    Oh come on, that Patriot made a 100 percent interception of a Russian missile so no defeat there. That said, Patriots are a one and done disposable weapons system like an rpg right? They're not meant to he used repeatedly? Right? Right?

    It is a 100% interception rate, you dummies!
    This Iskander was surely intercepted!

    By the way, just take a look at the fragmentation pattern.
    It is some ... 300-400m radius?
    Fully covered by the fragments?
    Heavy ones, considering the amount of dust those created ...
    Yeyks ... That hurts ...

    Ukros bringing air defenses close to border

    Lancet destroyed Buk, and Patriot got iskanderized

    Seems the Ukros fell for the bait

    In bringing AD forward they try to stop FAB carriers from working

    But being so close makes you an easy target for Lancets

    It is a Buk, but it clearly lacks the Buk missiles.
    Some sort of crate containers.
    It exploded nicely, so there were missiles inside for sure - the question is what type?
    AMRAAM?

    Do they actually think it is worth sacrificing an entire generation just to keep Russia out? Do they actually WANT to fight Russia until the last Ukrainian?

    Or are they being unwillingly sent to die? If yes, then why aren't they able to revolt against the regime? Are they not able to organize? Why isn't Russia more actively helping underground partisans in Ukraine? Or do these partisan groups even exist?

    My uneducated guess is that the current nationalist regime  in Ukraine is a well-organized and western-supported minority, while the majority of Ukrainians are apathetic and unorganized.  

    A well-organized minority can rule over an entire country even if they represent just 5% of the population, if the rest of the country does not care and is apathetic. It happened in 1917 in Russia with the Bolsheviks. This is the reason why I find it difficult to understand why Russia refuses to kill the representatives of Ukrainian regime. Why kill thousands of conscripts instead of cutting the head of the monster.

    The only Ukrainians with any guts are the Nazis. This explains 80% of everything that's going on.

    There are many anti-Zelensky and anti-Bandera Ukrainians in fact. They're just mostly outside the Ukraine by now, that's all.

    Well there is a small core of informers in the Ukraine that feeds Russia intel of course. Especially in large Russian-speaking cities such as Odessa and Kharkov.



    Them colonizing Poland does not mean they are anti-Zelensky and anti-Bandera. It could mean they will go after an easier target in the future, and currently a fifth column is being prepared.

    And if the Ukrainian nationalists have guts then why "Azov" runs away when they do not have any non-Azov "meat" in front of them?

    Some sources from the Ukrainian side note that there are significant changes in the tactics of using aerial bombs near Volchansk and the surrounding area.

    While FABs are weeding out supports and fortifications, ODABs are flying into barracks and concrete buildings occupied by Ukrainian troops.

    As a result, not only communications, target designation and reconnaissance are disrupted, but also any communication between units on the front line and in the immediate rear, and the connectivity of nearby positions is lost.

    Russian troops used the same technique during the assault on Avdeevka.

    On May 9, Ukrainians overloaded Starlink by 70% to watch the Victory Parade in Moscow

    According to the company, in Ukraine people massively connected via Starlink to open YouTube and watch the Victory Parade.

    According to the report, the average viewing depth was 91%.

    Tying up 150,000 cannon fodder in Kiev will prevent the Nazis from sending reinforcements to Odessa and if they send them anyway then Russian forces will easily encircle the city and make a speedrun to Lviv. From there they can bomb the crap out of the Banderastanis and also prevent any more weapons from reaching further than the Polish or Romanian border. This war could be over a lot quicker than some of us here are expecting.

    I also suspect there's a large number of Ukrainian POW's right now that would love to join Russia in pulverizing the Nazi stronghold of Galicia so they should be used instead wherever possible to save Russian personnel.

Several dozen dead soldiers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, killed in a shooting battle, how many Ukrainians were destroyed by artillery and aviation is still unknown.

    For example, ODAB 1500, which flew straight down the Ukrainian road in Volchansk at about one in the morning, probably evaporated almost everyone who was at this facility.

    Simple.  It is in Russias long term interest for every last Ukrainian male of fighting age who hates Russia to be given the chance to join the AFU, pick up a weapon, head to the front and to get KILLED.  That means one less Ukro enemy to deal with after the fighting is done, and one less potential troublemaker or potential insurgent.  Some men will be consripted against their will and forced to fight, many or even most of them will be ethnic Russians, and that is unfortunate, but it doesn't change the logic.  If those unwilling victims of the regime die in combat, most of the blame will fall on the shoulders of the deposed Ukronazi regime, ie a Russian micro-win. If those unwilling victims survive until the final defeat and are demobilised, they will most likely blame their misfortune on the deposed Ukronazi regime, ie a Russian micro-win. Such micro-wins will accumulate to Russias gain.

    This is the calculus of war.  It's nasty, brutal, inhuman and borderline psychotic, but its the only way to win a struggle between two so profoundly at-odds ideological outlooks.  Kill or be killed, eliminate the enemy, hold your nose and suspend your basic humanity until the job is done and the healing can start.  Russia didn't want this bloody fratricidal war (NATO did) but will sure as hell finish it, and will finish it to their satisfaction. Twisted Evil

    For once I have to agree with you! However it is now clear that the enemy is on the run and it seems likely that the Russians will quickly gain some territory in the Kharkov direction. So much so that Kharkov itself will come under threat once more, but it is unlikely that the Russians would want to make a full scale assault on this huge city. Lviv on the other hand will probably be flattened when the time comes.

    “The West is in panic, it has no idea what to do,” he concluded.

    The only way to stop them is negotiate a surrender, but that is the only thing not on the table it seems...

    By the way, just take a look at the fragmentation pattern.
    It is some ... 300-400m radius?

    Yes, I noticed that... not a huge fire ball but a very very dense fragmentation  pattern that seems to have a rather large radius...

    Kiev is a distraction, Odessa is what matters

    Zelensky wasn't so brave when Russian forces were near Kiev... I think that foot on the throat was a good thing...

    They will get closer to Kiev just to force Ukrs to divert troops from more important areas of the front

    Spreading them thinner makes them easier to deal with everywhere.

    According to the report, the average viewing depth was 91%.

    Many of them hoping for an explosion no doubt...

    Why keep they sending such crap?

    You can't call them crap just because they do no harm...  Embarassed

    Kub and Buk are somehow interoperational.

    My understanding is that are compatible... BUK can use KUB missiles and vice versa but performance limitations are accrued with the inferior missile or using the newer missile as part of the older system.

    Tying up 150,000 cannon fodder in Kiev will prevent the Nazis from sending reinforcements to Odessa

    I suspect the effort needed to stop the two advances towards Kiev and Odessa will destroy what is left of the functioning Orc army and it will collapse or surrender...

    And if not it will be pushed back anyway.

    Russia didn't want this bloody fratricidal war (NATO did) but will sure as hell finish it, and will finish it to their satisfaction.

    Because doing a half arsed job means getting to do it again in 5-10 years time and it will be even more bloody then because you can't expect the west to keep making the same mistakes so if they get more things right it will end up damaging Russia more.

    Better to sort it all out now.

    It seems  more people are being allowed to speak out.... this is from a former Boris Johnson advisor:

    Ukraine a ‘corrupt s**thole’ – ex-Boris Johnson adviser
    Backing Kiev pushed Russia and China into an alliance, Dominic Cummings has said

    The UK and its allies got tricked into backing a “corrupt mafia state” in Ukraine and getting into a war of attrition against a Moscow-Beijing partnership, Dominic Cummings has said in an interview.

    The longtime Tory political strategist led the Vote Leave campaign for Brexit and was one of the key aides to then-PM Boris Johnson until resigning in November 2020.

    “We should have never got into the whole stupid situation,” Cummings told the outlet I News in an interview published on Wednesday, commenting on London’s full-throated support for Kiev. He also described Ukraine as a “corrupt s**thole that doesn’t matter at all.”

    “This is not a replay of 1940 with the pumpkin [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky as the Churchillian underdog,” he added. “This whole Ukrainian corrupt mafia state has basically conned us all and we’re all going to get f**ked as a consequence.”

    Western sanctions have been “more of a disaster” for the EU than for Russia, driving up the cost of living while pushing Moscow and Beijing closer together, according to Cummings. All the West managed to do is get into a war of attrition with Russia, “who we pushed into an alliance with the world’s biggest manufacturing power.”

    Cummings also addressed the argument that Russian President Vladimir Putin needed to be “taught a lesson” about invading neighbors.

    “The lesson we’ve taught Putin is that we’re a bunch of total f**king jokers,” he said. “I mean, Putin already knew that before the war. But this has emphasized it and broadcast it to the entire world, what a bunch of clowns we are,” he added.

    Between the sanctions regime and the US trying to seize frozen Russian assets, the West is encouraging the emergence of alternative global financial systems, he explained.

    Cummings slammed Johnson – with whom he is no longer on speaking terms – for using the Ukraine conflict for “acting out his Churchillian fantasies,” as well as the Parliament, which “swallowed all of his total bulls**t on Ukraine and actually took it seriously.”

    Johnson was the key figure in getting Kiev to reject a peace deal with Russia in April 2022, according to the top Ukrainian negotiator, as well as Ukrainian media.

    The former PM denied his role in scuttling the talks, calling the account “total nonsense and Russian propaganda.” However, he confirmed that he told Zelensky the UK would back him “a thousand percent” and that any deal with Moscow would be bad.
