    The Russian army is building up a grouping in the Krivoy Rog direction, - UA general staff

    Didn´t know that the fake state has someting like a general staff left...  Wink

    Anyway. This could be possible. I thought about liberating Krivoy Rog after Dnjepropetrovsk and Zaporoshye, when the Army is on their way to liberate Nikolaev (coming from the SE and NE at the same time). But liberating it first and therefore threatening to cut off Dnjepropetrovsk and Zaporoshye while keeping pressure on Nikolaev could be a good move.

    Tons of cars were imported from the UK, no matter the technical difference.
    As long as you used to be an EU member, a car registered in UK could have been used in any other member state without any problems.
    With some legal catches, it could have been even registered in other EU member states, without changing the steering wheel side and lighting.
    As those were inexpensive, a right hand driving cars became notorious in the poorer parts of Europe, as your used cars were much less expensive than in let's say Germany.
    And due to that, you can buy this kind of vehicles in Poland, Romania or Slovakia easily. SUVs are being shipped to Ukraine and used in the war zone without any documentation, without plates changed etc. Whole convoys can be easily spotted on routes in Poland loaded up with hundreds of SUVs.

    I remember the same guy pounding hard the MSM role in Biden elections, citing that there was a general ban for any discussion about his menthal/physical condition of a candidate. He literally roasted both Biden and the "independent journalism".

    And now something more interesting :

    At least 41 flights were performed by the Iranian transport aviation from Feb 24th to Moscow.

    Thanks to Germany's dumb FM Baerbock the nation has significantly worsened its relations with Turkey by taking sides for Greece and abandoning Germany's neutral stance. She also made another mistake by meeting with the pro-Kurdish party HDP. Now Turkey has even more reasons to get closer to Russia.
    Previously Baerbock has showed her concerns over this picture

    which demonstrated a big setback for Nato's unity, but now she is not even trying to win Turkey back. Job well done! pwnd

    Ukraine's world-renowned, infallible (according to literally all western media) military intelligence is on record saying that the person to the left is not actually Vladimir Putin, but a body double.

    The apparent size and fin layout looks like Hellfire to me.

    That light grey color seems odd though, they typically come in black or dark green or so (like the British Brimstone equivalent)

    But nevermind, someone will positively ID it soon enough, this was just my first thought.

    Edit: there was word few months ago that Sweden sent "Hellfire" ground-based batteries for naval use to UA (ie short range ASM stuff). No idea what the missiles look like, but that color deffy has a "naval" feel to it.

    So a Brimstone dud, I guess. But the color stills feels off to me. Are light naval grey ones in use with the UK armed forces?

    I remember a few of these fell uselessly in Syria too . The reason may be that this missile is more like a dart , with minimal ability to manoeuver  . A large Rocket and small control surfaces . Because Radar has narrow field of view and it has to get there quickly , or looses sight of target . Even if aircraft gives initial coordinates and points into right direction . This one likely ground launched , without any initial guidance by other Radar . Not pointed at target and got lost . Maybe Americans do not share target info with the Brits . Want to sell their own cra***p  to ukis . Or maybe the target location changed or  Brits  did not give info to ukis , in fear of the Russians ! Or maybe the Ukis are incompetent ! Looks like this missile failed to find target , avionics in front section were self - destructed . Fell to Earth hard , damaging area away from camera ( the interesting area with logo ) . The person buried it , in a way not to show damage . Implying intact capture , to force Brits to stop sending them .


    Edit : notice fracture of upright fin / fail - compared to other fins , consistent with belly landing and not nose impact . Also damp soil dug out pit compared to dry soil .
