100 day. Russian Roulette and Russian Reality Check?

Putin's Blitzkrieg was little more than wishful thinking.

The steadfast and resolute Ukrainian national honour and pride were consolidated by its new, untried President, who with one sentence, his Churchillian styled statement, "I want weapons not a ride" told his countrymen and the world – he would not fold or bend his knee to an aggressor. Neither he or Ukraine were afraid of Putin or Russia.

It is impossible at this time to estimate, let alone count, the cost to Ukraine. In human terms. Tens of thousands of innocent Ukrainian, men, women and children have been killed, murdered, raped, and injured, their lives lost, destroyed and changed for ever. Reported yesterday news, more than 300,00 children of Ukraine have been stolen, forcibly deported to Russia. In social and economic terms; businesses, public services, cities, towns villages, roads bridges, railways, airports all destroyed, and for what?

To satisfy Putin's thirst for power and to distract attention from his own incompetence and lies to his people. For a man of alleged incredible mental ability, his miscalculation and expectation that his Blitzkrieg would bring nations to heel, has been proven to be wrong. From the smallest to the largest, either individually or collectively, they have found the strength to challenge Putin, not Russia, but Putin and reject his threats.

But what of the cost to Russia?

In military terms it has been a disaster. The anticipated collapse of Ukraine under the might of a Russian blitzkrieg, was not to be. On land, in the air and at sea Ukraine demonstrated a small country of 44 million can withstand the onslaught and give a "bloody-nose" to the aggressive Russian Bear.

More than 30,000 troops killed, 10generals and admirals lost, on average 300 Russian soldiers have died every day, 4500 tanks,400 aircraft, flagship of the Black Sea fleet destroyed in fighting.

In economic terms the Russian economy is bruised if not battered. Soon its people will have to adjust and struggle with the reality of Putin's folly. Virtually overnight, its export of oil and gas to Europe, have disappeared, together with the much, needed foreign currency to prop up Putin's Russia

The nett bottom line result is wasted Billions of $ or Euros, Roubles, lost on a pointless war, bringing a global societal change that will take decades to forget and recover....but never forgive...

Вже три місяці йде війна між Росією і Україною. Але ні, це не точно, війна йде вже більше 400-500 років. 300 років тому у 1721 року, цар Петро-І проголосив Московське царство "Российской империей" а москвитів – "россиянами"...
