1. The biggest problem for Russia is military members are not being paid due to lack of Government funding. It is no wonder morale amongst troops is low. Families of Russian soldiers depend on salaries of there sons just to survive. Low morale of soldiers is something Putin cannot improve, if war breaks out, expect many desertions.

    How do you know that? Pull it out of your backside? The vast majority of Russia's military are professional fulltime soldiers aka they get paid for their service mate.

  3. The greatest burden in these situations is borne by the average person, whether trying to survive in an economy that is near collapse or God forbid war. Itís always the ordinary folk, so when you read things like people are ready to go to the front, itís never Zelinsky or any member of his government. I, and I guess many others would love to see the top lead the changes from the trenches, but no they stay in their warm offices and homes. They would say between themselves let the expendables do the fighting.
    The Americans came up with the idea that if the Russians went into Ukraine, they would arm and financially support a partisan like resistance movement in Ukraine. Hit and run tactics. They could attack the Russians then disappear over the border into Poland where they had sanctuary. Itís an academy award crackpot idea of 2021.

    They had a poll in Ukraine on this partisan movement idea. Let me say when the results came out it has never been raised again.

    The Americans are totally bereft of any logic or intellect. The Russians are going to run them ragged into the ground. They donít need to move weaponry anywhere LOL.
