Only four days ago, we published an article about the methods used to hand out draft notices in Ukraine today. In the last few days, the situation has moved to a new level of irrationality.
Men of all ages are simply being kidnapped from the streets of Ukrainian cities and villages. Ukrainian social media reports that, for example, in Dnipropetrovsk, men have even been seized at the entrances to metro stations during air-raid alerts. Earlier it was reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ general staff agreed with the presidential office to hand out draft notices to car drivers during police stops.
The drive to mobilize has become relentless, given that the General Staff has increased plans for mobilization to 200,000 people.
Kiev is preparing for a massive offensive in spring 2023. It is for this operation that NATO countries are now sending main battle tanks and other military equipment to Ukraine.
The real aim is not, supposedly, to create two new tank battalions, but to form a strike mechanized corps that can breach the front line and drive a deep wedge into Russian-held territory. The capabilities of this new corps are estimated at up to 60,000 men, 250 main battle tanks, up to 1,000 IFVs and APCs, and 100 SPAs. In all likelihood the expensive Western equipment will be operated by NATO crews. There is no time and resources to train Ukrainian crews.
Men are not being drawn off the streets of Ukrainian cities to serve in this corps. They are destined for territorial defence brigades, which will undertake the first wave of attacks. In other words, they will become simple cannon fodder. Without such sacrificial troops, the new offensive would not succeed. The valued troops of the new corps would only suffer heavy losses in the first phase of the operation, making it impossible to implement NATO’s plans to dissect the Russian grouping in the Donbass or to break through to Crimea.
The territorial defence brigades and motorized infantry brigades formed from mobilized people will tear up the Russian defences first. If enough of these formations are gathered, they will be able to break through the first line of defence, obviously at a cost of colossal losses.
Next, the cadre brigades of the AFU, armed with Soviet-era vehicles, are set to go into battle. They are destined to die pushing through the Russian defenses and in battle with Russian mobile units. But if successful, they will pave the way for the new mechanized corps equipped with modern Western weapons, to break through the Russian lines cleanly. There will also be diversionary offensives, in other directions, to hold back the redeployment of reserves.
In the end, NATO seeks to implement one of two scenarios – either to reach Crimea and ideally break into the peninsula, or to cut off the DPR/LPR from the Russian Federation, as was planned in 2014, i.e. to destroy one of the two groupings of the Russian Armed Forces.
Whatever the situation, tens of thousands of Ukrainian men are doomed to die in the coming months in the interests of global capital. And then… and then the exchange of nuclear strikes is likely to follow, whoever presses the button first. World War Three has begun, it is already an obvious fact.
