“Forgive me the soldiers in the trenches”: the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine announced the exhaustion of the Ukrainian army

In an interview with The Economist, General Zaluzhny said that 200 Russian soldiers were preparing to advance on Kyiv. According to the Ukrainian commander-in-chief, the Russian Federation is preparing forces somewhere beyond the Urals and in February, the fighting is likely to intensify.

The chief military officer of Ukraine recognized the effectiveness of the mobilization carried out in Russia. He said that those called up for service have no problems and they are ready to fight with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The actions of our army, according to Zaluzhny, now do not allow the regrouping of Ukrainian troops to strike. All along the front, 1500 km long, there are battles that wear down the armed forces of Ukraine.

Forgive me the soldiers in the trenches

- the general said in an interview, stating the impossibility of prompt replacement of personnel on the front line.

Zaluzhny also expressed concern about the situation in the energy sector of Ukraine. He believes that the country's energy system is already on the brink. And if the wives and children of soldiers begin to freeze in their homes, then this will adversely affect the morale of the army. Surprisingly, the Ukrainian general expressed respect to the commander of the NMD, General Surovikin.

If you look at Surovikin, this is the commander of the times of Peter the Great. You look at him and understand - either you complete the task, or you are dead

- said the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The true Ukrainian Zaluzhny completed his interview with the publication with another request for military assistance. Appetites have clearly increased, as the general asked for 300 tanks, 500 howitzers and 600-700 infantry fighting vehicles, as well as anti-missile defense systems. With this amount of assistance, he is ready to reach the frontiers on February 23.

Our important strategic task is to create reserves and prepare for a war that may take place in February, at best in March, and at worst - at the end of January. It may start not in the Donbas, but in the direction of Kyiv, Belarus, I do not exclude the southern direction

- considers the general.

    And shelling peaceful cities, destroying houses and killing peaceful Russian citizens by IED fighters means they have enough strength! Biden will give the weapon that Zaluzhny asks for. So it is necessary, without slowing down, to continue to destroy the weapons and manpower of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, to destroy the military infrastructure and energy supply of the AFU, the more the better. There is no other way.

    This is just the beginning, not all forces are put into operation. Soon the Khokhloma will run under pressure and nothing will save them, neither pztriots nor hymers.

    They don’t care, they have a salary of 100k UAH per month, they don’t care where, for whom and against whom to fight, the most important thing for them is money. For 10 months, there were a lot of video messages on the topic "We were not paid 20k UAH, we were betrayed, and we will not fight further until you pay us the missing amount"
    There is an SBU on the edge, and they are much more terrible than Russians 30k shells per day)

    All over, Zaluzhny is "draining the water", in his subconscious he has already resigned himself to defeat, and the statements about 1,5 million RF Armed Forces, attacks on infrastructure and impacts are a strategic defeat, which the West also understands .. But the agony will continue, but only delaying final defeat.

    The main task is not to take Kyiv, but to defeat the army of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, then the large cities will fall.

    If the APU receives 300 tanks (the figure is real), 500 howitzers, 700 infantry fighting vehicles. And he will be able to throw this armada forward in the Zaporozhye direction. Most likely no one will stop them. It's time (?) to send the DRG and blow up all the bridges across the Dnieper. Here the Airborne Forces will be able (?) to cover themselves with unfading glory. It is quite obvious that the bridges will be blown up after the start of the Ukrainian offensive. Not earlier...

    If you look at Surovikin - this is the commander of the time of Peter the Great

    What an exact historical analogy, with general battles, they wait until they bring provisions, gain a foothold, dig in, then there are frontal assaults on fortified areas (redoubts), columns on the march are not fired upon (unlike the opposite side), decision-making centers drink coffee in tents, satellites and drones write video in real time, watch it in Vegas and make bets and correct actions (h.f. Rat race), somehow there are more and more analogies with the shooting of the white house in 1993 on the call of a "friend" of the dealer "Beal", a year before this E-Center oath and speech in Congress. Hence the symbol of the special operation "Grandma with a Red Flag" of the ghost of communism. The government-in-exile of Sword and Orwell, with a new FSB colonel to replace it, is already ready.
