Russian Ukrainian conflict is more of a West Ukrainian East Ukrainian conflict. It’s a very divided nation with two conflicting mentalities. Western Ukraine spent the most time under foreign oppression, proclaimed themselves most true Ukrainians(even tho they’re the most mixed) and currently waging a conquest of the rest of the country. Eastern Ukrainians repelled by their values took up arms and fighting to death. So far destroying government forces and volunteer nationalist battalions in every battle. All that NATO training, and tactics seem useless.
