Maybe throw in Abkhazia, South Ossetia and Transnistria. Even Kazakhstan, Tadjikistan and Kirgistan. Let the west call it a new Sovietunion. F... em. After that I would build a fence and dig a trench along the western border.

    I would add Gagauzia to that as well lol!

    Not the pilot's fault - he just follows orders (briefing) from his sq commander and he did. They got him because he flew the same flight path every day as per instruction but keep spewing bs.

    They train at night, with quadcopters, drones, UGV, and all that

    But it's a good thing for VDV and ground force to get this experience

    Also it could help get better procurement if their officers see what they could use
    . I believe it is normal also in the west, FBI probably has some special forces that are much more capable in this kind of environment than the navy seals, the marines or the ranger..

    Most soldiers are not trained to work as MP, also

    Kosovo for US = Georgia for Russia. 1 bomber lost for both and few jets.

    Iraq for US = Ukraine for Russia. More planes lost and lot of ground equipement too.


    They are very similar. US in Iraq used lot of effort to hide their losses. I remember watching a documentary in Afghan about french troops. They had US help at one moment who suffered losses and they forbid tge TV crew to film the destroyed vehicles.

    And I would give the advantage to Russia. They fight alone conrrary to US who bring a coalition everytime (you also need to take into account coalition losses for Iraq and Afghanistan as well as in Kosovo because looking at only US ones isn't fair). Russia goes in alone and it has less weaponery and recco tools than US yet they don't any worse overall.

    7) Member of Ukraine's First Delegation at Talks With Russia Killed by Security Service of Ukraine, Verkhovna Rada's Lawmaker Claims. A Verkhovna Rada lawmaker claims that a member of Ukraine's first delegation in talks with Russia, Denis Kireev, was killed by the Security Service of Ukraine during arrest on suspicion of treason.

    There's been no official confirmation yet, but Ukrainian media outlets have published a graphic photo allegedly showing the slain negotiator.

    8 ) Russian MoD: Ukraine Rejecting Russia's Proposals to Open Humanitarian Corridors in Kharkov and Sumy

    9) Russian MoD: Nationalists Not Letting Civilians, Foreigners Leave Mariupol and Volnovakha

    10) Over 787,000 People Entered Poland From Ukraine During Russian Operation, Border Guard Says

    11) Up to 200 People Buried Under Rubble as Azov Militants Blow Up Building in Mariupol - DPR Head (AWAITING CONFIRMATION)

    13) 17 Civilians, Including Children, Managed to Evacuate From Mariupol Via Humanitarian Corridor, DPR Says

    Ukranian Army used Igla to shoot down two Ka-52. But it looks to me countermeasures spoofed one missile of the three plus launched, and the Ka 52 that grounded reportedly had the Igla counterjam and home on the countermeasure pod.

    Not sure how the Mi-24 got hit. If the Ka-52 has countermeasures obviously the Mi-24 has that too. Or maybe as in the case of the Ka-52 a couple of missiles were probably fired at a number of Mi-24s and unfortunately one of them was hit.

    Another su-34 may have been down. So 2 su-34 and 1 su-30 and 1 mi-24 today. They suck at SEAD. Bring those kh-25P and kh-31 and drones. Where are the su-57 to launch kh-31 from safe areas ?

    This is maddening, su30 and su34 should not be lost over this damn country 

    Where are the big strikes, why are these aircraft operating so close to the ground? 

    Whoever is in charge of this operation is exposing the credibility of the armed forces to unnecessary pressure and danger it really is unbearable to watch

    I think at this point everyone is in agreement, it's not western propaganda, 

    If we go off MOD numbers alone, it shows a problem 

    I dont think it's the officers, it's the stupid kremlin

    Look any Pro Russia thread and see what people are saying

    When it comes to AD destruction bombing people is useless. Those system need to be destroy asap even for the Kremlin. There shouldn't be any restriction for their destruction by the kremlin like there is for bombing cities.

    They're flying low, Ukraine has strong AD, so why arent they high up in large numbers with forward planes baiting the AD

    And rear planes sending kh31 to radar emissions ?

    Basic SEAD, these imbeciles are sending fighters alone at low altitude to do a bomb run like its 2008

    Its criminal incompetence, and not defensible at all, I least I cant defend such a position 

    VKS planes should own that sky, and I cannot explain why it's like token velvet approach

    That base taken is about the same size as the gear we can report as really lost by the Russian army.
