Ukraine war direction

The Russians have now settled on a strategy to bring the Ukrainian political establishment down: Keep pounding energy infrastructure to the point where the country becomes dysfunctional, in a modern sense.

And do it without losing a lot of Russian military personnel. The strategy adopted by the Russian army in Kherson makes perfect sense, moving across the river and posing a constant direct threat to the city’s population.

Looking at the map, Russian forces can be re-supplied from Russian controlled territory to the south, with the Dnipro River as an easily defendable barrier to the north.

This war will not be over for a long time because it is really a conflict between two empires, not as depicted in the Western media as a regional war between a small innocent nation and a big bully.

The Ukrainian people have become the meat in the sandwich and men between 18 and 60 years old are forced to serve under martial law enacted by the Kyiv government.
