Several people have sent this video interview requesting opinion. The video reflects an interview between two Australians. The interviewer is a podcaster the person being interviewed explains his background on the ground in Ukraine as “officially” an “aid worker,” however, what he describes is more like a mercenary.
The interview is rather lengthy and starts at 02:13 with a question about what is happening in Bakhmut in the Eastern Ukraine fighting battlefield. The unknown Australian merc in the interview describes the Russians overwhelming the Ukraine forces in most battles. The Ukrainian military units have made several strategic mistakes that have played into the hands of the more capable Russian forces.
The main Russian element being described is the Wagner group who are well known to be brutal and strategic special force fighters. The interview is from a pro-Ukraine, pro-western alliance perspective. However, in the bigger picture the Ukraine military units are being ground down by attrition, despite the massive amount of aid being delivered by NATO allies. The description is a rather brutal assessment of the devastation created by horrific modern warfare.
Summary: Ukraine not winning. Wagner PMC/Russian tactics and technology vs. Ukraine. Chinese tech advisors helping Russians. Non-existant Medi-vac. Western Military Aid Stolen 60% off the top 40% sold on black market. Russian Artillery Domination. Ukrainian Officers Incompetence. Ukrainian Soldiers Lack Basic Equipment.
