There are an awful lot of russians who are going to be conscripted here without much military training etc and could see a very sorry end. While Russia are obviously the aggressors here you really wouldn't want to be a Russian citizen at all and would have to feel for some. It can't be a good place to be.

The traffic jam at the border with Russia/Finland has pilled up to 35KM and is rising by the hour, it is the only border who is still open for Russian civilians with shengen visas, after Putin announced he will send 300.000 new troops to Ukraine.

Sure in WW2 they fired then into the front line with no training at all, big reason Russia lost 27million, Germany supposely lost the battle of Kursk even though the casualties rate was 6:1, and tanks lost averaged 9:1 in Germany favour. The landings at Anzio was the reason the Germans withdrew. You can't throw men running into a mg34/42 machine gun, Russia done just that. War changed alot, air power still king, but Artillery got bigger, drone strikes, anti tank weapons have make the day of the tank redundant.

The Germans lost the war in Stalingrad and they also ran out of petrol.

Iím amazed how the Russians didnít gain air supremacy and then they could essentially have done what they wanted.  Surely they have the aircraft numbers to squash the Ukraine airforce, but they seem more interested in blundering forward and back with their artillery. It puzzles me.

Fantastic work,  how about
a great season for a vacation in Mongolia? https://twitter.com/i/status/1572820087802839040
Going either to Georgia or to Armenia?  https://twitter.com/rajdianos/status/1573090392039641088?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Here's a former Z Warrior  fleeing the scene
A massive gathering of vehicles with "Z" signs was spotted near the Russian border. But there is one nuance...

In contrast, this is Kiev 2014, Ukrainian citizens on street protests overthrowing their kremlin toxified government, robot cops being battered off the streets with an intensity.

That's what's called true resilience to corrupt governance.

The Russian air force looks impressive, has some tasty machines,  but isn't a 'holistic' project, it's plagued by bits that don't work.
For example a  long range missile launcher won't work because the long range detector technology is defunct therefore the fighter plane has to get up close and personal to launch rocket with any degree of accuracy, risking detection and destruction.The Russ air force are extra wary of losing their precious machines, that's one explanation for their absence in battle.

The other day, the  UAF report
Ukrainian Air Force carries out 41 air raids on Russian positions in past 24 hours - General Staff . The attacks hit 21 areas of Russian troops and equipment concentration, 4 strongholds, 15 positions of anti-aircraft missile systems, as per the Staff  https://tinyurl.com/35t5sw63

How was that possible?  15 positions of anti-aircraft missile systems being hit ?
because the UKR Sukhois and MiGs are now equipped with USAF anti-radar missiles and these are lethal.

Tough talk from Ursula. Interesting as most of the twitter halfwits think it was the Americans who are responsible.

There are MEPs thanking America.
Americans had a military presence along the line in the days leading up to it.
Biden had said they would bring an end to it.

Aren't you just a teency bit curious?  ;D

It's not beyond the Americans and it's hard to see why the Russians would have sabotaged their own pipeline...

Maybe it's because Biden said at the start of the year that they would take it out.

Oh I think the Americans are more than capable of carrying out such an action, it's the Russian reaction (or lack of) that makes me think the Americans didn't on this occasion tho.
