          Russia is big, and the borders are impossible to patrol. Ukrainian teams slip in all the time and setup shop, since many of them speak perfect Russian and can have perfectly legal Russian documents. So these teams could be coming from Finland, Kazakstan, Estonia, etc and going through the border with some trucks, assemble the UAVs in a field, launch them, and then return back to base.

            Not only does industrial machinery break down very easily but we are talking about Russia compounding the problem. And you can't just pack it up and start in a new building either. When the company I worked for tried moving our most important machine to a new factory it took almost a year for it to be taken apart, reassembled, made to just run, and then dialed in to actual make the product.

              This. Even organizational changes take insane amount of time and money, with so many factors to think about, skilled labor being the biggest. No-one in Russia with a high skillset such as in computing or precision engineering wants to live in Tatarstan unless they're compensated really well.

              If you suddenly wanna move the factory, you also gotta move the workers and that is gonna cost you.

          Russian air defense is actually GOOD. It just can't handle slow low flying UAVs and stealth cruise missiles. Ukraine has to slowly destroy Crimean air defense to get anything done, and even then they have to saturate the sky with UAVs and dummy cruise missiles to soak up air defense missiles so the real ones can get through.

          When an enemy can sit back forever and pick apart your air defenses, they WILL find openings.

        Not adapting to UAVs and cruise missiles despiting using them to attack Ukraine endlessly. Ukraine has mobile Anti-air fire teams with everything from SPAAG (rare) to technicals with M2 brownings (common). They drive around to where the attacks are coming and saturate the sky to shoot down Shaheds. Russia has missile air defense, but they don't seem to have cheap mobile air defense which is why everything is getting through.

Do one attack for real after the warnings, then randomise whether they attack or not on future warnings to maximise disruption.

              probably just leftover fuel from the trip.
              the plane can carry about 300kg of stuff after you remove the people necessary stuff. 20kg for all the dronification, and 120 liters of fuel (enough for trip and some, 90kg after extra tankage) leaves you 180kg for warhead. that's pretty good. That's for the A32, with the same allotments you get about 100kg on the A20. still a pretty annoying explosive charge to have land in the middle of your production area.

      Due to a lack of manpower, workers are being conscripted from students at a nearby college, as well as foreign workers lured in by promises of good jobs or education.

          This is how you join the Russian nation. They might not have much genes or cultural heritage in common, but they curse in Russian when their masters beat them. I suppose they have something in common that way, at least.
          If some people within Russia doesn't do that, the problem is solved by forcing them into trains and replacing them with convict laborers until the proper blyat density is achieved.
          This is how Russian became the majority language in much of Russia. And the majority "culture", if it can be called that.

          Russia has not collapsed because they import Africans, Central Asians, South Asians and then make them work in place of the conscripts and then eventually arrest the workers for 'entering illegally' and then send them to war instead of prison. Russia will never ever run out of men to send.

        Any more word on casualties? I really, really, hate to see teenagers get hurt and I hate the Russian state for putting them in harms way. I think Ukraine hitting the dormatory seems to be a mistake, as the factory floor would make more sense. And they should have attacked at night to try to avoid casualties. But this UAV system might not be that accurate, or not work at night at all.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          No deaths reported, and I can't find any info that states injuries were critical. It's unfortunate they're students/slaves, and I doubt their quarters was the intended target. They could have had intel that suggested that building had a different purpose as I could see administrative offices being placed close to living quarters- or in the same type of prefab structure as these appear to be.

            My first guess would be that the UAV isn't that accurate, or they mistakenly picked the wrong building, or they just dove for the first building they could. I would have figured the factory ground floor would be the ideal target, but apparently it wasn't targeted at all?

          Unfortunately, I don't think there's a good way to go about it to avoid hurting the kids when you can't guarantee where the bomb will full with 100% certainty.
          If you attack during the day and hit the factory, then you're unfortunately going to hit the kids working there. If you attack during the night, but you misjudge the approach, then you've just accidentally blown up an entire dormitory full of kids. You can't really win in this situation when it comes to collateral damage.

                I think anon's argument is roughly: pringles' personal incentives were aligned with keeping his forces on the advantage, so he had a unique opportunity to do a speaking truth to power shtick, with honest signalling about how things were.

                It's still wildly cynical, but it's a lot like becoming almost obnoxiously candid in response to being unable to sugarcoat a scandal. You can't countersignal and come out on top. You can only try for a level of perceived frankness and hope that other players' lack of that demeanor buff helps to condemn them in the public's eye.

              wrong. I was observing the mood in some russian communities back then. Pootin made a statement in the morning and then disappeared. Very few high-ranked officials expressed their support to him. Population was seemingly not against Pringles. Everyone was tracking his remaining distance to Moscow. The only things done to stop him were a few trenches dug in the highway and a btr + a machine gun nest on the entrance to Moscow.
              I've read the wikipedia article about the fall of Ceausescu and it felt absoultely the same. Suddenly one morning noone stood up for the beloved Supreme Leader.

                I also remember a bridge or something being used as a waypoint for Pringles march to Moscow, that waypoint being reached and gone past, then an hour or so later a photo of the bridge being destroyed. Also it was an AGS-13, not a machinegun from memory.
                But yeah it was surreal. No shills either, which kinda cemented it in my head that at least some of the people that post here are paid, or at least encouraged by people who are paid, to do so.

                Russians are cowardly cattle.

                They have no serious morals or ideals (outside of a vague sense of general nationalism), they were just standing around to see which Stongman came out on top so they could crawl underneath him.

                Actually it happened. Secret FSB detachment took Prigozhin's and some other Wagner members families as hostages and made phone call to Prigozhin to stop.
                This assassin's detachment was core foundation of the Putin's power and it was first thing he founded when he was appointed as PM. See his books https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Litvinenko

                They stood up after the fact, when Pringles halfassed the takeover and was no longer a direct violent threat.
                They also killed him by shooting down his plane filled with him and his underlings, when he stupidly served himself up on a platter by flying back into the country like a turky ready to be stuffed instead of staying abroad.

        Americans are in a catch 22 on multiple levels right now. They don't want Ukraine to lose (obviously), but they also don't want Russia to collapse into a warlord era Balkanization due to broken arrow and instability in global economics/balance of power (which, in my opinion, translates into "chickenshit state department"). So they have to give Russia an off ramp on some level where Russia can negotiate some sort of settlement (like maybe "you keep Crimea and Donbass, return to 2014 borders") or Russia just limps away and Ukraine gets pre-2014 borders. Which isn't going to happen, both Ukraine and Russia are all in and this is a fight to the death of one of them, but again. Chickenshit state department gonna chickenshit.

                We're not talking about funding to Ukraine, we're talking about US foreign policy - which is decided by the executive branch, not congress. And the policy of the state department is "status quo" not "Ukraine gets no weapons". State Department wants to give Ukraine weapons, but demands Ukraine not strike into Russia proper as it might cause Russia to: A. Escalate, although this is a stupid fear because it implies that Ukraine isn't allowed to actually defeat Russia, Russia is just supposed to cuck out eventually which won't happen; or B, collapse into warlord states and those states escalate with each other or sell nukes to terrorists.

                Don't make me tap the sign. It is literally the State Department's job to prevent a geopolitical crisis that has the possibility of nuclear war. As a result, it WILL sell Ukraine and Taiwan down the river if it feels necessary; but also will tacitly support them when convenient. Congress, on the other hand, funds the government via omnibuses that nobody can read and all b***hing about spending is theater. The executive branch does what it wants.

                You're both right, and dead wrong. It's all about the balancing act. If Putin believes he has an off ramp - which is to say a way to exit the Ukraine war with some gains or even no gains - then that will be preferable in theory to just banging his head against a wall until he is ousted or the last Russian dies. Because, to be fair, the fact is Russia cannot just keep fighting in the hopes that eventually Ukraine's defenses break, because Russia's force is already spent for the most part. So is Ukraine's, but that only leaves a stalemate. Not defeat. Thus the State Department "wins". A frozen conflict is a victory for them.

                But at the same time, yes you do have a point. China only learns from this conflict, particularly that the war needs to be over in weeks. Which is the same lesson you could draw from Germany's actions in WW1 and WW2.

                And I say this because the alternative is US getting involved to a point where Putin decides he has no off ramp and starts attacking the Baltics or using more deniable attacks against the US because he believes that there is no off ramp and thus nothing to lose and everything to gain from escalating. this is the State Department's lose scenario - not that the US is defeated in a fight or nuclear exchange, but one happens at all.

                Welcome to the 21st century, where nukes guarantee sovereignty. Enjoy your stay.
                If your next thought is "Well, then Taiwan should get a nuke and Ukraine should never have given them up", then yes. You're exactly right, and in a sane world that's what would happen. But the State Department is going to prevent that to due to nuclear disarmament. In the interest of peace and global stability, the right hand is fighting the left hand, and ultimately will cause more war but at a limited scale. US unilateral power will decline, more states (like Israel and Ukraine, the latter in the refinary attacks) will ignore US guidance while happily taking their weapons/funds, and in the end we'll likely see the US adjust its foreign policy towards NATO and a duplicate Pacific Bloc. Because again, only the nuclear umbrella matters.

                There is an off ramp - he could exit Ukraine within a fairly short timeframe if he chose to. With the population cowed, all potential challengers buried or exiled and his national guard as a backstop, he could easily fabricate an excuse for why Russia must fall back and rebuild its strength first, and still hold onto his throne, as long as he directs his full attention to staying in power.

                He chooses not to, because he thinks there is yet something to be won by grinding down Ukraine. And all talk of negotiated peace, concessions, de-escalation, simply reinforces his belief that he's making progress, that his adversary is growing weaker, that he can outlast the resistance.

                Russia knows that their factories and refineries and other places are under assault so why not try to defend them? Even simple chainguns (30mm) would work? Just point them at the sky and fire at anything coming in. Many Ukrainian fire teams are just running around Ukraine with M2 50 cals placed onto pickup trucks.

                Putin's ego won't allow for it. So he's fine fighting to the last Russian (who isn't himself).

                They got lulled into a false sense that they could attack Ukraine with impunity and they would not strike back. There are just too many attack vectors for Ukraine to hit that makes defending everything nearly impossible, and Russians still don’t want to accept that fact. They think simply retaliating with Shaheds and cruise missiles will stop this. Also HRIM-2 may be in active production, which means ballistic strikes are now possible.

                But I suspect it won't be enough in any way whatsoever, and the drones will continue to hit targets successfully.

                It is hard for me to describe how excited I am to see them fail miserably at their defence attempts once they even start having said attempts.

                Their ships still don't have CIWS, despite losing 1/3 of the black sea fleet. I don't see them adapting any time soon to the UAV attacks.

                All they need is 30mm chainguns or 14.5mm guns that can AIM DOWN. Right now the ship guns can't aim directly down so if the drone boat gets too close it literally cannot hit it, so the crew has to scramble finding whatever machine guns and AKs they have to fire at it.

                They got lulled into a false sense that they could attack Ukraine with impunity and they would not strike back. There are just too many attack vectors for Ukraine to hit that makes defending everything nearly impossible, and Russians still don’t want to accept that fact. They think simply retaliating with Shaheds and cruise missiles will stop this. Also HRIM-2 may be in active production, which means ballistic strikes are now possible.

                There's no war you stupid fricks. It's only a Special Military Operation against a CIA-backed Fascist coup in Ukraine. Why would they have to protect factories and refineries if there is no war?

                You're seeing it from 1. Putin's perspective. 2. A somewhat objective reality-like perspective.

                The US State Department doesn't see it from that perspective. They see it from the pespective of 200 years of deeply entrenched Liberal philosophy and political views regarding things like "game theory" and "rational actors" and just life in general, a perspective mostly produced from US Ivy League universities and from the deeply, fundamentally Liberal political culture of the United States, one that starts with the very founding of it.

                Deep down, the US State Department believes Putin will "pull out" because "he as a human being capable of logic, reason and the capacity to identify facts, so he will see he is losing and is not gaining anything from the war" and will just quit, so there's no need for anything that could cause an escalation of the war or any major changes to the world economy or international politics.

                Things like these, are why the United States has notoriously shtty foreign policy for the majority of its history.

                Realist theory is the bedrock of international relations theory, and while it says actors are rational, it doesn't mean they will be "reasonable". It's also a framework, with many different realist factions. As a dictator, Putin can't back down since authoritarian systems always double down and would rather double down until the entire system collapses than back down.

                For the state department, realism prefers detente and status quo because it likes stability. Putin and Russia are known actors, we have no idea what would replace him and it's entirely possible it could be worse.

                Example:
                >Gadaffi is an annoying pest everyone hates
                >Realist: Wouldn't this destabalize the country if we got rid of him? Can we be sure what will replace him is better?
                >Hillary and Obama: Nah, who cares? Lol nerd

                Then we saw the unstable Libya became the groundspot for the migrant crisis and a den of smugglers. Cautious defensive realism should be listened to.

                New policy? That's been the policy since the first monkey threw the first rock at the second monkey across the river.

                What do you expect the US to do?
                >Send weapons
                Okay, but where should those weapons be pointed? At mobniks, who will just be replaced with more mobniks? Russia has a higher population than Ukraine. Raw attrition won't win the war. Ukraine is RIGHTLY attacking Russia where it hurts, but this causes global disruption and potential escalation of the war; which the US government doesn't want because why would it?

                >This is GOING to lead to every nation greater than Liechtenstein to (secretly) develop nuclear technology, since that's the only thing that will keep you safe.
                And they should, because that's the only thing that will. The fact is the United States is not going to save anyone from Russia, China, or Iran unless one of those three countries gets the bright idea of attacking US/NATO forces first.
