    NAF is f***ed.  They are getting ass kicked right now and losing territory all in the name of good will.  We know specifically once they pull back, PUkes will move in and we will be back to what we are now, but with PUkes shelling even further in Donetsk/Lugansk and nothing done.

    Yeah, they will just love that. The very people that have killed several thousand of their relatives. Stop the panick already and wait to see what happens.

    You think they will waltz in and ethnic cleanse?  Oh no, it is much easier for them to start pushing the brainwashing even more.  At the expense though, people will take it as it is a hell of a lot better than being worried that an artillery shell will land on you, while your so called compatriots that are supposed to be defending you, are hiding away and moving troops around but doing squat.  I know I would.  I think at this point, NAF has given up and people have fled, hence why no one has heard from Givi or Motorolla or the like.  Now the bombardments have increased and gone even further into Donetsk, and they have done nothing.

    Sorry, you cannot wait on these things.  One has to act or you wont have people left.  Especially people who will support you.  Because lets face it, sitting back and doing nothing for "good will", isn't going to protect you from a 100mm shell landing on you, or a 7.62 round in the head.
    Who exactly fled? Why do people immediately assume that Givi and Motorola fled or something terrible has happened to them because there's silence from them? Seriously, you are worse than the Western MSM a few months back. Creating all sorts of conspiracies about Putin and why he hadn't appeared in public for over a week.

    Because it is a very bad time to be silent. Putin needed some free time and the situation was not critical, hence it was okay.
    Not in this case.
    And naturally, we are trying to make sense of it because the official narrative is not convincing at all.

    Of course it is a bad time to be silent over this. Base is abandoned. Wonder why?

    Anyway, the only way NAF could get out of this is hopes that PUkes decide to attack and NAF is forced to defend itself. But I still think striking the artillery units whom are killing your people is a good step too.

    I agree. How good is a government if it can't protect its own citizens? Protecting your own citizens is the number one priority for any normal country.

    At this rate, how many more cities will be demilitarized by LPR/DPR leadership, only for Kiev junta to do whatever it wants with them afterwards, with no repercussions? I thought withdrawing weapons under 100mm caliber was stupid enough, but I didn't think they would actually go ahead with that.

    Whatever "cunning plan" there is to win this war this way, I'm not seeing it.

    I'll report what I said earlier:

I think the NAF are pulling back their manpower and armor from the frontlines not just to "adhere to the Minsk agreements" but to simply bait the VSU into attacking villages around Donetsk and Donetsk itself. That Ukrop infantry assault into Alexandrovka (if indeed true) basically suggests this is the strategy. This gives the NAF 2 advantages: Clearly showing that Kiev is the one who doesn't give a flying fuck about Minsk-II (political advantage) and forcing the VSU out of their fortified positions (strategic advantage).

    Molon labe Ukrops.

    Wrong, wrong, wrong.

    The junta will not attack. It will just move its artillery closer and closer to Donetsk and shell the fuck out of the city.

    This will be the consequence of the latest gesture of good will.

    It is a fact that Putin ordered NAF to pull back weapons under 100 mm 3 km back, that includes 82 mm mortars, 76 mm SPG-9, RPGs, AK assault rifles, pistols. The only weapons NAF has now are knives. Putin is more concerned about his pockets than for people's lives. dunno

    There isn't and never will be any political advantage over that.  I don't know where you are from, but here in Canada we do not hear a single word about the artillery strikes, and if pointed out this - people shut their ears and go "la la la la" to drown out the noise.  This seems to be quite evident by most european countries and US too.  Winning browny points to people whom don't matter and wont change their own system regardless of protests, is pointless entirely.

    As for strategic; well, I don't think so.  Let us see.  But I assume that over time, the civilians are going to get real tired of living day in day out, worried if an artillery shell is going to hit them on their way to work or to school.  If that is the case, then I can only assume that they will revolt at NAF entirely and that would be the end of them.

    I haven't heard a peep from Putin, so I doubt he is doing anything regarding this and letting others deal with it. NAF is not his priority or is it his concern as he is president of Russia, not Ukraine or Novorussia. But who knows. I am all the way in Canada and I don't see or hear everything going on. I am relying on this forum/thread for the info.

    Unless these locations are evacuated, that is a very dirty strategy.
    The NAF is supposed to protect people, not let them get killed.

    This "political advantage" is worthless.
    Everyone who pays even just a bit attention to the conflict knows that Kiev has violated Minsk-II all the time.
    The rest does not care.

    And no one cares about Canada. Because Canada nor the US are part of the Normandy 4. So whatever Canada thinks or doesn't think, no one gives a flying fuck about that complete retard that you guys call your PM.

    Ya know, son, you can probably count the times I've use off color language on this forum on the fingers of one hand and have a couple digits left over. However, me being a senior NCO when I was serving, and the ONLY reason I'm not up there now is I'm too busted up and old to serve in the front lines with the boys much as I want to, here's a little something for you in language you may understand.

    There's not a fucking thing preventing you from fucking leaving Canukland and highing your lazy ass to Novorissya and joining NAF to fight. Either quit your fucking bitching or get your fucking ass in gear and go fight! If you're so fucking gung ho to fight then fucking go there and fucking fight!

    Methinks I'm going to have to clean this post up in a few mikes but I'm in no mood to put up with keyboard commandos this evening.

    With all the respect in the world, i think that post is out of order.

    You are telling him to go fight, but please tell, who is he going to fight? Because from the outside it looks like NAF are being STOPPED from fighting whilst the ukies do as they please.

    If you want people to fight for you,  why dont you actually let them fight?  its hardly going to encourage them to come if alls you can offer is sitting in a bunker whilst the ukies freely shell the hell out of you.

    Now i tend to be closer to your point of view when it comes to the overall strategy, though I do feel its becoming more questionable as time goes on. But this post was out of order, dropping the f bomb and demanding he go and fight just because he is legimitately questioning the value of withdrawing your weapons and not fighting back, giving up ground to allow the enemy to walk right in is not fair.

    I actually believe there is a value in doing all of those, but the proof is in the pudding, until we see the pudding its more than reasonable that people will question it, especially when we are talking about civilians being killed on a daily basis.

    You think they will waltz in and ethnic cleanse?  Oh no, it is much easier for them to start pushing the brainwashing even more.  At the expense though, people will take it as it is a hell of a lot better than being worried that an artillery shell will land on you, while your so called compatriots that are supposed to be defending you, are hiding away and moving troops around but doing squat.  I know I would.  I think at this point, NAF has given up and people have fled, hence why no one has heard from Givi or Motorolla or the like.  Now the bombardments have increased and gone even further into Donetsk, and they have done nothing.

    Sorry, you cannot wait on these things.  One has to act or you wont have people left.  Especially people who will support you.  Because lets face it, sitting back and doing nothing for "good will", isn't going to protect you from a 100mm shell landing on you, or a 7.62 round in the head.

    I'm sure Givi and Motorola are dying to post their GPS coordinates on Facebook  Rolling Eyes

    OK, but then why stay silent especially when the info of their disappearance is being used against NAF. Especially this whole situation going on now of the useless "Good wills" and plenty of civvies dying? They could make a video of them saying something in an undisclosed area, hand the video over to someone they trust to post the info.

    Few pics from the latest shelling

    I feel for the people of Donetsk. This is not a city to live. Daily shelling by fascists. The city is sacrificed so Putin can keep selling natural gas to the EU. Capitalism these days. What can you do about it? dunno  Money tramps people.
    Honestly.

    Evacuation is precisely what the NAF have been doing this past week. Some decided to stay and I'm sure many have been adequatelly warned about the dangers of staying close to the frontlines.

    Kiev has violated the Minsk II agreements by shelling. They haven't made any assault yet which would be a political blunder on their part since it would be extremely hard for the OSCE to deny this.

    Same here in Finland. Our media is completely silent about the daily artillery strikes to Donetsk, Gorlovka and other cities. They only mention the war nowadays if Ukrainian side loses soldiers and blame Russia for breaking the Minsk agreement.

    There is zero advantage for the NAF trying to show the world that they are playing by the rules. They have the whole "international community" against them and they should not even expect fair treatment from the "international community". They will not get it. Their only task should be winning the war with all means possible. Nothing else.

    "In case of escalation in Donbas costs for Russia will go up" - Nuland. I don't think these people look at what Russia is doing not to start a war, I say f*** everything and go on the offensive and drive these thugs out. There are going to sanctions and threats no matter what happens. People are being killed and that is not a good for moral and everything else. And one more think I would also like to point that people making threats against Russia are mostly Jewish(call me an anti-Semitic, I don't give a flying f***).

    But the evidence is out that PUkes are shelling Donetsk and still, nothing is said or done.  I imagine if they did a skirmish inside Donetsk, nothing will be said about it.  Effectively, whatever Donetsk and Lugansk say, is effectively ignored by the world.

    If they are indeed withdrawing people.  That is really good of them.  What isn't good of them is allowing more territory to be taken and artillery units moving closer to shell further into the region, which those people who were evacuated, will die anyways.

    They been saying this the whole time. They said this pretty much the day it happened (I remember it quite well). So they are trying to repeat themselves over and over again. Like Hitler once said "tell a lie, a big lie, over and over again and people will believe it".

    Wasn't Givi's unit dissolved recently? He should not be worried about that.
    At this point they have a greater value as inofficial spokesmen of the NAF than as fighters.

    Actually, the disagreements we see here on the forum regarding the strategy are most likely a microcosm of what the residents of donetsk are thinking and feeling too. The effect it has on us, will be having the same on them, only greater. Think about that.

    Yes, this exactly. Russia is going to get sanctioned by US and EU up the yingyang anyway, regardless what they do. At that point, they need to declare full support for NAF And provide them whatever equipment they need.

    But they are. They are blatantly ignoring how Ukraine has been going against the Minsk II accords. I don't see Hollende and Merkel saying anything to Ukraine to stop. They seem to be pointing even more fingers at Russia. So you are wrong on this one as well.

    Last time I checked the evacuation was incomplete.
