Analysis of phase 1 of the Ukrainian war with many backgrounds.
Excellent Article-Thank You For Sharing!!!

Одличан текст. Поздрав из Србије.
Just a quick question: what is a strategic planner in the civilian world?
A great article. Many have noted that Russia's losses were greatest in the first two or three weeks. Perhaps over 400 tanks and some aircraft and up to 2000 men, although it is hard to say exactly. But losses are hard to confirm and NATO propaganda exaggerates, distorting the picture. I think that the RF expected to lose some aircraft before the Ukrainian AD defenses were degraded. The AD was very good. Russian, of course. As for Kiev, the forces their were undermanned . But they did their job: keeping the UAF occupied in the north. Still, the bulk of the fighting was done by the DPR and LPR militias and most of the casualties are theirs. So, at this point, the Russians have lost perhaps 20,000 total. The Ukrainians have lost likely 200,000. I might be wrong, of course. In any case, your analysis is really spot-on. Thank you for this.
