It is clear that on the battlefield things are going very bad for the Ukrainians.

Kiev guessing game, as Putin and Shoigu land in Belarus
This is reality about electricity infrastructure in Ukraine, especially Kiev.
Power engineers said that in Kiev there is enough electricity for only 20% of the population
Энергетики заявили, что в Киеве хватает электроэнергии лишь для 20% населения
YASNO General Director Sergey Kovalenko said that long-term power outages in Kyiv are a reality, as there is enough electricity in the city for only a fifth of consumers.
He wrote about this on his Facebook page.
According to him, the situation in Kyiv is very difficult. Today, all three groups are almost completely turned off at the same time, since there is only enough electricity for 20% of the population.
“Are long blackouts in Kyiv real now? Yes, 10 hours without electricity is, unfortunately, a reality today. It is difficult to predict how quickly we will return to stabilization,” Sergey Kovalenko noted.
Recall that several districts were switched off today at 6:30 in the morning and have been without electricity for 14 hours, and the mayor of Kiev, Vitaliy Klitschko, said that the shortage of electricity in the capital is currently 50% .
This interview with retired US Army Special Forces and Marines Colonel Richard Black makes this clear
US Col. R. Black: Battle Lost for Ukrainians – Their Losses at Bakhmut Are Massive & They Have Seen Nothing Yet
“The battle for the Ukrainians has been lost and the war has already been decided,” said retired US Army Special Forces and Marines Colonel Richard Black in his double intervention.
As he pointed out during a conference of the Schiller Institute, the battle in Artyomovsk is disastrous for the Armed Forces of Ukraine without counting the fourfold increase in the troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation by the beginning of 2023.
“Ukrainian troops are being thrown into a death trap in Bakhmut by the thousands and seem to have no solution.
“Russia is winning in Bakhmut, Ukraine is losing, and this shows that this is becoming a major strategic development of the war, ” the colonel said.
Black noted that the number of dead Ukrainian soldiers is staggering and the population of the country will not allow to replace the losses in manpower.
The conflict is lost, the colonel concluded.
At another point the American Colonel states:
“I would just say to the Ukrainians ‘be careful because if you think things have been bad until now, you will see something that is far beyond anything you have imagined so far.'”
They lose 500 to 700 soldiers a day!
Ukraine is losing more men a day in Bakhmut (alone) than the United States lost in a month during the Vietnam War.
And Ukraine has a smaller population than the USA!

It’s got the full force of the Yenisei
Its will is stronger than the Ural mountains
It’ll scatter our enemies into dust in an instant
It’s ready to carry out the sentence
The US’s air defence is no hindrance to it
It is not afraid of sanctions
For the Sarmat there is only pleasure
To trouble NATO’s dreams
From Mother Russia Sarmats are Sarmats are staring into the surface
At the United States
Meanwhile, in the United States
