They supply Ukrs with the weapon costing $200k a piece, only to repurchase it on the dark web for $30k.
A win-win situation, agree?!
It is not corruption if you give it another name... lets call it lobbying... oops... we are already using that for our method of buying politicians... because it is a military thing it probably needs an acronym... to really obscure its meaning but sound cool....
Should start playing this on western TV channels
Well talking about a christian society really only appeals to western countries... most of the rest of the world could care less about christian values... being on the receiving end for so many centuries they are under no illusions of what that is like...
Should start playing this on western TV channels lol!
This is so cringe. It sounds like its trying to appeal to boomer MAGA sexpats. Replace Russia with Thailand in the video and it would make the same sense.
You might be surprised how much this sort of advert would appeal to the bible belt of America and a lot of other western countries... but I doubt Russia would benefit from those people actually moving to Russia.
Ironically it appeals to conservative christians... which is the right wing in the west...
Also black sea fleet is pushed into more and more defensive positions. In my eyes this is brilliant tactic. Ukraine with time will get only stronger and more capable, speed with which they are assimilating western technologies is far beyond any NATO military abilities.
I my eyes this is a brilliant tactic too... Kiev cannot hope to win this conflict, they can only survive long enough for Russia to get bored and give up, and considering the threat they continue to represent to Russia and Russians they are forcing Russian hands to finish this simply by wiping out the entire Ukrainian Armed forces.
When the start sending women to the front line I am sure there will be a lot of backlash not just in the west and north of the country, but also in the west who claim they believe men and women are equal... but not enough to put women on the draft just yet.
There are some rights the hard core and also part time femenists are just not interested in.
Russia will have to further increase already very high costs of operations there without any easy gains and no way out from conflict on its own terms and is not able to distract world attention on other global topics...
Artillery shells are cheap and so are bullets and they are doing the lions share of grinding up the Orc army... of course the nazi holding forces shooting their own retreating soldiers is helping too...
This video shows that Russian tank losses are probably over 300, jydging by the ratio between photographed destroyed equipment and actual destroyed equipment.
Any video shows what it shows... claiming for everyone shown there must be more is just propaganda... Zelensky approves your message.
But surely you mean 3 million tanks...
Bruh, russians are doing the same thing in the army2022 expo, except they only have a single towed howitzer to flex. Not even the mythical captured caesars or pzh 2000
That shit isn't worth fixing so it can be used again... very unlikely to have a lot of ammo for it either...
Well I live in England, and its not as extremist Neoliberal Woke-fag as America.
However England has become an absolute joke.
Just look at your PM and the two trying to get his job... jokes are supposed to be funny...
Where is Guy Fawkes when you need him...
I will bet rubles to peanuts, that very soon we will see a next gen of artillery rounds for all the pieces Russkie are using, and not only Malka will reach 70 km, but 2S5 as well, or even more - the charge is very powerful, the barrel is long, and the gun is very robust&solid. With a lighter round of 152mm propelled with 203 mm charges, it must have the potential to reach further than 203 mm round.
The Navy and the Army worked on the Coalition... perhaps now when the Navy budget starts to expand they will put money in to further developing the 152mm and also the 203mm artillery and gun systems they use... new 152mm and 203mm guns for destroyers and cruisers and coastal artillery would be very interesting...
NATzO is becoming more desperate
The irony is that it is the granddads that Kiev is conscripting that really need the Botox treatment...
Around 5-7 destroyed mstas, plus over 15 captured or destroyed Russian tanks put on display in kiev.
They might have broken down at various stages and have been left behind to prevent them slowing an advance... some of them might have been DNR vehicles... there are a multitude of possible reasons... they have been fighting for 6 months...
What is left there to sanction? Complete imbeciles dictate US foreign policy.
Maybe no Christmas card this year...
Murdering an innocent daughter of a Russian political analyst is particularly evil and demands proper repercussions.
Seems to me to be a good opportunity to hit a few anti Russian oligarchs in the Ukraine and their properties and businesses...
Sorry, she is not "innocent", she supports the war on Ukraine:
"The Ukrainians are not human, they all deserve to die"
Liking her more already.
That is a shitty statement as dehumanizing the enemy is a slippery slope, but her death was due to a terrorist act. Not sure how important Dugin and his daughter in the political circles, but this could open a nasty can of worms where Ukrainian officials will be on the hitlist themselves. And Ukrainian officials are not hiding yet. Arestovitch has many kids, Zelensky doesn't hide his family too.
And importantly if this guy does have any influence, I wonder what murdering his daughter will do to the advice he gives and how it is received now...
Well, since most of you support the killing of innocent Ukrainians in an unjustified war, just because they do not want to be a part of the corrupt Russian Mir you all seem to adore so much I do not quite see the difference. If Russia is attacking Kyiv, why can not Ukraine attack Moscow?
Kiev declared the people in the Donbass and Lugansk regions as being Russian and has been shelling them for the last 8 years, Russia told them to stop and signed agreeements in Minsk for them to stop and negotiation a solution and they have continued murdering Ukrainians claiming they are invading Russians.
Well now you have Russians and they are killing the Ukrainians that were murdering other Ukraininas for the last 8 years... if you want to expand to murdering Russians in Russia... well that is likely going to lead to Russia escalating their list of things they can destroy and the people they can kill... they are currently using less than 10% of their military... perhaps that is the solution... they do need to ramp it up and kill everyone in their way... no surrender or retreat allowed.
Should get the job done faster I suppose... but Kiev wanted this and forced this on Russia... no complaining now.
In no way Russia is pursuing Euroasianism, it's the west that is pushing Russia and China into an alliance and it's a pragmatical, not ideological choice.
Putin makes it clear that Russia is happy to work with any country... including countries not traditionally seen as friends like Turkey or Saudi Arabia or UAE or South Korea or the west or Japan, but it is pretty clear now they are not going to force countries who act against them to be friends and trade partners... Russia is not going to force the EU to take cheap Russian gas for instance...
What embarrassment and shame
This SMO brought nothing but fucking shame
They picked a good target, like moskva, like Saki and Belbek strikes
It's a shit show , and now it's open season on Russians
What a disaster informationally
This is further evidence... if any were needed that the west hates Russia and Russians... the don't hate Putin and 50% of the population who might have voted for him if he was a US president, they hate all Russians, and this SMO proves it to all the doubters... there was no consideration to remain neutral like Turkey or the rest of the world for the west... they all jumped on the anti Russia bandwagon because that is where they were to begin with... they pushed for this war and now they have it, and they have been pushing Russia to leave and turn elsewhere and now they have that too.
This is excellent... Putin could never have achieved this on his own... and this is great for Russia because it would have had to change and conform and become the US like the EU is being forced to... all those tight regulations that protect consumers and make it harder for big companies to make a lot of money are going to disappear... maybe one at a time or maybe all at once and 1,000 reasons will be given... the most likely from European countries wanting to remain competitive now they are going to lose their cheap energy subsidies that made them look way more efficient than they actually were.
For the rest of the world it creates a new development direction that does not end up with weirdos and loonies running the place, where there is a difference between discipline and abuse...
And still Russia plays some kind of stupid game of cryptic messages, when it needs to bring the axe down on this zombie state and it's western supporters
Actions speak louder than words and what they are doing is more to fix the relevant problems than anything the west has done in the Middle East for 100 years.
But with such a passive bitch in the Kremlin, we have to tolerate these provocations, strikes, and generally hostile behavior,
What a shame
Of course... Ukraine is getting off so lightly they lash out in panic because they don't know what else they can do...
Even if it did work it wouldn't be very healthy for the Ukraine (or anyone outside Russia for that matter)
Whether it worked or not, they are no safer now, and a few in the Russian heirarchy will be worried what might happen to their own vehicles and children and even themselves so perhaps the faster they eliminate the threat from Zelensky and his minions the better... perhaps some new operations will be authorised... and there is not that much a security service can do to stop a 2.5 ton car bomb that arrived at such high flight speeds... of course other people on the street will die but that is the new game they want to play... lets keep playing to win.
I would kill lesser western leaders for warning. The promiscuous whore from Finland, insolent, feminist, friend of globalism, anti-Russian, NATO agent, is a good candidate to blow her head off or poison her with radiation. I clarify, it is what I would do.
I think you need to calm down.... you sound as crazy as the Nazis Russia is fighting.
I'm not asking Russia to be the aggressor, but it should retaliate when attacked. Lack of retaliation only invites more aggression.
Your problem is that you would be so easy to manipulate... who did this... has it even been investigated yet?
Who exactly ordered it?
You have to know these things before you can work out what your response is.
Knee jerk attacks in instant responses will lead to the enemy manipulating you into attacking innocent factions and turning them against you... and wasting your time and fire power on targets that are not real targets.
Retaliation should never be instant unless it is a reaction to prevent further damage.
Quote from the article:
“Moscow plans to send laboratory tests from the soldiers to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW).”
This is why I lost hope for Russia already after 2014. Instead of retaliation (and finally taking out those decision making centers in Kiev) Russia asks investigation from a western organization.
These kremlins cannot be helped. No matter how many times they are fooled, betrayed and screwed their behavior never changes.
Use your brains... when the OPCW fudges the results or refuses to take action, or loses the samples then Russia can take action to replace the OPCW with something that actually does a proper and impartial job... this is a test and I hope they fail because the result will be Russia can denounce the OPCW openly as a biased organisation and take steps with other like minded countries to form a rest of the world alternative to this western dominated charade.
Can Garry please delete most of the last few pages?
Happy to comply.
If you want the war to stop, just leave all occupied areas and pay for the damage you have caused. Then the war ends, I am sure. When Crimea and Donbass are free again and Ukraine a full NAFO member this nonsense is over.
Russia didn't want war, they expected Kiev to honour the agreements it signed in Minsk.
Kiev used the Minsk agreements to delay and waste time while they built up their forces and sent troops to murder Ukrainians, and just when they were going to open a full scale attack the Russians attacked them.
Why would Russia want this war to stop when the job is not finished yet... Kiev has not properly paid its bill.
Oh you are waiting for the Ukrainians to start shelling themself and whine about genocide, like in Donetsk?
I am sure Russia will be rather more thorough...
