Let’s examine the consequences of tactical success within the strategic context
In the land of Western and Ukrainian media spaces, supported by corporate institutional power, there is often talk of how Russian successes don’t mean much. They say that Ukrainians are bleeding Russia of munitions and manpower while luring Russian forces into traps and such. They say that once NATO weapons and training are delivered to Ukraine, the tide will surely turn upon the weight of Western power and expertise. They also downplay the implications of the success of Russian forces in the Donbass, saying that it’s only a few small cities, while Russia can’t even take a single major city. How do these opinions hold up to the scrutiny of strategic military analysis? The results of such analysis bear great fruit against such notions propagated on behalf of the Ukrainian regime.
