Literally what the fuck even is this?
How would this amount of men and materiel struggle to capture this town in few weeks, much less like 11 months?
How do you even do that? Why wouldn’t you like shift focus after a certain point?
Like unironically wtf is wrong with these bozos?
How much do I need to lift and what guns do I need to own to get a cute Ukrainian veteran GF?
They all have PTSD
Better get some usual girl
>Ukrainian mommy veteran GF
You need at least some sort of MANPADS or ATGM.
I dont know about a veteran but you can get laid with a hot one with about 200€ where i live.
>How much do I need to lift and what guns do I need to own to get a cute Ukrainian veteran GF?
Become the Tinder swindler. That is all.
You don’t need any of that, just be a US citizen and willing to give her a green card.
Here in AZ and NV there are a ton of ukie girls who crossed over from mexico when the war kicked off.
Apparently a lot of them are working as sex workers (a slavs natural condition) and got fired from strip clubs and brothels because they refuse to touch blacks lol.
I didnt have many blacks where I grew up, but we got alot of Russians following the Soviet collapse and the girls and guys all got swooped up by Mexicans, it became really common to see mixed kids all about, hell a few of my friends were half Russian and Mex mutts. Wonder why they mixed soo fast, maybe because they are both poor groups and Russians have low standards. That said, weird that they wouldnt want blacks since I grew up seeing alot of cute Russian girls with 5’1 Mexican manlets who looked like the steriotypical bean picker.
Interdasting take Anon.
I’ve lived in Chicago and here in AZ where we have a lot of russian/slav truckers.
They tend to keep to themselves and their communities but generally act kind of like rednecks/wiggers in their own way or horde tacky expensive shit like louis vuiton and gucci.
They always seem to act like they’re above brown people though, which is ironic considering their behavior.
Yes, is true, I Johnny Hautedog from Kentucky Oblast has also much witnessed this
Just be like Sheva
I suggest you check again in 2 more weeks
With incompetence and corruption nothing is beyond possibility in war
Quick Wagner troops are trying to capture crazy noisy bizarre town! How would they go about it PrepHole?
>Russia is still trying to capture some literally who town in Ukraine
Imagine parallel reality.
Kharkiv and Mykolaiv taken by russia.
Odessa and Poltava besieged by russian troops.
And Ukraine taken half of Irpin' and pays internet trolls to spam about that 24/7.

>Literally what the fuck even is this?
A sisyphean nightmare the horror of which is beyond comprehension. When Nikola Tesla first spoke those words in 1898 while showcasing a little remote-controlled boat, even he wouldn't even have been able to begin to grasp just how terrible and true that statement was. How that little toy he was showcasing would ultimately pave the way for the ultimate instrument of impersonal industrial killing.
>Literally what the fuck even is this?
It's how Russia's waged war for the last 3 decades.
The only thing that's changed since Grozny is the camo and plates, I shit you not.
>It's how Russia's waged war for the last century.
The funniest thing is all the shills here pretending it’s anything but fucking embarrassing
>wagner group using prisoners
>prisoners are expensive
What if the state is just purging the financial responsibility of their prison industrial system via ukraine?
>They're actually being retarded on purpose! It's 8d chess!
That would make sense...if Russia still had high quality maneuver elements left over, and hadn't resorted to sticking old ERA and early-generation thermals on T-62s. It seems more like they've resorted to infantry infiltration tactics and targeted artillery barrages in an urban meatgrinder because they no longer have the capacity to advance in open terrain outside the city. They've been using prisoners and mobiks because infantry assaults are the only means they have left to advance, albeit by mere yards per day.
The only question now is whether the Ukes have the capacity (or can *build* the capacity within a reasonable period) to engage in maneuver warfare, and if so, when they'll launch an offensive. Otherwise it'll be an indefinite stalemate.
It’s not a stalemate, Russia is advancing and Ukraine is falling back. Launching a counter-offensive once a year consisting of troops walking forward only works if the Russians refuse to fight but that is not gaurenteed to be the outcome. Even when that happens, as in last year’s offensive, it fails to reverse 100% of Russia’s gains. If that is the cycle Ukraine finds itself in then they’re going to lose.
They need a real maneuver warfare capability ASAP.
They have a maneuver war capability. It is being held back. It will continue to be held back until you know all about it.
>It's not a stalemate, Russia is advancing and Ukraine is falling back.
Are you retarded, or paid to shill? Russia is not advancing, it is stuck in a meat grinder. Russia entered tube artillery range of Bakhmut in May 2022, 10 months ago. The current phase of Russian offensive operations against Bakhmut started in August 2022, 7 months ago. The daily "rate of advance" has been less 50m per day. By contrast the Ukrainian counteroffensive retook 180km of depth in 3 weeks.
If Russia maintains this blistering advance that you're claiming ahows they're winning, they will reach Kiev in a casual 11,540 years. If the cycle continues they will be expelled by Ukrainian counterattacks.
Here are the real historical rates of advance against peer forces by the way. https://apps.dtic.mil/sti/citations/ADA220426
> It’s not a stalemate, Russia is advancing and Ukraine is falling back.
“advancing” endlessly without any meaningful territorial gains for months is pretty much a stalemate m8
>It’s not a stalemate, Russia is advancing and Ukraine is falling back
when the advance is measured in meters per week, it's a stalemate
You know that joke about the drunk who lost his keys in the parking lot but keeps looking under the streetlamp because it's better lit?
It's something like that, only with logistics.
Attacking Bakhmut is easy from a logistical point of view because it is next to communication and logistics lines. Just that. It brings no value from a strategic point of view, but it is tactically easy to carry out.
Part of the Ukrainians' goals is to protect their cities from the Russian artillery. So, while the numbers are in favor of the defenders, they are more than happy to see Russians expend all their war resources on an innocuous city.
In recent days, Bakhmut has also gained propaganda value. The failure of the Russians to capture a city that at this point is just a pile of dirt is extremely disgraceful. If the Ukrainian spring counterattack succeeds and pushes the line of attrition further back, pufff, all that's left is seppuku for the Russians.
> Attacking Bakhmut is easy from a logistical point of view because it is next to communication and logistics lines. Just that. It brings no value from a strategic point of view, but it is tactically easy to carry out.
Wonder if anyone in Russian command has been concerned with anything other than looking busy. Like do any of them plan on victory at this point or is just about not failing to follow orders
Russia is losing to this? ZAMN
>but it's at least outpaced battles in the 1940s that were primarily driven by horseback and railroad, and had no shit like UAVs/drones, right?
OHHHHHHHH NO NO NO NO NO
Jesus fucking Christ what a shitshow.
and that was almost 2 months ago now
pic sorta related, a cope map of vulhedar before it was public knowledge that the offensive there was a disaster and more than 100 vehicles were destroyed. The russians and their idiot sympathizers will draw up cope maps at the announcement of offensives, even after all the lessons of the previous year. absolutely embarrassing
I remember that. The joy of being really judicious in where you get your intel from is seeing posts like that, turning to your Uke sources and them responding with "Oh you think we....ahha ha ha... you think we're doing badly.... pffftttahaha... you think we're doing badly at Vuhledaaahahahahahaha". Then with time example of reality are broadcast.
Can't wait until the battle is longer than Verdun.
Here's one thing that changed OP:
The ven diagram between RF military bloggers and commentators perspectives on RF prospects, and the perspective of the ISW has gone from two circles to nearly one circle.
Have a look at what Girkin says now. We say he was always doomposting, but these days he has actually gone beyond angst, and the content of his posts might as well be what ISW reports.
For the country that came up with the nonsense of "hybrid warfare", the fact that a bunch of nerds grinding on osint as platonically as possible have a dominant position to ultra-nat RF milbloggers is worth remembering.
Russia is attacking there because that’s where Ukrainians set up. Russia doesn’t have the capability to maneuver around them while securing their rear so they do their arty march. The poor capabilities of both sides has defined this positional warfare.
>The poor capabilities of both sides has defined this positional warfare.
This would be why the Ukes used arty, air and tanks against Wagnerian flanks, and why snipers were able to easily destroy a bridgehead.
Such a strange statement to make.
Are you well? Have the flanks been pushed back? Why are the Russians moving forward and the Ukrainians moving back every day? Each time you consume your favorite propaganda do you feel even the slightest desire to verify it?
The longer it takes Russia to achieve its small goals, the more prestige and face it loses to the world. Russia could win tomorrow but it’d be a laughing stock regardless for being held back by off brand vatnigs for soo long. Either way, both Russia and Ukraine are demographically dead after this war
>Have the flanks been pushed back?
Several times now, which is why for days there was "no movement".
Ukraine is sending everybody to get shelled to death by the Russians there.
>Ukrainian female surplus starts at the age of 50
That's not war related
Russia is sending everybody to get shelled to death by the Ukrainians there.
I believe both countries have been falsifying their demographic data for decades, Russia has 100m people at most.
>have hot women (ukrain & rusha considered one of the hottest woman places)
>still fail the basic function of reproduction that even some piece of brainless sea cucumber can do
what's their problem? or i suppose the problem is with women since they're the ones choosing to go extinct. it can't be a lack resources or lack of infrastructure men didn't build. people used to reproduce fine in 1000x worse situations. white women were a mistake? birth control? women rights?
>what's their problem?
once you reach certain industrialization and have prosperty births drop, look at quatar, UAE, all industrialized nations have low brithrates because of it, just dont bring in thirdies to work redefine work and labour to fit the nation, look at japan too
The only reason their women are hot is because they keep having dumb wars which kills off a huge chunk of their males. The Hottest women still get husband's but the uggos can't compete.
interesting theory. in this day and age, i feel like all hot women still don't make more than 2 babbys so it's unsustainable. also they go to the west, dubai etc so they don't even stay in their country. what a waste.
tens of millions missing? wouldn't that be insane even for russia?
>what's their problem?
Never recovered after the 80s.
Putin actually had a chance to transform the country and drag it kicking and screaming into the 21st century in the 00s, people saw him as a messiah after the absolute fucking disaster of the 90s (they still do, it's the reason he's still in power, there is a lot of inertia to people's thinking.)
What he did instead was start plotting a reconquista of "rightful Russian clay" and revenge on the West.
>people saw him as a messiah after the absolute fucking disaster of the 90s
To add to this, as much as I dislike people drawing parallels between Putin and Hitler, their positions are alike in a way.
Putin was seen as a miracle worker who
>ended the era of the Wild East where the country was mostly ran by gangs centered around people who got obscenely rich during the privatization (trouble is, he did this by institutionalizing the corruption and making all of these people either loyal to him or dead/gone)
>ended the streak of military humiliations of Russia (Afghanistan, first Chechnya - these were insanely demoralizing to Russians whose national identity was largely centered around military might and triumph in WWII)
>ended and reversed the downwards trend of living standards (he actually had nothing to do with this but that didn't stop him from getting the credit)
People used to worship the ground he was walking on, and to this day, you'll see a lot of Russians coping with shit like "he's getting bad advice", "the people around him are lying to him about what's going on", "the west provoked him into doing this" etc. just because they can't possibly reconcile their image of Putin as a strategic and political genius with the fucking disaster they are in the middle of.
Putin had no chance of saving Russia even if he was Jesus Christ himself.
Yeltsin sold the country off to whatever crooks had already scammed enough money together to afford it. It was fucked from the get-go.
dude. thats a dude.
Almost all peoples are stubborn as its basic human nature. However, Russia takes it to comical levels. They are using outdated doctrines from the early 20th century with a 19th century mindset.
The Ukrainians have dumped shitloads of men and material into the town.
The Russians first started attacking back during their skeleton crew phase before their first drafts. Back then they could only menace the city enough for the Ukrainians to dedicate more men to defending it, but not enough to make them start pushing back.
Bakhmut has relative value as a transport hub, and moderate size city, but substantially matters because both sides keep dumping men into it over and over. At this point neither side can safely retreat.
Its like Verdun in WW1. Situationally the city of Verdun was useful as a fortress and material hub, but eventually it was important because it was important and there were a lot of men there.
Russia can't aim elsewhere because they have too many men committed. Same with the Ukrainians.
>Can't aim elsewhere
They are currently pushing on two other axii, Vuhledar and Kremina/Svatove. Problem is that neither of these pushes have any sort of operational harmony, allowing Ukraine to quite easily absorb attacks. The Ruskies can most certainly redeploy to other sectors, but they are so buckbrokenly fixated on Bakhmut. Once UKR force generates the latest brigades training on NATO gear, they can open up a new line of effort and get the war moving again.
I rot for Ukies but I cannot stand this bitch "the witch" fuck this attention whore.
