Ukraine will encircle it at some point and put the squeeze on the Russian forces
Without BoroLad’s mates information people like me who only read or listen to the mainstream media would know very little about this war, I note the Guardian’s current headline is Ukraine deny that Bakhmut is under Russian control compared to the details above.Thank you again BoroLad(also thank you to your knowledgeable friend).
It's good(good is probably not the right word, probably informative is better) to get the information from somebody who has his finger on the pulse in the situation. And can give a better perspective on the overall situation.
In Moscow's Shadows and The Power Vertical have been nteresting. Someone on here has mentioned them before.there are some good podcasts around, I listen to the telegraphs daily 'ukraine - the latest' and another one called 'battleground - ukraine'. anyone recommend any others?
In Moscow's Shadows and The Power Vertical have been nteresting. Someone on here has mentioned them before.
Here's what I recived .... will post in chronological order as it seems to be a rapidly changing scenario.
"News are exploding about Ukraine potentially having started a full scale invasion of Ukraine.
What is known is that the Liberty Legion (Russian volunteer unit fighting for Ukraine) stormed and totally annihilated the Russian Customs and Border Protection post on the main highway towards Belgorod City.
There are reports of them moving forward, and anecdotal reports of further units from the Ukrainian regular army with heavy gear.
Ops (ours) state that this is likely to be either a very heavy diversionary attack or a full scale invasion.
Among the units idling at the border is the monster brigade we sent to Ukraine.
There are also videos of the Liberty Legion promising to liberate Moscow.
Early hours, but here we go.
It will be hours until we know for sure what the hell is happening.
My initial thought, Ukraine got permission during G7 to invade Russia."
"A short update.
Units of the regular Ukrainian army is now confirmed to have crossed Rubicon.
Among them is the overpowered NBG under it's new commander (guess who).
It and the other forces are hauling **** down the highway blowing **** up as they go.
Permission has indeed been given at the G7 summit to invade the border regions of Russia, primarily Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk.
As I mentioned previously it was highly suspicious the shear volume of artillery fire that Ukraine used against Belgorod.
Also, that order of evacuation that was running nonstop over dozens of civilian radio channels was also a dead giveaway.
From a military standpoint, there is nothing that Russia can do against this invasion.
All of their troops are at the wrong places, and there is nothing that can be brough in due to railroad bridges having been cut.
The Russian Governor of Belgorod has fled the City for Moscow, and so have many others in the civil authorities.
I fully expect Ukraine being at the gates of the City later this afternoon/evening and the City to fall sometime tomorrow, unless Ukraine for some reason hold back or stop.
I suggest that the new name should be Ukrainian People's Republic of Belgorod."
"Here are the towns and villages confirmed to already having been liberated in the Special Police Operation in support of the Russian Liberty Legion with the mission to secure democracy and freedom of Russian citizens:
Kozinka, Glotovo, Grayvoron, Masychovo, Golovchino, Krasivo and Zozuli.
Currently under attack is Borisovka.
This means that Ukraine is almost halfway to Belgorod
Radio channels are blaring that these are Russian forces that are there to liberate them and restore democracy in Russia, and that they are supported by SPO forces from Ukraine.
The message is saying among other things: "Do not be afraid, we are Russian forces that has come to liberate Russia, remain calm and it will be over soon".
And here is the kicker, it is sanctified by Xi.
"Ukraine's involvement in an internal conflict of Russia is not of concern for China".
"I just got a picture from Seretino as our favourite one barged through in tanks and CVs decked out in the White-Blue-White flag of Russia that is used by the opposition and the Blue/yellow of Ukraine.
She has blasted away from the other units and seem to be on a private thunder-run to Belgorod hitting speeds of 50km hour between the villages and towns, she clipped Seretino at that speed without even slowing down...
People where out in the streets waving all sorts of old Russian flags (pre-putin) that they somehow found or made, and a few hastily sewn "Ukrainish" flags.
Seems like Putin was not that Universally loved...
Dozens of private jets and Russian Air Force government planes have started to airlift people out of Moscow to China.
It is believed that Xi have guaranteed their safety as long as they give up and get the hell out of Russia.
And, seemingly the rats are fleeing at breakneck speed as the holy wrath of Ukraine is barging down the highways towards them.
"Do not give me ammo, give me a ride"
Vladimir Putin, Former President of Russia
(I am trying my best to get those pictures of her flying through Seretino released for publication)
And no, I was not bawling when I saw them, there is just an inconveniently lodged elephant in my eyes..."
All this was between 10.am and 1.35 pm
