>>37582 Yes, please. And thank you.
>>37583 Pastanigger here, someone told me to repost so sure >>37527 >This shit is just weird. All of these people pushing this propaganda have to know that Ukraine is a lost cause so you would think they would be steering the propaganda entirely in the direction of "Ukraine is being genocided by those mean Russians" instead of "Ukraine is about to win and Russia is panicking and incompetent." That is exactly what our lugenpresse started doing about a week after Mariupol fell. It's so eerie watching US news and social media claim the Ukrainians are blasting 100k Russians per minute while our own news agencies run one sob story after another about poor doggos and babushkas left to die. >It's like back in the 2016 US elections where the media said Hillary was a shoe in and then when she lost people were freaking out and having mental breakdowns. That Joker quote about people losing their minds if a crisis doesn't go as pre-planned might be cringy, but it's not an incorrect statement. Normalfags want stability above all else, they'll throw their rights in the gutter if it means their lifestyle won't change dramatically.
>>37547 >>37558 Actually, the President of Italy just told him that he's gonna be sinking with the ship as its captain. It's pretty simple, really. The Italian government has been ruled by non-elected officials for at least 4 years by now, every year they run into some crisis and reshuffle ministries around until enough of the elites are satisfied. What happened with Draghi was the sum of three individual fuckups: -M5S (five star movement, "populist" but really just a bunch of non-politicians, intellectuals and a bunch of spies for the (((Partito Democratico))) mafiosi), which is the largest parliamentary group as of today (but who are expected to lose up to 20% of their seats next elections) decided by themselves that Italy should not oblige any NATO treaty if it means the selling or gifting of weapons (their intentions are not noble, they're just posturing). The Minister of Foreign Affairs, DI Maio, who is also from M5S, heavily disagreed with this stance, thus he split from their party to form a new one with a bunch of other M5S politicians, but crucially he did not leave his post. This means that anything the Minister of Foreign Affairs say won't be backed by the government, in the middle of a fucking European war theater; -Draghi (unelected Prime Minister) had been personally appointed by the President of Italy in order to push even more globalism and European values onto the populace, as well as to create unpopular legislation with the prospect of a cushy pension in exchange for his tarnished reputation (this has been happening at least another two times since Italy joined the EU, whenever tough times are ahead the President elects a neutral banker PM that is basically the fall guy so that Italians won't revolt but rather keep voting the same people that screw them over). However, unlike previously, the situation in Italy is dire enough that only by pushing extreme indirect taxation like rising minimum wages, gibs to non-working family units and more fiscal pressure on industries could keep the government from collapsing. Since M5S is the biggest party and they wanted even more gibs for the unemployed and migrants (again, not because of their policies, but to save face before the next elections), they refused to vote on the motion, sending a clear message that from now on any political reform won't be passed. Draghi tried to GTFO and Mattarella promptly told him that he won't accept it, since otherwise the one losing face in front of the international community will be the President. There's also rumors that Draghi was offered some NATO job, which would be doubly ironic considering the previous point; -No one on the Italian government wants to hold the next elections. Due to a referendum passed like two years ago by now, the number of Senators and Parliamentarians must drop by about one third. While on the one hand this means that whoever is elected rules with tighter control on the country, on the other literally no political party barring (((Partito Democratico))) in Bologna and Firenze and Lega Nord (cuckservativs, pro Northern independence) in Veneto will be able to hold any significant political power. Plus they won't be able to get even more unelected officials to grab as much cash as possible from the Italian coffers. No one wants to deal with that nightmare, so you have a coalition that goes from Communists to quasi Fascists, from populist centrists to conservatives all trying to stave off the possibility of going on another election before they've pilfered enough money. M5S is the only party retarded enough to try and jeopardize that situation and everyone has been trying to work around their unreasonable demands for years. Addendum: apparently M5S have decided to just leave their ministries as well, meaning that come October we'll probably have no government and will be forced into more sham elections.

==Mumbai Port Authority objects US consulate letter to block Russian Ships= India has taken exception to the suggestion by the US consulate (Mumbai) that Russian ships should not be allowed at Mumbai port and has asserted that it is New Delhi’s sovereign right to deal with global partners on national interests. The surprise move has raised eyebrows at the South Block here as the US Consulate General in Mumbai wrote directly to the Mumbai Port Authority last month asking it to not allow Russian vessels to dock at the port because of American sanctions against Russia. The Mumbai Port Authority has, in turn, written to the Directorate General of Shipping, which has asked the Ministry of External Affairs for instructions. Sources told ET that it was India’s sovereign decision to engage with countries in national interests. The US later said the conversation with India was a private one. But sources here pointed out that such diplomatic conversations are not private. Members of the diplomatic community told ET that the move by the US consulate was unnecessary. Expressing reservations against the US move, Derek J Grossman from the RAND Corporation and a keen watcher of India-US ties tweeted: “Seems Biden admin has shifted tactics when pressuring India. Instead of speaking directly to New Delhi, US consulate in Mumbai writes a letter to Mumbai Port Authority to bar Russian ships. Of course, New Delhi found out. Silly move by the US.” Read more at: https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/india/india-objects-to-us-consulates-direct-letter-to-mumbai-port-authority/articleshow/92817818.cms?utm_source=contentofinterest&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=cppst

captured armored car
>>37587 I have no clue what any of this means except that it sounds like Italy is a clown car with too many clowns.
Gauleiter Kim complains that this morning the only shipbuilding university in Ukraine was destroyed in Nikolaev.
>>37593 Italy has largely been run by people who aren't elected for half of a decade or more now. M5S, the largest party and the one previously heralded as populist but turned out to be in name only, makes impossible demands of the rest of the government for show. The Minister of Foreign Affairs became fed up with this after they demanded that Italy should follow no NATO treaty that requires arming other countries/groups, and he formed a splinter party while still holding office, meaning Italy's foreign face doesn't reflect the face of its government. The PM appointed a banker as President and is now trying to resign because of how bad the situation is getting. Bad enough that the only way to recover the government's popularity would be to send the economy into a freefall with socialist policies. However, the President won't let the PM leave to save face for himself, and the PM is rumored to have been offered a job at NATO. Compounding the previous two events is the fact that Italy has, by referendum, voted to make its congress 1/3 of what it previously was and will have to enforce this in the next election. However, this both hurts the Italian people by consolidating representation and power in regional groups (i.e. Lega Nord, a pro-independence party for the North) and well funded groups (i.e. Partito Democratico) and sitting politicians because they can't embezzle more state funds by appointing their friends and fellow party members. This has led to a situation where everyone of every non-status quo group is holding together an impossible coalition before they can bankrupt the country. M5S is no exception to these practices but is willing to metaphorically shoot itself and everyone else if their demands aren't met. They've taken this a step further and are going to collapse the government by leaving any ministry they've been assigned to.

Russian OSINT enthusiasts from @vatfor compared the areas of interest of the Western and Chinese satellites in Ukraine. 4 Digital Globe satellites were mostly taking pictures of the front line and certain points in the rear. Hardly can be defined as business-as-usual. In other words, 4 satellites (at least) are used almost exclusively to satisfy Ukraine’s intelligence needs, at least from June 1 to July 14. Four Digital Globe devices (GeoEye-1 and WorldView-1 -2 -3) have been recently busy filming the front line and various objects in the rear. The top screenshot shows publicly available images from June 1 to July 14, 2022.

>>37596 So the Italian government isn't just the circus but a clown college?
>>37598 So... time to stock fun supplies?
Working on making a summary of DPA's hour-long summary but incompetents at work are making it take longer than planned since I keep having to pause the audio. >>37600 I think the time to stock fun supplies was 2-4 years ago, anon. Time to make last-minute adjustments to your supplies; funs or otherwise.
>>37600 No its time to fuck off to Argentina or Greenland.
Russia doing its traditional evening cruise missile cuisine. Possible 'Kinzhal' usage, but can't say for sure since Russia has several hypersonic missile models in service.
>>37601 >2-4 years ago, anon I live in a no-fun zone, something of my own is better than nothing because i cannot play with multiple people using only a point metal stick thing even when i train to be better at it. Saying because fun is expensive so getting some means a huge chunk of savings gone, it's a once or twice in a lifetime decision.
>>37602 >Argentina >im-fucking-plying This place might be able to get under notice and avoid atomization, but it's not exactly a great place to run to. Have you fucking SEEN who is in charge of it lately, what they've been doing to its economy for the past few decades?

DPA summary: https://youtube.com/watch?v=AZ5Db0Y02aE >Russians are shelling near Sumy region suggesting they are testing the waters >The most hated bridge in Ukraine has been repaired >Ships are beginning to export Ukrainian grain along the Romanian-Ukrainian river border >Pro-Russian sources suspect the ships are dropping off military supplies for Ukraine in secret >DPA is now using shelling to determine parallel world frontlines >Most notably Oleksandrivka is invalidated and given back to the Russians >Ukrainians have managed to create a buffer once more on the Zaporizhia front >Russians have entered Soledar >Have taken the Gypsum mine giving them a vantage point over the city for artillery control >Ukrainian MOD may be using shelling as propaganda to claim control of areas (see Spirne) >Russians have now (officially) entered Siversk proper >Siversk is linked to Liman by rail so Russian supply lines will stabilize linking Siversk to Belgorod >Izium front is a bigger clusterfuck than my factory floor right now There's four minutes left in the video but I think he's just talking about the Istanbul summit.
>>37606 Argentina maybe, but Patagonia is basically unpopulated desert, innit?
>>37607 >What does this mean I don't know for sure but I think the implication is those are international satellites being used exclusively for Ukraine. Which would justify Russia using missiles to blow up military targets in space.

The Ukrainian command deployed one M142 HIMARS MLRS launcher in the vicinity of the city of Sumy. The latest attacks on supply depots in the Kherson and Donetsk regions proved that the Ukrainian army has extended-range ammunition - at least ATACMS Block II (up to 140 km). Even taking into account the deployment in Sumy, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be able to reach Kursk. Existing suspicions are confirmed by the increased activity of commercial satellites for remote sensing of the Earth (ERS). The @vatfor team analyzed data on which areas were filmed by Western remote sensing devices . Increased attention is paid to the border areas of the Kursk region and Kursk itself. >>37597 related n addition to possible missile strikes, several military personnel trained in sabotage activities were sent to the border in order to penetrate Russian territory. Back in May, @rybar wrote that sabotage and reconnaissance groups are being trained under the guidance of American instructors at the training center in Trostyanets in the Sumy region.
>>37598 The end result of this will be worldwide nuclear proliferation because it's become clear that neither NATO, the US, nor the EU will do shit besides thoughts and prayers, and delivering a handful of largely antiquated/downgraded weapons. And after that, either we achieve total world peace, or total nuclear annihilation. No in-between.
>>37609 You can live in the Atacama. The Indians did once upon a time.
>>37614 >And after that, either we achieve total world peace, or total nuclear annihilation. No in-between. Is there really a significant difference between those?
>>37614 From a certain perspective total nuclear annihilation is total world peace.
>>37613 Could attacking Russia proper be a billion IQ play by the Ukrops? At that point Putin will have to raise the alarm from "SpeZial Military Operation" to full scale war, and the propaganda would have a hard time explaining the Russians why their own cities are getting shelled by a country they've supposedly rekt. Wishful thinking obviously, this looks more like throwing a tantrum when you've lost in an RTS so you just bumrush your units into the enemy HQ to spite him of a quicker victory.
>>37618 I think it's more that the only way Ukraine has a fighting chance is either if they take Kherson or they disrupt Russian supply lines, so they are opting for the latter.
>>37618 No. They've been bombing just over the Russian border here and there for months now. 1 HIMARS with a 140km reach isn't going to change anything. But it will look good for the next Kharkiv Twitter counter offensive.

IIRC, lighter-than-air aircraft is against convention if used for delivery of actual weapons, but not any other military uses? Like scouting... or signal warfare. I mean, concentrating swarms of jammers and cloud dispensers pretty much directly on the satellite's beam path. Intercepting stratospheric targets is expensive, and will show the hands of NATO blatantly. Changing orbits is even more expensive, and ultimately futile.

Semi-related to Ukraine. But one of the most famous Twitter warriors, James Vasquez, who ran away from Ukraine after taking enough tourist photos to scam hundreds of thousands of people into thinking he's a fighter, lost a street fight to a nigger in New York today/yesterday. And now he's mad about it. Pics related. Also Rumble video: https://rumble.com/v1cf56r-ukraine-war-james-vasquez-the-famous-tiktok-mercenary-in-ukraine-got-his-as.html Context is James white knighted for a negress that the nig was yelling at because the negress scuffed the nig's sneakers. Fight starts at 1:40 and ends at 2:40. The video title makes the fight sound more severe than it really is. It was more of a scuffle than a fight, really.

>>37636 >How vulnerable is it to cruise missiles/counter artillery/drones? Extremely. >it must be glowing pretty bright and obviously high value targets. They launch them from far enough away from the conflict zone that artillery can't reach them without spending too much time dialing in/drones would be shot down, then like you suspect they immediately move them afterwards. When launching the HIMARS rockets they typically launch a massive artillery/missile barrage on Russian positions to use up Russia's anti-air capabilities and then use the HIMARS systems afterwards, since otherwise the rockets would be shot down. The Russians are getting pretty good at playing cat and mouse with these systems which is why the Ukrainians are asking for the longer-range variants since people are drawing parallels between Russia's competence and America's incompetence in the 90s doing something similar in the Middle East (which led the Americans to believe this cat and mouse tactic would work in the first place). >Hmm are we about to see a pivot to militarization of space or was it just Rogozin being a particularly useless shitlord recently? From the sounds of it the Russians wanted the ministry of Industry to take over the military industrial complex so they had to find a new position for the Deputy Defense Minister to fill. >Rogozin’s exit occurred on the same day that NASA and Roscosmos reached terms on a new agreement to collaborate on International Space Station missions >Rogozin sparked concern earlier this year after he bizarrely suggested that the International Space Station could plummet from the sky if Russia withdrew its cooperation. >Rogozin has also frequently touted Russia’s nuclear strike capabilities during the Ukraine war and once declared that cooperation with Western officials was “impossible" >Rogozin evidently got “rightsized” out of Roscosmos because of poor performance. >Putin went very public with his fury over corruption at Vostochny. The reasons for Borisov’s demotion from the position of deputy prime minister are similarly clear. In the wake of his disastrous Ukraine invasion, Putin is clearing house. Like Rogozin, Borisov failed to perform, instead enriching himself at the people’s expense. According to the Moscow Times, “Borisov vacates his post amid the failure of the state rearmament program, which affected the course of the war in Ukraine. Under him, the Russian defense industry received 2 trillion rubles annually, but the Russian army entered Ukraine on old equipment, with paper maps, and in three months it had practically exhausted its stock of precision-guided missiles.” Admittedly they're Western sources, but from what I can gather Rogozin, despite being Putin's friend, may have embezzled funds one too many times so he is getting shitcanned and sent to some administrative duties in Ukraine as a demotion since Putin cares more about cleaning house than about maintaining friendships right now. Either way he's probably gonna appear in some Ukrainian administrative bureau so it's just a matter of whether Putin is "saving" him from his own corruption, or "giving him one last chance in Ukraine" depending on who you ask. >Little more than a formality/semantics at this point. While I agree, formalities/legalities are a big deal for the Russians since they want to maintain the image of legitimacy domestically so they can broadcast it abroad later. The Ukrainians when shelling/sabotaging Russia proper have stuck mostly to military centers and logistics lines, so it would mark a "new stage" in the ware if they openly attacked "Russian territory" regardless of the legitimacy or illegitimacy of those two words.
>>37636 >Hmm are we about to see a pivot to militarization of space or was it just Rogozin being a particularly useless shitlord recently? The word on the grapevine is that Rogozin will be overseeing the former Ukro regions integration process from now on.

>>37593 Yeah, that's correct. It's been that way ever since Berlusconi was booted out by the rest of the elites for being too successful, too charismatic with the lower classes (big mistake in Italy) and too neutral (no one will bring this up, but Berlusconi was a huge friend with Putin and a lot of talks between West and other entities happened thanks to his support). What makes the Italian left boil is the fact that usually the pasta government is run by two coalitions who collude with each other in keeping the power balance as stable as it can be (similar to Republicans vs. Democrats). You usually have a progressive, leftist party which compromises on a lot of socialist issues in order to grab dat bread, and you have a conservative christian-democratic like party that tries to keep up traditions and work for entrepreneurs, but in reality it's much more progressive than the usual idea of a conservative. Then came mafia-backed, lolbertarian Berlusconi and he disrupted the entire system. All of a sudden the right HAD to be for small and big industry Italy is a bit different to other nations in that in-between mom and pop's and large companies there's thousands of small scale, regional companies, sometimes made up of artisans, that contribute immensely to the economy, the left HAD to be progressive, he basically did the unthinkable: forcing wops to get off their asses and work. But then when he started acting like the Watermelon Seller and basically having influence on or friendship with all kinds of foreign powers, the left (and bits and pieces of centrists and even right wingers) used the Judicial System against him to prop up a case of alleged sexual misconduct in order to take him down for unrelated corruption and fraud cases, basically assassinating his character and to this day his party has not recovered. Mind you, I'm not some Silvio boi, he's clearly done a lot of shady shit, but no shadier than (((Partito Democratico)))'s goons have done and certainly his policies helped Italy as a whole in a turbulent phase. >>37596 Well, to be quite honest they got almost 35% of the vote because they were seen as a force of nature strong enough to disrupt the usual PD / FdI "great coalition" governments that had kept the country in a political stalemate and economic stagnation for 20 years. In the beginning, especially thanks to the political expertise of Lega Nord, they were able to enact a lot of reforms that were considered almost impossible to pass a couple of years prior, but all of this only lasted for about a year, then it was business as usual. You do not undertand how fucking powerful being in "the Opposition" really is in Italy. The ruling party might as well have the power of Discord moderators during times of crisis. >Bad enough that the only way to recover the government's popularity would be to send the economy into a freefall with socialist policies. Yet it's not even socialist policies, it's full blown Soviet style systems of gibs and govt jobs. Technically, we never had any capitalism to begin with, considering that some professions have to pay up to 52 Percent of their income to the State.

The slow grind is because of the rough terrain and fortifications in the Donbass. As he says, once that region is consolidated, the Russians can break out and make rapid gains in the wide open rural areas.

EU Stalls on Ukraine Aid as Fears Spike of Gas Crisis at Home The European Union is falling behind on its high-profile promises to deliver a substantial aid package to Ukraine at the same time the bloc is confronting the prospect of severe economic pain at home. It was nearly two months ago when European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen proposed sending 9 billion euros ($9 billion) in emergency loans to Ukraine. So far, the bloc has only managed to agree on an initial tranche that covers a ninth of that target. Heading into the traditionally sleepy summer period in Brussels, the EU will face new challenges as the specter of a total cut-off from Russian gas and the tightening of monetary policy risks pushing the region into a second recession in two years. For Ukraine, the needs are urgent. The war-torn nation faces a budgetary gap of $5 billion per month to cover expenses and other urgent bills as it tries to fend off Russia’s attacks. Ukraine’s central bank remains the biggest source for financing the government’s budget and increasingly is raising alarms about the limits of its ability to provide cash through sovereign debt. “We hope we can convince all the partners that Ukraine really needs these funds and we will receive macrofinancial assistance by the end of the year,” Ukrainian Finance Minister Serhiy Marchenko said in a statement. The European Commission also committed in May to finance the bulk of the reconstruction of the country, which could amount to $750 billion, according to Ukrainian government estimates. That could prove an even thornier debate for the EU as there’s no agreement over how to raise the funds. The commission’s offer scared some member states, wary of the massive effort required to rebuild the country and potential corruption issues, people familiar with the discussion said. The impact of the war’s economic consequences is weighing on EU governments as they begin to worry about the risk of waning popular support for Kyiv in the coming months, particularly if energy becomes scarcer and pricier. Home Front When EU finance ministers discussed Ukraine aid at a meeting Tuesday, around a third of the 27 member states warned that new measures would be needed to support the most vulnerable groups inside the bloc affected by the ongoing crisis to prevent disaffection toward Kyiv, people familiar with the discussion said. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-07-15/eu-stalls-on-ukraine-aid-as-fears-spike-of-gas-crisis-at-home https://archive.ph/22jQE
Hungary Has Plan In Case War Reaches Transcarpathia - Hungarian Foreign Ministry >Budapest has a scenario in case Russia's military invasion "reaches Transcarpathia." However, Hungary prefers that these measures are not needed. This was stated by Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto in an interview with Hirado. >The Hungarian government will continue to pursue policies aimed at ensuring that the likelihood of Hungarian involvement in the war remains minimal. He also explained what Budapest would do if "the war reached Transcarpathia." "We have prepared scenarios for war, and the withdrawal of the Hungarian military from the border protection is partly part of this," the official assures. >However, the Foreign Minister did not explain how his words should be understood. Note that the Russian occupiers have already launched missile attacks on Zakarpattia region in early May. from Ukie state media https://ukranews.com/en/news/869303-hungary-has-plan-in-case-war-reaches-transcarpathia-hungarian-foreign-ministry I can't archive it.

>>37693 >9 billion euros ($9 billion)
>>37694 I can explain it: currently the Hungarian army is kept busy as plain border guards on the south to help catch the occasional group of darkies coming from the Balkans. If the Russians get closer they will instead send them to the Ukrainian border to do fucking nothing. Do note, there is a good chance that the current government won't last till spring, so his words are rather meaningless.
>>37695 Yeah I saw on my local news that airlines are overbooked because Americans are flying to Europe. the Euro is becoming worthless but the Euro prices on hotels stayed the same so it's becoming very cheap to travel to Europe for now.

Given what these threads have said about Slav use of the word "mine" I suspect that it refers to mortar shells, and not "mines" as we think of them, and Bangladeshi officials deny landmines were aboard.
>>37698 >every third place in Ukraine is named Oleksandrivka or Kamyanka They had zero imagination when naming places Now that I've checked, there's one Kamyanka above Donets, but the map that I use to track progress sparked it as Ukrainian controlled for months now, never changed hands.

I don't even think the Russians will have to do anything in the peace deals. Most likely scenario, Eastern European nations and EU will just flat out occupy the rest of Ukraine "to prevent further war escalation" while slowly eroding their nation-building efforts. IIRC Poland was already eyeing a bunch of villages that were having a similar treatment to the Donbass (removal of Polish/Russian influence and culture). Odessa is too important to fall to the Russians so I'm fairly sure the international community will just declare it an open city and eventually lead it to become Hong Kong-lite. >and possibly connecting to Transnistria I think that'll be a red-line once Moldova is pressured into joining NATO. As I've already said, all that the EU cares about is the grain fields and Odessa, they won't be parting ways with either but they won't mind creating a patchwork of countries in the region otherwise.

If you didn't know, Europe closing down their airspace to Russian commercial airplanes fucked tourism real hard since the usual route between East Asia and Western Europe has to go through hostile territory now. Israel and Saudis cooperating means that travel, while still costlier than it was, is at least achievable. >>37717 Comedian faggot should just get deposed by the military at this point, regardless if they sue for peace or continue to battle they'll at least be more competent.

>>37745 Alright, I got a chance to look at some other sources and this is indeed zerohedge being bombastic as usual. https://archive.ph/thYZc In laymen's terms, Gazprom has not met their quotas for the last couple months which could legally allow debt collectors in, for instance Germany, to commandeer and auction off Gazprom infrastructure. By claiming force majeure Gazprom is giving a legal excuse for why they have been unable to fill quotas. What this means for Germany is that the German government Uniper and RWE AG must go through their court system (complete with appeals process, etc.) in order to insist that the Russians violated their contractual obligations and were also capable of fulfilling them. Failing to go to court would put the German government (well, Uniper and RWE AG) on a sort of blacklist when dealing with other gas-exporting nations in other countries who would see the seizures of Gazprom's assets as a nonlegal action which would decrease investments into the German economy (something Germany can't afford right now). Obviously this also allows Russia to implement pseudo-sanctions against Germany as a sort of threat if they do decide to seize Gazprom's German assets or work against Russia further. Right now that would be the smartest move for Germany to rip off the bandaid in order to apply a real bandage. It also gives Gazprom legal justification to further reduce the amount of gas they are supplying since they are claiming inability to fulfill the contract, but it's not a hard "stop" on production. After Nordstream 1 is functional again I'm hedging my bets on Russia going back to supply gas to Germany at an increasingly small but present trickle until winter.
>>37764 What do you think, what are chances of Russia actually cutting off Germany from gas? There has been a lot of speculation on this, but so far, Russia seems content on selling energy to west, especially since higher prices kinda negate reduced volume.

>>37765 The economic sanctions have so far "backfired," (hurting Russia but hurting Western Europe worse), but the monetary sanctions really have been hurting Russia and forcing them to play nice with countries they don't get along with (China, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia). I think if Russia officially declares war and invokes article 4 of the CSTO against Ukraine they will cut off the gas it's why Russia wants to annex the Donbass region as fast as possible since it could let them invoke it. Or with Russia gradually decreasing gas production to their benefit they will have to start cutting countries off to sell to the highest bidder at which point Germany is the first on the chopping block come this winter. Unless Until Germany does something really retarded, the Russians will be content to continue selling them gas at below replacement levels, but the pipelines are all going to be used as blackmail to threaten a cold winter across Europe. People freezing to death was a common winter threat for most of human history that humans have only recently forgotten in the last couple generations is a serious issue. Same with starvation. In that respect I am lucky my parents grew up in abject poverty before "breaking into" the middle class since they know the real threat of death that comes with winter. Russia is understandably pissed, but the oligarchs don't hold Putin's zeal for ideology over profits.
>>37766 Nice read, thanks for your point of view. >Oligarchs What's the status of that particular strata in Russia? Haven't they been decimated by the west? I've read they allegedly wanted oligarchy to throw wrench in Putins political machine, but it backfired massively and actually further consolidated Putin, as jow basically no one with any sort of influence opposes him.

>>37766 I dont think so, at this point, cutting off gas would result in more economic damage to euros then trickling it in. The turbine maintanance is a good enough. Basically fuck knows, we will know on 22 if we are fucked but the chances of russia not fucking us over at this point are abysmal.
>>37737 >no allen key terrible meme >>37765 My question is, wouldn't Russia just lose a ton of money not sending the gas in the first place?

There are no M777 howitzers in Bulgaria, North Macedonia, or Greece, so they could only be sent from the American military base Bondsteel in Kosovo. Another option is to deliver by sea through the Greek port of Igoumenitsa and then by land route through Bulgaria.
>>37729 >They aren't trying to justify their actions to NATO (other than maybe Turkey) they're trying to justify their actions to India, China, and South America China and India are already set. It doesn't make any justifiable sense for those two countries to reverse course on Russia. Especially when they have the means to oppose NATO; China too economically connected and India is supposed to be the counterweight to China. Turkey is always on its own agenda but it is also on everyone's shitlist. Would make sense to go for some diplomacy and prevent Turkey from being overtly aggressive, but it certainly cannot be relied upon by either side when it is always attempting to expand its reach. Though with how it somewhat has NATO's balls with Sweden's and Finland's NATO membership, I would assume Turkey would not be so retarded as to completely switch sides when it can grab a few concessions. As for South America, their economies are more important then a war in Europe simple as that. I believe the world stage is already set. Russia can continue justifying its actions, but I believe it already has the support of previous allies or countries that prioritize their economies over the war. The real danger is that NATO continues to escalate things simply to appear strong in the face of Russia reacting strongly against a NATO provocation. . Even if NATO is a joke it still has enough power to take many countries down in a depression or WW3 scenario to save face.

https://archive.ph/gByZA >US Signals Ukraine It Can Use HIMARS Against Russian Targets In Crimea >The State Department on Sunday implied that Ukrainian forces are allowed to use US-provided High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) against Russian targets in Crimea, which Russia has controlled since 2014. >When the US first announced it was sending HIMARS to Ukraine, Biden administration officials said they received "assurances" from Ukrainian officials that the rockets won’t be used to target Russian territory. >When asked if the ban on Ukraine using the HIMARS to target Russian territory applies to Crimea, a State Department spokesperson told Antiwar.com, "Crimea is Ukraine." https://archive.ph/aLrlO >Russian Military Given Formal Order To Target Ukraine's Long-Range Weapons From US >Russia's defense ministry has issued a formal order for Russian troops to target Ukraine's long-range weapons and artillery supplied by the West, specifically the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) provided by the United States. >In Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu publishing the order on Monday, the Kremlin is sending one of the most provocative messages to Washington thus far in the war, signaling the two powers continue stumbling toward direct confrontation. >"Army General Sergey Shoigu... instructed the commander to use surgical strikes and crush the enemy’s long-range missile and artillery means," the Russian Defense Ministry said according to TASS. >... >Also likely behind the Kremlin's rationale for stepping up targeting against the HIMARS and other long-range munitions is the potential for missiles reaching deeper into Russian territory. On Saturday, for example, a Ukrainian intelligence official openly declared the military should begin striking at Russian facilities inside Crimea, going so far as naming the HIMARS as capable of that. This is fine.

Crimea is Ukrainian territory currently occupied by pillaging foreign hordes from Russia. Only Russian propaganda claims it to be Russian in any way, shape, or form. Ukraine has a natural right to expel invaders from its borders.

Hungary no longer objects to transit of weapons to Ukraine through its territory >Hungarians are ready to pass through their territory all the assistance provided by other countries to Ukraine, including military, Deputy Minister of Foreign Economy and Foreign Affairs of Hungary Levente Magyar said during a meeting with mayor of Lviv Andriy Sadovy, Lviv City Council reports. >“We are amazed by the events that are happening here, we really sympathize with you. Over the past 200 years, we have fought with Russia three times. These wars were of a life and death struggle. Unlike many Western partners, we felt for ourselves that this is such a confrontation with this huge eastern state. At the same time, Hungary itself will not supply its weapons – this is our strategic position. However, third countries can use our territory,” the press service of Lviv City Council quoted Magyar as saying on Tuesday. >In addition, Hungary is ready to accept Ukrainian children in its resort facilities and camps. The Hungarian delegation also offered to help in the treatment of civilians and military in their medical institutions, and also assured of their readiness to provide 1,000 scholarships for Ukrainians at their universities. from Ukrainian state media since nobody else is reporting it. https://www.kyivpost.com/europe/hungary-no-longer-objects-to-transit-of-weapons-to-ukraine-through-its-territory.html the way I understand it is that Hungary still won't allow weapons to transport directly to Ukraine but will allow transporting materiel to Romania or Poland.
Ukrainian army appoints chief rabbi to assist troops and boost morale >Between brit milah ceremonies, and providing tefillin kits from Israel to the frontier, Cohen also finds time to make yarmulkes — which are very popular among the troops — with the inscription "Jews protect Ukraine" >"Even non-Jewish Ukrainian soldiers ask me for yarmulkes so they won't be accused of Nazism like the Russian propaganda tries," Cohen said. "While I was helping rescue Jewish refugees in Ukraine, I began to receive requests from Israelis and Ukrainians regarding military aid," he said. "There was an Israeli whose brother was drafted into the army, and I helped him obtain a helmet and a vest from Israel. I also purchased 20 helmets and 20 bulletproof vests from a friend in the country and gave them to a group of Jewish soldiers who trained in Kyiv." Slowly, rumors about Rabbi Cohen's volunteer work spread by word of mouth, and he was approached by people who sought to enlist in the Ukrainian army but were rejected. That's how he made his first contact with senior Ukrainian military commanders. Last weekend, when he returned from the front in Eastern Ukrainian, Cohen was told he his appointment as the chief rabbi of the Ukrainian armed forces had been cleared. >Rabbi Cohen says that no one supports him financially. He has a wife and nine children who left the country two days before Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine in late February. As a result, he divides his time between Israel and Ukraine, spending one week in the former for every three weeks in the latter. When he last visited Israel, Rabbi Cohen purchased special cases for the tefillin. The cases are designed to survive under harsh conditions of combat, heat, wetness, etc. When asked about the duties of a military rabbi, Cohen said that "the duty of a military rabbi is to raise morale and to help the troops through the difficult situations. In the Ukrainian army, there are approximately 1,000 Jews, which is actually a significant minority among the 800,000 soldiers who serve." >"I just got back from the front. It's hard out there. The front spans hundreds of miles, and sometimes soldiers lack basic necessities. As one of the commanders told me, sometimes a shovel can save lives. A party was under Russian artillery attack, and those who had a shovel dug a ditch and were saved, while soldiers who did not have one were exposed to artillery and died." Besides the special kits, Rabbi Cohen also provides soldiers with spiritual teachings. "War is no time for deep Jewish literature, but a time to cite prayers that can lift the spirit of the troops." https://archive.ph/WDn7K https://www.ynetnews.com/article/ryp0g5z29

>>37854 >what exactly did the Soviet Union gain from giving lands from Russia to its Soviet Republics? In the case of Ukraine i think it was to jump the bureaucracy in the Crimean island and just transport goods to ship it ASAP. Khrushev worked as an inspector or some sort of oversee in the Ukraine region so he had first hand accounts on seeing the retarded transport shenanigans that happened so when he landed the big job he gave/loaned/transplanted Crimea to their jurisdiction for much more efficient work. When Ukraine separated from the Soviet Union they interestingly forgot about this but Russia didn't mind that much because both governments projected themselves as longtime allies AFAIK. When Russia saw Ukraine leaning west they merely asked it back, didn't receive reply and when they had justification to take it they went for it. Many people don't scare away from naming the battles of Odessa and Sevastopol as russia's cold hours but conveniently forget a minute later they were russian hubs not long ago, even within their lifespans.
Internet chatter gives me the feeling that HIMARS is the Wonderweapon to top all Wonderweapons in this war. And so what’s the Wonderweapon after the HIMARS for when Russia defeats the HIMARS?

>>37855 >Hungary still won't allow weapons to transport directly to Ukraine but will allow transporting materiel to Romania or Poland. In that case nothing changed, the government just tries to play both sides by taking such half-measures. The only difference is that now they are more public about it in order to get good goy points, so that the EU will give them the funds they are currently withholding. You see, Orbán was running a campaign of gibsmedat, and managed to empty the coffers to the point that they cannot balance the budget without that money.

>>37768 >What's the status on oligarchs? IIRC the ones that backed Putin have held onto their power while it's a bag of mixed nuts for the rest with a general trend towards "being less relevant" than before. The oligarchs exist and aren't being politically purged, but they are being forced to work for the state instead of for their own interests internationally. Some are satisfied with this arrangement since they care about their power more than the money, while several others are not since they can't live like kings any more. >Haven't they been decimated by the west? Take the beef oligarch who opened Russian McDicks as a good example. Before he was exporting his beef and petrol, but now he is using it domestically. Overall he has less power than he did before, but he has more power "internally" than he used to and the Russian government is giving him tax write-offs to keep propping up the Russian economy.
>>37785 >They can just do it Russia doesn't want to build an empire on "might makes right" they want to build an empire on "rule of law" like the Carolingians did. America didn't become a great superpower on taking land when they felt like it (ignore the brief stint of imperialism in otherwise irrelevant nations), they became a great power on applying a set of principles/legal precedents in their negotiations with other countries. It was separating from the past precedent of rule-of-law that led to (is leading to?) the collapse of the American global empire. Russia isn't just taking Ukraine and justifying their actions, they are setting up the playbook that Asia and Eurasia will play by moving into the next few decades, so they are covering their own ass in the process.

>>37854 >why exactly was Ukraine enlarged by the Soviet Union, and what exactly did the Soviet Union gain from giving lands from Russia to its Soviet Republics? I'm not /his/pilled, but the way a Kazakh (ethnicity) Russian language teacher explained it to me, the Ukrainians were extremely religious (which was frowned upon), and Lenin legitimately believed the Soviet Union would last forever. Therefore since they were all "brothers" to the Soviet Union, borders didn't matter and the idea was that those territories would be better served by local governments than by a Moscow central power. Ceding the territory also gave them the excuses they needed to send Russians into other countries (not to ethnically replace in most cases but to act as first-generation craftsmen and teachers who were supposed to interbreed with the locals; they were sent as exiles in a sense so that they wouldn't get in trouble for wrongthink back home but could still be put to use for the Soviet Union). >How much autonomy The Soviet Union granted a lot of autonomy to most of their exclaves. Ukraine was something of an exception in this regard largely because of German PoWs post-WWII who couldn't be sent back. Or so I was told. >Annexing parts of Ukraine Honestly at this point Russia probably wouldn't have any problems with splitting up Ukraine along lines similar to pic related. They'd leave Kievan Rus "Ukraine Proper" as a demilitarized buffer state and cede some land to Belarus as a reward, Romania so they don't panic about ethnic Romanians in Ukraine, and Moldova to make them play nice in exchange for sea access, while leaving the other regions to be fought over by the rest of Eastern Europe (maybe helping out the Hungarians in exchange for trade deals).
>>37880 >Moldova to make them play nice in exchange for sea access What about Transnistria? Moldova keeps asking for trouble while the former always played ball with the russians.
>>37855 Nevermind. Hungary is cruisin' for a bruisin' it seems. >In addition, Hungary is ready to accept Ukrainian children in its resort facilities and camps. Oh. It's just an excuse to deal with the failing tourist industry while getting some tax payers down the line. Nevermind. The transport part is probably just a technicality for Ukraine to agree to this deal. >>37856 >"Even non-Jewish Ukrainian soldiers ask me for yarmulkes so they won't be accused of Nazism like the Russian propaganda tries," Cohen said. In other words the Ukrainians expect to be captured and are afraid of being tried like Azov dogs. >>37866 The best part is Ukraine had Eastern European HIMARS equivalents at the start of the war, they were just all destroyed early in the conflict. Russia's running into problems because the Ukrainians are launching salvos of all involved weapons, not jsut the HIMARS systems. >What's the next Wunderwaffen Probably military aircraft since they're starting to run out of SU-25s that can be built from scratch and are already asking for aircraft specifically. >>37867 >Spoiler I stopped following engagements and started following the big picture a couple months ago. If the anon who posts videos doesn't know where to look he's probably not going to find them. >>37881 >What about Transnistria? The only reason Transnistria exists as a pseudo-Russian exclave is because of a Russian power plant that currently provides energy to most of Moldova and Russia not having direct land access to it. If Russians have direct land access to said power plant, they would probably be willing to "solve" the ongoing conflict in exchange for Moldovan neutrality. Moldova has shown they are practical in the past playing both the Russians and the Romanians when it suits them, so the little country known for hookers and human trafficking would probably agree to a neutrality deal with the Russians in an instant in exchange for sea access and preferential trade deals with Russia (and Russia would agree to it in exchange for a buffer state between them and Romania who hates them). That's all speculation of course.
>>37880 This sort of partitioning theory never makes sense to me because I don't see how countries like Hungary or Poland could ever agree to it. Accepting the territory would be implicitly legitimizing Russia's actions. Their alignment obliges them to say "you have no right to offer us that land since it belongs to Ukraine", and to reject it since accepting would make them complicit in violating Ukraine's territorial integrity. Whether they want the land or not, accepting it would be a political nightmare.
>>37883 Is not about them accepting it, is about them sending "peace-keeping forces" to un-stable ares that just happen to align with historical, cultural and strategic areas of influence and to deter further Russian aggression, with time those areas could be slowly integrated into Poland/Hungary...

>>37864 >When Ukraine separated from the Soviet Union they interestingly forgot about this but Russia didn't mind that much because both governments projected themselves as longtime allies AFAIK. When Russia saw Ukraine leaning west they merely asked it back, didn't receive reply and when they had justification to take it they went for it. I see, so this is sort of like Italy and Austria when it comes to South Tyrol, or Belgium as a whole? A situation where as long as open borders or alliances stand neither side gains much from starting shit over borders? >>37878 >Russia doesn't want to build an empire on "might makes right" they want to build an empire on "rule of law" like the Carolingians did It's funny cause if you forget the fact that one is a Social Democracy and the other an Oligarchy, Canada and Russia have more policies in common than Canada and the USA. Both are countries whose people want stability, justice and social order at the expense of individual freedom and fringe ideals. Heck, even the cuckservatives in Canada lean more to the left than anywhere else in the world, so it might as well be a one party state too.
>>37880 >Ceding the territory also gave them the excuses they needed to send Russians into other countries (not to ethnically replace in most cases but to act as first-generation craftsmen and teachers who were supposed to interbreed with the locals; they were sent as exiles in a sense so that they wouldn't get in trouble for wrongthink back home but could still be put to use for the Soviet Union). This isn't exactly how an Ukrainian friend of the family taught us that the whole story went. This is like a few years back and she didn't give a shit about either Ukraine or Russia, but the way she told us this migration was pre-planned by the State to make sure that ethnic tensions could be quelled by outsiders. Basically, when forced into conscription, soldiers from like Kazakhstan would be sent to be stationed in Ukraine, or Ukrainians in Tajikstan or Tajiks in Tannu Tuva or whatever else. They would shuffle them around so that the people with guns and the eventual nationalists would be of two different races, in order to prevent stuff like what ended up happening in Romania. IIRC this is also why Russia was the country that fell the most easily and painlessly, since the soldiers stationed in Moscow were ethnic Russians and didn't really want to shoot at their own people. Another fact conveniently left out of the history books is that the foreign Gulag PoWs that swore by Communism (or that were already known as communists but were forced to enlist) were offered Soviet citizenship for their troubles. Mind you, I fucking hate the commies, but it's an interesting fact. >Romania so they don't panic about ethnic Romanians in Ukraine Wouldn't that be indirectly the death of the EU? If Romania accepted a deal like that, then all the other countries would start eyeing each other's clay since the rest of the EU didn't veto the annexation. >>37882 >Moldova has shown they are practical in the past playing both the Russians and the Romanians when it suits them, so the little country known for hookers and human trafficking would probably agree to a neutrality deal with the Russians in an instant in exchange for sea access and preferential trade deals with Russia (and Russia would agree to it in exchange for a buffer state between them and Romania who hates them). That's all speculation of course. Moldova holding Odessa would be such a hilarious maneuver, it's like giving a mansion to a Gypsy.
>>37884 >Is not about them accepting it, is about them sending "peace-keeping forces" to un-stable ares that just happen to align with historical, cultural and strategic areas of influence Pretty much this, Kuwait is an example of this being a successful tactic. >>37887 >Officially confirmed that Western powers have been tightening their supervision of Ukraine/directing Ukrainian actions I'm starting to think that the only solution to this would be to just cede the land to other countries, they really can't do jack shit >Germany talking about deindustrializing This deserve that "sad Spongebob music" treatment

That makes sense. >I think Putin is the only one who doesn't at this point. Apparently >>37852 stole the words right out of my mouth. It would be entertaining. But I don't really want Ukraine to get nuked, although destruction is inevitable in proxy wars between great powers. Ultimately it's for the better, though.

The fact that they are now pretending not to know what’s happening is a strong indicator that the war is going badly for Ukraine. Damage control won’t work just like it didn’t work with Iraq.

>>37910 I think they drank their own koolaid and came to believe that the Russian front would collapse with in just a few weeks from western weapons hitting them from the front and western sanctions hollowing them out on the home front. Maybe aided by an oligarch coup of Putin or something. Or hell maybe I'm completely wrong and the purpose of this from the very beginning was to maneuver Russia into a compromising position and force them to use WMDs and that way the west could respond in kind and they could get the Great Reset of to a bang, literally. Only as it turns out Russia is more than competent enough with conventional warfare, especially when they fight like Russians and don't try to play US-German style blitzkrieg games or what ever it was they were doing in the first weeks of the war. Now all the glowniggers are stuck with the fact that Russia will eventually win and all those western arms funneled into Ukraine have basically just been thrown down a bottomless pit and have strained western military stocks at a time where the economy might not let them replace them quickly. Or worse those weapons are now out in the wilderness just waiting for some insurgent to bring down a commercial airliner or possible even one carrying some head of state of one country or another.

You're forgetting that Russia is capturing some of these weapons, allowing them to reverse-engineer and learn how to defend against them, and possibly build new weapons that borrow from Western tech. They've already captured a damaged m777, and they'll probably get an intact model down the line; that's on top of drones, javelins, and other shit. >They did not think this shit through.

Ukraine, Russia sign U.N. deal to export grain on Black Sea ISTANBUL (AP) — Russia and Ukraine signed separate agreements Friday with Turkey and the United Nations clearing the way for exporting millions of tons of desperately needed Ukrainian grain — as well as Russian grain and fertilizer — ending a wartime standoff that had threatened food security around the globe. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov signed separate deals with U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres and Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar. The ceremony in Istanbul was witnessed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “Today, there is a beacon on the Black Sea,” Guterres said. “A beacon of hope, a beacon of possibility, a beacon of relief in a world that needs it more than ever.” “You have overcome obstacles and put aside differences to pave the way for an initiative that will serve the common interests of all,” he said, addressing the Russian and Ukrainian representatives. The deal will enable Ukraine to export 22 million tons of grain and other agricultural products that have been stuck in Black Sea ports due to the war. Ukrainian and Russian military delegations had reached a tentative agreement last week on a U.N. plan that would also allow Russia to export its grain and fertilizers. Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to Ukraine’s president, stressed Friday that Ukraine and Russia would sign separate agreements, saying Ukraine “does not sign any documents with Russia.” Guterres said the plan, known as the “Black Sea Initiative,” would open a path for significant volumes of commercial food exports from three key Ukrainian ports in the Black Sea: Odessa, Chernomorsk and Yuzhny.” It would “bring relief for developing countries on the edge of bankruptcy and the most vulnerable people on the edge of famine.” “It will help stabilize global food prices which were already at record levels even before the war – a true nightmare for developing countries,” Guterres added. Ukraine is one of the world’s largest exporters of wheat, corn and sunflower oil, but Russia’s invasion of the country and naval blockade of its ports have halted shipments. Some grain is being transported through Europe by rail, road and river, but the prices of vital commodities like wheat and barley have soared during the nearly five-month war. The deal makes provisions for the safe passage of ships. A control center will be established in Istanbul, staffed by U.N., Turkish, Russian and Ukrainian officials, to run and coordinate the process. Ships would undergo inspections to ensure they are not carrying weapons. Podolyak insisted that no Russian ship would escort vessels and that there would be no Russian representative present at Ukrainian ports. Ukraine also plans an immediate military response “in case of provocations,” he said. Guterres first raised the critical need to get Ukraine’s agricultural production and Russia’s grain and fertilizer back into world markets in late April during meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv. He proposed a package deal in early June amid fears that the war was endangering food supplies for many developing nations and could worsen hunger for up to 181 million people. Russian and Ukrainian officials have blamed each other for the blocked grain shipments. Moscow accused Ukraine of failing to remove sea mines at the ports to allow safe shipping and insisted on its right to check incoming ships for weapons. Ukraine has argued that Russia’s port blockade and launching of missiles from the Black Sea made any shipments unviable. Ukraine has sought international guarantees that the Kremlin wouldn’t use the safe corridors to attack the key Black Sea port of Odesa. Ukrainian authorities have also accused Russia of stealing grain from eastern Ukraine and deliberately shelling Ukrainian fields to set them on fire. In Washington, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said the U.S. welcomes the agreement in principle. “But what we’re focusing on now is holding Russia accountable for implementing this agreement and for enabling Ukrainian grain to get to world markets. It has been for far too long that Russia has enacted this blockade,” Price said. https://archive.ph/E15oP https://apnews.com/article/russia-ukraine-middle-east-global-trade-a2c89d94a0f8473b40a1fcde5710bda8

>>37963 I like how Russia is gritting their teeth for brownie points/global stability while Ukraine is acting like a stubborn mule about this even insisting on a separate treaty. >>37964 The more likely scenario is that Ukraine will ship weapons an Turkey will look the other way while Russia loses their shit.
>>37951 >Western leaders can't answer if there is a point where too much has been given to Ukraine >Polish document leaked >Shows Ukraine has lost most of their trained troops, officers, and training personnel >Ukrainians are not using the m777 howitzers as "artillery snipers" like they were designed but for artillery barrages >He listed Russian casualties but he listed a dozen different numbers back-to-back and I'm not rewatching that >Ukrainians getting desperate between the bridge and nuclear power plant strikes >Lavrov: "We don't have any deadlines for the military operation" >"Putin made it clear, denazification and demilitarization, which means no threat to our security from Ukraine" >"Geography-wise our last assessment assumed Ukrainian peace talks at Istanbul which didn't happen" >Lavrov says Kherson, Zaporozhia, and "other areas" are now on the table >Mercouris interprets some other interview questions as "Russia will push West until Lviv, until Zelensky is dead and a friendly government is installed, or until Russian public opinion shifts >Did not rule out Africa-Russia summit in Odessa next year >Russia is using Western response to justify their actions internationally >It's working if the Saudis are anything to go off of >It's making other nations cold against the West as much as it is justifying Russian responses and further annexation of Ukraine
>>37967 >Ukrainians are not using the m777 howitzers as "artillery snipers" like they were designed but for artillery barrages Can they do any sniping without those fancy digital fire-control units?
>>37968 It was brought up in previous threads that the fire control units are only necessary for the extended ranges of the howitzers. So it's "good enough" if you're looking at ranges most guns can do but that's going to put them in jeopardy of counter battery... which is not good for a towed gun.
Seeing much more videos of Russians using kamikaze drones of Lancet 3 and KUB variants. Have they picked up the production pace of those drones or what?
>>37977 The big thing holding back Russian drone production was the Defense Industry's insistence on only using parts made in Russia (whether the chassis, the microchips, etc.). Russian drone production began this last winter and they got their first working assembly line running in March. They're probably finally getting the supply chain quirks worked out and have started serialized production now.
>>37983 Basically exacly what I've been hearing, you hit nail on the head.IIRC Russia has a law in place that dictates all military drone production must be made within Russia because security concerns. Which is why the whole Iran drone rumor trip kinda confused me. Russian defense industry seems to be picking up the pace, between the new T90 deliveries and now, increased drone production. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
Mercouris explains some of the more political aspects of Putin and Lavrov's actions. Not gonna do a summary for this one but someone else is welcome to if they think it's worth mentioning. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjd9LK53grk
>>37964 Yeeep. Shenanigans are already starting and it's not even a week after the document signing. A missile strike on Odessa this morning hit a tugboat and at least one other small military boat. Pro-Russian sources are justifying the strike by saying local intelligence reports that the the Ukrainian military used the signing to immediately begin shoring up defenses, and this strike is a warning from Russia to not play Fuck Around and Find Out (paraphrasing.) But Russia denies having anything to do with the strike, and Turkey is taking a neutral stance as Russia investigates the incident.
There are at least two (maybe three) parallel universes in Kryvyi Rih area. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epMOVlcc2OQ Russians allegedly pushing at Zaporizhia front again. Probably to put pressure on Ukrainian forces near Bakhmut/Kherson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TItr0BDiWcc Donetsk remains a clusterfuck. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKQL5TfLNbo 10 out of 12 HIMARS (minus the 4 on their way from America) are accounted for according to Russian sources. All 4 in Donbass are kill (hence American replacements). Kharkiv systems being moved towards Donbass. This doesn't actually invalidate one of the last 2 being sold to Russia unlike DPA misspeaking, but it does put pressure on that story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7oKEc3h2FE Which he corrected here. Now all but 1 HIMARS has been accounted for (minus the 4 on their way from Burgerland), reinforcing the story of Ukraine selling one to Russia. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRgNNiVATs0
>>38014 tbh amount of himars launchers matters less then the ridiculous amount of rockets it has.
In other news, this guy apparently acts as a counter-Z to the one in the linkdump in case anon is interested in that kind of thing: https://www.youtube.com/c/UkraineCombatFootage/videos I am not.
>>38015 The HIMARS systems were just meant to replace the MLRS systems destroyed in February so I don't really know why everyone is treating them like a wunderwaffen, but I'll report what I see anyways. And you're not wrong, but the ridiculous amounts of rockets may not be that big of a deal when Ukraine keeps using a ridiculous amount of munitions. Russians use an even more ludicrous amount, but the Russians have functional supply lines/factories to supply them.
Is DPA okay? He's getting more and more cringe on twitter last couple of days.
>>38021 He's pissy about being shadowbanned on jewtube and with getting fed false information by some of bis sources, so he's just taking it out on people in traditional Chinese (Singaporean) fashion.

Allegedly there's deep shit happening over in Moldova with the opposition party trying to kick out the pro-Western government. The Ex-President of Moldova (arrested on treason charges and supposed to be under a gag order) has more popularity than the acting president or prime minister and is calling for the current government to resign. Shenanigans seem to be afoot. The vice-chairman of the pro-Russian opposition party was apparently thrown in jail as well and there were protests over it. The Western government apparently pissed everyone off with a pride parade in Chisinau as well. I verified bits and pieces through some Western sources that were buried that it wasn't flat-out propaganda, so have a Russian news article: https://archive.ph/wmh5Q CHISINAU, July 24 - RIA Novosti >Supporters of the opposition Shor party are protesting in front of the General Prosecutor's Office in Chisinau, demanding the release of the arrested vice-chairman of the political force Marina Tauber, RIA Novosti correspondent reports. >The demonstrators also demand the resignation of the leadership of President Maia Sandu , accusing the government of persecuting the opposition. The picketers are holding banners and chanting "Freedom to Marina Tauber", "Hands off the Shor party", "Stop persecuting the opposition". >Earlier, prosecutors charged the politician with knowingly receiving party funding from an organized crime group and falsifying a report on the financial management of a political party. The day before, Tauber was arrested for 30 days. >The head of the National Center for Combating Corruption, Iulian Rusu, spoke on the TVR channel about Moldova about the likely liquidation of the Shor party, if it is proved that this political formation was illegally financed. He acknowledged that the investigation became interested in the situation around the protest on July 19, which was organized by the Shor party in the central square of Chisinau . >The "Shor" party organized and held a protest under the slogan "New Life" in the center of Chisinau on June 19. More than 40 thousand people (of a population of 3.2 million) took part in the action. They expressed their dissatisfaction with the rise in prices in the country and the inaction of the authorities. >The day before, the police did not allow the organizers to set up a stage for speakers. As Tauber stated at the time, the Shor party planned to share the stage with the organizers of the concert, which was planned after the protest. The concert itself was to be held with the participation of Russian performers - Philip Kirkorov , Dava, Ivan Dmitrienko. However, the event was disrupted by the police, who blocked the transport carrying machinery and equipment for the stage.

The general consensus of the update videos posted ITT is that Russia has had Ukraine on the back foot for months, are there pro-Ukranian accounts/channels that agree with that current state of the war?
>>38057 Sounds like it's time for a purg- >The Western government apparently pissed everyone off with a pride parade in Chisinau as well Never mind, Cykas welcome What's the more likely scenario though? Russians invading or Romanians invading?
>>38066 of course not. they're all dedicated to propaganda & fake news, building up their audience's hopes to eventually get shattered.
In other news: When I went shopping today, German beer prices were back to pre-war levels. Looks like no happening after all.
>>38066 No, and there never was. There was one for a couple months into the war, I forget the name, that at least reported Russian gains instead of completely ignoring them. But after Russia started making huge gains in Mariupol/Izium it went full retard like every other channel. >>38071 Russia is building a big, beautiful war in Ukraine, and the USA and Europe are paying for it.

>>38119 >Realistically wouldn't this be GG? Yes and no. No because it'll be like the LPR phase of the war, where Russia is positionally in a GG moment, but Ukraine still somehow finds enough bodies to slow the Russians from closing out the victory. Ukraine will be able to hold on, until it can't. Though the head of the DPR says liberating the DPR won't take longer than the end of August. I wish I could know what he knows to make this claim. >>38095 It may be something lost in translation, but the Telegram version of the spy story also says Ukraine had plans to poison the Russian pilot after delivery of the plane. >Possibly luck out in finding an enemy that will sell you very valuable secrets. >You want to kill him anyway because fuck Vatniggers.

This conflict seems to be quite comparable to the second Sino-Japanese war. Of course, I don't mean the manpower and resources aspect, because in that regard Russia is more comparable to China, but the overall feel with the Western sanctions and support is somehow similar.

The overall culture and social norms are just shitty. Maybe in the future, Wikipedia can be used to springboard a far better project. I think a fundamental problem is that there's no editorial board like real encyclopedias have. There's no authority to appeal to for deciding content, it's all just crowd-sourced, which leads to biased garbage. "Consensus" and "reliable sources" can easily be gamed. Pardon me for going off, it's just something that's irked me for awhile.

Cold showers as German city of Hanover reacts to Russian gas crisis https://archive.ph/7Hz93 >In a bid to save energy, Germany's northern city of Hanover has decided hot water will no longer be available for hand washing in public buildings, or in showers at swimming pools, sports halls and gyms. Public fountains are also being switched off to save energy, and there will be no night-time lights on major buildings such as the town hall and museums. Mayor Belit Onay said the goal was to reduce the city's energy consumption by 15% in reaction to an "imminent gas shortage" which posed a significant challenge for big cities. The rules apply to heating, too. Public buildings will not have any heating from April to the end of September each year, with room temperatures limited to a maximum of 20C for the rest of the year - with some exemptions. The city is also banning portable air conditioners, heaters and radiators.

Apparently there is another parallel universe developing (or perhaps some serious Copa Cola) as Pro-Ukrainian sources are insisting that the Antonovsky bridge is completely destroyed and intelligence agencies are claiming 75,000 dead Russians (mere weeks after different intelligence agencies said there were maybe 15k dead Russians and that was a liberal estimate) with at least 80 HIMARS rockets launched. They're also falsifying headlines (first two pics): https://archive.ph/bdiBz Meanwhile the Pro-Russian sources are saying the bridge's superstructure is fine and there were only about 30 HIMARS rockets launched (still a fuckhuge amount, don't be deceived).

US and UK intelligence agencies are begging for just one more month because of complete loss of faith in them by Western leaders. If China decides now is the time to fuck with the Burgers, it could be the final countdown for this war as America is forced to drop support or face a "two front" war. Russia has already stated when they finish taking Donbass they will give Ukraine a final offer (some say they already gave it to them) and if they refuse they will raze the country to the ground East of the Dnieper (phase 3) before sending ethnic Ukrainian insurgents/brigades into Ukraine proper to enact regime change and install a pro-Russian government (phase 4). I don't think it's quite that bombastic right now, but it's clear that the Russians have run out of fucks to give about Ukrainians and Europe as a whole. Whatever happens within the next month will pretty much determine whether the rest of the war will go the way Russia wants or not short of direct military intervention from another country. It's the "final moments" for Ukraine to have a change to turn it around, but maybe not the literal final moments of the war unless there is a citizen's uprising before the Russians can force regime change.

>>38238 Yes, that one.

The use of encryption is forbidden, unfortunately (though in some ways understandably); but hypothetically speaking, there might be ways around that if one happened to live under some sort of oppressive regime, ways which would render your communications a garbled mess to outsiders without technically being encryption. Thank God I live in the Land of The Free™®℠©, and would never have any use for such unhealthy paranoia. Oh, and there's also the fact that local/regional nets could be linked to one another around the world through Internet gateways, which, as far as I know anyways, *can* use encryption on the Internet side without running afoul of any regulations (at least in Burgerstan).

Russia "sought to depict" Azov as neo-Nazis, wew. >Ukraine's new Prosecutor-General Andriy Kostin said he had opened a war crimes investigation into the blast. His office added that it believed about 40 people were killed in the strike and 130 were injured. >Daniil Bezsonov, a spokesperson for the Russian-backed separatist Donetsk People's Republic, said the strike had been a "direct hit on a barracks holding prisoners" and the number killed might increase. >Russia's defence ministry said the strike had been carried out with US-made Himars artillery and it accused Ukraine of a "deliberately perpetrated" provocation. The ministry produced fragments of what it said were rockets fired by the Himars system. >Russia accuses Ukraine of being willing to massacre its own prisoners of war, saying Kyiv insisted that prisoners from the Azov Battalion be housed in this particular warehouse. >With independent journalists not able to access the site, there's little anyone can do at the moment to verify the claims. Ukraine says it has a mountain of evidence, including an intercepted radio conversation between Russian-backed separatists, in which they talk about a series of explosions deliberately engineered by the rebels themselves. Other Ukrainian sources blame mercenaries from Russia's Wagner group. >Mykhailo Podolyak, another adviser to President Zelensky, said the Russian allegations were "a classic, cynical and elaborate false flag operation" designed to discredit Ukrainian authorities. "We demand a reaction from the UN and international organisations," he added. Andriy Biletskyi, a founder of the nationalist Azov Battalion, said a number of the unit's soldiers were among those killed.

The National Bank forbade money changers to display currency exchange rates on street signs >National Bank of Ukraine tightened the requirements for money changers and forbade them to display their exchange rate outside the cash registers, "attracting additional excessive attention to them with any digital values or symbols." >The NBU announced this on the evening of July 29. >Also, in order to control how money changers follow the order of currency exchange, there must be video surveillance cameras on their premises. In addition, information about the cash register (CRA) used by exchangers will be transmitted to the National Bank — this will make it possible to strengthen tax discipline because exchangers practically do not pay income tax. The obligation to submit information to the Register of premises in which currency transactions are carried out has also been restored for exchangers. >Such a decision was made in order to reduce speculation on the course and create a truly competitive environment. These changes do not apply to banks, as today, practically no abuses in the field of currency exchange have been recorded by them. If it is recorded, similar restrictions will be introduced. >The NBU explained that money changers artificially increase the exchange rate on the foreign exchange market, thereby actually supporting the existence of "ATM tourism". At the same time, demand and supply in the non-cash segment of the foreign exchange market stabilized. Thus, the National Bank believes that the exchange rates set by non-bank exchangers in recent days are based on a speculative principle. >On July 21, the National Bank changed the official exchange rate of the dollar in Ukraine for the first time since the beginning of the full-scale war. It grew by 25% and now stands at 36.5 hryvnias per dollar. It was explained as follows: "This step will allow to increase the competitiveness of Ukrainian manufacturers, bring exchange rates closer to different groups of businesses and the population, and support the stability of the economy in the conditions of war." Accordingly, the increase in the exchange rate of the hryvnia against the dollar will also affect the increase in prices in Ukraine — by 2-3%. from Ukrainian state news https://babel.ua/en/news/82228-the-national-bank-forbade-money-changers-to-display-currency-exchange-rates-on-street-signs https://archive.ph/pCGIz
>>38303 It basically just makes a hole in things with a very slightly scorched outer ring. The pressure wave from the explosion is strong enough it smothers any fire it could start before it can start except in the case of fuel or ammunition, which essentially lights after the pressure wave, and it doesn't last long enough to set fires after the initial blast (unlike thermobarics). The primary weaponized effects of a unitary explosive warhead is the pressure/blast wave itself and the fragmentation of the casing and the debris from whatever they hit. Note, unitary warheads on their own are also weaker than equally sized HE warheads because they are low collateral penetrator warheads designed to punch through buildings, not have the greatest damaging effect. The Russian photographic 'evidence' very clearly depicts the result of thermobaric warheads... which won't even fit on a HIMARS... and is predominantly used by the Russians in this conflict, because the US/NATO hasn't deployed their own over there precisely because of things like this.

>>38308 Why would the russians blow it up using thermobarics when they could just as easily and quietly make them disappear without a fuss? Blowing it up themselves makes no sense since russians know the western media would never report that anyways.

What are the chances of a war starting between the USA and China next week, now that Nancy Pelosi is still intending to visit Taiwan next week?

I know you mentioned thermobarics but anyone who's lit aerosolized components knows that those have a pressure blast too.

>>38352 And in the end it doesnt even matter with the amount of deaths and suffering present in this conflict everyday.

Air-raid sirens sounded in northern Kosovo https://archive.ph/7dlEG >Air-alarm sirens sounded in northern Kosovo, in Kosovska Mitrovica, in the evening of July 31, Serbs are building barricades at Rudare, on the Pristina-Leposavic highway and near the town of Zvecan, the Vecernje Novosti newspaper reported. >It is noted that about 200 Albanians have gathered in the southern part of the city near the bridge that leads to the north side. There, according to the newspaper, the Serbs plan to march en masse to the place where barricades are being built. >Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said July 6 that Belgrade had refused to sign an agreement with the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo on mutual recognition, despite resolutions and calls from the European Parliament. >Starting from August 1, the documents, issued by the Serbian authorities, will no longer be valid in Kosovo. The authorities of the self-proclaimed republic announced the date of termination of the Serbian documents. >Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic stated recently that Albanian authorities were planning to "arrange hell" for the Serbs living there by cancelling the documents issued by Belgrade. He also added that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic will meet with representatives of Serbs in Metohija and Kosovo, who are in a difficult situation, "which will culminate from hour to hour. >Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that at midnight the Kosovo Police will start a force operation against Serbs, RIA Novosti reported. According to him, the authorities of the self-proclaimed republic will block entry to citizens with Serbian documents and demand that vehicles be re-registered with Kosovo license plates. >The head of state stressed that Belgrade would try to keep the peace at any cost and urged citizens not to react to provocations. He also appealed to Western countries that supported Kosovo's independence and called on them to influence the authorities of the republic. >Police in Kosovo blocked the administrative crossing point "Brnjak" in central Serbia, reports "Vecernje Novosti". >It is noted that this happened after 6:15 p.m., thus blocking the movement of vehicles, passengers and cargo through this crossing point from the territory of the province. >Local media also state that numerous fighters from the Rapid Response Units have gathered in front of the new base of the Kosovo Border Police, armed with automatic weapons, helmets and bulletproof vests. >Police in self-declared Kosovo said they had closed two checkpoints because of the blockage of routes by Serbs. >Petar Petkovic, director of the Serbian government's Office for Kosovo and Metohija (KIM), said that the ban of the authorities of the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo on entering the region with Serbian identity cards and Serbian-issued license plates from August 1 was unacceptable and was aimed at expelling Serbs from the region. >The Serbian Defense Ministry denied reports about military entry into the territory of Kosovo and Metohija >Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova called on Pristina to stop provocations and called discriminatory the rules of forced replacement of personal documents of Serbs as of August 1 >The diplomat stressed that Belgrade will not remain indifferent when it comes to a direct attack on their freedoms, and Kosovo, knowing this, deliberately aggravates it. Serbian Defense Ministry denied reports of confrontation with Kosovo police https://archive.ph/ZaMDu >The Serbian Defense Ministry issued a statement saying that the Serbian army had not crossed the border with Kosovo and was not involved in tensions in the partially recognized republic. Tonight, sirens and gunshots rang out in Kosovo, and Kosovo Serbs began blocking roads and building barricades. >"Due to the large amount of misinformation that the Pristina administration deliberately broadcasts and which is spread through fake accounts on social networks and some websites claiming that there has been a conflict between the Serbian Armed Forces and the so-called Kosovo Police, the Defense Ministry states that the Serbian Army has not currently crossed the administrative border and has not entered Kosovo and Metohija territory in any way," the Serbian defense ministry said. >Today, July 31, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that the situation in Kosovo has become very difficult for Serbs. Earlier Albin Kurti, the prime minister of the partially recognized republic, announced that Kosovo Serbs need to re-register their cars according to Kosovo norms by September 30. In addition, Pristina intends to ban entry with Serbian documents from August 1.

I'm not sure if this theory was posted before but i have a feeling that putin is stalling on purpose to make sure that EU runs out of gas and then during the winter he will similtaniously shut off the pipe and try to take over the entire country, hoping that EU will be pre-occupied with internal issues to react in a meaningful way. I just have a feeling that if Ukrainian government were to collapse the country would be split between Hungary, Poland and Russia.
>>38554 >Putin is Stalin on purpose If only anon, if only.
>>38554 Doesn't really work that way, the gas issue in Europe is blown out of proportion (probably on purpose to gain support for conflict in the population). Even if Putin does that it won't actually cause enough of a disruption for this plan to work
>>38554 I'd say it's more likely that the gas issue is to just pressure Germany to support negotiations since Ukraine can't do anything on it's own.
>>38554 Things would be a lot easier if that was the case. Instead everything is in a state of slow rot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYzpy0WatAg No real update from Belarusian man. Most everything is in stalemate and will probably stay that way for a week or two. There are now enough Russians in Kherson to launch an offensive operation on Nikolaev. Russians are setting up to encircle a few small chunks of Ukrainians on the Eastern front hoping to form a new bulwark to get around Ukrainian defenses. I don't think the Russians are stalling for EU gas reasons but I do think they are stalling to prevent casualties since the Ukrainian soldiers are starving in several areas based on videos posted to social media and propaganda channels. The guys near Donetsk are especially having issues getting basic supplies which will be exacerbated come winter since most of them are sleeping outside, but winter doesn't really start in Ukraine until late November. Attrition favors Russia at this point unless a third player gets involved in a meaningful way since hungry soldiers under constant artillery fire are soldiers likely to flee their posts or surrender.
>>38565 Not in Germany, it's gonna get fuckin wild as soon as winter hits, and heating prices skyrocket. Besides, a good chunk of electricity here is generated by gas powerplants. Another big issue is the fact that the rich russian gas is used as a precursor to many chemicals produced on an industrial scale in Germany, some of them being fertilizers, important for the effective agriculture of entire nations. Heck, German agriculture is built completely on nitrate fertilizers, and without it, they won't even be able to grow corn for their biogas reactors, so double fuck. Gas is no joke, and Germany is going to be in deep shit this winter.

Something happening on Donetsk front. Reports say DNR forces manage to break trough main defensive line at Peski and Marinka, also some advance at Avdeevka in the last two days. Advance is significant, since that was considered as quiet front and Ukrainians have been fortifying both Peski and Avdeevka for the last 8 years. Waiting for further information.
Mercouris confirming >>38628 while Europe has apparently started to consider a diplomatic approach finally now that they realize Ukraine as a country is on the brink of collapse right now. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHDHeUhBZs8
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmfZZA0j5IQ Not too much happening, or rather the same slow Russian gains as always. Zelensky referring to Donetsk fighting as "hell on earth." German journalists wrote an open letter begging Zelensky to stop as apparently the Russians are slamming Pirske with roughly 4.5 artillery strikes per minute (roughly one strike every 13-14 seconds, or 6500 per day). Ukrainian morale there is plummeting after some Ukrainians tried to retreat and were killed by friendly fire while no body cleanup teams have been sent in several days due to the shelling. Ukrainians reporting that the Russians are reducing sets of fortifications into ruins roughly every 10 minutes. Imagine being stuck in a trench with no food, with intermittent artillery rain overhead, and rotting likely burnt corpses of your comrades all around you. Zaluzhny is begging Zelensky to send artillery back to Pirske but it's apparently needed for the Great Kherson Counteroffensive™. LiveUA updated in the middle of Dima's update on the region showing Ukraine losing a fuckton of Pirske which got a good chuckle out of him. Allegedly if Pirske falls that will be it for Avdeevka and he suggests that the soldiers there would be better retreating since nothing good will come to war criminals. Marinka is collapsing because they have no artillery. Ukrainians tried a couple counter-offensives in different Eastern regions and mostly just succeeded in losing several hundred soldiers.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=va1UG5NAAUk I didn't actually watch DPA's update but skimming through the chapters it looks like he's not got anything particularly new. Still probably one of the better analysis if you're looking for a multi-day summary.
>>38607 That's actually a good question, and possibly one for it's own separate thread but, How "primitive" of an aircraft could a country get away wit producing that could still hold up against an enemy in a war? Does newer tech absolutely trump old tech when it comes to aircraft or could you say build 10,000 MiG 19 or Starfighter clones or half a million Ohka's or something as part of your Fuck Around And Find Out Airforce and it function as, at least, a deterrent force?

>>38681 Ukraine made good use of Su-25s at the beginning of the war, but eventually you run out of trained men/volunteers and every launch becomes a suicide mission. It's a good deterrent early on but it won't win you a war if the enemy is intent on shooting them down with AA batteries. >Accidental or barrier troops? Depends who you ask. The "official" story went something like... >Soldiers appealed for more supplies >Were told no >Said they were going to flee >Barrier troops called their bluff >Said they were going to flee for real by [date] >Get laughed at >Follow through because they have nothing left to lose >Ukrainian artillery "mistook them as Russians" because "nobody was supposed to be there and they weren't given retreat orders" >Proceeded to shoot them down It's likely that only the commanders on the ground know the truth and will take it with them to their graves.

I wonder if towns such as Marinka or Peski will be rebuild after the war. Some of them have gone through Verdun tier bombardment.
>>38811 Now Ukraine is claiming that two Russian rockets struck and damaged the nuclear plant. So far, Ukrainian officials seem to have offered no explanation for why Russian artillery supposedly attacked itself.
>>38823 Even 80's cartoon villains aren't as stupid and evil as what Ukraine is portraying Russia as.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I51kuwW11Cc Zaluzhny confirmed for next on the chopping block after saying the fall of Avdeevka will be Zelensky's fault for pulling artillery out of the East and for letting America/Britain determine the engagements instead of him. Poor guy.
>>38829 One of the commenters mentions that prolonging a clearly-lost war for the sake of spitefully harming the enemy is a war crime. What's the actual law/treaty there? It's hard to look that sort of thing up because any "list of war crimes" is a list of war crimes that have been committed, not a list of things that are considered war crimes. Of course, that's probably because the de facto definition of war crimes is "whatever the enemy does, even though it doesn't count when I do the same thing", so it might make people get uncomfortable or start asking questions if de jure acts-based definitions were too prominent.
>>38830 >What's the actual law/treaty there? They are probably referring to article 6(a) from the Nuremburg trials. >Article 6(a) of the London Agreement of 8 August 1945, the statute of the International Military Tribunal, defines crimes against peace as “planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties, agreements or assurances, or participation in a common plan or conspiracy for the accomplishment of any of the foregoing” You could reasonably argue that continuing a clearly-lost war is in violation of the Nuremburg trials.

7/30/22 The escalating regulatory attack on agricultural producers from Holland and the United States to Sri Lanka and beyond is closely tied to the United Nations’ “Agenda 2030” Sustainable Development Goals and the UN’s comrades at the World Economic Forum (WEF), numerous experts told The Epoch Times. Indeed, several of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are directly implicated in policies that are squeezing farmers, ranchers, and food supplies around the world: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/un-world-economic-forum-behind-global-war-farmers-experts Cattle inventory has dropped to its lowest level in years as it continues to decline: https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/beef-prices-set-surge-further-farmers-sell-cattle-herds AS PLANNED: Western sanctions against Russia are the most ill-conceived and counterproductive policy in recent international history. The economic war is ineffective against the regime in Moscow, and devastating for its unintended targets. World energy prices are rocketing, inflation is soaring, supply chains are chaotic and millions are being starved of gas, grain and fertiliser. The west and its peoples have been plunged into recession. Leadership has been shaken and insecurity spread in Britain, France, Italy and the US: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2022/jul/29/putin-ruble-west-sanctions-russia-europe In 1959, Fidel Castro seized control of Cuba and immediately removed all guns from citizens. His mass-murdering communist regime went door to door to force citizens into turning over their firearms. Totalitarianism and gun confiscation are always intertwined. The most disturbing part is that it's already happening to our neighbors in Canada and war could soon be coming to the US. On Friday, the US House of Representatives passed an assault weapons ban (217-213 vote included 215 Democrats and two Republicans, with five Democrats voting against the bill): https://www.zerohedge.com/political/canada-unveils-mandatory-ar-15-buyback-program-us-house-passes-assault-weapons-ban Communist China threatens to shoot down communist Pelosi's plane (communist Jews from both nations are eager to bring the US into war to collapse America once and for all, that's also why they are hell-bent on disarming the Western world): https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/pelosi-leading-delegation-asia-taiwan-stop-not-clear It’s an open secret that China is buying up American homes in large quantities, but investors from Beijing recently have been aiming towards a new target for their real estate ventures, reports indicate.

8/5/22 Part 1 The United Nations Paris Climate Agreement is already being put into action around the world, as communist criminal oligarchs use governments to capitalize on their controlling visions and monopolistic investments. In their pursuit for total control, the global elite look to play ‘god’ with the Earth’s resources and environment, while micromanaging human activity, destroying farms, threatening sovereignty, and reducing the population. These insane climate controls will inevitably reduce crop yields, deliberately destroy animals, and cripple small farms. The Dutch government estimates they will have to shut down 11,200 farms and kill livestock owned by 17,600 farmers: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-08-04-paris-climate-agreement-already-threatening-small-farms.html JIM STONE COMMENTS: THE FARMERS ALMANAC IS PREDICTING A SEVERE WINTER. THE FARMERS ALMANAC IS ALWAYS RIGHT. So the farmer's almanac is predicting a soak and freeze. And it is probably correct, historically the Farmer's Almanac has been EXTREMELY accurate at predicting how winters and planting crops are going to go. Will 2022 bring Biden's "Dark Winter"? I would not be surprised. This prediction comes as OPEC has told Biden they will refuse to increase oil output to handle American shortages, but we all know how that could be dealt with - by simply allowing American oil companies to drill as needed, which Trump had going at full speed only to have it all shut down by Biden. There is a motive to the madness, BET ON IT. Weimar echoes: energy rationing kicks off in Germany: https://www.centromachiavelli.com/en/2022/08/03/germany-energy-rationing/ While the EU remains determined to punish Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, a shortage of energy and food is forcing the group to ease sanctions. The EU has already added exemptions to its sanctions to reduce disruptions to essential goods, while the USSA is now pushing an oil price cap instead of an embargo: https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/why-west-easing-its-sanctions-russia German Chancellor Olaf Scholz recently announced that his government is investigating the possibility of not shutting down the country’s last three nuclear power plants this year, contrary to previous plans and the campaign promise of their coalition partner. The worsening consequences of the artificially generated European energy crisis through political blunders could mean a serious loss of face for the Green Party, whose politicians and intellectuals have been demanding the shutdown of nuclear power plants for many years: https://rmx.news/germany/german-energy-turn-could-fail-together-with-the-greens/ “The issue of the risk of power cuts in France does not date from the war in Ukraine, and on several occasions in recent years, RTE, the EDF subsidiary responsible for transporting electricity, had warned of potential risks of power cuts. France has committed crazy amounts of money to renewable energies and, at the same time, neglected the maintenance and development of our nuclear power plants. Nuclear reactor shutdowns due to corrosion problems are a consequence of this situation. In 2021, our country was an exporter of electricity; this year we will have to import a lot. Our leaders’ lack of long-term vision, as they did not see this energy crisis coming even though it started long before the war in Ukraine, has led us to an absurd situation where we will have to consider electricity rationing for the first time in 40 years.” https://www.lefigaro.fr/vox/economie/oui-nous-allons-manquer-de-gaz-et-d-electricite-et-notre-facture-va-exploser-20220722 The chance of “widespread civil unrest” occurring in the UK as a result of people being unable to afford to pay their bills due to the cost of living crisis is “inevitable,” according to one campaigner. With energy prices set to soar even higher in October as a result of the sanctions on Russia, many Brits have resolved to refuse to pay their bills as part of a growing backlash some are comparing to the poll tax riots: https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/widespread-civil-unrest-looming-uk-over-cost-living-crisis
8/5/22 Part 2 Moscow is assessing the possibility that a Washington DC agency played a part in the creation of Covid-19. In a press briefing on Thursday, the head of Russia’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Forces, Lieutenant-General Igor Kirillov, claimed that US-backed bio-laboratories in Ukraine had been conducting questionable research and clinical tests on Ukrainian citizens, and that “over 16,000 biological samples, including blood and serum samples, were exported from the territory of Ukraine to US and European countries.” He went on to explain that a statement from Jason Crow, a member of the US House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, who warned Americans that their DNA samples could be used to create targeted biological weapons, caused Russia’s Defense Ministry to “take a fresh look” at the origins of the Covid pandemic. “Taking into account the interest of the US administration in the study of narrowly targeted biological agents, such statements force us to take a fresh look at the causes of the novel coronavirus pandemic and the role of US military biologists in the emergence and spread of the Covid-19 pathogen,” Kirillov said: https://www.rt.com/news/560246-usaid-covid-origin-moscow/ Moscow perceives as inevitable the arrival of a multipolar world order, which would replace a brief moment of US-led unipolarity that emerged in the 1990s: https://www.rt.com/russia/560133-world-west-breakup-irreversible/ Russia’s central bank has called on Russian manufacturers and non-financial service providers to convert their dollar and euro holdings to “friendly” currencies such as the Chinese yuan: https://www.rt.com/business/560235-russia-dumping-dollar-euro/
8/5/22 Part 3 In a new interview published Thursday in the South China Morning Post, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed his wish for a direct conversation with Chinese President Xi Jinping: https://www.scmp.com/week-asia/politics/article/3187580/volodymyr-zelensky-seeking-direct-talks-chinas-xi-jinping-help?module=lead Russian forces shelled the Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant for the second time in the last few hours, with three shells hitting the site of the plant: https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3544437-russian-forces-shell-zaporizhia-npp-for-second-time-in-past-few-hours-energoatom.html In Kharkiv region, the Ukrainian military liberated the village of Dibrivne in the Izium direction and moved the front line: https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-ato/3544224-ukraines-armed-forces-liberate-dibrivne-village-in-kharkiv-region.html The Russian government is sending data to the UN proving that it was not involved in the attack on the Elenovka detention center, in the Donetsk People’s Republic. Moscow alleges that it was the Ukrainian forces themselves that operated the attack in order to prevent confidential information from being revealed by the prisoners during the court hearings. It remains to be seen whether the case will be investigated by UN observers: https://southfront.org/russia-sends-data-to-un-proving-kiev-attacked-detention-center/ Russian-led forces claimed new victories near the city of Bakhmut. The offensive is being carried out from various directions. On August 3, the DPR People’s Militia confirmed control of the villages of Semigorye and Travnevoe located to the south-east of the city. Advancing from Svetlodarsk, Russian and DPR units reached the town of Kodema. On the south-eastern outskirts of Bakhmut, Russian-led forces are advancing from Klinove. Clashes continue in Vaselaya Dolina while Zaitsevo remains under control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. On August 4, Russian assault groups entered the city of Bakhmut from the eastern direction. Units from the Wagner group are operating in the area. The Ukrainian defense collapsed under heavy fire from Russian artillery. Ukrainian forces also suffered heavy losses after a failed attempt to counterattack Russian positions in the town of Pokrovskoe located on the eastern outskirts of the city: https://southfront.org/ukrainian-defenses-collapse/ A Russian warship has entered the bay of Sevastopol with what appears to be a “burnt side” after an alleged Ukrainian missile strike, as reported on Friday, August 5: https://euroweeklynews.com/2022/08/05/russian-warship-enters-sevastopol-bay-with-burnt-side-after-possible-strike/
8/6/22 Part 1 Criminalization of political opposition hits the USSA under communist-democrat regime: https://newspunch.com/experts-warn-alex-jones-show-trial-sets-precedent-for-silencing-independent-media/ Supply Chain Problems Will Persist Because The System Is Being Sabotaged: https://alt-market.us/supply-chain-problems-will-persist-because-the-system-is-being-sabotaged/ Without decentralized mining of raw materials, local manufacturing, locally sourced goods, local food production and locally integrated trade networks there can be no true stability. All it takes for the system to implode is one or two crisis events and the economy’s ability to meet public demand stagnates. The system doesn’t completely stop, but it does slowly shrivel and degrade. The war in Ukraine has been the go-to scapegoat the past few months for supply chain disruptions, but these issues started long before that. Years of central bank stimulus and fiat money creation have triggered the inevitable landslide of inflation/stagflation that alternative economists have been warning about. Price inflation is a direct contributor to production declines and supply chain disruptions because costs continually rise for manufacturers. Also, wages of workers cannot keep up with rising prices, inspiring many employees to quit and look for work elsewhere, or attempt to live off of government welfare. All of this leads to less supply, or slower production and thus, even higher prices.

8/6/22 Part 2 Amnesty International has in a surprise shift placed its human rights scrutiny on Ukraine in a fresh report released Thursday. It immediately sparked a firestorm of criticism as both Western pundits and Kiev officials themselves blasted the findings as unfair. The Amnesty report said investigators had found evidence of Ukrainian forces launching strikes from within populated residential areas, as well as basing themselves in civilian buildings in 19 towns and villages in three war-torn regions of the country from April through July: https://www.amnesty.org.uk/press-releases/ukraine-military-endangering-civilians-locating-forces-residential-areas-new The head of the "occupational administration" of Kherson, Volodymyr Saldo, was taken to the hospital in serious condition after the assassination attempt: https://ukrainetoday.org/2022/07/13/the-head-of-the-occupation-administration-of-kherson-was-hospitalized-in-serious-condition-after-the-assassination-attempt/ Russian troops continue to open fire on Mykolaiv Region.

Price inflation will remain high. The US is indeed officially in a recession today. Two consecutive negative GDP prints IS a recession, this is a fact that no one can change, including Joe Biden, Paul Krugman or Wikipedia. Reality does not answer to these people. The system is breaking, and certain people greatly benefit. A regional conflict with China on top of the Ukraine war could be the perfect smokescreen for a financial and supply chain collapse that was going to happen anyway. But when the mainstream media talks about the triggers and culprits, they’ll never mention central banks and political corruption, they will only talk about Russia and China: https://www.infowars.com/posts/supply-chain-problems-will-persist-because-the-system-is-being-sabotaged/ ▲ FLASHBACK: How The Ukraine Conflict Is Designed To Benefit Globalists: https://alt-market.us/order-out-of-chaos-how-the-ukraine-conflict-is-designed-to-benefit-globalists/ The US-led drive to isolate Russia through sanctions has not succeeded, as half the countries in the Group of Twenty leading global economies refused to sign on, Bloomberg reported on Friday. Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turkey have not joined the sanctions that were adopted by the US, UK, EU, and their allies Australia, Canada, Japan, and South Korea. Some nations, like China and South Africa, have openly criticized the restrictions. The G20 nations account for around 85% of global economic output: https://www.rt.com/business/560298-us-sanctions-russia-failed/ With Russia’s tragic invasion of Ukraine, the world’s energy system has been thrown into tumult. Clashing geopolitical dynamics and disrupted supply chains have created a full-blown energy crisis. Ongoing fuel shortages and pressing climate concerns require a balanced solution that is sustainable, reliable, and innovative. Fortunately, there is a proven energy source that checks each one of those requirements. The United States can promote global energy security and strengthen its national security by accelerating the deployment of innovative nuclear energy technologies. The United States has a long history of leadership in developing nuclear technologies, and there has been significant progress made in recent years to realize the potential of the next generation of nuclear power right here at home. The benefits are tangible and significant: nuclear energy ensures both domestic and international access to a carbon-free, reliable, and secure baseload energy source, which is critical to maintaining service, avoiding societal disruption, and decreasing our reliance on foreign fossil fuel sources: https://nationalinterest.org/feature/case-nuclear-how-us-can-bolster-global-energy-security-203992 ▲ MY COMMENT: Increasing nuclear energy would put less demand and strain on oil and coal for sure, but the US no doubt will still heavily rely on fossil fuel for commuting as we have a massive country with very well spread out populations. I've addressed some of these issues here: https://archive.ph/daI3t As for "decreasing our reliance on foreign fossil fuel" that is exactly what Donald Trump was doing for America before Biden came into the White House and canceled all the major domestic oil and gas leases: https://archive.ph/asbqh

>>38952 His /shelter/ thread got locked. He was dumping in an independent thread so I merged him over here, so if he's still using this thread then the system is working as intended. It's fine... Probably. >>38950 I'm not gonna ban you for posting news, but do you mind either sticking to "one IP" or putting something generic in the name field so anons can filter if they want to since these are walls of text?
>>38886 >Remind me again how long did it take for Coalition Forces to btfo Iraq in the first Gulf War Kuwait is the size of a city >and then btfo them again in 2003? Technically they didn't, and to be fair they committed massive amounts of war crimes against civilians aka operated at pleasure and will. Also Israel had munched tons of the equipment before with their bombings of jet fields and oil reserves. It still took some months. >so I guess Bucha didn't happen It didn't >that video of some Buryatian mongoloid commiting a warcrime on a Ukrainian soldier A soldier is not a civilian nor was the two dudes who got stabbed in the eyes and then had their throats slit by an angry guerilla
Any word on the vaunted Kherson counter offensive? I was seeing a lot of suggestion that if it were still going to happen at all (as opposed to the rumours that it had collapsed before it even began), it'd go off today.
>>38964 The Russians found where they were staging and hit it hard ~2 weeks ago, so it had already collapsed before it even started. Which makes three attempts to launch a Kherson offensive; it's a blackhole for Ukrainian forces. It's clear that the U.S. and Britain want to retake Kherson to gain more control over the black sea to the point that the eastern fronts are suffering from supplies being diverted. With the 2nd vid from >>38843, (Nikolaev is Mykolaiv unless I'm mistaken) the Russians are the ones that are making gains on that front so a Ukrainian offensive is even less likely.
>>38970 >With the 2nd vid from >>38843, (Nikolaev is Mykolaiv unless I'm mistaken) the Russians are the ones that are making gains on that front The reports I heard were that the traffic jams were because Ukrainian officials were locking down the city and banning people from entering or leaving, so that anyone still trying to move could be presumed to be a Russian agent and also so if the Russians approach the city, they have meatshields.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPo77lUv-Js Old news: >Nikopol has likely already been reduced to ruins due to Russians shelling anything that even LOOKS like a military target getting near the nuclear power plant >Russians knocking out troops North of Kherson in massive numbers >Ukrainians gave orders to start an offensive operation towards Kherson >Mechanized brigades and marine corps refused to follow the order outright >Russians have begun a counteroffensive towards Nikolaev >Pirske is still being cleared >Russians declared they took the farms outside of Marinka >Ukrainians are trying to counteroffensive in Sverodonetsk area despite not having the forces to do it >Ukrainians pushing back in Izium Didn't really watch the rest as closely as I should but Dima's hungover voice made it seem like it was probably not important/just speculation.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s39p_eqD94s Mostly just listened as background noise, but it sounds like Ukrainians are doing political purges in Nikolaev going through people's phones and such. Ukrainians are picking up lots of reserve troops around Chernihiv/Sumy. Rumor is that Ukrainians are going to use this reserve forces in order to attack Russia proper in order to force the Russians to stop their offensive. Doing so would trigger the CSTO which would be really fucking stupid. Apparently each Oblast has promised Putin to conscript a brigade to support the war effort in order to maintain their autonomy/sovereignty. Dima thinks this will be a new phase of the war with Russia either overwhelmingly pushing forward on the current front or possibly attacking Sumy/Chernihiv with these autonomous forces.
>>38993 >Doing so would trigger the CSTO which would be really fucking stupid. I'm surprised Ukraine hasn't tried harder to do this, if it wanted to scare the West into believing that Russia is on the war path against all of Europe. Ukraine sure is half-assing a lot of this war. Except for killing civilians and unarmed prisoners.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U87imtAWIMQ Mercouris talked a bit about humanitarian politics and such. Thinks it's a sign of the Ukrainians becoming increasingly reckless/desperate. >>38997 It's still a massive gamble that looks less and less appealing with each day of the war. There's always the likelihood chance that Ukraine won't receive any more support if it becomes a clearly unwinnable war due to Belarus/Kazakhstan/Kyrgyzstan/Tajikistan becoming involved.

>>38992 After seeing the aftermath even Sadam's staunchest opponents agreed he was right and many of the officials are in Iran's pocket. US did succeed if we count the objective being "avoid Israel being attacked in the next few years" but not in the "regime change" because even in Sadam is gone his ideals are practically there, just without the money because the fields were bombed and now Iran manages some of them, although i think the US/"Canadians" also grabbed some.
