    Russian army made a video of a burial of said soldiers. I believe it was recorded sometime in May.

    Yes, but they´re not pulled away from their working place or families. No disruptions for the economy or angry wifes. 

    The other side, from an Saker article:

    By the way, some sofa-generals have pointed out to me that the Ukraine has 30M people and that it can continue to throw meat at Russian forces for a long time.  I disagree. For starters, the real population is under 30M, but that is not even the point.  If you have 100 people, only a certain percentage (say 25%) can be used as soldiers (even old clueless Volkssturmers).  “Ze” spoke of “only” ONE million soldiers, and that included everybody from the local cop to the top army generals.  But even the one million misses that point.  The Ukronazis are have massive manpower shortages (hence their constant waves of mobilization which I have lost track of) not only due to the Russian meat-grinder, but because many/most Ukrainians are trying to avoid being set to the frontlines.  The rich have already left (either for the EU or Russia), the really hardcore nationalists are being killed en masse by the Russians.  The numbers of Ukronazi soldiers pretty well trained by NATO is only in the tens of thousands.  As for the Ukronazi elite forces (death squads, diversionary-reconnaissance groups, terrorists gangs and GUR/SBU special forces), they are many a few thousands max (probably a few hundreds).
    Also, whatever the actual size of the Ukronazis forces currently may be, the bigger the force, the bigger the logistical difficulties in keeping these forces at the right locations and adequately resupplied. And, of course, the closer these Ukrainian forces are the more the Russian can destroy them AND their supply lines.
    So, my alternatively gifted sofa-generals, you can wave your Ukie flags even harder, just don’t get your hopes too high :-)

    STFU. Call it what it is. Another propaganda psyop. I reported on it 2 pages ago

    Putin said that the special operation's overall plan won't see any major alterations. "The plan is not subject to adjustment, the General Staff makes operational decisions during the operation...This work continues despite these counteroffensive attempts by the Ukrainian military," he said.

    Putin emphasized that Moscow is "in no hurry" to reach its objectives, and using only contract troops, not the full force of the Russian army.

    "Our troops were withdrawn from the Kiev direction to create conditions for concluding such an agreement. Instead, the authorities in Kiev immediately abandoned all agreements, threw them in a box, and announced that they would not seek any agreements with Russia, but victory on the battlefield. Well, be our guests," Putin said.

    Putin stressed that Russia was "serious" about the security guarantee idea hammered out in the course of talks in the spring, and recalled that guarantees were required from Russia, major Western powers and Turkey. "In general, we agreed with this. There were some things that required minor adjustments, but we agreed in general. This was a very important demand but Kiev authorities then delayed it," he lamented.

    So the Kremlins bet, is that the West won't last the duration of the conflict which they will keep going for long time

    Based on Putins words

    Hopefully he's right- if he's wrong, it's a fatal error

    Clint Eastwood said in Dirty Harry "a man must know his limitations" which you don't understand. That's how you regularly swallow fatty sausages from others in the comments, but you are not aware of it. People here tear you like a condom. I assume you like the BBC, but that doesn't apply to British TV.

    He could be lying. He's done that in this war before. He better be lying.

    Anyway other news

    The Pentagon expects that NASAMS SAMs will be delivered to Ukraine within two months.

    Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder said at a briefing. So in other words, they are already there and will be used at any moment.

    They should announce that they will start constructing and building a mosque some where in ukraine, to piss off the ukrainians even more since they are all nationalists along with plenty of jews supporting this war. Laughing

    The tactic is clear.... destroy material and manpower as much as possible. Leaving an unbearable cost of lives for Ukraine and material for its western suppliers.... if need be, he changes tactics. There's a resource for that. Equally important is economic warfare. Russia will break Europe, which will not have cheap energy, making production unfeasible. Putin is thinking strategically, not localized combat.

    This was obvious back then too. They are hoping that EU will eventually feel the pinch to the point backing out and Winter is best time for that. If by Mid Winter and the EU is willing to take heavy losses, then things may ratchet up.

    I have said before " Ukrainians will run out of bodies , before Russia runs out of bullets . "  And  that " the West will run out of fuel ( most probably )  , before Russia runs out of reserves . "  But neither of these things will stop the war , and stop missile strikes against Russia , since you only need a small , well paid crew to launch missiles. And neither of these things will remove Nazis from Kiev , since you need to occupy entire Ukraine for sometime , to ensure that . and neither of these things will ensure that Russian fuel embargo against West , will work in time for sure . So a prolonged operation , as it stands now , will not achieve the stated aim of denazification and demilitarization . The only action that will achieve these aims , is a surge in forces , enabling entire Ukraine to be cleared of Nazis . A surge is possible and will not damage the economy , if it is in the order of a few weeks , enough time to capture most Nazis . After this surge , a more modest number ( equal to present numbers of a little more ) will patrol the borders of Ukraine  . If per chance , it does not work , then nothing , or much less is lost . Economic activity can return to normal . But if it works it will end the war , together with the cost of the war in blood and treasure , in the long term .

    Putin's calculus seems to be the West - and in particular Europe - will break and seek a compromise. The US/UK are relatively unscathed and in fact important interest groups like the MIC are making money hand over fist. The neocons are practically orgasmic at the thought of manipulating Ukrainians and Russians to kill each other (real Orthodox brotherhood). The flaw in Putin's logic is the West can always up the ante in terms of provocations to the point where he has to react. Bombing Belgorod might not get a rise out of the Russian population. I bet bombing Moscow does.
