NATO vs. Russia: dragon vs. hydra

NATO vs. Russia: dragon vs. hydra

Now, when everyone has begun to calm down a little, it is possible to sort out what happened in Ukraine on the shelves and model certain forecasts.


Retreat


So, the Kupyan-Izyum retreat (although I would call it a flight) took place. And, since we can only accept it as a fact, it is worth paying less attention to the prerequisites and looking more into the future. So that, say, the Kherson-Donetsk retreat operation does not happen.

There are claims to the terms. A retreat is when the troops withdraw according to a pre-agreed plan, perhaps holding the enemy back in rearguard battles and so on. Judging by how much equipment was abandoned, and even the Ukrainians were stunned by the amount of “donated” (in four videos in the TG, I counted 14 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles, 4 self-propelled guns, 1 "Zoo"), it does not look very much like a planned retreat.



There are questions. Of course, it would be worth asking those tankers who abandoned their tanks. Well, the equipment was clearly abandoned due to lack of fuel. Why didn't they blow it up? Why didn't they blow up the ammunition depots in Balakliya? But these questions are the subject of separate consideration.

What can be said about the Armed Forces? NATO instructors have good students.


I belong to that part of the critically minded who believe that men in cartoons are at the tactical tables, and the ukrovoyaks have the second, if not the third, word at the meeting. But the combat units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where there is still a (need to work, yes) a high percentage of fighters who have good combat training, and besides, trained in the UK and other quiet places, fighters turned out to be quite combat-ready, and morale is generally beyond praise.

Pro fighting spirit is not just to praise. Many military correspondents note the tenacity with which the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine go on the attack, despite the losses. This is serious. And now, after the Kupyansko-Izyum victory, I suspect that this fighting spirit will have to be knocked out for quite a long time.

This is a downside for us. And let there lie the inability of our generals to correctly assess the operational situation. It's strange, but let it be on the same scale: Ukrainian fighters who know how to fight, foreign instructors who know how to teach and lead, and Russian generals who don't know how to do a lot of things.

Here are the three main components of Ukrainian success. Plus intelligence, which is provided by the American satellite constellation, AWACS aircraft and a cloud of drones. Our side seemed to see that the enemy was assembling a shock fist, but, apparently, lulled by the “successes” in the destruction of the Armed Forces of Ukraine performed by Konashenkov, they simply did not pay attention to it. The Supreme High Command, the Minister of Defense and the Head of the General Staff went to the Far East to watch how the exercises were going there, and this is where the Ukrainians betrayed.

Let me remind you how the Armed Forces of Ukraine acted near Kherson. This is useful, we discussed behind the scenes with fellow colonels and lieutenant colonels, it turned out that at that time the Armed Forces of Ukraine worked purely according to the methods inherited from the USSR. Well, the colonels with academic education told us so.

Near Kherson, everything was textbook: artillery treatment of the front edge, attempts to depict something aviation (here, yes, our air defense said: “Go ...”), tank strike groups, supported by large infantry forces (in fact, they worked just BTG) tried to push through the defense between clearly identified strongholds, broke through it, armored infantry went into the gap, further " stop”, consolidated and began to look for new weak points in order to hit there with tanks.

Familiar? Of course. To anyone who took the BUSV in their hands, not for a superficial acquaintance. The fact that Ukrainians and Russians acted according to the same manuals led to the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kherson.

The Russian army perfectly implemented the tactics of dragging armored vehicles under artillery and air strikes. It was possible to correctly realize the advantage in artillery and MLRS. The Armed Forces suffered significant losses.


And the “dizziness from success” began, or rather, a period of calm. The Ministry of Defense every day published horrific figures of the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Ukrainian side did not carry out any active actions, and on our side everyone calmed down.

And when intelligence began to report on the concentration of troops near Balakleya and Slavyansk, apparently, the headquarters of the Russian troops decided that the Ukrainians would act according to the same scenario. And the regrouping of our troops began in order to cover precisely the most tank-dangerous directions. That is why it is impossible to explain the presence of reservists from the LPR and units of the National Guard in the same Balakleya.

Alas, the APU were no longer the same. The guys from NATO did a great job. Obviously, it was not Ukrainian officers who led the operation. Tactics were used, something between the Donbass of the 2015 model and the actions of some US units in Iraq.

The main tactical maneuver was the control of the roads. No head-on attacks, no concentration of armored vehicles in shock groups. Mobile DRG strikes on communications, bypasses on wheels of strongholds, followed by the introduction of tanks into the breakthrough - and now a threat is being created to encircle an entire group of Russian troops in Izyum, while Russian military leaders were expecting strikes in completely different places.

What Konashenkov voiced as what “Russian troops were regrouped in the areas of Balakleya and Izyum to achieve the stated goals of a special military operation to liberate Donbass. During the transfer, diversion and demonstration activities were carried out with the designation of the real actions of the troops. In order to prevent damage to the Russian troops, a powerful fire defeat was inflicted on the enemy using aviation, missile forces and artillery., if you look at the footage of abandoned Russian equipment, it still looks more like an escape.

But what is the difference between an organized retreat and an unorganized one, we decided to cover it separately with our tank expert, Lieutenant Colonel Kuznetsov.

In general, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have demonstrated that, under the guidance of NATO instructors, their soldiers are capable of good maneuverability. The Russian side completely “overslept” the beginning of events, which ultimately resulted in the hasty abandonment of large territories both in terms of area and population.

As far as we understand, there were no reserve lines for withdrawal, there were no spare strongholds and no reserve for heavy equipment either. Only on the third day did something more or less meaningful begin: preparation of withdrawal lines (often on the Russian-Ukrainian border), defense on Oskol, distracting counterattacks in other sectors of the front.

Yes, it was a small consolation to read the reports of the fighters of the LPR and Kadyrov's soldiers about the systematic progress forward. Artillery attacks on the advancing units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, rocket strikes began.

Who is to blame for the three days of disgrace to the Russian army is again a separate conversation. A common mistake, from the lieutenant, who abandoned his tanks near Izyum, to the chief of the General Staff, who went to the other end of the country to lead the exercises. It is clear that switchmen will be appointed, there is no doubt about that. But is it really necessary?

First of all, we need to understand that the situation has changed, and it has changed not in our favor. NATO officers who direct the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine know how to lead, moreover, lead quickly. It has been noticed that very often VKS and artillery strikes on the enemy are frankly late and do not bring proper results.

Terror


On the courage of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, of course, they will try to develop success. They already promise to "beat the enemy on his territory," which means like artillery strikes on the settlements of the Kursk and Belgorod regions. I don’t even want to think about the railway (the same one), the Kantemirovka-Chertkovo stretch. Plus DRGs, which will most likely be sent to Russian territory.

Of course, it is easier to carry out terror on the Russian side than to guard and defend. However, if it starts, it won't be tomorrow. The Russian army has time to move the Armed Forces back, away from the border, beyond the range of artillery and MLRS, thereby securing Russian settlements.

You still have to do it.

I have repeatedly asked myself the question of the illogical behavior of the Ukrainian military, who the next day after leaving the settlement begin to shell it. Kind people on the other side explained: the Armed Forces of Ukraine today have an unofficial slogan "Will or death!". That is, "Freedom or death", if in our opinion. The slogan of the anarchists and detachments of Nestor Ivanovich Makhno. Naturally, with Ukrainian modern adjustments.

The adjustments are that if so, then the alignment is as follows: in the event of a threat of occupation of the settlement by the aggressor army (it is clear that the Russian one), all law-abiding citizens of Ukraine are required to evacuate. All relevant structures should (in theory) ensure the evacuation of citizens, help, supply and all that.

It is clear that in reality this does not always happen, not everyone wants to leave. For various reasons, but do not want to. Accordingly, these people become suspected of treason, which means that they can be fired upon with artillery and mortars.

And if one of the servicemen, for one reason or another, does not want to carry out an order to launch an artillery strike on a populated area, then ... You probably don’t need to explain. In this case, the SBU is one of the best scenarios, because the veterans of the ATO, who are now in command positions at the lower level in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, can put a bullet in the back of the head.

In terbats, of course, there are no moral problems.

So the Ukrainian military will shoot at our cities. Who for what reasons, but will. Therefore, it will be necessary to move the front line to the west from the Belgorod and Kursk regions, where, by the way, shelling continues.

We'll have to move the front line, we'll have to catch dashing lads from the DRG who want to make a fuss in the rear of the troops and on Russian territory, we'll have to categorically strengthen border security.

Now, probably, many will expect a conversation about mobilization. No, we won't talk about it. No more people needed. We need more missiles, more missiles and more missiles. It is possible and necessary to scoop out all the arsenals and use even the most ancient cruise missiles capable of operating in Ukrainian conditions. First of all, knock out the guidance radar and air defense systems. It is difficult, we need a decent satellite constellation, which we do not have.

On one Ukrainian projectile one hundred of ours should fly out. For one of their "Point" - twenty of our X-101 and ten "Caliber". Expensive but necessary.

How much we hollowed about the bridges across the Dnieper? What behind-the-scenes agreements prevent them from being destroyed and depriving the Armed Forces of Ukraine of the supply of everything? Yes, to hit substations, to deprive Ukrzaliznitsa of the opportunity to transport equipment and ammunition to the front.

And let's finish this snotty rhetoric about the need to save infrastructure in the interests of the people. After applying the "Solntsepekov" it looks so-so. It is necessary to destroy the enemy transport infrastructure everywhere and without the slightest doubt.

Then people in huge quantities will not be required. For mobilization in the performance of our military registration and enlistment offices will mean a surge in corruption and chaos.

Hydra multi-headed


People are a separate and complex issue. I compared the APU with the dragon. Three-headed. Actually, the Armed Forces of Ukraine, terbats and NATO. The third head behind the first two is hidden but present. Manages, as you can see, and not bad.

We are worse in this regard. Hydra is multi-headed. The Russian armed forces, the National Guard, parts of the LPR, parts of the DPR, moreover, there are official, and there are separate volunteer formations such as the Vostok battalion of Alexander Khodakovsky, there are Chechen volunteer formations and official forces of the Chechen Republic. There are Russian volunteers - "musicians".

It is clear that, in theory, representatives of the RF Armed Forces should steer, but how they sometimes do it - I understand those who are trying to gain maximum independence in decisions. I especially think so in the direction of the Donbass, which are head and shoulders above in tactics.

Of course, I want to win. And to win not on paper, in the joyful reports of the Ministry of Defense, in which (judging by the comments on the Internet) no one can believe for a penny, but in reality. Coming to Ukrainian cities, where we will be welcome, and not to leave. Do not abandon those who believe in Russia. Not to see pictures from the abandoned cities, where no less joyful residents pluck and carry Russian flags to the trash heaps and hoist Ukrainian flags back.

We had victories. But comparing the team of the underdogs of the Arab world in Syria and the toy army of Georgia and the Ukrainian one is stupid. It is foolish to underestimate the enemy.

"Know the enemy and know yourself: then in a thousand battles you will not be defeated". (Sun Tzu).

“Never despise your enemy, whatever he may be, and know him well weapon, his image to act and fight. Know what is his strength and what is the weakness of the enemy.. (Alexander Suvorov).

And here we have a lot of not only old Soviet weapons, there are Ukrainian modifications, and NATO sent new products. Plus, instead of the Ukrainian headquarters, NATO specialists are working, who surpass us in the level of awareness.

Intelligence is generally the weak point of the Russian army, as it turned out. It’s okay not to detect the movement of artillery and MLRS, to “look through” helicopters ... But not to see two reserve corps instead of one, and several thousand more mercenaries to them - this is very ugly. Apparently, there are problems with the agent network.

Today, the “comforter experts” are already starting to talk about the fact that Balakleya was “inconvenient” for defense, that the city is not so needed if you are not going to attack Kharkov, there will be many such speeches. They will tell you that everything that is happening is another cunning plan to draw the forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the fortified areas for subsequent destruction ... There will be more fairy tales.

The main story is this: it became clear back in April that there would be no easy victory. What will not be fast - in September. The question is about minimizing our losses, both among the military and among the civilian population. Secondly, it is especially important that civilians in the Kursk and Belgorod regions did not sign contracts with the Ministry of Defense and do not receive money for being at war.

So many destinies have already been crippled that the hair stands on end. And you should not increase this account further, to infinity.

What can be said in terms of the outcome?


In order to prevent it from being completely shameful to go on the defensive on the Ukrainian-Russian border and catch everything that flies through it, it is necessary to change the very approach to conducting the NWO. Without regard to the opinion of Europe, which supplies Ukraine with weapons and trains fighters.

Yes, we should not forget that the Spaniards, Germans, British train the Ukrainian military at their bases. And they are armed. And they give a few not what they declare. The Excaliburs were a very unpleasant surprise.

Therefore:
- bridges across the Dnieper must be destroyed;
- traction substations at junction railway stations, thermal power plants in cities should be destroyed;
- decision-making centers must be destroyed.

In addition, the maximum destruction of rolling stock (diesel locomotives) by all available means. There will be no railway - there will be no transportation of everything. Today in Ukraine there are no problems with fuel and delivery of military equipment. There must be global problems.

Pay special attention to counteracting foreign technical intelligence. In every possible way. It is very difficult to arrange a regrouping of troops if your every step is known to the enemy.

The Department of Defense should HEAR not their managers entertaining generals at exhibitions with Chinese DIY kits, but those who are fighting. Who lacks elementary things for war, like artillerymen - tablets for calculations, as spotters - drones, and so on.

The slogan "Everything for the front - everything for victory" is obligatory, first of all, for the Ministry of Defense and its managers, and not for other citizens of Russia.

If you believe the press service of the Ministry of Defense (honestly, I don’t believe it at all), the enemy is suffering huge losses. Reporting from the field speaks of stubborn battles and seems to confirm this, but one should clearly calculate the mobilization capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In fact, I communicate with my Ukrainian sources, there is no hysteria. They do not go home and are not sent to the front in handcuffs. Understanding the capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the configuration of combat-ready formations is very important.

Today, hospitals in many cities of Ukraine are overcrowded with the wounded. Did this affect the combat capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack? No. One must understand that NATO commanders absolutely do not care about the human resources of Ukraine. We understand this, sooner or later they will understand it there too. But it is very important for us to know the critical loss threshold for the APU.

It is also very important to understand that the commanders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are very pleased with the unhurried course of the NMD taken by our commanders. They have time to see everything, analyze and develop response moves. Given that there are no problems with equipment, NATO does not care about losses in manpower, the RF Armed Forces have obvious problems in losing momentum.

What the Armed Forces of Ukraine will get by advancing at such a pace and with such losses is not entirely clear to me personally. Blood-drenched territories that could easily be lost tomorrow - it is not entirely clear how this can be translated into success in the political arena. No, it is clear that "we are winning, give us money" is an option. Hannibal in such a situation, the Council of Carthage showed a fig.

Our political losses are simply enormous. They came, stood and fled - this is not something that wins the brains and souls of Ukrainians. The leadership of the army does not understand this, but this is generally a separate conversation. It turns out that we did not just deceive us with our departure. Yes, retreating in 1941, our ancestors promised to return and they were believed. Like today, it's hard for me to say.

I would like to return to these lands, I would like to return these people to Russia. But there are many difficulties in terms of faith and trust. How much will the Russians be trusted in this regard and believe in Russia. You can come back to empty lands. You can come to the lands where our people will live. And there may be an option when we really become occupiers in the eyes of the people who remain on their land, who will simply take revenge. In Ukraine, this is quite a normal option.

But in any case, the situation will have to be broken and changed. Not for the sake of Ukrainians, who trust Russia. For the sake of their own, to whom war may come tomorrow.

And with the hydra, too, you need to do something. Yes, something will grow in the place of one severed head. But it would be better if it grew smaller, and not "something", but what is needed.

    "We need to change the situation for the sake of our own, to whom war may come tomorrow ..." Yes, it has already come. Another town 30 km from the border was shelled, an electrical substation was destroyed, and a civilian was killed. https://rusvesna.su/news/1663281325

    And what, in the Moscow Region, when withdrawing troops from Kharkov, did they not know about this? Did the experience with "gestures of good will" in Sumy and Chernihiv teach you nothing? Or are these attacks on Russian territory proper perceived as uncritical, as some kind of "collateral damage"? In this case, who are the "friends" for the current government? Miller with Abramovich?

          The author indicated a completely rational reason for the defeat near Kharkov. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation used Soviet methods and expected the same from the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and those turned out to have modern Western developments in this regard, which were better suited for modern combat. It remains to be hoped that the General Staff will start writing new training manuals based on this situation.

            What a "modern battle" when the Armed Forces of Ukraine traveled 50 km and at this distance not a single unit blocked their movement! So they just weren't there. As Prilepin wrote, "no one but the chairman of the collective farm." Or was it written in Soviet methods that the chairman of the collective farm would definitely stop? They are still fighting with Soviet weapons, but the USSR still strives to kick! Did you also leave the north of the Kharkiv region according to Soviet methods, although the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not even attack there?

              And here to kick? Obviously, the techniques developed under the Soviet Union are outdated simply because time has passed. This in no way characterizes either the Union or these methods. And for 30 years, the RF Armed Forces did not have a serious enemy in combined arms combat that would force them to start a serious revision, and this is the result that is described in the author's quotes I cited.

                Well, I quote Prilepin in full, removing the obscene expression.

                "Here went analytics about the fact that
                British generals...
                American satellites...
                - Developed strategy...
                - great equipment...

                and everything else, everything else, everything else.

                All this is so.

                Just don't talk about one simple thing:
                - if we didn’t have a regiment (not a regiment) of reservists on the front line, hell knows how armed they were, but something more serious,
                - if we had at least someone in all those villages along the highway that "took" the Armed Forces of Ukraine so powerfully, except for the chairman of the collective farm;
                - if we had as many military personnel in our cities as they were on staff, and not how many from the world they collected by a thread - in the amount of "14 Panfilov's men", the rest on paper -

                In short, if we had stupid people, fighters, personnel -

                no satellites and British think tanks would have done anything.

                And all these centers and satellites recorded approximately one thing:

                THERE ARE PEOPLE - NO ..ME! ATTACK BEFORE THE ROTATION BEGINS!

                And, publishing tons of analytical articles, you no-no, and go back to this simple reality.

                Otherwise, the British generals themselves are going to be fucked up by their importance.

                Which they don't really have.

                        In any case, air strikes are unlikely to compensate for the almost complete lack of manpower. By the way, the "Western methodology" consisted precisely in saturating with shock units those sectors where the "Potemkin villages" were stationed by the RF Armed Forces.

            The Soviet army has been successfully guided by these "modern methods" since 1944 - its name is forward detachments. Then, with the advent of special forces and deep intelligence, the methods were improved. But why they came as a surprise to the "allied forces" when they wrote on all media resources about the use of ZSU mobile groups - this is a question ...

              The USSR waged a big war with the fronts and prepared for it, and its military thought naturally corresponded to this task. Of course, developments in this area can and should be used, but the basis should provide for the absence of a front as such.

                And so it was - after breaking through the lyria of the front, advanced detachments were sent deep into the enemy’s location to capture key points (most often bridges and crossings), disrupt communications, create wigs, etc.

          So they overslept because everyone is sitting posts writing to the cart, what else should they do. The main war is in the cart. There and the specialists all hang out. Some on NATO channels, others on ours. But in reality, these are materialized soaps of victories and defeats from the cart.

          This concept has been instilled into hysterics not for the first day. It is beautifully packaged in the mythical image of the Evil Empire, its Darkest Lord and his Host of Darkness. These three mythologemes represent the antipode of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The fatherland, the son who defended him, and his army - these are the main goals of the enemy in the information-psychological war. All the rest should be depicted as either victims, or blind servants of darkness, or bright-faced warriors who fight evil inside and out. his empire. The gradual forcing of these images in the media and the escalation of armed conflicts should cause in the masses a premonition of the End of the World, fears and panic moods, which will greatly facilitate the manipulation of large social groups and the transformation of the political structure of the “saved world”.
          This is how I see the informational scenario of controlled chaos.

          When the world, any army accumulates peacetime officers, I read. Such people keep good documentation, write beautiful reports that are liked by the electorate of politicians in power, they know how to speak the right speeches. But for a rapidly changing combat environment, as that article argued, these are not suitable. And those who don’t give a damn about all the installations and rules, whose faces are smeared with mud (you can’t even shoot this on camera) and who speak briefly and to the point, which is why they are not interesting to journalists, are suitable. In the course of participating in conflicts, such officers naturally force out the “peaceful people”. Therefore, the army must always fight somewhere with someone, constantly update its experience.

            I absolutely agree with you. There is also the opposite effect here. When a combat officer comes to serve in "peacetime", it is very difficult for him. After the Afghan (I went straight there from the school, I didn’t serve in the civilian army), I was infuriated by the demands to write plan notes, fill out journals, reports and all sorts of crap. As a commander of a reconnaissance company in the 106th orb, at first I saw the company only in the morning. Then he sent the commander of the platoons to classes, and he himself went to the office, write, write and write again. I even bought a typewriter. Enough for half a year, he went into the fields, with a company, with an overnight stay, for which he received in full upon arrival. The outline was not written that way, was not included in the plan, etc. Isaev also said that there is an army in peacetime and an army in war. The transition of a peaceful army to a military one is a very difficult process. No exercises will help 100%. Individual skill, yes, no army. Therefore, there is a combat soldier, an officer, a general, and there is a sandman and there is no getting away from this. A non-belligerent army decays.

      Z. Prilepin: “The Ukrainian side fired 10 rockets at Valuyki. There are dead.

      This is one of my favorite places in Russia, a beautiful town. At the beginning of the XNUMXth century it was a border fortress.

      Yeltsin brought Russia back to the XNUMXth century. It should be written in textbooks.

      There is a war going on. On any day, a capture of a Russian settlement can occur. In the most direct sense - capture. A breakthrough - and now soldiers with a "dead head" on chevrons walk around the town, swagger and take selfies.

      Please help shake our country. Please help stir up the ubiquitous "constructive dialogue" lobby.

      Valuyki is the same city as Moscow.

      Just imagine that 10 missiles fell on Moscow and tomorrow it can be attacked and captured.

      Well, it's exactly the same. Just one city on the "B" and the other on the "M".

The monster settled in swampy swamps, near the city of Lerna, which gave the monster its name. As the years passed, the monster became more and more "brutal" and terrified the locals. No matter how many glorious heroes tried to kill her, they only lost their lives. All her heads had poisonous breath, and the main head could even spit fire. Lernean hydra, guarding the gates to the kingdom of Hades (Greek hell) and leaving its lair only to get food.

      Betrayal began to let out tentacles even earlier, about 30 years before 1991 for sure. Otherwise, Gorbachev, Yeltsin would not have been able to make a career in the CPSU, rising to the highest positions. When the real prestige of working as a waiter in a restaurant and a seller in a grocery store exceeded the prestige of the professions of an engineer and a teacher, the country was already doomed. And this happened much earlier than Gorby with his restructuring.

    It is obvious that all this “SVO” is being carried out under strict political restrictions imposed on the military: you can’t hit Kyiv, you can’t hit bridges and critical infrastructure, you can’t hit Zelensky, you can’t hit the GUR and other “decision-making centers” either. Why not? Because Russia is being threatened (see quote below). So after all, "SVO" began with the aim of reducing these threats - at least the military ones. Or are these non-military threats? Stop buying oil? ZVR not return? BMW cars should not be sold to Russia, so that it would not have something to reward its Olympians? Then who made it so that the Russian budget, like 20 years ago, depends on the trade in natural resources (non-renewable, by the way)? Who transferred Russian income to Western banks? Who proved that Russian Olympians can compete without a uniform and a flag? Are these people under investigation? No, did the president's press secretary agree on a "sports citizenship" that you can choose if you are not allowed to compete with a Russian? And can there be threats to the offspring of such figures who have chosen "sports", "theater", "university" or simply "convenient" citizenship, who have now been turned into hostages? And the General Staff must now take this fact into account in military planning.

      According to the head of the Center for the Study of Public Applied Problems of National Security, retired colonel Alexander Zhilin, the Russian military is constrained by political restrictions.

      - The defeat of targets in Kyiv is logical, if you think from the point of view of Russia as a sovereign state. But Russia is dependent. Considering that in Ukraine we are opposed by a coalition of 50 states, the messages we receive are so serious that when the General Staff draws arrows on maps, they cannot ignore these messages. That is my guess.

      "SP": - Maybe then our commander-in-chief should not talk for an hour and a half with Macron, Scholz and other leaders, so as not to hear these messages and protect himself from their influence?

      “He can't afford not to answer their calls, because it concerns both the security of the country and him personally. Everything is very serious and very tough. In 2014, there was a serious conversation with the President of Switzerland (after which the Russian Federation pacified the Donbass - author). In addition to Macron and Scholz, there are more serious people representing world finance, whose resource is measured not by warheads, but by higher politics. Therefore, apparently, Abramovich was at the talks in Istanbul."

          Once again I carefully read Skomorokhov's article. Hmm. But everything is logical, everything is most likely the way it is. It is all the more difficult to admit that the scales of Ukraine are full of all sorts of different things: both a motivated army, inspired by victory, and the superiority of NATO in modern weapons, intelligence, and the superiority of NATO military art over outdated domestic rules of warfare, and the relaxed state of Russian society, lulled by fairy tales from Konoshenkov, but on our scale, judging by the text, NOTHING, except for missiles. I would like to know to a simple pensioner - how is it, but they inspire me that, they say, it’s none of your damn business, do we have such luminaries there in the General Staff?!!!? , and at the head is a wise GDP, TO which EVERYONE REPORTS. What I would like is for the GDP to speak to the people, not even in terms of how we got to such a life. Skomorokhov explained this to me, but what to do now, what he thinks about it: just please, without slogans. like, we will win anyway, because there are doubts, an ambush all around ...

For some reason, it seems to me that the lower levels are doing their job normally, and the mess begins at higher levels. And it is now generally a ubiquitous phenomenon in the country. Not only in the military, but also in the civil sphere. Where there are three foremen for one slave, and those spokes are inserted into the wheels.

      And the T-90 tanks - Ethiopia.
      They didn't fall out of nowhere. They behave as they are allowed to. The army is fighting somehow. The population more or less supports it, volunteers, volunteers go. So, everything is fine, from their point of view.
      If the conditional Kadyrov had said that they would not have a single volunteer until the troops had modern weapons, then they would vaguely feel that something was wrong.

      Why "special operation"? Yes, because according to the constitution, war on the state can only be declared when the enemy attacks our territory and attempts on the lives of our citizens by the army of a neighboring state. There was nothing like that from Ukraine. Therefore, it is impossible to declare "war", as well as to involve the army in full force. And a "special operation" can be carried out, but it can only be carried out by "police" forces with reinforcement units. War in the literal sense can be declared if enemy troops cross the border and begin mass shelling of our cities. In the meantime ... We have what we have.

        Do you consider citizens who have a Russian passport in their hands to be citizens of Russia? If so, then for your information, there were a huge number of such people in the LDNR, long before the SVO.

          But I'm wondering - did these citizens of Russia refuse Ukrainian citizenship, or do they also keep a passport with a trident, just in case?
          I read that in Transnistria, in general, the majority have three or even four passports - Moldovan, Romanian and Russian, and many also have Ukrainian ones. And what is convenient! And how is the situation with this in the LDNR? Also "multi-passport"?

              As far as I know, no. Some legal conflicts simply arise when two (or more) states protect their citizens from aggression from each other, and at the same time we are talking about the same individuals. An affectionate calf, of course, sucks two queens, but he can get slaps in the face from both.

    I am very interested in why the shelling of our territory is not considered as crossing the "red line", which is so fashionable to talk about? I wonder where the strikes are on decision-making centers, at least in Kyiv and Lvov, and not in Washington, London and Brussels?
    I understand the position of the Author, but at some points I do not agree with him.
    It is not the bridges across the Dnieper that need to be hit, but the transport infrastructure in the border regions of Ukraine with Poland. Bridges will be useful for our offensive (I hope that it will happen anyway). But it is simply necessary to disrupt the supply of Western weapons and "volunteer" mercenaries from the West.

      The generals and politicians of the Russian Federation will not do this. If they could, they would have already been bombed. The generals want to return to a peaceful, problem-free life as soon as possible.

      And why does everyone think that we didn’t bomb the bridges because we don’t want to? Can we really? In the railway bridge across the estuary near Odessa, "Caliber" was sent five times, with minimal damage and a short delay in train traffic. So they weren't able to put him out of action for a long time. So there was an understanding that dozens of missiles could be spent, and the result would be zero. And to arrange a massive air raid - the "completely destroyed" Ukrainian air defense does not allow. So our command has to puff out its cheeks and broadcast that even tomorrow we would have dropped these bridges into the Dnieper, but they don’t give us ... People are sorry.
      This is from a series of goodwill gestures near Kyiv and Chernigov - the troops were withdrawn for reasons of humanism ... After it became clear that they were not able to complete the task, and the losses were such that soon there would be no one to withdraw.

            Why they didn’t hit - the question is not for me, but for the General Staff. Guided missiles have more than sufficient accuracy.
            Fly and drop the bomb - why not? First, work hard on any air defense in the area, work on the radar (and there are such missiles), and then, immediately after the wave of turntables, strike from a bomber. Nothing is impossible when there is a will.

              I’ll clarify - the declared accuracy ... well, about “working out for any air defense” - the radars of the air defense systems of Ukraine do not work until the very moment of launch, as the sky is scanned by a NATO facility. Accordingly, it is possible to destroy air defense only by exchanging it for our aircraft (and it must be taken into account that one launcher is able to destroy several aircraft) ...

                  Super small will not help because:
                  1) FABIO-3000 cannot be dropped from them, because it won’t be able to cling to it, and the aircraft itself can fall under damaging elements (now our VKS most often work from a pitch-up without entering the affected area)
                  2) NATO uses flying radars and they see everything perfectly.
                  And the launch does not always mean the destruction of launchers or radars, since we don’t know for sure the level of interaction between UkroAir Defense and NATO AWACS ... otherwise, why do you think the air defense of Ukraine was destroyed only in the briefings of the Ministry of Defense ...

      It is not the bridges across the Dnieper that need to be hit, but the transport infrastructure in the border regions of Ukraine with Poland. Bridges will be useful for our offensive

      It is possible to attack from Belarus, in Soviet times the road network was completely established there, and the swamps were partially dried, in February the troops completely passed. And also from the south, from the Kherson region. In addition, in the event of our "fast" attack on the left-bank Ukraine, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will blow up the bridges themselves, if they are not idiots. But now the right-bank Ukraine would first need to be taken, retained and not completely lost. So bridges are not the time to regret.

    Twenty-five again... In modern history, there is only one example when a state was conditionally defeated by bombing and missile attacks alone - this is Serbia in 1999. In other cases, Western partners sent in troops or used proxy opposition (as in Libya). As long as we are fighting in Ukraine in a ratio of 1 to 3 or 1 to 5 not in our favor, we cannot speak of victory. The territory of the enemy is considered occupied when our soldiers are standing on it. And do not forget that conditionally 60000 soldiers we have (according to the USA) does not mean that these are all "active" bayonets. At least a third are rear services that do not sit in the trenches.

    The whole problem is that there is no political solution to win. Neither over Ukraine, nor over NATO. And there is a political decision to play for time in the hope of reaching an agreement. continue to trade, supply gas, grain, fertilizers. In all likelihood, the budget surplus of the Russian Federation looks in someone's perverted minds as a more important victory than anything else. Accountants rule.

        When the ideology of the state is to get rich at any cost, it is strange to expect a different motivation from officials of any of the state verticals. That's where they get rich. That's why they climbed into these chairs. Nobody is responsible for the failures? So after all, the goal is to support the process of earning dough. What other ideas, spirit and other incomprehensible things are there. They poured a lot of money into propaganda - an analogue of anesthesia for the people whose vital organs are cut out for sale, so that they lie quietly, do not twitch and do not interfere. And now the anesthesia has subsided, as some authors at the VO warned about for a long time. And the real state of affairs began to reach the patient. The question is what next this surgeon and this patient are going to do with each other. The surgeon seems to be still negotiating with business partners to continue the business. The patient regains consciousness and asks stupid questions like "where am I? And where is that fairy tale that I recently dreamed of? And something for the scars in the place where the vital organs should be?" How it all ends is a big question. One thing is certain, if the surgeon continues his work as before, the patient will not live. The patient is pushing this thought away from himself. How long?

      Because the situation is not at all simple, the sanctions turned out to be clearly stronger than expected before February 24, even China supports the sanctions, Kazakhstan recently announced that it was also ceasing to engage in “parallel” imports. If the energy blackmail of Europe does not work, and they somehow adapt to the new realities, then economically and technologically we will be “bankrupt” in two years.

    The fact that the top military leadership of the Russian Armed Forces of the NMD is carried out under political supervision and pressure should not be doubted. And about all three rounds of the former negotiations with Ukraine, no one asked the military. They ordered to participate decoratively and that's it. But what surprised me at the last talks was not so much the leadership of the delegation under the flag of the inveterate liberalist and falsifier of the History of Russia and the USSR Medinsky, but also the presence there under the guise of a mysterious "cardinal", but in fact a liberal swindler, Abramovich. And whose will Abramovich be, if we paraphrase Buncha from "Ivan Vasilyevich Changes His Profession"? And Abramovich is from the Chubais, Berezovskys and Nemtsovs. Only the smartest. And who will give guarantees that the top political leadership of the country, who believes that all Ukrainians will meet Russian troops with flowers and will only need to put their civilian governor-general there, Abramovich was not offered such a post earlier. So this Abramovich will lie with his bones, but whatever the infrastructure, there are bridges, tunnels, railways, traction substations, and even Kyiv itself was not bombed. How much money then will have to be invested in restoring, instead of immediately rowing them into the pocket of the governor general. Yes, and the Governor-General himself, after all, will sit in some kind of Zhytomyr, if the Nazi nests in Kyiv are now turned into ruins.

And his “closeness” to Putin does not even mean that he is a “great patriot” like Urgant, but that through him the “messages” of those who allowed Abramovich to pocket Soviet property and keep it in the West are brought to Putin.

                    And the argument in favor of "forced" to obtain Israeli citizenship for the sake of being in London is simply touching. Yes, yes, the rest of Abramovich’s 145 million former compatriots, who are now fighting in Ukraine, would not have endured the hardships of being left without Chelsea, the opportunity to admire Big Ben, invitations to the races. And are you sure that Putin is confident in him, if Abramovich does not even exist in Russia? In my opinion, this is an offer to Putin that he cannot refuse.

      Greetings. Let me disagree with you. Restoring the destroyed infrastructure for any dishonest governor general is a gold mine. Many people know how much they steal at our construction sites, you can remember one spaceport. And if you also need to raise the industry, then in general life is good. Equipment must be transported through three or four countries, according to gray schemes for sanctions. Ooh ... There's just an ocean of opportunities for money to stick to your hands.

    I read this sensible article, and I can not get rid of the thought that I want to share with you. The author very specifically listed the actions necessary to turn the situation at the front in our favor. That's just, about the need for such, seemingly obvious actions (attacks on infrastructure), has been written more than once since the beginning of the NWO in various publications. And I cannot get rid of the idea that the situation at the front is the result of informal agreements between us and the enemy. Namely, the Ukrainians are not really trying, and not in words, to destroy the Crimean bridge, we are not bombing the Kyiv bridges across the Dnieper. We do not "calibrate" the "decision-making centers" in Kyiv or Lvov, the Americans do not supply long-range missiles to the "chimeras" to the Ukrainians. Probably, you can find more examples of "bash on bash". And in this regard, another question arises - are we ready to discard all agreements, of course, if they exist, and start fighting according to the principle - "one victory is needed, we will not stand up for the price"?

    Pro fighting spirit is not just to praise. Many military correspondents note the tenacity with which the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine go on the attack, despite the losses. This is serious. And now, after the Kupyansko-Izyum victory, I suspect that this fighting spirit will have to be knocked out for quite a long time.

    On one Ukrainian projectile one hundred of ours should fly out. For one of their "Point" - twenty of our X-101 and ten "Caliber". Expensive but necessary.


    —-What can I say… multiply by infinity and the result will be even better. With all due respect, the word "should" is not synonymous with the word "plan, or business advice."

    —- These mythical NATO operational advisers are just a factor of disrespect and ignorance of the enemy. At least one is killed or in captivity, or is it like UAV pilots, thousands of kilometers from the scene of action. With continuous reconnaissance, any plan is good, ANY, as long as the enemy adapts with the REQUIRED intelligence.

    —-And also with the training of soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in NATO countries. And how many are there? 10,000, 50,000 or all 100,000?

    — Why did the Armed Forces of Ukraine fight near Kharkov as in the Kherson region? if the Russian Army was organized differently, with holes between strongholds.

    — By the way, “courage” is the Russian version of the word “courage” - courage, courage, valor. I don't know if the primary formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are contract soldiers or on the basis of conscription. In any case, they are ideologically sharpened against Russia as an imperial ruler. They don't fight for money.

    —- I doubt that the presence of Gerasimov would have changed anything in terms of content. This is the first war of capitalist Russia with a professional Army and freedom of the media - everything earlier is quasi-colonial expeditionary wars. And many tips based on the experience of the draft army and the socialist centralized economy are harmful and inappropriate, such as "there should be 100 times more .."

    —-Russia will certainly adapt and win, becauseon the balance sheet is the very existence of sovereign Russia.

    And let there lie the inability of our generals to correctly assess the operational situation. It's strange, but let it be on the same scale: Ukrainian fighters who know how to fight, foreign instructors who know how to teach and lead, and Russian generals who don't know how to do a lot of things.
    the expected "collision" on the generals. There are many of them, raids, in the article.
    But then the author himself remarks "The Russian armed forces, the National Guard, parts of the LPR, parts of the DPR, moreover, there are official, and there are separate volunteer formations such as the Vostok battalion of Alexander Khodakovsky, there are Chechen volunteer formations and official forces of the Chechen Republic. There are Russian volunteers - "musicians"."And everyone, excuse me, has their own command and their own supply lines. The author also forgot all sorts of units / special forces of three-letter offices.
    Who will allow the general of the MO to command them? Nobody.

    Ever since the time of the OGV, these issues have arisen in the North Caucasus, but mainly through the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, but somehow they tried to resolve the issue.
    And now "Ours is worse in this regard. Hydra is multi-headed."
    Even the author cannot name the command structures of the NWO. And since he communicates with respected people - "with comrade colonels and lieutenant colonels" - then the author could clarify what the principle of unity of command is. And what ends with non-compliance with this principle.
    That is why somewhere there is infantry with a small amount of equipment / ammo / reconnaissance equipment, and somewhere there is a lot of equipment, but there is no infantry that would cover it. Example " I have fewer people than I would like - but I experience the main difficulty not in this, but in the fact that for hours I cannot find the positions of the enemy from which he is hitting us - yesterday two light three hundredths. I can’t, because there are no means of artillery reconnaissance. I can't because their electronic warfare won't let me fly. And if I suddenly can, then I don’t have enough range to cover them, or I don’t have enough BC ... I can’t calculate and screw them at the stage of formation of battle formations before deploying to the attack, when they are crowded and represent a good target - all for the same reasons . https://t.me/s/aleksandr_skif

    When you do not have the initiative, everything is useless, if all the time retreating is inevitable defeat. We have no new ideas either in politics, or in military affairs, or in economics, etc. We just take the Western one 20 years ago. An example is a grain deal, the West has caught up with such a fuss that we are arranging a famine, that we crap ourselves and went to a grain deal, they pump grain for themselves and silence. Where is our initiative? Why not raise a fuss in the media of Africa, Asia, lat. America, we can still talk there, and not whisper like Nebenzya at the UN

    it turned out that at that time the Armed Forces of Ukraine worked purely according to the methods inherited from the USSR. Well, the colonels with academic education told us so.

    All the same, manuals are in some kind of Ministry of Education, and in the Armed Forces - Charters.

    It is obvious that all this "SVO" is being carried out under strict political restrictions imposed on the military: you can't hit Kyiv, you can't hit bridges and critical infrastructure, you can't hit Zelensky, you can't hit the GUR and other "decision-making centers" either. Why not?

    As far as I understood, we did not plan to fight at all. We were supposed to just scare them with our formidable appearance.

    Absolutely, a sort of Crimea 2.0 was planned - polite people, parade columns, caps in the air ..... all this was supported by false intelligence reports that they were waiting for us there (for sure, the Americans were actively shaking carrots in front of donkeys' noses and feeding this blizzard to our knights of the cloak and dagger, and they ate it with pleasure). Well, how can you not believe these knights, according to reports, at least half of the ukroreich is in their agents.
    This was where the plan ended. The rest of the time is an attempt to jump off and negotiate. But who will give them now.

      At one time, the Yankees so caught Hussein in Kuwait. Subsequently, it became known that Saddam informed his overseas, as he considered, curators, of his intention to annex Kuwait in advance, for which he received assurances of benevolent neutrality. What happened then, with Iraq and Hussein himself, everyone knows. Obviously, the curators were no longer satisfied with the "supervised" who imagined himself too much. We decided to dump. Now, on the march, they also decided to arrange a demonstrative flogging of the starry energy superpower, and at the same time to stimulate the EU, which began to forget about the importance of friendship with an overseas senior partner. Ukraine and Poland were chosen as instruments (Great Britain is still a player, not an instrument), however, this is only a joy for them.

    I thought the goal of the SVO was "demilitarization" (the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine) and "denazification" (the overthrow of the government). And the author writes that it is necessary to arrange a genocide of the population, depriving it of heat and electricity in winter. Why be trifles and not offer sarin or anthrax?

    The article is correct. I repeat for the hundredth time: until we all, from a soldier to a general and a simple layman, understand that the ex-Ukrainian SSR and its inhabitants are an enemy that NATO is preparing, there will be no complete victory. A simple example: yesterday two teenage refugees from Ukraine , 16 years old, in my city they tried to throw bottles with a combustible mixture into the windows of a kindergarten. Thank God they were caught. During interrogation, they stupidly yelled Glory to Ukraine and the Russians are enemies.

    Our people who watch TV have been immersed in the world of fantasy. NTV is especially different. Some superheroes are destroying companies of bandits. "Sea devils" have no equal in the world. And look, ordinary people are fighting in Ukraine. If there are no superheroes in life, why should young people fool their brains. After all, many of them accept all this as the truth. And he goes to distinguish himself as a bandit. Filmmakers do not have enough talent for real life? This is the whole truth. To rub non-existent heroism. And where it really is, directors are not interested in such heroism. Everything is too mundane.

    From the first days of the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkov direction, it became clear that "something went wrong."
    But now it's too late to sprinkle ashes on your head, blame the command, intelligence, etc. in that they overslept the preparation of the strike of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    Now we need to stop and begin to strengthen ourselves in the territory that we managed to liberate. It is clear that we will not have peace there, but we need to analyze and understand the whole situation. Give the army a break. Pull up reserves and equipment.
    And then ... further, as the author correctly pointed out, strikes must be delivered against the infrastructure of the enemy - thermal power plants and pumping stations, traction substations, bridges and overpasses, fuel storage facilities, winter is just around the corner and the enemy should not have illusions that they will be able to winter in warmth and comfort.
    As for the notorious "decision-making centers", everyone probably understands that they simply do not exist in Ukraine. It is possible to smash all of Kyiv and Lvov, but absolutely nothing can be achieved, the army is not commanded from there. So it won't do anything. Of course, it is necessary to work in this direction, but the work must be more subtle and secretive, and this is already a matter of intelligence.
    Well, the most important thing now is to stop the panic among the population, not only in the Donbass and the liberated territories, there is just the least of it. Panic moods began again in Russia, it was similar immediately after the start of the NWO or, after all, the war ...
    But this can and should be fought, the methods have long been known and tested.
    SMERSH, Cheka, etc. - whatever you want to call it. Since the West and Ukraine are not shy about using this experience, as they say, God himself ordered it.
    And the victory will still be ours!
    Because whoever has the truth is stronger!

    Some Kringe.
    Let me remind you how the Armed Forces of Ukraine acted near Kherson. This is useful, we discussed behind the scenes with fellow colonels and lieutenant colonels, it turned out that at that time the Armed Forces of Ukraine worked purely according to the methods inherited from the USSR. Well, the colonels with academic education told us so.
    Near Kherson, everything was textbook: artillery treatment of the front line, attempts to portray something with aviation (here, yes, our air defense said: “Go ...”), tank strike groups, supported by large infantry forces (in fact, it was the BTG that worked) tried to push through the defense between clearly identified strongholds, broke through it, armored infantry went into the breakthrough, then “stop”, consolidated and began to look for new weak points in order to hit there with tanks.
    Familiar? Of course. To anyone who took the BUSV in their hands, not for a superficial acquaintance. The fact that Ukrainians and Russians acted according to the same manuals led to the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kherson.
    The Russian army perfectly implemented the tactics of dragging armored vehicles under artillery and air strikes. It was possible to correctly realize the advantage in artillery and MLRS. The Armed Forces suffered significant losses.


    the regrouping of our troops began in order to cover precisely the most tank-dangerous directions. That is why it is impossible to explain the presence of reservists from the LPR and units of the National Guard in the same Balakleya.
    Alas, the APU were no longer the same. The guys from NATO did a great job. Obviously, it was not Ukrainian officers who led the operation. Tactics were used, something between the Donbass of the 2015 model and the actions of some US units in Iraq.
    The main tactical maneuver was the control of the roads. No head-on attacks, no concentration of armored vehicles in shock groups. Mobile DRG strikes on communications, bypasses on wheels of strongholds, followed by the introduction of tanks into the breakthrough - and now a threat is being created to encircle an entire group of Russian troops in Izyum, while Russian military leaders were expecting strikes in completely different places.


    Well, since the conversation is "with comrade colonels and lieutenant colonels" and even "BUSV is not for superficial acquaintance", then you can at least find out from them what they think about defense, which:
    1 is built by "mobiles" with wearable weapons
    2 units of the RF Armed Forces
    Well, all of a sudden, colonels and lieutenant colonels will say that where a standard defense is being built from trained units (“we read the Charters!”), The enemy has no success there.
    And where the defense is being built from "what is and has recently been mobilized," there are "mobile DRGs for communications, bypasses on wheels of strong points, followed by the introduction of tanks into the breakthrough."

    There is no need to blame everything on "under the guidance of NATO instructors, their soldiers are capable of good maneuvering actions." There are troops - there is defense. No troops - no defense.

    And by the way, all of a sudden the colonels will say "and the generals are not so bad, the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not manage to make a single significant encirclement, the troops were withdrawn in a timely manner."
    And, perhaps, they will say what are the requirements for the number of troops for the offensive and defense, and what, in their opinion, should be the line of the database in connection with this. That is, what tasks can the RF Armed Forces perform and where, given that, according to the soulless West, their number did not exceed 200 BTGs with an unknown number of l / s in these BTGs.
    Well, this is not all discoveries, especially for colonels "with an academic education"!

    And now, after the respected author shares such simple knowledge, you can move on to ideas like "The Russian army has time belay to move the Armed Forces back, from the border, beyond the range of artillery and MLRS "" No more people are needed belay . We need more missiles, more missiles and more missiles. recourse It is possible and necessary to scoop out all the arsenals and use even the most ancient lol cruise missiles capable of operating in Ukrainian conditions. First of all, knock out the guidance radar and air defense systems. It's hard, you need a decent crying satellite constellation, which we do not have.
    On one Ukrainian projectile one hundred of ours should fly out. For one of their "Point" - twenty of our X-101 and ten "Caliber". fellow Expensive but necessary. crying
    How much we hollowed about the bridges across the Dnieper? What backroom agreements laughing prevent them from being destroyed and depriving the Armed Forces of Ukraine of the supply of everything? Yes, to hit substations, to deprive Ukrzaliznitsa of the opportunity to transport equipment and ammunition to the front. "
    Or maybe "colonels with an academic education" will cut down, so to speak, these ideas as not corresponding to the situation and tasks ... winked

    The title of the article is somewhat exaggerated: NATO is fighting against Russia, but is Russia fighting against NATO? US satellites give target designation to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, American officers are planning operations in Ukraine, mercenaries are driving tanks near Kharkov, servicemen in NATO uniforms have been spotted in the Donbass. But what about Russia? Nothing, he observes, even without "an expression of concern." However, if Russia does not oppose any negative consequences for the organization of military operations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to NATO structures, then why shouldn't they continue to do this?

    We should expect the completion of the clearing of the dill near Kherson and the continuation of our offensive. Raisins are unlikely to be beaten right now, due to senselessness.

    where no less joyful residents tear down and carry Russian flags to the garbage heaps and hoist Ukrainian flags back.


    And then you can ask Skomorokhov one natural question, I was already lifted up by cries about those whom we supposedly left behind. If these people are so happy about the return of the government, then why should we somehow bother with their protection? The Izyuimsky bridgehead was actually abandoned a very long time ago, turning into an absolutely unsuitable for defense territory on which there are no forces for this defense. He has fulfilled his task, and there is nothing more to sit there. For the sake of protection, we had to leave these guys there against the superior forces of our boys? Am I understanding hysteria correctly? What was needed for the sake of the territory, which was not supposed to be used in the near future and the disloyal population to risk a grouping?

    which means as artillery strikes on the settlements of the Kursk and Belgorod regions


    There is one problem for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, there are also troops there that formally do not participate in the NVO.

    but you should clearly calculate the mobilization capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine


    OK I think. If the population is 30 million, and 1.5-2% can be mobilized, then it will be 450-600 thousand. This is taking into account those who were in the Armed Forces of Ukraine on February 24.02.2022, 1870. A larger percentage is actually total mobilization for which young men are also needed. ALL. France, for example, in the Franco-Prussian 5.6s was able to drive XNUMX% into the army, but it had a lot of young people and the technological capabilities to equip these people. Nothing like modern dying states with a population of Zrobitchan does not shine. No millions and even a million there and does not smell.

    The leadership of the army does not understand this, but this is generally a separate conversation.


    The task of the army is to destroy the enemy, and not to wipe the snot off the locals who will be offended by it.

    (I counted 14 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles, 4 self-propelled guns, 1 Zoo in four videos in the TG), it doesn’t look very much like a planned retreat.


    You're all lying, Ukronov news talk about 300 units, they won't lie, everyone knows.

    In fact, in terms of trophies for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, everything is sad there, because the bulk of them are simply not combat-ready, and perhaps they have been standing there for quite a long time, but for some reason they were not able to fit the tractor (which, by the way, is also a question for those responsible, but this was, is and will be). However, I have a question about the photo with tanks on the road. Either they were dragged there from different places, or they drove in such an organized way, but for some reason the crews left them. But then the question is not about the organization of the withdrawal, but specifically to the crews.

    Maybe the difference between Kherson and Kharkov in geography?
    Kherson: mostly steppes, it is easy to notice the DRG on vehicles, the antidote is a combat helicopter, and preferably two. As a last resort, artillery (on a moving target ???). The number of DRGs is small, the loss of 1-2 units of equipment calls into question the fulfillment of the task.
    Kharkov: a lot of forest, shelters, uneven terrain, it is easier to seep through unnoticed.
    If we take into account the obvious shortcoming of EVERYTHING, first of all, the personnel, then the decision to strengthen strongholds and weak control over the fact that between them is from the series "we stretch our legs along clothes." Near Kherson it would work (oh, steppe), near Kharkov we have what we have.
    As a virtual tanker I say: cover the flank with at least light !!! It is very unpleasant when the whole herd rushed to one flank, completely abandoning the other, and from there gifts arrive from the "darkness". In this case, the only chance to win the battle is the attack of the herd, passive waiting is a guarantee of defeat.

    Therefore:
    - bridges across the Dnieper must be destroyed;
    - traction substations at junction railway stations, thermal power plants in cities should be destroyed;
    - decision-making centers must be destroyed.


    Bridges across the Dnieper are also hydroelectric dams, their destruction will wash away Kherson, we have already seen how other bridges will be restored, it turns out that if you wish, this is not so difficult to do.

    Traction substations have been bombed for a long time. The destruction of thermal power plants in cities is just a humanitarian catastrophe right away, because there will be not only no Internet and possible news, but also water. Otherwise, they would have been destroyed in March. Although now, apparently, they will destroy. Not all, but to feel.

    The decision-making centers are located in the United States, in this regard, even the destruction of Zelensky does not make any sense, someone competent can be imprisoned instead.

    In general, if the author considers himself smarter than MO, then let him turn to them and explain to them what needs to be done.

    Everything is correct in the article, I recently noticed that I studied in the same schools, academies - only it seems that the best "students" turned out to be on the other side. What is taught in military "institutes" now? There were military schools, this is the traditional name of military schools since the time of Tsar Pea (just kidding), nevertheless. Now these, what should I call them? Yeah, military students - do you like it? I have already spoken about my neighbor's son. Doesn't want to serve. Although there are combat examples for these graduates.
    Our Vasya Masyuk came to them, gave a lesson in courage and combat skills, Igor (name changed) told me about it. On Victory Day, they talk about preserving and observing traditions, including military ones. However, this is just a crackle that does not carry a semantic content. Here one commentator, without understanding, threw out that the heritage of the USSR military school is outdated. They use this heritage, on the other hand, and successfully! And ours...

    I do not understand the strategy of "saving infrastructure", while "grinding the enemy's manpower", which, according to some sources, has already destroyed up to 200 thousand souls. By design, it should be less painful and destructive, have milder consequences after the war? Some mystery lies here.
