Russia Masses Military Equipment Near Ukraine Borders: A Prologue to WWIII?


Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts

The source of the facts I will mention is Deutsche Welle (not in English, so I can't post a link due to this site's rules). 

Hospitals in Belarus, especially in Gomel and other places near the border with Ukraine, are overwhelmed with wounded Russians. Even Lukashenko confirmed that Russian wounded are treated in Belarus. 

Injuries are horrific, as war injuries usually are. Many wounded were brought to hospitals after days without proper help, with gangrenous processes developing in their injured limbs.

Majority of the wounded are conscripts born in 2003, from poverty-stricken parts of Russian Federation. 

 

Two or three days ago I watched a video (in Ukrainian, by Ukrainians, so I can't post a link due to this site's rules) where Ukrainian soldiers are investigating one neutralized armored vehicle. There was a proper garbage dump inside and around the vehicle, among other bizarre stuff a Russian glove full of Ukrainian coins.

"Why do they take these? Where did he found these? Probably when they looted a shop. Did he keep those as souvenirs? How wise was that... that guy just gave his leg for a handful of Ukrainian coins..."      

 

The point is (besides the obvious fact that wars destroy lives and health of everyone involved) that caskets and limbless 19-year olds begun arriving home to Russia. 

And why? Because Putin was allowed for decades to "intervene" and occupy, meddle and infiltrate, finance various evil clowns in the West, all without consequences. Of course he thought he can do anything he wants to do. 

Ukraine will be the end of his demonic career. I can only hope he'll drag down to Hell his western assets too.

Putin calls Russian hypersonic missile Kinzhal (Dagger) an "invincible weapon". In reality, it is highly destructive missile but even Russian military expert agrees it does not create any strategic advance for Russia in Ukraine. The actual difference in using a new weapon, compared to classic missiles, is mostly psychological. 

So he tested his new toy on other, sovereign country. The important thing here is not that a missile is flying faster, the important thing is that Russian "special operation" is a war and Putin's use of anything he's got shows that he is rational enough to notice he's losing. 

 

The trouble is that hypersonic missiles Putin is apparently willing to use are indeed able to avoid defense systems, since it's practically impossible to intercept them. No one knows how many of those are available and how fast more can be made, but I'm looking forward to the moment when Putin will wish he saved some of his fancy weaponry for later.  

 

The source of facts I mentioned is an article in Croatian, which contains links to Russian sources, which I can't link due to this site's rules of acknowledging English sources only.

There is a large difference between Western maps and Russian ones on the war progress.

On Western maps we give them roads, on Russian maps they show they have taken all the land between roads.

As one of the Russian assets in the West said recently: Russians are not going into the fields because they don't want to damage the crops. 

This stupidity means that even Russians admit they stick to the roads. Not because they are afraid they might damage the crops, of course, it's because they don't dare spreading (which means they'd be easy targets), so they stay in convoys (which means they are easy targets). 

If you notice there's an obvious logical fault in their tactics, that's because their tactics doesn't follow the usual logic. It consists of piling up any sort of garbage and cannon fodder they've got, in hope they'll drown the enemy in their own waste and blood.

To be critical then Western media coverage is just as one sided as the Russian media coverage. So, it means how the war is portrayed as going for the Russians in the West, cannot be relied upon. You probably cannot see that, as Europe has banned access to their news sites.

Its inconceivable that our stats for the numbers of dead and wounded Ukrainians are anywhere near as low as the level reported. Lets look at Al Jazerra (yes, even Arab news): Ukraine latest updates: UN says 6.5m displaced inside Ukraine | Russia-Ukraine war News | Al Jazeera

816 civilians killed and 1333 wounded? really? We have seen the images of large block areas in cities destroyed and burning. Obviously no side wants to report honestly as it impacts morale knowing that your people are being slaughtered. The Russians are taring up Ukrainian cities worse than what the Americans did to Iraqi ones. I`m going for 100,000 civilians dead already.

And what is it with Russians driving 60km up a road, stopping their vehicles, and then the Western media claiming they have run out of fuel? Since when do tanks and trucks and APCs run out of fuel after 60km? They carry the fuel for much, much, further. They are sat waiting, not stalled due to problems with their logistics.

Porkies are being told on both sides, which I think funny enough is why their media is banned in the EU. So EU citizens cannot see a different set of perspectives and apply their own rational and critical thinking.

Russian and Western media are not magically the same. Such equivalency is false. Like claiming that Russian and Western average life expectancy, alcohol or krokodil consumption must be the same. They're not.  

Western (except for the known Russian assets), even Ukrainian media are fairly reliable. For example, Ukraine reported of 109 children killed so far. If you think that's too low... 

On the other side, Russian media are state-controlled, pure propaganda arms of Putin's regime. 

The reason why Russian convoys are stuck is because of fierce resistance of Ukrainians, then because of Russian abysmally sloppy logistics, natural and Ukrainian-induced flooding, and also self-sabotages among Russians. Not only they sell fuel, they were also punching holes in their fuel tanks to run out of fuel faster, to avoid getting killed for Putin. 

They're not waiting, they're stuck. 

Russian logistics is so awful it's not just fuel they're not capable of delivering to the troops, it's food too. And evacuating their wounded goes so tragically clumsy their boys are losing limbs that could have been saved if they were given proper medical attention a week earlier. They let their wounded sit for a week without food or aid. 

 

And that catastrophic humiliation of Russia is the reason why Russian assets need to peddle the false need for "objectivity". 

They want no "objectivity", they want to spread lies and excuses for the complete disaster that is Putin's invasion.

I was just reading an article (the same as usual, I can't post you a link because it's in untermensch language and translation is apparently an unheard of magic) that analyzes the stupidity of wasting too many resources, weapons and personnel in a war that cannot be won. 

One doesn't have to have any military clue to see there's strong logic in that. 

Putin is dragging various "volunteers" to die in Ukraine and even started moving Far East equipment towards Europe.  

It indicates he's stomping his little feet in frustration, doing his own version of the Bunker scene.

You can use Google translate to translate an entire webpage and link to it:

Like this

@rashore @Saru Surely that's an appropriate compromise that means people can still provide sources when most primary sources aren't in English?

I don't think it's really about any language problem. 

And I don't mind experiencing such weird phenomenon :lol: what I do mind is that they give the same treatment to an actual Ukrainian. 

 

But thank you anyway, I appreciate your good intentions.

We've always had a rule requesting that members post only in English, which is because the vast, vast majority of our users are from English speaking countries.

Imagine if someone was posting articles exclusively in Chinese - you would quickly get tired of having to manually translate each link to determine what was being said.

It has nothing to do with any given language being 'inferior' to English - but then you know that already.

Yep, linking to a translated version of an article is fine.

I was posting translated parts of articles, because I'm not stupid to post in original languages. 

I do believe it's possible that someone may be so paranoid they must check each article and translate for themselves, because they don't trust the translation I provided, but it can't be the vast, vast majority of your users. 

Remember when Maidan was in progress and you wanted to remove my translation of the article about Ukraine? Because the author might sue you? So the author made a profile on your site just to give his explicit permission for me to use his article. 

 

Anyway, your site, your rules. 

But it would be fair if you could make an exception for Coil. 

(About the real problem behind moderating my posts in context of Ukraine, I'd be happy to answer your questions via PM, if there are any.)

I don't understand why you can't find other sources in the US/Canada/UK/France/Germany etc. to confirm the ''facts'' your are mentioning.

Just use Google, Bing or any other search engine in the English language and look for news articles.

Because the facts are not becoming facts only if English-speaking person has acknowledged them. 

Just use the translator would be the sane solution. You use the translator. If you care enough to read.

I think that if you can't compare and analyze sources from different news articles, it cannot be established as ''facts''.

Someone here could just post articles from RT, Sputnik or TASS but it's worthless if he cannot also find other sources to back up his claims.

Dozens of Ukrainian troops killed in barracks bombed by Russia, witnesses say

''MYKOLAIV, Ukraine — Dozens of soldiers were killed when Russian troops bombed a Ukrainian military barracks in the southern city of Mykolaiv, witnesses told AFP on Saturday while a rescue operation was underway.

“No fewer than 200 soldiers were sleeping in the barracks” when Russian troops struck early Friday, a Ukrainian serviceman on the ground, 22-year-old Maxim, told AFP without providing his last name.''

Not sure if mentioned but there are rumors that Russian lieutenant general Andrei Mordvichev commander of the 8th combined arms army has been killed.  If true this would be the highest ranking Russian general killed so far.

Yes, the fifth one. 

It wasn't officially confirmed yet.

But I don't doubt it will be.

Just a question, Helen...how many languages do you speak/read?  I know in Europe it is a given to know numerous languages, unlike in North America, we might know 2

That's pretty good going to be honest. Here in England, some of the folk struggle to speak just one, fluently.
