Russian predictions for a quick victory in Ukraine had been based on faulty Russian intelligence, which became obvious by Day Two of their invasion of the sovereign nation Ukraine. Two of Russia’s primary initial objectives were the capture of Ukraine’s two largest cities, Kyiv and Kharkiv. Those two objectives have now “become a desperate and bloody offensive to capture a single city in the east” – Severdonetsk, a small city that had a population of around 100,000.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is inflicting unspeakable suffering on Ukrainians and demanding horrible sacrifices of his own people in an effort to seize a city that does not merit the cost, even for him.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine that aimed to seize and occupy the entire country has become a desperate and bloody offensive to capture a single city in the east while defending important but limited gains in the south and east. Ukraine has twice forced Putin to define down his military objectives.
When the Battle of Severodonetsk ends, regardless of which side holds the city, the Russian offensive at the operational and strategic levels will likely have culminated, giving Ukraine the chance to restart its operational-level counteroffensives to push Russian forces back.
Russian forces are assaulting Severdonetsk even though they have not yet encircled it.
‘Paper Bear‘ Putin’s invasion has been a major disaster for Russia, especially by exposing Russia’s Military Weaknesses to the entire Planet Earth. Let me break that down a ‘Tad‘ more: The leader of Russia, ‘Paper Bear‘ Putin, didn’t even know how weak his infamous Russian Military was, and now not only does he know, but the *ENTIRE* Planet Earth knows.
‘Paper Bear‘ Putin’s invasion has already cost the lives of more Russian Troops in just *THREE* months than the Russian lives lost during the ten-year Soviet–Afghan War (1979-1989).
Two Examples of how bad it is going for Russia:
- 1) Russian Duma Approves Bill Raising Age Limit For Military Personnel To 65.
- 2) Putin sends previously mothballed T-62 tanks into Ukraine war.

Big Brother is WATCHING YOU – ‘There were five forms of governance that migrated from theory to reality in the 20th Century: Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism and Progressivism. The common denominator among them was unprecedented control and regulation by the State over human activity. It is delusional to think that the Totalitarian impulse expired with the 20th Century.’ – E. Nuff Said
