You fell for the feint again!
Putin does not want to win. He did it all only to grow strong men in Ukraine. Strong men bring good times!
He knew that Russia is hopeless. Just look at the abortion rates.
Russia 53.7 (the highest in the world)
So much does Putin love the Slavic Traditional future that he sacrificed Russia to give Ukraine a boost!
What’s crazy about your post is that Putin’s war has gone so badly that your post could potentially be true.
Sucks for Russia. :)
"You fell for the feint again!"
It's starting to be a habit…. ;0)
That’s a similar iconic photograph of the men at Iwo Jima raising the American flag.
What is winning? Only losing 40% of your infrastructure and your people?
Ask the British.
It’s all true. He did it for 4d chess!
See the figures here:
>According to a group of scientists acting under the supervision of Russia’s chief urologist, 90 percent of Russian men complain about erectile dysfunction symptoms.
It is very brave of him to go down in history as a loser dork when he himself knew that downing Russia is for the greater good!
Except: “It is unclear exactly where the footage was filmed though it was likely taken...” Daily Mail strikes again. BYO border market and pose with it wherever.
Krosan is right, Gonzo.
This was all a Putin faint (sic).
All the special operation was done in a Moscow studio like the moon landings or Columbus landing on Hispaniola — that’s what our friendly freeper Putinistas will tell us anyway
Winning is staying alive and independent and not being assimilated into Muscowy.
"What is winning?"
Certainly not living on your knees…….

⚡️⚡️⚡️#Inside Our source in the OP said that Zelensky did not give permission for the withdrawal of troops from Severodonetsk, any retreat will be perceived as a victory for the enemy and may affect future battles for Donbass.

#Inside Our source in the OP said that the General Staff again asked Zelensky for permission to withdraw troops from Severodonetsk, which could repeat the fate of Mariupol. In the coming days, Russian troops can take the city into an operational encirclement, at the moment there are almost four thousand soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

⚡️⚡️⚡️#Inside Our source in the OP said that the conflict around the defense of Severodonetsk continues to grow on Bankovaya, which, according to the technologists of the Office of the President, is a new symbol of resistance to Russian aggression. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine insists on the fact that it is necessary to withdraw troops to Slavyansk and Kramotorsk in order not to repeat the situation with Mariupol, where a 25,000-strong group of Ukrainian troops was encircled, which was crushed by Russian troops.
Valery Zaluzhny is sure that it makes no sense to lose the most combat-ready units because of one city, but the political leadership does not support his position.

The Russian army continues to encircle the Ukrainian grouping in the Donbass
On May 15, Russian troops established control over the villages of Yarovaya and Drobyshevo in the DPR. Separate pockets of resistance still remain, but it is already clear that a large Ukrainian grouping of troops in Liman will fall into an operational encirclement. The leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine itself deprived the defending group of supply routes by blowing up the Seversky Donets bridge in the direction of Slavyansk

Finland’s entry into NATO will certainly lead to the emergence of “new factors” in its relations with China - Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian.
The Americans allegedly offered Russia pro-Russian territories in Ukraine for a ceasefire But wasn’t Ukraine winning?

They had only “muffled” one rat move, when, in the course of squeezing the enemy from the periphery, they discovered the next one. What you see is that very periphery. It encircles Azovstal for many kilometers, keeping the enemy able to get out “into the fresh air.”
Our task is to localize him in the zone of the main workshops, which are successfully destroyed by aircraft, and force him to surrender. As long as he maneuvers even in a narrow strip around the plant, he has a chance to evade air strikes that are effective against a concentrated, not “smeared” enemy.
The first ten military men with white flags came out of “our” tunnel, - let’s press on.
Go and see

If that’s his motive, he really is nuts.
Is Al Jazeera better for you? Would love to see your source that contests, the Russian retreat from Kharkiv.
Latest Ukraine updates: Russia withdrawing from around Kharkiv
"Winning" is, when the war is finally over, being the one who dictates the conditions of peace.
That Ukraine has lost blood and treasure is entirely the fault of the evil Russian invaders, and is certainly nothing to crow about, freespirit2012
I am not contesting anything; I am noting that with the Daily Mail, the hype very often is not backed up by sourcing sufficient to judge the accuracy of the story.
