Ever since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, the mainstream Western media has been pushing an ongoing disinformation campaign to have us believe that Russia is not succeeding, and Ukraine could win “if only we give them more support”. This was, and is, in direct contradiction to the actual facts on the ground; a highly competent and methodical operation by the Russians and the LPR/DPR armed forces. That operation is now paying the expected dividends, with the surrender of the 2,000+ troops surrounded in the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol and now the increasing collapse of the Donbass front. The latter has been resulting in, and will continue to result in, the death and capture of tens of thousands of the best Ukrainian troops and the destruction of the Ukrainian army as an effective fighting force. Ukraine is already running out of able-bodied men given their losses and the extensive emigration of young men in the years prior to the conflict; as shown by the increasingly middle-aged, little-trained, and badly armed Ukrainian soldiers found at the front line. Growing numbers of these are refusing to fight, preferring surrender or mutiny to a pointless death. The current Phase 2 of the Russian operation, the clearing of the Luhansk and Donetsk people’s republics together with a land bridge to Crimea will be finished most probably within weeks. Then we may expect a Phase 3, to clear the rest of the “Russian” Ukraine that resisted the Western-driven right-wing coup of 2014; the Odessa and Kharkiv regions that like the others will never return to Ukrainian sovereignty. With the core of the Ukrainian army already destroyed, and without the benefit of eight years to build the defensive fortifications of the Donbass, the next Ukrainian debacle may be significantly faster in coming. After that only the Russians know, but their objectives have been very clearly stated and their resoluteness in achieving those objectives displayed. If the capture of the whole of Ukraine is necessary, it will be carried out.
