    I find this quite amusing. U would think Zelensky had more on his plate to deal with and not bother complaining about such. But I suppose sanctions options have dried is this all they have left? lol! And it was rejected lol!

    Olympics head rejects Zelenskiy call to ban Russian athletes from Paris Games.

    Kyiv, which says at least 228 Ukrainian athletes and coaches have been killed in Russia’s invasion, argues Moscow will seek political advantage from the participation of Russian athletes and has threatened to pull out if they are allowed to take part.

    Son, what was daddy saying?
    But can I repeat the bad words?
    No!
    So he said not much.

    Edit : just for the records ... McGregor's latest entry put the Ukrainian population at 37.4 mln before the war started.

    A few days after I revealed the number from the online survey 2019.

    A number nobody in the English sphere revealed till then.

    I love the coincidences.

    And math is racist.

    Olympic athletes would be special forces material so they probably lost quite a large number over Snake Island alone, and then a lot would also be lost behind enemy lines hunting tanks and trying to capture supply and logistics troops...

    Well, probably in a few years there will be museums in the territories of novorussian and malorussian regions dedicated to the Ukrainian terror.

    Furthermore, I believe that the word "Ukrainian" will not be anymore that much appreciated.

    "Finally they took the Red Mountain"

    📝 Military commissar Marat Khairullin from the Bakhmut area:

    ▪ Krasnaya Gora is the dominant heights, including above Paraskovievka, which is very important for the Armed Forces of Ukraine as a strategic object : from here last week they tried to make a big counteroffensive to push our forces towards Soledar and Seversk.

    ▪ Paraskovievka is a very interesting object. Here is a large salt mine named after Volodarsky, which was a secret object of the SBU two years ago. There was a lot of construction going on at depths of up to 700 meters. What they were doing there - in these salt halls the size of football fields - is not yet clear , so there are battles for Paraskovievka.

    ▪ Also there are very old weapons depots, a logistics center for supplying the army was organized. And, let me remind you, the settlement guards the M 03 highway - the main route to Slavyansk.

    ▪ New systems of counter-battery combat are now being actively received in this direction. We are becoming more efficient: electronic warfare systems, new "Solntsepeks", with which they practically burned out Red Mountain.

    Dima from Military Summary insists it is too late for a large scale offensive by Russia. But cold weather is in the forecast. Not sure if he noticed.

    And some others of his ilk are saying that a Putin speech and big offensive is imminent.

    Nazilesnksy will quit the Paris games if Paris lets Russia in? To be sure, I don't watch much olympic sport. I just see it as a bunch of wanking to the flag over sport that nobody really cares about. That said, I can think of maybe one Ukrainian olympic athlete and she hasn't been active since the mid 1990s. Now back to the war, what is the update on Ugledar and Bakhmut?

    Who gives a shit about Olympics. Why even post it? Hell, I'll point out a known fact: Olympics have dropped in viewership so much, that NHL games get more views.

    Destroying Leopard is a matter of making Kornet proliferate throughout, as well as Metis - if no offensive will be conducted set up ambushes before the great Ukro offensive wrote:

    They are not getting the latest Leopard. RPG 7 will take out the ones they are getting

    Not that difficult to intercept either for a THAAD or PAC-3.

    Iskander is hypersonic only in the terminal phase. Just like the Kinzhal and the Zircon.

    None of these missiles fly at hypersonic from launch to impact. Missiles that are unable to fly at hypersonic speed from start to finish can be intercepted quite easily.

    Yes, THAAD and PAC-3 destroy Iskanders, just as F-15/16/18/22/35 fly over the sky of Ukroshitstan.
    The powerful Abrams and Leopard-2 destroy the T-72/80/90 on the territory of Ukroshitstan. The only problem is that it's all this is happening only in your head.

    Judging by this video, Ukraine is close to the final victory over Russia. (sarcasm):

    https://t.me/ASupersharij/16093

    The video shows the process of another forced mobilization into the Ukrainian army - a guy was captured at the market when he inadvertently ventured into the streets of the city.

    Oh no, you shouldn't disrespect monkeys that way.
    My friend worked with chimps.
    They are unbelievably smart and capable of strategic thinking.
    For example one of the chimps he cared about hated kids.
    No idea why, just a fact.
    He was collecting his own poo for a whole week, to unleash the load on the Saturday visitors that were comming with kids usually. He was throwing his stinky granades on them, dancing and smiling Laughing Laughing Laughing

    I wouldn't expect the same level of planning from my zoo cage single-species team leader Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

    Just like Garry has said.
    They are great trained people at the peak of physical training, assisted by very strong mental preparation&motivation.
    A natural reservoir for special forces recruitment, and they have been thrown into the fire tens of times only for staging commercials.
    Or carry a terror campaign that ends up tearing them apart with FAE grenades in some forest around Belogorod on the house of FSB.

    Around 1.5 thousand troops of 125th territorial defense brigade, 24th mechanized and 57th motorized infantry brigades of APU are stationed in Paraskovievka, north of Bakhmut/Artemovsk.
    They are encircled, the last road, E40 has been cut off.

    Not creating maps of minefields or not sharing them is a long tradition in the Ukrainian army.

    New units rotated to the front were told to pay the old unit leaving to get minefield maps, or go out and make their own. And that unit would later do the same when they got rotated.

    Like, did it ever occur to the Napoleon here why exactly he and his butt buddies have trained 12 waves (Yes, turnaround's that fucking insane) and counting of dudes fresh from the street?

    Probably not. Or maybe the plan really is to choke the Russian artillerists with so much Ukrainian bodies until they die of tren overdose or someshit. Razz

    Greyzone reports that the RU MOD banned prigozhin from recruiting prisoners, withheld, artillery and EW support, as well as air support from wagner in bakhmut, because Prigozhin criticized shoigu for allowing his daughter to party in dubai and in western countries. The hasty assault on ugledar was done because the Ru MOD generals were jealous of prigozhin and hate that wagner is the one making the largest gains. Greyzone is affiliated with wagner, and reports the views of wagner soldiers, however caveat emptr said he makes sensationalist posts sometimes, so this sabotage on the Ru MOD's part could be exagerrated.

    Worrying reports coming from greyzone channel. The gist of it being that it appears to be some rift between Ru MOD and Wagner which spawned its own consequences, main one being the Ugledar fiasco as well as MOD shutting down the prisoner pipeline for wagner.

    GZ takes based on talks on the ground is that recent successes of the orchestra has made the fossil generals and Ru MOD look bad so they took steps to hamper the work of wagner. As well as attempted an woefully unprepared offensive on Ugledar so as to not look completely incompetent in the wake of orchestras successes in Bakhmut. The offensive caused needless loss of life with negative results. Buryats who are very reserved also criticized MOD without specifically mentioning them which lends credence to there being a problem with commanders.

    Prigozhin in a recent interview with wargonzo confirmed that there appears to be a halt in prisoner recruitment without specifying exact reason. Which lends credence to greyzones claim that the recruiting process for orchestra is being hampered with.

    🔸EW units nonexistent

    🔸Initial artillery salvo prior to storming was shut down fast by UA counter battery with no answer

    🔸Z counter battery nonexistent

    🔸Air support non existant

    🔸Seemingly no strategy other than sending in columns of armored against precision artillery

    🔸Nonexistent sapper and engineering units to clear obstacles

    🔸Severe miscommunication between units leading to a utter clusterfck. This has been confirmed by motorized reinforcements.

    These are not my claims but greyzones, I am just highlighting them in the name of transparency and because I know there are not many other pro Z who cover it. I like healthy discussions and constructive criticism.
