American observer: the West is worried about the destruction of Leopard tanks in the Zaporozhye direction

In the Zaporozhye direction, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are suffering heavy losses, including in Western military equipment. Many Western countries are seriously concerned about this, American columnist Fred Pleitgen notes on CNN.

According to the journalist, the West is most worried about the destruction of German troops by Russian troops. tanks Leopard in Ukraine. Pleitgen stressed that "a collection of military equipment transferred by the West" was destroyed in the Zaporozhye direction.



Now the Western patrons of Ukraine are watching the events in the Zaporozhye direction with great apprehension. If the Ukrainian formations suffer a crushing defeat, then the situation may change very seriously, and this will lead the West to the need to further change its "Ukrainian" policy.

The publication Politico is already publishing photos of the destroyed Leopard tanks, which participated in the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zaporozhye direction. The Western press is forced to acknowledge the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are also suffering significant losses in personnel.

Earlier it became known that Russian troops had already destroyed a large number of enemy tanks and armored vehicles, including the famous American Bradley infantry fighting vehicles. The hopes of the Ukrainian command for Western equipment, which supposedly was supposed to bring victory to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, clearly did not come true.

Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg actually made the prospects for the so-called "Euro-Atlantic integration" of Ukraine directly dependent on the outcome of the armed conflict. According to Stoltenberg, if Kyiv loses, then there will be no question of Ukraine's membership in NATO.

        You laugh, and the geeky ugly girl really doesn’t forget to PR on anything:
        By destroying the dam of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station, Russia caused ecocide, for which it must be punished.

        Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg wrote about this on her Twitter page.

        "This ecocide is a continuation of Russia's unjustified full-scale invasion of Ukraine. This is another crime that has taken away the world's language. Our eyes are again on Russia, which must be held accountable for its crimes," Thunberg wrote.

      most of all The West is disturbing destruction of German tanks by Russian troops Leopard in Ukraine.

      The true face of Western "benefactors" is beginning to appear, they no longer hide the fact that iron is more expensive than any number of Ukrainians.
      NATO is a club of winners

      Ukraine is not a member of NATO, so these gentlemen, in any case, will blame everything on the Ukrainians.

    The West is concerned about the destruction of German Leopard tanks by Russian troops in Ukraine.
    And when Challengers appear on this list, then perhaps the Americans will think about whether it is worth sending Abrams to Ukraine. The Western media can no longer hide the fact of the destruction of the equipment supplied to Kyiv, and they are forced to print the truth, albeit in doses. And this plays into our hands in the information war.

    Did they really believe that these tanks were invulnerable during a frontal assault? In addition to technical characteristics, you also need the right application tactics. Most likely there was a psychological calculation that the Russian army would scatter at the mere sight of Leopards.

      With such a hyena at hand, leopards must be protected so as not to be left with a naked "madame sit" against the Pshek abrams. Otherwise, psheks will arrange for the Germans (... "and the German went wrong ...") and reparation and annexation and indemnity. And in the Reichstag they will tell.

    The West is not worried about the number of armored vehicles knocked out, the West is worried about the emerging offensive stalemate, the Russian army is not the army of Yugoslavia and Iraq. The problem of gray zones from 5 to 15 km has emerged. , but the modern battle has made adjustments and is not joyful. Losses for the West will be unacceptable if anything. Our men are now creating conditions for negotiations on the LBS, on our terms.

    Probably, some bourgeois are beginning to realize that after some time, a well-armed, well-trained and battle-hardened Russian army will be on the border of Poland, which knows perfectly well all the weaknesses of enemy weapons, and the strengths of its own. But they offered them in a peaceful way. Nazism cannot change its vile essence...

      I don’t think that the West will print such a thing, even Rzeczpospolita pshet about the “khokhlonashup” that he has no information from the Ukrainian side, although the Poles only rewrite American and British publications like “the Ukrainian army has some progress according to British intelligence.”

    USA Absolutely nothing threatens! Why should they curtail assistance to Bandera, who every day cause damage to Russia in people and equipment? Why should they refuse when Russia is at war, and they sit and drink aromatic coffee and chew on crispy French buns? Recently I watched the program "The Great Game", so there the AMERICAN political scientist said that the vast majority of Americans support Ukraine in the war with Russia! The war will continue until there is a threat of a massive Russian nuclear strike on US territory! This is the ONLY way out!

      Finally, a sensible comment. But for this you need to cancel part 1 of Article 15.4, cancel the ban on state ideology, recognize the collapse of the USSR as illegal in court and restore it only as a territory under international law following the results of 45 years, because it was in violation of the constitution of the USSR - it is first of all

    If the Ukrainian formations suffer a crushing defeat, then the situation may change very seriously, and this will lead the West to the need to further change its "Ukrainian" policy.

    There will be no change in "Ukrainian politics". Where will the West find free cannon fodder, ready to fight for the illusory idea of ​​joining the EU and NATO.
    Until June 1st, there was time to change their minds Ruin, but they are like a rabid herd of bulls rushing into the abyss. This will be the first and last independent war.

    The West is worried about the destruction of tanks

    Normally so - concern for what they purposefully shoot and destroy mainly Russians...
    Okraintsy, in front of the West, did not justify their hopes in this aspect, and - the material was tested, not professionally suitable.
    In general, how at the current stage of development, humanity has sunk in the choice and promotion of the method of relations between people (starting with management), from an equal individual, descended to radicalism, in which there is no hint of democracy by definition. In fact, they are betting on genocide. What nation, people - this is secondary, of course, it is better to start from the far corner ...

Their strategy scares them, it is these brigades that are trained and armed and operate according to the NATO standard (strategy). And here is the most important point. We reorganized , take into account the mistakes and beat the enemy properly. This is how it should be. Our strategy and the courage of the warriors have always terrified the West.
