I don't think either side took out the dam, I heard the real suspected cause was mines that got washed down the stream from both sides trying to cover banks and enough of them just gathered and caused the collapse and that does make sense.
The orcs controlled the water level at the dam that failed and they kept it over full on purpose... whether they actually blew up the dam or the old neglected dam failed, either way the flooding is on them because they controlled the water levels.
Plus the hydro lake where the dam is located would not have mines in the water flow right down to the dam face where they could do damage to the dam, the water would flow down the river but when it reached the lake that is where the dam is located the mines would be deposited at the far end of the lake where the river water stops flowing and the lake begins.
as i feared about the first part it's propaganda saying there are still fighting with no evidence and as i pointed out the 2nd part was utter nonsensical
It is their style though... can't win a victory on the battlefield... win it on western media... or twitter...
Those 2 tractors made russians spend 2 atgm.
Those tractors are probably worth more than any of the Leopards they might get... and they will be foreign tractors so blow them up and when the war is over they can buy good solid soviet tractors from Belarus.
The reason why Ukraine is able to continuously do these things (blow up the dam, shell Russian cities) is because Russia is not responding with the force it is capable of. In my books these acts are on Putin. He has been too soft from the start.
He invaded the country and has killed a significant portion of their young men and destroyed their entire existing supply of weapons and ammo and bankrupted the country that now survives directly on handouts from HATO countries... what else do you expect him to do that would be effective?
It he was more brutal that would play into western propaganda hands and would be a chance for Kiev to say they were the nice guys in comparison.
Russia can't speed up the conflict by being totally ruthless like the US that would starve and freeze the civilian population by now... that would win the conflict but as we have seen in all of the conflicts they have been involved recently it will lose them the peace... which is worth more in the end.
Funny all the people in the west complaining Putin is not enough like Stalin when it comes to brutality in war...
Thinking the Ukronazis will sue for peace due to high losses or that the anglo nazis will be deterred to further escalation if Russia keeps the gloves on is pure delusion. The exact opposite has been happening and will continue to happen.
There is no negotiating peace with the current nazis in Kiev, but whoever is in charge then will have to talk peace when support from the west collapses or fades away... in the mean time slapping back Orc attacks and grinding up the new super forces they have worked so hard to put together fills the time.
It would be better for Russia if they get time to take rather more of the south of Ukraine so peace talks can be talked about but as Russia has learned from the west... talk of peace talks can fill in time while Russia achieves its goals in the country... the suffering of Ukraine can be ignored the way the suffering of the Donbass and Lugansk was ignored by Kiev and the west.
Russia knows Kiev does not care about peace or how many of their soldiers die on the front line but there is always a chance a few of those trained soldiers might choose a different fate and either change sides or perhaps even just have a real coup and get rid of the foreign controlled puppets in their own country destroying that country and then perhaps they can talk on real terms about their own future and the future of what is left of their country.
Ukraine will sue for peace only when Western dorks are unwilling to foot the bill anymore, and this moment is coming sooner than later.
Even Biden might change his tune if he realises his chances of a second term are reduced by this conflict continuing, so he might cut the funding and support before the next election in a bid to hold on to power.
Other elections are taking place too around the EU...
