The pictures sent by the soldiers were used to identify their location, the remote military base in occupied Melitopol. These details were then passed on to Ukraine’s military. It was only a matter of days before the group saw the base blown up by Ukrainian artillery, Knysh told FT.
this a stupid move by Putin and it keeps getting stupider all the time…
Kinda makes you wonder, eh?
Honestly, I haven’t given Ukraine a snowball’s chance in Hell. Oh, I have always wanted them to give the Russian bear a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, I just never thought it could happen.
Maybe I was wrong.
But I think there’s no question that an important tactic for Ukraine is to lob missiles into Russian territory and make them feel pain!
world we live in!
Killer robots with machine guns appear to be entering the battlefield, and this one seems as if it was “WALL-E” that went to war.
quite clear that the Russian offensive didn’t go as planned. Yeah, a battle plan rarely survives first contact. The other side has a say in what will happen…
But, I think theRussians are doing FAR better, strategically, than we think. I just think the resources of Mother Russia will eventually overwhelm the scrappy Ukrainians. Now granted, there likely won’t be much left, then. But Russia wants the strategic territory, not the buildings!
Generals are getting kind of scarce in the Ukraine!
Now don’t get me wrong–I think that Russia eventually “wins” this conflict (though I dearly hope that I am wrong). Still, Russian losses have been heavy, and the country has been exposed as a paper tiger with nukes.
They have a glass jaw, and are weak at the beginning. But they are tenacious, and if you let them stick around for a bit, that glass jaw turns to iron…
War is not a nice thing…
Ukraine is winning?
You fool. You MSM victim.
Glimmers of hope. But they will soon be crushed out.
you wonder, eh?
In his Monday speech, Wallace said Russian vehicles “are frequently found with 1980s paper maps of Ukraine in them” and that soldiers were using “pine logs as makeshift protection on logistical trucks” and attaching “overhead ‘cope cages’ to their tanks.”
I think probably the biggest casualty in this war is Russia’s military reputation. They seem to be a paper tiger with nukes. The nukes probably work. At least much of the time. Probably.
“The saying always was that Russia has a large, modern army. We discovered that the modern part isn’t very large and the large part isn’t very modern. And the large part is increasingly getting smaller,” Crump said.
Look, I don’t doubt for a second that the Russians can militarily take parts of Ukraine. But not Kyiv…
But something is going on!
