    It seems the Kiev regime is trapped between a rock and a hard place right now.  Very Happy

    For those saying the grom-2 ballistic missile doesn't exist, why are there photos of its TEL from 2020?

    Btw if so many Ukrainian troops are mutineering or being killed around peski and soledar, why is progress so slow there still, as slow as popasnaya?

    Shouldn't the Ukrainians be functionally out of reserves?

    MoD updates keep announcing the suppression of D-30 batteries. Shouldnt the Ukrainians have already run out of ammo for them already?

    Why does the Russian MoD keep announcing "offensives" around nikolaev krivoy rog this last month, but little to no ground is taken?

    At novofedorovka, did any of the VMF aircraft stationed there perform ground attack in Ukraine? Does the VMF air wing cooperate with the VKS?

    And here are the real results of the special operation. The deblocking of the North Crimean water channel led to this:

    Crimean farmers have finished harvesting early grain. According to the operational data of the regional Ministry of Agriculture, more than 2.1 million tons of early grain were harvested, which is 700 thousand tons more than last year. The average yield is more than 38 quintals per hectare.

    So many questions!? Laughing

    Grim-2 is a new system that was basically frozen in 2019 due to lack of funding. A prototype did make an appearance at one of the festival days. Btw "funding" became a BIG issue in Ukraine due to major corruption and money laundering. They keep on selling the silverware. Anyway with all the "new laundry money" they can now probably afford to fund this project.

    Another btw - wasn't it the Ukrs that announced an offensive in Kherson (a couple of times)? Any kind of offensive normally means that you intend to successfully occupy and take some territory. Why are they trying to destroy dams, bridges and even a nuclear power station? Those things should come in handy when you plan an offensive.

    As for the D-30's they should literally have mountains of these rounds in stock somewhere, but yes they do tend to sell the silverware, so maybe you do have a point there.

    Summary of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the progress of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine (12082022)

    As a result of the offensive actions of the Allied forces in the Soledar area, the losses of the 14th mechanized brigade of the AFU amounted to more than 2000 people. The remnants of the brigade's personnel were withdrawn by the Ukrainian command to the rear areas.

    In the areas of the settlements of Opytne and Nevelskoye of the Donetsk People's Republic, as a result of high-precision strikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces, the losses of the 56th Motorized Infantry Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in manpower exceeded 70 percent of the list number.

    The personnel of the 23rd battalion of the brigade in full force voluntarily left their combat positions and left for the rear areas.

    A high-precision strike by the Russian Aerospace Forces on the temporary deployment point of the 28th mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of the settlement of Novogrigoryevka in the Mykolaiv region destroyed up to 100 militants and nine units of military equipment.

    As a result of concentrated fire strikes on the combat positions of Ukrainian nationalists in the Marinka area of the Donetsk People's Republic, the losses of the 3rd battalion of the 66th Mechanized Brigade in manpower amounted to more than 50%.

    In addition, as a result of the defeat of the stronghold of the 58th Motorized Infantry Brigade, up to 40 nationalists and five units of automotive equipment were destroyed in the area of the settlement of Zaitsevo of the Donetsk People's Republic.

    During the day, five control points were hit, including the 4th tank Brigade in the area of the settlement of Zaliman, Kharkiv region, the 103rd Territorial Defense Brigade in the area of Nikolaevka, Donetsk People's Republic, as well as manpower, weapons, military and special equipment in 157 districts.

    Destroyed: a fuel depot for Ukrainian military equipment in the Kurakhovo district of the Donetsk People's Republic, six ammunition depots in the districts of Velikoye Artakovo, Mykolaiv region, Zaliman, Kharkiv region, Kramatorsk, Zaitsevo, Krasnogorovka and Avdiivka of the Donetsk People's Republic.

    In the area of the settlement of Chas Yar of the Donetsk People's Republic, the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed an AN/MPQ-64 counter-battery radar station supplied by the US to the Kiev regime.

    As part of the counter-battery struggle, four platoons of Grad multiple launch rocket systems were suppressed in the areas of the settlements of Serebryanka, Soledar of the Donetsk People's Republic, Shirokoe and Velikaya Alexandrovka of the Kherson region.

    In addition, two artillery platoons of Acacia guns and four platoons of D-30 howitzers were hit at firing positions in the areas of the settlements of Georgievka, Konstantinovka, Novgorodskoye, Veseloye, Andreevka and Dzerzhinsk of the Donetsk People's Republic.

    Russian air defense means destroyed five Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles in the areas of the settlements of Egorovka, Spartak of the Donetsk People's Republic, Archangelovka and Volkhov Yar of the Kharkiv region during the day.

    In addition, two Haimars multiple rocket launchers were shot down in the air in the area of Novaya Kakhovka and four Alder MLRS shells in the area of Chernobayevka, Kherson region.

    In total, since the beginning of the special military operation, 267 aircraft, 146 helicopters, 1,732 unmanned aerial vehicles, 365 anti-aircraft missile systems, 4,293 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 797 multiple rocket launchers, 3,290 field artillery and mortars, as well as 4,844 units of special military vehicles have been destroyed.

    War between India and China benefits Russia as well. Also a war between Iran and Turkey.

    Russia's land border will be secure for the next 1000 years.

    But Russia will have to disintegrate the U.S as well.

    So Mercouris is running with the great Kherson counteroffensive "mistake" drivel. Supposedly Russian advances in Donetsk
    are because the Kiev regime transferred some artillery to the west. This is intellectually insulting drivel and we have here a
    case of "consensus think". A collection of internet "pundits" feel it is a good explanation so it must be one.

    I suppose the admission by top rank Kiev regime members that the Kherson counteroffensive was never real somehow does not
    enter into the "analysis" aka analisis

    Funny how compartmentalized the thinking of these people is. Russia has a massive advantage in artillery but a fake Kiev
    regime relocation made all the difference. Do these clowns even bother asking the obvious question: if the Kiev regime
    forces are short of artillery and MLRS before the transfer (this is clearly the case), then what sort of impact does any change
    in this level have? This is the tail wagging the dog.

    So you only have insults as an answer. However th that you expect me to believe without question that some random person easily see with a naked eye ballistic missiles falling at 1500m/s is more intellectually insulting.

    Lightning travels a lot faster than Mach 4, yet we still see it. Because you can't do anything about all the light such an energetic event gives off, all the photons that then travel in all directions. Those photons will enter rod and cone cells and form an image in the brain. It doesn't matter what the delay is between those photons being absorbed and the brain processing the signal and updating what one sees. This delay is actually longer than the whole propagation speed of that lightning strike, which is long gone by the time anyone sees it - but they will see it "eventually" (dozens of milliseconds later).
    Granted, blink and you'll miss it, you'll only have the sound to hear in that case.

    It's the same with a missile travelling at Mach 4. Blink and you'll miss it. If you're looking the wrong direction, you'll miss it. But if you're looking at where the missile is about to hit - you will see it; doesn't matter for how briefly. It's going to give off a lot of light, it's also going to give off sound as it approaches which will be distinct from that of the impact.

    The video has roughly same resolution as human eye . And record at same speed . Yet we see no missile ! The question is  should Russian military reveal all and every detail of operations ? The answer is that if information being known by pubic , does more harm than good . Then NO . I guess the public should know that there was an attack , and together with casualties . Because they send their sons to war . But they have no right to know details of attack or operation . Since this helps enemy . Iranians for instance make a mistake , of not revealing general information about attacks and casualties . It is political , since some in power , do not want the public to turn against uncle scumbags . So all Russia needs to say is : as result of incident or attack , equipment and soldier was destroyed . That's all !

    Maybe the missile is not visible because there is no missile, did you considered this option?


    any missile bext case can pass 3 km in one sec, they should see the missile for one seconds in the last 3km prior of impact, and the missile noise has came before the explosion by 2-3 sec.

    There is no visible missile because there is no missile.

    And ,generally, have you ever hard the words that you expect from the USA example ?

    Why does it has to be missile TBH ?

    Considering that Russians do have somehow laxed in security and partisans and Ukrainian symphatizers do exist in say Belarus, Kherson and Crimea. + western support do provides some nifty small weapons like Switchblade UAV. Or just buy some Rosgvardia.. plant bomb and detonate them in daylight for commercial Satellite to see.

    and as usual.. some social media people quickly points their finger to S-400's which what the **** O-o ? I found it so hard to see whether these people are serious or just turn into retard mode, probably seeking revenge over mockery of Patriots in Saudi and Iraq or just hate Ruskies in general. Regardless i fell such are no reason to go into retard mode whatsoever.

    I suppose the admission by top rank Kiev regime members that the Kherson counteroffensive was never real somehow does not
    enter into the "analysis" aka analisis

    Funny how compartmentalized the thinking of these people is.   Russia has a massive advantage in artillery but a fake Kiev
    regime relocation made all the difference.   Do these clowns even bother asking the obvious question:  if the Kiev regime
    forces are short of artillery and MLRS before the transfer (this is clearly the case), then what sort of impact does any change
    in this level have?   This is the tail wagging the dog.  


    Agreed, but give Mercouris a break. He admits he is no military expert, but he does his best at calling it like he sees it according to the available evidence (and sifting thru the opinions of other pundits), and unlike most "experts" he has respect for Russia and is fair-minded. His take on general geopolitics and geoeconomics is pretty good and I can't fault him on much.

    Remember the spasm of propaganda from NATzO how Russia was starving Africa and the world by "blocking" Ukr exports of grain?
    Well, it turns out that the deal reached with Turkish mediation resulted in a rush by the west to grab what they could. When
    they were called out on this brazen hypocrisy the response was to announce that some single ship with a 23,000 ton capacity will
    be getting to Odessa any day now to get grain for Africa.

    The Mayor of Madrid got prank called by Vovan and Lexus.

    During the conversation, the mayor of the Spanish capital said that "it is necessary to punish the Russian bastards in Spain"

    My Nazi-detector just started beeping its fecking arse off... These sorts of evil stupid clowns are invaluable however as they give ample evidence to the orchestrated LIE that the west is somehow more moral and ethical and generally more upstanding than the Russian "mud-hut dwellers".

    I'm enjoying their bile

    At last they're being honest about things. And enacting policies, screaming rhetoric that they would never dare to do against any other nation/race/creed. Or rather would never feel the need to, as their arrogance is such that they simply feel no threat from Africans, Muslims, Asians and others - all of those are simply colonies.

    Hope as many Russians get clued up and read/listen to all this as possible.
