    As Garry said, it worked well in 2008 for Georgia, right?

    But the Ami got what he wanted back then. Cooperation between EU and Russia was put on hold. This time there are already "sanctions" in place, but nobody in the EU wants them anymore. A little war could change that. You know? "The evil russians attacking poor little Ukraine under the cover ot the world Cup".

    My solution for the so called "Ukraine crisis" was from the start: ask the people of each region, what they want. If the people in Odessa want to join Russia, let them. If the people in Lviv want to join NAZO, let them.

    Correction you must first kill the nazis so that you can ask the people.

    Then if they want to join Russia let them if they don't kill them.

    Remember this rhetoric "смерть фашистам"? The ukrops need some good old Stalin/Khruschev era re-education by tank assualt.

    Seems the people at Fort Russ had some problems and could not get my reports published until now

    Here's my latest piece, though it's not mine, just a revised translation with some editing of a Russian article.

    Great reporting there, nowhere else can what you write about be read.

    Tiny comment on your use of English. When you use the word 'bombing' it should actually in virtually all cases be 'shelling'. Shelling comes from barrels, bombing only comes from aircraft.

    Fascinating, keep it coming.

    i still think the attack will come from Kherson Oblast on Crimea and not on Donbass ... Ukraine will want a direct response from Russia and they won't get it from attacking Donbass

    I doubt in this. Where could Ukraine get the needed army to attack Crimea? Only if they take their army from Donbass as practicaly whole Ukrainian army is there. They could not take army from Donbas, because in that case Novorussian army will very quickly destroy remaining units and liberate whole Donbass and maybe even other regions. Porky also know, that with attack on Crimea, russian cruise missiles will fall in his office in Kiev.

    There is that. There is also the possibility of mass defections cause they (Ukies) know they cannot stand up against Russian forces and or they may just flee anyways, much like Georgians did during the 2008 conflict after they weren't getting anywhere.

    There really isn't anywhere Ukies can go and do. All they can really do is attempt to attack Donbass/Lugansk but face heavy losses and possible loss of terrain after getting some gains. They could also maybe do indeed break through and take some more land from Donbass, but of course at heavy losses. All depends too on what Russia's reaction would be.

    last year their were loads of videos of artillery, tanks, self propelled guns, troops apcs, grads, uragans, smerch, S300s and EW vechiles all headed or arrived at kherson oblast i have yet to see a video of them leaving Kherson

    dozens of Akatsiyas laid in fields next to the rail road, with dozens more Gvozdikas and MSTA-S and scores of grads and Uragans and dozens of MT-LBs with D-30s

    We were at Balaklava today, 100 Year Anniversary of Border Control. Amongst other things we are Red Army, and we were supposed to help with the visiting civilians but it didn't work out that way. Somehow, an old foreign man arriving with Red Army, blinding white/pitch black summer dress 1943 Navy uniform, caused a bit of a stir. We are nobody but got dragged out, forced to take guided tours of the two large ships in harbor, then shown some interesting goodies on wheels and tracks. Suffice it to say this, and don't ask for photos, I can't, and if I could won't, post them.

    However, here's She and me sitting in what looks like a standard GAZ SUV, nothing particularly unusual or noticeable about it except for the standard blacked out side and rear windows, and we're watching the workers at the new TPP 6 klicks away. Up close and personal and in detail. The Lutanant showing us how to do the basic ops of the system said it has a range of about XXX klicks on level ground. What this means is for instance an orc north of the border, flat lands, can't take a piss behind a barn in a howling blizzard at midnight without these boys seeing how short his dick is and the trajectory of his stream, or lack thereof. Every single item in and on that SUV is made in Russia. Everything. Quality is top grade, never seen better, and assembly is a work of art. If you think a couple of these little stinkers are not sitting on the lines up north in Novorossiya, I've got some beach front land in the Gobi Desert to sell to you, great price and the water is clean and clear.

    I figured this out after looking at a rail map. The freight rail line runs through Kherson to the terminus station at Volnovakha on the southern front of Donbass.

    It's more convenient for them to move materiel and troops through this line straight to the south front rather than going from Kharkov via Slavyansk , or from Dnipropetrovsk to the rail fork a little west of Avdeyevka

    The Ukrops probably have little to nothing in the Crimea direction though they still keep some forces deployed at Transcarpathia and a pretorian guard at Kiev.

    I know that, nitpicking here, mortars also lob bombs. I haven't the time to retype things twice, so I just run the original text in Spanish through the automatic translator and then I edit fixing errors. That one escaped my attention. I rushed to get these done as quickly as possible only for the Fort Russ team to experience a lot of trouble wich delayed publishing.



    I will keep reporting as soon as I know something new, seems the front has quieted down.
