>Search for a Solution for Syria Intensifies>In recent months, the United States, Israel, Turkey and a number of other countries have attempted to take advantage of Russia’s distraction in a special operation to denazify Ukraine, in order to aggravate the situation in Syria and pursue their own military and strategic objectives in that country.>Thus, the US is trying hard to open a “second front” against Russia in that Middle Eastern country, pushing Israel to intensify airstrikes on civilian Syrian targets, which have recently become a regular occurrence. One of the most recent of these Israeli hostile actions was the bombing by the Israeli Air Force of the outskirts of the Syrian capital on June 10, with missile attacks on the positions of Shiite groups fighting on the side of the government army. The attack knocked out the runway of Damascus International Airport, killing and wounding people, and caused some material damage to the airport structures, disrupting the delivery of UN-sponsored humanitarian aid to millions of Syrians. On June 14, The Jerusalem Post, citing Elaph, published a threat by a senior Israeli military source to Syrian President Bashir al-Assad to bomb his palaces unless he stops or reduces military cooperation with Iran on his territory (although The Jerusalem Post pointed out at the same time that the publication has not yet been able to confirm this information).https://journal-neo.org/2022/06/27/search-for-a-solution-for-syria-intensifies/

There are several "Verkhnokamianske" on maps in this place (including the oil refinery), on second thought i doubt the Russians made it that far west already and it's just a mix up.
At most they control the Verkhniokamianka hamlet south of the Novozolotarivka Railway station:http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=48.854296&lon=38.263750&z=15&show=/14873356/Verkhniokamianka

Snake Island is rendered a no-man's land after Russians evacuate from incessant Ukrainian bombardment
I was told that the Ukrainians overtook Snake Island, but it might have been fake news.
>>347344>Ukrainians overtook Snake Island
Not quite. The ruskies abandoned it, but the island is a rock very difficult to defend. Anyone on it is a sitting duck.
The island was too exposed to long range artillery and UAVs.
Since a naval assault on Odessa couldn't be made it lost it's value and was evacuated. There's videos of hardware that they couldn't bring being bombed by Ru aviation.
>Vitaly Kiselyov, an assistant to the interior minister of the Lugansk People's Republic, told Izvestia about the new goals of the People's Militia after the LPR was completely liberated from Ukrainian nationalists.
>"Next, we will have three directions - Seversk, Soledar and Artemovsk (Bakhmut). Our troops are practically on the way to these cities. Now the troops are redeploying, a smooth advance will begin," he said.
I remember a video of DPR conscripts opposing being sent to LPR frontlines like a month ago, it was understandable since the enemy is literally on the doorstep of Donetsk city and their frontline is way, way bigger.
I wonder if the fighting solely taking place in DPR territory from now on will have a positive or negative effect in terms of DPR/LPR manpower.
Either way, i'm hyped for DPR content, the return to Slavyansk will be kino.
Our neutrality has been gone for decades now, but the Somali flag is accurate i guess.

On northern Slavyansk front, it was revealed that Bohorodychne wasn't captured by the Russians after all.
These images of Ru tanks which had run into a minefield at southwestern outskirts of the town was uploaded by ukrops days ago.
RIA Novosti reported "with reference to LPR Ministry of Internal Affairs" today that the town has been captured. But i don't understand how LPR became the source of news in DPR territory.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=49.014568&lon=37.511187&z=14&show=/1987358/Bohorodychne
Anyway, this puts the validity of the Ru claims of controlling Pryshyb, Sydorove and anything east of Bohorodychne on this side of the river into question... Not to mention Dolyna and Krasnopillia, all claims no proofs.

Huh i though everything east of the Seversky Donets river was under Ru control...
I´m guessing they retreated because the Russians are taking control of the forest between the resort and the river or they realized it´s a stupid position to hold when the main push to Slavyansk is happening on the western side of the river.

TASS are claiming Siversk city has been entered tonight and is being cleared at the moment (Verkhnokamianske was claimed captured earlier by other sources).
If they can´t hold a frontal attack in Siversk, the defensive line to Soledar looks to be kaputt.
Some sources are claiming clashes in or around Pokrovske, Vesela Dolyna and Vershina (last two of these villages are real small).
Power station salient is most definitely being evacuated if Zaitseve is captured.
If everything is true, the nearly two week hiatus from proper offensive action didn´t improve things for the ukrops in the Donbas.

Ah, i forgot to mention the claims yesterday that the Russians were advancing on Soledar. The arrow pointing at Soledar in my map turned out correct.

Haven´t heard anything regarding yesterdays' other claims on Bakhmut front tho.
Clashes in Siversk is claimed to still be ongoing, but i'm starting to doubt they have even reached the city perimiter on account of so few sources talking about it... surely it would've been a bigger deal if it was true.

>>348178>>348179>>348180>When you think WWIII is gonna be ZOMG NUCLEAR BLITZKRIEG but it ends up being WWI on steroids
That has been the running joke in most non-small hat owned/operated/controlled/cucked/kiked/screwed/jewed/shilled to death intel communities, former and active, since 2014. Why is that year significant? It's the same year that the Ukrainians became a banana republic: the president they wanted was not the president that most higher ups in the Jew-S desired.
Within days of that coup, reports of Ukrainians 'going missing', drug trafficking from La Sia using stripped down military/civil airliners, and organ harvesting were rampant. Of course, none of that was ever reported by Jew-S news agencies.. just like every other banana republic has been 'harvested'. In preparation to counter what has been called "external recolonization".
What does Russia and certain allies do when they realize that their next door neighbor is now hosting dozens of secret NATO and Jew-S agencies, not to mention the over half a million unidentified brand new citizens with suspiciously 'muricuck sounding names? They begin to modernize their military and restructure. Some do so seriously, some do not. Technologies and prototypes that were shelved due to lack of funds or interest suddenly become interesting enough to move into experimental stages. Unusual systems, both military and non, that were once scoffed at for being a bit more expensive than the general military grade (re: dogshit that works for a while) slowly trickle into late stage testing scenarios, then enter production. An excellent example is a certain 400 series that, owing to the knowledge of the 300 variant, was rushed into prototype, experimental, and then widespread field usage with better-than-expected results. A poor example would be the T-14 Armata as it was a field testbed for new technologies, and partially as a demonstration platform. A good deal of corruption, bribery, and kickbacks to military complexes have slowed those processes down by a small margin.
The second, more serious implication is this: if
Ukraine were to allahu snackbar Russian forces or regions with nuclear weaponry, the entire world would come to the inevitable conclusion that Ukraine is nothing more than a puppet. The hand controlling them belongs to the political, economic, and social leaders of the Jew-S. In other words: "There is no war in Ba Sing Se."

Usually it is because of lack of reckon.
Recon? They have drones in the air and every kind of map you could think of, they should know that every house could contain an ATGM launcher. I just think they chose the quickest route across the hill believing their artillery had saturated the fortified positions enough to not get shot at by ATGMs.

Dispute over gas fields.
Essentially Hezbollah and others are pressuring the Lebanese government to declare line 29 officially, Lebanon will probably give that up for 23 which Israel would probably accept even though they dispute it currently, this would give Qana to Lebanon and Karish to Israel. Problem being that Karish is known to have oil and gas whereas Qana is not known to have anything yet. Lebanon is still in a real bad economic spot so they would really benefit from Karish. Hezbollah sent some drones a while ago to show they are serious which they may or may not actually be.
Fortunately the US sent someone to mediate, that person being a Jew who was born in Israel and was in the IDF. I think I almost understand what's going on.
I'm glad to see whatever autism you can produce personally.
General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine claim Ru forces were trying to advance on four fronts in Donbas yesterday.
Nothing out of the ordinary besides an assault towards Vodyane in the southwest Donetsk direction, a sign that they might be trying to envelop Pavlivka/Vuhledar. They could uproot the ukrops at the western outskirts of Donetsk city from here and eventually cut the main supply route to Slavyansk at Pokrovsk.
Presumably due to the stiff resistance this front hasn't moved in ages but the scenario of the Slavyansk defensive line being broken from behind might not be too far out there when taking the insane gains of the early days of the war into account.
Thanks fren, i'll try to do better tho
Triple edged war going on there:
#1: Lebanon needs Syria's backing in order to survive (or Iran, but given than the enter huwestern huwurld HAAAAYTTTESSSS Iran, the second option is much more dangerous).
#2: Syria needs ammunition exports in order to keep La Sia and other (((world actors))) from taking over; pissraniggerhail production levels aren't a drop in the bucket compared to the hundred thousand mercenaries demanding bigger, badder weapons and their accompanying accessories.
#3: Russia and other actual independents can
keep up with orders for self-defense systems, ammunition, and securities interests. That scares the kike, which scares the kike's goyim, and in turn scares the golems.
Lebanon, given the proper motivation insert Vergil here
, could roll over all the pissrakikes and their fancy jew-tech toys. Problem is they don't have enough allies around them to maintain a certain number of fighters on the walls, or in the halls.

Also the map is from yesterday but nothing's changed since then so it's not already outdated.
>>348809>Russians capture Svitlodarsk power plant and Novoluhanske (not shown in gains because they were already marked under RU control, Afghanistan deja vu)
The Svitlodarsk power plant is the Vuhlehirska power plant, the plant and Novoluhanske are both real close to Svitlodarsk which was captured back in May. Not shown in gains because a wiki map of this scale would get too cluttered if they added everything i guess.

Russians seize Pisky near Donetsk Airport (issued a correction there and then an update), and Hladosove north of Horlivka
B-but wasn't a long battle in 2015/16 for that airport and the militias won it already? So in all this years the Donbass' forces just came out from the airport skirts?
Something is not adding up.
I mean, the Airport itself was only mostly under control of DPR the entire time, that long battle was to take control of the main buildings but the runway itself was still contested (a no mans land tbh) since then
Donetsk itself is still a frontline city, as in Ukrainians are literally right there at the gates in some suburbs. The metro itself is not under imminent threat, but the Ukrainians are still positioned at the outskirts of its suburbs. It's only recently that the Russians/DPR have been pushing them away from Donetsk city and as Snus mentioned earlier, the DPR refused to send forces to Luhansk during the Sievierodonetsk/Lysychansk offensive because the Ukrainians were right there at the edge of the city
According to the latest claims, Ru forces control roughly 1/4th of Soledar. There's video evidence of them in control of the Knauf plant and a neighborhood which confirms they are making progress inside of the city.
The city is very long and they're fighting through it street by street, everything is suggesting this will be a meatgrinder all the way to the Bakhmut-Siversk road which passes by the western outskirts of the city.
What will happen to the countryside of the Slavyansk-Bakhmut-Siversk triangle, especially the territory west of the Siversk-Bakhmut-Gorlovka river valley itself (extremely small river) is a mystery to me. Siversk next seems pretty obvious but an assault on Bakhmut is not out of the question on account of the battles between Bakhmut and Horlivka.
another pic, zoom in of the airport itself

Novorossia needs Strelkov back.
>>349469>an assault on Bakhmut is not out of the question
There have been claims circulating for days of fighting in the factory zone (black box on Snusmap) in the eastern outskirts of Bakhmut, if it turns out to be true I figure i should've mentioned it before it gets some confirmation.
Haven't seen any footage (besides the ukrops blowing up a pedestrian bridge in the city center) so i'm highly skeptical of the claims even though it's reported by WarGonzo and the UA MoD acknowledging Ru forces are trying to advance directly on Bakhmut city itself.
The city had a population of 72k before the "special operation" started, so it wouldn't be a small feat to capture it without cutting the supply lines etc.
The bridge (orange box on map) was blown up on the sixth of August by the way, smart move by the ukrops to prepare a defensive line along the river early, just in case i guess.
Bridge destroying bonanza continues in Bakhmut (1-2) and Ukr soldier confirms Ru forces have entered the city (3).

I have it but i can't say i'm familiar with it, if that's what you're talking about i could look into it.
at the 6 month mark, the Russians close in on Vuhledar, but otherwise both sides make miniscule gains (Russians in northern Kharkiv, eastern Donetsk; Ukrainians in Kherson/Mykolaiv and Pisky is contested)

>It is stated that the joint forces completely drove the Ukrainian Armed Forces out of the village of Kodema and established full control over it. Information confirmation is awaited
No doubt I've missed a ton of reports but here's a snusmap of how the southern Bakhmut front looks based on what i can remember.
The double Zaitseve towns isn't helping clarity in reports, but for now there hasn't been any storming attempts of northern Zaitseve and southern Zaitseve is only partially under control (northern section that is on the western side of the Bakhmutovka river is under UA control).
If Kodema has been captured (i believe it), the Zaitseve north of it is the next primary target in my mind. I think the Zaitseve to the south is unlikely to get fully captured due to the impressive fortifications overlooking the UA controlled part. Contrary to many mappers who think Kurdiumivka is a target, i think the river will be crossed at the northern Zaitseve, closest to the southern outskirt of Bakhmut city.
Wagnerites in Kodema today:https://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1563968669331476483
Since they're not filming themselves at the village center, i assume there's still ukrops positioned in the fortified hill west-northwest of the village.
They'll have to capture that hill before full control of the village can be established.
Houthi military parade in Hudaydah
From ragtag fighters to a proto army. That is a lot of salaries to pay.
The Ukrainian Kherson offensive seems to be having some success and no doubt the two Russian controlled bridges over the Dnieper River being out of service due to UA artillery is undoubtedly a culprit. So far around 5 frontline villages lost (Vysokopillia, with a pre-war pop of 4000 being the largest).
We'll see if the ukrops can keep the pressure up.
Situation in Donetsk is lame, Ru forces not attempting to advance anywhere.
Russian offensive in Northern Donbas (Siversk, Soledar and Bakhmut front) reportedly restarted with Chechens involved.
In Kherson the ukrops didn't gain anything new and reportedly lost one of the villages they recently gained (Kostroma).
The Ukrainians are masters of finding new and innovative ways of disappointing my already low expectations.
>>351268>In Kherson the ukrops didn't gain anything new and reportedly lost one of the villages they recently gained (Kostroma)
what are your sources for that?
Mostly militarymaps.info and observations from my twitter feed.
so in terms of reliability how many % is it sure that the ukrops are breaking their teeth?
Formations are already complaining publicly about being sent into the meat grinder and they've only seized a few villages.
All i can say is that i don't think this grand offensive will reach Kherson city anytime soon.
aight good to hear
thx for the insights
Shit is going down around Balakliia between Kharkov and Izium, the ukrops made a big breakthrough north of the city.
The russkies really messed up not seeing this coming and understaffing this front but the supply line to Izium is still safe.
Ukrainians launch counteroffensives on two theaters in Kharkiv and Kherson oblasts, and cross the Sieverskiy Donets in Ozerne in northern Donetsk oblast

Oof, now this is an offensive.
Russia pulling out of areas that aren't crucial to keeping the Kupiansk-Izium supply line open in a hurry and Ukraine advancing like crazy.
Shows how undermanned the Russians really are, securing Donetsk Oblast is their top priority but shit like this will keep happening as long as they don't mobilize their full army.
Situation is not looking better, reinforcements on the way but damn.
Did Uncle Assad kill the queen?
Looks like everything west of Oskil river is kaput after the ukrops capture the western side of Kupiansk city and the russkies are reportedly evacuating Izium.
They left a toy army to defend this front holy fuck.
>>351681>They left a toy army to defend this front holy fuck.
Pretty much this.
Overconfidence says the ruskies have to pay the toll now.
They also lost Kupiansk and it looks like the Ukrops are advancing into Luhansk province now with Lysychansk being next up on the gainz train, but we'll see tomorrow. I'll be waiting a few hours before mupdating for gains to calm down for the night.
So much for superpower military, they're a paper tiger. If the West was weak due to all the wokeism at the top, how weak do you have to be to lose to them? All that military corruption killed the army especially since military corruption has a way of showing up only when you're at war.
It's also too late for general mobilization, it might've made all the difference in the first month of the war but it's way too late now and they might even face revolts if they do a general mobilization.
And I'm now starting to think even if Europe gets fucked in major ways during the coming winter, it won't matter anyway. So it's either nukes, sign an unfavorable peace to end the war, or fight to the bloody end and lose anyway.
Someone has a bit of a bias...
>>351697>it looks like the Ukrops are advancing into Luhansk province now with Lysychansk being next up on the gainz train
The Russians were trying to advance in Bakhmut/Soledar direction according to the Ukrop MoD 15 hours ago, surely they didn't leave the Siversk front in that short of a time-span?
Eh, I'm pressing (x) on Lysychansk.>If the West was weak due to all the wokeism at the top, how weak do you have to be to lose to them?

It's impossible to predict the domestic outcome of such a general mobilization but you are wrong about it not making a difference. Army command wouldn't be forced to reactionarily juggle around BTGs from front to front, the wagnerites and chechens could actually focus on offensive actions like they're supposed to be doing.>And I'm now starting to think even if Europe gets fucked in major ways during the coming winter
No amount of freezing central Yuro fags will stop the zogbots of Kiev from waging war with Russia. The worst thing that will happen is nuclear reactors being started up quicker in the EU.
Forgot to add " Kosher certified".
Me laughing at myself a bit, this is all great fun. Personally I would have defended the one weak point in the line.
I'm not really sure how to view this in the longer term, this would have been really bad had they not retreated in such a shockingly snappy way. I'd be fascinated to learn how many people the Russians actually lost. I'm sure the Russians will still somehow avoid mobilizing.
>>351739>I'm not really sure how to view this in the longer term
I have a deep suspicion that the Russian brass left the front unguarded on purpose. Not because they are mounting a clever trap, but to prolong the war. Why? To give the west the necessary excuses to finish its economical suicide. ---> Agenda 2030

Mobilization will look hilarious, considering they spent massive amounts of propaganda insisting this is a "special operation" specifically
so they don't mobilize.>>351715>nuclear reactors starting faster>as if freezing Yurops isn't the goal rather than an unfortunate consequence

And in this specific example it doesn't and just serves as a way to convince white people that are acceptable of white nationalist symbolism to sacrifice their lives for jews?
Russia retreats from most of Kharkiv Oblast and pulled back to the Oskol river line though it seems the Ukrainians have already breached it in some limited places.
Issued very minor corrections in Donbass.

Looks like you're right to press (X) for the time being.>Russian "peace-time force" is fighting a mobilized slavic nation souped up on neo-nazism, not the west.
Should've prepared for that. They had 8 years
to prepare for this war and they've only managed to capture a relatively small portion of Ukraine. Don't get me wrong, it's still sizeable, but they've already given up like half of what they gained since February. If they were truly the superpower military they hyped themselves up to be or even just competent, everything east of the Dniepr would already be under Russian control by now.>It's impossible to predict the domestic outcome of such a general mobilization but you are wrong about it not making a difference.
True, I should've said that it would've been most effective at the beginning since Ukraine began mobilizing on day one and as a result now they outnumber the Russians on the battlefield. Putin should've mobilized on day one, then he wouldn't be stuck with this quagmire that he's in now that he might end up losing anyway. Much like how Germany should've mobilized in 1941 instead of 1943. Sure they'll get more troops but at this point all it'll do is just draw out this meatgrinder even more.
Plus they've been constantly downplaying this war - "It's just a special military operation, it's not a real war". So far they've been trying everything they could to not
mobilize, it's like mobilization is being treated as a last resort second only to using nukes. Mobilization would be admitting that the "special military operation" has completely failed and that it was a war all this time, and people won't be so confident about being able to actually make a difference. If anything, they'll think they're just getting sent over to die and they'll chimp out.>No amount of freezing central Yuro fags will stop the zogbots of Kiev from waging war with Russia.
They're still dependent on a lot of gibs from Europe. Their industry can't produce their own versions of all those shiny toys, they only know how to produce Soviet shit. And in the worst case scenario from Europe, they'll have the choice of facing uprisings at home or giving into a Russian ultimatum of the complete cessation and blockage of weapons and supplies to Ukraine. At least until the winter passes and the Europeans secure alternate sources of fuel.

What are they even going to do? You can't build a pipeline in that time and even if you could were would it go to? Transportation by ship is never feasible and they aren't exactly going to get out of this by building windmills. Stopping weapons supplies and sanctions would be a humiliating defeat, trying to trick the Russians with it is unlikely, if Russia don't get some reason to believe they wouldn't just immediately go back on it they won't take the deal.>>351810> It's Putin's duty to take the L and just do it at this point.
He should at least get a few hundred thousand, but I still think he will dodge it. The Russians still believe, and I still agree mostly, that the war will be won by grinding down the army and not taking territory. From that perspective they don't need that many more soldiers, if they just had another 5,000 sitting on the one undefended portion of the line the attack would have been another ridiculous failure like Kerson was.
Hell, they could have just used some of that offensive force they were building up to do it.

So they march thousands of their own troops to their deaths, lose all the gains they made, and abandon hundreds of billions of dollars worth of equipment just because they feel like it? You're implying that they could end this war in a heartbeat, but don't because they'd rather drag this out for 8 months?
Well, the top brass has ordered to leave a token detachment in place to guard the territory, or is incompetence as you said, or treason as it looks.
I think it's mostly just incompetence.

>>352144>RuAF are using Su-34's to drop
That's a very expensive bomb delivery. I guess they are doing it from above 5,000m to avoid manpads.
Check the video in link, they're flying really low.
Big risk, they obviously fear getting spotted by radar systems more than manpads.
Yup, you are right.
Ukrainians cross the Oskil river and seize Kupiansk in full, along with a minor advance on Lyman
I've seen multiple claims and reports of the Russians advancing on the southern Bakhmut axis the last few days.
If everything is to be believed the map should look something like this.
Locations including the winery in the industrial zone of Bakhmut city, the small village of Mayorsk on the N/W outskirts of Horlivka city, the hamlets of Mykolaivka (+Mykolaivka Druha), the Donbasskaya electrical sub-station and finally Zaitseve.
Mykolaivka and Mayorsk are springboards to bypass the fortified cliff (curved blue line) in order to capture Kurdiumivka town - the ukrops has claimed to have fought back a storming attempt of said town, probably coming from Mykolaivka direction.
I was wrong about Kurdiumivka not being a target, it gives an impression of the Russians planning to use the canal that runs from west of Mayorsk to east of Chasiv Yar as a dividing line to take Bakhmut.
If they make a big push to capture Soledar they are probably going to encircle Bakhmut from the north, but for now if they capture Kurdiumivka they will have a strong road to enter Bakhmut from the south with.
Autistic trivia about the canal i mentioned: It's inlets starts in Slavyansk from the Seversky Donets river and ends up in Donetsk city. There are many gaps where it runs through pipes or underground which makes excellent chokepoints.
The ukrops can't destroy these chokepoints like they always do with bridges so it will be interesting to see how hard they will defend it.
>>352344>chokepoints>so it will be interesting to see how hard they will defend it
It sounds like an ideal situation to wait with a couple of Kornet systems.
Add a healthy amount of land mines and yourself have a pretty ideal defensive line.
Russian accounts are starting to talk about a mobilisation, I'm starting to question my assumption they would cuck. Anyone want to take a guess the scale of this assuming it isn't another meme?

so if ukrops get too close to crimea we can expect either a full mobilisation or some limited use of tactical nuclear weapons?
now this is getting spicy
>>352444>so if ukrops get too close to crimea we can expect either a full mobilisation or some limited use of tactical nuclear weapons?
All the territory they've seized in Ukraine will be considered as a part of Russia "after" the referendums, so yes tactical nukes is on the menu if the ukrops' offensives get out of hand and it's a given that they're already mobilizing manpower for the active fronts.
Odessa and Kharkov SOON™
>>352457>will be considered as a part of Russia "after" the referendums
officially yes, but i don't think it will unofficially to trigger Butin's ultimatum
i think the line to not cross will be pre war russian's territory to garner more legitimacy in the eyes of the world in case of escalation
You're probably right, dropping nukes is not good optics.
Besides, the uptick in manpower is what it's all about really.
>>352444>tactical nuclear weapons
Disclaimer: I don't believe that nukes exist. That said and for the sake of the argument, the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine would be more than retarded as would irradiate and poison the Russian troops and the Russian civilians along the border.
>>352509>I don't believe that nukes exist
peak america moment> would irradiate and poison the Russian troops and the Russian civilians along the border.
nah nuclear weaponry is different to nuclear accidents such as fukushima and chernobyl, they are dropped in air and tend to dissipate in a couple of days. their power comes from the energy blast in itself, not the spreading of (long lasting) isotopes (like when nuclear reactors leak)
hence why hiroshima and nagasaki are liveable as of today but not fukushima
>>352509>I don't believe that nukes exist.
What is so hard to believe about nuclear weapons existing? Nuclear fission releases a fuckton of energy at once, and that energy is substantial to create a large explosion. Once you have the nuclear energy components the bomb itself is not a difficult concept.
I would say that detonating nuclear weapons so close to your own border is still irresponsible, but considering we're dealing with Slavs I think they'll just do it anyway.
>>352563>so close to your own borde
who said anything about detonating them in contested territory?
you could always toss em at odessa or kiev
The nukes most likely to be dropped if it gets to that (doubt it) aren't the massive city annihilating ones.
The warheads on the Iskander-M and Kalibr missiles are roughly 1/10 the weight and generate far less radiation than the ones dropped on Japan.
There's even 100kg artillery shells that's 1/4 the payload of the missiles i mentioned.
Drop one of those badboys in whatever forest you think the enemy is gathering forces in and offensive is over.
The ukrops blew up a road bridge in Bakhmut.
There's still the road on the dam to the south, one hell of a bottleneck.
So apparently the STC took a huge swath of Yemen during an offensive against Hadi forces and then later AQAP starting in late August and throughout this month.
STC takes control of most of Shabhwa province, take full control of Abyan province, kick Hadi out of Dhale province altogether, and secure the entire coastline in Hadhramaut province.
edit: not full control of Abyan province but close to it
Ukraine shitmupdate from yesterday
Ukrainians continue advance on Lyman
Russians seize control of electrical substation to the east of Bakhmut (gains shown but icon isn't shown)
is the ak supposed to look like this
A wire brush and acetone will clean those right up. What pussies.
They look like were not oiled and after years in storage corrosion did its thing.
You have to question if Russia's nuclear arsenal is even functional at this point. Everything else has gone to shit, why expect their nuclear arsenal to be in perfect condition?
Of course, it's not something you want to test.
Ukrainians continue their advance in Kharkiv and northern Donetsk oblast, crossing the Oskil river in more locations and surrounding Lyman on 3 sides.
Theyre for drills.
What an absolute disgrace.
Taken by the ukrops?
Which begs the question. Where are the Russian soldiers and their hardware? If they were moved to another location, why the top brass didn't patch the hole with more fresh ones?
The Russian army is huge, so the excuse that they have no manpower won't fly.
>>353139>Where are the Russian soldiers and their hardware?
They retreated from Lyman before getting encircled, supposedly setting up a defensive line in the Severdonetsk direction.
I can't figure out why they keep retreating really.
>>353139>The Russian army is huge, so the excuse that they have no manpower won't fly.
Why would they invoke a draft it manpower weren't a scarcity?
Ukrainians advance on Lyman and capture the city
Minor Ukrainian advances in Kharkiv
Because as Strelkov said, the level of losses is unsustainable without replenishment. So, the best and more combat proven soldiers are fighting and dying, then in order to reach a sustainable equilibrium, useless cannon fodder needs to be added to the mix.
Ukrainians continue advance in northern Donetsk and eastern Kharkiv, and achieve a breakthrough in northern Kherson oblast
Ukrainians make a major breakthrough in Kherson oblast, and reenter northern Luhansk oblast
Any reports on Ukrainian casualty rates?
If I understand correctly, Ukraine has mobilized ~1mil troops atm, with general mobilization continuing til November this year.
>>353380>1mil troops atm
That's propaganda. Think about it, from where Ukraine is going to get 1m uniforms, 1 m helmets, 1m rifles, 4 million meals a day... it is all BS.
>>353382>4 million meals a day
From the modern day Lend-Lease????????????????????????????>4 million meals>4 meals a day
What kind of pig eats 4 meals a day?
Breakfast, lunch, supper, dinner.
Ukrainians make small advances in Kherson and Kharkiv oblasts
apparently ukrops blew up the crimean bridgehttps://www.reuters.com/world/europe/russias-ria-state-agency-reports-fuel-tank-fire-kerch-bridge-crimea-2022-10-08/
still partially functionalhttps://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-63183404
i wonder if putin will actually grow a pair and nuke a ukrainian city as retaliation as he has promised
Ukrainians advance into Luhansk oblast from another sector of Kharkiv oblast, and secure a settlement along the Khakovka reservoir in Kherson oblast
>Russian strikes hit heart of capitalhttps://www.bbc.com/news/live/world-63193124
apparently putin did send retaliatory strikes toward the ukraine's capital
Extremely rare Syria Shitmupdate
The main point of focus is the infighting between Nusra and FSA has resumed with Nusra marching into Afrin itself and taking over several localities
How did the Turks let this happen? I'm surprised the Salvation Government hasn't been dealt with yet.
>Military Situation In Syria On October 19, 2022 (Map Update)>On October 19, the Russian Ministry of Defense recorded no hostilities and ceasefire violations in the Idlib region in the past 24 hours;>On October 19, SAA artillery shelled positions of Turkish-backed forces in Al-Ankawi village;>On October 18, Turkish tanks and APCs were deployed in Kafr Jannah and at the entrance to Qatma;>On October 18, SAA artillery shelled positions of Turkish-backed forces in al-Barah village;>On October 18, the SDF arrested several ISIS militants in the countryside of Tabqah.https://southfront.org/military-situation-in-syria-on-october-19-2022-map-update/
This time, it features ROADS
>no changes that I can see, just has roads from now on
Ukrainians make medium-scale advances into Luhansk oblast from Kharkiv, and secure a small village on the Kherson-Mykolaiv border near Snihurivka
I think we are seeing the ZOG's plans playing out that Israel want's Syria and they will use ever American and British solider to do it.
M23 rebels take control of Rutshuru and Kiwanja, doubling their territory (but that's not much at all)
Pakistan is really going over the edge, I'm giving a +50% chance of civil war within 2 months.
Why does anyone give half a fuck about the Congo? It's just a bunch of tribal negroes killing each other like they have for thousands of years.
Probably mineral resources + geopolitical chess.
China seems to think they're worth colonizing.
Rwanda might go in again, which would be very exciting.
China loaning money to niggers in return for nigger land is too slow. China should bribe niggers to get spayed and neutered like cats and all niggers should be sent to work camps that make Aushwitz look like a fucking spa.
The battle for Bakhmut is still trudging along at a snails pace.
The foothold in the industrial zone has been abandoned/lost, probably due to the ukrops blowing up the bridge to central Bakhmut, lowering the strategic value of entering Bakhmut on the eastern side of the river: >>352589
I haven't seen much of anything in the Kurdiumivka direction but the Russians are still battling in the south and south-east of Bakhmut along the Bakhmutske river.
Here is a video of the Russians in the heights S/E of Bakhmut and in Ivanhrad (a chain of cottages parallel to Opytne (a village/suburb in Bakhmut) on the eastern side of the river) showing Opytne and Bakhmut in the background: https://twitter.com/Taurevanime/status/1589421103499579393
On the western side of the river, Odradivka has been under Ru control for quite some time but the situation between it and Opytne is unknown for now. I'd keep my eyes on this area though.
Russians abandon Kherson and everything west of the Dneipr, with the Ukrainians moving in behind them.
There was a recent hit on a port in Yemen by Houthi over oil money, this plus expiration of ceasefire deal is leading me to believe they want the war to restart but don't want to be blamed for doing it. Expect offensive operations to start within next 2 months when they can find a good enough excuse.
Video of Wagner storming trenches around crossroads on S/E outskirts of Bakhmuthttps://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1592239609031053312
Ukrop MTLB fleeing the location was targeted with ATGMhttps://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1592231134183985152
Wagner also took trenches at the garbage sorting plant further down the road:https://t.me/news_1tv/16161
This puts the Russians real close to the dam.
On the southern end, on the western side of the Bakhmutovske river, Mayorsk has been captured (for real this time).https://twitter.com/mdfzeh/status/1592212704974213120
This advance paired with week old reports of Ru forces capturing trench strongholds along the road between Mykolaivka and Mayorsk means the road from Horlivka to Bakhmut (Opytne) theoretically is under Russian control, albeit still under partial UA fire control. The Russians will need to expand the buffer zone along the railway, towards the water canal and preferrably capturing Kurdiumivka (which is still under ukrop control) to enable mechanized forces an easy entrance into the southwestern environ of Bakhmut.
It's been a while and the situation is as stands:
Ethiopia and Eritrea launched joint invasion of Tigray region, leading to them seeking peace
Oromo revolts aren't nearly as widespread as previously portrayed
Overall, Ethiopia is looking a lot more stable now... for now.
Andriivka, Ozarianivka and Zelenopolie captured by Wagner, Kurdiumivka likely already captured as well.
Next step is Klischiivka.
Remember Siversk front?
Spornoe reportedly captured, though from what i can see from this report, it's only the eastern part with a few cottages:https://twitter.com/mdfzeh/status/1597235147061235712
