🧵The AFU clown show in southern Ukraine scales new heights.

In arguably the most embarrassing debacle of the war yet for Ukraine, they apparently permitted themselves to attempt an MI6-designed and directed commando operation to seize the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.

1/

The would-be commandos, 64 in number, recently “trained” in the UK, set out across the Kakhovskoye reservoir in seven high-speed boats, landed on the opposite shore 3 km from the NPP, where they were immediately met by a Russian ambush.

2/

Apparently Russian intelligence was fully aware of their plans and had monitored the debutante commandos from the time they left Poland to pursue their ostensibly glorious operation – allegedly advocated by the corpulent Boris Johnson himself in his recent visit to Kiev.

3/

Of the 64 “commandos”, at least 47 are now dead, a few wounded, and a dozen trapped with no means of escape, all seven of their boats having been destroyed.

The entire undertaking has been an unmitigated amateurish disaster.

4/

As for the long-anticipated “Kherson Counter-offensive”, it appears to be losing steam at a rapid pace.

In the past 24 hours, another 31 tanks, 30 armored vehicles, 8 pickups with machine guns, and 350 soldiers have been destroyed.

5/

In addition to the ongoing massacre taking place near Kherson, another platoon of M-777 howitzers has been destroyed, 44 HIMARS rockets intercepted, and 2 US-made HARMS missiles intercepted in another futile attack on the Antonovsky bridge.

6/

It has become increasingly obvious that, despite having, on paper, a “formidable” force arrayed in the Kherson region, the Ukrainian troops are essentially incapable of anything approaching competent combat-effectiveness.

This war needs to end soon.

7/end
