Russia’s Iran-supplied ‘kamikaze’ drones pose new threat for Ukraine’s military

''Ukraine is accusing Russia of striking deep inside its territory with what it says are Iranian-made “kamikaze” drones as Moscow’s troops are facing mounting setbacks on the battlefield.

Ukrainian officials said Wednesday that Russia used drones “of the Shahed-136 type” to target the town of Bila Tserkva, just 50 miles south of Kyiv, injuring one person and destroying several buildings.

Ukraine has been sounding the alarm about Russia’s increasing use of drones, which it says are being supplied by Tehran, to hit cities far behind the front lines for weeks, but Wednesday’s attack is the closest to the country’s capital and poses a new challenge to the Ukrainian military. ''

I am sure they will return Crimea as a "goodwill gesture" before the special operation is finished.

They will do a "strategic retreat" to Moscow

You know, I think the Russians are just offering a token gesture defence before falling back.

They are playing for time rather than mounting a hard defence.

Russia is re-configuring it's entire operation in Ukraine. They will soon be integrating 300.000 more soldiers. As Putin mentioned, the situation is about to stabilize.

Then we will see the Russian military resume it's offensive operations.

Modern warfare is more about equipment and specialized training. 

Putin can sacrifice as many young men as he wants and it won't have much effect other than raising discontent at home

I seem to recall they did that once already after they failed to take Kyiv.

The difference then though was that their forces were not untrained civilians pressed into service.

The process of annexation isn't 100% completed. Putin proclaimed annexation but there are still legal steps to be taken inside Russia's parliament.

Seems there are some other issues as well, eh?  If Russian forces do not control those areas, the legal documentation doesn't mean much, does it?  What will he do?  Nuke his own territory in response to Ukraine's occupation of it?

My two cents worth, it will take a month or more for the troops to be properly trained and supplied with adequate equipment.  At the moment the whole end to end recruitment operation is disorganised, close to a dogs breakfast. I mean, to believe in anything that Putin says is the epitome of naivety and quite laughable.

Russia will backpeddle and lose a lot of invaded territory before some level of organisation is reached and by then winter will set in and moral will drop down to record lows for all the losses.  Discontent in Russia will grow and public pressure will begin to hit the regime hard.

You do realize that the 300.000 soldiers mobilized have recent military experience? They certainly are not untrained civilians.

They have previously done national service,   In some cases 20 years ago.    That does not equate to actual military experience.

russian "mobiks" (mobilized, soon to be mogilized - you know what mogila means, don't you, neighbour?) don't agree with your claims.

You are quoting a Ukrainian propaganda site to prove your point. Not very convincing.

The draft is targeting reservists with certain military specialties and relevant experience. People don't realize how big the Russian Army is. They have a large pool to draw from.

Untrained civilians is the last thing they need.

It was originally posted on russian social networks. Do you think Ukraine controls these too? 

Or you're using a standard response? tsk-tsk.  

 

So let me use few more russian sources.

Coming from someone who is actively pro-ruskie to prove his point, you're not very convincing (or even close to the truth, as ever)

I look forward to your reaction when Russia is forced out of Ukraine. I'm sure you'll continue to find ways to diminish Ukraine's successes, and convince yourself that Russia is still going to somehow come out on top despite the fact that their front lines are dissolving before our very eyes, leaving Ukraine with the upper hand.

Sorry to disturb your usual litany, but I believe you've got something else to do right now (note that the source is russian again):
