Of course Ukrainian troops should be engaged there where they pose a threat or engage in combat action. But hitting them in their barracks is brutality. Hit them when they're out on the field instead.
So don't attack them when they are together and an easy target... wait till they are all in position killing Russian soldiers and then try to kill them in tiny groups... the opposite of what you have been saying to minimise Russian casualties.
They tend to like operating with civilians as meat shields so killing certain units in their barracks makes a lot of sense.
Fact of the matter is that we attacked a sovereign state and are now talking about breaking the morale of their soldiers by wiping them out in mass strikes.
A sovereign state in name only, run by the US to attack Russia with and was already murdering its own citizens and justifying it by claiming they were Russian speaking Russians.
As soon as Russia recognised the Donbass and Lugansk republics... which under international law they had every right to declare independence and Russia has every right to recognise, then the Kiev forces occupying their territory and killing their people became the attacker and Russia responded by helping its newly recognised neighbours to defend themselves.
The west blew the shit out of Iraq when rescuing Kuwait in 1991, and economic sanctions crippled the country for the next few decades...
Whatever the nature of the regime there.. such a strategy would be hideous. I hope that's not what our command is thinking.
Kiev was the aggressor state that by its own admission was already fighting Russian forces... Putin just made it official...
People can judge me later, But for me it means more Russians Troops get home alive to their family's when this is done.
And that is another point... the western world has already tried and convicted Putin of a million war crimes already... what are a few more and why would he start to care now?
So with Zelensky warning about WW3 if the talks fail, I think the plan is for a NATO no-fly zone using air defense systems
Well with Russian civilian airlines banned from HATO airspace and EU airspace then why don't the Russians turn on their S-400s and create no fly zones over those HATO countries...
No more air deliveries of weapons to the Orcs... that would be useful... it would also make those air defence systems in those HATO countries fair game if they start to track Russian aircraft... or missiles...
what do you guys think about the prospect of Azov actually tries to overthrow Zelinsky if he accepts Russian terms ?
Lots of infighting would be good... reduces the pressure on Russian forces... and gets the job done too by killing more nazis.
Only 3-5km ? It's a shitty system.
They are 80mm aircraft rockets, it is a highly mobile equivalent of a light truck with a rocket pod from an aircraft placed on the rear... it would be used to direct fire at a building or enemy position so you wouldn't want to be firing from enormous ranges... it is a rocket replacement for a HMG for fighting in urban areas.
Are you some supersense-guy and knew about Operation Z before the rest of us?
He just recognises a leopard never changes his spots...

Looks like a bus stop... perhaps a back bench MP was there getting a blow job and left his laptop with secret files there again... the person giving the blow job probably put up that sign.
Although the S-5 was largely dropped from Russian service it could still make a come back.
The warhead was deemed too light... it was about 800 grammes of HE, which is rather more than a hand grenade but still not a lot.
Interestingly the RPG-16 was a 58mm calibre tube that had a rocket entirely contained inside the tube and was reusable like an RPG-7 which has a smaller 40mm tube.
The enlarged tube of the RPG-16 meant a bigger rocket motor but smaller shaped charge warhead which was still quite potent but they kept making bigger warheads for the RPG-7 so the RPG-16 remained a VDV weapon mostly but they tend to use RPG-7 and RPG-29 and disposable rockets now.
Ukrainian troops that were based in Berdyansk - thousands and thousands of soldiers and sailors - surrendered the port without a fight, leaving the entire infrastructure of the port intact ...
There were Ukrainian troops in the Crimea that chose to stay and become Russian, there will be more Ukrainians in the Ukraine who want to stay and remain Ukrainian too.
