Why Ukraine moved from a dead defense to a counteroffensive


Today, when the entire post-Soviet space is celebrating Victory Day, the collective West has de facto openly declared war on us, saying that it "will not allow Russia to win in Ukraine." Moreover, London is ready to help Kyiv with such offensive weapons that will allow it to recapture the former territories of Independence already liberated from Nazi power. Favored by support, Ukraine launched a counteroffensive.


Challenge thrown


As a result of the meeting of the so-called "Big Seven", the following statement was made:

The GXNUMX and Ukraine are united in this difficult time and in their desire to secure a democratic, prosperous future for this country. We remain united in our determination to prevent President Putin from winning his war against Ukraine.

The US, UK, Canada, France, Italy, Germany and Japan signed up to provide Ukraine with $24 billion in financial assistance and also undermine Moscow's ability to continue the military sting operation by imposing sanctions on Russian oil exports. Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Boris Johnson went furthest:

Ukraine needed to obtain weapons that would allow it not only to hold its territory, but also to win it back.

Since neither Kyiv, nor London, nor the entire collective West recognized Crimea and Sevastopol as Russian, in fact, this is a real declaration of war against our country, so far in the “proxy” format. For now. Moreover, it was done on May 8, when Europe celebrates the day of victory over Nazi Germany, which adds a special cynicism to what is happening. What does it mean?

This means that the Kremlin will not be allowed to complete the special operation in Ukraine unilaterally in any case, even if our excessively “peace-loving elites” try to limit themselves to liberation from the occupation of the territory of the DPR and LPR. At the same time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already moved from a deaf defense to active counter-offensive operations, and, alas, they have achieved notable success in some areas.

Ukraine attacks


The day before the main stream News came from the southwestern front. It is reported that the remnants of the Ukrainian Navy, with the support of the Air Force, tried to recapture Snake Island by landing there. Recall that control over this strategically important island passed to Russia in the very first days after the start of the special operation. Ukrainian propaganda then in a hurry blinded a fake about how, during the “heroic” defense of the Serpentine, all the border guards who received the title of Heroes posthumously were killed in an unequal battle. In fact, it turned out that only a mat was enough for the fuse of the border guards, and after warning shelling, they prudently preferred to surrender and are now alive and well.

The same cannot be said about the Ukrainian special forces, whom Kyiv sent to Serpentine in a suicidal attack for the sake of media “winning”. After the death of the cruiser Moskva, the strategic importance of the island for the Russian Navy increased dramatically. Apparently, a surveillance radar was placed on it to control the airspace of Ukraine and Romania, as well as air defense systems. During an attempt at a night operation on Zmeinoye, three Ukrainian Mi-8 helicopters with troops on board, a Stanislav assault boat were destroyed, one Su-27 fighter and three Su-24 VVSU bombers, three Bayraktar TB2 UAVs were shot down, as well as in the area Odessa, a corvette of the Ukrainian Navy of project 1241 (a boat of project 1241 "Lightning") was sunk.

It is reported that Russian troops withdrew from the island in advance, essentially luring the Ukrainian special forces into a trap. However, this tactical success can be leveled by the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already received American-made 155-mm howitzers M777 as military assistance, which with Excalibur shells are capable of finishing off Zmeiny directly from the coast of the Odessa region. In addition, do not forget that the Ukrainian army is armed with Soviet-made Tochka-U OTRKs, and Kyiv also received NATO-style long-range MLRS.

In general, most likely, Russian troops will have to retreat from Zmeinoye, without turning the confrontation for it into a constant exchange of manpower and combat equipment. Maintaining control over it is expedient if a land operation in the Northern Black Sea region is expected in the very foreseeable future.

In the meantime, the main forces of the Russian army are involved in the Donbass. Progress has been very slow for a number of reasons.

At first, over the past 8 years, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have turned the cities of the Donetsk and Luhansk agglomerations into full-fledged fortified areas.

Secondly, the Ukrainian military and national guards shamelessly hide behind their own fellow citizens, which is why the RF Armed Forces cannot fully use their advantage in heavy strike weapons and aviation.

Thirdly, the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard are much better trained, organized and motivated than it was in 2014-2015, and their management and provision of all operational intelligence is actually carried out by NATO generals.

In these unfavorable conditions, the General Staff of the RF Armed Forces had to rely on the tactics of slowly gnawing through the enemy's echeloned defenses, when its numerous knots are successively destroyed by artillery and then cleared. The liberation of Popasna after long and stubborn urban battles can be called a great success, which is the key to further progress and the formation of the first real “cauldron” in the LPR, where thousands of Ukrainian military may find themselves. Due to such tactics, own losses are minimized, and the end result is inevitable, but the operation to liberate the territory of Donbass will inevitably take a lot of time. This, alas, was able to take advantage of the enemy, who carried out a successful counter-offensive in the northern direction.

So, until recently Kharkov, one of the largest strategically important cities in Ukraine, was in a semi-encirclement. The Armed Forces of Ukraine transferred significant forces to it in order to divert the attention of our General Staff from the Donbass, and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, avoiding being surrounded, were forced to retreat almost to the very state border. Unfortunately, Kyiv was able to achieve an image “overcome”. Why such things are even possible just a few dozen kilometers from Russia, where we have air supremacy, is completely incomprehensible. Experts reassure that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will themselves be forced to roll back from Kharkov to the west when their defenses in the Donbas collapse. This is indeed true, but the very tendency that the RF Armed Forces have to retreat again is annoying, leaving, it would seem, already liberated settlements where a new “Bucha” may occur.

All this once again raises the question that the military contingent involved in the special operation is not enough for effective action in several directions at once, and Moscow should still think about at least partial mobilization. Russian contractors operate in hostile territory against a numerically superior enemy. For a decisive defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it will be enough to increase the number of forces to 350-400 thousand military personnel, in total. The entire collective West is already openly fighting against us, and it is impossible to delay the special operation, since the price of victory is only growing day by day.

                And how did the expensive Odessa hotel threaten the future of Russia?

                5 buildings destroyed. The fire was extinguished, 2 people were injured, they were taken to the hospital. The rubble, from under which the dog was rescued, continues.

                I think gratitude for the NWO of Ukrainians is growing every day, after such Grande Pettine.

                    For example, Strelkov in Kherson posted the following:

                    My friend returned from a trip to Kherson on a humanitarian mission. On his return, he called me and said: "You know, your lyrics are even too optimistic." Based on the results of communication with residents, he wrote his observations:
                    ...
                    5. On the spot, after talking with the locals, you clearly understand that the ongoing war is civil. The choice of side is purely political. It doesn't even depend on the language.
                    6. The Russian Federation is losing the war for the minds. Because it's not clear whether Russia will stay or leave. The local pro-Russians sit quietly. They left Ukrainian TV, they just cut off the news channels. Not everyone has Russian ones.
                    7. As a result, the mood in society is dominated by pro-Ukrainian ones. Judging by the conversations, 30% are for Russia, 50% are for Ukraine, 20% do not care. In the villages, the attitude towards Russians is worse than in the city.

          But, you were silent all these eight years when the children of Donbass were killed. You were silent when the native Russian people on this earth were forbidden to speak and write in Russian. You were silent when the nationalists killed people just because they thought differently. You with your concepts, do not appreciate the deaths of 15 thousand civilians in his years in the Donbass. And now you're lying on the couch making yourself a peaceful dove.

            Oh .. My friend, it's not good to deceive. From 2014 to February 23, 13,8 thousand people died in the Donbass, of which 4641 lost the Armed Forces of Ukraine, 5795 armed formations of the LDNR, 3390 civilians (on both sides).
            According to the UN, 2021 civilians died in 15 (7 of them in the territories of the LDNR), most of them died due to careless handling of explosive objects (mines, shells were dismantled).
            According to the UN, from 24.02 to 09.05, 1699 people died in the territories controlled by Kyiv in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, 111 people died in the uncontrolled territories, 1571 people died in other regions of Ukraine, 3381 in total. (And Mariupol is not included here) https://www. kommersant.ru/doc/5347274
            During these two and a half months, as many people died as during the previous 8 years. Why are you silent?

        You understand what's the matter. I am for a strong and prosperous Russia. And what is Russia? These are the people who inhabit it. This means that a strong Russia is, first of all, the prosperity of its citizens, the high level of their quality of life. Does the confrontation with the whole world (at least the developed one) meet these goals? Obviously not. Does your (now unfulfilled) fantasy about dozens of aircraft carriers meet these goals? Obviously not. Meets these goals of conducting a ruinous warrior? Again, no. So it turns out that I am for a strong and prosperous Russia, and you are not.

            What a stupid, stupid excuse. No one was going to attack the Russian Federation and is not going to. It's as crazy as your wanting to die in a nuclear war.

              Well, imagine that an inadequate crowd with weapons will surround you and say that they are not going to attack you. Will you believe?
              And who would talk about honor, like you said recently that Leningrad should have been handed over to Hitler.

                How I like such inadequate associations. Which of the parties is adequate is a highly controversial issue.
                The problem is that this environment is only in the minds of people like you. How many Estonian troops are there? 5000. Poland 100 thousand, Germany 100 thousand. The US contingent in Europe has been declining for the last 30 years (until February). How much is spent on defense? I remember Trump complaining that Europeans do not even spend the required 2% of GDP.
                Now, yes, Putin's cunning plan was a success. And the budgets will increase (NATO generals will probably light candles for Putin’s health), and the number of troops, and the US contingent will increase for the first time since the 80s, and new NATO members will appear, who were neutrals throughout the Cold War, and the length of borders with NATO will increase by an order of magnitude. Do you think that's how it was intended?

                    You are even rude sadly, not interested.
                    Well, what are you wearing? If you are talking about nuclear, then it was reduced on the basis of reciprocity, and under Putin it was reduced more than under Yeltsin. If you are talking about the conventional, then this is nonsense, it is directed only in your head. And if you are going to attack Russia, then you must concentrate at least a million soldiers, but there is no such thing.

                      Well, why are you talking about nuclear weapons right away? Of course, it also plays a role, but there are also non-nuclear weapons capable of inflicting the same damage but without side effects. The times when armies faced in the battle of soldiers against soldiers are long gone, the time has come for cruise missiles, carpet bombing and the so-called "smart" weapons.

                20 years ago there were no questions, the Armed Forces calmed down the separatist region, which was seeking independence by openly terrorist methods. (By the way, considers they calmed down?)

After all, these are the original territories of the USA, Germany and England, which were legally taken from Russia. Absolutely not thinking of attacking her.

    The task of the NWO is not entirely clear - how to return NATO to the borders of 1979, demilitarize and denazify Ukraine without its complete occupation and deprivation of statehood, and if the task is to liberate the DPR-LPR, then why scatter forces and means in other directions.
    The tactics and strategy of the NMD are incomprehensible - with complete air supremacy and the presence of long-range weapons, the state administration system and the transport network are not violated - authorities at all levels, border crossings, railway junctions, etc., etc. This makes it possible to carry out mobilization activities, and the Western allies of Ukraine to freely increase the supply of weapons, actually at the expense of the Russian Federation, stolen by the USA 300 billion. The General Staff to maneuver forces and means, and the industry to supply the army with the necessary resources from food and building materials to ammunition and military equipment.
    Negotiations with representatives of nationalists are incomprehensible and what will the recognition of Crimea by Ukraine as Russian, the independence of the DPR and LPR, if suddenly Mr. Medinsky achieves it “at gunpoint”?
    The longer the NWO lasts, the deeper this swamp will suck in, getting out of which will be possible only by agreeing to half measures, at best, which will be perceived by everyone as a defeat of the Russian Federation.

And the United States will never lose its financial interest in the war of Russians against Russians. This is for them a "blue dream" come true. Moreover, the capital of the Russian Federation also had a hand in this.

          Ja, Du hast Recht, aber: Auch der Krieg in Syrien, im Jemen, in Afghanistan wurde von der NATO nicht gewonnen und ging langsam zuende. Auch der Iran konnte nicht unterworfen werden und die Dinge verändern sich. Die Stimmung in Europa ändert sich. Viele Menschen beginnen an den Lügen der westlichen Presse zu zweifeln. Die Preise Steigen. Die Deutsche Regierung rät Retnern ihren Winter in warmen ländern Europas zu verbringen um Energie zu sparen. Im Winter beginnt eine Fußball-WM in Qatar. Was denken Sie wird passieren wenn Fußballspieler Regenbogen-Fahnen zeigen. Vielleicht werden die verhaftet. Vielleicht wird die WM abgebrochen? Zu jeder Weihnachten hat Israel Palestine and Gaza bomardiert. Was wenn der Iran während der WM Raketen über Katar in die Golanhöhen schickt? Es kann vieles passieren. Die schwierige Lage der russischen Seestreitkräfte im Schwarzen Meer und der Kampf um die Schlangeninsel hat gezeigt, daß die USA im Persischen Golf völlig verloren sind. Die USA kann dort nichts anrichten. Was ist wenn der Iran die Straße von Hormuz sperrt, wo wird dann die Welt ihr Gas und Öl herbekommen? Venezuela? In Nicaragua bauen China und Rußland einen Kanal wie den Panamakanal. Es ist eine Frage der Zeit bis die USA dort einen Krieg anfangen. Warten Sie ab, in sechs Monaten redet keiner mehr vom Ukraine-Krieg.

            Therefore, the United States provokes an escalation at those points where it can. Otherwise, the end of the dominance of the dollar will come and at the same time create pretexts for a world war, which will end in the collapse of all economies. And they hope to create a new society subordinate only to them on the ruins of the "old world". Qatar is an obedient US puppet and will do nothing to the "rainbow flags".

    Why Ukraine moved from a dead defense to a counteroffensive

    - I don’t understand. I don’t understand this author = he then “changes shoes”; and then again "put on the old slippers" !!!

    Firstly, over the past 8 years, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have turned the cities of the Donetsk and Luhansk agglomerations into full-fledged fortified areas.

    - Yes, what kind of "full-fledged fortified areas" are there. - These are earthen trenches, or something - like in Maryinka, which the RF Armed Forces have been unable to take for more than a month ???
    - Here, however, they somehow showed one pillbox - a "firing concrete bunker-dugout" - with two entrance doors (one after the other) and one loophole!
    - True - it is impossible to understand the "functional purpose" of this pillbox - a fire bunker-dugout - because it is located very low; and its only "loopholes", from which you can only shoot from a machine gun or machine gun, has a very limited view! - You can’t put a gun there (you can’t even put a light mortar) - what is the purpose of this bunker - only as a storage room. - And mostly they show the abandoned APU - earthen trenches and ordinary bulk dugouts; which, from being hit by an ordinary high-explosive projectile, will simply scatter in different directions (which is repeatedly shown in military reports).

    Secondly, the Ukrainian military and national guards shamelessly hide behind their own fellow citizens, which is why the RF Armed Forces cannot fully use their advantage in heavy strike weapons and aviation.

    - Yes, enough already to speculate on this topic! - Who prevents the use of UAVs (shock and spotters) ... - These Russian UAVs should hang over dozens of round-the-clock positions over the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and deliver pinpoint strikes and adjust the fire of Russian batteries !!! - But Russia simply does not have these UAVs (very few); and to use these UAVs - our soldiers were not trained !!! - From whom is the demand???

    Thirdly, the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Guard are much better trained, organized and motivated than it was in 2014-2015,

    - I will say more - the artillerymen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the operators of the MLRS are much better prepared than our Russian specialists - and they strike very accurately!

      So, until recently Kharkov, one of the largest strategically important cities in Ukraine, was in a semi-encirclement. The Armed Forces of Ukraine transferred significant forces to it in order to divert the attention of our General Staff from the Donbass, and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, avoiding being surrounded, were forced to retreat almost to the very state border. Unfortunately, Kyiv was able to achieve an image “overcome”.

      - The "strategy and tactics" of the command of our RF Armed Forces are absolutely incomprehensible !!!
      - For some reason, all the reserves arriving for the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not destroyed on the way and along the way to the front line ?????? - The Armed Forces of Ukraine easily receive the necessary number of weapons, ammunition and fuel for their needs and very easily and simply transfer their military units and military equipment over open areas without any losses !!! - And where is our aerial reconnaissance; where is our satellite intelligence; where are our videoconferencing??? What's happening !!!

        Ihre Beobachtungen sind richtig, doch vergessen Sie nicht die Erfahrungen der CIA/MI6 in Mali (alles Sahel Wüste) und Syrien (alles Wüste). Dort gibt es keine Tankstellen weit und breit und die Geheimdienste der NATO haben dort unterirdische Treibstofftanks angelegt und Tausende von Kanistern versteckt, die nach Bedarf ausgegraben werden können und aus denen sich die Terroristen oder die Nazis in der Ukraine speisen können.

Aber, man konnte sehen wie mit drei Mörsern und vier Maschinengewehren die gesamte US-Landeeinheit zusammensgeschossen wurde. Das war durchaus realistisch dargestellt. Ja, sie haben recht, die Befestigungsanlagen in der Normandie waren tatsächliche Befstigungsanlagen. Besser als die im Osten der Ukraine.

      Aber trotzdem, Schützengräben sind wirklich wirksam wen sie wie ein "W" im zigzag verlaufen und sie sind sehr schwer einzunehmen, da sie sehr wirksam gegen Granatbeschuss schützen. Die Granate muß wirklich auf einen halben Meter genau in den Schützengraben treffen und tötet selbst dann höchstens einen Soldaten. Es ist als nicht leicht schnell vorwärts zu kommen.

        Mr. Omas Bioladen ;
        - Yes, you would also mention the "Maginot Line" - where artillery pieces could be lifted on freight elevators; and where railway lines were laid underground for the transfer of troops and the transport of ammunition!
        - And what else is the use of "hand grenades" in these winding earthen trenches? - Yes, any mortar battery will plow all these winding trenches in such a way that it will not leave anyone alive! - And who will survive in such trenches after artillery fire, which is corrected by simple "spotter drones"? - Damn, you imagine some kind of "war from Tsar Pea" !!! Your presentation of the war is similar to the idea of ​​the war of bygone times!

          Schauen Sie sich die Granat-Krater in den Feldern des Donbass an. Es sieht aus wie die in Verdun vom 1. Weltkrieg. Wie ein schweizer Käse sieht das aus. Es stimmt nicht, daß nur einmal geschossen wird und dann wird mit einer Drohne nachjustiert und ab dann ist jeder Schuß ein Treffer. Ganz im Gegenteil. Von 20 Schuß trifft einer einen Mörser oder Panzer oder in einen Graben. Es ist sehr schwierig solche W-Stellungen zu kancken. Es ist nahezu unmoglich. Das ist die Schwierigkeit.

      And this is a 150-million country with a million-strong army plus "allies" and total superiority in weapons and equipment? "Heroes are forced to appear where stupidity reigns ..." I don't remember who said, but he wasn't.

      Well, so what, the APU shoot better? A common thing if the Western system is used. But this does not mean at all that the Armed Forces of Ukraine can defeat someone. In 41 it was even worse, so what? Now the Russian Federation has an insurance policy - tactical nuclear weapons and strategic nuclear forces. And they will be launched, if anything. No humane arguments will be taken into account. It's all lyrics. The war of destruction has its own laws. Ukraine, the USA and Europe will be destroyed in any case. Either economically or militarily. This is in case Russia's security is not ensured. Because there will be nothing left to lose.

    Nobody wants any decisive defeat with a mass of corpses on both sides, civilian casualties and destruction.
    The Armed Forces of Ukraine are not only the Nazis, this is the whole tragedy of what is happening.

    Now the main driver of the continuation of the war is the Kyiv regime and the United States / England. It will be more and more difficult for them to maintain such a position, criticism is growing. In the US itself, in the EU and in the world. The economic consequences are very serious.

    Do Ukrainians want to break into pieces, but win? This is required by the regime, because it simply has no other options. They promised victory, they say that they are winning, that the Russian Armed Forces were blown away, that Ukraine's losses are minimal - they forced the country to fight with lies and deceit. How much they will be able to maintain faith in victory further is a big question. In the Armed Forces of Ukraine themselves there is an understanding of the reality that they are simply being led to the slaughter for the sake of the regime.

    Zelensky could not even comply with the Minsk agreements, simply withdraw troops away from the Donbass, leave only border guards with small arms there - this alone could be enough to avoid the outbreak of hostilities. But he not only pathetically abandoned Minsk, but also intensified the shelling of Donbass a few days - weeks before the recognition of the republics by Russia. He chose the path of war (not he, of course, but he should answer).

    The war will end with the defeat of the Kyiv regime in the eyes of the Ukrainian public and the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Maybe this is facilitated by the defeat of the drivers of the war in the eyes of the Western and world community. Many are sick of the hypocrisy of the current Western elite, the resistance of industry and everyone who is now really and very heavily losing money and well-being is growing. What does BASF or Siemens care about Zelensky's wishes or Biden's interests (those behind him)?

    The population of the west is suffering from this war. In any case, this is how they are presented with it - you are suffering from the consequences of sanctions against Russia. And more and more people are reasonably asking - what the hell at all? The anti-Russian hysteria in the media is so one-sided and intense that this alone undermines the credibility of the media, intensifies the split in Western societies liberal globalists - conservative nationalists.

      - Ha, yes, if only! - Whence such "optimism"???
      - Poland - it just squeals with impatience and simply "rushes into battle" (and the Polish army is many times more powerful than the Armed Forces of Ukraine - it's not even worth comparing)! - And Poland can easily recruit one and a half to two dozen brigades of "volunteers" - they are already ready, these "mechanized volunteers"! - And not only Poland!
      - And Germany! - Yes, it’s not worth mentioning about the industrial military potential of Germany! - And the Czech Republic - with its first-class industrial weapons! - It is they who are still supplying junk for the Armed Forces of Ukraine - and then the real new will come !!! - And France - which is always ready to betray and become the most ardent active enemy for Russia !!! - Yes, even that same Hungary - they will only "remove" Orban - and thousands of "Hungarian volunteers" will be trampled from Hungary to Ukraine!
      - The worst thing is that they all saw that ... that ... that in real life the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are quite weak (and technically armed with outdated weapons) - after all, even the Armed Forces of Ukraine are fighting with them practically "on equal terms" and even are winning!!!
      - And after the death of the flagship "Moskva" - this whole rabble just revived !!! - And the current situation of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation !!! - To put it mildly - leaves much to be desired!

        There are two differences between Ukrainians and Europe. In the outskirts, we need to preserve the civilian population and the infrastructure of the country, which we will use after the victory, so the operation is similar to cutting out cancerous metastases without damaging a healthy body. And in Europe, we have nothing to save - carpet strikes on cities and villages, no matter who is sitting there, residents or military ... this is now the difficulty - in preserving the population.

        Ira, well, an amazing depth of analysis, but there are small "nuances", the Polish army was always rated lower than the Ukrainian one, and about 4 times in armored objects, 20 percent superior in aviation, inferior in the number of personnel, in addition, the Nazis for 8 years, drove a significant number of military personnel through the Donbass. We will not consider nonsense about European "volunteers" with your permission. Who wanted already there. The Poles really want the territories that were part of the Polish state, but while they are looking around, of course, the Kyiv regime will now take any action on the principle that the Russians don’t “get it”, but here Belarus is against it, their leaders are aware of the activities of Polish concentration camps on the territory Western Ukraine and Belarus in the 20-30s, by the way, its army is slightly inferior to the Poles, mainly in terms of the cost of new weapons.

        Poland's army... Does Poland have an army? When did they fight at all? With whom? No, well, they can break, of course. And what does not get in any way? Something is stopping them ... Is it possible that the nuclear weapons of the Russian Federation?
        As for the "victories" of Ukraine, they have not won anything yet. All victories are only on TV.
        The territory under their control is smaller than at the beginning of the operation and is constantly decreasing. Losses are 10 times more than Russian ones. Less than half of Western weapons reach the troops. There is no place to repair it. And it also tends to end. By the way, if the Czechs knew how to do something worthwhile, they would at least equip their army with this. Which is completely invisible.
        And most importantly. In the event of a threat of defeat to Russia, it will not hesitate to use tactical nuclear weapons, which it has many times more than NATO. After that, the whole war will stop by itself. Well, economically, Europe is not self-sufficient; it will not last long without Russia's resources. And Russia can live on self-sufficiency as long as it wants.

    Why such things are even possible just a few tens of kilometers from Russia, where we have air supremacy, is completely incomprehensible.

    Why is everything so and not otherwise? Because capitalism, happiness, s...s. Thirty years of destroying everything that is ours and turning it into a raw material appendage of the West, a bunch of "reforms" from Yeltsin's - Serdyukov's to pension reforms, as a result of which everything got worse for the people of Russia and better for officials and oligarchs every time, rampant corruption and cutting the budget (some national projects are worth something ), an increase in taxes for ordinary people and financing from the budget of the "needs" of the oligarchs (the very ones whose one yacht costs more than the cruiser "Moskva") at the expense of this very population, thirty years of flirting with the West, in the hope that they will let them at least into the hallway and etc. etc. By the way, for minus people and "dislikes" to use their heads - raise all the actions and words of those who continue to steer the processes in the country - politicians, oligarchs, officials - you will be surprised how interesting everything is. And all this with impunity, from the gangster privatization of the 90s to the placement of gold reserves with opponents. And the characters at the top do not change and only pass on posts and ranks by inheritance to their "talented" sons and other relatives. In the army, after the well-known reforms, when a lot of people "left" and destroyed many military institutes and schools, not the most talented ones (this is about the command staff), but flexible careerists and convenient for the authorities (with rare exceptions) remained in large numbers. So it was in Chechnya, when the army drove the militants into a trap and was ready to begin complete liquidation, and orders came from Moscow to "retreat to their previous positions" and everything started from the beginning. Because it is easier to report and report to officials than to admit to the real state of affairs. The fate of Russia is now in the hands of Russian soldiers and officers fighting the Ukronazis to the death, and not in bureaucratic offices and higher headquarters. And only their military work, valor, steadfastness and selflessness does not allow the West to go on the offensive, and not "cunning plans" and "threats" and "promises" of officials and politicians!

        For some reason, it was the snotty lieutenants who took Berlin, and not the "trained" military personnel of the 30s. Is it because the peacetime army is not intended for war, but for cutting the budget even with a planned economy? Only a real war makes real, not exaggerated military leaders.

        Against the Bandera regime of the Nazis, who destroy both their own population and residential buildings and the entire infrastructure. They understand that they are fighting not only with the soldiers of the Russian Federation and the LDNR, but also with the population, which is traitors to them. They go away and leave nothing but destruction in their wake. Seeing this, the population understands that it will never return to the current Ukraine. And the events in the liberated territories on May 9 are another confirmation of this. Is not it so? And I am sure that it will also be the same on the entire territory of the Left Bank at the beginning of the operation and then on the entire Right Bank at its completion.
        Of course, I am no analyst in comparison with Marzhetsky, and without claiming, I can only assume that back in 14, many young people from these territories left for Russia to avoid being drafted into the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Perhaps they will return to help our troops rid Ukraine of the Nazis together. Again, these are just my guesses.

    The only option for victory is a nuclear strike on the western outskirts. If the mobilization of the ordinary population is planned, then only after a nuclear strike.

Although this is actually true, Mr. Putin publicly called himself a liberal. lol And look how suddenly everything has changed dramatically - the Russian army is already "forced" to retreat and the prospects for war are already vague... Do you remember how it all began? What enthusiastic comments were there that the time had come to wet the "pots", "diggers of the seas" and soon we would hold a parade in Kyiv and listen to Gazmanov's songs, etc. So what? Already in Kyiv? I’m even looking at something here, there’s already less “cheer-quacking”, the “cheer-quacking” are silent (even out there are already squabbling among themselves), because the most stubborn people are slowly starting to get into what kind of shit their beloved genius of multi-movements has dragged the country into, together with his "team" and how it all can end, in fact. The furry animal came, sat down and smiled, looking at Russia. lol

          - Whom are they grinding?? - Did you grind a lot ??? This tongue can grind anything!
          - They came up with a lousy "formulation-cover" - "grind" !!! - And how parrots repeat !!!
          - And how much is left of our original grouping of the RF Armed Forces and the military formations of the LPR and DPR ??? - Khokhlam is constantly replenished; as well as the flow of weapons, fuels and lubricants, new artillery systems, MANPADS, MLRS (and they don’t run out of UAVs at all) and other things !!! - And everyone is mumbling about some kind of "grinding"! - Who, whom and where "grind" and continues to "grind" something ???

            Yeah, the mercenaries are just eager to get under Caliber or Iskander. That is, at first it ran, and now they are already running back.

              - Yes, and "several hundred prisoners daily"! - No - "several thousand prisoners daily" - after all, there are always many times more prisoners than two hundredths !!!
              - You, Mr. Dart2027 - under the impressions of what literary genre are you ??? - Yes, however - this is your own business - only there are also real objective events!

                Not necessary. There may be no prisoners at all, since the destruction is mainly carried out by artillery, missiles and aircraft.

    when ours retreat from Kharkov towards the border, this means that crests are being lured into the open space under the gun of the RF Armed Forces. Mobilization is not needed, we will grind thoroughly and at low speeds)

    350-400. Now about 000 are involved there. Against 220 - 000.
    Regarding the "hostile territory" exaggeration. There has been no guerrilla war yet.

    There have always been doubts about the readiness of our army and navy for a serious war. Recent events have only confirmed this. If professionalism, incompetence, irresponsibility, window dressing and selfish interests reign in the top leadership of the country, its economy, management, then nothing else can be expected from the army. In intelligence, things are also terrible. Even if we didn’t know anything about the state of affairs in Ukraine, its combat readiness, then what can we say about the rest. It turned out to be a complete surprise for us that it turns out that the Bandera people have been preparing for a war with us for eight years. A legitimate question arises, but what have we been doing all this time. With such preparation for the NMD and its plan, with such mediocre generals, entering Ukraine was a gamble. Maybe now it will come to our president that in order to achieve success in any business and undertakings, they should be dealt with by professionals, and not "their" people. No matter how many stars and regalia they have, they will not be of any use. Russia cannot afford to lose this war. Putin must recover from the shock, quickly draw the right conclusions, radically change the approaches to the conduct of this war and make the necessary personnel decisions so that we can win and achieve what we want. The army needs to untie its hands, take off the "white gloves" and start fighting for real. Tough and decisive, not paying attention to what they say in the West.

    Some are fighting, others are very seriously discussing the supply of gas and oil to the West and assuring him that Russia is a reliable partner, they pay Kyiv for transit .... The authorities are still hoping for the mercy of the West ..... Creatures .....

    I used to also think about introducing a large grouping, and a close victory with us. Such warfare is reminiscent of the Great Patriotic War. But the minus in such a war is the lack of mobility due to the presence of a large amount of logistics that needs to be guarded and quickly moved, the rear does not have opportunities, all strikes will be directed primarily at him. It is easy to imagine, according to the wars of the 18-19 centuries, when carts with provisions and ammunition lagged behind hundreds of kilometers. it’s easier there, Ukrainians are unlikely to hide behind their own people. If anyone has traveled to Ukraine, he knows that the Western population is a completely different people. !In the Donetsk direction, the most combative grouping of dill, it will soon be shut down.

    Do not confuse civil war and external aggression. The presence of insane romantics with foreign citizenship in such conflicts does not make such a war an aggression of a foreign state.

    That's just all these "romantics" of yours are now in power in Ukraine.

    In return, let's help Scotland and Ireland separate from petty Britain and create friendly armed forces of independent Republics for them.

      I knew that you would remember the vacuum bomb. Not every strategist is able to pull this contraption weighing 10 tons. Highly dependent on the weather, produced in piece quantities and cost a lot of money. At the same time, the power of the Russian dad-bomb is 44 tons of TNT. The Russian 152 mm 3bv3 nuclear projectile has a yield of 1 kiloton and weighs 50 kg. It is unlikely that you will find a tactical nuclear weapon with a yield of less than 0,1 kiloton. And I think strategic ones start at 100 kilotons. In short, it's all nonsense.
      You didn't answer the main question
