American edition: Russian army's military successes make Western political elites nervous

The West is increasingly expressing concern about the military successes of the Russian army and the inability of Ukraine to hold its positions for a long time. According to former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, in a long-term conflict, Russia's position looks stronger. Newsweek writes about it.

Western political elites are starting to get nervous about the protracted military conflict in Ukraine. According to the same McFaul, the conflict is "hung", Russian troops are pressing, and Ukraine has less and less chance of winning this confrontation. And the longer it lasts, the less opportunity for Kyiv to end it with a victory.



Military operations in Ukraine have actually been “stuck” over the past few months. (...) It makes me very nervous about the ability of the Ukrainians to hold on and keep us engaged in this conflict in the long run

- said the former US Ambassador to Russia.

Time is working against Ukraine, and Kiev understands this. The special operation of the Russian troops has been going on for more than a year, and despite certain successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in which the Ukrainian army managed to restrain the Russian offensive, recent events show that Kyiv is yielding. Therefore, Ukraine needs a quick victory in the near future, otherwise the West will simply get tired of them and refuse military support.

Ukrainians do not believe us about the fact that time is working for them. They don't want a long fight because they don't think they can take a long fight with the Russians. Firstly, because they will run out of soldiers, and secondly, they suspect that they are not particularly dear to the West, and at some point the West will stop providing support.

McFaul stressed, adding that the United States must do everything for the victory of Ukraine.

      That's all right, because everything will be so - as with a rubber product.

        Another instigator from the United States, still does not calm down and raves about the victories of Ukraine, along the way demanding from the EU countries to pump Ukraine with weapons to the very top.

          McFaul: ....Firstly, because they will run out of soldiers, and secondly.....

          Mr. McFaul has the opportunity to distinguish himself and sign up as a "volunteer" in the Bandera troops, let him show an example of how to fight.

          Don't overdo it....
          After 53 years, the military (main) operations were stopped .... Well, like a cherry on the cake, a khokhlokukuruznik ..... Who not only gave PortArthur to China, but also fucked up all relations with the Yns and China itself .... And the mattresses continued to SUPPORT Yuk .... So your example is incorrect ...

          Both Koreas support. Southerners as a springboard against China, northerners - against Southerners.

      As my commander used to say, "Porridge is seething in the air." Half of the "unworthy" people are drowning for the fact that the fur-bearing northern fox is about to come to Russia, it remains only to press a little, the second half squeals with a scream, the client is gone, the plaster is being removed.

      After "First" It was possible not to continue...

      Everything is set to zero. On one single offensive, which for some reason should decide everything.

        Victories give rise to hope, and this will mean further funding. For after each "regrouping", the Ukronats received shafts of new weapons, incrementally.

        To be nervous in their terms means to pay yourself, from your honestly stolen ones. Over the past 80 years, they have got used to the fact that anyone will pay ... themselves, now they themselves

      Today, in our outback, some kind of regional office conducted a survey of residents on their attitude to power, which is strange only among pensioners over 65 years old. I have not believed in touching concerns from the state for a long time, but the collection and analysis of sentiments for manipulation in favor of partners is very even.

      In the 1996 presidential election in Russia, in the words of McFaul, "the forces of good won"

      A good diplomat, Boriska is forty degrees from the forces of good.)

      For the sake of this last phrase, the entire previous (so pleasant to commentators) text was written.

      The United States is used to "winning" by supplying weapons and meat! The USSR defeated fascist Europe under the leadership of Hitler, only then the Americans landed to collect trophies and territories! This is when it was seen that trophy teams would move faster than combat units!

      concern about the military success of the Russian army and the inability of Ukraine to hold its positions for a long time

      Three villages in a year - not very big successes of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation against the backdrop of the successes of the Red Army in 1943 - 1944, when all of Ukraine up to the Carpathians was liberated in a year.


      Ukraine has less and less chance of winning this confrontation. And the longer it lasts, the less opportunity for Kyiv to end it with a victory.

      It depends on what is considered a victory.
      The preservation of the Nazi, Bandera, revanchist regime in Kiev and the preservation of this regime of access to the Black Sea, the arrangement of the US Navy base in Odessa and Nikolaev, the deployment of troops and bases, US missiles in Kharkov, Sumy, Chernigov, a new temporary truce for rearmament and replenishment of losses The Armed Forces of Ukraine will be a resounding victory for Ukraine, NATO, the United States, and the entire collective West as a whole.

        No need to load children, here are the comrades who took the oath in 87, You haven’t hung in your father’s eggs yet. Then the Red Army grouping was 2 fronts and a couple of million.

          Then what is the point of uselessly messing about in Ukraine now with an expeditionary force of 300 thousand against a million-strong Armed Forces of Ukraine without any hope of victory and the specific goal of liberating Ukraine?

      The support of South Korea is not costly, on the contrary, it is beneficial for the West.
      Production is deployed there, cheap labor is used.

      Ukraine does not promise any benefits in the foreseeable future.
      The cost of maintaining it is constantly rising, along with the destruction of its economy.

      Time really does work for us.
