    But they say "300,000" are waiting somewhere

    allow me to say the truth, 50,000 KIA, and 200,000+ wounded, and you have the reality, volunteers are enough to replace the frontline troops, and to create a rotational reserve

    For Russia, cargo 200 or 300 is irrelevant, they are combat ineffective anyway and removed from the frontline

    And yes 200,000 wounded , maimed by mines, drones, shrapnel, splinter, and other wounds, they are recognizable as they are relatively young and in crutches or wheelchairs, or in blue MOD suits

    It is a defeat of a scale of Tsushima,  Russia has to wait for American political events to happen to have any hope of an agreement in Ukraine - and call it attrition war

    The west smashed Russia in Ukraine, Russia can keep destroyed donbass, Lughansk, and evacuated Crimea (the BSF has largely been moved to Novorossiysk)

    And the west will simply redirect its efforts to Armenia and Kazakhstan when the time is right

    The clock is ticking for Russia, but they bank on some kind of economic downturn, or perhaps a political scandal to save them -

    The worse part is, if by dumb luck they are saved by such events - they will manage not to be routed, but they will still be defeated

    The goals of the SMO were to remove NATO to 1997 positions, and to denazify and demilitarize Ukraine

    Fast forward, and Finland is preparing military installations near Lagoda and Karelia

    Crimea is not even a saving grace, as losing Moskva, a submarine, and multiple landing ships make it impossible to use for any purpose other than as a missile sponge

    Another symbolic waste by incompetents in Moscow, maybe Gergiev can play Prokofiev there for old times sake






    You should get a job with the New York Times or Washington Post. Of course, maybe you are actually pro Russia. In that case, you remind me of the Gloom, Despair, and Agony on me song from the American folk music anthology show Hee Haw.

    That's not propaganda, it's the truth,

    Based on Mediazona, we talk about 50,000 KIA

    And WIA, we speak of 150,000 at a minimum using classical KIA/WIA ratio

    While Ukrainians don't have MEDIVAC luxury of Russian army, and their KIA/WIA ratios are lopsided

    Russia does have the luxury to evacuate its wounded, and granted many of them are minor, but many are grave like dismemberment, organ damage/failure, and general trauma from war

    ----

    As for Crimea, it was already confirmed the navy had been evacuated to Novorossiysk

    Meaning interdiction in western black sea is only possible via aerial interdiction

    Ergo, the Odessa grain corridor is de facto open - which is pathetic, the Americans can keep persistent Global Hawk over Crimea

    And Russia cannot manage a persistent combat airpatrol of AWACS and fighters over its own fucking territory

    So yes, Russia has been evicted de facto from a Crimea

    ----

    The counteroffensive turned out to be a major success,

    They didn't have to breach Tokmak, or Melitopol

    It turns out even without ATACMS they were successful ,

    A dozen storm shadows and voila, Crimea is useless now,

    You can't base ships there, and next theyl start hitting the planes

    And based on recent pictures of fucking su57 in the open, Ukrainians have rich target environment

    But Moscow doesn't care anymore how stupid they look in front of the world, as long as they can continue to steal from the people, and keep up this charade of multipolarity and "resistance"

    Unless Russia captures the entire Ukrainian territory , then aerial interdiction remains the only way to stop / reduce  attacks anyway , anywhere in the region or beyond .


    Ark wrote:the Americans can keep persistent Global Hawk over Crimea

    Any NATO plane , over Russia or over the Ukraine is legitimate target . As is any plane or satellite , in a position to aid the enemy . A hard kill here , a soft kill there .

    Ark wrote:And Russia cannot manage a persistent combat airpatrol of AWACS and fighters over its own fucking territory

    Exactly how many NATO / Ukrs planes breached Russian Airspace ?

    Even if so , Russia is big and has strategic depth . Like the Israelis , the Orcs have no place to go to , when entire Ukraine becomes useless .

    Russia manufactures planes . Their losses have been minimal . Plenty left for NATO .

    Don't know why you guys waste time on Arch.

    Guy lies, goes into weird tirades and just overall flip flops.

    Its best to ignore, he will just keep talking nonsense and pushing western spin ops (lol, 200K Russians injured.  Robatino captured like what, 20th time by Ukraine? lol yeah ok).

    I am speculating he is just mad that his hero is dead (Prighozin) and takes it out on everything around him. I doubt he is even in Russia. Maybe he is, but somehow, you know, he is just a troll.

    Didn't take long for our resident troll to appear so quickly when being called out.

    There was another member here who he reminds me of.

    Anyway, let's get to real news, not Arks usual made up nonsense:

    ❗🇷🇺🇺🇦 Highlights of Russian Military Operation in Ukraine on October 4

    ▪The AFU made another attempt to strike the Crimean peninsula.

    Air defense units intercepted two Neptune anti-ship missiles near Cape Tarkhankut and over Sevastopol.

    ▪Later, the AFU landing groups on jet skis and a boat headed in the direction of Cape Tarkhankut.

    The enemy was timely detected and destroyed, one of the saboteurs was taken prisoner.

    ▪The AFU again shelled the Bryansk region border areas with cluster munitions.

    As a result of the shelling, residential houses, cars and power lines were damaged.

    ▪Belgorod region was also subjected to another massive attack by Ukrainian drones.

    Air defense units neutralized at least 19 drones over Belgorod, as well as Belgorod and Korochansky districts.

    ▪In the Starobil's'k direction, the AFU assault groups again attempted attacks in the Tors'ke salient area.

    Russian troops repelled all attacks and forced the enemy to retreat to their original lines with losses.

    ▪On the southern flank of Bakhmut's defenses, position fighting continues in the area of Klishchiivka, which has been turned into ruins.

    Russian artillerymen are striking at the village in the gray zone, foiling AFU attempts at an offensive.

    ▪In the Orikhiv sector of the front, fierce fighting continues at the Robotyne-Verbove line.

    The AFU made an unsuccessful attempt to advance to Novoprokopivka, but suffered losses and retreated.

    This cartoon is shitty.
    And your question is tricky.
    Yes, Ukraine had more men. In the conflict zone.
    Russian land forces were slightly bigger, in general. But that was not a big difference.
    A whole Russkie number of 1+mln was distributed into different branches of armed forces.
    The peak of Ukro strength was in the Summer 2022, after Russkie pulverized the first Ukro army, and mass mobilization followed.
    It was fueled with western resources and heavy propaganda load, so they didn't have the issues with it.
    Especially as in April/May Russkie withdrew as a gesture of good will. Which was sold to the Ukrozombies as great peremoga. Tons of meat caught the bait.
    At a peak, Ukrs assembled some 600k people, having about 3:1 advantage over Russkie forces.
    For a while, the river flows in another direction ...

    Ukraine has more men the Russia?

    Russia used a smaller number of men for mobility and used their superior fire power to kill the enemy.

    Which is why claims that Russia has not taken much territory look so stupid... what use is taking and holding territory when the goal is to kill the enemy army and air force and navy.

    But Moscow doesn't care anymore how stupid they look in front of the world, as long as they can continue to steal from the people, and keep up this charade of multipolarity and "resistance"

    How it looks is meaningless. The death toll is what counts and they are doing very well on that balance sheet.

    It is hilarious that you complain that they lose ships and subs to Orc attacks and now you complain they move their operational ships and subs to safer locations... they will be based in a different port further away from the Orcs but that does not mean they will stay in port and not operate in the Black Sea.

    to think this all started, because of the annexation, oh whoops! Sorry "reunification" of the historic Russian land! Crimea! Sevastopol!

    Keep using HATO speak troll. Zelensky values your contribution... now get yourself to the front line and take your sister and mother too because you will be conscripted as a family when you join the other side.

    At a peak, Ukrs assembled some 600k people, having about 3:1 advantage over Russkie forces.
    For a while, the river flows in another direction ...

    So the side that outnumbered the other side by 3 to one with the full financial support of HATO, weapons and ammo and billions of dollars lost at a ratio of about 7 or 8 to one to that smaller side of drunk inferior poorly trained Russians.

    Almost like those Russians know what they are doing even....

    But Arch believes what the western propaganda is telling him of course... except the money is running out and countries that supported Kiev are also running out of weapons and ammo and money to help... how will that effect their ability to continue fighting... as their women are conscripted I suspect a lot of men are going to be very very unhappy because they are not liberal westerners who think women should be treated exactly like men...

    They were vastly outnumbered on 240222 either, compromising manpower for firepower. Russian army committed some 80-100k personnel to the early stages of the war, supported by national guard and some 40k republican militias. Ukrs had 2:1 manpower advantage, maybe even more if we add all the power structures. And we easily can, as border guards has been used as regular army since the very beginning. Thousands of them dead, and the usual prey for Russian sabotage groups infiltrating Ukro territory.
    That is why everyone here shit his pants in Feb/March/April.
    Russkie army proved to be top class, while being limited with politically based orders.
    Represented firepower put everyone here into a kind of disbelief.
    No matter what the politicians and talking heads are saying, European military men are not as incompetent as it might seem considering those dumbasses talking. They know their shit, only are forced to operate in the existing atmosphere.
    Bundeswehr officers are not a bunch of morons, only people who witness how incompetent politicians dismantle what used to be a mighty army.
    It is quite the same in Poland. Tons of my friends are mixing out of it, some of them only await the time schedule. To get some yearly bonuses, or jump a rank higher, or get one more year of active duty that makes some 3% pension increase.

    We might add, that it is already proven that to operate Sevastopol with no issues, Russia needs a buffer zone much deeper into 404 territory, which makes the future of Odessa crystal clear.
    I may add to this equation the fact, tat whatever will be left of Banderastan, can't be allowed to have a nuclear power plant, because they can do stupid things with it at any moment.

    Bahahahaha russia russia russia

    It isnt too late to help your people in their time of need. I think you are being melodramatic but I understand. You want quick results, a pliant enemy and easy glory. You are also afraid. I would be too. You dont have to fight but you can find some way to help. This isnt my fight as I am American and love America even though she is dying. This isnt about Putin. It is about ridding the western cliques in power of dangerous rivals. They want Russia with any other leader than Putin. Reason being is if they get a bourgeois lefty in power they can either dominate him/her or that politician would already be on their side. A hard right nationalist would ultimately divide Russia and then thr west can utilize all it's soft power to further diminish what remains after the chaos.

    Putin is a legitimate alternative to globohomo. As a result it is scared of the current Russian regime. Anyone supporting regime change in Russia right now is directly allied to globohomo. Putin is all you got right now. Could be much, much worse. About Russia moving many of its vessels it is thr smart thing to do. The west is trying to goad Russia to move before it is ready. I don't know when Russia will move but they will inevitably have to. Much life will be lost. It is sad. But right now Russia is doing what it must.

    Anyways hang in there. Dont make rash judgements. Dont let your feelings guide your reason. I am pretty sure now that Russia will succeed, but I am afraid the power cliques over here might feel so desperate that they may actually try something very dangerous. UK seems to be the worst culprit in this.

    NATO will take anything to call a victory, such as the Argentines and their successful attacks on the Royal Navy that to this day gives them to right to say they didn't lose the war, they just came second.

    From all sources combined - roughly 70k for each side. Doesn’t mean it’s real number or represent reality. Sources for horses. 

    “And WIA, we speak of 150,000 at a minimum using classical KIA/WIA ratio”
    classical thinking doesn’t work here. I will tell you why

    “While Ukrainians don't have MEDIVAC luxury of Russian army, and their KIA/WIA ratios are lopsided”
    Ukrainians technically should have better MEDIVAC and care than Russian army due to medivac vehicles and territory where they can send injured to hospitals when Russia cannot have same level. But in reality, hate drops kill MEDEVAC attemps, it’s very hard to evacuate. And now Ukraine is attacking and their lines are in the fire zone so evacuation is very risky and it doesn’t matter how good their medical is. 

    “Russia does have the luxury to evacuate its wounded, and granted many of them are minor, but many are grave like dismemberment, organ damage/failure, and general trauma from war”

    Both Russia and Ukraine have hard time evacuating, but advantage is that rear is safer for Russia. Still, I wouldn’t call it a luxury. Those at screening lines are on their own. Much better at main defence lines, but surely, not much action there

    ----

    “As for Crimea, it was already confirmed the navy had been evacuated to Novorossiysk”
    Took them long enough. There were people saying this after Moskva.

    “Meaning interdiction in western black sea is only possible via aerial interdiction”
    CAP is best tool.

    “Ergo, the Odessa grain corridor is de facto open - which is pathetic, the Americans can keep persistent Global Hawk over Crimea”
    What insurance company will cover boats trying to do de-facto grain transport? Also, nothing apart physical destruction of a drone by a jets exhaust caused ISR assets to stop working against Russia. 

    “And Russia cannot manage a persistent combat airpatrol of AWACS and fighters over its own fucking territory”
    why is that?

    “So yes, Russia has been evicted de facto from a Crimea”

    Navy perhaps, but what about Simferopol? Air defence systems? Fortifications?

    “The counteroffensive turned out to be a major success”

    No 

    “They didn't have to breach Tokmak, or Melitopol”

    They have to

    “It turns out even without ATACMS they were successful ,

    A dozen storm shadows and voila, Crimea is useless now”

    Crimea didn’t sink just yet. 

    “You can't base ships there, and next theyl start hitting the planes “

    they already did hit the airfields like… year ago?

    “And based on recent pictures of fucking su57 in the open, Ukrainians have rich target environment”

    I am all for hangars for Su-57 due to sophisticated equipment being exposed, but not because of Ukrainians. 

    “But Moscow doesn't care anymore how stupid they look in front of the world, as long as they can continue to steal from the people,  and keep up this charade of multipolarity and "resistance" “

    Not a fan of current Kremlin, but I don’t think that war is helping them steal, lol. You can blame people for being slow, useless, idiots, but no one went to fight this just so they can steal more. 
    For whole Russia, it’s an existential war… 
    All I can say, that you are lucky that you are not Ukrianian. You would find way more things to doom about. Western support hanging on a thread, manoeuvre units being expended at irreplaceable levels, ammunition shortage due to mosquito logistics, rear strikes, Russian glide bombs that can’t be stopped, Russian drone spam, bad news about new Russian drones going on the conveyor belts, high llosses, drop in quality of troops, very little planning for defence if CO fails, basically it’s all VA bank
    It’s good not to be blinded by own successes or (!!!) own issues. Nothing goes well in real war, build a proper image of what is going on.

    This hit the TVs in the West today, another Russian atrocity of course.

    Then there is this spin on it, self inflicted for public sympathy.

    @mazzenilsson
    Today, at about 13:15, a café and a shop in the village of Groza, Kupyansky district, where there were many civilians, were shelled.

    Already 51 dead. They were gathered for a wake, the traditional dinner after a funeral. 51 people is not a small number, must have been a good, popular person.

    Groza is a small village outside the small town of Shevchenkove. It is more than 17 miles from the combat Front, which is east of Kupiyansk.

    This is out of range of most conventional artillery, therefore it is almost certainly a missile attack. And almost certainly, a Ukrainian missile attack, pending further details.

    This is the 3:rd shelling with mass casualties, timed to Zelensky's meetings.

    In the previous two, the guilt of Kiev was proven.

    Zelensky has already managed to accuse Russia and ask for military assistance and money for more futile resistance.



    Then we find out who's funeral and who was killed.

    About that strike on some shithole in Kupyansk with over 50KIA.

    The event was made in memory of a killed Aidar Officer Kozyr Andrey Viktorovich. Reportedly over 100 Khinzirs were present, at least 50% are KIA.

    A woman who leaked coordinates of Moskal troops also happened to become 200.

    Moskal learning from burgers.


    So who did it?

    But will there be anything left to defend?

    These are ex Qatari Gepards, bought back by the Germans.

    They should arrive in Ukraine before the end of this year; they will protect the port infrastructure of the Odessa region, grain storage facilities, as well as grain transportation routes to Romania.
