    This NAZI user by the name of Walther von Oldenburg is so butthurt every time someone is calling for NAZI Extermination Laughing

    I have been advocating for the destruction of NAZI power infrastructures in Pukraine since July and it seems the Russian MOD and listened to my advice.

    Now the next step is the complete cut off of food and water resources to accelerate Russia's noble Denazification efforts.

    You cannot stop your inevitable extinction Walther von NAZI attack

    PhSt, Why did you specifically duplicate the photo?

    I am asking a question about the unit shown in the photo, if I didn't post the photo my question wouldn't make sense

    This half-witted Frenchman  jocolor  writes fairy tales about stealth technology and attributes to the Rafale aircraft the characteristics of the sixth generation aircraft.

    Ukroshitstan inherited an echeloned air defense system, from Strela-10 to S-300, and hundreds of systems, which no European country has. And countries that had far fewer and far more outdated air defenses also shot down F-15/16, Mirage-2000, etc.
    And Lancelot wrote the truth today, that is, that the F-117 was compromised as an aircraft after the aggression against Serbia and because of that it was withdrawn from service. And the F-117 has an RCS of only 0.003 m2 - in any case smaller than the Rafale.  geek

    The story of Western technology is not something to pay attention to, because the West does not want to prove all the shortcomings of its weapon systems - exactly what happened to the "indestructible" Leopard-2 for a short period of time. This is exactly what applies to F-fighters, Eurofighters, Rafales, etc. It is only military equipment, subject to destruction like any other. Everything can be destroyed whether it's F-22 or Su-57 - not Rafale or HIMARS, of course..

    Border conflicts are the worst conflicts, the bloodiest. Isos  jocolor  should know this from Germany's example - only it ended very quickly.. Suspect
    France and French weapons... You better stick to perfumes.. No
    Russia has its own goal, what it wants to achieve and Russia will achieve it.
    After all, the Russians have new platforms like new tanks and new planes. And to be realistic, even that can be destroyed. Everything in this world can be destroyed except HIMARS, Rafale and the arrogance of the French joker..  jocolor

    ISOS, I GUARANTEE YOU WHAT I ALREADY WROTE TO YOU TODAY - YOU WILL BE DRIVING CHINESE CARS IN 10 YEARS AT THE MOST..  lol!
    That should be enough to tell you in which direction EUtopiastan will go...

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation announced the return to the territory of the Russian Federation of 9 captured military personnel


    On November 26, as a result of the negotiation process, 9 Russian servicemen were returned from the territory controlled by the Kyiv regime, who were in mortal danger in captivity. This is reported by the Ministry of Defense of Russia.

    The released servicemen will be delivered to Moscow by aircraft of the Air Force of the Aerospace Forces of the Russian Federation for treatment and rehabilitation in medical institutions.

    All those released are provided with the necessary medical and psychological assistance.

    https://tvzvezda-ru.translate.goog/news/202211261529-9t7d4.html?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-GB&_x_tr_pto=nui

    NOTE: so another 9 returned today. Makes you wonder how many are still left. It seems lately that most of the returnees are from Donetsk or Luhansk.

    To people that replied to me in last 5 pages appropos Russia pivoting to east.

    Keep in mind that mid 2000s Putin and co went dancing with the west, in hopes of quick prosperity by being integrated into Western-organized trade, business, etc. We had joint military hardware projects between Russia and NATO, we had Russia helping USA/NATO every other time they went into their freedom-excursions (FRY attack is just one instance and possibly the only one they took a hard stance against), western media narrative was far more 'forgiving' to the Russia etc.

    The same government did not support China nor Iran as much as they support them now. On the contrary, in some cases they were brought as a 'neutral' party (Iranian nuclear deals and Chinese naval disputes) providing leverage for the West.

    15 years ago Putin warned them at MSC, but he warned them in hopes that they'll listen, rooted in his hope that he'll achieve quick $ by being a player in the western market.

    Russia started growing after the late 90s crisis because it was in the natural position to grow, being on a rocket downfall for the last 10 years. Whoever was in power in 2003 had to ask himself, how do we sustain this growth and generate approval to get reelected again and so on. The answer of Putin's goverment was Western integration.

    Even 10 years ago this was relevant, but has been falling ever since.

    So I wouldn't be surprised if China takes the Russian "alliance" more cautiously than what Russia needs at the moment.
    Where I completely disagree with western media is the belief that Russian government knows the ins and outs of geopolitical situation Russia is in and won't head for any pitfalls soon. Again, China is into realpolitik too.

    Europeans will never allow chinese car in Europe, nor will europeans buy chinese shit. They will keep buying europeans brands.

    Unfortunately, NORA self-propelled howitzers would not be a good fit as they have a lot of Western components. Even steel for barrel is coming from Slovenia. We lost a lot of competencies last 30 years.

    Russia has everything to replace western components. It's not a boeing aircraft but a truck with a gun.

    Even the new russian Koalirsia mounted on a truck is too heavy and too big. They need a smaller truck and sincerly Nora is the best option for a low cost wheeled howitzer to get in huge numbers.

    Nora is unproven in combat and there's no way in hell that Russia is going to be Serbia's beta testers.

Mass starvation needs to be imposed on the NAZI rodents to accelerate Denazification and depopulate Pukraine to aid in the future liberation of these NAZI occupied Russian territories.

    With severe food shortages and an impending starvation the NATzO hosts in Pukraine will have a very difficult choice whether to feed the Pukranian population or its cannon fodders in the front

    First FOABs on cities, then nukes now famine?

    China knows its next if Russia is defeated

    China didn't forget Pelosi in Taiwan, nor the Coronavirus accusations, nor the arrest of executives in Canada, nor the US and Australia enacting trade barriers to it, nor the hysteria over Huawei and its banning from Western markets, nor the 'QUAD' set up by the US to isolate it or the later AUKUS, nor the protests orchestrated by Soros in Hong Kong, nor its attempt to buy Motor Sich in the Ukraine being frozen out by Washington, nor a bunch of other things.

    I mean Washington strategists barely made a secret of attempting to bring down 'weak link' Russia first as a stepping stone to surrounding China.

    There is no formal alliance between Russia and China and won't be - they each benefit from maximum freedom of action, whereas any alliance implies sacrificing some sovereignty.

    From a MoA poster. My highlights.

    Mr. Prigozhin, the founder of Wagner Group stated today:

    Как сообщил бизнесмен, отвечая на вопрос финской газеты Helsingin Sanomat, граждан Финляндии в составе ЧВК «Вагнер» есть «не очень много», около 20 человек. «По понятным причинам я не могу давать точную информацию о них», — указал он. При этом предприниматель отметил, что это, как правило, «высококлассные специалисты, очень идейные и мотивированные». По словам Пригожина, у него сложилось очень хорошее мнение о финнах на поле боя. Бизнесмен добавил, что они воюют в британском батальоне в составе ЧВК «Вагнер», командиром которого является гражданин США, экс-генерал морской пехоты.

    Translation: As the businessman said, answering a question from the Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, there are “not very many” Finnish citizens in the Wagner PMC, about 20 people. “For obvious reasons, I cannot give accurate information about them,” he said. At the same time, the entrepreneur noted that these are, as a rule, “highly qualified specialists, very ideological and motivated.” According to Prigozhin, he had a very good opinion about the Finns on the battlefield.

    The businessman added that they are fighting in a British battalion as part of the Wagner PMC, commanded by a US citizen, ex-general of the Marine Corps.

    EDIT, or maybe not, this may be a better interpretation.

    Correct would be "a former General of Marine infantry, who holds US citizenship" - it is not indicated the general was a general of USMC (however not excluded), he could have been a former Russian/Chinese/Libyan etc. general, who later became a citizen of the USA, as Martyanov himself is "a former naval officer, citizen of the USA" but not an USN officer.
