Ex-Colonel Heusen: “Abandoning Kyiv is a shameful defeat. Russians may aim to conquest by May 9” VTM News

Former Colonel Roger Housen described the abandonment of Kyiv as a “shameful defeat” for Russia. He says so at VTM Nieuws. It is suspected that Russian forces will reposition themselves in eastern Ukraine. According to Heusen, the war in Ukraine will not last for years, said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Housen suspects that the Russians are aiming to occupy the Donbass region by 9 May. “This is Victory Day,” Hussein said.

“In the meantime, I think we can say that the initial plan, which is to overthrow the regime within two weeks and occupy a large part of Ukraine, has failed,” explains Hussein. “The Russians had to switch to plan (b) and in the meantime even plan (c) we can consider the abandonment of Kyiv as a shameful defeat for Russia. The next few weeks will show whether we can talk about humiliation.”

Housen suspects the Russians are changing positions. “There are indications that the forces around Kyiv are moving east via the railways to the Donbass region,” she said. This is a distance of about 600 to 700 kilometers, a process that takes a few days, maybe even a week and a half. It is likely that these 40,000-45,000 soldiers will be deployed from all over Kyiv in eastern Ukraine and try to expand the Donbass region. ”

Whether the Russians want to sit around surrender on their own terms is a big question mark. “If the Russians could extend Donetsk and Luhansk to the provincial borders and if a land bridge could be built over Mariupol in the south, the Kremlin might sit at the table,” Housen said.

Victory Day

The former colonel believes that the Kremlin aims to capture the Donbass region, the oblasts and the land bridge by May 9. “This is D-Day. The victory over the Nazis is commemorated annually on that date with a parade. I think by then the point is to say they have achieved their goals.”

More and more pictures of dead civilians appear after the Poetzia massacre. He. She The image of the dead woman with red nails is causing great outrage all over the world† According to Hosen, killing civilians may have been part of Russian war tactics, but there are currently very few independent reports to confirm this. There are still very few indications of this happening in other cities. We know that in 1999 the Russians did the same in the Chechen capital Grozny. And between 2015-2017 they also did it in Aleppo, Syria.”

Finally, Housen notes that local units at Bucha may have lost their foothold due to poor progress on the ground. For Russia, civilian casualties are part of the war. Ukraine will never trust Russia again. They will create an aversion to everything the Russians say and do. This country lost to Russia.”
