    Confirmed only heavy casualties for phase 1/2/3.

    Ukrainians having over 80 casualties (WIA/KIA) in 2 days.

    Probably around 20/30 for NAF (but all feared critical or dead).

    no. According to sources from Novorussia mixed with people like Patrick Lancaster, very few dead NAF. Maybe 5 - 10. 20 injured though. ukrops lost roughly 100+ overall.

    I guess very few dead, maybe 5-10 ain't bad.....unless you are one of the 'very few'. Your sources stink. Our son says your figures are way off but I won't tell you which way or which side. Our daughter says the same as our son. I will tell you that we have two missing, fate unknown.

    Hospitals in Kharkov have almost 50 heavily wounded, Dnepropetrovsk not quite so many and some of the very heavily wounded are in Kiev. Many more being treated in local hospitals near the fighting on the orc side.

    I really wish I was wrong, but if the Ukrops suffer huge casualties, statistically, even if things go well for the Novorussians, they will still lose between 1/3 to 1/5 of the enemy casualties, given the scale of the fighting and the artillery involved. Sometimes there are very lopsided engagements, but don't count on them being the norm and always in favor of our side.

    This particular action got a lot of publicity, don't know why, it's not much larger than the last stunt that the ukrops tried in the same area in summer, but it obscures the fact that there's a war going on every day and every day dozens are killed and wounded.

    Regarding artillery. I can say with certainty that the volume of fire is much higher than what the official DNR reports mention. It's not single shots, but salvos or series of shots in variable number. Even the OSCE had for once, to report something of the truth, and wonder what else they are hiding

    https://dninews.com/article/osce-confirms-kiev-troops-advance-attempt-lpr-december-18

    Over a span of six hours on 18 December (while in government-controlled Svitlodarsk), the SMM heard 700 explosions assessed as 680 outgoing artillery rounds (122mm) 5-6 km and 8-10 km north-west; and 20 outgoing tank rounds 3-10 km south-west," says the text of the document.

    Cassad mentions that the OSCE clowns later counted 2,900 explosiones in the area, presumably over 2-3 days.

    Of course, nothing is mentioned in the DNR briefings, because the action took place in Lugansk sector, but there has been heavy shelling and infantry fighting all along the rest of the front.


    Also, about the casualties. Take note of the fact that hospitals are not empty. If they were, closest hospital to the frontline would have enough beds for 200 wounded. But the catch is unlike the dead, wounded remain for weeks at the hospital. So even if you just get 2 or 3 wounded a day, overtime they accumulate faster than they can be discharged. So if wounded have to be evacuated to Kharkov and some trickle down as far back as Dnipropetrovsk, it's because the frontline hospitals and those in the inmediate rearguard, such as Kramatorsk, are already crowded with wounded from previous days fighting. It goes on week after week.

    Oh boy where to start:

    -Hilary disaster and Lord Kek triumphant.

    -Tillerson as SoS. In addition to being overall not insane towards Russia he also has an axe to grind with Kiev over business deals post coup and massive slander of his name by Kiev in interim period.

    -Overall EU clusterf*ck and rise of conservatives e.g. France.

    -No money from abroad.

    -No money left in Ukraine. Porky just finalized theft of last major bank and population will be picking up the tab like JohninMK said.

    -Capacity cap exemptions for Nord Stream, Nord Stream 2 moving along, Turk Stream and approaching suspension of gas transit trough Ukraine. Only 2 more years left.

    Real question is what took them this long?

    Let's say that I trust my source a lot more than people who like to help but don't understand what they talk about. At Lozove the cordon group behind the Ukrainian push got hit dead on with ATGM's and mortar fire (Jihadi style) for at least 10 KIA, about 3 KIA were counted during the initial Ukrainian attack, with the second position being peppered with AGS fire and counting casualties, but no KIA. More people were KIA when One Ukrainian BMP-1 crossed a mined area without getting hit and opened fire at point blank range, before getting hit. Two other BMP's are still on the mine field, with more ventilation holes than normally.

    Loosing roughly an infantry company in just 48 hours. Ukropia never ceases to amaze me.

    Minefield, the defense's best friend. Also for the first time the sides held the volume of fire very high. Over 8 ATGM's fired from Ukrops, 6 from NAF. Waiting for LostArmour to confirm.

    You could very well be correct. But I trust my sources as well. There is of course miscommunication.

    Belarus was pretty well much being used heavily like Russia was to upkeep rest of the republics.

    Pretty much tells you all you need to know about why the USSR collapsed, that infographic.

    Although funny thing is that some of the biggest recipients were some of the most enthusiastic to leave the USSR. It would be like if Greece, Romania and Bulgaria lead the charge in dissolving the EU. Of course, geographic location and sensitivity to oppression of national identity did play a bigger role ultimately, which explains it.

    Actually it shows under-investment nothing more when looking at it from a soviet perspective.

    However it shows the Post Soviet Trend pretty much. Kill the USSR and you cement the under-developpement trend, let it live and transform in a kind of Post-War France and you have a chance to go up.

    I guess they picked the "Freeehduuhm" option. The rest is history.

    BTW:

    Hey Mike, don't get worked up about that. Here we are to share info, at least some, and I welcome your posts. Just don't rely too much on internet sources. Many times they just repeat what someone else wrote and there's a lot of redundancy.

    There's no substitute to thinking for yourself and asking questions. If you read my blog entries (I have some of the stuff published in english) you will get a good feeling of what the war is like and why the official reports from either side deliberately minimize the scale of the fighting and the casualties. I know our side routinely gives a trashing to the Ukros, but every day we lose brave men with no end in sight. I just wish the Ukrops got over with and attacked and the bloodbath would be quick and end the misery once and for all.

    Guys why do the Ukrainians put their losses so low? Is there any evidence of them suffering the heavy casualties that the DNR said they have inflicted?
