    Supposedly the Russians can’t do much at night since they don’t have night vision technology. There’s also reports of them being short on diesel for the tanks. Supply chain is lagging.

      "(Internet) amateurs talk tactics, professionals talk logistics" so the saying goes on those forums. A Ukrainian guy driving by a stranded Russian armored fighting vehicle made a video of him asking a Russian AFV crew, who'd run out of fuel, if they'd "like a tow back to Russia?" The crewmen laughed...

      In the viral clip shared across social media, the Ukrainian driver rolls down his window before jokingly offering to tow the troops back to Russia, prompting roars of laughter from all involved.


      The above link cites Ukrainian military intelligence sources as claiming Putin's War is costing about $15-20 billon a day and that they are running low on ammunition...

                The problem with Russia is you have a HUGE country full of nuclear weapons. Someone has to hold that together and keep those weapons secure. Putin was tolerated because he was useful in that role. We took the USSR down by inflating the ruble and dropping oil prices. We broke their back that way. We have kept Putin in check with oil prices. Cutting production here only helped Russia. Their economy is energy.

                Anyways it's impossible to make any assessment of what's going on and why because so many players have been using that region for nefarious activity. Anyways there are power grabs from various angles right now. Saying it's Russia vs Ukraine is too simple.

                  Anyone getting their information from the news media or the internet doesn’t have enough information on this complicated situation to know what’s really going on. We are dealing with corrupt governments including ours. We are dealing with a failing fiat monetary system that’s all tied through a central banking system. We are dealing with a lot of world changing dynamics at once.

                  Such a situation raises the probability of a nuclear fuckup. That’s the biggest danger. When things snowballed before you got a world war using kinetic warfare. Today you get nuclear warfare.

                  When you have leaders with little brains and lot’s of bravado and political structures that exist in pampered bubbles, fuckups are the norm as well demonstrated. We keep fucking up we get the final fuckup. Maybe that’s how Darwin works.

                      It turns out Russia's much-vaunted military is a paper tiger that's poorly trained with incompetent leadership.

                        Not only that he has also ended the Russian central bank by raising interest rates to 20%. Even the Moscow stock exchange closed for today (there is question if it will ever reopen) as Russia's biggest bank is on the brink of collapse as savers rushed to withdraw their deposits and now the Ruble lost 20% of its value. Putin may end up starving his own people to death.

                          Just saw on the corporate machine media "news" that the Ukrainian Army is using these NLAW missiles made by the car company Saab (who knew they were also a weapons manufacturer?) that once they hit a Russian tank or vehicle they will blow the turret right off a tank and turn it in to a Roman candle. And now massive shipments of Javelin and Stinger missiles now being shipped in to Ukraine with Russia's economy on verge of collapse. This isn't going to end well at all.


                          Putin really fucked this up.

                              Putin came to power in 1999 on a wave of so-called "Chechen terror bombings" as a law-&-order ex-KGB strongman, and then invaded Chechnya in the 2nd War in one of the most ruthless campaigns Europe has seen since the Nazis ran across the USSR. It came to light that the apartment bombings that killed over 300 could not have been engineered by the Chechens and that it made no sense for them to as they had initially won the 1996 war. They used powerful Russian military explosives and FSB (Russian FBI) agents were discovered planting these bombs in another building, then claimed it was only an exercise.

                              Putin is a psychotic cunt that very possibly murdered his own people in a false-flag operation so he could justify massacring large numbers of Chechen civilians and return Russia to "Soviet greatness".

                              He's a fucking cunt and the sooner the coup happens the better...

                                Mask mandates were falling with hospitalization rates before the invasion on the 24th so just fucking nonsense. Also worth mentioning is that Russia has one of the highest Covid death toll despite having their own effective "Sputnik Vaccine". It seems the "Fancy Bear" supported antivaxx propaganda boomeranged on Putin...

                                This bleak demographic forecast became even more dire with the arrival of COVID-19. The Kremlin’s initial dismissal of COVID-19 and efforts to spread vaccine disinformation across the West appear to have backfired on its own population, resulting in a vaccination rate that ranks as one of the lowest in the developed world. Low vaccination uptake, coupled with a laissez faire approach to COVID-19 and weak health care system, have contributed to one of the world’s highest COVID-19 fatality rates. Russia’s government counts around 300,000 deaths, but a more reliable estimate from the Economist puts the figure at 1 million, giving Russia the dubious distinction of having more COVID-10 deaths per capita than any other country except Bulgaria. Russia’s recent population decline predates COVID-19, but the pandemic has done much to exacerbate it.
