Kinzhal downed, all drones and cruise missiles on kiev downed, impressive. The sky above Ukraine is closing. That is very good news for Ukraine.

Tanks on the may 9th parade in moscow: 1 T-34
Planes: 0
The mighty Russia…

Tristan

and only cadets marching.

This parade screams “massive Russian losses in Ukraine”.

dolgan

What they do to honor the wounded and killed in this War?

Triglav

Yeah this parade and Putin’s speech were very underwhelming. Pro-Russian and BRICS news outlets are also oddly reserved about this parade compared to the one last year. Looks like Putin is more and more Putout

Tristan
dolgan

And where are the others t34? Not on the front. They dont find drivers ? Or they canibalize them to repair other material ?

They have many t34 just for this day.

Max Beckhaus

May be they send one to every city that did hold a parade?

Jeff

What I don’t understand is if we all know Wagner is a small part of the order of battle, why does the deployment map label every unit in Bakhmut as “Wagner”. It’s not true and it’s been verified. Deep State’s map shows Wagner as mostly northeast of Bakhmut.

Tristan

The Russian order of batte is a mess, and the Ukrainian one around Bakhmut is not much better. It’s hard to know which Russian units are fighting in Bakhmut. Same thing for the Ukrainian units (except for the 93rd brigade, which is in Bakhmut, but maybe not the whole brigade)

Personnally, I don’t think too much about unit symbols on the Bakhmut maps.

Pikująca Szozda

Prigozhin is angling to take Putin’s job. Unfortunately, he’s unaware of the bald/hairy rule that Russia has been strictly following for the past 200 years. Leaders with a full head of hair always alternate with bald leaders, you can’t have two bald ones in a row.

Volga

Hahahaha that is a good one!

Kay

Prigoshin blames Putin for the many Wagner deaths. Prigozhin is good at always blaming others. It is he who, through his obsession with Bachmuth, is responsible for the many Wagner victims. It’s him who burns his PCM, he’s got these people’s blood on his hands.
If you look at the whole thing more closely, you might even think that Wagner is not at all effective in a war…

Kay

You’ve been fighting for the small town of Bachmuth for months. In contrast, the regular Russian troops took over almost the entire south of Ukraine within a very short time (half a year). In my opinion, where Wagner wasn’t involved so intensively, the Russians made quicker progress.
Prigozhin is a good-for-nothing who should have been a cook or stayed in jail…

Kay

He bears great responsibility for making Russia look so inept and so bad in this war. Wagner is nothing more than a stupid bunch of idiots who have no idea about offensive warfare. No army in the world needs prisoners to carry out attacks just because their regular soldiers are afraid of death. I just wonder when Putin will finally understand that.

dolgan

Wagner have no responsability in Kiev or vulhedar offensives. No need Wagner to explain situation.

Kay

Kiev cannot be compared… This mission had already failed at the planning stage. My overall concern is the way tactics are used in the battles. In that sense, the Wagner can do nothing and their superiors have no idea about leadership.

Wagner is a bunch of sadistic animals

Djdjsj

He’s also wrapped up in the drama surrounding the Battle of Khasham in Syria in 2018. Later investigations suggest Wagner wasn’t fighting but still took losses in a pro-government attack on a joint SDF/American outpost. It caused quite a political stir in Russia, I’m honestly surprised Prigozhin wasn’t assassinated or at least imprisoned then.

Kay

That’s right… No Americans were killed in this attack, but over 100 Wagner were killed. Wagner’s actions were disastrous in this battle, which had also caused much criticism in Russia.

In most African countries where the PMC is present, the situation is worsening more than it is improving it. However, one hears more and more about massacres of the Russians against the natives.

Djdjsj

While an objective narrative of the battle is difficult to come by, it is believed that the vast majority of the fighters were from a specific division of the Syrian military. While they had a small number of mercenenaries, there weren’t many Russian Wagnerites present. According to some of the American fighters, the Russians didn’t fight but were caught in some of the artillery and air strikes.

Kay

You don’t know exactly how many of them were present. But there were actually more than expected. It is now also confirmed that this attack was Wagner’s heaviest loss outside of the Ukraine.
Apart from that, Wagner has a high level of indiscipline among her soldiers, which in turn is the reason for an extreme lack of leadership.
Wagner is a bunch of mismatched sociopaths.

Djdjsj

I don’t know how many of any of the combatants for either side there were. The sources differ quite widely. Probably the most sober piece on this battle is the report from Der Spiegel. Their conclusion is Wagner was present in small numbers and took some losses in the strikes but anti-Prigozhin voices (possibly Igor Girkin) in Russia started the rumor that Wagner took hundreds of losses.

RED.Misfit

They will probably announce on Tuesday that they conquered Bakhmut even if 10% of the city remains under Ukrainian control.
There is almost no doubt that the City will fall in the week(s) to come, unless the counter-offensive is passing around there.

Gordon

No one knows this. The main thing is that the bastards don’t take this city on May 9, I don’t want them to have a reason to be proud and another symbolic date

dolgan

Each monday, bakmut will fall in the week.

Just wait and see what happens.

Triglav

On point

Volga

True, the talk for the fall of Bahmut has been going from about September I think.

RED.Misfit

I didn’t say in the week, i say it will fall in the WEEK(S) (with a plural option), you know perfectly unless the the counter-offensive is moving that way, it is only a matter of time. Yes it took them long to get there, but face the truth, the city is now mostly under russian control and bit by bit it is taken by russia/wagner. You just have to watch militaryland map history of Bakhmut… Read more »
