Der russische Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine dauert jetzt 100 Tage an. Die größte Fehleinschätzung, sowohl Russlands, aber auch des Westens: Wie viel länger als erwartet die ukrainischen Streitkräfte dem als überlegen angesehenen Gegner Widerstand leisten können, und wie wenig Russland erreicht hat, gemessen an den verkündeten Kriegszielen. Der Sammler am 3. Juni 2022:
• Diese Entwicklung fasst auch das britische Intel Update zusammen:
Today marks the 100th day since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Russian forces failed to achieve their initial objectives to seize Kyiv and Ukrainian centres of government. Staunch Ukrainian resistance and the failure to secure Hostomel airfield in the first 24 hours led to Russian offensive operations being repulsed.
Following the failure of the initial plan, through false planning assumptions and poor tactical execution, Russia adapted its operational design to focus on the Donbas.
Russia is now achieving tactical success in the Donbas. Russian forces have generated and maintained momentum and currently appear to hold the initiative over Ukrainian opposition.
Russia controls over 90% of Luhansk Oblast and is likely to complete control in the next two weeks. Russia has achieved these recent tactical successes at significant resource cost, and by concentrating force and fires on a single part of the overall campaign.
Russia has not been able to generate manoeuvre or movement on other fronts or axes, all of which have transitioned to the defensive.
Measured against Russia’s original plan, none of the strategic objectives have been achieved. In order for Russia to achieve any form of success will require continued huge investment of manpower and equipment, and is likely to take considerable further time.

• Das Briefing des russischen Verteidigungsministeriums. Auffällig darin: wie schon am Vortag ändert sich der Charakter dieses Briefings, es werden eben nicht nur Fakten – bzw. was Russland als solche ansieht – zur militärischen Lage vorgetragen; zunehmend werden Propagandaelemente hinzugefügt, wie hier am Schluss. Bislang hatte das russische Verteidigungsministerium die trockene militärische Nachrichtenlage von den Agitprop-Elementen weitgehend getrennt, das scheint nicht mehr zu gelten:
High-precision air-based missiles of the Russian Aerospace Forces have hit 21 areas of concentration of AFU manpower and military equipment during the day.
Operational-tactical, army and unmanned aviation have hit 37 areas of Ukrainian manpower and military equipment concentration.
The attacks have resulted in the elimination of more than 360 nationalists and 49 weapons and military equipment including 1 detection and airspace control radar station in Slavyansk, Donetsk People’s Republic.
Also 13 Ukrainian tanks and infantry fighting vehicles, 1 Osa-AKM anti-aircraft missile system have been destroyed near Bakhmut, as well as 2 mortar batteries, 2 Grad multiple rocket launchers, 8 artillery mounts, 26 special vehicles, and 4 missile and artillery weapon depots near Soledar, Dzerzhinsk, Yakovlevka and Bakhmut.

Against the backdrop of Kiev’s political catastrophe in Mariupol and military failures in Donbass, the Kiev regime, with British financial support, has organised the production of „morale raise“ videos for Western and Ukrainian audiences.
In particular, on May 28, staged video was filmed near Meshkovka, Nikolaev Region, of the alleged „high efficiency“ of the use of Western weaponry by Ukrainian nationalists.
To add more drama to the future film, at the insistence of British supervisors, a re-enactment of never-existing battle between Ukrainian Nazis and outnumbered „Russian soldiers“ was created on the set.
The roles of „opponents“ of the Ukrainian Nazis in the staged short film were performed by members of the local territorial defence unit wearing red armbands.
In the absence of trophy Russian equipment, the mock enemy appears in the frame using Ukrainian APCs and armoured vehicles.
The next video shoot is scheduled for June 5 and 6. The videos will focus on staged testimonies of „ordinary Ukrainians“ accusing Russia of allegedly deliberately shelling civilian populated areas.
