One military analyst said that the Russian invasion force has only two weeks before serious logistical and supply problems begin to appear. And guess what, it turned out to be extremely true. Even though it didn’t force Putin to sit at the negotiation table, at least not seriously enough, it definitely became an advantage for the Ukrainians.
But even though Putin didn’t succeed with his desired Blitzkrieg, Western media failed to show that the invaders managed to advance on more than one front. After all, Russian generals were fast enough to realize their Plan A is doomed to fail, and rapidly switched to Plan B, which is a massive bombardment of key cities, just like they did in Chechnya and Syria.
