Lol, so much projection in your post
I don't have to project. PF Russia haters' posts are direct evidence. I didn't call Russian "mongols", "barbarians", and "orcs".
Russians here and out there have more class and freely admit that the Ukrainians are fierce and worthy opponents. I didn't say "enemy" deliberately. Their enemies are in the DC and Londonstan.
Russia is retreating; Ukraine is advancing.
Then you can calculate the speed and project when CDL will be in Ukraine again. Go ahead, "project", and give us the ETA when you are done...
Bakhmut is literally the only significant gain Russia has made
You excluded one major if not the main gain: killing a lot of Ukrainians. Russia's tactic is slow attrition, not blitzkriegs or shock and awe. Russia knows that Euros are ballless chickenshits who, like Poles, talk brave but will do nothing other than dump mil stuff they don't need on their proxies in Ukraine.
Do you know why you don't need any tanks, artillery, and F-16s? It's because you are on the American military welfare and because you know damn well that Russia has zero interest and no capability to be a threat to you with your 6 to 1 advantage.
