    Let's not forget, they said Ukrainian forces. For all we know, they aren't counting that same number as in Azov and other nazi groups.

    All the nationalist and nazi militias were incorporated into the Army or National Guard several years back. This aides in keeping the regular units loyal and in line ideology wise.

    Rather small numbers all around when Russia is capturing left right and center like crazy.

    Yes because being nice means you don't give your units proper recon support and don't tell three Tigrs "Yo drive into that city center alone and with no support, totes will be fine"

    Those guys in the Tigrs probably just got lost on their way to the objective. This is quite common actually. Back in the day with the uprisings in the Black townships in South Africa our unit commander and his deputy commander got lost in a very hostile township on his way to the base. They got lucky but shit happens.

    No, they do not and good combat officers rarely make good Administrative officers.

    But if they have the right people in charge and russia has clearly taken the gloves off.

    Now we get to see just how powerful they really are.

    Most are in the Donbas front however there was an unit (battalions mostly) assigned to each Region to assist the SBU in maintaining control. Some of these units are better equipped then the regular units like Saddam's Republican Guard.

    So Russia has been mostly dealing with the more "elite" of these guys and the rest of the hodge podge forces are being encircled and DNR/LNR are advancing on them?

    Oh wrong again, the ghost of Kiev flying a Li 2 launched a massive assault and now controls Russia up to the Urals. I read it in the Washington Post.

    Can you provide a link? I am sure if this happened this would be on CNN. I have yet to see this from our corporate state controlled press.

    I've seen lot of those t-64 destroyed and none of them was blown up. Are they not carrying any round inside ? They should explode the same way as t-72 since it is the same design.

    This is funny, the west and their so called sanctions. They can't live without Russian trade.

    Poland's PM @MorawieckiM: Sberbank and Gazprombank are to be excluded from EU sanctions due to "transactions related to energy supplies to the EU" - this is UNACCEPTABLE

    lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!
