    their modernization effort was a flop, important parts were reversed
    after crimea they could not buy western electronics and optics. their defence industry was expecting to use that and so had not invested to develop their own. not they could anyway but now they had no fallback.
    then they decided to larp as a duginese neosoviet liberators and ruined their aesthetic

    It was a more elite force rather than the entire army. for example the initial fight around Kiev was a pretty competent force, however the plan was just poorly thought out. For example had they not sent their air brigades on a mad dash to be encircled by thousands of partisans they would have looked more elite. That's really the biggest problem they lost.... a lot of well trained guys on a poorly thought of plan that for all intents and purpose just sent them to be slaughtered like at Sumy just having them advance without sufficient recon plans thought and same the Chernihiv.

        You don't question orders you're given, especially in the Russian army where things like hazing is very much a thing. You tell your general that he's wrong you're getting your ass beat, you tell Putin he's stupid and you're dead.

        [...]

        Which also shows how GOOD Ukraine's military had become. They could best the best Russia could throw them.

        If anything, Ukraine is evolving into a horrifying beast of a military.

        True, the Ukraine force was never estimated to be bad, I know when I was in the overall estimate was that Ukraine was hte only army in Europe that took their training seriously.

        [...]
        got any pics pr other videos about these good troops?

        Look at hostomel airport, you can see the troops setting up perimeter while also keeping distance and formation so they can successfully shoot move and communicate to their point of contact. They captured the airport as well so they succeeded in their objective, they also maintained said objective until they were vastly outnumbered. I don't like Russia but the fact they were able to do so to a competent military force as we now know is a testament that these were very good soldiers that were sent to be slaughtered. Same thing with the units around Chernihiv, Sumy, and the initial force around Kharkiv

          I had some trouble parsing how the Russians could be so incompetent. I always knew they were, but the depth of the incompetence was a bit much. I was starting to think that it really was a feint or that the convoy was made up of a lot of inflatable decoys... But no, Russians are just shit. There was no deception or guile in them. They didn't plan this out. They're just shit.

                The diplomats were giving prepared speeches so there wasn't much immediate reaction from them. I was fucking stunned, though, that Putin did exactly what the UN was literally at that very second warning him not to do. I think the best thing about it is when Kyslytsya started shitting on the Russians at the end of the meeting off script, which I think most people have seen clips of by now.

                We have a TV in the kitchenette in our barracks, has the news on every morning. The news had been about this build up of troops and the "russian exercises" for weeks at this stage, with these intelligence 'experts' on ever morning spouting off about this or that and hows its coming very soon etc. and I full on believe they were full of shit. I was 99% sure nothing would happen. Even when I was just chatting to the guys about it over coffee, they were all of the opinion they would invade, I was full on "nah lads its all just posturing to make NATO look like panicky retards and make people doubt how good nato really is" kinda stuff, which i still think was a pretty good take at the time, fite me

                Walked in for my morning coffee the next day and seen like 10 guys all glued to the TV in the tea room and my buddy just starts smiling at me saying "ya see the news" and I realised, oh shit son, the lunatic actually went balls out and did it, then got a good slagging for being totally fucking wrong lmao. Full on could not believe it, and went straight on PrepHole to see the shitstorm.

                Atleast i kinda got the last laugh cause they all thought russia would hammer them, while i always felt they lied about their military for it to actually be capable of getting it done, and i have a deep hatred of vatnik shills for years now cause of all the s400 and s300 t14 wunderwaffe spam since like 2013. Never, ever did i think it would be this bad though, not in a million years, still cant get over it. Pic unrelated.

              Well, that and they believed the military would cuck out, they'd be able to capture/kill/force Zelenskyy to flee, and they believed that once they captured Kyiv and set up a puppet government everyone would stay out of it (in which case Ukraine really probably would have lost, albeit slowly).

              Their plan centered around crushing hope itself. They failed. And now the shoe's on the other foot.

    It's the same army, OP. During Crimea they just caught the Ukrainians with their pants down, drove into towns and squares and said "here we are, this is russia now", there was barely any fighting to prove their combat readiness. Ukrainians learned. Their troops got proper equipment and training from NATO allied countries in the past 7 years and this is the result. Russians can cry all they want about foreign merc presence in Ukraine and western arms, they should however be thankful not being in direct warfare with NATO, otherwise they'd be in a much worse position.

        The VDV took homostel airport without a problem.
        Past that, they never even fell back from the airfield, as Ukraine never launched any massive counterattacks onto the airfield. They held for 3 days until the main force arrived according to participants of the operation.
        The VDV did their job fine, the rest of Russia's armed forces failed to adequately push and hold territory.

They kept reinforcing that airfield for almost a month until they finally realised that they ran out of VDV.

    Nothing happened to it. Well, the USSR fell which did kick out economic, industrial and political underpinnings which could make it useful in a limited war scenario (ie, Afghanistan).

    What it boils down to is low-quality human resources. Most of their army is manned by minority peasants. These are dumb and lazy people. Not going to bother sugar-coating it. That has some benefits though: you don't have to pay them much and they can be abused and killed off and the majority Russian demographic won't care at all. But there's HUGE downsides, the most important is corruption. Because the men are stupid and lazy with no motivation their officers don't care and know they can't accomplish anything anyway so they might as well just steal. Up the chain it goes until the entire system is corrupt and barely useful.

    This has two CRUCIAL effects:
    1. Zero morale. I shouldn't have to explain why that's disastrous.
    2. False information. Corrupt officers all the way up the chain of command falsify reports to hide their own corruption. This results in the leadership making war plans based on fake data. THIS is the reason why Russia launched an operation it couldn't even supply to complete a MARCH across the country, forget fighting once they get there. That is the result of corruption destroying their ability to even PLAN a successful operation.

        >operation storm
        Operation Storm (Serbo-Croatian: Operacija Oluja / Oпepaцијa Oлyјa) was the last major battle of the Croatian War of Independence and a major factor in the outcome of the Bosnian War. It was a decisive victory for the Croatian Army (HV), which attacked across a 630-kilometre (390 mi) front against the self-declared proto-state Republic of Serbian Krajina (RSK), and a strategic victory for the Army of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (ARBiH). The HV was supported by the Croatian special police advancing from the Velebit Mountain, and the ARBiH located in the Bihać pocket, in the Army of the Republic of Serbian Krajina's (ARSK) rear. The battle, launched to restore Croatian control of 10,400 square kilometres (4,000 square miles) of territory, representing 18.4% of the territory it claimed, and Bosniak control of Western Bosnia, was the largest European land battle since the Second World War. Operation Storm commenced at dawn on 4 August 1995 and was declared complete on the evening of 7 August, despite significant mopping-up operations against pockets of resistance lasting until 14 August.

        Vukovar was defended by around 1,800 lightly armed soldiers of the Croatian National Guard (ZNG) and civilian volunteers, against as many as 36,000 JNA soldiers and Serb paramilitaries equipped with heavy armour and artillery. During the battle, shells and rockets were fired into the town at a rate of up to 12,000 a day. At the time, it was the fiercest and most protracted battle seen in Europe since 1945, and Vukovar was the first major European town to be entirely destroyed since the Second World War.

        Unironically the the same mentality from the Soviet days. Even with a genocidal regime forcing them to fight, they were more than willing to die bleeding the other regime that very publicly talked about ethnically cleansing their lands.

It brought about the human rights report on rape and organ harvesting from suicides in the Russian military. The once powerful Russian mothers committees that mattered a lot once got shut down too, the trail end of the them was swept up in 2014 when they started asking where their kids graves were and why their sons were actually being forced to go to Ukraine.

            That’s what monke does in the picture with a lollipop, he ridicules the rape victim, implies that he is a petykh now who sucks dicks on a regular basis.

              Alexander Litvinenko accused Vladimir Putin of being a paedophile four months before he was poisoned
              Mr Litvinenko wrote an article making the accusations four months before he was poisoned

              Alexander Litvinenko claimed that Vladimir Putin had been caught on camera having sex with young boys, according to the inquiry into the spy's murder.

              When the future Russian president was a student, he was filmed abusing children in a flat where another top politician had a threesome with prostitutes, Litvinenko wrote in a sensational web post.

              The wild claim is recorded in Sir Robert Owen's inquiry report as part of a long list of allegations made by the assassinated spy against Mr Putin after he fled Russia and settled in Britain.Litvinenko made the accusation after the president was pictured kissing the stomach of a five-year-old boy during a walkabout in the Kremlin in June 2006.

He said Putin had been denied a place in the foreign intelligence division as a young recruit “because, shortly before his graduation, his bosses learned that Putin was a pedophile.”

                “Many years later, when Putin became the FSB director and was preparing for the presidency, he began to seek and destroy any compromising materials,” Litvinenko wrote. “Among other things, Putin found videotapes in the FSB Internal Security directorate, which showed him making sex with some underage boys.”

                July 2006 – A few days ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin walked from the Big Kremlin Palace to his Residence. At one of the Kremlin squares, the president stopped to chat with the tourists. Among them was a boy aged 4 or 5. What is your name?’ Putin asked. ‘Nikita,’ the boy replied. Putin kneeled, lifted the boy’s T-shirt and kissed his stomach. The world public is shocked. Nobody can understand why the Russian president did such a strange thing as kissing the stomach of an unfamiliar small boy. The explanation may be found if we look carefully at the so-called “blank spots” in Putin’s biography.

                After graduating from the Andropov Institute, which prepares officers for the KGB intelligence service, Putin was not accepted into the foreign intelligence. Instead, he was sent to a junior position in KGB Leningrad Directorate. This was a very unusual twist for a career of an Andropov Institute’s graduate with fluent German. Why did that happen with Putin? Because, shortly before his graduation, his bosses learned that Putin was a pedophile. So say some people who knew Putin as a student at the Institute.

                The Institute officials feared to report this to their own superiors, which would cause an unpleasant investigation. They decided it was easier just to avoid sending Putin abroad under some pretext. Such a solution is not unusual for the secret services. Many years later, when Putin became the FSB director and was preparing for presidency, he began to seek and destroy any compromising materials collected against him by the secret services over earlier years. It was not difficult, provided he himself was the FSB director. Among other things, Putin found videotapes in the FSB Internal Security Directorate, which showed him making sex with some underage boys. Interestingly, the video was recorded in the same conspiratorial flat in Polyanka Street in Moscow where Russian Prosecutor-General Yuri Skuratov was secretly video-taped with two prostitutes. Later, in the famous scandal, Putin (on Roman Abramovich’s instructions) blackmailed Skuratov with these tapes and tried to persuade the Prosecutor-General to resign. In that conversation, Putin mentioned to Skuratov that he himself was also secretly video-taped making sex at the same bed. (But of course, he did not tell it was pedophilia rather than normal sex. Later, Skuratov wrote about this in his book Variant Drakona (p.p. 153-154).

    I remember an article about this one civilian/oligarch guy claiming that he was responsible for modernizing the military and seeking contracts for gear that weren't just plain money laundering but he made enemies with the military circles next to Putin because of trying to implement actual changes and he got replaced by a yes-man who dismantled the changes.
    Wish that I could find it. Might have even been a string of tw*tter posts.

    Also, the Ukraine army in 2014 was an unironic joke worse than the Russian one.

      People don;t have persepective, once before Putin ruined the place Russia was on the verge of joining NATO and the EU and reforming itself. It was buying body armour and infantry loadouts and optics from France who it was paying to design complete soldier systems for it (RATNIK) and placing orders for Mistral class amphibious warships to be built in France. Russia was once a NATO partner and conducting joint exercises. Russia would have starved if it was not for EU food aid 1991-93. When Russia went into Ukraine in 2014 it was so insane, so deranged and they lied so bare faced about 'little green men' the EU and USA just sat there going 'what the fuck' not because it was 'brilliant' but because it was fucking insane.

        Putin had a lot of respect for leaders like Chirac back then, much less for Sarkozy/Merkel/Obama. I read somewhere that the turning point for him was the war in Libya and seeing Gaddafi getting killed like a dog with the help of Western powers. He became paranoid and was sure that the West would do the same to him.

          Bullshit. He was worried that he'd get caught and wind up in prison for murder or fraud if Russia reformed. Gadhafi was behind everything form blowing up German nightclubs to sending semtex to the pira and got what he fucking deserved. He was a cocaine addict that use cruise around Libyan schools and pick out little girls to molest. No wonder Libyans rammed a bayonet up his arse. Putin liked to hang out with equally corrupt fucks like Berlusconi and fuck teenagers and he liked the boys as much as the girls. I heard they only feel out because one of the kids Berlusconi shared with him turned up HIV positive and Putin freaked the fuck out for a week over it until he tested negative. Putin could never accept that other politicians and nations were not a bunch of corrupt stacks of lies like Russia he always thought everyone was running around making backroom deals and he was being left out. He never really managed to understand rule of law at all.

            Having actually spend some time in Libya under Gaddafi I can confirm he was a crazy evil dictator. I don't understand how nowadays he's painted as some anti-imperialist hero by edgy contrarians. Especially this strange obsession with the Gold Dinar, which was never going to happen. Just another unrealistic idea (like Trump's wall) floated by a crazy dictator. Do people really think he was on the brink of introducing this Pan-African golden currency and destroy the dollar's global hegemony?

            Nobody is disputing he was evil, the argument is if libya was better off without him. The answer of course being NO.

          He wigged out because the Araba spring was about to get rid of Assad and Russia's naval base in Tartus. However he had already placed orders for the two Mistrals from France to attack Ukraine at that point so his plans for this war were already in place that long ago.A deal for two ships for the Russian Navy was announced by then French President Nicolas Sarkozy on 24 December 2010, and signed on 25 January 2011. Fell through in 2015 but they were staggeringly close to delivery and I have no doubt ordered for control of the Ukrainian coast

        There was some hope of cooperation but even during Yeltsin days the west was at odds with Russian in cases such as leveling Grozny in Chechnya. People were questioning if Russia was truly moving away from autocracy then.

    That’s because Crimea wasn’t a war. A whopping 5 people died during that entire event, and IIRC 4 of them were criminals killing other criminals. The only thing that has changed this time is that it’s an actual war this time, even though it’s a weak one, and the propaganda being used so normies think Ukraine is far more competent than they actually are.
