I'd say unlikely, it is more or less ineffective against modern MBT's. More likely firing fragmenting HE against infantry. Which is nevertheless uncomfortable for the infantry.

Ukraine lead crowdfunding to buy live Scorpion tanks, though I doubt many remain as they were regunned, not sure about ammo either for it being 75mm

Is the MOD suggesting the General would be well advised to stay away from windows and stairs, to hire a food taster and to wash his own undies?

Those are special Russian guns designed to fire at both the enemy and your own troops

Isn't that the same location where we saw Russian troops advancing on embedded Ukrainians who managed to hold them off?

I thought the T junction of trees looked familiar, then I saw the raised circle in the distance - maybe a stock pond or something

If so, then it'd probably be the same trench too

Daily dose of Russian TV propaganda. Since they are doing so well liberating brothers in Ukraine they are looking to rinse and repeat in Finland.
Should be interesting.

It has become one of the best comedy shows on TV. Bound to win some awards!

How many Russki soldiers needed to destroy a Leopard just with shovels. ?

According to a popular Russian magazine, it is 2 000 ! See 3:00 in this video (link below )

At 5:00 he confirms that JDAM bombs have been received and already used and the Migs they are getting from Poland and Slovakia will also be able to be able to drop them.

If Russian political leadership is reaching the end of its tolerance for the failure of its General Staff to achieve a military victory in Ukraine......exactly what can they do to turn this debacle around and achieve that hoped for victory?

There is only so far they can go in "attacking" their own military leadership before the guns get turned around and those politicians start looking down the wrong end of the guns.

It would seem at that point.....Putin and his cronies might see a redux on how the Czar's Regime came to a rather ugly end.

The Ruzzians have to save their brotherly Finnish people, who are wanting to be liberated? What? BOTH of them?

actually, BOTH of those traitors are already in Russia, Johan Bšckman and Janus Putkonen. No need to liberate them anymore, and no need to return them either.

UKR has new missile with 280 km range.

Russian MoD has confirmed that the attack on Simferopol air-base was carried out with the new Ukrainian Grom-2 missile: this has 280 km range with a 500 kg war-head. It is not in the linked report, but another site is saying that the production is taking place in Poland. That's sure to make the Russkis happy. I hope they have good physical security around the plant.
