The military situation is amazing for Ukraine. Nothing has changed and nothing is likely to change for Russia. The Russian war machinery us being ground to the ground, and the crippling sanctions are destroying the Russian economy beyond repair. Russia has taken a an enormous military, political and economic cost for a territory that is less than 0.001% of the area of the Russian federation and is virtually worthless at the moment, a financial drain on the Russian state. No matter how Vladimir”weak bladder but strong will” narcissistic napoleon conqueror of Ukraine and Novorossia Poutine wands to spin this as a victory, the invasion has been the worst political decision since Stalin decided to murder his generals back in 1939. But hey, Putin is murdering his generals too, sending them to die in battle! The disgrace on the face of the Russian military will never be erased in a century.

Homos are the best. They dont make children like You.

Banderites are a hostile agressive invention by collpased Staling and USSR.

Homos only make dumb stinky turds like your from their assholes.

Jasonovich

Banderas Nazi’s are Freedom Fighters, who murdered over 100K ethnic Poles, Jews and Russians! You certainly raised the bar for the most idiotic comment, please pass over the joint, cheers.

Russia needs just more time to take down all the Ukrainian jets. Then they will start the real special operation.

You are such an arsehole.

You need a brain repair !!! You better worry about your western ass going cold and hungry very soon !! Russia has diverted its economy out of reach of the shitfaced NATO puppets in EU, ruble has never been stronger and Russia is virtually self sufficient !! Now stop dreaming and wishing things that not even Santa Class can help you with !!

I’ve been reading a lot of comments and whether people are for or against Russia it’s always the same response which is the advance is too slow. Would somebody please tell me where this idea of a fast war came from? Open any history book and you will notice wars take years. How long do you think the thirty years war was? You don’t think the Russian high command ever looked into military history before this started. This β€œThe war will be over by Christmas” stuff is newspaper propaganda for the dim masses.

Here are a couple of numbers. Putin’s personal approval rating went from around 60% before the war to around 80% today. Joe Biden would lose to Trump by 10% if the election was held today. The Euro bought 86 Rubles before the war it buys 68 Rubles today. A 30% increase for the Ruble against the Euro in two and a half months. The price of a barrel of oil was $90 before the war its $108 today. Natural Gas was $4.50 before the War its $8.75 today. Before the war the only currency you could buy oil in was dollars now it is Dollars, Rubles and Yuan(Saudi Arabia) With those prices and flexibility the Russians can sell half the oil and still earn the same amount.

Tactically any men and materiel the Western world ships has to move 600 miles without air cover to get to the front. The West has spent at least $60 billion so far. The West has supplied so many weapons some of their stocks are below requirements for their own defense. The Russians can re-supply in the field (come on gamers just loot the bodies) The RU an UKR forces use the same gear and eat the same chow, drink the same vodka and probably listen to the same music. To top that off I’m sure the Russians are defended in depth and are happy to receive any assault.

The Donbass and Luhansk are used to being at war. They have been for 8 years now and this is the best its been for them yet. With the Russians there they have a chance at more than a stalemate they have a chance to win.The average Russian feels personally attacked by the loss of their treasury to thievery. China, India, Brazil and the rest of the G20 saw that happen too. A story or two in Pravda about a Russian 2nd grader immigrant in a UK or US school being bullied and beat up and the Russian people rally to their new purpose.

I think the country currently happiest for a slow war is Russia. What’s that thing the Russian minister of defense keeps saying? β€œSo far the special operation is going according to plan.”

Holms Jen

One thing is for a war to be fast. Completely different thing is when your army is being killed for two months, and made exact 0% of advancements. That is the first thing.

Second, the idea of fast wars comes from war on iraq, where USA completely obliterated whole iraq in few months, having 100% control of the ground [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2003_invasion_of_Iraq] But people mistaken Russian army for a global force such is USA. So they thought, you know, that in two months at least one new city would fall. Or at least more than 0% advancements.

Wars of attrition are not fast. They tend to be effective.

Land war doctrine of the Russians was well honed during and after WW II.

Where did you go to War College?

Holms Jen

This is not a war of attrition. First it can’t be, because NATO and US can supply and train Ukraine indefinetely. Second, even if some force stopped NATO from supplying Ukraine, the losses that Russians are dealing to Ukraine are so small on the monthly basis, that in two months Ukraine lost around 1% – 2% of infantry it uses in this war, which is professional personnel + conscripts. Its tanks, artillery and armor will be replenished 100% and already is. On the other hand, Russia lost thousands of armor pieces, and is in great trouble manufacturing new ones, so the only one being weared down at the moment is Russia.

Russia is kicking Ukies asses all over town. Ukies need foreign fighters to help them-they are all losing their heads and limbs. at least russia is burying the dead bodies. USA only fights people in sandals and robes who have no real army. Like Iraq and Afghanistan. Its easier for the the scumbag jews that way. israel controls usa pretty much. But soon Israels nuclear power plants and nuclear facilities will be destroyed. That will leave evaporate them.

First – you can really see how it is the same people posting under multiple names by the english mistakes they do.

Second: Ukraine lost 10% of its area, half of its gdp, and a large chunk of their people (not that they care about of those).

Third: hardly worthless. Taking Kherson alone saved Russia from spending billions spending dessalination plants for Crimea.

Holms Jen

Ukraine lost that 10% before Russia even invaded, you probably heard about separatist territories in the southeast right? Russia just added 1% to that by taking Mariupol. And that 10% of Ukraine were taken by Givi and Motorola command, those guys are better commanders than all putins generals combined than squared.

West can rebuild Ukraine and make its GDP back to its pre-war state in a few years after the war, meanwhile, Russia will lose most of its soldiers, nearly all armor, and be humiliated like never in its own history. Not to talk about Russian GDP which would be below Poland’s.

And no, don’t even mention Ruble’s strength, the only reason the Ruble is rising is that Putin made it illegal to exchange the Ruble into another currency on the Russian territory, it’s fake and artificial.

Ilya

Russia doesn’t have even 20% of its combat ready soldiers in Ukraine at the moment, how can it lose “most of its soldiers”? And that is exactly the problem.

No, it is you who has never opened a map in your life. The occupied post war territory is more than double than what DPR and LPR were.

YourCommunistGrandpa

Maybe you did not notice: 1). Ukraine was a looted near failed state before this operation began. It’s economy was near collapse, thanks largely to the neoliberal looting ushered-in by the USATO coup . 2). The American people, overwhelmingly, respond to their pocketbooks. Whatever mix of economic stress & realization of manipulation it may be, the disinformation operation on their minds is already beginning to fail to the extent of begetting desperate acts of censorship & Orwellian sounding initiatives. As inflation & the cost of living rises on top of the damage done by the Covid fiasco, no amount of propaganda will contain their rageβ€” against their gov, the virtue signaling Ukraine merch crowd, & the Ukrainian moochers, themselves (& that’s how Zelensky is already being described, despite his puppet status- an entitled foreign moocher).

This is not a video game, wars can go on for years. How old r u 12 ?

RECAP OF RUSSIA”S “SPECIAL MILITARY OPERATION”

Phase 1:

All objectives of the Russia Armed Forces were met with Phase 1

Fact: Many people think that Russia failed at taking Kiev but what people do not understand is that they had no plan to attack or take kiev.

The fast operation of moving into place around Kiev was to give the perception to Ukraine and NATO that Russia wanted to take the city.

This was nothing more than a β€œhead fake” by Russia to prevent Ukraine from sending thousands of troops from Kiev to the Donbass front (Russia’s stated objective) Russia was successful in this goal.

This is the reason you saw no long Russian supply lines and support, because they were only there to cause a diversion and therefore did not need a huge logistics support chain. Thus all the claims of the media that Russia would run out of fuel and ammo…fact is…they did not need it, as they were but a short term diversion.

Once Russia had their forces in place in the east and the south the forces in the Kiev area quickly withdrew according to plan, to support the actions in Mariupol where the AZOV regiment was 14,000 strong. (now only 1,000 remain surrounded and underground)

After the capture of Mariupol by Russia the Z forces moved to the Donbass front in preparation for phase 2.

Phase 2:

Phase 2 is going very well and is right on scheduled.

The Russian forces are destroying all supply lines for the estimated 45,000 Ukrainian troops on the Donbass line. As well as hitting ammo storage, fuel supply and command centers all over Ukraine.

The Russian forces are decimating the Ukrainians with artillery and rocket fire around the clock. The losses of the Ukrainians is listed to be near 50,000 troops killed so far during the operation.

Also there are 4,000+ Ukrainian POWs being held by the DPR, LPR and Russia at this time. The Russians put out a troop loss total last month and the number was at 5,700 at that time but is estimated to be near 7,500 currently.

Also the reason the US and NATO are in a panic to get tanks, artillery and planes into Ukraine is because the Russians have destroyed most of their military hardware.

Those numbers of destroyed Ukrainian equipment are as follows:

146 aircraft 112 helicopters, 712 unmanned aerial vehicles, 287 anti-aircraft missile systems, 2,817 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 323 multiple launch rocket systems, 1,292 field artillery and mortars, 2,624 units of special military vehicles

The bottom line is Russia is holding right to the plan and the plan is going well.

The longer it gets the more time Russia can shoot at Ukraine , the more dead Ukronnazis, the more destroyed factorys, the more destoyed Ukraine economy. I hope the kill Ukronazis for Years to come and destroy every bit and inch of Ukraine Soil for months and Years and destoys every working factory and depot and railway and shoping center and airport. Every premature stop of the war and the chance to destroy shoping center and infrastuctre in Lvov is reduced. So please to god that tis war takes more time fpr more systematically Ukrainski desctuction, till Lvov is reached and cleaned up. The more time, the more Dead Ukronazis.

Russia din’t even declared a war yet.

All that destruction of Ukraine is for Russia like handling terrorist issue.

In case of Russia declares real war Ukraine is a hadfull of ash in few hours time.

Zelensky is in Poland, has ben for quite some time. He moved there to avoid a Kalibre missile on his HQ in Kiev. [Any missile strike on Pooland would be an attack on HATO]. Pelosi’s vist etc are all shot in Pooland. Zelensky may be an idiot but he is not a fool and sits where he gets protection. When this all washes out, he wil move with his family to the UK and all the money laundered into his O/S bank account. I read that 99.2% of the funds allocated by the Central Bank for the Ukie Army is gone! I wonder where??

I also want to know. Open source maps show Russia losing ground day by day. What supprise me most is Ukraine propaganda in social media is kinda of in silent mode. I really want to see USA lose because they setup this proxy war to test their wepons by killing innocent people in both sides.

Pitaval

Putin has invaded Ukraine, but the US is to blame, that sounds very logical, isn’t it?

User

Yeah it’s logical because USA admitted openly they want to weaken Russia. Another thing is USA military industry is blooming beacuse of this war. They are just using this war to test all of their wepons. USA is quite popular for doing these kind of things all over the world. They create conflict and then enjoy benefits. That what they always do.

Pitaval

The war was created and started by Putin, who invaded Ukraine despite falsely claiming that he doesn’t plan to do anything like that a few hours before the attack. But in Putin’s followers logic, the US is to blame. Really funny logic.

The Russians were not pushed back, they withdrew themselves. Ukrainians entered an empty village.

No, a lover of toilet McDonalds, there were just LNR reservists there. Make no mistake, there was an offensive in other places.

Putin bitches tears taste like heaven

Where are they though? Where is the highly antecipated phase two offensive? Where is the cauldron? UAF was already destroyed and pinned in phase one remember? No fuel, completely cut off, no air defenses no air force… Where is this big offensive? Show me your map because Southfront must be getting really bad information

Holms Jen

There are no offensives in other places, and the Russian army is barely keeping its current positions, on the territories that were taken from Ukraine even before Russia invaded. Russia advanced 0%, compare maps from the SouthFront itself and see.

The huge NATO is so cowardly that it is afraid to help Ukraine! Ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Lol where wtf. Maybe there was an attempt of offensive, but as usual, the attempt would be deflected by Ukraine, and just more videos of burning Russian armor would flood the interent.

No Popasna for the Putin cockroaches. That’s the latest update. They failed to capture it once again. It actually strengthened the Ukranian forces’ position since it exposed Russia’s vulnerability in securing a safe route between Crimea and Donetsk. Both regions can be easily cut off.

So you are saying there won’t be a draft and general conscription?

Holms Jen

But they will serve the military as civilians. Yes, it is either full mobilization or Russia can go home. Losing Crima and Belgorod tho. Don’t worry Andrey, they won’t send you to the front. reservists will be placed instead of pro soldiers, that would be transported to Ukraine.

Holms Jen

Well, that is the only way Russia can start advancing. Even the Pentagon says so. Russia needs all of its military force, on the Ukrainian ground, and reservists to take their positions on the Russian territory.

Did the Russians really shoot down 3 Ukrainian planes today? If I add up all the Ukrainian planes that the Russians claim to have shot them down so far, I come to the conclusion that Ukraine must have had more fighter jets than all the NATO countries combined.

Will you provide links to the official statements of the Russian Defense Ministry on the number of aircraft that you counted?

I can’t take your word for it.

Ilya

Ukraine airforces had about 170 combat aircraft before the war according to wikipedia and Russia shot about 145 last time I saw.

That would be 25 left, which is about the size of the Azerbaijan Air Force, for example. Small, but hardly non existent.

DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS

The dirty little secret in this war is that there is a reason the Russian axis is advancing only 2 to 3 km per day.

They are destroying over 1000 Ukrainian troops, 100s of pieces of military equipment and up to a billion dollars in infrastructure, every day. Seven days a week and 30 days a month, and every month, until DEATH INSURANCE CALLS THE CLOWN OF KIEV.

Things look really, really bad in North America and Europe with the political left looking to collapse and be routed in the up coming midterms. Stocks collapsed today a thousand points and diesel ⛽️ gas prices are going to increase again. Looks like inflation is out of control and economies are headed for the worst depression in a hundred years. You want to still blame Russia πŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί and Putin for your problems? Sounds like you haven’t looked at your own backyard at all. England is in a state of political and economic implosion and diverting attention on to to Russia, like the USA. Europe seems to to completely forgotten World War I and ii??? Has zero resources and has picked a fight with Russia to try and decide their resources amongst themselves and the US .

Bandera wasn’t anything to do with Russia or the USSR? Steven Bandera was a Nazi of the worst kind from Ukraine πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦. Holyshit man get some facts man.. He collaborated with the Nazis and went on massive extermination sprees through Ukraine. The Germans were never interested in him or Ukraine, just; as the US and CIA aren’t interested. Except for war against Russia and being used, as Canon fodder. Even us from North America can see what’s happening there. There will be no Ukraine, because Ukrainian Nazis were murdering and exterminating Russian Ukrainians. Even I can figure this one out. What happened in Syria, Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lybia, etc… You think your country any special till they are finished with it.
