For some hilarity go read the comments in Davis's piece. Wall-to-wall delusion (with a handful to reality based comments). They're clinging to the bullshit figures put out by Ukraine and the west, Russia's lost 20-40% of it's equipment, Ukraine has more tanks than it started with (no joke, someone still believes that. Apparently they didn't see the Ukrainians asked for a bunch for tanks. I guess they like collecting them).

At this rate, the afu will cease to exist, Russia will control all of Ukraine and the guys will still be saying, "Ukraine can still win, I don't know what you're your talking about. If you will it enough, bullets can bounce off of you, the Ukrainians just need a couple more guns is all."
