The Kremlin will consider a second attack on Kyiv, it was revealed Friday A Russian independent press organization based in LatviaMedusa. With the advance of Russian troops in the Donbass region, Vladimir Putin’s regime not only recognizes a second attempt to conquer the Ukrainian capital, but also believes in victory before the end of the year.
Two sources linked to the Kremlin and one close to Vladimir Putin confirmed this to Medusa The idea of a second attack on Kyiv was also prevalent among the leaders of the main party in Russia.
Russian leaders will have set minimum and maximum goals for declaring victory over Ukraine. The bottom line, as explained by Meduza, goes through Land conquest in Donbass – Something that Russian forces are close to achieving, with 95% of the area owned by Moscow forces.
On the other hand, the bigger plan involves the conquest of Kyiv. According to Medusa’s sources, the main Kremlin leaders associated with the main party of the country did not abandon the idea of capturing the Ukrainian capital.
“Let’s crush them [os ucranianos] In the end, one of the sources said. “It is likely that the entire conflict will be over by the end of the fall.. “
The sources were not clear about the planned strategy for the occupation of Kyiv, but Medusa previously stated Moscow will not be able to achieve this goal with “a little bloodshed”.
Until now, hired soldiers were mostly used to fight. “There are enough contract soldiers to make relatively slow progress through Ukraine,” one Kremlin-linked source explained. “But recruits can be used if you need to move quickly. After all, it’s an army.”
The leaders associated with the Kremlin do not entertain the idea that the countries of the West will continue to support Ukraine, both financially and militarily, with the same force and for much longer: “It’s a lot of money and a lot of weapons. They need both for themselves‘, defended one of the sources.
For now, it appears that little is happening on the front line. Another source told Medusa the Russian army is seizing some small towns and facing various obstacles. But this is happening because the Ukrainians did not immediately surrender, as many believed. So, yes, the lightning attack failed, and some Muslim accounts failed, but that doesn’t mean that victory isn’t possible.”
Russia launched a military attack on Ukraine on February 24 that killed nearly 4,000 civilians, according to the United Nations. However, the actual numbers are expected to be higher.
