    Yeah 30 years ago. They are not in flying confitions and most were canibalized in order to keep the few remaining in operational conditions which were hunted by su-35 and r-37M for more than a year now.

    They have no much left.

    Don't know how accurate this claim is but it probably isn't that far out, but rather than Reznikov getting it all this is probably the total from which, as the boss, he got the biggest cut.

    🇺🇦‼ Former Ukrainian defense minister Reznikov stole a cool Billion Dollars! 💲1,000,000,000

    He was fired for corruption, but left without being charged. He’s drinking champagne on a yacht somewhere.

    ➡ In case you were wondering why more tax money needs to be sent.

    Where it goes about 404, nothing is too ridiculous to believe in.
    This week alone, they admitted quite officially that at least 30% of western grants and transfers were simply stolen.

    At least.
    One third.
    Official admit.

    Draw your own conclusions.

    The 30% are those that will be thrown under the bus - the rest (70%) will retire in the Bahamas with a lifetime's coke supply.

    It is easier for you to understand, while you are living in a bloody SA ...
    I guess some of the folks who are from Latin America can understand that too.
    But the thing is out of the radar of any Westerner. It is a scale of corruption that runs out of a box.

    In northern Ukraine, the Armed Forces of Ukraine installed 500 thousand anti-tank mines.

    This was stated by the commander of the North group of troops , Sergei Naev :

    “In the main directions of the enemy’s probable offensive, from June 2022 to the present day, more than 500 thousand anti-tank mines have been installed. In particular, anti-tank minefields, anti-tank groups of mines, sets of anti-personnel explosive devices, land mines, mined rubble. The density of mine-explosive obstacles in our area of ​​​​responsibility increased 16 times."

    As we are saying here, it is not a matter of one being sane, but the diagnosis to be accurate enough.

    The Russian Military has divided the SVO into 6 Fronts or Directions. They are:

    Kupyansk direction - stretches from the Russian - Ukrainian border at the junction of the Oskil River to around the area of Svatove.

    Krasny Liman direction - stretches from the area around Svatove to the Siverskyi Donetsk River around Bilohorivka.

    Donetsk direction - stretches from the Siverskyi Donetsk River around Bilohorivka to the area around Novomykhailivka.

    South Donetsk direction - stretches from the area around Novomykhailivka to the area of the Donetsk - Zaporozhye border.

    Zaporozhye direction - stretches from the area of the Donetsk - Zaporozhye border to the Dnipro River.

    Kherson direction - stretches along the Dnipro River with eastern Kherson.

    And Russia has the resources to allocate to each of these six zones. The Ukr army doesn't.

    After the Avdeevka push, the usual Ukrainian shelling of Donetsk civilians pretty much ceased. Until today that is - they fired multiple HIMARS on the city, all intercepted as far as I can tell.

    Artillery shells are near impossible to neutralize, so this is an improvement anyway. Really shows you that they're hell bent on terrorizing Donbass though, even diverting far more expensive assets to do it when the usual stuff isn't working.

    Those can be intercepted, but needs Tor for that. IT can takie out even a 120 mm mortar mine. Tor is both expensive and relatively small ranged, do IT is very hard to cover a milion city with IT.
