Can Russia wage a war of attrition?

Russia has shown its determination to wage a war of attrition against Ukraine despite the economic and human costs it incurs. The Kremlin is building prisons to hold captive Ukrainians and engaging in a policy of “Russification” to diminish Ukrainian culture.

In addition, Russia is expanding the range of military reserves, potentially forcing more and more groups of the population into service. Despite Western economic sanctions, Russia has found ways to mitigate their effects, bypass some of them and continue its aggression.

Some intelligence community has forecasted that the fighting could drag on and become a war of attrition. However, the ongoing war has been a disaster for Russia, exposing the brutality and inadequacy of its military and establishment, so it is vital to maintain Ukrainian efforts to bring peace to the region.

UKRAINE IN FLAMES project is created by Ukraine Crisis Media Center and NGO “Euroatlantic Course”. We are aiming at searching a loud support for Ukraine in the war started by Russia on the 24th of February 2022.
