    Good news from the Republics….. terrorist forces attacking civilians shown why it’s a bad idea and their fancy US toy destroyed makes it even better.

  • Dr. Pro Liv

    So U.S. super expensive $250 000 crap “Javelin” didn’t help I guess….

    Where are those anti-Russian bots with usual “Russia is guilty of everything” drivel?

    • FlorianGeyer

      They are having a briefing from the CIA Chief of Stupidity I think.

    • JustPassingThrough

      “Javelin”?
      all been sold on the dark web. lol

      • Dr. Pro Liv

        I guess they have appeared on the dark web sale…. before even unpacked…

    • BMWA1

      Check EBAY.

    • Pavel Pavlovich

      What do you use this ATGM against? The DPR and LPR forces were forced to withdraw them, but even so, Ukronazis are tripping over their own shoelaces.

  • Serious

    That’s US “democracy” : remove the president who didn’t kill his people to replace by those who bomb them.

  • Serious

    Russia should have entered east Ukraine to help them.

      Why?

      This article, by Dmitry Orlov, explains the reasoning perfectly.

      The US Outspends Russia 10X On Military, But They Are Equals. Why?
      Another brilliant essay from Orlov in which he addresses the incredible bumbling incompetence of the US in contrast to Russia’s intelligent competence – Orlov is spot on…. https://russia-insider.com/en/politics/thousand-balls-flame/ri16139

        I dont think they are equals, quality wise. Not in hardware, not also in man power.

        Short version Russians if they go to war they will go for their motherland and for Putin.

        Western people if they go to war they go for the salary and because they are scared not to obey orders. I am sure if word goes to the nato soldiers that they going to war against russia you see many suicides among them and also AWOL, and Mexico will have thousands of recruits, as Canada had once during Vietnam war.

          It’s about logistics. U.$. has to maintain 800+ military bases around the world. Russia does not (only 4 from memory). And all Russia’s bases are within ‘fast response’ zones (one hop in the logistics chain.) The U.$. has a massive supply chain to consider (which is one of the reasons they ‘lost’ a ‘trillion’ dollars in their logistics department.)

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            Not for long. Soon either they go where they come from or will be buried where they stand.

            And no that is not the reason they lost not one trillion but many in a black hole. But that is another story and not of interest to me.

          “Short version Russians if they go to war they will go for their motherland and for Putin”

          LoL. At least Russia is a country where “going to war for the president” coincides with “going to war with the motherland”, which kinda makes the “president” part redundant.

          Can’t say the same for other countries, where soldiers go to war for international finance and wall street.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            When people accept you as a leader because you proven yourself then yes you become in their mind synonymous with the motherland they assign you to protect and any cost, and will follow you and support you.

            Personal expiriense.

          • John Whitehot

            i don’t fall for these tricks.

            to resume:

            Your previous comment sounded like it was written by the new york fucking times.

            Then you turned.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            get of what ever drugs you using kid. and f*ck off. NY times your a*s.

            hahahaharrr

      They have been in eastern Ukraine for some time now. How else could the DPR / LPR have defeated the Ukrainian army to date? Everyone knows it was Russian troops & direct fire support that won several major battles, which forced the Ukrainians to seek a ceasefire, followed by the Minsk agreements.

      • Java Ape Timelord

        This is just MSM propaganda.

        • Ariel Cohen

          Do you really think a small group of separatists in the DPR and LPR could inflict severe defeats on the Ukrainian army like what happened in Debaltsevo? That was Russian “green men” using their vastly superior equipment, technology and training to wipe out complete columns of Ukronazi forces . .

          • Java Ape Timelord

            lol, are you seriously saying “small group of separatists”? The number was large as they were defending their families, property and lives of their friends against a criminal Kiev mob.

            Do not forget the large number of Ukrainian military who defected and took their weapons with them.

  • Georgia tried during Olympiad and did not go well for them .. let’s if the Ukrainian try the same path during world cup.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      I believe that is their,UK/US, planning.

    • Trauma2000

      They WILL try during the World Cup. It is the ‘opportune’ time to do so; divert media attention from ‘war crimes’ being ‘committed against civilians.’ I hope the DPR forces are preparing for it. It WILL come. Just like in Georgia.

  • Neo Onh

    Time to liberate all of Novorossiya from the Kiev nazi junta! Liberate Novorossiya all the way from Charkov to Odessa!

  • Smaug

    Both Russia and NATO need to restrain their allies before this blows up in everyone’s face again…

    • Ariel Cohen

      The DPR and LPR separatists are not trying to attack and invade the Ukrainian lands. It is the Ukrainian military that is trying to invade the DPR and LPR areas of control. These are areas that were covered by the Minsk agreements and there was supposed to be a buffer zone there, which the Ukronazis have just crossed. Are the separatists supposed to just lie down and allow the army free entry? There would be many repeats of the Odessa massacre . .

      • Smaug

        That’s like saying either Eretria nor Ethiopia have no aggressive intentions for each other. This state of war continues because it already exists and peoples reactions to the conflict only serve to continue the conflict. For instance, you are inciting the Dombassers to take aggressive actions, albeit in reaction to other side’s actions. This is the behavior that can build up and create a social phenomena known as war.

        • Ariel Cohen

          You need to watch this, in its entirety, as it describes the background to the war and the injustices that were bought and paid for by outside powers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-Jme77Dfc4 If no one ever fights against an injustice, but just lays blame equally on all sides, then a lot of injustice can happen in the world.

          • Smaug

            It is obvious from the title that is at the very least a one sided account, I haven’t watched it. I am familiar with the war, I’ve read considerably because at first I was bewildered by the nature of the war and my opinions have changed over time. Don’t assume that if someone disagrees with you that they are ignorant or malicious.

          • Ariel Cohen

            It is fairly one-sided, as you say and the separatists are definitely not angels. But it does expose the hypocrisy of the supra-regional players involved. For instance, they amputated Kosovo from Serbia (by NATO military force), because the Kosovars didn’t want to be a part of the then Serbia, but they will not allow the DPR and LPR to do the same. It’s all politics and part of the East vs West proxy struggle . .
