        It's okay to say that out of a scenario of three parts that the first part went well.
        In a sports game, for example, your team can be up in the first half then lose 10,000 vehicles over 2 years of your 3 day military exercise in the second half.
        The team still did okay that first half. That's okay to say. Don't be so autistic.

        Did you know you can examine events that occured within a scenario individually?
        The initial drop and seizure of Hostomel was successful. The events after were a failure and the actual outcome of the entire scenario was a failure for the RuAF.
        Just because copelord is conflating initial success with overall outcome doesn't mean you have to be a contradictory twat.

          The initial drop you speak of were wiped out with the VDV having to land outside the airport. The "seizure" you say included the whole airport destroyed and the runways blown to bits which meant it couldn't be used for anything and from the first day to the day they left there couldn't bring in planes and were under artillery fire.

          Stop with this fricking autism. Take your fricking meds, taking things too literally and not understanding nuance is a sign of autism. You're not israeli so it obviously can't be fricking phariseeism.

          The VDV "landed" and "seized" the airport the same way I park my car by running it into the fricking wall and breaking my neck. Frick off, take your meds.

      No, they technically didn't seize it just fine. They totally failed their objective because they were too slow and the Ukrainians were able to disable the runway. Airfield seizure needs to take the airfield intact - an airfield with an inoperable runway isn't an airfield, it's just a random field.

          The real objective was to land thousands more troops on heavy transport planes, which absolutely cannot land on rough ground or even light tarmac.

          Seizing =/= securing. VDV's job was to secure it and they failed.

      No it's not. The purpose of the operation is to seize the airport as an airbridge -IN ORDER TO BRING IN MORE TROOPS BY IL76-. Did they do that second part? No? THEN IT'S A FRICKING FAILURE

          Their objective was to capture Kiev as fast as possible by using the airport for troop and armor transport. They thought they could capture Kiev before Ukraine had time to organize a defence.

          • 4 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            They wanted to encircle Kiev, but not capture it — until that became necessary, ie, plan B in a regime-change plan. However, as long as AD remains up they simply CAN’T use the airport so even if they did originally intend to use it they would have to give up on that no matter how well the VDV performed. The fact that they pulled out the next day after having linked up with a ground unit tells me they never actually wanted to use it otherwise I’d imagine they’d hold on for a while longer hoping they could knock out AD shortly. This was BEFORE the UA had mustered their defenses so it’s not as if those VDV were urgently needed somewhere else more important than an airport they wanted to make use of.

              Air defense was not the main issue, it was artillery and the fact that the UA remained active and did not rout. This was obviously planned as a repeat of Czechoslovakia and Operation-222, but those only worked because the enemy dissolved on contact and they had intact infrastructure to fly in reinforcements and supplies.

              No. They intended to capture it from the outset.
              That's not conjecture; we know because (picrel) when the 1st Guards Tank Army abandoned vehicles outside of Kyiv, they left behind copies of their orders from the Kremlin. A decapitation strike on Kyiv was THE lynchpin of the Russian plan to install a puppet government quickly enough that the West would have to accept it as a fait accompli.
              Further details from the source here: https://static.rusi.org/359-SR-Ukraine-Preliminary-Lessons-Feb-July-2022-web-final.pdf
              > The northern axis was the main effort, focused on the encirclement and capture of Kyiv. For this purpose, the Russians formed two groups of forces commanded from the Eastern Military District Command Post. One group was formed in the Gomel region of Belarus and used the tactical sign ‘V’ with orders to attack Kyiv along the right (western) bank of the Dnipro River. The second group was formed in the Bryansk region of Russia and used the tactical sign ‘O’ with orders to surround Kyiv from the left (eastern) bank.

                The massive amount of top end (for Russia) gear left behind in the opening days of the war is a big part of why Ukraine managed to hold on and make big gains in the counter offensives in Kherson and Kharkov. Russia really was the #1 supplier of military equipment to Ukraine in that time.

          Once they could not establish control over the airbase, the reinforcements being brought in by IL-76s had to be re-routed to Belarus. The air defense angle just goes to show how completely Russian intel failed prior to the war.
          Face it, the VDV were sent on a suicide mission and their only success was to die in the manner in which they were sent.

          It's pretty well established that the Russians thought they were going to knock out all the AD in the initial strikes. Unfortunately for them they completely underestimated Ukraine's mobile AD assets, and relied on extremely outdated intel about where the fixed stuff was, quite a few Russian missiles hit locations that where AD installations had been years previously (some literally during the Soviet era) but were long gone. This is why there were so many Russian aircraft shot down in the initial invasion too, they flew in expecting zero resistance and were caught totally by surprise.
          It's not at all hard to believe that the Russians planned on flying cargo planes right into the airport.

          That was a month later iirc. Their taints weren't as bruised yet during the airport fiasco. Honestly if anything the unit's later behavior is likely informed by how fricking awful everything went for them during the previous month. All those unsupported helicopter raids across MANPAD land, getting blasted off the airport, daylight paradrops, etc. Kind of shocking they aren't implicated in more war crimes yet, but i guess most of them were dead by late march, so it's probably lack of manpower.

      No, they were fricked from day 1. Forget about ground forces linkup - the *airlanding reinforcement* wasn't on the table - and that was critical for even having a shot at actually holding the area and having a chance to survive until the armor drove up (which it never could have because of the 40-mile traffic jam). This wasn't Market Garden, this was like the Soviet VDV suicide jumps during the 1941 counter-offensives. Did Stalin never tell you about those? I wonder why.

    How can they succeed in taking and holding the airfield if they left after a day?

      Why they left the next day is up to speculation. Maybe they originally wanted to use the airport but couldn’t because AD hadn’t been knocked out so that was impossible. Maybe it was a diversion, maybe it was to deny the use of the airport for day 1 ops.

      For those unaware, this was an article that was accidentally posted by Russian media when they thought the invasion was going to be successful. It was immediately retracted, but people screen capped it. Interestingly, it effectively broadcasts all of Russia's insecurities by stating the real reasons got the invasion. I'm surprised this hasn't been weaponized as a psyop on a more widespread scale. Things that make Russians cry:

      >The knowledge they are irrelevant and their geopolitical power has been declining for 30 years.
      >The fear that other states doing better than them and soon they will be a "have-not" state.
      >A East-West Germany scenario where Russians have the option to flee to a prosperous, democratic, western aligned Ukraine
      >The knowledge that their military/demographics/oligarchy is collapsing and this was their last chance to invade
      >Domestic unrest from war fatigue and western sanctions impacting livelihoods.
      >EU + US cohesion containing them

      TZD. Their whole worldview seems to be about stealing someone else's toilet rather than fixing their own.

              I don't see why they shouldn't. Almost every young educated person in Russia is against the war. Young Adult immigrants with higher education who can easily learn to speak Ukrainian are the holy grail of immigration. They aren't really a security threat since theymost likely oppose the current Russian regime and are nominally pro-west. A Million+ have already fled to Georgia/Armenia/the -Stans. I'd bet good money they'd prefer to live in Ukraine where there is more opportunity compared to those places + potential future EU membership. If you consider Russian speakers themselves as a national security concern, I'd argue that since Zelensky and Azov are Russian speakers you'd be dead fricking wrong about excluding them based on language and cultural background. Security checks, sure, but immigration of young adults from Russia bleeds Russia and makes Ukraine stronger, IMO.

                not him, but before war Ukraine was generally known in the EU as a turbo corrupt country run by mafia. Basically russia, but smaller.
                There's a good reason why a lot of eastern euros don't like ukies - because a lot of ukies who "work" there are either mafia, or thugs.
                You have to understand eastern european countries- that after soviet union fell, there was a decade of total chaose lawlessness, and anarchy. A lot of shit got stolen by shitty people, who quickly became oligarchs and started doing business. And these people exist to this day - often in goverment positions.

                It would be hard to condense the answer for a point like this into a single post, here's 6 just for surface stuff.
                The core of the issue is that since 1991 nobody really cleaned house after the commie regime and scars of the soviet past still haunt the country and society, despite some reforms and token decommunization.
                One of the reasons for this is people who were in power mostly staying in power, perpetuating the soviet tradition of turbo corruption and nepotism. This is compounded by the fact that people lived so long with that shit during soviet times that they low key see that thing as normal and/or even beneficial.
                Many people would unironically tell you that corruption is good, while not actually being the benefactors of it and instead the victims of it: "hurr-durr, corruption is good, thanks to it I just gave a bribe of X dollars and got the issue solved in few days and without it I'd need to spend like months to solve it", i.e. people unironically don't understand that the whole reason they are put into a position where some BS red tape shit takes months of time is specifically an artificially constructed situation by the corrupt homosexuals, basically placing them into a position where they can't live normally without paying bribes. Why? Because they didn't know better, because this is a natural continuation of soviet corruption, which might have been cheaper (because people were poor AF), but still required constant bribing to make thing work even a tiny bit.
                Basically people in public sector and similar fields won't do shit until they get their wheels greased. Because the system doesn't have normal mechanism for responsibility and feedback. Because a ton of fricked up soviet red tape still exists, specifically to frick up your life. And a lot of that shit then would get entrenched and even more monetized by what you might call the "corrupt deep state", because people in such a system would obviously want to have more ways to monetize shit.

                This creates a situation similar to cancer, where the system that should solve the issue is part of the issue. You can't expect cancer to cure itself. It's just too valuable of a mechanism to try and destroy for anyone in power, not only because of the amount of money it brings in (and yes, the flow of money goes to the top, as in with any organization, the old soviet criminal code "you steal for yourself, you share with the bros" applies, i.e. some low level homosexual gets money and shares it with his boss, the boss then shares with his own boss and it goes all the way to the government), but also because the power it provides. When all of the homosexuals don't have any responsibility and are tied by corruption, they'll do anything you tell them, hence you can use not only to protect someone, but also to create issues for someone. A person is being a pain? Let's have the tax office wake up and say that the apartment he sold 5 years ago in the middle of the economic crisis caused by Crimea and Donbas war was undervalued like 5x market price and thus he skimmed on taxed. Proof? What proof? Frick you, we're the government, we invent shit out of thin air. Let's the jail this person. And so on.
                2/6

                Any time processes would get successfully improved (and such situation did happen) it's at least partially caused by just removing a specific process from being done by people it was previously handled, or just outsourced entirely. Some of issues like this solved themselves via the market, such as basically the local package shipping industry overtaking the notoriously shitty state-run postal company. But there's also the issue of people's mentality being stuck doing things which they did before. Here's a fricked up example from around 2014: a friend of a colleague had his kid reach the age where they'd need (want) to send him to the kindergarten, they go to a local municipal one and get told that "hurr-durr, not enough vacant positions in the kindergarten to go around, you had to get in queue 5 years (when they didn't have a kid yet lol) ago to get a position new", while obviously signaling that they expect him to pay the bribe. Because that what they do. They are put in a position where they control access to something you need, nobody would frick them over for their shit, so they demand bribes or else. So the guy goes and pays $5K and the position for his kid magically appears. When I was first told of this situation it honestly blew my mind, not only because the degenerate in question actually went and paid $5K just for access to the shitty soviet municipal kindergarten (not the services of going there by the way, that would cost on top, albeit being cheap), instead of going to a private one where no such BS would take place, and where his $5K would pay for years of a very good one, but also why did he even need kindergarten in the first place? His wife doesn't work, the kid can stay home. "Hurr-durr well, back when I was a kid my parents sent me to a kindergarten, so that's normal, so that's what I'll do as well" - like no frickin' shit, as if your parents had a frickin' choice.
                3/6

                When this sort of shit exists for decades after decades it fricks up things to such a degree that you have teens dreaming of going to specific public position to steal stuff. Imagine a 16 y.o. kid saying shit like he want to go work in the customs office, because people there "get" a shit load of money. Or the tax office, or the police, or the court system, or the any government work in general. Basically, no normal person would touch those position with a ten foot pole. And even if they somehow got there, they'd either get corrupted in some time themselves (imagine basically a normal person starts working it local government and then he starts lying by default, even to friend and family, even when discussing things which don't matter and have no benefit for him, because that's his default mode now), or they'll run away screaming from that hell hole, or they'll get squeezed out. Hey, somebody needs to get jailed for corruption, right? Let's frame the new guy who thinks he's better than us kek.
                This could be changed, but requires a ton of political will and integrity from the top, which is obviously isn't there. Because if you have it, you would need to start jailing your own guys that you brought in with yourself for loyalty reasons and they started doing corrupt shit. But you can't do that, because they are "your guys", at most you'll fire them. But what sort of incentives that creates? Sure, you can do corrupt things, but you'll never answer for this, at most you'll lose your position personally.
                In such a system good results happen only by chance and there are a ton of people who'd frick over any good project or initiative just because it happens without their greasy fingers being involved.
                4/6

                And yes, this is in many ways caused / stimulated by russians. Because such a system provides them additional control and influence. Hence why the relations between russia and Georgia started falling apart only when Saakashvili started firing entrenched corrupt homosexuals. Because if you remove corruption, it erodes the pidor influence matrix. But, once cultivated and stimulated, it creates a ton of local entrenched interest. Because it creates layers of society which can live like kings, compared to regular folks, without doing anything productive in their lives.
                Here's a fricked up example from around 2012: your regular frick can barely afford a new $10K Daewoo Lanos, while you drive around on a pretty much new Toyota Land Cruiser which cost you $5K, because it was stolen in EU and illegally imported here (because you can't register it within the EU) and registered under bogus documents in the registry, you have access to his car because you father is a cop in the right position, and those people have this cottage industry of these cheap fancy cars, which they can enjoy without paying a real price for them.
                You want to import a car from EU or US? Get ready to be raped financially. Some Black person with connection imports is? Zero payment, yanukovich personally will sign a decree saying that you're importing this Cadillac Escalade as a way to help the local agricultural industry and thus you shouldn't need to pay taxes or import duties on it. (Not a joke).
                So yes, even though it's nowhere near the level of shit being done in russia, it's still bad and fricked up.
                And even a ton of progress happening since 2014 didn't magically fix almost a century of soviet frickery.
                5/6

                So yes, while in some locations shit got fixed after attacks pretty fast, any local would point you to examples of when things are different and shit gets dragged out for months and months without too much progress, because the corrupt fricks don't care about the result, they care that the affiliated company would work on this and thus skim over the money. Like it's pretty bad in Zaporizhia for example. People know about it, it's in the media, for some reason nobody is getting jailed for this.
                This is partially the similar reason why a lot of local MIC projects are fricked: corruption, traitors and all that shit.
                6/6

                [...]
                This isn't because of the government, but because people. People here, despite being fricked over by soviet shit, are still generally way more proactive and have way more initiative, compared to russia. Russia is hyper-paternalism going apeshit. Ukraine is grassroots country.

                And yes, this is in many ways caused / stimulated by russians. Because such a system provides them additional control and influence. Hence why the relations between russia and Georgia started falling apart only when Saakashvili started firing entrenched corrupt homosexuals. Because if you remove corruption, it erodes the pidor influence matrix. But, once cultivated and stimulated, it creates a ton of local entrenched interest. Because it creates layers of society which can live like kings, compared to regular folks, without doing anything productive in their lives.
                Here's a fricked up example from around 2012: your regular frick can barely afford a new $10K Daewoo Lanos, while you drive around on a pretty much new Toyota Land Cruiser which cost you $5K, because it was stolen in EU and illegally imported here (because you can't register it within the EU) and registered under bogus documents in the registry, you have access to his car because you father is a cop in the right position, and those people have this cottage industry of these cheap fancy cars, which they can enjoy without paying a real price for them.
                You want to import a car from EU or US? Get ready to be raped financially. Some Black person with connection imports is? Zero payment, yanukovich personally will sign a decree saying that you're importing this Cadillac Escalade as a way to help the local agricultural industry and thus you shouldn't need to pay taxes or import duties on it. (Not a joke).
                So yes, even though it's nowhere near the level of shit being done in russia, it's still bad and fricked up.
                And even a ton of progress happening since 2014 didn't magically fix almost a century of soviet frickery.
                5/6

                So yes, while in some locations shit got fixed after attacks pretty fast, any local would point you to examples of when things are different and shit gets dragged out for months and months without too much progress, because the corrupt fricks don't care about the result, they care that the affiliated company would work on this and thus skim over the money. Like it's pretty bad in Zaporizhia for example. People know about it, it's in the media, for some reason nobody is getting jailed for this.
                This is partially the similar reason why a lot of local MIC projects are fricked: corruption, traitors and all that shit.
                6/6

                [...]
                This isn't because of the government, but because people. People here, despite being fricked over by soviet shit, are still generally way more proactive and have way more initiative, compared to russia. Russia is hyper-paternalism going apeshit. Ukraine is grassroots country.

                Wonderful posts. I never even put a foot in Europe but I recognize this whole process due to living in a shithole with a long history of corporatists and socialists in positions of power.

                And yes it all goes back to paternalist state policies and the culture it creates, though in here it wasn't communism, but rather an attempt to build a populist, corporate state.

                Right now, in a state here, a bridge was damaged by a flood. The government estimatives for repairing the bridge were ate 26 million. The local population with a local construction company repaired the bridge for 6 million, all paid out of their own pockets. Unfortunately that's rare as in a country like this people with this much money and with private businesses available to work with them are not common.

                This creates a situation similar to cancer, where the system that should solve the issue is part of the issue. You can't expect cancer to cure itself. It's just too valuable of a mechanism to try and destroy for anyone in power, not only because of the amount of money it brings in (and yes, the flow of money goes to the top, as in with any organization, the old soviet criminal code "you steal for yourself, you share with the bros" applies, i.e. some low level homosexual gets money and shares it with his boss, the boss then shares with his own boss and it goes all the way to the government), but also because the power it provides. When all of the homosexuals don't have any responsibility and are tied by corruption, they'll do anything you tell them, hence you can use not only to protect someone, but also to create issues for someone. A person is being a pain? Let's have the tax office wake up and say that the apartment he sold 5 years ago in the middle of the economic crisis caused by Crimea and Donbas war was undervalued like 5x market price and thus he skimmed on taxed. Proof? What proof? Frick you, we're the government, we invent shit out of thin air. Let's the jail this person. And so on.
                2/6

                Any time processes would get successfully improved (and such situation did happen) it's at least partially caused by just removing a specific process from being done by people it was previously handled, or just outsourced entirely. Some of issues like this solved themselves via the market, such as basically the local package shipping industry overtaking the notoriously shitty state-run postal company. But there's also the issue of people's mentality being stuck doing things which they did before. Here's a fricked up example from around 2014: a friend of a colleague had his kid reach the age where they'd need (want) to send him to the kindergarten, they go to a local municipal one and get told that "hurr-durr, not enough vacant positions in the kindergarten to go around, you had to get in queue 5 years (when they didn't have a kid yet lol) ago to get a position new", while obviously signaling that they expect him to pay the bribe. Because that what they do. They are put in a position where they control access to something you need, nobody would frick them over for their shit, so they demand bribes or else. So the guy goes and pays $5K and the position for his kid magically appears. When I was first told of this situation it honestly blew my mind, not only because the degenerate in question actually went and paid $5K just for access to the shitty soviet municipal kindergarten (not the services of going there by the way, that would cost on top, albeit being cheap), instead of going to a private one where no such BS would take place, and where his $5K would pay for years of a very good one, but also why did he even need kindergarten in the first place? His wife doesn't work, the kid can stay home. "Hurr-durr well, back when I was a kid my parents sent me to a kindergarten, so that's normal, so that's what I'll do as well" - like no frickin' shit, as if your parents had a frickin' choice.
                3/6

                When this sort of shit exists for decades after decades it fricks up things to such a degree that you have teens dreaming of going to specific public position to steal stuff. Imagine a 16 y.o. kid saying shit like he want to go work in the customs office, because people there "get" a shit load of money. Or the tax office, or the police, or the court system, or the any government work in general. Basically, no normal person would touch those position with a ten foot pole. And even if they somehow got there, they'd either get corrupted in some time themselves (imagine basically a normal person starts working it local government and then he starts lying by default, even to friend and family, even when discussing things which don't matter and have no benefit for him, because that's his default mode now), or they'll run away screaming from that hell hole, or they'll get squeezed out. Hey, somebody needs to get jailed for corruption, right? Let's frame the new guy who thinks he's better than us kek.
                This could be changed, but requires a ton of political will and integrity from the top, which is obviously isn't there. Because if you have it, you would need to start jailing your own guys that you brought in with yourself for loyalty reasons and they started doing corrupt shit. But you can't do that, because they are "your guys", at most you'll fire them. But what sort of incentives that creates? Sure, you can do corrupt things, but you'll never answer for this, at most you'll lose your position personally.
                In such a system good results happen only by chance and there are a ton of people who'd frick over any good project or initiative just because it happens without their greasy fingers being involved.

                I'm just a jaded and butthurt old fricker who was literally born in USSR and had his work eroded to shit multiple times due to overall soviet-tier Black persontry happening in Ukraine. Don't get me wrong, if it were my decision, I'd drop nukes on russia without taking a single moment of doubt, but one should still objectively look at issues we have within the country.

                you still keep most of the staff because they still have to push paper. But you make sure that the guy that pushes the paper and the guy that need the paper push don't meet/know each other.
                you can't get rid off all corruption with it but it helps clean up culture bottom up because the new guys don't get to learn corruption in their starting position.
                That and EU public tender rules, makes dodgy shit stand out like crazy. Doesn't fix everything automatically but sure helps because it forces them to make a uniform paper trail that any corruption hunter can use. Or a competitor that got snubbed and wants to file a civil suit (which I have done and won).

Proof? What proof? Frick you, we're the government, we invent shit out of thin air. Let's the jail this person. And so on.
                2/6

                Any time processes would get successfully improved (and such situation did happen) it's at least partially caused by just removing a specific process from being done by people it was previously handled, or just outsourced entirely. Some of issues like this solved themselves via the market, such as basically the local package shipping industry overtaking the notoriously shitty state-run postal company. But there's also the issue of people's mentality being stuck doing things which they did before. Here's a fricked up example from around 2014: a friend of a colleague had his kid reach the age where they'd need (want) to send him to the kindergarten, they go to a local municipal one and get told that "hurr-durr, not enough vacant positions in the kindergarten to go around, you had to get in queue 5 years (when they didn't have a kid yet lol) ago to get a position new", while obviously signaling that they expect him to pay the bribe. Because that what they do. They are put in a position where they control access to something you need, nobody would frick them over for their shit, so they demand bribes or else. So the guy goes and pays $5K and the position for his kid magically appears. When I was first told of this situation it honestly blew my mind, not only because the degenerate in question actually went and paid $5K just for access to the shitty soviet municipal kindergarten (not the services of going there by the way, that would cost on top, albeit being cheap), instead of going to a private one where no such BS would take place, and where his $5K would pay for years of a very good one, but also why did he even need kindergarten in the first place? His wife doesn't work, the kid can stay home. "Hurr-durr well, back when I was a kid my parents sent me to a kindergarten, so that's normal, so that's what I'll do as well" - like no frickin' shit, as if your parents had a frickin' choice.
                3/6

                When this sort of shit exists for decades after decades it fricks up things to such a degree that you have teens dreaming of going to specific public position to steal stuff. Imagine a 16 y.o. kid saying shit like he want to go work in the customs office, because people there "get" a shit load of money. Or the tax office, or the police, or the court system, or the any government work in general. Basically, no normal person would touch those position with a ten foot pole. And even if they somehow got there, they'd either get corrupted in some time themselves (imagine basically a normal person starts working it local government and then he starts lying by default, even to friend and family, even when discussing things which don't matter and have no benefit for him, because that's his default mode now), or they'll run away screaming from that hell hole, or they'll get squeezed out. Hey, somebody needs to get jailed for corruption, right? Let's frame the new guy who thinks he's better than us kek.
                This could be changed, but requires a ton of political will and integrity from the top, which is obviously isn't there. Because if you have it, you would need to start jailing your own guys that you brought in with yourself for loyalty reasons and they started doing corrupt shit. But you can't do that, because they are "your guys", at most you'll fire them. But what sort of incentives that creates? Sure, you can do corrupt things, but you'll never answer for this, at most you'll lose your position personally.
                In such a system good results happen only by chance and there are a ton of people who'd frick over any good project or initiative just because it happens without their greasy fingers being involved.
                4/6

                And yes, this is in many ways caused / stimulated by russians. Because such a system provides them additional control and influence. Hence why the relations between russia and Georgia started falling apart only when Saakashvili started firing entrenched corrupt homosexuals. Because if you remove corruption, it erodes the pidor influence matrix. But, once cultivated and stimulated, it creates a ton of local entrenched interest. Because it creates layers of society which can live like kings, compared to regular folks, without doing anything productive in their lives.
                Here's a fricked up example from around 2012: your regular frick can barely afford a new $10K Daewoo Lanos, while you drive around on a pretty much new Toyota Land Cruiser which cost you $5K, because it was stolen in EU and illegally imported here (because you can't register it within the EU) and registered under bogus documents in the registry, you have access to his car because you father is a cop in the right position, and those people have this cottage industry of these cheap fancy cars, which they can enjoy without paying a real price for them.
                You want to import a car from EU or US? Get ready to be raped financially. Some Black person with connection imports is? Zero payment, yanukovich personally will sign a decree saying that you're importing this Cadillac Escalade as a way to help the local agricultural industry and thus you shouldn't need to pay taxes or import duties on it. (Not a joke).
                So yes, even though it's nowhere near the level of shit being done in russia, it's still bad and fricked up.
                And even a ton of progress happening since 2014 didn't magically fix almost a century of soviet frickery.
                5/6

                So yes, while in some locations shit got fixed after attacks pretty fast, any local would point you to examples of when things are different and shit gets dragged out for months and months without too much progress, because the corrupt fricks don't care about the result, they care that the affiliated company would work on this and thus skim over the money. Like it's pretty bad in Zaporizhia for example. People know about it, it's in the media, for some reason nobody is getting jailed for this.
                This is partially the similar reason why a lot of local MIC projects are fricked: corruption, traitors and all that shit.
                6/6

                [...]
                This isn't because of the government, but because people. People here, despite being fricked over by soviet shit, are still generally way more proactive and have way more initiative, compared to russia. Russia is hyper-paternalism going apeshit. Ukraine is grassroots country.

                Good effortposting, thanks anon. I was incidentally interested in post-Soviet Europe long before this recent dust-up so it's been equal parts amusing and frustrating to see so many people sucking Ukraine's wiener and pretending that it was always comparable to western Europe when it absolutely has not been and that everything is going to change overnight when the war is over. In the post-Soviet era Ukraine been massively corrupt, generally a shithole on par with the richer parts of Russia and its global relevance outside of its neighbors was largely limited to growing grain for the third world and exporting prostitutes and child pornography - though in fairness I'll say that they've been improving, although that's a big part of their current problems. I've been meaning to write up an essay on what I see as the cultural relevance of the war and I might get around to it but if I don't then the tl;dr is that this entire mess is literally just an ego-driven punitive expedition and any strategic and military concerns for Russia are tertiary.

                This creates a situation similar to cancer, where the system that should solve the issue is part of the issue. You can't expect cancer to cure itself. It's just too valuable of a mechanism to try and destroy for anyone in power, not only because of the amount of money it brings in (and yes, the flow of money goes to the top, as in with any organization, the old soviet criminal code "you steal for yourself, you share with the bros" applies, i.e. some low level homosexual gets money and shares it with his boss, the boss then shares with his own boss and it goes all the way to the government), but also because the power it provides. When all of the homosexuals don't have any responsibility and are tied by corruption, they'll do anything you tell them, hence you can use not only to protect someone, but also to create issues for someone. A person is being a pain? Let's have the tax office wake up and say that the apartment he sold 5 years ago in the middle of the economic crisis caused by Crimea and Donbas war was undervalued like 5x market price and thus he skimmed on taxed.

      No, it isn't. Dieppe learned that you couldn't get tanks onto shingle beaches because they just got stuck. They learned that heavy bunkers were resistant to the current weapons on tanks right now. They learned that flamethrowers were needed to clear bunkers, but troop carriers were exposed. They learned that you needed to have a distraction force to hold off reinforcements before the beachhead was made. They learned you needed people to set up defences to resist counter-attacks once the beachhead was made. They learned you needed bombing runs around the areas you were going to hit, not the area you were hitting.

      Like, there is so much they learned from Dieppe that your post actually angers me.

        You forgot the biggest learning point - taking an existing port fast enough to support an invasion wasn't practical if defended, so they needed to bring their own ports with them or use other means of offloading cargo such as DUKWs.

    The air assault worked, the ground forces couldn’t link up with at the airfield. The VDV was then targeted by artillery and obliterated/hunted into the woods by the Ukrainians.

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      The air assault got men on the ground, but saying it “worked” requires you par back the goals of that phase of the operation to the point that not further phase of the operation can succeed. It’s like saying someone successfully landed an airplane when they hit an office building at 100 mph 30 feet after the wheels touched the ground.

      A successful version of the Hostomel air assault would include getting enough combat power down to neutralize the artillery and drive off the attack helicopter, allowing the air bridge maneuver to be completed.
      The VDV managed to deny Ukraine use of Hostomel airport, but that wasn’t their goal, a competent bombing run or missile strike could have done that without massacring Russia’s best fighters. The goal of any air assault on an airport, like the one on Hostomel, is to secure the airport for the attacking force’s use, not merely deny it to the enemy. In the end, the VDV successfully spent ~300 men and 8 helicopters to “””accomplish””” what would take the US Navy approximately 20 Tomahawks or the US airforce approximately 20 GBU-53B Stormbreakers.

      • 4 weeks ago

        The "air assault" didn't even get them on the ground because the first few landings were wiped out and the VDV immediately switched to landing outside the airport in the woods on the side opposite the side of the airport the Ukrainians were in. They only managed to land in the airport after the troops from outside the airport reached it and by then the damage was already done.

      To be fair, there is a lot of resistance to accepting Ukraine into the EU due to agriculture. Farmers form the core of a lot of the right wing parties who are on the rise atm are dead set against accepting Ukraine because the combination of location and soil conditions means that a Ukrainian farmer can outperform any competition in the EU by a huge margin unless they're a big agricorp. During the first months of the war the EU allowed Ukrainian produce to be shipped by rail into the EU which cause a crash in prices as the agricultural markets were flooded with cheap Ukrainian fruit/grains, leading to several ape outs across the continent. If Ukraine is ever going to enter the Union it won't happen until they find a way to keep Ukrainian produce flowing out of Europe to protect domestic growers, that being said there is a lot of energy behind the movement so I think the 2030/40 timeline is pretty realistic.

    Holding a static position makes you an easy target even for inferior forces.
    Not holding territory means your side does not control the location.

    This is part of what makes war miserable. Even the most elite forces die if they act like guards.
    Offense has been stronger than defense since gunpowder was invented.

    If you stay relatively static you get precision bombed or hit with arty. If you constantly are mobile you hit mines and ambushes. Mines and ambushes tend to wipe out less of you than being obliterated by ordinance, so mobile is better but still results in regular casualties that cannot be countered by the skill of the soldier. War is hell.
    Just imagine how many quality fighters have died because even one guy uses a cell phone to call home or use the internet and the opposition then kills all soldiers in that location having located it as a result.
    All those volunteer glory seekers posting updates probably got most of the people they worked with killed.

The VDV, separatists, Volunteer paramilitary units, Kadyrov Mafia goons, National Guard, Sea Infantry, Gazprom mercs now Wagner. They were either wiped out, or hit hard enough they ran off. It's now just mobiks, mobik units and more mobik units. That and Storm-Z.

      I know some russians think the war needs to continue at any cost because russia will be destroyed by ukraine and NATO without it (lol), but I don't understand what they think they could possibly gain from it at this point.
      Are they just fighting and dying because they're told to?
      Actual fricking serf mentality

      they didn't secure anything because the airport and runway was destroyed on the first day and they had to retreat to the woods on the second day. They returned on the 3rd day once the support collumn showed up. They couldn't land helicopters at the airport during these 3 days either due to the fire, the waves after the first landings all landed outside the airport in the woods.

    probably dumb question but couldnt an airpost still be useful for helicopters even if runways are damaged?

      How many tanks can you fit in your helicopter anon?

        Not even tanks. Compare the capacity of an IL-76 with helicopters: a Mi-8 helicopter can carry about 20-24 troops while an IL-76 can easily do 5x more troops. Getting personnel in via dozens of helicopters, even with attack helicopters acting as escorts, is very dangerous, hence quite a number of them got fricked over with MANPADs. You'd need to do use like hundreds of helicopters going back and forth to move personnel to try and replace a runway getting IL-76s landing with stuff.

    I think what's particularly repugnant about this guy is that he's a coward. When Russia started crumbling in Kharkiv in the fall of 2022 he went offline and said "akshually I'm not interested in dispensing my commentary anymore I have other things to do". Then when Russia went back on the offensive in Bakhmut he reactivated his account.

        Aren't BMDs extinct nowadays? People might as well forget their existence entirely.

    jesus christ, it's been two years and you /k/opers still believe ukrainian version of events? vdv took the airport with almost no resistance, they were there, sporadically mortared by ukrainians, until they connected with main russian forces. there are hours of vide footage confirming all this, including a cnn broadcast, while all the talk about repelling them and shit comes from interviews with a couple of literally who ukrainian soldiers. you're laughable.

        Still kind of strange to see that happening on a somewhat modern looking European street.
        Usually we only see corpses and wrecked Soviet hardware littering the streets in some African shithole or the sandbox.

    Specifically Nolan, the guy who's constantly criticized for "not having enough women or romance" in his films?
