    This is the basis for a general mobilization in case the need arises. Plus it will have a powerful effect in the patriotic education of the society.

    So, Ukrainian jets are completely denied to fly in Ukraine by Russian Airforce and PVO, but now they have HARM and maybe, big maybe, have fitted it on 2-4 jets and want to launch a mediocre missile with just max 150km range while S-400 can snipe it out of the sky before they can launch it?

    If they made some jet fighters able to launch this HARMs then they are basically sending them on a suicide mission just for a chance to hit something for Twitter giggles?

    I assume after calling HARM "mediocre" our Seig will come and run his mouth again. Laughing Laughing

    Colonel Ruslan Trihub, head of the Darnytsia territorial recruitment center (military enlistment office) in Kyiv, bitterly told that after the start of general mobilization, the flow of volunteers who wanted to fight in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine had critically dried up. According to the military commissar, if a few months ago “there were some difficulties due to the large flow of volunteers who wanted to get weapons and go to defend Ukraine,” now the picture is completely different.

    All the queues in the territorial centers that are shown on television are people who want to get a deferral, go through a medical commission, or those who came for some other issues. Out of a hundred volunteers, there will be about three - Trigub stated sadly.

    To get a range you mention, it needs to be released from about 15 000 m.
    Good luck climbing there having S-400 head-on:lol: Laughing

    1 - have not called up reserves.
    2 - these volunteers all have military experience
    3 - are used to hold the line in many areas. Including the Belarus border this is about 2,400 kms.
    4 - guarding the rear and lines of supply
    5 - this military action has revealed a shortage in the organization of actual infantry foot soldiers. Needed to clear urban and forested areas.

    Russian Defense Ministry: the number of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine has decreased by almost 550 people

    From July 8 to August 5, the number of foreign mercenaries in Ukraine decreased by 549 people, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said at a briefing.

    According to him, the number of foreigners taking part in the hostilities on the side of official Kyiv initially amounted to 2,741 people, and by August 5, only 2,192 people.

    At the same time, foreign military specialists continue to arrive on the territory of Ukraine, however, according to a representative of the Russian military department, their number does not cover the losses. Over the past weeks, another 175 "soldiers of fortune" have arrived, including 81 militants from Georgia, Konashenkov added.

    He noted that during the specified period, 335 mercenaries from abroad were liquidated , another 389 left Ukraine without permission. In terms of the rate of loss of mercenaries, Poland is in the lead. Destroyed 99, left 146 militants. In addition, over the past four weeks, 36 mercenaries from Canada, 33 from Romania, 21 from the United States have been destroyed. Data on changes in the number of foreign military in Ukraine are published on the resources of the Russian military department.

    Military airport in Crimea was hit. Seven explosions. Probably missilies of some kind, as they were pretty big. It looks like airfield was not protected by AA. Not sure of they got ATACMS or Harpoon or their anti ship can be used for land attacks.

    There's a distant possibility it was a sabotage, but htf you pull out a sabotage of this size in the middle of Crimea during the war? Last reports say 9 explosions.

    Very interesting what system was used? Locals filmed some of the explosions and they are massive.

    Impossible to pull a sabotage for such VIP place. UA has no means to do much even in less depth.
    We will find out soon during the briefing

    A few sources on TG reporting sabotage but its too early to tell, there were definitely multiple explosions from the vids I have seen , but could be secondaries going off rather than missile hits.

    Margarita Simonyan reported a sabotage.
    Crimea is among the heaviest defended areas in Russia. I would put a possibility of multiple penetration close to zero.

    Edit : stored ammo detonation at Saki airbase near Novofedorovka. No casualties, no destruction of equipment. Su-24M and Su-30 are stationing there.

    Yeah, local partisans fed up with the occupation sounds much more plausible. Or SF roaming free with the help of locals is also possible.
