No. It means they have people as part of the Soviet Union who actually made nukes and know how to make them given suitable materials.
Ukraine makes ballistic weapons too and could quickly build an IRBM suitable for reaching Moscow or St Petersberg with a nuke warhead.
Besides that, what you said is correct. That is one point Germans do support, not all but some. I have heard and spoken to people, that they absolutely support Ukrainian plans to acquire nukes against Russia. This people have absolutely zero understanding what defensive or offensive weapons are and in the wrong hands anything of that sort is only one step further getting Germans nuked. They are in such disbelief that they are AGAIN on the wrong side, but believe they are the white knight protecting the "civilized world" from the Aggression of unholy forces. Germans and in general westerners have been conditioned to believe that any Russian information is 100% made up propaganda from Putin or his "troll-farms" while the West has only and exclusively independent medias who would never lie, because they have no "ties" to their governments, in other words there can not be any discussion or debate with people who already declare you and your information as dangerous, propaganda-talk and right out undemocratic.
I really believe that once even Russian or American tactical nukes explode in Frankfurt, Wörms (US tactical nukes location) there will be Germans supporting the war. We are past common sense or intelligence and unfortunately there is no return for the zombies in the West. They have entered a war with direct supplies to an enemy who is also openly fascist and this means NATO has declared war on Russia. It will not be a good ending, I am maybe a pessimist but not even NATO vs Soviet Union were this close to nuclear exchange and people are just completely ignoring this fact.
Guided 80mm rockets have been displayed at arms shows, but whether they are in full service or perhaps just for testing purposes is hard to say.
Certainly the new box shaped rocket pods don't seem to have been deployed, but the new laser guided rockets are supposed to be compatible with existing rocket pods without modification... including single tube launchers for drones.
AFAIK the 80mm Ugroza variants are not in service due to their high price tag compared to what they are worth, however, S-24 240mm and 122mm variants are in service but also in rather small numbers. I can not give you any source because this is just more the indication to be the case than actual source, but the past firing tests of several years have usually only included ATGMs and ASMs not much else I was able to see regarding helicopter-borne firing tests.
They even said "we can not sit and watch what the russians are doing"
Are they going to halt all Russian gas supplies to Europe?
Maybe Russia should.
You and I know that will not happen unless they have already another option which will cost them more money and a lot more souvereignity, which in all fairness they do not have at all. Predictions have been made by others and my predictions are, that as some sort of lesser form of embarrassment to the US/NATO, a lower member of NATO, like Germany will try to make a deal or speak to the evil heart of Putin to not let the Germans freeze and trying to acquire a limited amount/time of gas but at the same time keep up the rhetoric of pöser pöser Putin. IF Russia decides to provide them more gas then only with a special TAX and agreement with the name "Pact-of-NATO-Offensive-Sattelites-Tax" with the acronym "PONOS" which is Russian for diarrhea for being part of an offensive highly aggressive military pact.
Garry, I am in full agreement, shut down all supply for ALL natural resource to Germany for warmongering and undemocratic fascist-like censorship and anti-freespeech actions.
There are claims made yesterday that alleged that Putin openly stated that "Russians and Ukrainians are one people."
With this attitude he will destroy the conventional Russian armed forces.
I do not even think that ethnic Ukrainians are even Slavs, and compare this to Putin's spread of hatred against the genuinely Slavic Poles.
As a Polish person I am disgusted with such behavior.
Don't confuse nationality with ethnicity.
Ukraine is a political creation by the communists... it was called Russia before that.
Putins dislike of Poles is probably a reflection of their actions and words towards Russia while he has been in power...
I will never forgive Putin for this
So the Orcs continue their shelling... 2-3 Ukrainians killed every night for how long?
The US helping Kiev develop some nuclear weapons...
Not to mention those bio weapon labs the US has there... what are they doing?
Certainly not working on Covid or defence....
But only because of Putin, and his whole system, and the whole economy which he has built.
Of course... if Putin had kept Russia poor and energy dependent there would not have been any problems...
Has Navalny hacked your account?
I am not sure but I think he is to emotional and has to many private things going on than rather using cold rationality. Sooner or later Russia had to act and I think it was absolutely the right decision economically-wise but also military-wise. The reason behind that is, that sanctions hurt of course but will not have any affect of starting a revolution nor to change Russia's course. Hell North Korea has seen the 10000000% more intensive sanctions and is still a sovereign country and is still lacking the economy and natural resources to prosper and they stand on both legs. Russia as natural resources, technology, the required know-how and scientists and open markets to the rest of the World. The West has no natural resources to speak of except the US/Canada, but the rest of European nations are absolutely depended on Russia,China, India, Turkey and African nations.
The verminous Ottoman cockroach that trolls this thread won't like to see this...
If you had read his posts, despite the abuse he is getting from some on this forum he has expressed that he supports Russia now, though your abuse might flip him again despite you not being Russian.
There are some that are not interested in the truth and are unlikely to see they were wrong let alone admit it... Aristide is one example, but don't assume everyone is actually a fool.
I think there are just to emotional people here. Ottoman or not, the one thing I do respect about the Turks is they at least have themselves and their own security and future plans in sight and are not serving dogs of NATO. Yes, those plans might contradict with ours but at this point I think they got the correct notion not to trust the NATO/EU who just use them as the front-spearhead. I of course would welcome more pressure from the Turkish Government to get the American nukes off but maybe a Cuban crisis will be enough pressure from Moscow to the US and to Turkey to make the correct decision to pressure Washington to deescalate the situation. The "Ottoman guy" imho is just a reflection of some turkish Zeitgeist.
I am not against the war, UKRs are not brotherly people
They are enemy combatants who shoot at our forces and do not deserve mercy
I give a shit about Ukraine or its people
I have seen how they speak, if they are brainwashed I dont give a damn
To hell with them all, the ones that are friendly are hiding
Everyone else is a nazi in my eyes and should have been hit hard
Rather pay money for reconstruction then lose 500 more guys
I disagree with you and biology and ethnology in consensus with what we know about Russian history is pretty clear on this. We have the same genetics, haplo-group as well as the history that nullifies any rhetoric of different origins, languages or genes. Russians, Belorussians and Ukrainians are the same people, we are not brothers we are one and the same, brothers share only 50% of the same genes. The exception is of course some western ukrainians who have been mixed with polish genes. They are our brothers, but not so much mentally because they constantly try to be the West.
What was the rationale behind banning Facebook?
Hostile communication system, why let it exist?
Quite a naive question I must say. Russians had for many years enough reason to ban Deutsche Welle, Dozhd', Radio Moscwa and other western Propagandists, they were paid from abroad and had open anti-Russian rhetoric, which of course was allowed, but once they participated in criminal activity like sharing disinformation and advocating for Russian youth and minors to participate in Anti-Putin and Pro-Navalny demonstrations with the incense that all their doings which would be punished with a fine would be paid by Navaly's Fond. The Navalnists like Volkov are operating from US and Canada while demanding Russians to go on the streets and commit criminal activities against Russia and Putin. Despite all that Russia has not done jack shit against this Western 5th columnists where the West would already trialed them for 25 ++ years and made an open statement and demand to condemn and isolate Russia from the "civilized World" for being a communist,fascist, tsaririst, undemocratic, child-eating short Dictator.
The world is not black and white but some of the actions are, but despite all that it is absolutely necessary to look at the actions not the words. A lesson that most do not learn.
I know Werewolf, its just peak insanity here.
The misinformation from western media reporting on the wars in the middle East look like a dry run to what is happening now. Screaming for War.
Any coke dealer knows you shouldn't sample your own product... it is not healthy...
Only those dealers that know that they are dealers, we in Europe live in a world where the believe is it is free candy and have repeated their lies so many times, that they started to believe them.
