    They can’t do much, it’s not like Russia can attack Pakistan to make them stop. All they can do is to offer something that would change Pakistans mind.

    And for Pakistan, they are like Turkey and they don’t care about both sides killing each other

    Wagner group continues advance in Artyomovsk amid fierce fighting, says Russian MD, 04.15.2023.

    The Russian Defense Ministry reported that over the past 24 hours, the country's forces have taken almost the entire territory of Artyomovsk (Bakhmut), in addition to destroying numerous other Ukrainian units.

    Units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are destroying urban infrastructure and residential buildings in Artyomovsk during their withdrawal, to slow the advance of Russian troops, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Saturday (15).

    According to the Ministry, the fiercest fighting in the entire Donetsk region took place near Artyomovsk, with assault units of the Wagner group advancing and taking possession of two blocks on the northern and southern outskirts of the city.

    "The remaining units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Artyomovsk are deliberately destroying the city's infrastructure and residential buildings to slow the advance of our troops, while retreating," according to the Ministry.

    And India's making friends with the US...

    Kind of hypocritical on multiple levels to cry about making friends with people who arm your enemies, don't you think?

    Andrei Martyanovs latest video - he drops quite a bombshell at 29:27 where he states that his sources say that Moskva was likely sunk as a result of sabotage - there was no missile attack and the fire began in one of the ammunition storage compartments.  Shocked Yup, IMHO that was always the most likely cause.

    Lavrov is acting in the rational interests of Russia instead of being a petty little bitch like NATO "diplomats" and politicians.   Who would
    have thought that Russia and Turkey could get along to the point of Turkey undermining NATO over Ukraine.    Engaging Pakistan is
    better than helping the US control it by attacking it.

    Consider Baerbock's pathetic attempt to browbeat China. Lavrov is not an imbecile like this dollar green c*nt.

    So according to leaked US files, Putin not only has cancer, but Gerasimov and Patrushev were working to undermine him by handing a victory to the Ukraine

    Everyone knows the leaks are fake while sources are trying to run around and assure everyone they were real. As soon as main stream media got their hands on it and talking about "how damaging they were to US", that's when suspicion arose.

    They been saying Putin has been dying if cancer for years now. While guy can sit and talk for 4 hrs straight and is extremely coherent and fluent while Biden can't even do that for 10 mins.

    The west has been trying to put this wedge that somehow Gerasimov is some kind of evil genius. Remember the "doctrin"? Because the guy looks scary, the west tries to create a portrait of the guy without actually knowing him.

    Anyone falling for the leaks are being taken for a very long ride.

    Last report I saw was pakistani munitions killing ukrainian soldiers in their own howitzer dunno .

    Black markets for munitions are very well developed. Probably a shiton of foreign stuff goes in russian hands too. It's not like anyone want to stop that. Russians are no better,they sell to both Pakistan and India, north Korea and South Korea, they even maingain nato migs...

    NATO MiG fighter jets, I guess that would be in countries like Poland, Slovakia, Romania, Bulgaria.



    Russia had to fight the Ukrainian mercenaries in South Ossetia and Georgia back in early 1990's and in 2008, but it was always generous to Ukraine during these times; lots of free natural gas and free money.

    Such strategies will allow Pakistan to blackmail Russia for decades.

    Pakistan has a unique negotiating style

    Its diplomats have used deception, guilt trips and the "lower hand" to get what it wants

    Islamabad has used these tactics to ally with America, court China and take on India.

    It's clearly a different insignia though.

    Whose insignia is it?

    @Hole

    To be honest the insignia looks very different. The leg is bend on the bottom, it has not such curly fur, it has wings, it has a sword in it's hand.
    Similarities sure, but is this an SS Galichina insignia or just "modernized" version?

    It is the divisional insignia of the 14th SS Infantry Division "Galizien."





    A very blatant and extremely widespread manipulation of history is giving a false impression that all the Waffen-SS divisional "names" were given out as honorifics of some sort, and that not all Waffen-SS divisions had such names.


    In reality the "Russian Nr. 2" had the divisional name of "Weissruthenien" and it was not really Russian but Belarussian (there were also some ethnic Polish collaborators in it too).

    Also, the "Latvian Nr. 1" had the divisional name of "Lettland."


    Every single Waffen-SS division had its own name, they were not given out as some sort of honorifics.

    No the insignia the Australian Nazi is wearing appears to show an animal with wings and wielding a sword. It's not the Galicizia division emblem, although it does bear a resemblence.

    Kadyrov is taking some heat on Telegram for this. I don't see what the problem is. Should the whole Russian armed forces be like this? No. But this is Chechnya. They do things a bit differently. So what.

    Kadyrov:

    Five Chechen fighters returned to Grozny today from Ukrainian captivity.

    Journalists asked me what I think about this. I believe that a Chechen soldier should have no reason to be captured. Excuses may be different, but be that as it may, the warrior must prove that he had no other choice. And you need to prove it by returning to the front line.

    That's why I didn't meet with the returnees. This is a matter of honor not only for an individual fighter, but also a matter of honor for the entire unit, the entire regiment in which the fighters serve. Let them prove that they did not avoid battle, were not afraid to meet the enemy and did not look for an opportunity to lay down their arms and save themselves from bullets.

    An illustrative example was demonstrated by Kirgiz Musikhanov, who was wounded, captured, but returned, healed his wounds and again went into the thick of battles as part of the Akhmat special forces, showing good results .

    Of course, captivity is not a crime. I understand. And we are glad that the fighters survived. An hour before their capture, they communicated by radio and reported that they were running out of ammunition. But every warrior must not just shoot randomly, but think over every shot, take care of every cartridge. I realize that this is also my fault, that they were not sufficiently prepared for such a situation and did not fully understand that a fighter should plan his ammunition load. But now the guys have a chance to prove to themselves, their comrades, the commander and the whole country that this was a forced step. What an oath, duty and honor above all!

    Military Summery mentioned a rumor going around that the Ukraine general staff believes Russia is using a climate weapon. Because they have never seen this much rain consistently in this area, ever.

    I guess Russia could be cloud seeding. China has masted this technology. They use small rockets about the size of an S-5 missile and drones. I am a bit skeptical though. It has been a wet spring everywhere. But you never know.
