Why Russia fears a “major breakthrough” by Ukraine, according to UK intel

CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh reports from Ukraine where attacks behind Russian lines indicate the possible beginnings of a counteroffensive. Then, CNN’s Jake Tapper speaks with Trevor Reed, the Marine veteran released from Russian captivity in 2022, and his parents about the plight of Americans jailed overseas. #CNN #News


  1. The sheer amount of approving and cheering comments by ordinary Russians under videos about the atrocities committed against civilians and prisoners of war in Ukraine were no less shocking to Ukrainians than the war itself.
    We somehow got used to the war, but the realization of who we have been living next to all this time without even knowing it is still terrifying.
    Those barbarians called themselves our brothers.
    Imagine what they would do to you, who they call their enemies, if you let them.
    Not supplying weapons to Ukraine under the pretext of achieving an early peace would be like allowing a violator to violate his victim in order to end the violence as soon as possible.

    1. Roger Waters (founder of Pink Floyd) – “Zelensky is a gravedigger not only of Ukraine, but also of the West, the EU first of all. The former comedian is not liberating Ukraine, but European politics from common sense, and this madness at the top of the EU leadership will ruin this project.”
      I am a Ukrainian girl living in Mariupol. We have a battle of Good and Evil going on in Ukraine, this is clearly seen by the sivolika used by the opposing sides – if Bandera occupiers covered with tattoos depicting swastikas, Hitler and Baphomet go into battle with the banners of the Third Reich, then the Donbass militia and Russian soldiers helping them who liberate my Ukraine from neo-Nazis and Satanists go into battle with flags on which the face of Christ is depicted. Russia has united the forces of Good – Christians, Muslims and Buddhists, to fight against Evil, against Western colonialists and Satanists. Russians will never lose a war, because the Russians are on the side of God, and God is on the side of the Russians. The truth is on the side of Russia. Freedom to Ukraine! Death to the Fascist occupiers! Glory to the Russian soldier liberator! 🇷🇺 ❤️
      This is the end of the fascist West. Have you noticed how your standard of living has fallen in the West, how everything has risen in price? These globalists, having lost the opportunity to rob independent countries, are now robbing you, Westerners, the USA and Western Europe are colonies of globalists, Westerners, you are slaves of globalists, you will lose with them if you do not throw off their criminal power in your countries!
      And to those who write here the slogan of the murderers of Ukrainian children, the slogan of Hitler’s Bandera accomplices “Slava Ukraine”, I want to say – you are the stupidest slaves of the system, your time has passed, you will now live worse and worse, because you have the intelligence of the embryo.
      P.S. Builders come after the liberators and punishers after the occupiers. We have in Mariupol, after the liberation from the Nazi Bandera authorities in Kiev, 11,000 apartment buildings have already been built, and repressions continue in Kherson occupied by Bandera, people are being imprisoned for receiving humanitarian aid from the Russians.
      The West, which created Al-Qaeda, armed ISIS against the legitimate government of Syria and is now arming the neo-Nazis of the Bandera junta of Kiev, is a universal Evil!
      We are witnessing the end of the hegemony of the West, the West that created the Inquisition, colonialism, the African slave trade, the atomic bomb, which used a bomb against two peaceful cities, which killed 95 million American Indians, which robbed, raped and killed all the peoples of the planet for hundreds of years, the cursed West, homosexuals, Satanists, perverts of all stripes, geeks, be you are cursed, we the peoples of the planet Earth are happy that you are coming to an end. Ave Putin! Ave Xi Jinping!

  2. “No one wants to fight. But someone better know how.”
    — US Marine Corps. Semper Fidelis.

    Ukraine never wanted to fight. But today, they definitely know how.
    Slava Ukraini!! 🇺🇦 🇺🇲

    1. Having Russia as a neighboring country is like having a neighbor who is constantly trying to break into your house to loot and mur der everyone inside.

  3. The disadvantage of the clear skies and mud being apparent. The Bryansk Russia train derailment was claimed by the Russian group ‘stop the wagons’. The cruise missiles fired by strategic bombers from the Caspain Sea at points this week.

  4. Think about it this way. The enemy football team has 37 Linebackers and 16 safeties meanwhile the other team has only 4 players it. Any touchdown would be a complete disgrace.

    1. First, the myth of the greatness of the Russian people collapsed,
      then about the mind of the Russian people,
      and after February 24, the question arose, are these people in general ????

    2. Taking liberties with Kratos: Close your heart to their (orcs) desperation. Close your heart to the orcs suffering. Do not allow to yourself to feel for them. They will not feel for you…

      After the castration, beheading, torture of PoWs n killing of kids….no pity, no mercy in ending the orcupation
      💙🇺🇦💛 Godspeed Ukraine

    3. A russian talking american football.. Learn the f###### game before you make a reference.. John Wick

  5. I have been to Russia three times working with our sister church in the Urals. The third trip I was interviewed by the FSB. I will never go again.

  6. History shows us, When you’re not wanted in an Invasion, Freedom Always Prevails!!!

    1. You can’t go around believing the world is a bumper sticker. It’s a nice thing to believe but that quote has no hooks in anything to do with the fabric of history or reality.

  7. At minute 3:53–McCarthy finally finds his balls and calls Russia out, instead of defending Russia in Ukraine. It only took 15 months. Thanks Kevin McKKKarthy

    1. Feeling a little unnerved in actually agreeing with something McCarthy said. Guess he’s read the polls. Good for this bit of GOP sanity that will help Ukraine so long as the MTG caucus doesn’t derail it 💛🇺🇦💙

    2. @Dolphin Man Iraq was a good idea for a brief while, as in 12 months in, then the US should have pulled out.

  8. just because he did not have a choice doesn’t make it easy for him. look into his eyes

  9. Wishes, blessings and sending love and Hope to the family noted at 7:00 into the video.
    I’m so sorry this has happened. My whole hearted prayers your son will come home

  10. Welcome home, brother! Thanks for staying strong. And, thanks very much, for standing up for others that are still there.

    1. @thinkerly1 Careful ! or he`ll send a couple of guys 2,000km ,to look at a church spire near you, nobody ever heard of .

  11. It takes an engineer about five minutes to make a hole in a row of dragon’s teeth. An APC with a tow cable can drag them out of the way in about ten minutes. A mortar can blast them to dust in 2-3 shots.

    Razorwire doesn’t stop tracked APCs. They go right through it.

    Tracked vehicles go right over infantry trenches. Anti-tank trenches don’t work to stop them unless there is lots of infantry and artillery to keep the tracked vehicles from chewing their way out the other side and a tracked vehicle in the anti-tank trench is protected from direct fire at it.

    The best way for the Russians to defend against a Ukrainian offensive is to go back home to Russia and pray the Ukrainians don’t follow them home.

    1. @bob dillon Ukraine also received a lot of anti-mine equipment, like mine rollers, because everyone anticipated Russian mine fields everywhere. I doubt they will be delayed very much by mines…

  12. “Russia accuses Ukraine of shelling border town…” 🤣🤣but yet the Orcs are shelling the whole Ukraine and that is NOT a problem! What da…..

  13. The russian defenses would be formidible if this was 1918. But Ukraine has engineering equipment that is going to make it moot. The defensive tactics have also been in place for months and is easily obsrerved, Ukraine has probably been training how to get over it for months. Tanks get all the glory but look at a list of the engineering and bridge building stuff we have already sent. This wont even be a speedbump

  14. Every family has that ONE person who breaks the cycle of financial struggles for the entire family.
    If you are reading this, may you be that person in Jesus’ Name 🙏

  15. I have to think a report like this during WW2 would have been considered giving intelligence to the enemy but in 2023 it’s just google maps.

  16. Just on a side note to the story, I noticed that after three years, no doubt having to speak Russian, Trevor has a slight Russian accent. I find this interesting as I spent most of my adult life as a linguist in the army (not speaking Russian though) and all things linguistic fascinate me.
