perun? Posted on May 7, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Ukraine's Planned Counteroffensive - force readiness, leaks, politics & expectations
Wishing you comfy Sunday PrepHole. Gotta grab my coffee and watch.
Same, thus will be comfy.
It's about ukraine of course it will instantly generate seething.
Same, comfy. My gf tolerates his videos because we're trying to perfect our Aussie accents
>Pure reddit cope.
>Might aswell ask your local mcdonalds wagie >whats happening on the front.
>I bet you also watch davyd davydov
>being this assblasted already
wasn't gonna watch the vid but maybe it's worth it after all if it managed to immediately make the polchuds seethe
Stop calling a mildly entertaining infotainment series PrepHoleino, you fucking gay!
Predator and his squire was PrepHoleino, the Da Vinci Wolves trench defence was PrepHoleino.
fuck ya mudda
But it makes 4chan go funny.
I just can't help myself.
The rats are fleeing already
The Russians stealing shit always reminds me of jobs I’ve had at work. Customer(s) ordered bunches of shit. They forgot to budget for install and all the equipment was left to rust in a field, customs opened the sealed crates and left them next to ocean spray to rust for a year, and when they got the machine they didn’t read the manual and ran it wrong destroying it in an hour by melting the bearings.
Had a field guy who went all over the world tell me—before 2022–that the second dumbest customers he’s ever worked with were Ukrainians. The Russians who were even dumber and would lie to each other and hide the operating manuals so that only they knew how to run the machines—if they read the manuals. Russian customs would always disassemble our machines and inspect them for “bomb components”. They never put the machines back together and left it to the end customer.
>Russian customs would always disassemble our machines and inspect them for “bomb components”.
This happens in the US too. I once transported a PC by plane, in a container that was marked "FRAGILE, COMPUTER PARTS" etc. Fuckers ripped through the whole computer, and I do mean ripped. Tore shit off that wasn't even removable.
Customs agents are gays no matter where you go.
Protecting the border != being an asshole.
Now you say that but empirical evidence doesn't bear that out except during defensive wars.
Reminds me how TSA Agents have destroyed a 17th century violin.
TSA is where highschool dropouts go to inflate their self worth.
musical instruments should never be fucked with. even the bargain bin shit takes tons of love and manual work to build.
1. That's a cello, just look at it you fucking retard
2. It wasn't TSA agents, it was baggage handlers
3. Most celloists buy an extra seat to prevent that happen, what kind of fucking bonehead put's a 17th century cello into the hold?
4. It wasn't 17th century, it was from 1940.
Why did you lie? Just some kind of turdie vatnik attempt to make America look bad? I mean, the genuine story already looks bad so why tell an outlandish story like that?
No fucker with a fucking 17th century musical instrument of any kind is going to risk it in the hold of an airplane.
From what reverse image search gives me that is a ca. 1660 viol, or voila da gamba, which is played upright between the legs.
This one belongs to Myrna Herzog and was damaged in 2018 in an Alitalia flight from Rio de Janero to Tel Aviv.
According to Herzog airline personal wouldn't allow her to take the instrument with her into the cabin because the plane was full and she wasn't allowed too book an extra seat for the instrument.
Alitalia claimed that personal advised her to buy an extra seat to ensure safe carriage which she declined.
By 2019 Alitalia reimbursed her for all the expenses that resulted from that damage with the instrument having been repaired.
Of course it is both possible that she told the truth and the airline tried to deflect blame or she lied and the airline caved due to PR, who knows.
Average Perun enjoyer
Vatnik shitpost fan
sometimes i wonder what exactly causes airline luggage to be damaged in the first place. that shit's strapped down in flight so it's not like it moves around or anything.
I have no experience with iy but my guess would be improper, or at least subpar, stacking.
Depending on aircraft size they apparently stack luggage either in the cargo hold itself or in separate unit load devices which fit into the cargo hold.
Pic related is such a ULD filled by a robot, if something fragile ends up anywhere but on top it would be at risk of damages.
The only other option I could imagine is rough handling when transporting it from check in to loading maybe by throwing it around.
Have you never seen how they take said luggage off a plane? You've never looked out the window at all when you're waiting for half the plane to get off before you start moving? Because I had to go for years on planes and every single one, to every single state I was at, would have guys who would do that thing like they're cradling a baby or football and swing that thing as hard as possible onto the conveyor belt. Even the guys within the airplane itself would be throwing the things as you'd see arms from the plane side doing it.
Objects that valuable should rate a proper Hardigg case with ample internal foam. Road cases are a solved problem and the rich should have chartered their own flight in the first place.
I think they use those lightweight hard cases because they nominally fit carry on luggage restrictions so the instrument doesn't have to go into the hold.
>Hardigg case with ample internal foam.
Doubt the average Joe musician even knows about those tbh. Although road cases are a reasonable storage option which they should be aware of, especially considering some are even marketed as flight cases.
My sources say Abrams will make an appearance far sooner than expected
>My sources say Abrams will make an appearance far sooner than expected
did you get this from one particular minecraft discord server?
Well no shit. I mean, come on now.
Yea, I don't get that either.
Wait, Russia is losing to this?
I’m pretty sure Russia is “losing” against all of NATO, and more countries even.
>against *some of *NATO's old shit
Fixed that for you.
carrier task force engaged in combat with nukes where?
The same hypersonic wunderwaffe that got swatted by Patriots?
The one that would have to fly past multiple air defence systems on the way to a carrier, losing energy maneuvering even if it doesn't get hit.
DF-21Ds are going to be coming in a bit hotter than a Khinzal anon. But at the same time there's going to be SM-3s attempting intercepts, so it's not a 1 to 1 comparison to what we're seeing in Ukraine. I give it a 80% chance that a CSG could escape an opening salvo with no more than one ship hit, and probably not the carrier.
DF-21Ds don’t exist
Actually how many patriot systems there are in Ukraine?
Don't tell there is just a single one, and it's all it took to make Puccia seethe.
Is a Patriot battery just one launcher?
No. It’s 8 launchers, a ground radar, and a control station.
Why do you vatniks lie so easily? You think people here haven't seen the video and wouldn't call your stupid ass out ? Lol what an absolute fucking loser
You'll have to learn English before consuming English media, ESL
You are correct indeed. By type. By numbers? You looking at less than 1% of Nato stocks. Overall, pretty pathetic of a Russia to lose the war to that alone lel
Woah i didn't know they deployed f22s to ukraine!
He’s an aussie, cunt
Yes sir do not redeem the vomits sir
This is cultural, not ethnic. Romania, Bulgaria, and Poland never give us these problems. It’s vranyo.
>Noam “Russia is fighting a more moral war in Ukraine than the U.S. was in Iraq” Cucksky
>>not an FSB asset
Actually Perun is reasonable, he says a bunch of things that cause the PrepHoleopers to lose their shit and get you banned here such as the Russian army is still dangerous, the Kharkiv counter offensive happened because of man shortages and that's not going to be the case now etc.
You can tell the redditors don't watch the videos and only worship the guy because they think he's one of them.
>that's not going to be the case now
He actually didn't say that. He said that *might* not be the case now. Perun doesn't have a window into Russian troop levels across their entire line and admits he has no idea where Ukraine plans to attack.
He says in the video a Kharkiv like breakthrough is still a possibility. It's just less likely. Which is true (although pushing the line back enough to envelope key logistics hubs in the north might be possible even without a breakthrough and that would risk a Kharkiv style regional collapse and a yolo through Russia would almost definitely result in a breakthrough cause Russia isn't setting up defensive lines in country).
Anyway, to be frank I don't think Russian troop levels or quality are enough to reliably stop a concentrated push ANYWHERE along their line right now. It's just a matter of not ending up overextended. Kherson was also heavily defended and mined to shit with shittons of backlines and we still saw a collapse there when Ukraine finally got around the backside of the defenders at the river and could start moving up the coast toward Mylove. The question's just going to be where does Ukraine want the new lines to be drawn such that it's advantageous for them to continue the war.
Thunder Running 60k men down to the ruins of Mariupol wouldn't be fucking smart even if they could do it if they don't have the manpower to plug the gap behind them and set up new supply, defense, and artillery lines literally immediately. That's why most people are expecting them to go after northern Zaporizhzhia.
>Anyway, to be frank I don't think Russian troop levels or quality are enough to reliably stop a concentrated push ANYWHERE along their line right now. I
Thank you for the daily "Russian soldier bad/Ukranian soldier good" post with no supporting arguments just because.
You've really added to the conversation by giving your opinion and nothing else of value
He's right, and you and your stupid comparison between heavily upgraded T-55s with western systems and rusted soviet T-55 used as ghetto mobile artillery is wrong.
>Upgraded T55 with a 105mm just placed in storage
>T55s maybe upgraded in the 70s pulled straight from the bone yard
Theyre literally the same anon. I can't even tell the difference!
>Upgraded T55 with a 105mm just placed in storage
>>T55s maybe upgraded in the 70s pulled straight from the bone yard
And you personally inspect every tank or did you just read a few lines of a heavily biased article.
>Implying I read news articles
Dunno anon, what makes you confident Russia is fielding T55s modernized past the 70s in any appreciable number? The large number of T80BV and T72B, both 1985 upgrades, makes me think otherwise
The Slovenian M55S have an L7 gun (same as the Leo 1A5s), gun stabilization and a digital ballistic computer, a Fotona SGS-55 sight with a laser rangefinde, a Fotona COMTOS-55 commander’s sight with hunter killer capability (both with night vision), an improved engine, new rubber-metal tracks, and even a LIRD-1A laser radiation detector linked to the smoke grenade launcher IS-6. Meanwhile the Russians are fielding literal vanilla T55 models you dumb snow moron.
>Meanwhile the Russians are fielding literal vanilla T55 models you dumb snow moron.
>Putting a bunch of expensive shit on a half a century old piece of junk, ready to send it to it's death against modern tanks and anti-tank measures russia's wielding
>Using some old tanks as artillery from safe distance
Yeah, I'm thinking whatever amount of cope you have is irrelevant. It's still a ww2 tier deathtrap
>Yeah, I'm thinking
Well, that's one thing you're not doing.
>Can't tell the difference between a modernised T-55 with an actual fire control system, 105 mm gun, good ammunition and ERA, and some rust heap pulled out of storage and last serviced in 1979.
Can't tell if genuine Vatnik or retarded.
>with no supporting arguments
Because they're undertrained and underequipped mobiks who don't want to be there vs modestly-trained and well-equipped hohols who are thirsting for vengeance.
There's a damn good reason they've been finding Russian uniforms in dumpsters.
Addendum: The reason Russia gets made fun of for rolling out T-55s is because they shouldn't be having to fight fucking peer warfare against UKRAINE.
The reason the vatniks hate him so much is because he simply lays things out in a straightforward, no nonsense kind of way. It isn't attempting to be a single source of God type channel that claims to know the truth. He regularly says we don't know certain things, we might be wrong about what we think we know, etc. He posts over a dozen sources each video. He often regularly uses Russia's own sources or government documents to demonstrate his points.
They hate him exactly because he is so difficult to attack.
Yeah but the point I was making is that redditors lash out when someone argues the same points despite fawning over the guy
Do you even know who Chomsky is?
Also all those leftie streamers who outed themselves as pro imperialism (as long as it’s Russian) was hilarious. Hasan saying that he doesn’t give a shit about Ukrainian sovereignty, Chomsky’s usual shenanigans, ect. I was shocked that Vaush of all people was with Ukraine from the start and is also saying China is terrible.
This war has become the perfect detector of sell out shills vs. people that really believe what they say, in all sides of the political spectrum.
Seriously, I don’t agree with vaush on much, but he at the very least believes in what he says and isn’t afraid to call out others that are on his side of the political spectrum if they’re being retarded and or hypocritical. And I can respect a man who has standards and beliefs that he actually adheres to. Then you have a lot of rightoids who preach about personal liberty and freedoms, but shill for Russia of all places and support them invading a sovereign nation. With some right wing personalities calling out the bullshit and hypocrisy.
On that note, Hasan fans are the most cult like motherfuckers out there. These people willingly donate money to a “socialist” and “down with capitalism” type of person who lives in an LA mansion. They justify it with “the system made him do it!” capitalism doesn’t force people to buy multi million dollar LA mansions you mong. I also posted a clip of his raging about how Ukraine should be invaded and got dozens of actual death threats from Hasantards. “It makes you look retarded when you post that” it makes me look retarded when I say someone said something and post a video of them saying that thing?
I see a lot more of "it's none of our business" than "Ukraine Russian clay" but point taken.
> These people willingly donate money to a “socialist” and “down with capitalism” type of person who lives in an LA mansion.
Thats literally the objective and end goal of all communists and communists.
>They justify it with “the system made him do it!” capitalism doesn’t force people to buy multi million dollar LA mansions you mong
Communists fundamentally disagree. You have to remember communists don't believe in free-will or individuals or individuality.
You can also go back to 4chan oh never mind we run that place too lmao
Chompsky is American equivalent of self hating garden gnome. In his eyes America can do no right. He even denies genocide, ie Serbs did nothing wrong.
But this is America and he has the right to hate it all he wants.
He's just a communist. Serbs were trying to mantain communist Yugoslavia from breaking apart in the 1990s, hence they could do nothing wrong, plus the ones who have actual power are the capitalist neo-liberal west, hence the Serbs were harmless and had no capacity for anything.
[THIS IS WHAT COMMUNISTS ACTUALLY BELIEVE]
>CIA assets like Chomsky
The man has spent his whole career criticizing US foreign policy. He even carried water for Khmer Rouge. If he's a CIA asset, he has a funny way of helping them.
Russians are still less humans than slavs, only Indians are less human than Russians tbqh
And i was right as you can see

Civ player vs HOI player mentality in a nutshell
funny how zigbots claim perun is wrong because he plays video games, then says strategy from video games is more correct...
the irony is that ziggers would have had better luck if they got an easy difficulty RTS AI to run their whole shitpile of a war.
Russia wasting much of its armed forces in a poorly planned invasion just years before AI start replacing officers will be an especially hilarious kind of tragic irony in hindsight
Perun also got credited by the Australian Institute of International Affairs
>most well researched, thoughtful, and well presented analysis on the war that can be found anywhere on the web
Wow no kidding that’s actual high praise from a legitimate national think tank. Doesn’t seem like a small thing to me
Well the President of its Victorian Branch, but yes.
I would say though, it's not so much moving up in the world as the other Anon put it, more moving "along".
My fucking boy moving up in the world, good on him
> Fewer than 20 employees
> $4 million budget
So, that's impressive in West New Zealand, is it?
Anon that's somewhere between 100k to 200k per employee a year depending on how much overhead the institute has. Moreover, those folks may not even work full time there (this is how most think tanks work).
why would russia spend the time, money, and effort to evacuate non-russians in the suspected path of the ukie offensive?
They've been forcibly deporting Ukies into Russia since the war began, probably just harvesting everyone they can before they lose control of the territory
They see these people as a resource, is why.
Because they would talk about what they've seen and what the Russians have done.
kremlin degenerates are abnormally hell bent on kidnapping people, especially children, it isn't really noticeable behind all the bloodshed, but we talking about unprecedented for modern age scale of population raiding
I dunno whats the deal here, maybe senile gerantocrats are just severely Epstein-style deranged, or maybe Horde traditions run THAT deep in muscovy bastards.
muscocucks stealing children to bolster their own horrendous demography, children will be given to some vatnik family in buckfuck nowhere and beaten into submission.
they did this shit for decades, if not centuries.
Now why would the russians abduct children I wonder.
I'll give you another option > doing medical experiments
Sometimes I think if they realise how their actions are seen by non-russians
They think they're playing Victoria II and can change "Ukrainian" to "Russian" by doing some assimilation policies for 20 years.
When history has shown it basically never happens and cultures can endure forced assimilation for centuries.
>When history has shown it basically never happens and cultures can endure forced assimilation for centuries.
not if you get sent to siberian labor camp.. or worse
What do you think happened during the soviet period? And it didn't kill Ukrainian nationalism instead Ukrainian nationalism and the referendum (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991_Ukrainian_independence_referendum) was the nail that ended the Soviet Project.
yeah nah we're alive and pissed at russoids forever
Yeah anon, except thats stuff you can't put on a spreadsheet in a computer at the federal ministry's office and show it to Putin, so it doesn't exist and wouldn't happen after all this is all scientific 🙂
>kremlin degenerates are abnormally hell bent on kidnapping people, especially children,
Source: I decided to just think that to myself one day
One of the charges against Putin by the ICC was that he was stealing children.
It's true. I was in Moscow 4 years ago visiting a friend and once saw Putin wearing some kind of disguise sneak into my friends neighbours window and steal their baby straight from the crib. The locals say that is how he replenishes his life force to stay in power
why are you a retarded gay?
>Russia is kidnapping children in Ukraine, says US embassy
>How Moscow grabs Ukrainian kids and makes them Russians
>Russia’s Theft of Children in Ukraine Is Genocide
>‘Stealing a generation’: Ukrainian children deported to Russia face uncertain future

Oh, and the Wikipedia article
>IT-IT'S GLOBOHOMO PROPAGANDA ;~~*~~*~~*((
>WHO CARE THEY DESERVED IT ANYWAY ;*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~)
that's nice, but answer why you're a retarded gay first.
If you respond to this without directly addressing your homosexual nature then you confirmed it, in public, that you are a retarded gay
>do it, give me the (you) gay
Important to note: The whole reason this went to a war-crimes warrent so quickly is because between Russia and the west, there's no dispute over the facts except that Russia claims the children are "orphans" (which does not in any way stop their kidnapping from being a war crime).
So yeah, if you're claiming it just never happened, then you're lying even harder than the kremlin itself.
The tsar wants replacements for the subjects that have been turned into fertilizer.
off the top of my head
>good pr to keep civvies safe and look better
>move troops with civvies to keep from getting shot at

To remove potential spotters of r*ssian army positions
Daily reminder that Perun is a gayyming streamer gay with no military or academic credentials.
No, he did not work in "procurement" whatever that means, it has never been established.
No, I just don't accept opinions from nobodies.
There are subject matter specialists and actual military professionals trained for the role.
argumentum ab auctoritate
He has no academic, military or government credentials.
You can't refute this.
Shoigu at least gets to wear a uniform and pretend he runs the military.
Perun sits in his disgusting underwear all day and plays DOTA like the fucking manchild that he is.
>Shoigu at least gets to wear a uniform and pretend he runs the military.
yeah and thousands of russians are dying because of him and his best bud Putin... who also has NO military background
>yeah and thousands of russians are dying because of him and his best bud Putin
You appear to be 16 and very emotionally vulnerable?
Why else would you assume I give a fuck?
I give a fuck about a poser on Youtube being treated like an expert, despite not having any credibility.
And every time I see that poser gay on PrepHole promoting his own brand of farts, I will call him out on it (yes, that gay does canvass this board).
Neat. Can you name any?
Field Marshall Coach Redpill
He got bested by a fat British pig with questionable knowledge. Pass.
A zero credentials gaymer is dabbing on russian MoD and all other online "analysts"? Seems pretty fucking based
In what way is he dabbing on anyone? His first few vids were educational for people unfamiliar with budgets and numbers of the sides, but after that I couldn't even keep watching on x1,75, so boring it got.
>No, he did not work in "procurement"
you got proof of that ?
You know that's not how it works, right?
You have to first prove that he did work in the field, because that's what his seat sniffers have claimed (without evidence). What are you, fuckin 12?
>appeal to authority
>displacement of the burden of proof
That's two fallacies in a row. I bet you can do a third.
>Burden of proof
Lies on the person making the appeal to authority
>appeal to authority
That's exactly what you perun-gays are doing, without any evidence.
>HURRR DURRR, HE WORKED IN PROCUREMENT
>NOOO, YOU HAVE TO PROVE THAT HE DIDN'T WORK FOR PROCUREMENT FIRST!
Literal, mentally stunted toddlers.
so why don't you show us where's he's wrong?
or do you need to see my math PHD to beleive me when I say 2+2=4?
>so why don't you show us where's he's wrong?
That would require sitting through an hour of intellectually mediocre, un-insightful videos that offer nothing that isn't available on Twitter...
I might as well ask ChatGPT and get a better answer about the Ukraine war in seconds.
>I might as well ask ChatGPT and get a better answer about the Ukraine war in seconds.
then do it.
come on Rajesh do it. you brown people are good with computer right?
this has to be said every fucking thread because you're a bunch of retarded americans who know literally nothing.
he's obviously a government worker. if he's not one, he was one, or is completely autistic and has studied to a serious level how to act like one. you're trying to discredit his completely legitimate sourced videos by doubting his credentials when it's very obvious to anyone who knows how these people talk that he is one.
seriously he went to a nice private school in melbourne or sydney and now works in sydney or canberra. he's been in or around the aps for years. it's so obvious and you're outing yourself by not noticing it.
>he's obviously a government worker.
Yeah, no offense bro, but that's not exactly evidence. The evidence shows he's a loser streamer gay.
Probably unemployed, and just goes through Twitter and milbloggers to recycle their opinions.
don't care about the opinion of a retarded foreigner.
Proofs? Just go look up his videos from before the war.
He's a manchild that streamed DOTA or some shit (don't bother correcting me which game it really was incels, don't give a fuck).
No retard, proofs he's not a defense analyst. Gaming is evidence in favor tbh; those lads love their RTSs.
>No retard, proofs he's not a defense analyst.
Dear dumbfuck, you have to prove he did work in the field first off.
What kind of dumfuck, incel logic is that?
>"procurement" whatever that means
>with no military or academic credentials.
You do realise you are describing Shoigu and most of the MoD right?
>Vatnik doesn't know what procurement is
Here's a pity (you) Ivan, hope it keeps the draft notice away.
You don't need "military or academic credentials" to make a power point presentation listing publically availible information and making comments about it. The very observation that Perun's videos on this subject have become popular and fairly well regarded, and the only detractors of him are appeals to authority about Perun and not the videos themselves are very telling.
His videos are popular and informative and make people like you constantly mad enough to kneejerk react at his background because you can't actually contradict any of the information in his videos.
If that is Bill Duke, that would be kino.
>I give a fuck about a poser on Youtube being treated like an expert, despite not having any credibility.
The credibility is in the content posted though, you stupid chimp.
>leave the masturbation dungeon
It's masturbation day. Also you shouldn't post your image on PrepHole.
>You don't need "military or academic credentials" to make a power point presentation listing publically availible information and making comments about it.
It's a problem when he tried to pass it off as his own (have you ever seen him quote sources?).
His videos need sources as well as disclaimer in bold lettering that he's some nobody aussie cunt that ran DOTA streams before the war.
>The credibility is in the content posted though,
Content about factual matters without any sources, or with the author having no military or academic credentials himself, is dangerous and could very well be a source of misinformation or even disinformation.
If he is a source of misinformation or disinformation, it ought to be pretty easy to prove, right? Lazerpig got called out pretty quickly on his shit, no one's being stopped from doing the same to Perun. So let's have it.
>Lazerpig got called out pretty quickly on his shit
He made a video on the T14 that was riddled with errors.
said his T-14 video apparently was a shit show with him, among other things, claiming the russians abandoned ERA, they haven't, and that the engine is a derivative of the Porsche Tiger.
It's not a derivative of the SLA16, which was never in the Porsche Tiger and never mentioned to be.
>have you ever seen him quote sources?
Uh, yes? Source links in the text block below each video right on the YouTube page? He frequently has deets in the screenshots on individual slides as well.
Can you show some examples of wild claims he's made that definitely can't be sourced?
>His videos need sources
god, ziggers really can't stop humiliating themselves can they?
None of their propaganda is intended to hold up to any level of scrutiny. They just try to shit out so much of it that it filibusters the internet.
Ironically, the only solution is extreme "Russophobia". Because since you usually can't identify a speaker on the internet, you eventually build up so many examples of their shitty, insidious lies that you assume that ALL pro-russian information is false unless rigorously proven.
Its just like how they try to "keep countries out of NATO". Its totally self-defeating.
If there's a danger, it's in Russia rolling out the tactical nukes in volume just before the culmination point of the offensive. They'd have to decide that they like their chances better with throwing in on Manchurian Joe re-election fortification (incumbent favor + war time president), and that whatever the conventional 'catastrophic consequences' they'll be deterred by going full retard on civilians in response if Kiev doesn't sue for peace.
>kick the dog until it bites then you nuke it
As any number of Soviet defectors and former military say, "these are not normal people [in the Kremlin]" and the strategic aims and desires have not changed one bit. Their conventional forces are shit by design because all their eggs are in the strategic weapons basket (thanks to their basket case political-economy ideology). If they fail, they'll turtle up and bide their time like Lenin did with the New Economic Policy period of 'state capitalism'.
Any other oldfags had an experience like mine?
I'm still amazed that the change of discourse around the internet that I thought was a natural effect of more and more people being accustomed to going online, more and more people becoming forum literate, more and more people learning how to make content and create discussion hubs and communities growing based around that, more and more stratification of websites welcoming likeminded people with comparable time spent online... a lot of that shit was manipulated throughout by thirdie trollfarms contracted by autocratic fuckholes.
For a long time I was really naive about how resistant large groups of people with freedom of information would filter out manipulation, but now I recognize what a fucking idiot I was. Nobody's immune to propaganda.
I had a not-crazy moment a while back when that train crash in Ohio or whatever happened, when all I saw was news stories about how this was America's Chernobyl and that the government was doing a global cover up. I thought, "Fuck, this sounds so fucking artificial and weird, is this some sort of push by angry russianigs or something?" Lo and behold, it was found out that the chinks had been pushing it hard, so I was wrong on who it was but the method was right.
Wish I could read more about this, I wonder if there's anyone looking into how much the evolution of the surface level of the internet has been fucked with by Wagner farms or PRC spotlighters.
It's good when the epiphany happens. The schizo hiveminds various different countries or organizations try to create online really get exposed when they attempt to spread disinfo about too large a variety of topics. It just takes them to try it on something you actually know about to realize that if "they are lying about this then all the other stuff they said over the years is garbage know I think about it". The difference in 4chan vs PrepHole on Ukraine is a good example of this. 4chan gets fed shitloads of disinfo because its population is susceptible and gullible enough as they just jump from one CURRENT THING to the next becoming overnight experts on something they hadn't heard of before because they read a couple of infographics.
>Ironically, the only solution is extreme "Russophobia".
they deserve it at this point.
There are, indeed, very good, practical reasons why one *shouldn't* choose to lie at every conceivable opportunity.
Here's the thing, though: Russians don't choose to lie, they simply can't help themselves. Lying comes as naturally to them as breathing.
>His videos are popular!!!
Yes, yes. But what does RLM have to say about the dreaded Ukrainian Spring Offensive?
At this point you're just pasting this retarded post for (you)s
Hey gay, why don't you wash your penis, make your bed, leave the masturbation dungeon and actually get some training or academic credentials if you want to pretend to be a military expert.
because there's a chance he's russian and I want him to survive long enough to be drafted and killed.
if we don't reply he won't get his 8 roubles per post and then die of hunger or something.
>I give a fuck about a poser on Youtube being treated like an expert, despite not having any credibility.

You appear to be 16 and very emotionally vulnerable. maybe going to the battle field would do you some good.
come on Ivan, stop your shilling job and go fight for russia
>because there's a chance he's russian and I want him to survive long enough to be drafted and killed.
Imagine unironically wishing death on other people.
You are an abomination of the human race

A presentation, by definition, cannot be kino.
No matter how well-made and well-presented.
Yeah, it's disregarded.
Lol your Slavic god will be fucked by God himself soon.
I need that mask for winter what is it called
>"May the soldiers in the trenches forgive me"
these guys are going to fight like devils. no mercy, tears in their eyes, thinking of their comrades who got shredded by vatfricans so that they could train another day in Bradleys.
tactical advantage of vengeance-fueled morale?
I recall seeing an interview with a Bakhmut defender who specifically said he knew they weren't going to get much support specifically because they were trying to free up forces for training and movements elsewhere, and that he was okay with that because it was part of the mission. That definitely tracks with your highlighted statement.
Even Pigozhin mentioned many, many times that Ukies have a massive reserve of men and thousands of pieces of equipment they didn't commit to Bakhmut quietly parked away in the east of the country. Strelkov complained about this same grouping and whined why Puccia couldn't just air strike them.
Statements from any official military source, but ESPECIALLY Russian military officials should be taken with such a large grain of salt that you'd be honestly better off working it out for yourself. Priggy seems to be engaged in some sort of power struggle, definitely between himself and Russian high command, maybe with Putin himself too, so anything he says is compromised imo
>Priggy seems to be engaged in some sort of power struggle, definitely between himself and Russian high command
You have to understand, Russia is a giant mafia and we just dont know what their roles are in that mafia. Prigozhin is likely backed by some oligarch, and Shoigu is backed but some other oligarch and those two oligarchs are feuding somehow.
What they say or dont say in the context of that feud doesn't matter at all with respect to the war. Long story short ... you're right, dont listen to a word Russians say
I think you're largely right except that guys like Prigozhin and Shoigu aren't puppets of some rich person, they're the rich people.
Priggy may have started like that, but he's the oligarch now
