Former Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Land Forces: Ukraine will not gain military superiority over Russia and will not return the lost territories

Pushing the Ukrainian armed forces to launch a counter-offensive is not justified from a military point of view, since there is no hope for its success. This was stated by the former commander of the Polish ground forces, retired Armor General Waldemar Skrzypczak, in an interview with the Rzeczpospolita newspaper.

Skshipchak's theses are very interesting, especially considering that they are being promoted by a retired NATO security official, and even a Polish one. The general claims that at present there is no chance of ending the conflict by military means. Skshipchak states that neither side has the proper advantages to end the conflict militarily. The Russian armed forces have switched to strategic defense, but Ukrainian formations do not have offensive capabilities either.



For a successful attack on Russian-controlled territories, Skshipchak argues, the Ukrainian army needs to outnumber the Russian armed forces by four times. But Ukraine will never achieve such an advantage. Therefore, the Polish general concludes, the "time of politicians" is coming.

Zelenskiy's trip to Warsaw is the first in a series of visits aimed at forming a coalition of states that will support him in negotiations on Ukraine's future.

- Skshipchak commented on the visit of the President of Ukraine to Poland, which will begin today.

But even more surprising is that the Polish military expert is debunking the myth that the Kyiv regime will be able to regain the lost territories. It will not happen. Ukraine will not gain a military advantage over Russia and will not return the lost territories, the retired general Skshipchak concludes. Therefore, it is necessary to look for other solutions that would resolve the conflict.

It is necessary to find a compromise between the expectations of Ukrainians and what Putin wants

- the general notes.

According to Skshipchak, the West is tired of the fighting in Ukraine, and in this regard, the political solution appears to be optimal. But this will require the formation, according to the retired commander in chief, of a strong political coalition of Western countries, which would act as a “support group” for Zelensky during peace negotiations with Russia.

    Ukraine will not receive a military advantage over Russia and will not return the lost territories,

    The general says correctly, only now the "lost territories" will expand under the hand of Russia, as long as Zelya keeps talking.

        They won’t start anything there on the western edge, just waiting for them to become part of the Poles. This is the geyroppa where they are so eager.

      The general is right

      That's right, but if you notice they say it's mostly people with the prefix ex, that is, the same as you and I are civilians. Those in action think differently.

      North Korea has a long border with China. In the 50s, thanks to her, the United States failed to crush the DPRK. They also have nuclear weapons thanks to China. North Korea can only be defeated together with him.

          And what's the good of it? I am silent about Pyongyang, but Beijing has long had its eye on the Far East. Even on Baikal it is dirty. We didn’t have enough pulp and paper mills, so now the “yellow-faced brothers” are shitting in the taiga, cutting down the cedar. And you all ... yuan, yuan, but I don't care about yuan.

    For Ukraine, these are not "lost territories" at all, these are territories returned. And far from all territories have been returned, so everything is still ahead.

    Zelya has another option to keep access to the Black Sea, while, after the counteroffensive, other options are possible. I think that everything is being considered in the Pentagon, up to the introduction of "peacekeepers" in the event of our movement along the coast.

    Ukraine will not gain military superiority over Russia and will not return the lost territories
    Indeed, to hear this from a Polish general, albeit a former one, is amazing. At a time when the Western media, especially the English media, are full of articles about the imminent Ukrainian victory and the weakness of the RF Armed Forces, the Polish general is gaining courage to tell the truth. Morawiecki is probably hysterical: "How? Who dares?"

      As soon as a Western political figure acquires the prefix "EX", an EXhumation of the deceased takes place in his head. It was common sense.

    This is exactly what Russia does not need. Wherever the West breaks in, arm-twisting begins, and the fascist regime in Kyiv will remain.

    well, if only it’s optimal for the West, because the West now needs a respite to disperse its military-industrial complex and replenish the combat potential of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And only then in a year or two, completely solve the issue of Russia and simply destroy us all.
    Only the surrender of Ukraine will suit us.

    Skshipchak states that neither side has the proper advantages to end the conflict militarily.

    In such a situation, the search for vulnerabilities and the expectation of strategic mistakes of opponents begins. It is strange that the general recognizes the conduct of hostilities only with a clear superiority of one of the opponents, but is completely incapable of conducting military operations in the absence of a clear superiority. It is not surprising that the Polish troops almost immediately lost to Hitler, as soon as they realized that there was no superiority over the enemy. But the USSR was able to win, despite the fact that initially, the superiority was behind the Nazi army.
    Pumped to the very top with weapons, dill, which has gathered almost all of its mobile reserve, now represents a fairly serious force and, at the same time, is wary of the possibility of a serious offensive, because if it fails, there will no longer be forces to repel a counterattack. Therefore, the preparation of this offensive for them is so delayed and postponed to a longer period. The problem for them, as well as for us in other respects, is that having thrown large forces into the offensive and getting stuck in it, there may not be enough reserves to repel a counter attack. Both sides are waiting for the enemy’s mistake in the event of an offensive, the dill is trying to gather additional forces, to repel the oncoming threat, in case of its failure, ours are preparing defense lines and calculating options for the dill offensive, periodically strike at clusters and rear areas, preventing the accumulation of forces and creating tension " mini-offensives" in the Artyomovsk and Avdeevsk directions. Maybe I'm wrong. IMHO

    It has long been noted that many military men, as well as politicians, in the West, upon receiving the prefix "retired", sharply become smarter and demonstrate miracles of common sense. (In fact, there are no miracles in common sense, the miracle is that now someone in the west has it)

    The whole world will be better off if it is. It will be worse for the whole world if there is one hegemonic pole with a nuclear club. And without Russia, this can happen. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Hunger Games, only for the whole world.
