Russia Vs Ukraine 14 - Victory Day Edition Strelok 05/07/2022 (Sat) 23:19:16 ID: 59a090 No.33939

>>33944 If you want to get technical, then this war will continuing going on for years and years, if it's truly the beginning of the end for the Petrodollar Empire.
>>33945 Wouldn't the Russian fleet stationed on Turkey's strait on the other side cause some problems with that?
>>33944 The winner will be determined by the end of June. Everything after that will be cleanup over the next months/years and preparing for the inevitables that come with the implication of either side's success.

>>33948 >roaches and russians start killing each other
For those who don't know what I mean... >If Russians take Lysychansk it's all ogre for Ukraine as the Russians surround and wipe out the Donetsk front line eliminating a large chunk of Ukraine's elite forces and freeing up their military >Ukraine won't be able to retreat at the current rate of advancement >End result will likely be Ukraine losing Odessa and Kharkiv >If Ukraine takes Vovchansk it's all over for the Russian offensive and they will be forced into a high-casualty war >End result being up in the air but Russian casualties will be high enough that Finland won't blink at joining NATO >High casualties even if they win against Ukraine will prevent Russia from ever advancing again without starting WWIII The only thing Russia will be able to do to change the tide of battle if they lose Vovchansk is to launch nukes. The only thing Ukraine will be able to do if they lose Sloviansk (the inevitable result if they lose Lysychansk) will be to beg NATO to intervene with military forces. This war is coming to a close even though it doesn't look like much is happening. Of course it will linger on through the summer, maybe through the next few years, but these battles right now are going to determine the rest of the war.
>>33950 I don't care who attacks them so long as the roaches die.
So, from what I've understood from keeping tabs on all of this, the bum rush to Kiev was a massive diversion? Something like a "be cool if we catch it off guard but mostly to tie up enemy troops"?
>>33953 no, vatnik shills are trying to spin it that way because it was a colossal failure of a blyatzkrieg and failed miserably because of shit logistics and failing to account for literally every western country dumping their entire GDP's worth of top-tier funz into the hands of the hohols. nobody dumps that many troops into one front for the sole purpose of a diversion.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hS0KcfiGDMg Sounds like the Russians are planning to burn Ukrainians alive by flammenwarfening the forests into nonexistence. >>33953 It was a legitimate attempt that any acting army would take, but when the Ukrainian forces didn't collapse as expected, it served its secondary objective of draining Ukrainian reserves from the mountainous regions. So while not entirely correct, "yes" is close enough.
>>33954 >That many troops By the standards of the Russian military it was a "handful" at most.
I got charged an extra $1 to support Jewkraine automatically on my grocery receipt. How is this even legal? they did the same bullshit during the 2010 Haitian earthquake shit.
>>33957 You could go to customer service and fight it.
>>33957 the funny thing is that money will count towards the store tax cut. try to fight it
>>33957 you probably missed a checkbox or something that said "yes please giv money to the poor suffering hohols"
>>33951 >but these battles right now are going to determine the rest of the war. Hmmm... what if both things happen around the same time?
>>33961 It would still be a Russian victory since securing the Luhansk front would allow the Russians to temporarily redirect their forces to secure the rail lines before dealing with the Donetsk front in a timely manner. The fall of Popasna is what set these events into motion.
>>33951 >will prevent Russia from ever advancing again without starting WWIII The concern is that they might find that an equitable arrangement. Or that NATO would sense Russia is weakened and push harder against them and in response Russia just goes "fuck it."
>>33964 There's nothing wrong with that, but the moment it happens the real fun starts since everything is on the table.
>>33951 finland already isn't going to blink about joining NATO. russia doesn't have enough spare to threaten them with alone, nevermind +sweden, +norway, +UK, probably +US (likely in any case, but something was allegedly negotiated during the F-35 trials)
>>33968 Allegedly Croatia is going to veto attempts to have them join NATO unless NATO deals with the Bosnia question first.
>>33969 i know the croatian president was making noise about that, but my understanding is croatia's executive powers rest with the prime minister and the presidency is mostly ceremonial, and the prime minister has said that being against NATO expansion is a pro-russian stance and a political catastrophe for croatia.
Video from the failed assault on Snake Island.
>>33951 As of now, Vovchansk falling is a realm of fantasy. I doubt that the war will end with russiabs assfucking ukr trenches though. Ukr govt is too stubborn and does not care for the amount of ukrainians that was lost. It will have to come down to a large battle around kiev, again. >>33953 Pretty much.
>>33968 >russia doesn't have enough spare to threaten them with alone I don't think people understand how BAD that is. When you've got a country that's rather belicose and has both conventional and nuclear capabilities and now you've embarked on a long term plan to denude that country's conventional capabilities, you're basically leaving them with nothing but their nuclear capabilities. You haven't weakened their nuclear capabilities not that there's really any way to do so outside of speculative fiction anyway. All you have is the hopes that MAD will restrain them. I think the West is in a mindset that they have played chicken with Russia time and time again over the past century and they've made them blink. It seems that it's simply not entered into their collective minds - What if they don't blink this time? Fuck. Even if the Western powers win and cow Russia all that will do is throw Russia right into China's arms and create an alternate military-economic bloc. One that will likely pull India into their sphere as well and one that will fuck over the primacy of the petrodollar as the one global exchange currency. That's the best case scenario. Worst case is you have the introduction of tactical scale weapons to the battlefield and shit just escalates from there because the West has no real plan how to manage such an event without escalating to massive retaliation because their entire plan hinges on strategic blackpilling. If someone takes the nuclear whitepill then the West is going to have to "Apollo 13" a solution to prevent the alternative of putting the entire northern hemisphere on a time out for up to a century.
>>33939 >>33951 >The only thing Russia will be able to do to change the tide of battle if they lose Vovchansk is to launch nukes. That a bit extreme. If you mean due to rail access via Vovchansk, Russia also has access via Dvorichna. Or somethign else? It would be hard for Ukraine to maintain a push east of the Donets river. >>33954 >literally every western country dumping their entire GDP's worth of top-tier funz into the hands of the hohols Yeah this was the real wild card no one anticipated, sanctions too but that will take more time to have effect, it's basically a NATO proxy war against Russia at this point. Otherwise government would have fled Kiev as is tradition with collapse/surrender following pretty quickly. >>33964 >push harder against them and in response Russia just goes "fuck it." There's no real benefit for NATO to escalate right now, they can just comfortably keep feeding arms to hohols and wage economic war via sanctions. >>33971 >failed assault on Snake Island Did Ukrops attempt a landing? Video looks like just a successful drone strike.
>>33972 >As of now, Vovchansk falling is a realm of fantasy. Admittedly there's a large river between Ukraine and Vovchansk, but it seems realistic if Ukraine focuses their forces and Russia doesn't provide reinforcements. What gives you that impression?
>>33974 >Did Ukrops attempt a landing? They sent several aircraft, a handful of drones, and an amphibious ship for landing. Allegedly (according to Russian MOD) at least one of the two fighters, the bomber, and two of the drones were shot down as well as the amphibious assault ship. It's a fairly major attack since Odessa has a limited number of aircraft and was probably at the behest of Turkey who's Bayrakter drones aren't flying so well in Ukraine according to investors.
>>33975 Because ukrop Kharkov gains are due to russians retreating after losing Stary Saltiv. Russians can pick their own fights at this point. Now ukrops will have to run through open fields while dodging all the artillery that was besieging Kharkov . Basically, the situation is the same as before except ukrainians do not have the cover of the city anymore and hold a few more villages. Call me when they push sucessfully into Rubizhne, then they actually could threaten russian supply lines with arty. The objective of russians in Kharkov seems to be tieing up ukrop forces for long enough to assrape ukrops in donetskan trenches without soap. Which is still achieved in current position if ukrops continue the counterattack.
>>33974 >Yeah this was the real wild card no one anticipated, sanctions too but that will take more time to have effect, it's basically a NATO proxy war against Russia at this point. And NATO strategy seems to be focused on hiding in cities and using civilians as meat shields. And no one thought the west will implode the economy of their own countries just to virtue signal about russians being bad. Good fucking luck finding replacement for ruskie oil. These sanctions hurt west more then they hurt russia so far.
DPA released an update on snek island. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXnhhqG_bp0
>>33856 So it turns out that was a fucking lie.
>>33973 The west's big idea seems sensible: Take away Ruskie conventional weapons, preventing them from using nukes through MAD, forcing them to the negotiation table with the west. Then devolve the federation, enforce nuclear disarmament, ending the Russian threat once and for all and providing us with a buffer towards Shina. >Why shouldn't Russia join China instead? The chinks are sociopaths towards their lessers. Ruskies would become ressource extraction slaves in Siberia in hovels with chinks taskmasters in chink-only towns, just as they're doing with their African clients. Neither choice gives them an independent culture, but at least they'll get nice stuff and keep their wives with the western option. Ruskies have lost the great game already. They just haven't realized it yet. They will soon. >But muh nukes Nukes are a spook. No rational person is gonna use them, and even if a madman is at the helm, not everyone sitting in the nuclear launch bunkers is going to be similarly insane. Worst case scenario, there's a rebellion in the nuke bunker, netting the rebels a nobel peace price, more mitary honours than they can carry, and a cool couple million bucks from speaking engagements and book sales.
>>33981 >keep their wives with the western option >keep their wives what do you mean, chinamen will rape and pillage their women?
>>33981 >The west's big idea seems sensible: Take away Ruskie conventional weapons, stopped reading there people seem to have forgotten what the word "hubris" even means

Allegedly, Russkies have already gotten their hands on Brimstone missile.
>>33985 It starts to feel like a rather lopsided version of the Spanish civil war: the Russkies get to learn about all the new toys of the West, meanwhile the only solid conclusion we can draw so far is that the turret of a T-90 flies just as well as the turret of a T-70.
It has been confirmed that popasna fell by Ukrainain sources. Serhiy Gadidai said the Ukrainain forces are retreating to more fortified locations. The town has been completely distroyed and there isn't anywhere to hide anymore.
With every day my hate for Selensky as a German grows. I don't care about the war, I just hope this faggot and every bastard who kisses his ass gets punished. Russia and the Ukraine need to sign a ceasefire and start a manhunt for Selensky.
>>33988 Just wait untill he gets nobel peace prize.
>>33978 >Good fucking luck finding replacement for ruskie oil. Allegedly Turkey is going to have a pipeline that bypasses Russia into the heart of Europe operational in the next six months and Israel is a contributing force behind it. Yes, Europe is letting themselves become solely reliant on Israeli-backed Turkish oil. I wish I was joking.
>>33981 >Take away Ruskie conventional weapons There is a thing called hubris and thinking you can take the pride away from a nation that has built their image on military advancements is a recipe for disaster. Russia would sooner depopulate entire cities before agreeing to this bullshit.
>>33991 >>33988 Italy and Spain are planning to use African oil as their supply line, Eni has made some talks with Algeria state company Sonatrach to use the Trans-Mediterranean pipeline.
>>33992 Sure, but nuclear war isn't depopulating entire cities, it's depopulating Russia in its entirety. If your choice is pride or survival and economic success, you'd be surprised with what can be done.
aw enforcement officials in Germany have warned residents who attend the Victory Day military parade celebrations in Berlin, commemorating the end of World War II, not to bring Ukrainian or Russian flags, Berlin authorities said. In a statement Friday, Berlin authorities said they did not wish the discord of their European neighbors to impact the politics of their country on the 77th anniversary of the end of the war. Interior Senator Iris Spranger echoed the sentiment, adding: "It is important to prevent provocations and escalations," RND reported. The act of remembering as well as the respect for memorials and monuments must be preserved against the background of Russia’s current war of aggression in Ukraine," Berlin police said. "The war must not be allowed to spill over into conflicts or disputes in Berlin beyond the democratic discourse." Ukrainian and Russian flags will also be barred at local monuments depicting Russia’s defeat of Nazi Germans. "We will protect dignified commemoration at 15 memorials and monuments through comprehensive regulations designed to prevent any confrontation at these sites," said police chief Barbara Slowik, who also announced the banning of military music. "At the same time, we are taking action against any form of support, approval, or even glorification of Russia’s war of aggression on Ukraine, especially in gatherings." Ukrainian Ambassador Andriy Melnyk expressed frustration over the ban, calling it "a slap in the face." "We are shocked that the Berlin police banned the carrying of Ukrainian-related flags on May 8 and 9," Melnyk told RND. "This is a slap in the face to Ukraine and a slap in the face to the Ukrainian people," the ambassador continued. Melnyk added: "That the public carrying of the Ukrainian flag in the federal capital is prohibited, just like the Russian one, under which the worst war crimes are committed day and night against the Ukrainian civilian population and tens of thousands of Ukrainians, women, and children, are murdered in cold blood, is a huge scandal. This not only shows a lack of tact, but it is also a catastrophic political decision." https://news.yahoo.com/germany-announces-ban-ukrainian-flags-093156522.html

>>33994 Good thing this war is letting them have their cake and eat it, then. I'd rather cheap food/gas than endless consumer goods built on slave labor.
>>33998 Anon, half the country is slavic mutts since 1945.

You can run a poverty stricken shithole with nukes as a hermit kingdom for decades without collapsing, while threatening your neighbours with bellicose rhetoric that amounts to nothing.

>>33979 I've reviewed everything regarding snek island in greater details and these are my conclusions: >Russians kept getting bombed on snek island >Russians flee from snek island because it isn't worth holding right now >Whether actually fleeing or a feint doesn't matter >Ukrainians see an opportunity to take it for V-day as a propaganda push since it was one of the first Ukrainian territories lost Recap: Ukraine told Russia to go fuck themselves when they said they were invading, Russia shelled the island briefly, Ukraine surrendered upon realizing they were serious and it wasn't a joke. >Ukraine sends in aircraft after the retreating Russian frigate >Gets a hit on the Frigate >Also blows up the church on the island >Tells their commanders they sank the frigate and took out AA >They didn't take out AA >Goes to land on the island >Russia sees a prime opportunity and drops a payload on the amphibious ship disembarking onto snek island/engages Ukrainian forces >Boat is shitter shattered but some soldiers survived(?) >Ukraine bit off more than they could chew and lost valuable aircraft/pilots engaging Russian forces at the island >Their shit got fucked up by AA >Russian frigate is fine >Both sides are dick-waving about their successes on snek island >Nobody is actually inhabiting it right now since it's an open target even if it has strategic value Did I forget anything?

>>33978 >And no one thought the west will implode the economy of their own countries just to virtue signal about russians being bad. Considering that war strategy with Russia amounts to a suicide pact in MAD, why wouldn't a degenerating liberal West bring down its most despised geopolitical enemy down along with it? Russia's rhetoric waxes on about the Satanic forces of liberal Western civilization yet it doesn't seem to think that this cowardly opponent wouldn't achieve what amounts to a school shooting if push comes to shove. It's an inaccurate analysis of theirs to think that because the West is materialistic, it will eventually beg for its life to be spared, when the truth is that the West is materialistic even at the expense of its own life. With this war not having ended swiftly, the West will now exploit the opprtunity to ensure that Russia feels the full fury of its death cult. The nuke narrative is projection, because the West ultimately doesn't care for destroying the world as its present end is to destroy nationhood, and a world in ashes is a world without Russia, a world without borders, and a world without peoples, with everything that anyone ever cared for gone, and the only rule in life predominant over all: death. The modern West in effect worships a trans-racial lesbian couple of Bellona and Eris.

>>34005 It's more like the West threw a temper tantrum because the billions they funneled into child prostitution and trans-niggerism in Ukraine as a social experiment to see if they could export it to other hostile or lukewarm countries went up in smokes and they are going to have to foot the bill for both the rapefugees they wanted to export elsewhere and not import, along with repairing their pet project when Russia inevitably gives them the bird. I get the idea that this is somehow the collective conscious of intellectuals using their materialistic ideology in a gay nigger death cult, but the reality is that Western liberal types are just tribalistic and stuck in the "now" being unable to actually calculate the costs of their temper tantrums when things don't go their way like they have for the last 60-80ish years. Virtue signaling against Russia was necessary to not be kicked out of the tribe and (almost) nobody considered the consequences of doing it because they were butthurt.
>>34005 >forgets Yahweh
>>34007 Jews just exploit systems to put themselves into positions of power. They don't create them. They've got too much grey matter (the thing responsible for lying) intelligence and noy enough long-term planning to realize they're fucking themselves.
>>34003 So, who's MI-8 got deleted on the TB2 footage? Both sides claim it was the other, but Russian claim it was Ukrainian chopper dropping of Ukrainian special forces makes just a little bit more sense, due to the disembarking procedure. Also, do we have a confirmation that the Frigate was hit? There are pictures of it sitting pretty in Sevastopol, but that could have been a picture from earlyer.
>>34009 >Who's MI-8 got deleted? Seems to be the Ukrainian's based on conventional logic but so long as both sides are claiming it was the other guy's I don't think there will be a clear answer. Maybe we'll get one on Friday since that's where news goes to die (nobody watches the news on Friday).
>>34005 I agree with your analysis, but I still don't understand why Russia propagandizes about the whole "Satanic forces of liberal Western civilization" part, when it was (and still is, to some extent) the Satanic force of Bolshevism and Judaeo-communism. Even if they are now just a republic, they still harbor the mindfuckery from seventy years' of communist brainwashing. Perhaps the true redpill, in the end, is that there is no good side to all this, only two equally terrible empires who deserve nuclear hellfire to cleanse them.
>>34011 When Constantinople fell to the Muslims, Russia became the "heart of Orthodoxy" and largely flourished while the rest of Christianity entered a dark age. The communists had to dismantle about 80% of their own infrastructure (thousands of hospitals, hundreds of schools, etc.) because it was tied to the church during their hostile takeover. Putin largely "rebuilt" or turned back over infrastructure to the Orthodox church when he took over Russia, so there is a very Christian-centric idea of manifest destiny among post-soviet Russia while the West has moved towards science as a religion. Russians are extremely superstitious (spitting or throwing salt over your shoulder to ward off the devil tier superstitious), extremely conservative outside of Moscow and Saint Petersburg, and hold spiritual matters as being just as important as material matters, so of course they are going to think the west is satanic in comparison to them. They thought the Greeks were barbarians for having capital punishment and dismemberment as punishments for crimes back in the day too.
>>34010 Rybar just posted it was actually Russian helicopter. So I guess mystery solved
Reports coming in suggest that Russia lost their bridgehead towards the landfill.

I get that it is probably old soviet surplus they would have to throw out either way but dropping them on a force hidding below ground is kind of pointless and risks further damage to the plant.

>>34052 Trying not to commit war crimes, minimize casualties, and do simple "drill hole" plans while under fire without having your machinery exploded is easier said than done. Russians still think there are civilians down there. Plus there are water pumps inside of the facility and allegedly enough ammunition to get into the kiloton ranges if it's set off (thankfully Azov hasn't been suicidal enough to do so yet, if it even exists). 1 would kill the 30k Russian troops around the vicinity, 2 risks 1 if there is an accident or Azov becomes suicidal and also counts as "chemical warfare" according to NATO doctrine, 3 risks 1 and is beyond Russia's mass production capabilities, 4 risks 1 and can result in creating an escape route for Azov, and 5 risks 1 but has also been classified as "chemical warfare" by NATO and also requires a metric fuckton of seawater because of the facility's water pumps. I am certain the Russians have thought of all of those, but they are probably not suicidal enough to give Azov who just wants a firefight an excuse to blow the whole damn facility up along with the Russians.
>>34053 >the 30k Russian troops around the vicinity ???

However it seems that the Russian are now in control on the Snek island, looks like a major Ukrainian attempt to take island back was soundly beaten. Ukrainians also admitted they lost some hot shot pilot, probably during the I'll fated assault. Also, there are several videos posted from volunteer recruitment stations in Moscow, they are full to the brim, people are lining up in long columns outside of them to sing up. Looks like Victory day parade got the fevour going.

The taking of Mariupol means that Russia now owns all land surrounding the sea of Azov so while it is technically "international waters" it is treated the same as, say, the Mississippi river or the Northwest Passage where you need the host country's permission in order to enter. Before the breakaway republics, Mariupol was how Ukraine shipped metal goods and coal abroad. Since Sevastopol exists and Russia is unlikely to rebuild the city in full (nor need to), Mariupol is likely to become a warm water naval training center/military town for Russia after the war is over.

I think the Russians might be planning an actual feint on the Kharkiv front. They're giving up the territory without much of a fight and Ukrainian forces are being forced to leave the city and spread thin, leaving only the police forces and national guard back in the city. If Ukrainians keep spreading their forces northward, it could trigger a general mobilization if they cross the Russian border then with Russian gains to their south, the Russians will be able to pull a sneak attack on Kharkiv's backside while it's undefended. Obviously they don't have enough troops to take the city but they have more than enough to shell the shit out of key military structures in the rear line previously considered unreachable, which would be a nightmare for Ukrainian logistics, and it would probably secure Protopopivka (where the Ukrainians are attacking Izium from) under Russian control. Used https://gfsis.org.ge/maps/russian-military-forces as a source for Russian numbers.

It may be Turkey’s “invincible assault drone” that’s not so invincible is partly due to Ukraine using them in stupid ways.
>>34109 Pretty much. The entire Snake Island operation was believed (rumor) to be at the demands of America and Turkey to make PR gains even if it cost troops. America meant equipment while Turkey meant physical bodies protecting their drones, so now Turkey is pissed. Some countries have already begun discussing reducing or canceling their drone orders after their lackluster (not terrible just lackluster) performance in Ukraine.

>>34103 This will be the first strategically relevant victory Ukraine has had in the war if they manage to secure the Kharkiv axis and and gain some room. And with how the rest of the eastern front is going Ukraine had to do something to buy some time even if it does put them at a compromised position. Although with Ukraine's logistics their ability to maintain this for a substantive amount of time is tenuous. >>34115 PR gains could also be why the Ukrainians took the risk of moving out of Kharkiv, but they've been launching near suicidal attacks since mid April if Russian sources are to be believed. Although I think it would be mainly the U.S. demanding PR gains as an attempt for the current administration to spin something positive for itself, that our absurd spending is beating poutine.

Senator Graham published an op-ed Friday, arguing the designation will allow the US to conduct more legal and economic warfare against Russia. >However, Graham does not link Russia to a terrorist group. Rather, he compares the invasion of Ukraine to the Nazi military campaign during World War Two and claims Vladimir Putin is a "megalomaniac wanting to rewrite the map of Europe and recreate the former Russian Empire." >The Senator also urges the passing of the $33 billion aid bill for Ukraine, prosecuting Putin for war crimes through the International Criminal Court, and putting "more weapons in theater that can target the Russian military offensively." >On Saturday, the Speaker of the Russian State Duma claimed the Western intervention in Ukraine amounted to direct attacks on Russia. "Washington essentially coordinates and develops military operations, thereby directly participating in the hostilities against our country," Vyacheslav Volodin said. >Baier posed two questions to Graham, asking if he was concerned that increasing military involvement in Ukraine could lead to direct confrontation with Russia. >The Senator was dismissive of the potential conflict between nuclear powers saying, "we can’t let him [Putin] win in Ukraine.” >Graham boldly called on the US to "take out Putin" and said the Russian leader no longer had an "off-ramp." He predicted that the lack of an off-ramp would provoke Putin to use chemical or nuclear weapons, causing the US to enter the conflict directly.

The Russian economy has so far fared better than expected under tough sanctions and is likely to suffer only a shallow — although drawn-out — recession, according to JPMorgan. The Wall Street bank said business sentiment surveys from the country "are signaling a not very deep recession in Russia, and therefore imply upside risks to our growth forecasts," in a note sent to clients last week and released publicly Monday. The US and its allies slapped tough economic sanctions on Russia in late February after Vladimir Putin's troops invaded Ukraine. The stringency of the measures prompted forecasters to predict a dramatic slowdown in Russia's economy. In March, JPMorgan forecasted that Russian gross domestic product would contract 35% quarter-over-quarter in the second quarter, and 7% for the year. The IMF expects Russia's economy to shrink 8.5% in 2022. Yet the bank told clients last week that the country's economy is in better shape than expected, judging from business surveys and high-frequency indicators such as electricity consumption and financial flows. "The data at hand therefore do not point to an abrupt plunge in activity, at least for now," JPMorgan's analysts wrote. They said GDP in the second quarter would likely be better than predicted in March. To be sure, JPMorgan said Russia's economy is far from where it would be if the invasion hadn't happened.

They need an excuse to bring back the manufacturing and can't justify a direct loan for make-work projects.

Lithuania's parliament has designated Russia a terrorist country and its actions in Ukraine as genocide. The Lithuanian Seimas tweeted Tuesday that its members had passed the resolution unanimously. It's not the first to formally accuse Russia of genocide: Canadian lawmakers unanimously adopted such a motion last month. Lithuania's resolution says that Russia's armed forces and mercenaries have committed war crimes in Ukraine, citing the atrocities reported in places Bucha, Irpin, Mariupol, Borodyaka, Hostomel and other cities, according to public broadcaster Lithuanian National Radio and Television (LRT). LRT says the resolution describes Russia's intent as destroying Ukraine and breaking its spirit by "killing entire families, including children, abducting and raping people, and mocking them and the bodies of the murdered." Lawmakers are calling for Russia to be held accountable for alleged war crimes in Ukraine. They are advocating for the establishment of an international tribunal to investigate Russia's actions, and want it to have the power to issue international arrest warrants. And, most recently, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis called for regime change in Russia in a Monday interview with the Associated Press: "As long as a regime that intends to wage wars outside Russian territory is in place, the countries surrounding it are in danger." Well, well, well

https://archive.ph/GukVh >Finland Days Away From Applying To NATO After Approval Issued By Nation's Defense Committee >Finland is said to be just days away from announcing its application for NATO membership, following on Tuesday the country's defense committee issuing formal recommendation to do so as the "best option" guaranteeing its national security. >Finnish foreign affairs minister Pekka Haavisto described the rapid timeline as follows to CNBC: "When all our political parties are ready — and the latest, the Social Democrats on Saturday — then we are ready to move as [a] government forward and then this discussion, of course, on the NATO membership, will come to the Parliament, starting probably next Monday. But then we are, after that, ready to send an application." >Since the issue last month became a hot topic of national debate and discussion for both Finland and Sweden in the wake of Russia's invasion of Ukraine - both which have historically remained neutral while seeking to pursue friendly relations with Moscow - the Scandinavian countries have vowed to coordinate their potential NATO applications. >Sweden was much more out front in declaring its intent to join; however, Finland shares an 810-mile border with Russia, making the prospect of NATO membership much more dangerous, given that in response the Kremlin has said it would build up its nuclear presence in the Baltic region. >FM Haavisto this week explained further of both countries seeking admission: "I’ve been really much in favor of us [Finland and Sweden] joining together and now it looks like we have a parallel process, which could end in a similar way," he told CNBC. Haavisto underscored both would submit application at "around the same time". >Last month there were widespread international reports strongly suggesting the applications would be announced in mid-May. This would ready the Western alliance for intense discussions to follow, crucially ahead of a major NATO summit set for June, and hosted in Madrid. "But even prior to that, the NATO Council certainly will discuss this matter and we are also expecting that single NATO member states will give their commitments and opinions immediately when Finland and Sweden will send an application," the Finnish foreign minister said further. >Finland and Sweden have already received such promises of support for entry from Washington, with Secretary of State Antony Blinken in a meeting last week with Swedish Foreign Minister Ann Linde saying the US is "ready to provide various forms of security assurances." >Without doubt this makes the increasing proxy war nature of the conflict in Ukraine all the more dangerous in terms of the potential for escalation into an eventual Russia and NATO-wide conflict. >However, the process itself of becoming formal NATO members would likely take multiple months for Finland and Sweden, also as the 30 alliance members would have to approve it. Given the current war could easily spread outside Ukraine's borders with such a move by Brussels, it's likely going to give even some of the more hawkish NATO member states pause in the "rush" for membership - especially those European countries geographically closest to Russia. >>34148 >>34149 Yeah it's becoming clear that there's no way this thing ends without a WW3 and the requisite nuclear exchange. How bad will it be Strelo/k/s?
>"The leadership of the Kherson region intends to appeal to Putin about accepting the region into the Russian Federation" -Deputy Head of Administration Looks like all the pieces are falling into place for the land bridge to Crimea.

>>34109 Large loitering munitions like the TB2 are a meme if you have WW2-tier SPAA with IR cameras glued on guarding your tanks.

But we'll see.
>>34157 Now that I've been thinking. Have Baryaktar drones been biggest watermelon sale in recent history?
>>34154 >Where did the watermelon seller meme come from? Not entirely sure but If memory serves correctly it popped up on several Syrian civil war shitposting subreddits where Erdogan sometime in 2018(?) had a Photo op in Idlib(?) with moderate headchoppers, in one image it looked like he was selling watermelons at a watermelon stand which got picked up by some rebel graffiti artists butthurt about him not sending more humanitarian aid to stop evil Russian air attacks on innocent armed civilians and the rest is history. The memri image from >>34157 only showed up after that or at least became popular that way, I can't recall any watermelon seller memes being posted during the 2016 coup attempt at the very least.
>>34153 What if that convoy 30km from Kiev that was sitting there for a few weeks without advancing was just a way to bait out drones? Russians did not have such big logistical problems elsewhere and they have been shipping some real sovietcore trash up there. >inb4 lol vatnik cope >azovs crackwhore smelling farts.jpg >>34152 Most likely. Odessa has been comperativly logistically untouched, it wouldnt surprise me if ukrs shipped most of these 155mm field guns and gepards down there.
>>34160 >Russians did not have such big logistical problems elsewhere I don't know by how much it mattered. But Russia's Kiev front did have legit logistical problems from pro-Ukrainian Belarusians sabotaging the railways Russia needs to supply that front. Belarus says they caught 30 saboteurs. I don't know if that's all of them. But sometime after that Belarus implemented the death penalty for terrorism. And so hopefully that's enough to scare off more potential saboteurs if/when Russia opens up to Kiev again.
>>34150 >How bad will it be Strelo/k/s? Depends on how bad the polling numbers look around August/September since that will determine who wins the house and senate in November. Biden('s handlers) wants his war with Russia and if there's any sign of populists getting in and preventing that he'll hit the nukes before anyone can say anything. By god they'll make an excuse if they can't get Russia to give them one. They gotta send all those young conservatives and anti-establishment anti-woke leftists off to die in war since they think they can do to Millenials/GenZ what they did to our Great Grandparents when they got uppity. The powers that be are out of touch that blind patriotism is dead in the water and will result in civil war, and the cards are stacked against them if even one military base gets taken proper. >>34152 Russia will almost certainly turn to Odessa. They announced that they plan to extend the land bridge all the way until Transnistria which means taking the entire Ukrainian coast, or at least up until Odessa splitting the country in half. >>34155 Depends. If Ukraine seems like they are going to give out before accomplishing the goal of killing as many Russians as possible draining international stockpiles as per >>34118 then NATO is just as likely to abandon them completely since the only nations particularly angry about the Black Sea are Romania, the UK who likes to park their nukes there, and America. Most of the African and Middle Eastern nations will just jump ship to the Russian side for food outside of Turkey who is royally fucked in such a scenario. Turkey will have to justify keeping the ports blocked once/if Russia takes the entire Ukrainian coast since Ukraine will no longer be a "Black Sea Nation" which is gonna spark lots of shitposting. I could see Turkey being forced by NATO to claim that "the war in Ukraine never ended therefore the embargo is permanent" giving us just one more WWIII scenario.
>>34158 That would be the F35 which is just barely starting to justify its existence after just barely starting to see some kind of measure of success (just in time fot a new jet design to sink money into). Bayraktar drones are a close second in competition with China's "high altitude engine" and the East's Hypersonic missiles. Russia seems to be the only ones who have got those working with any level of accuracy and judging by how they slammed into a residential district the other day I'm prone to thinking they are still too inaccurate unless those were them running open field testing for future use.

Anyone else getting the feeling that NATO ATGMs (maybe ATGMs in general) are not as effective as we thought they were? Maybe it is just my circles, but I no longer see the shitty propaganda about how US missiles instantly destroy Russian tanks. The same goes for the retards claiming that tanks are completely useless due to ATGMs. >>34150 >becoming clear that there's no way this thing ends without a WW3 and the requisite nuclear exchange I'm not the convinced myself. This is clearly just more political pandering, like when the US claimed that Russia was no longer considered a threat, while spending billions to stop the advancements in Ukraine.

Statement by Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces - First Deputy Minister of Defense of the Republic of Belarus Major General Viktor Gulevich: The United States and its allies continue to build up their military presence near the state borders of the Republic of Belarus. The group created over the past 6 months has more than doubled both in quantity and quality. The appearance in the waters of the Mediterranean and Baltic Seas of a group carrying sea and air-based cruise missiles, an increase in the aviation group in the countries of Poland and the Baltic states indicate a growing threat to the Republic of Belarus. It should be noted that a number of exercises are being conducted on the territory of Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. Exercise "Defender of Europe", which is expected to involve up to 20,000 people and a large number of equipment, 7 more exercises in the countries bordering the Republic of Belarus. At the same time, the development of questions on the use of reconnaissance and sabotage forces, the landing of troops, the use of special operations forces does not indicate a peaceful orientation of these exercises. Based on this, the Armed Forces have developed a whole range of measures aimed at countering possible threats. As part of the second stage of checking the immediate reaction forces, battalion tactical groups were advanced to the Western and Northwestern operational directions. To strengthen them, air defense, missile forces and artillery units are being moved forward to ensure their combat functioning. The grouping created by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Southern Operational Direction with a total number of up to 20,000 people also requires a response from us. In order to ensure the security of the Republic of Belarus in the southern direction, the forces of the units of the special operations forces are deployed in three tactical directions https://t.me/modmilby/14150
>>34165 >ATGMs They are extremely effective for what they are supposed to be used for (insurgents using them against strategic targets usually deep inside enemy territory during color revolutions and the like). They're only really good against riot police vehicles, light tanks, and stationary low-flying helicopters, but Ukrainians are using them as a general-purpose anti-armor weapon. Somehow I feel like the insurgency connotations of ATGMs are why Western countries with collapsing democracies are so eager to get rid of them at breakneck speeds.
>>34165 Russians have been posting videos of captured Ukrainians complaining about Javelin/NLAW/Stingers. They say they often missfire and when they hit, usually one doesn't do the job. Also, expired batteries on Stingers and such. But I always took that for propaganda. Possibly hassoe truth to it, but I don't think it's as bad as they make it out to be.

>>34165 ATGMs become a meme in the AT role against reasonably modern reactive armor let alone hard-kill APS, but they're still useful as man-portable direct fire artillery supplements against soft or lightly armored targets.
>>34165 I figure it's a combination of Russian experience in how to successfully prevent & survive ATGM attacks and inexperienced Ukrainian recruits using the weapons. I figure this is also why the TB2's have lost their teeth as the Russians developed tactics to better counter them; it takes about 3 months for a new weapon to be effectively countered. It can also be as >>34170 said, which is certainly probable as I figure we're giving them old stock and incapacitating a target is highly variable itself. >>34166 >those evil russians forced us to stop shipping gas to you >better keep funding us so we can win That pipeline carries about 6% of all natural gas going from Russia to the rest of Europe. I guess Ukraine's strategy now is to cut off gas when they have plausible deniability to spur Europe into doing more.

US Takes Wheat Out of Ukraine. War-torn Country Doomed to Famine https://southfront.org/us-takes-wheat-out-of-ukraine-war-torn-country-doomed-to-famine/ https://archive.ph/cMuFg tl;dr The USA is setting Ukraine up for Holodomor 2.0 under the pretext of "buying" their wheat to combat the imminent global food crisis. >In exchange for weapons and illusory prospects of becoming a member of the “European family”, the Kiev regime is dooming its own people to a protracted food crisis. >After the launch of the Russian military operation in Ukraine, Russian forces blocked the access to the Ukrainian vital seaports in the Black Sea. Before the war, around 5 million tons were shipped each month through the Black Sea. One of the main goods exported from Ukraine were grain crops for Europe. >This became another pretext for accusing Russia of provoking the food crisis in the West. However, a brief analysis of the policy of the Kiev regime and the decisions announced by the United States and European countries predict a long-planned famine in Ukraine. >US President Joe Biden attempted to reassure the Americans that there is no threat of food crisis in the country as the grain can be easily taken from the war-torn Ukraine. He claimed that there are 20 million tons of grain in Ukraine, and now the issue of its export is being resolved. In his opinion, this will help bring down world food prices. >On May 11, the European Commission will consider a strategy that would address technical and bureaucratic initiatives to speed up the shipping of vegetable oils, corn and wheat, some of Ukraine’s key exports, people familiar with the discussions said Bloomberg. >Europe intends to export crops by rail and , since the seaports are blocked by the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The problem is that the export capacity of the railway is low. Ukraine’s products also face a myriad of phytosanitary measures and quotas for land transport that complicate their ability to pass through various member states to their final destination, Bloomberg sources reported. >These are the main problems that the EU is set to resolve as soon as possible. >Meanwhile, giant columns of grain carriers are spotted in the Moldovan port of Giurgiulesti on the Danube. Hundreds of trucks are exporting grain from the territory of Ukraine to the EU countries. >“This reminds me of 1941, when Hitler exported grain from the USSR, took it out — and then attacked. So we export grain to Europe, so that they then take us for a naked ass, cold and hungry,” the author of the video comments. >The price the Kiev regime pays for the supply of weapons and financial support of its allies is too high. >According to the official Ukrainian data, the total amount of wheat produced in 2021/2022 MY amounted to 32,4 million tons. Based on the analysis of exports over the last five seasons (2016-2021), Ukraine exports about 80 percent of its wheat. About 6 million tons traditionally remain on the domestic market. This year, about 26 million tons were designated for export. >According to the Ukrainian statistics, since the beginning of the season, which started on July 1 2021, and as of December 15, exports of crops and grain legumes from Ukraine already reached 28.7 million tons. Wheat exports accounted for 56%. Until December 15, at least 16 million tons of wheat were exported. >During the period from December 15 2021 to February 24, 2022, exports continued in full via the usual logistics chains. After the closure of the sea ports, exports did not stop, but were reoriented to land channels. Only railways allow to export about 1.1 million tons of grain per month. Millions of tons are transferred by trucks. According to the most conservative estimates, from December 15 to May 10, at least 6 tons of wheat were additionally exported. >The entire harvest of 2021 MY was already exported and used for the needs of the Ukrainian domestic market. >Various Western sources, including US President Biden, declare the need for the immediate export of additional 20 tons of wheat from Ukraine. This is grain from Ukrainian strategic reserves in the amount of at least four months of wheat consumption by the domestic Ukrainian market. >In the context of the impending global food crisis provoked by the Western sanctions against Russia and disruption of supply chains, the United States and European countries are aiming to replenish their reserves, thanks to the crops taken from the Ukrainian people. >The policy of the Kiev regime reveal clear signs of famine planning in Ukraine. Amid the ongoing military operations, the sowing season was disrupted in many of Ukrainian regions. The male part of the population were called up for military service, some regions are under control of the Russian Armed Forces. Moreover, the spring of 2022 is significantly colder than in 2021. Not to mention the dysfunction of the agricultural sector, which was sharply reoriented to foreign consumers to the detriment of the Ukrainian market. >In December 2021, Ukrainian experts reported that “representatives of the flour and grain industries announced an unbalanced wheat trade: high-quality food grades were supplied to foreign markets, and fodder remained for Ukrainian consumers. After the refusal of the Ministry of Agriculture to fix export limits by class in the export-regulating memorandum, the Association of Millers, the All-Ukrainian Association of Bakers and Ukrhlebprom withdrew their signatures under the document. This happened for the first time in 10 years and jeopardized the functioning of one of the most effective mechanisms of mutual understanding in the grain market.” >Regardless of the developments on the frontline, the harvest in 2022-2023 MY will be much smaller. >At the same time, other branches of agriculture in Ukraine also faced crisis phenomena long before the start of military operations. >According to the Ukrainian statistics, egg production decreased by 13.5%, milk – by 5.8%, meat – by 2%, wool by 6.3%. According to the Association “Union of Poultry Farmers”, Ukraine imported eggs from Belarus in July – August 2021 for the first time since 1991. >The number of various agricultural animals also critically decreased: >• Cattle – by 6.9% (2.93 million cattle heads): >• pigs – by 4.7% (5.83 million heads): >• sheep and goats – by 5.9% (1.19 million heads). >According to experts of the Association “Pig Breeders of Ukraine”, the cattle breeding in Ukraine has already passed the point of no return in 2021 and “the restoration of the livestock is almost impossible.” >As of November 2021, the food prices in Ukraine increased by almost 15%. In 2021, bread has increased in price by 18.9%, dairy products by 15.2%, meat products by 15.4%, sugar by 20.4%. >It is obvious that such a policy of the Kiev regime will lead to a critical shortage of food by the autumn-winter of 2022-2023. >A similar situation took place in the USSR in the early 1930s, when the young Soviet state, weakened by the First World War and the Civil War, was forced to export large volumes of grain, including wheat, to the United States and other Western countries, including Germany. In 1930-1031, the USSR exported about 2.5 million tons per year. >In 1932-1933, the agrarian policy of the USSR, which caused a crop failure, led to famine in Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. The number of deaths in Ukraine amounted to 3 million 917.8 thousand people, Russia — 3 million 264.6 thousand, Kazakhstan — 1 million 258.2 thousand people, in total 8 million 731.9 thousand people throughout the USSR. >In 2023, the tragedy may be repeated in Ukraine because of Kiev’s policy. Russia will once again be declared the culprit of the Ukrainian famine.

Thing is, without at least one other front opening up for the two to link up, Popasna by itself isn't that terribly impressive since anything worth attacking is entrenched and everything not entrenched is in open fields where the Americans will report you to Ukraine's limited artillery bogging you down, or dense forests that need to be burned down.

Migration Service Will Resume Paperwork For Russians And Belarusians Soon >The State Migration Service will soon resume processing documents allowing citizens of Belarus to stay in Ukraine, and the migration policy for Russian citizens will be revised. >Nataliia Naumenko, the chairperson of the State Migration Service, announced this at a briefing at the Media Center Ukraine, Ukrainian News Agency reports. >"We had a certain pause regarding the citizens of Belarus and the Russian Federation. We understand how we will act in relation to citizens of the Russian Federation now and further, because this country is officially recognized as the aggressor. There is no such official recognition regarding Belarus, but we really dealt with a certain number of citizens who were of certain interest to our special services, because it was not clear what they were doing on the territory of Ukraine," she said. >Naumenko noted that today the policy towards citizens of Belarus has not changed and the Migration Service will resume accepting documents in the near future. >Regarding Russian citizens, she noted that those persons who already have a temporary and permanent residence permit continue to legally stay in Ukraine and can freely enter and leave Ukraine through controlled checkpoints. >Naumenko said that now the Migration Service, together with law enforcement agencies, is conducting a full audit of the grounds for issuing a temporary or permanent residence permit to Russian citizens, as well as migration permits and citizenship, in order to identify those who may carry out unfriendly activities against Ukraine. >She added that now experts of the Migration Service are developing a draft resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, which will regulate the provision of citizenship and a residence permit for Russian citizens. >Regarding the Russians and Belarusians who are fighting, protecting Ukraine from the Russian aggressor, Naumenko noted that in relation to this category of citizens, the Verkhovna Rada and the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a number of initiatives to simplify their acquisition of Ukrainian citizenship. >In particular, for those who have signed a contract with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the military card itself is a temporary residence permit. >Naumenko added that the Migration Service works closely with the Ministry of Defense and other bodies that accept foreign volunteers into their ranks, and if there is information that such a citizen wants to obtain a temporary residence permit, migration permit or citizenship of Ukraine, the Migration Service contributes as much as possible so that it is done quickly. >As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, since the beginning of the Russian war in Ukraine, the Migration Service has suspended work and stopped issuing or replacing identity documents, but since mid-March it has resumed issuing documents in most regions where active hostilities are not underway. https://ukranews.com/en/news/856526-migration-service-will-resume-paperwork-for-belarusians-soon-migration-policy-for-russians-will-be

In late April, Russia cut off gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria for refusing to pay in accordance with the Kremlin’s ruble scheme. >Speaking to Iltalehti on Thursday, Finnish Defense Minister Antti Kaikkonen said he could not confirm the warning. >Parliamentary group chairman Ville Tavio told Iltalehti that working groups had been informed of “various scenarios of Russia’s retaliation”, noting that preparations have already been made. >Between 60% and 70% of Finland’s natural gas comes from Russia, though the country’s main sources of energy are oil, biomass and nuclear power, with natural gas representing only 5% of the total consumption. According to the Finnish government, renewable energy surpassed fossil fuels and peat in total energy consumption in 2020, leaving the country less dependent on Russian energy sources. >On Thursday, Finland announced their intention to apply for fast-tracked NATO membership due to Russian aggression in Ukraine. Sweden is expected to make its announcement in the coming days, according to the Associated Press. >Russia has also threatened “military-technical” retaliation against Finland if it joins NATO. >“Russia will be forced to take retaliatory steps, both of a military-technical and other nature, in order to stop the threats to its national security that arise in this regard,” the Russian foreign ministry said. fug :DD >>34233 Isn't that island close and small enough for anything on its surface to be obliterated by a low number of ballistic or cruise missiles?

Charter provides that “no enforcement action shall be taken under regional arrangements or by regional agencies without the authorization of the Security Council, with the exception of measures against any enemy state,” thus allowing, theoretically at least, enforcement action to be taken without the council’s authorization in the event that the former enemy states challenge international peace and security. Article 107 justifies action taken by the Allied powers against the former WWII enemy states, while Article 77 contains reference to enemy states in relation to the U.N. trusteeship.

Also, can you give me a quick rundown on DPA?
>>34283 >Some analysts are saying those 70 vehicles are a culmination on past two weeks of fighting and have not been taken out at the same time, but who knows. Analysts are also saying losses are much lower than the Ukrainians claim. Most western media is widely repeating Ukrainian claims of "an entire battalion wiped out" with 1000 dead, but the articles that have interviews with third-party analysts have them saying it's more like 150. Usually the articles then ignore than and keep repeating the 1000 figure, of course.
>>34284 They have been beating the crap out of each other, that's for sure, Ukrainians have been pretty tight lipped about their casualties, but they had to do 4th round of mobilization and have been throwing old men into the meat grinder while Russians are using volunteers. Last time I checked, Ukrainians are still sticking to their 3000 casulties, which is absurd given just how much artillery Russians are using in order to make up for their deficit in numbers. It's funny, because Russians have been making steady gains at Iziyum while being outnumbered 3:1 at least, then they go and make a blunder than even ordinary grunt wouldn't do such as concentrating their equipment stonethrow away from Ukrainians, such as the pontoon bridge incident. Anyway, using either side for source is a mistake since they will lie about their casulties. Even 'independent' sources such as Oryx have been lying multiple times.

Kharkive is raised above the surroundings so Ukraine has basically left a fortified hill to take all these destroyed towns on the outskirts.
>>34301 Note that Russia only supplies about 10% of Finland's electricity.
>>34304 It all depends on how much of Finland's economy depends on electricity to function. 10% is going to be a tangible drop if it's 10% of a commodity everyone uses all the time in every way, directly or indirectly. For example, the USA's energy embargo may only be blocking 5% of its previous consumption rates. But as a poorfag I'm still feeling that 5% with gas that is +50 cents higher than it was before the war. On top of higher prices for everything else that depends on oil/gas to function at some point.

If it's worth anything, then it's from getting a glimpse into the pro-Ukrainian mentality that's, quite frankly, warped into morbid levels of elevating individual tactical victories into a religious fervor. It's like something broke in the pro-Ukrainian camp after the Snake Island defeat.

>>34319 40 billion is at a cost where you could solve American energy shortages with a combination of nuclear power (thus also jumpstarting nuclear production for weapons and ablative plating) and targeted mineral and oil investments into technology and land inspection/"modern prospecting" to get at the deep oil (read: exponentially larger and lengthier but uncounted reserves) to power America for the next 300 years at current fuel efficiency increases and successful hybridizations. We're talking the kind of deep oil where one well is as much as everything drilled before the 00s in America combined. The kind of thing our allies in both Europe and Asia would be willing to invest hefty money into burger pockets in order to get access to it while our enemies grit their teeth in frustration. But no. We have to give it to a fucking shithole in Eastern Europe for a "Democracy™" that is somehow worse than a royal parliament in functionality.

Russia is a knight on a horse compared to the devil that is America and in reality that knight is a fat retarded drunk riding a starving donkey who's only come to slay the demon so he can also rape the maiden (the middle class man of the west) that demon was raping too but instead of taking her life force he will use her as a sex slave until she dies. >>34309 Wall Street and Capitol Hill proved with the GME short that the dollar's value is assigned to the people that own it, all of this currency is digital and banks fucking take your deposit and gamble with it.

That's 40,000,000,000 dollars not "40 billion" or "40B" for a war they encouraged (then let Ukraine fight it alone) though it's understandable those zeroes don't mean anything to you because zeroes are thrown around so often by federal spending and 5% of that you and your grandchildren will never collectively achieve. America is giving Ukraine almost 12 times over what they give to Israel in a single year. At this point would giving Americans a bone "encourage socialism and laziness"?

>Posted by ukrainian account: Our source at the OP said that the General Staff forbade soldiers and officers to publicly criticize foreign military equipment that is being supplied as aid. As our source said, the new order has already been received by the troops. Servicemen are forbidden publicly, in the media, and also on social networks to speak negatively about military equipment supplied from abroad. Violators are subject to disciplinary action, as well as removal from office. According to our source, the new document was developed at the request of the media workers of the Office of the President. They are closely monitoring the situation. So experts from Bankova discovered that now the military is actively criticizing American M-113 armored personnel carriers, Javelin complexes, and British anti-aircraft systems. Not so long ago, Polish tanks, Czech Dana howitzers and a number of other weapons systems began to be criticized. Hmmm. The pictures of M777 howitzers deployed in Ukraine show they lack digital assistance suite, which is really what makes M777 useful. Without it, it's not that notable. The only other useful feature of M777 is its impressive capability of high angle of fire. Also the Excalibur round, but I have no data on how much of the said round is provided for a firing unit. The Polish T-72M1/2 tanks lack modern fire controls and optics, also it has inferior ERA from what I read. And for the Dana, I have no idea that's the complaint, haven't manage to find any criticism of it so far.
Fuck me, getting shot is one thing, but getting hit with thermobarics and folded like a wet tissue paper is something else. Id rather get shot than be on receiving end of a TOS-1 strike. At least that way there would be something left of me to bury.

>>34341 >The reverse of Russian gas from Germany to Poland was closed. Despite Poland's loud chatter about giving up Russian gas, Russian sanctions against European gas companies and stories that the EU will soon give up "dirty and smelly Russian gas", Poland continued to pump Russian gas through Germany via a virtual reverse, as a result of which it became one of the leaders of the European Union in terms of occupancy of gas storage facilities. I cannot find more than a claim for this though. But if it's true, then Russia tightening the economic noose on the West is technically still not interesting now. It will be more interesting when winter arrives.

Last night, the enemy did not strike at Kharkiv, focusing on the positions of the Armed Forces and the communities of the region. Chuguiv, Dergachi, Zolochiv, Lozova and others suffer from the shelling. This indicates that it is too early to relax. I urge everyone to respond adequately to alarms and not to be on the streets unnecessarily. Our armed forces are pushing back the enemy and the inhabitants are beginning to return to their homes. It's still too dangerous! Retreating, the enemy mined absolutely everything - courtyards, forest belts, roadsides, even cribs and more. Careful demining work is underway. Please refrain from returning until official announcements. Our armed forces are pushing back the enemy and the inhabitants are beginning to return to their homes. It's still too dangerous! Retreating, the enemy mined absolutely everything - courtyards, forest belts, roadsides, even cribs and more. Careful demining work is underway.

>>34393 One other thought, I've heard many times that the Western (((Leader)))s are paranoid that all their underhanded and shady dealings will be uncovered by this conflict, thus their batshit-tier levels of propaganda. So my question is have they left it all under they watchful care of the Ghost of Kyiv, or is the dirty laundry stashed away in other places around the country? Perhaps under all the cribs in Kharkov oblast?
>>34396 The way these organizations work, chances are that evidence trail was mostly obfuscated, liquidated, or destroyed. The bio-labs story leaks were the first of many "oopsies" that have more or less been cleared up. All that remains are a handful of troops on the ground who you will be able to judge had foreign soldiers by the levels of UN "relief" attempted for the region for "evacuation corridors" that will break down as soon as Russian checkpoints are established.

Reports of bigger Ukrainian attack towards Huliapole ending in a disaster. Russian claims numbers of destroyed personnel and mechanization that seem to bee too big to be true. Will update if there's either confirmation on those numbers or other numbers emerge. Also, Russian MoD finally send someone with a phone on Snake island. Vid related, lots of Ukrainian KIA. There were claims that among the Ukrainian assault force there were embedded western officers, which is why they attempted a second assault/rescue that also ended as well as you'd expect. No confirmation so far.

>The integration of the Kherson region into the economic space of the Russian Federation will give “crazy” results in the agricultural industry, especially in the context of a possible global food crisis, the head of the administration of the Kakhovka district told RIA Novosti: >“Those who deal with berries and strawberries have already signed contracts in advance for their entire volume ... We can bring a lot of useful things and we are ready” Russia has also stated they they will sell wheat and other cerials only to the 'friendly' countries. This, in combination with the 30% less sowing surfaces in Ukraine will pave a way for using food as well as raw materials as a leverage. Ukraine has also been selling 20 million tons of grain valued at 8 billion dollars in order to pay for Lend-Lease, some speculate this will lead to hunger in Ukraine. I guess we'll have to wait for winter to see full ramifications of sanction wars.

>>34428 >More or less ridiculous then ukrainian claims Kek, you know that's a rhetorical question. Russkies claimed ~30 tanks and armored vehicles and around 300 Ukrainian casualties for the cost of around 20-25 KIA/WIA Then again, these claims were made by 'correspondents' in the field and not claimed by official Russian MoD briefing. Also Ukrainians made counter pontoon bridge failure yesterday. Doesn't seem as big of a shit show as Russian one, but then again, nobody's reporting on Ukie failure.

>Lavrov: "Our goal does not include regime change in Ukraine. This is the specialty of US. We want to ensure safety of people in eastern Ukraine, so that they won’t be threatened by militarisation & nazification and that no threats against Russia emanate from territory" Looks like Russians will aim to take at least a hefty portion of fertile land in Ukraine. Odessa looks like a prize but it's unknown if Russia will make a push for it or settle for Kherson, parts of Zaporozhia and Donbass. I guess it will depend on casualties taken and casualties inflicted in Donbass. Russian goverment still seems confident it will accomplish its objectives, or at least they posture like it. Main question is Odessa. Odessa is not only important for its agricultural output, but also port and ship manufacturing facilities left from USSR. If Russia manages to push all the way to Transistria, as wishes for it were expressed in the past, it will basically reduce Ukraine to USA colony even more. It will also cut off grain production from European market. Making Europe dependant on Russian energy, raw materials and food would be smart move if it could be pulled off. At least in theory, as Europe seeks to reduce energy dependancy on Russia, and produces fair chunk of food, but I don't know if it's self sufficient amounts. Of course, they will still need to actually win a war in order to dictate the terms. Massive, war losing fuck ups, can still happen on either side. >>34442 They kinda managed to rebuild Grozny to be even better after they basically leveled it. Still, shame about the Azovstal, factories are always useful.

>>34447 Moscow is changing it's tune since they are realizing that they wont get all of what they wanted. Reality is often disappointing, don't forget about the war last year in Nagorno-Karabakh, up until Armenia surrendered we all thought they'd win, that they were letting the azeris in the south to encircle them and so on for example, but it didn't happen. I'm not gonna pretend i have any idea what will happen in this war, but i have my doubts things have been going the way Russia wants, also applies to Ukraine though.
>>34447 It doesnt mean anything and cannot be defined. Basically it is there for pr and to have western 20 iq retards scratch their head why they are fighting against people fighting bad guys. It also lets them always claim victory since >see this tree Ivan? It was planted by Hitler himself. Alright folks mission accomplished lol we can go home.

If Russia manages to push all the way to Transistria, as wishes for it were expressed in the past, it will basically reduce Ukraine to USA colony even more.

Wouldn't this just make the Senior partners of NATO even more warmongery than usual? Junior partners will probably stay neutral or even switch sides but I can't see a future where France and the UK bow down to Russia.
>>34450 Well, I think as log as they consider they can fight Russia by pumping weapons in Ukraine, they'll continue to do so. We'll see their reaction if Russia manages to severely cripple Ukrainian Army. Maybe they'll escalate, maybe they'll back down, time will tell.

Sounds like Russia is conflating all extremist/anti-Russian/whatever right-wing ideologies with National Socialism. I can see the wisdom in a man simplifying who the enemy is by putting all extreme anti-Russians into the same basket. Especially if they're shooting at him.
>>34452 Pretty nice gains for something brit glowies claim lost 1/3 of their forces and shouldnt be operational anymore. >>34453 Finally. >>34454 In short, russians use nazi sae way we use jews.

>>34452 >>34456 found the video of the dam, some of Toshkivka must be underwater, the river is flowing in that direction
>>34456 Dunno man, its 14 km apart from toshkivka going through flat fields for the most of it. That whole field will be fucked up swamp but I doubt it will affect toshkivka too much Also looking at google they seem to have digged this cannal long ago.
>>34453 >Uncertain if they're Azov or regular Ukrainian army. they are going to be taken to a hospital in Russian controlled Novoazovs'k so I'd doubt azov would agree to be transferred to Russian controlled territory
>>34458 I thought Troits'ke was Toshkivka, it's hard figuring out villages because sometimes the Russian and Ukrainian names are different
>>34455 >Pretty nice gains for something brit glowies claim lost 1/3 of their forces and shouldnt be operational anymore I might be a simple grunt who only completed basic training as a volunteer, but even I can tell you that an army that loses 1/3 of its fighting strength is not an army that keeps on advancing, and Russia is still advancing in Donbass where future of the war will be decided. If you lose that much men and not replace it it the field quickly, you're begging for peace, not increasing your demands as Russians recently did. >>34459 Who knows, even Germans in Stalingrad saw writing on the wall. Some of them even survived the war and returned home.
Due to the decision of Finland to join NATO, Russia has been increasing its troop concentration towards Finnish border. Nothing extravagant so far, few Iskander-M SLBM, and Bastion ASM have been spotte redeploying there.
>>34460 >it's hard figuring out villages because sometimes the Russian and Ukrainian names are different The base name stays the same from Russian to Ukrainian most of the time with only the conjugation at the end differing based on Russian vs Ukrainian grammar rules. Obviously there are exceptions to this rule but most of those exceptions involve historical context where the town goes by two distinct names meaning different things.
Looks like Azov doesn't want to play anymore. They startes crawling out of their holes. First batch has surrendered, mostly wounded, some fit. Russians stated they will be transferred to DNR/LNR medical facilities, unknown what will they have in plan for them in long terms. Probably captivity.
>>34467 >Russians stated they will be transferred to DNR/LNR medical facilities If Russians planned to keep them in captivity for themselves it's more likely they'd be transferred to Crimean facilities. Since that's not the case (at least yet), it's likely they'd be under DNR/LNR's custody which in turn means they'll probably be prosecuted under their laws (which allow for death penalty). Sucks for Azov.
>>34468 Well, unless they decide to exchange them for some reason. There was allegedly some talk about exchange, but mostly rumors. I think exchange would be a massive mistake and send a wrong message to the Russian people while heading out propaganda victory to Ukrainians. They should have more than enough other POWs from the ranks of regular Ukrainian army if they wish to exchange them. Still, very early to say anything, the surrendering just started, more details will surely emerge in the next few days.
>More from Vladlen. >1. 20 seriously wounded, 31 relatively healthy surrendered at Azovstal >2. Surrendered one of the resistance groups, which actually broke away from the main group. >3.

>>34470 Vladlen Tatarsky, a military journo and former member of LNR militia.
>>34471 Is there an article or something to confirm this? I don't trust random people on twitter.
>>34471 I feel like then joining nato is just a prelude to getting their military industry fucked over by american companies.
>>34473 >As for the expansion, including the accession of two prospective new members, Finland and Sweden, I would like to inform you, colleagues, that Russia has no problems with these states. No problems at all! In this sense, therefore, there is no direct threat to Russia in connection with NATO’s expansion to these countries. But the expansion of its military infrastructure to these territories will certainly evoke a response on our part. We will see what it will be like based on the threats that are created for us. But generally speaking, problems are being created from nothing. So, we will respond to it in a fitting manner. https://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/transcripts/68418 Basically just another case of either cherrypicking or wishful thinking.
>>34471 >w..we didn't care anyway!
>According to some reports, at this moment an emergency meeting of the Ukrainian leadership is taking place on Bankova Street on the issue of how to present the surrender of the Ukrainian military and members of other paramilitary groups at Azovstal to the population and the West. Unconfirmed. But if true, then it validates my suspicion of how even if there are no foreign VIP's in Azovstal, then Azov surrendering is still a strategically significant PR win for Russia and loss for Ukraine. Because of how "legendary" Azov is to Ukraine.
>>34471 Makes sense. Russia has always pushed America and the UK as their existential threats, not NATO itself. This is just classic doublespeak. >>34475 Russia is pretty much saying "we aren't arbiters of what alliances you haphazardly join, just don't put troops on our borders. Basically a machismo "bring it on" approach.
>>34477 Azov is like half the reason this war exists so Ukraine loses their high ground when Azov's leadership is kill while Azov itself was split among the rank and file early in the war as a shitpost against Russia. There's a lot of local questions being asked of Ukraine and the fact remains that this will be their first major morale loss during the offensive right on the verge of several more. If I was Russia I'd be getting those surrendered troops clean sheets and good meals in order to prop them against a camera and use them for propaganda.
>"They're not taken away, they left Azovstal, they're not captured" >"They're in 'voluntary captivity, OK?'" >"They have successfully completed task" Lmao
>>34470 Hearing reports of at least 200+ surrendered at Azovstal.
>>34482 Western sources reporting 10 buses.
>>34482 Quite possible, first few reports were around 10 for the first group that negotiated for the group, then another 50, then 300+. These are preliminary reports, no exact numbers but like >>34483 said, around 10 busses were spotted ,and several medical vehicles. The most recent news were : >In total, 2227 people are blocked in Azovstal (aprox. 300 left today) >There are even pregnant servicemen (women) >Surrender will continue tomorrow from 4am. That last report is third party, so not sure if 100% true numbers
>>34471 Russia has no need for Finnish or Scandinavian land to be honest, they want to threaten as much of Eastern Europe as possible and will probably only reiterate if offensive military installations are placed on Finnish soil. And since this is no longer the 1940s you can expect that Putler could just ask the Finnish prime minister if she wants Helsinki slightly singed or razed to the ground and she'll back down.
Turkey has confirmed it will veto Finland and Sweden from joining NATO.
>Ukraine confirms: Deputy Defense Minister Anna Malyar said that 53 seriously wounded Ukrainian soldiers were taken from Azovstal to Novoazovsk, another 211 people were taken to Yelenovka (both cities are in the territory controlled by the “DPR”). Total 264 So it wasnt exactly 300+ as first reports suggested, but 264 is not too shabby number either.
>>34487 Anyone sane should oppose the two joining NATO until the other NATO-aspiring nations are let in. You don't get to become part of a super sekret club just because of mutual enemies and a general hostility shown towards a neighbor with deep historical context.
>>34484 Is it finally it?

the defenders of Mariupol carried out the order, despite all the difficulties, withdrew the overwhelming forces of the enemy for 82 days and allowed the Ukrainian army to regroup, train more personnel and receive a large number of weapons from partner countries. No weapon will work without professionally trained servicemen, making them the most valuable element of the army. In order to save lives, the entire Mariupol garrison is implementing the approved decision of the Supreme Military Command and hopes for the support of the Ukrainian people. from Azov's telgram https://t.me/polkazov/4486 >>34490 >Is it finally it? it looks it.
>>34490 Russians seem to be intensifying their offensive, last few days were marked by some significant gains. Only place they're yielding ground is around Kharkov, My bet is all of the above. gib T-80BU or no deal
>>34447 >Then what the fuck does de-Nazification mean Probably just forcing Ukraine to stop attacking the breakaway providences which at this point it seems like Ukraine isn't going to have anything left to do that with if they keep up their dumb bullshit. Basically they will leave Ukraine as a gay US colony with none of the food production capability or sea access it used to have. I guess making 50% more on their oil sales and the Ruble being stronger than ever can also be considered secondary victories. For all the people that were saying this war was going to be the end of Russia at the beginning it sure has strengthened their position in the world. Hell they even got all the western companies to leave Russia themselves so now they can't push the globohomo on Russia anymore. Everything seems to be coming up Putin lately.
>>34494 >they even got all the western companies to leave Russia themselves so now they can't push the globohomo on Russia anymore Speaking of which, they've now announced that with Renault leaving, they're going to use the production lines to resume production of the Moskvich car line.
>>34492 >That Telegram. Shhh. Nobody tell them about Donbass.
>>34496 So not only has the west kickstarted a Russian fast food industry but an auto industry as well. Fucking good job with those sanctions retards. Why don't they just send them all the specs for NATO weapons so they can make those too?
>>34487 Even Finland and Sweden themselves have said that even though they wan to join NATO, they don't want any foreign military bases or nukes stationed in their countries.
>>34498 >Why don't they just send them all the specs for NATO weapons so they can make those too? Anon, what do you think the "trophies" are if not a "working schematic" to reverse engineer?
I like how LiveUA updated Azovstal plant to claim the area the Ukrainians were evacuated from is Ukrainian territory. Is this what Canada means by its "we win when we die" strategy?
>>34501 Personally I like how the Ukrainian government agreeing to let Avozstal surrender and become Russian PoWs is being universally described as Ukraine "evacuating" its troops.

>>34503 I don't even know anymore man. It's all so tiresome
Continuation of surrender. Another batch this morning.
>>34469 Chairman of the Russian Parliament have announced today that the PoWs from Azovstal should not be exchanged and they'll be working on a formal ban of such.
>>34505 I don't care how they spin it anymore. Losing is losing. And these people worship losing. I've known this for a long time now. Still this war makes just how deep they will go to make losing their religion more clear than before.
>>34508 That's why I stoped following majority of Ukrainian sources, they just dishonest all the time. It's interesting that official Russian sources, while not lying, just don't say anything or pick their words very carefully, but not outright lie. Meanwhile official Ukrainian MoD would post Arma 3 footage and claim it was real, post a picture of crashed Ka-52 from 2015 and just slap on new title, claiming it was shot down yesterday. Even a 4 star US General tweeted Arma 3 SAM footage. The absolute lack of analysis by these people is ming boggling. It's funny, because you have couple of faggots posting 'vatnik cope' even though they're the ones that have monopoly on cope. Sure, there's cope from pro Russian side too, but nowhere nearly as on pro Ukrainian side.
>>34509 projection isn't a fairy tale, I thought that after browsing boards for 10+ years people would pick up on that by now
>>34511 It's long past evolved from projection. It's downring delirium.
You know, I find Kharkov front fascinating. Russians still should have metric fuckton of artillery in there, ukrops according to rumors crossed the river at seversky donetsk, which 4um tier retards try to push as a grand victory, but it also prevents their retreat. Sure the russian supply lines are potentially in range of ukrop arty, but not without being in range of counterbattery attacks, and we all know how easy it is to fix train tracks. Shit will be good, I can feel it in my bones. My bet is on ukrainians attempting to push towards Kupiansk to cut off resources for Izium front, just to find themselves encircled in an empty field and leaving kharkov with skeleton crew. >>34507 Too bad, they are valuable prisoners for propaganda reasons. Just imagine what could be bargained in such an exchange >we will give you some starved morlocks to parade around Kiev >you will release all our prisoners and return some of our captured tanks
>>34505 >>34503 I didn't even see it this way. Just saw it as: >Ok, you've done a good enough job, you don't have to hold out now. Though maybe that's because I don't watch any mainstream media. >>34462 Do they want to give these to some random Finish snipers?
>>34471 Sweden, yes?
>>33944 No. One side cannot win in purely military terms, and the other doesn't want to. The Kiev guys are poor vassals who cannot win without help from their suzerain. It looks like serious help isn't going to come, ever. The Kremlins don't seem to try and push harder. Which may mean they are surprisingly sane this time, in that instead of jumping the bait only to take losses and help to create yet another lame clone of Balkans next door, they slowly pressure Kiev team into increasing desperation until either collapse or a coup/defection. The grand objective of a war is a better peace, after all. Which seems possible, since Ukraine was given kickbacks for the puppets, not resources, so they had to beg or steal all this time. And now even the puppets got to feel screwed over. Hmm.
>>34503 >russians use western style shock and awe to try to end war quickly >fail >hahaha russian tactics suck, see how superior NATO tactics ukrainians were trained in are?
>>34522 >>34524 Yeah it looks like Russia has decided to fall back on just grinding Ukraine down. Which the US is fine with because they're willing to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian. Europe on the other hand seems like it's getting a bit cold feet on that. https://archive.ph/QUaqU
>>34524 To be fair, in modern times, shock and awe tactics just doesn't work in any territory that has more than 3 bushes per square kilometer. It worked in low population density desert, but won't work pretty much any European country. The only way I can see it work is to carpet bomb your route up to and including the enemy capital and pant a flag on top of the rubble. >>34526 Didn't they say few days ago they won't accept any territorial changes in Ukraine? And Russian seem to be in the process of fully integrating Kherson and other occupied capured liberated territories. Especially interesting is they almost immediately implemented system for buying agricultural produce off the population.
>>34528 Yeah, I am glad that at least russians put this retarded tactic out of debate. >Didn't they say few days ago they won't accept any territorial changes in Ukraine? They have been saying this for months, even when russians gave them rather favorable terms. They want this war. There is no will at all to participate in peace talks on ukrainian side. >Especially interesting is they almost immediately implemented system for buying agricultural produce off the population. Its really the only thing they produce in here, that you can also feed your troops with and cut down on logistical footprint. Buying food at good rates is also a great way to pacify farmers. Hell, my grandpa when germans invaded was happy because he could sell pigs to them for like twice the price.
>>34529 >They want this war. Yeah, they finally got their chance to attempt to knock out Russia for foreseeable future. I don't think Russia will go down without fight. So far, at least on the surface, they seem to be doing pretty good regarding the sanctions. Funny thing is, I think Russia has gone "Fuck it, we'll depopulate Ukrainian fighting age men so Ukraine doesn't pose any long term threat, and anybody who surrenders will rebuild Ukraine without die hard hostile views regarding us, especially since we've been treating them very good as POW". That's my crackpot theory. The only real scenarios for Russia to lose this war is: A/ War becomes unpopular home (I don't think that's gonna happen) B/ Their economy tanks ( So far, it's doing fine, from what I've seen, but I could be wrong ) C/ Some sort of revolution or a coup ( Most likely imo, but still very unlikely) And honestly, all the aforementioned scenarios are far more likely to happen in Ukraine. >Hell, my grandpa when germans invaded was happy because he could sell pigs to them for like twice the price.

>>34492 Andriy Yevheniyovych Biletsky first commander of the Azov Regiment makes a video on the Azovstal situation.
>>34447 "Denazification" may have the same meaning as after the Second World War: kangaroo courts, soldier and citizen reeducation, party banning, political restraints, deindustrialization, and settlement. If they push to Kiev, a wall or some other barrier may even be constructed. If any Azov or claimed Azov members are allowed to survive, they'll almost definitely be brought in front of a court to expose embellished atrocities where judge and jury have already decided the death sentence. If they capture the comedian, it'll be run in the press as if they are finally making Hitler stand trial. He'll either be used as a humiliated puppet by the West for Polish and NATO installations or ousted if they can't get their hands on him. Of course, these could only really happen on the scale Russia would want if the war is won in an overwhelming victory. Something like other European powers stepping in would produce limited but still favorable results, seeing a humiliation for the Ukraine because they couldn't even negotiate their own loss and may fall into a population collapse. Regardless, trials of Azov and political restructuring are almost certain in a victory scenario.
>>34524 >>34528 It's more like Shock and Awe works against either poorly trained militias to make them realize what the fuck they're dealing with and force mass desertion or to demoralize countries that are all about "face". Shock and Awe would kill North Korea or China but it would fail miserably against Russia or any other European nation, in fact I think it just makes the population even more uppity about killing the SOBs that bombed them, kind of how terror bombing only worked in the Spanish Civil War and yet it didn't in any other theater for the same reasons. >>34529 >Its really the only thing they produce in here, that you can also feed your troops with and cut down on logistical footprint. Buying food at good rates is also a great way to pacify farmers. Hell, my grandpa when germans invaded was happy because he could sell pigs to them for like twice the price. Didn't the druggies in Afghanistan really like US occupation for the same reason? Farmers are the MvPs of any conflict. >>34532 I think that the nationalization of private businesses in Russia is a double edged sword, as on the surface it seems just like Russia acquired industrial capacity out of thin air, but on the other hand they lost most of the personnel, most of the knowledge, will have to either bootleg intellectual property or re-negotiate with hostile nations and worst of all they will not be able to export it to any non Asian / African country. Only good parts about it is the fact they already have the infrastructure built for the new companies, natural resources are abundant and at least as far as food goes all their restaurant chains will do wonders. But any heavy industry, car manufacturing, processors etc. I feel like they're just shrivel up and die once the gains from the war run thin. >>34535 To add to this, de-nazification (de-stalinization too) just means "get the enemy soldiers to switch sides". After WW2 both East and West Germany just reintegrated their own share of the Wehrmacht into a new fighting force.

>>34543 I think it's combination of all of the above. It's still relatively new weapon system and made by the lowest bidder. It's designed to be as cheap as possible since it's one use anyway, which means you kinda need to skimp out on any decent receivers, electronics and propulsion. Honestly, something like Krasnopol has proven to be a rather efficient design. If it was up to me I'd try to streamline the design and ramp up production to get price per unit as low as its possible.
>>34544 Imagine enraging a key NATO member over a bunch of Kurds Though in the event the rest of NATO proceeds (illegally) to make Sweden and Finland join, do you think Turkey would leave? And do you think it will just open a new can of worms (Northern Cyprus, Syria, pipelines etc.)?

Google's Russian subsidiary plans to file for bankruptcy after the authorities seized its bank account, making it impossible to carry on operations, a Google spokesperson said on Wednesday. Alphabet Inc's Google (GOOGL.O) Google has been under pressure in Russia for months for failing to delete content Moscow deems illegal and for restricting access to some Russian media on YouTube, but the Kremlin has so far stopped short of blocking access to its platforms. "The Russian authorities seizure of Google Russia's bank account has made it untenable for our Russia office to function, including employing and paying Russia-based employees, paying suppliers and vendors, and meeting other financial obligations," a Google spokesperson said. "Google Russia has published a notice of its intention to file for bankruptcy." A TV channel owned by a sanctioned Russian businessman said in April that bailiffs had seized 1 billion roubles ($15 million) from Google over its failure to restore access to its YouTube account, but this is the first time the U.S. tech giant has said its bank account as whole has been seized. read more Google did not immediately confirm whether it was the seizure of those funds that led to its intention to file for bankruptcy, or whether other seizures had occurred. The database of Russia's Federal Bailiffs Service listed two seizures since mid-March, without specifying the amounts, as well as other fines and enforcement fees. The service confirmed that it had seized Google assets and property. A note posted on Russia's official registry Fedresurs on Wednesday said the Google subsidiary was: "submitting a notice of the intention to declare itself insolvent (bankrupt)." "Since March 22, 2022, it foresees its own bankruptcy and inability to fulfil its monetary obligations, demands to pay severance payments and (or) the remuneration of staff working or previously working under an employment contract, and (or) the obligation to make mandatory payments within the prescribed period," the note said. FREE SERVICES TO STAY Google, which has paused the vast majority of its commercial operations in Russia in the wake of Moscow sending tens of thousands of troops into Ukraine on Feb. 24, said its free services, including Search, YouTube, Gmail, Maps, Android and Play, would remain available for Russian users. Russia said on Tuesday it was not planning to block Google's YouTube, in spite of repeated threats and fines, acknowledging that such a move would likely see Russian users suffer and should therefore be avoided. Rostelecom (RTKM.MM) Chief Executive Mikhail Oseevskiy said on Wednesday that Google was operating as normal in the country, including all its servers, the TASS news agency reported. In December, Russia handed Google a 7.2 billion rouble charge for what Moscow said was a repeated failure to delete content Russia deems illegal, the first revenue-based penalty in that kind of case in Russia. That fine increased by 506 million roubles due to an enforcement fee, bailiffs data showed. The Russian subsidiary's 2021 revenue was 134.3 billion roubles, Interfax news agency's Spark database of Russian companies showed. https://www.reuters.com/markets/europe/googles-russian-subsidiary-files-bankruptcy-document-2022-05-18/

It has a range of 5km and was nicknamed Zadira, or ‘troublemaker’ in Russian, he said. He didn’t disclose any other details about the new device. Looks like much of Russia's cool and expensive experimental toys are coming out for safer two-way live fire exercises, now that most of Ukraine's professional military is demilitarized or about to be demilitarized.

There is no technique and respect for people. ... in such conditions, we refuse to perform combat mission 2nd video In Russia, the first members of Ukrainian nationalist groups are put on trial: a criminal case has been opened against Denis Muryga from Aidar. In early 2015, Muryga, on his own initiative, joined the Aidar national battalion, and was subsequently appointed deputy commander of a unit in Lisichansk, Lugansk region. In 2019, he took part in the blowing up of the bridge, as a result of which sentries of the People's Militia of the LPR were killed.

>>34588 He is talking about russian defeat at the attempted river crossing, while showing ukrainian t-64 russians do not use anymore, actually confirming russian claims that it was contested and not all loses in it were russian. Its interesting matter, the place at this point is a strategic point all on its own due to the amount of wrecks that can be repaired.
>>34587 I doubt we're gonna get any halfway decent and unbiased reports from the field in the next two decades. >>34588 In that picture CNN posted footage form the 'victory over Russian forces, 80 vehicles destroyed, 1000 men mauled etc, etc. But if we take a closer look at the camo from destroyed tanks it's digital camo pattern that Ukrnaians use, not to mention T64 is the mainstay of Ukrainian tank forces. They literally posted destroyed Ukranian tanks and tried to sell it as Russian. They could have at least shown footage of an actual pontoon bridge and actual destroyed Russian equipment. It's all just a cheap way to manipulate stupid people.

Russia claims to have deployed Zadira anti-drone lasers and successfully shot a drone down. Ukraine has responded that such things are like German Wunderwaffen and claiming to have deployed them is proof that Russia "has no chance in the war" and is on the brink of defeat. Western analysts say that it may be premature to draw that conclusion, but say that anti-drone lasers are a terrible idea because "any anti-aircraft missile would have been cheaper, faster and longer range." They also speculate that Russia may use lasers to commit war crimes instead, trying to blind Ukrainians with them.
>>34597 >any anti-aircraft missile would have been cheaper doubt.jpg Isnt the major selling point of a laser weapon system dirt cheap cost per shot? Sure, the whole system would be costly since the portable, weapons grade laser technology is in relative infancy, but it would cost literally cents to fry optics of pricey UAV if not downright destroying it.
>>34597 >but say that anti-drone lasers are a terrible idea because "any anti-aircraft missile would have been cheaper, faster and longer range." But have unlimited ammo and lower logistical footprint. Also no ammo explosions. >>34598 Its even more costly since apparently it has its own nuclear reactor. >>34596 I wouldnt be surprised if we saw them soon.

Therefore, we have to crash the world economy with no survivors over somebody else's war. >>34616 Anon it's already ogre if you've been following the rough frontline. Ukraine is dicking around on Snek Island losing invaluable pilots/men, and they are spreading their forces thin out in the ruins they created outside of Kharkiv getting their artillery that were causing Russia so many problems blown up to "take land" from a strategic retreat instead of staying put and sending out scouting parties to restore order in the charred remains. Meanwhile Russia is just about done encircling the Luhansk front, and is forcing Ukraine to rely on a highway for frontline supplies, knowing they can't defend a highway supply line nor keep it up because of gas shortages. The troops are already disobeying orders and telling Zelensky they intend to surrender at the first sign of combat if guns, booze, bread, and women or at least more soldiers aren't delivered immediately. The Ukrainians are being easily spooked into full mobilization by small forces which is keeping them from properly transporting supplies or defending key positions with more forces when they need to. Frankly I preferred the meatheads getting themselves blown up with telegram selfies and other stupid shit over this current performance.

Over the past eight years, US strategic bomber flights in Europe have increased 15-fold. American ships with guided missiles have entered the Baltic Sea on a systematic basis. >Finland and Sweden have applied to join NATO. Tensions continue to rise in the Western Military District's area of responsibility. Adopt adequate countermeasures. >By the end of the year, 12 military units will have been formed in the Western Military District. The ongoing organisational measures are synchronised with the supply of modern weapons and military equipment to the troops. On equipping the Aerospace Forces and the Navy with medium- and long-range unmanned aerial vehicle systems >Unmanned aerial vehicles are actively used by the Armed Forces for a wide range of missions. Over the past 10 years, their flight intensity has increased sevenfold and their annual flight time has risen 23-fold. Since 2015, unmanned aerial vehicles have been monitoring almost all of Syrian territory around the clock. >During the special military operation in Ukraine, UAVs conduct aerial reconnaissance and carry out selective point-blank strikes against enemy targets in dense urban areas, preventing damage to civilian infrastructure and civilian casualties. Information obtained from UAVs is transmitted in real time to consumers. This enables troops to react quickly to changes in the situation and act as effectively as possible. >The army and navy continue to receive modern systems with unmanned aerial vehicles for operational purposes. >Strategic UAVs are expected to be delivered in the near future. Their use will save pilots and significantly reduce the cost of reconnaissance and firing missions by reducing the consumption of ammunition and the resource of aircraft.

For example, organizations such as the American Front and the National Socialist Movement (NSM), also known as the Nazi Party of America, have been operating in the United States for decades. >At first glance, we can call NSM a marginal grouping. However, the party has its own channel in Telegram. And that's where the fun begins. The channel itself is not of particular interest, but it has a private chat in which radicals from all over the world, including from Ukraine, actively correspond. >One of the key figures of the chat and the "Nazi landing of the USA" in Ukraine is a user named "Bone face". A US citizen, hereditary neo-fascist Kent McLellan, is hiding behind him, and he is now in Mariupol as part of Azov. >However, his journey began much earlier. In 2013, he was the leader of the mercenary group The Misanthropic Division, and in 2014 a member of the "Volunteer Ukrainian Corps of the Right Sector". He was directly involved in military actions and engaged in recruiting volunteers in the United States and other countries. >The main thesis that McLellan constantly repeats in all his correspondence is that Azov is not fighting for Zelensky, nor for NATO, nor for the EU. According to him, "Azov" is not so much a regiment as the idea of a neo-nazi "revival". >This character can become an important source of information and living evidence of the export of American nationalism to Ukraine.

There are claims of another failed river crossing, coming from ukrainian sources.

> Moody's on Friday downgraded Ukraine's foreign currency sovereign credit rating to "Caa3" from "Caa2", with a negative outlook, citing increased risks to the government's "debt sustainability" following Russia's invasion. >"While Ukraine is benefiting from large commitments of international financial support, helping to mitigate immediate liquidity risks, the resulting significant rise in government debt is likely to prove unsustainable over the medium term," the ratings agency said. >The agency, which earlier kept the country's outlook under review, revised it due to uncertainty around the evolution of the war and credit implications associated with it. >The Group of Seven's financial leaders agreed on $9.5 billion in new aid to Ukraine on Friday and promised enough money to keep the country's devastated economy afloat as long as it fights against Russia's invasion. >Moody's said it expects the military conflict in Ukraine to be more prolonged than initially assumed and forecasts the country's real gross domestic product (GDP) to shrink by about 35% in 2022. >The agency expects the Ukrainian economy to start a recovery from 2023, but expects Russia's invasion to cause a permanent damage to the country's GDP. https://archive.ph/W9wkH https://money.usnews.com/investing/news/articles/2022-05-20/moodys-downgrades-ukraine-to-caa3-on-debt-uncertainty tldr Ukraine debt has junk level credit.
>>34707 >Sort by most recent >"Ukraine" >almost every new video shows Ukrainians getting obliterated Either Rumble is Russia-owned, or Funker and Youtube war channels are completely biased faggotroids and the masses eat it up. I'm guessing it's the second one.

>>34713 i don't think foreign debt is very high on their "shit we need to worry about" list right now
>>34708 I remember at the start of the war liveuamap showed Ukraine capturing various 'sabotuers' hundreds of km's from the frontlines. I haven't seen anything since march so I wonder if it really stopped or if it's still happening and they just stopped reporting on it to prevent people digging into what was going on.
>>34716 Most of those were from uncoordinated attacks that went too deep into Ukraine in several cases. Now that front lines are reestablished and this is following a "conventional" war with fronts and such, those are going to be less likely. liveua and cen4 have both stopped reporting nearly as much making the DPA map the best/most up to date and closest to true in my experience following this since early on.
The only thing worse than reading mainstream news about this war is to read the comments under those news. According to one genius this war proves that Russian tech is 50-75 years behind natto, and Shina and India must be nervous because their tech is based on what the Russkies have.
>>34720 I stopped reading comment sections earlier this month, including for pro-Russian videos. I was reading them in hopes of stumbling upon interesting semi-related information. But it's not worth sifting through the endless trash.
>>34717 Liveua is pretty much worthless now. Its behind by days, has terrible pro-western bend and does retarded shit like changing how they count captured territory or showing territories >liberated by ukrops to make fun of russians. >>34720 I have been reading 4/k/ just to experience the meltdown when russia wins.

>>34722 >to experience the meltdown when russia wins. This is basically my main stake in this war. Just imagine the banter if when Russia wins.
>>34714 Not Russian-owned however rumble is one of the few places the sympathetic gather to without getting shut down. Otherwise it's more of the latter, just with some of the former swirled in.
