From the Institute for the Study of War:
“Russian forces may intend to resume larger-scale attacks on both axes of advance in the coming week, but will likely take longer to (or may never) cohere the combat power necessary to complete the encirclement of Kyiv,” the analysis said, while the ISW’s chairman, retired Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Jack Keane, suggested on Fox News Sunday that the undermanned Russian forces may just try bomb the city into submission.
“They're bringing their artillery forward. And once they get that artillery in position around the city, they'll begin to hammer it,” said Keane on Fox, where he is a contributor. “This is the Russian way of war. Their intent here is to rubble as much of that city as they can, slaughter the people that are inside of it, and get a capitulation out of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky without having to go into the city.”
