Will the dictatorships Russia has cultivated send units to fight in Ukraine

As opposed to scatterings of individuals. Will we see North Koreans in uniform or whatever shithole pic related is sending actual battalions. Are there any dictatorships of Russia's with advisors in uniform in Ukraine with Russia (in combat, I don't mean Indian 'journalists')

      Of course, they are poison but Russia made a lot of dictatorships and shitholes by installing some 'strongman' and loves near failed gangster states like Venezuela and South Africa
      and North Korea, so are there actually unfomed South African soldiers in as observers with the Russians, or North Koreans? Are there Indian observers in with the Russians since they buy Russian tanks and their media is a Russia asset and the Indian dictator props up Russia by buying its oil?

          >I doubt, if Indian active military personnel die in Ukraine while being on Russian side it would be huge problem for India
          Why India is pretty openly supporting Russia economically and the majority of pro Russian propaganda outlets on sites like YouTube originate in India. its even a running joke here that organised Russian propaganda is outsourced to third world and Indian spammers. Indians also generally seem brainwashed to hate Europeans etc etc (if you ever listen to them). A lot of them seem to be under the impression they are colonising Europe even though they seem a bit stupid and lost in reality and prone to being frauds and scammers. My point is both the government and people of India, South Africa, Venezuela etc are bitterly anti European and Anti American just like shit pits like Iran and India has even licenced small arms manufacture from Russia during teh Ukraine war while buying Russia oil. It amazes me that ANY visas for Indians are issued to Europe or the USA but they are. Anyhow I would not be surprised at all if there are Indians in uniform observing T90 operations etc or in Russian small arms factories for example. Certainly North Koreans and Iranians. Have any Iranians been captured or confirmed pictured in uniform for example on the ground in Ukraine? Will this proceed to some token combat units as the Russian military degrades further?

            There's actually huge leap between economical support India provides(and India buying Russian oil at discount was hugely beneficial for West because it kept oil cheap and Russian revenue lower than they'd have otherwise) and any military support. India hates both West and China while balancing between two sides, risking Western sanctions for anything marginal like observing Russian troops is not worth it, India also started to buy more Western weaponry replacing Russian due to quality issues

              And that should not happen either. Their visa holders in the USA and EU should be deported to, its no goo letting people from places like that where they cheer for people like Putin who want the west destroyed into your nations. The same for China and the other BRICS. They are simply not needed either. Neither are arms exports to India much economic benefit. Better to cultivate places like Argentina or Georgia that are more than anti-western sewers.

Surely rather than sending India conventional weapons or enabling their anti-western culture the focus should be on instigating a nuclear exchange between them?

        No, no country is going to send in actual military personnel. First because Africa is already busy with wars in their own turf and also because getting directly involved like that would mean a lot of legal troubles with the UN

                The Cold War provided a structure. The Cold War also had ideology. The attempt to destroy the U.S. today is not ideological, it's simply a cold-hearted business opportunity masked as a crusade.

                We need new ways of thinking to help wake up to what's going on, because people feel something is off.

                The world is more chaotic today and it's about income streams with a superstructure of nihilism, stupidity and villainy that will fly a dozen different flags even if it looks contradictory... even better because it deceives, disjoints and disrupts boring, normal folks -- keeps them stressed. Add family dictatorships, aging warlords, arms dealers, oily oligarchs, sociopathic greedy billionaires, creepy middlemen and foreign petrofascist nations to the list of chaos agents. They're all the same. buttholes. They create chaos zones to further their self interest. They hire and fund frickerists to murder and destroy infrastructure while seizing assets and resources. This neo-colonialism hires reckless incompetent mercenaries, throws up distractions from problem solving with a vast number of fire-and-forget projects, creates false dilemmas, trades Bitcoin, monetizes YouTube bullshit, charity, food buckets whatever.

                They use cyber ops, propaganda, infiltration, bribery to wreak havoc on public perception and create division. The same military psyop and intel tactics used against terrorists. They use sentiment analysis and predictive behavior to know which angry dimwit buttons to push. These forces are at work all the time at various levels of operational tempos, confident there are no penalties for stealing entire nations or frustrated democracies. Except if they really frick up. And all working towards dismantling structural systems and hoping to profit from it. A divisive nation living in fear is a weaker competitor or enemy.

                Right here right now.

                Moral of the story is they're buttholes.

    I'll never say never, but I think sending troops as actual troops of your own country is a great way of weakening yourself at home, not to mention risking getting sanctioned for direct assisting of the war, so unless Russia has some kind of leverage over you I personally wouldn't do it. Also the logistics of sending full army divisions over would be difficult. Letting individual citizens go to Russia and join the Russian military is about as far as I'd go.

      Have you ever listened to any of the people from Africa or India and how they view Russia and the USA and Europe. They hate the west and view it as being theirs now because Russia told them that teh BRICS and Russia are the future and that Russia will support them as colonists. I have listened to the exact same spiel from Indian 'professional' students, Nigerian criminals and Algerians etc nearly work for word. They also LIVE on Russian spammed mobile social media crap. See Yallah group, its a proxy for RT/Sputnik tier crap and reposts that material within seconds of it appearing on RT. Indians also genuinely believe that they are 'colonising' the UK and Scotland and Ireland. I was talking with a group of four in an airport and listening to them. They have a bizarre mix of pseudo fascist Hindu nonsense telling them that Google and Microsoft are Hindu owned and Russian propaganda streaming o their mobiles 24/7. Why do you think youtube is so fricked up and full of kremlin bullshit? In several European countries a no cookies youtube search for video news will place 10 Indian channels first.

Then a barrage of pro Russian outlets in India depicted the situation as Ukrainian 'racism' and photographed them receiving flowers in Indian airports when they eventually got back to India. It was a very interesting spectacle laid on by the Indian government in a typically deceptive pro Russian propaganda coup. yes Indians should be deported from Europe, of cours ethey should be. Europe does not have sufficiently full employment to justify non EU citizens being given work or entry visas from hostile states like India that purchase Russian oil and co-operate with Russian arms manufacture. Its a huge security issue for individuals with overwhelming connections to communist China or pro Russian India holding ANY senior positions in companies like Google, Amazon or Microsoft which western states governments utilise for information storage and processing, or controlling platforms like youtube while facilitating anti-western pro Russian propaganda.

      Yang Uk, a defence expert at the Asan Institute for Policy Studies in Seoul, said North Korea could have reserves of up to 100 KN-23s, most of which it might transfer to Russia for the right price.

      “Pyongyang needs cash right now more than it needs war, and it can always build a new stockpile,” Yang said. Kyiv’s allies led by the US condemned North Korea’s arms transfers this week. Russian officials have called the allegations US “disinformation”.

      Moscow was also in “actively advancing” talks with Tehran to acquire close-range ballistic missiles, said US national security spokesperson John Kirby.

      Iran has the largest ballistic missile programme in the Middle East and could supply Russia “with a few hundred ballistic missiles” just to start, said Behnam Ben Taleblu, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a US think-tank.

      With its economy on a war footing Russia now makes more than 100 long-range missiles a month, compared with about 40 at the start of invasion, and about 300 attack drones, according to Ukrainian and western officials. That is not enough to sustain the current pace of attacks, which were only possible after Russia stockpiled missiles for months. But Iranian-supplied drones and North Korean missiles make up some of the shortfall.

      “Russia is using whatever it can to wear out Ukraine,” said Gustav Gressel, a former Austrian military officer and now a senior policy fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations think-tank.

    These tanks with these rather unconventional structures were identified as part of the Western Command of the Indian Army, responsible for the border with Pakistan.

    OSINT analysts referred to these attachments as “Cope Cages,” a sarcastic nickname for structures placed around tanks in the hope of providing protection against drones, missiles, or other anti-tank weapons.

    The concept of “Cope Cage” armor involves attaching external frameworks, often resembling cages or grids, to the surface of tanks and other armored vehicles. These structures are designed to serve as an additional layer of defense, offering protection against various threats, including anti-tank guided missiles and, notably, drones.

    The “Cope Cage” solution, while not conventional or factory-fitted armor, has demonstrated its effectiveness as a quick, improvised, and cost-efficient means of enhancing the protection of military assets. This approach exemplifies the adaptability and resourcefulness of military forces in responding to evolving threats in modern warfare.

    Russian military forces have pioneered a unique solution to enhance the protection of their armored vehicles, which has colloquially been referred to as “Cope Cage.” This innovative approach to vehicle protection has now become an integral feature in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, primarily to counter the threat posed by drones.

    The Indian foreign minister, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, did not mention the status of the Indian T-90s in Russia while responding to whether or not there were maintenance concerns with Russian weaponry in India.

    On September 28, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar told reporters during the joint news conference with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken that there have been no issues in recent months regarding the servicing and supply of spare parts for spare parts in recent months military equipment acquired in the past from Russia.
