In my opinion if the Russian military was allowed to do the job without political interference, they would have got the job done weeks ago. I understand Putin’s game was to do as little damage to infrastructure and civilian life as possible, but unfortunately the Ukies don’t see it that way and they are still killing civilians in Donesk and Lugansk.

But those delays by the Ukraine are costing them more and more permanent loss of territory. So perhaps in the long run the Eastern Half of the present Ukraine coming under complete Russian control will make for a more stable long term solution.

Sergei Shoigu, Maria Zakharova, and Olga Skabeyeva are three very fascinating members of the Russian Hierarchy. I pay attention to what they say. 🙂

The taking of Odessa ensures direct access to Transnistria. This would be a huge geopolitical gain for Russia and solve a problem which has existed since the fall of USSR. Although I do not believe that Russia would seek to incorporate Transnistria, it would “clarify the thinking” of the leadership in Moldova and likely make them more predisposed to dealing directly with Russia.

There are reports that Moldova has allowed NATO to post troops in the country against their constitution. I want this war over ASAP.
