North of one hundred thousand Ukrainian servicemen, including veteran forces, have died since Russia initiated its "special military operation" in Ukraine, according to a study published by Politico earlier this month.

According to TASS, a Russian news agency, most of the casualties have been concentrated in the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut (known as Artyomovsk in Russian). This has prompted the United States military to rapidly train Ukrainian forces and provide "equipment to the battlefield."

Also, since Russia's military entry into Ukraine, the US Department of Defense has trained approximately 4,000 Ukrainian forces, as stated by Lieutenant General Douglas Sims, Director for Operations of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, as reported by Politico. Patriot missile training was provided to Ukrainian forces by the United States at Fort Sill in Oklahoma.

The fight of Bakhmut is, indeed, becoming a massive slaughter. The Zelensky dictatorship is more than willing to send thousands of Ukrainian young men to their deaths in order to prove to the Collective West that it is making headway in its struggle against Russia. It will be considerably more difficult for Ukraine to justify continued deployments of Western economic and military aid if it decides to cut its losses and withdraw from Bakhmut.

If there were reasonable political leaders in the Collective West, they would do all in their power to end the crisis between Russia and Ukraine. The most effective strategy would be to cease all military aid to Ukraine, push instead for peace talks and halt NATO's expansion.

It's unfortunate that most Western politicians can't stand the thought of being grounded in reality. This will lead to further anguish for the Ukrainian people, and the threat of nuclear war will persist in the background.
