The Second Cold War Is Escalating Faster Than the First
>In J.R.R. Tolkien’s great epic, The Lord of the Rings, it becomes apparent only gradually that the forces of darkness have united. Sauron, with his baleful all-seeing eye, emerges as the leader of a vast axis of evil: the Black Riders, the corrupted wizard Saruman, the subhuman orcs, the malignant courtier Wormtongue, the giant venomous spider Shelob — they are all in it together, and Mordor is their headquarters.
>Tolkien knew whereof he wrote. A veteran of World War I, he watched with dismay the approach of a second great conflagration. Sipping pints of bitter and puffing his pipe in “The Shire” — his idealized Middle England — he could only shudder as Nazi Germany, fascist Italy and imperialist Japan came together to form their Axis in 1936-37, and mutter, “I told you so,” when Hitler and Stalin joined forces in 1939.
>We, too, are witnessing the formation and consolidation of an Axis. I was vividly reminded of Tolkien by a tweet published by the conservative broadcaster Mark R. Levin on Tuesday. It is worth quoting: “Appeasement is escalation. Our enemies are on the move. Our allies are being encircled and attacked or soon attacked. … Conservatism and MAGA are not about isolationism or pacifism. They’re not about appeasement or national suicide. … It is up to us, patriotic Americans, to step into the breach and get this done now.”

>The Second Cold War Is Escalating Faster Than the First
Well I mean, yeah. When the first Cold War started everyone was basically flat footed and atomic weapons and their countermeasures were being developed as they go along. Additionally The public was absolutely balls out terrified of nuclear war and it even leaked into pop culture.
Nowadays the weapons and delivery systems already exist and probably more importantly the average normalfag doesn't really believe that an atomic exchange could happen so their "moralizing" us-vs-them attitude is completely untempered. 

It really feels like we're all headed for something nasty. Ironically I think possibly the only thing that might sober everyone up before it's too late would be for some major power, or one of their client states, to use a tactical weapon in a way that is not immediately escalatory. Either that or engage in an open air test.

Some big shit within Russian MoD was arrested under the corruption charges.
The Deputy Defense Minister Timur Ivanov was arrested for taking some pretty hefty bribes.

Corruption may be endemic but there's still varying degrees of corruption, it's one thing to buy your way out of a traffic ticket or avoid some administrative bullshit - it's the norm - or even when the local police chief drives around in luxury cars. It's a whole game when public officials *somehow* obtain multi-million dollar mansions and yachts because it sure ain't from their official salary. Who doesn't love to see a giant?
From what I read this guy in particular was known for a long time to flaunt his wealth of dubious provenance, but had protection from working closely with Shoigu going years back. It had to be Putin who made the call to have him arrested, my best guess is some of the kickbacks ended up undermining his agenda in Ukraine.

A bigger issue is that the aithor of the work fails to understand Faramir (like the movies did), the underlying Christianity, and how LotR was shaped by Tolkien's experience in WWI. Tying it to the modern myth of WWII is wrong, and disingenuous. 
I don't mind talking Tolkien. But yeah, any of the "barbarians at the gate", Greeks vs. Persians, or even defense of Europe from Ottomans or defense of anyone from the Mongols would work better then Tolkien for what the author is trying to convey. So called conservatives should be using millennia of history to back their arguments, and not rely on the past century, as if only the last 85 years matter.

You jest but does Ukraine have any functional runways left for the F-16? I'm guessing any "real" airports runways are either bombed out now or will be shortly if they become relevant. With that low mounted air intake grass/dirt fields are out of the question. There should be have plenty of "strategic highways" left designed for transporting nuclear launchers from the soviet days but that sounds like a logistical nightmare in the best of times.

Military support doesn't mean much when your troops are severely depleted and almost all of your infrastructure in the combat zones is fucked. If NATO troops get directly involved then you should worry otherwise it's still just a continuation of the Ukrainian genocide at the behest of psychopathic western leadership to fight against an uncompromising KGB agent. I don't see gay toe ever doing that though, just like with the UN they won't do shit without the USA's approval and the USA is currently having a prolonged schizophrenic meltdown and can't even defend its own borders.

Shitposting aside how long does Strelok expect Kharkov to last under Ukrop rule from this point onward?
My own armchair nigger estimate is ~4 months from the first Russian unit to enter the city limits, but there's always the possibility of a sudden late November 2016 Aleppo-tier roflstomp/ass surrender.

I dunno man russians hace trully impressive urban warfare record in this conflict, if they really pushed for it I bet they could do it in  2 months just like Mariupol. But I doubt they will attack Kharkov directly, at least untill they practically encircle it.

The Excavator footage is supposedly somewhere in Kharkov, 3rd line of defense.
They've supposedly reached the city center but there's still like 70% of the city left to capture. Doubt Ukrainians are gonna let it go easy and will probably throw everything in there since Volchansk is linchpin of the Ukrainian defense on that section of the front. If Volchansk goes, the whole right flank goes.

That being said, it seems that Russians captured more ground in 4 days in Kharkov than Ukrainians did during their 3 month Summer Offensive in Zaporozhie.
That being said, Ukrainians are no doubt preparing fallback lines in the rear, so there will probably be no collapse of UAF

Putin’s one tank victory parade is a timely reminder Russia can be beaten
>For the second year running, Russia’s Victory Day parade in Moscow on May 9 featured just one solitary tank. Throughout his twenty-four year reign, Russian ruler Vladimir Putin has used the annual Victory Day holiday to showcase his country’s resurgence as a military superpower. However, the underwhelming spectacle of a single World War II-era T-34 tank pootling across Red Square has now become a embarrassing tradition and a painful reminder of the catastrophic losses suffered by the Russian military in Ukraine.
>Prior to the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, Victory Day parades had typically featured dozens of tanks as the Kremlin sought to demonstrate its vast arsenal and trumpet Russia’s leading role in the defeat of Nazi Germany. The difference this year did not go unnoticed, with many commentators poking fun at Putin. “This T-34, the legendary Soviet tank from World War II, was the only Russian tank on display at the Victory Day parade in Red Square today. The others must all be busy somewhere!” quipped Financial Times Moscow bureau chief Max Seddon.
>Putin’s parade came just one day after analysts at open source conflict monitoring site Oryx announced that visually confirmed Russian tank losses in Ukraine had passed the 3000 mark. Oryx researchers document military losses based on video or photographic evidence, while recognizing that overall figures are likely to be “significantly higher” than those verified by publicly available open source materials. Meanwhile, the latest figures from the Ukrainian military indicate Russia has lost as many as 7429 tanks since February 2022. While Ukraine’s claims regarding Russian battlefield losses are generally treated with a degree of skepticism, even the visually confirmed baseline figure of 3000 tanks underlines the devastating toll of Putin’s invasion on the Russian military.
>In addition to exposing the Kremlin’s dwindling supply of tanks, this year’s strikingly modest Victory Day festivities have also drawn attention to other negative consequences of Russia’s ongoing Ukraine invasion. During the buildup to the holiday, a number of major Russian cities including Pskov, Kursk, Bryansk, and Belgorod announced they would not be staging traditional Victory Day parades this year. These cancellations were justified on security grounds, highlighting the growing threat posed by Ukraine to targets inside Russia.
>Since the start of 2024, Ukraine has brought the war home to Russia with a highly successful long-range drone campaign against the country’s oil and gas industry, including air strikes against refineries located more than one thousand kilometers from the Ukrainian border. While Kyiv has largely refrained from attacks on civilian targets, Ukraine’s proven ability to strike deep inside Russia is a major blow to the Kremlin, which has vowed to shield the Russian public from the war and prevent any disruption to everyday life.
>The downgrading of Russia’s Victory Day celebrations is a personal blow for Putin, who has sought to place the holiday at the heart of efforts to revive Russian nationalism following the loss of status and perceived humiliations of the early post-Soviet period. This approach marked a departure from the Soviet years, when Victory Day was overshadowed by a number of more ideologically driven holidays such as May Day and the annual anniversary of the October Revolution. Indeed, during the 46-year period between the end of World War II and the fall of the USSR, the Soviet authorities held just three Victory Day military parades in Moscow.
>It was Putin who masterminded the rise of Victory Day to its current position as Russia’s most important public holiday. Since the early 2000s, he has transformed Victory Day into the propaganda centerpiece of a pseudo-religious cult, complete with its own sacred symbols, feast days, saints, and dogmas. Anyone who dares question the Kremlin’s heavily distorted and highly sanitized version of the Soviet role in World War II is treated with the kind of ruthless severity once reserved for medieval heretics. Meanwhile, in a further nod to the continued potency of the World War II narrative in Putin’s Russia, opponents of the Kremlin are routinely branded as “fascists” and “Nazis.”

The only negative thing about the Russians winning is the amount of braindead russian retards that have spilled into social media calling every Western weapon "trash" and how NATO tactics are inferior. 
Yesterday I watched a video where ukrainian border scouts guards got ambushed and they ran away when their MG3 got jammed. Every second comment was a russoid calling the MG3 a "terrible unreliable nazi gun" and all about how the AK-47 (Yes,  AK-47, not AKM, AKMN, AK-103 or even RPK. No, the AK-47 in particular) could run forever without maintenance.  

There is nothing more retarded than radicalized normalfags
Sadly that's the reality
To be fair , its been other way round for decades now, with every single slavshit being inherently inferiour.

Best thing is to ignore the retards on both sides.
Why are you using social media in the first place? If it's just for news why are you reading the comments at all? If you haven't learned by now that all comment sections on all major (and most minor) platforms are deliberately filtered down into the dumbest shitheads imaginable then I don't know what to tell you. Your complaint is like applying for work at a septic tank draining company, driving trucks full of shit, opening septic tanks to drain them, and then being surprised everything around you smells of turds.

I think baking in this context means training, so the ukrops have a company of untrained women not holding the line.

My guess is that the first one is something about them being underequipped to the point they might as well be fighting with sticks or something. The hole in mouth might be some mistranslated slang about firing at the enemy. Maybe the Rooskies are advancing so quickly or the enemy is so disorganized that they don't know where are the lines, so they can't call in mortar fire and that is why he has nothing to do.

Yesterday, a new law on mobilization came into force in the so-called Ukraine, providing for a reduction in the minimum conscription age to 25 years, the cancellation of the right to deferment for many categories of citizens, and the recruitment of those previously considered unfit for service.

The reaction of Ukrainian citizens is clearly visible in numerous videos from cities in the territories controlled by the Kyiv regime: the streets and public spaces are empty, people are massively staying at home due to the risk of being caught by the military registration and enlistment office employees.

I've said this before. These little drones will have the same lifetime as heavy tanks did. They'll be the cool thing to have for a few years, but by 2030 everyone will have a counter to them. 1 small (four wheeler-carried) signal jammer can disrupt communications for miles. And they're not very expensive, about 10k each if they're really good and specifically designed for anti-drone warfare. 

Then you get a SHORAD in there with AESA radars with 30+mm airburst ammunition, and suddenly your killer drones are rendered incapable of reaching a juicy target. 
Most of these "cheap" FPV drones that can carry anti-tank rockets cost $1000 minimum. 7-8 get jammed by 1 jammer and you're already lost in the cost department

This drone arms race is just getting started, things will evolve from here, that's a foregone conclusion. That doesn't undermine the fact that these FPV drones are available today and are cheap enough and (still) effective enough.
The thing with radars and jammers are 1) they are rather fragile 2) they glow brighter than 3 letter agencies, now imagine a swarm of small autonomous radiation-homing drones coming at it from multiple directions. And you can't exactly cover a radar or jammer with a faradaycopecage like they're doing with tanks. cue radiation-emitting decoys?

Do you have any idea how much HAR guidance systems cost relative to a cheap jammer?
The moment you put two of them in the air, the jammer has paid for itself, and you want to send a swarm of them?
Yes, please, go ahead; your swarm of (say) 10-15 all converge on a single low-power, cheap jammer. 30 seconds later another low-power, cheap jammer comes online. Repeat until your economy is toast.

Fun fact: The cheapest reliable HAR guidance system costs approximately $13,000 (and it's Chinese, so the price is not bloated via American industrial corruption), which is far more than the cheapest jammer that reliably works on FPV drones at useful ranges (which costs around $5500, also Chinese, or ~$8500 if you want American and thus cost bloat).

U.S. claims recently launched Russian satellite is an ASAT
> The U.S. government claims that a recently launched Russian satellite is a counterspace weapon placed in nearly the same orbit as an American reconnaissance satellite.
>Amb. Robert Wood, U.S. alternate representative for special political affairs in the United Nations, made the allegation during a May 20 debate by the U.N. Security Council on a Russian resolution proposing a ban on the placement of weapons of any kind in space.
>“Just last week, on May 16, Russia launched a satellite into low Earth orbit that the United States assesses is likely a counterspace weapon, presumably capable of attacking other satellites in low Earth orbit,” he said. “Russia deployed this new counterspace weapon into the same orbit as a U.S. government satellite.”
>Russia launched a Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia May 16. Its primary payload was a satellite designated Cosmos 2576. The Russian government did not disclose details about the satellite or its mission.
>Independent satellite observers noted in the days following the launch that Cosmos 2576 is in an orbit with some of the same parameters as USA 314, a spacecraft believed to be a reconnaissance satellite. Cosmos 2576 is in a lower orbit, but observers noted that Cosmos 2558 launched into a similar orbit in 2022 and then raised its orbit to make close approaches to another American reconnaissance satellite, USA 326.
>Wood, in his remarks, did not discuss how the U.S. government reached the conclusion that Cosmos 2576 is a counterspace weapon or what capabilities that satellite has. He did note that this launch “follows prior Russian satellite launches likely of counterspace systems to low Earth orbit in 2019 and 2022.”
>His remarks came during a debate by the Security Council on a resolution proposed by Russia that would seek to ban the placement of weapons of any kind in space. Russia offered the resolution after it vetoed April 24 a resolution offered by Japan and the United States seeking to reaffirm provisions of the Outer Space Treaty banning the placement of weapons in outer space, a resolution prompted by reports that Russia is developing a nuclear anti-satellite weapon.
>Vasily Nebenzya, Russia’s ambassador to the United Nations, argued that the Russian resolution was more comprehensive. “Today’s vote is a unique moment of truth for our Western colleagues,” he said. “If they fail to support this, then they will clearly show that their main priority remains keeping the freedom for themselves to expedite the militarization of outer space.”
>He briefly responded to Wood’s claims that Cosmos 2576 was an anti-satellite weapon. “Now, just now, the U.S. representative referred to some kind of satellite which, in his opinion, once again in a highly likely style, can be likely, possibly, placed on a nuclear engine. I didn’t even understand what he was talking about,” he said. “But that’s not what is important.”
>Wood, in his remarks, did not claim the new Russian satellite was a nuclear weapon or was nuclear powered, and U.S. officials have previously said they do not believe Russia has yet deployed a nuclear weapon in space.
>Wood and representatives of other Western nations said they opposed the Russian resolution because of long-standing concerns about the difficulties verifying a ban on weapons in space. They also alleged that Russia did not act in good faith in negotiations about its resolution, with Wood calling the resolution the “culmination of Russia’s campaign of diplomatic gaslighting and dissembling.”
>The Security Council did not approve Russia’s resolution, with 7 of 15 members, including Russia and China, voting in favor of it. Seven other nations, including France, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States, voted against it. Switzerland abstained.

The first pic is quite interesting, because that seems to be a ZPU-1, which is a 14.5mm KPV on a towed mount, but that position seems to be set up to fire at ground targets. But then it doesn't strike as a place that would offer any serious cover against either direct or indirect fire. But they also clearly put at least some effort into making that position, it looks like they removed the earth with an excavator, put some logs under the gun, and set up a camo net. I just don't get it, but I can see why they would abandon that place once the enemy is nearby.

The Kharkov offensive got bogged down rather quickly, but it looks like this forced the Ukrainians to redeploy forces from all across the frontline, and it shows, because Russians are making small and steady gains nearly everywhere else. Rumours say they are gathering forces further north to open yet one more frontline. If they have the forces to spare, then they really should keep opening new ones from Belarus too, even if they don't plan on making any significant territorial gains.

 Could be any one of these, or their combination:
Maybe there are more roads for pickups up north, or less open areas where a pickup would be too big a target.
If there are less trenches and drone operators around Kharkov then they might feel that putting that many eggs into one basket is safe.
Bikes are smaller, so it's easier to bring them to the front, and they also require less fuel, so their logistical footprint is smaller. The Kharkov front is still quite far away from Kharkov, they barely left Russia, so they can drive trucks directly to the front.

Western intelligence agencies suggest Ukraine will face "large territorial losses" this year.

>Details: The article states that the "overall picture" for Ukraine at the moment looks bleak due to Russia's superiority.
>The intelligence assessment says Kyiv is not expected to be able to "seize the initiative" in 2024. By the end of the year, Ukraine is likely to suffer "significantly greater territorial losses" than it already had since January.
>The Russians are relying on artillery much more heavily than the Ukrainians, and above all, Russia can "more than compensate" for its losses. Kyiv, on the other hand, is unable to call up enough new soldiers "to compensate for losses and create reserves". The new conscription rules "will have an impact only in late summer", as recruits must first undergo training.
>This assessment attributed the expected loss of territory by Ukraine to the current "defensive orientation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the resulting prolongation of fighting". Ukraine wants to "preserve personnel" and is currently "buying time by ceding territory". Kyiv hopes this will give it "time to mobilise and restore its defence industrial base (DIB). However, Russia's airstrikes on Ukraine's DIB could become a problem.
>Roderich Kiesewetter, a member of the opposition Christlich Demokratische Union Deutschlands (CDU or Christian Democratic Union of Germany) party and Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Committee for Oversight of the Intelligence Services, confirmed that Ukraine has problems with ammunition and conscription.
>However, the official further said that "pessimistic reports about the situation are being spread", apparently with the aim of "showing that the situation is hopeless and that military support no longer makes sense". The aim is to "subtly but brutally" pressure Kyiv to "cede territory".
>Kiesewetter commented on this intelligence assessment, saying that Ukraine can "continue to win", but "every delay in support" from Germany and other countries will make it more difficult and expensive.
>Ralf Stegner, a member of Germany's ruling Sozialdemokratische Partei Deutschlands (SPD or Social Democratic Party) and the oversight committee, said, however, that "in essence," the intelligence services' assessment was correct and "in line with what I know".
>Stegner said Ukraine's failed offensive last year showed that "we can and should prevent Ukraine's defeat, but we cannot ensure its victory". Anyone who continues to demand that "weapon A be delivered faster, and weapon B be delivered in even greater quantities" is, in his opinion, chasing illusions. "Constantly increasing the dose when the medicine does not work is not convincing," the lawmaker added.
>He believes that the narrative of the hopelessness of Ukraine's resistance can only be overcome when Chancellor Olaf Scholz's slogan that Ukraine will be helped "as long as it takes" is replaced by an "all-inclusive" approach. For example, Ukraine should be allowed to use Western weapons to attack Russian production sites, warehouses and transshipment points in Russia itself. Stegner added that red lines should disappear, and arms production should be accelerated.
>Anton Hofreiter, a politician from the German Green Party, called for no longer preventing Ukraine from attacking Russian territory with Western weapons.
>NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg believes it is high time for some allies to reconsider restrictions on the use of weapons provided to Ukraine against targets in Russia.

probably the latter, the Ukrainians are obsessed with crossing the Dnieper. You occasionally hear about it on Ukrainian telegram channels  they landed in krynky or some island near Kherson then go silent as if nothing ever happened. I suspect the Ukrainians are still  trying to cross in Kherson Oblast as we speak, It's been on and off 2 years like this.

Why not? Russians have managed to turn such formation into fairly effective assault units. We'll see what Ukrainians are capable of in this regard.

They only released a limited number of former soldiers with combat training and ideological conviction and formed the 'Tornado' battalion. The convict were treating POWs and civvies in Donbass so bad even Ukrainians locked them up, which is saying something.

A major ammo supplier to Ukraine says poor quality parts are impacting half the shells it's trying to deliver
>Central Europe's largest ammunition supplier said that quality and cost issues meant that half of the shells it's sourcing for Ukraine can't be sent directly to the country, according to the Financial Times.
>"Every week the price is going up and there are big issues with the components," Michal Strnad, CEO of Czechoslovak Group, or CSG, told the paper.
>"It's not an easy job," he added.
>CSG, which has been acquiring ammo on behalf of the Czech government for Ukraine, has found that supplies being brought in from Asia or Africa are often missing components, or need work, the paper reported.
>As such, the company is being forced to add missing components of its own, which has slowed delivery.
>Strnad told the paper the initiative is still "on track," with deliveries expected in June.
>Strnad's remarks came as five European leaders met in Prague on Tuesday to discuss plans to obtain 800,000 155 mm artillery shells from non-EU countries to send to Ukraine, Radio Free Europe reported.
>The $1.7 billion project is funded by 15 EU states as well as NATO, per the outlet.
>In a joint statement, the group of leaders said that half a million rounds of ammunition would be delivered by the end of the year.
>In January, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the war in Ukraine had "become a battle for ammunition."
>It's a message Strnad wishes Western leaders had taken on earlier.
>He told the FT that he had warned policymakers two years ago that the ready availability of ammunition would define the war, but says his message went unheard.
>"They didn't think that there could be some war where artillery would play the major role," he said. "Everybody thought about drones, artificial intelligence and new trends."
>Rapidly developing technologies such as drones and electronic warfare have indeed played a crucial role in the conflict. But Ukraine's inability to advance along the front line this year — and its losses — have been attributed to a chronic shortage of soldiers and ammunition.
>In April, the situation led one US veteran serving there to describe Russia as the "alpha predator" of the war, as Business Insider's Sinéad Baker reported.
>Ukraine has been forced to limit itself to firing 2,000 shells per day for much of this year, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
>And it's only been since mid-May that its forces have started to breathe more easily over their ability to expend shells, Zelenskyy said.
>Since the outbreak of Russia's full-scale invasion, CSG has derived much of its profits from supplying Ukrainian forces.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure there is a Russian saying that it's the mothers of Russia that will end a war.
I guess in this case it's the Ukrainian mothers.
Holy shit at this rate soon little Ukrainian girls will be dying even more because they'll be the next to be drafted. "To the Last Ukrainian" isn't even a joke anymore, apparently it's become fucking official policy.

>Russia's losses during the conflict are several times less than Ukraine's losses, Putin said

>There are 1,348 Russians in Ukrainian captivity, 6,465 Ukrainian soldiers are in Russian captivity

>The ratio of irretrievable losses of forces in the SMO of the Russian Federation and Ukraine is 1 to 5

>Mobilization in Ukraine is only to make up for losses.

>The United States insists on lowering the mobilization age threshold in Ukraine to 18 years, this is an “open secret”

>Ukrainian losses per month are approximately 50 thousand people (killed and wounded).

Keep in mind this was told by the warring side so the chance of it being all truth is basically zero. But it's interesing to see what Russia consider its position to be in this war so far.

Bradley AFV was destroyed near the village of Sokol west of Avdeevka
Yeah, right. Recruiters go last, otherwise their meat supply stops entirely.

ЕГЭ (Единый Государственный Экзамен, unified state exam) is a series of standard tests that russian kids have to pass at the end of school. It has been introduced a while ago to ape the german school system unify final exams and ease university entry by making grades from different regions comparable. There've been complaints about it from kids and parents ever since, mostly noting stupid questions, high stress spikes befor exam and its uselessness for uni entrance. It also caused a meme among russian normalfags that started to call dumb students "exam victims" (жертвы ЕГЭ). That is a draft motion to abolish this exam again.

I don't see how any of this could be related to the war.

maybe because it has the word "draft" and someone thought it was related to a war draft.

>"My father is kept in the basement, they do not pay money and do not allow him to quit for health reasons or transfer to another unit. He and 54 other men from 129 OBr TRO Krivoy Rog, on February 24, 2024, were transferred to 81 OAembr DSHV. At that time he had surgeries and rehabilitations, which later led to the worsening of his disability group! There are 55 such people there. The conclusion of the VVK - unfit for service in the DSHU,” - said Yarema.
>"Since March, he and the guys do not receive money. The report for dismissal for health reasons on disability is not considered, which is illegal. In fact, they are just hostages there. When the guys asked the MPP “what are you doing to resolve this situation?” the answer was “you shouldn't give a fuck”. The guys wrote a letter to the police, the VSP, the GBI. No response. Now asking for maximum publicity. They have been silent for more than 3 months. There was no action from the part."
>Yarema also published a video message of the servicemen who are allegedly being held in the basement of 81 OAEMbr DSHV.
