The "Russia is laughably incompetent" narrative was there from day 1. How many foreign "adventurers" have died when they confronted the Russians or worse yet the fuckin Chechny bros.

Oh! I was supposed to believe Russia was incompetent? After the Palin treatment I knew the left is retarded and projected it on anyone not on their plantation. Then with Trump being an idiot and unhinged...

There Are competent unitsin the Russian army. I have however been shocked by some og the videos i have seen. There Are units who Are on paper proffesionals, but perform as conscripts

to know what's going on, just listen to what our government says on day 1. it's very likely the opposite of what's usually going on.

It's not a narrative anymore. It's a fact. The Chechen fucking islamists don't even fight. They are there to loot and punish deserters

The Russians control less territory than 2 months ago and have been severely attritted despite their numerical advantage, so yes, I would say they are ‘losing’.

‘Why’ is another matter that the military historians will have to tackle. Certainly logistics, poor planning, poor morale, and poor leadership are going to be factors to a greater or lesser extent.

For those few Putards still left on this board, please check out Ukraine Weapons Tracker which is cataloging all the open source equipment losses on both sides. You can’t scroll through the hundreds of images and videos of destroyed Russian tanks, APCs, and aircraft and still think that this was Putin’s plan (lol) or that the Russians are ‘winning’.

Link? Do they keep a counter, or just a list of photos? It's easy to paint a picture of anyone "winning" if you just show a bunch of pictures of the enemy dead

The other thing that you will come away with is the sense that the Ukraine Armed forces have invented a new type of asymmetric warfare where drone corrected fires and light ATGM teams have turned the Russian armor advantage into a liability.

So many of the drone videos now show Russian troops fleeing their tanks as soon as the first round falls.

The other aspect is that the Russians are unable to employ the same drone tactics as the west-supplied MANPADS have been employed by the UKR so successfully. There must be at least a hundred pictures of Orlon wreckage.

Conversely, you can't scroll through hundreds of pictures of destoyed vehicles that are by and large decades old or of blasted convoys that have no gore or bodies present that think that Ukraine is "winning". Nevermind the rather conspicuous absense of the Russian Air Force as well as many Ukrainian ground maneuver units.

This is literal bullshit and you have to know it. Ukraine is running out of foods, weapons, and fuel fast. Russian has intact supply lines. Does this look like a winnable war of attrition?

The problem is that you know nothing of the Russian doctrine of warfare and don't take them at their word, and you are believing obvious agitprop designed to prop up the massive money laundering scheme your country is engaging in by funding and arming the Ukraine (since 2014 at least).

WIth all fuel refineries in Ukraine now blown up, how exactly will they go into battle against the Russian tank army which will advance once the heavily fortified positions in Donbass finally crack under month + of intense bombardment from the 'Orcs'?

Please stop with this nonsense about drones using repurposed footage of desrtoyed Ukrops gear and claiming its Russian….

But Yeltsin and Putin were forbidden from going Full Pinochet against their communist opposition by the Western establishment.

I would check this account from time to time. It sometimes agreed with other trackers, sometimes different. Most of the people doing this OSINT analysis have real jobs too. I am sure that it was probably banned for some other reason.

Nor when they fight with an arm tied behind their back. They've been extremely cautious when it comes to going all out, unlike America/NATO who'd bomb everything with a pulse.

Dratchev 8 points ago +8 / -0

yeah no shit, if this was a US/NATO attack on Ukraine, you would have about 30 days of an air bombardment before land troops went in. aka they would do like they did in Iraq.

Turns out Ukrainian doctors speak Russian better than English. Putin wants a productive vassal state, not a pike of smoking rubble to rule.

Elencher 4 points ago +5 / -1

Russia's goal isn't to level the country, eastern Ukraine is both highly majority Russian and also a giant food producer. Russia wants to take the territory as functional as possible.

2
pacalis128 2 points ago +2 / -0

Their goal is to level a lot of the country so the Ukraniansm, and more importantly the EU, won't return.

2
libman 2 points ago +2 / -0

Russia could destroy Ukraine in even less than 3 days, but that's not their goal.

First and foremost, this is a war for population.

Russia has plenty of everything - except ethnic Russians.

They want to win "hearts and minds", and get more regions of Ukraine to join Russia.

(And Ukrainians are just ethnic Russians that were turned against Russia - first by Poland, then the Bolsheviks, then GloboHomo.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukrainization

Without a growing Slavic and Christian population, Russia's future outlook is grim...

2
pacalis128 2 points ago +2 / -0

They are not taking Ukraine. They are only taking the East, leaving Kiev and levelling the rest.

The longer the war goes the more the Russians achieve their objectives.

It seems impossible to find a source with no bias. You have to filter that yourself to try to arrive at what you feel is the true picture.

But I'm finding the Ukranian/Nato sources to be almost useless. There's no real information. Just a bunch of dramatic propaganda. I.e, https://ukraine.liveuamap.com/, which I use because you can drill down into the map, posts headlines like; "Russian troops bombed an elementary school killing 40 people." When the reality is that the Ukranian troops have holed themselves up in the school, they're firing artillery from there, and the 40 people killed were soldiers.

It's the same propaganda used against the US in Iraq. "US bombs a mosque killing 40 people" when they were all Islamo-Fascist soldiers. "US drone strikes a builing killing X people", but the numbers and disposition come from people who have been inculcated since birth in a culture that advocates lying to non-believers (taqqiya).

Ukraine is winning so hard that they only need 40 billion dollars of foreign money to keep winning.

Tune-A-Fish 2 points ago +2 / -0

Congress wants a hot war and 40 billion will get it going. Nothing more this Congress wants to do than make America Last. They hate us and they stole the election and from that point they were all in on Build Back Broke.

Our Great Republic is falling apart in real time and our demise wasn't because of a foreign power but because our ruling class brought it on through greed and love of communism.

If you wanna see a real hoot for about 75%+ of the comments, r/UkraineWarVideoReport has a no holds barred pro-Ukranian bias.

They've been arguing over the Azov and the slide of watching more of them be convinced that "Azov had some Nazis in 2014, but not really anymore" is becoming more prevalent. They like to call Russians "orcs". etc etc...

To say they've been sucking the cool-aid is an understatement, regarding this whole conflict.
