    All the pics I linked are from today.
    There are tons of others all over the Ukro TG channels, sirens were roaring for a whole night in all the eastern Ukraine.
    Zaporozhe, Dnipro, Charkov, Artyomovsk, dozens of strikes all over.
    You can't read the time bar properly.
    Functional analphabetism, yup, that should be the closest call scratch

    According to whom lol.

    The connectivity picture may have been from today but again that's related to connectivity not actually strikes.

    Also last night was the 11th but to be fair that does depend upon time and the sirens are put on for anything including air raids from planes, arty and more, they are not specific to the specific subject in question. So to claim the sirens were on proves nothing

    There have been no new hits on critical infrastructure since the FIRST RAID, there have been no announcements that such places were hit, that power grids got hit etc and there is nothing to prove that

    Your just lying to kiss ass so go post to someone who is dumb enough to fall for your BS. Cause I ain't bud

    If Russia wants to loose half of all the aircrafts to Ukraine air defence, sure go for it.

    Russians can easily jam all ukrop SAMs, and nasams can be spoofed by chaff and  evaded. The only threat is optically guided buk, but this can be  evaded by flying into clouds and going outside of its range.

    Sure, thats why the Russian airforce is so active over Ukraine then.

    Important to note that Svyatogorsk is inside the borders of the DPR, not Kharkov, indicating the AFU intends to continue the offensive.

    I believe the mayor and town administration of the city stayed and supported the Russians when they took control. Not sure what their fate will be.

    Medvedev on Zelensky's statement:

    A certain Zelensky said he would not engage in dialogue with those issuing ultimatums. The current "ultimatums" are a child's warm-up to the demands of the future. And he knows them: total capitulation of the Kiev regime on Russia's terms.
    - Medvedev stated.

    Yeah and ? The Russian leadership better understand that literally nothing will stop the US/Nato regime except physical force. And even then, they will have a govt in exile that they will keep recognizing.

    If it was that easy to suppress mobile AD systems, NATO would succeed above Serbia in 1999. For 400 fired SAMS they destroyed 3 or 4 radars. Plus, Serbian mobile AD systems were obsolete and couldn't engage planes flying above 7000 meters.

    Svyatogorsk is under the control of the allied forces, the information about its transfer to the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is a fake - the mayor of the city Vladimir Bandura.


    Zelensky: “Ukraine cannot return its lands without the help of the United States. I understand it"

    This alleged success in the north might be all that is needed for public support in the west for boots on the ground. Is Russia ready ? The whole west is just gushing with war frenzy from this.

    When I think about this again, I really dont see mobilization being that important. After all, according to Russian osint and the MoD only 15-20% of the entire standing russian army is engaged in Ukraine. Shouldnt the solution be to use the vast majority of Russian troops and equipment against Ukraine? If theres a mobilization, it would be more prude t to garrison conscripts far from ukraine and use them to take the vavancies left by the standing atmy. All 5 military districs should send their forces to Ukraine.

    Exactly. NATO is free to decide how much pain do they want, but the escalation dominance belongs to Russia.

    So Russia knew these counter offensives were coming. That is why they paused. It looks like the plan was to just wait for NATO to throw in their last lot and just absorb and beat it back. And then carry on with the SMO after that is over

    But NATO isn't going to just sit back after the offensives are over. NATO is treating this like a war for survival.

    I thought there could be a middle ground between 5 BTG's holding the whole northern front vs full mobilization

    There can't be another half measure.

    So now the fuckup is getting even worse oh wait I am sorry this was all part of the "plaaaaaaaan"

    but seriously what the hell are the Russians doing if that's true.

    The question is ... where are the Russian troops? Still no reinforcements after 5 days. Not on the entire line? Where are the other 95 brigades? Many pictures of the 3 corps with a new toy. But where is it? Colons on colons ... but they apparently don't get there.

    Are they back in Belarus and will they just start running from north to south?

    It's all strange. At the latest today I would have had 20 brigades stand today here as a fortification.

    At this point I am interested to see what Russia is up to with this withdrawal. Pro Russians in Ukraine will find it hard to trust them, and even the Chechen leader is concerned. Its possible they have decided that they can put enough economic pressure on Ukraine and EU to get what they want without escalating the war further. So they will wait for political collapse in the west and Ukraine.

    Skabaeva and Sladkov are preparing all of Russia- you can hear them as they calm the population , they cannot speak so aggressively on TV without inciting the population, as most are ready for war

    To me several things could transpire, the troops they brought never crossed into Kharkov,

    Just like Feb 24, these have gone to pre-planned deployment points

    We await some kind of decision by the leadership to send them , what they wait for I have no idea

    I'm not against it. But they can send more military with current numbers. They had a huge Vostok exercise with 50k soldiers, while whole Kharkov without Izyum was defended with few thousand troops. In my opinion it's about priorities.

    🇷🇺 Member of the State Duma Security Committee Mikhail Sheremet proposed to introduce full mobilization in Russia

    The deputy voiced this opinion in an interview with the URA. RU - according to him, "without full mobilization, transfer to a military footing, including the economy, we will not achieve the proper results." Shermet is sure that today's society needs consolidation and determination to win.

    Earlier, Senator Klimov said that there was no need for mobilization in Russia. The head of the Federation Council Commission for the Protection of the State Sovereignty of the Russian Federation supported Vladimir Putin in his statement, who refused to discuss this topic at the Eastern Economic Forum.

    ----

    If they don't do this, it's a military defeat, the west will not enter regime change, they are prepared for the scenario and can wait Russia out

    At most the Czechs and the eastern europeans will incite a revolt, but nothing in the main western states

    Idk what Putin is thinking

    Talks with Ukraine still on the table – Russia

    The longer negotiations are delayed, the harder it will be to come to terms, the Russian foreign minister says

    “We don’t reject the negotiations; we’re not giving up on the negotiations” with Ukraine, Lavrov told the Rossiya 1 channel.

    “Those who reject them must understand that the longer this process is delayed, the harder it will be to reach an agreement,” he added in an apparent reference to the authorities in Kiev.

    Lavrov noted that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin earlier voiced the same stance on peace talks.
