Jerome, Tristan addresses me saying “you know nothing”. Isn’t that a personal attack? You deleted my response, in which I gently trolled him, while you didn’t delete the post that triggered my reply. I’d appreciate a consistent approach from your end. Thank you.


You pretend that Sholtz and Macron “are praying for the US to turn off the faucet”. But in fact, you don’t know Scholtz and Macron’s intention (and there are plenty of evidence that you are wrong about Macron and Scholtz’s goals). I won’t say more to respect Jerome’s intention. Have a good day.


This is a forum where we exchange comments and opinions. My view is that Macron and Sholtz would gladly use the pretext of the US theoretically stopping the delivery of arms to Ukraine to do the same. This is my view. If you can’t accept it, at least refrain from personal attacks.

400 days, 170k troops lost, economy in a big shit and absolutely no gains comparing to day 10. Perfect summary of a 3 day special military operation.


b-b-but the Spirit of The Greater Russia has grown! right?
*actually according to the official R stats (take or leave ofc) consumption of vodka increased, indeed.


It’s snowing heavily in Bakhmut


Just to mention: fullmap is missing.


Thanks for the Summarys. 400 Days of war or rather 9 years of war.Its just so sad. I mean, i am amazed by the bravery of the ukrainian defenders, but every life lost is a tragedy.
Bakhmut Front: “Ukrainian soldiers of 3rd Assault Brigade targeted a Russian vehicle “west” of Bila Hora.”
Shouldn’t that be east of Bila Hora?

Can anybody give me an actual reference to Putin or whomever saying anything about a three day ooeration other than a CNN announcer’s speculation. I don’t watch MSM, but I read all of Putin’s speeches. People who read Putin’s objectives for SMO shouldn’t be suprised about the current status, especially considering the massive NATO mobilization.


He never Say that of course.

“3 days War” IS an expression to insist on the level of unprepared russia for a war. They really trust in a short campaign without heavy battle.


Putin never said that. But his propacondoms did a lot. Even Lukashenko said it.
Actually, it does not matter what he said and what not. We can assume he thought that because of his actions and how his army planned to do it. Yes, we have captured planes. They wanted to capture Kyiv in first 8 hours

Taymyr 74

In Russian society and the blogosphere, even a few years before the war, there were expressions like “Ukraine in a week”, etc.
For example, the russian propagandist Simonyan – “In a hot war we will defeat Ukraine in 2 days”:


There’s no NATO mobilization.


Nato hasn’t sent a large number of troops in, but have shifted their economies and have mobalized their militaries and industries to supply weapons, equipment, and people to support the military effort of Ukraine.


All russian propaganda media said that Ukrain will fall in one week at least …. so it is the same… as saying it is a special operation not a war


randy is right
Russians never wanted to control Ukraine,
They didn’t even want to go there, they just lost during the exercise.
And they just reciprocate the fire.
That’s why they will move slowly back , but that’s okay, it’s according to plan.
later we may learn that the Russians never was in Ukraine :))))


massive NATO mobilization ????? do you know how big NATO’s army if?? you are really funny :D:D


Randy do you have some proof about NATO army mobilization on Ukrajine  ?


400 days. I remember:
Day 100 when we were saying “the 3 days operation lasted 3 months”
Day 200 when Ukraine did its clever offensives
Day 300 when it was christmas time

Day 400 is when we expect that western equipment will make the difference on the battlefield. Slava Ukraine !

Max Beckhaus

Herojam slava!
It is important to note, that this started in 2014. So we are at 9 years, and it will probably go on till Putin dies, or is not president anymore, at least. I do not see grounds for even a cease fire in any foreseeable future.


Or until the United States decides it should stop.


yes for the spout of financial and military aid that enters the Ukraine, but not only the United States but also Europe


The Europeans are followers, not leaders, so it really only boils down to the United States.

Max Beckhaus

Poland, the balts, etc. are the vanguard, not the US. In fact, i am very confident, that europe will continue supporting Ukraine, even if the US will not support anyore. So no, that is wrong. The US would also have to stop selling weapons to europe… Tell me how likly that is, under any admistration!?

Max Beckhaus

The US is pretty much like Germany, just bigger, more militaristic, with certainly a lot more capabilities, but also pretty hesitant and fearful of escalation.

Food for though

Could Poland announce every few months 1 billion of military aid for Ukraine? I doubt it. Do you think that the Germans prefer to buy 4 times the price of gas from the USA instead of Russia? What a relief for them if the war ends. Do you think that the rest of the European governments want to see the cost of living rising like that, undermining their economies and societies? They just follow USA.

Max Beckhaus

Which cost of living crisis? Inflations sinks rapidly and gas is as cheap, as it hasn´t been in a long time. Germany can not afford to let eastern and northern Europe down. Europe will support Ukraine for ever, if need be.

Max Beckhaus

And yes, europe can afford those 1 billion easily, it just needs to buy them from the US. And if not, the european military complex would also be easily sufficient to support Ukraine. Europe knows since Trump, that it can not rely on the US anytime, and we won´t need to, concerning Russia. Russia is to weak.

Anyways, Russian military will be so utterly beaten up by 2024, that probably Poland and co. could keep Ukraine aflot alone.


The joke of the year.


You are an optimistic person.


“Europe will support Ukraine for ever, if need be”.

In what parallel reality do you live? Macron and Sholtz are praying for the US to turn off the faucet. Look at recent opinion polls in Germany. Now imagine the US stops supporting Ukraine. What do you think they would look like?


You know nothing, Patrick. Scholtz and Macron may have been fooled by Putin for a while, but now it’s pretty clear what is at stack: peace in Europe. We won’t have peace in Europe if Putin is not stopped. And the only way to stop him is by defeating his army in Ukraine.


Triste Tristan. I know more than you think.


Sure, you “know” a lot of things.
Like when you claimed than only a few thousands mobiks died ?

You also forcasted Wagner would capture Bakhmut late January-early February (day 300)
You called rybar “a serious source” (day 312)
You dismissed oryx as “propaganda” (day 316)

As I said: you know nothing.


Gas price is now lower than before the war, and the price of living has nothing to do with Ukraine.


No more markets in EU for any ruzzian products.


We’re doing fine here apart from a right wing tory government trying to damage our nation
No one is starving or cold as ruzzian TV tells its audience


The UK does ok.
My city makes the atgm and anti aircraft guided missiles the UK is supplying to Ukraine
Plenty of work here for aero engineers


Happy for you.


400 days already. Let’s shoot for 800 (or rather not tbh)


how long the war lasts depends only on when you want to turn off the faucet of the aid of billions that enter every month in Ukraine in financial and military aid

Food for though

It also ends if Russia withdraw the soldiers and the West accepts to demilitarise Ukraine (can have Narional Guard with restrictions), with safety guarantees from both sides, no NATO bases, not to join NATO and obligation to protect the Russian minority at the eastern part. Donbas/Lugansk will remain Ukrainian soil with increased autonomy. You see, Russia removing the troops isn’t the only choice.


That would be restricting to the independence of Ukraine. An independence russia itself recognized in 1991. It’s not about what the West accepts, its about the freedom to choose for Ukraine. Ukraine is not plaything to the big powers. No country should be. Its about being partners on equal terms.


I agree with that vision, who are we to say Ukraine they cannot join NATO or EU ? It is them to choose as a people if they want or not. Neither Russia, EU or US have to choose for them. If they rejected Russia linked government to turn to democracy, is it not their choices ? People didn’t flee to Russia when the war was enforced to them, they flee to European countries akin… Read more »


What would stop russia from trying again later? Safety Guarantees are nice but they need to be backed up. I don’t see the will in the west to go to open war with russia. No one wants that and niether does russia. This is a very bad signal, for all the other conflicts in the world. A throwback to past centuries when wars were just a way of doing politics.


Finland shares a 1300 km long frontier with Russia. Finland is not demilitarized. Finland just joined NATO. What will Russia do ? Nothing. Because NATO is not the problem. Russian imperialism is.

“demilitarize Ukraine” is just bullshit, Ukraine has the right to have an army and to join NATO, so it won’t fear Russia anymore.


Well, the russians always can just go home you know. They started this and they can end it, by leaving again. It’s unlikely, but the option is there nonetheless.
