Japanese General Predicted the Imminent Defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
According to Yoshiaki Yano, armed actions in Ukraine are nearing completion. The West is trying to push Kiev to peace talks, because it is no longer able to pump up the Armed Forces of Ukraine with weapons.
The Ukrainian army has suffered huge losses and is on the verge of collapse. Soon the Russians will take Artemovsk, and by August they will completely defeat the enemy, Yano is sure.
“In this context, the settlement of the Ukrainian conflict and a ceasefire even before an “explosive” situation arises becomes a vital issue for the security of the whole world,” Yano concluded.

The war is coming to an end
There are signs that the end of the war in Ukraine, which has been going on for more than a year, is nearing its end. Ukraine is likely to lose.
We will explore the background and analyze future trends and impacts.
Bahmut on the brink of fall
Bakhmut, once a city with a population of 70,000 and the hub of the eastern Donbass transportation network, has been fortifying the entire city since 2014 with the support of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).
A solid concrete fortress was built in the city, with a large stockpile of weapons and ammunition, tanks at key points, and various anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles deployed within the cover. There were heavy minefields and anti-tank obstacles.
The Russian army (hereafter referred to as the “Russian Army”) began its offensive in May 2022, three months after the start of the war, and since then, battles have continued in Bakhmut for about nine months.
The Russian army will first thoroughly occupy the Ukrainian military positions with long-range stand-off missiles, rocket artillery, artillery, etc. from outside the range of anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles and rocket artillery. It employs a “attrition strategy” to deplete the U.S. military’s personnel and equipment, destroying and, if necessary, sacrificing territory and reducing the occupied territories.
The attrition strategy was supported by real-time target information from a variety of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems, including drones, satellite imagery, radar ratings, and battlefield scout reports, and linked to command Command and control, information processing, and decision-making systems are used to allocate targets to offensive weapons and give orders to attack. Cycle.
Such a cycle consisting of ISR, command and control functions, and cross-domain firepower is covered by a dense anti-aircraft missile network and air superiority. made against the target.
Douglas McGregor, a retired U.S. Army Colonel and Advisor to the U.S. Department of Defense during the Donald Trump administration, states that damage from land-to-surface missiles, ground-based rocket artillery and artillery launched from such land, sea and air launch vehicles is about the same as troop attrition. We estimate it to be as high as 75%.
A more intense attritional battle similar to the Battle of Verdun during World War I, the “meat-puller”, where heavy concentrated fire was poured against a fortified trench position and caused heavy attrition. , has been waged on the battlefields of Bahmut.
The Russian army is now 2.8 kilometers away from a complete encirclement at Bakhmut ( February 25, 2023 as of February 25, 2023 ).
Bahamut’s army is withdrawing to avoid encirclement, but some of the army are still barricading themselves in the city and continuing their resistance.
The Russian army has concentrated fire on the remaining units of the U.S. Army with various missiles, artillery, and artillery mounted on armored fighting vehicles, and has taken control of buildings in the U.S. military positions.
Russian tanks and other vehicles continue to advance while suppressing enemy targets on their advance path (Hindustan Times, February 13 & February 22, 2023 as of February 26, 2023).
As the resistance of the U.S. forces has weakened, the Russian army appears to be shifting its focus to maneuver warfare.
Under siege, U.S. soldiers complained that their supplies had been cut off and organized fighting was becoming difficult.
The U.S. Army is attempting to rebuild its defenses along the river line between the current camps north and south of Bakhmut and the Slavyansk and Karamatorsk camps, but the lack of deployed troops makes it difficult to stop the Russian forces (HistoryLegends, February 11, 2023 as of February 27, 2023).
