    Everything is fully legit, Swiss bank account can confirm that at any moment!
    Take a look at Zelenskys face as he was touring the area.
    You can clearly see how disappointed he was.
    And he was caluclating in his head how much of his money was
    stolen from the construction companies that had the contracts to
    build those defensive lines.

    And they use a Cessna to attack ? And what if they had none ? They would use a knife and fork ? Until they have hope , they will fight . You tube by Orcs show , some have hope . Did anyone think how to take their hope away ? Their greatest weapon ? Hope can be destroyed . Here is how : You arrange a retreat from an area under your control . You tell the Orcs to come and take up positions . Dig trenches and bring equipment . You then annihilate them and put it on TV . Then you repeat this procedure ! Once they see that , no matter what they do , in a set battle , they will always loose . Then they will loose hope . They will surrender . War ends !

    So it seems Greece is now willing to provide a large amount of 155mm, 105mm artillery shells and 30mm and 40mm cannon rounds, from it's storage depots. There is also mention of 175mm shells although Ukraine doesn't have any systems of the sort, but Greece stated they could donate such guns but that they would take sometime to overhaul them. But the bit I found a bit odd in the article was that they were going to donate 203mm shells as apparently the 203mm shells for USA made guns can fit in the 2S7 Pion. But generally speaking majority of not all of Soviet cold war systems and ammo wasn't compatible with any western ammo (although I might be wrong) however a quick look at both shells that the USA shells don't have as .uch range as soviet shells and they are around 10-20kgs lighter depending on the type surely this could mean that they aren't compatible is this just Ukrainian fantasy?

    If Europe seems hellbent on providing shells and the Czech initiative of sourcing 800,000 shells (at rip off costs) surely the Russians should just look at either destroying the actual guns Ukraine has or destroying the ammo convoys or even better both. If majority of the guns are destroyed the ammo becomes defacto useless and likewise the guns become useless if no ammo. It seems a lot of drone strikes on guns only seems to take them out of service until repaired. Maybe a FAB 100 or FAB 250 would be a better choice, the smaller drones could still be used to disable them then the FAB's come in afterwards. Artillery and drones seem to be a very key component to winning the battles on the ground.

    " Acting" Zelensky signed a law according to which the norm on "limited fitness" in Ukraine is abolished

    All “restricted fit” must undergo a medical examination within nine months. There they will be given a pass or fail category.

    Not sure who Zelensky is trying to fool but for months now we have seen pictures of adolescents/teenagers from 14/15/16yrs and upwards in trenches and on buses heading to the frontline. The guys brain is clearly rotten to core with cocaine abuse.

    So the military Summary channel is saying they have leaks stating Romania is moving vast amount of armour and are planning on going into Moldova and Ukraine..


    If true then Romania being played by the west and will only become a target.

    Romania doesn't have a very large military  let alone much for equipment left.

    So I'm thinking this is just nothing.

    Edit: They could be trying to work with France on moving into Ukraine, but they will get destroyed and Russia has emphasised that to even France military branch directly. So I am unsure what their intentions or end goals are.

    That's right. The Romanian armed forces are utterly obsolete. Their army still use T-55 tanks with 100mm rifled guns. Their most modern aircraft are second hand F-16s similar to the ones Ukraine is getting as military aid. They only retired the MiG-21 like last year.

    The Romanian economy is doing much better than it used to. So I am guessing they will be a fat sheep for increased NATO spending.

    I assume the equipment will either be sent to Ukraine, or is getting prepositioned as part of some kind of NATO contingent.

    NATO contingent would be hit pretty hard, and then they can't shy away afterwards. I know they are dumb, but they aren't entirely suicidal.

    That said, Russia shouldn't be moving so slowly now at this point. If they continue slow, they may lose any opportunity to get to Odessa if the west decides to flood it with their troops. Thus giving NATO a major victory in obtaining an important position in black sea. There is also Kharkov which continues to hit at Russia proper and still standing.

    At this point, I'm also having difficulty understanding Russia's tactic is here. Because all Ukraine is doing is throwing people at Russia, and they still have plenty more to keep throwing at them.

    A few analysts believe next month Russia will start a big offensive Kharkiv being one of the main targets. The population have already started to leave the city (not in massive numbers yet, but it's happening) that would leave Sumy and chernihiv ripe for the taking. If Sumy falls then your straight into Poltava and Dnipro. That would seal the rest of Donbass..then your onto Zapo, Niko, Kherson, then finally Odessa. The issue with Zaporozhye is the nuclear plant the Ukrainians might decide to do something stupid and of a terrorist nature as they become a sore loser at losing Zaporozhye. Niko, Kherson obviously have the river which slows things down, and U can't get to Odessa without taking them first so unfortunately there won't be anything quick liberation for Odessa. But I would say Odessa is a very important region for Russia to liberate in fact it's probably the most important along with Donbass areas, (obviously U will take Niko Kherson Zapo on the way to Odessa). Kharkiv Sumy chernihiv are buffers from further shelling on to Russian homeland.

    "not massive" is a kind of an understatement, as there is a line of cars at exits up to the horizon.

    And the ukrs are doing stupid things all the time, so call me surprised if they can do more Rolling Eyes What a Face

    It is not about the size or potency, but about making a breach.
    They will push the less resistant NATO member to do something stupid, to cause a casus.
    NATO soldiers are dying there on a daily basis, but in quiet.
    As soon as Russkie will bomb the shit out of an official contingent, this will create one more leverage.
    I only hope that gruz 200 in EU colours will bring some refreshing scare.

    I can't find the article. But supposedly the great wall of toblerone was conceived as a way to offload some of the substandard concrete that's churned out by Russia's vast cement enterprises.

    Russian corruption is just build different, I guess. Padding their pockets, prosecuting a war, and still maximizing all the KPIs for the development of the state.

    Did I mention the Russians are pouring more concrete in Ukraine in mere months than Ukraine has ever did throughout its more than 30 years of sorry existence as a state?

    So the military Summary channel is saying they have leaks stating Romania is moving vadts amount of armour and are planning on going into Moldova and Ukraine..

    Good, if they move on Moldova then Russia will be forced to respond, and the response will likely be devastating for Romania and any countries stupid enough to join them.

    The Russians and pro Russians in Transnitria would probably kick their arses without support, but cruise missiles equipped with cluster bomb warheads would chew through armoured columns and troops.

    Air power being used in the attack would also be vulnerable and the Russians could deliver plenty of decent modern MANPADS and KORNETs to deal with anything they are equipped with.

    It would also make it necessary to cut Kiev off from the Black Sea which would mean Odessa fate would be sealed.

    I rather suspect there are back channel discussions with various groups in and around Odessa who realise there is a bleak black future with Kiev so looking to Russia for rescue is their best option and the best option for their children.

    But supposedly the great wall of toblerone was conceived as a way to offload some of the substandard concrete that's churned out by Russia's vast cement enterprises.

    Except the lines the Russians created worked just fine, while the Ukrainian model appears to be the junior model that engineering vehicles with blades on front could just drive through...

    Ukraine's 153rd Mechanized Brigade is no longer mechanized, and has been converted into an infantry brigade. The 152nd Mechanized Brigade is also lacking vehicles and is reportedly also set to become an infantry brigade.

    What I find interesting, is that csto members becoming rather problematic for Russia when Russia is destroying Ukraine.

    Uzbekistan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan,.....

    They all of a sudden are working against Russia while bordering her and being so far away from USA and UK.

    ‘Take no NATO prisoners’ – Medvedev

    Bounties should be offered for the killing of NATO soldiers if they are deployed in Ukraine to fight against Russian troops, former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has said on Thursday.

    In a post on social media, Medvedev lashed out at Kiev’s Western backers, arguing that they are “taking the world for fools” if they believe that sending foreign forces to Ukraine would not lead to dangerous escalation. If NATO soldiers do end up in Ukraine, they will not be limited to non-combat roles, he claimed.

    “They will become part of the regular forces that are fighting against us. That is why they will have to be treated only as the enemy,” Medvedev, who currently serves as deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, wrote. “We should take no prisoners! The highest rewards must be given out for every killed NATO soldier.”

    Russian businessmen and activists have previously set bounties for the destruction of Western-made tanks in Ukraine.

    https://www.rt.com/russia/595440-no-nato-soldier-prisoners-medvedev/

    I sincerely hope that this is not all hot air talk. Killing Unofficial NATzO personnel in Ukraine should be a TOP priority. Along with destroying food, water, and power infrastructure in Ukraine to starve the entire population to death. attack
