    Everything is NATO supplied, and as you can see - brand new. Those are deliveries straight from the production lines, meaning that stocks are also depleted.
    RPG-75M is Czech.

    And another good one Laughing

    Guy was sended with a squad to dig the trenches. As soon as they started, two soldiers approached asking "who are you?".
    I am a soldier.
    Yes, but you are Ukrainian, and we are Russian. Want to go POW?
    Sure I do!

    They have been sent to "fortify" 50m from the Russian defensive positions full of soldiers Laughing Laughing Laughing

    According to a junior Minister to Der Speigel. May or may not be correct.

    Whilst they might become shop soiled aren't most munitions "brand new" until used? Very Happy Those NATO munitions are dated 2021 so not strictly straight from production. Cool

    Germany sent Taurus missiles to Ukraine.

    Not sure about that but France has sent their version of Storm Shadow.

    Regarding what the Russian forces should do... I would say keep the pressure on and if they see an opportunity to advance without heavy losses then take the chance and keep pressure on the Orcs... if they start pushing them back then Kiev is more likely to relent and start honest talks.

    With Kiev making stupid demands I think Putin should reciprocate and demand all sorts of silly things like US forces leave Europe and Russian borders be restored that include Finland and the Baltic states and much of what is now Poland etc etc because negotiations is about give and take so you have to be demanding stuff you can give up for the essentials you really want. Otherwise if you just ask for the bare minimum then you can't give anything up and your negotiation sounds like demands.

    They could also demand Zelensky and his party resign and are tried for their war crimes... just generally match Kievs current demands of Russia and then they have things they can negotiate backwards from... but at the end of the day Russia is going to win this on the battlefield... ironically like HATO was saying that Kiev had to win it on the battlefield too...

    On the evening of August 7, Russian forces launched new wave of missile strikes on the Ukrainian military throughout the country.
    As a result of the missile strike in the city of Pokrovsk, the Druzhba Hotel and the restaurant Karleone located in the same building were destroyed. The local sources confirm that the headquarters of the Ukrainian military command was located in the hotel, while foreign mercenaries were often gathering in the restaurant.
    According to the local reports, two missiles struck the building. The second missile strike reportedly took place after Ukrainian security forces arrived to the spot. These reports confirm the high accuracy of the Russian strikes.
    The city of Pokrovsk is located near the frontlines where heavy battles are ongoing. It is unlikely that a lot of brave civilian tourists stayed there during the attack.
    From South Park... (checks his notes) South Front.  Very Happy

    Omsktransmash has finished the modernization of a batch of T-80BVM tanks, which are now on their way to Ukraine.

    This marks the second batch of tanks in less than 30 days. The previous batch consisted of T90M tanks.

    The pokrovsk strikes are perfect example of what I mean

    Hitting Ukraine like this will save Russian servicemen from hard fighting moving forward

    There should be strikes on all frontline Ukrainian infrastructure

    Civilian deaths are a byproduct of war, it is tragic but Russian lives are worth more than any Ukrainian

    Yes those tanks. The video you have shared is of the second batch.

    Though personally I would have preferred more T-90s to be sent rather than T-80BVM. The T-89BVM as such doesn't bring any major technological benefit, just the number that counts.

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #47 Scree152

    Pokrovsk is smoking rubble

    @flamingpython @higurashihougi

    Striking civilian infrastructure is necessary to save Russian lives

    Only Ukro lovers are against it -

    Save Russians, kill Ukrainians

    BTW pokrovsk distance is only 67KM from Donetsk

    Which means Iskander was unnecessary to excavate Ukrainian scum

    Why use an expensive missile for these missions? A 300mm guided round could easily eviscerate hotels with basements, hospitals, and apartment blocks

    You can use a variety of weapons to erase buildings at this distance from the front line

    Tornado, or even Smerch would be preferable, but so far guided missiles of 300mm are not utilized by Russia yet

    Such rockets are a game changer because the strikes I am talking about can be effected from MLRS across the front line, and if used en masse the entire front can be cleansed of command posts, mercenaries, and insurgents

    That means the Russian army can conduct an offensive without worrying about major concentrations, only cleansing pockets of Ukro resistance as they advance near destroyed urban sites

    300mm rounds, Izd-721, and Sirius with 500kg bombs could all conduct this sort of mission

    Dr.Snufflebug wrote:The only reason Federation and Republican forces should take any territory now is for more advantageous positions on the front for grinding whatever Banderastan throws at them down. Aside from that, territory for territory's sake is pointless.

    BTW, I think disillusion is growing in UA ranks. Just a hunch.

    Taking territory all the way to Odessa serves a very important purpose. Not Only does it landlock Ukraine which should help improve safety in the Black Sea and the loss of a major transport hub for Ukrainian economy, but this would link up with Transnistria and Gaguhzia both pro Russian and have been waiting decades for this opportunity. But this gives Russia a further card to play. If NATO continue or try to plan further dirty tactics Russia can play the Moldova uprising card. Moldova is in a very weak position it's military is nothing more than a poorly equipped defence force with no real air force it would be an easy target and there is still support for Russia there although not a majority it still helps. And by that time Europe won't have any equipment left to send to Moldova if they tried that card. Even if Russia has no real interest in taking Moldova the threat alone would be enough for Europe to crap it's pants and another failure on NATO hands.

    Although I do agree the western and central/western regions would serve no purpose either economically, politically or strategic. It will be filled with brainwashed anti Russian morons.

    ⚡The most powerful air defense system in the world has been created around Kyiv. It consists, in particular, of the Patriot, Nasams and IRIS-T air defense systems, - The Times with reference to the Colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

    However, according to the Ukrainian military, ammunition to protect against rocket attacks is almost over.

    “You cannot plan a mess with the annual production of 150-160 Patriot missiles. We used them for a month... If we wait until autumn, until mid-October, they will hit the energy infrastructure again. It is certain. This winter will be even harder than the previous one,” he predicts.


    Meanwhile Laughing

    Ukrainian channel Rezident:

    Corruption in the Ministry of Defense has become total, and the schemes relate to the purchase and repair of equipment. While the Ukrainians are giving the last to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, our officials continue to create corruption schemes worth billions, and this is not eggs for 17 hryvnias.

    When the purchase of weapons is declassified, everyone will be shocked, shells were bought ten times more expensive than their market price, and parts for old equipment 20 times! Svinarchuks will seem like children against the background of these schemes, but they attributed everything to the war.

    To advance in any direction, especially Odessa,

    More strikes are needed on frontline infrastructure

    Up to 50km to 100km behind the front line

    Raze all buildings where they hide,

    These buildings are everywhere, Kramatorsk Pizzeria, Pokrovsk Hotel

    The Ukrainian lovers don't want to hit them , but we know these exist all over the place

    Only time they are hit is when Windows in Moscow get blown up, or the bridge gets knocked down a 3rd or 4th time

    It's a stupid approach, just hit it all indiscriminately and deprive them of storages, garrisons, and staging areas

    Contrary to Pro Ukrainian propaganda, barely any civilians live there,

    Even if they did, why are they more important than Russians?

    That's why Wagner went on a convoy, because Moscow only does something when they need window repair
