  1. Why would he says this publicly or is it just a reaffirmation of what he’s said previously. However, “millions” is that how much military he has?

  2. As they hit supply depots of the Russians, they partially isolate the battlefield and make it much harder for inferior logistics of Russia to keep the troops supplied. The need to smash the Kerch bridge is extreme. What the lack of such destruction means is that the Ukrainian Army needs to attack to Russian Army in Kherson in a way that cuts them off from Crimea and Supply. Once they have missile artillery in range of the bridge, and they need to be inside of Crimea for that, they can smash the bridge without risking people to blow the bridge by infiltration. Once that happens, Crimea becomes untenable, and it can be liberated. The loss of Crimea would be a punch in Putin’s gut and his position would be weaker than it is now.

    Then, Ukraine can start to roll up the “land bridge” and go after the main body of the invaders in the east.
