An American Colonel Douglas Macgregor told the truth about the situation in Ukraine. Main theses:
✔️ Still active Ukrainian military units are cut off and surrounded in various settlements. They are capable of only small-scale attacks on insignificant objects. The outcome of the war is predetermined.
✔️ For the Russian army, the main problem initially was the task to advance without great destruction and civilian casualties. This creates the illusion of slow progress, which the West uses to convince the whole world that Russia is on its way to defeat.
✔️ The war can be ended quickly, paying no attention to destruction and casualties, but Putin absolutely does not need this. 70% of Russian citizens support their president – that’s a lot.
✔️ In the south-east of Ukraine, 16 thousand soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are surrounded. This has been already going on for several days, and it is not known what they still have and in what quantity. But Russia is not interested in their destruction – surrendering is better.
✔️ The Russian army tries to avoid the central part of Ukraine, especially fields, so as not to obstruct the sowing campaign.
✔️ The task of the Russian Army is to take control of all important facilities. The seizure of the territory is not the aim, the destruction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine – that is the point. The goal is almost reached, without taking into account the surrounded troops.
✔️ Mariupol is a big problem: there are a lot of Nazis from Azov Battalion, which is fraught with great destruction. But McGregor doesn’t know what the Russian high command has in mind.
✔️ In the United States, Putin is considered to be the world’s evil, all information about the events until 2014, about 14,000 killed during the conflict in the Donbass, is hushed up. But McGregor is confident that the truth will come out anyway.
✔️ The biggest lie on American TV is about the order of the Russian army to kill Ukrainian civilians. Mistakes happen, but intentional killings are excluded.
