Putin is just waiting until Donald takes over and cuts off Ukraine's military aid. If that happens, Ukraine will have to ask for a ceasefire. Putin might agree, but only if Ukraine cedes him all the captured lands. Meanwhile, meat grinder for another 12-15 months. Russia has millions of conscription aged men, training is irrelevant.
If the yanks with hold funds, I think you can expect European nations to up their contribution. They don't want a triumphant Russian bear on their doorstep. The Baltic states in particular would feel very vulnerable

According to Putin's filing for this year's presidential election, he is not a rich man. He makes $125k/year, owns 2 small apartments and 3 cars (1960 and 1965 Volga and 2009 Lada).
Meanwhile, Biden makes $400k/year, owns 2 homes and owns a !967 Chevy Corvette.

And if you believe that's the extent of his assets, I have a bridge that I'd like to sell you.

Some western, anti-war voices claiming that Russia can make munitions and matériel faster and easier than NATO and/or EU can replenish Ukraine's armaments.

Maybe true that production is faster and easier but how is Russia's quality control doing during this time?

Good point. Maybe on par with the 'quality control' of the drafted 60 and 70 year-olds.

A Russian helicopter pilot who defected to Ukraine last year in a secret operation has been found dead in Spain.
The reports claimed he had been murdered by unknown gunmen who fired 12 shots.
