Captured Russian Soldiers ‘Catastrophe’ for Putin

Earlier this week, videos surfaced of captured Russian soldiers, including officers.

If they were authentic, the videos were damning for Putin in terms of the premise that Russian troops were given for this invasion.

Former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kurt Volker believes those videos are a “catastrophe” for Putin.

Losing the People

There have been numerous reports regarding the media that is getting out regarding this invasion.

Putin is limiting information to Russians to ensure he can sell the narrative that he wants for this invasion.

The videos of captured soldiers have explained the invasion as training exercises and rescuing the country from a rogue, Nazi-like regime, just to name two.

On the misinformation, Volker stated, “One of the most telling things is what the Ukrainians discovered when they captured some of the Russian soldiers.

“They interviewed them and the soldiers did not know that they were in Ukraine and on a mission to attack Ukraine, they thought they were on a training exercise.

“What that tells you is the Russian leadership didn’t want to tell them the truth because they knew they wouldn’t want to do it.”

The more soldiers learn the truth, the more stories we hear of troops just giving up without so much as a shot being fired.

Volker concluded, “They are leaving their vehicles on the road.

“This is a catastrophe for the Russians and it’s Putin’s catastrophe. And you have to believe that the generals and the leadership in Russia know this.

“It’s hard for them to do something about it now but the worse it gets, the more they’re going to be looking at Vladimir Putin’s leadership.”

With so much misinformation, it is hard to know what is the actual truth in terms of what Russian troops were told right now.

However, if these reports are accurate, it would explain Putin’s frantic push to get to Kyiv.

If he is losing the will of these troops, this battle could be over very soon, only not with a conclusion that Putin will like.
