The "Russia is laughably incompetent" narrative was there from day 1. How many foreign "adventurers" have died when they confronted the Russians or worse yet the fuckin Chechny bros.

"I used to be an adventurer just like you, then I took a 5.45×39mm bullet to the knee."

Oh! I was supposed to believe Russia was incompetent? After the Palin treatment I knew the left is retarded and projected it on anyone not on their plantation. Then with Trump being an idiot and unhinged...

There Are competent unitsin the Russian army. I have however been shocked by some og the videos i have seen. There Are units who Are on paper proffesionals, but perform as conscripts

to know what's going on, just listen to what our government says on day 1. it's very likely the opposite of what's usually going on.

It's not a narrative anymore. It's a fact. The Chechen fucking islamists don't even fight. They are there to loot and punish deserters

The Russians control less territory than 2 months ago and have been severely attritted despite their numerical advantage, so yes, I would say they are ‘losing’.

‘Why’ is another matter that the military historians will have to tackle. Certainly logistics, poor planning, poor morale, and poor leadership are going to be factors to a greater or lesser extent.

For those few Putards still left on this board, please check out Ukraine Weapons Tracker which is cataloging all the open source equipment losses on both sides. You can’t scroll through the hundreds of images and videos of destroyed Russian tanks, APCs, and aircraft and still think that this was Putin’s plan (lol) or that the Russians are ‘winning’.

Link? Do they keep a counter, or just a list of photos? It's easy to paint a picture of anyone "winning" if you just show a bunch of pictures of the enemy dead

The other thing that you will come away with is the sense that the Ukraine Armed forces have invented a new type of asymmetric warfare where drone corrected fires and light ATGM teams have turned the Russian armor advantage into a liability.

So many of the drone videos now show Russian troops fleeing their tanks as soon as the first round falls.

The other aspect is that the Russians are unable to employ the same drone tactics as the west-supplied MANPADS have been employed by the UKR so successfully. There must be at least a hundred pictures of Orlon wreckage.

Conversely, you can't scroll through hundreds of pictures of destoyed vehicles that are by and large decades old or of blasted convoys that have no gore or bodies present that think that Ukraine is "winning". Nevermind the rather conspicuous absense of the Russian Air Force as well as many Ukrainian ground maneuver units.

I never mentioned winning in my comment.

This is literal bullshit and you have to know it. Ukraine is running out of foods, weapons, and fuel fast. Russian has intact supply lines. Does this look like a winnable war of attrition?

The problem is that you know nothing of the Russian doctrine of warfare and don't take them at their word, and you are believing obvious agitprop designed to prop up the massive money laundering scheme your country is engaging in by funding and arming the Ukraine (since 2014 at least).

WIth all fuel refineries in Ukraine now blown up, how exactly will they go into battle against the Russian tank army which will advance once the heavily fortified positions in Donbass finally crack under month + of intense bombardment from the 'Orcs'?

Please stop with this nonsense about drones using repurposed footage of desrtoyed Ukrops gear and claiming its Russian….
