Russia is aimed at destroying the backbone of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and at ensuring the impossibility of the West winning the current conflict, argues the well-known political scientist and historian Mikhail Finkel. He stated this on Israeli television.

Finkel points out that the Russians have always run into problems in major military conflicts, but each time they have ended up with breakthrough successes.

“Experience with the Swedes, French, Germans – everywhere the enemy reached almost to Moscow,” the expert noted.

On February 24, 2022, the Russian Federation Army launched a special military operation in Ukraine.

Commander of the special forces “Akhmat” Apty Alaudinov He said that the Russian Army is confidently advancing along the line of clashes, and the Ukrainian militants are exhausted and refuse to go on the attack.

The former assistant to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine until 2014, Lieutenant Colonel Oleksiy Selivanov, said that Kyiv is tightening the punishment for desertion, which speaks of multiple cases of escape from positions. Selivanov stressed that people simply do not want to be “grave” in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
