This thread is now into it's third year having started exactly 2 years ago yesterday 3 April @ 23:55hrs.

17 million views and 16 thousand replies.

Thank you to all contributors and especially to those important patrons who have kept the discussion going from the start. For me, this is by far the most informative general discussion on the war on the internet. Thanks again.

....

"Due to the delay of the allies, Ukraine is losing the most experienced pilots who could study on the F-16" - Major of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Vadim Voroshilov
While we wait, we will lose even more pilots. We had a list of the most experienced pilots who could be trained on the F-16, and, unfortunately, some of them have already died during the fighting.

She seems to still be sitting too close to guarantee her safety!

In the video you can hear the propagandist calling the girl to sit next to him, calling her Nastya (that's the name Daria Trepova introduced herself), and inviting her to sit next to him.

"I'm shy," the girl replied and sat on a chair near the window.

"Golden Vladlen. I'm much prettier here," Tatarsky said, looking at the bust, which, as it would turn out later, was stuffed with explosives.

After that, the video cuts to a black frame and the sound of a fire siren can be heard. Most likely it's an edited fragment of another video.

Video #4 from the T-junction. Lone tank close call with a near miss of some ATGM. Surprisingly they started to crush the trench with tracks it reminded me of old soviet era war movies.

Warning: graphic scenes.

It looks like Russia is starting to fall apart internally with armed factions wanting to do their own thing ..

Plenty to look at there:
The Kola Naval base, the submarine pens at Gadzhhiyevo, the Severmorsk base for the Northern fleet and just a few miles south from all that is the Olenegorsk Air Base which has bombers that are within range of Alaska.

That depends on whether or not they have small golden busts in stock.
