The pulling of large forces by Russia to the south may indicate the imminent start of the battle for Odessa

Western observers report a buildup of Russian forces in the northern part of Crimea near the Kherson region. Thus, journalists from Radio Liberty (an organization recognized in Russia as a foreign agent) presented photographs showing an increase in the number of military equipment in the village of Filatovka.

In particular, this is evidenced by the pictures of the American company Planet Labs dated May 6. According to the images, one of three types of anti-aircraft missile systems are located here: the Smerch MLRS, the S-300 anti-aircraft system, or the Iskander operational-tactical missile system.

The concentration of Russian anti-aircraft missile forces in this direction may indicate the likelihood of an early offensive of the RF Armed Forces on Odessa.

Meanwhile, according to the official representative of the Russian military department, Major General Igor Konashenkov, dated May 8, a Ukrainian project 1241 Molniya corvette was destroyed by high-precision weapons near Odessa. The corvette was capable of carrying four anti-ship missiles and posed a great danger to middle class ships.

In addition, on the night of May 7-8, the Russian military shot down a Bayraktar-TB2 unmanned aerial vehicle near Odessa. Two Su-24 bombers and one Mi-24 helicopter of the Ukrainian armed forces were hit in the sky of Zmeiny Island.

      Well, you shouldn’t really hope for the “pro-Russianness” of the inhabitants of Odessa! They already crap once, when 400 Banderaites arrived and put the whole city on their ears, burned people in, as it was called the House of Trade Unions or something .. And the pontorezites of Odessa are all .. who fled, who left the city for dachas, and who I just watched in the crowd! .. So Odessa is waiting for the fate of Mariupol .. no one will support us there - they will only get in the way, interfere with the Russian military, save their property .. Myth, myth about the peculiarity and Russianness of Odessa! This is not Sevastopol, I didn’t even stand nearby .. bendy Odessa

        As grandfather Lenin said, it is not the one who has the right policy that wins, but the one who is BETTER ORGANIZED. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the statement, but the general idea, I think, is clear. This is, firstly, and secondly, the policy of the Ukrainian leadership de facto favored the Nazis and infringed upon the Russians, who were poorly organized.

      Where is the hurry? In the Donbass, the most combat-ready forces of Ukraine are gradually being crushed (destroyed), the most combat-ready and motivated Nazis and fighters are dying, and the infrastructure of Ukraine is being destroyed. Only Europe is interested in the speedy end of the conflict, because the discontent of the masses is growing there, because in addition to inflation and the rise in the price of everything, the prospects for a bright, prosperous future for Europe are increasingly fading, and soon they will no longer blame Russia, but their own governments. The prolongation of the conflict is important for the Anglo-Saxons, because they were its initiators, Great Britain left the euro zone in advance, the United States hastily left Afghanistan ... the collapse of a united Europe and the euro.

    This was to be expected, but some hacks still could not wait for more decisive action by our Armed Forces. If none of the relatives and friends participate in the special. operations, then our Armed Forces can be criticized for the slowness, but they do not feel sorry for our boys fighting there, so they are in a hurry .... The main thing is to fulfill the task set by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, while saving as many lives of our military and civilians as possible ... and you don’t need a lot of mind to beat with everything and anything and anywhere ...

    Our armed forces are good, they cannot really disguise equipment.
    Everything is open.

    Throughout the course of the NWO, Russia showed the weakness and indecision of both the military and the highest political representatives of power.
    What training are you talking about? To Odessa 300 km. This is insurmountable for the Russian army. They "take" the village of Barvenkovo ​​in the steppe along Kharkov for a month. And soon they will go to the border of the Russian Federation. Can not! They can't do anything. The Black Sea Fleet is essentially destroyed, the Aerospace Forces are not approaching Ukraine closer to the Caspian Sea. The ground troops huddle close to the border so that there is somewhere to escape.

      I translate: it means that crests, having eaten sbitnya and grass (marijuana herbs), went to the roof and imagined themselves to be the successors of the work of Uncle Aloizych and Styopka Baba (Bandera)! As far as I can see, there were 27 pelvises, and, of course, 6 carts of herbs!
