    And like the mercenaries and other weapons at that border, it will obtain a few kalibr hits itself.

    The Vasily Bykov was spotted sailing today, in perfect shape.

    So the anchored ship the Ukrainians bragged about having sunk using Grads, which they claimed was Bykov...

    What was it actually? That Romanian civilian freighter?

    Putin is speaking and Patrushev:

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡Kiev's offensive on Donbass and Crimea was only a matter of time, Russia prevented it - Putin

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡The special operation is going well, strictly according to plan - Putin

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡The Kiev authorities, through various channels, were asked not to engage in hostilities, to withdraw troops from Donbass, they did not want to - Putin

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡Our guys show courage and heroism - Putin

    🇷🇺❗Putin began the meeting on measures to support the regions with a statement about the reasons for the special operation in Ukraine: Kiev sabotaged the peaceful settlement of the crisis

    🇷🇺 🇺🇸 ❗Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Patrushev held a telephone conversation with the assistant to the President of the United States for National Security Sullivan
    The parties paid special attention to Ukraine. Patrushev told Sullivan about the inadmissibility of attempts to delay negotiations undertaken by Kiev from the outside, the Russian Security Council reports.

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡The appearance of Russian troops near Kiev and other Ukrainian cities is not connected with the desire to occupy Ukraine, Russia has no such goal - Putin

    🇷🇺🇺🇦The long-term mockery of the residents of Donbass could not be tolerated - Putin

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡All the tasks set in the special operation will certainly be solved — Putin

    Maybe more accurately a 700-800 km front, but it wraps around the ukrainian state from Odessa to brest essentially, weaving in and out around bulges and sieges. its a staggering war and completely, logistically unlike something in a more geographically contained theatre

    I don't think Russia is in any shortage of armour at the Ukrainian front. But the combat is so intense that units simply have to be rotated with as many fresh reserves as possible

    Those with combat experience in Osetia are already on pension. 080808 wasn't yesterday, even if it feels so.

    Nothing to see here. Just an anti-Russian assole, who is often mistaken by many to be a neutral observer, surprised to see 22160 still around in good shape. Many assoles had assumed the ship to be have been sunk after it was hit by Ukranian grad rockets, as the ship was not spotted in its base along with its sister ship.

    IMHO, one of the best designs to have come out in recent years is this low tonnage patrol ship. Small crew, >6,000miles and 60 days endurance.

    I don't think there will be a peace deal,

    I think Russia proposes conditions , so as to show the world it is attempting diplomacy

    Ukraine, well not them but the masters USA, implore them to explore such avenues to save face and show that they too are interested in peace

    In reality , it is all a paper theater , there is no progress in talks, the proposal that Ukraine be like Austria or Sweden is purely a proposal, a nicely dressed idea that won't go down in DC

    But parties will say they have talked about much, which indeed they have

    But as Putin said, the tasks of the special military operation will be solved

    So I believe DC stalls for Kiev , while Moscow also benefits to bring its logistics and forces from Russia into Ukraine

    Another reason US benefits from the illusion of peace talks is the panic of their own citizens regarding the economy and potential WW3.

    So they use the talks to backup their falling stock market, and reassure everyone that no such war will break out

    It is effectively the containment of war to Ukrainian territory

    Ofc he is not neutral, many post of him show that, but then again, he doesn't have much love for Ukraine, just dislike for Russia.

    Hitting shit with grad is possible, but not likely. Ukraine does have Kvitnyk kit that can make their artillery rounds laser-guided, apart from that they can't do much when it comes to coastal defense. If NATO didn't supply them with anything that is.

    All I hear now are people freaking out that NATO will join this battle due to false flag or something.

    I seriously do not get the worry honestly. They were scared to fly old migs into the country. They wont do anything of the sort where NATO is involved in Ukraine. False flag or not. US kept saying no to war with Russia.

    So I feel that people like the Duran and others that keep pushing this fear are creating fake scare mongering. No one cares what Poland demands or says. Same with Ukraine.

    Some Russian and some Ukrainian. Airfield rocketed twice with approximately 15 aircraft destroyed in total from one source that I read. How many were Russian aircraft unknown?

    This looks like a good map, overlaying both the western and Russian territory claims.

    But I can't see the N-facility/plant at Lyiv. None of the nuclear or rocket/missile installation should remain with Ukraine. Its a nuclear threat to Russia.

I though he will say something "if you want to destroy a nation, target the children, and Russian are just doing that" or some other bullshit. I didn't expect him to ADMIT THAT HE WANTS TO KILL CHILDREN. I know it's all talk, but how scummy you have to be to say this. I don't think there any sentiments like that even on separatist side.

    We know the Ukrainians will stage a chemical or biological attack. But it will just be another show for the west and russians will shrug their shoulders.

    Ukrainians should be revolting against Zelensky at this point.

    What needs to happen is a chemical attack done by zelensky and info leaks to the population that he's killed hundreds to cause a provocation and they revolt. And stick his head on spike in the centre of Kiev.
