      Rather. This war is being waged in such a strange way that only a powerful and decisive blow to defeat the army of Ukraine will dispel doubts about the adequacy of what is happening.

        The special operation is carried out by the limited forces of the Russian army... the battle for Donbass is just a local military operation.
        Not enough strongmen were introduced to Ukraine for a full-fledged war.
        We are fighting, one might say, with a small part of the Russian army ... hence the limited successes.
        At such a pace of warfare, the operation will stretch for many months ... in a couple of weeks the green light will go ... a guerrilla-sabotage war will begin ... is our army ready for such a turn of events?

          I don’t understand this either, but we don’t need to keep large forces, for example, somewhere in the Far East, why such a limited contingent and the use of force?

            You know, colleague, I'm from Sakhalin (you can spit as far as Japan) and when one of the nights something jet flew over the city, it was, to put it mildly, not comfortable :) and somehow I couldn't sleep. They calmed down with the thought that they were preparing for the parade.

                  Hi hi I was there twice on a business trip, at the outpost ... They set up a radar station there. Delivered both by helicopter and by car through the pass. Was at the outposts from Moskalvo to Crillon. I live in Kholmsk.

                    Hey. hi Well, I was there as part of a group of jeepers, who used to traditionally make a run on May 9 with the laying of wreaths there. Then, when activity began there, they first threw in a helicopter and your brother was very surprised to see wheeled vehicles there “how are you, we were told that there is no road here?” Well, then, yes, already through the pass, as I understand it, they began to ride.

                      I was on Crillon back in the 80s and on ZIL by sea and through the pass ... Then the jeepers began to master the route ... There were outposts in Shebunino, Crossroads, Kraynaya and we equipped the PTN on the Kuznetsova metro station ... Now nothing of this No...

          This is obvious, but if you do not fight fully with those who fight against you fully and fiercely, then you can lose. And the defeat or even the implicit victory of Russia against the obviously less powerful Ukraine means the end of any claims to the Great Power and leaving the geopolitical map as one of the players.
          And then, if the matter is not brought to the end and is limited to the Donbass, then any peace will only be a postponement of a new war. Wars with an even more armed Ukraine, even more motivated and Nazified than it is now.

            Vooot, exactly ... We all understand this, but does the leadership of the Russian Federation understand it so clearly? Either Medinsky is talking some nonsense, then Peskov Urgant writes down patriots

          And why didn't the General Staff properly prepare for such a war in advance? In 2014, they did not dare, but now they did, but with insufficient forces and did not take into account many nuances, they underestimated the tactics and strength of the enemy’s resistance, the aircraft were not equipped enough, there were no sights, there were no rigid hitches for evacuating equipment, there were very few UAVs. And this is when planning an operation in a neighboring state, with a huge border, knowledge of all strategic places since the days of the USSR. What is it called anyway?

            Did you personally check the equipment? Why are there not enough sights? What did you drag a rigid hitch to, for a bunch of words? And of course, all Ukrainian soldiers are sitting in nuclear bunkers about which
            we know since the days of the USSR

          Do you think we have an army of many millions? Mobilization is not carried out, ground forces, infantry, paratroopers, marines, etc., there will be 400 kilos in total. I count contract soldiers.

          Well, the answer suggests itself. No, not ready. Zelenka is an ambush on the path of troops, this is a natural disguise.

    Why was it impossible to act consistently and not start with the complete liberation of the DNR and LNR? In general, just like with Crimea, this should have been done back in 2014. Then we could get by with a little blood.

      In 2014, the Russian economy was not fully prepared for the sanctions.
      Of the two options, the complete demolition of the Nazis in Ukraine was chosen, and rightly so ... half measures, of course, are always worse ... you always need to bring things to the end so as not to sit in a puddle.

        To demolish them, you need to wage a full-fledged war. With the mobilization of everything. People, the economy, management. I see so far only organizational measures in the economy

        Haven't sanctions been introduced for Crimea? It seems that if then the Russian Federation, along with the Crimea, would have taken the Donbass, it would have been easier.

      At least it was not necessary to order the volunteers from Donbass to leave. But then many helped the militias. There were also Spaniards who immediately said: "The Nazis came to power in you. Once the USSR helped us, And now we will help you." There were also Russian-speaking Germans, and of course, Russians. And the Ukrainian army was not ready for such resistance. It was possible to do a lot of things, so they were led to Minsk-1, then Minsk-2. What to say now. as Chernomyrdin said, "we wanted the best, it turned out as always."

    RIA News.
    ▪️The RF Armed Forces offer units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and mercenaries from 06.00 Moscow time on April 5 to lay down their arms, leave Mariupol for territories controlled by Kiev, the Defense Ministry said
    ▪️The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation stated that all those who laid down their arms in Mariupol are guaranteed the preservation of life, it is proposed to announce a “complete silence regime” from 9.30 Moscow time. Both sides must raise flags: from the Russian side - red, from the Ukrainian side - white along the entire line of contact.
    I refuse to understand it. According to reports from Mariupol - Ukrainians have practically lost artillery or ammunition for it. Whole battalions are already starting to surrender. And suddenly this. In other words, you are tired, here is a corridor for you, they will heal you, rearm you and you will again be able to kill Russian soldiers. So what?
    Yes, and who are released, those who covered themselves with people, like a human shield. One can only hope that all this does not concern Azov.
    Who actually wages war like that? This is not humanism, this is stupidity, for which the lives of Russian soldiers will still be paid.

      Strange and ridiculous decisions are being made by some of our politicians about the operation in Ukraine, all these negotiations, discussing peaceful corridors for the Nazis to get out of the boilers, and all this instead of crushing the vile Nazi bastards who stubbornly refuse to lay down their arms and surrender, we again we are trying to show some kind of unthinkable and absolutely inappropriate in this situation humanism, why do this, it is not clear what it is, stupidity, betrayal, or something else, it all looks very strange and ridiculous.

    Not so long ago, General Rudskoy said that the option of squeezing the Armed Forces of Ukraine out of the Donbass was rejected, because the Armed Forces would be constantly fed from the south and west, and we would get a line of constant tension. Now it looks like we're back to the rejected option. What changed? Kyiv promised not to attack? Or is it completely devoid of the ability to resist? Or what? Of course, they will not tell us, they will be limited to the usual "everything is going according to plan." As we started without a king in our heads, we continue.

    First, they show the atrocities and the murder of our prisoners, they tell how the Armed Forces of Ukraine hide behind civilians and shoot them because of the water. And now they are talking about the surrender of as many as 250 marines. And why take such scumbags prisoner? And forgot. Now they are kissed in the op and released on receipt !!
