The last article is a good one.
Gives a plausible reason why it might be a planned withdrawal.
But begs the question, Is Putins pups too thinly spread or planning a assault elsewhere?
It could be both, mole.
Big Serge is idiotic agitprop. If you want someone to curse, curse Victoria Nuland who is most likely the person who hired the sniper of Maidan Square. Now that Russia has been defeated on the battlefield Azerbaijan feels free to attack Armenia. Blame Victoria Nuland for that. Ultimately Russia is to blame for foisting Obama on the US: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/03/russia_china_the_torpedoes_circle_back.html
David, RUS haven’t been defeated yet.
“Russia has been defeated on the battlefield”. Lol, sometimes this blog has its moments of hilarity.

You are right, but if Russia is “defeated” in the proper sense, then Russia is finished as a power to reckon with, let alone a world power.
What could happen in that case, is anyone’s guess but could be nasty.
I hope the Russians managed to evacuate the civilians from that territory reoccupied by Ukraine forces to spare them from another Bucha event.
From what I can gather Old Bloke, they did not evacuate the ethnic Russians in either the Kharkov or Kherson regions, which seems pretty cynical on Putin’s part. The very fact that the Russians chose to withdraw is a political and moral defeat. But its pretty clear it was a planned tactical withdrawal designed to inflict maximum casualties on the Ukes, and is probably a militarily sensible move. It has tidied up their lines and absorbed the worst the Ukes can throw at them.
