Russia Losing Information War with US
New York (RichTVX.com) — According to a new report from the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW), Vladimir Putin is preparing for a major new offensive that could begin as early as February or March 2023. Kremlin insiders have told Bloomberg that Putin is confident that Russia’s tolerance for heavy military losses will allow it to win the war in the long run, despite setbacks. The ISW forecasts that the Kremlin is likely to be preparing for major strategic operations, most likely in the Luhansk region, in the next six months. Russia’s recent limited ground attacks in Zaporozhye could be aimed at diverting Ukrainian forces and setting the stage for an offensive in the Luhansk region. British intelligence has also reported that Russia’s losses in the January 1st strike on a building housing the military in Makiivka near Donetsk likely exceeded 300 people. The Russian Ministry of Defense took a rare step and publicly admitted that it had suffered losses, declaring 89 killed. This difference between the acknowledged number of victims and the likely true number highlights the widespread presence of disinformation in public statements by the Russian authorities. Russia is ready for nuclear war, the State Duma said. Deputy Yevgeny Fedorov has also stated that Russia has lost in the information confrontation with the United States. The European Commission has plans to create a special office of the international prosecutor’s office to investigate alleged war crimes in Ukraine. The RAND Corporation, in its report “How to Avoid a Long War: US Policy and the Trajectory of the Russian-Ukrainian Conflict,” has concluded that prolonging the war is not in the national interests of the United States.
