Brian Berletic on the Ukraine
I’m posting this for a specific reason. During the last few weeks I expressed my own doubt that Russia will in short order go over to a winter offensive and major actions in the Ukraine. Most analysts and commentators were keenly awaiting ‘Russia’s major offensive’. Now, I am not saying a major offensive will not occur at some time in the future. I just question the current feeling in the web spheres, both from Russian supporters and from western talking heads that a major winter offensive is on the cards.
Here is the summary of Brian’s new video. Take a look at his last point and he is a sharp observer. Russia is busy letting the west walk into a brick wall, time and time again. This is attrition and not the usual kind of war for territory. Enjoy!
NEW VIDEO: Russian Missile Strikes, New Defenses, & Fighting into 2023
▪️Russia conducts what may be the largest missile strike so far during the special military operation;
▪️ Ukraine’s power grid continues to be degraded;
▪️ Fighting continues around Bakhmut;
▪️Western analysts insist Russian fighting around Bakhmut is “senseless” but it suits Russia’s strategy of attrition;
▪️Russia is also building extensive defensive structures across the line of contact;
▪️These lines force Ukrainian offensive troops to spend more time in well-prepared fields of fire resulting in major casualties;
▪️Russia appears to be settling into a protracted war of attrition while protecting its lines with these major defensive works.
