... in the interview to BBC. I am talking about 404 Office of President adviser Mikhail Podolyak, who admitted that VSU loses between 100 to 200 KIAs every day.
Translation: Kyiv, June 10. /TASS/. Ukraine loses from 100 to 200 servicemen killed per day. Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, said this on Thursday, the BBC Ukrainian service reports.
Of course, we all know that the situation is much--many fold--worse for VSU, but the very fact that they begin to admit the rout is important. Of course, Podolyak blamed these losses on whatever weapon systems VSU lacks, but hey, Kiev told the whole world that it fought Russian Army for eight years in Donbass. What has happened now in under 100 days then, once Russian Army showed up in moderately sized force?
As Bernhard of MoA points out to General Twitty's exchange with Richard Haas of CFR in his excellent write up on the "blame game". As Twitty responds to Haas:
Now, we all have to ask ourselves this question: hear from who? We know the answer--US MSM verbatim conveying Ukie propaganda, period. But you win on the battlefield, not on the talk shows. Now that even Ukie MoD confirms daily 500 sanitary (300s) losses, it all adds up to a military catastrophe and cessation of VSU as an actual army. Many can tell now where those 200,000 VSU are. I will omit here discussion of operational matters, because we still don't know all the facts, but I want to reiterate what I stated at the very beginning of SMO--this operation will be studied in the military academies everywhere for many decades to come as a primer for Strategic and Operational planning in modern warfare.
