FT: Two scenarios of the Russian-Ukrainian war, in which Kiev will be defeated


Western anti-Soviet Russophobes continue to actively talk about the "Russian invasion of Ukrainian soil." British newspaper Financial Times, referring to American "experts", cited two "existing" scenarios of the Russian-Ukrainian war, in which Kiev will suffer a crushing defeat from Moscow.


According to the "researcher" Dara Massikot from the "non-governmental and non-profit" organization RAND (USA), both options do not bode well for Ukraine. So, according to the first scenario, the Russian Federation will inflict pinpoint airstrikes on Ukraine, destroying military facilities and infrastructure.

The air defense / missile defense system at the disposal of the Armed Forces will not be able to cope with the “load” and will not be able to reflect the “aggression”. Following the bombers, a flurry of various missile weapons will fall on Ukraine, and then long-range cannon and rocket artillery and heavy flamethrowers will be used, destroying the Ukrainian army in the border zone. She stressed that the strike would have colossal negative consequences for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

According to the second scenario, a large-scale "invasion" of Russian troops into Ukraine will begin. But this scenario is still considered less likely, since the above-described blow should be enough. In addition, Moscow will have to use much more forces and means, the risk of significant losses of attacking units will increase and serious problems with the Western community will arise.

The publication notes that analyst Rob Lee of the Institute for Foreign Studies policy in Philadelphia has its own point of view on this matter. He is confident that the scale of the "attack" depends on how soon Kiev capitulates to Moscow.

Ukraine can lose tens of thousands of people in a couple of days. They (the Russians - ed.) Can significantly reduce the Ukrainian military potential. But will this be enough for Ukraine to admit defeat?

- He explained.

We remind you that over the past six years, the West has arranged a bacchanalia in the information space of the planet at least twice a year, convincing the world community of the “predatory” aspirations of the giant “authoritarian” Russia in relation to small and defenseless, but extremely “democratic” Ukraine. At the same time, Moscow has repeatedly denied these unsubstantiated accusations.

    The Kremlin's indecisive (cowardly) actions in 2014 led to such scenarios. Then Ukraine could be taken with models of machines. You wouldn't have to shoot at all. Now it's different. And after a while it will be impossible at all.
    How many mistakes have the Russian authorities already made and will probably still make in relation to Ukraine? The main ones are; this, the recognition of the regime in Kiev, the continued support for this regime.
    Everything will end with NATO missiles near Kharkov. And this is the beginning of the end. The West is furiously torn to the borders of the Russian Federation. We must stop now.
    I am sure that if Novorossia had now taken and cut off Ukraine from the sea, from the mouth of the Danube, Russia would have dealt a crushing blow to the aggressive policy of the West. It's like a hard hit in the groin of a brutal bandit. It will be possible to add in the right places (Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernigov).
    Everything will fall into place. No one will dare to approach the borders of Russia. There will be costs. But how else to become a power that is reckoned with ?!

      Move the capital beyond the Urals. The flight time will immediately increase significantly. And the wolves will be fed, and the sheep are safe. And finally, the new capital will get rid of guests from the south. I do not think that they will want to live in the northern Trans-Urals.

      Do you think that the United States did not know this?

      Well done. Absolute indifference in 2014. There is a war, people are dying, and the Russian leadership is silent. Mariupol was presented, etc.

    First, missiles, and only then aviation.

    These analysts are stupid ... the Russian Federation will not blow with the UA ... the point is ... so that later NATO will stink even more ... only the defeat of this super squid in the form of NATO will bring peace of 100 liters ... what does the GDP statement see ... get back to the previous NATO positions ... and also bloodlessly without destroying the infrastructure .. as RUSSIA did it .. and now threatens the idiots with diplomatic methods .. enough of the greedy .. yes it hurts .. opposite .. but another option is war .. every For 100 years, the West has brought democracy to RUSSIA .. gets a face and calms down ..

    Ukraine is not a thing to take. She must come herself. Whoever wanted in 2014 came or at least went to Russia. The rest are waiting for the time.

    Odessa also wanted (House of Trade Unions). What can ordinary citizens do against armed Nazis with the support of the government? In Simferopol, too, nothing would have happened without the "little green men".
    Even simply by becoming on the roadstead of the Odessa port, the Black Sea Fleet would provide support to the residents of the city. But no. Nothing!

    Nonsense! Drop a hundred parachutists to Kiev. In the morning it will already be possible to declare that the government has changed, as in Malinovka.

    ... Why does the Russian Federation need a territory whose population is oriented towards the West?
    ... Isn't it more logical to reorient it towards yourself, developing at an accelerated pace on the Chinese model?

    Well, we will win. What's next? Cancel elections?
    It is necessary to fight in the field of people's living standards, and not with Ukraine, with the West.

    Moscow must publicly at the UN and in bilateral relations with the United States and other countries over and over again display the true image of Ukraine.
    In particular, it is necessary to convene the UN Security Council and highlight the torchlight processions of the Natsiks and the growing statements about territorial claims against the Russian Federation. This could seriously affect both international relations and the actions of the UK authorities.

    The fact that combat scenarios are being developed is unambiguous. We can only speculate. It is only in the United States that everyone knows exactly when they will attack, by what forces ... As if the Russian Ministry of Defense is reporting to them. As for the hostilities, they will most likely deliver powerful blows to the nationalist battalions, because it is no secret that this is the mainstay of the Bandera regime. Target tracking space satellites will play an important role. Most likely the war will be non-contact. And local militias will already be cleaning the territory, especially in the East of Ukraine. They fiercely hate the current regime in Kiev. This applies not only to Donbass, but also to Odessa, Kharkov, Nikolaev ... I think everything about everything will take a week. As for the rest of the troops of Ukraine, the main thing is to demoralize them ... For this, the destruction of groups like Azov, Aydar ... must be tough. What would others understand to joke in the event of resistance, Russia will not.
