Russian Forces “Increasingly Frustrated” by Lack of Progress on Ukraine Invasion


7,238 views

On day three of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, Kyiv still remains under Ukrainian control.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the Ukrainian president, still refuses to retreat.

This has allegedly left Russian forces a bit demoralized.

According to a senior defense official, Russia has become “increasingly frustrated” by the lack of momentum in their invasion of Ukraine.

“We have indications that the Russians are increasingly frustrated by their lack of momentum over the last 24 hours, particularly in the north parts of Ukraine,” the official claimed.

“We continue to believe, based on what we’ve observed, that this resistance is greater than what the Russians expected,” he added.

Despite entering Ukraine from multiple locations, Russian forces still remain roughly 20 miles outside the capital of Kyiv.

Our friends at Fox News have more on Russia’s frustrations:

As Ukraine enters its third day of Russian bombardment following President Vladimir Putin’s invasion this week, a senior defense official said Saturday that Moscow has become “increasingly frustrated” by the lack of momentum.

“We have indications that the Russians are increasingly frustrated by their lack of momentum over the last 24 hours, particularly in the north parts of Ukraine,” the senior defense official said. “We also continue to see indications of viable Ukrainian resistance.”

“We continue to believe, based on what we’ve observed, that this resistance is greater than what the Russians expected,” the official added.

Russian forces have entered Ukraine from the north, south and east, and defense officials believe Putin is attempting to encircle the capital city of Kyiv.

USA Today with more details on the Ukrainian resistance:

The resistance is stiffening as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Saturday pressed the world to help his country beat back a Russian invasion, even as those forces attacked Kyiv from various directions in an effort to take the capital.

The Pentagon Saturday also announced that $350 million in emergency military aid to Ukraine. That package includes Javelin anti-armor missiles, ammunition and body armor, according to the official.

Zelenskyy tweeted that he had started “a new day on the diplomatic frontline” by talking to French President Emmanuel Macron. In a second tweet, Zelenskyy called the present “a crucial moment to close the long-standing discussion once and for all and decide on Ukraine’s membership in the #EU,” or European Union.

Several videos and pictures of the Ukrainian resistance have been posted to social media:
