Russian army starting to run out of supplies…

The Russian Ministry of Defense has severely decreased the supply for Russian troops in Ukraine to a level that even Pro-Russian sources are fuming. They are suspecting corruption.

I believe that this is no "decrease" but the reality that those supplies are long gone and sold.

There is even a photo of the action on Wiki:

i already mentioned similar earlier, apparently whoever was in charge of purchasing the war stocks purchased one lot, he pocketed the rest of the funds then when a depot was to be inspected he shipped it all into it, then moved it on after the inspection to the next depot to be inspected .
Thus it appeared they were all full. After all, who would have thought they would ever have a full blown war again.

The wicked witch of State media who lives a comfortable rich life in Moscow preaching to the Russian mobilised while she enjoys all the trappings of the West, nanny for the children etc.

Hats off to the Doctor though.

Russia bragging about “rehoming” a couple of deaf and dumb guys, I suppose this looks good to three quarters of Russias population.

Not disputing your information, but does recoil actually affect accuracy? I would have thought the shell would be long gone by the time recoil happens.

AFAK these things dig themselves in before firing, so that the ground absorbs the recoil. On a barge the oggin around will be displaced as the recoil forces the barge down and the barge will not necessarily come up in the same spot.
A similar problem occurs with NGS, varying with the relative bearing and elevation of the gun but
there the ship is moving any way so the gun systems calculate accordingly.

Few doctors, no medical equipment, no drugs…..

Mobilised Russians in Sverdlovsk region are suffering from a mass outbreak of infectious disease, but doctors are unable to treat them due to a lack of equipment and medicine. This is likely the result of overcrowded, insanitary conditions at their training area...

Where terminal guidance would make a bit of a difference. Presumably the navy has taken the opportunity to upgrade their gunnery systems in such a manner... tied in with targeting drones, a bracketing of a CMG would be a bit of an upgrade. Due to the time of flight, updating or illumination would be handy.

Ukrainian Spec Ops we’re apparently responsible for killing all the Iraninian instructors in Crimea.

Due to Lukashenko’s refusal to participate in the war in Ukraine information has leaked that there are preparations for an assassination of Lukashenko.

The plan is to kill him and have him replaced by CSTO Sec -Gen Stanislav Zas who will then surrender the Belarus’ army to Putin.

That would get you a slot in the car park, even if there had not been one previously.
