House divided against itself shall not stand. Midwinter reflections

24 December, 2023 Sunday

In my opinion, this winter will be decisive for the country

Why?

The answer is simple.

There is no more social unity that allowed us to repel the first wave of the aggressor's offensive.

A lot of resources, both technical and human, were lost in the course of performing tasks that were necessary for self-promotion but had no practical benefits on the battlefield.

Many of the highly skilled and experienced soldiers, with years of combat expertise, were lost.

The incompetence of those in charge of recruiting reservists for the Ukrainian Armed Forces transformed the queues of volunteers at military registration and enlistment offices into a desperate pursuit that military recruitment offices had to undertake to meet their enlistment targets.

The government, which initially hid and was confused during the initial months of the full-scale invasion, refrained from direct intervention in ongoing processes. This allowed us to self-organize and establish efficient survival strategies in the economy, military commissariats, and everyday life. The government has since regained stability, and this recovery has promptly influenced all areas of our lives within its reach.

The principle that "a house divided against itself shall not stand" seems to have been forgotten, as a deadly struggle for political influence in the country has begun, with preparations for the upcoming elections and the destruction of political opponents on all sides.

International support is naturally waning, both for objective reasons (elections in neighbouring countries, upcoming elections in the US, war fatigue, events in the Middle East) and as a reaction to the behaviour of those representing Ukraine abroad.

The home front lives as if there is no war at all, and the authorities are doing everything they can to facilitate this.

The telethon continues to lull the teletubbies to sleep.

According to open sources, the aggressor is amassing large forces to strike again from the North.

I think it's enough, although the picture is far from complete.

Not trying to scare anyone, but it's alarming.
