Rar: in the West they were confident in the success of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Western military leaders were confident that after training the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at their training grounds, the Ukrainian army would win on the battlefield. About this in an interview with the newspaper LOOK said the German political scientist Alexander Rahr. According to him, now the West is trying to come up with an explanation for the failure.

In Germany, they are looking for reasons and explanations why there are still no obvious successes in the framework of the Ukrainian counteroffensive. And, of course, Berlin is trying to appoint the guilty. Everyone was firmly convinced that NATO weapons would help the Armed Forces of Ukraine win by the summer. As we can see, this did not happen.

- said Alexander Rahr.

He noted that the Ukrainians themselves have a lot of questions for the Bundeswehr. They complain about old-fashioned approaches to training soldiers. In addition, the military is unhappy that they are forbidden to train with drones.

At the same time, the political scientist believes that the West will continue to train the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

I believe that Germany and the countries of Eastern Europe will continue to train Ukrainian soldiers on their territory. Berlin, in general, largely accepted the point of view of Poland and the Baltic states that Ukraine is their outpost against Russia, which means that Ukrainians need to be supported in everything. As long as there are weapons, they are ready to supply them.

- the political scientist considers.

He recalls that Germany has expressed its readiness to build a plant for the production of ammunition in Ukraine. And in Poland, a joint German-Polish base is being created for the maintenance of Leopard tanks.

    Ha. And more recently, they wrote that both the "experts" and their media massively stated that the Russian Federation "cannot be defeated"
    And "sure" - they wrote about the statements of politicians coming out ...

    Someone is cheating

      There is no muhlezh. It's just modern technology and know-how. It used to be called self-deception, and now psychotraining. Get up in the morning and say to yourself: Ukraine will win. You have to repeat it a thousand times. And send ten thousand messages with this phrase to your friends. Do every morning. And then, maybe, maybe, suddenly it will happen. And then, you will tell the whole world on YouTube, Cart, Twitter, Tik-Tok, WhatsApp, Instagram and other verbiage applications: I knew it. laughing

    NATO training standards are taken from American ones. The United States has not won a single war on its own. Absolutely. Logic suggests that NATO is also effective. Their bewilderment is surprising.

      Hmm, what kind of parallel reality do you live in. If it was the United States that conducted a real NWO in the 21st century where they defeated an enemy that was a little less than Ukraine in a month. 2003, Iraq. Total defeat, then anti-terror

        To defeat a weak country that no one helped is, of course, the height of NATO's "heroism".

          Did someone help Ukraine a lot when the Russians made gestures of goodwill and regrouping with difficult decisions? Javelins with helmets?

            For 8 years, NATO has been preparing Ukraine for a war against us. Yes, and the supply of Western weapons began before February 24, not to mention the support for Ukraine with information from all NATO intelligence agencies.

        Fuck you think. Iraq means)))). It's like an elephant fell on a pug))). Shinobi had in mind and this is obviously a war with equals. Or those wars where the union or Russia intervened. (Vietnam, Afghanistan, Nicaragua, a number of African countries, the same Korea, etc.)
        They would have taken Narkozeeland in a week or two, until NATO intervened. Then Russia changed its tactics, about which, like mosquitoes, "former friends" are hammering into the light and dying. And this offensive is not beneficial for Russia at all. Let them gouge, both economically and politically, etc.
        And the Russian economy cannot be crushed, even if the Martians will come to help the West))). Subsoil - that's where the strength lies.

        It’s not clear what kind of illusions you are living on. My dear, I argued (and still affirm) that the United States has not won a single war on its own. Remind me how many countries participated in the "defeat" of Iraq? I will add: the USA / NATO have never fought with an equal enemy. Even approximately. For them, this is a nightmare. They openly say this. God forbid to enter into direct conflict with Russia, the only country on the globe equal in strength (suddenly, right?) to the United States. The only one in the world capable of fighting alone with the united West and destroy it within 20-34 minutes, if they finally ask for it. These are their words. Stoltenberg and Johnson can lie to their citizens until they are blue in the face and make loud speeches, this is nothing more than chatter.

    Yes, they hoped, of course. Do not forget that there are also Russians on the other side. Get out with Nazi brains, to be exact. And they fight like Russians. So far, I see that Putin is not conducting any grandiose operations, so as not to put people in vain. The situation around Ukraine and inside has not matured, everything is still working there, the people are potential soldiers, they still believe in something. So there is no need to give Europe hope that they will succeed here. They'll give it up... And then we'll pick it up, because it's ours.
