**This next video covers what is happening in not only Bakhmut, but Mariupol as well. It discusses Ukrainian strategy, the explosions at two Russian bases resulted in 300 Russian soldiers. Two more bases attacked overnight. The airport in Mariupol and Russian planes were destroyed earlier last week. **
Maritopol will be the jumping-off point for Ukrainian Army. Then they march on Mariupol.
New GLMRS ammo for the Himars on the front lines can easily reach Russian positions 50 miles away.
Ukraine blew up Russia’s use of the Mariupol airport, an ammo depot at that airport, two fuel depots, and one giant steel mill which Russia was using as a military base.
What Russia did to Bakhmut, Ukraine is about to do to Mariupol with tens of thousands of ill-equipped Russians hunkering down for dear life in this Kill Zone. Yes, Ukraine is losing forces, but not like the Russians. The Ukraine Resistance and Military is growing stronger by the day as the ANKA anchor is always saying in the videos.
(Late edit addition.)
The Ukrainians are playing major league hardball. The blue and gold forces are not stopping until they take all of Crimea, and these fearless Ukraine incursions into Maritopol, Mariupol, Kherson (Ukraine in full control now in Kherson), and Bakhmut are setting the stage for just that. Add all the new military hardware making its way to the Eastern Front, and as XMFRob in this thread below suggests Prigozin could be a victim of falling from a balcony, or, as Rob suggested, he will be kept alive to blame as the fall guy - which would make sense if Putin has even a scintella of sense left in his brain.
One more late edit: Putin’s health has been discussed front and center on youtube videos from the West. I’ll say this: if Putin IS taking chemo for a cancer, there’s no way in hell he can be trusted to remember things he was just told. It’s one of the symptoms of Cancer Chemo: short-term memory and short-term attention loss.
This is the worst symptom I fight, not the pain. I am making a concerted effort to read voraciously and look up things a 2nd or 3rd time and then write my thoughts in a journal. Keeping my brain sharp and stress-free is my main focus. I don’t see how Putin can do this IF he has cancer chemo sluicing through his innards.
Putin looks horrible, emaciated, and very weak in his gait and gestures. The few times I see him in videos these days(public appearances are evaporating quickly as losses mount in Ukraine) the more I see a cornered, tired, stinkin’ thinkin’ tyrant lose his own marbles to the creeping panic which haunts him and Russia. Yeah, he most definitely has a major illness his doctors don’t want the public to know about.
A strongman must give that image of strength.
