Evidence surfaces that Putin survived alleged assassination! Russians make slow advance westward supported by heavy artillery

Following the withdrawal from the north of Ukraine, Russia has refocused its efforts on taking control of the east and south of the country.

The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) says Russia has likely suffered a similar death toll in the first three months of its Ukraine operation, to that experienced by the Soviet Union during its nine year war in Afghanistan.

It says a combination of factors have led to the high number of casualties, including poor tactics and limited air cover.

Slow Russian advances continues in east

Russian officials have said its forces are fighting for the “complete liberation” of the Donbas, which broadly refers to Ukraine’s eastern regions of Donetsk and Luhansk, where Russian-backed separatists held significant territory before the invasion.

The focus of Russian forces in recent weeks has been around the city of Izyum and in the east towards Severodonetsk.

Russian troops have taken control of Rubizhne and Popasna as they move to surround their target of Severodonetsk.

To the north, however, Ukrainian forces have now pushed the majority of Russian forces away from Kharkiv, the country’s second largest city.

The ISW (Institute of War) reports that Russian troops withdrawn from around Kharkiv are now being redeployed to the Donetsk region.

(Ed-I don’t normally write like this) But so much for the adage Семь дней до реки Рейн», Sem’ dney do reki Reyn ??A top-secret military simulation exercise developed in 1979 by the Warsaw Pact. Depicted the Soviet bloc’s vision of a seven-day nuclear war.

Many had to live under the fear and threat that terrorised us all in the Nineteen seventies.

Now the Russians experience ordeal and mutilation getting across Ukraine and have lost a large number of men and armoured vehicles, tanks and aircraft etc?

Unless there is another factor that we don’t yet know such as the level of sophistication of western supplied arms,”advisors” etc.

Morale inside the Russian army of conscripts,morale inside the Russian nation possibly (the civilian Russian population may have no stomache for a territorial-expansionist fight against a fellow Slav nation.)

Who knows ?It’s hundreds of miles away from England,thousands of miles from America,we are kept pretty much in the dark by drip feed threadbare reporting.

Ukraine’s First Lady on Monday warned a WHO assembly that the impacts of Russia’s war of reclamation upon this eastern territory and the subsequent impact upon the troops and civilians mental health might be felt for decades.

Putin survives Assassination

Putin escaped assassination attempt – claim

An attempt was made to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin, a top Ukrainian security official has claimed in an interview with news outlet Ukrayinska Pravda.

In an interview with Pravda, Kyrylo Budanov, the head of the chief intelligence directorate at Ukraine’s Ministry of Defence,  said the assassination attempt was made after the Kremlin’s invasion in February.

He went on to say the Russian leader was attacked by representatives from the Caucasus region, which sits between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea.

However, no proof has been presented so far – and Sky News has not been able to verify the claim.

Mr Budanov told the Ukrainian paper: “There was an attempt to assassinate Putin. He was even attacked, it is said, by representatives of the Caucasus, not so long ago. 

“This is non-public information. It was an absolutely unsuccessful attempt, but it really happened. It was about two months ago.

“I repeat, this attempt was unsuccessful. There was no publicity about this event, but it did take place.” (?????)
