This video describes the military situation in Ukraine on the 3rd of September 2023
Here’s what others had to say:
For anyone believing Zelensky’s units are making progress in Rabotyne, it’s worth looking at the height map and compare what Ukrainians presumably captured. Almost all is low ground and under direct fire of Russian artilery from everywhere around. Russians have them pretty much where they want them, and the prospects of making further serious break through from the Kyiv forces are grim to say the least. Yesterday Prof. Mearsheimer published an article on substack titled “Bound to Lose” about the current state of affairs of the so heavily publicized counteroffensive. It put historical context on how Russian defense is organized, and then gives very sobering view on where Zelensky’s forces stand and what their future options are. Much of the analysis is through the lens of statements given by western officials. Zelensky’s chances of winning this war are practically non-existent. He is bound to indefinitely beg his western owners for weapons, money and even basic living necessities to keep his corrupt illegitimate regime afloat.
Interview of a Polish humanitarian worker in the ukraine published by Wirtualna Polska (Polish newspaper) on August 30th:
“The human losses of the Ukrainian side are enormous. Western technology burns like matches. It’s much worse than you think.
“I counted the graves in Lviv. In the old part of the cemetery there are about 100 graves, in the new part there are more than 600. In villages, this proportion is vastly different. As I pass, I see cemeteries along the streets. Up to 10 new graves. There are flags near each of them, they are easy to recognize. In Kharkov there are more than two thousand graves. These losses can no longer be hidden.
“[In this situation at the front, with ever-increasing losses, is there anyone else willing to defend their homeland?] No. They are looking for them on the streets. In Lviv there are “seizures”, people are taken from buildings, from bars. Recently I witnessed such a situation at the bus station in Lviv. Five policemen stood and checked everyone who wanted to leave Lviv. Eight people were arrested. Many reasons for the current situation with mobilization originate in Bakhmut. It was such a drain, such a meat grinder that there is no one else to fight.
“How do the Ukrainians fighting at the front relate to the Russian defense system? “They’re terrified,” Wysocki says shortly. – They know that the Russian army has already learned everything and made up for any delays, they are carefully prepared.”
Ukraine will lose this Second Sacred War, it’s inevitable! Glory to Russia and all the Russian Armed Forces!
Ukraine announced medical exemptions will be canceled for many conditions, including HIV, hepatitis, diabetes, tuberculosis, anxiety/PTSD, and more. Also a bill submitted to start conscripting 17 year olds. Next will be women…. Military exemption also canceled for university students seeking 2nd degrees. Plus talk of extraditing military age men back from Europe.
Its sick that ukraine is so blind. Russia will never stop. Peace is there only opption.
In an interview with a Ukrainian soldier, captured in the Zaporizha front, he said that all the soldiers who go to the front are given amphetamine pills, they take away the fear and do not feel pain when hit. This explains the persistence in throwing oneself against death.
Watching the Lyman offensive is like watching molasses go long up hill. The Numerical superiority should be making a huge difference but I don’t believe we are getting a full accounting of what is really going on.
“the greatest counter offensive operation” I read in a military manual that “counter offensive” lasts maximum 3 weeks. The way I understand it, Ukraine already lost the war. Oh, this just in: Zelensky just dismissed his “greatest defense minister”…
Wow ! Impressive ukraine success !!! In 90 days of “offensive” ukraine gained 2x2km2 in Grey Zone at the cost of 52 000 ukraine troops KIA and 65% of NATO warcrafts destroyed by Russia. Very impressive result.
With so many losses on Ukranians side during this offensive western leadership wanted Ukraine to understand they can never win this war no matter what weapon they get . Only way is Agree for peace.
Russian-made combat training aircraft Yak-130 were delivered to Iran, according to Russian media, which I will talk about on my channel too, because these aircraft are used to train pilots for Russian Su-30 and Su-35 fighters, which are also likely to appear in the armed forces of Iran in the near future..
The ways of the Ukrainian general staff are inscrutable. Ukrainian reserves are dwindling, there is hardly any time to build on the capture of Kliischevka, the operations there don´t support the offensive in the south in any way – and yet Kiev still pours more men and equipment into the attacks around Bakhmut. This operation did hardly serve any strategic purpose and can defenitely not do it anymore still it is continued to capturing a piece of territory for the sake of capturing it. Absolutely stunning.
always your professionalism and analysis is appreciate . coherence, unbiased, balance and excellent pronunciation of all this settlements, town and city in all this sphere and contact lines.. since this SMO you have been on top of the list of all this so called military analytic.. with out being a military expert will explanation goes beyond imagination…
Thank you, Dima! There is a small problem with the information about Kleshcheevka. That video with the bombing is near this locality, and was aimed at eliminating some groups of Ukrainian soldiers who were defending the respective area. On the other hand, no Russian channel talks about such a thing, even those that have the habit of being very critical in certain situations. But, who knows, I personally prefer to wait a few days to find out real information. See Rabotino, the Russians are not in the town, but at the same time the Ukrainians do not have 100 percent control either. Now everyone in mass media is concerned about two things, the dismissal of Ratsnikov from the position of Minister of Defense in Ukraine and … the unexpected appearance of metro stations in … Tokmack, the first station being Rabotino, with a platform on the left side….
Areas which are under heavy and fully artillery control of Russian side, means that even there aren’t Russian solders at the moment, the area IS under full Russian control. We can’t say that Klisheevka (or any other small destroyed village is under Ukrainian control, if there aren’t any Ukrainians alive after their arrival in. TOS-rocket systems are extremely deadly.
Look at those shockwaves from those FAB-500 hits. Everyone has their eardrums blown out and lungs collapsed out to 700 meters. Su-34 lobs them from 40 MILES away and they land on the exact treeline the drone targeted. How dafuk can you survive that?
