If theres one thing thats true, its that the people that are fighting there are fighting, and they are fighting for their country. The Ukrainians passed a law in the beginning days of the war that able-bodied men 16 to 60 need to stay there and fight, so I think that there are a whole bunch of factors as to why theyve lasted this long, but I think Russia didnt expect whats going on.
