"Russia is losing the war against Ukraine"

"Russia is losing the war against Ukraine"

The Russian army is losing 500 soldiers every day in Donetsk and Luhansk without achieving any results on the battlefield, writes Roman Rukomeda. Roman Rukomeda is a Ukrainian political analyst.

"The 281st day of massive Russian aggression against Ukraine has come to an end. The main battlegrounds have shifted to eastern Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions around Bakhmut and Svatovo, which are relatively small but important to the further plans of both sides.

In order to proceed with the liberation of the Luhansk region, the Ukrainian army must have some success near Svatova. For the Russian aggressors, Bakhmut is the place they must control in order to proceed with further aggression in the Donetsk region. The most significant Russian losses (about 500 soldiers killed each day) are occurring in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, where the Russians are using newly mobilized Stalin-style men - pushing them into a frontal assault on Ukrainian defense lines, which leads to hundreds of deaths on the Russian side every day," he says.

The analyst adds that the Russians have not made any progress and have continued to carry out the same type of attacks near Bakhmur. In the south, in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, the situation temporarily stabilized after the liberation of Kherson due to weather conditions - heavy rains, snow and very high humidity.

Bad weather does not allow the use of heavy machinery or tanks. This weather is good for defense but bad for offense.

"The Russians are destroying people's homes, critical infrastructure, hospitals, local authorities, buildings, etc. In areas where they can reach their targets at about 30-50 km, Russian terrorists use howitzers, MLRS systems or drones. For a longer distance, they use rockets and ballistic missiles.

"Every day Russian war criminals kill Ukrainian civilians, including children, women, significant evidence of mass graves of murdered, raped and tortured Ukrainians," the analyst adds.
