Russian President Vladimir Putin may sustain the horrific death rate on his troops for another three months, experts have warned. According to a report from Mirror, It is believed the Russian military has resigned itself to ordering “mass suicidal attacks” on the Ukrainians, which achieve little for such a high cost in life.
A confidential assessment of Russia’s invasion claims Putin’s offensive is stuck in a rut created by shocking military weakness, failure, incompetence, death, and injury.
It comes amid rising Russian losses, claimed by Ukrainian military intelligence to have topped the bloody 150,000 milestone just a year since the full-scale invasion launched.
One western expert on Putin’s Russia warns of three scenarios, the worst being Russian military action threatening more of Russia’s neighbors with attacks.
The second scenario is a Ukrainian military breakthrough ending the occupation but this would demand a massive speeding up of arms delivery to Ukraine by the west.
And the third is that Putin’s invasion campaign will collapse following a “creeping Russian military stagnation and domestic loss of faith in Putin’s war.”
The latest assessment, which is provided to western governments, says: “Nowhere have the Russians been able to mass force densities to mount an effective offensive. has developed over the past few weeks is “more of the same”, i.e. grinding attrition stepped up.
“The Russians have so far proven unable to coordinate effectively a combined arms assault, or to provide adequate logistics support for a breakthrough.
“The Russian Army has not practiced this for 30 years and it appears to be beyond their ability. “The main ground forces’ tactic remains the near-suicidal mass infantry attack with inadequately trained troops under cover of heavy artillery.”
