Re: Breaking!!! Russia launches second LIVE FIRE Military drills on Ukraine border after talk fail!!!
For the first time, since the breakup of Yugoslavia, I think we have a real possibility for a major war.

As the Ukrainians are not being used to calm down, they will persist in their genocide against Russians and press for seizing Crimea. This will definitely lead to war with Russia.

If Russia is forced to actually cross the border, why would they stop in the Donetz basin? It is an irrational idea. Therefore, the Russian Army will be in Kieve in a week. No two ways about it.

The one big question is will any Nato forces be moved into Ukraine/Sea of Azov, or take potshots at Russia from the Baltic States. I'm afraid that the odds are very high that some soy boy or girl will think it smart to engage Russia with Nato.

War has many surprises. However, looking at initial starting forces, reasonable developments can be deduced. Russia can be on the English Channel in a couple of months.

In this case, I wish Russia every success.

Putin is all fucking talk and everyone knows it.
The guys with the big guns don;t talk, THEY ACT.

Putin is trying to bolster his credibility so he can get some better negotiations out of the deal.

Putin can't even keep his own people in check, 75% of whom would cut his throat in a heartbeat given the chance.

just talk to real Russian (not the troll farms) and you will see how they discuss this joker behind his back.

The only reason they don't come out publicly and say it is becasue of Putin's mafia who tracks them down and silences them and their families.

That time is about over though.

You people are so dumb. If Russia was gonna invade it would have already begun. These idle intimidation's only goes to prove that Putin has no intention of invading and is hoping that pressure on the Ukraine will stop its acceptance to Nato. Its pure political satire and has no true Military bearing. If Ukrainian joined Nato, all out ww3 would still have the same outcome, either way. Putin, based on his past actions will do nothing but talk and intimidate. On the slim chance that he does attack , be assured that a full commitment by Putin will mean bad things for many because he will have finally snapped. With all the low moral caused by the big Covid change anything is an option.

Russia's military is 80% conscripts that serve less than few years, including their active service members.

Their navy is a joke and fully admitted that it would take two kilo 2s to even take on a single burke, hence their modernization program.

Their airforce is also a joke. Of their estimated 4500 aircraft less than 400 are modern.

Shitty f35s walked all over s300/400s in syria. Imagine what a f22 could do.

A single 1960s atgm took out a t90 in syria. This actually happened to several models.
