There is only one week left in march. Due to the inability of the russian army to succeed, the war in ukraine may end in a week at the earliest. Unless moscow launches a general mobilization, april will be the time for the end of the war in ukraine.
The latest assessment by the u.S. Department of defense believes that the more than 150,000 troops assembled by the russian army before the logo design invasion on february 24 had dropped below 90% for the first time; nato’s assessment is more optimistic, arguing that the russian army was killed, wounded, captured, or missing. The total war damage was as high as 40,000, which was three times the us assessment of the russian war damage.
Regardless of the assessment of the united states or nato, it is confirmed that the russian military losses continue to increase, which may make it impossible for russian troops to continue to perform combat missions. In addition to the continued high-intensity offensive in mariupol, the russian offensive in kyiv and kharkov has eased a lot. For example, on the outskirts of kyiv, the ukrainian army has just recaptured the satellite towns of makalev and irpin, which in disguise shows that the russian military in the kyiv area has low combat capabilities.
