"Ukraine has really significant deposits of rare earth minerals, and if we play our cards right could actually be a really attractive alternative to Russian and Chinese sources, which is where a lot of dependency currently is," one congressional staffer—who also requested anonymity as they were not authorized to speak publicly—told Newsweek.

"As there are increasing debates throughout the West about why it's in our interest to keep supporting Ukraine, I think this is one of the arguments that you're going to start hearing more."

Spoils of War​

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his allies have offered a dizzying array of justifications for the ongoing invasion. Seizing Ukraine's titanium sponge is not one of the Kremlin's public goals, but would be a boon for Moscow.

Russia has relatively low levels of titanium mineral reserves, and in 2021 Ukraine was actually its main source of titanium imports, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Most of the fighting has centered on eastern and southern Ukraine, home to trillions of dollars of mineral wealth. Russian forces seized at least two titanium ore sites in the opening months of the invasion.

Ukrainians are right to flee the war. If it were me, I wouldn't want to fight for usa and england. Let them come and fight Ukraine themselves.

As if Russia took over all of Ukraine, would their lives be very different? No. After all, either the westerners or the Russians will use Ukraine. The Ukrainians don't need to fight to serve the Westerners.



So very bad conditions for soldiers. Does Zelensky see this conditions?

The main problem here is that Russia is slowly learning while the West is still reluctant to send weapons

This caused Putin to amass a massive 200,000 personnel in luhansk alone and the news of a massive Russian counterattack till Lyman is iminnent and Bakhmut is nearly surrounded and Ukraine may lose it at any moment

If Putin won this war, then the repercussions will be great
no, actualy what rusia gains since january 2023 just came from throwing human as cannon fodder, the strategy that UA do not want to do, because of lack of human resource asset, far from russia. this kind situations must be compensate with good quality of IFV in UA side, but just many people here says, the reluctant of western to send more weaponary, make UA situations harder and harder becaise of this delay. the bradleys n others should be in UA since end last year, and I sure masive canonn fodder attack in eastern had no siginificant effect, like what happen today.

There are "hate crime" laws, which are effectively the Sharia Law of Progressivism. But by all means, try it yourself and you can report back to us from a Swedish prison, like the guy in the US (a much freer country than Sweden) who was imprisoned for 16 years for burning an LGBT flag, or the 2 kids in Canada arrested for burning the LGBT flag and threatened with imprisonment if they don't attend brainwashing camp.
If you care to read the articles you sent, the first guy got that punishment after stealing + arsoning.

Plus, we're not even talking about the USA or Canada. If you just Google "LGBT flag burning in Sweden" you can find results that there's no such examples.

If you burn something that belongs to you, including LGBT flag, nothing will happen.

You can hate Sweden all you want but at least build your hate based on reality.

Russia started war with:
* 1 million regular army
* 340 K Rosgvardiya
* 40 K so called LDNR regular force
* 200 K so called LDNR mobiks

Then they also started creating "volunteer" brigades in each region, sent Nazi "Rusich", tens of thousands Wagner, Redut, Patriot and other mercenaries..

Finally they mobilized another 320 K.

Yet you somehow claim that poor Russians are always outnumbered. :cry::cry:
UA: *Immediately* bans exit for every male between 16 and 60, immediately starts recruiting prisoners (including notorious war criminals such as "Tornado"), places conscription officers at entries/exits to all major cities, eventually starts handing out conscription notices AT GUNPOINT to literally anyone they find, now even including those previously exempt due to family commitments, disabilities etc. Wrestling down and dragging away those who resist.

"No mobilization, it's all fine and dandy"

RU: Standard small-scale mobilization *half a year in* of people who are in the pool, ie people with prior legit military experience. Paper notice, no physical coercion. Some people leave the country (1) but nobody tries to stop them. Some return later and face no issues. Some mistakes are made (some people not suitable are called up) because the law they went by is 20+ year old and some registries hadn't been adequately updated, but these mistakes are immediately acknowledged even by the top brass and subsequently rectified.

"Literal Volksturm-esque Nazi last stand"

So far, far less than the U.S. dodgers during Vietnam. My only concern at this point is if Ukraine gets minuteman ICBM nuclear warheads or Poland gets involved. You already saw it yourself 300k got involved in the operation which lasted for 2 months, withdrew and left 80k in the special operation zone. 320k reservists get involved but they have not been used yet while we see them get trained on T-90s, some T-14s, etc while we see Soledar get taken until it will be a matter of time for Ugledar, Seversk, bakhmut and kherson to be taken. There is no magical powers AFAIK for western tanks saving them other than making it clear if they need western tanks now than before than they must have alot of destroyed equipment. You are going to cry to me again that its bullshit, so I will show a western source that shows a map of what amount of Ukrainian troops and russian troops are involved the special operation zone but of course you will go ignore that as well. So I will leave you happy that Ukraine is winning.

The Airborne Forces repulse the attack of the sabotage group of Ukraine. Footage of the attack of the Ukrainian sabotage group on the Russian column of armored vehicles of the Airborne Forces in the Kremennaya area. As a result of the battle, a sabotage group of Ukrainian soldiers was destroyed by massive return fire.


Footage of a powerful strike by the Russian heavy flamethrower system TOS-1A Solntsepek in Ukraine. As reported, the blow was delivered to the fortified positions of the Ukrainian army in one of the villages.


Marker unmanned reconnaissance and strike vehicles will be sent to Ukraine. The Russian military robot "Marker" has its own firepower and an automatic control system, it is able to determine the exact coordinates of the enemy at a distance of up to 15 km and select targets. "Markers" are able to support the system of operation of tethered drones used to monitor the situation and have a visibility of tens of kilometers. Since 2021, the Wheeled Marker has been used to guard the Vostochny Cosmodrome, where it has already proven its effectiveness. How the robots will be used is still unknown.


Footage of the combat work of the Russian tanks T-90M "Breakthrough" in urban conditions in Ukraine. The tank is reportedly firing at the building where the Ukrainian servicemen are stationed. The T-90M "Proryv" tank is the newest combat vehicle used by the Russian army in Ukraine.


52-mm self-propelled howitzer 2S3 "Acacia" of the Ukrainian army, came under attack from the Russian kamikaze drone "Lancet". The installation was protected from above by a canopy from drones, but the operator was able to direct the drone under the protective canopy of the self-propelled guns.

**A Russian soldier, it seems, has set out to change the proverb that has been in effect for so many years, catching instead of birds, a... Ukrainian drone with his hands. This as seen in the video, which has been uploaded to Telegram from the account https://t.me/warhistoryalconafter.**

So interesting. :)

At the rate of which the Russians advanced, the Ukrainians would retreat faster than any Russian encirclement and plenty of time for them to do so.
The problem isn't just retreating before encirclement it is doing so before the pincer tightens; if the pincer becomes too tight Ukrainian forces will not only have a harder time resupplying the front but also a difficult time withdrawing Ukrainian forces in a safe manner.
