Russia Suffers Massive Losses During Ukraine Invasion

According to the Ukrainian Department of Defense, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion into Ukraine is backfiring big time.

The Washington Examiner reports:

About 2,800 Russian soldiers have died in the first 36 hours of Russia’s bloody invasion, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine claims.

If true, Russia‘s losses in the first days following its invasion of Ukraine top the casualties U.S. soldiers faced during the 20-year military operation in Afghanistan. Ukraine also says it destroyed nearly 600 tanks and armored vehicles and over 17 warplanes and helicopters.

“This morning, we are defending our country alone. Just like yesterday, the most powerful country in the world looked on from a distance,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said in an apparent reference to the United States on Friday. “Russia was hit with sanctions yesterday, but these are not enough to get these foreign troops off our soil. Only through solidarity and determination can this be achieved.”

The U.S. Pentagon has not independently confirmed the casualty count in Ukraine, and warring nations have incentives to exaggerate the numbers.

According to NBC News:

Despite an overwhelming advantage in manpower and equipment, the Russian advance lost some of its momentum Friday and the quick victory Russian President Vladimir Putin was counting on is no longer assured, a senior United States defense official told NBC News.

“We do assess that there is greater resistance by the Ukrainians than the Russians expected,” the official said. “They are fighting for their country.”

While Russian forces are threatening the capital, Kyiv, and other major cities like Kharkiv and small-but-strategic cities like Rivne, none have have been taken so far and the Ukrainian air defenses remain largely intact, despite being targeted by relentless missile attacks, the official said.

While the Ukrainians are fighting to save their country from being taken over by the Russians and our nitwit commander-in-chief is preoccupied with kissing Russian asses, it might be a good time for us to begin fighting to save our country, as well. Right now, the only people Biden is comfortable in fighting is white Americans-anything else might be…..you know, racist.

Well, you have to remember in war both sides are going to make claims that may not be true, we’ll have to wait for the smoke to clear to see.

“The most powerful country in the world looked on from a distance,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said, meaning the USA. As long as the coward Joe Biden imports 500,000 barrels of Russian oil a day, our sad sick nation, in the clutches of the evil Democrats who haven taken us from an oil exporting nation under President Trump to a nation begging for its life’s blood from Putin and the sultans and dictators of OPEC, will continue to blunder about with the two contrary imbeciles fighting for the wheel on our sinking ship of state.

Are you crazy? You really want Harris in the oval office? And if you add her to the list then you have to deal with nutty Pelosi. The line up we got is a disaster for our country.

Putin is not unhinged. He saw his opening, after weighing the odds, and took it. However, despite Uncle Sap in the guise of a feckless and doddering Joe Biden is sitting on the sidelines too petrified send military weapons and munitions to Ukraine, it appears in some communications, that the Ukrainian military is fighting like tigers with their backs against the wall. Reports indicate that Russia has lost some 12,000 troops, 200 tanks and numerous choppers and jet fighters. At this point, none of the major cities, like Kyiv, have fallen despite Putin’s boasts of an early wrap up.

Recall, if you will, the bloodbath that would’ve greeted the Nazis had they managed to land in England in July or August of 1940 when they held the upper hand, in men, materiél and aircraft, and all of the British Army’s equipment, light and heavy, lay in the French sand from Le Havre to Dunkerque. Pitchforks, rifles, fowling pieces and ancient blunderbusses would’ve been brought to bear on the invaders from every possible nook and cranny offering concealment. The Germans would have had to kill everyone especially in view of the English madness exhibited at football (soccer) games.

That would be expensive and constitute “overkill. How about something less noisy and more appropriate? Like rat poison?

Perhaps the hapless Ukrainian president should have spoke with Putin and held to the previous agreements….like not shelling and killing the Ukrainians in Donbass like they have been doing the last 6 years.

What shelling and killing are you talking about? That of the separatists or that of the forces fighting for the Ukranian government? If the latter, do you think the separatists are any less guilty of these things?

I wish it were true but this report is 100% bullsh-t. Ukraine does not have the capability of doing that kind of damage in a couple of days.

I hope that what is alleged in this article is in fact absolutely true! The Russians appear to have have made reestablishment of the USSR a priority and they have also squeezed the nitwits in Europe to trust to their energy needs to the Russians. You get what you sow!

Putin does not care how many Russians, Ukrainians or any other nationalities die, his mind is on taking real estate for his ultimate goal of restoring the U.S.S.R.! He has tunnel vision and will never be satisfied with anything less. The U.S.S.R. was a huge communist conglomerate whose people were poor, hungry and many froze to death during winter months every year, it’s economy finally failed and imploded in on itself as all socialist/communist governments do. Countries broke away to become much better off economically and successful in every way than under the U.S.S.R. regime! Time no doubt has dimmed the realities of “Mother Russia” and Putin wants to restore her to her former self……bleak, despair, degradation, depressed, poor and owning nothing, hungry, sick, cold……I simply can’t go farther with the description of what Putin really wants and will get if he has his way!

Putin has taken out the Deep State Cabal’s money laundering center and stopped the encroaching by NATO into Russian territory. Biden has pushed this war as hard as possible to protect the Deep State and the Satanist Politicians in the government

Whom do you consider to be Stalinist [not necessarily Satanist] politicians in the Russian government? Or don’t you think there are any?

Putin needs to be brought up on war crimes charges and crimes against humanity before the International Criminal Court in The Hague. China Joe needs to be impeached for treason as well as aiding and abetting Russia.

IN ORDER TO SAVE AMERICA NOW, PRESIDENT TRUMP NEEDS TO RUN AS “SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE”, {SHORT OF A “COUP}, THIS IS WOULD BE THE BEST OFFICE FOR HIM TO ATTAIN, AS THIS IS THE BEST WAY FOR HIM TO START OFF HI,”REVENGE TOUR”, TO TAKE OUT THE “RIFF-RAFF” WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT. TO HELP PAVE THE WAY INTO HIS RIGHTFULLY WON 2ND TERM AS #47. #46 SHOULD BE WIPED CLEAN AS THE FRAUDULENT GOVERNMENT IT IS.
