Hi! How could it happen, that the Ukrainians never managed a breakthrough to Mariupol? Lack on heavy weapons? It seems to me, that the positions there are very weak…

Oleksiy Arestovych, President Zelenskiy’s advisor explained 3 weeks ago that Ukrainian forces were insufficient in this area and “they will not be able to pass more than 120 kilometers in the bare steppe under air strikes from the Crimea and the Rostov region”

Noctulian

What are the chances of this conflict bogging down into the static frontline of the previous 8 years except on a much larger scale?
It seems the likely case will be total destabilization of Russia, civil militarization, radicalization across the continent and eventual balkanization / greater chaos. Is this assessment correct? A European ‘Syria’ of both Russia and Ukraine.

If there’s something i’ve learned in this 44 days long war is that Ukrainians love the name Oleksandrivka

Dima

Yep, according to statistics there are 121 Ivanivka’s, 107 Oleksandrivka’s and 106 Mikhailivka’s
