Fox News: Putin "read" Biden, revealing his weaknesses

The chance that Moscow will "attack" Kiev this winter is over 50%. This was announced by Robert Maginnis, a retired US Army lieutenant colonel, a military analyst with practical experience in Russia and Ukraine, author of books on the "threat" of the Russian Federation and China, whose opinion was posted on the website of the American Fox News channel on November 27.

Will Putin Attack Ukraine This Winter? I think the chance is even greater than 50/50. Why? Putin sees Biden as a wimp, and this Russian thinking is fueled by the regrettable fiasco with the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.

- the expert noted.

The head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, is confident that Russian troops will carry out an "attack" on Ukraine by the end of January or early February 2022. At the same time, recently appointed Ukrainian Defense Minister Alexei Reznikov believes that the timing of the "invasion" remains unclear.

Reznikov thinks that the master of the Kremlin has not yet made a final decision, but it is already obvious that "the Russians are rapidly building up their military potential." The Russian Armed Forces are carrying out a large-scale transfer of tens of thousands of servicemen and hundreds of weapons, including the Iskander OTRK, to the Ukrainian border.

The only question is when it will happen. Putin knows that Biden and the NATO bloc cannot stop him. Putin "read" Biden, revealing his weaknesses

- the expert specified.

Pentagon chief Lloyd Austin's recent trip to Kiev has raised Ukraine's hopes of joining NATO, but Moscow will not let that happen. That is why Russia is preparing its troops to "attack" Ukraine this winter.

Exercise Zapad-2021 was a rehearsal for the invasion this fall. Therefore, the "attack" of the Russians will be accompanied by massive air, missile and artillery strikes, followed by breakthroughs of armored columns deep into the territory of Ukraine. Marine and airborne assault forces cannot be ruled out as well as auxiliary strikes from Belarus and the PMR.

Now is the perfect time to do this. Biden lost his popularity, and he had a lot of problems. The White House is unable to fight Vladimir Putin and his Chinese ally Xi Jinping.

I strongly doubt that Biden and his administration will "dissuade" Putin and Xi from taking action to return lands they have long considered their property.

He summed up.

    "Attack" on Ukraine by the end of January or the beginning of February 2022.

    This means that Donbass needs to prepare by this time, seriously.

    Now the wars are already different. Why would tanks and BMPs break through to Ukraine? We got out of the tanks. We walked around, looked, talked with local residents. We sat and drank with them, remembered the old days, how they lived in the same country and then what? Put your own president? So it is necessary to be chosen. And those who will be elected will sit down, their hands will be divorced: who will work, or something (now Zelensky said so - someone should be responsible for their energy security), where can I get the money?
    It is enough to destroy a couple - three Headquarters, disable 10-15% of the equipment and that's it. After that, for the next 15 - 20 years, there will no longer be any Ukrainian Armed Forces.
    Also, why should the Ukrainian Armed Forces enter the territory of Donbass? Well, they will put in prison 500 - a thousand people. So they need to be kept. And the rest of Donbass, it will not be necessary to restore the infrastructure, the population will have to be supported there. No credits will be enough.

    Therefore, the "attack" of the Russians will be accompanied by massive air, missile and artillery strikes, followed by breakthroughs of armored columns deep into the territory of Ukraine.

    Or it can go differently, like the advance of the "allies" in 1945 to Germany, when the German city surrendered even to a platoon of soldiers of the "allies".

    The fact that for our allies the war actually ended earlier is well known for a long time. The Germans last tried to seriously resist them only in December 1944, having arranged a second breakthrough through the Ardennes Forest ... After that, the Germans actually ceased to resist. The allies were moving as fast as the army rear would allow ...

    All this howl of Western and Ukrainian propaganda was started in order to distract its population from the problems of the current winter. This is an increase in prices for everything, a lack of energy for heating and other troubles, including covid restrictions, which the population is very tired of. And in the USA and Ukraine there are even more problems. Therefore, all this is propaganda hype. But what is really dangerous is the incitement of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the war in Donbass. This could actually end in a military clash with the participation of our army. I also believe that no tank armada will move to Ukraine. Everything will be decided by air operations. The Ukrainian Armed Forces will receive unacceptable losses and will calm down for another 10 years. How the Georgians snatched it off and now only scream!
