    5 mins till bombardment if the gen is true. Reports of strategic bombers heading out too.

    They won't bomb civilians with strateic bobers...

    Anyway if they are around Kiyv does that mean the VDV at the airport got help ?

    To be honest, I feel sorry even for them.

    I don't.  I feel sorry for Donbass civilians who have paid a horrendous butchers bill from the ceaseless aggression from Ukro forces, spearheaded by racist Russophobe ultranationalists like Azov.

    Any decent military professional wouldn't have served in such a force.

    We didn't accept the defense of "just doing my duty" when it came to Nuremberg.  I don't think East Ukrainians will accept it from "ATO" senior personnel when they are eventually called to account for their actions in a court of law.

    They have all been poisoned against each other

    We must remove the poison. It's the only way. Declare amnesty. The Ukrainian regime never declared amnesty for anti-Maidanists, or the rebels, or its political opponents. But it must be done for everyone. Apart from the ones whose crimes can be proven.

    You can use the process of logical deduction here. If Russia has succeeded in capturing that airport a large military force would already be in Kiev and the Russians would be fucking Ukrainian soldiers wives. So far it hasn’t happened. The airport assault failed.

    If all you got to whinge about is this one airport still, while the 2nd biggest country in Europe is being invaded, then the operation must be going quite well.

    I thought I'd have to log into The Drive to get some Nato swine agitprop but it looks like there's plenty of it here. dunno

    Anyone has any real info on what happened with 45s landing party at the airport? If it's true they were destroyed it's huge loss, it's the elite of VDV wiped out for nothing.

    Rumours of Chechens fighting for the Ukrainian side while Kadirov sends his mercernaries to fight alongside Russian troops.

    In first Chechen war you had Ukrainian volunteers fighting for the Chechens. A lot of Chechens felt the need to repay Ukraine.

    So if we weigh the operation from that POV it's not a bad performance

    Americans didnt face s300 either, but s125 and s200, so Russians are doing very well, this is a good measure of the military progress and a good totem for Russia

    Russia not only has to avoid civilian casualties, but Ukrainian military casualties, when possible

    It's incredibly difficult. Russia can't use military force liberally.

    What's the difference, civilians will die anyway and Russia is booed by the whole world like they are targetting civilians anyway. Half-handed efforts yield half-handed results. Ukrainian military is not giving up in droves as expected and fighting is fierce. They either need full decimation or there's no point to engage them at all.

    I used to consider our rulers of having neither courage, nor imagination. Well they have courage, but still no imagination.

    I would have preferred that US/NATO and their EU cucks didn't engineer a violent overthrow of the democratically elected government and President in 2014 using Ultra-nationalists and UkroNazi thugs.

    I would have preferred that US/NATO and their EU cucks didn't do an about face as soon as the putsch was complete and turn a blind eye to the coup regime turning its guns onto the counter-move in the East and South as teh legitimate governments' supporters began to organize following the coup. Whatever happened to "no violence"????

    I would have preferred that US/NATO and their EU cucks didn't support the putschists in their so-called "Anti-Terrorist Operation" - basically a code word to kilkling anyone who resists the "new management".

    I would have preferred that US/NATO and their EU cucks didn't support the putschists as they instituted blatant discrimination against Ukraine Russian-speakers, denying Russian language an official status, shutting down their media, harassing opposition politicians. You know, all the things taht so-called "Democracies" are supposed to value and protect???

    I would have preferred that US/NATO and their EU cucks had actually listened to Russians over the last 7 years and not torpedoed Minsk II, and had taken Russia's legitimate security concerns seriously.


    I guess neither of us got what we wanted. Suspect

    Chernobyl and the airport are 75 km's apart. Imagine reinforcements were pretty close and the 45 troops would be experts at escape & evade. Otherwise the UAF would be plastered photos all over the internet.

    The whole world is not US and EU, 

    1 billion Chinese back Russia, I realize your self importance,  but your not the center of world 

    Russia already has 2 beachheads in kherson and north of Kiev, as well as salient near kharkov 

    Donetsk also pressed the attack

    That's 4 giant salients, and Russians at kiev

    Americans and NATO took 30 days to get to Banghdad 

    So get off your horse

    Yeah about 70-80km. I thought so myself, I have friend serving in that unit that doesn't answer his social media since 2 days ago. I feel abit uneasy thinking he could have been sent to that suicide landing.

    Boris Johnson has more hairy Ottoman balls than Erdogan.

    Boris is the only leader who supports the people of Ukraine practically and he even called Putin a 'dictator' on live broadcasting.
