Moscow's lack of response to HIMARS deliveries will create more serious problems

The issue of supplying Kyiv with American long-range MLRS, which was so vividly discussed in the Russian information space even when the US only expressed the corresponding intentions, has already moved from a theoretical plane to a purely practical one. HIMARS and MLRS M270 have already added to the arsenals of the Ukronazis along with other deadly "iron" received from "partners" from the West, and began to do their dirty work, inflicting ruthless blows on their intended targets. First of all, on peaceful settlements in the territories previously liberated by the Russian Armed Forces in the Donbass.

Today, the question is rather not whether the APU will receive even more powerful and precision-guided munitions from the Americans, capable of hitting not 70-80 kilometers, but all 300, but when exactly this will happen. In any case, Kyiv openly expresses confidence that events will develop precisely in this scenario. Alas, based on the current actions of Washington and the rhetoric of its high-ranking representatives, this is not empty boasting. The United States will continue not only to continue, but also to increase its military support for the “non-secure” one. And, if the supply of its HIMARS-class weapons does not become the frontier, which will be followed by the most decisive and tough reaction from Russia, in the future the forces conducting the NMD will face much more serious problems than today.

Washington and Kyiv - "complete understanding"

In this text, I will not touch on purely technical problems and issues of confronting the MLRS delivered from the United States - let's leave this moment to competent military experts and focus on the other side of the problem. Initially, some in Russia pinned their hopes on the fact that across the ocean they would beware of giving such serious weapons into the clutches of the Ukronazis for fear of causing a corresponding “response” from the Russian side. Like, this will be “a step towards escalation, fraught with direct involvement of the United States in the conflict,” must Washington understand this? It seems that from everything that has happened since the beginning of the NMD, and especially since the West began to provide Ukraine with full-scale military support, including the supply of heavy weapons, they drew completely different conclusions. And it cannot be said that the star-striped bastards did not have any reason for this at all.

All warnings regarding the destruction of convoys from the NATO military technique and the "forceful" suppression of its transfer to the territory of the "nezalezhnaya" turned out to be exactly the same category as the threats about "strike on the decision-making centers." It's an uncomfortable truth, but it's true. Today it becomes clear that initially the MLRS were supplied exclusively with “limited range” ammunition, it was only a “trial balloon”, a test of Moscow's reaction to these, already unacceptable actions in themselves. Such, in fact, did not follow. HIMARS inflicted a series of extremely painful blows for the Liberation Forces - on Nova Kakhovka, Lugansk, and other places. And again, the arrival of "Caliber" did not happen either in the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, and even more so in the Pentagon, which is fully responsible for these barbaric raids.

What's next? And let's ask the head of the military department "nezalezhnoy" Alexei Reznikov about this. The day before, in an interview with the Financial Times, he bluntly stated that Ukraine would soon receive HIMARS ammunition capable of hitting 300 kilometers. Literally it sounded like this:

I think it's a phased movement. We give them proof that we can use HIMARS with precision and we'll get even more and more range. As a result, already this year we will see a counter-offensive campaign and that it will be successful.

At the same time, Reznikov did not fail to boast that Ukraine has used HIMARS over the past three weeks to strike Russian ammunition depots far behind the front line, "damaging Russia's artillery vehicle." However, another interview of this figure is of much greater interest, in which he elaborated on the issue of Kyiv's obligations "not to use American MLRS to destroy targets on Russian territory." Here, right, it is worth quoting again verbatim:

We pledged that we would not use high-precision weapons against Russian facilities on the territory of the Russian Federation. We showed this everywhere, even I personally did this in a letter addressed to my colleague, the head of the Pentagon, that we will use American weapons to deter the enemy and de-occupy temporarily occupied lands only on the territory of Ukraine.

But the most interesting thing came next - as the minister's answer to the question of whether the obligation of the Ukrainian side extends to Crimea:

I told US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin that we have enough strategic facilities in Russian-occupied Ukrainian territories. To which he replied: “We understand you!”

How would you interpret this passage? And interpret it how you want. To the extent of their own imagination and a penchant for realism.

Isn't it time to start in earnest?

Perhaps the memory of how many times the intentions to strike at the Crimean bridge, the Russian Black Sea Fleet in the bays of its base (specifically, in Sevastopol) and other objects on the territory of the peninsula has already been voiced in the “non-destructive” one will help you in this. You can write it off as much as you like on the meaningless chatter of couch “military experts” and retired warriors who are not related to making real decisions, but is it worth it to engage in complacency? Ideas, as they say, are in the air. And, besides, why would Pan Reznikov be so impatient to get ammunition with a range of 300 kilometers? Until the Kherson region or the same Donbass HIMARS, alas, they get it anyway. At least for now. And what about long distances? That's right, the territories of Russia, including Crimea, of course, on the issue of which Kyiv and the Pentagon have that very touching "mutual understanding" that was mentioned above. The fact that Reznikov's rantings about the upcoming "increase in range", unfortunately, are not just empty dreams, makes us believe a number of other statements that have been made recently. For example, Fyodor Venislavsky, a member of the Ukrainian parliamentary committee on national security and defense, said bluntly:

At all levels, our state is negotiating with US representatives on the need to provide us with longer-range missiles for HIMARS. I think that there is every chance to break through this and get long-range missiles ...

And the American edition of the Financial Times a week ago published an article in which, citing a certain "high-ranking representative of the Pentagon", he said that the new HIMARS MLRS, which will soon be delivered to Ukraine, "shoot even farther and have greater accuracy than previously transferred samples" . Most likely. in this case, we are talking about the type of ammunition that Kyiv is so eager to get.

For what kind of purposes and where the “arrivals” will follow, after that you can guess until you are blue in the face. However, does it make sense to do this in principle? There is no doubt about one thing - a sharp increase in the capabilities of the MLRS will be used by the Ukronazis not at all for counter-battery combat, but for organizing a new wave of terror against the civilian population and destroying civilian objects. However, this is only part of a much larger problem. When this article was being prepared, it became known that the US House of Representatives approved amendments to the military budget, providing for the allocation of $ 100 million for the training of Ukrainian military pilots on American aircraft (in particular, F-15 and F-16). Let me remind you that the relevant bill was registered in Congress at the end of June. It was introduced by a member of the US House of Representatives from the Republican Party, US Air Force veteran Adam Kinzinger. And now this initiative has quite successfully passed the vote. What is fraught with such a step in the future, I think, there is no need to explain.

The Americans are pragmatic people, if they decide to invest a hundred million in the training of pilots, therefore, the supply of appropriate fourth-generation fighters to Ukraine is not far off. At the same time, it is not at all necessary that Ukrainian pilots, allegedly trained in the United States, will actually sit at their helms. Given the cost of these machines, they are more likely to be trusted by their “retirees” with solid experience. However, all this is particular. I will again leave it to “specially trained people” who understand this more than I do to make predictions about how the course of the NMD can be affected by the appearance of such a class of military aviation in its theater. In any case, this will create more than enough problems for the Liberation Forces.

In a recent, highly publicized speech about a special military operation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that "Russia hasn't started anything in earnest yet." So isn't it time to start? Isn't it time to finally understand that all hopes that overseas will come to their senses, "let go" and stop pumping the "nezalezhnaya" with more and more modern, perfect and deadly weapons, are nothing more than an extremely harmful and dangerous delusion. An exhaustive answer to them can be a statement made by a Pentagon representative at an official briefing held in this department on July 9:

The main thing is that the Russians know that the Ukrainians will be able to continue the fight. If the Russians think they can outlive the Ukrainians, then they need to rethink that. We are already thinking about what Ukrainians will need in the coming months and years...

Years! This is how long the United States expects to prolong the agony of the Kyiv regime and the bloodshed on Ukrainian soil. During such a period, it is indeed possible to train pilots and train missilemen, and, most importantly, equip them with the appropriate equipment. If the supply of American weapons, which pose an increased danger to Russia, is not put an end to, without any hesitation in the means and methods, MLRS with long-range ammunition will be followed by fighters, and after them ... Tomahawk cruise missiles? Why not? In Ukraine, they are already saying with might and main that only with their help “can Moscow be forced to abandon the strikes with Kalibr”. Do not believe in the possibility of this? Well, the prospect of supplying HIMARS APUs also seemed fantastic to many ...

        What does "how can" mean? The task has been set and completed. How Ukraine knows how to fight, that's why there are such big losses. The "Ukraine" test site needs to be moved to NATO territory, the easiest way to do this is in Syria, to create a "Turkey" test site. You just need to ask the Turkish "friends" to leave Idlib. If the request is not complied with force of arms. America will be on the sidelines, its task is to steal oil, so there will be no war with Russia in Syria because of Turkey, there will be no time to steal oil, and you can get it in such a way that it doesn’t seem like it, the Turks have already experienced.

Today, circumstances are being created for another defeat from the united West, the eternal enemy of Russia.

If this assistance is not blocked, the questions and conclusions will become not unpleasant, but ominous for the ongoing NWO. Today, the most important thing is to cut off military and other assistance to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, this must be done very harshly, up to an instant shutdown of energy supplies and other things, to a special operation in the West on the most painful points - there is a real WAR and the West has publicly announced that Russia must lose in confrontation with the Ukrainian regime ...

          Economically and militarily, the USSR could. But the current "masters of life", no.

          Report of the Bank of Russia "Regional economy: comments of the GU":
          - At the end of June, about a third of enterprises indicated a lower than usual level of stocks of finished products.

          - A number of enterprises express concerns about the prospects for the further operation of imported equipment, the supply of spare parts and maintenance of which have been discontinued.

          — Among manufacturers of investment goods with imported components, the situation with supplies is the most difficult, only 10% of enterprises were able to retain their former foreign suppliers. Most of those who have problems with foreign supplies have not yet been able to solve them.

          — Due to lower demand, manufacturers of building materials accumulated stocks of finished products.

          — Producers of meat and dairy products have increased the share of low-price products in their assortment.

          — The absence of anchor tenants still negatively affects the operation of shopping centers, especially large ones. Trade center attendance remains low.

          - In the housing market, prices fell or remained unchanged due to reduced demand

          translated into simple language: The term "investment goods" means the means of production, and given the complete absence of domestic electronics, bearings and a number of other critical components, it's just seams. Soon there will be nothing to produce import substitution, and foreign equipment will finally fail. The process of destruction of the industry is rapidly gaining momentum.

          Producers of food and consumer goods, due to the decrease in the solvency of the population, are forced to switch to the production of low-grade surrogates. Insanely expensive building materials no one buys, because there is nothing. As well as real estate. Trade in non-food products as a whole freezes, huge malls are empty with no prospects of getting new rich tenants.

          Further in the report "people's part":

          — Consumer demand continued to shift to the low price segment.

          - Part of the population reoriented to the products of personal subsidiary plots.

          - The population of the country, adapting to the past economic events, chooses a savings strategy, reducing current consumption.

          — A high level of unanchored inflation expectations limits the sustainability of the savings behavior of the population.

          — Demand for non-food products has significantly decreased in the structure of consumption.

          — The desire for savings is shifting food consumption to the budget segment.

          “Consumers are looking to keep their current appliances running and extend their lifespan, increasing the popularity of appliance repair services. Such demand has grown, according to Avito Services, by 43% compared to the same period last year.

          With an excess of food in the Russian Federation, Russian people begin to eat outright ersatz, since there is no longer any money for normal products. There is no money for clothes, for household appliances, as before, personal "six acres" help out. There is no point in saving, everything will be devoured by inflation, so people spend everything they earn. Who has something to spend. In general, consumption is falling rapidly.
          The picture is drawn quite honestly, and it does not reveal any positive trends. The Russian economy is diving at an increasing speed and, as experts have repeatedly warned
          The complete absence of a reindustrialization policy. Four and a half months have passed since the beginning of the special operation, but there is no progress in terms of building new plants and factories. Officials, as before, puff out their cheeks and make all sorts of important statements, but de facto nothing happens. Absolutely. The authorities have even stopped talking about building a new economy, about this very reindustrialization and technological independence of our country. Exactly the same as in 2014, all import substitution was quickly screwed up, only much faster.

          “In order for industry to develop, energy, raw materials and land must be costed to producers at cost. Each ruble of profits of natural monopolies is from three to six rubles of losses for the economy as a whole. All raw material industries should work "to zero", for the economy of the country as a whole, and not for the yachts of the oligarchs. That is, they should be nationalized. Gently, without any confiscations. You just have to count. For example, at least half of the profits should be directed to the development of the company. And our largest "metallurgists" - Abramovich, Lisin and Mordashov - invest only a quarter. So let's calculate who owes whom”, State Duma Deputy, Doctor of Economics Mikhail Delyagin.

          “There has been a more than fourfold decrease in import supplies to Russia against the backdrop of a rapid growth in export supplies of energy resources to the European Union. The picture is very asymmetrical, in fact, it is a one-way street. In the conditions of the sanctions war, Russia is making very strange gestures - it is increasing the export of energy resources and other vital goods. And, at the same time, they are reducing the supply of vital goods to us, ”- Doctor of Economics Valentin Katasonov.

          Huge money in "bad" currency is again accumulating in foreign accounts, in fact, the Russian Federation gives oil, gas, metals, food and other raw materials to "general people" for free. So, yesterday sunflower oil export quotas were again increased by 400 tons. Meanwhile, over the past month, this product on the shelves of Russian stores has again risen in price.
          The economy of our country is not developing, the people are impoverished, which, in fact, is stated by the Central Bank.

          Putin announced modest results of Rostec digital projects
          Projects for the development of end-to-end digital technologies, for which the state corporation Rostec is responsible, have shown modest results.

          that in translation from the official - nothing has been done.

          I think that in the light of the facts presented, comments about the "economic victory" and not only are unnecessary.

        You can demand, but not everything is so smooth.

        The head of the Defense Ministry, Shoigu, ordered the Vostok group to hit long-range weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, during an inspection of the Vostok group performing tasks in Ukraine, said that the priority is the destruction of long-range weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
        Sergey Kuzhugetovich put priority on hitting long-range weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, “of which residential areas of Donbas settlements are being shelled and wheat fields and grain storage facilities are being deliberately set on fire.” RIA Novosti

        The words are correct, but ... are we hitting the "tails" again? Was there an order to prevent and prevent these funds from entering the territory of Ukraine? Why, then, and a piece of iron and roads and border checkpoints, etc. intact? Why did the funds cross the borders, I remember both Shoigu and Lavrov earlier threatened that all this equipment, as soon as it crossed the border, would become the legitimate prey of the Russian army ?! There are no questions for the army - it does what is possible, and clearly, but the tops are engaged in "verbiage" and "beating tails", talking about "today" when it was necessary "yesterday".
        We will not even mention the notorious strikes on the centers. Not a single high-ranking figure in the Kyiv elite received in full. Not a single one was eliminated, neither by the "arrival" of Caliber, nor by the actions of the special forces. No one.
        And, it is always easier to put out a fire when the fire is just starting to smolder than when everything is blazing.

        The United States wants to supply Estonia with ATACMS missiles so that the Russians will not have a chance to turn St. Petersburg into Donetsk.

      You are like that man who is against such power if he does not participate in it. With his participation, this power is as it should be. Without a password, do not rock the boat. There is no password! There was one such American whom the authorities disliked, after all, he wrote - America does everything right, and the rest interfere. And they thought he was against the US.

    The meaning of the article is clear, with each subsequent delivery, the United States improves the strength, power, and accuracy of the supplied weapons. In response, Russia only shows its concern and puffs out its cheeks. So the United States decided to put their long-range MLRS in Estonia, not in Latvia or Lithuania, but in Estonia. What for? These missiles will completely cover St. Petersburg. And who told you that at one fine moment these HIMARS will not be replaced by simple ones with nuclear warheads? It follows from everything that the United States understood that Russia is simply “afraid” and every time it becomes more and more impudent. I won’t be surprised that after some time the United States can supply Ukraine with F-16, F-15 aircraft with missiles with a range of 1000 km. So what are we waiting for, I just want to ask this question to the Security Council of Russia.

    The author agrees with you! So isn't it time to get started! Enough already to show all sorts of "gestures of good will"! It's time to bomb the enemy into the ground up to his ears! Otherwise, the F-15 and F-16 will indeed appear after the ATACMS missiles, followed by the Tomahawk cruise missiles! And we will sit and "express concern"!

    Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that "Russia has not started anything in earnest yet." So isn't it time to start?

    There is a process of demilitarization not only of Ukraine but also of NATO. I see it this way - that ours are taking equivalent steps and waiting for the mistakes of partners. Whether they want a hot phase of their own on their territory is up to them to decide.

    There is a lot of Odessa noise regarding the Russian army, HIMARS and MLRS M270 appeared piece by piece and the Russian Federation already has problems, and if the deliveries are in the thousands. The leadership is looking for ways to conclude a peace treaty on any terms, so long as the "elite" saves its own skin. In such a situation, what can one strive for?
