💫 Short Summary

The video discusses the collapse of Avdiivka, Ukraine, and the inability of Ukrainian forces to extract themselves, the failure of the Azov Battalion to stabilize the situation, and the report that no fortified lines west of Avdiivka have been built. The Russians have captured key locations, and there are questions about their next moves. The $61 billion aid package for Ukraine is seen as a political effort to keep Zelensky in power but is not enough to change the military situation, as Ukraine is facing a shortage of artillery shells and air defense missiles. The speaker suggests that the US should take the blame for the situation in Ukraine and that Europe is dependent on the US regardless.
