    Flags in colors of Russia and Chechen republic have been raised in Kiev area. Allegedly in Gostomel. Kievan flag can be seen on ground.

    edit: Kadyrov states Chechen team has secured a base formerly belonging to Kievan forces.

    Not much. It is not a commercial bank and the reserve fund is not loans. Any attempt to prevent Russia from using its euros will
    result in a quick disconnection from SWIFT and the ensuing detonation of energy and vital raw material prices. NATzO will fall into
    a depression and not merely a mild recession.

    Not the best of news but it has to be delivered.

    https://www.rt.com/business/550705-china-banks-restrict-russia-finance/

    The Chinese will have their time in Taiwan don't worry. The empire is merely trying to cripple Russia just to move on full time on them, and it won't be pretty. Folks are delusional if they think Taiwan will flip to mainland control. That's not how elites with sovereign relinquish power. It's as more often than not, taken, by force or coercion. And the empire will make sure it's the worst possible one.

    And the Japanese, well good luck with that.

    China is alone, very alone. With that said, Russia will back them up when time comes, to a limit (predicated on China's support now, and we're quickly finding out what those limits are).

    The more he wait the more he is traped. Soft war tactics are coming to an end. Russia will relly more and more on heavy artillery.

    I also read somewhere they use only 30% of their force they have around Ukraine until yesterday. Now that they have fixed Ukrainians they will send reinforcement and push through ukrainians with heavy fire.

    Video of logistics convoy destroyed near Kharkov emerged on Reddit, seems it's been snowing. At least 20 trucks and vans burned. Apparently it was destroyed yesterday but filmed today.

    Can anybody explain to me why a dozen Kaliber missiles have not landed on Zelensky's head already?

    I must say I am disappointed with the way Russians have conducted this operation. Its taking way too long, they should have taken Kiev within the first 24 hours. Instead they are giving Zelensky ample time to post dozens of videos and tweets and he is fast turning into somekind of war hero globally.

    That's some moves to overcome sanctions. That won't affect their relations. Western companies will do everything to overcome the sanctions too like creating offshore companies, actually they already have them.

    Banking system is pretty closed and it's hard to know what going on in it. And the poeple controling it are more interested by money than dead ukrainians. No raw materials is a nightmare for them.

    Sanctions are a joke.

    i know i propably do not have to say this, but....
    Make sure any footage you see out there about this conflict you find interresting, and you can save it.

    Then save it, when things get clear that it is over, and the media can not milk it they will delete anything they can that goes against the NATO/Western Narrative.

    https://www.rt.com/russia/550707-russia-ship-detained-france/

    A Russian cargo ship has been intercepted in the English Channel by French authorities on suspicion of violating EU sanctions imposed following Moscow’s military offensive in Ukraine.

    The vessel, which departed from Rouen, was transporting cars to St. Petersburg when it was redirected to the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer in northern France in the early hours of Saturday morning.

    The press office for the Maritime Prefecture of the Channel confirmed to the media that the ship was “strongly suspected of being linked to Russian interests targeted by the sanctions.

    As I've said. The French/Germans and their EU project see the Eurasian Economic Union and Union State as mortal enemies. They're trying to kill it before it ever gets a chance to bloom. That's why, behind all the good cop/bad cop bullshit, the EU topdogs supported the Maidan coup, and were in the bidding rivalry with Russia by offering the EU association agreement carrot and other goodies in the tune of billions. They didn't want Ukraine as a potential Union State candidate, or as they call it, a new USSR under a new name.

    They've been playing an elaborate good cop, bad cop game along with the anglo-saxons on Russia for decades while Russia accepted strategic retreat after retreat.

    That's what all these negotiations with Macron etc were all about up to the last hour. A big fat deceitful game where the Kremlin got to accept the fate of Ukraine as is, which in a few years would become the point of no return, with Russia unable to prevent it from becoming part of NATO.

    Russia's choice was simple. Capitulate peacefully into slow non-existence as was projected or face ruin.

    It's on.

    Just one question I noticed.

    The Donbass war was fought without aviation as soon as the few Ukrainian attack planes were shot down, but now, where is the Russian air force?

    Aren't helicopters and shturmoviks flying missoins in support of the breakthrough in Donbass front?

    why aren't interdiction strikes on Ukrainian columns moving around? I think some of it has been seen already.

    I guess they were just in the phase of suppresion of air defenses and now they will move to ground support missions.

    Or perhaps don't want to use the full firepower yet to give the ukrop soldiers a chance to surrender and avoid unneccessary casualties.

    Probably that's why we haven't yet seen the heavy artillery, the Pion, the Tyulpand and the Buratino .. though probably some of that has been used in the breakthrough of the Ukrop lines in Donbass.

    Russians taking too many loses. Not looking good. This was a bad decision by Russian mod. Hopefully they pull through but heavy heavy losses expected and now Russia is basically like a big North Korea completely isolated. Not looking good. Odds of nuclear war are extremely high.

    You answered your own question. But now that ukrainian aren't surrendering and that russians are sustain casualties they will increase the use of artillery and aviation. They will also send in armed drones. I've already seen an alleged video of drone use.

    I'm not sure what's happening, many Russian columns have been ambushed seems there are almost no deeper aviation strikes by Russia except few last night...

    I expectes at least 20ish Kalibrs a day to strike important facilities or Ukrainian groupings. Also it's quite weird there is not a single video of Russian drone of any kind being used, except that one where BTR4 gets hit my something.

    I think the main problem is that the MOD thought this was 2014 and the Ukr army would fold over like a pancake, so they reduced air power use to the minimum (I guess to minimize civ losses?). That chance was lost 8 years ago, now we're paying the price. 8 years of building up a loyal radicalized army and brainwashing people has paid off.

    Also it seems like our old foe, effective communication is still there. Most of the columns that were ambushed seem to be rear troops (rosgvardiya, engineers, etc), the spearhead move forward and nobody knows where there's still Ukrainian troops in the rear.

    I'm quite disappointed with how the MOD has been handling the info war, messaging should be more frequent and the whole "no losses" thing is impossible in this day and age.

    Overall you can definitely see how the army has changed from 08, and even 15, but there's clearly things to note for the future.

    Also yeah, it's sad to see so many losses.

    He is more valuable alive. If he is topped its odds on it will be the Americans when he has ceased to be useful to them, or steps outside his instructions.

    Zelensky will only leave Kiev when the US tells him to. Maybe the risk of him getting captured, so out of US control, in Kiev got too great and he was moved.

    There are apparently 20,000+ US citizens, abandoned by the US to their fate, still in Ukraine and private chartered planes (shades of Afghanistan) are being deployed to get them out. Not sure which airfield. The TV cameras are sure to be there.

    This war will escalate if this dog isn't put down much faster, they have escalated this conflict to the highest level

    Kremlin has to understand that this could spread into a global war without adequate response to the aggressor
