    Tank units of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine in #Donbass are urgently completing the T-72AMT and T-64BV.

    In March of this year, repair enterprises of Ukraine delivered 25 tanks to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. So, at the beginning of the month, 6 T-72AMTs were transferred to Kiev.

    Note how Banderastan still is not building new tanks but fixing up junkers. For a country supposedly with over 40 million people
    and which had the Kharkov tank factory, that is quite the non-achievement.

    All their technological and engineering capability was nothing more than a astronomical Russian economic and scientific liquidity injection. Take the Russians out the formula and their capability was exposed to being nothing more than a kabuki theatre.

    3)should have developed russia in a totally different way ,a modern high tech economy ,that directly counter US silicon valley top tech industries.


    Sigh. The mods have a tough job. Anyway..

    How about Yandex ? The biggest tech start-up in Europe by market cap and 5th biggest search engine in the world ?

    How about Kasperski antivirus ?

    As of 2016, the software has about 400 million users and has the largest market-share of cybersecurity software vendors in Europe. Kaspersky Lab ranks fourth in the global ranking of antivirus vendors by revenue.[6] It was the first Russian company to be included into the rating of the world's leading software companies, called the Software Top 100 (79th on the list, as of 6/29/2012). Kaspersky Lab is ranked 4th in Endpoint Security segment according to IDC data for 2010.[7] According to Gartner, Kaspersky Lab is currently the third largest vendor of consumer IT security software worldwide and the fifth largest vendor of Enterprise Endpoint Protection.]

    And then there's Nginx

    According to Netcraft's November 2016 Web Server Survey,[16] Nginx was the second-most widely used web server across all "active" sites (18 percent of surveyed sites) and for the top million busiest sites (28 percent of surveyed sites).
    As of January 2021, Netcraft estimated that Apache served 24.63% of the million busiest websites, while Nginx served 23.21% and Microsoft is in third place at 6.85% (for some of Netcraft's other stats Nginx is ahead of Apache),[14] while according to W3Techs, Apache is ranked first at 35.0% and Nginx second at 33.0% and Cloudflare Server third at 17.3%.[15]

    And then there's Telegram. I know this is off topic but you brought it up. It just shows your total lack of credibility on everything else.

    It looks like the Russian military is getting their 'Just in case' plan in place.

    Reports that all their Black Sea fleet of Kilos are now at sea. Also, perhaps to head off any 'by coincidence' Turkish/US action in Syria, increasing numbers of aircraft, both attack and transport, have headed into Hmeimen over the last week or two.

    One of the first cultural things they did after the coup in 2014 was send an all gay American quire to sing in Keiv.

    They should keep this up. The next generation of Ukrainians probably aren't too impressed with this.

    Turkey is really helping Ukraine, two transport belonging to UAE, landed in Turkey, they were loaded with military stuff and than they headed to Ukraine.

    I put this in the USN thread

    Very interesting move.

    This is a ship of the CVN 69 carrier fleet currently in the Eastern Med. This action extends the carrier's protection or projection out into the Black Sea. A notable point is that hey have chosen to move a cruiser not the more normal destroyer into the Black Sea.

    Why the #Ukrainian project of converting 2S1 ACS into an infantry fighting vehicle is doomed to failure  In #Ukraine, it was proposed to convert part of outdated 2S1 Gvozdika self-propelled artillery mounts into infantry fighting vehicles called Kevlar-E.

    They are just posturing, the idiots. They first need to grow the balls to attack, then to pose any real threat, then to escalate it until becoming a real existential threat to LDPR, then to convince Putin they cannot be handled by means of asymmetric measures or covert help for the Donbass (this may take very long actually) and then, only then, would Russia be involved. At that point, situation would be so critical, that Ukraine should better say goodbye to the southern oblasts and say hello to Novorussia.

    As for the Turks, they are second to none in posturing, to the point they can share the central stage at the circus with the ukie clowns. If they are indeed arming them, it can only mean:

    > They are genuine suckers being ripped off
    > Ukraine is actually paying, thus making their agony as a country shorter
    > US is paying, and thus shooting themselves in the foot too

    Flying planes is very easy, but I am still to be convinced that any of the foreign powers involved is so stupid to keep funnelling their money into the pockets of the little Ukrainian scammers. US is arming them with things like rubber boats, UK dismantles their shipbuilding to sell them rubbish patrol boats etc. Nobody gives a shit about them, that is the reality. All the ukies are allowed to do is to give it all and sacrifice themselves for their masters like good slaves do.

    Americans think that sending a couple of tubs to the Black Sea will frighten Russia and force it to throw NR under the bus.
    Washington deciders are truly decoupled from reality. These tubs can only observe as the Khuyiv regime forces are
    handled by the NR forces with Russian support.

    I am not really sure Russia would even need to do very much... the locals seem motivated and skilled, while the aggressors are funded and supported by the west but I am not so sure they really know what they are doing.

    The fact that they are shelling and bombing fellow Ukrainians because those Ukrainians don't want to stop speaking Russian is interesting... it would be like the US National guard shelling areas of the southern US states because they insist on speaking languages other than English...

    There's not much strategic depth and if the hohol hordes manage to get within the urban centres the Novorossiyans would be heavily constrained in their response. Unlike the hohols, the Novorossiyans actually care about their own civilians, and would hestitate when faced with human shields. Its up to Russia to deliver the decisive blow before even a single Ukrainian boot even so much as sullies the soil of Donbass.

    The presence increases. Not good I'd say.

    Note that they are now controlling aircraft from the carrier over the Black Sea using the radar etc systems on the cruiser. Now with a frigate protecting it. Interesting with the carrier off Crete.

    I can't remember this happening before. If it hasn't the Russians will inevitably regard it as a major provocation. You can almost see the targeting computers being reprogrammed as the US deploys an interesting training target.

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 P.M.) – The US aircraft carrier, USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, arrived at the Marathi naval base on the coast of the Greek island of Crete on Saturday morning, the Greek newspaper Ekathimerini reported.

    The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier approached berth K14 on the island’s northwest coast, with the help of four tugboats, around 11 A.M. local time.

    “This port visit demonstrates the unique capabilities that SUDA provides to support the US presence in the strategically dynamic eastern Mediterranean region,” US Ambassador to Greece Geoffrey Peat said on Twitter.

    According to press reports, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis is expected to visit the US tanker next Tuesday.
