Situation Assessment of the Ukraine-Russia War (G+20)

Okuyucu

I stated that I would continue to monitor the war between Ukraine and Russia in terms of “operational objectives” by updating them in a certain format. After the published G+10 (Ukraine-Russia War Situation Assessment), this is the second in the form of a G+20 report. This time, we will be able to see the progress better with the comparative table. This analytical study is unique in its field in our country.

 Deterrence Average (%)G+20 Level (%)Result Level (%)Evaluation
USA and Partners531528Currently, the USA and its Partners are more advantageous in time management.
Russia (Putin)6029 (Increase)48It can be said that it is approaching the critical limit. It can be said that the most concrete signs of the situation in April can be taken. The impact of the sanctions and slow progress on the ground affected. Putin is on the verge of making sensitive decisions.
Ukraine (Zelensky)532038The critical level has been going on all along.
Leader461737It can be said that it is approaching the critical limit. Considering the timing, it can raise its demands further to take the power of the USA and its Partners.
People522344At critical level. April must be observed. Number of Ukrainians who displaced in the country and went to other countries as refugees: 3 million.
Army602130Land loss may accelerate and conflicts may escalate into resistance in major cities.
G+20 General Situation Assessment552138(Increase)April stands out. The phase of increasing the attempts aimed at a general ceasefire on the parties has been reached. (38% level indicates a critical process.) If it is delayed, the situation becomes chronic, and even if there is a ceasefire, conflicts may continue in different areas. In order to control the situation, it is necessary to make good use of these cramped days ahead (G+30). If there is a lack of invitation to the parties for a ceasefire, the operation continues on the ground and the opportunity for a ceasefire may be lost for at least 3 months.

Featured war/operation types and Expected Developments

  • Global Economic War: It is developing in favor of the USA and against Russia.
  • The Global Information War: It is developing in favor of Ukraine and its supporters, the United States, and its Partners.
  • Tactical City Combat (Built-in Clash): If the Ukraine War cannot be resolved in the short/medium term, the risk of an Unconventional War becomes more evident.
  • Conventional Combat: Operative level. It is in favor of Russia. Russia’s. If he proceeds with his plan normally, it can be expected to take G+3 months. Russia has begun to show its destructive effect more in cities where resistance is high. Odessa is surrounded. A Russian column that surpassed Mikolayev reached Voznesenk. Their goal will be to meet with Russian troops on the Moldovan border. From Kherson, Russian troops continue to advance in two directions north and west. Towards the north, the movement from Zaporiziya in the direction of Dnipro can continue its advance. The Russian Naval Blockade continues. Critical conflict continues in Mariupol. The south of Ukraine is largely under Russian control. If the Russians break the Ukrainian resistance in the Luhansk region in the eastern sector, the progress of the operation can be expected. Izium stands out in this region. Towards the north, the conflict continues in Kharkiv (Kharkov). Russian troops that will pass through Kharkiv can meet with the troops coming from the south in Dnipro, in the middle of the Belgrade-Crimea highway. In this case, about 7 Ukrainian Brigades may have to either withdraw or be forced towards annihilation. This is a very critical situation for the general state of the operation. In the north, troops crossing Sumi can be expected to advance towards the Kyiv region (towards Brovary). The siege in the Kyiv region will continue. In the following days of the operation (for example), if Dnipro is captured by the Russians and the Ukrainian resistance in the Donbass region is broken, a significant part of the troops in Kyiv can expand their operation from this region to the south. We can see this state of affairs in 3-6 weeks. Russian air operations continue to produce 170-210 sorties with tactical fighter-bombers. Strategic bombers are operating, albeit slightly. (To watch the map narrative, you can review the article titled Russia’s Probable Ukraine Operational Plan, which was published earlier.)
  • War at the Strategic Level: Russia is posing a nuclear threat. The state of the war at the strategic level is at the level of “threatening”. Nuclear War is not expected.
  • Shadow War: The assassination of the leader (Zelensky) is on the agenda.
  • Cyber ​​War: Cyber ​​attacks are carried out mutually by Russia, the USA and the UK.
  • The risk of the war spreading: Japan can be followed by bringing up the issue of the Kuril Islands.

Conclusion: “G+20” Ukraine War General Evaluation and Prospects

April stands out. The stage has been reached to increase the initiatives aimed at a general ceasefire on the parties. (38% level indicates a critical process.) If it is delayed, the situation becomes chronic, and even if there is a ceasefire, conflicts may continue in different areas. In order to control the situation, it is necessary to make good use of these cramped days ahead (G+30). If there is a lack of invitation to the parties for a ceasefire, the operation continues on the ground and the opportunity for a ceasefire may be lost for at least 3 months.

The support of the USA and its partners to Ukraine continues. Joe Biden has announced yet another aid package. It is clear that the USA and NATO will not enter this war. However, developments in Russia are closely followed by NATO. All kinds of (including nuclear) NATO plans are modified according to developments. NATO also makes new plans due to emerging energy and logistics problems. The NATO summit to be held on March 24 is considered important. The decision to be made may be in terms of putting more pressure on Russia. In addition, the leaders may be expected to make decisions on a roadmap to be implemented based on the texts that have emerged for the ceasefire, which is not very clear yet.
