Ukraine Russia war NEWS

Post by alanjh595 »

I am setting this up separate from the other discussion forum to provide NEWS and UPDATES on what has now been considered a WAR.
My heart and support goes out to Ukraine and Ukrainians worldwide.

I ask that this thread be limited to news and information ONLY about the war in Ukraine.

If you have comments, please take them to the other pre-existing thread.

I am watching this unfold on 3 TVs 24/7 and there is a strategic method to their actions.

NATO can only protect other NATO countries, Ukraine is not a member of NATO.

NATO has dispatched it's "multi-national rapid response" troops to NATO countries surrounding Ukraine.
NATO partner countries are:
Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Finland, Georgia, Ireland, Kazakhstan, Kyrghyz Republic, Malta, The Republic of Moldova, Russia, Serbia, Sweden, Switzerland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan.
NATO MEMBER COUNTRIES
NATO is an Alliance that consists of 30 independent member countries. Country by country, this page offers an overview of the links to national information servers and to the website of national delegations to NATO.
https://www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/nato_countries.htm

There is a big difference between being a "member" and a "Partner"

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION

So this President would rather be dead than in exile somewhere else.

What's this plane up to?
A Northrop Grumman RQ-4 Global Hawk, flying at 54,900 ft.
No doubt feeding intelligence to the Ukraine army.

There's that Global Hawk, flew out of Sicily.
I can't imagine the amount of intelligence equipment on it.

Another American military aerial refueling aircraft.
Not sure who all they're refueling but there appears to be plenty of American military aircraft in the area.
This time it's a KC-10A Extender.

looks like russia is almost broke and if ukraine holds out for ten more days russia will have to give up because they will run out of supplies.


https://twitter.com/RihoTerras/status/1 ... J9fOxEzUQg

The war costs about $20 bln/day. There are rockets for 3-4 days at most, they use them sparingly. They lack weapons, the Tula and 2 Rotenberg plants can’t physically fulfil the orders for weapons. Rifles and ammo are the most they can do.
Russia’s whole plan relies on panic – that the civilians and armed forces surrender and Zelensky flees. They expect Kharkiv to surrender first so the other cities would follow suit to avoid bloodshed. The Russians are in shock of the fierce resistance they have encountered.

keep in mind when the west first invades they get opposition soldiers laying down weapons on mass cause they know whats coming. here though in ukraine, that isnt happening because the truth is, russia has nowhere near the military the west as in usa , british , france, etc etc has. not even close. what they do have is some nukes, without that russia is canada but bigger. useless in a big war.

Will the EU do it? Bring Ukraine in during a war with Russia? IMO only, seems like a naive request at this time.

nato has said that ukraine isnt joining nato any time soon. they would have to get russia in nato first. sweden an finland i could possibly see fast tracked maybe. people think nato is a club anyone can join doesnt know anything about nato or why it is a thing in the first place.
lets face some facts, the american could stop the russkies in one day , its clear that russias army is no match if they cant take ukraine in less than a week. lots of reports of russian troop morale low because their heart not in it , plus Ukraine shot down two russian transports in same day , that just under 500 russian soldiers dead where they landed. the russian soldiers alive still see that stuff or may have friends and family on them planes .
on other side, everyone is joining in on the fight, who towns in ukraine are in hidden locations making bombs for the troops to use. american special forces are tweeting that they would follow ukrainian soldiers into battle in a heart beat. that says alot to anyone that knows the pride the american special forces have inside themselves.
