    How long before DPR and LPR get Frog supplied artillery?

    If u mean Frog-7 forget it it's very old out of service and very inaccurate. Tochka and smerch is good enough for them. Or get Belarus to send them Polonez.

    Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany: Kyiv to receive first PzH 2000 howitzers in June

    “7 self-propelled howitzers [PzH 2000] that will be handed over to us – we will receive these systems sometime on June 22; and self-propelled anti-aircraft systems, the so-called Gepard,” Andriy Melnyk told the Ukrainian media agency.

    I think Putin needs to get on television and make it very clear that if Germany gives even one bullet to Ukraine on June 22, that the German people will beg for the treatment they received in April and May 1945

    So what are some theories about the change of tone around Zelensky ?

    I don't think they are going to tear him down or replace him just yet. Unless they have someone else that they are really high on. Maybe it is all a distancing act. The Anglo axis just wants to distance itself from the military loss.

    When is the next election ?

    I would actually hate to be him.  The west has an unethical history of martyring someone once they are no longer useful.  The question is, after they decide he should no longer be around what happens? Prison? Putsch and violent death, assassination by a "pro Russian traitor" to facilitate the arms scam.  Sorry, but 55 billion of my tax dollars going to Ukraine with little oversight as to where these weapons end up is a scam.  

    Its not your tax dollars, its mostly money stolen from the rest of the world through the dollar denominated trading system

    What a deranged idiot... Gods above, but I so blessed that my parents left that benighted shithole when I was a child and we escaped to the antipodes... The UK has become a pathetic little nation, ruled by small silly people with no appreciation of their true position in the hierarchy of things. The grass-roots common British people are great, but their ruling elites are just so worthless, arrogant and in-bred stupid. They are in for a hard landing when all of this is done... Laughing

    For 2 weeks now, the west has been distancing themselves from Zelensky, the US have been saying crazy things like we don't know how the 40billion has been spent or where the weapons we sent have gone, or what the Ukrainian military strategy is. Which of course is utter BS. The US knows exactly whats going on, they have known since day one how the battle has been going, providing airborne, satellite and other intelligence, plus "advice".

    In other words, the blame game has started in the media.

    Yesterday another 3 Ukro kamikazes were shot down, which made me conclude.
    All the planes killed in the last days, are either Su-25 or MiG-29.
    Both can be in theory supplied from third countries like Bulgaria, Georgia, and Poland.
    All the countries mentioned have some parts stocks - in the case of Georgia, they can even produce them.
    And last but not least, both the planes can operate with improvised airstrips, let it be a field in the case of Su-25.
    Both present very high readiness considering the situation, yet it won't help them much due to the absolute dominance of the Russian forces. It can start, but won't land on its own, rather with Russkie missile on board ...

    https://www.stalkerzone.org/peace-treaty-for-ukraine/
    There will be no peace treaty, according to the author. Mood in the Kremlin and the public is against it.[/quote]

    [quote]

    There will be no peace treaty




    The goal and idea of the United States and partners is primitive – to take a pause, prepare Ukraine for a new confrontation, weaken and shake up the situation inside Russia, while maintaining economic pressure. No one is going to lift sanctions and return stolen currency reserves. They sincerely believe that, having stopped military operations, they will be able to discuss exclusion from the lists for years on one item, demanding concessions for each, as it was almost 8 years with the Minsk Agreements.



    Thats a good article. there is zero incentive for russia , to negotiate anything with puppets in kiev
    under control by NATO , any cease of fire or "peace deal" ,that allows NATO or Europe to keep their control and influence over any city in ukraine , means an open door for the collective altlantic west , to use the "cease of fire" or "peace deal" to rearm ukraine ,provide more weapons , and recruit and infiltrate more soldiers. For Russia government , what they facing in ukraine should be seen as no less that an attempt of NATO for the total destruction and collapse of russia.. The only thing worse that what nato did in ukraine would be a nuclear strike on moscow to decapitate its leadership..
    because the attack of the west , was not only military ,but economical too , and biological attack plans for the future too, using the biolabs pentagon build in ukraine..

    So anything less , that unconditional surrender of ukraine government and military and demand them give away all their weapons , with the arrest of the neo nazis parties for racist crimes , and the arrest of kiev parliament and zelensky , and the full control of all ukraine , or at least 80% to 90% of it.. Anything less ,that reversing the coup of 2014, and taking full control of vast majority of ukraine ,
    will only help nato to restart the war again at a later date and with a better retrained and rearmed military.

    what russia should do there is neither take over of land , under russian flag.. but instead the creation of several new nations, with new flag a federation of regions . Ukraine needs to become a full protectorate under full russia military control and protection. and novorrosiya and malorossiya created . the name ukraine needs to be erased from russian and ukraine education books ,in order to block any kind of new euromaidan.

    Airborne drones have certainly played a roll in Ukraine.

Sorry, but 55 billion of my tax dollars going to Ukraine with little oversight as to where these weapons end up is a scam.

    Obviously has to be novachok or polonium.

    I am against the death penalty, but I would be all for him doing hard labor for the next 20 to 25 years, ideally in the Donbass where he and his fellow mercs will help clear away the rubble and rebuild the cities and settlements that they helped destroy.

    I am against the death penalty for innocent people but this guy went to a country with the express purpose of overthrowing and subdewing the Ukrainians of the Donbass, which he and his compatriots claimed were Russians invading Ukraine. He has spent the last few years shelling and killing civilians... now he is getting his.

    He can avoid the death penalty as soon as he brings all the people he helped kill back to life and undoes the destruction they caused.

    Looks like he quit UK military on March, it wasn't some dusty war veteran. I am no conspiracy theorist, but it does look fishy.

    Sounds like a bored soldier looking for excitement so he quit his position in the UK army and went the the Ukraine to be a hero and kill some Russians because from what he had heard it was probably like shooting fish in a barrel.

    Lots of New Zealanders signed up for a war in Europe in 1914 because it was an adventure... and it will probably be over by the time they get there so they can drink and sleep with sexy european women and visit some places before coming home... reality was of course very different.

    Maybe, or he will flee to Florida. I mean, he will be more useful dead to the US than him being alive and all. But if they do kill him off, it may raise too many eyebrows.

    Did you have to repost that conversation to make that comment?

    My guess though is that he is shot by a "pro-Russian" of some flavor because Ukraine wants to become a one party junta and the west wants to justify giving Ukraine even more guns.

    Please take the time to edit your post to remove the large conversation attached to it... and Seph too please...

    If u mean Frog-7 forget it it's very old out of service and very inaccurate. Tochka and smerch is good enough for them. Or get Belarus to send them Polonez.

    That is what I thought he meant at first, but Caesar is a French system, so Frog in that sense.

    Plenty of other pows who aren’t mercenary nazi scum who can clear rubble.

    There should not be a shortage...

    A semiotic religion, yes, that brought knowledge, order and discipline to a group of scattered pagan peoples. Do you believe that the pagans were innocent and did not murder? Those who defend the pagans remind me of the idiots who defend the indigenous in America. They speak of the cruelty of the Spanish but not of the Aztec beasts that killed and sacrificed innocents.

    Not all Russian nobility were Germanic. Was Ivan the Terrible or Alexander Nevsky German? It was a viking nobility mixed with the local nobility of the Slavs.

    The SAM has to cost at least 10x the price of that rinky dink drone.

    It is doing what it was designed to do and they likely made millions of those... and they are still making them, so Russian workers get to work and Russian soldiers are protected from enemy systems.

    The money they would make selling a single Javelin on the black market would cover the cost of thousands of SA-13s.

    I wonder if that's the way of the future or just a gimmick?

    The problem is obvious... decent air defence systems can deal with drones and current experience means drone defence is only going to get much better with new jammers and lasers and new short range missiles etc etc as well as gun launched airburst shells...

    Drones are useful but you don't want to overcommit.

    For China they are probably a great idea because their main enemy is the west which is still air power focussed so their ability to deal with thousands of Chinese drones will be pathetic and expensive.

    This thread is going to get shorter over the next hour or so... you will be notified as to where the missing posts are going in good time.
