    Stop reading western sources and learn some Russian. 😉

    And which of these shills has the username 'bayraktar1070', then?

    One of them even has the name 'Shilov'. The other's surname has the same root as the Russian word for weasel. You're right, Russian knowledge comes in handy  Cool

    Dare to dispute.
    It is still not proven, and they can share the pole position with another well known profession.
    Actually, they might be the same one, only adjusted!

    Propaganda rule number one is buy all the foreign media you can because it is money well spent...

    Do they disclose where their incomes come from?

    BTW this is an English language forum for a reason... so westerners can learn about Russia without having to learn Russian.

    Not everyone picks up languages very well or very quickly.

    ULYANOVSK, February 10. /tass/. One-time payments in the amount of 105 thousand rubles will be provided to residents of the Ulyanovsk region who will sign a contract for military service in 2023. This is stated in the text of the decree published on the website of the regional government.

    "To make a one-time payment in the amount of 105 thousand rubles to citizens of the Russian Federation who signed a contract in 2023 for military service in the units of the 72nd separate motorized rifle brigade formed in the Ulyanovsk region during a special military operation," the document says.

    The decree will also apply to citizens of the Russian Federation who live in the Ulyanovsk Region and have signed a contract in 2023 for military service in military units of the Federal Service of National Guard Troops located in the Ulyanovsk Region, as well as in military units of the Federal Service of National Guard Troops No. 3671, 5561, 5598 and 6795.

    Governor Alexey Russkikh instructed the regional government to determine the procedure and conditions for making a lump sum payment. The decree comes into force on the day following the day of its official publication.

    As explained to TASS in the administration of the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region, we are talking about citizens who have signed a contract for military service in the Simbirsk and Sviyaga battalions formed in the Ulyanovsk region, in military units of the Federal Service of National Guard Troops located in the Ulyanovsk region, as well as in military units No. 3671, 5561, 5598 and 6795.

    "Last year, the payment from the regional budget was 300 thousand rubles, but then came the decree of Russian President Vladimir Putin dated 02.11.2022 No. 787 on the payment of 195 thousand rubles from the federal budget to participants of a special military operation. This year, we will pay an additional 105 thousand rubles from the regional budget, that is, in general, the total amount of payments will also amount to 300 thousand rubles, " the source said

    High morale is easy to have as you go forward. When you storm the same fortification for the 10th time and all those with whom you started your service are torn to pieces near this damned greenery, then the morale of any unit will disappear. Moreover, the fortifications are stormed not by specially trained special forces or MTRs, but by infantry. Infantry is mobilized. Half of them just drank at the training ground and did nothing, the other half were taught to simply handle weapons and sent into battle. Some, however, have now begun to be taught, although they have been in the army for half a year.

    After mobilization, they created a bunch of artillery regiments without artillery and some kind of battalions. They carried out an ideological sabotage with people: they said that they would not be sent to the front line, but they would serve on the "second and third lines." When they did get to the front, they experienced a culture shock. It turns out that it will be necessary to fight, which means going to the assault. There is no one else to go on the assault. The personnel units of the Corps ended a long time ago. The mobilized in the LDNR have already ended, but the war has not ended. Orenburg, Perm, Irkutsk, etc. will have to go into battle. peasants. Not everyone has a motive.

    I said the first reason for the lack of motive at the very beginning: an assault, which means that someone will definitely be killed or injured, but there may not be a result. (Each of us reads, listens to the year of the summary of the assault on Avdiivka and Maryinka, for example, and understands this). In the Great Patriotic War, this issue was resolved by detachments, tribunals, etc., because no matter how you train the personnel, an assault is ALWAYS killed and wounded. (Do not tell me about the harsh Stalin and his order, but just try to calculate how many people ruined at least Marshal Konev).

    Yes, and what can be taught to people if, after storming enemy positions, enemy artillery simply throws you. We have nothing to suppress, except for the VERY scarce Lancet, which means we will need new mobilized ...

    In addition to the military and military-technical component, in order to successfully complete this war, we need to decide whether this is necessary at all? Why these sacrifices? How a person will literally go to a mortal battle, knowing that in the rear, not for everyone, he is now accomplishing a feat. Knowing that some Leybin ("Russian reporter") demands to recognize the crimes of the Russian army. Millionaire bloggers operate in the rear, each issue telling how Russia unleashed an unjust war in Ukraine, degenerates from RUDN University hang out an enemy trident, and in some other institute they can hunt a guy or a girl for supporting the SVO. How to go into battle when the son-in-law of the Minister of Defense shows a disregard for what is happening in all his social networks. Okay, grain and ammonia deals... Somewhere we shove ammonia, somewhere they sell us the necessary parts for rockets. Somewhere we sell gas, but they don’t blow up the South or some other stream. We will not get into this issue - there is such an equation with a bunch of unknown denominators and, as I said, it is not clear who will be worse off if we cross some "red lines", but society must be mobilized. And any filthy mouth that stinks about "the crimes of the Russian army", "aggression" must be shut up. Not just a phrase about an inogen at the beginning of the video, but a criminal case.

    You can’t send soldiers to death with one hand, and feed those who betray it with the other.

    “Every kingdom divided against itself will be desolate, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25

    Vladlen says russian most mobilized dont get serious refresher training, are lied to that they'll be defending in the 2nd and 3rd lines, and are then sent to assault.

    He believes russian counterbattery fire is nonexistent, which leads to places like marinka and ugledar never being taken.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin assigned the name of Guards to two formations of the Russian Armed Forces.

    The honorary name was given to the 71st anti-aircraft missile brigade, which can be read on the legal information portal.

    The 266th Separate Attack Aviation Regiment also became Guards, which also has a corresponding entry on the portal.

    As stated in the text of the presidential decrees, the honorary name of the guards units was given for mass heroism, courage, fortitude and courage shown by personnel in combat operations to protect the Fatherland and state interests in armed conflicts.

    Stock pile of 152mm rounds from Soviet era is around 1.5 million of tones~35 000 000 rounds and they produced around 4 million from 2014-2022. Now they can make 1.5-1.7 million per year...

    EU can produced maybe at best 600 000 per year rounds of 155mm...So Russia can fight with their old stock piles almost 3 years with no new made rounds for 152mm artilery rounds.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded the 200th separate motorized rifle Brigade of Pechenga the honorary name "Guards". This became known on April 27 from the decree of the head of state.

    "Assign the 200th separate motorized rifle Pechenga Order of Kutuzov brigade the honorary name "Guards" and henceforth call it: 200th separate Guards motorized rifle Pechenga Order of Kutuzov brigade, " the document says on the official information portal.

    The honorary title was awarded for "mass heroism and bravery, fortitude and courage", which the military showed in combat operations "to protect the Fatherland and state interests in armed conflicts".

    The decree comes into force from the date of signing.

    On the same day, the 16th Army Aviation Brigade was awarded the honorary title of "Guards".

    Before that, on March 31, Putin signed a decree awarding the second mixed aviation regiment of the Order of Suvorov the honorary title "guards". A similar rank was awarded to the 236th Artillery Brigade.

    Videos of a captured BMP-2 and a recaptured BMP-1 basurmanin. While its awesome that this IFV was recaptured, the buffoon from zvezda is very careful not to admit that the ukrainians managed to capture this vehicle. Instead, he implies its a ukrainian field modification, quite dismissively, as if its a sign of primitivity jocolor jocolor jocolor jocolor jocolor jocolor jocolor

    Whats also hilarious is that he says the basurmanin is a field mod with a BTR-82 turret, which is retarded because he expects viewers to assume the ukraine didnt capture BTR-82s, and because the BMP-1 basurmanin was presented a few years back as an official factory modification by the russian MIC. This is why you never trust zvezdas BS

    Laugh all you want but its even funnier that the humble Russian 30x165mm caliber is so threatening to NATO IFVs and medium weight vehicles in general that the classification is now obsolete. NATO IFVs like the Puma are all 40 ton monstrosities in combat configuration just because the Russians finally introduced a proper APFSDS shell for their 30 mm guns...

    Distinguish friend from foe. What is known about the new speech recognition system for the army

    Military historian Knutov: development of the "Friend-foe" system is extremely important for the Russian army
    RIA Novosti
    Read 360tv in

    The new "Friend-foe" recognition system will help Russian troops recognize the enemy, including enemy drones. Signals from infrared sensors will be read by a special system that is extremely difficult to hack. On some parts of the front, the novelty may arrive quite soon, but for mass use it will take another five to six months.
    The army will receive the "Friend-foe" system

    Russian scientists have developed a special identification system. It will allow the military during the battle to increase the coherence of actions and quickly identify not only opponents, but also their drones, the Telegram channel Mash reported.

    The new "Friend-foe" complex is a cartridge that has an infrared tag sewn into it. It can be inserted into the helmet or armor of soldiers. A stationary device under the operator's control will read the beacon signal.

    In addition, the new system will allow fighters to exchange short messages. The developers claim that the signals will go as encrypted as possible and it is almost impossible to crack them.

    The "Friend-foe" story

    The need to develop such a complex became obvious in the Second World War: losses from "friendly fire" in the US and British troops amounted to 20-25%. These countries were the first to develop an identification system.

    The USSR took advantage of the fact that each branch of the armed forces had its own frequencies and codes, but in 1955 the Soviet army also had the Silicon-2 system. However, it was quite vulnerable and easily detected by radio intelligence.

    Modernization took a long time: accidents and enemies intercepting the secrets of Soviet scientists interfered. Only in 1977, the state tests of the Password system were completed. Its authors received the Lenin Prize.

    Six years ago, Russian specialists created another "Friend-foe" device — the "Eye". It allowed commanders to determine the location of their fighters unnoticed by the enemy, and also secretly, without going on the radio, give commands in Morse code, Izvestia wrote.

    In addition, two years ago, the Display design bureau created helmet-mounted display systems. These tactical glasses helped to distinguish their own from the enemy, quickly showed information about the terrain and the opponent, and also protected the eyes of the fighter.
    RIA Novosti
    Why do you need the "Friend-foe" system?

    Retired Colonel Anatoly Matviychuk, in a conversation with 360, stressed the relevance of the new development. It is especially important for identifying drones: after all, both your own drones and enemy ones can hover over positions.

    Imagine: a soldier is sitting in a trench, and a drone is spinning from above. Whose is it? In whose favor does it conduct intelligence? Is he going to attack? You need to know if this is your UAV or if it needs to be shot down immediately. The new system will be able to solve this problem.

    Matviychuk noted that during military conflicts, new products in the army appear in a fairly short time. When the Soviet contingent was in Afghanistan, new developments for the military were introduced within a maximum of one and a half weeks.

    The system must be reliable

    Yuri Knutov, a military historian and director of the Air Defense Forces Museum in the village of Zarya, Balashikha district, said that the Russian army already has various variants of the "Friend-foe" identification system.

    The development of the "Friend-foe" system is extremely important. The main thing is that it is reliable and well encrypted. Otherwise, the enemy can easily pick up easy keys and easily overcome the air defense system and other defenses under the guise of their own, and end up in the rear of our troops.

    Yuri Knutov

    For old models of armored vehicles and military equipment of the old model, up to "Ratnik", it is not possible to use identification systems, said the source of "360". Therefore, they are distinguished only by visual signs (colored ribbons) or symbols.

    Terms of introduction to the army

    Roman Nasonov, a member of the Rosgvardiya Constitutional Court and a veteran of military operations, noted that the current development cannot be called a novelty in the full sense: such a principle of identification of aircraft, ships and other objects has existed for quite a long time.

    "We are talking about some kind of modernization of this feature, which is extremely important and can exclude the possibility of hitting your object from your car. This system will not make it possible to fire a salvo or a shot, " Nasonov explained.

    According to the expert, interference with the enemy identification system is extremely unlikely. Constantly changing frequencies and other parameters will eliminate the possibility of hacking or logging in under someone else's name by 99.9%.

    The speed of implementation depends on the degree of need to address this issue. But the system still needs to be tested in the army: teach the crews to use it, teach the system (exactly the system!) recognize it and reconfigure it correctly.

    Roman Nasonov

    Nasonov suggested that in general, the new recognition system will be implemented no earlier than next year. However, it is possible that it can be quickly and easily installed on individual armored objects by modifying the existing equipment there.

    The regiment received the honorary name for mass heroism and courage, fortitude and courage shown in combat operations. The order of the Russian President came into force today, May 17.

    Russia to form two military districts and two armies in 2023


    Colonel-General Yevgeny Burdinsky, head of the Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, said that five divisions and 26 brigades would also be formed.

    MOSCOW, June 2. /TASS/. Two military districts - Moscow and Leningrad, combined arms and air armies, as well as five divisions and 26 brigades will be formed this year, said Colonel General Yevgeny Burdinsky, head of the Main Organizational and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces.

    "In 2023, it is necessary to timely provide organizational and staffing support for the formation of combined arms and air armies, an army corps, the Azov naval region, 5 divisions and 26 brigades, the creation of the Moscow and Leningrad military districts," he said in an article in the information-analytical and methodological magazine of the Ministry of Defense "Military Commissariats of Russia".

    Burdinsky noted that the main task this year is "the selection of citizens for military service under the contract, including in nominal units, as well as the implementation of the norm for conscripting citizens into military service." In addition, as part of improving the preparation of military commissariats "for the mobilization of human and transport resources in various conditions of the situation - taking into account the experience of partial mobilization," 863 events of various levels and scales are planned, he said.

    The need to create in 2023 two interspecific strategic territorial associations of the armed forces - the Moscow and Leningrad military districts, was announced in December last year by Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. He noted that such actions were caused by "NATO's desire to build up military potential near the Russian borders, as well as to expand the North Atlantic Alliance at the expense of Finland and Sweden." Shoigu also pointed out the need to improve the composition and structure of the services of the RF Armed Forces.
