    NPPs are near Belarus not Russia

    Also winds blow West

    No. The average winds flow from west to east in both hemispheres in the troposphere. This is determined by the Coriolis effect and the
    latitudinal temperature gradient. Blocking events and other weather states can produce easterly flow but all the Ukr-tards have to do
    is wait a few days for them to go away.

    But of course if provoked, Russia can deprive Ukraine of their soviet infrastructure in few days and turn them officially in what they are de facto, a third world country. There are many Russia stand-off weapons systems needing to be tested in combat for best international sales prospects, if ukies want to help Rosoboronexport they know just what to do Laughing  

    I did read something about Ukronies using nuclear waste as a weapon against Russia.

    I am pretty sure Russia has been contemplating such scenarios and how to handle them for a long while, maybe the best option is that the VDV takes control of the installations, or maybe there are other ways to render them harmless, I am not very knowledgeable about the type of nuclear installations present in Ukraine. I am saying this because this is the best (or the worst if you are a normal person) they can effectively do against Russia, an Ukrainian psycho proposed already some time ago to take their nuclear waste, put it into rockets and launch it to Russia. Forced by circumstances, Western Nazis would consider it fit to screw all the Moskal-related, non-compliant population of Eastern Ukraine with no afterthought...

    EDIT: yeah magnumcromagnon, that is what I mean, the idea was already proposed

    Cute how Houthis defending themselves against mass murdering and famine bringing invaders are "terrorists".
    Did those Houthis ever commit any act of terror in Saudi Arabia before the invasion? And for that matter after?
    Attacking economic and military targets is hardly terror. And it was OK for the self-anointed guiding lights of
    humanity during WWII to bomb German civilians to pressure the Nazi regime to give up the fight. So Houthis
    are perfectly justified in attacking Saudi civilians to stop the Saudi war of aggression.

    The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine spoke about 28 tactical groups of the RF Armed Forces on their borders

    On March 30, 2021, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Ruslan Khomchak, announced that Russia was pulling its troops to the borders of Ukraine. This statement was made by the Ukrainian military leader during his speech at an extraordinary meeting of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, dedicated to the death of four servicemen in Donbas on March 26.

    The representative of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reported to the parliamentarians his vision of the situation at the front. He specified that Russia is strengthening its forces in the northern, southern and eastern directions. In his opinion, this threatens the national security of Ukraine.

    Recently, from different regions of the Russian Federation, under the guise of maintaining combat readiness and general preparation for the future joint strategic exercises "West-2021" (Russia and Belarus - ed.), The RF Armed Forces are gradually building up troops - said a member of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine in parliament.

    As of March 30, along the entire state border of Ukraine, in the temporarily occupied territories (Donbass - ed.) And in Crimea, there are 28 battalion tactical groups of the enemy. Reinforcements are expected, plus another 25 BTGs - added Khomchak.

    As for the fallen soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Khomchak told a story that is seriously different from the one that was announced before at the headquarters of the JFO. According to Khomchak, the Ukrainian military did not die because of the shelling from the DPR from mortars, grenade launchers and machine guns. Allegedly, it was a group of sappers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which conducted mine clearance near their positions and died as a result of enemy sniper fire. After that, Khomchak called on the people's deputies to condemn the "actions of Moscow" in the Donbass.

    So by my count in bordering Russian Regions are stationed the following number of BTG's plus (additional reinforced in 48 hours):

    Crimea - 5 (+3)  
    Rostov - 8 [+8]
    Voronezh - 2
    Belgorod - 4
    Kursk - 0 (+2)
    Bryansk - 4 (+2)

    In addition there are 4 brigades and 2 regiments in Donetsk plus 3 brigades and 1 regiment in Luhansk of very professional LDNR troops.

    The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted a resolution on the statement regarding the escalation of the Russia-Ukraine armed conflict, which demands Russia to immediately stop hostilities and completely fulfill its international obligations.

    The Verkhovna Rada also adopted a law on the reform of military commissariats, allowing Ukraine's President to mobilize reservists without declaring full mobilization.

    Still with the BS about Russian forces in the Donbass and Russia being one of the obligated members of the Minsk Agreement.

    There's been an increased amount of military activity these past few days.

    It seems that Ukrainian convoys more or less stopped (they were daily two weeks ago). Russia has been moving a lot of gear for exercises to the borders of Ukraine. Quite a lot of Russian strategic aircraft have been in the air this week; even the US complained (though they complain about pretty much everything at this point)

    In addition to all of this, the frequent contacts between US and Russian mil. are quite alarming. I guess we are in the talk phase and if that fails it'll start to lit up.
