For information, 14 settlements have changed hands since the launch of the c-offensive, of which 12 were captured by Ukraine (9 in June, 1 in July, 2 in August) and 2 by Russia (1 in July and 1 in August).

Triglav

Again another day of significant Russian losses south of Bahmut, looks like the Ukrainians will soon capture all of Kliščijivka and Andrijivka

Triglav

Seems like the Russo-Ukrainian war is turning into a war of drones – where both sides use small to mid-sized drones to attack each other, making any large-scale attack tough. Both sides are also increasing drone production

Patrick

I get a sense the Ukrainians have more drones. Not sure the Russians can catch up.

Max Beckhaus

The Russians did have an advantage concerning long range drones, sheds, for a while, but it seems Ukraine is catching up. Tactically it is anyone’s guess. Concerning commercial aka Chinese drones, I don’t see how Russia should have a disadvantage. But concerning tactical non commercial one should think western tech should have the edge.

Max Beckhaus

Battlefield awareness is on a whole new level I guess, but that also plays into the attackers hands. I actually think that both sides are all in all to equally matched for one side to have a advantage big enough to make big advances. Meaning, I don’t think the 3 to 1 rule has changed much. Attacking was always difficult.

Kay

This is the first war where both sides rely on drones. In the previous wars (Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan …), only one side had always used drones for tactical attacks and upfall. Until the UKR war, drones were only used as support for conventional means. The warfare with drones in UKR is new to everyone and you have to adapt to the future circumstances what will take beyond the war.

Kay

Therefore, it is currently a balanced situation where none of the pages can pull their advantages out of it. Because of the lack of experience from other wars.

I would say that the Ukrainian army is currently the most experienced drone army in the world. The Americans and Europeans have to learn from this to make their drones better.

Triglav

You’re right, I’m just worried that China is learning faster than all of us. Taiwan will be another Ukraine soon

Tristan

If China tries to invade Taiwan, it means they are learning nothing from the current war in Ukraine.

Think about it: Ukraine, with no navy, is able to threaten the Russian navy hundreds of kilometers away. The Chinese Navy won’t do better and they simply can’t supply an invasion force to Taiwan.

Kay

However, they can trigger a global trade war by blocking access to the East and South China Seas.

Pikująca Szozda

Xi is not nearly crazy enough to try that.

Pikująca Szozda

Russia and Ukraine share a 1000-km land border with very few natural obstacles. The Russians were able to just drive across the border – and they still got stuck. Now, compare that with trying to conquer an island.

Zhorik Vartanov

First combat loss of Challenger 2

Max Beckhaus

Ah small price for breaching the suvokin line.

Zhorik Vartanov

Max, your relentless optimism is – as always – invigorating

Max Beckhaus

If you accept the context of the war as a given, which is hard but without alternative, I do not see a reason not to be optimistic. Degrading Russia in 22 to a point where Ukraine is undoubtedly the stronger force in Ukraine in 23 and very, very likely in 24, is a huge feat. I never was very optimistic about the length of this war. Ain’t that easy as I hoped, but this is… Read more »

Max Beckhaus

To put it differently, if you would have asked me if I take this reality on the 24.2.22 I would have said yes, yes and yes.

Lev Vuksin

13th Jaeger and 129th TD were apparently in Sumy on the 22nd and 23rd for a swimming championship then on the 26th they participated in run for the heroes. I don’t know where they’ll be but I’d say the 13th is finally about to join the fight.

Lockheed announced successful testing of extended range missiles compatible with the HIMARS. Up to 150 km. Hopefully they make their way to Ukraine now so we can some of that Lockheed Love downrange to Russia. If mass produced, could be a real game changer on the frontlines. Ukraine needs time or reach to penetrate those minefields and suppress counter battery fire.

san4es

The Ukrainian Defence Ministry has reduced the list of categories of persons with limited fitness for military service. On the verge of total mobilisation

Tristan

Russians send mentally ill people to the frontline. So how shall we call their mobilization? Partial? Total? I call it desperate.

Tristan

If you want it to be over, don’t ask Zelensky to go. Ask Putin.

He is the agressor. He is the war criminal. He is the one who is destroying his country in a useless war. Russia can stop it right now, they just have to leave Ukraine.

Always remember: if Ukraine stops fighting, there is no Ukraine. If Russia stops fighting, there is no war.

Zhorik Vartanov

Oh yes. Or maybe, just maybe, if Ukraine stops fighting it’ll still exist, but will lose territories de jure and will never join NATO. But sure, the latter is too horrible to even consider.
If all aggressors were guaranteed to be punished, I am sure it’d be very nice but very different world from the one we are living in. Well, easy to talk about such things from the arm chair, isn’t it

Tristan

What you propose is not peace, but time for Russia to re-arm and invide again Ukraine in a few years.

Because, if Ukraine loses territories and don’t join NATO, it will only encourage Russians to do more. They won’t stop, so they must be stopped. Now.

tom

heh, in 1943 hitler started secretly to do the same with Aliants and wanted to have truce with Brits. Luckly this never happened and finally his end was as everyone knows. putin must end same with bullet in his head. you cant negotiate with murders, rapicists, no negotiations with evil.

Beowulf

This can stop only russians. The condition is known – just return army home. If Zelensky gives up – Ukraine will stop existing. And next will be Poland with mobilized ukranians in russian army.

Triglav

Nope, I’m for the continuation of this war, no country can just annex the land of another country – Russia needs to sustain continued casualties until it retreats from Ukraine. If it doesn’t, well then just more Russians will die. All Ukraine really needs is proper support from NATO and new and better weapons will keep coming. Also the Ukrainian drone program is getting better and better.

Triglav

You fail to realise that Ukraine is a new Israel. Yeah sure Zelensky and Sluha Narodu can go, they’re just politicians, but do you think other political parties are just going to give up historical Ukrainian land?

san4es

Zelensky just changed all the military commissars. Probably because the losses are small and everyone wants to serve in the AFU

Tristan

Zelensky just changed all the military commissars because there was evidence of massive corruption.

Concerning the Ukrainians and Russian losses, see:
https://militaryland.net/forum/postid/491/

san4es

Massive corruption? Corruption must have arisen due to the fact that everyone wants to serve in the AFU? And why was it necessary to reduce the number of people with deferments from conscription? Because the losses are so small?

Tristan

Corruption is present in Ukraine since the soviet union. It hasn’t “arisen” because of the war, it was there before. And Ukrainians try to end it, unlike Russians.

Concerning the motivation, more than 90% of Ukrainans support the war, so while there are some people who want to avoid conscription, it is a minority.

And concerning the losses, I gave you the numbers. Deal with it.

san4es

About casualty figures and support for the war: why then tighten mobilisation if everything is so fine?

Tristan

There are casualties on both sides.

Ukraine needs about 10 000 men/month just to compensate the losses (killed/injured).

Russia needs about 25 000 men/month.

So both are expanding their mobilization efforts.

san4es

That’s a beautiful piece of math work! Now add to that the number of people mobilized on both sides. And maybe we’ll get a more complete picture

Noelle

please select a pound of two of your own flesh and make a sacrifice for the Allmighty God Imperator yourself. Maybe this will satisfy his hunger.
Go ahead. Everything for a peace.

tom

Uhu I see that russians trolls got new orders and change propaganda for negotiations. Very good sign that rus are loosing, unfortunattely not fast as desired but slowly they are using. in fact putler and rusciast already lost this war. In fact Im pitty for others russians because for decades they will be most hated nation in europe which wont be easy to change.

INEXORABLE

Jerome please remove this fake account, pro russian deception tactics on the website are useless…none of these comments affect the ongoing events on the real battlefront please Stop It ( nice user name )

tom

or maybe this russian troll will hear some truth here 🙂 ?

Noelle

country is in total mobilisation mode since 22 Feb. So… what is your point? That there are significant losess? That volunteers, enthusiasts of 1st day etc. and similiar groups are spent and after more than a year it’s time to call next wave (especially these who tried to avoid fight as long as possible – a human reflex, not necessarily ‘cowardness’)?
I mean… maybe wake up?

san4es

If total mobilisation, why have so many people gone abroad? And, by the way, would you mind showing me a document on general mobilisation in Ukraine?

Lev Vuksin

I understand control of Marinka means very little but why has nobody else reported its over you’d think the Rus would be beating there chests about this nothing on South front even.

Tristan

It’s not over yet. Jerome says it will be over soon. Expect Russians to brag when it happens.

dolgan

Wait and see. some (generaly true) source say the opposite.

Lots of rumor. strong fog of war.

Triglav

It’s a sad development

dolgan

what? The fact that russia lose so many troops during more than one year for nothing in marinka?

The capture of marinka will not open more doors for russia than Pisky.

tom

loses are on both sides. for rus loosing troops does not matter, for them life does not matter. from their perspective each square foot forward is winning. they can sell it inside fairly easy as winning of the war: “look dear stupid society,there are some place where we move forward so War is going great”

dolgan

For ukrain , russian loose of troops is important.

Reality didnt take care about russian propaganda.

Kay

However, the attacker has more and more casualties. And the Ukrainians retreat when they see it’s time to leave the defense.

The Russians will be shot by their own people if they retreat. That’s the difference…
