    Sometimes I sincerely wish the Russians carried out carpet bombing. I know and it is clear to me that civilians would inevitably be killed, but there is time for bombers too ..The main reason is the crimes committed by the Ukrainian army. Those stories about AZOV Nazis are no longer relevant, because it seems to me that there are many bastards among "ordinary" soldiers and units of the Orc army. I am convinced that the Russian army will retaliate at some point.

    It's a tin dish and an amplifier.

    Did they capture the separate terminal? Because that's the only potentially sensitive part.

    If there was a place to carpet bomb it would be Lvov and the like. Not the clearly Russian areas.

    Similarly if America/similar keep sending MANPADS in to the Azov/similar terrorists, Russia could start ultimatums.

    Something along the lines of:-
    "Every one you send one MANPAD to kill Russian speakers, we will send TWO to black drug gangs/Hispanic criminals.
    So next time a black man is assassinated by cops, the local police station gets its walls blown off".

    It could stop them being so smug with the whole affair.
    I don't agree with terrorism in any form. But American terrorism does need to be stopped.

    I'm amused that you think Putin is going to tell the whole truth on day 1 of the war!!  clown

    Putin will divulge only those reasons that he cares to.  Russian gov will have a whole raft of objectives, some primary, some secondary, some mandatory, and others which are desirable but which will depend on how the conflict unfolds.

    Putin is playing poker with the MFers in the West (as at its fundamental level, this is a proxy war).  He won't display his hand to the enemy, and you'd be a fool to think that he would.

    That's all remarkably cunning and everything

    But he's also not divulging anything to his own people either, while expecting them to accept the war and all its bad consequences.

    Well not really, All the system does it basically serves as a hub between two contact points.

    Nothing on the system would be anything the US and NATO don't already have the ability to do or have ourselves/

    Plus you cannot just turn the system on and listen in, it's like when you make a phone call, the call must be accepted.

    So this particular systems capture is no big deal, as it will not reveal anything, just a nice little propaganda token is all, don't get me wrong they could have at least dropped a grenade or two near the thing to take it out.

    Well, all I'm saying is that if the dish and amp was the only thing they got hold of, it's beyond worthless. Nothing in particular that makes it any different from any dish from Radioshack, only the green paint and folding structure for portability.

    If they got the separate terminal, maybe something useful could be glanced from it, but my guess is that, surprise, the terminal wasn't just discarded like that.

    they should be watching Task and Purpose videos more, as he outlines that complaining is a part of being a soldier. He explicitly said that if one doesn't complain he either not deployed or not in service. hahaha

    From what I read, there are many critics about the "mistakes" of Russia.
    If they are so good, they could go to fight in Ukraine, surely with their presence and great combat ability, they will defeat the Ukrainians in a short time.

    and nobody criticizing Ukrainian mistake of neglecting their arms industry for so long that they now have to rely on imported arms and can only make rather small things.
    Like where were those Saudi money in developing Grom went..or why it took so long for them just to make Uran look-alike.

    What most don't want to see is ukrainian losses. They have no military infrastructure left, no oil, no equipement no navy, no air force. And they are happy for destroying 200 soviet tanks. And the most pathetic is that they are happy to see westerners fanbois be happy of such results, 200 tanks destroyed for a country destroyed. I mean only an illuminated asshole can't say who is winning here.

    They would have taken a full picture of that system if it was the case. Here you see just a piece of metal with a notice on it. That thing may have been destroyed by the russians and they just pretend to have something valuable when it probably is just a burned metal piece.

    Strikes near Pavlograd right now, first ones AFAIK, probably on UA reinforcement staging points, but that just a guess.

    The giant Kremenchuk refinery and depot is still burning violently, and additional strikes could have arrived today as well, there's daylight drone footage being circulated showing more missile arrivals. Can't vouch for it though, could be unrelated stuff, and it is quite far into firmly UA-held territory so my usual caveat applies. I was correct before when doubting the drone footage of the Kinzhal strikes, as the alleged location just kinda ruled out Orlan-10 or whatever.

    They are DNR conscripts. On both sides, conscripts have very low morale. Lucky for DNR guys, no one is throwing them in the battle and after Mariupol there will be little use for them.
