We are using tactics in Ukraine we wanted to make war longer to make Europe and American economy weak sanction are also helping us to make their economy weak we are not mad to use nuclear we will win war I promise not to use any tactical or real nuclear because we don't have to we are just playing with Ukraine to make western weaker and use our weapon stock piles and I have order my commander to push back where Ukraine and western clowns are temporarily enjoying victory only till October from November 1 we will show Ukraine who we are and what we are capable of because I wanted to fight Ukraine in winter from February 26 I am master of making war long using low forces but in November I won't show mercy on Ukraine I will crush Ukraine army economy politics in upcoming winter where there will be real war and all weapons except nuclear But for now I am in patientce inpiste of western propoganda

@Ray Lopez Heard that India is expressing gratitude that the Soviet Union had supported its independence, but now with some of its citizens in Ukraine caught up in the war, I guess it now isn't as supportive of Russia's actions. Still it reminds me of cases where some countries support certain other countries that're more commonly denounced by others because of benefits accorded by the 2nd country more specifically to the 1st country. Then the way we should respond to the situation might not be so clear cut. For example, a reason that Singapore's 1st PM Lee Kuan Yew was friendlier to the former Indonesian leader Suharto was that he'd ended the guerrilla warfare initiated against S'pore by his predecessor (that he'd also overthrown)

Considering that the USA will likely be able to supply the Ukrainian military with winter gear better than Russia can supply its forces, Ukraine may be able to gain even more ground with the ground frozen enough to support vehicles.

@Nerdvana'sDomain The south of Ukraine has an almost Mediterranean climate. Comparable to southern France. Winters are fairly mild there, with an average temperature of 4°C (39.2°F) from December to February. It may get cold for a few days, but it won't be enough to make water passable for vehicles, let alone tanks. In general, Ukraine has a temperate continental climate, although it can get colder in the north and northeast than in the south, but Ukraine is not Siberia, Alaska, or North Scandinavia.

@H B said: "The Russian regulars stayed home because Putin thought he could take Ukraine with troops that were considered expendable, and because Russia's generals refused to commit their best troops to the battle.." So you are saying that the best Russian troops were guarding Kamchatka while the scrubs were fighting in Ukraine. NOW, Putin is drafting citizens who will be trained and do what...? Fight in Ukraine, same scenario as before. Replace the Elite troops in Kamchatka so THOSE troops can go fight in Ukraine? In what world does a general refuse their orders and still remain a general? That's obviously not true. I don't believe you know anything about the Russian troops.

America is not perfect, it has done some questionable things over the years. But now that America is being compared to Russia’s invasion and China’s belligerence, America is looking better than ever. Plus, Ukraine’s war performance has taught the world that America is stronger than they thought. That means power.
juanfer andrade
A major problem too is the corruption in the Russian army resulting in ignored commands and faulty equipment since many commanders had freedom to act as they please and use their soldiers as they see fit which they want to keep, also some soldiers or commanders make a profit selling wires, components and stuff from unused equipment and could only be noticed when it wouldn´t work mid-war. The main takeaway from this war is that corruption, undiscipline and definitely a lot of other problems in their military can be lethal in any.

take a coke and burger ... Only for the massacre in Odessa, let's not go any further, Russia should have intervened in 2014. Why it didn't, they have various justifications, but now we see that it should have intervened then. Otherwise, the aggressor states are respected in the world today, all themselves bearers of freedom and democracy.. Those who are the aggressors today are shedding crocodile tears, because the one who is now the aggressor is not a member of their club and is robbing them of a new colony already registered. Everyone knew that there would be war if they tried to enter Ukraine and Belarus, written and warned. Since a neutral Ukraine is not possible, the Russians willy-nilly go for its dismantling. They created a monster on the border with their stupidity, now they will pay dearly for it. Ukraine is destined to be like Pakistan to India in Western plans. Everything could have ended nicely by granting autonomy with the entry of the OSCE, but it is not worth it when the US and their local contractors allowed this. Obviously, before signing the peace, it is necessary to collect 200 billion for the "donated" weapons to the Ukrainians and who knows how many hundreds of billions to the closest NATO "partners" in addition to achieving the planned long-term geostrategic goals. The fact that the damage to the UA will be measured in trillions, that the UA will probably lose 25-30% of its territory in the end and you have millions of refugees and, in the best case, hundreds of thousands of dead, they are not interested.

After that humiliating defeat in 2014, not to mention the Holodomor in which millions of Ukrainians starved to death under Stalin, they're highly motivated to not let stuff like that happen again. And with Russian soldiers committing war crimes to Ukrainian civilians in areas they occupy, it further gives the Ukrainians more reason to push the orcs out of their country.
wakannnai1 Mese fa
Just a reminder that the PLA operates on similar doctrines. Ultimately, the command structure and tactics are what are winning this war for the Ukrainians. Ukrainian forces have focused on exploiting as many shortcomings and gaps in the Russian army. After that they seem to be doing devastating counteroffensives once Russian forces have been "softened."

One of the reasons for Russia's lack of sophisticated weaponry is that such weaponry is heavily reliant on modern electronics. Russia's access to such devices is limited by export embargoes and sanctions, so it has struggled to design and build equipment which can match what the West can supply to Ukraine.
JohnJ469 Mese fa
The crazy part is that the tactics described at 6:00 are literally out of the book "Achtung Panzer" by Heinz Guderian. Russia is being beaten by tactics taken from "Tank Warfare 101". Even more, Ukraine is doing this without overwhelming air superiority.

I’m no war strategist whatsoever. I’m curious though. What would happen if a mass exodus of russians who are drafted turn on their own and fight for Ukraine? With such low morale and desperation to not be at war, I wonder if some would or have already considered switching sides mid-war. Especially if those forced to be there already had low loyalty to begin with.

@Sebastian Baez the poor souls from occupied areas of Ukraine who were forcibly conscripted into the Russian army would beg to differ with you.
Many already have. Reportedly, Ukraine is also offering to pay Russian conscripts up to $1 million if they surrender and turn over equipment. Like $1 million for a fighter jet, $200K for a tank, etc. Plus medical care, protection and Ukrainian citizenship. Sure beats no socks, no food, sick, cold and under constant attack.

I keep hearing about the coming winter slow down. I'm REALLY hoping that the west has supplied Ukraine with the equipment it needs to press the fight and avoid that. Russia cannot be allowed months to rest and re-arm!

I think motivation certainly a large factor, but also, the Ukrainian army now also has volunteers from a non-military background. Smart people like engineers, who have a different, often creative, non-military approach, this makes it more difficult for the opponent to predict what they will do.

Russia retreated to CONSOLIDATE its grip into the Newly ANNEXED territories! That along with the seizeing of Crimea was their original STRATEGIC MILITARY GOAL! Having achieved that; They have ordered their main expeditionary forces to retreat behind their new defensive line! Those ANNEXED territories ARE THE NATO BUFFER zone they were denied originally by the recently radicalized Ukranian backed govt backed by America.

In the Kherson region Russia actually helped with it's own demise by moving in extra troops into a situation where everybody announced for months that Ukraine would cut off all supply lines and then put pressure on the defender.

@ricardus lordhighexecutioner when they do these prisoner swaps it means there are pow's... in general. How the tactical situation goes doesn't matter much, in the long run Russia can not supply the Kherson area and Nova Kakhovna will be taken, also blocking again freshwater supply to Crimea. Kerch bridge will soon be 100% cut off, and then the situation really becomes difficult even for Melitopol.
ricardus lordhighexecutioner
that is false. No Russians have been taken prisoner or surrounded, the break out in the river was caused by insufficient troop concentrations and a long front line. That has since been remedied with a shorter line in the short term, and, in the long term, the tripling of the force will permit a push out of that area towards Nikolaev and Krivoy Rog.

@anonymous 35 they may have 1 million men. But that doesn’t mean they are ready or fit for war. They’ve lost thousands of tanks, artillery pieces, trucks, etc. they don’t have the equipment to properly field 1 million men for war.

Frankly, since Putin has been threating Nukes? You do not escalate for MAD/Nukes if you are winning. Thats a sign of desperation/losing control of the situation, particularly as he has usually, to the best of my knowledge, been portrayed as a strong man. Also, yeah, on reflection, it makes sense that since the last time Russia invaded that wary nations in the area would have invited trainers in to prepare for the next time something happened. So that makes a good deal of sense.
ricardus lordhighexecutioner
Putin never threatened nukes. He said that all means would be used to defend their territory. The nuclear doctrine has not changed. It remains 1) Nukes against Russia or allies, and 2) Conventional attack threatens the independence of Russia. Hence, this "all means" is subject to this doctrine. The US does wish to destroy Russian independence so perhaps it's a message for the US to not try making it come true for the hour may come for nuclear weapons to be used should the conditions exist. That would be the US's own fault.

@erik eguia Why it doesn't work for American army in Somalia?
Literally today the Kherson counteroffensive seems to be starting a similar massive push. More than 27km of land liberated so far. It's astounding how Ukraine is managing to go on the offensive against the second "strongest" army in the world and win in such decisive fashion. The gap between Ukraine's actual firepower/equipment versus their achievements is, in my opinion, equal to that of the Blitzkrieg in France by Germany. Sure the Germans were faster, but they had arguably a stronger force and far better preparation and equipment for offensive maneuvers such as the Luftwaffe and Panzer squads. Ukraine is managing this with just artillery, obsolete tanks and drones as primary support equipment.
@Unapologetic Patriot You have to equip that manpower. Supply it with ammo, food, water and other utilities. And you have to keep them happy. It's better to have 10,000 well-equipped happy soldiers than 20,000 ill-equipped, underfed, unhappy and rioting soldiers. And like Russia is finding out now, it's also easy to lose track of them and get them encircled and destroyed or capitulated due to lack of administrative power to actually manage such numbers.
Unapologetic Patriot
@MasterChiefSamus I don’t see how manpower Is ever a liability. You can’t seize ground, cities and towns storm trenches without man power. When you are Ukraine and you lack AirPower, and sufficient artillery support, what modern equipment are you relying on. You need men, tanks, infantry support vehicles. MAYBE America we could forfeit manpower. Our doctrine immediately demands air superiority.
@Unapologetic Patriot Modern equipment is far more effective at neutralizing manpower advantages than WW2 equipment. Ukraine's manpower isn't as huge of an advantage by itself than it was for, say, the Soviet Union during WW2. When bridges and main roads can be easily destroyed by rockets, missiles and artillery shells, manpower can actually become a liability. Ukraine's performance depends on so many other factors, that they seem to be extremely good at managing as well as having their manpower advantage.
Unapologetic Patriot
@MasterChiefSamus Um no it’s really man power. The Russians are holding a front line that is over 1000km with less than 200,000 troops. That is only 200 soldiers per km. And often frontlines need rear lines and many support troops behind enemy lines. Since this is a “special” military operation, some Russian soldiers have been contract soldiers who’s contract has or will be expiring. In other words many of these troops are volunteers of some sort. Not to mention heavy causalities too. The Ukrainians started off with less troops than Russia and now have substantially more due to their early Mobilization and reserve call up. Ukrainians are able to throw more punches and with more mass in their punches. And I’m sure western intelligence has been feeding the Ukrainians on Russian weak points.

The Germans also went around the French defensive line going through a third country (Belgium) and then having an easier time charging into France from Belgium as France had not wanted to aggravate Belgium by building large fortifications on its border with Belgium.

@Ryan Jackson I think it is the best time for a surprise attack with the current attack happening right now Ukraine won’t look ready to get everything ready for another offense witch would catch the Russians off guard again

There are no surprise attacks. Building up a surprise attack would require massive amounts of additional effort: radio silence, code changes, massive deception measures. These sorts of sophisticated measures are difficult for professional, highly-trained armies to pull off (and even then, NATO has been monitoring every square yard of the battlefield for months). I shudder to think of the level of chaos trying to do them with tens of thousands of barely-trained, poorly equipped conscripts.

I think the value of motivation is sometimes underrestimated. You can have so many men and guns, if they have no motive, no goal they fight for, it is useless.

The Soviet Union gave up and left Afghanistan and it was likely significantly more powerful than Russia is today.
One thing to note about Russia and smart munitions is that what smart munitions they have are largely dependent on GPS guidance, and the US controls most GPS satellites and cut off Russia's access to the network. Russia has no alternative to fall back on, so their smart munitions were completely lobotomized.
@Jonathan Morgan GLONASS isn't nearly as precise as GPS, doesn't have as wide of coverage, and evidently cannot be made to be compatible with their smart munitions since they keep missing everything. There is a ITvidr called Lazerpig who is a former analyst for the UKs MoD who has been breaking down Russia's stupendous failure in Ukraine in several videos. I suggest checking him out. He has some excellent takes and insights on the matter.
Jonathan Morgan
Not completely true. Russia has their own GPS system of satellites called GLONASS. There are about a dozen less of them than the US around the world, but I'm sure there are enough of them over Ukraine that they can work with.
I really hope Ukraine comes out on top. Looks pretty promising but after my 1st wish for a Ukrainian victory, my 2nd wish is to see Putin's face when he gets taken away in handcuffs for war crimes. That smug look he always has. You'll be hearing and seeing him so angry. And a totally different face. God be with you Ukraine.

What a tragedy of facts - At the start of the war the Ukraine defense consisted of 54 Javelin launchers That were sold to Kyiv by US and 2,000 NLAWS & 30 trainers that were gifted to Kyiv by UK a month before the invasion - which do you think had the most impact of blunting the assault on the capital in the first 10 days?

there’s one key factor about winter coming up that you forget in the spring summer and fall the land around Ukraine has a very spongy texture which left all the tanks driving only on roads. All the military vehicles only drove down the roads. Once winter comes in the ground freezes all those vehicles can travel wherever they want across fields in the Ukraine…. I have a feeling this is why Russia has been conscripting soldiers but not sending as many into Ukraine I have a feeling they’re trying to build up for one last push in the winter. Although I’ve been saying for the last while the russias at the end of the war we have to realize Russia’s tactic is to destroy everything as they retreat…. With Putin having his own people in this country wanting to get rid of him I have a feeling that he’s going to use nukes before the end of the war.

7:11 - That is not exactly true, it might be for some, but a more common view is that anyone non-russian, Ukrainians in particular, are second class citizens or even sub-humans, most russians casually use slurs when referring to Ukrainians, this Ukrainophobia has been instilled in them for a long time. Sometimes it even goes into a territory of double think or cognitive dissonance or something like that, where one moment they use the "brother nation" card and the next they call you a slur and say you shouldn't exist, i would say this kind of behavior is even more common than just regular hate.

Part about Himars Munitions is wrong. US and allies only confirmed and gave Ukraine short range missiles for Himars 70-80Km max range. ATCAMS 300km range missile use hasn’t been confirmed. US denied supplying it.

AT 53 years old and having lived through the cold war, it is a huge relief to know that Russia is indeed a paper tiger and we have no fear of going into or losing a war with them. Then again, if you look at their history, they've always been inept. When is the last time you bought anything that said, "Made in Russia?" Everything they make is Kmart quality.

I never thought that after 1942 I would ever see tanks rolling into another country. If anything, it showed just how bad the Russian army is. An army once feared during the cold war. now looks weak. No one wins if he decides to use nukes. The world suffers if he does. Glad more counties are joining NATO to stand up to this type of invasion.
Matt Guey-Lee
I think based on what Ukraine has done in the past 2 days in Kherson I don't think it was a feint. It seems Russia pulled too many troops from the East to reinforce Kerson. I think what happened around Karkiv in this video was just being opportunistic.
unclesmrgol dragon
Your point is well taken. But consider that the Russians have been forced into reactive mode from their previous proactive mode. This means that Ukraine can perform acts to shape the battlefield to come, and then exploit the weaknesses they've forced the Russians into creating.

Comparing the sizes of Russian vs Ukrainian forces committed to the fighting along the 1,000km line of contact (several times more Ukrainians, plus willing to take more casualties) makes it clear the Russians must fall back or perish. They choose the former - as Russians have done in centuries past. Large-scale ground warfare has evolved by 60yrs in the past 6 months. Much depends on Russia's ability to rapidly learn and evolve its doctrine, incorporate it into the new 300,000 reservists' training, and equip & supply them optimally. It remains to be seen as well, whether Russia's reliance on winter as an ally that'd served her so well over millennia, will still do so in the 21st century. It'll be interesting to come back to this video in March 2023 to see how well it'll have aged with 20/20 hindsight.

I’m no war strategist whatsoever. I’m curious though. What would happen if a mass exodus of russians who are drafted turn on their own and fight for Ukraine? With such low morale and desperation to not be at war, I wonder if some would or have already considered switching sides mid-war. Especially if those forced to be there already had low loyalty to begin with.

Right way of spelling would be "Butcher of Bu[t]cha" (ukr. "Буча"). Victims of Bucha will be revenged as well as victims of Irpin, Hostomel, Izym (which is already liberated to) and Mariupol. Thousands of people were tortured and murdered just because of their nationality. Ukraine will prevail. P.S. Never miss an opportunity to thank citizens of Western countries for their support.
