The regime of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, and the Russian population who loves their aggressive, imperialist dictatorship, are set for a world of pain and disappointment.
Ukrainians are launching a major counterattack to liberate much of the lands conquered by Russians in a move that may be the turning point in Moscow’s nauseating war.
Russian Offensive Exposed Occupiers in Southern Ukraine
While the Russian forces present remain amassed in the Donbas region, Ukrainians have spent weeks mauling Russian occupiers in the Kherson region.
Now, the Ukrainian command is gearing up for a major push to liberate Kherson. For the first three months of the current war, Kherson was the only major city in Ukraine captured by the Russians.
With Putin’s regime now seeking to hold a sham referendum and annex the region, a successful counterattack to liberate it would be a devastating blow to Moscow, both militarily and in terms of image/propaganda.
As per the latest update of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, as of Monday morning, the Russian military lost at least 39,700 troops killed in battle.

"We can say that a turning point has occurred on the battlefield. We see that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are prevailing in their most recent military operations," an aide to the head of the Kherson region said. https://t.co/3hiAJZKvTz

Zombified Russians Have to Wave Empire Dream Goodbye
By September, Ukraine is going to “definitely” liberate Kherson, according to Serhii Khlan, an advisor to the Ukrainian governor of the region.
Khlan also predicted, as cited by The Daily Mail, that the present moment is seeing a turning point in the war.
In order to bolster its all-out assault on the Donbas region, the Russian command actually pulled out some units from the southern section of the frontline, weakening Russian deployments there.
Ukrainians, however, also managed to gain momentum in their defense against Putin’s aggression, thanks to the United States supplying HIMARS rocket artillery systems with a range of 50 miles.
Speaking on Sunday, Ukraine’s heroic President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced Ukrainian forces are now “advancing openly” against the previously superior enemy.
He vowed Ukrainians “will not obey” the Russians, “will endure,” and “will win” the war.
Khlan’s prediction that Russia will lose Kherson by September speaks of a potential defeat that could seriously shake up the Putin regime in Moscow.
Millions of impoverished, ordinary Russians remain zombified by the dictatorship’s propaganda and demand their fascist empire.
If the bridges get fully destroyed, Russian deployments there would be cut off from other invaders by the vast Dnipro River; their destruction or surrender would be a matter of time.
At the same time, footage emerged on social media of two burning Russian S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems destroyed in a Ukrainian attack in the Kherson region.
The once much-celebrated Soviet-era weapon systems are notable because Russians modified them in order to strike ground targets.
🩸British intelligence reports that the Russian command is currently facing a dilemma: whether to strengthen the defense in the Kherson region or to intensify the offensive in Donbas. They also note that the Russians have serious problems with equipment due to losses in the war. pic.twitter.com/rRm4KpzzVh
