Thanks to these words, we stand. If our president fled, then most likely the management of the army would collapse. I'm from Poltava, I assumed it. Everyone in the city assumed that we never had a politician stand up for ordinary people, and then the president himself says I WILL FIGHT!!! I was impressed. But at the same time, in the early days, everyone in the city was in the mood to fight, all the inhabitants of the city helped build block posts / fortifications because they thought that they would come soon. Thanks to the efforts of our army, they could not reach my city. BUT he dug in and dug in so it seems to be the front line of the First World War. And there are hundreds of such lines in the depths of the territory of Ukraine, far from the front. I am a Freight Forwarder by profession and often travel across the territory of Poltava and neighboring regions and everywhere I see trenches and defense lines with barbed wire and pillboxes along the roads. As in the years of the First or Second World War. If the Russians want to take us, then they ran into the wrong people. And the first person whose merit in this is our president. Yes, we have many questions about his activities as the leader of the country, but in a difficult hour for us, he did not run away (as those who were before him did), but began to fight with us, for which we respect him. We have not yet had such a leader whose name would proudly stand next to Petro Sahaydachny, Ivan Bohun, Bogdan Khmelnitsky, Symon Petlyura, Petro Bolbochan (general of the UPR captured Crimea in 1918) ..... And now two more names Vladimir Zelensky and Valery Zaluzhny will appear in this historical list.

Many of us thought that the defense would collapse in a few days. (remembering 2014 and the then state of the army). But what I saw on February 25-26 in my city I have not seen in my entire life. The whole city (Poltava 250-300,000 people) seemed to rush to the defense. Half on the first day, sweeping everything off the supermarket shelves, ran away from the city. And the other hastily rushed to his defense, All who could carry sandbags to the checkpoints / fortifications, others prepared Molotov cocktails (a bottle of fire mixture). The morale of the inhabitants was such that "we will fight, but we will not give up." And for the first time I felt like among strangers, I never thought that my people were capable of such a thing. The Ukrainian people have been exposed for centuries!! And in my Poltava there are many Russian speakers and even Russians themselves. BUT there are also many migrants from the Donbas region who were the most evil. One of them, whom I met exactly on February 24, when sandbags were being loaded, answered me briefly. "I saw these motherfuckers (Russians) in 2014, it was enough up to my throat. Here in the new house (Poltava) I don't want to see them. So that they die creatures." This is all you need to know about Russians from the Russians themselves, if you can call the inhabitants of eastern Ukraine that way. Which the Russians came to "defend".

@Dmitry Yakimenko thank you for your comment. Everyone in your country has a role to play, Zelensky's role was to increase morale and lead people to fight and gather support from international leaders. He accomplished this role very well and is probably the reason why Ukraine is still standing as country. Not just defending but also winning in the battlefield. Goodluck to you and your country. SLAVA UKRAINE!

I find it just a little bit too soft on the Russian side. If you listen to him, you think Russia more or less chose to retreat by themselves from the northern front. While in reality it was a cruising defeat with thousands of deaths, enormous amount of loss of equipment and logistical nightmare. He just brushed on these, while the Ukrainian inflicted immense loss to the Russian due to their courage, tactics and help with arms shipment from abroad.

By & large, the video is accurate in all high-level stuff that matter long-term. Except army sizes are very wrong, of especially Russia -> waaaaaay smaller professional, attack-capable army; I’d say 300k-350k max, 200-250k deployed to Ukraine up until this day + 20-30k “Donbas” separatist army. Expect likely somewhat more tanks in the attack with Russia than the stated number, but likely way less planes operable & somewhat fewer helicopters as well. Expect ~50k troops already killed/ wounded/ captured & 30k deserted. Also somewhat misrepresented army of Ukraine (I’d say around 200k additional semi-trained mobilized reserve units actively fighting atm + substantially more being mobilized, equipped & trained, which is not true for Russia atm. Additionally, 1/4 to 1/3 fewer Ukrainian in-service tanks than stated here, by the start of the 2022 war; but now tank numbers are bolstered by NATO deliveries & captured Russian tanks. There is plenty missed in the video that is solidly provable by no-doubt video/photo evidence & a lot that is provable with context & “soft evidence” (testimonies, high-level Russian spy-informants), but for a 30-40 min condensed video, the highly important stuff is 95% covered. My sources are all OSINT & vague, so I hope people worry not

@Absolute Technically speaking, he's right, since Germany losing World War 2 led to the events that may or may not eventually lead to World War 3. This is like the case of people saying that the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki led to the creation of Anime. Technically correct, the end of World War 2 in Japan also ended the heavily militarised culture that eventually led to anime creation.

True. Thing is, people are suffering everyday just about everywhere. Someone probably just died in your city from a tragedy. We don't really pay much mind to those things though. There's been wars and borderline genocide going on in Africa and heck, even China for years, no one really cares about that. It's just funny (well, not funny but) to me how skewed our perspective is as westerners. No one cares about the price we pay to mine cobalt and diamonds in Africa or the price South America pays to satiate our drug addiction as a country. Just saying, something to keep in mind when focusing on it all.

Alongside with these words were "russian tanks go from Crimea to Kherson", and about airborne assault (landing) in Kyiv. And it was in Ukrainian public devoted to military forces. Then information was deleted. I think it was misinformation by russian services, they wanted panic in Ukraine.

Although the US pulled air support in Afghanistan, I would think that the fact that their president bolting from the country also played a part in the collapse of the afghan military.

morale or lack thereof is the single biggest reason the afghan army folded. the officers were corrupt as hell. the soldier left to fend for themselves didn't help with the morale. all of this is business as usual when it was just an insurgency to bleed the government. but when it became a proper invasion to capture ground, the lack morale came into play.

Cool video. What is lacking is yet another direction of the Russian attack that didn't happen: the encirclement of Odesa. They tried to reach Odesa from three axes simultaneously: through Mykolaiv, Transnistria, and a marine attack. These plans collapsed because Russians were repelled from Voznesensk, and Ukraine sank their flagship Moskva which had air defense for the entire Russian Black Sea fleet.

They have a HUGE opportunity to make this an "as things happened" thing. This way, walking through the information and theories that came up in chronological order along with some careful neutral word use will make it timeless just like any other documentary on this channel. Edit: since this got seen, some clarification. What I meant by this comment, is that it would be possible to make it an "as things happened" documentary series. This way, a summary of recent events would still be timeless, rather then more like an update video. I honestly don't remember why did I phrase it the way I did. Some got confused because of it, and I'm sorry.

The problem with this is that one side is giving accurate information which can be verified from independent OSINT sources (geolocated photos and videos of destroyed vehicles, occupied towns, active combat etc) while the other is reliant almost entirely on Russian state propaganda. In WW2 for example it took at least days and often weeks, months or years to verify or disprove individual incident reports. Many people to this day don't realize that the famous Okinawa flag photograph wasn't taken until the American forces had taken the hill for the 4th time, and then had to be staged multiple separate times for the cameraman once combat had finished. It took years for that to become public knowledge and it wasn't even a secret. Today that information would likely be known within 24 hours.

33:00 When it comes to tallying ship losses its better to do it in Naval Tons rather than individual craft. Afterall, its not really fair to count Ukrainian coastguard boats against Russian missile cruiers and assualt transports which outweigh the enemy losses 10 times or more.

I've come across this channel accidentally. Interesting video. I disagree only with some minor details, as I'm from Sumy. First of all, there were no Ukrainian Military Forces in the vicinity of Sumy. They defended Konotop cause the main railway center in Sumy region. Sumy and its neck of the woods were defended by the territory defense only. Oleksii Arestovych claimed the same in one of his speeches. The counterattack was probably made with the help of Ukrainian Army units. Second, Sumy wasn't bombed too heavily comparing to other nothern cities and towns. Waiting for the second part. Peace

@F, Frost Happens more frequently than you can imagine. During Winter War, Finland technically 'lost' the war on paper since they lost a portion of their territory to Russia but in practice they succesfully defended their nation, only having 70 thousand casualties compared to Russia which had 300,000+ and they prevented total annexation atleast. That looks like a win for Finland to me.
Bens Жыл бұрын
@QualityPen Resisting annexation is totally a win. The entire Finaland was supposed to be be forcefully integrated to the USSR but they mostly failed on that objective and only acquired a portion of Finland. Independent Chechnya also repelled alot of Russians during the Chechen wars and yet they still got annexed by the end becoming integrated into Russia. A small territory cannot be compared to an entire country.

6:40 I think it's also essential to note one other very important Ukrainian weapon: It's military's transformation into a modern army, with a modern doctrine matching NATO's starting in 2014. We know that NATO has perfected their defensive tactics. We saw at the start of the war how much the Russians were caught off guard by the ability of the Ukrainians to anticipate their movements, and how prepared they were to mount an extremely good defensive operation on all fronts. We sent a lot of our specialists in Ukraine in the 8 years prior to the start of the invasion, and the Ukrainians took every advantage of that help. I would suggest that the Ukrainian military went from a poor-man's Red Army into an extremely up-to-date fighting force inside of only 8 years. They overtook the Russians and left them in the dust. It doesn't appear like Putin was either aware or wanted to accept that fact. And the Russians paid dearly for that mistake...
JFHeroux Жыл бұрын
otto Lincoln I don't think that's how you should interpret how things went so far. Ukraine lost WAY LESS manpower in the first phase of the war than anyone anticipated. Now, against a more coordinated and concentrated push, they are loosing what would be expected (1 man for every 3 Russians so far). But yes, we need to do more. We need to actually tell Putin we are assembling an international coalition force and on a set date we're going into Ukraine. He can either fall back into Russia or get his troops blown-out. That's what we need to do. This war could be over inside of a week if all went in. Between all of the allied countries, we have about a 20:1 advantage over Russia. We would gain air superiority in less than 24 hours. Then Russian troops would ne pounded into the ground from the air in a manner of days. I predict about a week before they are out of the country... or what's left of them.

@Ice Tea Well, the Ukrainians do not publish verifiable figures, so it's best to be cautious with that. But 3:1 is an extremely favorable ratio in any case. I'd say this will go up to 5:1 in the coming 4 weeks since the best weapons have yet to reach the frontlines. It's all about firepower and range at this point of the war.
Paul Serdiuk
Paul Serdiuk Жыл бұрын
@Ice Tea It varies. Modern doctrines say it's foolish to attack enemy defenses with a fewer than 1:3 advantage because losses will be that high, and enemy cities need a 1:5 to 1:10 advantage (see Kyiv). A lot of the Donbass region was heavily fortified over the 8 years of war and breaking through it will take closer to 1:5 casualties. On the other hand, in the open fields with both sides manoeuvring and counter-attacking like it is in the South it's 1:1. Also take into account the fact that Russian logistics and casualty care are subpar, so more of their wounded are dying. Ukrainian IFAKs are substantially better than Russian med kits. So across the conflict it's on average 1:3 for Ukraine.

The only correction that I would suggest is the name of Azov unit that defended Mariupol. It is Azov Regiment of the National Guards of Ukraine. It was a battalion back in 2014. Now only kremlin media persist in calling it a "nationalistic battalion". Now russians put Mariupol prisoners from Azov regiment, Marines brigade and some other units through tortures, starvation and executions to revenge for their nearly 3-month resistance under siege.

I live in northern Poland. I remember first days of war. For the first week I couldn't concentrate and waited for any news. It was mostly mix of true news and Ukrainian propaganda. In all places you could hear about help that was organized by regular people. No one questioned that Ukrainians fought not only for their own freedom but also for ours. News of fierce resistance in all fronts not only by army but also civilians and rumors about thousands Ukrainian man working in Poland who immediately dropped their jobs to join the fight was absolutely jaw dropping and mobilizing. For me it changed the view of nation, from immigrants who simply work here and try do do their thing and have problems as everyone to a an oustanding example of resilence. It reminded me the old spirit of Cossacks against we fought and fought alongside with in the past. On the other hand in the every moment we expected that something may happen around Kaliningrad or Belarus forces will join the Russian attack and we could be in the face of choice or being forced to join the war. But it didn't happen and help for Ukraine started to flow. At the same time masks of Germany and France has dropped - we realized that nations that never truly felt the oppression of Russia will try to stop the war by any means to make business, even after Bucha and other places. This was the moment when we realized that war in Ukraine is a clash not only of interests but of civilisations. Immense support from US, and UK and other countries from region gives hope that Russia will grind herself down. We have over 400 years of enemnity. It strange to live in time of such a turmoil in close proximity of events. I have no doubts that today's events in Ukraine will change many things, not only in Europe but also other places. It already did.

The person that truly deserves a hero's medal in Ukraine is a 70-year old, mild-mannered, white-haired lady. I do not remember her name but Ukrainians certainly will. Singlehandedly, she walked around with a cell phone in her pocket. She casually observed where the Russian soldiers were repeatedly. Then she was able to walk away when the Ukrainians used her info to pulverize the Russians. She didn't just do this once, she did this over and over again. I heard that she died recently. I hope she will live on in the hearts and minds of all Ukrainians, just like the three little 11-year old girls that rode their bicycles and were responsible for the deaths of many Germans in WWII. I wish I could remember where they were from. I think they were captured and killed but I'm not sure.

What is the word for the studies of the science of teaching? Pedagogy, like the pedagogus in Ancient Rome. Our current model of teaching is a industrialization of a two thousand years old model. To make it worse the hegemonic model for the future is Piaget, an old model of 1930s that thinks kids mature like fruits, you just gotta wait them get less green so they can learn more. The best duo to combat this dumbness of an otherwise relatively better model is Vigotsky ... But Russian concepts will get ostracized by Western Cultures for a few decades now

Not only that, but also that i was speaking to some old people who just want to get paid and go home because they are tired of us teenagers. I guess the change must come from the top, or not at all.

Great video, as always, one thing I would say though, is that while it is true that they have a total military size of 900,000 only a fraction of that is combat troops, most of them are dealing with logistics, administration, and other activities associated with the military tail. Russia deployed the vast majority of their combat troops to ukraine, and saying they only deployed 200,000 out of 900,000 is a bit misleading.

Only in my hometown Sumy (The Easter offensive, right above Kharkiv), during 3 days, at the beggining of war, 7000 people volunteered and took guns to withstand russian nazis, plus 600 of the territorial defense battalion,... only in ONE 270k city. When I took my riffle I tought that we could win only couple weeks, but seeing everyday how much people are by my side and how others helps us with clothing, molotov cocktails and some millitary equipment, even hunting guns...your motivation driven up to clouds. We were surronded but fought and never gave up, making impudent sorties in nights mining outskirts and striking russian soldiers. City left intact, except bombings of couse. There are many stories like mine all over Ukraine, my friends in Kyiv, Chernihiv, Kharkiv, Kherson, took guns without hesitation and did their best. We needed 700k army, but before mobilization there were already half a million volunteers. This says it all.

I'm not sure where we get this idea - aside from being told it over and over. At least originally it was simply another war over Russia's disintegrating sphere of influence, as Putin tries to salvage what he can. In that, it wouldn't even begin to compare to Korea or Vietnam; and in most ways it's still a far stretch away from the brutalities in Yugoslavia. Its major features aren't unique either. Geo-politically its significance bears some comparison to Afghanistan; operationally it's strikingly similar to the Winter War. By that comparison, it may also have huge consequences. Even bigger than then... we all know how it could end up, if once again Russia's western enemies decide it's time to slay the bear for good. Hubris has long been the harbinger of disaster.

By & large, the video is accurate in all high-level stuff that matter long-term. Except army sizes are very wrong, of especially Russia -> waaaaaay smaller professional, attack-capable army; I’d say 300k-350k max, 200-250k deployed to Ukraine up until this day + 20-30k “Donbas” separatist army. Expect likely somewhat more tanks in the attack with Russia than the stated number, but likely way less planes operable & somewhat fewer helicopters as well. Expect ~50k troops already killed/ wounded/ captured & 30k deserted. Also somewhat misrepresented army of Ukraine (I’d say around 200k additional semi-trained mobilized reserve units actively fighting atm + substantially more being mobilized, equipped & trained, which is not true for Russia atm. Additionally, 1/4 to 1/3 fewer Ukrainian in-service tanks than stated here, by the start of the 2022 war; but now tank numbers are bolstered by NATO deliveries & captured Russian tanks. There is plenty missed in the video that is solidly provable by no-doubt video/photo evidence & a lot that is provable with context & “soft evidence” (testimonies, high-level Russian spy-informants), but for a 30-40 min condensed video, the highly important stuff is 95% covered.

Kudos. This video is very well done, and this series is a great idea. I'm envisioning a 'Yorktown' kind of army capture being the 'end' of this. Perhaps if the UA can retake Kherson and then seal off the bridges over the Dnipro river, they could trap a large portion of the Russian army there. Capturing like 10-20k troops could be the difference. That would be very hard for the Russian media to deny. Those soldiers have families that would want to know the truth. If Putin gets whacked, maybe a new Russian regime will want to play nice and retreat from the rest of the country. That's my version of a successful ending to this horrible war.
