    Military operation in Ukraine
    Putin: the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine indicate that the West intends to fight with the Russian Federation to the last Ukrainian

    "I understand that this is preliminary data, because everything on the battlefield cannot be seen to the end, but in general it is clear. From this we can conclude that equipment, of course, can be supplied additionally, but the mobilization reserve is not unlimited," - Putin said, commenting on the data on the losses of Ukrainian troops in equipment and personnel announced by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev.

    "It looks like Ukraine's Western allies really decided to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian," the president stressed.

    During the meeting, Putin listened to Shoigu's report on Ukrainian losses, and then compared these data with those received by Patrushev through other channels. "Nikolai Platonovich, I asked you to maintain relations with colleagues from various departments so that we have an objective picture of what is happening," he explained, asking to tell about "how it looks from the side of various departments that accept participation in a special military operation. "It is clear that the main responsibility lies with the Ministry of Defense, but nevertheless, information is being accumulated in other departments," he added.

    According to the Ministry of Defense and the Security Council, the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in personnel exceeded 13 thousand people. Putin also asked how the Ministry of Defense assesses the prospects for new Western deliveries of equipment.

    Based on the results of the speeches, the president emphasized that the reserves of the Ukrainian army were not exhausted, so Russian commanders should proceed from realities when building combat work. "We must proceed from the fact that the enemy's offensive potential has not been exhausted, a number of strategic reserves have not yet been used, and I ask you to keep this in mind when organizing combat work. You need to proceed from the realities," Putin concluded.

    Another one burned...
    11:34 A NATO Oshkosh M977 HEMTT military petrol truck caught fire on the Riga-Moscow highway in Latvia's Salaspils.

    Trucks carrying fuel for the AFU and NATO equipment in Lithuania and Latvia are burned by guerrillas. Special services of these countries are actively looking for arsonists,but all in vain!

    The commander of a volunteer brigade with the call sign Patriot, who signed a contract with the Russian Defense Ministry, said it was a great honor. This is reported by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

    “There is no higher honor than the uniform of a Russian soldier and officer,” he stressed.

    The patriot stressed that the whole point of the volunteer movement is to bring as much benefit to your country as possible, and he is pleased when Russia appreciates these efforts.

    Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry reported that more than 20 volunteer detachments signed contracts with the Russian Defense Ministry.

    NOTE: sometimes had to read though the jargon and translations however my read of the plus five regiments of the 20th tank army is that the 5 divisions (2nd,3rd,4th,47th and 144th) of the 20th Combined Arms Army and the 1st Tank Army, which were all 3-regiment divisions, are each getting their 4th regiment.

    By the end of June, a reserve army will be formed in the armed forces, in the near future - an army corps, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said . He is quoted by TASS .

    “We are forming reserves as part of the army corps, the army, plus five regiments of the 20th tank army. Everything is going according to plan. In fact, by the end of June, we will complete the formation of the reserve army," the minister specified.

    According to Shoigu, more than 1,300 people sign a contract with the Ministry of Defense in a day, that is, a whole regiment is being formed.

    “1,336 people, on average, enter the service under a contract in the RF Armed Forces per day, in fact, we receive a regiment every day,” Shoigu said.

    In addition, Shoigu noted the highest motivation among volunteers.

    “At the volunteers, I know that you paid attention ... I want to note their highest motivation,” the minister shared.

    Earlier, Shoigu said that the amount of weapons supplied by Western countries to Ukraine in 2023 would not significantly affect the hostilities.

    French writing on missile that hit Chongar Bridge in Crimea ? Himars hit previously on Bridges made round hole . This hole is oblong , consistent with cruise missile . What direction did cruise travel along ? North - South or South- North ? Direction important , as South-North would indicate missile travel from South or the  Sea direction . Missile unlikely to do 180 deg turn just before hitting Bridge . Was there any aircraft detected flying over Ukrs ? Answers are important , because this scenario fits in with naval version of French origin of scalp - Storm shadow submarine launch from Black Sea . If so then , story of weapon fired from Ukrs by Ukrs personnel , does not carry . Weapon fired from French soil by probably ( although this detail no longer relevant ) French personnel navy . So Turkiye allowed Sub through . Does anyone have idea of direction of flight of cruise ? Can be obtained against map compass , direction given by the big hole and debris , being front of cruise missile , little hole and no debris , being Tail . Why would British give missile with French writing ? May need attack against culprit country .

    History shows that the losing side is the one that blows up bridges.

    Storm shadow is the english name of the Scalp that is produced by MBDA which has production lines in France and UK.

    It's just a storm shadow that was produced with french supplied parts.

    Ukrainian army attack convoy was destroyed by FPV drones. One of the vehicles was a US AN/TWQ-1 Avenger SAM air defense system. You can see one of its Stinger missiles firing off randomly as it burns.

    Shoigu hinted at the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces, starting in July, by Lyubov Stepushova for Military Pravda. 06.22.2023.

    Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu veiledly announced an offensive in the NVO in Ukraine at a meeting of the Russian Security Council on Thursday.

    The reserve army and corps are formed and ready to "react"

    Opening the meeting, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that since the beginning of the year, 114,000 contract servicemen and 52,000 volunteers have been recruited in the Russian Federation. On average, 1336 people (regiment) and 112 units of various equipment enter the contract per day. According to him, the Ministry of Defense does not see the need for new volunteers for the SVO. Perhaps the minister made a reservation, and we are talking about mobilized, since losses and rotation are closed at the expense of contract volunteers.

    The main thing was as follows: this month "the formation of the reserve army of the Russian Federation and a new army corps with weapons of 3,700 units of various equipment is being completed."

    "The Russian side is preparing to respond to further offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," Shoigu added.

    These words, taking into account the accumulated potential, may well be interpreted as the announcement of a major Russian offensive.

    The RF Armed Forces are grinding the forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

    Further, Shoigu noted that the data on the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were obtained from radio intercepts. Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev clarified that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have lost more than 13,000 people since June 4 (approximately 17-18 battalions killed and wounded) in the course of offensive attempts. Also, the Russian military destroyed 246 tanks, including 13 Western ones, 595 armored vehicles, 443 armored fighting vehicles, 279 artillery and mortars, 2 air defense systems, 10 tactical fighters, 4 helicopters, 264 UAVs, 424 vehicles.

    Voenkor Alexander Sladkov suggests that about 5 brigades out of 9 trained and equipped according to NATO standards have already been involved in the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This means that more than half of the reserves prepared for the counterattack have already been destroyed, he writes on Telegram.


    The Supreme decided: it is useless to reason further

    Supreme Commander Vladimir Putin spoke extremely harshly at the meeting. After listening to the reports, he said that the West decided to fight to the last Ukrainian.

    “The equipment, of course, can be supplied to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but here, the mobilization reserve is impossible, and it seems that Ukraine’s Western allies really decided to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian,” Putin said.

    Nevertheless, the President "draws attention" to the fact that the enemy's offensive potential has not been exhausted and asked to take this into account in the construction of combat work.

    The German publication Bild notes that the Russian leadership began to comment on the progress of the NWO to the public. According to the publication, this means that Putin "took personal responsibility for its outcome and is confident in a positive result," since otherwise "he would hardly have appeared in front of the cameras."

    Analysts at the American Institute for the Study of War also note that the Russian Defense Ministry has learned from past communication mistakes, so Sergei Shoigu began to talk publicly about the course of the counteroffensive.

    We add that the leadership of the Russian Federation, obviously, is making the last public attempts to reason with the West that it is necessary to stop helping the Kyiv regime.

    The Security Council meeting took place after the attack on the Chongarsky bridge and after warning Shoigu that strikes on Crimea would trigger strikes on decision-making centers. Judging by Putin's tone and gestures (twisting a pencil on the table), the decision to attack has been made.

    When will the counterattack of the RF Armed Forces follow?

    The offensive will begin when the Armed Forces exhaust their reserve. Already, offensive actions of the RF Armed Forces are underway from near Kremennaya to Liman and from near Svatovo to Kupyansk. The RF Armed Forces are fixed in a forest area west of Sinkovka, 2.5 km northeast of the outskirts of Kupyansk. In the Krasnolimansky direction, Russian fighters took 2 more "oporniks" of the enemy in the fields.

    The Russian military thought worked perfectly: having seen two directions of the APU strike in the south and in Bakhmut and having restrained them, the RF Armed Forces struck where they had been in active defense for half a year and from where the APU had removed reserves. Let's see where the direction of the main blow will be. Unlike the enemy, no one in Russia is buzzing about it "on every corner."
