“… lately, the Ukrainians have been very successful in fighting back and counter attacking and part of that is because of the arrival of advanced weapons from the United States and NATO so that they are outclassing the Russians in terms of their ability to fight.”
Meanwhile, there is the “possibility of a mass surrender” of thousands of Russian troops as the result of fighting in the Kherson region, where Ukraine said Saturday it has killed numerous Russian soldiers, said Morris.
Rail traffic has been cut over the Dnipro River to Kherson, according to reports, potentially isolating Russian forces west of the river from obtaining supplies from Crimea and the east.
“That might have a tremendous impact on Russian public opinion and make it impossible to ignore their battlefield reverses,” said Morris. “The basic thrust of it is that Ukraine is winning. It’s doing very well and the motivation of its troops and its equipment is better.””
Comment: The potential is there for a debacle for RU so long as the UKA does not run out of ammunition and the target intelligence keeps flowing from American liaison. The scratch battalions that RU is raising regionally will just be meat for the grinder. pl
