In all fairness, it's pretty hard to compete with funny cat videos. They've got a massive and very diverse target audience.

True but cat videos are not being farmed by armies of bots from troll farms in St Petersburg.

Not a whole lot of surrendering going on now is there.
117 days now of young Russian conscripts who don’t want to be there being fed into a giant meat grinder. It’s insanity. Just kids as young as 18 with barely a boot camp.
Nobody wants to kill them. They just don’t put up much of a challenge to the seasoned adversary they face.
Strategically they,ve already lost this war. But these kids don’t know that. Just propoghanda filling coffins.
All just to feed the ego of one madman.

Dear Womble
This guy does not seem to agree with you.

Yes he is probably just a Russian propagandist troll spreading disinformation.

Are you actually looking, reading real media sources. Let me enlighten you a bit too reality

Germany and for that matter rest of Europe is still buying Russian oil and gas.
India is still buying Russian oil.
China is buying so much oil from Russia that its its become biggest source of oil. Btw China is the largest consumer of oil in the world.
We all know China is also supplying arms to Russia.
Germany has only this week skuttled a deal to supply solvakian track to Ukraine.

Have you imagined what will happen in Europe come winter time. And where they get heating gas and electricity generation from. No wonder they are looking at restarting their mothballed coal electric plants, not cheap nor easy.

Have you considered its only a few weeks before the media will realise the huge price increase in oil is due to the embargo on supply of Russian oil. I mean Europe, China, India etc etc etc getting Russian oil and getting it for cheap, why are we paying ridiculous for our petrol

And most importantly the small attention span of European and western public.

This is utter crap, 2500 just retreated out of Hirske into Lysychansk Aztol factory where the main roads are now cutoff. Its going to be almost impossible for them to get out. The Kadyrov just said their special forces have the factory surrounded. Only a matter of time Mariupol.

Keep believing whatever you like. There's going to another mass surrender or destruction in the next week, Aztol is nothing like the Azov steel works and how did that work out for Ukraine, 1036 Marines surrendered followed by Azov battalion.

The master goat ****** still alive and talking s**t as usual then.
But he’s not even in Ukraine or remotely close to it.
Most of the Chechen tiktokers around the industrial Severodonetsk have gone quiet.

What I believe is of no consequence. But fwiw I’m going with a stalemate currently.
Once this is sorted though, you’ve got a country with a defence system on par with Israel . Impregnable.

Ive been in two conflicts, served in one, contracted in the other and one defining factor of both was that nothing was reported accurately in the media. I have no doubt this situation between russia and some 2nd world dump no one can find on a map, is any different. They could put up footage of playstation COD battles and the average suburbanite would lap it up and argue about it.

The sanctions are about the most bungled concept of the whole show. Sanctions are meant to be weaponised trade policies, cripple the enemy . At this point it looks like our entire side is crippling itself by sanctioning a country that is not even a top 10 economy. Anyone at the top checking the math on this? Is their a 3rd grade primary school teacher anywhere on the staff? :lol:

Meanwhile the elephant in the room, the fact we all know we are going to have inflation across multiple sectors, from 2 years of lockdowns(and we were even told this, hundreds of times, in the last two years!), moseys out the door....

That's my point as well. All these sanctions have done is increase inflation for us poor schmucks.

All the while big oil is printing money, food is up and will keep going up. With inflation in Australia at 5% i region it is likely to head towards double digits by Christmas if the war still keeps on going, esp when winter hits and Europe starts freezing.

What's ironic is that even though Russia is probably still selling about the same amount of oil and gas as before but the market sentiment is that there is more demand then supply... keeping the prices high

Not looking good for Ukraine. They have been ordered to retreat but columns are getting completely smashed by artillery and helicopters. They must be out of stingers.

russia bleeding europe is only part of the problem, its how much big business will milk it too. Not much chance of them taking a hit to profits, but you and I will.

Like covid. You and I paying more for everything from computers, car parts, postage, milk, steak, chicken, workboots, a steelspan shed the last two years but the worlds richest all skyrocketed their wealth. I mean they didnt just get richer, they actually created a new level of rich...

Well I just hope they are prepared for these sanctions. They may need bigger screens on their smartphones to check their net worth by the end of it . :lol:

Seriously dude, are you delusional? The Russians already captured the French artillery. I'm sure they will make a monument out of the US ones too.

That was a fake article placed in an Indian newspaper 5 days ago, since debunked.
Pretty poor effort when they didn’t even fabricate a photo.
If they even captured one of the Caesars they would be playing it 24/7 on state media.

Kiev has just ordered their forces to retreat from Severodonesk

Next they will be ordering them to retreat from Lysychansk. Problem will be they are encircled and can't because it's too late.

The walls of reality are falling in.

Latest reports suggest that Germany and France are dangling the bait of EU membership to Ukraine in order to get Ukraine to capitulate as soon as possible.
This will allow a return to "business as usual" with a rehabilitated Russia.

True, well done.
They absorbed hell. The Russians levelled both cities and now have moved in to take control of the rubble. They paid a very high price for them.

Its never going to happen. The EU membership will take years. Germany is going into meltdown come winter if they have no gas. If Russia encircles the best troops Ukraine threw at them in the Donbass then the might still do a Barbarosa to Kiev before winter.The only EU membership is to a former state.

Candidate status for Ukraine and Moldova has been approved. Required Germany and France to give the thumbs up.
Basically probation period. They are prospects but no bottom rocker on their colours yet.
Have to show their commitment with agreed to reforms and do a lot of heavy lifting yet.
Still, it is a seal of approval :thumbsup:
