The YouTube video discusses how Ukraine's recent success in retaking territory lost to Russia in the earlier war may have opened the door to Kiev's success in resisting Russian aggression. If Russia fails, Putin may not be safe, and a full mobilization would put him in a good position.

  • 00:00:00 The video discusses Ukraine's counterattack against Russia, which was successful in retaking territory lost in the earlier war. Russia essentially handcuffed itself, allowing Ukraine to take advantage of its handicap. The longer version explains that Ukraine still has a war left to fight, but that's a story told over six Acts. In Act One, the targets for the counterattack were obvious--son and Curson were locations with desirable pickup and Russian military vulnerabilities. But in the early stages of the war, Russia captured it as a foothold to head toward Odessa. The other purpose was to further lock down Ukraine's access to the Black Sea. Keeping a presence in the city required resupply from the East, which in turn asked a lot from the bridges that crossed the nipro river. In Act Two, Russia's mobilization was unsuccessful, leading to the retreat of Russian forces from the key front after the opening month of the war. However, something was about to change.

However, the intelligence is spotty, it appears that Ukraine spent July and August high marsing the stroganoff out of them. That's right Ukraine has not yet touched Russia's extremely valuable bridge to Crimea, but has no problem blasting their own. Although the bridges are still standing, military vehicles cannot pass. Russia has tried to solve this problem with makeshift pontoon bridges but Ukraine is getting intelligence about them and striking them. It's still possible to get things in and out of Curson, it's just slow.
  • 00:10:00 The video discusses Ukraine's counterattack against Russian forces in the east, which has been successful in limiting Russia's ability to control territory. However, the retreats of Russian forces may be a sign that Putin is preparing for a decisive battle, which could result in his leadership being in an untenable position. Additionally, Ukraine's lightning tactics in the north may become bogged down in the mud of rasputitsa, which favors the defender.
