    That's rather glaringly obvious, Vitaliy.

    Some advice....you claim you're in Kazan, which is in Siberia. That's been earmarked by China for settlement.

    Maybe leave,while you can. If you think NATO expansion,and EU is a threat, wait til China absorbs your city, and imposes Mandarin and its "values". If you resist, get used to hanging upside down by your toenails. I'm told it's not something you want to experience?

    Ukraine hits military and energy targets. Russia hits children's hospitals. Meanwhile, a Russian bot farm was busted.

    Ukraine Conflict Updates
    Russian Offensive Campaign Assessment, July 9, 2024

    Click here to read the full report.
    Key Takeaways:

    • Russian President Vladimir Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi issued a joint statement on July 9 about strengthening mutually beneficial political, economic, energy, and military-technical cooperation between Russia and India.
    • Putin has been intensifying efforts to strengthen Russian relations with non-Western countries through individualized appeals, although he is likely emphasizing Russo-Indian cooperation in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and BRICS as part of a wider Russian effort to create an alternative "Eurasian security architecture" leveraging existing Eurasian multilateral organizations.
    • Modi tacitly supported the Kremlin's false narrative that Russia is interested in a peaceful, negotiated resolution to the war in Ukraine, likely in exchange for deepening economic, energy, and technological cooperation with Russia.
    • Putin may have pledged to return Indian volunteers fighting in Ukraine during a private dinner with Modi in Novo-Ogaryovo, Moscow Oblast on July 8.
    • Some unnamed US government officials appear to believe that Ukraine does not need to liberate its occupied lands and people to win the war, despite Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent clear statements that Russia will not accept a negotiated ceasefire on any terms other than Ukrainian capitulation and will not abandon its goals of the total destruction of the entire Ukrainian state--not just the lands it currently occupies.
    • Several independent investigations, including one conducted by the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Monitoring Mission in Ukraine (HRMMU), concluded that a Russian missile struck the Kyiv City Okhmatdyt Children's Hospital on July 8 amid continued official Russian denials and deflections.
    • Ukrainian forces conducted a series of drone strikes against Russian energy and military infrastructure in Belgorod, Kursk, Rostov, Astrakhan, and Volgograd oblasts overnight on July 8 to 9.
    • Russian President Vladimir Putin appointed new military prosecutors on July 8, likely in support of ongoing, long-term Russian military reforms.
    • Newly-elected Iranian President Masoud Pezeshkian reiterated Iran's continued willingness to enter a comprehensive strategic partnership with Russia, emphasizing the continuity in Iran's support for Russia even under a new presidential administration.
    • The US Department of Justice (DoJ) released affidavits on July 9 for several hundred X (formerly Twitter) accounts and domain names used by Russian state media and security services to operate a bot farm aimed at spreading disinformation in the US and abroad.
    • Russian forces recently made confirmed advances southeast of Chasiv Yar, near Avdiivka, and southwest of Donetsk City, and Ukrainian forces recently advanced north of Kharkiv City.
    • Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree ordering the reestablishment of the Saratov Higher Artillery Command School on July 8, likely as part of ongoing efforts to build out a cadre of Russian officers.
    • Russian authorities continue to deploy Rosgvardia contingents to occupied Ukraine to serve law enforcement functions. . . . .

    The Russian high command has failed to carry out Mission Impossible. They all should have retired and moved to Switzerland as soon as Putin started to assemble an invasion force on the border. Too late now.

    This is "obvious" only to you, because you have been fed the "correct" explanation of what is happening in Russia.But in fact, everything is different.

    And by the way, Kazan is not located in Siberia, it is located in Europe. You see, you don't even know this, but you are trying to give advice on how to live and you are sure that you understand better than us why the war between Ukraine and Russia began.

    Kazan is in Tatarstan Okrug....so it's borderline Asiatic.....everything East of Urals is Asiatic and not European....Vitaliy.

    RuZzia invaded Ukraine because it wanted Europe....not Asiatic freedom...Vitaliy.

    You must understand why Ukraine would not want to be Russian territory again after the last 100 year history I hope. After mass starvation called The Holodomorin the 1930’s. Then there was the great purge that included the murder of many Ukrainians in the late 1930’s (both committed by Stalin).

    Then in 1941 Germans came in and took control of much of Ukraine where many considered the Germans liberators after the hell of the last decade given to them by Stalins Russia. To be honest who can blame them for feeling this way after millions were killed by Russian authority in the previous decade.

    Then there was Chernobyl that the Russians initially tried to cover up.

    Then in 1991 they finally gain their independence. And in 1994 they gave up their nukes in a deal with Russia and the United States in exchange for Russia respecting their borders and a promise not to invade and to even provide assistance if a nuclear power were to attack them, among other things. Just another example of never to give up arms, ever!

    I think it’s pretty obvious why Ukrainians have reasons to fight for their sovereignty over this country that has murdered and lied to them hand over fist in the past. If I were them I wouldn’t trust them either.

    I am Russian, you could have guessed it by my name. The Tatars have completely different names: Aidar, Tagir, Renat, Farid, Ildar and the like.

    All my ancestors were Russian, and I know my ancestors until the end of the 19th century. The very first of the great-grandfathers I know was still a serf.

    I have an interesting pedigree, on my father's side all my ancestors were peasants, and on my mother's side there were nobles. It is possible that I have more relatives in the USA than in Russia, because when the revolution of 1917 took place, my great-great-grandfather's sons (there were five or six of them) emigrated to America because they were nobles and feared for their lives. There is only one brother left - my great-grandfather.

    Russian strategy has degenerated to a war of attrition. Success of such a strategy is very much in doubt.

    Ukraine Conflict Updates
    Russian Offensive Campaign Assessment, July 10, 2024

    Click here to read the full report
    Key Takeaways:

    • Ukrainian First Deputy Defense Minister Lieutenant General Ivan Havrylyuk stressed that robust Western security assistance will be crucial for Ukraine's ability to contest and seize the battlefield initiative. Havrylyuk also challenged the notion that Russian forces will be able to indefinitely sustain the consistent gradual creeping advances that support Russian President Vladimir Putin's theory of victory for winning a war of attrition in Ukraine.
    • Ukrainian forces are already attempting to contest the battlefield initiative in limited and localized counterattacks at the tactical level — emphasizing that the current state of grinding positional warfare along the frontline is not an indefinitely stable one.
    • Havrylyuk assessed that Russia will face medium- to long-term economic and equipment challenges that will impede the Russian military's ability to indefinitely retain the theater-wide initiative, sustain consistent offensive pressure that results in gradual creeping advances, and win a war of attrition.
    • Putin's articulated theory of a slow, grinding victory in Ukraine is notably premised on accepting continuously high casualty rates, as exemplified by reported Russian losses accrued during two recent offensive efforts.
    • NATO allies reaffirmed their commitment to supporting Ukraine and announced new security assistance packages for the Ukrainian war effort at the NATO summit in Washington, DC on July 9 and 10.
    • Russian Security Council Deputy Chairperson Dmitry Medvedev reaffirmed that Russia would not accept or uphold any negotiated peace settlements with Kyiv short of Ukrainian capitulation, the destruction of the entire Ukrainian state, and the full occupation of Ukraine.
    • Servicemembers of a Russian motorized rifle regiment that was previously implicated in the execution of Ukrainian prisoners of war (POWs) in late May 2024 reportedly executed two Ukrainian POWs in the same area in western Zaporizhia Oblast in June 2024.
    • Select US military bases in Europe have instituted increased alert levels in response to intensified Russian sabotage and hybrid operations against NATO allies over the past several months.
    • Russian forces recently advanced in Vovchansk, near Kreminna, and near Toretsk.
    • The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) claimed on July 10 that the Russian military trained the first batch of Moscow Military District (MMD) counter-drone instructors at the Alabino training ground in Moscow Oblast. . . .

    Western leaders need to accept the Inconvenient Truth.
    There will be no peace in Europe until the Russian military is defeated and the Putin regime is replaced.

    yeah....this doctrine of limited engagement based on the imagined fear of a collapse of a Putin government is nonsense now.....both the US and Germany are dithering. They're merely reacting to situations as they arise rather than joining in a coordinated and strategic plan of action. The "let's just keep Ukraine in the game" scenario is no longer a viable concept.

    "The title here is one of the most famous (infamous?) statements ever made in the history of world politics. It was said by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain on September 27, 1938 in reference to the growing British anguish over German Chancellor Adolf Hitler’s ambition to take Czechoslovakia. In retrospect, it characterized the foreign policies of all the Western democracies who were committed to “appeasement” foreign policies ... . This included the United States, which refused even to join its own creation, the League of Nations, and which in the 1930s passed several “Neutrality” laws aimed against any commitments toward any future war. Even after both Germany and Britain went to war in September 1939, the U.S. still remained isolated.

    On December 11, 1941, four days after Pearl Harbor, both Hitler and Mussolini (Italy) declared war on a reluctant and unprepared America. Otherwise, the U.S., most certainly, would have fought Japan alone and without major incentive to join the wars in the remainder of the world. Apparently, to most Americans, western Europe, including both France and England, was, to quote Chamberlain, too “faraway” to bother."
