每日英語跟讀 Ep.K313: About Ukraine - Ukrainian military long on morale but short on weaponry

When Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula and threw its support behind separatists in the country’s east more than seven years ago, Kyiv’s underfunded and disorganized armed forces struggled to mount a credible response.

七年多前,當俄羅斯吞併烏克蘭的克里米亞半島並支援該國東部的分離主義分子時,基輔資金不足且組織混亂的武裝部隊努力做出可信的回應。

Now, amid fears that a Russian troop buildup near Ukraine’s border could signal a possible attack, military experts say Moscow would face stronger resistance this time.

現在,由於擔心俄羅斯軍隊在烏克蘭邊境附近的集結可能預示著可能的襲擊,軍事專家表示,莫斯科這次將面臨更強的抵抗。

But they emphasize that Ukraine would be well short of what it needs to counter Russia’s overwhelming superiority.

但他們強調,烏克蘭遠遠達不到對抗俄羅斯壓倒性優勢所需的水準。

Years of fighting the separatists have given Ukrainian veterans like Col. Viacheslav Vlasenko the battlefield experience for such a fight. "We Ukrainians are defending our land, and there is no place for us to retreat,’’ said Vlasenko.

分離主義分子多年的戰鬥為像維亞切斯拉夫·弗拉森科上校這樣的烏克蘭退伍軍人提供了這種戰鬥的戰場經驗。"我們烏克蘭人正在保衛我們的土地,我們沒有地方可以撤退,"弗拉森科說。
