    Looks like Wagner will yet again have to do all the heavy lifting and Russian Military will keep pretending​ how they were totally helping out and didn't get their asses kicked repeatedly



    But at least they will have nice new uniforms from "start-up" company which totally isn't knockoff of American stuff...

    They're missing the VKS and artillery on those positions

    This has been going on since the beginning of the damn SMO

    Idk why the **** these rules of engagement persist

    Stupid ass leadership keep sparing the nazi fucks

    Noone is Russia gives a flying **** about treating these animals softly, and none give a **** about western perception

    So why the **** does leadership keep sending flesh and blood into a grinder?

    They keep talking that ukros are fodder, well ours are excellent beef grinded as well

    Ffs LEVEL THE DAMN PLACE AND BE DONE WITH IT

    John, if it's not a problem for you, just change Kyiv to Kiev.. thumbsup
    My eyes hurt when I see that..

    Your eyes should hurt, and the rest of your senses, because this is what the city is now. A twisted mockery of its once-glory. Kyiv.

    Bro we have seen this shit on repeat

    Why is it that wagner is moving forward but actual army units cannot?

    I will tell you

    Wagner is blasting the **** out of Artemovsk proper

    I have seen videos of them literally raining fire on the city and ukros are hiding in a basement

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #38 - Page 6 Scree129

    You see those faggots hiding?

    That's cus wagner artillery is keeping them there

    But I don't see 155th or VKS hitting these bitches and leveling the buildings

    What civilians do we give a shit about?

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #38 - Page 6 Scree130


    That's bad news falling on top of their heads

    This is what is needed, not a damn mobilization or a damn order of increasing production

    If the VKS levelled this whole place, we would talk about mopping up operations only

    Most of those vehicles look abandoned with various degrees of damage. But only a few are actually roasted. So no need for sensationalism. They can be recovered and repaired later. Main priority is preserving personnel. If you lose qualified personnel you can't just produce more in some factory, or mix & match parts to get them working again. Manpower and the tolerance of society for loses among their loved ones is the ultimate limiting factor; not how well you take care of your armour.

    And Arkhangelsk, much as I would like those apartment blocs to be demonstratively leveled with Kinzhals; you know they can't do that. Mariupol already demonstrated how they would garrison the top floor with goons while keeping civilians in the lower floors or basements, as shields of a sort. Probably the same deal in Ugledar. Urban warfare is very ugly and losses are inevitable. Especially when you can't simply raze the city block by block with artillery as you advance. Russia can't do that there as that's our own people.

    Wagner was successful in Soledar primarily because they outmaneuvered and tricked the Ukrainian defenders, and managed to wedge themselves in and then liquidate its large garrison without further issue.
    That sort of thing is not always possible to replicate though, and when you can't replicate it you can end up with a battle like Mariupol where the city just has to be probed and picked apart piece by piece.

    Rostec officially announced the end of state tests of special grenades capable of sheltering people and equipment from high-precision guided missiles .

       The novelty creates an impenetrable cloud for thermal imaging devices, RIA Novosti reports.

    AFU lost drones in Artemovsk due to "trench" electronic warfare: details

    Since January 2023, UAV operators of several large AFU formations in Artemovsk have lost at least a hundred commercial drones used to adjust artillery and mortars. Drones do not have time to reach the positions of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation—they are suppressed by previously unknown electronic warfare complexes.

    For the first time, units of the 80th separate airborne assault brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine encountered such a phenomenon in November last year in the area of Kremennaya; however, mass failures of drones since the end of January have been recorded only in the area of Artemovsk (Bakhmut).

    The mass neutralization of Ukrainian drones may be related to the operation of portable electronic warfare stations that appeared at the front relatively recently. According to the AFU radio intercepts, we may be talking about a small device placed either in the nearest forest or directly on the ground, in the same trench as the infantry.

    According to captured UAV operators of the armed forces of Ukraine, when enemy drones are detected in the sky, the system automatically begins intercepting and forcibly landing the drone outside the positions of the Ukrainian infantry.

    Due to the operation of such devices near settlements in the south of Artemovsk (Bakhmut), liberated from the Ukrainian army in the autumn and early winter of 2022, the Armed Forces of Ukraine almost completely stopped conducting aerial reconnaissance, dropping grenades, and spraying toxic substances over the positions of ground units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

    I mostly agree with you, but I'm not sure if the planning and  tactics are right. These vehicle losses are too high for such a small part of the front  line. You don't have to be a military genius to see that charging over wide open pre-mined  fields with plenty of drones overhead and unsuppressed arty is suicidal. Not to mention that they got bogged down after some successes in first few days.

    Yevgeny Prigozhin said that the PMC "Wagner" received more than 10 million applications
    from US citizens wishing to join the ranks of the group.

    He was trolling CNN and other "news outlets" with that comment.
    But it´s getting better:

    Vitaly Milonov: Americans who join Wagner PMC will be able to obtain Russian citizenship.

    He is trolling.

    Anyway, I have just figured one thing.

    The info provided that they ae closing recruitment of convicted.

    Well ... they run out of candidates. As easy as that.

    Russkie prisoners base is well below the US one - not only the population size, but MUCH lower "per1k" stats.

    Russkie have some 350k of prisoners, all of them.

    A big number are woman.

    Some are overaged.

    So what is left makes ... 200k?

    How many you can recruit there, considering that you exclude murderers, drug addicts, dealers, rapers?
    You end up with thieves ...

    150k?

    How many you have there left?

    One of the reasons Wagner is capable of better advancement than the actual russian army is simple, they do not have to adhere to these silly ROE's.

    I also suspect as Wagner has experienced commanders given their smaller size whereas the Russian army clearly has incompetent fools in various areas which is often a peace time problem people who get promoted often aren't good in field commanders and are just good at boot licking and going by the book to get promotions

    Russia also recruited convicts, that said Ukraine has millions more men left even by pro-russian sources, they aren't in any danger of running out of men, why this silly narrative keeps getting persisted is foolish.

    It's not true at all, no matter how much you want to believe it.

    To FP

    And why is Kiev "Kyiv" ?
    The culprit for what you got in Ukroshitstan is not primarily the West, but the Russians themselves, who agreed to let the red vermin tear apart the former state both religiously and territorially. Russia has existed since the end of the 9th century and not since 1917. And whether you like it or not, you Russians did lose millions of Russians who became Ukroshitstans from 1922 due to the harmful influence of Bolshevism. Millions have forgotten their roots in Ukroshitstan. That's why that shithole is Kyiv today. LENIN is the greatest enemy of Russia ever and Russians are still dying in Ukroshitstan because of him. Is this true ? I think it is..

    This is not exclusive to just Marines. Both Russian and Ukrainian army just throws armoured vehicles at problems. Vuhledar is a shitshow and very poor performance by both sides. Well, now Russian marines are being paraded as POWs. At least this batch wasn’t executed.

    “Most of those vehicles look abandoned with various degrees of damage. But only a few are actually roasted. So no need for sensationalism“

    Just like the ones during Northern Offensive or Kharkov? Loss is a loss.

    Supposedly these losses. It was a panicked shitshow. NSFW, man is burning
