Certainly wasn’t my impression.
But, first: Are you getting that false flag vibe? There are a number of interesting reports circulating today that have raised my early warning system alert.
Claims that Russia is ‘retreating’ as Ukraine advances? Or claims that Russia is no longer going to take Kiev because they are unable? Was that ever Russia’s goal or intention?
Or how about this from science.org?
“Nosovskyi’s worries have multiplied. In the chaos of the Russian advance, he told Science, looters raided a radiation monitoring lab in Chornobyl village—apparently making off with radioactive isotopes used to calibrate instruments and pieces of radioactive waste that could be mixed with conventional explosives to form a “dirty bomb” that would spread contamination over a wide area.’
That’s a new claim. One I’ve not seen or read previously. Anyone else?
I’ve personally never held the belief that Russia was interested in taking Kiev. Just an opinion. And while the western media spins Russia is changing course or may resort to ‘dirty bombs’ etc., because actions they’ve undertaken are failing, there are reports that contradict the 5/6 eyes media narrative.
Ukranian Military Admits Russia has captured territory to connect Crimea to Donetsk region- something that, in my opinion, was planned. As hubby and I monitored maps we came to conclusion that looked to be the plan. Seemed sensible to us.
Washington Examiner: Russia captures land connecting Crimea to Donetsk region: Ukrainian military
Russia has captured a land corridor from eastern Ukraine to the Crimean Peninsula, completing a goal of its military since the beginning of the invasion more than four weeks ago.
Russia has sought to capture enough land between Crimea and the eastern part of Ukraine, which has a significant pro-Russian separatist faction, so that it could more easily move supplies and troops from one area to the other.
That was achieved.
Problematic for the Ukrainian military. Very problematic.
