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


Grim Reaper 6

Recommended Posts

Ukraine seems to be doing a good job of holding Russia off. Apparently the more seasoned Russian troops have been held in reserve but are now being deployed.

But if Putin commits too many troops he will start leaving his own back door open, will somebody as paranoid as Putin risk this. 

 "Moscow called on “all units” to move into Ukraine in the coming days, as NATO begins a rapid resupply effort to deliver weapons."

 

The rapid reequipping effort, in Ukraine, marks a remarkable new moment in post-Cold War European history, with a majority of the continent openly working to defeat Russian forces in the field and showing no inclination to hide their intent to punish the Kremlin.

“It is remarkable that so many western governments — the US, the UK, the Dutch — are *overtly* shipping anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons to Ukraine right now in the middle of its war with Russia. Not even hiding it. Publicizing it. Loudly,” tweeted Andrew Exum, previously a top Pentagon official in the Obama administration.

Britain has pledged to continue to supply arms to Ukraine’s embattled military Armed Forces Minister James Heappey said Russians troops had not made the progress they might have hoped“ This is going to be a long slog. It is going to be brutal. We are going to see some horrendous things on our TV screens,” Heappey told BBC.

Heappey disclosed that Britain’s Ministry of Defence was working on plans to support a resistance movement and a government in exile if Ukraine was finally overrun.

“That is a decision for the National Security Council to take but it is something that the Prime Minister has asked us in the Ministry of Defence to look at and plan for,” he told Sky News.

The Pope visited Russian embassy in Rome and talked with Ukrainian president on the phone. Not at the same time, of course.

I know, I know, but let's remember Vatican does have quite a network which does have diplomatic potential.

Anonymous hacked some Russian state TV and showed truth about Russian aggression on Ukraine.

This is great because Russians captured in Ukraine are very young, poorly trained, disoriented and when allowed to call their parents the parents are shocked to hear their conscript kids are invading Ukraine.

Pro-Putin Chechens are fighting against Ukraine, their leader says they had no casualties... maybe he didn't hear yet that their general Magomed Tushayev was most likely killed.

This twitter thread is interesting, I dont know what qualifications the guy has if any but what he is saying does fit in with stuff happening on the ground along with stuff that seems to of been suspected with the Russian military.

To put it in summary the Russian military did poor planning and believed their own propaganda when coming up with the invasion plan for Ukraine so they didnt build up enough supplies for a protracted fight.  No commander wants to be the one to admit that they are not as prepared as they should be due to corruption and meeting timetables are more important then anything else.  Lastly the Russian battalion tactical group structure has fundamental problems and limitations in what it can do and the Russian military isnt able to overcome the inherent problems and limitations.

But it's still just an opinion piece so take it for what anyone thinks its worth.

Unconfirmed rumor that 5,000 Russian troops rioted in Belarus and have refused to go to Ukraine to fight.  Just a rumor with no confirmation but if it ends up being true that would be massive for Ukraine. 

Shortly before the invasion I do remember reading an article from Radio Free Europe that apparently interviewed locals in Belarus who said the Russian troops moved to Belarus, who are now invading Ukraine, had been of low quality.  That the Russian troops had been selling fuel from their vehicles to locals for quick cash, other reports mentioned Russian troops also selling weapons and ammunition, along with damaging a good bit of their equipment during the unloading process and not caring.

I just saw this on ABC News but the link I found to it on a quick search is FOX. Everyone is doing their small part in support of the Ukraine.

Here's a Canadian link.

Seems 10,000 Chechens have been sent to fight in Ukraine, reports coming out that a high ranking Chenchen general, his name is in the reports but I'm too lazy to look it up and no chance I can spell it by memory, seems to of been killed today during an airport battle.

The general's name is Tushaev:

Increasingly hearing rumors that the Russian general staff have ordered Kyiv to be fully captured by Monday regardless of casualties.  Also part of these rumors are that the VDV leadership are furious with this order as they believe it will lead to their branch being slaughtered in Ukraine.

Rumous or propaganda ? We are hearing a completely different story from the Russian side, so I would take these ''rumors'' with a grain of salt.

You said yesterday Kyiv was going to fall in a few hours but yet on the start of day 4 no major population center has been taken yet and Kyiv is still under complete Ukranian control.

Not really interested in your Russian propaganda and false information.

 You do realize that pretty much all Russian and Ukrainian military claims cannot be independently verified? You choose to believe one side's rumors or claims over the other.

But that doesn't necessarily make it more ''true''.

When I see videos of Russian helicopters and jets shot down, videos of Russian tanks and armored vehicles destroyed or abandoned, videos of Russian soldiers captured by Ukrainian forces, and cities clearly not controlled by Russia when Russia was saying that those cities were within hours of falling days ago I tend to start favoring one side's claims.

My personal favorite is Russian claims of Ukranian airforce completely destroyed along with Ukranian air defense while videos and pics of Ukranian jets flying and Ukrainian air defense shooting down Russian jets and helicopters.

Real question is why are you pushing what is clearly and obviously Russian propaganda and false information.  It's already clear you back the Russian side in this conflict.

Kyiv on heightened alert as Russian forces close in on all sides

 

Kyiv, Ukraine (CNN)Two large explosions lit up the night sky south of the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv early Sunday morning.

The explosions appear to have been around Vasylkiv, which has a large military airfield and multiple fuel tanks and is about about 30 kilometers south of Kyiv.
The latest development comes after Ukraine's outgunned forces held the capital for the third day on Saturday as battles continued across the country, while a defiant Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told citizens to defend the country.

According to reports, the bulk of Russian forces are now at only 18.6 miles (30 kilometers) from the center of Kyiv.

Seems Russia did not expect the war to go on this long, increased reports coming out of Russian armored vehicles running out of fuel, soldiers running out of food, and Russian military vehicles breaking down and being unable to get the needed parts for repair and thus being abandoned.  

Russian's supply chain is starting to break down as their logistics ability simply cant meet the need of the troops on the ground.  Not surprising given the low amount of logistics trucks and over reliance on railroads that the Russian military has for logistics.

Sounds like the generals BADLY underestimated the will of the Ukrainians to fight for their homes.  If they begin openly committing atrocities with WMD like chemicals, the world needs to cut all contact with Russia... PERIOD.
