      The "victory" will be beyond pyrrhic. The cost fallacy has sunk deeper than the Samuel B. Roberts and there's no withdrawing from this without losing more face than Harvey Dent. The only way I can see to withdraw "gracefully" is by staging a fake civil war that requires all Russian troops to quell. Their situation is honestly far worse than Japan going full moron in China.

      While I’m still pessimistic for the overall prospects of the war for the reasons [...] outlined, my god, how are the Russians going to rebuild their army after this? With Ukraine they can sustain the conflict despite that because Ukraine is also struggling with its armored vehicles (own production minimal, assistance has got stingy), but imagine trying to start a new war with bare handful of newly-made tanks and APCs while all older stock is either destroyed or early cold war -tier rusty shitboxes.

      Are you 'pessimistic' there in your fricking oblast? Russia has already lost this war. Their military capacity has been erased and its now down to the dregs, the Russian economy has also been erased something Russian propagandists dread being mentioned. The Russian dictator will be arrested as a war criminal (and deserves to be) if he sets foot in most of the nations on earth. Finland and Sweden are in NATO. Russias entire invasion ground forces army and their equipment has been destoyed, then their entire pre war ground force and equipment, then their entire first line reserves and equipment. Then there are you concerned strangers who think "Russia has/will 'win' ". That's not happening, Russia will not retain any ground gained in 2014 or in this invasion by aggression because it can't be allowed to or other lunatics like Putin will try the same shit over every festering linguistic enclave. Further Russia decded to make itself an existential threat to the EU and interfere in western democracy as a 'strategy'. So it Russia also made itself an existential threat to democracy. Russia does not get to decide who joins the EU or NATO. Until Russia understands this Russians will be killed at the rate of one thousand a day and 100-200 vehicles and artillery pieces. Russia WILL be entirely disarmed of both conventional and nuclear weapons. Ukraine has the backing of the EU and (again and righteously the USA) its piss stained little Peru size economy is a laughable nothing as are the backward brainwashed and worthless Russian public and its dystopian near failed state, Russia win? Are you actually insane or moronic or just pretending you are? There is no question of Russia 'winning' anything. The only situation being observed is how extreme will Russias humiliation and total defeat be.

        They have won, unless America opens up it's stockpiles of mothballed vehicles including artillery. Europe is tapped out and can only provide a trickle of new hardware. America also needs to ramp up production of all kinds of AA missiles and AA gun systems because the constant propeller drone spam (the russians are presently producing about 90 geran-2 per day) has drained the ukies dry.

      Russia lost this war on the very day it began because their goals were based on complete fantasy.

      What's going on now is basically the result of Putin living in complete denial of the situation.

      [...]

      You're assuming that the Russians aren't lying about how big their army is. Considering that virtually every formation in Ukraine larger than the regimental level seems to be operating at half of their normal authorized strength (i.e. rifle companies with ~50 men instead of the 100+ they would normally have), they probably are.

          The ukies have been given a very simple choice by the russians, die fighting or die at the hands of their occupiers.
          If they give up, their language, culture and history will cease to exist. They will be forced out of thier homes and replaced woth settlers from the far east. Thier children will be taken from them and transported deep into the Russian interior, never to be seen again amd they themselves will be beaten, raped and eventually killed by thier self proclaimed masters
          Facing all of that, why wouldn't they fight to the end?

        Ukraine was a territory that could have been rolled up cleverly with soft power retaining the demographics and infra. Instead it’s slowly turning into an empty rectangle in the middle of Europe.

            Don't entirely undersell the economic and strategic value of Ukraine. It produces a lot of food and has increasingly large amounts of oil reserves found within its borders. It's also a vital strategic position for Russia.

                It is probably over half a million, the real problem with teh UKranian numbers is not that they are too high but that they are too low and conservative. Did you know the Russians have had to close a few prisons as the Russian prison population has plummeted due to losses in Ukraine? The Russian medical system is in a state of collapse as well with district hospitals with less than half the doctors they need (they are importing self certifying doctors from Africa). There are deliberate euthanasia policies now in Russia for multiple amputations and severe burns because they lack the plastic surgery and prosthetic expertise and surgeons . Tucker Carson may have been sniffing bread in Moscow but Russia is literally dying before our eyes. They are down to thrash at this point, what's amazing is the apcs are supposed to have reserves like the tanks and artillery did but with them it seems we are skipping ahead to chinese atvs. Stolen, unrepairable,picked over for export who knows. They had the same problem with T72s. Russia is visibly before our eyes running out of weapons it had vast stocks of. If you can make BMP3s and T90s or Su57s at will or even restore BMP2s and T72s then you don't use chinese ATVs and T62s. Russias collapse is far nearer than most posters here seem to realize perhaps deceived by Russian crowing and propaganda. Its a weak nation and had barely recovered from the utter mad max like collapse of the 1990s when their moronic marxist leninism ate itself. Russia is about to not pop or explode but deflate with a farting sound into a sequence of gangster drive by statelets

                Most cities have actually cancelled their celebrations due to drone fears, yes.
                They are a bit moronic though. Ukraine does not actually see a bunch of babushkas attending parades as a desired target. Go figure.

The Russians are 100% hiding actual losses from their own people.

          The small professional spearhead was smeared all over Kiev, kek. If they did limit themselves to that they would have straight out lost the war and not gotten any ground. it's kind of a chicken egg thing because without Soviet nostalgia they wouldn't have a desire for a large army and keep putting money into Soviet stockpiles to equip it or invade their neighbors for dumb reasons.

        It took Russia 70 years to amass the stockpile they have. With their economy and industry being what it is today, it's an impossible task. The Russian army of the future will be smaller and lighter, totally incapable of waging a major war like this ever again.

        Look at tank production. Most of the T-90Ms are just rebuilt T-90As. Hull production is absolute abysmal and as much as they talk about restarting T-80 production lines, there has been 0 movement. It's no better looking at BMP-3 and BMD-4 production.

        It's going to be the best thing that ever happened to them. Forcing them out of their red army coma. They tried back in the late 2000's but stopped because the guy running it fired too many corrupt officers. If they had let him do his thing and turn the Russian army into a small modern and professional force they may have actually pulled off the Ukraine invasion.

        You're very right that Russia should have followed through with the reforms to modernize and scale back the army, but I don't think it would have mattered for the war. Russia was never going to be able to modernize in the way they needed to, their strength has always been in their numbers. But now their numbers are failing, leaving them with nothing.

          I'm waiting for the Ukrainians to begin laying waste to radar and Su-34 production. That's basically the only edge they have left, their ability to keep their airspace relatively locked down to anything larger than a drone. The moment they can't replace fighter losses (I know they can't already, but I'm talking about complete inability) all hell will break loose. They'll have to buy fighters from China.

            Won't happen, production is located in Novosibirsk and is unlikely to be threatened even by long range drones.
            Targeting and dismantling forward the forward Russian AD network will be Ukraine's best chance at allowing their F-16s to better deny and interdict their airspace against tactical aviation.
            As long as Ukrainian fighters are forced to hug the ground and operate conservatively, there will be no chance of stopping the bombing.

            >is just going to be a rolling coffin for its crew.
            Who cares? Russia has a lot of people.

            A lot of people, yes. But less and less skilled operators. And what's the point of an IFV if a single FPV drone disassembles it before it even enters combat, or if a single mine turns it into smithereens. It cannot be stressed enough how many of Russia's problems are due not just because of poor equipment, but because the men fighting are poor soldiers.

            >It's going to be the best thing that ever happened to them. Forcing them out of their red army coma.
            Is it now? Loosing their entire store of conventional weapons, armaments and trained personnel along with their economy, veto aty the UN and nuclear weapons? You'rea a fricking extreme optimist if you think Russia will still exist in a decade at the current rate of erasure.

            Fun fact all media claiming the Russian economy is ok/growing/just fine are basing their numbers on those of the IMF who get their numbers from....the Kremlin. Russia has not changed the laws of economics and is cannibalizing itself financially.

            I would avoid quoting the Ukrainian numbers for equipment losses, they are at best exaggerated, and at worst entirely fabricated. Use Oryx or Warspotting if you want something at least based in reality. However the current situation is dire regardless of what numbers you go by. Storage locations will most likely be depleted in 1-2 years, and then their army becomes a ticking time bomb before it needs to begin merging existing formations to generate quality forces.

                Dude calm down, I'm literally on your side. The Ukrainian numbers are bullshit, that's all it is. But the Russian storage numbers were also bullshit.
                The Covert Cabal audit of Russian storage put tanks at around 7000, with maybe another 2000 in indoor storage. Military Balance 2022 assessed the Russian army as having about 3500 tanks in service. Lets call the Russian army as having 12,500 tanks in total. Oryx puts Russian tank losses at around 3000, but of course that number will be higher, perhaps by as much as 1000. That would leave Russian storage as being down to around 4000 tanks. Funny how that perfectly lines up with a median between the most recent assessment of storage sites.

                Imagaine not even knowing that teh Oryx site itself says its estimates on Russian losses are only a fraction of the actual Russian losses. Imagine being a smell Russian c**t posting shit for Putin for a pittance. Imagine being that worthless waste of fricking oxygen.

                How dare I question the sacred Ukrainian battlefield reports, forgive me.
                How do you explain Russian tank storage decreasing at a number that lines up fairly well with the Oryx numbers being around a 70% estimate? Guess what you can't. Because Ukraine overinflated their numbers just in the same way the Russians do. It's a war, people lie. You assume I'm against Ukraine, why? I have just pointed out that Russia most likely has 2 years left of tanks in storage, where is the pro Russian message there?

                Take this with a grain of salt for a lot of reasons, but this count is also old, I think from October of 2023.
                The numbers are current being recounted as it's believed that a lot of counted T-72s were actually T-62s. Also a large number of T-80s are T-80UDs using the diesel engine which does not have parts, rendering them unusable without engine replacement.

                I'll look to see if any counts have been re done, but I don't think so.

                Is completely true. They have repeatedly acted as great predictors for everything from further ,mobilizations after the initial phase of the war to the arrival of T54s. You are trying to cast doubt on them because that is your role as a Russian propagandist, or at least you are echoing exactly the behavior of one.

                There's also the fact that a vehicle may be dragged back to the mechs and repaired. Several times. Therefore, the same russian vehicle can be counted several times as a "loss" by Ukraine, without them knowing. Or they could be counting a chimera vehicle that was put together from working components of 2 other lost vehicles.
                The "inflated" numbers when comparing reported losses to storage sites isn't just because of intentional propaganda, but is simply inevitable even when attempting honesty

          the USSR, you mean. Russia without Ukraine will never be more than a regional power. This is a big part of Brzezinski's postsoviet doctrine, all you need to do is drive a wedge between Russia and Ukraine and Russia becomes a problem only for the countries which border it. They know it too hence why Putin delivers speech after speech saying Ukraine doesn't real because the existence of the Ukrainian national identity is a gaping wound in Russian imperial ambition. The mixture of natural and human resources that left le Russkiy Mir with Ukraine was devastating for their military and basically every industry aside from mineral extraction. And even that was under threat by 2012 with Ukrainian petrochemical resources being developed in Donbass.

    By Russia's own acknowledgements they've been able to do a base of 20-30k recruited per month plus something like 200k from the each of the spring/fall conscription waves. And i'm not sure those number include prisoners given a choice to lighten their sentence. If the 20-30k is accurate that alone is enough for them to increase their force total (remember the Ukraine daily update number includes critically wounded not just dead, and i'm not sure Russia would actually care enough not to send someone back in if they don't die)

    Unironically, if the Russians lose enough BMP-2s that they are forced to field a plurality of BMP-1s that's gonna be a huge degradation of their assault capabilities. For all we laugh about the 2A42/2A72 guns and their inaccuracy, their rate of fire up close is daunting to go up against and will keep heads down. The 2A28 can't hit the broadside of a barn and lacks the volume of fire to keep heads down. If even competent groupings are forced to be equipped with only BMP-1s, Russian offensive capabilities will suffer and they'll likely sustain more casualties when assaulting.

      Here fren. Demonstration of the gun.
      The ammo expenditure of this wobbly stream seems self-defeating, but it definitely looks like a good psychological weapon. For the 1-2 minutes you have ammo...
      Undoubtedly, the ammo stowage requirement for this moronic gun contributes to BMP-2 going poof easily. A more moderate weapon might allow proper ammo compartmentalization.

      Russia officially includes Crimea/Sevestopol, Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporhzia in their population statistics which would cut north of 10mil off their population once they are lost, then you factor in however many more people die before the war ends..... then you've gotta deal with the population is much older than it should be and far more fricked up from war injuries.

                They are interesting and very beautiful but also very mercenary. You can't ever show weakness to them (being in love is a weakness to them) or they will eat you alive. Try to keep things casual or friendly for as long as possible. Don't buy them a lot of stuff (gifts or expensive meals...weakness, again). Slavic women will eat even the most Chad Westoid for breakfast, so don't think you can beat them at their game.
                Keep your virginity for your future wife. Visit churches and get a religious gf (virgin). That's how it used to be and still should be. They have Catholic, Lutheran, and even Baptist churches in Russia but Russian Orthodox is most common.

                I only went to SPb. Start there because it is the most European of any Russian city and has a lot to offer for tourists. Moscow is more expensive and less traditional in character. Oh, and only go in the warm months. Karelia is outside of SPb and is really nice, from what I've seen pics of and heard, if you like beautiful forests and such.

                Easier is to take a bus/shuttle from Tallinn, which will take you to the border, which you cross by walking, then another bus waiting will pick you up and get you to st peterburg. BalticShuttle and Luxexpress offer this as full service. Compared to turkey flights its dirt cheap.

    Russia collapsing is in fact a propaganda cope. Rather it’s on a timer. The West feared a severe energy supply shock so they let Russia energy exports to continue — and being a petrostate energy is the majority of Russia’s GDP and has been paying for the war. However, the European energy market — what this war is about — has been mostly lost. China and other places simply can’t replace the revenue lost in Russia. The cash built up selling to Europe is now being depleted. Sanctions have furthermore accelerated that wealth depletion by forcing Russia pay premiums to evade them. There will come a point in the not-too-distant future in which Putin will be forced to stop due to financial strain. Putin does seem committed if the 2024 defense budget of $350b is real, but he simply can’t keep spending like that for a long time.

A quick look at Russian depot figures versus loss rates indicates they're capped at among 3 years more best case for them, more likely 2; at which point they drop to factory outputs which are so far also semi-cappable.

    Look, guys, I don't want Russia to win either, and the fact they didn't steamroll Ukraine in the first place has shown they're not the power everyone thought they were, BUT.

    Why do so many people think Russia is going to completely collapse, or be forced out of Donbas and Crimea and whatnot. They can win this shit on pure attrition, since Ukraine's going to run out of men first. It'd be absolutely humiliating, but I think people are being unrealistic in thinking Ukraine is winning outright. Best case scenario for them is a White Peace, barring any civil war in Russia.

      Because once the RuAF can no longer operate and IF Ukraine can wrest air control there is no way Russia is capable of supporting its defenses in either region. The units stationed there will starve to death as every ammo or expired ration shipment is sent to the bottom of the Black Sea.

      Which of course posits the west giving Ukraine enough airpower to do so before it runs out of personnel.

          Air superiority can be wrested by giving Ukraine modern 4th gens like F-15s. Practically every Russian movement is tracked by US satellite and relayed to Ukrainian intelligence.

          If NATO was in it to win it, it would've been training a large-scale Ukrainian Air Force, or even did that trick the Soviets did in Nam' and just have the "flight trainers" finish off the sickly RuAF from Krasnodar Krai.

      They are not going to collapse, that’s delusional. But the fact that this has been going on for 2 years now, and they have gained nothing, but lost significant amounts of personnel (not 500k but certainly above 100k), as well as ruined a country they should have and could have absorbed with soft power, puts this as a huge L.

      UA taking back Crimea, RU collapsing are both unrealistic copes. UA should have sued for a ceasefire early on, but this is definitely a win for US.

        Russia hasn't really been pushing for territory, it's been waging a war of attrition. I've been saying it since the war for Bakhmut started when I noticed Russia was repeating tactics they were doing in WW2.
        Russia has not been pushing for huge territorial gains since the very start of the war. They're waging a war of attrition trying to grind down the Ukrainian army and its been working. They won't start advancing until there's a collapse in the Ukrainian lines, I think we are months away from that.
        Imagine me being here for almost 2 years trying to explain to this delusional board that despite the headlines, Ukraine was losing. Here we are and this board is FINALLY starting to admit Ukraine has problems.
        I also don't believe Russia has had 500k killed, that's Ukrainian propaganda. I reckon Mediazona is correct and they estimate about 70-80k based on death registrations. This is a pro-Ukrainian source too btw.

          I am the poster you responded to. You are presenting the Russian side of cope. The “we never wanted to make territorial gains”, and “we haven’t sent the real troops yet”.
          We are solidly within the 3rd year of the war, and Russia is not really moving the needle. Is their hope for UA to sign off on becoming in the RU zone of influence completely, a-la BY? Because that’s not happening. There are plenty of hardcore Russian hating Ukies in the west around Lviv and Ivanofrankovsk that will not go for it and the rest will not be to keen either after 2 years of warfare.

          Their referendums in Kherson have absolutely shown that they want territorial expansion. From listening to Russian speaking media, anything without de-facto Russian governance of Kharkov and Odessa is going to be considered a loss. And rightly so

            Russia has not made any general advance since the beginning of the war. They've been applying pressure to bog down Ukrainian forces and force movement of forces around the front. Russia has been slowly building their forces, I think they plan to have 1.5 million by mid this year? It's a complete misrepresentation of the war to say Ukraine has been holding them back for 2 years when Russia hasn't been on the offensive in any serious state since the first few months of the war.

                Problem for Russia is that they let their cultural corruption rot their system from inside out during peace time. This stuff takes years to fix, as we are seeing. So they entered the war completely unprepared for it. If they had spent time fixing their military first it would have set off alarm bells something was up. They invaded completely unprepared, no choice.

                Russia has one thing going really well for it and that's military academies, which are top notch. it's the one thing Russia takes care of and doesnt allow to rot out during peace time.

                The corruption there is not just “cultural”. It’s very real. UA and RU are both very corrupt countries. Saying “they couldn’t have fixed it before invading” is also cope. They absolutely expected the Ukies to fold quickly. UA didn’t, but all of the ghost of Kiev garbage was just that -BS. They stopped the initial attack, but it did cost them. They had major wins RU was not prepared for the resistance they put, and for the logistics of fighting an actual war. RU was also significantly understaffed for it.

      RusBlack folk wish. As it stands, Russia loses disproportionately massive amounts of men and equipment in just about every move they make, and they are ill-suited to replacing much of either. Their demographic situation is shit, their industrial capabilities are nigh non-existent, their economy has completely shat the bed, and what's left of their military stockpiles is all either useless antediluvian technology, like BMP-1's, or rusted to the point of being inoperable. Despite these rather obvious problems, Russian tactics remain dependent on meatwave assaults, meaning the rate of attrition for the russian side is likely to remain constant, if not increase due to the depletion of any decent material. Ukraine on the other hand seems intent on maximizing russian deaths while minimizing their own, a position well supported by their more defensive posture and the supply of western equipment and weaponry. If things continue as they have been (and i see very little indication that they won't) the ukies are absolutely going to win a war of attrition as they seem to be the only ones who try to conserve their forces in any way.

Perhaps the only faction with any desire to grasp the purple right off the hop are the Kadyrovites, as the regime in Chechnya lives and dies on the dhimmi paid by Moscow, and grasping the purple is probably the only way that Ramzan can ensure continuity in the tribute payments.

        Whatever you say is in fact tankie historically revisionist bs, which is a common narrative nowardays to make russia stronk, and you are stupid basically.

          No. It's not Russia stronk because it's a failed system. Saying the system worked for a period is not a value based judgement or an endorsement of the system (since the statement is made in the context of "the system failed). it's a fact based assessment and nothing more.

          Not everyone goes through life feeling the need to treat shit like sports fanaticism.

      The opposite. That was when they lifted a lot of State repression and removed legacy from Stalin's paranoia. It precipitated the collapse of the USSR and perestroika in the 90's was far worse with the risk of malnutrition from poverty returning.
      That being said, the economic system didn't work and the prosperity of USSR entirely relied on the price of oil which was 90% of government revenue. If it wasn't for oil they would have had nothing, no military industry, no space industry, no medical industry. Everything they could accomplish could be traced to the price of oil allowing them to trade in international market to import.

                Even if you use much more conservative estimates, such as Oryx numbers or the BBC's recent attempts to confirm Russian KIA, it's a pretty grim picture.

                Oryx and BBC are not conservative, both are propaganda. It was a fricking moronic idea having open source count for Russian losses, it was obviously going to get filled will mentally ill redditors inflating things for morale.

                Mediazona is likely the most accurate since they use death registrations. It's pro-Ukraine too so there is no incentive for them to lie for Russia's favor. They estimate something like 70k-80k. If Russia was losing hundreds of thousands they would have had to do conscriptions. So far they can rely on offering contracts, they get enough volunteers.

      I'm used to it. /k/ is full of people who never experienced life outside the Internet. My favorite thing to do on here is post unattributed quotes about how the Ukraine is losing or should negotiate and let the (You)s pile up where they call me vatnik, Ivan, etc. then I link to the source showing the quotes coming from NATO officials, even generals. Then the cuc/k/s start coping with "they are just saying that to get more aid".
      This place sucks just like biz except it's going to take a lot more than requiring an email address to fix this shithole of a board.
      Note that most of my posts are deleted because troony jannies banned me for “off-topic” discussion. Meanwhile, the gays participating in the same discussion, but anti-Russian, remain unbanned and their posts undeleted.
