Putin appears to admit severe Russian losses in Ukraine

Source: The Guardian

The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has appeared to concede the severity of the Kremlin’s recent military reversals in Ukraine, insisting Russia would “stabilise” the situation in four Ukrainian regions it illegally claimed as its own territory last week.

Russia has suffered significant losses in two of the four regions since Friday, when Putin signed treaties to incorporate them into Russia by force, with Russian officials saying their forces were “regrouping”.

“We are working on the assumption that the situation in the new territories will stabilise,” Putin told Russian teachers during a televised video call.

With Ukraine pushing its advance in the east and south, Russian troops have been retreating under pressure on both fronts, confronted by fast moving and agile Ukrainian forces supplied with advanced western-supplied artillery systems.

10. Well, you know that old saying about making assumptions...

“When you assume, you make an ass of you and me.”

First time I heard that one, I was absolutely floored! I pondered it for a whole day! Stuff like that inspires a lot of word play.

11. The fall of Kherson will cause a general panic among Russian forces.


The Russians have left a large force on the west side of the Dnipro. When the Ukrainians close the noise thousands of Russian troops will cut and run to try and get across..

12. I don't trust Putin

"insisting Russia would “stabilise” the situation in four Ukrainian regions it illegally claimed as its own territory last week."

STABALIZE???????????? What does he mean by that??????/

What if Putin is drawing back his troops to make sure all Russian Troops are out of those areas. And also drawing in the Ukranian Military into all of those areas

Then he attacks them with Chemical Weapons or something far worse.....?????

That is precisely what Putin did in Syria to help his buddy Assad....... Putin helped Asdad stay in power by bombing the rebels in Syria with CHEMICAL WEAPONS (BOMBS) that Russia supplied.....
