On May 24, 2023, the Russian Ministry of Defence released a video of USVs attacking the Russian intelligence ship Ivan Hurs.
Patriots fired like 20 or 30 2-4 million dollar SAMs until we saw those 2 bright flashes I take it that you also believe that klitchko is taller than a kinzhal missile as well lol. I dont know if the patriots is operational or not but if those 2 bright flashes were from Kinzhal, than kinzhal missiles have enough warhead weight and speed to leave a giant crater, I think western media went from Patriots intercepted everything to it got "damaged" reports when people began talking about the bright flashes of the location of the SAMs after they fired all their missiles. Speaking of tanks, Ukraine was promised like 100 tanks from the west and it is now questionable rather or not if all would be delivered. Wagner must have destroyed alot Ukrainian equipment to take Bakhmut than the AFU capturing Bakhmut. Russia is ramping up artillery production, the latest package deals Ukraine received is laughable.Lol Patriot has performed incredibly well. You notice how there has been a near 100% interception in the Kyiv region as of late? Patriot is the primary reason for that. Also, it was responsible for part of the disaster that was 4 Russian aircraft getting smoked in the Bryansk region a few days ago. With so few launchers in theatre, Patriot is performing exactly as expected.
Let me ask you this. Why is Ukraine able to strike Russian rear positions with soon-to-be retired Storm Shadow missiles, with impunity. Where are the vaunted S-300 and S-400 air defense systems to shoot those old cruise missiles down?
Also, if you don't understand how Wagner getting bogged down in Bakhmut for 8+ months, chewing through valuable equipment and ammunition, isn't a major problem, I can't help you. And no, Wagner is not the only Russian force fighting in and around the city. The regular army has been and continues to be, responsible for flanks of the city. Ukraine has made greater advancement on the flanks of Bakhmut in one week, than Wagner did in the city itself, in 4 months. Wagner is exhausted and badly needs to re-fit and be resupplied. Given that they are Russia's only capable offensive force, their losses in Bakhmut and Ukraine's 8+ month stand, will be one of the most significant events in the war, when all is said and done.
The West just keeps on boiling the frog that is Russia. As Russian supplies dwindle and they start pulling T-62s and T-55s out of storage, the West is enhancing supply chains and making major investments in their own industry, to ensure that Ukraine has what it needs to repel the Russians. It's only getting worse for Russia, as they continue to lose irreplaceable systems, pilots and leadership, while previously neutral countries like Japan, South Korea and Switzerland lean closer and closer to providing meaningful military aid to Ukraine, or at the very least, backfilling Western partners who send their own equipment.

Never mind, Zelensky is a Western puppet. He believed in Biden and took a gamble and destroyed his country. I would believe you if I didn't know how many years the Russians and the west have been fighting for power in Ukraine. But sorry, I can't throw the facts aside and accept the prs. Same words for 1 year, Russians will be defeated, fantasy marketing.You are confusing Zelensky with Putin.The first one defended his country and freedom and the other one started a war which will end in utter defeat and humiliation,destroying it's economy and reputation and basically turning it into European North Korea,paving the way for it's disintegration.
never mind, it's always the same stories for a year. Ukraine and Ukrainians are about to end before Russia ends.Europeans are contributing a massive amount of weapons to the Ukrainian war effort. The total amount of weapons shipped by Europeans is higher than what the Americans donated.
Even if the US would stop helping Ukraine, the Europeans will continue to help and Russia will be defeated.
Zelensky actually was complaining that talking about "Russian invasion" is hurting his country's economy and was asking US and other countries to stop it when they were warning him about Russia's upcoming invasion plans.Never mind, Zelensky is a Western puppet.

you are making a pun, at the time you mentioned, the same zelensky started to persecute his own citizen Russians in the east of the country to provoke Russia. tell me that too. What mind draws a sword against russia without the westerners agreeing to fight together. the mind of little man zelensky. Maybe he is carrying out the orders of Zionism. so he made this stupid move.Zelensky actually was complaining that talking about "Russian invasion" is hurting his country's economy and was asking US and other countries to stop it when they were warning him about Russia's upcoming invasion plans.
He seemed to believe Putin has some common sense lol.
Russia has already been defeated if you don't believe me listen to Putins goals in the declaration of the "special military operation" on 24 Feb 2022.
The only question is how much more of a beating they will recieve before someone in Russia gets enough courage to save what is left of their country,military and economy.
Putin must be held accountable not only for Ukraine war crimes but for what he did to Russians as well.Because in the long term Russians are the ones which will suffer the consequences of his stupidity in the decades coming.
He did more damage to Russia and it's people than Yeltsin and that says a lot.
There are infos that russian intelligence collecting ship Ivan Khurs in the Black Sea was actually sunk!
Do you want to play hockey with Canadiens or Indians? Hahahahaha Effing epic.Desperate times call for desperate measures:
russian propagandists beginning to understand that putins lost the war.
They want to remove Putin.
The guy got balls we have to give him that. Hopefully he does NOT fall from any high window
Lately he has honed his acting skills more than his military.
reading comments people say he blames Ukrainians for their deaths. But clearly an image of nails going into coffins with the flag adorned over it is typical russian barking.
All jokes aside, even if they were mothballed properly and kept in reserve etc... and were in a ready state to be brought back up to scratch (and donated to UKR)....
It still would be far too expensive to use pilot resources, operate and support them relative to what Ukraine needs in much more urgent priority.
i.e X amount of money doing F-111 pilot training + operation + pilot use + support would be far better spent on other things given ranges and overall pressing needs we are talking about here for Ukraine (that can be projected this year, next and forseeable future)...especially given platform scarcity and uniqueness.
F-16s really are much better "multi-tool" in comparison...at cheaper cost (and economy of scale still in operation with a large amount of airforces to support as they see fit to).
Its unfortunate for Ukraine though that in 2014 - 2022 period, NATO didn't help develop a core EW capability for Ukraine AF that would have maximised any F-16s SEAD and DEAD. NATO can only do so much from operating assets outside Ukraine airspace.
NATO completely underestimated the chance of this war to begin with...and squandered a huge amount of time and capacity development that could have been backfilled more optimally now if such a war did break out. Most things were done adhoc way now shooting from the hip.
Russian performance (in both strategic and tactical level) failure of course is predominant feature that has somewhat blanketed the NATO miscalculation.
Persecuting the Russians in the east of the country?You mean the Russia backed armed terrorists who killed over 5000 Ukrainian soldiers from 2014-2022?How could Ukraine persecute them when it had no effective control over much of the territory they (and Russia) occupied in 2014?you are making a pun, at the time you mentioned, the same zelensky started to persecute his own citizen Russians in the east of the country to provoke Russia. tell me that too.
