Back in November last year, Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) maven Defmon dug into the satellite imagery of a Russian coal mining facility in the interior Yuvileine, on the outskirts of Luhansk. Looking at the pictures, he found many warehouses with lots of cars around, large gas stations, warehouses, many buildings that looked like administrative or warehouse buildings, and traffic on the roads around the complex.
Outside of the GMLRS rocket arsenal, Russia has built a stockpile near Russia’s only inhabited city, Luhansk.
The presence of this production facility, 90 kilometers from the front, provided a major incentive to supply long-range ATAMS rockets to Ukraine. The successful struggle between Kharkiv and Kherson in Ukraine began with a massive disruption of Russian networks. Similar future success may require similar planning work (or “making” as the military kids say). Ukraine has yet to receive American-made rockets, but it has acquired long-range missiles from the United Kingdom and, more recently, France. And then this happened.
Just as the GMLRS rockets blocked the Russian advance on Kherson and Kharkiv in Ukraine, Ukraine is humiliating the Russians and controlling them with their new long-range missiles. And if the ATACMS finalists are green? O Lord.
The arrival of American bombs that are clearly exploding has caused Russia to shake, because it immediately said that Ukraine had hit the site, citing several explosions. This could be the sound of bullets going off, but it could just be the arrival of several Storm Shadows. That coal mine area was a very rich area.
However, the equipment of American teams and they are coming, and my god I wish they had been sent quietly. Confusion over them has reached unheard of heights, something that Vladimir Putin has been happy to encourage.
The idea that Russia did not use them is nonsense, and there is a lot of evidence to prove it. This video has been making the rounds today on Twitter:
But there are some really good ones that I still remember well, like these:
Or this one:
And they will be using them in Ukraine long before 2022:
I looked at that one actually He has been with me since the early days but I don’t get it. It was a car driving through a bomb cluster as seen through the dash cam. It was sad, to say the least. The point is, there is nothing new about Russia using cluster bombs. Ukraine also had them, and Turkey has provided them with additional military equipment, even though Ukraine uses theirs against military targets (what an idea).
But the problem is now getting worse because Turkey gave it quietly, and the numbers seem to be less. The US has a big supplies, and promises to ease the massive arms shortage that has slowed Ukraine’s progress. Could these weapons cause an unexploded ordnance (UXO) problem in the future? Sure, but there is already a huge UXO problem in the places Ukraine will use them—the front lines. There are parts of Ukraine that will not be accessible to the general public for many, many years. The bombings of Ukrainian groups will be part of the problem.
Meanwhile, who can explain what’s wrong with this tweet:
This is the wrong thing to say about Putin without meaning. To be clear, story It has those words, but how many people will go through and read the paid article? RTFS (read bad news) doesn’t work when the news isn’t available to the masses.
Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal he gave me good luck Here are the latest reports on Donald Trump:
Former President Donald Trump, who wants to return to the White House next year, has accused Biden of risking World War III by supplying Ukraine with weapons, the type of weapon Russia has been using extensively, and has boasted that he could end the war. dispute within 24 hours, without saying how.
Yes, Russia has been using mass weapons a lot, in addition to thermobaric weapons and incendiary weapons and anything that can throw Ukrainians who do not have military or nuclear weapons. And unlike Ukraine, Russia has been paying the price against civilians.
For the people of “Ukraine has no air support”, what do they think the American power does on the battlefield? It does things like:
Honestly, I don’t know what magical role people think air support plays in close combat (as opposed to anti-Terrorist operations). It destroys enemy weapons, warehouses, and command and control positions behind the front lines. Drones and HIMARS/MLRS are taking care of everything in this battle. Ukraine’s problems have nothing to do with air support, and everything to do with the lack of demining equipment and proper weapons training, when dealing with Russian military equipment – both of which would be difficult under the best of circumstances, for good reason – combat forces well trained.
Ukraine has been systematically undermining Russia’s military, weapons, and leadership for months now, which is exactly what the US would do if this was their war.
Early Sunday (US time), many Russians said Ukraine had been liberated
Old Maiorskasouth of Velyka Novosilka towards Mariupol.
I’ll bring back the map so you can see where it is:
As interesting as it sounds, don’t bet on Russian sources, even if they say what you want to hear. Ukrainian workers later announced that “the Army of Ukraine to control the north of Old Maiorska, Donetsk region.” The next statement said that “In Shakhtarsk region, north of Old Maiorska, in the Donetsk region, the enemy tried to regain the lost ground.” Both say that Ukraine controls the northern part of the settlement, except the second statement adds that Russia made one of their surprises. outside their canals struggles. However, the northern part is higher than the rest of the area, making it impossible for the Russian defenders to stay.
This approach seems to be bearing more fruit in Ukraine, and this can be a good thing. The approach to Mariupol has only one line of defense, unlike the sections seen directly to Melitopol to the west of here.
