😂 Did he really just say that the Largest Nation in the world which houses many of the world coldest cities and lays claim to about 53% of the Arctic, will run out of winter equipment?? 😂😂😂😂😂😂

They literally have more military bases in the Arctic than all of NATO

Russian never thought it would have to fight a war during the harsh Ukraine winter. Russia is a tropical country. Russian will suffer so badly
And let's not forget Astrazenica vaccine is 120% safe and effective

1:24 saying that Russians will be miserable during winter since they lack proper winter equipment ignores the fact that fighting during winter has been the winning card for Russia since always... Most recent example are napoleon and hitlah... I am not sure how to interpret his comment then!?

As the scope of damage to Ukraine's energy systems has come into focus in recent days, Ukrainian and Western officials have begun sounding the alarm but are also realizing they have limited recourse. Ukraine's Soviet-era power system cannot be fixed quickly or easily. In some of the worst-hit cities, there is little officials can do other than to urge residents to flee - raising the risk of economic collapse in Ukraine and a spillover refugee crisis in neighboring European countries.

Heavy positional fighting continues near Bakhmut. Attempts by the 🇺🇦AFU to counterattack on the outskirts of Opytnoye were unsuccessful. Having exhausted the reserves deployed to the city, the AFU has turned to defense in the Bakhmut area. 🇷🇺Wagner PMC fighters took control of a waste processing plant on the south-eastern outskirts of Bakhmut. The AFU is laying minefields in the town and suburbs of Bakhmut. Engineer-sapper units from the 🇺🇦53rd Mechanized Brigade have blown up most of the road bridges. Fierce artillery duels are taking place along the entire frontline. The 🇺🇦AFU command intends to withdraw the 🇺🇦10th Mountain Assault Brigade to the Lviv Region to restore combat capability.

Opytnoye Southern Sector:
The 🇷🇺3rd Brigade of the DPR People's Militia completed the clearing of Mayorsk and launched an offensive towards Kurdyumivka. As a result of the offensive on the Kurdyumovka - Kirovo line, Russian forces have occupied five platoon strongholds west of Zaitsevo. Due to heavy losses, the Ukrainian militants left the defensive lines to regroup

🇺🇦AFU mobilised men to Toretsk (Dzerzhinsk) and Kirovo to reinforce the 🇺🇦AFU's 5th Separate Assault Regiment. In addition, residents of Chasov Yar report the arrival of at least one Battalion of the 🇺🇦AFU's 66th Mechanized Brigade.

I am in Kharkiv and there was no electricity from around 14.00 yesterday to 07.00 this morning. There is no water either.

True story from Montana a few years ago. Power went out to an entire town.. They tracked it down, and found out that there was a baby deer, 40 feet in the air that fell onto electrical wires. It had been caught by an eagle, but the eagle couldn't handle it and dropped it. What Russia is doing is insignificant to the war. Yes, probably a few hundred old people will freeze, and life will be annoying.. but Russia is using expensive missiles to blow up small electrical towers which can be replaced and repaired pretty easily. They are basically using millions of dollars of weapons to do what a fawn did.

When the ground freezes enough to support heavy armored equipment, the Russians will make their move. Meanwhile, today's missile attack just took out 20 percent more of Ukraine's energy infrastructure. It's a sad war.

This same guy said that Russia is running out of missiles.
His analysis is mere wishful thinking rather than objective unbiased analysis of reality and the best outcome for Ukrainian people.

When the bridge to Crimea was bombed Putin retaliated by destroying Ukraine's power grid. It doesn't look like he's going away and he's sitting on some of the most powerful and sophisticated weapons ever conceived.
