war, of course, revealed just total fraud! This is probably one of the most important achievements of the NWO so far.

    Firstly, the front during this time has noticeably shrunken. Further, with the intensive development of UAVs, high-precision weapons began to develop (although strikes on squares are also practiced). From here follows the reduction of shots.

      Shell (and rocket) hunger is determined by the dates of release of unexploded shells and rocket fragments. They are collected and sent for examination.
      For example, 152 mm 2022 projectiles have recently appeared. They are of lower quality compared to shells from storage.
      And shells from storage become older than the years of manufacture.

      The trouble is that all these years nothing has been done to resolve the conflict. All responsibility falls on those who, either out of negligence, or out of ignorance, or with certain intentions (of course not in favor of both parties), prepare, provoke and develop the conflict, bringing it to the level of a global scale.

    It has been holding on for a long time only because the Kremlin considered that this is a common brotherly people for us. But looking at the fierce stubbornness and also the attitude towards our prisoners of war, they have long ceased to be a fraternal people. It's time to understand this and move on to the realities of today - only the interests of Russia and no fraternal peoples.

    To win, in addition to courage, you need, first of all, intelligence. Ukraine has 600 km000 and is ready to resist all types of weapons that the West supplies to it, and Russia has not even lifted a finger to stop these supplies. The best option for Russia in the current situation and the failed lightning offensive followed by a stalemate at the front is to deploy the army in defense in vantage ground and strong fortifications. At the same time, he must continue to punish the Ukrainian economy by bombing the remaining factories and continuing to destroy the power grid. The grain export agreement should be suspended because it gives Ukraine an important part of its economy and its foreign currency. It is extremely important to prioritize the production of cheap drones and modern missiles in order to wear down the Ukrainian air defense and keep hitting. goals as you wish.

      victory in the war with pressure on the economy will give little, the economy of Ukraine is secondary because practically everything can and will be received from the West, both the old weapons systems are supplied and food, the West will supply all this clothes, now there is no turning back for it either, the population will start to flee even more there will be fewer mouths at the same time they will promote Russia as arranging genocide, they can even do the repair of weapons and the rest and treatment of soldiers in a calm environment in the west. everything goes to the fact that all of Ukraine will become a training ground and a battlefield, and the rear will be safe in the west

        even the repair of armaments and the rest and treatment of soldiers they can do in the tranquility of the west.


        it takes an average of a week to repair equipment even in neighboring Poland (the road there is repair, the road is obstructive), and about the wounded, where the wounded person does not become a corpse, there is a rule of the golden hour (within an hour he must be taken to the hospital and he should be operated on). Therefore, for a successful war, it is impossible to do without repair enterprises in Ukraine and hospitals within an hour's drive from the front line.
        If Russia destroys the defense and defense-repair shops, then we still do not touch the hospital where the Ukrainian beast, which arranges the genocide of Russians in Ukraine, is being restored.

If during the Second World War lend-lease was about 3% of the USSR's own military production, then the pumping of Ukraine with weapons is about 100%! Ukraine does not hold on - it is not capable of it. She passed away in mid-March. But the NATO ambulance just arrived - and connected the ukroreich to the artificial respiration apparatus. Then she put Ukraine on her arm - and began to fight it with Russia.

      "Pumping Ukraine with weapons is about 100%!" ///
      ---
      What difference does it make where the weapon is made?
      Vietnam was 100% pumped up with Soviet weapons and defeated the Americans.
      Israel was 1967% pumped up with Western weapons in 73-100
      and defeated the Arabs.

      What matters is the result on the battlefield.
      And whose weapons are secondary.

    "Ukraine is holding out longer than expected"
    But one way or another, no matter how much you hold on, but the end is one, this is 404

    The collective West expected to make war for a couple of months with the hands of the Ukrainian army and "throw" the defeated Ukraine onto the balance sheet of Russia. And then, a hostile population, a ruined economy, plus wild partisanship should wear down Russia and, in the long run, destroy it. And it wasn't there...

    Why these articles!? -Someone, somewhere, once blurted out something with his tongue, and we urgently need to react to this / express regret /. It is necessary to work to the fullest and all talkers will come to naught.

    Ukraine holds out longer than expected


    Yes, such idiots who will die in the hundreds of thousands for the right to be a slave to the West still need to be looked for, and even the Americans were surprised at this. You give them only weapons, and they merrily run to die for the United States with songs.

    The fact that Ukraine lasted so long is not the merit of Ukraine.
    This is the result of miscalculations and mistakes made by the Russian leadership, which are being corrected now.

    It is not Ukraine that holds out longer, but the Kremlin is fighting stupidly.

    let's hope that in the new year there will be fewer miscalculations, or even disappear altogether ....

    The stronger, in general, then Ukraine will fall heavily later. Soon they won't even have a soldier left
