    Good video about the economic situation in Russia.









    I have a question about the Russian Central Bank reserves that were seized.

    Do you think that Russia will get them back?

    If not, how will Russia respond?

    Foreign currency reserves are not important at the moment

    Russia has banned repayment of debts in foreign currency,  so we wont be trading with those states for a while

    What is important is printing rubles

    i think they know.. zelensky will be hanged in public by the ultra nationalist if ever agree with those terms. The demands looks more like statements for western media , so everyone in the world knows that the peaceful ukraine ,was under criminal activities , what provoked russia to invade.

    How are they beaten on the ground? they have very little forces in Ukraine so you are right they are a bit overstretched.

    They aren't being pushed back however, they are going forward. In war, if you are going forward that means you winning....

    The army is also being handcuffed by their own leaders.

    if you wanted to avoid this war so bad Macron should have made the rest of NATO agree to a neutral Ukraine.

    You are ignorant has hell to the realities, don't get me wrong the Russians are embarrassing themselves in certain areas in the war but they aren't losing lol.

    The Issue i see more relevant that somehow Putin appears to be sourounded only by boot lickers and yes sayers and this led to the state Russia is now. Nobody with a sane mind can tell me that Russia expected this massive fallout. It appears they thought its a 2 days adventure and the EU accepts it.

    Infact in a way the EU must thank Putin because finally it projects power. Supplies weapons and uses its endless monetary power to raise the cost for russia to extreme levels

    Lmao Russia didnt go into a surprise

    Bunch of clowns

    Putin announced sanctions were happening anyway, Biden firmly made clear the repercussions of Russian intervention

    And the Kremlin took a shit on it

    It also took a shit on the EU

    Right now, at stake is the rebuilding of the Empire, USSR 2 whatever you want to call it

    Putin has been politically correct for many years "western partners", "denazification", "polite people", "USSR dissolution greatest tragedy of century"

    Cmon man, it's quite obvious Kremlin played a quiet role, we knew this was coming, it had to be denied to the last moment

    It's obvious since 2014 what was happening, many advisors made it clear

    Some adjustments just had to be done before work could begin to restore Russia to Ukraine

    Russias performance in Ukraine has been great

    NATO lost 70 aircraft over Yugoslavia, and more over Iraq

    Its day and night to compare Russian strength to the weakness of NATO

    The Orcs are clearly winning. Rolling Eyes

    Short reminder for some of the special guests here: In Syria the VKS was able to fly 100+ sorties a day for weeks, with roughly 50 - 60 combat planes. The number only dropped while they had no targets left to hit. In this theater the VKS has many more planes/helicopters and a lot of airfields, it could easily fly 1.000+ sorties a day, maybe even 2.000 (helicopters can fly many sorites a day if necessary). They don´t do it because this would mean many more civilian casualties = NATO style operation.

    Women and children evacuate. Its like when Xerxes invaded Greece. Entire Athens was evacuated too. Then the persians git wiped out.

    Question, how many troops are you willing to lose? Since it looks like we wont stop sending MANPADS zo Ukraine, it means constant high losses for your army

    Zelensky allegedly fled also. He's a bit feminine though.

    West, with exception of USA, does not have much of weapons.
    Remember how you ran out of ordnance very quickly against Lybia some years back? It's ridiculous to think you can outspend Russia which most likely has the biggest stockpiles of ammo in the world.

    There won't be much more losses. Kievan forces must be quite exhausted by now. I assume you noticed Russia took a small change in tactics after initial losses: they decided to soften Kievans a little more first (by hitting them with more cruise missiles and long range artillery) instead of just pushing forward with infantry.

    I am fully 100% glad, Russia is not talking in Kremlin speak and playing footsie with the west

    I am fully happy the RVSN was activated and we were going to nuke EU and USA on day 3 lmfao

    We made em back down, we conduct the operation how we want to

    Biden is worried about elections, and the EU got played like a fiddle

    Russia takes a shit on sanctions

    It is extremely obvious that UA has focused ridiculous, seemingly unproportionate amounts of their available manpower and material assets on reinforcing the old Donbass lines. This also makes me more and more certain that the alleged plans for a February offensive that were revealed a day or two ago were true.

    The extremely reinforced Volnovakha area finally fell to L/DNR forces just now. It was a landmark goal, apparently.

    Fighting was fierce as hell, by all accounts. The Ukrainians seem to have gotten immediate fall back orders though, with little time to clean up after their stay, because once again loads of unused western munitions (Javelins, NLAWs etc) were apparently captured by the LDNR.

    Rumors have it that captured Javelins have already been used against Ukrainian armor, but just rumors. There was also some supposed impromptu manual of Javelin/NLAW use being distributed among rebel troops, but I cannot vouch for its veracity.

    Interesting analyst considering totals also include the Donbas and Crimea.

    Spriter @spriter99880

    Foreign analysts have calculated  how many troops Russia will need to control the liberated territory (west of the Dnieper River and north of Odessa) after completion special operation in Ukraine.

    What's up with the 380 billion euro assets being held claim?

    Were the Russians really dumb enough to not withdraw their assets before the attack?

    Why is nabiullina still in power? What would happen if Russia nationalized it's central bank? They're completely cut off from the west by now.

    So you say Kremlin knew we take 380 billion € of russiam assets? That we would eradicate any russian presence within Europe and crush oligarchs into oblivion? Did he also expect that we make Ukraine a new Afghanistan for them?

    On a sidenote. USSR was a joke and plagued by extreme poverty. You want give it a 2nd round?

    The problem is, Russia can offer nothing than misery. Thats why all run away from it. It has no attraction, in a way its an empire of dirt, as Johnny Cash called it. Given its complete isolation with the civilized world, its economic collapse...i guess USSR 2 will end worse than version 1.

    Why did Russia stockpile all that money to Western banks (only to have it confiscated) instead of investing it in Russia like building roads, railways, factories, new agricultural farms etc.?
