    Gostomel back to Ukrainian control or not? Many conflicting news about this.

    This plane was flying soldiers that were supposed to help Russian paratroopers trapped in Kiev airport.

    Plane crashed in Voronezh.

    The whole crew is dead.

    This is already a god damn disaster.

    For the Nazis in Kiev and there backers, right. They lost control of 20 - 25% of the country in less then 18 hours.

    By the way, there were more people killed in the last week in Yemen then today in Banderastan.

    The lives of 100 elite vdv troops are worth way more than a million yemeni or banderstanis. You sociopath

    Your other posts tell a different story.

    Because I criticise Russian leadership and foolishness? They fucked up the Ukraine situation so bad they had no choice but to invade. Now Russian young men are dying.

    The eternal disease of Russia, bad leadership.

    No wonder the Tsars were German. Russians are not good leaders in general.

    Looks like a cauldron type attack up the rear of the UA lines. No doubt the objective is surrender. Or to cut that road up from Mariupol.

    Said it in the past on here, the Russians will most likely take southern Ukraine Odessa right the way across to Donetsk. Making rest of Ukraine landlocked, and having land access for Crimea, and linking up with Transnistria and Gagauzia. Nice move

    How do you know it's as much as 25%?

    Impossible to know, no videos to analyse that I have seen since the CNN team video from there.

    And any statements without visual proof made by any side is at least to me to be considered as propaganda.
    Remember this war is as much about our minds as it is about ground at this point.
    Any side that can convince the other side that they are losing has a huge advantage.

    Every war has an price in blood.

    In Afghanistan,Kandahar province Alone,
    Every two weeks C-17's departed KAF airfield with the dead and injured. Aircraft's full of them.
    These are special medical evacuation models of C-17.

    20 years long of young dead an injured, for an war that eventually meanth nothing.

    What i seen so far from footage of Russian Operations, i am deeply impressed.
    And nobody can wage an war, without coming out with casualty's.

    Best you can do, is trying to limit the risks as best you can.

    --

    Also my hysterical, anti-russia national media quoted this source:
    https://ria.ru/20220224/samolet-1774908471.html

    AN-26 was carrying general cargo. and crashed because of technical failure.
    I checked the tail registry, rf-36074
    it checks out. its tail and its livery matches what planespotters photographed in the past.

    Seems the Russian air assault on the airport has failed. What a foolish attack. Just wasting the lives of their elite units.

    Whatever loses, whichever mistakes are made right now, whichever level of resistance Russia is experiencing now... this would all pale in comparison to what would be the case had Ukraine continued on its path as a anti-Russian puppet state. 2014 is behind you, grave mistake not to act with a strong hand then, the consequences of which you see today. However, it's infinitely much better to act today than to have it as a NATO state, or quasi-NATO state bulked up.

    The anglo-saxons will not relinquish their plans to destroy Russia, never. The only solution for Russia is to protect itself, and help bring about their eventual collapse through resistance, and a proactive fight. All empires collapse, all of them, without exception. They will too, maybe not in your lifetime, but eventually they will.

    Russian forces in Nikolayev and zombies reacting to it from the window. Which I can't blame them for. Again, we came as invaders. Some will welcome it, some will fight it, but most will worry one way or the other.



    We're going to keep going further into zombie-land one way or the other. I think it's possible to avoid alienating the population, and proving their propagandized expectations wrong, provided there are no civilian casualties. Whether our command has the skill for it, I don't know. I hope.
