    And where is the air defense? Sleeping again? This is not a Chinese deshman 30x30cm in size. How can you not notice on the radar an almost full-fledged aircraft with a wingspan of 5m? 25 kilos of TNT is quite nothing for an explosive enterprise. How much can you dance on a rake?

      Right. And Novoshakhtinsk is not Donetsk. And, the Rostov region is not even included in the yellow threat level + the number of military units and facilities in the Rostov region is more than ... How else have they not flown from airfields ... Is it because everything is so that "decision-making centers" are bombed only politicians and officials on paper and microphones?! And instead of security, the governor and officials "cut" the budget for refugees from the Donbass?

      12.50 Summary analysis of military correspondents and experts of the situation with the Novoshakhtinsk refinery:

      - The Armed Forces of Ukraine demonstrated the possibility of delivering successful strikes against Russia's critical infrastructure, and it cannot be said that this strike was unexpected, during the months of daily strikes on the border areas, the enemy not only studied, but also studied the Russian side, collecting information and real opportunities for a real strike;

      - do not think that this is the pinnacle of Ukraine's capabilities, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have loitering ammunition, Turkish-made medium strike UAVs, their own developments, the issue of transferring heavy strike systems, such as the MQ-1C Gray Eagle, is at the negotiation stage;

      - Russia can respond primarily by destroying the military potential of Ukraine and tightly protecting critical infrastructure, but one should not overestimate the capabilities of this protection, electronic warfare systems are not a panacea, plus their capabilities cannot be fully used on the territory with civilian objects, to fully control all air space is impossible;

      - Russian defense is able to repel one, two, three threats to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but what will happen in the implementation of a complex operation that includes strikes by UAVs, guided missiles, loitering ammunition, and the actions of sabotage groups?

      - the main intelligence department of Ukraine sends sabotage groups to Russian territory almost on a daily basis, and this creates an acute danger to all strategic infrastructure facilities in order to hit a nuclear power plant, it is not necessary to use a heavy UAV with guided missiles, a swarm of drones or a launch of guided / unguided missiles from pickup truck

      - The Armed Forces of Ukraine showed that they carefully studied the experience of international terrorists and the Syrian conflict in general, probably the teachers were the same.

      in the meantime, the court and the case:

      13.30 Briefing by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov, the main thing:
      — the authorities of the Russian Federation are convinced that the restriction on transit to Kaliningrad through the territory of Lithuania is contrary to the fundamental documents;
      - there is no set form for responding to the transit blockade of Kaliningrad, the main thing is to respond to such unfriendly steps, and not meet the deadlines;
      - Concrete options for responding to the restriction of transit to Kaliningrad are still being discussed, various measures are being considered;
      - with a question about the details of the negotiations between the delegations of the defense departments of the Russian Federation and Turkey on the export of Ukrainian grain, you should contact the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation;
      — The Kremlin is unaware of the idea to revive the Hero City title and assign it to Donetsk.

      I don’t know anything, I don’t see anything, I won’t say anything - the mustache of the Kremlin is in my repertoire.
      they also "do not have a given form to respond to the transit blockade of Kaliningrad" and to prevent strikes on the territory of Russia, it seems that there is none either. Instead of actions, only words, "discussions and considerations." Hence the complete impunity of the Ukronazis.

        The Russian army is heroically fighting the Nazis, and officials and politicians are pouring water on the enemy’s mill, and with their irresponsibility, inactivity, ignorance, and perhaps simply betrayal ?!

    Normal educated leaders with an educated parliament, after such an attack on their territory, declare war on the state that struck. But where can we find educated people in our government? Some hucksters! They only know how to trade their Motherland.

        Underestimating the strength of the enemy does more harm than overestimating. In vain you speak derogatoryly about the scientific and industrial potential of Ukraine.

        Firstly, on the side of Ukraine, the best developments of NATO countries (and they themselves are not fools).
        Secondly - in business, psychological relaxation, "safe direction". This is inherent in the military of all countries of the world, regardless of nationality. Naturally, now the "tail will be twisted" and for some time, vigilance will increase ...

          What kind of relax? they flew over the territory of Donbass, but there is no relaxation there. There is simply a reality, but there is a "declared superiority" of air defense (in general). + The human factor - from simple sloppiness to betrayal. And by the way, on the territory of the NMD, both drones and hail shells and planes are shot down, but here .... As if someone turned on the green light at a traffic light for enemy drones. But the officials are eternally relaxed and it seems that Golubev will not get anything for this, as always. Not the first time.

    Again, our air defense forces missed the Ukrainian UAV, they are shot down in batches at the front, but they cannot see and destroy over their territory, there is no full coverage of the radar, which means we urgently need to correct the situation and close the holes that are still in our sky.

    Oh, shoulder straps will fly. Like foliage in the autumn forest. Yes, and right. Dryndulet flying at a low understandable height flew and rattled, judging by the video, for the entire district .. Create air defense posts from personnel with MANPADS. If there are problems with detection. Like in World War II. Two or three people each. With not even good eyesight. Hearing. And what to do.

    This means that air defense is like a patchwork quilt - there is no continuous protection even in the most dangerous direction today - the western one, which means that the story of Matthias Rust may repeat itself
