    2023 Russkie made 2.0 mln artillery rounds.
    This is propably at the lower end of the estimates.

    Some EU and NATO countries are considering the possibility of sending their military to Ukraine on the basis of bilateral agreements 
    But they won´t be part of the war!  lol1

    most likely RF SOF units, (Special Operations Forces)

    They are mostly meant for ops in other countries. This kind of work recon/sabotage/disruption behind enemy lines are usually only done by the top tier special forces units in an millitary.

    These guys are ones that are totally committed to their jobs.
    And they have to be to do that kind of work, but they make some heavy personal sacrifices.

    Like almost never home, always away on training and missions.
    Very little space for family/social life.
    Your family never knows where you are or know what happened if something went wrong.

    You really have to be OK with that, not to mention the heavy physical/mental burden that comes with the type's of trainings these guys do.

    From what i know from my own time in the Millitary, is that guys in elite units like Marines, Airborne rotate for a few years to these elite of the elite units and rotate out after a few years back to their own units that they originated from.

    But yes, these guys do not play nice.
    They really can not afford to either to be honest.

    Thank you. I said brutal because of the immersive and close-up images of the battlefield (obviously not seen in a conventional media), not because of the Russian guys who seem very serious and professional

    Smoke is coming out of the open turret hatches but the driver's remains closed. The entire crew is dead.

    A way to tell if the ammo protection measure worked is if all hatches are opened - that means the everyone made it out in time. The driver is furthest from the the ammo in the turret and the hull so he should have the highest chances of survival in case of an internal ammo fire. If he didn't make it out, then the turret crew is more than likely dead.

    Get these people working in Siberia and the Arctic building the BAM extension and the Northern Latitudinal Railway ASAP.

    Give them the option, with full pay to do this if they want, but don't treat it like a punishment.

    Some EU and NATO countries are considering the possibility of sending their military to Ukraine on the basis of bilateral agreements - Prime Minister of Slovakia..

    Do it. HATO countries seem to think their military forces are magical and that when Ukrainian forces fail it is because they are Soviet trained with Soviet equipment... both of which is inferior to western HATO training and equipment and weapons.

    Ironic since the Warsaw Pacts equipment was probably better integrated together during the cold war than HATO equipment is now.

    BREAKING: 'We do not rule out the possibility of sending NATO soldiers to Ukraine' – Macron

    If you do you had better get some agreement with Russia or they will be more military targets.

    Maybe HATO is worried about all this peer to peer level experience in real combat is making Russian forces formidable, so they want to put their own guys in this meat grinder to harden them up a bit and sharpen the tools... but they might just end up losing lots of men to no good return.

    I would think lots of Afghans and Iraqis and Syrians and Chechens would love to join up to get a shot at HATO soldiers where the odds are not just even but in your favour.

    This is actually a good opportunity to bait Finland and the Baltics to attack Russia first, then Russia will have a reason to evict them from Russian lands where they are illegally squatting at present

    Russia does not need more land, they will be investing in their new territory and making it grow and develop like western countries will not because they have loans to pay back at increasing interest rates to deal with as they continue to borrow to make ends meet. The future for the EU and US will be austerity measures and extreme cuts to budgets... but not their military budgets which they will have to increase because Russia and China are now the enemy... that is set in stone.

    Russia doesn't need to do anything... just let them build walls.

    There seems to be a plan in place to divide western Ukraine up should the Russians get too far, This also entails putting Odessa under the care of a Western country.

    I said from day 1 the longer russia takes the greater the risk of this.

    I personally don't see the russians attacking polish troops or other countries if they do not attack first, we will see I guess.

    One thing is for certain, Russia has lost its chance to completely secure Ukraine now.

    Its remaining BEST end is to secure up to the Dnperio river and odessa region

    No as A5 can only be triggered if russia attacks their lands directly, etc if they attack french soil etc.

    There are already French troops among the NATO mercenaries trapped in Ukraine. But also, I assure you that Macron has no chance of putting official troops in Ukraine. French society will not tolerate him getting involved in an unpopular and stranger war. Macron is a weak president and French society is a tinderbox. They couldn't do anything in Niger. French society, for some mysterious reason, are not stupid like the rest of the western Europeans. They are not USA Americans without neurons either. They are pedantic but intelligent and cultured people. There are many progressive globalists (inheritance of the French revolution) but France is the cradle of the right and the monarchical tradition identified with Russia. The average Frenchman is not NATOIST and is not anti-Russian. They rival the Anglo-Saxon model of the United States and England
    There are the French who want to bring black Africans to destroy their culture (promoted by Soros), but also the French who defend their race and welcome Russia's war against globalist progressivism.

    NATO troops won't go into Ukraine

    This was already brought up in 2022, and Putin activated the strategic missile forces, conducting Topol and Yars firing

    At that moment NATO went completely quiet and made zero comment about intervention

    All Putin does is activate the strategic missile forces and hotheads will calm down as before, even if it is an election year

    Actually I recall during the height of Bucha hysteria, some massacred civilians by Kiev was used as a pretext to drum up western support for an intervention

    Of course on the standard ground of humanitariansim

    I remember how fast Russian ambassadors were quickly saying, no do not worry, a tactical nuke will not be launched , to calm down western capitals

    At thay time of course, Putin was testing Yars over at Sary Shagan

    Sometimes it's good not to enforce some little red lines, that way you can be firm about a single one

    No western troops in Ukraine, and you don't get tacnuked

    There seems to be a plan in place to divide western Ukraine up should the Russians get too far, This also entails putting Odessa under the care of a Western country.

    The west had lots of plans, and seems to need to change them all the time when they fail.

    I personally don't see the russians attacking polish troops or other countries if they do not attack first, we will see I guess.

    An armed military force on Ukrainian territory is fair game. HATO has been arming the Ukrainians and has been sending specialists to advise and train and even take part in this conflict so killing them would not be something new.

    One thing is for certain, Russia has lost its chance to completely secure Ukraine now.

    HATO countries actually wanting to send troop into the Ukraine just proves it is on the verge of collapse and they don't want Russian troops on their borders.

    Ironic because Russian fears of HATO troops on the Ukraine Russia border was Russia just being paranoid right?

    Its remaining BEST end is to secure up to the Dnperio river and odessa region

    The west is not going to dictate terms in this conflict, Russia is going to decide how this finishes.

    No as A5 can only be triggered if russia attacks their lands directly, etc if they attack french soil etc.

    They said they wouldn't attack targets on Russian soil with HATO supplied weapons... and then they said the regions that voted to join the RF didn't count as Russian soil and then they said the Crimea was not Russian soil... and now they say Kiev is just defending itself and can do what it pleases.

    With such flexibility I am sure Russia can make the same assurances to the safety of armed HATO troops inside the Ukraine.


    Also no one said send their troops into Russia but to assume control and protection of areas in Western Ukraine

    Fair game target for the Russian military would you not say?

    They wont be killing HATO troops, their bombs and missiles will in fact be aimed at the ground beneath their feet.

    Macron wouldn't if France was alone but they wouldn't be, would be with a host of other eu nations, to move into western, central and Odessa to spilt the land up

    When Zelenskys regime announces such a deal is the day Zelenskys government gets liquidated and any troops crossing into Ukraine territory will be expunged.

    Is quote button disabled again or is my phone being weird?

    Quote button is temporarily disabled.

    We know exactly who those two people are, why aren't they just banned instead of punishing the rest of us?

    That has been brought up and is under consideration as we speak...
