Kremlin bets on perfect storm
Russia has actually arranged a perfect storm for Ukraine
An information and psychological special operation, large-scale activation of agents at home and abroad. The society is undergoing maximum upheaval. Sabotage in government circles. Blocking of borders. Delaying aid through proxies in the political circles of Ukraine's partners. Large-scale offensive actions at the front and fostering hysteria about the impossibility of defeating the enemy.
All this against the backdrop of uncertain statements and actions of key government officials, fatigue from two years of full-scale war and psychological instability.
The government should have clearly stated this and been proactive. This storm can rock the ship, and a deadly wave can simply finish it off. This is how a perfect storm works.
There are two ways to counteract it: first, be adaptive and forget about everything you had planned before. Everything you hear and see may not be what it seems. Think about why they are telling you this. Why are you seeing this? What are they pushing you to do? What is really happening?
The Kremlin thinks this perfect storm will work. Each subsequent wave can be a killer wave. Panic is death.
Keep calm. They were preparing for this. And now those who promised us quicke results are sick of the storm, falling ill right on the captain's bridge. This is not directed at the president or the Commander-in-Chief. During times of war, I refrain from indiscriminate criticism of the military and political leadership; I merely attempt to suggest certain considerations.
