The Ukrainian army has only a few days left to continue the counteroffensive that has been going on since June, then the rainy season will begin in Ukraine, roads and paths will become muddy, and battle tanks and artillery can operate only in the most difficult conditions. Can be taken. , Military experts also agree: the success of the counter-attack is modest – but Ukrainian armed forces losses are reported at more than 40,000 soldiers.
The Russian army has also suffered dramatic losses of troops and weapons systems since June, but the Armed Forces Command in Moscow is reportedly forming a new army group of 100,000 men north of Kharkiv and Poltava. Is going to grow further. Beginning of winter. If Ukraine cannot throw sufficient reserves into this defensive battle, there is a risk that Russian forces will break into Kiev.
In this military and economic situation, which is actually not dramatic for the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin’s communications chief Dmitry Sergeyevich Peskov (55) gave an interview to the Russian TV station Channel One. Peskov: “Under the current circumstances, Moscow has no choice but to continue its military campaign.” And: “Russia is ready to find a diplomatic solution to the conflict in Ukraine, but there are no grounds to start such negotiations yet.”
Putin’s spokesman then reiterated: “The word ‘negotiations’ is increasingly being used in connection with the crisis in Ukraine.” Russian President Vladimir Putin consistently states the position of the Russian side, which has never abandoned the idea of such negotiations. , but claims there is currently no reason for them to resume.”
From this it becomes clear: the window of opportunity for ceasefire negotiations has long been closed – Ukraine is experiencing a bitter winter with a war waged using brutal methods.
And Europe’s taxpayers should be prepared for the fact that they will have to pay billions to support Ukraine for a long time – and also that energy and food prices will certainly not fall under these circumstances. After these statements in the Kremlin, it should become clear to all of Europe that living conditions are unlikely to improve in the next eight to twelve months.
