Russian military expert (and Putin critic) Sivkov: Ukraine went right into the trap; the entire AFU there will be destroyed
"The Russian Defense Ministry carried out a whole range of measures to mislead the Armed Forces of Ukraine, created the illusion that we have 'weak defense'...now the main task is to defeat the group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, military expert Konstantin Sivkov told VZGLYAD newspaper. On Saturday, the Defense Ministry announced the regrouping of troops in the areas of Balakleya and Izyum.

'Our military knew that an offensive was being prepared, so now the troops are regrouping to destroy the group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), which came to the areas of Balakleya and Izyum. It should be borne in mind that there are no fortified areas there, so the task of destroying the most combat-ready Ukrainian units will be solved quite successfully. This will take a few more days,' said Konstantin Sivkov, Doctor of Military Sciences.

The expert emphasized that over the past three days, as it became known from the Defense Ministry's report, more than 2 thousand Ukrainian and foreign militants, as well as over a hundred armored vehicles and artillery were destroyed. 'The Armed Forces of Ukraine suffer large daily losses. Now the main task is to defeat the advancing group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, deprive it of its potential, knock out equipment that is located not in cities and fortified areas, but in open spaces. The Armed Forces of Ukraine should not have the strength and means to conduct an effective defense,' the source explained.

Sivkov emphasizes that the diversionary maneuvers were carried out in order to 'pull the AFU strike group out of the fortified areas.' [less than 50%] [link to translated.turbopages.org (secure)]

Not sure that I agree, however they are definitely going to need to bring in reserves.

Ukraine has a 750,000 man army vs. Putin's 200,000 man army and now the NATO heavy artillery has arrived on the scene.

Putin gonna need another 300,000 troops at minimum to win this thing

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 38733927


The Russian Army (RA) knew the offensive was coming. AFU troop build up was obvious.

With the might of RA artillery, missiles and air power (tactical or strategic) the staging AFU brigades could have easily been annihilated from stand off range, but RA didn't do that. To me RA wanted and allowed the offensive to occur.

The supply of AFU comes in from North and had to cross a river. RA didn't destroy the bridges so AFU supply and troops may continue to pour in the pocket of battle.

There are known large RA army grouping in Northeast but they are not attacking.

More territories were vacated yesterday from South so AFU can move in to occupy.

The southern edge of the battle pocket is another river. AFU must cross that river to move further. Is that possible? Think about the 155mm shells, Iskanders, etc. nearby.

I personally see a RA psyop creating FUD about RA's defeat which encourages AFU to go all in with all their reserves into this battle pocket. Only then the northern river will be cut and pocket sealed. I see total annihilation of AFU grouping in coming days.

At that point we reach a dangerous moment because Zelensky and his Neocon handlers will not take such a massive defeat well and will probably double-down. Just look at how reckless they were assaulting and shelling the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station multiple times.

The goal of the SMO is not to "control Ukraine."

The goal is to "demilitarize" Ukraine. The Russian approach to that is to use 1/10 of their regular armed forces supporting DPR/LPR, Chechen and Wagner fighters who do the bulk of the fighting under the Russia flag. The modus operandi is maneuver warfare that draws the cowardly Kiev Junta forces out of their hiding spots in civilian centers and onto the open battlefield where they are systematically destroyed in cauldrons. The goal is not to hold territory but to systematically destroy the largest and best equipped land army in Europe. And 6 months into this conflict that is exactly what Russia is doing.

You are delusional, Russia lost THE major supply hub for the whole front. Most of their missiles and all of their artillery aren’t accurate..

NATO has been planning this with Ukraine for months, every step of the way, every new aid package was deliberately specific to fill the needs of the plan. Precision artillery and HIMARS have been pounding supply lines and stores for months. The west knows where every Russian unit is along with their capabilities. Not much moves without them knowing plus there are plenty of intel sources on the ground in occupied territory.

The west’s weapons are so much better, and their electronic equipment is far more advanced. Keeping communication and preventing communication is vital. The west trained Ukraine in combined arms territory tactics that have been developed specifically for defeating the type of troop deployment that Russia was using. Without complete air superiority Russia has little chance to stop fast moving groups with the defenses that had set up. This is coupled with the poor quality of the troops as all their top units are in Kershon. Russia should have won this SMO (war) quickly and decisively but they didn’t. They lost when they didn’t attack Kiev and had to retreat which bought time for Ukraine to bring in more weapons, recruit and train and plan. Russia has no choice but to mobilize a huge army (very costly in terms of men and material on top of politically), use nukes OR suffer defeat in Ukraine.

"The Russian Defense Ministry carried out a whole range of measures to mislead the Armed Forces of Ukraine, created the illusion that we have 'weak defense'...now the main task is to defeat the group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, military expert Konstantin Sivkov told VZGLYAD newspaper. On Saturday, the Defense Ministry announced the regrouping of troops in the areas of Balakleya and Izyum.

This will take a few more days,' said Konstantin Sivkov, Doctor of Military Sciences.

The expert emphasized that over the past three days, as it became known from the Defense Ministry's report, more than 2 thousand Ukrainian and foreign militants, as well as over a hundred armored vehicles and artillery were destroyed. 'The Armed Forces of Ukraine suffer large daily losses. Now the main task is to defeat the advancing group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, deprive it of its potential, knock out equipment that is located not in cities and fortified areas, but in open spaces. The Armed Forces of Ukraine should not have the strength and means to conduct an effective defense,' the source explained.

Sivkov emphasizes that the diversionary maneuvers were carried out in order to 'pull the AFU strike group out of the fortified areas.' [less than 50%] [link to translated.turbopages.org (secure)]

With the might of RA artillery, missiles and air power (tactical or strategic) the staging AFU brigades could have easily been annihilated from stand off range, but RA didn't do that. To me RA wanted and allowed the offensive to occur.

The supply of AFU comes in from North and had to cross a river. RA didn't destroy the bridges so AFU supply and troops may continue to pour in the pocket of battle.

There are known large RA army grouping in Northeast but they are not attacking.

More territories were vacated yesterday from South so AFU can move in to occupy.

The southern edge of the battle pocket is another river. AFU must cross that river to move further. Is that possible? Think about the 155mm shells, Iskanders, etc. nearby.

I personally see a RA psyop creating FUD about RA's defeat which encourages AFU to go all in with all their reserves into this battle pocket. Only then the northern river will be cut and pocket sealed. I see total annihilation of AFU grouping in coming days.

At that point we reach a dangerous moment because Zelensky and his Neocon handlers will not take such a massive defeat well and will probably double-down. Just look at how reckless they were assaulting and shelling the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station multiple times.

You are delusional, Russia lost THE major supply hub for the whole front. Most of their missiles and all of their artillery aren’t accurate..

NATO has been planning this with Ukraine for months, every step of the way, every new aid package was deliberately specific to fill the needs of the plan. Precision artillery and HIMARS have been pounding supply lines and stores for months. The west knows where every Russian unit is along with their capabilities. Not much moves without them knowing plus there are plenty of intel sources on the ground in occupied territory.

The west’s weapons are so much better, and their electronic equipment is far more advanced. Keeping communication and preventing communication is vital. The west trained Ukraine in combined arms territory tactics that have been developed specifically for defeating the type of troop deployment that Russia was using. Without complete air superiority Russia has little chance to stop fast moving groups with the defenses that had set up. This is coupled with the poor quality of the troops as all their top units are in Kershon. Russia should have won this SMO (war) quickly and decisively but they didn’t. They lost when they didn’t attack Kiev and had to retreat which bought time for Ukraine to bring in more weapons, recruit and train and plan. Russia has no choice but to mobilize a huge army (very costly in terms of men and material on top of politically), use nukes OR suffer defeat in Ukraine.

Forget logic with this guy. All he posts here is disinformation and propaganda from sources that are directed or paid by the Kremlin. I’ve seen some that were communist.

Things are going extraordinarily badly in Ukraine for Russia this week and the Russian army is in full retreat in some areas. All these shills can do is come up with explainers saying this is all according to plan and Putin, the master strategist, is playing 5D chess.

Not sure that I agree, however they are definitely going to need to bring in reserves.

Ukraine has a 750,000 man army vs. Putin's 200,000 man army and now the NATO heavy artillery has arrived on the scene.

Putin gonna need another 300,000 troops at minimum to win this thing
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79921326

Why don't you say Zelensky has a 750,000 man army? Russia is killing the nazis 50-1, they don't have soldiers left only hungry conscripts fighting so that Zelensky and his Western backers can get upvotes on Reddit.

All Ukraine has to do is not loose.

Russia has a lot of watches, but Ukraine has all the time and will eliminate the Russian invaders one at a time until the Russians give up and go home.

There is no hurry.
