Fact Not Propaganda (3)

Post by Sertorio » Thu Jun 23, 2022 2:25 am

FACT: Russia is destroying the Ukrainian military capacity.
SOURCE: Asia Times
The war of attrition, in both materiel and manpower terms, that the Russians have chosen to adopt favors them over Ukrainian forces. Unless the Ukrainians can regain some mobility, they will be ground down – much in line with the announced Russian war aim of destroying Ukrainian military assets and capabilities.

That’s the reality. But as a US military intelligence observer notes, “in the meantime, there remains the cognitive dissonance from the [Western] reporting: The Russians are suffering from poor leadership, bad morale and poor weapons and the Ukrainians have superior weapons, superior leadership, off-the-scale morale and the home-field advantage. Yet the Russians are, at least for now, winning.”

In spite of the "cognitive dissonance" from the western reporting and in this forum, Russia is achieving its military and political aims. Particularly showing the world that NATO cannot coerce Russia.

...these comments aren't supported by it. Even an undergraduate would expect to lose points for that sort of thing.
