    Some more progress reported in Mariupol - DPR now controls about 60% of the western side. Urban warfare is no joke but these guys are totally motivated to get the job done. Heroic stuff indeed!

    Still watchable without English translation. Zelensky put out video purporting to show him Kiev. But all the video is fake.
    The one in his office has disappearing pictures and is clearly a stitch job from different times given his facial hair, etc. The
    one outside is a total fake with the background being edited into it. The Youtuber analyzing it highlights that this is
    a video overlay since the colour sensitivity is different indicated two different cameras were used. There are also some
    motion artifacts which are inevitable since they are attempting to make it look like the background jitter is consistent with the
    camera filming Zelensky.

    Why are you surprised? Because he called your lie?

    White people do not get involved in as many conflicts as people of colour do. Compare the number of wars in Europe since the end of WW2 with the number of wars in Asia and Africa.


    @ Jhelb

    Ah....The optimism of youth ! I envy you , you only dislike the Brown skinned people in Russia , who are taking resources........But I am much more hate filled than you are ! Having lived a bit longer , I realised that we all go to the toilet the same way ! Nobody eats flower petals and farts perfume . When I die , I will curse all humans and will never wish to come back to life . And since you admire the Anglos , why not go to England now and say you are Russian , and get kicked out by the Queen and have your property confiscated ? I bet you will still admire the English model ?

    @ Werewolf

    It is the West that is dividing the Slavs , not Asians or others . Also the Slavs do not unite around being Slavic . They divide into nations , with own interests . In order to stop the killing , some populations need to be settled in different areas of refugee camps . This is of course voluntary . These Zones or sectors are therefore divided between Russian speakers and Ukraininan speakers . This will allow peace to be kept . A decree , will establish this rule . A referendum on future , if practical is a good idea . But unlikely to take place soon . Out of the different possibilities of a unitary state , two independent states or a Russian state and a dependent Ukraininan state , the later , seems the most practical .

    Edit : " white skinned ! " , people have been fighting their wars on " Brown skinned " people's turf since WW2 !

    Makes sense. Visa and Mastercard don't work outside of Russia for Russians.  So the consulate will have to negotiate and or if Unionpay is accepted, the cards of these individuals will have to be replaced with ones that work in union pay

    A little bit off topic but what countries does Union Pay work in?

    1) Russia to Repay Debts in Rubles; May Convert to Forex Once Reserves Unfrozen

    2) Watchdog: Ukraine's Neutron Source Facility Switched to Non-Operating Mode
    The Ukrainian State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate said on Thursday that the Neutron Source subcritical nuclear facility at the Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology was not operating because it had been switched by experts to the so-called long-term shutdown mode.
    "As of March 10, 2022, the situation at the nuclear subcritical facility Neutron Source Based on the Subcritical Assembly Driven by a Linear Electron Accelerator (Neutron Source) remains unchanged: the nuclear facility has been transferred to a deep subcritical state ('long shutdown' mode)," the inspectorate said

    3) Putin: US Trying to Deceive Its Population by Blaming Russia For Rising Energy Prices
    The United States are making attempts to sign contracts on energy resources with Iran and Venezuela, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.
    "They are already trying at all costs to reach an agreement with those countries against which they themselves introduced illegitimate restrictions in past. And they are ready to make peace with Iran, to immediately sign all the documents. And with Venezuela. They went to Venezuela to negotiate with them. But it was not necessary to introduce these illegitimate sanctions," Putin told a government meeting.
    The Russian leader also said that the US is trying to deceive its own population by putting the blame for high prices on Russia.
    "Supplies of Russian oil to the American market do not exceed 3%. This is a small amount. And their prices are growing. We have absolutely nothing to do with it. And even here the ban on the import of Russian oil has absolutely nothing to do with it. They just hide behind these decisions in order to deceive once again their own population," Putin added.

    12) Lavrov Says Russia Ready for Contacts to End Ukrainian Crisis
    He noted that the issue of negotiating a ceasefire was not on the agenda of his talks with Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba today.
    The foreign minister stated that Moscow supports any contacts that are aimed at ending the current crisis in Ukraine. He added that these contacts must have "added value" for Moscow to agree to them.

    13) Kremlin: If Someone Uses Weapons Against Russian Forces in Ukraine, They Will Become Targets

    14) US-Funded Bio Labs in Ukraine Conducted Research Into Bat Coronavirus, Russian MoD Says.
    According to the documents, the American side planned to conduct work on pathogens of birds, bats, and reptiles in Ukraine in 2022, with a further transition to studying the possibility of carrying African swine fever and anthrax. the facilities were studying the possible spread of pathogens via wild birds, migrating between Russia, Ukraine, and other countries in the region.
    The purpose of this - and other Pentagon-funded biological research in Ukraine, was to create a mechanism for the covert spread of deadly pathogens", he added.

    The Russian Defence Ministry will soon publish the documents received from staff at the Ukrainian biolaboratories, as well as the results of their examination

    The analysis of the received materials confirms the fact that more than 140 containers with ectoparasites of bats - fleas and ticks - were transferred from the biological laboratory in Kharkov abroad"

    Most of the documentation related to the research has already been evacuated from Ukraine by the Americans

    US-funded biological labs in Ukraine were conducting experiments with bat coronavirus samples

    15) Evacuation today: over 1000 evacuated from Irpin', 2000 evacuated from Izyum, buses arrived in Sumy, Humanitarian convoy on the way from Zaporizhiye to Mariupol, Humanitarian aid arrived at Enerhodar

    16) Russian troops captured Mala Rohan village near Kharkiv

    17)reported to be Russian tank. Seems caged armour used to protect from top attack anti tank weapons.

    Yes, rutube.ru appears to be right in Moscow.

    However rutube.com appears to be in Canada, Toronto and LA, US.

    Those international mercenaries from a few days ago seem to have an awful lot of FN FNC's. Strikes me as a bit odd, given that 5.56x45 supply is bound to be limited. Also, wonder who supplied them.

    PS. Even if some of them are veterans from the ME or wherever, they've never been on the receiving end of cruise missiles, loitering munitions, huge artillery barrages and, as I suspect we'll see eventually, actual strategic bombing. I think they're in for a rude awakening.

    Russia Roils Plane-Backed Bonds by Keeping $10 Billion of Jets

    (Bloomberg) — Russia’s decision to block foreign owners from seizing hundreds of planes worth about $10 billion is roiling a market where aircraft leases are bundled into bonds and sold to investors.

    They aren't keeping theyvare just frozing their assets like they do in the west with russian stuff.

    Good. Then flood the market with ms-21 and SSJ100 russian version.

    That will be very good for the industry that depend on airbus. Even boeing is not competitive anymore.

    Just a whiff of what's to come. Their ilk would be set upon with the very same weapons by their very own governments in the not so distant future.

    Part of UK's Defence Secretary’s statement to the House of Commons on Ukraine today:

    "To date, the international community has donated more than 900 man-portable air defence missiles and thousands of anti-tank guided weapons of varying types, as well as various small arms. However, the capability needs strengthening, so in response to Ukrainian requests the Government have taken the decision to explore the donation of Starstreak high-velocity, man-portable anti-air missiles. We believe that this system will remain within the definition of defensive weapons, but will allow the Ukrainian forces to better defend their skies. We shall also be increasing supplies of rations, medical equipment, and other non-lethal military aid.”


    An in thread comment on it

    Yes. The system is pretty straight forward. Someone with as little as 1 hour of training would be able to engage a lot of targets. It will take longer to get the full benefits of the weapon system and how to set it up and maintain it. I won’t give too much away!

    It’s a short range air defence system (SHORAD), so anything within 10km is game. You basically line up the optical sight with the target, fire the missile at it, then continue tracking the target with the optical sight. It uses a variation of the semi-automatic command line of sight (SACLOS) guidance system. The command unit paints the target with a pair of modulated lasers. When fired the missile assembly releases the three darts. Each dart measures the delta between the command unit’s tracking angle and the missile. It will then steer the dart to minimise the delta angle. Where it will then hit the target with the darts.

    Due to the Mach 4+ speed of Starstreak, the closure speed is enormous, so the time of flight to hitting the target is relatively short. This means that a target flying over you will remain painted by the command unit and not have much chance of evading it. The system was predominantly designed to counter attack helicopters that do pop-up attacks from cover. As the WARSAW PACT Mil24s used wire guided missiles (much like TOW), this meant they had to hover in place when firing at a target. Therefore, the missile’s high speed was required to hit the helicopter before it could track the target. Once the helicopter was hit, the wired guided missile would go ballistic and miss the moving target. The missile’s high speed also meant that high speed low flying fixed wing aircraft, were easier to defend against. Roll on twenty years, Starstreak has been given more range. It is still very deadly against attack helicopters, but also against UAVs.

    As it uses lasers to paint the target, unless the aircraft has a laser warning system, it won’t detect the launch. The missile does not leave a noticeable smoke trail, so a visual warning is also not likely, unless you are flying directly or looking at the right spot when its launched. The system is very difficult to jam and next to impossible to decoy.

    As Ukraine will only be getting the MANPAD version. This system uses predominantly the operator’s visual searching to detect targets. It does have a thermal detection optic. I don’t know if they will be getting the additional air defence alerting device (ADAD). The ADAD is a development of the Typhoon’s PIRATE IRST. It provides the operator with both day and night passive searching and extends the search range.

    The tripod mounted control unit can also fire the LMM Martlet missile.

    If Ukraine get the system, it will be the first time its really been used in anger. It was taken to the Gulf War 2. Though I can’t remember if was used? During training days, the system was very reliable in both use and hitting the target.

    Unlike Stinger, Starstreak is not a fire and forget weapon system. The operator must remain tracking the target all the way until it hits. However, the missile is nearly twice as fast as the Stinger and has double the range. It is also a lot more robust, as you don’t have be so careful handling it, due to the lack of cryogenic cooling for the Stinger’s IR sensor.

    In Ukraine’s hand Starstreak will be deadly to Russian manned aircraft and UAVs.

    Russia can't do much as counter sanctions , you can only sanction ,when your country have a LOT of business power with global reach , but Russia doesn't have that.  It was developed like a gas station with other basic business ,that alternative to them exist . All they can do is sanction west from energy that hurts more Russia and mining and agriculture which can be easily replaced by business from competition.  This is why Russia economy can be so easily sanctioned ,because putin allowed the nation to become almost totally dependent on western business. This is why in modern times we live ,
    any nation who wants independent from the anglowestern system , needs to become self sufficient with their business , and develop alternatives at home ,to the business that the western alliance have complete control of the market. The only thing putin offers competition to the west is with weapons industry and perhaps nuclear reactors market , but in everything else , russia offers no real competition. Because every nation export food like Russia , every nation export minerals , so many nation export water, and wood.. but only a handful of nations export state of the art next generation tech , and they are all part of the western world order. Putin now is paying the price for being so lazy and timid with the russian economy and business model. No

    Demilitarized ( and neutral )  Ukraine and denazification , necessitates the military take over and " occupation " of Ukraine , together with a major " nation building " effort by Russia . A two state solution , is the only feasible solution to the ethnic conflict . Leaving Ukraine in it's present state , is much worse than even the situation faced prior to the special operations . Russia has paid the price in sanctions already . Withdrawal now will deal a mortal blow to morale of Army and prove fatal to political leadership and prove an existential threat to Russia by Ukraine / NATO in the near future . The minimal demands by Russia of Ukraine of recognition of LDPR and Crimea and an undertaking to renounce WMD.......can not be made by paper agreement or guarantee . It is by itself wrong to make these minimal demands , knowing full well that these can not bring peace or stability .

    Sorry, but there is NO ETHNIC CONFLICT!!!! Do not make the mistake to divide us! Like it or not, the brainwashed Ukrainiains are still ours and whole of Ukraine and Belarus are Russian countries and should be re-integrated over time. Divide and conquer tactics should be crushed by Russia in the future before they can bear fruits like in Ukraine!


    Are you retarded?

    Even back in the "days of yore" Kiev had to be taken by force.

    I wonder why?
