The UA should continue to hold targets in Russia’s rear and indeed in Russia at risk.

Let the patriotic Russians have a taste of what they’re serving.

I'm trying to remember if I've ever heard American missiles described as 'fatal' (when they literally hit everything in Raqqa after their illegal and unprovoked invasion of Syria, they were described as accurate, targeted, even liberating - but I can't recall the adjective fatal being used despite the number of civilians killed)

But wasn't Russia supposed to be running out of missiles 'in days or weeks' a few monthsago?

Aren't the 'good guys' who keep sending offensive weapons to Zelensky and the Azovs sending defensive ones?

Isn't NATO's weapons and armor, like their morals and morale so vastly superior to Russia's that Russia lost the war the day they crossed into Ukraine?

ok so who is winning today?

UA as usual-no doubts.Ukroruine slava!

Russia cant win since have no missiles,no bullets,no chips for drones.

Or...?

RichardPearce good comments good not agree with your more.Double standard at its best.

ok so who is winning today?

Certainly not the folks at Engels airbase. lol Certainly not the 500+ Russian servicemen killed yesterday.

How long will the Russian people tolerate sending their husbands and sons to die in Ukraine for Putin's bloodlust?

ok so who is winning today?

Not the 3 man crews of the 2,900 tanks that multi-function as cremation tools.

Not the hundreds of aircraft and helicopter pilots who ended their flying careers in a “blaze of glory.”

Certainly not the combat alfalfa that are so hypothermic that they cannot evacuate when a grenade is dropped on their open foxhole.

In short, “Not Russia” is winning because Russia is getting bleed dry while it fails to attain its objectives.

maybe its hard for west to admit that they have failed in UA but bad part of it is that more and more people must diein UA everyday until west will come to its basic senses.all just in name of US interests.

underestimation of Russia went pricey for Napoleon and also Hitler too.

learn from your mistakes and do something about it.its about time to stop all of this now.longer you wait-cost will be higher for your underestimating.

According to Russian milbloggers, Ukraine is winning today. From the ISW:

Anger over the Russian military’s inability to prevent the Ukrainian strikes on Russian strategic airbases over 280 miles from Ukrainian positions outweighed praise for the latest round of strikes against Ukraine within the Russian milblogger community.

Russian marauders again doing what they're best at:

terrorizing the civilian population of Ukraine, trying to starve or freeze them to death, another genocide attempt. Comparing with history, Napoleon and Hitler - well this comparison should be made concernin Putin an associates! They are the ones who invaded a sovereign country, the ones who are looing, raping, deporting and so on. Putin and his followers should face an international court. And "about time to stop all of this now" - sure, very easy: Russia pull out of Ukrane and all occupied territories, pay reparations, accept Ukraine as a free and sovereign state (incl. Crimea etc, of course)!

Ukraine will prevail!

That's one "thought", here's another: Russia is not winning because it is not achieved ANY of it's objectives.

1) Ukraine remains free and independent.

2) The population not only did not welcome Russians as liberators, they rebelled against them and have not given in (nor will they) to attempts to bomb them into submission.

3) Zelenski remains in power, alive and popular.

4)NATO is not weakened. Not only is it unified, it has expanded.

5)Russia's combat power has been atriated (that means slowly ground down to the nub) and its ability to threaten NATO in any conventional way has been eliminated. In fact, it now faces NATO on its N. border and wheter Ukraine becomes a member or just a FON (Friend of NATO), on it's SE border as well.

underestimation of Russia went pricey for Napoleon and also Hitler too.

Perhaps I am mistaken but who is invading whom here? Is the UA trying to march on Moscow in the dead of winter? Oh, wait the invading army with the long supply lines, shaky logistics and freezing soldiers in unprepared bunkers is the RUSSIAN "army". (I think this kind of undercuts your analogy, don't you?)

Ah, yes. A history lesson! Indeed, Napoleon hadn’t figured the Ukrainians would burn Kiev nor that his retreating Grande Armée would be so effectively harassed during their withdrawal through a Ukraine in arms during the onset of winter.

Should be "South West border"

Again, my apologies.

All I want for Christmas is an edit function....

Correctamundo

You forgot no morale & no hope

maybe its hard for west to admit that they have failed in UA 

I think it’s harder for you to admit you’re on the wrong team, again

underestimation of Russia went pricey for Napoleon and also Hitler too.

underestimation of the resolve & determination of an invaded country went pricey for Napoleon and also Hitler too. We shall be adding Russia’s name to that list soon.

Isn't NATO's weapons and armor, like their morals and morale so vastly superior to Russia's that Russia lost the war the day they crossed into Ukraine?

Ukraine will prevail!

Same for Russia..

This will be a long-winded showdown, a long winter in which Russia has the upper hand...

If the comedian president does not open negotiations with Russia, he and his country will deeply regret it..

Same for Russia..

No it won't.

This will be a long-winded showdown, a long winter in which Russia has the upper hand...

lol The invading army rarely has the upper hand. This is doubly true when you're trying to invade in sub-zero weather.
