    There are a number of Ukrainians around here but I have been bombarded lately with Nigerian workers and I'm retired...

    I just came acctoss this map of russian oil reserve in purple. Quite interesting the west thought they could make them run out of fuel in the beggining... their oil reserves are bigger than Ukraine.

    Why do you think the west is so "interested" in Russia. Russia has vast resources (not just oil and gas) unlike any other country in the world.

    @Isos

    That map does not show the Bazhenov formation. This is a huge (two trillion barrel estimated) non-conventional oil reservoir zone. Gazprom has been
    adapting fracking technology to the characteristics of this formation and in the future it will be exploited.

    BTW, the Bazhenov formation is not a scam like the Green River shale kerogen "oil" deposits.

    They got rid of most equipment reserves
    Not only reserves, but active duty stuff.
    Some units of the Marines had to give up their Himars launchers.
    Denmark gave up most if not all of her howitzers.

    while a large part of western GDP is based on financial frauds,
    As I stated before, try to stop a T-72B3 with a Credit Default Swap.

    briefing reports 1725 casualties 
    We are closing in on the 2.000 mark, baby!!!

    they flamed up a fuel tank in a middle of nowhere!
    And some 50kg drone hit some empty parking lot.

    As long as conflict is being carried at +/- 100 km wide belt - it is a part that will need rebuilding.
    That´s the plan.
    Some remnants of the regime will hide in bigger cities and run to the western regions,
    but the damages done by hunting them down will be relatively minimal.

    I have been bombarded lately with Nigerian workers
    Who is throwing them?  Suspect

    Quite interesting the west thought they could make them run out of fuel in the beggining.
    There are trains full of oil/fuel going to China on a daily basis, each of which
    could fuel the whole SMO for a week.
    (Propably exaggerated a little, but you get the point.)

    Western ignorance of Russia has done nothing but play into Russia's hands throughout the whole war
    On the flip side: They could be ignorant enough to send troops (openly) or do even more
    stupid things.

    That map does not show the Bazhenov formation. 
    Some offshore deposits are missing, too.

    I hope they do, NATO troops need to start dying (openly) in this clown conflict instead of hopeless Ukrainian conscripts (Nazi battalions can keep dying though, that's fine). Let Poland, France and the UK have to justify to their people why thousands of their soldiers are getting killed in the Ukraine every week fighting Russia for a corrupt, homosexual, Khazar midget.

    For them to say 0.5% is the amount of their contribution is a lie

    Yes they have more equipment, but we are not talking about equipment

    The biggest contribution of the west is ISR, that is the KH-11 Khrennen keyhole sat constellation, the microsats for optical recon, the electronic signals sats and comms, the starlink constellation, the radars, the AWACS support, the training and political assistance

    All of this is much more significant then just giving them vehicles and weapons, which they have done , and are incapable of replacing even the little they have used

    So it's erroneous for western fanboys to really think that their equipment is just able to change anything jn the war

    No actually they are assisting Ukraine with more than 70% of their ISR capability and the equipment is just an enabling potential

    But it would not change anything, it would just be more destroyed equipment that they cannot replace

    That's the real reason they don't increase support

    On paper they have huge stocks, but in reality, if they start losing and using that equipment it is basically gone forever as they can't replace or sustain the rates of loss

    I am sorry, but after grandma downs missile with jam, ghost of chicken kiev, Ukraine has super double secret weapon, glorious offensive will turn tide, we are democracy, etc I decided to pay no attention to anything pro Ukrainian because all you fascist zombies do is lie.  Here is what we do know.  Claims of genocide by Russia are dogshit, 25,000 civilian dead in more than two years of war is remarkable considering that the "rules based world order" murdered anywhere from 30 to 500 thousand Iraqis a year and that Netenyahu has murdered over 100,000 Palestinian civilians.  Claims of the superiority of NATO weapons are dogshit.  Claims that Russia's economy would collapse are dog shit.  Claims that Russia was isolated are dogshit.  Claims that Schroedinger's Putin -too weak to win in Ukraine yet an existential threat to Europe unless you give hundreds of billions of dollars to the most corrupt nation on the planet are dogshit.  Casualty claims of 31 thousand Ukrainians are dogshit as that number is half a million dead and possibly up to three times that many permanently disabled.  Those rare times the west accidentally tells the truth we see that Russia has sadly lost 51,000 brave warriors fighting against fascism.  That said, the unsustainable claim is of course dog shit.

    Now my question is why should anyone willingly take a look at pro Ukrainian dog shit? Especially their "social media?" Hey if you want to plate up a heaping steaming portion of dog shit go ahead, but don't try to say its chocolate because the smell gives it away

    I'm just saying they are killing Ukes at 10:1. 51 thousand is a tragedy, but remember your boyfriends in Ukraine claimed they had killed 80,000 by the time of Putin's March 2022 rally at Luzhniki. That was later determined to be a lie. Sorry bullshit69, but I ain't interested in Ukronazi fairy tales as told by tofu farting fairies.

    Nonsense! Ukraine is winning, Ukrainian social media says so! Send money!!!!! Ideally, when sending money, please send a signed blank check and be sure to have a large bank account with no daily withdrawal limitations, but send that money!!!! A lack of funds and like any democracy, and you end on the hit list. You ask to audit that money, and you end up on the list, so remember send us money, its none of your business how its spent. Remember Ukrainian democracy is like bats, it needs darkness to survive

    From the very beginning of the Russian special operation, the Ukrainian army relied on Western weapons, since its own reserves did not allow fighting for a long time. Since February 2022, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have received more than 800 tanks from the allies alone. The Russian General Staff calculated the number of weapons and equipment transferred to Kyiv.

    According to data from an article by the head of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Igor Kostyukov, published in the magazine “Military Thought”, since February 2022, the countries of the collective West have transferred $132 billion worth of weapons to Ukraine, of which 63 are from the United States.

    As the admiral writes, NATO’s main task is to prolong the conflict in Ukraine in order to inflict as much damage on Russia as possible. In total, the Ukrainian army received about 800 tanks of Soviet and Western production, more than 3.5 thousand armored combat vehicles, about 1.5 thousand artillery pieces, about 270 MLRS, more than 250 anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM), 7.7 thousand portable Air defense systems, up to 290 thousand anti-tank weapons, 130 aircraft and helicopters, over 30 thousand UAVs.

    At the moment, the West is paying more attention to the supply of high-precision weapons to Ukraine , in particular Storm Shadow/SCALP-EG aircraft guided missiles, as well as ATACMS operational-tactical missiles. The main suppliers are the USA, Great Britain and France. Also, in the near future, Kyiv will receive American fourth-generation F-16 fighters from European countries.

    The provision of intelligence information to Ukraine from NATO countries should not be overlooked. The United States was especially successful in this, using not only military but also civilian satellites in Kyiv’s interests.
