    Montenegro better keep nato on its side. Their biggest threat are the albanians who could try to seize the bordering territories. They don't have a military that can defend them.

    Those 10 million are probably 100k$ of dumb stuff like ak rounds left from former yougoslavian army. You know like when you value your 12 abrams 1.5 billion when actual price is closer to 100 million. That's a common propaganda tactic in nato, over valuating their help.

    The separation of Montenegro from Serbia was an absurdity. Their antirussian behaviour another one.

    Probably they will have to pay for all their mistakes. Possibly after EU and american collapse.

    The separation of Montenegro from Serbia and its subsequent fast-tracked and highly undemocratic (corrupt, literal mafia boss Djukanovic runs the place you know) NATO accession was hilarious.

    Well, Montenegro looks more and more like Ukroshitstan and those who identify themselves as Montenegrins almost hate Serbia more than Albanians.
    Close to 30% of the population who identify themselves as Serbs live in Montenegro.
    This is the main weapon of the West and the Anglo-Saxons, that is, the malignant installation of pro-Western and corrupt regimes that poison the masses of the people through their rule.

    But that was a case lads.
    They tasked to landlock Serbia, as it will keep it fragile against NATO expansion and the general western agenda.
    That is why potential Russkie control of the Danube delta is so much gamechanger.
    The real one.

    Still from the professional perspective, we can't not applaud how effective those fukers are in reversing the minds of people, to make them the opposite of what they really are.
    They are taking the same folks, and spoiling their minds for so long/so effectively, that they consider themselves different breeds.
    Amazing.
    And scary.

    I think Montenegro is being intentionally disarmed in order to become part of a "Greater Albania" in the future.

    Same case in Poland, it is meant to be divided between Germany and Ukraine.

    Same for Slovakia, to be "re-integrated" into Hungary.

    Slovenia will probably be partitioned among Austria, Hungary, and Italy.


    That is why Hungary gives nothing to Ukraine, and they are not punished and not even criticized for it. Austria also gives nothing, albeit it is formally neutral. Italy gives, but they can afford to.

    There is no anti russian feelings in Montenegro. They have bought almost all the coast and plenty of russian live there and now with ukrainian neighbours.

    Everything is good for russians there.

    The government has to follow nato rules regarding Russia. They need nato protection and money help from EU. That's a country that uses Euro as a money eventhough it's not part of EU.

    Relations with serbia are pretty good. Plenty of serbian stuff is sold there and they all travel between the 2 countries. Independance didn't change that much their cooperation.

    Nationalists on both side make the situation worse but is mostly for political goals. People still lack decent jobs no matter who's in charge. They still lack investments.


    But that's funny. Serbians are critic them for their pro EU stance but Serbian also wants to join EU and certainly not Russia or Brics.

    To ISOS

    I have not gone to the polls for 20 years, precisely because all the leading political parties are advocating entry into the EU.
    It bothers me because I know that before joining the EU Serbia will be forced to join NATO.
    You see, there is a problem and the majority of Serbs are against it, that is, against joining NATO.

    You said that there is no antirussian feeling in Montenegro, but all decisions taken from the government are antirussian. I do not see much protests there.

    Actually many African countries are much more honest and courageous as they are kicking the french away.

    When will we (Europeans) manage to kick the Americans put of our countries?

    I am talking especially for my country of birth (Italy) and for my host country (Germany).

    There is no antirussian feelings. They are very welcomed there. They even use russian language on their adds in the streets to attract russian customers. I see that every year since I go there for vacations.

    Government decisions like I said are made in coordination with EU because they aim at joining EU. Supporting Putin will bring nothing to them.

    Serbia support Putin but russian investment in Serbia are nowhere. Gov's role is to make their people life better even if it needs to take dumb and cobtradictory decisions.

    Germany will never kick US ouy. It's the US G.Is that protect germany. German people are not willing to sign in the army. You gave your own country to the US. Don't cry now they control you. Same for Italia.

    Isos is right about both Montenegro and Serbia. And I'll add one more thing about Montenegro. There was a lot of illegal and semi-legal Russian money that entered country just before Great Recession of 2008-09. Russians were bringing cash in suitcases and bought properties, without asking about price. Montenegrin government at the time (Djukanovic was prime minister) looked the other way. Real estate prices went through the roof. Even if Russian properties are being confiscated in rest of Europe, I truly doubt that same will happen in Montenegro. Population is, in general, very friendly toward Russians.

    However, I would still like to hear from you about what 2+2 makes.
    Because the last time you presented the lack of basics math.
    So you know, before hearing about global issues and politics, I would like to hear the basics.

    I've heard recently that some unofficial estimates are saying there are around 40% of population there who feel as Serbs.  Wink

    I'm going regularly on the elections and vote for all of them, because they are all a piece of shit.   Laughing

    To Littlerabbit....

    That's right my countryman, that's exactly the only truth. I remember that a year or two after the overthrow of Milošević, a political analyst said that in 15+ years there will come a time when the political authorities will only do what they are told to do from the West, while the people of Serbia will accept everything as a factual situation.
    At that time, as a fairly young person, that analyst's statement was strange to me, but I remembered those words and I see that as a country we are not far from that.

    Of course they liked Russian money. Too bad they also participated to the sanctions against Russia.

    It's like a prostitute that says she loves you when you pay her.

    I am not talking about the general population, but the government. And like the case of my own country, the population has the government it deserves

    Seems reasonable, the longer this war goes on the more Ukrainian territory Russia will take, the more Ukronazis and Mercenaries that will be killed and the more deindustrialized Europe will become. Ending this war too soon would be a mistake.
    In the same video Prigozhin takes about reaching the English Channel and that he has a plan for that, too. 
    In other words: He was kidding.

    RF Armed Forces massive Missile Strike on Infrastructure in #Ukraine on 10 Feb 2023 - what is known by 15:00:zap:

    💥 The RF Armed Forces have struck critical infrastructure sites in #Ukraine.

    During the night, Geran-2 drones were predominantly used. Air defence position areas were opened and several critical infrastructure facilities in the south and east of #Ukraine were hit.

    In the morning, the Russian Aerospace Forces launched a series of missile strikes against targets across the country.

    🔹 What is known by this hour?

    ▪ #Kharkov: overnight 👉 strikes hit the engine room of CHP-5 in the south-west of the city.
    ➖ In the morning, strikes on enemy facilities in #Kharkov continued, with local authorities reporting power outages in several districts of the city and region.
    ➖ There were reports of delays in the underground and problems with the internet in the city.

    ▪ #Zaporozhye: the target of the 👉 strike was the 1st engine room of the #Dnieper hydroelectric power plant.
    ➖ The hall has relatively low capacity and old equipment. The likelihood that the damage caused would disrupt the operation of the entire plant is extremely low.
    ➖ One of the fired shells hit a nearby outbuilding.
    ➖ Some parts of the city are experiencing power and internet problems.

    ▪ #Dnepropetrovsk region: A missile 👉 hit the engine room of the Krivoy Rog TPP near #Zelenodolsk, destroying at least one turbine and damaging steam lines.
    ➖ One of the generators stopped generating power and was permanently disabled.

    ▪ #Khmelnytsky region: several energy infrastructure facilities in Khmelnytsky and Shepetovsky district were hit, with electricity and internet problems observed in the oblast.

    ▪ Ivano-Frankovsk region: According to preliminary data, the Burshtyn Thermal Power Plant could have been targeted again - the plant stopped generating power during the massive strikes.
    ➖ At the same time, the facility's capacity decreased slowly - suggesting that Ukrainian power engineers may have deliberately shut it down before the attack.

    ▪ #Kiev and the region: In #Kiev, CHPP-5 and several other targets in other parts of the city were hit. Local authorities reported power grid damage.

    ▪ Several strikes are known to have occurred in the #Odessa region. According to local sources, the #Usatovo 330 substation caught fire.

    ▪ The RF Armed Forces also struck unspecified facilities in #Kherson region, near #Kremenchuk, #Kramatorsk and #Vinnitsa.

    ▪In #Zhytomyr, #Kirovograd, #Nikolayev and #Lvov regions, air defence assets were triggered.
    ➖ Shortly before the missile attack, authorities conducted preventive power cuts in some regions of the country.

    ▪ Following the strikes, Ukrainian Railways reported train delays on the #Kharkov, #Kiev and #Kramatorsk routes.

    ▪ #Moldova said that Russian missiles allegedly entered the country's airspace and flew over #Transnistria as well as the #Soroca region bordering #Ukraine.
    ➖ The republic's Ministry of Foreign Affairs summoned the Russian ambassador.

    📌 Today's wave of strikes hit more targets than the previous one. It cannot but be gratifying that this time machine rooms were chosen as targets rather than autotransformers, as had been the case previously.

    Accurate hits on equipment in turbine halls guarantee extremely long-lasting repairs to facilities, and consequently a dramatic drop in power generation at stations.

    Still, such attacks must be carried out systematically. Disabling #Ukraine's power infrastructure would make logistics, as well as repairs to equipment and the enemy's industry, much more difficult.

    Rumor has it that the Russians pretty much copy-pasted the Ukrainian USV-idea. Bunch of these I guess British-developed semi-submerged sabotage drones were previously caught in the act around Sevastopol, before they did any damage.

    But that was a novel thing, anyway.

    Now they're saying that Russia did a "right back at ya" by bombing bridges in the Odessa region with similar USVs, seemingly developed on the fly, ad-hoc. Russia hadn't bothered with these things until she was attacked by them, now she is bothered, I suppose. And wham.
