Military expert explained what prevented the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in three months

The Russian special operation in Ukraine has acquired the features of an all-European conflict, which in scale can be compared with the fighting on the Korean Peninsula in the 50s of the last century. So says military expert Vladislav Shurygin.

According to the analyst, the Ukrainian army, if necessary, can reach a strength of 2 million people, and the total front of the conflict is about 1600 km.

This is the Third World Proxy War, during which half of NATO is now fighting for Ukraine in the form of all kinds of “volunteer” formations, and most importantly, a full militarytechnical Support

Shurygin said in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda.

At the same time, the expert draws attention to miscalculations in the initial timing and course of the special operation. Thus, the advance of the troops in reality was not at all rapid, and in the liberated cities and villages of the east of Ukraine, no popular uprisings broke out in support of the RF Armed Forces. In some political circles, three months were allotted for the special operation.

In the West, many also believed that the Russian army would take Kyiv during the first ten days of hostilities. However, the situation has changed due to the active support of the Kyiv regime from outside.

Oddly enough, this three-month plan had its own logic. And today I am convinced that if the West and the United States had not turned on so powerfully, then by the end of May we would certainly have crushed the military machine of Ukraine

- the expert is sure.

    it is strange that the calculation was that the west would not turn on, the iksperds told us that there is a CPP for all cases, but here the most likely one was not taken into account, in addition, it turns out that the withdrawal of troops on the outskirts of Kyiv is not a gesture of goodwill at all, but a miscalculation of the military-political guides

      And not the only one, and alas, not the first, since 2014, the period of the "Russian Spring", a time when the nascent Nazi power could be crushed elementarily, and without much effort.

      Therefore, this opinion is not unreasonable:

      So says military expert Vladislav Shurygin.

      The West prepared the Armed Forces of Ukraine for an attack on the Donbass in advance, but with the plans of the Northern Military District of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, it prepared counteractions and reflections. That is why the beginning of the NMD is such a failure, because the United States, with many hundreds of instructors, prepared the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the NMD and the offensive of the RF Armed Forces, and knowing exactly the offensive plans, they took specific operational countermeasures. Therefore, the beginning of the NWO failed and failed in the main directions. It is not the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces that is the main culprit, but the SVR and the GRU, did not determine the influence of the United States and other NATO members on the Armed Forces of Ukraine, allowed the NVO strategy to leak to the enemy, did not take into account the propaganda impact on the citizens of Ukraine, who were already greeted by the RF Armed Forces by no means with flowers, etc ... Here is the first stage, now the protracted second stage, it's time to approach the third, preferably the final one, but the strength is definitely not enough ....

        Actually, it would be nice to blow up a nuclear charge over Kyiv in the stratosphere. An electromagnetic pulse would cause good damage to electronics and electrical facilities in the Kyiv area. At the same time, the "collective west" would know that we are ready for anything for the sake of victory.

    In this whole operation, the bad thing is that if the troops that were around Kyiv had initially gone to Kharkov and further south, then Kharkov would already be ours and the Donbass would be liberated. But our politicians decided to negotiate with the Kyiv ones and eventually crap. A simple soldier pays.

    Slowing down the pace of the military operation in Ukraine was a conscious decision, this is necessary to minimize civilian casualties, said Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, speaking at a meeting of defense ministers of the SCO member states, TASS reports.

    “At the same time, everything is being done to avoid casualties among civilians. Of course, this slows down the pace of the offensive, but we are doing it consciously," Shoigu said.

    He stressed that the Russian military in the liberated territories is systematically engaged in establishing a peaceful life - providing humanitarian assistance, restoring infrastructure and life support systems.

    The West, of course, has contributed to the delay, but not to the extent that it is blamed. In the last year or two, unpleasant facts about the activities of counterintelligence, up to banditry, have surfaced in the media. Just like in other departments of the department.

    CBO has been going on for 7 months. The first three months, a mistake in making a decision, retreated, it happens. The next three months, what is it? Search what to do? How to return to the golden times of the oligarchs and hucksters. They climbed in so that the NATO side does not let these oligarchs go, the huckster was seized by the fear that they are ready to give everything back, including Crimea. They would have surrendered, only fearfully, the Russian people can put them on a pitchfork. So they are rushing about, there is NATO, and here is the Russian pitchfork.

    It seems that the plan of the operation was not sufficiently prepared and corrected literally from the beginning of the operation, because intelligence information about the readiness and capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, about the mood in Ukrainian society was not objective enough, and this is putting it mildly. The director of the SVR should be a completely different person, and there are many questions for the GU (GRU) of the General Staff. At the initial stage, especially in the Kharkov and Kiev directions, the actions of the troops were of some kind of chaotic character with frequent changes in the direction of concentration of the main efforts, the organization of interaction with various branches of the military and the control of units and formations was not stable and timely. Now all these shortcomings and errors have been largely corrected, but it must also be taken into account that the enemy is numerous and practically does not conduct offensive and oncoming battles, but stubbornly defends using buildings in settlements

    It should be noted how competently, through various channels, the leadership of the Russian Federation was pumped up with misinformation, which it joyfully swallowed like a pike. Firstly, Medvedchuk was used "in the dark", who sent rosy forecasts of how our troops would be met with bread and salt up to the governors.
    Secondly, the skillfully organized "Lament of Yaroslavna" in the foreign and Ukrainian media, how bad things are in the Wehrmacht's coming out with weapons, ammunition, equipment and military equipment, what an untrained and disheveled personnel. And they frankly bought into this "Lament of Yaroslavna", because "respectable Western media" cannot lie so openly.
    Thirdly, apparently, both foreign intelligence and the GRU were able to sell "misinformation" that the level of training of the Wehrmacht's coming out is below the plinth, and all exercises led by Western instructors are a waste of time.
    Fourthly, they sold misinformation that only Galicia is permeated with Nazi ideology, and all other territories are sleeping and see themselves in the Russian world. And the population only pretends to accept the Nazi and Bandera ideologies.
    Fifthly, they were able to disinfluence the level of impregnation of the personnel of the Wehrmacht by the Nazi ideology.
    You can cite sixth and seventh, but these are just additional strokes.
    The bottom line is that they started the NWO with absolutely no idea what a trained, equipped and ideologically motivated enemy they would have to deal with. And for some reason, being confident that the West will get away with only the duty assurances of moral support and there will be no arms deliveries. We are also lucky that the military-industrial complex of the West has become so relaxed that it was not able to sharply increase the production of weapons. And this deprived the Wehrmacht of the opportunity to re-form and qualitatively equip a large group of troops on NATO territory. If the Wehrmacht had such an opportunity, the appearance of 8-10 new motorized infantry brigades at the front would be a huge hemorrhoids.
    Therefore, we had to feverishly change plans, or rather, improvise, since there were no other plans. And now we are ramming the fortified areas of the Wehrmacht's coming out in the forehead in the style of the "Winter War" of 1939-1940. or Rzhev meat grinder.

    The capture of Kyiv failed due to the fact that our troops, both at the beginning of the Second World War, as during the 8-day war with Georgia, did not have a reliable connection. Because of this, logistics collapsed, because it was not clear where it was necessary to carry cartridges, deliver fuel. About 1000 pieces of equipment were simply thrown on the roads. Probably and now with syavzyu the same problems. Therefore, we cannot go to great depths. No coverage, no boilers, just squeezing the enemy out of well-fortified positions.
