    I guess it's 100% confirmed, Kharkiv is under Russian control, Ukrainian soldiers are fleeing Odessa en mass

    If this op with the Turkish planes disguise is true, we are watching military history.
    It sounds to ballsy to be true, but i really hope it is.

    Not necessarily ...

    It could be just pro russian citizens , placing a russian flag in the building .
    The lack of information of where is russian army , whether is full invasion or just dombass
    could create mass defection withing the kiev military.. The ukrainian pilots are even defecting
    to romania. Shows how low is the morale of the ukie military..

    my bet is , if Russia wanted it , it could take all of kiev in a matter of just 48 hours.
    with the forces they already had in crimea only. but the problem is that those that conquer a big land , later need to feed thousands and millions of brainwashed people there , that hates either way , no matter what you do. So it will just make incredibly expensive for russia to feed and pay the pensions of 30 millions of new citizens ,that were not previously in the russian budget..

    i think this is what NATO was hoping , destroy and bankrupt ukraine and later force russia to invade and take care of them. The economic cost and civil protest russia will have later to deal , can create protest inside russia too ,demanding the return home of their military. and this doesn't count the road side bombs and mysteriuos nato kamikazi drones attacks that will hit russian army .

    When US invaded iraq.. most of their casualties of the US army came after they captured bagdad..
    and the casualties mostly were road side bombs or snipers that show up from nowhere and then hide.

    Turkey wouldn't be that stupid to risk it. They sent far more and got their troops vaporized. They already pissed Russia and China off already, this small contingent wouldn't last a few hours.

    It was time to end the 30 years of lies that the West was selling to Ukraine, as well as to dismantle the fascist-Nazi lobby in Ukraine.

    If Russia sticks to the scope of the operation they outlined there is no longtime occupation.
    Long time occupation would bankrupt Russia just like iraq/afghan bankrupted USA.
    Expect a Georgia style operation but on a larger scale, maybe a few weeks, to a few months. It takes time to turn over every rock to find the 400 war criminals they say they are looking for.

    Ukrainian MoD is claiming the city of Schastia has been recaptured, and that Russian forces have suffered ~50 casualties.

    Obviously unconfirmed.

    Doubt. They are passing out arms to anyone volunteering to fight in all of Ukraine now. Doubt they have won any battles or shot down any planes. Situations looks FUBAR for them.

    I'd like to think that the guys like Alexander Zakharchecko and the militia heroes like Pavlov, Bednov, Mozgovoy etc are watching from on high and are grinning from ear to ear.

    Sorry that its taken this long, but sometimes one just has to wait for justice to be delivered. Preferably served ice cold and with lashings of malice. Twisted Evil

    I've seen videos of small avionics clubs' airports getting completely destroyed... Likely all civilian, international and military airports are gone.

    Air defenses and ammo depots have been blown up as well.

    There is now an obvious calm after the huge influx of bombing. We'll see how it continues.

    That's how I understand it too. They most likely had Turkish transponders. Russian jets with Turkish transponders

    I think we are confusing what each of us are talking about. I was assuming he was saying that it's fishy in sense that turkey may be sending troops and such (which the A400 can't send that much anyway). Maybe I assumed too much.
