A Russian military leader has called the invasion of Ukraine a failure as armed forces send a blunt message to Vladimir Putin.

The Russian military commander Igor Girkin, who has strong links to the Kremlin, admitted that Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine has backfired, on live TV.

Commander Igor Girkin, also known as Igor Strelkov, an army veteran and former FSB officer, further stressed that Ukraine has been successful in launching a fightback against Russia.

Mr. Girkin told OSN TV that Ukraine’s surprisingly successful fightback will never be featured in the Kremlin’s own reports of the ongoing war.

“29 days of ‘special military operation’ have passed. 

“Nowhere, in any direction, has strategic success been achieved, but only operational successes.

“Moreover, the enemy is relatively successful in mobilizing and beginning to counterattack.

“This, of course, Konashenkov never mentions in his reports,” Mr. Girkin said.

“Unfortunately, I can state that my most pessimistic predictions that we will be drawn into a bloody, push and pull, long, exhausting and extremely dangerous war for the Russian Federation, have been fully justified at the moment,” he added.

Mr. Girkin played a key role in the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and later led the separatist armed forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic in eastern Ukraine.

Mr. Girkin’s adviser, Igor Druz, In a statement last week warned that President Putin could be forced to resign if he fails to take Ukraine.

This comes amidst rumors that some Russian elites are allegedly conspiring to overthrow Russian President Vladimir Putin and “restore economic ties” with the West, according to Ukrainian intelligence.

  1. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. This blog is definitely rather handy since I’m at the moment creating an internet floral website – although I am only starting out therefore it’s really fairly small, nothing like this site. Can link to a few of the posts here as they are quite. Thanks much. Zoey Olsen
