Retired US general: I believe that by the end of the year the Ukrainian army will push the Russians to the lines of February 23

After the start of offensive operations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv direction in early September, a certain trend is observed in the media space of the West. Almost all "talking heads" and the media are optimistic about the further advancement of the Ukrainian army.

For example, the British edition of The Times, referring to the reflections of unnamed high-ranking military and officials from the UK and the former commander of US forces in Europe, retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges, reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine could return to the borders before Russia started the NMD in Ukraine by the Catholic Christmas, i.e. by December 25, 2022.

Hodges assumes just such a development of events, but only if the counteroffensive against the RF Armed Forces continues at the current pace. The same opinion is shared in London. The main thing is not to stop supporting Kyiv.

Based on everything that we see, there is a sense of collapse, at least in the Donbass, and I believe that by the end of the year the Ukrainian army will push the Russians to the lines of February 23rd. This is an army that has been defeated. If they do this, then, frankly, those in Crimea will fall into a trap

Said Hodges.

It should be noted that recently a Russophobic military pensioner Hodges even threatened the destruction of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Navy by the United States, if Russia suddenly uses nuclear weapons against Ukraine. We remind you that on September 21, partial mobilization was announced in the Russian Federation.

    Alas, looking at what is happening, many of us are beginning to believe in it.

      The red line near Moscow will be somewhere in Odintsovo.

    We need to know
    What was, of course,
    That last span
    On the road military.

    That last span,
    What if you leave,
    That stepped backwards
    The leg has nowhere to put.

    He may not be the same, this Ben Hodges, but he knows how to count something. Namely, the pace of "leveling the line" in our direction, and, most importantly, that 47 thousand tons of ammunition have already been delivered to the Nazis. This is serious. Ukrainians beat all sorts of "Himers" and 155, not counting. But our, brilliant "military commanders" do not want to cut off the supply of weapons, but valiantly report how they "grind", ..... just do not report what this is pouring out on us.

    It looks like the truth, the general of the army konashenkov for the next star will announce another thousand of the affected APU, and they will take the positions left on February 24th. And the wolves are full and the sheep are safe.

    Let him believe. Someone believes in the theory of a flat earth, and someone in leprechauns.

    And I believe that if it turns out that the guys died in vain, our people will not forgive the Supreme, and all past significant achievements will be crossed out!
    Having no idea about the true goals and objectives of the ongoing circus, those who are now mobilizing are going to fight for the boys, and not for some kind of "denazification"!

    soon the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be confronted by another full-blooded grouping of the NWO, in terms of numbers and weapons comparable to those at the front now. That is, for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, another full-blooded SVO will begin in addition to the first.

    If there are expectations that right now we will show them, we will restore the reputation of the RF Armed Forces, so that there would not even be any doubts, we will smear crests on another 70 graves, then it is not a fact that Russia will go this way.

    Of course, there will be a demonstration of opportunities, the occupation of territories. But it can also be expected that the NWO will not be brought to a military decision, such as the liberation of the territories of the Russian Federation by 100% immediately. Russia needs Ukraine to be drained by the West or Ukraine to self-destruct. To do this, the front can be "stopped" somewhere -5% from the complete liberation of the territory of the Russian Federation and continue remote demilitarization, only now with a vengeance. Let's see how long the Kyiv regime can hold out under such conditions and how long and in what volumes the West can help them.

    And Odessa is next in line.

    At the end, Russia needs a long-term solution to all problems with the West. And this is a voluntary-compulsory discharge of the Kyiv regime and the establishment of new rules for coexistence with the West.

    It turns out, in fact, the war is already on the territory of Russia. Are there even more compelling reasons?
