Putin feels Russian military misled him, U.S. official says

U.S. intelligence officials have determined that Russian President Vladimir Putin is being misinformed by his advisers about the poor performance of Kremlin troops in Ukraine, the Associated Press reported and CBS News confirmed.

A U.S. official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss recently declassified intelligence, said Wednesday the intelligence finding indicates that Putin is aware of the situation on information coming to him and there is now persistent tension between him and senior Russian military officials. President Biden, in an exchange with reporters, would not comment.

But the administration is hopeful that divulging the finding could help prod Putin to reconsider his options in Ukraine. The war has ground to a bloody stalemate in much of the country, with heavy casualties and Russian troop morale sinking as Ukrainian forces and volunteers put up an unexpectedly strong defense.

However, the publicity runs the risk of further isolating Putin, who U.S. officials have said seems at least in part driven by a desire to win back Russian prestige lost by the fall of the Soviet Union.

6. Yes, this!

No one wanted to invade Russia! We want a world at peace, and perhaps helping one another. This is all on him!

5. Hey Pootie, what did you think would happen

when you budgeted to build 50 tanks, 4 were build and delivered for 5, and remaining money was pocketed by your oligarch pals, and filed papers that 50 were buil?. Same story for everything else you military needs.
