    It is a military target, if the actual goal was to hinder logistics, but we know for a fact that all targets by Ukros are for one purpose only, propaganda.
    Buchi, Sumy, Mariuopol, Kramatorsk - killing own civilians and blaming Russia.
    Strizh, Moscow drones - propaganda
    Sucide squads on Belgorod - propaganda
    Car bombs, bombs in "gifts", toxins and other means against civilians - terrorism
    Diversion, remote controlled detonation in military objects - mostly for propaganda, but legal target.

    This is not a conventional war to see who wins.
    The Ukros have made a fucking movie during war time far away from the frontline just like Georgia did with the movie 08 / 08 / 08.
    They lie about Genocide, which is not happening and everybody knows it.
    The Ukropians are lying in daily life to each other and believe each other.
    They send stupidly people into meat grinder just because the West demands them to do it! They invested in more deaths, no matter who's side they are on.

    Arestovich was right, the entire national construct of Ukraine is to lie all the time and soon as they stop the house of cards will fall.

    Thank you for once and for all proving that you are an uneducated fool.
    St. Luisitania? Does not ring a bell?
    It's illegal period.
    Geneva convention Appendix F Article 51, 49 and 23 let alone the very fact that a country which has the universal law "law of the strongest" that you will have to face once they whoop your ass for all the inhumane acts, crimes and ways your proxy bimbos have fought.

    Now, you turn to proof where and which Geneva Convention the Russians have ignored and created a double standard!
    But I know you will not be able nor even attempt to find anything, since you have never stood up to your own words. Empire of Lies is quite fitting for the subjects of Dolos!

    Really? That's why you Nazi exceptionalist Americans claimed it was a "necessity" to drop two nukes on a civilian target? Intentions don't matter?
    Intentions matter even in front of court, but If you like we can play these game too.
    If you haven't figured out by now, Russia is copying some of your strategies 1:1. It might be soon you who is crying that your Muricans are dying and US is "uninvolved" in all of this.

    The more Nazis die, the better. But you coward amongst the Nazis, who has never served in military and most probably will never be anywhere outside your own room and fight like ЦИПСО agents do on the internet.

    So Russia has been openly using cluster bomb munitions against civilians for a year and so the US has refused to deploy their own cluster bomb munitions till now because?

    I would think if there was any evidence at all that Russia was using such weapons that the US would send them first just to get rid of ammo they can't otherwise use... it would save them having to spend money destroying the rounds... before sending normal rounds...

    The bridge is fair game, Ukraine actually attacked at night during the lowest traffic hours, so it could have been worse

    The US embassy in Kiev is not an embassy and is also fair game I would say... not just fair game but legitimate target as a driving factor in this conflict.

    So long as any neutral flags are taken down before an attack is made/weapons fired, it is legal to use ships disguised as civilian vessels.

    That is war, this is terrorism... or were the 11/9 attacks perfectly legitimate?

    First of all, I don't get your denial strategy at all.
    Cluster ammunition is just one of the tools of war.
    Effective in some cases, and ineffective in others.

    Well, mostly it is the Russian threat to start using cluster munitions themselves if the US follows through on delivering cluster munitions to Kievs forces kinda suggests that to me.

    Russia never signed an agreement restricting it's use.

    Yeah, the US tried for decades to murder Saddam and other leaders of countries and were unsuccessful... are you saying Putin has been trying to kill Zelensky because if he was American he would?

    The point is, that western shitsream labeled the "cluster ammunition" as some sort of horrible thing that only barbarians can use - second only to the barrel bombs.

    The point is that if the Russians were using them then the Americans would simply say that when defending their use... they could say they are barbaric and evil but they are using them so our nazis have to use them too or they will be at a disadvantage.

    Equally if Russia was already using them why would they threaten to start using them in response to them being deployed to Kievs forces?

    Well there you go, as long as they put up the Ukrainian navy ensign before they launched the drones (miles away and in the dark) all good lol.

    Important news for Russia... they can fill a ship with thousands of tons of HE and then sail it into an EU port and as long as they put up the correct ensign they can murder as many people as they like because it is OK under international law...

    So Russia hit bunch of targets in retaliation for the bridge attack. Including a 70K ton oil storage depot. If I was Putin, my first question would be. WHY THE F DID WE ALLOW THEM TO STORE SO MUCH FUEL? !!!

    Was it fuel or was it oil? They are not the same thing... you can't just pour heating oil into a Leopard tank and expect it to move anywhere...

    What you do is you watch and listen and as long as they keep delivering more fuel to the depot you don't do anything. When they start sending lots of trucks to distribute the fuel... that is when you hit it hard.

    So Russia - and 404 - has been using cluster ammo for the entire time of conflict, and yes, civilians were victims of that either.
    Nobody gave a shit.
    And yes, 404 has been using NATO provided cluster ammo for a while, too. Both for German MARS MLRS and 155 mm cal. SMArt is nothing else other than cluster ammunition, only anti-tank. Quite the same as Russkie cluster ammo with MOTIV submunition, or already mentioned self targeting subammo delivered by Smerch or Tornado.
    I have not a single idea why the whole issue submerged in the shitstream for any other reason than propaganda - someone tried to hype next Wunderwaffe which backfired.

    1. "St. Luisitania? Does not ring a bell?"

    Thank you for sharing you DO not know a DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM thing about history and are a clueless imbecile that knows nothing of what he speaks.

    A. Lusitania was carrying munitions (Divers literally found it in the wreck) WHICH going by the rules of engagement used by BOTH navies during that time made her A VALID MILITARY TARGET. The Germans were not in the wrong for sinking her, infact the Germans in that instance where the victims of British Propaganda, as they repeatedly warned Britain if they keep doing this, they will sink the ships. The Germans didn't do it out of the blue they warned for months and eventually told the brits "**** around and find out" Well the brits found out

    It was actually The brits who committed the warcrime by using Civilians as human shields knowing the Germans would sink any ship carrying war material as they where in their right to do. Infact many historians believe the brits purposefully did this etc sent the ship that way and not providing escort despite knowing Uboats where around to drag the US into WW1.

    2. As for articles that the Russians ignore well It is prohibited to move civilians to the territory of the occupying state. Russia also has revoked Geneva Convention protocols, your clearly a moron who fails to do even the most BASIC of research next time educate yourself before attempting to waste my time kid.

    There were already attempts by Russians to start petition and the offer to crowdfund Iskanders for the whole purpose to target the oligarchs of Ukraine. The issue is that was ignored entirely, however I personally would start a Kickstarter crowdfund and use it as propaganda on top of killing our Khazarian enemies.

    So far, at least from what I remember, only one Oligarch gone (miss)ile. Would be really interested into knowing why they do not target all the Oligarchs, their administration, NGOs and on top of that all Banks and all banking relevant systems should be next priority. That should make billions worth trouble for all the oligarchs and their money washing machine. On top of that, track the routes to Poland and Moldova, where most are transporting kids, organs and actually why not nuke Little St. James Island. Should be a high priority target anyway, just make sure all the Pedos collect their at the same time. The American people would even thank Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin for that.

    That is the point. It was you who was arguing there is no "convention" of military disguising as civilians. St. Luisitania was a scheme to be attacked on purpose to enter the war, which was only possible if the stupid Murican was fueled with hatred first. That is the whole point of this Deception. You are ignoring that again - the INTEND matters!

    Moving civilians to occupying state? WHAT?
    No such thing is happening. What nonsense have you snuffed up from propaganda?

An example of this was a German merchant raider (forget the name), that sank the HMAS Sydney during WW2. It had a neutral flag up until just before firing when the German ensign went up.

    Dude your stupid.....I said its A gray area and it depends what convention the host nation adheres to, I also said IF you are using Civilians as meat shields then yes it is a war crime but just using a civilian ship doesn't constitute a war crime according to Russia owns laws and the laws of many other nations and when you pick and choose what parts of a convention you wish to follow, then you cannot sit there and use that convention as an excuse.

    You got corrected and are now trying to back peddle by twisting my words.

    The Lusitania was also a much different situation then the bridge. its was frankly dumb as **** to try and use that as a comparison.

    Also as I said, its a theory and while part of me could believe it, there is no evidence that was the case.

    Reverse engineering in action: Russia discovers the weak point of the Himars, 07.18.2023.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin indicated that the country would not rule out the reverse engineering of sophisticated Western military equipment captured by the Russian armed Forces in Ukraine. According to the retired state military intelligence officer Anatoly Matviichuk, Russia has already achieved quite a few successes in this sphere.

    "The enemy also produces modern equipments. And if there is an opportunity to look inside and see if there is something we can use, then why not?", Putin stated in an interview on July 16.

    The US and its allies have allocated more than $94.5 billion in military equipment to Ukraine in the last 18 months, emptying their own arsenals to send everything from the latest modifications of Leopard 2 tanks and Bradley armored vehicles to Himars multiple rocket launcher systems, Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles, Patriot and Nasams anti-aircraft defense systems, as well as Caesar howitzers.

    As the conflict progressed, the Russian Armed Forces managed to capture several of these teams. As a result, reams of images appeared on the internet showing Russian servicemen showing off near Leopard and Bradley trophies or studying the use of the seized Javelin and Stinger anti-tank missile systems.

    Earlier this month, Russian soldiers seized a virtually intact Storm Shadow missile, disassembled it and took it in a truck to a rear area for further analysis.

    "Any trophy equipment that we capture on the battlefield is valuable in terms of its design features, certain design solutions for some of its components," the retired colonel, whose military record includes service in the Soviet Group in Germany, Afghanistan and Syria, told Sputnik.

    "For example, the Leopard tank, which we are interested in the components of its armor and the fire control system of its cannon. The Bradley armored vehicle is also of interest to us because of the projectiles used by its 25 mm cannon," Matviichuk stated.

    "All the equipment we capture is carefully studied by our military engineers. We compare it with our own teams and immediately formulate methodological recommendations on the means of combating these teams on the battlefield. And, in the future, it is possible that some elements may even be introduced into our own equipment," the military expert deepened.

    Successes of reverse engineering

    Matviichuk claims that there is a lot of evidence showing that the Russian Armed Forces already take advantage of the analysis of captured NATO equipment, especially in the field of missiles.

    The Himars we have captured before were able to bypass our Pantsir air defense systems quite well. Not now. We have found their weak point, we have discovered the frequencies of their control system, and now our air defense systems destroy them excellently," the analyst reported.

    "As for the Storm Shadow missiles that we have captured, we also see now in the reports of the Ministry of Defense that almost 90% of these missiles are shot down by our anti-aircraft defense systems," Matviichuk continued.

    The Russian air defense forces confirmed in January that the Pantsir system platforms have been equipped with a new thermal imaging camera and a software update to dramatically increase the rocket interception rate of the Himars.

    Recently, a senior executive of the Russian tech giant Rostec claimed that the effectiveness of improved Pantsir missile and cannon systems has in some cases reached "100%" effectiveness against Himars projectiles on the battlefield.

    "Any weapon is modernized and improved depending on the results of its use in combat. This is an ongoing process. For example, after the enemy received Himars multiple rocket launcher systems, specialists from Visokotochnie Kompleksi [High-Precision Systems, one of the largest Russian military manufacturers] upgraded the Pantsir to intercept these projectiles," the expert reported.

    "Today we see examples of Himars attacks successfully countered by our anti-aircraft missile and cannon system. There are precedents when all 12 rockets launched from an American multiple rocket launcher system were intercepted," Matviichuk stated.

    Now, the question is to get enough improved anti-aircraft defense systems for the 1,000 km front line, given the tendency of the Ukrainian forces to use their Western-provided equipment to deliberately attack civilian areas at the same time, especially in the Donbass.

    🔥🇷🇺🇺🇦 Last night, the Russian Armed Forces worked very hard on the port infrastructure of Nikolaev. The NASA FIRMS thermal anomaly monitoring resource records severe fires in the port area as a result of night strikes.

    Kiko wrote:"The enemy also produces modern equipments. And if there is an opportunity to look inside and see if there is something we can use, then why not?", Putin stated in an interview on July 16.

    The US and its allies have allocated more than $94.5 billion in military equipment to Ukraine in the last 18 months, emptying their own arsenals to send everything from the latest modifications of Leopard 2 tanks and Bradley armored vehicles to Himars multiple rocket launcher systems, Storm Shadow long-range cruise missiles, Patriot and Nasams anti-aircraft defense systems, as well as Caesar howitzers.
    NASAMS is basically a ground launcher for air to air missiles. There is a high probability that Russia will be able to capture AIM-9X Sidewinder, AIM-120 AMRAAM, and IRIS-T missiles of relatively modern type. Thus sabotaging Western air power by being better able to devise counter measures for these missiles.

    Kiko wrote:"For example, the Leopard tank, which we are interested in the components of its armor and the fire control system of its cannon. The Bradley armored vehicle is also of interest to us because of the projectiles used by its 25 mm cannon," Matviichuk stated.
    I doubt the US sent the most modern cannon projectiles. If they did, it is a major haul, since that cannon is still in main use by the US in their IFVs. Knowledge of its characteristics will enable the creation of improved armor protection for Russian IFVs.

    Seems like VDV and 1st GTA are now pushing across the front , moving to Oskol is the general objective, and there is success across the line

    In general the Russian army now has more troops in this sector than AFU, and it seems this is the case across the front now as well

    The horror of Ukrainian servicemen: new details of the new Russian kamikaze drone Lancet-3 revealed, 07.18.2023.

    With the start of the special military operation in Ukraine, Lancet kamikaze drones have become a sensational weapon, the effectiveness of which has been highlighted even in the Western media. Currently, Russia is finalizing the development of a new model of this range of drones that will respond to all the demands of Moderna war.

    Recently, the head of the ZALA company, Alexander Zakharov, revealed the details of the new model of the terrifying enemy drone, the Izdelie-53 or Lancet-3, which meets the requirements of the network-focused warfare concept.

    Network-centric warfare is a concept that involves the high level of automation of attacks against enemy targets by bringing together the forces of different branches of the military. Thus, the Lancet-3 has the ability to attack a group of targets practically autonomously. A swarm of drones is grouped into a single platoon, in which if one of them locates a target, it is known to the rest of the group.

    Then, each of the Lancets in the group selects a target that fits the characteristics of their combat payload and attacks it. In this scheme, a serviceman is limited only to designate the area of operations and the target that the individual drone should look for, for example, an enemy armored vehicle or radar. In addition, the program of each one includes a kind of hierarchy of objectives to be destroyed. For example, enemy anti-aircraft defense systems and radar stations would have a higher priority over armoured transport.

    Zakharov noted that such a tactic has already been tested in battle conditions with the use of previous models of marauding ammunition. It is noted that the Lancets are almost immune to electronic warfare equipment and can only be attempted to bring them down by physical means. Other characteristics of the Izdeliie-53 remain classified for the time being.

    Also, instead of the traditional catapult used to launch individual units, Russian designers have developed a launcher for four suicide drones that can take flight simultaneously. In addition, a custom-made launch container for a single drone was created. Due to the new launch system, the Lancet 3 has flapping wings.

    The production of kamikaze Lancet drones consists of coating a carbon fabric with a special resin, which is then placed in a sealed matrix and baked in an oven at 60°C. Finally, the fuselage and wings are assembled using the cascade manufacturing method.

    About 400 registered cases of the successful use of Lancet circulate in open sources alone. Given the considerable results, the military manufacturer, ZALA Aero Group, has increased the production of the Lancet up to 50 times, which will allow the Russian Armed Forces to reach an immense number of objectives on the battlefield.

    Presented for the first time at the Army military exhibition in 2019, two types of this carrier munition have been known so far, the Izdelie-52 or 'small' Lancet with two X-shaped wings and Izdelie-51 or 'large' Lancet, equipped with a large X-shaped wing. It was precisely the 'small' Lancet that hit the first Leopard 2 tanks during the Ukrainian counteroffensive. Thanks to its cumulative charge, this weapon is able to penetrate the thickest armour.
