  1. Igor Strelkov, the Russian officer who ran the 2014 invasion. He's a savage critic of Putin, preferes a full on invasion. His assessments are more realistic than any other Russian source -


    >>1. Opponent.
    - Over the past month, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been continuously increasing the number of troops and military equipment in all directions - both "active" and "sleeping", creating a steady superiority in manpower, artillery and armored vehicles in many of them. At the same time, the enemy continued to form strategic reserves, limiting their entry into battle even at the height of the battle for Severodonetsk-Lysichansk.
    - As a new element of the tactics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, special attention is noted to the destruction by rocket artillery and unmanned aircraft of important rear facilities of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the Armed Forces of the LDNR, primarily large ammunition depots that were not covered or weakly covered by air defense forces.
    - Local superiority in manpower allowed the enemy in many areas to occupy previously abandoned territories without a fight, complicating the tactical position of our units and subunits operating in these areas.
    - Apparently, the emphatically defensive nature of the battle for Severodonetsk-Lysichansk on the part of the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was deliberate. The battles were only dragged out with the aim of gaining as much time as possible and inflicting maximum losses on the Russian strike force. After the loss of the main positions was a foregone conclusion, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to withdraw the core of its defending troops, avoiding the encirclement of even a small part of them - both in Severodonetsk and in the area of Lysichansk and Zolote-Gorskoe. At the same time, however, most of the defenders' equipment was irretrievably lost.

    Conclusion: The Armed Forces of Ukraine are completing preparations for their own active operations in one or more directions. Whether the enemy will first wait for a new attack by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation or will take his actions in a proactive manner - I will not undertake to predict.<<

    At least 14 Russian weapons companies have not faced any Western sanctions

    Nearly three dozen leaders of Russian weapons firms and at least 14 defense companies have not been sanctioned by the United States, the European Union or the United Kingdom,” the Reuters report said.

    One of the weapons moguls who has not been sanctioned is Alan Lushnikov, the largest shareholder of Kalashnikov Concern JSC, the original manufacturer of the famous AK-47 assault rifle. The company, which was sanctioned by the US in 2014 accounts for 95% of Russia’s production of machine guns, sniper rifles, pistols and other handheld firearms.


    You will be happy to hear that they are in the process of being added to the list.

    It’s MH17 all over again

    Russian propaganda and their army of useful idiots and conspiracy theory loons have already put forward a dozen theories with officials contradicting each other hour to hour and NOTHING in Russian media at all about this strike 



    And vodka 

    It's standard Russian propaganda to spread huge amounts of random "alternatives" with the hope of swamping the truth (Russia did it).

    Engagement with these propagandist adds credence to their lies by repeating their bullsheet.

    Russia's re-branded McDonald's sold more than 120,000 burgers on its opening day in Moscow, breaking all previous records from before the US chain left the country over its invasion of Ukraine. 

    Paroev said. 'We have never seen such daily turnover in the whole time McDonald's has worked in Russia.'

    Putin announces deployment of S-500 air defense systems

    The Russian military is in the process of deploying the S-500, the most advanced air-defense system in the country, President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday.

    Putin stated that the S-500 long-range missile system, which is designed to intercept aircraft and missiles and may have some anti-satellite capabilities, had no equal in the world.

    It is believed to have a range of 600km and is capable of intercepting targets traveling at hypersonic speeds, including warheads of intercontinental ballistic missiles.


    That will be useful for shooting down drones flying at 50m and 100km/hr

    Ah yes, the no analogue, best in the world,  Russian wonderwaffe

    One of the biggest and most important business events in the world. Over the past 25 years, the Forum has cemented its status as a leading international event focusing on key issues on the global economic agenda. It provides a platform for participants to exchange best practices and expertise in the interests of sustainable development.

    SPIEF has been held annually since 1997. Since 2005, it has been held under the auspices of the President of the Russian Federation, who has also attended each event.

    In 2021, SPIEF was the first business event of such magnitude to be held offline since the unavoidable break caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Forum was also notable for its use of cutting-edge digital technology. The four-day event brought together more than 13,500 participants from 141 countries, including representatives of more than 1,000 media outlets from 46 countries. Among them were heads of state and government, senior executives of major corporations, and world-renowned experts in the fields of science and civil society.

    The 2022 edition of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will feature Egypt as guest country.

    As in previous years, the business programme will focus on the global and Russian economies, social issues, and technological development.


    ...anyone going?

    Taliban will be there.

    Isn't it just time to call it yet......Russia's clearly won. 

    Are people still alluding on here to there being any sort of coherent western strategy? 

    Putin's now on a platform stating western regime change is coming. The sanctions have not only failed, they've utterly blown up in our faces, especially Europe's. 

    The high energy inflationary pressures are simply going to eat Europe alive as it now attempts to save it's own ar$e by trying to fire back up defunct coal plants. 

    What an absolute strategic failure. How anyone watched the Afghan debacle and held any faith the West had it in them to outfox Russia was beyond me. 

    IT IS OVER.

    As for cutting Russia adrift from global supply chains. A state of grand naivety that can only be made by the type of mindset that thinks the UK sending arms and potentially bodies to fight is the right thing to do. Clueless

    Russia was completely outside the western supply chain until  quite recently. Putting it in has now been acknowledged as a mistake and its been rectified.
