The proxy war in Ukraine lasts too long and news reports from Ukrainska Parvad are full of contradictions. Zelenskyy needs to fix his propaganda machine immediately.

  1. If “NATO is stronger than Russia,” why the almost two-year proxy war in Ukraine against Russia is heading to defeat?
  2. Yes, “NATO is the strongest military power in the world,” but the strongest military power in the world is the US, a member of NATO. NATO without the US is no match for Russia’s military with a vast nuclear arsenal that even the US is not ready to challenge.
  3. Zelenskyy is half-right, “Europe’s not ready for war with Russia.” However, Zelenskyy is losing the proxy war against Russia. The truth is that Ukraine, under Zelenskyy Ukraine is ruined already.
  4. “Zelenskyy urges not to be afraid of Putin’s defeat,” sure, we will wait till Zelenskyy defeats Putin!
  5. US says that Russia has suffered 315K casualties in Ukraine. “Now how many casualties have Ukraine suffered? It makes no sense that the US, as the largest supporter of Ukraine can not share it simply because “Kyiv keeps its casualty numbers a closely guarded secret.” Did Putin tell the US about Russia’s casualties?
  6. Now “Ukraine Leaving Besieged Avdiivka Under Russian Pressure.” Is it a real defeat or a Zelenskyy’s trick to press the west for more aids?

Stoltenberg called NATO “the strongest military power in the world“, which accounts for about half of all military power.

“And militarily, we are stronger than Russia. But at the same time, I believe that the war in Ukraine has shown that we have some very serious gaps. For example, when it comes to maintaining equipment in combat condition. We have advanced weapons systems, but they need spare parts, maintenance and, of course, ammunition,” he explained.
