    In one of the first videos of the crash site, the area covered with fire (burning fuel and debris) is very, very large. It's like it rolled a hundred meters or something. Kind of odd.

    Read in western media today that Russian police callously killed a poor deserter in Lipetsk who didn't want to go to war.

    Had to look it up. So, turns out the guy in question stole an assault rifle, ammunition and some grenades and left his base. A manhunt ensued and when police found and confronted him, he opened fire on them. He was killed in the ensuing firefight.

    All those details were left out...

    Super Puma. From what I gathered, in this case a retired French helicopter sold to Ukraine in 2018 in some semi-fishy deal.

    There is no announcement from Putin. Yesterday the rumors were denied. Nothing will change will continue to be a slow war of destruction in Ukraine.

    Yes...

    Putin said that the Russian defense industry produces as many air defense missiles per year as all other countries

    The President of the Russian Federation noted that this inspires confidence in Russia's victory in Ukraine

    SAINT PETERSBURG, January 18. /TASS/. The Russian defense industry annually produces as many air defense missiles as any other manufacturer in the world, and this instills confidence in Russia's victory in Ukraine. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday during a conversation with workers at the Obukhov plant, which is part of the Almaz-Antey concern.

    “We, for example, produce more than three times more air defense missiles that you produce per year than in the United States. In general, our defense industry produces about the same amount of air defense missiles for various purposes per year as all the military industrial enterprises of the world produce. Our production is comparable to world production," the president said.

    BREAKING NEWS: White House insiders leak that President Biden has authorized money to assist Poland with mobilizing its troops because "We're running out of Ukrainians much faster than we had calculated and that Russian meat grinder ain't gonna feed itself."

    BREAKING NEWS: British officials leak that the royal family will be donating an old suit of armor and a jousting shield to the Ukrainian army soon. A defense official reportedly added, "My son has a plastic star wars light saber that will be added to the next shipment of arms."

    BREAKING NEWS: Italian Government insiders leak that a catapult that was found at an an old Roman battlefield excavation site will be shipped to the Ukrainian army. The Italian defense minister reportedly said, "They can have it, but they've gotta supply their own boulders."

    Dr.Snufflebug wrote:Seen Twitter people claim that footage exists of it burning in the air, but I haven't been able to find any.

    In fact, can only find one short clip of it flying overhead in a wooded area, presumably on the outskirts of Brovary. It is not on fire there, but the ventral anti-collision light is quite bright. Perhaps people misinterpreted that?

    An eyewitness quoted in Ukrainian media said that it flew in a wide circle for a while, before suddenly rapidly losing altitude. Technical fault is IMO the most likely cause. I'd imagine that maintenance is a bitch.

    Found one more video of it flying, over a suburban residential area. People claim it's on fire/smoking in the clip, but I honestly only see some faint exhaust.

    He was on Myrotvorets for ages, Ukrainian crazies hate him and already sniffed him out. Arestovych himself would jump sides to Russia if that would benefit him more, no doubt about that. He is not ideologically motivated and that’s big no for some. His last video, he said he doesn’t hold grudge on all Russians… It might be him washing his hands from the regime if things turn sour.

    Prigozhin He made several statements. He claims that there are many in Russia who care about losing the war with Ukraine. Overall, I think it's overkill. What do you think?

    Strange, it's almost as if bullets, bombs and artillery shells don't care if you're Ukrainian or British.

    Laughing Laughing Laughing fighting as a mercenary in a foreign country and telling stories at social media but expecting special (better) treatment when captured. I say play stupid games, win stupid prices and embrace the suck. Also keeping it ''secret'' for your battlebudies by sewing in in a hidden place. Trustworthy guy.....

    The Grond Launch Small Diameter Bomb is not good news if true. Will really step up the hunt for MLRS launchers as well as another reason to destroy rail/road links with NATO countries..

    🇺🇸 🇺🇦🇷🇺Politico writes  that the new package of military assistance to Ukraine will include the Stryker armored personnel carrier and specific GLSDB ammunition for American MLRS with a range of 150km (100 miles).

    The Ground-Launched Small Diameter Bomb has about twice the range of the HIMARS' GMLRS and is a heavier munition, which will complicate Russian C2 and logistics. Ukraine needs more armored vehicles and Strikers are a better option for transporting infantry in battle than MRAPs.

    The US is going to provide GLSDB to Ukraine. Nasty weapons. But as expected, Ukraine is the testing ground for NATO's frontline armaments.

    #Canada will transfer #Ukraine 200 Roshel Senator armored vehicles.
    This was announced by Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand during her visit to #Kyiv.


    From Roshel website My highlight

    "The Senator APC is a Roshel's flagship model able to serve a wide variety of scenarios efficiently. Roshel designs this high-performance multi-purpose armored personnel carrier specifically for law enforcement and border patrol applications. The Senator APC is a unique product in terms of technical characteristics, design and assembly."

    via Roshel The Senator is technically for police and military applications, which is why it looks like a tank. And also comes equipped with a turret, gun ports, ballistic glass capable of stopping a .50 cal, run-flat tires, and an armored floor that's capable of taking a mine blast without killing everyone inside.
