Similar to what happened during the COVID pandemic, truth is the first casualty in any war. However, some are suggesting that the tide might be turning in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as it claims to have retaken a city lost to the Russian forces.
At the very least, experts state that Russia’s advancement has ‘ground to a halt.’
The Daily Mail explains:
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine appears to have ground to a halt with no significant territory captured despite a weekend of heavy fighting, with Kyiv’s men claiming to have taken out dozens of helicopters and recaptured a city this morning – sparking hopes that the unlikeliest of victories may be on the cards. […]
US intelligence believes Russia has committed 95 per cent of the invasion force it had assembled on Ukraine’s border to the fight, meaning significant reinforcements to push its attacks forward are unlikely to come soon – and could simply run into many of the same logistical problems that plagued the early assault.
That has prompted some – including UK general Admiral Sir Tony Radakin – to predict that Russia could actually lose the war. Asked by the BBC on Sunday whether victory for Putin’s men was ‘inevitable’, as many had predicted before the fighting started, he responded: ‘No.’
And coincidentally, for the FIRST TIME since the invasion began, Russia has raised the prospect of halting the attack under three conditions:
- Ukraine does not join NATO;
- Ukraine cedes the region of Donbass; and
- Ukraine acknowledges it has no claim to Crimes.
Some have suggested that Russia would not be offering this deal if it was winning the war.
Though Ukraine has stopped Russia’s advance, it does not mean that Ukraine has the military might to drive Russia’s army out of the parts of the country it has seized.

Russian soldier abandoning equipment
If the war was going well for Putin, you wouldn’t be seeing abandoned Russian tanks, armoured personnel carriers, self-propelled howitzers, and mobile anti-aircraft missile batteries scattered along roads.
Not only is the equipment running out of gas and breaking down, but reports are also circulating that Russian soldiers are purposefully punching holes in their gas tanks:
Russians are outraged by Putin’s invasion:
The video, below, allegedly shows mothers of Russian soldiers angrily confronting the governor of Siberia’s Kemerovo region. They are “asking if their sons were ‘lied to’ and being used as ‘cannon fodder.'”
In other words, keep praying.
