Western officials warned last night of a "ritual humiliation" of Russian forces in Ukraine, but they are still trying to win the war.

In their darkest assessment of the campaign from its early days, they admitted that Vladimir Putin's forces were gaining territory and currently outnumbered the defenders by three to one.

Moscow's forces failed in their initial invasion goals, as Ukraine inflicted a series of humiliating defeats on it.

The shift came after a general known as "The Butcher," a veteran of the Syrian campaign, reformed the performance of the Russian advance.

Western officials credited General Alexander Dvornikov, who had become commander in chief two weeks earlier, credited the reversal of Russia's fortunes.

His capture came after Russia failed to capture any major cities, its retreat from Kyiv, the loss of 30,000 soldiers, and hundreds of planes and tanks.

Officials now believed it would be challenging to drive the Russians out of the territories they won with this numerical advantage and more effective leadership.

But they said that many Russian units now targeting eastern Ukraine and the Donbas region did not have time to properly reconstitute after receiving an attack in the failed advance on Kyiv.

 The new phase of the war in a "fragmented" manner with limited effect, with "relatively small terrain areas. Significant cities, their retreat from Kyiv, the loss of 30 thousand soldiers, and hundreds of planes and tanks.
