    Oho!

    I see the usual mantra already running.
    Bachmut is strategically irrelevant.
    Can you smell the Peremoga yet?

    An interesting fact.
    The art group that made this graffiti with Cocainsky is Polish origin.
    So much about "all Poles love the Ukro".

    Can you smell the Peremoga yet?

    I thought it is Spring, but whatever Laughing
    The thing that buzzes me is why they have started so high on the peremoga scenario this time Laughing

    There are about 10 thousand #Ukrainian soldiers in #Bakhmut, who are supplied by one road. If it is cut or taken under fire control by #Russian troops, then the withdrawal of units will become problematic. #Zaluzhny once again refused to send reserves from Zaporozhye to Bakhmut.

    Mayor Vitaly Klitschko says a factory in Darnytsky district in Kyiv, has exploded.

    Reports suggest it was used as a Ukrainian army barracks. There was no air raid siren.

    This is either another smoking “accident” or Ukrainian air defense “victory”😏

    All autocorrections now are changing the spelling to this ukropiggy.
    As I said, it is just a coincidence.

    Edit : just a routine HIMARS missiles interception, nothing to watch here, carry on ... Laughing

    https://t.me/DonbassDevushka/43934

    Four were intercepted wth 4 missiles expense.
    The last time when they have taken out a whole salvo, the expense was 1:1 either.
    Unbelievable.

    "Russia prepares thousands of tanks and armoured vehicles and hundreds of fighter jets for offensive"

    "Russians have prepared 1,800 tanks, 3,950 armoured vehicles, 2,700 artillery systems, 810 multiple-rocket-launch systems, 400 fighter jets, and 300 helicopters ready for a new offensive operation in Ukraine.

    Source: Foreign Policy, citing a Ukrainian military official, speaking on condition of anonymity

    Quote: "Russia has also begun arming up and digging in for a coming offensive. The Ukrainian military estimates that Russia already has 1,800 tanks, 3,950 armoured vehicles, 2,700 artillery systems, 810 Soviet-era multiple-rocket-launch systems such as Grad and Smerch, 400 fighter jets, and 300 helicopters ready for a new wave of attacks."

    Details: Ukrainian officials estimate that Russian forces inside the country have surpassed the 300,000 mark.

    "It’s much bigger than what took place in the first wave," the Ukrainian military official said. "They are not paying attention to any casualties or losses."

    "In the next 10 days, we expect a new, huge invasion," he said.

    Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said that he expected a surge in Russian operations around the upcoming anniversary of the invasion on 24 February.

    Analysts and Ukrainian officials expect the brewing offensive to focus on eastern Ukraine."

    This happens when I write the names of the cities of Ukroshitstan (except for Lugansk, which is a Russian city) in Serbian and in English I get the correct translation for all cities except for Kharkov, Nikolaev and Odessa. I change that garbage when I transfer some text..
    I typed the Latin version to make it clearer.. Its 50% - 50%....

    Of minor interest, the company that developed it and that just started mass-producing it is called Gardariki, the old Norse name for Rus' lands. It appears to be a start-up by a 22-year old guy who did his military service in the legendary Preobrazhensky regiment.
    Founded less than a year ago by the 22-year-old son of the deputy head of the Federal Property Management Agency, the OKB Gardarika company "invented" a new uniform for the RF Armed Forces and sells it at prices 7-8 times higher than comparable uniforms done by other private companies. Not to mention that production started a month ago and uniform was already approved by MoD. Nice "startup". There's more posts with accompanied photos in thread about uniforms.

    Prigozhin announced the termination of the recruitment of prisoners in PMC "Wagner"


    The recruitment of employees to the Russian PMC "Wagner" from correctional institutions is no longer conducted. This was announced by the curator of a private military company Evgeny Prigozhin.

    The official Telegram channel of the press service of PMCs speaks of a complete cessation of recruitment to Wagner from prisoners in Russian penal colonies. Prigozhin also assured that all obligations to the already existing Wagner employees recruited in correctional institutions are being fulfilled in full.

    It is reported that recruitment to PMC "Wagner" from among persons serving sentences in penitentiary institutions has not been conducted for more than a month.

    Earlier, Yevgeny Prigozhin announced the completion of a six-month contract by the first group of more than twenty former prisoners who took part in the Russian special operation in Ukraine. They all received pardons. The curator of PMC "Wagner" also added that among the pardoned a large number of those who ended up behind bars by accident or due to weakness of character. He also noted that after the end of participation in the armed conflict in Ukraine, Wagner will continue its activities on the African continent.

    The head of the Kremlin press service Dmitry Peskov, in turn, said that the pardon of former prisoners who took part in the special operation in Ukraine does not contradict existing Russian laws. Peskov also stressed that decrees of this kind can be drawn up and signed behind closed doors, but all the procedures they regulate do not go beyond the legal framework.

    To be honest, Zelensky's blatant disregard for protocol might even annoy some otherwise die-hard ukrofanatics in the EU. It just reeks fake and tacky.

    Ukro nazis should be wiped from the earth I think the executions indeed happened in Svatovo - Kremennaya area The most of the Russian blood has been shed in this area - countless videos of the bmp crew shredded, of the army group executed by mercenaries , and now a full detachment drilled in the heads by ak47s That area by Liman and Kupyansk should be carpet bombed In fact when a squad is dangerously close to annihilation, they should call army aviation and KA52 should come , with precise weapons to blast these scum If precise weapons are to be used, it is in situations like that, guys are surrounded unable to escape, send the airpower and start working with IR, get drones over the surrounded detachment and call in krasnopol strikes But somehow these recon groups always end up executed when caught wrote:

    Does not even need to be this elaborate. Having a couple of 80mm or even 60mm mortars dedicated to providing immediate fire support in these probing missions is probably enough to ensure they can escape if ambushed.

    30 Russian armoured losses recorded on the Ugledar front. Looks like they still haven't breached the town's main perimeter.
