  1. We have not even started our first game and it is already over
  2. Yes, with all the logistics problems it seems Russian troops will be in considerably worse situation than Ukrainians, who fight on their own territory, with outside help from governments and citizen fundraising for winter clothing and equipment (I believe such donations matter too). I was thinking of camp fires both armies will burn during the winter, it will be visible from far away. I expect Russians, who are masters of procedures' neglecting, will get some spectacular ass whooping because of this.
  3. Most probable explanation is that it were Ukrainian S-300 which went astray. It is soviet product after all, this happens from time to time. There is some important nod of energy infrastructure 6 km from Polish border, Russian Kh-101 missle/missles were probably aimed at it. Ukrainians luanched the S-300 and something went wrong.
  4. I'd add Putin may also expect that another wave of Ukrainians will move to the UE this winter. This, together with growing prices, may increase discontent and weariness of populations and decrease support for Ukraine. Last week I was sitting at a bus stop when and old lady came and sat to take some rest. She started talking to me about energy prices and how dastardly nation Ukrainians were. And that they would thank us for help cutting our throats. And that she's glad she would be dead soon so she would not experience this thanks. Unlike me and my daughter who was sitting there with me. I felt temptation to tell the lady that if she would not stop talking bullshit something bad may happen to her before her natural death. When the bus finally arrived we got on it with the speed of light.
  5. Russians are said to be running out of cruise missles and, as it was stated above, Ukrainians are already able to take down most of what's coming with systems they recieved. I think they will get some more of them anyway. There were some dicussions in USA about training Ukrainian pilots on F-16/F-15, so why not start doing it now, couple of months is sooner than never (if is not happening already). Just a wild speculation, but it might be possible to find some US airforce veterans of Ukrainian descent...
  6. Russians say it was a provocation in order to escalate, what a suprise.
  7. The explosion took place in grain drying facility, there is still very little hope it was an accident (sb smoked in a dusty silo or something like that). But judging by the pictures... nope.
  8. I imagine my work place tomorrow and all the panicking people. And tornado in media.
  9. Not an expert, I just repeat what Ive read, but I think airplanes are pretty good at taking cruise missles down and, unlike AA systems, at other things too.
  10. Some predict Ukraine will get some airplanes soon. Btw Lublin is a city in Poland, capitol of Lubelskie voivodship, so I hope the missle was not aimed at it.
  11. Russians claim they had prevented the landing but it does not have to be true, of course. Since the peninsula is isolated from Ukrainian controlled territory, I wonder if they intend to hold the ground. Maybe it was meant to be temporary - clean the place of Russians (as they launch missles and send drones from there) to secure some other operations planned for near future, then retreat to the western bank of Dnipro (?)
  12. A string, sofa spring and piece of metal gas pipe. Reminds me of Sten gun.
  13. This is interesting, Dugin made a direct connection to an alleged ancient practice of sacrificing a ruler when gods are angry and punish folk with famine, drought etc. Putin as a Prince of Pentos
  14. YES! I've watched recent episode of Soloviov's channel, translated to Polish. It's pure pleasure to see him explode with anger and despair. To sum it up: he called for attack on NATO bases in Poland, Germany and Romania and urged to catch and shoot cowards, traitors, deserters and those who troll on his blog
  15. Call me paranoid but I'll believe when I see blue-yellow flag in Kherson city.
  16. Russians are pushing in the East again, it's said they have retaken some villages in Donetsk Oblast yesterday. Ukrainians attempted to drive Russians out their positions in the hills West of Svatove, but were pushed back. If they had succeeded the whole front could have collapsed. As for Kherson - some anticipate Russians will evacuate troops from the territory West of Dnipro except for the Kherson city and Nova Kahovka and turn the two places into fortresses. I am afraid this makes sense, more than leaving the Western side completely, blowing up dams and dropping dirty bombs.
  17. I've watched an interview with Polish volunteer, a sergeant in rapid response squad, figthing in the South. He said that for last three weeks he had fed only on Russian rations and had nothing to complain about. Very tasty, especially apple jam from stock of special forces. So far, so good.
  18. Yeah, as long as you are not passive side everything is ok. This is part of dyedovshchina, organized system of bullying younger/weaker soldiers in Russian (soviet) army. It existed also in Polish army up to the 90's, was called fala (the wave). I guess at some point it existed in many armies, but in Russia this is still alive and kicking. I wonder if - to some extent - this is a reason why the orks are so orkish. I think it has much to do with criminal subculture and customs. It is striking that jailbirds explain their homosexual activities exactly how the Russian grunt does: "We are not gay, this is how we punish"
  19. That would be quite escalatory move of naughty, imperialistic Poland
  20. Access to sea shore and as many ports as possibile is crucial too, I just have considered cleaning western side of Dnipro absolute minimum to achieve (like more secure position in context of potential UA-RU confrontations in the future), even if all the rest would fail. Now it seems much more is possibile, but I was looking forward to this especially.
  21. I think the occupied area West of Dnipro (Kherson etc) is absolutely strategic and most important for Ukraine to regain. Screw the Donbas with its coal and Homo sovieticus population. Russian forces West of the river are like rapist's foot in the door, must be chopped off. Not that it is original thought at all, but I just feel great relief seeing it happens now, before the winter.
  22. I got impression Musk wrote that somewhere between 4th and 5th glass of whiskey. Like Radek Sikorski and his "thank you USA", tweeted after the NS explosion.
  23. Yeah, I've heard somewhere that probably about 40 satelites are at Ukraine's service, while Russia has probably only about 5 which may support their army in the conflict. They scan surface in visual light spectrum and/or in radio spectrum (radar). If I got it right - It is important how often scanning satelites reappear above the same places. The more "visits", the more current is the picture. So, in comparison to Ukrainians, Russians cannot see too much and/or have out of date information.
  24. I've just read that on a section of 15km Ukrainians attacked with 2 brigades (10 batalions). The section was defended by only one Russian regiment, like 2 or 3 batalions. Ukrainians got already 25km deep, this looks really good
