Russian Soldier Reveals Collapsing Putin Army: ‘Everyone Is Out For Themselves’


President Volodymyr Zelensky just released a captured cellphone call of a Russian soldier talking about abysmal conditions. The military attackers’ communications are exceedingly leaky, and the soldier said everything was in free-fall.

The Russian troop was in the Kharkiv region complaining about the military, “everyone is out for themselves,” The Daily Beast reported:

‘I imagined all of this differently, because there’s no kind of organization. I thought there was an army here, but it’s not an army here. Everyone is out for themselves.’

Zelenskyy’s military intelligence announced on Wednesday that the Russian’s 5th Separate Tank Brigade simply refused to fight. Instead, they surrendered. Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine’s Defense Ministry commented about the terrible shortages in the Russian military:

‘At the same time, a catastrophic shortage of personnel is seen in the units taking part in the war against Ukraine.’

Zelenskyy said, according to the English-speaking Ukrainian The Kyiv Independent war reporter Illia Ponomarenko’s tweet:

‘I won’t give any specifics, but we will drive the invaders to the border. Zelenskyy urged Russians to go home or surrender, otherwise “they will deal with our defenders, who will not stop until they liberate everything that belongs to Ukraine.”‘

When Putin first tried to capture the Ukrainian capitol, troops were abandoning their posts, because heir rations were from 2001 and obviously spoiled. Ponomarenko tweeted:

‘Ukraine’s stunning counteroffensive success has shattered Russia’s reputation as a military superpower and dramatically increased international faith in Ukraine’s ability to win the war.’

And things are getting worse. The Ukrainians just blew up a key bridge across the Dnieper River ending the Russians’ resupply route for food, water, and munitions. And Zelenskyy’s military has gone on the offensive in Eastern Ukraine and captured a landmass equivalent to the size of Delaware. The calls from Putin’s “special military operation” complaining have increased exponentially.

Putin scoured the countryside pulling in ill-trained men and lied to them about what they thought was a “training exercise.” The Russian president has also been handing out a prisoner get-out-of-jail-free card if inmates would go to the battlefront as cannon fodder. In addition, he has imported mercenaries with no links to the effort. The U.S. estimates 80,000 Russian fighters have died thus far.

Ponomarenko also tweeted:

‘My latest: explaining the Battle of Kherson Oblast. “The loss of Kupiansk and Izium, the two transportation hubs, pulls the plug on Russia’s chances of seizing the entire region of Donbas.”’

As Ukraine advances, its enemy’s troops have taken any form of transportation they could steal, including bicycles, and abandoned their equipment and tanks. Even the state-run media has begun to criticize the war effort.  The Moscow Times wrote:

‘Russian forces near Izyum in the Kharkiv region lost half of their equipment in just four days this month.’

A Russian channel, Telegram, indicated that the Ukrainian “enemy will act more skillfully” and end communications in the dark of the night:

‘Since no one is hearing our message and no one is preparing defense for large [Russian] cities, and the enemy at the same time is concentrating huge forces on the border with the Belgorod region, there is a great probability that they may significantly take one of the large cities under their control.’

Even though the Russian military brought portable crematoriums with them to hide the number of deaths, they have been overloaded. And Putin simply has not been able to keep the true numbers of deaths a secret.
