Russia & Ukraine 12 - "Well, well, well", utterly convinced russian debunkers ep. 9999999999 Strelok 04/09/2022 (Sat) 20:30:42 No.31657
Edited last time by activeshooter on 04/13/2022 (Wed) 02:24:57.

>>31645 What a waste. On the other hand, how much of a waste is it really when she was dumb enough to go to war? It's a 50/50 thing, probably.
>>31649 A fake list is possible, but are you really implying a Russian operative ready with spray paint and a template sneakily added a new serial number? They'd have to paint over the old serial number too and hope the locals don't notice the change. Both sides have enough real atrocities to keep the animosity burning already, so do you think russia is so optics-sensitive to commit to something like that?
>Russia reportedly foiled another Ukrainian evacuation attempt on Mariupol port, 8 April. >This time it was from Ukrainian dry cargo ship "Apache" masquerading as a Maltese ship that suddenly changed course from its convoy and gunned it for the port. Now I really, 'really', want to know what's so important to Ukraine that it'd make three suicidal tries at evacuating Mariupol.
>>31669 The conspiracy is that there's a French Colonel in Mariupol, alongside one of the NATO higher ups and a bunch of Foreign Legionares. There was already a pic posted from a down helo of a FFL hat that was assigned to the unit Nimes, France. That is the either the 6th Light Armored or the 2nd FFL Infantry Regiment. My guess is Stève Carleton, the 2nd FFL commander got caught with troops in there and there's a bunch of "behind the scene talks" so the Russians don't go full nuclear option on NATO (Nobody REALLY wants that except the Jews probably).
>>31670 Fortunately this time the evac vehicle was captured instead of destroyed, and without casualties. How is Russia's interrogation track record for discovering intelligence on high value personnel targets?
>>31670 >My guess is Stève Carleton, the 2nd FFL commander got caught with troops in there and there's a bunch of "behind the scene talks" so the Russians don't go full nuclear option on NATO Do you mean literally or metaphorically?
>>31517 https://www.uawardata.com This is a map that started tracking Russian locations on 31 March. No Ukrainian locations unfortunately. The last update is 6 April. So far it looks like it takes up to 3 days for an update.

>>31674 >Captured I don't think they got the Col if he's there, it got shot down while landing. There was a FFL hat in the wreckage of the first. I'll post photo if I can find a copy, but the source posting it got nuked by twitter for "disinfomration". Here's a video of a caputred Ukrainian. Suposedly SSU operative call sign "Belmak ", an airborne (I think) instrutor? also video of claimed patches from foreign fighters (I doubt they are that stupid but plebbit legion was a thing) >>31676 >Literally Rumor is that the Chinese or the Jews are mediating between NATO and the Russians. On the other hand, Marcon has an election in this month so if the French media uncucks itself a non zero chance higher than burger media we might get WW3 kicked off by frog press doing actual journalisim. Other stuff >corruption in Ukraine isn't a thing! >Confiscated a Tesla for the "War" >Slav casually moving AT mines around >Burger Negresses being attention whores per the usual in burgerland.
This whole thing has just made me hate slavs. A lot.
>>31678 >Why are they such fucking subhumans? Communism. Their monuments are still everywhere. Their ideology still penetrates Russia, and they're still pretending as if they weren't anything but a scourge on creation. Thus, the commie mindvirus still persists in the Russian consciousness. >>31667 Not on the remains of the missile. If I'm in a war and have the luxury of time, I'm repainting the serial numbers of every missile I fire before I do so, just to fuck with the enemy. If every time a missile strikes, the enemy HQ gets a call to stop the friendly fire, it creates a slight amount of chaos for no real cost. >>31670 Riddle me this: If NATO wants to intervene on the down-low, why send real parts of their military and not far more plausible deniability assets like PMCs? Is Russia gonna go nuclear over Blackwater? Unlikely. But they do glow enough to send in, with some newer, freshly-gifted equipment the Ukes agree to leave exclusively to them, if necessary.
>>31685 >Riddle me this: If NATO wants to intervene on the down-low, why send real parts of their military and not far more plausible deniability assets like PMCs? Because they are retarded or because PMCs ask for too much money. Knowing NATO it's probably both.

Jewgele returns 2: https://blazetrends.com/the-beret-of-a-french-legionnaire-found-in-mariupol-watch-out-for-these-pictures/ https://wikitim.com/co-van-nato-dang-bi-bao-vay-o-chao-lua-mariupol/ First one claims to discredit the pro-Russian source from twitter accounts....,I quote: >They rely on it on a video from the YouTube account “War gonzo”, published on April 4, and which has since accumulated 272,000 views. It shows a man, probably a Russian soldier, grabbing the beret from the back of what looks like a military vehicle littered with trash. The soldier then presents a badge to the camera. Video link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYi0tC0uWsw >The beret and the badge visible in the video are indeed elements of the uniform of the Foreign Legion, confirm to us sources specialists in this body of the French army. However, elements challenge: “We see that the beret is new”, underlines a military source with 20 minutes. As for the badge, it should bear a number on the front side, adds this source, which is not the case here. >It is also possible to buy a beret and a badge in military surplus or on the internet, completes a second specialist in these questions, who adds: “A legionnaire does not abandon his beret. They are taught very young not to part with their weapon and their beret. " The secons source is a Vietnamnese source, which does not question the equipment however, it states something not stated in the other: >According to Russian intelligence, provided to the media, there are currently more than 20 foreign military advisers in Mariupol . But the question of why, these advisers continue to stay in Mariupol, remains undisclosed. If you look at the emblem pin, that is either the emblem of the French Foreign Legion's Legion Command. >(Commandement de la Légion Étrangère) based in Aubagne, France commanded by Major General Alain Lardet Units under its command, commanders and garisons are: >1st Foreign Regiment(1er Régiment étranger), Aubagne, Lieutenant-colonel Arnaud de Peretti Mostly administrative unit with basic proficency testing for canidates, rehab, and legion family housing >Foreign Legion Recruiting service (Groupement de recrutement de la Légion étrangère), Fort de Nogent, Fontenay-sous-Bois, Paris, France Lieutenant-colonel Fabrice Prenveille - These guys are also involved in training abroad la burger Green Berets. It is worth noting that the 1er has a 1 in the circle of the beret badge (I believe we call it a flash in burger speak?). whereas COMLE does not. and is empty. I believe it would be much harder for them to obtain COMLE beret pins then other legions, given you are not given a beret flash unless you are assigned to the unit and not merely training.
>>31687 There's also the issue that Marcon might be royally pissed at his Intel agencies and are sending them to die, since it appears there was a major intelligence failure and he has "reassigned" most of the intel top brass. But the issue is he also has an election this month. So nuke war might be kicked off by French Press reporting on him Unlikely since Le Pen, the challenger is "le great nazi ebil", but is election year so who knows.
>>31649 >My bet there is on Brazil Brazil is unanimously disliked by the entire Mercosur and Central/North American latin americans, how are they going to take leadership aside from maybe manufacturing hub?
>>31684 Now you know how the world felt when they saw America from 1996 to... i guess a year ago in Afghanistan
>>31694 America has been dicking around in the Middle East since the 60s, buddy.
>>31670 That is one spicy meataballa If anything it confirms what most believed, that France wants to assume direct control of the EU and the Germans and Russians are the only two stepping stones they need to overcome now that Britain is out, the US is seen as senile and their African peace keeping missions are heating up. >>31683 >Rumor is that the Chinese or the Jews are mediating between NATO and the Russians. Hasn't this been true from day one though? Also I heard that Austria, Sweden and Finland dropped the neutrality act and are looking into ways to join NATO, which would fuck up a lot of EU-Elsewhere relations. >Macron They're going to force his re-election just like they did a few years ago. The french electoral system is rigged so that if you do not win the first round, literally every party under the sun, from left to right, from greens to industrialists, from progressives to conservatives will just tell their constituents to vote for the candidate that maximizes the chances of staying in Europe/ the global system.
>>31684 >This whole thing has just made me hate slavs. A lot.

PMCs may not accept deployment against a super power, also they would not share crucial intel to better NATO's strategies. Would a plumber you call to fix your pipes tell you all his trade secrets?
>>31683 >it got shot down while landing. This is a newer evacuation attempt using a cargo ship that Russians captured with the crew intact before it landed in Mariupol.
>>31693 >manufacturing hub Yes, why not be the China of South America? Nearly everyone around the chinks fucking hates them to some extent too.
>>31693 >Brazil is unanimously disliked by the entire Mercosur and Central/North American latin americans South Americans all hate each other and they are too busy infighting to do anything, it's the only reason why has lots of soft power over south America
Have you ever played Hoi4? Do you know how many countries have an incentive to send their volunteers to Spanish civil war in earlygame for that juicy Army EXP? If Ukraine is the next Spain, what's gonna be the next Deutschland? And in how many year's time?
>>31700 They tried that in the 80s/90s. The climate of Brazil is not really suitable for manufacturing. Humidity is too big of an issue for electronics in the lower regions, altitude is too big of an issue in the arid regions, and pollution is an issue all around for server rooms and the like all around. The only reason China gets around the pollution problem is because their governments are willing to throw money and air filters at their clean rooms like candy.

>>31704 >So what now? Russians wait until the Spring thaw while minimizing casualties and using artillery and missiles to fuck any attempt by Ukraine to build back up their infrastructure, then reinvade in June/July when the ground has finished drying out and the shortages have demoralized the Hohols. As has been stated repeatedly now. Meanwhile the metric fuck tons of grains remain locked up in transit robbing Ukraine of needed hard cash assets driving wartime hyperinflation and destabilizing the world food situation unless the Ukrainians manage to do something about those Russian ships. Much needed goods deals continue to not be worked out as investors/businessmen recognize the danger of losing all their assets if the Russians seize them or destroy them, since Ukraine is already known worldwide as a poor debtor/creditor who doesn't pay back what they owe.

>>31704 Nothing changes. Kiev never was the goal. That was known since like day three, since if it was, they would start storming it with heavy shit. Meanwhile, ukrops have been amassing troops in Kiev, which was a distraction to begin with sadly, a distraction with high casualty rate . Can they move these troops away from it, to the frontlines? Dunno but I doubt it. Ruskies have been bombing rails and shit and it would take titanic amounts of oil to do.
>>31712 CIA really wants this war to kick off a great reset and civilians aren't having none of it so they had to come up with some new propaganda.

>>31701 Yes but BRs take the cake by a long shot, they don't look like them nor speak the same language. They are also known to be shabby workers and anyone can believe the whole story from Nissan making Brazil a superpower in manufacturing cars after using every trick in the book to bully the workers to force them to be rich, so much the boss Ghosn had to flee because every syndicate was out to hit him. They do not want to be the best, hence why i think it will be difficult for them to overcome that block.

>>31740 That much is true. I'd actually be willing to try the stuff if it didn't pretend to be meat. There are meals I eat that are nearly meat-free, from chickpea curry to spicy tofu stir-fry to squash soup, without actually avoiding meat, and I have no objections to plant-based ingredients that increase options instead of taking them away. But I don't want a product that is unable to stand on its own merits, and can only sell by being an inferior alternative to meat for people who refuse (or, as the plan goes, can't afford) to use the real thing. But it's still dumb to use "soy" as a buzzword when the product in question advertises itself as soy-free.
>>31738 What happened? Did they think it was one of theirs?
>>31743 Unless they wanted to suicide by tank, I thinks it's safe to assume they either thought it was their own or a captured tank.
>>31739 I'm pretty sure there are no tot hentais.
>>31744 >thought it was their own or a captured tank. Videos like this make me wonder how much of Ukraine's alleged capture of Russian assets that were immediately used against Russians is really just Ukraine projecting their own screw ups onto Russia.
>>31742 fuck you're dense The "soy" is referring to the fags holding the meat, their faces are a widely used shitty meme template making fun of soyboys.
>>31752 Are you trying to miss the point or are you just retarded? There is no fucking soy. The fags in the picture are getting excited over a product that explicitly advertises itself as being soy-free and considers that a good thing. It's complete fucking nonsense to call them "soyboys" when there is no soy and soy is completely irrelevant.
Open file (831.63 KB 600x814 Dense.png)
>>31753 "soyboy" does not mean there must be a direct association with soy. excess soy creates hormonal imbalances in men, making them produce a greater amount of estrogen than testosterone, leading to them exhibiting non-masculine or feminine qualities such as frail appearance or interest in passive, non-masculine activities. the fact that these two SOYBOYS are getting excited over fucking plants masquerading as chicken shows that they are not right in the head, and going off of their appearance, they are suffering from a severe lack of testosterone in their bodies which is most commonly associated with high quantities of soy-based foods or other xenoestogens. stop acting retarded.
The only thing the anti-legume fags have shown me is their entire issue with plant meat, bug meat, etc. is entirely emotional. Much like their insistence on using cancer sticks in the age of nicotine lozenges, gum, patches, vape, etc.

>>31760 Ukraine is infamous for being a hub of child rapists and a leading producer of child porn, particularly of the hurtcore variety, so if this is suddenly relevant then pig hohols aren't innocent by any means in this area either.
>>31762 Bugs by definition are meat. To argue otherwise would beg the question of whether crustaceans can be considered meat. In regards to plant meat; what would you like me to call it? Pea and rice protein 3D printed imitation of X? A veggie burger is still a veggie burger, and the physical arrangement of the folded proteins at the microscopic level resemble that of meat texturally, bioactively, and nutritionally. Give an alternative name if you have such an issue with the term plant protein/plant meat. I don't use the word meat to describe black bean fake "meat" or soy fake "meat" or hemp fake "meat" because they do not resemble meat texturally, bioactively, and nutritionally. Beyond meat does. >>31763 Then use an image of soy nuggets instead of looking like a retard.

Attention!! Representatives of the Russian occupation forces continue to act cynically. So, for several days, the enemy fired at civilian foreign merchant ships and the Icebreaker Kapitan Belousov, located on the berths of the Mariupol commercial port. Today, during the negotiations of the Ukrainian military on evacuation with the crews of ships, including many foreign citizens, in particular citizens of Turkey and Bulgaria, representatives of the enemy intervened, convincing them not to believe Ukraine and offering evacuation from themselves. However, where exactly the crew members will be evacuated is not reported. There were only instructions to go out to the enemy with the food available on the ships. It should be noted that before that, the Russians killed a crew member of the Icebreaker Kapitan Belousov, and several crew members of the icebreaker and people from the ship flying the flag of the Dominican Republic were also injured. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to hope for ensuring security from the invaders. We call on the consulates of states whose citizens are on foreign ships in Mariupol to help ensure their safe evacuation along the corridor that will be controlled by the state of Ukraine!

What I mean is that after the war is over, not being a ukrainian nationalist in Ukraine will mean disrespecting the fallen heroes and being a russian collaborator. The war is no joke, this is not 2014 with 100 civilians dead and no damage done to pretty much anything else, a lot more people will switch over to ukrainian than in 2014 and that's going to be the least savage evidence of nationalism in the new Ukraine.

Zelensky: Ukraine will look more like ‘big Israel’ than Europe in the wake of Russia’s war >BY RON KAMPEAS APRIL 6, 2022 9:26 AM >(JTA [Jewish Telegraph Agency]) — Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s Jewish president, said his country will look more like Israel, a democracy on constant military alert, than like their more relaxed European neighbors, given the prospect of long-term tensions with Russia. >“We will become a ‘big Israel’ with its own face,” Zelensky said Tuesday at a briefing for Ukrainian media, Haaretz reported. “We will not be surprised if we have representatives of the armed forces or the national guard in cinemas, supermarkets, and people with weapons. I am confident that the question of security will be issue number one for the next ten years. I am sure of it.” >Armed soldiers are ubiquitous in Israel, where there is a mandatory draft for men and women and where men may do weeks of reserve duty every year into their 40s. Zelensky clarified that he was not anticipating an autocracy. “An authoritarian state would lose to Russia,” he said. “People know what they are fighting for.” >Russia’s war against Ukraine, in its fifth week, has drawn into battle civilians who have been rapidly trained in the use of rifles and other means of combat. >“Ukraine will definitely not be what we wanted it to be from the beginning. It is impossible,” Zelensky said. “Absolutely liberal, European – it will not be like that. It will definitely come from the strength of every house, every building, every person.” https://www.jta.org/2022/04/06/global/zelensky-ukraine-will-look-more-like-big-israel-than-europe-in-the-wake-of-russias-war https://archive.ph/vSU9Y

Zelensky Says He’s 'No Longer Interested' In NATO's Diplomacy https://archive.ph/SzjyQ >Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has not let up on his criticism of NATO and told 60 Minutes in an interview that aired Sunday that he is “no longer interested” in the military alliance’s diplomacy. >“When you’re working in diplomacy, there are no results. All of this is very bureaucratic,” Zelensky said when asked about recent harsh comments about NATO. “That’s why the way I am talking to them is absolutely justified. I don’t have any more lives to give. I don’t have any more emotions. I’m no longer interested in their diplomacy that leads to the destruction of my country.” Screenshot/Image source: CBS >Since Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24, Zelensky has been pleading with the US and NATO to enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine, which would mean the Western powers entering a direct conflict with Russia. For not going to war with Russia, Zelensky has slammed NATO as being “weak” and “afraid” of Moscow. >Discussing negotiations with Russia, Zelensky said he would never recognize Crimea as Russian territory even though the peninsula has been under Russian control since 2014. As part of a potential peace deal, Moscow also wants Kyiv to recognize the independence of the breakaway Donbas republics of Donestk and Luhansk. >When asked if he was willing to give up any Ukrainian territory for peace, Zelensky said, “Overall we are not ready to give away our country. I think we have already given up a lot of [lives]. So, we need to stand firm for as long as we can. But this is life. Different things happen.” >“We understand one of their provisions that is always talked about is to recognize Crimea as Russian territory. I will definitely not recognize that,” he added. >The Ukrainian leader said that his country hadn’t been willing to cede territory from the beginning. “Had we been willing to give up our territory, there would have been no war,” Zelensky said. Putin Says Ukraine Talks At "Dead End" https://archive.ph/wip/KmvgV >Talks with Ukraine have reached "a dead end," Russian President Vladimir Putin said in fresh Tuesday remarks. "We will not stop military operations in Ukraine until they succeed." He explained that Ukraine has "deviated" from agreements and any possible prior progress reached during the Istanbul meetings, according to state-run RIA. >The strong remarks aimed at both Kiev and the West were given during a joint presser with his Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko. He further hailed that the military operations is still going "according to plan," Bloomberg reports, however while admitting to the domestic population that "Russian logistics and payment systems remain a weakness and the long-term impact of western measures could be more painful." But he also said the county has withstood the economic "blitzkrieg" from the West. >Putin described that what's happening in Ukraine is a "tragedy" but that ultimately Russia had "no choice" but to launch the special military operation. >As Piotr Zalewkski ofThe Economist comments, this is hardly surprising, but it makes Turkey look bad. Few put much faith that the talks would succeed, but still it's not a "good look for Turkey, which had been trumpeting progress where there was next to no progress to speak of." >Putin said that the West was seeking to turn Ukraine into an "anti-Russian foothold" which made... >"Russia clashing with those forces was inevitable, and they were only choosing the time for an attack." >"The main goal is to help the people of Donbass [region in eastern Ukraine], whose independence we recognized. We were forced to do so because the Kiev authorities, pressed by the West, refused to comply with the Minsk agreements aimed at a peaceful solution of the Donbass-related problems," Putin explained. >The Russian leader confirmed that military operations are now focusing on liberating the Donbas region in Ukraine's east - something the Pentagon also said it has observed as reinforcements arrived in recent days. >Zelensky has also of late expressed frustration with both talks with Russia on the one hand and NATO inaction on the other... Ukraine's Zelensky Reveals His Red Line for Russia, Putin Peace Talkshttps://archive.ph/wip/QjKgJ >"We understand the Russian side. We understand one of their provisions has always been to recognize Crimea as Russian territory. I would definitely not let them recognize that," The beatings will continue until morale improves. Whether this whole thing ends up ultimately being a pyric victory for Russia or not is unknown, but the sum total of this seems to say that Ukraine's free trial of existence has expired. They're going to be ground into the fucking dust and in large part due to their retarded president.

Some "fasts" might simply prohibit specific ingredients like red meat (e.g. Christian fasts) or root vegetables (e.g. Indian religions), while allowing meals made without them. Other fasts might prohibit solid food for a time while allowing fluid intake. It's rarer to go all the way and prohibit consuming anything, even water.

Because basically there's only two resolutions to this: Go to war with Russia to bring Poutine to justice- Which results in nuclear war immediately. State that "Pootie Tang's a bad man that genocides and war criminals people... but he's got the A-bomb so we can't do nothing." Which pretty much de-fangs the concept of genocide and war crimes and encourages nuclear proliferation by any future genociders and "genociders"- Which results in nuclear war eventually. At some point in the future. Those aren't really ideal outcomes.

>>31968 >>31965 It's been clear from the start that to end this, the Russians must see their error and cease protecting war criminals like Putin. The US is already doing things, namely the sanctions. Though, there needs to be more done to prevent other countries like India and China from assisting Russia. Then, the Russians will see that to make themselves a Pariah state is not a valid option, and they will arrest Putin and his minions and deliver them to the sword of justice and set up a new government that isn't going to go rogue. As for nuclear disarmament, this war has already killed the concept entirely, and the Crimean annexation wounded it massively. Russia had agreed to not only not attack Ukraine, but assist it should it be attacked, and the US has too, as long as they give up their nukes. Then Putin attacked it and now he tries to deliver the finishing blow. It'd be folly to think that nobody took notice back in 2014 or at the start of this war. Even if Ukraine wins, the US did not help directly, and Russia just ignored the agreement entirely. There's public calls for nukes now even in Japan, and if it's public now, chances are high some government blackops has been working on it for a good time already obviously, they can't announce an attention to get nukes without China coming for them, they have to just come out and say we've got a hundred nukes pointed at Beijing, give us a reason, commies

The flagship of the Russian Black Sea Fleet has been blown up and sunk. Reports are conflicting as to the cause. Russian regime propaganda claims gopniks smoking near ammo crates did it, apparently not noticing that this still reflects badly on their undisciplined and untrained naval forces due to their tiny communist brains. Ukrainian sources state that the defenders of Ukraine have successfully carried out a cunning operation involving two Neptune missiles, as recently given by the UK to aid in the defense against Russian aggression. But no matter if one falls for propaganda or is able to discern truth, this is a great victory. Inb4 >noooo, I thought the Russian navy was undefeatable, Vatnikbros hold me
>>31974 It's not an either/or proposition, yes IP hopping is not hard if you have above-room-temperature-IQ but filtering out the bulk of idiots doesn't hurt either.
>>32009 It's somewhere in between, as usual. It wasn't an accident. But neither was it a cunning operation. Rather the Russian navy got too lazy or cocky and delivered themselves into Ukraine's hand. That, and this week Ukraine blew up a section of a major train bridge near Belgorod. If there are weaknesses in the Russian campaign, then it's with the navy and Kharkiv operation. Like, how does any military allow "safe" assets to be given away for free like that, if not for incompetence in those particular areas?

>>32025 >>32026 Translator trough vodkarunes said they will put him on trial. Probably gonna be a prison sentence, doubt they will do justice and kill him, for some reason Russians still care what west thinks of them. Also, some reports say 'Moskva' has kept its bouyancy, no definitive answer for what actually happened, all they said so far is that fire caused detonation of ammunition (Probably gun, CIWS or VLS, since they said main missile armaments are still fine), but no clear consensus on what caused fire, could be Ukrainian ASM, drifting mine or slav being slavs and smoking a cigarette on top of 5 metric tons of ammo.
This issue for Ukraine is out-of-service ships can be serviced in short order if the Russians really need the ship, while sunk ships cannot, so a buoyant ship is a usable ship. From the sounds of it the Ukrainians are acting on pure emotion at having their plans to evacuate Azov stopped in their tracks. If that's the case the Ukrainians have already lost the war (as has been speculated) and are now lashing out like wild animals driven into a corner. God forbid someone in power take the initiative to have Zelensky suicide by 9 shots to the back of the head and sign a ceasefire agreement with Russia that recognizes Crimea as Russian, federates Ukraine to make it a true democracy, and recognizes the autonomy of the LNR/DNR in order to save their skins by maintaining Odessa as a forward port for food exports so their country doesn't become the new Moldova with a GDP lower than most of Africa.
Short cut of questioning of British guy, also there is a video of USA citizen, mercenary, KIA, his documents were captured by Russians or DNR.

If that's the case the Ukrainians have already lost the war (as has been speculated) and are now lashing out like wild animals driven into a corner. Related to this, Russian sources report Ukrainian POW's from Mariupol attempted to break through the siege because Kiev promised the now-POW's support in a town north of Mariupol that is under Russian control for a long time. From this Russian sources speculate Kiev is trying to coax besieged Ukrainians into suicidal charges so Kiev can turn those soldiers into martyrs for propaganda. If this is true, then I guess that's why Russia is taking its time with Azov remnants and doing things like >>31911, so that Russia might ignobly capture/kill Azov and deny Kiev from idolizing Azov's last stand.

>>32062 Just saw it, came here to post it. Dang man, that was expensive. It getting rekt by ASM, mine or accident is kinda equally embarrassing. Such is the chaos of war. Still, one ship won't change the course of upcoming land battle. Some speculate that the offensive will begin within the next 48h.
>>32058 That's because the storm story is probably BS. Since Ukraine claimed it sank yesterday, chances are the thing took on so much water, it was clear it was going to sink and the Russians just did the whole thing as a way to save face. >Ukraine didn't sink our flagship... a nonexistent storm did it
>>32063 >Still, one ship won't change the course of upcoming land battle. Odessa is on the menu sooner or later. It'll hurt for that operation. I don't know anything about effective ranges for Russia's Black Sea navy vs. ASM's; however, if it's true ASM's struck the missile cruiser, then maybe Ukraine could open up enough of the Black Sea to get supplies in through Odessa and further prolong the war.
>>32064 I wonder why would Pentagon say the same thing about the ship in that case.
>>32065 Doubt they can deblock themselves. Russians deleted most of Ukrainian navy day one, according to the reports. Even with the loss of Moskva, Black Sea Fleet still retains supremacy. However, loss of cruiser is certainly to have an impact on morale, not so much of lowering Russian morale, but strengthening Ukrainian, especially with the whole mass surrender at Mariupol.

>>32065 They still have to get around Russia to do that. Specifically Snake Island and a few other islands that the Russians commandeered the military bases of. Even then it would be used for exporting crops for cash inflow. >>32067 >Russians deleted most of Ukrainian navy day one You're being too generous to the Ukrainians. They never had a navy to begin with, just a handful of ships for their marines. >However, loss of cruiser is certainly to have an impact on morale Definitely. Russia can't get more ships into the black sea due to Turkey cucking them so whenever they lose a ship they can't replace it without starting an international conflict in Turkey. The watermelon salesman has been surprisingly quiet with a large Russian fleet on either side of his country recently.
>>32071 Is it really gonna be a battle? Whoever owns the hills at Izyum is the god of artillery for several miles.
>>32072 >You're being too generous to the Ukrainians. They never had a navy to begin with, just a handful of ships for their marines I mean... you're not wrong. >Russia can't get more ships into the black sea This is kinda the most impactful part. At least with king roach upholding the treaty, there's no way to reinforce BSG while the conflict is on. Russia still however retains smaller Frigate/ Destroyer/PB sized ships, all packed with VLC, where you can launch cruise missiles from. >>32073 >Is it really gonna be a battle? Whoever owns the hills at Izyum is the god of artillery for several miles It was gonna be a slaughter, given how ex commie countries still have, in my opinion, best artillery, both quantity and throw weight, and Russia has concentrated a lot of artillery in the recent build up. But burgers are pouring in more and more heavy ordnance into Ukraine, especially interesting are the switchblades, those things sound nasty, no ide how will they preforme tho, depends on Russian ability to shoot them down. Or they can blow em up if they find out where they're being stored. They're also sending some counter battery radars. So, it should give Ukrainians a theoretical chance to win battle. But that's just my opinion, we're just gonna have to wait and see how it plays out.
>>32060 >BBC claims it was announced by "state media". They neglect to say which state's media though, and Ukraine has been claiming it sank since the moment of the explosion. >MI6 claims it was announced by "state-craft". Spooks neglect to say whose propaganda though, and Nazis have been claiming it sleeps with the fish since the moment of fubar. OK 2023 NYT headline: Here's why commercial airlines getting fitted with countermeasures against Afghan & Ukrainian black market surplus missiles is a good thing...
>>32063 >within the next 48h. Well I hope Russia does something big soon. The USA's suicide 'Switchblade' drones sound like something Russia may or may not struggle to deal with. And if Russian sources are to be believed, the USA is in de facto command of Ukraine's defensive strategy now. I mean, the USA probably was already. But it is more open about it now, perhaps.
>>32076 >48h Its just a speculation, so don't hold it for certainty. This speculation was derived form few sources that were monitoring the build up of Russian troops, so not exactly the most reliable source, but it's possible. Then again, Russia might want to grind Ukrainian forces with artillery for more time and move out only when they feel comfortable. There are a lot of videos popping up recently of destroyed Ukrainian fortification, littered with bodes from Russian artillery strikes. Only Russian high command knows for sure when the trigger will be pulled. The Ukrainians have been bombing villages at the Russian side of border recently, so that may force their hand to kick off offensive sooner rather than later. Also, there are reports of Ukraine pulling forces out of Odessa and moving them to Kherson, for possible offensive. Which means Russians have to divert some forces there to hold the line. It would be the funniest shit ever if Russians pulled a maskirovka about Moskva, to lul Ukrainians into flase sense of security and move brigades out of Odessa, though this seems highly unlikely, due to the fact that you kinda can't hide a Cruiser in today's time So, the best case scenario for the Russia is to deliver such an overwhelming victory against UAF that even mostly demechanized forces that Ukraine has at its disposition, refuses to continue a war and somebody finally puts a bullet into Zelenskys thick skull.
>>32077 To add, looks like Ukranins pissed off Russians with the bombing of Russian villages, there are reports of big artillery/missile strikes in Kiev and Kharkov tonight.

>>32103 At the very least someone was mucking about with the audio timing. Between open sea and camera zoom I can't make a real estimate of distance but it's obviously far enough away that the sound should have noticeable delay from the explosion.
>>32104 Definitely. I intended to listen to the reaction to try to judge which side had taken the video, but that was obviously out the window because of the editing. Though the existence of the video at all does itself suggest an AShM, since it would mean there might be people who knew something was going to happen. If the Ukrainians did do it, then obviously the questions start becoming about why the anti-missile defenses failed. Where were CIWS and the various other layers?

The USNATO better hope that the Ukranians can prove that they did it all by themselves, even if they didn't. ESPECIALLY if they didn't. Because Russia decides correctly or incorrectly that the US had something directly to do with this the shit could escalate out of control very quickly. Hell them claiming that Ivan and Boris squatting too hard next to the munitions might be a signal that they believe that this was a NATO strike under false flag of a Ukrainian strike and they're trying to give the US mulligan and deescalate things. Alternately they may be using the strike as a proper excuse to attack Ukraine all out and the deescalation is just a bonus consequence. >>32078 >>32100 Seems like Ukraine or "Ukraine" has finally stepped over the Fuck around and find out line.

>>32149 why are so many slavs nazis when that doctrine says over and over again that all slavs are subhuman
>>32151 For slavs their options were the godless USSR or the Nazis who were willing to work with Orthodox Christians. In many slav parts of the world they view the crimes of the USSR in much worse light than Hitler's. I mean, go figure, the USSR killed more people.
>>32151 Just the stupid/shitty slavs. You'd have to be pretty retarded to be part of ideology that actively encouraged your destruction. There is fundamental divide between 'western europe' and 'slav europe'. Slavs are never gonna be considered equal by the western Europeans, at best they're gonna be considered as pets if they're wiling to be useful idiots and cannon fodder, see croats and polacks for most recent examples. USSR being comically retarded, killing both accidentally and on purpose doesn't help either. tl;dr Slavs are various degrees of retardation, some more, some less.
When can one expect small loitering munitions to end up in the hands of eastern European criminal organizations/mudshit refugees in western Europe and how would law enforcement deal with it?
>>32154 America has only sent a few hundred of them over, so at most you might see a handful escape the country with the rest being used given the rate at which the Ukrainians deplete munitions. As soon as the Ukrainian-Polish border becomes solvent the munitions will likely appear in Western Europe, so at the rate both Russia and Ukraine are ramping up hostilities after the Belgorod incident... Either about 6 months from now or two years from now depending.
>>32153 I am croat descended and I am telling you to go fuck yourself
>>32151 It doesnt say that. Read a book you fucking nigger. >>32154 I hope to get myself a tank after it is over.
>>32157 >I am croat descended My condolences. I'd be angry too if I was unfortunate enough to be descended of croats.
>>32157 At least you're not Alb*nian.
>>32151 >>32153 Somebody tell these two mongoloids that they aren't German National Socialists, they are Slavic National Socialists. National Socialism doesn't refer to any race and species as subhuman. But then again this is nu/k/ in the year 2022 so I can understand why the post quality has plummeted lately.
>>32161 I just like freedom and money so I can't care about infighting.
>>32161 If they were slavic national socialists you'd expect them to work towards unity with their ethnic brethren, instead of just larping as germanic nazis and fighting on the side of globohomo. They're worse than nazis, they're a nazi cargo cult whose only purpose is to fight Russians, with no philosophy or substance beyond that.

>>32161 This is revisionist nonsense. National Socialism was a Germanocentric ideology, and Slavs were by and large seen by Nazi leaders as an inferior race.
>>32164 Historically they fought alongside the nazis, just as a point of reference, so the German LARPing at least makes sense.
In any case, what does this have to do with the war? Anon isn't even talking about Azov battalion at this point.
I wonder how many vehicles were actually destroyed as in totaled. Very few pics that I have seen were of destroyed tanks that couldnt be restored in a day or two. And then there is a question of salvage- do both sides even have the capacity to move captured vehicles? It is pretty likely that a large part of immobilized , and abandoned during the early logistical troubles russian vehicles have been recaptured.
>>32169 Difficult to say. I've only seen few of captured Russian tanks in Ukrainian service. It's quite possible that crew disabled the tank in one way or another, by taking out or destroying key components, especially FCC or the like. If they just left them intact, then that's extremely retarded move by the Russians. There's no point in demilitarizing somebody if you're just gonna gift them tanks. Russians have also been bombing Ukrainian tank repair facilities, especially the ones near Kharkov and Kiev, so that is also a factor. As for the numbers of destroyed, impossible to know exactly. Oryx has been counting destroyed Ukrainian tanks as destroyed Russian on multiple occasions, even when people pointed out the specific camouflage pattern used by the UAF and the lack of marks on the destroyed tanks. Russian MoD has been putting out some videos of Ukrainian tanks getting hit by ATGM and counted as destroyed, but unless you see that turret tossed, impossible to say 100%, it could have been ERA.

Untermensch was used ad-hoc to demean enemies, political rivals and immoral people in general; it's a rhetorical bludgeon like cuck or chud, not purely or explicitly a racial term. I'm not read up on the subject though, so their could be some German big-wig as-a-matter-of-fact'ly condemning the slavs as inferior.

>Russia claims to have found NATO military personnel among Ukrainian POW's. [In Mariupol?] >But Russia will wait for military trials to start before releasing more information. Why does Russia have to be such a tease? Moreover when does Russia stop fucking around with believing it can mend ties with the West now that Russia allegedly has explicit evidence that's in a de facto war with NATO? I guess Russia deploying these beauties >>32183 has something to do with this.
>>32186 Military correspondent Sladkov(?) said they had captured NATO personnel, he seemed pleased when making the remark, but didn't go into any details. So far he was reliable source of information as he backed up claims with videos. Could be that they mistook western mercenaries as NATO personnel,athough its safe to assume that NATO is advising Ukrainian Army, if not directly controlling it. All we know that west and Ukraine were frantic in trying to evacuate Mariupol. Even going far as to losing a few helicopters and ships in the attempt.
>>32151 Pick one or more: 1) most right wing / conservatives in Slav countries had ancestors who fought against Communism / Democratic Socialism / as part of SS led partisans so they think they are honoring their dead 2) it's an easy form of nation building (especially in ukraine) for people from countries that do not have a well defined ideology post soviet bloc collapse 3) it has the practical use of conflating national socialism with white identity, meaning that foreign white supremacist groups are more likely to help and intervene in their favor 4) general edgelord behavior no different from thinking that Q exists or wearing ACAB shirts Alsoo the doctrine you are speaking of does not exist. Hitler defined National Socialism as Socialism directed towards the German people and anyone that had even one gorillionth of German blood. Himmler wanted to basically remmove every race but the pure Anglo Franco Germanic ones. Other SS and military staff adopted NatSoc lite and decided that a compliant slav cattle race was much more preferrable to removing or enslaving 10% of the world population. Basically, being Socialism, you can spin a million different interpretations and so long as you are achieving something it can be considered real socialism. I mean fucking Evola thought we wuz giants from the artic n shiet. Also >>32161this is correct.

Reports of Russians deploying Murmansk-TV electronic warfare system. Not much information on it, fount this "The complex is designed to jam short-wave radio communication lines at a range of up to 5 thousand kilometers, which blinds enemy command posts. Murmansk can also conduct radio reconnaissance and intercept enemy signals." So I guess they want to use this systems to both inhibit effective communication of UAF, and maybe counter the drones and the new 'Switchblade' UAV.?
>>32159 Croatians are the superior slavonic people. Hohols are notorious faggots, maybe they are your type.
>>32189 >4) general edgelord behavior no different from thinking that Q exists or wearing ACAB shirts Being a Nazi was a rather standard way of sticking it to the man in the Eastern Block, as saying that Hitler was a pretty cool guy was worse than saying that you want to be sodomized by Satan. As such, being at least an ironic Nazi is rather standard in most of Eastern Europe to this day, and some people just take it more seriously. Combine it with Russia doubling down on ww2 propaganda in recent years, and it's the best way to piss them off.
>>32190 My guess is to stop the switchblade drones as Ukraine doesn't have an airforce left and to just disrupt Ukrainian communications in preparation for an attack. I imagine the Russians are trying their best to reverse engineer and counter new western tech before the west potentially gets involved proper. Especially now that NATO personnel is confirmed to be in Ukraine the quicker they can destroy the remainder of the Ukrainian army the better.
>>32176 He's literally jewish, and even if he wasn't the fact he's ex-KGB and has direct ties to the WEF is reason enough to not trust him. Just because your enemy is a retarded faggot like hoholistan doesn't make your enemy's enemy a good friend.
>>32190 This is one of those things that both sides will never admit to if it works greatly or not given it would showcase weaknesses in either the drones or the jammer, or maybe both.
>>32176 >(1)
1. This is a gentlemen's club not a shitting street.
>>32185 The top brass widely considered Slavs as a whole to be inferior, although how inferior varied depending on the group in question. Sex between Germans and Poles was considered race defilement and subject to harsh punishment.
>>32195 This man has an impeccably Slavic face and temperament. Meanwhile you are whining about Jews while shilling for a Zio caricature.
>>32198 As the war wore on the Nazism gradually and wisely became pan-European in outlook. This is why the Waffen SS came into existence. Part of this was pragmatic but it also indicated a deeper policy shift. Hitler's mistake was not being Pan-European from the beginning and instituting Total War policy before 1939 instead of waiting until 1942. The Germans were remarkably and uncharacteristically short-sighted in WW2, but so were the French and British, and the Russians. Such was the incomprehensible trauma of WW1 I suppose.
>>31732 >>31736 > Brazil will assassinate people who try to make Brazil number one Yes but not because they don't want to be the best, it's because they don't want to work for it aka the Greek Syndrome. Carlos Ghosn somewhat explained it in some articles, japs even moved some of the factories to Venezuela (pre-gommunism) due to it. The work ethic is bad other than in the deep south but still that has changed in the last decades.
>>32151 >nazis when that doctrine says over and over again that all slavs are subhuman t. hasn't read the books
>>32200 The pan-Europeanist outlook seems to have been present among some people pretty early on judging from what Johann Voss wrote in Black Edelweiss. He claims to have first heard about the Waffen-SS as a pan-European crusade against communism from a family friend a few years older than him who was a young military man with experience on the Eastern front. Voss himself ended up joining the Waffen-SS in 1942 and spent most of his time in Karelia fighting the Soviets but soured on Nazism after the war. Memoirs aren't necessarily a good indication of what actually happened, but supposedly the majority of the book was written immediately after the war. And in any case, it's hard to tell how sincere the the pan-European sentiment was on the part of the recruiters. Many volunteers were certainly sincere, but they weren't trying to bring in cannon fodder for a living. I've read that even Dutch volunteers were shat on for their background at first before their military value was realized. It was definitely a mistake for the Nazi leaders to be so hung up on "Aryanism" and national chauvinism for so long.
New meta thread/greetings thread: >>32204 While I'm here tripfagging like a fag, I believe the national socialist discussion should be moved to the history thread or /k/anteen at this time if not in the context of the war in Ukraine, so that this thread can get back to its designated topic. Thank you for your understanding.
>>32195 >He's literally jewish He's not, the only "proof" I've seen anywhere was some obviously photoshopped ID picture and the fact that his mother's surname was "Shelomova" (actually completely unrelated to jews, "shelom" is just an archaic Russian word for a helmet).
>>32200 >This is why the Waffen SS came into existence. No, the Waffen SS came into existence because Himmler was a massive autist, and due to the strangely competitive and fragmented nature of Germany's administration at that time, he was able to create his own pet version of anything he wanted, from a secret service to manufacturing hubs, and even his own army in thee form of the Waffen SS. What changed is that due to the legal loophole of not being the actual German army, the Waffen SS could recruit anyone they wanted. First they recruited Germans from all over Europe, but as the war progressed they started to recruit anyone who opposed the allies. In addition, all these small units of foreigners that existed in the first half of the war were gradually transferred to be Waffen SS units.

Putin is fairly well-known as "that guy who ended the anti-Christian doctrines of Russia" so it goes hand-in-hand from a historical perspective.

Also >>32238 >WEF He got denounced on paper but I can't really comment too much since that could have been faked. The way the West shit the bed with the sanctions suggests he actually has been ousted.

>>32304 Neat. Thanks for the source. Will wait untill drawing any further conclusions, maybe there will be some other sources confirming the same thing in a day or two so we can say definitively. So far, if the reports of breakthrough at Popasnaya are true, looks like we're gonna see a standard pincer if RUAF swings down at Izyom and attempt to merge pincers with Popasnaya axis, although a smaller encirclement of around 20-30K Ukrainian troops if the reports of Ukrainian numbers are true. Still, doing that would unhinge the whole UAF defensive line at Donbass. I checked on satellite maps, there are dozens upon dozens of heavily fortified and entrenched Ukrainian strong points along the whole Donbass front. Impressive, really. Madlads could even try double pincer if one axis of advance goes to Popasnaya and other continue past Kamyenka and attempt wider, more of an operational encirclement.
>>32265 Zelensky either has all his/foreigners suicide attack the Ruskies til they leave or he flees the country and does TED talks for the rest of his life. It looks like he rather stay since he did all the work with the curfews and laws to increase his power as prime minister.
>>32302 >the exit of all without exception Ukrainian armed units and foreign mercenaries, without any weapons and ammunition. That's the exact strategy they used in Syria, though I'm not sure it will work as well as then.
>>32309 It'll depend on how much azov and any foreign mercenaries actually believe in their cause at this point. If they haven't surrendered by now then the Russians are probably in for another couple weeks of bullshit.
>>32315 Slavs are forgiving and patient with their own. They know that Ukraine forces have ethnic roots in the outskirts of Russia, so they do not want to hurt their own people too much.

Allegedly 3 Ukrainian tanks were destroyed while conducting a limited, tactical counterattack at Izyom. Russians report 2 were destroyed, one captured. They also found wounded Ukrainian tankman and were looking for his leg. Man, losing a limb is a shit way to end your military career. At least the war is over for him.
>>32348 If he survives
>>32349 The war is over for him either way. Also some update on dead Ukrainian soldier, who's dead body picture surfaced on the internet. Pro Russian source: >The day before, we published a photo showing how neo-Nazis from Azov threw the corpse of their colleague into a trash can. The NM DPR fighters later examined the body and came to the conclusion that the dead Azov militant they found was in fact executed by his colleagues. >Moreover, an examination of the things and other “evidence” that he had with him allows us to conclude that the military man executed by the “Azov” was a foreigner. The special services have already taken control of this case, and consultants with extensive experience in the field of forensic examination and genetic examination are inclined to believe that this is a native of the Middle East - most likely Turkomans
>>32350 These fucking watermarks are the worst development of this war. Especially these jumping ones.
>>32351 True. At least it's more or less opaque. Wargonzo is one of the better channels when it comes to the watermarks.
>>32343 >US gov state and it's employees tells you that it's the damn russians that did it >still no practical examples or hard evidence, just commissioned essays about it wewlad e w l a d
>>32350 Isn't white the colour of the Russians? Or did they make him wear that before execution? Although it looks like his head was also taped, so maybe he was an actual Russian, or if we go with the propaganda logic, they might have decked him out as one to make it look like they executed a PoW instead of one of their comrades. Occam's razor makes me think that it was a Russian PoW, but I cannot tell apart the two sides based on their uniforms. Besides, maybe it was a member of Azov the Russians executed, and now they say it was done by his comrades. This war just makes my head hurt.
>>32356 No idea. There are however instances where Ukrainians drew Z on their vehicles in order to fool Russians, last time that happened was few days ago, when 36th Marine Brigade tried to brake out of Mariupol. Didn't end well for them. It wouldn't be far off that somebody decided to have a white armband and try to syphon out of Mariupol. Or it could be some fuckery going on over there. Once again, nothing, from either side should be taken at face value.
>>32356 Maybe it is just bandage?
>>32356 Some say the white bands are just for civvie identification with no implications of allegiance to either side.

>>32346 >Mug Yugoslavia This is what, the third time you've brought this example up while having a /pol/-tier surface-level understanding of events? The Yugoslav Wars were a result of this communist fuck centralizing authority and then having a shit fit when all of his surrounding territories were tired of his shit and unanimously voted to oust his power base leading to mass atrocities in the age before the internet, probably the last of its kind. Much like the Holodomor, it was the result of communists being communists and trying to centralize power and authority where it was not wanted. Communism has historically bred genocide. That has nothing to do with your shitty-ass historically inaccurate racialist theory you've been spouting like a fucking retard.
>>32349 If he does he'll have a cool new nickname; Stumpy!
>>32351 >>32353 I've honestly mentally filtered them out at this point.
Slavs were known for treating wach other like shit and genociding one another long before communiam though. Fuckin Genghis Kahn used this to his advantage by abusing rival slav kingdoms' animosity towards one another to keep them from uniting against him until it was far too late and the horde had already turned their eyes towards Hungary and the like.
Genghis Kahn relied on that tactic for everyone. His policy consisted of offering "surrender" and then making an example of/genociding the ones who fought back but didn't fight back hard enough to convince the others to side with him. That's not unique to the slavs.
>>32370 I think you just don't want to admit slavs are the Mexicans of Europe. Most of the people Genghis Khan conquered at the time weren't killing their own people before he even showed up.

>>32373 Acting like a bitch and pretending you're smug while saying vague shit about my "lack of context" doesn't make your claim about slavs being tolerant and patient with one another any less wrong and stupid. Figures a touhoufag would behave like a tranny. Shit Poland's entire history of interactions with the rest of the slavic world alone is a perfect example of how fucking wrong you are, and the various tribes of the Ukraine have been slapping the shit out of one another since the Roman days.

>>32386 The theory I've seen is the missile cruiser sent itself on a dick waving mission close to the coast and got missile'd because of it. And so it wasn't an accident, but Slavs were still being stupid.
>>32386 Knowing how bad the Russian surface fleet is, it's actually not impossible that it's both. Russian damage control practice is not impressive, to say the least, between them and the Chinese, they still manage to make the Americans' look like the picture of textbook performance. So it's not unthinkable that they got a missile to the face, tried to take it under tow, and then some dumbass onboard lit up a cig around gas and ammunition.

The boy calls it a sunken destroyer (esminec), a ship, not a sub, and that allows people to draw parallels with the recent sinking of the Moskva. But the core of the funny is in the markings on the ship, "Z29", the boy notices the markings and says, literally, "Boy 1 [That explains it. It's a fashist destroyer.] Boy 2 [How do you know?] Boy 1 [I've read about it. Fascist destroyers used to get marked with a letter "Z"]" >>32401 > These are Azov's hostages.mp4 cringe and invalid, +36 rub (adjusted for inflation)

Fights have been steadily rising in intensity in the last few hours along the Donbass front. Looks like the offensive is about to begin.
>>32402 The best part about the statues is it got torn down previously in 2019 and the mayor insisted on putting it back up as a big "fuck you" to protestors. >>32409 Allegedly the kid is the daughter of some medic that's been taking care of wounded Azov soldiers. So either the mother is violating the hippocratic oath and intentionally using her child as a hostage, or the mother is being held hostage along with the child at this point, based on earlier videos of Azov killing their own for deserting.

Neat pictures of close explosion caught by GoPro. Post following is comment from Russian soldier fighting south of Iziyum. Not sure if it's the said soldier that cough the explosion on camera and survived or taken off somebody, not even sure which side of combatants capture the footage.

>>32183 I think right at the beginning of the war there were similar videos posted. And they are from 2 years ago I think, from a Russian parade. >>32190 I actually thought they would have used this right in the morning of the invasion. Why were they so retarded? >>32402 >the issue of Confederate or Colonial statues gets torn down but give zero shit about commie statues receiving the same treatment I mean, these are quite different. Or maybe the same, if one were to look at the US as two separate groups, one of which delusional, the other actively fighting against the other. Regardless, Communist era monuments have always been imposed by a foreign power (Russia). I don't really see the problem here if the monuments of the aggressor get torn down. It's always Russia screeching about fascists and nazis everytime someone even touches one of those shitbricks they've built here.
>>32435 Just the window part with dancing Z-chan would be nice.
>>32423 These images were taken during mine clearance.
>>32442 >I actually thought they would have used this right in the morning of the invasion. They did used smaller, mobile EW suites, Murmansk-TB (or whatever last two letters are) is a strategic asset. Probably brought up to counter liberal proliferation of new UAV to Ukraine by the west. >>32444 Ere' you go strelok. Also, check'd >>32445 >These images were taken during mine clearance. Actually, you're probably right. I've seen Ukrainians claim the footage is taken off dead Russian soldier, but the Telegram channel I got it off is allegedly original source of the picture, and it was posted by Russians, so you know, I have no idea who's telling the truth.
>>32442 That airshow video was a lot more elaborate. It's almost certainly the same sort of thing (it looks like it an aerial refueling demonstration), but the actual video you remember isn't that one.
Also, looks like we're in for fun times. Massive artillery barrages reported along the whole Donbass front in the last hour or two. Probably gonna last throughout the night, morning should be marked by the ground offensive. Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak: "The second phase of the war has begun"

>>32456 That seems to be the best strategy given the Russian capture of Izyum and entrenchment of Ukrainian forces.

It also helps explain as to why Ukraine is going through a weeks worth of equipment in about a day.

So far, it looks like if Russia is going to struggle against anything, it's the Kharkiv region. It's the only region in eastern Ukraine that is consistently stalling advancing Russian forces, as far as I can tell. And it apparently has enough firepower left to launch its own counter-offensive against Russia (or it's just suicidally desperate.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaShrMCrJgA

Knowing that Soviets forced liberated lands to pay tribute to them is more important than removing such tributes in the first place. It teaches its people to watch out for the fucking communists, at the very least.

Greece just seized an oil tanker.
>>32505 So what exactly is the new mission objective for the war? Originally I recall anons claiming the Russians almost achieved the disarmament of the Ukrainian army. Would it possibly entail securing the Donbass for good?
>>32507 Presumably to get Ukraine to voluntarily agree to terms of surrender or an armistice, as was the objective since the beginning or March. Barring that, to establish a geographical border between Russia and the West to secure Russian assets and integrity. Kharkiv is about the furthest Russia realistically needs to push, but the more damage Russians take, the more concessions they will take too. At the current rate, I imagine the sacking of Donbass region's elite soldiers and the sacking of the city of Odessa robbing Ukraine of their port authority (in part or in full) will be the end result. This of course relegating them to an agricultural landlocked body to the NorthWest of the Dnieper consisting primarily of Poles will be the end result unless someone puts a bullet in Zelensky's head in the next month or the Russians botch this cauldron operation horribly.
>>32508 >as was the objective since the beginning or March. Anon thats bullshit and you know it, the terms were completely unnaeptable and if it had been your country you too would be fighting.
>>32509 >you too would be fighting Come on now, by the first or second week of March they had already pummeled air bases and chomped half of the army using a fraction of their forces and withstanding the sanctions, realistically speaking they knew they were fucked by then. If it had been your country you would've not poked the bear so much, Ukraine is far away from the west or a critical area to play Turkey antics of "neutrality"

>>32520 >And you achieve that with fighting and making a victory costly Or you end up looking like a fucking retard to where most of your people are running into Russia's arms because at least the Russians aren't using them as human shields.

>>32529 Those terms are untenable to a leader who wants nukes and be a regional power like so many other countries. Only Zelensky is able to host Ukraine as the modern cold war fighting ground for free weapons and guaranteed control of the country.

>>32566 Kherson was actually captured liberated without much resistance. Russians have been consolidating there, putting rubles in circulation and buying agricultural goods off populace there for rubles. All of this indicates that they want to keep whole Kherson region, and once combat operations are finished in Donbass, they would have their land bridge to Crimea, as well as securing water supply to Crimea that Ukrainians have been blocking.. Provided all goes according to Russian plans.

For the past 168 years, your military has been a pile of shit historically that was only able to throw bodies at the other side until they give in, and every neighboring country has only contempt for your disgusting degenerative kind. Monke then, Monke now Here's an article too. > THE ECONOMIST, October 14th, 1854 > perennial sources of Russian weakness >A YEAR ago we ventured to hint that it might be worthwhile for Europe to go to war with Russia for the sake of information — in order to ascertain that is whether her strength was that of the bully or the giant — whether she was really entitled to dictate and domineer as she habitually did — whether, in a word, she was mighty in virtue of her own inherent force, or only in virtue of the ignorant timidity of her foes and rivals. We pointed out several notable sources of weakness in her institutions; we directed attention to the fact that nearly all her great acquisitions had been secured not by fighting but by bullying and intriguing; that diplomacy and not war had always been her favorite weapon; that she kept up such an enormous army on paper that all secondary States had arrived at the conclusion that resistance to her will was hopeless, but that in general she bad carefully abstained from coming into actual armed collision with any first rate Power. We expressed an opinion, too, that there was no reason whatever to suppose that her armies were as effective now as in 1815, when they were supported by the subsidies of England and trained and disciplined by wars with France; and we ventured to surmise that when they came into actual conflict with competent forces and skillful commanders they would exhibit a degree of feebleness and failure that would cause general amazement. >Our suspicions have been more than realized. We know now that even in 1829, when the Russian troops came into collision with none but raw and half-trained Turkish recruits, who had abandoned their old costume and mode of fighting, and had not yet got accustomed to its substitute, they were so far from achieving victory that they were only saved from utter annihilation by a treaty which the Ambassadors at Constantinople, in Ignorance of the facts, persuaded the Sultan Into signing, and which the Sultan, in equal ignorance, was terrified into believing necessary. Since then, the Circassian mountaineers have set at naught the whole forces of the Russian Empire for nearly a quarter of a century, and have destroyed army after army, at the rate, it is said, of 29,000 men per annum. No sooner did the present war with Turkey break out, than a host of similar facts, all pointing to the same conclusion, came to light. The Russians were the aggressors and ought to have been the best prepared: in fact for mouths we had heard of the vast armies which were pouring into the Principalities or converging from all parts of the Empire towards the seat of war. The Ottoman forces were supposed to be inferior in numbers, and no one had any confidence in their power of withstanding their Muscovite assailants. Yet in nearly every engagement, whether fighting behind their own entrenchments, as at Saida, or storming those of the enemy, as at Csitate—whether crossing the river to attack, as at Giurgevo, or preventing the passage, as at ltutschuk—they were signally and sanguinary victorious; and at Silistria they sustained and repelled assaults behind mud walls as none but Spaniards have ever done before. >>Everywhere the Russians were defeated by inferior numbers. At Bomarsund they appear to have surrendered far more easily than was decorous, though ultimate surrender was no doubt Inevitable. While at Alibis, though they were In a position deemed impregnable, and though they seem for a while to have fought bard, yet in three hours they were driven front entrenchments which their commander expected them to be able to make good for three weeks. We most admit, certainly, that against the elite of the French and English armies fighting side by side, no fortifications and no troops could hold out long, or hope for final success; but still none anticipated so speedy or signal a defeat. >This unexpected weakness of Russia in military matters arises from four concurring causes, of which three are inherent in her system, and, if not absolutely incurable, are at nest little likely to be cured. >

Part 2/ >In the first place, the nature of the country and the want of roads. Her resources may be vast, but they are scattered and remote. Her forces may be immense, but they are necessarily in great measure distant from the scene of action. The very extent of her territory is against her. Her capital is a thousand miles from her most menaced and unquiet provinces. It takes three months, sometimes six months, to convey her troops to the districts where their presence is required. There are no railroad, and scarcely any common roads to convey them. They have to march--and what is worse, to drag baggage, ammunition, and artillery—over inhospitable and uncultivated steppes, scantily inhabited and affording few resources for even peaceful traveler. In no country could railways be so cheaply or easily constructed ; in no country are they so peculiarly and urgently needed;—yet only two, we believe, exist as yet, and few others are projected. Hence. when war is declared, a whole campaign will elapse before reinforcements can arrive at the place where they are needed. This will explain why the vast armies of Osten-Sacken and other Generals, which were announced as on their march to the Danube nearly a year ago, never reached that river at all; why of the 150,000 or 200,000 men who, we are told, occupied the Principalities, more than 70,000 never could be got together; and why we only find 50,000 troops in the Crimea, though nine months since it was proclaimed that reinforcements to the number if 70,000 had been ordered thither. The fact is, that thousands die or fall sick on the road; thousands more lag behind or desert; and those who do reach their destination reach it in an enfeebled condition and after incalculable and often irretrievable delays. >>Secondly. The Russian armies are often armies on paper only. Not only are their numbers far fewer than are stated in official returns and paid for out of the official purse, but they are notoriously ill-provided with everything necessary to the effective action of a soldier. The colonels of regiments and officers of the commissariat have a direct interest la having as large a number on the books and as small a number in the field as possible, in as much as they pocket the pay and rations of the difference between these figures. They have an interest also in the men being as inadequately fed and clothed as possible,—inasmuch as they pocket the difference between the sum allowed and the sum expended on the soldiers' rations and accoutrements. The Emperor provides (or believes he does) for the food, clothing, lodgings, arms and ammunition of 5 or 600,000 men, but every one of these who is or can be made non-existent is worth two or three hundred rubles to some dishonest official or officer; every pair of shoes or great coat intercepted from the wretched soldier is a bottle of champagne for the ensign or the major; every ammunition wagon which Is paid for by Government, but not provided, is a handsome addition to the salary of the captain or the contractor. Robbery and peculation of this sort is universal, in every rank, in every district, In every branch. It runs through every department In the Empire; and its operation upon the efficiency of the military service may be easily imagined and cannot be easily exaggerated. This horrible and fatal system originates in two sources—both, we fear, nearly hopeless, and certainly inherent In Russian Autocracy;—the rooted dishonesty of the national character, and the incurable inadequacy of despotic power. >>Cheating, bribery, peculation pervade the whole tribe of officials, and are, in fact, the key-note and characteristic of the entire administration. There seems to be no conscience, and not much concealment, about it. The officers are ill paid, and of course pay themselves. Regard for truth or integrity has no part in the Russian character. We have heard those who know them well say that there are only three honest men in the Empire: Woronzow is one, Nesselrode another—and men differ about the name of the third. We have heard statesmen, who strongly incline towards a Muscovite alliance, say that the Russians are liars above all things: it is their specialty. Then the power of the Autocrat, absolute as it is and vigorously as it is exercised, Is utterly insufficient to meet the evil. What can a despot do who has no instruments that can be trusted? There is no middle class who pay the taxes and insist upon knowing how they are expended. There is no free Press, with its penetrating and omniscient vigilance, to compel honesty and drag offenders to light and retribution. There is only one eye over all, and that eye can of course see only a small corner of this vast Empire. What the Emperor looks at, or can visit, is well done: everything else is neglected or abused. It is the common and inevitable story, wherever you have centralization and barbarism combined. >>Thirdly. The common soldiers, brave and hardy as they are, devoted to their Czar, and careless of privation, have no love of their profession, and no interest in the object of the war. If we except the household regiments, who are near the person of the Emperor, the Russian private has no zeal for glory, no taste for lighting, no pleasure in bold and exciting enterprises. He is a serf, seized by the conscription, and condemned to hopeless slavery for life. He is torn from his family and his land, drilled by the knout, neglected by his officers, fed on black bread, where fed at all, always without comforts, often without shoes. How can such troops be expected to make h,—we do not say against French enthusiasm, we do not say against British resolution, we do not say against fanatical and hardy mountaineers, like Schamyl and his warriors,— but even against courageous and well-fed Turks, lighting for their country and their faith, and officered by competent commanders? We need not wonder to read that at Olteuitza and Silistria the Russians had to be driven on to the assault with menaces and blows; that general officers had to sacrifice their lives in an unprecedented manner in order to encourage the soldiers to make head against the foe; and that the prisoners of war begged, as a mercy, to be permitted to enlist in the army that had captured them rather than return to misery by being exchanged. >>Lastly. There is another source of weakness in the Russian Empire. That vast State is in a great measure composed of the spoils which she has torn from surrounding nations. She is a patchwork of filched and unamalgamated materials. Her frontier provinces are filled with injured, discontented, hostile populations, whom, being unable to reconcile to her rule, she has endeavored to enfeeble and to crush; and many of whom wait, with more or less of patience and desire, the blessed day of emancipation and revenge. Sweden has never forgiven Russia the seizure of Finland; nor do we hear that the Finns are enamored a their new connection. On the contrary, our newspapers last week were busy with the squabbles between our Finnish and Russian prisoners of war. the Germans of Livonia are not yet thoroughly amalgamated ; and what Poland is and longs to be, we need not say. The ruined Boyards of Bessarabia curse the day which transferred them to the Russian scepter ; and the Danuban Principalities tremble at the prospect of a similar fate. How the Crimea was won and how treated, we described in a recent number (Sept. 2). The Tartars of that province (who still, in spite of every effort, constitute half the population), though languid and inactive, are quite unreconciled, have received our troops with a ready welcome, and would gladly shake off the yoke of their infidel conquerors, and resume their ancestral grandeur under Turkish suzerainty. The Don Cossacks hate Russia with a perfect hatred, for she has violated their privileges and customs, and yearly drains off their youth to be sacrificed in a war which they detest. Since the great Roman Empire, probably no State ever enfolded to many bitter enmities within its embrace, or was girt with such a circle of domestic foes. Three disastrous campaign; and all this suppressed and smoldering animosity would in all likelihood break forth, and leave external enemies nothing to do and little to desire. >>Now, these last three sources of Russian weakness are perennial. They belong to her as a despotism, as a centralized administration, as an Empire formed by conquest and unconsolidated and unsecured by conciliation. Until, therefore, her whole system be changed; till an honest middle class has been created; till her Government be liberalized and de-centralized; till a free Press be permitted and encouraged to unveil and denounce abuses; and till the rights and feelings of annexed territories be habitually respected, we do not think that Russia need henceforth be considered as formidable for aggression. She has seen unmasked; and it will be the fault of Europe if it dreads her, or submits to be bullied by her, any longer. tl:dr >was known by the world to be incapable of honesty >could only wield diplomatic power by lying about the capability of its military >was shit at logistics and lost wars because of it >was rife with corruption and officers pocketing military funds >had a military made of conscripts who were treated like shit and forced to fight >>32629 >w-we didn't need azovstal anyways!

>>32612 >can someone explain these endless sanctions to me? In short... 1) The political elite (oligarchs) of Russia store the vast majority of their wealth in foreign investments. 2) Russia trades industrial, farm, and raw goods and resources for most of their nice things not completely true but accurate enough. 3) Russia is globally known as a good creditor & debtor because they have historically paid back both their loans and the loans of their surrounding Eastern European neigh ors when said neighbors nig out and refuse to pay back loans. Therefore the sanctions aim to strip Russia's political elite of capital abroad so that they will act against the state's interests domestically. Similarly the West is still hoping that Russians have grown soft (they haven't) and the shortage of luxury goods will make Russian citizens rise up in color revolutions against Putin (the opposite has happened because Russians over 25 are not stupid, in conjunction with state media dominating the narrative in Russia). Secondarily the sanctions hope to force Russia to redirect their wealth assets that would be used to fund the military back into domestic uses because America and London forgot Russia has enough wealth assets in reserves to fund about six months worth of war without touching the state budget.

>>32643 >So how come the ruble is steadily increasing in value? While I would like to say this is because the sanctions backfired, the reality is that there were a combination of factors in which the Russian state unilaterally froze international transfer of rubles for other currencies abroad while offering to buy rubles that were in circulation internationally using the Euros that they had acquired through oil trade at lower-than-market trading levels. Lower-than-market was better than worthless money so many nations cashed out their rubles which drove the price of the ruble back up since fewer rubles were in circulation. Basically the value of the ruble has remained stable because it is "frozen" to keep it out of freefall, but it isn't in circulation like it had been previously and will likely see a massive loss once circulation of the currency abroad resumes. On the plus side this means that domestically the purchasing power of the ruble has increased (you can buy two loaves of bread for the price of one), but on the downside it means Russia is experiencing a shortage of luxury goods unless it comes from China so there are huge price disparities emerging for things bought abroad when they can even be acquired at all. Think how you have to spend about $30-$80 on shipping no matter how cheap the goods are you are importing from Japan and that describes virtually everything that isn't essential goods in Russia right now. If Russia claims Southern Ukraine, then the short-term drop in rue prices will be meaningless since Russia can just hold the world by the balls with food shortages until they comply with Russian demands in exchange for oil/wheat. If Russia fails to claim Southern Ukraine, then you'll see Russians unable to afford anything except gas and wheat for the next decade or two.
>>32645 Thanks anon, much appreciated. From what I've seen, looks like Russians want to take and hold everything up to and including Kherson. I have no idea what they plan for Odessa and Mykolaiv. Could be on the menu later in the war, depending on how Donbass operation plays out. It would be foolish just to settle for Donbass and Crimea.

>>32644 >slavs kill slavs >article is clearly talking about the Crimean War
>>32624 It's a hypersonic missile. What the article meant is it gives Russia the ability to strike strategic targets (such as a military base) without arming the ICBM with nukes which is considered standard practice. Basically they are saying "we can now afford to launch missiles around the world without having to nuclear arm them to make it worth the effort." It creates a sense of unease in their enemies because they won't know if the ICBM launched contains a nuke or a conventional explosive, meaning the onus is on the defending country to declare MAD in the event of a Russian ICBM launch since it is no longer confirmable whether nukes were used until it has already struck the target. America's response will likely consist of "all ICBMs will be treated as nukes" which will weaken their political positions abroad, not that the burgers have much else to lose at this point.
>>32645 There's however the problem presented by the US. Nominally AFAIK they do not export or import much to/from Russia, but they will be hard pressed to reinstate those licensing agreements for digital or military shit. Also Airline companies won't play ball with the Ruskies unless they pay back the airliners they stole. Basically for the most part the economy in Russia is completely fine, but a few sectors (digital, aerospace, banking and automotive) are going to get absolutely terrible. Even assuming that Europe come to their senses and stop their own sanctions, America will set their technology back to the 90s unless Russia further develops their own tech industry. My own propaganda dictates that this is very hard as a mix of low birth rates, high emigration from Russia and most of the tecchies leaving or ratting out their own people (apparently there's a bunch of laws that allow Russians in tech industries to avoid conscription and even get govt gibs if they work for Russia, which many are refusing because the West pays better) make it seem impossible. Although, again, this is just what I know. It's also likely that in the coming months the political split in Russia will be between rural areas and the elderly vs youngsters and European-lite cities like St. Petersburg.
Also, I know this is pretty much impossible on an anonymous message board where the biggest incentive is to try and sow anti-propaganda to dishearten your ideological opponent, but I believe that we should really strive to just discuss the objective events as they're currently unfolding with the idea that we do not currently know the ultimate victor, rather than pointless posturing over which of the oh so democratically elected governments involved in the slapfight is the more just one. For all intents and purposes, this whole ordeal could have been avoided if the Ukies had more political experience and the Russians weren't so terrified of a toothless expansion by NATO. At any rate, what do you guys think will be the foreign policy of European nations, going forward? Seems to me that the Americans are just going to flipflop between Neoconservatism during bellicose times and Isolationism during anti-Imperialist times, but Europe right now failed their second big spot check (I always assumed that Brexit would have destroyed it but ironically the pandemic hurt the Anglos more than anyone else and apparently even strengthened the trust in the EU). It feels like the EU will be relegated to the dustbin of history while NATO resurfaces as a decrepit yet influential body.
>>32645 You forgot some things, like >russia destroying petrodollar >russia stabilizing ruble by deciding to only sell gas in it to euro countries >euro countries that do not have any way to obtain equivalent resources in needed amounts, so they MUST hold ruble even if eu throws a fit >russia still having unrestricted trade with china >you know the place where west shifted all of their industry and cannot be sanctioned >russia having all the necessery things for survival and even thriving while euros get 185$+/barrel oil (if they can get it.) Basically we are far more fucked by sanctions then russia is
>>32651 Yes most of those are irrelevant to the ruble's price with the exception of #2 which Putin isn't even enforcing because the Euros are still useful for buying rubles abroad. The way it currently works is the companies are paying in Euros except now to the specific Russian bank, which Russia transfers to rubles internally (those rubles don't exist), then uses those Euros to buy more rubles to keep the price of the ruble up, but nobody is actually trading in rubles. >China China is able to prop up the automotive industry for Russia and financial industry prior to the new round of sanctions targeting Russian businesses in Asia, however China makes cheap commodities. I've stated most of your claims in the past and I don't disagree with them, but ultimately those were just explanations for why the sanctions aren't harming Russia domestically. Anon was asking about the ruble's purchasing power abroad.
>>32649 If anything those sanctions may have been the best thing since sliced bread for Russia's tech sector since even having a Russian name is now a stigma in the West. I'm curious to see if the Western approach will be to snipe Russian tech experts the way they did with Belarus when Lukashenko ousted whatsherface or to double down which would be disastrous for Russia short-term but give them a chance to build up that industry more. Allegedly the Russians are producing their own microprocessors because of some nasty fights over Georgia and Crimea with the tech sector in the past, so they might use that as leverage in the coming months.
>>32650 I might seem pro-Russian by virtue of seeing Ukrainians as dishonourable they were notorious for stealing technology from the West and stealing oil from the East like slavic watermelon salesmen long before this war, but for the most part I'm more interested in observing the facts as-is. Both sides are terrible, just for different reasons. The bias everywhere else is to make Russia into the devil so I am going to have some level of sympathy when looking at the Russian perspective. I'm just enjoying the war while speculating on how fucked I am here in burgerland far away from the conflict.
>>32628 >Apperantly Russians have declared Mariupol liberated city, Makes sense. Azovstal is the final place with organized resistance. There is still fighting here and there throughout the city. But it's all from small and isolated pockets that are mostly surrendering anyway. Better to just seal and cover the exits to the Azovstal bunkers and starve Azov to death. Reportedly there are also 400 foreign mercenaries in the Azovstal bunkers too. I'd be hilarious to have the mercs and Azov kill each other over dwindling food and water supplies.
Is a city really liberated when there's almost nothing left standing?
Some nighttime FLIR action. So it's regular army fight by day, and Spetsnaz culling by night.
>>32657 Is that from the Eastern front? IIRC the Ukrainians retreated to the woods and were running ambush tactics so this could be one of the few ways the Russians are countering that.
>>32658 I thing I read something along the lines of "Iziyum front". There are few pro Russian telegram threads where this kind of videos pup up.
>>32659 Yeah. Last I checked the Russians had pincered a town a little bit SouthWest of Izium, so the forces were holding out near there in the forests by running ambush tactics so the Russians wouldn't feel safe going any further. It's probably more effective to pick off the Ukrainians at night until there's a change on the battlefield than to shell the entire forest since it's largely infantry anyways.

>Eight cybersecurity authorities from the Five Eye nations have come together to release a joint cybersecurity advisory that more malicious cyber activity is on the way as Russia's invasion of Ukraine continues to affect geopolitical stability. >The advisory is a joint warning by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation, US National Security Agency, Australian Cyber Security Centre, Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, New Zealand's National Cyber Security Centre, UK National Cyber Security Centre, and the UK National Crime Agency. >They said that some cybercrime and cyber threat groups have recently publicly pledged support for the Russian government in light of its invasion into Ukraine. These Russian-aligned cybercrime groups have threatened to conduct cyber operations in retaliation for perceived cyber offensives against the Russian government and the Russian people, the advisory states. >Some groups have also threatened to conduct cyber operations against countries and organisations providing materiel support to Ukraine, while other groups have conducted disruptive attacks against Ukrainian websites as well. >Among the identified cybercrime groups that have aligned with the Russian government are The CoomingProject, Killnet, Mummy Spider, Salty Spider, Scully Spider, Smokey Spider, Wizard Spider, and the Xaknet Team. >Meanwhile, Primitive Bear and Venomous Bear have been flagged as Russian-aligned cyber threat groups that have not been attributed to the Russian government. >Since the Ukraine invasion, the Five Eye cybersecurity authorities have also detected malicious cyber operations against IT networks from various Russian government entities. These include the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), including FSB's Center 16 and Center 18, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate, GRU's Main Center of Special Technologies, Russian Ministry of Defense, and the Central Scientific Institute of Chemistry and Mechanics. >In light of this malicious activity, the Five Eyes cybersecurity authorities have urged critical infrastructure network defenders to prepare for potential cyber threats -- including destructive malware, ransomware, DDoS attacks, and cyber espionage -- by hardening their cyber defences and performing due diligence in identifying indicators of malicious activity. >To protect against this growing cyber threat landscape, the Five Eyes authorities have called for organisations to immediately take four precautions. >The first is to update software, including operating systems, applications, and firmware, on IT network assets. According to the Five Eyes authorities this would entail prioritising patching known exploited vulnerabilities and critical and high vulnerabilities that allow for remote code execution or denial-of-service on internet-facing equipment. They also recommended for IT networks to consider using a centralised patch management system and for OT networks to use a risk-based assessment strategy to determine the OT network assets and zones that should participate in patch management programs. >The second precaution is to enforce multi-factor authentication to the greatest extent possible and require accounts with password logins, including service accounts, to have strong passwords. The remaining two calls for organisations to provide end-user awareness training and for users of remote desktop protocols to secure and monitor these more risky protocols closely. >RDP exploitation is one of the top initial infection vectors for ransomware, and risky services, including RDP, can allow unauthorized access to your session using an on-path attacker," the advisory states. >Prior to this warning, US President Joe Biden had already urged local organisations last month to bolster their cyber defence efforts as Russia has been considering conducting cyber attacks in retaliation to sanctions imposed against the country for its invasion into Ukraine. >"Russia could conduct malicious cyber activity against the United States, including as a response to the unprecedented economic costs we've imposed on Russia alongside our allies and partners. It's part of Russia's playbook," Biden said at the time. >"My administration is reiterating those warnings based on evolving intelligence that the Russian government is exploring options for potential cyber attacks." https://www.zdnet.com/article/five-eyes-advisory-warns-more-malicious-russian-cyber-activity-incoming/

>>32648 It seems to imply that the ICBM will be moving fast enough for the "warhead" to function as a kinetic kill device that will have enough force to destroy a target from speed alone. How fast do hypersonic missiles travel? According to what I've read hyper sonic starts at Mach 5 which translates to 3806 mph. Where as something like Meteor Crater was created by an object moving at 29,000 mph. Even something moving at Mach 20 only gets you to 15224 mph. You have to get around something like Mach 40 to get the same level of speed and Meteor Crater was excavated by an object considerably larger than something like a tungsten "warhead" that I'm guessing could at max be no more than a few meters long. Specifically it was a house sized asteroid made of solid iron and nickle. I have doubts.
>>32664 >So instead of just demilitarizing Ukraine, Russians are gonna have to depopulate it. Well of course. US/NATO doesn't give a fuck about Ukraine. The US would execute every single Ukrainian themselves if that some how would translate into Russia being under western control.
>>32682 I'm not seeing your implication that the payload is what they are talking about in the article, friend.
>>32682 For one thing, ICBMs do move at ~15000 mph. It's a near-orbital trajectory, so it's moving at near-orbital speeds. But more importantly, Meteor Crater is a pretty extreme thing to compare to. Even nukes would look weak against that sort of impact. You don't need to dig a kilometer-wide hole to have a major effect.
>>32681 I think Xaknet Team does exist. but I not sure about the rest of the names as I can't find anyone else as the rest could fakes . According to russian sources Xaknet was responsible for Deanonymization of Ukrainian servicemen and Gaining access to 220 thousand WI-FI routers in Ukraine.

>>32686 I guess if they are talking nukes in the <10kt range I could see it. Even the MOAB is only 11 ton equivalency and most briefcase nukes start in the 5-10kt+ range so it's hard to take the implication of nuclear-tier damage seriously.
>>32688 The only thing the pro-Russian side has said in past threads was that the Russian advances were pretty incredible, that leaving Kiev was likely due to the Ukrainians flooding the entire highway along the northern route so Russians are waiting for the ground to dry until Summer and making tactical victories in the East in the mean time. Everyone expected Mariupol to fall quickly but then Turkey blocked the entire strait so Russians have been operating without having full naval artillery (also the reason they haven't taken Odessa). Russia is still making massive gains in record times, and isn't set to lose any time soon. Besides they'll go nuclear if they really think they are losing.
To add; the goals in Kiev were clearly distractionary to keep Western forces from deploying in Donbass and at most they were hoping to accidentally kill Zelensky in order to throw the Ukrainians into disarray. There was no chance of Russia taking Kiev in early spring since the environment was too muddy. Not unless they blitzkrieg'd through in the first week. Ukrainians held off the blitzkrieg (surprising many who thought they Ukrainians were even weaker than they are, but not ultimately amazing) so now it's back to a conventional war. The maps don't lie and Russia is still making progress daily if you follow the current encirclements. The front lines are 10km deep which is unheard of for Western forces.
>>32692 >Ukrainians held off the blitzkrieg (surprising many who thought they Ukrainians were even weaker than they are, but not ultimately amazing) I would also add that maybe it was costly for russian forces but they would be retards if they did not try blitz.

I almost feel sorry for Azov, whoever wins they'll lose, if Russia wins at best they will be sent to the gulag and if Ukraine wins at best they will be sent to prison, the western aligned Ukraine that would come out of a victory against Russia will have no use for young far-right men with a lot of military experience. At the end of the day they got themselves into this mess though. >>32691 The facts remains though that for Russia the sooner this is over the better, the fact that the Ukrainians are holding out and managed to pressure the Russians enough to retreat in some sectors is more or less a victory for them as the defending side. On the other hand it is true that like in that image Ukrainian shills rely very heavily in assumptions and strawmen to paint the picture that Russia is doing way worse than it's really doing.

Poposna is critical to Operation Donbas Arc as the encirclement's southern anchor, due to its location as Ukrainian flank protection and logistics center. There's speculation that Ukraine is regrouping its northern most defenses in that region for a counterattack on Popasna, according to Military Summary. In response Russia is likely redeploying forces from Mariupol to support the Popasna attack, now that Mariupol is fallen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5al_XjTysBo

>>32709 You think Russians are gonna opt for smaller encirclement trough Popasna and link up with Torskie?, Though you will have to build a pontoon bridge to capitalize upon that. Some reports say that Mariupol has freed up up to 40.000 Russian troops that are moving north , and there were some positional battles that allowed Russians to form up smaller salient around Velika Novosilka which will probably increase in the coming days. Iziyum salient has formed proper, so maybe even a larger, operational encirclement , can be achieved if Russians grind down enough Ukrainian troops before the offensive and UAF are unable to stop them linking up behind Kramatorsk. There was sharp increase in artillery usage in the last two days by the RuAF, all the reports say that this is preparation work for the offensive, the main body of Russian troops are still not moving into the attack positions.

US sending experimental suicide drones to Ukraine: Mystery drone: How the Air Force fast-tracked a new weapon for Ukraine The “Phoenix Ghost” drones were developed by California-based Aevex Aerospace. >The Biden administration sent the Washington defense establishment scrambling on Thursday when it released the details of its $800 million security package for Ukraine. >Not long after President Joe Biden announced that the U.S. was rushing weapons to arm Ukrainian forces as they push back against their Russian invaders, the Pentagon emailed out a list of the items, which included howitzers, tactical field equipment and spare parts. >Then came something no one had seen before: 121 “Phoenix Ghost” drones. >The mystery aircraft was developed by California-based Aevex Aerospace, a company that was founded in 2017 and employs 500 people with offices in California, North Carolina and Virginia. >The Air Force drone program, which was already under development before Russia’s invasion, matched Ukraine’s specific requirements and has “similar capabilities” to the AeroVironment Switchblade drone already in Ukraine, Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby said on Thursday. The Switchblade, which the U.S. began sending to Ukraine this month, is a 5.5 lbs. drone that can loiter over an area for 30 to 40 minutes before an operator slams it into its target, detonating a small warhead. >Aevex Aerospace could not be reached for comment. The company, which lists a variety of drones for different purposes, does not feature Phoenix Ghost on its website. Aevex owns a training range in Roswell, N.M., which is likely where the company tested the Phoenix Ghost. >The Phoenix Ghost “is a different type of aircraft, it’s a one-way aircraft that is effective against medium armored ground targets,” said retired Lt. Gen. David Deptula, dean of the Mitchell Institute for Aerospace Studies and member of the Aevex board. >The drone can take off vertically, fly for six-plus hours searching for or tracking a target, and operate at night using its infrared sensors, Deptula said. Phoenix Ghost has a longer loitering capability than the Switchblade, which can fly for less than an hour, he said. >Aevex is a combination of three companies that were already established in the defense sector: Merlin Global Services, CSG Solutions and Special Operations Solutions. >The fast-track development is part of a larger push by the Pentagon to team up with small firms to develop and buy new technologies outside of the cumbersome acquisition hierarchy that often slows down or quashes leap-ahead technologies. >“It was developed for a set of requirements that very closely match what Ukrainians need right now in the Donbas,” Kirby said. https://archive.ph/k3u3O

That would make Moscow pay more transit fees that could help Ukraine's wartime defense and deter Russia from damaging Ukraine's gas pipelines in the meantime, they told lawmakers and Biden administration officials in Washington last week. >Representatives from Ukraine's gas pipeline operator and gas firm Naftogaz spent a week in Washington meeting administration officials and congressional lawmakers to urge them to convince Germany and other European allies to adopt the plan. >Russia "depends on us transporting gas from Russia to Europe. This is something to leverage in our discussions with them and Europe can help," said Olga Bielkova, director of international affairs for the Gas Transit System Operator of Ukraine, in an interview in Washington. >A White House official and Germany's economy ministry declined to comment. On Wednesday, Germany said it will stop importing oil by the end of this year "and then gas will follow," but did not specify when. >Germany has already halted Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas project, which was designed to double gas shipments into Germany, as punishment for Russia's February invasion of Ukraine. The $11 billion project finished construction late last year but never started. >Diverting shipments from the existing Nord Stream 1 pipeline might be a tough sell for Germany and the rest of Europe, analysts said. >Doing so "does nothing to increase security of supply to Europe," said David (((Goldwyn))), a former State Department special envoy. >The move could also raise some legal dangers. Christian Egenhofer of the Brussels-based Centre for European Policy Studies said EU action against Russian imports could represent an illegal breach of supply contracts. >Russia currently moves 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year to Germany on Nord Stream 1. It moves another 40 bcm to Europe through Ukraine's gas transport system and pays transit fees to Ukraine in U.S. dollars. >Ukraine's pipeline system has spare capacity of more than 100 bcm and could easily absorb the Nord Stream 1 flow. >Daniel Vajdich, an adviser to Naftogaz, said shifting all of Nord Stream 1 to the Ukraine system "would provide Kyiv with more leverage over Moscow and show the Kremlin that Europe is tying its own security to that of Ukraine." >The officials proposed that 40% of Nord Stream 1's capacity be redirected to the Ukrainian pipeline immediately, gradually increasing to 100% by April 2023. That would give EU states time to build up winter stockpiles and diversify. >The officials said they also sought U.S. support for Ukraine to gain access to supply from LNG terminals in Turkey. >Svitlana Zalischuk, adviser to the CEO of Naftogaz, said Ukraine soon needs to secure its own supply of gas before its winter heating season begins in October. This is a perfectly reasonable plan.

>>32735 >Going for Transnistria Well shit. They're gonna leave Kiev alone and just take Ukraine's entire access to the Black Sea. Just fuck up the world food supply lines, fam. If they do this it won't matter how militarized Ukraine becomes since Ukraine will be impotent sharing a border with Poland. >>32743 I'm surprised it took this long.

Overall, it feels like this war is going to be a long one. I pray for the West to follow through with its threat to commit economic sudoku after France's elections by imposing a full embargo on Russian energy.
>>32745 >>32737 I'm not convinced it's going to be a longer war. I still think at the current rate of expansion, Russia will have met most of their military objectives by late July or August unless they decide to take the whole country out. That cauldron forming to the East could see mass collapse of forces once Poposna or whatever is taken which would let the Russians fuck Kharkiv in the ass where most Ukrainian soldiers have been taking shelter from the shelling, and taking Kharkiv would be a major hit to Ukrainian morale. If they invade Odessa by late May, I can't see the war continuing much longer than July/August without a third party like Romania getting involved in the war. Which they might over the Transnistria question. The Kievan government relies on the Black Sea to fund Ukraine, so even if they militarily want to attack, a Ukraine without the Black Sea and with the threat of Belarus on one side with Russia on two of its others would be completely toothless even if they refused to ever "surrender" officially.
Gozalo Lira has been confirmed alive. What a madlad, calling out Ukrainian shit while living in Ukraine. Not sure if Darwinism or balls of steel.
If Russia invades the Black Sea from Ukraine, wouldn't that "officially" end Turkey's embargo under the treaty since the treaty deals with warring states attached to the black sea region? Obviously Turkey is going to claim that Ukraine still owns the territory and they renounce Russia's claim to it, but then it's Turkey playing with fire as an aggressor instead of Turkey and its allies.

>>32762 After Ukraine tried to pass off the video of that Ukrainian TikTok squad, which got blasted point-blank by a Russian tank as a Russian squad, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn most of Ukraine’s evidence for attacks against Russians are from old wars, or current Ukrainian casualties claimed to be Russian.

>>32771 >Russia gets alphabet banned Photoshop sadly, but would be hilarious.
>>32746 >If they invade Odessa by late May, I can't see the war continuing much longer than July/August I can't help but think it'll be a repeat of Mariupol style siege except Russia doesn't have absolute control of the water like with the Kerch straight. Then again while Odessa has a very strong local identity I don't think there will be the same type of no-surrender fanaticism as with Azov, plus Odessans will have that example to look at.
>>32773 Are there any signs of Romania going for a quick land grab yet?
>>32773 Odessa does have a strong local identity but it's mostly sympathetic to Russia. It's also one of the places there were strong pro-Russian protests during Maidowns (around 40 protesters were notoriously burned alive).

>Sprawling sanctions meant to cripple Russia’s financial system sometimes trip people and businesses out of their reach, even in Ukraine, the country they were meant to help. >Financial firms often take an overzealous approach to interpreting penalties due to the harsh penalties for violations. The potential extension of sanctions to new targets may also make companies cautious about who they do business with. >“From a business perspective, if the deal size is small, why take the risk? said Robert Clifton Burns, senior counsel at the law firm Crowell & Moring LLP. >AmEx’s decision stems in part from concerns that the payments could end up in the hands of sanctioned people and companies in Russia-backed breakaway regions in Ukraine, a person familiar with the matter said. >In February, President Biden ordered sweeping sanctions blocking transactions with breakaway regions, known as the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics. But the regions don’t have clearly defined borders, making it difficult for companies to ensure they don’t run afoul of sanctions, Mr Burns said. https://trashchan.xyz/finance/thread/4.html https://goodwordnews.com/russian-sanctions-led-american-express-to-cut-ukraines-financial-lifeline/ How many western companies are pulling out of Ukraine due to sanctions on russia?
>>32774 >Are there any signs of Romania going for a quick land grab yet? You mean Moldova/Transnistria/Odessa massacre 2.0? I doubt Romania has the military capability for that. That's only further casus belli for Russia and plays right into their NATO aggression narrative. Plus NATO is likely keeping Romania on a tight leash to avoid escalation as there are still plenty of hohols to fight their proxy war for now. >>32775 Yeah Odessa has odds to come out fairly unscathed if they cooperate with Russia, Kherson being the precedent. Bonus points if they avoid a siege particularly to spite Zelensky who gave shit to Kherson for not getting leveled. >>32776 >Ukraine, the country they were meant to help Heh, not how economic sanctions work.

>>32778 Wikipedia (because I'm lazy and so are you) has a decent summary: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Odessa_clashes#Casualties >The official list of people killed during the event is still kept secret by the Ukrainian authorities. >Unofficially, the names of all victims have been established by journalists and published by local media: Dumskaya and Timer. >According to UN OHCHR report,[54] 42 people died in a fire that erupted in the House of Trade Unions: 32 from carbon monoxide poisoning, and 10 after leaping from windows to escape the flames. These were 34 men, seven women and a 17-year-old boy, all of them - either anti-Maidan supporters or people who happened to be at the site of the incident. Basically they barricaded an administration building with people inside and molotov'd it.
>>32748 where is this info reported?
>>32777 Compass Mining Inc a US based company is selling $30 million of hardware because the servers are located in the middle Siberia. Another consequence of economic sanctions https://archive.ph/zPuJd
>>32783 He had an interview today with some guy, and opened new account on twitter where he confirmed he has been held by SBU, he lost his email and phone and such. >>32785 So whats stopping Russia from just walking in and taking it, are they afraid they'll get sanctioned?
>>32786 yeah I don't understand the CEO thinks he will recover value for the equipment and redistribute the losses to 2,000 clients by selling. I feel like CEOs and businessmen live in a different world. I feel like their eyes should have been open when the Russians just seized the planes in Russia anyway. I guess some people never learn.
>>32787 West gypsy'd Russian foreign reserve and buttfucked Russian oligarch Though I don't think anybody in Russia will shed a tear for that, as far as I've seen so its only fair Russia does the same for western assets in Russia. They should just take the whole fertile basin of Ukraine in the south and hold the Europe by the balls. It would be pretty funny to see faggots in Brussels knocked down a peg or two.
