What i see is that russia’s winter offensive has almost ran out of steam.My guess would be half a year given that Ukraine has exhausted a large chunk of their reserves to defend Bakhmut. In any case, Russia will complete the liberation of the Donbass however long it takes.
Sloviansk/kramatorsk is far out of reach.
In a half year, russia will actually have less occupied territory then it has now. Ukranian counteroffensive is coming.
Lets see who is right, so far i have not been wrong.
Except Goliath is not really putting in much effort to fight.I think you are only confirming what I said about Russia being a David against the NATO goliath. There is no comparison between the two blocks. The perpetuated and propagated narrative is false that a tiny Ukraine fighting a mighty Russia. On the contrary. Ukraine has many advantages starting from being the defender and backed by the mightiest military and economic alliance in history.
Russia likes to portray it as “fighting Nato” but its still mostly a fight against ukraine with a handful of Nato handmedowns.
(Economically it is indeed a power struggle).
