I think it was the right decision to defend Bakhmut. Ukraine can really only conduct the counteroffensive with western equipment and it managed to weaken Russian offensive capabilities in the east by attriting its forces, as well as destabilize Russia by limiting its success – hence sowing discontent, empowering mercenary groups and dividing society with the coup attempt

Max Beckhaus

Defending is always the best option in a war of attrition if the opponent is so nice to attack. The story of the senseless defense of bakhmut was always a clown troll story. We can see now how difficult it is to attack and take back that land.

Werrel

Interessant! )

Max Beckhaus

Interesting conclusion from the Wagner mutiny.
Cornered between ugly fighting in Moscow and public humilation he chose the later and more rational way. That Putin would use nuclear weapons irrationally when faced with the humilation of defeat in Ukraine seems of the table.

Has this counteroffensive started?

Max Beckhaus

Clown questions in support of a failed State full of murderers and criminals. Opposite to Russia, Ukraine is not willing to throw away it’s people senselessly. Right now it is a destruction derby of artillery and sooner or later that will translate in ground taken. Yes, it started and it hasn’t ended.

Antonio

Don’t feed the tom.

Haha, another 500 million dollars for Ukraine from the US, yeah western support is waning so much, it is so weak and so uncapable…

The west will never stop supporting Ukraine: no peace for Russia until all the stolen land gets returned.

… and Putin can’t even complain. Because he also financed Wagner.

Max Beckhaus

Yes, until victory it is. Even more promising are all those long term commitments coming in.

Today, a photograph appeared de russians just swipe the left bank of the Antonivsky bridge for artillery and maybe with mortars. It looks like they just want to destroy the Ukrainian military from the left bank, but they don’t wonder if the bridgehead will be expanded until it’s unreasonable.

Gordon

Most likely, the bridgehead was occupied by up to 50 people, they dug in under the bridge itself and are in a cottage town near the Antonivskyi bridge, russian planes are razing cottages to the ground bomb fab 500

Colin

They also appear to have air defence and EW setup on the right bank. So no Ruzzian drones or choppers or close support fighter jets.

Colin

They can shelter from artillery under the actual bridge.

according different article in the Press , people speak about Wagner 4 milliard Roubles ! it’s a joke according actual change: not more that 42 Mio. EUR! mean just the min reserve for 1 bataillon in operation for 3 weeks!

Kay

what is the difference between the blue and yellow armbands of the Ukrainian Armed Forces?

dolgan

Max Beckhaus

Just because they’re at war it doesn’t mean fashion is less important

Different fronts I think

sry guys for still going with the late circus but this is lovely: [ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8tyn9Xr-68 ]. poor sad clowns.

dirgela

They all look terrified after seeing how helpless all the Putin’s security apparatus could be 🙂

Kay

It is important to mention, however, that more and more former war supporters and propagandists doubt the war and describe it as a mistake. Putin’s house of cards collapses…

Roffe

Well, they obviously want results.. What has Putin actually achieved with Ukraine except a bunch of transparent lies about how great the invasion is going while making their mobster nation look weak. I think the only thing that’s keeping Putin in power is the fact that no one is crazy enough to take over and have to inherit the whole mess.
