    A poster in this forum had uploaded a video of Roma girls and women being flogged in broad daylight in Kiev by the average Ukrainian joe.

    Several posters posted links, videos of how Ukrainian authorities didn't allow Asian, African students to leave the country along with Ukrainians when the conflict started. Instead students of colour were used as human shields.

    Ukraine shelled Luhansk,  Donbass with the sole intention of killing Russians.

    Behaviour of this nature towards Russians, people of colour, Jews  is exactly what Nazis prescribe. Ukraine was always a Nazi state. At least communism doesn't call for the de humanizing of communities.

    Nazism isn't defined by the waving of flags, wearing of tattoos or pinning SS death-heads to yer combat gear.  Its defined by adopting an ethnic supremacist mindset that extolls superiority of the tribe, zero tolerance of opposing ideologies, use of extreme political violence to supress all resistance to the official narratives, the official recognition of an "inferior" peoples onto whom all regime failures are blamed, and official encouragement for the persecution of that hated group, up to and including large scale killings.

    So yeah, Bandera-worshipping NATO-controlled nationalist Ukraine most definitely is a Nazi state in every sense of the word.  angry

    Another example of why tanks without infantry support are sitting ducks.

    The Russian invasion has been very armor heavy, and that leads to events like this.


    Still hits the infantry position...

    More evidence of Russian army inadequate tactics in the battle field ,
    this is the reason why russians tactics are wrong ,they have been trying to win the war
    with artillery alone , just blind targeting ukros positions in trenches and a huge vast majority
    of the strikes miss  the trenches.. and to make things worse , the ukros use a lot of fake decoys
    to lure strikes on false targets ,and make them waste artillery.

    when your tactics are wrong , your  enemies can delay or stop your offensive with superior use of strike drones , that directly strike at russian positions or guide precision artillery ,that ukrania get for free from nato causing massive losses on russian military .




    Russia have a lot more artillery and bombs power , but ukraine have far more precision and air drone support.. this is the sad reality of the battlefield. the russian tactics are inadequate for fighting in a country that nato is controlling their operations and providing them with endless precision weapons.

    Russia lack of air domination , lack of enough strike drones to provide their military with 24 hours air support with dozens of drones at least protecting them , , lack of enough  artillery guidance drones  
    is the reason they facing so much problems to fight in ukraine.. their artillery tactics are totally obsolete for 21 century.   it is sad to see how most of the video of the battle field uploaded online ,that show precision strikes ,comes from ukraine.  when russia upload the few videos videos they have of use of their drones , you see evidence of a lot of missing strikes..  

    russia dont need more man power , what russia needs is better tactics , higher quality of combat at distance ,with higher precision..  ukraine is even using super cheap civilian quadcopter with grenades
    that they dropped above russian army positions.  in summary Russian tactics in ukraine are completely inadequate for the war they are facing there.

    Just get those orland-10 and give precision missiles , even 1 precision powerful missile , is better
    than what russia is now doing ,  arming them with 4 unguided tiny bombs that have to be fired from very high altitude and don't have the power to disable any armor.  only for soft targets , if they get a lucky shot.. immho not worth of it..  russia idea of arming orlan-10 with unguided rocket is bad idea ,
    if they can't modify it for precision bombs , then they just leave it for spying and for guiding artillery.
    than trying to get their drone too close to ukraine positions ,to align it with ukraine positions , and becoming an easy target for a manpad.

    another mistake is russia use of hellicopters,  sending them in front of their army , when they should be behind ,they are expensive , and all those ka-52 weapons are super obsolete crap.. those super slow missiles , takes an eternity to hit their targets.. i have seen russia missing to hit moving targets
    several times. Russia need fire and forget missiles , like those brimston missiles of uk.. or replace all those missiles their choppers use and replace it with 4-6 cheap strike drones..  that will be sent first , to scout enemy positions and the hellicopter controls them.

    All those soviet  era generals ,specially shoigu and gerasimov, needs to be removed and replaced by younger talent with good experience in combat. their tactics are not the best ,for this kind of war ,they facing.. this failed tactics , is what made armenia lose territory . to azerbaijan too.  
    drones rule the skies , and they need to be used correctly , with precision weapons , or at least to guide precision artillery.. unguided bombs , this is only for world war 2.. or for when you have total dominationo of the airspace.. as it was in syria.. in ukraine russia , don't have any dominaton , or any superiority , the russian airforce is scared to fly far away of their controlled cities , what they do is launch missiles in stand off positions.

    in summary ..
    NATO trench warfare is back , only because of russia weaknes with drones and ultra precision bombing. NATO developed trench warfare in ukraine , because they knew Russia weakness with ultra high precision strike weapons and russia weakness with drones , that have very few in comparison to what NATO have. None of those tactics trench tactics will have worked , in a nato country , that they have lots of ultra high precision weapons , lots of loitering munition and lots of tv guided missiles that can hit moving targets and advanced trenches with ultra high precision.   Had russia have plenty of drones with ultra precision of missiles ,  tv guided bombs ,loitering munition , and plenty of ultra precision artillery , those trenches of ukraine will have collapsed in just 3 days and ukraine army forced to hide inside cities ,where they can be encircled .

    the author of video , show exactly the problem of russia military in ukraine.. NATO developed advance trench warfare to counter russian firepower and airforce , knowing well russia limitations
    with drones and ultra precision strikes , and the russian army response? they counter this excelent
    defense by just throwing more artillery at the problem.. this is why russia is so so slow . No
    like i said , is not more soldiers the problem to speed up russia military advance . the problem is completely inadequate and obsolete tactics , from trying to win the war with artillery alone , to very inadequate air cover support to the ground troops and convoys of armor.

    US shifting media focus to Africa as ukraine losing despite 55 billion donation

    US looking to lash out/distract/payback African countries for not following orders

    Ten weeks after most African nations declined to join the west’s anti-Russia crusade, the US is set to pass a law to “hold accountable African governments and their officials” who they say “are complicit in aiding [Russian] malign influence & activities.”

    I think it is impossible to give Nazi salute , for Azov member , missing an arm . Or to Goose - step , Nazi fashion , missing a leg ! But what to do with them ? Some need a court of law to decide their fate . I do not !  The picture that Hole posted ( Azov in the bus )  tells a complete story . The first guy with Nazi tatoo is unrepentant . He has fight in his eyes . If released , he will do it again . The guy behind him ,beany cap , wants simply out of the situation , an escape , his tactic is say nothing and keep quiet ! The guy behind him is repentant , he is pacified , will not fight again . The same for the guy , with bottle in his hand , he regrets and will not fight again . The guy next to him in baseball hat , thinks of defending his actions , justifying them , but unlikely to fight again !  ......see , no need for court of law ! They can not hide the truth . It is written in their faces .

    I have called out dumb russian mistakes,

    You call giving the Orcs the chance to surrender a mistake and also Russians shooting people that shoot at them rather than laying down their arms and surrendering genocide...

    How many western conflicts would you say they went in too soft trying to minimise deaths of their opponents... not many if any.

    In fact the US slaughtered Iraqi troops retreating from Kuwaite as the US demanded and the Iraqis complied with and they still massacred them... they even put it in a video game and called it genocide but in the game it was the evil Russians that killed the retreating troops of the enemy.

    Hilarious... which is why Russia wont worry too much what the west says any more... why should they?

    I really cannot fault an enemy for failure if they did their best despite being put in a situation they had no hope of winning.

    They had 8 years to implement the agreed peace process and they spent that time shelling their own people and you think they made no mistakes.

    Perhaps genocide is the solution... starting in the west...

    Your rather narrow sighted aren't you.

    Funny comment considering western Kool aide clearly makes you blind.

    It's a numbers game. There are millions of Ukrainians who can be combat trained and be used in a nearly endless meat grinder, until the Russian economy starts to suffer from constant war expenditure.

    No there are not. Orcs are surrendering including their hard core nazi ones. How long before the nazis further back realise they are running out of cannon fodder and their chances of getting sent to the front get higher and higher and they bolt to the west.  Conscripts wont send conscripts to the front like nazis do.


    Annexation wont solve the NATO encroachment problem, all you are doing is moving your border closer to NATO.

    Putin wont be annexing anything... the nazis and banderites will be removed and the rest can vote their own future with a range of very specific options put before them if they want peace.

    They can federate, come up with a fancy name, but they need to be a buffer zone between NATO and the Russian Federation.

    Finland is joining HATO eventually if not now, so Russian HATO borders are going to be a reality... no buffer states required.

    So the grenade/bomb is dropped. Take ten such drones and you got a mini carpet bombing.

    Excellent idea... it looks like a 40mm under barrel grenade with plastic tail fins added to make it land point first. Cheap and simple and already in mass production... just need to bypass the built in safety... perhaps electrically fire the propellant stub on the way down or make a version with the propellant section replaced with more HE and modify the impact fuse so when it is released it pulls a safety pin like some iron bombs use for safe handling with aircraft.

    Why is it considered trolling? Why the hell aren't the Russians putting more forces to take the city? It's a strategic location, especially for supply lines.

    What use is taking and holding cities.... fighting for them would be very bloody and costly for both sides... and would tie up a lot of Russian forces which would be a waste.

    Better to have them out and mobile.. let the orcs come out away from their meat shields to play in open country where air power and artillery can do the work.

    I don't know if it's possible for Russia but I hope that in future they will abolish the conscript system.

    Why?

    For the west war is fun and games, but for countries where war and full mobilisation is not about supporting Americas next war, but about national survival then having a population that can use and respects fire arms is a good thing.

    India has fought so many large & medium conflicts but conscription has never been imposed although a provision for military conscription exists in the Indian constitution. It's a general conscription has always been unpopular among India military planners.

    Which explains Indias stance on the issue but why do you think Russia should do the same?

    magic solution to fix it but a good step to compensate for the lack of male population would be to recruit females in large quantity.

    It is not an accident that the countries with the most experience of real war have the lowest number of females in their military forces.

    Pretending women are the same as men is ridiculous... and femenists agree... when was the last time a femenist demanded women were put on the draft?

    There's no shortage of military age men in India & yet Indian govt. has taken active steps to attract female population to join the military. Now in every military sector females are recruited including combat unites.

    OK so India has done something... how about looking at how that has gone so far before deciding to just blindly copy it.

    US experience of women on combat ships is interesting... during Desert Storm a US ship had to turn back to the US because it had a large percentage of females in the crew and as soon as they got their orders to head to the middle east for war they all got pregnant... I remember they called it the Love Ship.... after a TV show of the same name.

    Russia could have done the same & they actually need females to join in large numbers to fulfil the required quantity of troops but sadly they've turned full 180 degree on their rabid communism & now they are full-blown cuckservatives.

    Russia has not had problems with womens rights like the west has and does.

    Russia has conscription so it doesn't need any women at all to choose to join.

    Russia currently has no problems with numbers and training... their training facilities are state of the art and probably better than most HATO training centres.... the Germans built their first one and Russian companies completed them and built other training centres for the other military districts.

    Ukrops are also in the same page. Ukrops are enlisting male kids & 50+ older men while sending their fit & healthy women to Europe to become whores & strip club dancers. Unless she has kid there's no reason that a military aged females can't do some menial military tasks. Com on! even YPG from Middle-East has female fighters slaughtering ISIS.

    Don't confuse a few capable and dedicated young lasses with the general population... most women would be bloody useless on a battlefield... many men are too.

    Even with training women could be amazing but equally they could be terrible.

    Wiki still lists a longer range for excalibur rounds. I have wondered why they don't use discarding sabot rounds for longer range, for example, a 122mm round in a sabot. Should be able to get 8-10 km more range.

    Range means nothing without accuracy and knowing where the enemy targets are located.

    Apparently, the "heroes" do not have the strength to sit out until the morning, they want to eat. The surrender resumed, the night shift began.

    People on the ground in Mariupol describe it as „By nightfall, "Azov" climbed from all the cracks, like cockroaches“

    More likely they watched what happened to the first group and when they didn't hear the volley shots of firing squads the rest realised the Russians are far more humaine and civilised than they were or the US or the UK or French or Germans in their turn ever were to any enemy.



    Also, how would Russian helicopters deal with starstreak missiles which are optically guided?

    Remaining low and fast is normal procedure, and using radar to detect vehicles at max range and using optics to examine said vehicles to determine the threat level would be normal.

    So NATO VIPs stuck in Azovstal were just propaganda then?


    HATO VIPs would hardly come out first... send expendibles first... the EU way....

    Its defined by adopting an ethnic supremacist mindset that extolls superiority of the tribe, zero tolerance of opposing ideologies, use of extreme political violence to supress all resistance to the official narratives, the official recognition of an "inferior" peoples onto whom all regime failures are blamed, and official encouragement for the persecution of that hated group, up to and including large scale killings.

    A coincidence it also describes the west?

    I expect it to be a lot longer mil. operation than any in RF history.

    No time limit on this job... getting it right is important... you should be pleased nazis are being removed from your home country...

    GB, do u still insist that Russia doesn't want any part of Ukraine?

    Putin is still saying he wants a denazified demilitarised neighbour... if they want their own independence he will not demand they join the RF, but it sounds rather like the people of the south and east didn't enjoy the nazis from the west of the country and their games and bs, and they might decide to join the RF themselves.

    Whether Russia accepts them straight away or demands a cool down period for them to sort themselves out and make clear decisions is another matter, but it will be their choice even if some options wont be on the table. (ie Russia wont offer EU or HATO membership as options for them of course).

    US shifting media focus to Africa as ukraine losing despite 55 billion donation

    US looking to lash out/distract/payback African countries for not following orders

    Ten weeks after most African nations declined to join the west’s anti-Russia crusade, the US is set to pass a law to “hold accountable African governments and their officials” who they say “are complicit in aiding [Russian] malign influence & activities.”

    Excellent... as long as the US keeps doing what it is doing Russia is going to find plenty of potential trade partners around the world.

    The guy next to him in hat , thinks of defending his actions , justifying them , but unlikely to fight again !  ......see , no need for court of law ! They can not hide the truth . It is written in their faces .

    In the Donbass they will find that the Russians they thought they were fighting were just Ukrainians like them who happen to speak Russian... for which they have been killing these last 8 years... hopefully they get to build things and restore the damage they did...even if they can't bring the dead back to life.

    I can't read people like that. I would rather trust law enforcement to deal with them, they are not a military matter now.

    Even amputees can help in rebuilding the effort in Donbas.

    Russkies evacuated a battery of M777.

    https://t.me/levigodman/2129

    Special operation of evacuation, supervised by the SBU, looks performed perfectly.

    The evacuation team consisted of a Zala drone if I am not mistaken.

    ... and looks like more of them have been evacuated ...

    For russia military it will be on their interest to keep silence about any VIP NATO officers captured.
    and deny capturing any .and only showing them , to the media at the ideal time.
    what kind of benefits russia could get doing this?

    1) to not show their cards to NATO , so that the west don't kindnap russians , like family members of
    russian politicians ,  in order to trade them for their generals.. also the west could hijack a russian plane with 200 civilians and threaten them to kill all of them , if they dont released.
    by staying quiet , nato will not know what russia captured or if they are dead or missing in action
    somewhere in ukraine.

    2) By keeping silence for now , and arrest them , without trial , without jury ,without any media or layer or diplomat  will allow russia enough time to interrogate them, and get every info they have , if for example they are told ,that no one knows they are alive and that there will be no trading for them. this also allow russia to avoid any pressure from united nations ,any lawyer, or human rights to visit them that could buy their silence so they dont cooperate.

    3)Also if they capture any vip nato officer ,they can show them , during political elections in the west.

    in short there is a lot of reasons why to stay in silence  , so they don't pressured to allow them talk
    to their families , by keeping them in secret , they could be forced to cooperate if they feel , nobody knows they are in a prison in russia or alive.   Also to prevent them of being assasinated in prison ,
    by hired criminals, sothey dont talk.

    Video above illustrate the quality strikes problems with russia drones in ukraine ,they using unguided bombs and missing their targets a lot in ukraine. in the last link ,they missed to hit an american artillery .  russia desperately to produce a lot more precision strikes drones in very big numbers .
    of the like of orion and sirius.  plus mass produce thousands of kamikazy drones. in the video above
    russia airforce not only missed the american artillery , but also its operators got the chance to run in the other direction. Rolling Eyes killing an operator of artillery is a big deal , this are people that takes months to train in the use of artillery..

    A lot of shitbags need to be killed and you don't want to risk your troops too much while doing it so slow and steady it is

    Being stuck with subcontinent full of Nazis to feed and police would be a disaster on a suicidal scale

    Those apes need to be composted first, every last one





    Gonzalo Lira claimed that the Russians making the war boring. No big news, just slowly blowing the shit out of the Nazis. The american puplic is loosing their interest.
    If this were a Netflix show it would be canceled next week. Very Happy
