What is the reason Russia has failed to fulfill its military objectives after fighting for a month in Ukraine? Why is the Russian Army not the second-largest in the world?
It is possible to write books about it for many reasons. The first is the misestimation of Ukraine’s resistance, and complete disregard for its will to resist; poor military preparation, operational plans, inept coordination, overloaded command structures; insufficient forces.
To regain the military initiative and stop the conflict from getting worse, will President Vladimir Putin resort the nuclear and biological weapons?
Russia can use chemical weapons against heavily defended cities, and especially in false flag operations to discredit Ukraine. I don’t believe he could protect his forces from biological weapons. Russian military medical personnel are also not very good. This would make their ground operations in the Ukrainian war zone more vulnerable.
It is a lot. Many have already benefited from the West’s supply of anti-tank and other air defense weapons. Ukraine’s only hope is the West. Ukraine is able to provide mobile defenses that are not limited to infantry. Ukrainian soldiers require resupply in armored and tank vehicles, artillery, and ammunition. We can make progress here, I hope.
We are witnessing a war between Moscow and Kyiv. Do you think this war of attrition could last for long?
But not yet. It is possible to expect another round of attacks from the Russians as they reorganize and regroup. Particularly in eastern Ukraine.
