    Putin needs Zelensky to sign the surrender documents, else the rest of Westworld, that have built up Zelensky, wont see the surrender as legitimate. Trouble is, if Zelensky signs a surrender, the neo-Nazi's will kill him.

    Like feeling that someone is mounting a fiesta she is not intending to participate with.
    I still don't believe Ukros to be in a position to mount an operation against almost 20k defending forces, but as those warehouses are 2 km from the border, it might be some attempt to catch it.

    Easy fix for that. Re-declare neutrality, cancel all stupid new laws, and forbid any arms or fuel traffic through Moldova's territory. Then publicly state that the Ukrainian army is unwelcome to interfere in Moldova's internal issues.

    But she can't do that as she's a puppet and her curators are observing carefully.

    If she won't do it then the Moldovan elite have to work up some cojones, depose her and explain to the population why it was neccessary

    Because they're about to be dragged into a war that no-one in Moldova needs. If the Ukrainian army just by itself enters Pridnestrovie, de-jure invading Moldova's territory; then it's already enough, all possibilities from there on will lead to further destabilization. In the same way as once you fall past the event horizon of a black hole; any direction you then pick only leads you onto a longer or shorter path to your doom.

    Zelensky will be in Poland long before any of that. There will be no-one to sign any documents.

    But with the president out of Kiev, the seat of power is also vacant. Russia can simply pretend that he still matters while in reality taking over all the apparatus of the state.

    I hope that you are not advocating for total takeover of Ukraine? Imo, that would be a strategic mistake. Take east an south, territories that can be easily incorporated in Russia, cut Ukraine from Black Sea and leave rest to languish. You'll be left with a defeated and demoralized country of less than 20 million people and without most industrial, agricultural potential and commodities .

    This whole mess has one main reason.
    And it is Yanuk.
    This mother*ker was too busy with keeping his stolen assets close to his arse, that hardly thought about the other things.
    He could flee to Crimea or Donbas. Constitute a regime "in exile" and claim the unconstitutional coup in being.
    Adress the army to take the arms and defend the constitution, and ask "friends and allies" for intervention - that makes the Russians.
    A Kazach scenario, but in a bigger scale.
    The whole thing would end up in a month, all the rats would flee EU, barking from there as long as they would have money left.
    But no, and we have what we have - a close to 50k dead Ukrainians at the very moment, plus some 3-5k Russians.

    While Ukraine keeps attacking depots and similar facilities with no casualties it is hard to justify a strike on them.
    When they did that raid which killed civilians though, Russia should have striked.

    Well that's what I was hoping for back in 2014. Even better he could have gone to Kharkov where most of the southern and eastern region's governors were waiting for him 2 days after the coup, and declaring that they don't recognize the installed government.

    Instead he fled like a donkey's ass and Russia annexed the Crimea, giving the coup regime all the arguments and moral outrage it could ever hope for. For the last 8 years it has only solidified and eliminated all opponents, and went for a truly massive scale of brainwashing with bot farms, school education, media all under control churning out crap, actors and showmen as officials, and the West's best spin doctors

    The anti-Maidan coup conference in Kharkov, 22nd Feb 2014

    The one where Yanukovich sent a video address to, instead of turning up in person. The next time he was heard from he was already in Rostov-on-Don.
    While a few of these speakers were chased out by the SBU to Russia over the following days, before eventually agreeing to return as long as they disavow their activities and aren't prosecuted. Some other speakers here were killed.

    More cannon fodder

    ⚡3000 "gray wolves" transferred to Ukraine via Poland⚡

    This is reported by the sources of the @wargonzo project, who live in the territories temporarily occupied by the Kyiv regime.

    The participation of Turkish ultra-right nationalists in the hostilities on the territory of Ukraine is also confirmed by our interlocutors, who have access to radio intercepts. The first information about the arrival of 3,000 "gray wolves" to the Ukrainian-Polish border appeared about ten days ago, but only now we have learned that they have already been transferred to the Kharkov and Odessa-Nikolaev directions (three detachments of thousands of fighters were broken). Convoys with Turkish militants passed through Zhmerenka - along with heavy equipment and artillery.

    The interlocutors of the @wargonzo project from the military-analytical block suggest that the NATO curators of the Kyiv regime plan to use Turkish "aid" for counterattacks near Kharkov and Nikolaev.

    Considering that it is Turkey that supplies the criminal neo-Nazi regime with the notorious Bayraktars, the appearance of ultra-right “gray wolves” on the Ukrainian front looks absolutely logical. Moreover, the "gray wolves" have a lot of experience in combat operations against the Russian army and its allies in the Middle East. Activists of this particular radical organization once claimed responsibility for the execution of Russian pilot Oleg Peshkov in Syria.


    I'm thinking it's time for Russia to invite some Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians who have a bone to pick with America or its regional goons

    Only not as ground forces. Non-Europeans or non-Russian speakers would send the wrong sort of message. The most we can use as ground forces are ex-USSR and Serbian volunteers. Maybe some Bulgarians, Greeks, ex-East Germans if they ever care to join us.

    What we could use are pilots. Get some more Mi-24s, Su-24Ms, Su-25s dusted off from storage, and form some Arabic and Iranian speaking squadrons with aircraft they're familiar with. Will be good practice for them, and more firepower for us.

    If Yanukovich had stayed in Ukraine he would have been assassinated by the Banderites. The putsch regime controlled the military and the SBU - what good is having a bunch of politicans on your side if the bad guys have guns and are prepared to use them (like the sniper massacre in Maidan that killed ~100 people on both sides and led to the storming of the Rada?).

    Nazis successfully seized control of Germany, and Bolshies took Russia, for the same basic reason. They were prepared to use extreme political violence to intimidate their opponents to stay silent. The Banderites were successful for the very same reasons - the Odessa massacre is a great example.

    At least his fat ass would have been redeemed by martyrdom. Would have given an impulse to the anti-Maidan resistance.

    As it is, he's a traitor to those who he abandoned, and abandoned with no plan or instructions.

    I both agree and disagree.
    banderite wormins didn't have any advantage against the organized structure.
    It was the dismantling of the structure that made it possible for them to grab the power.
    First, Yanuk made "a deal" with EU that he won't use excessive force.
    This coup had all the causes to be crushed by force.
    An army, shooting at anyone with a mask or helmet, not being a police officer.
    But it is impossible when you are getting opposite orders, your CiC is fleeing the country, and ministers are busy stealing and running.
    Now we witness the opposite.
    A country run by ideologically crazy nazi structures, with SBU having carte blanche for killing, kidnapping, and stealing.
    A structure that won't hesitate to bomb its own people, and by the own people I do not mean the ones in Donbas.
    They have shelled their own towns in the suburbs of the capital, for God's sake Shocked Shocked They have shelled it while the civilian population was there, and masqueraded that as a Russian war crime later.
    They have shelled the entire town district full of their own people, on Sunday morning, only to strike a few APC.
    A massive propaganda campaign was released toward their own nation, lying to them any minute.
    That is all that the Yanuk regime was incapable of, and I guess that both technically, ideologically, and mentally.

    I think they hit another village yesterday in Belgorod, not sure if any civilians casualties but that is now multiple hits deliberately targeting civilians inside Russia, so far the only response has been vague idle threats about hitting planning centres or whatever it is they keep saying.

    There was also a UAV incursion into Voronezh almost 200km deep inside Russia, drone was reportedly shot down.

    https://t.me/mapsukraine/505


    Its becoming pretty clear that Kremlin is prepared to tolerate these attacks so may as well just keep quiet.
    Empty threats serve no purpose apart from making you look weak and indecisive imo. It will only galvanise the enemy.

    The Kremlin already issued a warning about striking decision centres. The warning has been ignored. It doesn't mean Russia is idle. They will follow through on their threat when a target and opportunity presents itself. A big juicy one. And no-one will have any right to cry about it

    Now I don't want to hear any more about the 'Kremlin looking weak', idle threats, not following through, etc... a schedule is not provided to you, of when and where Russia should strike.

    What should be fixed and immediately so however, are the anti-drone defenses in these territories. Crater any air defenses in neighbouring Ukrainian regions, and conduct air patrols for early warning and shoot-downs if necessary.

    You can hide under your pillow if you want to ignore the truth, but the simple matter of it is, if you threaten to do something several times, and your enemy not only continues as before but ramps up attacks and also continues to attack civilians , yet to fail to retaliate each and every time and only continue with more threats, you sure as hell end up looking weak and indecisive.

    I think the withdrawal from the border areas RA held in the north east that connected them all the way down to Donbas and Kharkov was a mistake. They could have been easily defended , provided a buffer, and set up AD to deal with this shit before they even reached the Russian border.

    I think Russia has already proven it doesn't care how it looks

    It just lets hard power do the talking. And those strikes will be carried out I'm confident. If you think the Ukrainians are idiots and haven't all based their generals and command centres on NATO territory or within civilian appartment blocs then you're naive. But every time such a target presents itself in the relative open, and they will - then it will be be struck without undue hesitation.

    We've been over the withdrawal countless times. It's done. Now Russia has to set up a real no-fly zone on the border and past it, make sure no more drones slip through.

    I think the withdrawal from the border areas RA held in the north east that connected them all the way down to Donbas and Kharkov was a mistake. They could have been easily defended , provided a buffer, and set up AD to deal with this shit before they even reached the Russian border.

    You have a gram of idea, how much ridiculous do you sound? scratch

    Still, Transnistria is set on fire by Ukraine, which was joyfully confirmed by the "talking head" of the regime in Kyiv:

    “If Moldova turns to Ukraine, then we can take control of Transnistria. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have enough forces for this,” Alexey Arestovich.

    Now I don't want to hear any more about the 'Kremlin looking weak', idle threats, not following through, etc... a schedule is not provided to you, of when and where Russia should strike.

    What should be fixed and immediately so however, are the anti-drone defenses in these territories. Crater any air defenses in neighbouring Ukrainian regions, and conduct air patrols for early warning and shoot-downs if necessary.

    The amount of mental gymnastics you perform on the daily is top notch entertainment.

    Literally wondering what drivel fp will have written today whilst clicking myself to the thread.

    Cautionary tale about ego, emotional investment and raw intelligence. You can be intelligent but without humility and self-awareness it doesn't really count for anything. On the other hand you can be very streetsmart/wise if you have the latter two but not the big brains.
