    Is this Special Military Operation boring you? As per usual, lots of crying and complaining mostly from people who have no skin in the game and won't be doing any fighting or dying in the Ukraine.

    "At least 10" Tu-95s decided to join the party at night.
    The result is kabooming in Kiev, Charkov, Dnepr, Zaporhoze, Odessa, Kirovograd, Poltava, Krivy Rog, Vinnitsa, Lvov...
    Easier to say everywhere.
    Remind me next time when the Brit tabloid will call the lacking stock of Russkie missiles ... Laughing

    And by the way, a new salvo was being reported in the air above Doneck half an hour ago, so should be already delivered ...

    The stone age in Ukroshitstan is approaching step by step ...

    We gave a good account of ourselves in 99 against essentially the same enemy, lost plenty of skin, myself included so you can shove your bs where it don't shine.

    What is the alternative here? Pack up and go home. Sue for peace?  Continue pussyfooting around giving nato more and more empowerment to get further involved… if Russia hasn't been able to organise a large scale offensive in 9 months, I am not holding my breath thats all i am saying. If reality doesn’t sit well with you not my problem

    The interesting part of the story is that news about the strikes are being carefully censored in the western shitstream to avoid people making a clue.
    If you are lying to the audience about the inevitable lack of missiles the Russian horde is to face any moment, you can't show how they deliver few dozens of them on a daily basis.
    Ukrs are finally getting the feeling of a war. There is no power, no water, no heating.
    Bodybags are flowing at a stable rate, morgues are full. Cars marked "gruz 200" are visible on the roads and streets of Ukropistan. The petition about MIAs are spreading through Ukro net, we talk tens of thousands cases now that can't be hidden anymore.

    Edit : the new wave of missiles hit the hydro power plants in mass. Seems that each single one in 404 get some gifts ...

    A decommunization process at a full swing I would say ...

    In other words they're going to rely on NATO pilots flying NATO aircraft. Sucks to be them, as it won't make a difference.

    I see something like one of those contractor firm that train US pilots will get the contract probavly worth couple billions.

    The plane will very likely be mirage f1 they bought not long ago or some private f-4. They will buy them 100 million piece.

    The UK economy relies *significantly* more on data connectivity than gas pipelines which can be mitigated by (expensive) LNG sufficiently enough for the relatively weak winters they have.

    UK gas pipeline imports are over double LNG imports. And that is if you ignore the North Sea gas pipelines the UK has which do not even count as imports.

    NS pipelines are more valuable for europe than for Russia that can still find other routes and clients for its gas.

    If Russia reply symetrically then it would need to blow up its own infrastructure. Or should I say the infrastructure of its closest ally like India or China.

    US destroyed Europe's infrastructure not russians. At the end Europe will have to pay for the repairs and keep hiding it was the americans and Russians won't even make long term contracts with them anymore which will rise the prices.

    Putin is not losing the game but certain people only seem to paying attention to the battlefield and territorial gains. A few vessels with grain are absolutely irrelevant on the larger chessboard and could and should be largely ignored. And so they will.

    This war is not only fought with tanks and infantry. Really understand what is happening here. This war is also fought on economic strategy, a shift in global partnerships, exchange of goods in currencies other than dollars, securing oil and gas regions, securing territory with important raw material, impacting industrial capacity and competitive advantage, reducing effectiveness of vasal states.

    The multi-polar world is approaching where the US is not the global superpower anymore with significant military and political leverage. It's losing power and influence rapidly while facing major domestic (economic) issues. In this process they are taking with them all their Western partners that for decades have operated within a framework guided by US reliance and dependencies. It's interconnected in such a way that achieving the desired change has become impossible. Every tried to implement a change in a very large company ... with politics, budgets, processes, agreements, agendas, risk averse people, proposals, meetings, cover your ass things.... well, there you have it.

    The current situation has economically impacted the US significantly more than Russia. The loss of power, respect, trust and influence has declined in such a way that it damaged their long-term outlook and they have been digging their own grave and continue in doing so. The congress/senate is so infested by corruption that change cannot be achieved unless you put a ruthless dictator at the helm to turn the ship around.

    What is happening in Eastern Ukraine is just one small piece of the puzzle / chessboard. And Putin has delivered speeches about this shift in global politics starting almost a decade ago.

    Again, looking beyond the artillery shells.

    Intel Slava Z:

    The Armed Forces of Ukraine officially announced the destruction of 44 out of 50 missiles launched in Ukraine.

    The Prime Minister of Ukraine announced the destruction of 18 objects in 10 regions.

    Thus, according to official Ukrainian statements, 6 missiles were able to hit 18 targets (3 per missile) in 10 regions .

    Reusable missile Shocked
