>The two-finger peace sign, also known as the “V” sign, has different meanings in different cultures. In the United States and many other countries, it is often seen as a symbol of peace or victory1. However, in some countries like the UK, Australia, and South Africa, if the “V” sign is made with the back of the hand facing the other person, it can be considered extremely insulting2.

      That goes for most people, even historically. Some used it for victory, others used it as a peace sign, while others supposedly used it as an insult. Nixon did the front facing version with both hands, while Churchill did the single hand version with his palm both facing away from himself and towards himself, even if that was supposedly controversial in his time.
      Then again, you never know with that cheeky, fat c**t.

          Bakhmut was a fine place to bleed out Russia and its proxies and it did so excellently seeing as it lasted for over a year and knocked Wagner (and god knows how many tens of thousands of Russians) out of the war with comparatively few Ukrainian losses.

            There is a fair argument to be made that they stayed in the city too long and should have pulled out to avoid the urban warfare while surrounded on three flanks. That's where the ratios became less favourable.

              No, no it really can't. Russia already has a severe manpower shortage in its economy.

              >Meanwhile Ukraine lost its best troops
              No, that was Russia in the first year of the war. Ukraine meanwhile has been able to consistently preserve its veteran troops and rotate them regularily so that they could share their experience with newcomers and convert it from personal to institutional experience.

              >and they are currently suffering for it
              They're currently massacring the ziggers at such a rate that they will literally exterminate Russias entire male population before Ukraine gets even close to suffering real manpower issues themselves.

          Yes that argument falls apart when one realises that these mythical "less favourable" ratios are mostly the product of zigger propaganda and the ziggers continued to get slaughtered right to the end. You're trying to push literal vatnik propaganda on us here, either because you're a zigger or because you've fallen hard for it yourself.

      >When displayed with the palm inward toward the signer, it can be an offensive gesture in some Commonwealth nations (similar to showing the middle finger), dating back to at least 1900. When given with the palm outward, it is to be read as a victory sign ("V for Victory"); this usage was introduced in January 1941 as part of a campaign by the Allies of World War II,

      >A commonly repeated legend claims that the two-fingered salute or V sign derives from a gesture made by longbowmen fighting in the English army at the Battle of Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years' War, but no written historical primary sources support this contention.[26] This origin legend states that English archers believed that those who were captured by the French had their index and middle fingers cut off so that they could no longer operate their longbows, and that the V sign was used by uncaptured and victorious archers in a display of defiance against the French.
