    For those that still don't get it! It's not about the taking of land.




    Losses of the Ukrainian side in November in personnel exceeded 8.3 thousand people, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said at a conference call.

      "Enemy losses in November amounted to more than 8,300 military personnel, five aircraft, ten helicopters, 149 tanks and more than 300 armored fighting vehicles," he said.

    The head of the Russian defense staff also pointed to the serious losses of the enemy in manpower and equipment in the Luhansk-Donetsk and Yuzhnodonetsk directions.

    The minister also accused official Kiev of shelling the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant and trying to create the appearance of a threat of a nuclear catastrophe.

    That cruise missile being shot down was flying pretty high in the sky, I've seen them fly lower in previous video material.

    Apparently, another UAV incident happened near an airfield. I cannot imagine these are not lighting up on s400 radars so someone should slap some commander in the face and wake them up.

    @Afroditaa1984
    The Russian army has received new T-90M "Breakthrough" tanks. Combat vehicles - around 200 units have already been delivered to the Special Military Operation zone.

    https://twitter.com/Afroditaa1984/status/1600082422728560640

    ........................


    Apparently the production/update of the T 90 is increasing..
    The numbers have already started to become significant....which may indicate that these machines are performing much better than the T 72.

    There is no point why those shouldn't work much better than B3 modification. That was supposed to be inexpensive and massive - and was like that.
    Yet 200 90Ms is impressive.

    Looks like there was indiscriminate Grad shelling of Donetsk today. At least 8 dead, including a DPR parliamentary deputy. Another reminder that Donetsk needs at least a 40km buffer.

    Chronicle of the Special Military Operation for 5 Dec 2022⚡

    💥 The RF Armed Forces have again carried out massive strikes on critical infrastructure in #Ukraine. Enemy facilities in #Vinnitsa, #Cherkasy, #Khmelnytsky, #Poltava, #Kiev, #Sumy, #Kharkov, #Zaporozhye, #Dnipropetrovsk, #Nikolaev and #Odessa regions have been hit.

    Ukrainian air defence systems failed to repel the attack. Some regions of the country experienced problems with electricity, water supply and communications.

    During the raid, a missile presumably fired by the Ukrainian S-300 air defence system crashed near the Moldovan city of #Briceni.

    ♦#Saratovo and #Ryazan Regions:

    ▪ Ukrainian drones attacked two strategic airfields Russian Aerospace Forces in #Engels and #Ryazan, three members of the RF Armed Forces were killed, six wounded.

    ♦#Kursk Region:

    ▪ Enemy militants shelled the border villages of #Tetkino and #Guevo, damaging residential buildings and a gas pipeline. There are no fatalities or injured.

    ♦#Starobelsk Direction:

    ▪ In the #Kupyansk - #Svatovo sector, the AFU attacked Russian positions in the direction of Lyman 1st, but they could not achieve any visible success.

    ▪ In the #Lyman sector, Ukrainian units launched an offensive towards #Chervonopopovka and #Ploshchanka. Russian forces repulsed the enemy's attacks and forced the militants to retreat to their initial lines with losses.

    ♦#Soledar Direction (MAP):

    ▪ In the #Lysychansk sector, units of the RF Armed Forces are fighting in the vicinity of #Belogorovka. Russian artillery and aviation are shelling enemy positions near the settlement.

    ▪ In the #Soledar sector, Russian forces broke through the defensive lines of the AFU's 10th Mountain Assault Brigade and occupied two platoon strongholds in #Yakovlevka and three in #Belogorovka.

    ▪ In the #Bakhmut area, Wagner PMC assault units broke through the AFU defences in #Opytnoye and in the southeast of #Bakhmut.

    ➖ At the same time, Russian units stormed the positions of Ukrainian formations on the approaches to #Kleshcheyevka.

    ▪ In the #Toretsk (#Dzerzhinsk) sector, the RF Armed Forces are advancing on the #Shumy - #Novgorodskoye line.

    ➖ AFU assault units attempted to break through the Russian defences in the vicinity of #Pivnichnoye (#Kirovo). Russian units repulsed the attack. The enemy, having lost 20 men killed and wounded, withdrew.

    ♦#Lugansk People's Republic:

    ▪ Overnight, Ukrainian militants fired HIMARS rockets at civilian facilities in #Alchevsk. Residential buildings, educational buildings, dormitories and a library were damaged. Ten people were killed and 28 injured.

    ▪ In the afternoon, the enemy militants used rocket artillery to hit #Vrubovka, injuring three civilians.

    ♦#Donetsk Direction:

    ▪ Russian motorised rifle units continue fighting with the AFU in the centre of #Maryinka.

    ▪ Ukrainian terrorists shelled populated areas of the #Donetsk agglomeration with barrel and rocket artillery, including residential buildings and civilian facilities in #Donetsk. At least four civilians were killed.

    ♦#Zaporozhye Direction:

    ▪ The RF Armed Forces hit the workshop of the high-voltage equipment plant in #Zaporozhye, where high-voltage transformers are manufactured. The strike on the facility will make it difficult to restore the infrastructure damaged during the raid.

    ♦#Kherson Direction on Southern Front:

    ▪ Ukrainian militants shelled the town of #Tavriysk with mortars. Residential buildings, a school, a gas pipeline and a power line were damaged. Civilians were not injured.

    Massive missile attack of the Russian Armed Forces on Ukraine: what is known by the end of the day

    In the afternoon, Russian troops, supported by aviation, launched strikes against critical infrastructure in Ukraine. In some regions of the country, there were problems with electricity and water supply, as well as with communications.

    🔻Kiev: a series of arrivals and explosions. Local residents reported on the work of air defense systems. Presumably, the Severnaya 330 substation was damaged.

    🔻Kramatorsk: arrival at the infrastructure facility, the city is de-energized. Electricity went out in Slavyansk, Druzhkovka, Konstantinovka and Dobropolye.

    🔻Odessa: explosions in the vicinity and the region, one of the two autotransformers of the Novoodesskaya 330 substation was damaged, as well as the Artsyz substation and Usatovo substation. In Odessa itself, pumping stations and backup lines did not function.

    🔻Dnepropetrovsk: arrivals in the vicinity of the city, the pumping stations of one of the five water utilities are de-energized. Potentially, the Dneprovskaya 750 substation could have been hit.

    🔻Zaporozhye: explosions in the city and region, including in the village of Novosofievka. The substation Dnepr-Donbass was damaged. Water supply was lost in several areas.

    🔻Cherkasy: arrival in Cherkasy and Uman, emergency power outages are introduced in the region.

    🔻Poltava: Explosions near Kremenchug.

    🔻Sumy: A series of explosions in the area. Presumably, hits in the substation Sumy 330. There is no electricity supply in almost the entire region.

    🔻Nikolaev: a series of explosions in the center and suburbs of the city.

    🔻Krivoy Rog: an energy facility was hit, electricity was lost in some areas.

    🔻Kharkiv region: explosions in Kharkov, as well as in Lozovsky and Volchansky districts.

    🔻In the vicinity of the Moldavian city of Briceni, on the border with Ukraine, an upper stage of a rocket was found.

    According to preliminary data, the projectile belongs to the Ukrainian S-300 air defense system.

    🔻Also, explosions occurred at unidentified facilities in Ternopil, Vinnitsa, Cherkasy, Khmelnytsky and Kirovohrad regions.

    Energy supply was completely or partially lost in Cherkasy, Lvov, Nikolaev, Sumy, Dnepropetrovsk, Kharkiv and Odessa regions. Long-term power outages are planned across the country.

    Today, the focus of strikes has been shifted to the Odessa region, which suffered more than other regions. Hits in central and eastern Ukraine have resulted in extensive blackouts, the extent of which has yet to be determined.

    However, the nature of the strikes again suggests that autotransformers were the target. Most likely, critical damage to the substations is still not done.

    Not being able to intercept some old soviet drone is a shame for them. Specially that those strategic bases should be protect 24/7 by S-400, tors and pantsir.

    Their radar troops fucked up badly.

    Russia has already deployed nuclear iskanders for any dumb move coming from Poland.

    Polish were shitting themselves over that S-300 missiles and doing everything to deescalate and you think they would allow a direct attack by Nato on Russian forces through their territory knowing they would get nuked 5 min later ?

    Get real. Ukrainians are used like a used condom and that's their only goal. They have no intention to fight for them.

    800 tanks is to support the MiC in the US. The more they send the more histerical they all become and the more US stuff they buy. Don't also forget they send them for free. All those countries hosting US troops are paying for it. Japan has tried to get ride of them but they can't because it is even more costlier to send them back home.

    American armor in Poland is all for show. Ultimately the USA always eventually abandons its "allies" once it gets too much for them i.e. South Vietnam, and Afganistan.

    800 units is rather small. That isn't 800 tanks either.

    tired of 10,000 ukrops killed every month and bakhmut still being contested along with no city taken yet. Has Russia even reported what percentage of the way they are done wiping out their forces even with factors involving mercenaries? 700 tanks along with the other 100 being different equipment that is still just a shit load to ukraine having existing 2000 plus tanks if they got supplied those tanks from poland.

    You don't know anything just like I don't know anything either, you are just a silent observer of events..
    I also thought that the West would NOT dare to do many of the things that it did, but it did. Both the attacks on "Saki" and these yesterday's attacks are the work of the West, primarily the USA and the UK.

    On the other side, the Russian side, I don't see any panic and the fact is that the Russians have neither declared war nor openly started trying to destroy the Ukroshitstan regime.
    Why they didn't, only they know.. there must be some strategy.
    And the fact that you write that the Russians "failed" to track these drones is debatable, because you don't know many details, just like I don't. Maybe that drone isn't what we're being served by the media. Here in Serbia, a lot is written about Israel's involvement.
    The Russians are waging a real war, that is, a war with their military equipment. There are flaws and mistakes, it's not a video game.
    Given that the West is not at war with its own equipment and on its border, that is, in a real war, it is therefore ridiculous to comment that the Russians "made a mistake" somewhere.
    It's always easy when your neighbor's house is on fire and not yours...
    And the fact that you write that the West will "give or not give" something is of no use.
    The goal of the West is not only the conflict in Ukroshitstan, but the desire to attack Russian military bases in Russia and to transfer the conflict as much as possible to Russia itself.
    There is only one problem, how long will the Russians have patience.
