CIA AP released the strangest headline this weekend: Kyiv prepares for a winter with no heat, water or power.
Whaaaat?! I was told, repeatedly, that it was Russia that was completely defeated and collapsing. I mean, check any troll on Telegram: 300 dead marines upset with MOD over fake battle loses. Etc. Now, we’re informed that Russia is just a-rolling away with missiles and bombs they were supposed to run out of back in April. Something doesn’t add up. It’s like we were lied to.
But yes, this will be a taxing winter for the Ukies and much of Europe. Pay attention to the lessons of the next few months because they will most likely offer a preview of America’s very near future.
