The war is going to a critical phase. Russia retreated after the culminating point(40 days). There is a change in strategy to concentrate on offense in Donbas while defending in the south. The crux of the Russia-Ukraine war is Donbas. NATO was providing lot of weapons from 2014, which Ukraine was using in Donbas. I guess Russia is now concerned about defending the south and trying to take full control of Donbas. The Russian retreat still looks fishy. There is something more damage planned on Kyiv. This may cause the war to enter more deadly phase with NATO getting more weapons to Ukraine and hitting Russian position inside Russia. Russia can create a fake chemical attack and nuke the Kyiv to bring the war under their control and to make NATO go one step back.
Last week Russia said they will lessen the attacks on Kyiv and Chernihiv.
This week Russian troops retreat, so it was a deception attack or to frighten Ukraine. They could have done heavy bombing on Kyiv, but the attacks were less other than some show off.
There was genocide on Bucha area. Most I believe due to heavy fighting. There are instances of purposeful killing civilians too which Russia denies. Possibly they might have challenged the Russian soldiers.
Russia has setup mines to make the recovery more difficult to Ukraine.
To me Russia has changed its strategy on Kyiv. I suspect they are plannig for more devastating attack as one of their major goal of removing Zelensky is not achieved. I suspect with Russian forces retreated, the Kyiv is wide open for a chemical, biological or tactical nuclear strike.
Russia knows they need to sacrifice a lot of troops and equipment’s for capturing Kyiv. So I presume this is a tactical move by Russia. A potential Russian strike on Russian army or city with chemical weapons by Russia, claiming Ukraine attack and a nuclear response strike is a possible chance to end the war in favor of Russia.
- Phase 1 of operations over as per Russia. Now concentrating on Donbas.
- Russia pledged to reduce the attacks in Kyiv and Cherniv as part of truce meeting. i.e, Donbas can expect more attacks.
- Russian arm depot inside Russia is hit with a strategic missile strike. Its interesting how they were able to defeat S-400. Did Ukraine received Cruise missiles? Was there any relation with Indian accidental missile strike? It might be to test the S-400 missiles vulnerabilities than Pakistan defense. Possible chance.
- Real offense troops for the Kyiv is still hiding in Belarus border. The stalled convoy is to setup defense around Kyiv.
- I have 100% confidence Putin wants to remove Zelensky out of the power.
- Zelensky is now in a situation he cannot go for truce without giving up Crimea and Donbas as well as getting killed or captured. He has to fight to his last blood.
Isn’t the same Syria war extended in Ukraine? FSA was backed by US and captured most part of Syria. Some part moved away from FSA and joined ISIS. US came and start bombing ISIS. FSA has given the ground support. Russia entered the war and started attacking FSA in the name of ISIS as they don’t differentiate FSA and ISIS as both were threats for Azad. War ended once FSA and ISIS lost. Same war continued after 2 years of covid in Ukraine. Even if Putin use tactical nuke in Ukraine, I won’t be surprised. Reason : he will force the Ukrainian leadership to surrender and just a warning to NATO to back off from their backyard. If he can decide to invade Ukraine irrespective of NATO having 30 countries, he has the mentality to use nuke also. If he does nuke a city in Ukraine, it is not his last resort of too many troops dies, but rather to end the war by force on the time he decides.
Russia destroyed arms depot with long range missiles which includes weapons delivered by West.
Launched a Satellite with name Z to specifically spy more on Ukranian armed forces.
Russia is setting up defense in the outskirts of Kyiv. So their plan looks like to pound with artillary, bombs, rockets and missiles till the city surrenders or weak. Thats what they are doing with Mariupol.
Russia setup SAM and Bastion missile battteries across Ukraine. Seems like they wanted to control the airspace and sea to avoid fast delivery of weapons by west.
As expected the ground troops offense is happening only on Luhansk and Donesk.
Duterte warns: ‘Once Putin resorts to nukes, China will invade’ – Possibly he meant Taiwan.
Russia says Ukrainian forces have until 5am Moscow time (02:00 GMT) on Monday to surrender in the eastern port city of Mariupol; Kyiv rejects the demand. So real atrocity yet to begin than thought.
Foreign Media Propoganda
Any idea why these western media cries wolf? Only propogandas not even 1% of the reality.
In The Guardian
Russia’s astronauts enter the space station in yellow and blue flight suits.
Cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev said each crew picks the color of the flight suits about six months before launch because they need to be individually sewn. And since all three of them were graduates of Bauman Moscow State Technical University, they chose the colors of their prestigious alma mater.
The use of the missiles is the latest sign Vladimir Putin is getting increasingly desperate as his military struggles to carry out his illegal invasion of Ukraine.
To me Russia is not desperate, rather testing their capabilities. The same news channel gives the other propoganda that Russia will invade NATO countries next. Both are 2 extreme propoganda saying on one side Russia is weak and another side Russia is aggressive and strong. They don’t even know how to propogate the propoganda news. They should learn from Indian medias.
Russia will have the plan to even nuke Kyiv. When a war is decided, they have all the strategies on controlling the war to their favor. Time only matters for them to change the strategy. The demands in peace talks and show of strength are just to bring Ukraine to understand that Russia have the choice to win the war or make the peace. Mariupol they wont nuke, but will have a more collateral damage with the use of Grad system or Vacuum bombs and more civilian casualities expected. It may be a warning for Kyiv. Ukraine always forgets Russia is nuclear deterrant. Russian plan of leaving Kharkiv city shows that they want to encircle the troops in Luhansk. Same for Donesk. They will be able to capture more Ukranian troops and armed vehicles in a better way. Russian ultimatum on Mariupol city shows their interests to capture it. i.e, Regions near Sea of Azov was their one of the key objectives.
My predictions are over in Russia – Ukraine war.
I will evaluate after the war. One Russia announce a permanent cease fire over Ukraine.
Kyiv will be targetted after Mariupol.
There will be a big Atrocity done by Russian troops in Kyiv.
Post war Lunetsk and donetsk completely under Russian control.
Like Crimea , Mariupol is a strategic importance for Moscow and will be retained by Russia to have land access to Crimea and Moscow silk route.
Current status is Sea of Azov access is temporary lost for Ukraine, which shows Mariupol is almost done other than some pocket resistence.
Next prediction is China invasion on Taiwan. Before end of 2022.
This is prediction, so exact date is not the matter, its whether the event occurs or not.
What can bring peace now
NATO/US/France can discuss with Zelensky to step down and possibly avoid further causalities. Move his millitary assets to Poland. But NATO countries are sending weapons, cheering Zelensky and Ukranian troops. What Ukraine needs now is not millitary aid, rather food and medicines as well as to assist in refugee crissis. They also need a quick resolution on the war. Do you think Russias concern of NATO expansion is invalid? NATO should have been dissolved after termination of WTO. NATO is just a US strategy to put Europe inbetween Russia and US. They want Russian nuclear missiles to fly first to Europe than US. Its European leaders responsibility to think and decide how to tackle Russia and NATO. They cannot afford to have the same mistake Ukranian leaders did. West says Russia is bleeding and Russian military is incapable. What Ukraine has done is only a bloody nose to Russia. Ukraine is the one bleeding badly. The damage done with collateral damage, loosing of land, military assets , troops and civilian assets cannot be compared with Russian military and troop loss. Its an unequal war West is supporting. West can influence at least Zelensky to end the war.
Ukranian people should realize they are caught in-between NATO and Russia, blaming Putin will not help. Ukraine people only over thrown pro Russian government and they are suffering now. Zelensky is a good leader from one angle only. But he put his own people and country to risk. It takes 20 years or more to come to the stage before war. Zelensky should have been neutral to West and made sure to go hand in hand with their biggest neighbour. Putin made sure he always have some reason to invade Ukraine.
Once Russia begins advance on Kyiv, there is no return for Russia. At that moment Zelensky becomes ready for accepting all demands including the surrender of lost territory, Russia may force to bring Kyiv down. Mariupol had less than 10% of troops in Kiev and more civilians got stuck and the damage Russia inflicted, shows the atrocity they will be planning on Kyiv.
