White House: Putin used only a small part of his huge army in Ukraine


Russia has very powerful armed forces that can be used in Ukraine and, if necessary, in other regions of the world. John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the White House National Security Council, expressed this point of view.


According to the US military, the Russian army maintains a high level of combat capability, despite "many problems."

Mr. Putin still has an extremely large military potential at his disposal, which can be used not only in Ukraine, but also potentially elsewhere.

Kirby emphasized during the briefing.

At the same time, the Russian army is currently able to do without mobilization. This, in particular, was stated the day before by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the calls of a number of politicians and deputies to the announcement of mobilization.

Meanwhile, despite the fact that Russia has a strong army, Kyiv is in no hurry to lay down its arms and enter into negotiations with Moscow. In this regard, many US citizens reacted extremely negatively to an interview with Vladimir Zelensky on CNN, in which the Ukrainian president refuses to enter into a dialogue with the Russian side. American viewers were outraged that Zelensky did not protect the lives of Ukrainians, while being a puppet of Washington.

    Well, they announced a few years ago that the United States would fight in Ukraine with Russia to the last Ukrainian. The Ukrainians themselves are to blame for bringing their country to such a subordinate state.

    Plans to quickly withdraw the Russian Federation from the alliance with the PRC are important to Washington (G. Kisinger's project), but the confrontation in Ukraine is getting in the way. So they are inclining the "green" to negotiations and reconciliation, then the second phase of inclining the Russian Federation and moving away from the PRC will begin ... With our collaborators on a leash from the West (money, families, real estate), the plan will work, Russian citizens, as always, are in flight and in poverty, this is when plundered by a bunch of countless general civil (state) values ​​- hydrocarbons and so on ...

    It's just that John Kirby decided to support us. It is not good for the Russians to be blown away so quickly and stop killing each other with crests. You look, soon they will throw in satellite information, so that it would be easier for us to fight, otherwise Iranian drones either got stuck on the way, or flew in without cameras.

    destroy bridges across the Dnieper, strike at decision-making centers, turn off the power to Ukraine, all this will certainly change the situation, but not the fact that it will be for the better.

    All this will only show Russia's weakness, despair.

    The demonstration from the TPP was just right. Russia has shown that in reality it's just a cat playing with a mouse, pick it up with its claw, it flounders, throws it back to the ground. The mouse is really not simple, rabid .. instead of pretending to be dead or running away, it furiously rushes at the cat. Hence the big suspicion that this is actually a rat! The cat was slightly mistaken in its estimates, but this does not change the essence.

    It is the non-use of all these measures that demonstrates confidence and calmness. This gives control of the situation, because everything else is an escalation and a completely different dynamics of the conflict.

    All these measures are cards in the deck that Russia can use if the need arises. Now there is clearly no such need.

    When people die, this is not a game of cat and mouse, this is a failure .. And what if the Ukrofascists take Belgrade? At least for a while - what kind of games are these cat and mouse games? No - the simplest explanation is the correct one. This is the failure of our military leadership

    This is just escalating the situation for the Americans. If he said that the Russian army is weak, then it will be harder to justify the huge expenses for military aid to Khokhls
