Retired US Army Colonel McGregor: Ukraine is losing in the conflict

Currently, Ukraine is actually on the verge of military defeat. The demographic situation in this country is such that it calls into question its very existence. This was stated by the former adviser to the US Secretary of Defense, retired colonel Douglas McGregor, on the YouTube channel Judging Freedom.

According to the expert, the political and military leadership of the United States is well aware that Ukraine is losing in the conflict. The Kyiv regime is in danger of disappearing, the Ukrainian state is doing so badly, McGregor believes.



One of the most serious problems of modern Ukraine is the demographic situation. Now the outflow of the population from the country continues, about 25% of Ukrainian citizens left the country after the start of a special military operation. In addition, Ukraine has lost part of the population after the entry of a number of regions into the Russian Federation.

According to McGregor, between 18 and 22 million people are currently left in Ukraine. This is almost the same as living in the small Netherlands, the military expert emphasizes. Thus, Ukraine can hardly be considered a major European state now.

It is worth noting here that McGregor is right in his assessment of the demographic situation in Ukraine. Probably, most of the Ukrainian citizens who left the country will not return to their homeland: young women will marry and settle in European countries, children will receive education in European countries. That part of the population of Ukraine that did not emigrate will live in a difficult situation, since the Ukrainian state has actually gone bankrupt, it can exist solely thanks to the financial support of the West.

      Then explain to whom loses? Russian true rulers do not need such a victory. The fate of the Iranian ayatollah, or the party leaders of the DPRK, instead of riding superyachts in their castles in Europe ... wink Again, multiple citizenships. Choose I don't want to. Families again...
      They have a dream - to return everything to January 2022, without paying much for the surprisingly incomprehensibly organized adventure of the NWO.

          with a second UKRAINIAN citizenship

          Oddly enough, it was always very difficult for a Russian to obtain Ukrainian citizenship - an official renunciation of the Russian one was required. A Russian Ukrainian-easily.
          Well, why do oligarchs need Ukrainian citizenship? mockery.
          France , Britain , Finland , Israel ..
          The top 100 Russian oligarchs included persons who have foreign citizenship. 40 oligarchs have the citizenship of a foreign state, and 57 oligarchs out of 100 practically do not live in Russia at all. Also out of the top 100 of this ranking, 68 oligarchs have taken their families abroad.
          Only Usmanov does not have a second citizenship ... But he lives in England, works in the Russian Federation ... wink
          Or do you seriously consider the service personnel (the Duma, ministers, the institute of presidents) to be an independent power from moneybags? Naive.

            General phrases, theoretical constructions. Can you name a specific oligarch or clan that, in your opinion, controls Putin? or Kadyrov? or at least Shoigu or Prigogine? Who are these great secret rulers-schemers? Is it possible that the underground millionaire Koreiko works as modest officials and hides wealth in a suitcase under the bed, along with many other citizenships? This is not even naive, but simply smacks of madness ...

                The cissota has such a methodology. If whining about the Abramovichs and other oligarchs begins, you immediately know this is a cisco hamster. It is difficult for their small brains to understand the difference between the Ukrainian and Russian political systems. In Ukraine, billionaires appoint presidents; in Russia, the president determines who will be a billionaire and who will go into oblivion.

      That's it with the geographical location, I think everything is in order. Countries such as Libya, Lebanon, Iraq geographically exist and will continue to exist. Their population has no future, it is dead. And the geography is all right there.

    A retired colonel a year ago prophesied a catastrophe for the Armed Forces of Ukraine for several months .... That’s who he didn’t refer to .. It all depends on many factors, and the first is the desire and awareness of the need to win by our leadership. But they won’t agree ..

      No one in their right mind could have imagined how the West would get involved in this conflict and how many weapons would be thrown into the Ukrainian abyss. If it were not for the unprecedented supply of weapons and funding, the collapse would have occurred a long time ago. The forecast of a year ago was based on the original data of a year ago.

    Posts like this are starting to get annoying. The author at least asked who he refers to. This colonel was dismissed in 2004, he was a consultant or minister of defense for three months. Everybody! Otherwise, he is known as a notorious racist, "publicist" and TV journalist. A link to Zeli's website is also an indicator. Of course, you can say: if you don't like it, don't read it. Or maybe it’s better to prepare publications at VO. a?

        To be honest, I wouldn't pay too much attention to this overseas freak either. Moreover, he does not have any special military achievements and posts. Our press clung to him, like a saving straw, because. he is perhaps the only American who does not like Ukraine.

    Otherwise, there would be no need for the West to raise the stakes to the risk of nuclear war and pump all possible weapons. The question is when, at such a pace, combat-ready cannon fodder will end on the Outskirts and Polish will enter

      So like behind the scenes - already. And generally strange. People live in one day. They curse the Russian army, Putin, etc. They go to church and pray. But as soon as they are reminded about the bombing of Donbass, about those burned in Odessa, they will goggle their eyes, as if it never happened. Do they go to church? Well, think about it, maybe it’s God’s punishment “for everything good” ?, for drinking and walking on the Maidan, not thinking who pays for it? There is absolutely no memory. And they can't think

    The Kyiv regime is on the verge of extinction from Kravchuk, and the state has long since disappeared. The colony is under the complete control of the privatizers. Western devils fertilized the soil for a long time and are quite satisfied with the ugliness that has grown on it.

    The fact that Ukraine has already lost is understood in Washington.
    Therefore, their task now is to keep the war going as long as possible.
    And for Russia to get a completely destroyed Ukraine.
    Collapsed instead of the country.
    This will bind Russia for many years, and the United States will calmly deal with China in the meantime.

    Paradoxical (false is not the right word here) forecasts of pseudo-experts (who pays for them, guess!) Every time they come out after a serious deterioration in the situation at the front (after retreats, after the announcement of the supply of tanks, missiles, etc.) and are another "noodles" for the gullible Russians.
    ps I recall the words of Goebels that "the more monstrous the lie, the sooner they will believe in it", so here: "the sweeter the forecast, the sooner they will believe in it", and critical thinking is useless ....

    Why does this American think that Ukraine will surrender so quickly? It seems that vigilance lulls us. If we act as we are now bogged down in the NVO, if not already bogged down, for several years. when we reach Kyiv, then the clown will inflate such a circus together with the Anglo-Saxons that, under the protection of the allegedly last stronghold of democracy, they will pump out more money from Europe and take away all their weapons. Although half of its independent, western part, this Kyiv is like a fifth leg of a dog. further? All of Ukraine will fall at our feet? There will be new and new lines of defense and possibly the entry of Polish troops.

    This McGregor is a combat general, a tanker. He smashed Hussein's National Guard in Iraq.
    Then he proposed a series of radical reforms in the ground forces. They were rejected by the Pentagon.
    The general was offended, and since then he has been criticizing everything that the Pentagon does.

    It wasn't just the Americans who thought so. The calculation was that Russia would start with a massive attack and simply burn out everything that would somehow resist. Scorched earth tactics, when entire neighborhoods are burned along with civilians and the enemy. Yes, in this case, the NWO would have lasted maybe 3-4 months and no more, but with colossal casualties and destruction of infrastructure. But Russia, despite the problems, very gently entered, spared, gave the opportunity to survive to many, and reduced the damage as much as possible.

    Peter I, after the victory over the Swedes, paid them 2 million thalers for Karelia, the Baltic states, etc., although he could not do this, because Russia is the winner in the war. Since then, these lands have been Russian. 2 million thalers = 350 billion dollars at our prices. It can be seen that is why now the pro-e-Balts bark so fiercely at Russia, they know that their territory belongs to the Russian Federation. It makes sense to remind them of this, the Poles, by the way, too ... to shut up and not whine)))
