I have noticed that in the our mainstream media the operational history of the war is totally misrepresented. They make it look like the Ukrainians gradually 'pushed back' the Russian forces with successful offensive operations in depth. In reality this is deluded fiction that is easily disproven.
Blah blah blah.

Izyum. Lyman.

It is very obvious from a day to day basis that the two major Russian 'retreats' are actually planned withdrawals. The only 'rout' and real Ukrainian breakthrough was at Kharkiv recently. But soon after they performed a planned withdrawal and the entire Kharkiv' front vanished.
Who would be dumb enough to believe that Izyum was a planned retreat ? The sheer amount of captured RU equipment shows there was nothing planned about it. it was a rout.

▪️From August to October, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost more than 9.5 thousand people there. The losses of the Russian army are 7 to 8 times less than the Ukrainian ones.

▪️More than115 thousand people left the combat zone in the Kherson region.

The cost of one HESA Shahed 136 has been claimed to be as low as $20,000-10,000 each. Haven't found claims for Lancet prices- the other wunderwaffen of the month.

The AA missiles that are used to shoot them down cost in the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars each.

Casualty figure estimates from the US Joint Chiefs of Staff:

100,000 x Russian soldiers dead or wounded

100,000 x Ukrainian soldiers dead or wounded

40,000 x Ukrainian civilians dead


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-63580372


I can't see how this can go on indefinitely from the perspective of both sides. Something has to give soon.

The difference is, Putin probably doesn't care about his losses. Whereas, Zelensky and his Western backers don't have that luxury. At what point do you start to think about a negotiated peace?

With 140,000 dead, the economy in ruins, cities and towns reduced to rubble and a hard and cold winter approaching. Which the Russians will use to unleash further terror attacks on the civilian population.

Elon Musk's peace plan is a pretty good outcome for both sides. The politicians just don't want to admit it.

No doubt!

As for Kherson, I still don't completely trust the withdrawal claims from the Kremlin.
Certainly, the UKR will send in recon units to carefully examine the situation.

At the very least, I would expect a cutthroat like Putin to leave behind a lot of booby
traps and snipers.

Actually not quite the estimates in your link:
You're looking at well over 100,000 Russian soldiers killed and wounded," Gen Milley said. "Same thing probably on the Ukrainian side.

Interestingly much higher than the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) verified total of 6,490 civilian deaths as of November 6, 2022. Maybe the US has some knowledge of how many Ukrainian civilians the Ruffians have massacred in the currently orcified territories and among those deported to Putinistan.

Probably well over 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers killed and wounded doesn't translate into 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers killed. Due to the Ukrainians possessing superior military medicine and respect of human life, their wounded-to-killed ratio is in all probability quite high; quite possibly a multiple of the Ruffian ratio.

Musky plan would be an excellent outcome for the criminal aggressors. Sure, treaties with genocidal maniacs who have no respect for international law... Time warp to Munich 1938, Budapest 1994 or just about any Soviet non-aggression pact pre-WW2 (Excepting the Molotov-Ribbentrop). The Ukrainians would just be able to catch a breather before the Orcs invade again.

This figure you post is actually one of the more realistic ones but the Ukrainian number is far too low.

The Russian casualties are definitely nowhere similar to the Ukrainian. The Uk/US/Ukrainian claims of Russian casualties are propaganda, the Russian army in Ukraine had nowhere the OOB for those type of losses.

On the other hand the Ukrainians do and their defense minister had admitted that their military deaths in the tens of thousands a few months ago. This is also consistent with the immense disparity of weight of fire.

The Russian military deaths at this point are likely an even split between Russian army vs proxy (separatist, PMC) but with reservists flowing in the Russian army's proportion will rise. The PMCs, DPR and LPR has done a disproportionate amount of close combat compared to the 'Artillery army with tanks'.
