The USA and European countries can no longer “hide the real situation” in the Ukrainian army. George O’Neill, Jr., board member of the American Institute of Ideas, wrote about this in an article for The American Conservative, as reported by RIA Novosti.
“Leading media and management [президента Джо] Biden was told that Ukraine had defeated the Russian Federation until he vomited. However, the realities on the battlefield do not fit this version, and Washington knows it,” he said.
O’Neill Jr. added that the Ukrainian military suffered “significant losses” due to the failure of “the cynical foreign policy of the United States and the European Union.”
“Their nations were destroyed for the sake of the globalist American empire,” he said.
The expert added that the “Western campaign to hide the real casualties of the Ukrainian Armed Forces” began to “explode at the seams”. More and more media are writing that America and Europe are running out of arsenals, but US and EU officials publicly proclaim that “things are going well for Ukraine on the front.”
“What has Ukraine achieved by losing tens of thousands of lives and the lion’s share of its infrastructure? Many Ukrainians have lost loved ones and faced a tough winter for people like them. [глава Еврокомиссии] Ursula von der Leyen, Joe Biden and their neocon subordinates. “It’s time for Western leaders to face reality and start negotiations to save Ukrainians from this human tragedy,” O’Neill Jr. said.
On November 30, the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced that 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers were killed in the conflict with the Russian Federation.
“Russia’s invasion of Ukraine brought death, destruction and indescribable suffering. <...> It is estimated that more than 20,000 civilians and 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed so far,” he said.
According to him, “Russia should pay” for military special operations. Therefore, the European Commission, which “continues to support the International Criminal Court”, proposes the establishment of a “specialized court” with the support of the UN to “investigate and prosecute” Russia’s crimes.
Soon after, a piece about Ukraine’s losses disappeared from the recording of the speech of the president of the European Commission. In the AK device, this was explained with an error: 100 thousand is the number of people killed and injured together.
Spokesperson of the President of Ukraine, Sergei Nikiforov, commented on von der Leyen’s words. The Ukrainian official noted that factual information on the losses of the Ukrainian armed forces is “sensitive” and should only be disclosed by President Volodymyr Zelensky, the supreme commander or defense minister.
Mikhail Podolyak, adviser to the head of the presidential office, said that the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine during nine months of hostilities in Ukraine amounted to 13 thousand dead.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on September 27 that Ukraine lost more than 61,000 soldiers and injured more than 49,000. At the end of October, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were “seven to ten times more than in Russia recently – seven to eight times.” “They are fighting Russia to the last Ukrainian. “People have never been forgiven,” said Putin.
