The Russians have noted that Ukraine is using its best trained and most experienced troops which are operating with a high level of professionalism.

These military forces were NATO-trained and appear to have high morale. However, attributing your army’s best forces, with little of strategic value to show for the effort, in the end could force the Ukrainian government into reevaluating the war effort.

There is also growing concern in Washington that the war may soon spill over outside of Ukraine, with Poland high on the list as a possible hot spot.

Both the Poles and the Russians have been actively provocative, with the Wagner forces moving into Belarus and with Poland sending armor resources to the borders of Belarus and Ukraine.

NATO is in a very bad position to support a widened war in Europe. It lacks troops (the US is now calling up reservists for US deployments in Eastern Europe) and sufficient ammunition, and NATO is very thin on air defenses and armor.

The Russians are also on the cusp of a major mobilization, something that presages the possibility of a wider conflict. Do you mean. Nor have the Russians continued to mince words about the Ukraine Special Military Operation.

They now come right out and refer to it as Russia’s war against NATO. Nor do the Russians any longer mince words about the Ukraine special military operation, which is now characterized as Russia’s war against NATO.

In short the conflict is inexorably morphing and could soon go out of control from the point of view of confining it mainly to a battle on Ukrainian territory.

This is underlined by the volunteers fighting in Ukraine, many of whom are Poles, and the attachment of American and British specialists to Ukrainian battle-groups.

Europe is simply unprepared for a war that might be fought on its territory. Few steps are being taken to try and head off a bigger crisis.
