Russia & Ukraine Thread 16 - Bakhmut Blitz Edition Strelok 06/23/2022 (Thu) 03:32:31 ID: bd0d6b No.36308
Past the 800 replies or page 3 requirement.

>>36308 >Russian MOD reporting 60% casualties from Ukrainians near Hirske >while Ukrainian MOD's spokesperson is still fucking dead wow, rude
>>36236 >Worse than all three, according to Russian Telegram. Russia has the legal right to reclaim parts of Lithuania, ceded to Lithuania by the USSR in exchange for not playing stupid games with Kaliningrad. >Little fact about Lithuania. It considers the time under USSR as an illegitimate occupation. Thus, legally, the lands it got under ussr (including its capital Vilnius (Vilnya)) are no longer Lithuanian either. But Russia and Lithuania signed a treaty in 2004, stating that Russia, as a legal successor state to the USSR, recognizes Lithuanian borders as long as there is free access to Kaliningrad. Now Lithuania breached its agreement, meaning Lithuania will lose Klaipeda region, which was transferred from Germany to USSR according to Potsdam conference, and also they will lose Vilnya, which was transferred from Poland to first Belarus, and only then given to Lithuania by Stalin. Oh shit. Things really are escalating. What does Russia do to compel Lithuania to transfer the land back to Russia if they were refuse to either of Russia's demands? Or does Russia just go 'fuck it we already own it' and roll in while Lithuania screams invasion and demands NATO intervention and things start heating up right quick?
>>36314 >Or does Russia just go 'fuck it we already own it' and roll in while Lithuania screams invasion and demands NATO intervention and things start heating up right quick? At this point most bets are on Lithuania becoming the new Bosnia-Herzegovina of WWI/Poland of WWII.
>>36314 >Lithuania is gambling the fate of the Baltics and their own capital to gain brownie points with NATO and the EU While it could entrench them more, a potential Russian response could be a complete embargo, seizures, and expulsion of Lithuanian citizens. Starving Lithuania into humiliating itself by crawling to its neighbors is a viable option. Otherwise, if these treaties are true, Russia could declare Lithuania or its government illegitimate.
>>36314 WORLD WAR WHEN?
>>36236 >>36314 Are there any good English sources on this? I can't find too much. Just a couple articles http://www.cap.lmu.de/download/2004/2004_Tiiman.pdf has the following from 2004, but it's very vague: >Lithuania is strongly not interested in the restitution of the situation before World War II regarding its borders, which Estonia and Latvia are. Such a step would leave Lithuania in a situation where it would to answer to substantial territorial claims from all of its neighbors. That is also the reason why it always stresses a lack of border problems with Russia, as well as the fact that it has already signed a corresponding treaty with Moscow. The most detailed source I found was https://digitalcommons.nyls.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1324&context=journal_of_international_and_comparative_law in which there is an explanation that >The boundary with the Soviet Union derives from the Soviet Russian-Lithuanian treaty of July 12, 1920 (the Moscow Peace Treaty). and it asserts: >The Lithuanian-Soviet treaty of October 10, 1939, (the Transfer of Vilnius Treaty), which dealt with the transfer of Vilnius and the Vilnius Territory to Lithuania, and the protocol on the Lithuanian-Soviet boundary of October 27, 1939, are also invalid. These were unequal treaties that were imposed upon Lithuania by threats Later, the article described that the October 10 treaty restored the city and 21% of the Vilnius territory as recognized by the 1920 treaty (which had since been occupied by Poland until German-Russian invasion in 1939), but withdrew Lithuanian claims on the remainder, ceding them to Russia. It's not immediately clear to me how much of that territory is in modern Lithuania (this article was written in 1991, and so is quite out of date in that regard). That article goes on to say: >At times, President Gorbachev has stated that the Soviet Union should detach all territories that were added to Lithuania after her annexation in 1940. These areas consist of the four territories of Švenčionys, Šalčininkai, and Druskininkai, which were ceded to Lithuania by the Byelorussian SSR in 1940, and the territory of Klaipėda, which reverted to Lithuania in 1945 after the unconditional surrender of Germany and the restoration by the Allies of the German frontiers as they appeared on December 31, 1937. Which at least gives some territorial claims Russia might revive. The article subsequently explains that the territories ceded in 1939 were given to the Belarus SSR, then ceded again back to Lithuania only after it had been occupied by the USSR, and specifically in the same document that integrated them. In 1990, the Lithuanians rejected that document in its entirety, including those ceded lands even though (at the time the article was written) they were held by Lithuania. But for Vilnius, it concludes: >There have been three Lithuanian-Soviet boundaries since the signing of the Moscow Peace Treaty. The first boundary was established under article 2 of the treaty. The second was the boundary of the Transfer of Vilnius Treaty. The third, and last, was the administrative boundary between Byelorussia and Soviet occupied Lithuania, which was established on November 6, 1940. This became the factual boundary of the Republic of Lithuania on March 11, 1990. Each of these boundaries has assigned Vilnius to Lithuania. There were no other boundaries between Lithuania and the Soviet Union. If the Soviet government, in order to claim Vilnius for itself or for any of its republics, repudiates each of these boundaries, then it can claim, with equal justification, any city or any part of Lithuania. As far as I can tell, Lithuania's position is that the 1939 treaty and anything from then until independence is invalid, but that since the 1920 was signed between the USSR and an independent Lithuania, they consider it valid, and therefore claim all territory considered Lithuanian under its terms. The article implies that this position excludes certain territory that may be part of modern Lithuania, but DOES include Vilnius. The implication is that Russia (on behalf of its pet Belarus) may be able to press some claims, but I don't see where they could claim the capital. Note that this post was written at the same time that I was reading the report, so there may be contradictions or incomplete thoughts and things were explained. As an aside, the Tiiman report contained this interesting passage: >What practical risks may exist because of the lack of border treaties in Europe? One of them is the possibility that at a certain moment Russia may declare that, due to the lack of a border treaty, it cannot control immigration through this particular border region and open the gate for Third World immigration to Europe through the Baltics. The possibility of such behavior from Russia is highly remote, because this issue is also regulated by many other multilateral agreements, which are obligatory for Russia as well. So Moscow is not in the position to act in such an irrational way. Also, we have to take into consideration substantial changes in the world of security measures after September 11th. Russia is strongly supporting the anti-terrorism movement (with the intention of having a free hand in other areas), so such behavior from Moscow is not feasible.
>>36318 And I forgot to specify, it appears that the >they will lose Vilnya, which was transferred from Poland to first Belarus, and only then given to Lithuania by Stalin. claim previously posted in these threads is incorrect. As far as I can tell, the Soviets gave the city itself and its immediate surroundings directly from Poland to Lithuania, and only the surrounding region was passed through Belarus first. On the other hand, since the sources I read were old, I don't know what the 2004 treaty that post references might add to the matter.

Is anyone sure that Europe or Russia will give a crap about these near-century-old border disputes at this point? It seems both sides have pretty much decided that former treaties and peace agreements are irrelevant or null and void at this point.
>>36308 If Lithuania was smart about it, they should've just jewed any cargo coming to and from Kaliningrad. It'd piss russia off but it wouldn't lead to any fracas with NATO. Or a potential front developing. >>36320 With cooler heads, such treaties will get dredged up and politicked. With hotter heads, treaties are just pieces of paper; they can't stop a bullet.
>>36320 In general no but due the two important wrinkles here >Lithuania is holding Kaliningrad "hostage" >Lithuania is also a NATO member makes this a tricky situation for everyone involved. Russia most likely doesn't want to fight another war front right now but they can't and won't leave Kaliningrad to rot. NATO (i.e. US) wants Russia weakened but doesn't want to have to go to actual direct war with it because in that event nothing will be able to prevent a hot WWIII from occurring. EU, as much as they matter, wants to sanction Russia enough to punish them and dissuade them from further European aggression but they don't want to freeze to death come winter. And it's a real snarl because from a certain point of view part of NATO has committed an act of war (by partially blockading a portion of Russia), which means that potential Russian response wouldn't be an act of aggression but defense. Which in turn would make the NATO mutual defense clause uncertain. Which is an additional knot because if NATO declares that they won't help Lithuania because they aggressed first it'll make NATO look weak and make NATO membership a farce, at least for the post Iron Curtain admissions. On the other hand if NATO steps up then they have a new World War. Further more if NATO doesn't tell Lithuania to knock it off they it'll be caught in the position that any of the eastern fringe NATO countries can basically declare WWIII at will and force the rest of NATO to go along. And unlike the Russia-Ukraine thing where it's a battle of perspective of who really owns what, Kaliningrad is explicitly a part of Russia and they have every right to break a blockade and reestablish a connection to the mainland. The US would absolutely not tolerate a blockade about any of its exclave regions like Alaska or Hawaii, even if it were a peaceful blockade. No other Western power would tolerate it either. So in this case Russia absolutely has NATO dead to rights.
>>36322 Solution: Convince Koenigsberg to vote on secession. If Crimea can do it...
>>36323 Ironically you'll have better luck convincing Petersburg people to leave Russia than you do with Kaliningrad.
>>36323 Yeah that's not going to happen. 87% of the population of Kaliningrad is Russian.
>>36322 Honestly, Natto should start dealing with all of its weird situations within (Cyprus, Bosnia, all the breakaway regions of Serbia) first to increase the number of their allies and push Russia into a corner first, and only then start with all the passive aggressive acts of war.
>>36323 Even ignoring ethnicity it's the headquarters of Russia's Baltic sea fleet and the center of Russian military power outside of Moscow and Chechnya. I just don't see the population living there wanting to leave without a good 20 year blockade (and as it stands it sounds like they'll be back to "normalcy" in a month or two so Russia night decide to just not do anything).
>>36322 There was a conspiracy with just a few too many truths for comfort last thread suggesting that the reason America Ukraine is bombing Donetsk civilian centers is to ensure no party can come to the negotiation table without bringing this war to a head again in the future, so it makes me wonder if this isn't an intentional escalation of tensions thinking both sides are still playing chicken when in reality Eastern Europe as a whole and Russia are both taking their gloves off. I've heard from a few strategists now that if Russia invades Lithuania, regardless of whether NATO intervenes Turkey is likely to pull out of NATO in the somewhat-near future since Erdogan currently views Lithuania's provocations as an act of war and is hoping to leverage the EU to create a war profiteering bloc that remains neutral from conflicts but participates in all of them indirectly.
Before the thread gets too populated. Can anyone gib me the numbers for the russia vs ukraine threads 5-10? Can't find them manually on archive.ph.
>>36314 >>36315 >>36316 Russian restoration of Prussia soon. >Klaipeda It's called Memel.
>>36331 WWIII starting over literal Memeland sounds frighteningly believable in this clown world.

Have a hearty "Heh." to start out your day. tl;dr: There may be a Frenchie from a super high speed, Elite officer training school in Ukraine right now. If he is who he says he is, then the dumbass also failed basic OPSEC, and Russian shitposters have already geolocated him to send his info to the Russian MoD. >Elite French officers of Saint Cyr in Ukraine as instructors? >This week, an unidentified French citizen posted a photo in a private chat to tell his comrades that he had arrived in Ukraine. >At first glance, one might think he is just a French civilian. But on detail caught our attention: >Under his plate carrier (CIRAS, french army one) one logo can be seen inscribed on his jumper. >It is the logo of the ESM of Saint Cyr, the elite military school that trains the best French officers. It has links with other similar NATO schools such as West Point and Sandhurst. The school has also trained many African generals who have gone on to make pro-French coup d'état... >The man in the photo appears to be in "Мала Любаша" ("50.8370° N, 26.5174°E"), a village near Zhytomir. >Is this man part of a group of elite French officers sent to Ukraine to train local troops? We have passed the information on to the Russian Ministry of Defence so that they can take the necessary steps.
>>36328 >Turkey is likely to pull out of NATO Then they immediately lose Cyprus to British and US forces, possibly Egyptian and Libyan fronts as well. Right now EU/USA foreign policy in the Mediterranean is one big game of charades with Turkey just to keep them in their power bloc, the moment they go rogue or neutral is the moment that all pretense of mutual friendship is dropped. >>36333 Wouldn't surprise me, Merkel then and Scholz now have completely neutered Germany and France is the only EU country who's still invested in going balls to the wall in foreign countries.

Estonia would be wiped off the map and Tallinn's Old Town completely destroyed under NATO's current plans to defend the country from a Russian attack, Prime Minister Kaja Kallas (Reform) told the Financial Times (FT) newspaper and other foreign media outlets on Wednesday. Kallas said the alliance's existing defense plans for the Baltic states is to allow them to be overrun before liberating them after 180 days. She pointed out that it is just over 100 days since Russia launched its full-scale invasion of Ukraine and that the atrocities carried out by the Russians at Bucha occurred after 80 days. "If you compare the sizes of Ukraine and the Baltic countries, it would mean the complete destruction of countries and our culture," the FT reported Kallas saying. "Those of you who have been to [the capital] Tallinn and know our old town and the centuries of history that's here and centuries of culture that's here — that would all be wiped off the map, including our people, our nation." The prime minister was speaking ahead of NATO's summit in Madrid which starts on Tuesday (June 28). Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania are submitting a joint proposal for additional troops and permanent division command centers in each country, a step above the current Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) temporary rotating troops which have been called a "tripwire" and aim to deter a Russian attack. "Now everyone sees that this tripwire concept doesn't really work," Kallas said. All NATO allies must agree upon the proposal and Estonia has been working to secure their support. https://news.err.ee/1608638245/kallas-estonia-would-be-wiped-from-map-under-existing-nato-plans

>>36349 The National Cyber Security Center (NKSC) of Lithuania has issued a public warning about a steep increase in distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks directed against public authorities in the country. DDoS is a special type of cyberattack that causes internet servers to be overwhelmed by a large number of requests and garbage traffic, rendering the hosted sites and services inaccessible for legitimate visitors and users. According to NKSC, due to these cyberattacks, Lithuania's transportation agencies, financial institutions, and other large entities have experienced temporary service disruptions. “The NCSC urges all managers of critical information infrastructure and state information resources to take additional security measures and to follow the NCSC recommendations for protection against service disruption attacks,” advises the public notice. The agency provided a link to a PDF containing extensive guidance on defending against all types of DDoS attacks used by threat actors today, so system administrators are advised to apply the recommended mitigations. At this time, there are no reports of severe problems or high-impact disruptions coming from the country, but some services like those of the Lithuanian Railways are facing problems with ticketing and client communications. Possible Russian retribution? On June 21, 2022, a Russian group of hacktivists called “Legion – Cyber Spetsnaz RF” posted on Telegram declaring cyberwar against many Lithuanian organizations. The listed entities include large banks, logistic companies, internet providers, airports, energy firms, mass media groups, and various state and ministry sites. The large number of listed websites could be spreading the group’s available DDoS firepower too thin, as these hacktivist operations rely on volunteers who use the provided tools to generate and send requests to the targets. This particular group of actors is an offshoot of the Killnet group, which became notorious for attacking Romanian government websites in April and Italian state platforms in May 2022. Russian hackers hit Lithuanian sites with DDoS attacks because the country’s government imposed a limited goods transportation blockade between Russia and the Kaliningrad exclave as part of EU sanctions. The Kremlin perceived this move as extraordinarily aggressive and illegal, and the hacktivists who support the Russian government were quick to orchestrate and launch cyberattacks against Lithuania. https://web.archive.org/web/20220623181317/https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/lithuania-warns-of-rise-in-ddos-attacks-against-government-sites/

>YURI WAR BRIEFING Slavyansk: Russian offensive resumed near Dolina towards Slavyansk after several days of regrouping. Gorskoye-Zolotoye: number of the prisoners is lower than expected, apparently a significant number of UA troops managed to withdraw. Lisichansk: apparently, a withdrawal orders have been given to the Lisichansk group of Ukrainian troops, but some notable number of the units are unable to comply. Watch the Lisichansk oil refinery - if its taken, the grouping is surrounded. Possible breakthrough attempt this night. >State of the fronts as of 20:00 MSK of June, 23. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GusaiGCN6vQ Sorry for the Jewtube link. But on Rumble I cannot find Yuri's war briefing videos. Also this video is for 22 June. But the video for the green text ought to release on this YouTube channel tomorrow, probably. Moreover this war briefing stuck out to me because Ukraine is apparently doing the bizarre thing of (attempting) to retreat from an obviously lost position, even a strategic position like Lisichansk.

>>36420 I don't know how to search it, i just remember reading it from two separate sources which could be russian tabloids badly translated Chunk of the story is about a russian rock/pop band frontman doing a gig in some fancy political meeting for browny borsch points, some of the backscene string pullers and tough officials were there to look at the ladies and talk in whispers. Anyways the story supposedly goes that while gigging the lights went off (i think with a flash even) and he glimpsed the audience and then back to his stage/band to see everything was okay, but he recoiled in panic to see the audience again because he thought he saw something weird, he confirmed it and after that played one more song and bailed hard to tell the story later. What he saw while some of the audience members were adjusting to the darkness is where the controversy and interpretation begins. I searched for generic terms but i don't seem to find the sources, i read it time ago in either endchan /new/ or the old place's /pol/ which had /x/ threads before they were banned along with the book/pdf threads. It kinda goes like the Billy Corgan hotel room story but not quite as hard and explicit as he tells it.
>>36415 That's the best part is only gas hikes in the last month or so can reasonably be blamed on Putin due to how slow the economy is, and given Biden's track record even that can't be confirmed. $2 gas is probably a pipe dream within our lifetimes since it only hit that low because of Chink flu making oil companies pay people to buy their barrels, gas should be around $3 to represent a healthy economy, but that's still a $2 price cut.
>>36416 Nuclear is still borrowed time as well. We've got enough uranium to power the world, but only for about 200-250 years. The whole idea was always nuclear in order to give physicists the century to three centuries they need to develope a working prototype fusion reactor.
>>36422 I'm skeptical with anything regarding snakes since snakes are one of those critters that have been burned into the subconscious of mankind as a danger/threat.

Thing that makes me wonder is how prevalent the reports of such things, in somewhat consistent form, appear in many cultures and usually doing the same things along with silly fuckers in the media getting tape over their mouths very quickly for daring mentioning things related to the topic. The ruskie one made me wonder even more because it's one of those instances that happened outside the US. Polite sage due to wildly off-topic OR IS IT

>>36492 Russians claim Severodonetsk is fully captured, including Azot chemical works. Lisichansk will maybe last for a few days, no more than a week I guess, as Ukrainians have apparently been retreating from Lisichansk while leaving behind a token defense force to cover the retreat. Still waiting on more video confirmation of these claims, as this is all happening in less than one day. >>36493 That’s funny. But y tho? I know he’s dead for real. But why? I don’t understand.

situation on the Odessa direction and near Snake Island as of 2:30 p.m. on June 26, 2022 by @rybar > On the night of June 25-26, units of a grouping of dissimilar forces of Ukraine carried out a massive shelling of the positions of the Russian Armed Forces on Snake Island. >Barrel artillery, including 155 mm M777 howitzers, and Western-made MLRSs were used. Three MiG-29 fighters and one Su-25 attack aircraft, probably taken off from the Voznesensk airfield, were operating in the area south of Zatoka. > According to a Russian Defense Ministry press release, air defense units shot down the Su-25 aircraft as well as 12 artillery and MLRS rounds. >Another bombardment was preceded by increased activity of the US Air Force and NATO Air Force reconnaissance aircraft flights over the territory of Romania and the Black Sea water area - at least 10 units. >The day before the previous attempted attack on the Snake River on 20 June exactly the same picture was observed: at least 10 reconnaissance planes were in the air (against the "usual" outfit of up to six aircraft). >The Ukrainian command said after the failed attempt on June 20 that the AFU would continue attacks on the island until its complete liberation. During the night, there was probably an assessment of the state of the air defense systems on Snake (positions, number of systems and ammunition). >As in the previous case, various types of reconnaissance aircraft were active in the air: electronic and radio reconnaissance and long-range radar detection. In the coming days we should expect a more intense attack on the island's garrison. >It is for this purpose that the American leadership has additionally transferred 18 patrol boats to the "mosquito fleet". It is not ruled out that the surface equipment is either on its way or has already been delivered to the Ukrainians.

>>36538 >>36539 Why the hell does ukraine want snake island so badly? It can't be for a moral victory at this point because repeated failures are going to make it seem like the price was too high even if they pull it off. I can only guess at two possibilities. A: whathisname wants to kill as many of his own people as possible or B: They want to capture snake island so that the US can offload all sorts of missiles and shit there. B seems highly unlikely though.
>>36546 Snake Island allows the Russians to keep an eye on what American reconnaissance aircraft are doing and endangers shipments from Romania into Ukraine or from the Black Sea into Ukraine. Ukraine is currently going broke because they can't ship out grain fast enough (in three months they shipped 1/6th of what they would normally ship in 1 month) and outside of America (American currency not being particularly trusted by the world right now), everybody else is calling on Ukraine to start paying some of their debts back in grain if they can't pay it in money. Russia doesn't particularly want or need Snek Island in relation to their overall operation, however Ukraine would greatly benefit from reducing Russian naval presence and/or securing a sea trade route, so they really do need it.

Russia is claiming that Ukraine is sending completely untrained (not even basic boot camp) to the front lines, so they went and blew up the training camps. There has been a movement of Ukrainian troops from the boot camps not hit towards the front line near Bakhmut. >>36554 >But it's obvious they wont ever get snake island back. It's obvious after the Russians reinforced it, but that could have been a bluff. >They're just sending men to die and equipment being destroyed is my point. The periodic attacks made sense. Ukraine still has superior numbers even if their troops are fatigued, and you can only stuff so many soldiers into one area so it makes sense to try and take the island and keep the Russians on their toes. The most recent attack was an attempt by the Ukrainian MOD to test out American howitzers (they had been trained on them but hadn't deployed them prior to that) and it worked out quite well for them since they managed to strike civilian oil refineries near Snake island. Russian MOD says they destroyed the howitzers but there is no proof of the howitzers, only the aircraft (which Ukraine appears to have an excess of for some reason). I agree that any further attacks would be silly since it's now established that the Russians weren't bluffing with their defenses, and that the attacks seem silly from the perspective of troop retention, but for the Ukrainians warm bodies are the one thing they have an excess of.
Professor Mearsheimer's analysis of the Ukrainian war. Nothing new for you or me, but it's a good "introduction video" explaining/attacking Western narratives to get to the empirical truth of the matter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRDt2NWmlV4
What does /k/ think the final outcome of this war will be? A stalemate?
>>36564 Honestly WWIII. NATO is already alluding to helping Ukraine come August/September if there is still a country to indoctrinate. That aside, I expect that Ukrainians will turn against their leaders either from fatigue or from starvation by September/October.
In other news, the month of grace period on Russia's nonpayment of bonds has passed. Time to start seizing Russian assets. https://archive.ph/T95UU
>>36566 This is less Russians saying "we won't pay our debts" and more westerners saying "we won't accept your payments" really.
>>36567 Taiwanese were the first to have the grace period expired, so its them. It's also in the contracts: The bond contract specifies payment in Euro or Dollar. A ruble payment is not in the contract. If Russia wanted to pay in ruble, they should've written the contract that way. They didn't. You can't retroactively change payment currency and claim you're totally fulfilling your contractual obligations.

>>36558 >The periodic attacks made sense. Ukraine still has superior numbers even if their troops are fatigued, and you can only stuff so many soldiers into one area so it makes sense to try and take the island and keep the Russians on their toes. Except even if they managed to capture it it would get shelled to shit by remnants of black sea fleet. >The most recent attack was an attempt by the Ukrainian MOD to test out American howitzers (they had been trained on them but hadn't deployed them prior to that) m777 were used before, there is drone footage and proof of their destruction/capture by russians, dating months back at that. >and it worked out quite well for them since they managed to strike civilian oil refineries near Snake island.

I am going to ask the most controversial thing that i have not seen get addressed so far. Who is responsible for the current state of /k/ (the one we all came here from) and why was it allowed like that ? On the whole website there is ONE fucking general called "comfy happening in Ukraine General" (not even ug as it was originally called a decade ago) and that too is full of faggots blogposting and shills trying to derail it any chance they get. I asked this question and i got banned from that site for a month.
>>36519 Shouldn't make me laugh but that centrifugal force tho
>>36565 >Honestly WWIII. I agree but this is the dumbest of all fucking possible reasons to bomb the the northern hemisphere back 50 to 100 years. It's slavs righting slavs. The killing and war is bad but it's really not anyone else's problem or business. And it all ultimately derived from Washington elites getting their tranny panties in a wad over Russia. https://archive.ph/CPzJ8 I don't know if I fully buy this explanation but it's an interesting and dreadful possibility.
>>36572 >Who is responsible for the current state You know the answer as it applies to almost everything nowadays
>>36572 You talking about cuckchan or 8kunt? Because cuckchan is controlled opposition and is filled with glowniggers and 8kunt is a cuckservative cult that prays to Q.
>>36576 >>36578 Yeah 8kunt is dead. Glowniggers are trying their best to fuck that site up even more, they didnt stop file hosting for nothing. cuckchan is totally cucked, i thought they'd stop after making their "special" discord servers but guess i was wrong. I havent seen a place get astroturfed into oblivion this much and this fast ever before. >>36565 There will never be a WW3. US/NATO armies dont have the man power needed for what follows after the nukes fall. Neither does Russia. The current idea with MAD is everyone gets atleast one nuke to major civilian centres, industrial backbones. EMPs that will cause electronics to burn out and most likely all satelites going offline because they will most likely use those "domino effect" space weapons that even Russia leaked in one of the MoD videos. Once the stand off weapons end, then you need actual foot soldiers (mechanized or otherwise) to go through. Just have a look at the state of most of the countries's armies right now. Politicians and journalist, no matter where they are from, are usually always the most spineless, brainless faggots who do whatever their 'sponsor' wants them to. They'll shit themselves 10 times just thinking that they have to go to 'war'. Most countries have turned into welfare states and no one knows how these welfare 'enjoyers' will act when the governments stop funding them because there is a war to fight. The world we live in is hedonistic, everyone only pursues the next rush they can get. And to think they willl just let go of all of it is absurd. They simply wont. They have been getting away with doing all sorts of shit but just making sure a tipping point is never reached. The whole narrative with the shot was that in order to get your freedumbs and be a hedonist again, you "should" to take it. and people complied. All while politicians and the rich lived their lifestyle like they always have. Same with this war, and whatever other escalation that will happen. Russia isnt fighting how it should, US isnt giving Ukraine the weapons it should have to actually create a threat for Russia. Poland has been trying to incite Russia into conflict for so long, same for Lithuania. This 'default' that they created is only to seize Russian property over seas. Its all an elaborate IRL shitpost where hapless and clueless idiots from either side are dying for reasons unbeknowst to them, you or me. When Zelsinky was touting around in Kiev unharmed and unbothered, it was pretty clear then. And the fact they 'negotiated' deals with Russia through the Gayest Ally instead of USA. The gayest allly cucked out and didnt even deliver its AShMs and NLOS systems after some botched up story about how S300s painted their jets flying over Syria. tl;dr; shits fucked, nothing will change. thanks for reading my blog.

Situation on the Severodonetsk-Lysychansk direction as of 14:00 June 27, 2022 by @rybar >Allied forces of the Russian Armed Forces, the NM of the LNR and DNR, as well as volunteer formations are developing an offensive to encircle the enemy's Severodonetsk-Lysychansk grouping. > Units of the 25th Army Division of the AFU attempted a counterattack on Volcheyarovka to prevent the encirclement ring from closing north of the village. The attack was repulsed: fighting continues in Maloryazantsevo to the north of Volcheyarovka. >Assault units of the Russian Armed Forces, supported by army aviation, broke through the AFU defenses west of Volcheyarovka and occupied part of the territory of the Lisichansk refinery. Fighting is going on in the western part of the refinery and the village of Verkhnekamenka with units of the 25th OvdbR, 24th Ombra and the 17th detachment of the AFU. >The fighting in Maloryazantsevo and at the oil refinery actually means narrowing of the encirclement ring around the Severodonetsk-Lysychansk grouping. It is now possible to leave the outlined cauldron by the only remaining road along the bank of the Seversky Donets through Belogorovka, which is under the fire control of the Russian Armed Forces. >In Lysychansk, there is fighting on the southern outskirts near the RTI plant, Bila Gora and the glass factory. > On the eastern bank, the mopping-up of Borovskoye and Severodonetsk continues. Several hundred civilians were evacuated from the shelters of the Azot plant.
Results of fire attacks on targets in Ukraine overnight from June 26 to 27, 2022 by @rybar > In northeastern Ukraine, the Russian Armed Forces struck enemy positions in Khrenovka and Yanzhulovka in the Chernihiv region, as well as Slavgorod in the Sumy region. >In Kharkiv, locals reported four rocket attacks last night. Explosions were heard (https://t.me/rybar/34432) on the southern outskirts of the city, near Saltovka and in Pesochin. According to some reports, AFU positions in Kharkiv's School No. 29 were destroyed. >In addition, in the region, the RF Armed Forces hit enemy positions in Chuguev, Ukrainka, Zamulovka, Shestakovo, Peremoga, Russkaya Lozovaya, Grushevaha, Adamovka and Khrestishche. >During the night and morning hours, Russian forces launched missile and artillery strikes against AFU facilities in Sloviansk. The Ukrainian army's locations in Mykolayivka, Mayaki and Raigorodka were also hit in the suburbs. >In Donbass, the Russian Armed Forces continued to fire artillery at the enemy in Lysychansk and at the Lysychansk refinery. In the Donetsk direction, strikes were launched against Ugledar, Marinka, Avdiivka and Krasnohorivka. >In the Zaporizhia direction there were artillery duels near Vasylivka and near Poloh. >On the Nikolaev-Krivoy Rog direction, local sources reported that Russian missiles were launched at Nikolaev, but no information was later published about explosions in the city. >At the same time, at night, the Russian Armed Forces struck an AFU barracks in Bereznevatom, which may have killed more than 100 Ukrainian fighters. >On this section of the front, artillery duels also continued along the entire line of contact >A missile strike truck an ammunition depot for American M777 howitzers in the village of Mayaki in the Odessa region at night. One of the missiles was shot down by Ukrainian air defenses. >Ukrainian formations, for their part, struck Zimogorye in the morning hours, where, according to preliminary reports, a munitions depot might have detonated. >As before, the AFU struck Donetsk, Makiivka, and the outskirts of Gorlovka.

>>36579 I hope you are right, but short of the archive linked in >>36575 I'm worried the West will do something thinking Russia will just bend over backwards and then we'll have WWIII om our hands when they don't. >Once we step aside from culture war resentments and focus on the hard realities of geopolitics, it is clear that Russia will eventually get its way because it cares more about Ukraine than the US does, and has the ability to threaten or use military force to get what it wants. When resolve and capabilities line up on the same side, that side is going to win. And the reason that Americans don’t care about Ukraine is that Ukraine objectively does not matter to the US. All the sophistry in the world coming from MSNBC hosts, ex-generals on the payrolls of defense contractors, and think tank analysts can’t change people’s perceptions here. >The only questions now are how far Putin will go, and how tough American sanctions will be. Washington is now deluding itself into believing that it can help facilitate an insurgency in Ukraine. This will not happen. One of the best predictors of insurgency is having the kinds of terrain that governments cannot reach, like swamps, forests and mountains. Ukraine is the heart of the great Eurasian steppe. It has some forests in the northwest and the Eastern Carpathians in the southwest, but Russia is likely to at most occupy the East and center of the country, where there are more Russian speakers, and give itself final say over whatever new government forms in Kiev. The two maps below show the percentage of Ukraine covered in forest by region, and that country’s presidential election outcome in 2010. >In the second map, blue represents support for Yanukovych (pro-Russia), while yellow is support for Tymoshenko (pro-West). As you can see, the most Russian areas are those with terrain least conducive towards fighting an insurgency. So Russia will have overwhelming military power in an area with a great deal of popular support on terrain that will make life for any rebels extremely difficult. Its army would be wise to basically leave a chaotic rump Ukraine in the West to its own devices. >Even setting aside the geography of the country, there is no instance I’m aware of in which a country or region with a total fertility rate below replacement has fought a serious insurgency. Once you’re the kind of people who can’t inconvenience yourselves enough to have kids, you are not going to risk your lives for a political ideal. When the US invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, their total fertility rates were 7.4 and 4.7, respectively. Chechnya, where Russia has faced insurgencies in recent decades, experienced a population boom after the collapse of the Soviet Union and was still well above replacement with a TFR of 2.6 in 2020, down from 3.4 in 2009, when the last Chechen war ended. Ukraine is at 1.2. We see numbers like this and don’t stop to appreciate the wide chasm that separates the spiritual lives of nations where the average person has 1 kid from those with 3 or more, much less 6 or 7, each. >On fertility, Russia isn’t that much better than Ukraine, but it’s got the tanks and a powerful air force, and the side that wants to fight a guerrilla war has to be the one that is willing to take a much larger number of casualties. There’s a consistent pattern of history where there’s a connection between making life and being willing to sacrifice it. This, by the way, is also why Hong Kong was easily pacified when China started clamping down, and why Taiwan will fold and not fight an insurgency if it ever comes down to it. >A weakness of the American empire is that it promotes ideals few are willing to fight and die for. The US faced vicious insurgencies in Iraq and Afghanistan because religion and nationalism are more powerful motivating forces than a concern with the western definition of “democracy,” and Iraq was only pacified through Shia religious militias with ties to Iran. In Ukraine, the American establishment has been embarrassed by the reality that neo-Nazis and nationalist organizations were instrumental in overthrowing Yanukovych and have helped form the new regime. It likewise wasn’t an accident that the US had to rely on religious fundamentalists to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan in the 1980s. Even within the United States, liberal elites argue that they’re bringing women’s rights to backwards cultures while wringing their hands about the fact that Americans who actually fight our wars tend to be sympathetic towards “right-wing extremism.” This is the most overlooked contradiction of the American empire; you can bomb and drone those who resist, but Washington finds itself less effective the more it needs to rely on ground forces that are willing to make sacrifices for its ideals. Anon should read the full archive it's a good piece.

>>36606 Yes. If Russia wants their assets, they should end the actions that caused them to be frozen. It was their actions that caused their inability to pay, thus "willingness to pay" is a laughable defense. If they wanted to pay, they could simply leave Ukraine and make peace. >>36613 Consider that volunteers with military experience get Ukrainian citizenship.

>Killnet hacker group claims to have isolated 70% of Lithuania's entire network infrastructure [from the world.] Well, I guess that's one way to respond to a blockade with a blockade of sorts of your own.
>>36644 Why does everyone call it a blockade? Lithuania isn't blocking international air and waterways. Only the land corridor that is in Lithuania is no longer being allowed for Russia to use. That's not a blockade.
>>36645 If sea blockades are called blockades despite them not blocking land transport then this counts too.
>>36645 >Only the land corridor False. They're also blocking air traffic.
>>36645 blockade noun 1. an act or means of sealing off a place to prevent goods or people from entering or leaving Example: "they voted to lift the blockade of major railway junctions" verb 1. seal off (a place) to prevent goods or people from entering or leaving Example: "the authorities blockaded roads in and out of the capital" Maybe because it's the literal definition of a blockade. Something can be both a blockade and a sanction. Lithuania made it clear they were not embargoing Russia, therefore it's a blockade. Do you think a blockade means blocking the entire country on all sides or something equally retarded?

Came up on this. Not sure how accurate these are, or what's the source. I think destruction of M777 were recorded so there's proof of those, as well as few tanks, SPG's and MRLS. ColonelCassad is pro Russian or an actual Russian. Unknown if he has any affiliation with Russian MoD for sources , so you know, grain of salt and all that.
>>36651 IIRC those numbers sound about right based on OSINT estimates (minus the warm bodies but OSINT takes casualties seriously because human life is important while Ukraine throws warm bodies around like free candy so...). I think Russian estimated are even higher. It's important to note that the Russian MOD is actually pretty conservative in their estimates as compared to Russian propagandist sources, but both probably have higher numbers.
>>36653 >It's important to note that the Russian MOD is actually pretty conservative in their estimates as compared to Russian propagandist sources, but both probably have higher numbers. I've actually noticed this. Few days ago I posted about Russian nuking HQ of UAF and claiming they killed 50+ high ranking officers, and I was very skeptical, but lo and behold, Ukrainians admitted 57 officers died in the attack not even 24h after. This is not the only example. They made claims several times that sounded too good to be true, but few hours later video footage was released to confirm the claims, such as destruction of western howitzers and shot down Ukrainian planes. So I'm thinking numbers released by official Russian MoD pge is pretty reliable. Shame Rybar got their leak in Ukrainian goverment plugged, so they stopped reporting on personnel loss within the UAF.

A few days earlier, the Ukrainian Armed Forces had withdrawn part of the BTGr stationed in Pryvolye in the direction of Seversk. The occupation of Privolya and then Belogorovka will allow the ring around Lysychansk to be closed from the north. Coordinates: 49.000118, 38.252857

>>36664 Perhaps I'm not well-versed on the matter, but does anything stop Russia from preemptively invading Sweden and taking over while Finland is caught between a rock and a hard place having guaranteed NATO membership but being cut off from NATO? Doing so would prevent Sweden from joining NATO. I mean they could induct them anyways, but they could've done so with Ukraine and didn't have the balls to do it despite training 10k Ukrainians in NATO exercises per month for the last seven years. Even if Russia just took Gotland and Oland, they could pull the same games that they've played in the Sea of Azov and Sweden would be hard-pressed to stop them with the Baltic Sea Fleet located in Kaliningrad/Konigsberg. Sweden's airforce is impressive, arguably the most tech-savvy airforce in the world alongside Japan and America, but much like the Ukrainians it relies on being able to launch it from a limited number of airports in the first place. Finland makes sense joining NATO, but Sweden only loses because they'll get pressured to share their military tech/military intelligence while gaining the ire of an already pissed Russia on their doorstep in the Baltic sea.

>>36668 >Finland makes sense joining NATO, but Sweden only loses because they'll get pressured to share their military tech/military intelligence while gaining the ire of an already pissed Russia on their doorstep in the Baltic sea.

Consensus is that Germany woud still invade due to the whole lebensraum, food/oil issue and ideological reason, not to mention the whole shrinking market theory and 'vampire economy'.

Russia has a history of following threats with military force. But Russia also has a history of not invading NATO countries. Thus, Sweden gains safety from a coming Russian assault by joining NATO.

Couldn't Russia capture Sweden bloodlessly by dressing up Chechen operatives as poor starving moderate migrants, then have them depose the Swedish government with help from fellow muslims and create a pro-Russian caliphate? Suddenly bombing the refugees you spent so much time and money to traffic across the mediterranean and Roachland for peaceful integration into a modern cosmopolitan anti-racist Europe free of discrimination would be an even tougher sell for natto than militarily invading/defending from some evil Christian Orthodox backwater opposing the sacred American Empire.

>>36673 >This would have every chance of starting WW3. You say this, but so far Russia should have started WWIII by NATO doctrine several times over and yet everyone except Poland has had cold feet. At this point it seems like it's NATO that's shaking in their boots at the prospect of Russia doing anything, and that's as someone who wants this war to end with Ukraine becoming landlocked and Russia ceasing all further actions against everyone in Europe.

>>36687 This is from that chink-in-the-armor attack on Kiev recently? I thought those were surface-to-surface missiles, not aircraft. That makes the situation more dire since I was under the impression that the aircraft strikes are easier to trace than surface-to-surface missiles.
Belarusian man is claiming that the situation in Lysychansk is worse than previously thought for the Ukrainians, and that LNR forces already have 1/3rd of the city under their control. DPA didn't do an update today so chances are he's waiting for more information to come out. Take with a pinch of MSG, as Singaporean-man would say. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MM_wlUqbuqk

Oh right, it's possible that he's right. After all the entire argument between Zelensky and Zaluzhnyi was over whether to keep Lysychansk and Hirske as outposts to fall like Mariupol (Zelensky's decision) or whether to retreat to the Bakhmut line in order to reduce pressure on Ukrainian soldiers by creating a bottleneck (Zaluzhnyi). They were following Zelensky's plans despite Zaluzhnyi's protests, but the surrender of Hirske against direct orders not to had the Ukrainian oligarchs in a massive shit fit for various reasons (some more dark than others) and effectively forced them to half-assedly adopt Zaluzhnyi's line of defense.
>>36683 >At this point it seems like it's NATO that's shaking in their boots at the prospect of Russia doing anything At this point I don't see how anyone could have a different opinion about it since most of Europe have been basically removing all the funding they can from their militaries and the US has spent the last two years pissing off anybody who would actually want to go and fight a war and replacing anyone competent with niggers and trannies. Russia can pretty much do whatever the fuck they want and all the west can do is shoot themselves in the fucking chest and whine that Russia is being mean for not falling over and dying when they asked them to.

>>36673 >This would have every chance of starting WW3. It'd essentially spit in the face of NATO. The danger is that it's impossible to know when Russia is just going to McFucking have enough of the motherfucking NATO members on it's motherfucking border and just decide that fortune favors the bold. After all, it's impossible to nuke Russia without also irradiating all of Europe and in the event of a conventional war Europe would be the battle field. Neither of those things would really work out good for Europe and would most likely cause European NATO members that aren't perfidious retarded anglos to reassess the whole situation. Also the Lithuania-Baltic situation might cause enough of an escalation to make a NATO v Russian war happen anyway. It is not a terribly wise idea to back a nuclear armed power into a corner, especially one that in the long run seems to have less to lose than you do from launching the ICBMs than to not.

>>36658 Honestly? It changes nothing and is just acceptance of realityy. What, you think current year finland would stay neutral in any kind of scenario where nato fights russia? And Sweden is irrelevent militarilly. The only thing this changes is most likely sweden and finland losing native arms industry in favor of burgerlands, in long term.
Man I wish I could get my hands on some of those ukrainian gib weapons they handed out to civillians earlier on. Would make the whole conflict worth it in my eyes.
>>36308 >>Confirmed that 50 Ukrainian command staff (including the guy running the official Ukrainian MOD twitter page- not their propaganda sidearm) killed in Russian missile strike What, no more “which shrooms you are on?” grade tweets? Aww. That stream of cheerful delusions was one of the few hilarious parts in this mess. >>36491 According to the last Internet poll, 100% Russians use Internet.
Apparently Youtube shills for someone or another are going around defaming DPA as a "pro-Russian" channel because he tells funny jokes and won't use Ukrainian MoD reports unless they are backed up with video evidence. Even the Military Summary folks were having a good chuckle about it today. >>36700 The ultra-propaganda channel still seems to be up and posting. It's just the primary "serious" channel that is no longer posting, or at least wasn't for a while (haven't checked).
Anybody got any further information about allegedly caputed two Cesars by the Russians? Uralvagonzavod made a shitpost and thanked French for the donation of two pieces, but haven't seen any pictures of SPG for confirmation.
>>36702 Correction. It's not a Cesars on the video, it's Pion. But my question still stands regarding the allegedly captured Cesars
>>36698 >And Sweden is irrelevent militarilly. Didn't they have the 4th largest airforce in Europe after Russia, Britain and France?
>>36704 Like he said, irrelevant.
Its a good thing that pro war journos told us that Russia would run out of missiles. They forgot Belarus had a huge stockpile of missiles that is being used now that Russia doesnot have any left. https://youtu.be/RdlWG_pfsHo

https://youtube.com/watch?v=Jha1seSQbYc DPA seems to somewhat agree with the human waves tactic speculation, and that Ukraine is launching wave tactics on Snek Island with intent to demoralize/fatigue Russian troops and use up their air defenses in preparation for an amphibian assault. If true it's likely Ukraine will take Snake Island some time in the next month. Whether they can hold it or not is an entirely different story.

>>36719 So, how much POW are we talking about this time?
>>36711 It’s hard to believe. Because I thought the point in human wave tactics is overwhelming the enemy with low grade, utterly disposable assets. I didn’t know fighter jets, their pilots, and assault UAV’s are now cheap enough to be disposable? But judging by Hohol reactions to the latest attack, which claims to have destroyed an air defense system, Ukraine wants Snake Island for the easy PR points for justifying more foreign aid, and that’s it. Its long term positional value in a naval blockade is outside of Ukraine’s thinking, I feel.
>>36720 I don't remember any POWs being taken on the Zolote-Girske cauldron, so perhaps Urinians are also going to avoid this encirclement?
>>36722 They took some prisoner, around 50ish by some accounts, they claimed to have killed off a lot more as they tried to evacuate. There are videos of UAF convoys getting hi by artillery, not sure if it's from the said pocket. We'll know soon I guess

>>36726 Not just LNR/DNR, a lot of Russians are mad about that too. Allegedly the Azovites that were exchanged are in no fighting condition though, with many missing limbs and the like.
>>36726 Some days before this new possible exchange, Chechens apparently also exchanged a notorious lesbian Azov medic for one high ranking Chechen officer. Not sure how I feel about that. It sends mixed signals. The Chechens won't say who they exactly got in the exchange either. And that is more strange to me than the exchange happening at all. Because I would think that playing up how the Chechens got the better trade is a good way to smooth tensions among the public.
>>36728 Well, maybe their justification is that they don't expect to see them on the battlefield and can always recapture them as civilians or something.

Russia tried to negotiate, France tried to negotiate, Israel tried to negotiate, Turkey tried to negotiate... When four of the biggest warmongering countries on earth (America, the UK, and China aside) try to negotiate a peace deal and the response is drinking the koolaid that was meant for the civilians and cannon fodder, committing war crimes against civilians & PoWs, and acting stoic/machismo in the face of an avoidable war, it's not hard to see why Russia would demand Ukraine's complete humiliation at this point regardless of whether they are right or wrong for invading.

>>36664 You see, fighting to not be herded into collective farms (or "tent settlements for the forest clearers") involved a very different sort of people than fighting for colour revolutions and puppet kleptocracies (as well as "gay is okay", frown of a Brezhnev's clone, or whatever fuck they can advertise now) might conceivably attract. Hence different results from the early stages on, even against an adversary who doesn’t seem all that driven. >>36668 Theoretically possible, but likely unnecessary. The end game is: 1. It's established that Uncle Sam will not come to defend his puppets (which by now is well past reasonable doubt). 2. The whole network of protectorates starts collapsing. To the internal opposition. The external attacks are likely to be counterproductive. 3. NATO does not matter any more, as due to (1) and (2) it becomes obsolete. 4. Inside USA they already talk about sedition openly, so on what exactly assets Vatican-at-Harvard can rely even by now? 5. Curtains. Exit left, pursued by bees, etc.
There are reports of Russians abandoning Snake Island again
