    If Kiev damaged Russian Il-76 then Russia takes the Kievan Il-76.

    Well, I don't know what equipment Kiev has left but anyway. They won't need military.

    Reports I read said possibly. S400 less then 50 kms away so questions if correct.

    Where 50km away ? You protect air bases when the enemy has ymballistic missiles. You don't park your S-400 in the middle of nowhere.

    They aren't facing NATO...

    And the tor/pantsir need to protect those supply lines that were attacked by TB2, not send to far and given to the enemy. Now they could end up in USA.

    Next to nothing. Nabiullina apparently used some to intervene on the forex markets. But this was a temporary action since
    the CBR no longer does this after 2014. The Russian government has spent precisely zero of the CBR reserves.

    I believe it has a branch going there already. But the terminus should be moved there as well.

    I agree.

    The base should still be protected by AD systems. Pantsirs and Tor. S-400 should be at the base as well. Why park em away? Unless they are just letting them strike the base and leave a non functioning il76 as a cheap target.

    With the large scale proliferation of ATGMs and MANPADs, Russia needs to press into service Orion and Okhotnik to identify and strike these ATGM and MANPAD units.

    Russia is fighting with two fingers of one hand against that nazi fringe and the poor people they are forcing to pretend they care until they get their chance to defect. Russia would never fight that way against a peer enemy, they would just throw their weight with full force and crush them with artillery and air raids instead of accepting casualties and slow progress to spare the country, its population and even its military.

    I am starting to think that all these years of inaction by Russia were just them taking their time to prepare for the clean-up of Ukraine, both military and economically. In particular, the experience gained in Syria and their new operational concepts, equipment and tactics will be invaluable to deal with the militants that certainly will be supported by the West in the future.

    Maybe, but what is blocked, they cant take apparently as per Borell.  So yeah.

    But once again, it doesn't make sense since Russias reserves are still at $640B.

    I meant that Russia was preparing their economy for the backlash resulting from starting such an operation in Ukraine by diverting their exports to the East, saving massively, creating alternative payment methods and substituting imports, among many others.

    Can anyone explain why we have pictures of abandoned Tors? Are they just thrown away in enemy territory? I thought Russian troops aren't Syrian.

    Also how's the pincer operation going? Will troops in the south be able to link up with the ones in Kiev by tonight?

    Is it true that Russian soldiers don't have encrypted radios?

    Poor logistics. They don’t have enough fuel. They prepared for a quick war. Just as US intelligence has been saying and suggested.

    I’m sure things will turn around as they are making adjustments but that’s the facts.

    Members on this forum will deny it but it’s quite obvious at this point to anyone who has telegram and a small bit of common sense.


    Hope Russia bought some Bitcoin during the Covid crash.
