    Rail map of Ukraine. I think you can see how there might be... issues using the northern route to supply Kherson and Crimea...

    I know a loooooot of Ukis by now. Its amazing to see how internet savvy all ages are, even babushka. They love their memes and use a lot of 'western' songs/music as template for ukr singing. I asked when this started and apparantly around 2012 and spiked after 2014 Crimea invasion.

    Also: now is maybe the time considering their momentum. Take what's of strategic importance and reach/settle in stable defense positions before winter brings it to a halt. And before the new conscripts are fed into the meatgrinder in masses and slow down the advance.

    Not to mention that feeding those conscripts into the meatgrinder just got a lot harder.

    I wonder if the UA is in a position to make a drive towards Melitopol? They don't even have to actually capture it, just interdict the road & rail links, and that'd make the occupation of Kherson and Crimea literally unsupportable. There is that convenient inlet south of Melitopol that makes it something of a chokepoint. If they could pull that off, I think we'd start to see some large scale surrenders - especially after a couple of weeks when things start running out and winter begins to bite.

    I think the whole winter will slow fighting down its a misconception. The next phase is Rasputina, mud season. That will force an operational pause and the ukr forces are IMO currently driving a bit harder than they should without that season coming, since they expect a coming forced pause and the opportunity then to reconstitute for a few weeks.

    After, when the frost comes and the ground freezes and hardens again, Ukraine will be able to go back on the offensive since they will have winter gear. Russian forces will then suffer under the twin pressure of winter and the renewed offenses.

    It is going to majorly suck for the civilians in the occupied areas though. Russia will do the same fuck all to help them as they did before.

    If the rus leadership gave a single fuck about their soldiers, they would pull them back immediately but, well, they also wouldn't have started the whole shitshow in the first place and everybody would have been happier for it. Alas.

    With supply chains going to be a nightmare on a whole new level for russia. And if they can't procure winter uniforms.
    Ukraine can't let them hunker down and survive the cold.
    Now more than ever, they have to bring the full force on the invaders.

    Nope, Rasputitsa/bezdorizhzhia comes first. However it’s apparently less heavy in Ukraine.

    It's the soviet seasons; cold, dark and miserable; cold, wet and miserable; 2 weeks of decent weather; cold, wet and miserable.

    There's so much mud, it needs two seasons. Also, I messed up the spelling, rasputitsa. Interestingly the german wiki article mentions autumn and spring mud, while the english version doesn't really mention times of year.
