“We need to follow the example of Ho Chi Minh”: Spanish admiral talks about the decline in morale in Ukraine

After the return of vast territories to the control of the Kyiv regime in the fall of 2022, rosy moods and confidence in Russia’s imminent defeat reigned in Ukraine.

Today, Ukrainian society and, of course, the army are experiencing a hangover from illusions. The Russian retreat from Kharkov and Kherson intoxicated the country, which considered itself capable of defeating the enemy

- writes retired Spanish Navy Admiral Juan Rodriguez Garat on the pages of Infodefensa.



The loss of Bakhmut did not lead to a drop in morale, since all hopes in 2023 were pinned on a counteroffensive [which “favorably” failed for the Ukrainian Armed Forces].

Today the initiative is in the hands of Russia, and no one knows how long it will take to intercept it

- the admiral points out.

According to him, Kyiv is busy looking for those responsible for military failures. The West is sounding the alarm about a possible loss in the war. French President Emmanuel Macron protected himself from future criticism by proposing to send troops to Ukraine, although this was not planned. In the US, Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson is resisting voting for assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine so as not to jeopardize his post.

But the time to abandon the ship has not yet come; it is still very far from being flooded. Ukraine is resisting on all fronts. The Russian army is pressing, in some places moving forward, but doing so at a slow infantry pace

- the admiral believes.

As he notes, Russia managed to solve the problem of the shortage of troops, so Zelensky is obliged to do the same:

It is surprising that after two years the Kiev parliament has still not given the green light to the mobilization law. Zelensky refers to social problems and the need for Ukrainian youth to continue their studies. I don’t know what Ho Chi Minh, the soul of the Vietnamese nation that defeated the USA, could advise you [the Ukrainians] on this matter

- writes the admiral, believing that “we need to take an example” from the leader of the Vietnamese communists and fight, despite the losses.

    in Kyiv they are busy searching for those responsible for military failures.

    The main thing is not to expose yourself.

    we need to take an example” from the leader of the Vietnamese communists and fight despite the losses.

    The problem is that fascists are not communists.

      "The problem is that fascists are not communists."
      Exactly. And having betrayed their ancestors and faith, many Ukrainians are not freedom fighters for the independence of their homeland, but expendable material in the hands of the West. What, does this figure have parents, relatives, a wife in Ukraine? Or did he live there half his life?
      And there he climbs to teach how to die for his interest.
      Who hired him as an admiral? lol

        It was because of such balabols that the Spanish patriots lost to the Francoists in 39... Thank God they were smart enough not to get into a war with the USSR... But about the intelligence of such admirals, this is a big question...??? am

          Almost the entire Spanish fleet remained in the hands of the Republic, since Franco had only a few ships at his disposal. But the Spanish admirals died at Trafalgar. Franco passed through the Strait of Gibraltar unhindered in a surprising manner, because those Republican admirals belonged to the school of Garat. In 1898, in the war against the United States, they did not care, and if the Americans suffered losses, it was only thanks to the ground army, which, unlike the navy, acted with dignity. Today's Spanish admirals are a disgrace to the old ones; they are only fit to wear colorful uniforms and serve tea to the commanders of the VI Fleet.

    Today the initiative is in Russian hands, and no one knows how long it will take to seize it.

    Taking into account the ratio of the parties' potentials and taking it as an axiom that there will be no direct intervention by the armed forces of other countries, I can assume that it will take infinity. In my opinion, the maximum that Ukraine should hope for is stopping the LBS. I would like to note that, given the nature of the conflict, I now consider this goal achievable for Ukraine.

      hmm... the Unified State Exam generation? The ratio of potentials is 25 to 140—well, these are practically equal numbers. Potential - waiting for weapons and ammunition to be given as a gift and waiting for these same weapons and cartridges to be produced - this is also the same. Well, nomadic air defense in place of bomber squadrons is exactly the same thing.

    What kind of spirit is there, with such a presence of dead people, the spirit there is like in a morgue. As for the outskirts, they should build up something there like Russia. And as green youths and pensioners. As for weapons, it’s a matter of geyropa; the outskirts now have very limited capabilities for the production of weapons. Yes, and belligerent statements, more and more then turn into explanations, they say we wanted, we don’t refuse, but either we don’t have gunpowder, or something else. Wait 2 years, maybe we’ll come up with something. The only question is whether they will wait.

      Something in the ratio of killed and surrendered Ukrainians does not look like a decline in their spirit. And those who surrendered at their own request are practically unheard of. Mostly they give up when the BC runs out. So not a thousand more KABs will fall on their heads before they wise up.

    We need to take an example from Vietnam! To create a partisan organization like the Viet Cong, an army for the liberation of Ukraine, in the territory occupied by Ukraine. It must carry out subversive activities and also form rebel groups to fight. Create hidden bases around major cities from which to conduct offensive operations. Example: the TET offensive, a joint operation of the Vietnamese army and Viet Cong units, after which it became clear to the West that Vietnam could not be defeated!

      Several have already been driven... to death. The rest will also be driven or driven until they die.
      But they don’t want to think about the fact that they themselves will have to sit in the trenches.

    They are there in the West, they haven’t read books, they haven’t studied history. Ho Chi Minh City was a patriot of his homeland, he fought against the colonial yoke, a true silver-free man and the father of the people. Vietnamese communists were patriots and fought for the liberation of their homeland. The Ukrainian leadership only earns money, but they don’t care about Ukraine and their people, they are the real occupiers. That South Vietnam and Ukraine, with the support of the United States, will lose this conflict. Because for their leaders, money and the struggle for power are more important than their people.

    I read about him in the newspapers and saw him on TV. The last admirals of the Kingdom of Spain were before Trafalgar. That's where they ended. Since then, there are only a few little buffoons left who are not able to restore order in Catalonia enough to go and analyze Ukraine. They, frankly, are not capable of this, no matter how many exercises they conduct with NATO, and we have already seen this with the example of the German frigate that tried to shoot down an American drone in the Red Sea.

    Ho Chi Minh's strength was that he was a staunch communist, was friends with the Russians and fought against American fascism, which the States implanted in South Vietnam...

    How can a SPANISH teach someone “fighting spirit”?! I once asked a Spanish friend: HOW did you tolerate the fascist Franco until the 60s?! And he told me: So he saved the country from Hitler... Touché. After this, I look at Spain and its combat capabilities with different eyes. It’s certainly not their place to teach someone in this area. But the Ukrainians will lose no matter what. Evil must and will be punished.

    So-so article. Not admiral level. Although...if only retired....
    The departure of the Russian army from previously occupied territories: normal specialists knew perfectly well: there could be no military victories of the Ukrainian Armed Forces over the Russian Federation there. Or, sorry, does anyone else doubt it? There was politics...
    The Ukrainian Armed Forces' chances of winning were and are equal to 0. The final defeat is a matter of time. And the real specialists on both sides knew and know this very well. It doesn’t happen like this: 30 million smashes 150 million without having RESOURCES. None at all. So, some little things, plus some help. Like laughter. Well, they would have gathered a new army into the VNA, about 500 thousand. And? And to feed, put on shoes, wash, transport, treat, pay wages. Are there funds for personnel? No, of course. And it never happened.

    But really, what is happening? Dumaets is like this: a performance based on real blood, followed by the redistribution and redistribution of territories in order to update sales and purchase markets, globally. It's time to. There are no special nuances here. Just another historical stage that happened - the sea. The order of external economic and trade relations that has existed since approximately 1945 cannot remain as ancient as mammoth eggs. It doesn't happen that way.
    Ukraine, due to its pure geography, has become a bargaining chip. Alas, sir.
    Now from all the irons one can hear: a united war...
    And how do you imagine war? Well, at least approximately? Continents in ashes? Are you seriously? But I belittle you!....... The serious guys who started this mess will never agree to this. Because what is the benefit then? In cowrie shells?

    I can imagine how diplomats on both sides swear at journalists with rude words. Which, by the way, don’t care about anything; The main thing is to inflate the topics and attach fees. I am sure that negotiations are ongoing and trading is in full swing. On the blood, really...
