    There are veterans there and lots of civilians at those parades, they do that shit and Kiev needs to be reduced to unidentifiable piles of ash. Of course I'd move it up to 8 AM, have the soldiers and tech role straight to the front and for my money Putin needs to take to the review stand on the Mausoleum.

    It's best to denounce the government only. If such morale collapse will continue to happen in the east, then the Ukrainian army will have a decisive role against the current Gov. Twitter bullshit won't matter as sentiment in the military is born in fields and we all know that best Ukrainian troops are in the JTO, not in Kiev.

    Iraq and Afghanistan war mistakes will not be repeated.

    On the one hand, there is a limit to what an AWACS several hundreds of km away can detect and track. On the other, land based AD has a tiny footprint on low flying CMs. That is why I say that very dense AD is needed against them. But we have seen quite a few interceptions of Russian missiles, or at least attempts at it... even though many ended up hitting ukie buildings instead Wink

    Not that simple.

    If he wasn't part of Azov or wasn't involved in fighting (what else he was doing there?) then his idiotic pictures will mean **** all. It's not a cancel culture. Separatists themselves had some ex-nazis amongst them, it doesn't mean they killed and tortured people or continue to practice it (Pavel Gubarev for example)

    It's one to LARP and another to be an actual war criminal, just surprised it's an old **** who is doing that and not a kid. Plenty of videos of nazi larpers and sympathizers (mostly in their 18s) being questioned by DNR authorities. In Russia nazi symbolism gets you fined and put on a watchlist and if repeated - you get a bigger fine + public works and roughly 5-15 days of jail time and so on. Eastern Ukraine could as well use public works to clean up.

    Black Dolphin will have their share of inmates soon- real executioners, their commanders, recruiters, and propagandists.

    “Civilians”

    Its pretty clear that most, if not all of the civilians “trapped” there are Azov Nazi family members or as in this case fighters pretending to be civilians.

    It looks like a pirate convention to me. I told you guys. The plan of HATO against China was the nuclear attack submarines to sink their surface fleet then do commerce raiding on their merchant ships.

    They probably think they can do the same to Russia. Rolling Eyes

    Time to discover the "conventional" capabilities of Poseidon??

    I'm way past tired with this Azov excuse bullshit, they are all there because they want to be there and are all on the same page about massacring Russians

    Only morons would fall for this bullshit

    They whine about Azov because they all know what will happen to them if evidence of what they did ever appears, it's all about saving their own asses and throwing Azov under the buss is the easiest move

    They sure as shit didn't have issues with Azov back when they all thought this would be a cakewalk and that they would be killing Russians for sport as their new feudal overlords

    Agree about Azov becoming scapegoats. Now there are almost no Azov guys left. There are other battalions, but none of them were as big as Azov so I doubt they play a big role. Ukrainians got high on their own propaganda supply, no one is holding them hostages only their imaginary winning on all fronts.



    Rusich guy from LNR front (Like someone said, Azov of a sane person + with much more combat experience) with a tropy Swedish AT-4. Plenty of other ATGMs systems were captured too, but AT-4 seems to be more numerous on the LNR front.

    Unlike Ukrainian nazis, these guys know their business very well, having been in Syria, CAR, and Libya and they keep their ideology to themselves. Ukrainians are the first ones to call them nazis and cry about them and I find it hilarious.

    RIA Novosti; 03:06 04/30/2022 (updated: 03:24 04/30/2022)

    Lavrov: special operation in Ukraine helps to free the world from the influence of the West

    Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov: special operation in Ukraine helps free the world from the influence of the West


    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #14 - Page 22 17800410


    MOSCOW, April 30 - RIA Novosti. Russia's special operation in Ukraine is contributing to the process of freeing the world from the neo-colonial oppression of the West, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in an interview with Xinhua News Agency.
    He noted that "those who pursue an independent course in domestic and foreign policy, the Westerners are trying to suppress by the most brutal methods."
    “And not only Russia. We see how “bloc thinking” is being imposed in the Asia-Pacific region ... In the spirit of the archaic “Monroe Doctrine”, the United States seeks to dictate how and by what standards to live in Latin America ... In this vein, and the ongoing pressure on Belarus. This list can be continued," Lavrov said.

    At the same time, the minister expressed confidence that the attempts of the "collective West" to stop the natural course of history and solve their problems at the expense of others are doomed, since the modern world is multipolar. "Everyone has a real freedom of choice, including ways of development and participation in integration projects. Our special military operation in Ukraine also contributes to the process of liberating the world from the neo-colonial oppression of the West, heavily mixed with racism and an exclusiveness complex," Lavrov stressed.

    The West forgot about the multipolarity of the world


    The West and its satellites are trying to be "the arbiters of the fate of mankind," the Foreign Minister said. "It has gotten to the point that the Western minority is trying to replace the UN-centric architecture and international law formed after the Second World War with their own "rule-based order." These rules are written by Washington and its allies themselves, and then imposed on the international community as binding" , - he said.
    As the minister noted, the US and its allies are forgetting that the world is multipolar. "The sooner the West comes to terms with the new geopolitical realities, the better it will be for itself and for the entire international community," the minister said.

    Lavrov expressed confidence that the Russophobic line of the West has no prospects. "In the USA, Great Britain, Canada, the EU countries, they do not hide the goal of" strangling "our economy, blocking the further progressive development of the country ... It is obvious that this Russophobic line not only cannot be justified in any way, but also has no prospects. As noted President Vladimir Putin, Russia has withstood this unprecedented pressure. Now the situation is stabilizing, although, of course, not all risks have already passed. In any case, we will not be weakened," the Foreign Minister said.

    According to the minister, the ruling circles of the West are not embarrassed that anti-Russian sanctions are already beginning to harm ordinary citizens of their own states, economic dynamics in the United States and many European countries are deteriorating, inflation and unemployment are growing.

    Tool to contain Russia

    The Foreign Minister also accused the United States and NATO of fueling anti-Russian sentiment in Ukraine for a long time, viewing it as a tool to contain Moscow.
    According to him, in the issue of the crisis in Ukraine, we should talk about the long-term destructive line of the Western countries led by the United States, one of the components of which was the reckless expansion of NATO to the East, despite political commitments not to expand the alliance.

    "As you know, these promises remained empty words. All these years, NATO infrastructure has been moving closer to the Russian borders," Lavrov added, recalling that Washington and Brussels rejected Russia's initiatives on security guarantees.

    The fate of Ukraine is indifferent

    The United States and the European Union, according to Lavrov, intend to fight Russia "to the last Ukrainian," they are indifferent to the fate of Ukraine as an independent country. NATO countries, he stressed, are doing everything to prevent the completion of the special operation in Ukraine by reaching political agreements between Moscow and Kyiv.

    The US and NATO should stop supplying weapons to Kyiv if they really want to resolve the Ukrainian crisis, the head of the Foreign Ministry said. According to him, the Ukrainian people do not need Stinger MANPADS and Javelin anti-tank missiles, but urgent humanitarian issues.
    "Secondly, it is necessary that Kyiv stop cynical provocations, including in the information space," Lavrov added.

    He noted that the Ukrainian armed formations, using civilians as a "human shield", carry out "barbarous shelling of cities", and also "with animal cruelty" mock Russian prisoners of war, publishing this on the Internet.
    "And at the same time, with the help of their Western patrons and the global media controlled by the Westerners, they accuse the Russian army of war crimes. They shift, as we say, the responsibility for what is happening from a sick head to a healthy one," the minister added.

    According to him, it is high time for the West to stop unconditionally "whitewashing" and covering Kyiv, otherwise Washington, Brussels and other Western capitals should be aware of the responsibility for complicity in bloody crimes.

    nomadski wrote:Just a quick note about any possible external incursion into Ukraine Western region by Poland / US or Romania etc. As GarryB said ".... Should be fun to discuss that, with Russian permission..." IMHO, there can be no possible way to distinguish supplies, movements in minute detail, on the ground, to ensure that no supplies were meant for Ukrainian side, even if Russia agreed to partition with Poland. Since their priority alliances, are with US, and US aims to make Ukraine war, into war against Russia. And not simply territorial expansion of Poland.

    Therefore any forces entering Ukraine, must be treated as hostile, and destroyed at the most efficient moment ( at point of collection or accumulation, before dispatch and well before deployment by forward units.)


    You totally do not understand the current relationship between Poland and Ukraine.

    Ukraine controls Poland.



    Are you a clown or the entire circus?

    The Ukraine can't even control a single territory filled with russophobic sentiment that was growing for more than 100 years.

    Poland is controlled by the US just like the Ukraine. You both get played and used as human shields just for the slightest chance that the russian bear gets tired or injured.

    History repeats itself and just like in WW2 there is a good chance that Poland will in some way or form over-commit itself and seize to exist. You should be really careful since your entire meaning of existence within NATO is nothing but being human-shield for the US.

    You house american nukes on your soil, if anything starts from your polish lands where do you think Russia will send some of their tactical nukes? You house ABM-shields and nuclear weapons of the US. You are literally a hostage with stockholme syndrome. To the vast majority of westerners you are seen as inferior but still many polish believe they are westerners. You will never be accepted by them and your own actions make distant to us slavic people. You sit between two chairs and about to fall on your arse.

    Well I wouldn't say that, Britain and France went to war over Poland after all

    But the idea of Russia and Poland coming to blows over unpunished Banderites is absurd.

    This whole story reminds me of the Russian civil war, where it was the same thing give or take. The Bolsheviks entered Kharkov to support an uprising there against the UNR, and then took over most of the rest of the Ukraine. Pilsudski then allied with Petlyura, and sent the Polish army in, and we had the Polish-Soviet war.

    For now it's still a theoretical possibility. We have to see how the war develops.

    Wonder if that's what they did and this is just someone's else's kid they ended up with, or if they're a real family.

    She has St. Georgian Ribbon from 2013 and she has anti-nazi/anti-Rinat Akmhetov posts too from 2012, no Ukroshit, just boomerish crap everyone post on VK.

    At least she is not a nazi and in this day Ukrainians would be the ones judging her, not Russians.

    If you think about it, how the **** would Azov fill Azovstal with their families - most of the Azov are not even from Mariupol, plenty of Western Ukrainians are serving there.

    But I agree that Russia should be very careful who is leaving Azovstal now and I hope civilians will be able to identify and testify to what happened.

    Haha, never thought you will go so far with assumptions. Just read that article, she is a Russian-speaking woman with an 11-year-old kid, it would take 5 minutes for Russia to check it, knowing details are available now. Metrics, proof of birth, marriage certificate?

    You will go crazy if you will assume that all Ukrainian civilians are crypto-nazis. There will be thousands of similar situations like this and it's important not to alienate them as they will be the ones living there, not some colonists.

    She has St. Georgian Ribbon from 2013 and she has anti-nazi/anti-Rinat Akmhetov posts too from 2012, no Ukroshit, just boomerish crap everyone post on VK.

    At least she is not a nazi and in this day Ukrainians would be the ones judging her, not Russians.

    If you think about it, how the **** would Azov fill Azovstal with their families - most of the Azov are not even from Mariupol, plenty of Western Ukrainians are serving there.

    But I agree that Russia should be very careful who is leaving Azovstal now and I hope civilians will be able to identify and testify to what happened.

    She bears an awful resemblance to that Ukrainian sniper woman and shares the same first name. Different surname, but that might be because she got married to her Azov husband and took his family name.

    Well, the leader of Azov did say that a lot of marriages were happening in Azovstal' clown

    Wonder if that's what they did and this is just someone's else's kid they ended up with, or if they're a real family.

    Haha, never thought you will go so far with assumptions. Just read that article, she is a Russian-speaking woman with an 11-year-old kid, it would take 5 minutes for Russia to check it, knowing details are available now. There is no hiding. Tho on Ukrainian Cadaver Group (pardon the name) there was a video of one Ukrainian woman shot dead in Mariupol. According to the one filming - she was a sniper who killed 7 guys. She was put into the carpet that was tied around the stick and "evacuated" for whatever reason...

    You will go crazy if you will assume that all Ukrainian civilians are crypto-nazis. There will be thousands of similar situations like these couple. This why Russia got the lists for Ukrainians and foreigners.

    To me it looked like the same person but then again, I didn't study it in detail.

    The guys on the ground who captured them are better placed to find out if they are true civilians or not, much more than any of us online experts.
    I would assume a proportion of the fighters would be from Mariupol since the unit was formed there was it not? Also having all the privileges as they do, they could have easily based their immediate families there with them.

    Either way, if any of the “civilians” are found to be members of Azov, they don't deserve any mercy, actual civilians will of course get help as they have since the beginning of the SO.

    The Premiere of British Virgin Islands has been arrested by the U.S. Apparently he was into drug trafficking though U.S authorities have not provided any credible evidence to support their case.

    I was thinking if taking a leaf out of the U.S military presence in Poland and Ukraine, Russia can reach out to the virgin Islands and offer them some security by placing a few IRBMs and S-500 regiments out there.

    I have heard analysis that the Kiev regime is not expending its best troops first but sending in the reserves. This makes sense
    to me.

    Conscripts are likely in less of a position to say no as they may not have been issued with ammo yet.

    That would be funny, if not true

    Can't be true.... Hollyweird can't make movies for 1 million dollars... that wouldn't even pay the script writers to write the script...

    And what will happen to American aircraft carriers, destroyers, amphibious assault ships if China uses DF-21 and DF-26?
    You seem to have forgotten that ...

    When the subs are trying to sink Chinese ships and subs the US Surface fleet will heroically run away...

    Therefore any forces entering Ukraine, must be treated as hostile, and destroyed at the most efficient moment ( at point of collection or accumulation, before dispatch and well before deployment by forward units.)

    The only way this could possibly work is if a ceasefire had already been agreed and put in place and boundaries set and Orc forces start withdrawing from places they will not be allowed to stay in if they are nazis and also not locals... but even then HATO might just use such an agreement to restock without being fired at and then restart the conflict so even then it would be patchy...

    Man seeing some of the footage of the carnage in Donbas, so sad that those young men get suckered into fighting for some fucker to get rich.

    And that is what it is... their brutal deaths mean nothing at all in terms of what they think they are fighting for.

    You're just complaining that you didn't see the missile in action, and then pretending it's undeniable proof that Russia doesn't have it in large quantities. Martyanov pointed out the obvious, why spend the hermes when the S-8 (S-13) does the job very well?

    Worse than that, the S-8 would be used against the sort of area targets no PGM of any type would be used against so what he is arguing about doesn't even make any sense.

    It is like showing video of PKM fire from Russian forces and claiming it proves they have run out of RPG rockets... must be a supply issue... Rolling Eyes

    What do you guys think of possibility of Ukrainians pushing their luck on "Doolittle raid" style attack on May 9th ?

    They will be expected to try and if they are caught it might end up like operation eagle claw...

    If he wasn't part of Azov or wasn't involved in fighting (what else he was doing there?) then his idiotic pictures will mean **** all. It's not a cancel culture. Separatists themselves had some ex-nazis amongst them, it doesn't mean they killed and tortured people or continue to practice it (Pavel Gubarev for example)

    True but they will look at all the things that have been posted including his social media pages to see if he has been present or participated in anything worthy of note, and can use a current photo of his face for facial recognition software to search through an enormous number of photos and video frames to find him or people like him, so he had better hope he is clean.

    Time to discover the "conventional" capabilities of Poseidon??

    Ironically Russia does have the answer.... Otvet... answer... a rocket propelled anti sub torpedo of quite modern design and about a 20km range for the torpedo itself while the rocket delivers the torpedo to the target area up to 50km away from the launch platform at about mach 2.5.

    The target sub would get no warning it has been detected and is under attack until the torpedo splashes down nearby... maybe within a few kms of the subs location.

    It is what the Soviets developed instead of super long range ship and sub fired torpedoes...

    Faster and cheaper and smaller and lighter than the 650mm long range torpedoes.

    Good catch. Should be easy to check if they will give up. Their OPSEC sucks

    They were so proud of their anti Russian stance and wanted to show the west what wonderful foot soldiers they would make.

    Karma is a bitch.

    You can bet posts on twitter et all were kept by Russia when found and stored away for just this situation... so deleting your history wont help you... (to the guilty... not anyone on this forum....).

    Both of them are simple factory workers. People of the land. The common clay of Ukraine. You know… morons.

    Must be true because you are quoting the single best movie in the whole damn world... Blazing saddles...

    If you think about it, how the **** would Azov fill Azovstal with their families - most of the Azov are not even from Mariupol, plenty of Western Ukrainians are serving there.

    But I agree that Russia should be very careful who is leaving Azovstal now and I hope civilians will be able to identify and testify to what happened.

    Talk to them individually and they will find the victims and the non victims even though all will claim to be victims...

    The Premiere of British Virgin Islands has been arrested by the U.S. Apparently he was into drug trafficking though U.S authorities have not provided any credible evidence to support their case

    They probably let him get the job because he is guilty, and told him to do as he was told or they would expose him... sounds like he wasn't being anti Russian enough so he is gone... no surprises at all really.

    More Western propaganda, like how Biden was saying that Putin will conduct chemical attacks

    A partial mobilization is not out of the question however. But it would be done on the low-down.

    Shows that deliveries are ongoing. All the ones UA operated by late February (30-40 pcs?) were shot down long ago, the ongoing shootdowns since are of fresh deliveries.
