Russian State TV Says Ukraine War Is 'Rehearsal' for Conflict with NATO

That is like getting slapped by Will Smith and saying "that was just a rehearsal for my upcoming fight with Mike Tyson".
----------------------------
Was just thinking, wouldn't it be hilarious if some operatives bribed russian soldiers to send by train a wagon full of explosives (labeled as "Ukrainian grain) to blow up the crimean bridge? Yeah, I know, too hollywood, but after 9/11 we can't simply dismiss this kind of plans

I'm starting to think that Russia had astronomical losses in WW2, simply because they had an unnecessarily bad strategy

And they haven't really changed their mentality

Angry Boi: YOU BITCH!

Cameraman [to Angry Boi]: F-ing chill, bro.

Cameraman [to POW]: I'm Russian, you know. He's Russian too. Are you trying to imply we are nazis?..

Angry Boi: ARE YOU RUSSIAN?!

I got a gut feeling that putin's army is going to collapse before next June ends. This is not wishful thinking, it would be better if Ukraine takes back their territory in bits & bites, putin might do something really stupid, but it will all his fault since there is a limit at how hard you can push an army before morale reaches 0. Also, running out of supplies might be more demoralizing than war itself.

I can't find it in any reputable news channel, but here it is:

Another loss from the Russian navy: Rasul Gamzatov

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgiYM84rTpo

If true then it would mean the plan B to bring new navy vessels to the Azov sea from the Karelia Oblast has backfired due to haste.

Also, I heard in another video that there seems to be a plan to attack Odessa "soon", if true it means putin wants to made Ukraine landlocked (and add transnistria to the fray).

Putin’s Own Men Are Already Discussing Who Will Replace Him:

This is utterly pointless. If putin died tomorrow (of disease, assassination or freak accident) that does not change the fact that in the russian circle of power are only like minded individuals. Just the same as the death of Fidel Castro did not bring democracy or any other western values into Cuba, whoever takes putin's place will be no different.

Therefore, western sanctions will continue since putin has already played the "new world order" card and no western nation wants to give russia a chance of rebuilding their military so they can try again in one or two decades, since they might not make the same mistakes next time.

Looks like CBS' FBI Most Wanted's season finale is now poking at the Russo-Ukrainian War and the oligarchs.

I think you should streamline them a bit. Advancements in the battlefield are slow now and sadly the situation has settled into a new normal:

1) Russian forces committing war crimes and doing anything they can to russify Ukraine.
2) Europe giving weapons and financial aid to Ukraine, but the effects will be felt in weeks or months.
3) putin applying pressure to divide the west however he can, cutting energy to European countries, blocking the Odessa port to prevent grains exports and maybe as the climate gets warmer, maybe even bring middle east people with the planes they have stolen to attempt to enter the EU.
4) Tales of how demoralized, under-qualified and under-supplied the russian army is and how underestimated, over-performing and pumped up the Ukranian army is.
5) Western sanctions slowly but surely devastating the russian economy, sooner or later the borders will be closed again to prevent russians from emigrating.

That is not to say there wont be nothing newsworthy, but imo we have reached the stage of news fatigue, where most news outlet have stopped placing the Ukraine invasion in their headers everyday.

Please don't introduce line breaks every 48 characters (are you doing that manually, or is some browser plugin doing it?), it makes your posts significantly harder to read. Perhaps also consider enclosing them in a collapsible tag so we don't have to scroll so far down to read the other replies, and occasionally, it'd be good to hear your own thoughts on things rather than just see articles. Beyond this, I've no objections!

Interesting interview from a Russian tabloid with a Russian tanker who fought in Ukraine. He said they removed the roof screens because they obstructed the use of their machine guns and radios and made it difficult to quickly dismount in case of a fire.
Quote:
He said the Ukrainians don't have a large military but they are experienced and have an advantage in UAVs, mortars, ATGMs, thermal optics, and communications (he mentions Starlink). He also said they had good intelligence from the US and from Ukrainian civilians sharing info. 2/
Quote:
He also said many Ukrainian positions are equipped with cameras, which were used to locate/track Russian units. He said Ukrainian forces use thermal optics or UAVs to locate Russian units, then share that info digitally on tablets, and then quickly target them with mortars. 3/
Quote:
"We didn't have that." Notably, Russian Strelets-M systems are supposed to have some of these functions, so it isn't clear whether his unit lacked them or if they weren't effective. Strelets-M systems have been captured by Ukrainian forces. 4/
Quote:
He said Ukraine fought with 10-man teams that employed recon-sabotage group tactics. They would occupy positions in forests/tree lines and change everyday. He said all of the fights happened at distances of more than 4km. He fought in Kharkiv so other areas might be different. 5/
Quote:
He said thermal optics are critical and that reactive armor on tanks was very effective. He said the thermal imager on his T-72B3 tank played a key role during a battle near Kamyanka on March 25 because he could see Ukrainian troops through a fog but they couldn't see him. 6/
Quote:
He claims that he observed 10 Javelin ATGM strikes on Russian tanks and only one led to a K-kill. He said he and other tankers were given concussions from Javelin strikes though. When he was injured he said he was ground CASEVACED and then flown from Izyum to Belgorod by helo. 7/
Quote:
The tanker, Captain Alexey Ukhachyov, was sent back to Ukraine after recovering and was killed on May 10 in Balakliya by a Tochka-U tactical ballistic missile. The author of the article said his earnings from the article would be spent on buying UAVs for Russian troops. 8/
