The Great Russian Army has already lost at least 50,000 soldiers, dead or wounded, since the beginning of the war, which has now reached its 144th day, which has been characterized by massive and intense attacks and missile attacks, especially on the southeastern front. The UK defense chief estimates that Russian forces have lost more than 30% of their combat effectiveness in the field and believes Russia is “a much more degraded nation than it was at the start of February”. For this reason, Admiral Tony Radakin explained, the Ukrainian military is “absolutely” committed to winning the war against a “struggling Russia.” A weakness that has found no echo in Moscow, it has indeed raised the tone of warmongering rhetoric. Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has threatened “the end of the world, an immediate response, which cannot be avoided in any way” if Ukrainian forces invade Crimea. According to the current deputy chairman of the National Security Council, Russia will achieve its goals, and Kiev’s efforts “to resist to the last Ukrainian will lead to the collapse of its current political regime”. But the Moscow ‘hawk’ warning is also being sent to NATO countries, saying that refusing to recognize the peninsula overlooking the Black Sea as Russian territory is a “systemic threat” to Moscow that could lead to direct conflict. Fire words were rejected by the Kiev sender. Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky, downplayed Medvedev’s image, replying that he was “a small figure forgotten by history, who tries to present himself as serious and menacing, but in reality only inspires pity.” Back and forth as the drama unfolds on the ground: Russian fire has not lost its intensity, with violent attacks in the Odesa region and southeast of Mykolaiv and Zaporizhzhya. According to Kyiv police, “1,346 civilian bodies” have been recovered so far in the capital region alone, most of them shot by Russian guns. On the other hand, in Vinnytsia, in the center of the village, a funeral procession went with the remains of a four-year-old girl who lost her life in a missile attack last week, where 23 people died and one person was reported missing. The killing of Lisa Dmitrieva, who suffered from Down syndrome, shocked not only Ukraine. Meanwhile, a British citizen held captive by pro-Russian separatists appeared on Russian television in a video where he asked Prime Minister Boris Johnson for help, saying he would face the death penalty. He was a 50-year-old from Sunderland and was captured fighting with the Azov Regiment during the Battle of Mariupol. Two other Britons caught in the southern port city, Aidan Aslin and Shaun Binney, were sentenced to death by a court in the self-proclaimed pro-Russian republic of Donetsk. The Ukrainian intelligence and internal security agency is also restless: according to Politico’s analysis, the political turmoil of the Ukrainian 007s could have led to acts of treason that led to the Russian invasion and the loss of Ukraine’s strategic city. Gerson. For this reason, according to the same source, Zelensky is thinking about a purge within the same services.
