    The air raid sirens are part of the show. They get those running every time some westerner is visiting with a camera crew. It's been blatantly obvious in the past, even more so now since it is well known that these visits only occur after they've spoken to Russia about it.

    Kind of like Zelensky's bravery. Only once they had spoken to Russia and Russia guaranteed they wouldn't bomb the Rada building or the government palace in Kiev (they still haven't, a year in!) or otherwise target Zelensky did he emerge from the bunker.

    Such a circus. Problem is, Russia's continued goodwill doesn't really help Russia in any way. But that's another story.

    Cocainsky is the Russian best asset.

    The scale of this circus was revealed even by some MSM - AP for example ...

    The Duran did a video on it. They say that Russia wants everyone in Russia to see this to know that this is a war with the US. But everyone in Russia knows that already.

    Allowing these visits is a net negative propaganda wise inside Russia. Plus Russia thinks the US is dealing in good faith once again. As i said , one of these times , there will be rooftop snipers ready for a false flag. And it will be all on Russia.

    Defense Politics Asia had a panel about tanks and had 3 American tankers on it. At around 12 minutes , they talk about how with a tank, as you approach the 50 yard line , you should charge. And Russia is doing this. And this is making the Javlin less effective. This is probably what was going on in Ugledar too. But yeah. Not every line charge goes perfectly

    ZSU-23-4 taking part in some assault. cheers

    They are Pacific Fleet marines I believe dunno
    Still using it, good enough for a theatre.
    And that is a formidable support weapon, especially in the forest area of Kremennaya. I wrote it a while ago. Good HEF round that rains splitters like there is no tomorrow. Delicate enough to ignite by hitting the bush Twisted Evil
    Guys from VDV were just harvesting the whole area with ZU-23-2 on BMD ... That monster makes about 3x more firepower Laughing
    Yes I know, it is just 2x more barrels, but those are cooled and can shoot longer Twisted Evil

    On the left, according to the Ukrainian media, a train "with fuel for the occupiers" was blown up in Russia. But it turns out that this is a photo of 2016, a fire in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.

    This proves two things:

    There is much better than that.
    It proves first of all, that the Anglosaxons know that Russia can be trusted.
    And the whole world is watching that, making its own judgments.
    It proves how much a show is the whole surroundings - the sirens roaring, while they just walked by.
    And the whole world is watching that, making its own judgments.
    The thing jumps out of the box so much, that even MSM started to choke ...

    We had a discussion in this thread about sabotage in Russia. Some claimed it was accidents being over-interpreted as sabotage. Well,
    according to Hersch's sources there are sleeper cells in Russia and they have been activated. Mercouris speculates that it is the UK that
    is involved since it has a lot of hostile "ex-pat Russians" to use for such activity. It can recruit these losers and send them back.

    But it looks to me like the sabotage is a fail. It has not disrupted any economic activity or supplies to the front. No, it has not resulted
    in any munitions shortage so the Wagner melodrama is some other BS.

    Rishi Sunak has come out of the closet on what the NATzO weapons are for. They are for killing Russians. So Europe must sacrifice
    the last tank and shell for the effort to kill Russians. Truly the UK is a diseased with hate for Russians.

    BTW, the majority of people in the lands currently occupied by Russia are ethnic Russians. NATzO routinely gives itself the right to invade
    countries and engage in regime change on the pretext of human rights. Clearly NATzO considers Russians to be untermenschen without
    any human rights. NATzO is begging a final solution for itself.

    Mercouris totally missed the boat with his cursory analysis of the Munich Security Conference. It was a war on Russia
    hate fest. Borrell asserted that Europe is Ukraine's army. The consensus was that Russia cannot be allowed to be seen
    to wind. So these motherf*ckers ware escalating this to WWIII. Stoltenberg and others stated that the risk for NATzO
    of Russia winning is worse than any escalation of the conflict to include NATzO.

    So the masturbatory talk of Kiev winning has given way to shrieking for war on Russia by the "united" NATzO west.
