No doubt Ukraine is defeating Russia. They still have over 75% of their country.
When are western reporters going to call the Russians on their BS. Yes! They lie. Yes! They make poor fake propaganda videos, Yes! Their entire raison d' être as a nation is fake. They have been taught over generations that everyone wants to invade them. It's pathological with them. Just say it. I am so tired of this woke talk. "We don't have proof of this or that." "Putin will get upset" OMG.
Study Russians' history. It's right in front of you. Just watch Russian State TV. They only understand a slap, brute force and brutality. Like when the skinny kid finally knocks the bully unconscious. Everything changes. But we have to be the skinny guy and soon. Otherwise things will change but not in our favor. So western politicians, throw some propaganda and lies out there. Tell them
Ukraine actually has 85 HIMARS systems. That will confuse and divide.
Why are we so bent on the truth in this instance. Yes, one should report truth, I agree, but not with these guys. Oh! And just give the Russians the license plates on the HIMARS too, while you are at it.
The reticence and inability to move, the doddering and juddering from the West will cost this one and the Russians know it.
Remember this, there are no good faith "negotiation" with them. They firmly believe they can get to Berlin again. Like they did once before. (with a massive amount of help from the Americans, btw.)
They learnt the lying from the Mongols when they where invaded. Unfortunately it lingered in the culture. It's academically called Strategic Lying. Yes! It's actually a thing. One can study it. They don't even realize when they are doing it.
They are not used to someone calling them out. Just do it. They are not going to vaporize anybody. Believe me. I watch Putin closely when he talks to his Kremlinites and I can see the facade slipping already. He's smiling that caught out smile. There is a sense of desperation about his word choice. Stephen King called it "slippage".
It's slowly creeping in like molasses. We just cannot forsake the Ukrainians at this point. I don't care what it costs. Otherwise the undeveloped world ( and maybe others) are going to experience consecutive annual famines that will eventually erupt on corrupt and unwitting governments, probably with blood and fire. Putin will hold the supply until that happens an THEN negotiate what he wants.
Think of how much that firestorm will cost us?
And one last thing, meant for our so-called military intelligentsia. DO NOT let Putin get to Transnistria. That's the aim, hidden in the Donbas story. Why is he bombing Donbas to rubble if it's meant for Russians? He doesn't care. He has one aim, and one only, that is to cut off Ukraine from the ocean. To land lock them. Then he has control over a 1/4 of the earths' food supply. Ukraine will wither and probably die, because taking 10 million tons or more of grain to a Baltic Port by road can take 10 to 15 years to build and will bankrupt them in the long run.
And then we will pay.
congratulations putan you have killed so many innocent people in your quest for what
Lovely thought 💭, in the first place the leader of Ukraine was duped by a fraud leader in Washington? So the results is a mess of building 🏢 fell to the ground. Death of millions of people. The Ukraine's leader should come to Russia 🪆 and talk about stopping the bombing, and economic cooperation. Simple?,..,,
So what's holding up the bombing of Putins cash cow‐the Nordstream pipeline, now that he is cutting off gas to NATO countries.?
guerilla warfare at night trains roads water works poison the land so it will be of no use to the russians
The western allies should provide Ukraine with weapon systems that can strike all sites in Russia. Who said Russia gets to dictate that their criminal war only takes place in Ukrainian territory? Every military and military industrial site in Russia is a legitimate target. So is the Kremlin. If this isn't true, the US and its allies should never have bombed Germany or Japan in WWII.
They have been there silly already in use. Why would they tell you about that? So you tella Russia. No way.
I saw a photo of 5 Himars missile launchers and you say 4 are in Ukraine. Try 40 are in Ukraine.
Propaganda has resumed
God Bless the USA, Great Britain, Germany and all other NATO Nations for standing by with Ukraine. It is imperative that Ukraine survives and triumphs over Russia, solidifying freedom and peace to Europe.
Thunder on the Dneiper
We will use bombs that obliterate a city by city.
So many Russian trolls here and propaganda lies here. I guess HIMARS do hurt quite a bit 🙂 Good, glory to Ukraine!!
Whatever upgrade you send them, the more dangerous weapons Russia will use
Hopefully, the Ukrainians start hitting Russian cities and letting them have a taste of reality, the people that is.
Tom is full of sh-t or just believes anything lol These weapons wont make a difference at all lol And Russia did if fact take those systems out, also a warehouse full of ammo for these systems. I guarantee you they wont last long. Lies are all coming from the west and Ukraine" like OMG nearly everything they say" Well they need to keep you and the solders dying there with some hope as Russia moves with hardly any pause" This is all well known by many reputable people and academics in the west by the way. hope your all up to speed as your all effected by this war , its not looking good as Europe has bad days ahead economically like you never seen , all because the US US led NATO the rest thought lets take down Russia. No joke that's what's happening.
NATO don’t back down finish the job support them
The Russians seem to be looking for these supply lines. This is the reason there's missiles landing over the battle lines. This could be disruptive to the foreign weapons effort. There also must be easy to set up intelligence on the movement of these weapons.
Russia is self destroying his country and army too…
Vehicle production in Russia has decreased by 29.3% in May. Truck and bus production fell by nearly 40%. A law was put in place that Russian companies have to provide the military with services. Still Putin pretends Russia is untouched by sanctions and not being in war. In any democratic country this situation would create mass demonstrations and civil unrest. I give a year before the sanctions and returning coffins make people furious and Russia fall from within. Stay strong Ukraine! Putin will burn in hell together with Hitler and Stalin. Wellcome to NATO and EU. Peace and love from Sweden.
Don't let the Russians sleep at night.
Keep the War going, thats what they want! Here's what never reported. In 2014 the Obama administration and Biden was ahead of the Ukraine affairs, funded and organized a coup in Ukraine. The aim was the removal of a government considered too friendly to Russia. They carried out this coup by allying with far right paramilitary forces.
Go behind Russian troops and start bombing Russia.
Let Putin really feel the war.
Target his homes
Just start world war 3
This weapons make Ukraine lost fast and become refugees for US to pay. Don’t dreaming the win of Russian, no way to win war with Russian
Let's figure this out. You don't have to be US Naval Intelligence not NISO to figger this out. The Navy knows the coordinates of all the Russian Submarines in the Black Sea.
Ok, so why aren't they giving the coordinates to the Ukraine and firing torpedo missiles at them. It is a no brainer. So why isn't this happening.? Maybe it is. The US does not want to say that Russian Submarines with nuclear weapons are now buried in the Black Sea. And Russia does not the world to know that they lost submarines with Nuclear Armaments. So, this may well have happened. Taking out the Russian Fleet in the BlackSea is the end of the road for Putin domestically and militarily. So, just do it. It may be happening especially the submarine part. Naval Intelligence is formidable beyond belief. How would anybody ever know?
Putin is Hitler in disguise
It's U.S. propaganda as well.
bring war on Russian soil.
I've just read and if I've got this wrong my apologies I've read that iran are giving russia combat capable drones if this is true then russia may have advantage over ukraine the uk and us have got involved in my opinion this could trigger WW3
