Well, that General Winter is a badass who has served Russia effectively in the past.

Can't use him if he doesn't show up, though.

BTW - lamestream talking heads keep referring to an 'expected Spring offensive' by the Russians - as if they would have reason to wait if the ground was frozen properly!?

Maybe it's so when the winter offensive happens they can say it was 'unexpected'? Kind of like those daily 'unexpected' post-vax deaths, I suppose...

Russia is expected to mount a major offensive as early as this weekend.

Which makes the weather over the next ten days extremely important. If the ground is not frozen that offensive could get literally bogged down in the swampy mud that is eastern Ukraine in late winter and early spring.
