    Up to 70 Ukrainian militants, tanks, pickup trucks and armored vehicles took part in the attack on Shebekino in the Belgorod region. This was reported in the Russian Ministry of Defense, where they presented the chronology of the offensive of the nationalists.

    In total, up to 70 militants, five tanks, four armored combat vehicles, seven pickup trucks and one KamAZ took part in the attack,” the defense ministry said.

    Terrorists of the Zelensky regime have made several attempts to invade Russian territory. From 4:00 to 10:00 in the morning, servicemen of the "Western" grouping of troops inflicted a series of powerful blows on the enemy from cannon artillery, multiple launch rocket systems, and heavy mortars. The Russian Aerospace Forces "worked out" the retreating militants and their reserves.

    It is reported that more than 50 militants were killed in the border area from Ukraine. The enemy suffered heavy losses in manpower and equipment. ■

    The Belgorod Region is sending another group of 100 people to one of the bases of the Ministry of Defense, where the volunteers will undergo the necessary training. The training will take place both on the territory of the region and other regions. Gladkov did not give other details of the preparation.

    Today we had a meeting with the commander of the regiment and the commanders of the Belgorod self-defense battalions. We discussed proposals for the continuation of military rallying on the basis of military units of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation (...) Another group of 100 people will go there in the near future

    - the governor wrote in his TG channel.

    To date, seven territorial defense battalions have been created in the region, the total number of volunteers has already exceeded 3 thousand people. The units are located along the border, the authorities of the region provide the fighters with everything they need, except for weapons , and there is a need for this, this was proved by the events of May 22 in the Grayvoron region. Now the authorities are looking for ways to solve this problem, because according to the law, it is forbidden to issue weapons to self-defense units.

    (...) volunteers are provided with summer, autumn, winter uniforms, helmets and body armor, as well as additional equipment, including copters, walkie-talkies, binoculars, metal detectors, first-echelon first-aid kits

    Just give them weapons no big deal surely there is a law that states they can be armed when hostilities occur in the region it's not as if Russia doesn't have 100,000s+ AK-47/AKM, SKS, RPK, PKM, DshK, NSV, KPV, RPGs and other small arms and mortars laying around. The best solution is artillery strikes over the border Into Ukraine targeting any troops and equipment that can be located by drones. And proper obstacles and channelling enemy troops movements into kill zones, The attacks will be stopped before they even happen. I doubt Ukraine is sending it's best equipment or best troops into these attacks most likely a few regular officers accompanied by mobilization troops at most, and just getting wasted this serves no military purpose other than to try and irritate Russia.

    Openly speaking, I still wonder what is the stuff that folks who call about arming civilian population are smoking.

    Creating a Volksstuhrm is a sign of nothing else than defeat.

    But of course that Russia has not a single reason to do so. They have supportive structures to deal with the task, and only by carefully watching the latest intrusions we can find out that they are always warmly welcomed.
    Starting from the first one back in Spring, we could hear a massive gunfire just in a background of fukin tiktoks they have recorded.
    Power structures were at their tails minutes after they have crossed the border, and "occupied" a few houses 100m inside Russian territory.
    A HUNDRED meter.
    The one in Belgorod direction, Russkie just allowed them to enter, I guess to maximize the kill ratio knowing with whom they are dealing with. They have teleported to Bandera almost all of them.
    The latest case, they didn't even make it to the border. Artillery ripped their arses wide open.
    Heavy armored units are arriving on the scene as we speak, as it seems to be the most serious try - with a strength of almost more than a mechanized platoon.

    It is again nothing more than panic mongers and multiple trolls activated to carry a regular psyops.

    The last time when this kind of intrusion hit armed civilians, was Beslan. Federal bodies had the same issues with handling hundreds of armed fathers, brothers and grandpas as with the terrorists itself. It took a while to manage the situation, and establish a functioning safety belt around the school. It wasn't easy to push back armed family members, who could do more damage than expected.

    These Russian women prison officers for POW must be hard as nails ! I bet they shave their Beards in the morning . Have you ever been kissed by a woman with a Beard ? Well , I have ! I was a child , and an elderly relative " grandma , " with a heavy stubble , gave me a smacker on my cheek ! It hurt like Hell ! Bloody sand - paper ! So horrible , I still remember it to this day . Why do men have Beards , and women none ? LOL .

    Yes agree in forming militia in border region , by arming civilians . Not a sign of defeat at all , but being clever . The weaker force relies on hit and run , since it can not win classic battle . No sense dispersing regular troops . Keep concentration on LDPR .

    You cant compare Russia of today to anything that was happening in 90's or early 2000's.

    They are already resettling families out of the region. What is that a sign of ?

    Ukraine is probably going to keep doing it.

    To BACKMAN

    And how long will Ukroshitstan be able to do that ?
    * The most important thing for Russia is to protect the military industrial complex. The loss at Saki Airport is not small, but it is replaceable. This gives us the FACT that Russia is a weapons manufacturer.
    * The depopulation of Ukroshitstan, to my joy and to the sorrow of that fag MR HD (i can't stand that ****) who loves the Nazis, has reached COLOSSAL proportions. Therefore, it is more and more about WHETHER Russia will carry out an offensive or not - the move of Ukroshitstan is less important.

    * Russia did NOT declare a state of war against Ukroshitstan and Russia did NOT open a "hunting season" for the Nazi regime in Kiev (which that faggot from the forum called MR HD really likes), and there is a reason for that - and that is that if Russia declares a state of war, Bolshevik - the Nazi West then has only two options, and that is to smoke the big Russian cock again (which is a centuries-old TRADITION) or to join WW3..

    Can Russia raze any city in Ukroshitstan to the ground? There is no dispute about that. Can Russia start hunting the regime in Ukroshitstan? No doubt about it, but I SEE that no one is asking that question here.

    Mercuris has mentioned twice the Mig-25 RB ruminating that it would be such an ideal plane for the current tactical scenario. Do they have any in storage? Is there a remote chance in Hades they may refurb a few. They had a 5T bombload. If they dropped a bomb at 3000 kph at 23km altitude I wonder how far it would go without wings.

    Well if that is what you want the MiG-31RB could carry 6 bombs of 1.5 tons each, so a total weight of 9 tons, but they weren't just any bombs, they were specially designed to operate at high mach speed and not have their fuses go off early or fail because of intense heating from flying so fast.

    The original MiG-25RB was OK in terms of accuracy and could not be considered precision strike capable, but with glide kits with guidance to hit specific ground coordinates then the accuracy could actually be very very good... assuming they would survive release and operation at mach 2 plus speeds at altitude.

    The problem with all these extra people patrolling the border areas and of course everyone wanting to use drones to make it easier is that there will be a lot more people on the border area that might or might not be locals and friendly and of course a sudden increase in small drones could be local or could be enemy... how could anyone tell?

    I would say this would require medium sized HALE and MALE type larger drones and use the local territorial forces just to act more like police than soldiers to find problems which the local military can then deal with any actual incursions.

    Honestly with the attrition rate these Orcs have been sustaining on their terror attacks, I rather doubt they will keep doing it for a long sustained period and if they try then they are going to lose a lot of men in the process.

    This is a distraction... I think we got Duke Nukem 3 faster than Ukrainian counter offensive...

    Yes, Russia does not recognize itself 20 years back.
    That is why it does not need an armed Volsstuhrm to defend its borders.
    FFS, Russia is a country that has double the number of power structures compared to the others, maybe aside Murica.
    There is specialized border guards, border troops, MVD, Rosgvardia, some volunteer battalions of Kossaks or other that are organized and armed, and finally, you have regular army units on top of that.
    Where there is a niche for armed civilians, that are roughly trained and disorganized is beyond me, because every single person who wants to participate, can enlist for Kozaks or something.
    Arming civilians is an act of desperate, and will always backfire.

    Going mach 2 or more with 9 tons of bombs isn't easy even for the mig-25.

    It would beed in flight refueling to go back to the base.

    “According to the Ministry of Defense, from January 1 to May 31 [2023], more than 134,000 people were recruited into the [ RF ] Armed Forces,” Medvedev said.

    Medvedev also called impressive the pace of increase in defense production in Russia over the past year. He compared this with the experience of the period of the Great Patriotic War.

    Earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, as part of a visit to the Prudboy combined-arms training ground in the Volgograd region , said that the leadership of Ukraine behaves like a “terrorist”, and terrorists need to be eliminated.

    Most likely, in this case we are talking about the spring conscription campaign, so this is 134 thousand conscripts.

    You would need a mecanisme to push hard the bomb in order to not let it damage your aircraft during the release but it doable.

    A booster for a 1500kg bomb would be huge. I rather go for the high speed release.

    I always thought they should have kept some 48 mig-25 and upgrade them for multirole missions. Its speed was a true advantage over the battlefield.

    Why all the interest in the MiG-25?

    It wasn't designed to carry the Kinzhal.

    It's successor, the MiG-31, was designed to carry the Kinzhal, and I assume the MiG-41, it's replacement will be too.

    Medvedev also called impressive the pace of increase in defense production in Russia over the past year. He compared this with the experience of the period of the Great Patriotic War.

    Earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev, as part of a visit to the Prudboy combined-arms training ground in the Volgograd region , said that the leadership of Ukraine behaves like a “terrorist”, and terrorists need to be eliminated.

    Most likely, in this case we are talking about the spring conscription campaign, so this is 134 thousand conscripts.

    No these would be contractors and volunteers.

    Zelensky threatened the Russian contingent in Transnistria

    "Ukraine will definitely play one of the main roles (in the fate of Transnistria), because we share border. Regarding what to do with those there, with  troops... If they want to live - they will leave" Zelensky said

    Ukraine will "help" Moldova solve the issue of Transnistria, but after the ""victory" over Russia" , - Zelensky

    “We will speak from a position of strength, from the position of a winner,”

    Bitch please!
    I have been to Chisinau. Half the population will happily go against Moldovia especially after what the Romanian agent Sandu has even fucked over her own voters, many liberals I personally know from working place.

    This will only seal the fate of Moldovia, Ukraine and just make Simpson Episode USSR Returns a selffulfiling prophecy by "Minority Report" mechanism.
