NATO meat puppets.

Dying and losing limbs by the thousands so NATO can absorb Ukrainian farmland and Hunter Biden can get another juicy appointment on a Board of Directors.

Russia is set to increase defence spending to almost 10.8 trillion roubles ($111.15bn) in 2024.
Gosh, of they do that CBC might have to look at their budget if Canada wants to fight to the last Canadian dollar.

Amazing really, that billion is about 2% of the annual defence budget, so significant indeed.

We are very lucky really that Uncle Sam protects us so we can cheap out on defense.

Looking at the US budget politics right now you have to think the Ukie gravy train is going off the rails. How will Blinken/Nuland squeeze another $24bil out of Congress now?

Pavel Gubarev, former "People's Governor" of the Donetsk region, speaks about the war in Ukraine and the future of Russia. Sorry folks, he's not saying anything you want to hear.

Harsh, maybe realistic words.

Russia will either win or be destroyed.
I pick the former.
Russia in the first and second world wars had no regard for it's own soldiers. If a million soldiers needed to die in order to kill 100,00 enemy, so be it. The end justifies the means.

And this will hold true in the present war.

Either Russia will disappear or Ukraine will disappear.

Nah, Russia will demilitarize and denazify Ukraine, the parts not directly annexed will be a neutral state. Done.

Also FWIW the whole "Russian Steamroller" thing has been pretty much debunked, try David Glantz for reference to WW2.

Meh, it's realistic enough - unless you take your understanding of modern day Russia from the tribal US Conservative fringes. Imperialism, that's all it's ever been about and it doesn't end in Ukraine.

That's been clear since long before 2014.



Russia will be around at the end of this - the Federation? Probably not so much.

When Poland references Ukranian losses as "cheap price to pay to fight Russia" you know what's really going on lol.

Ukraine being used as cannon fodder.

Nobody cares about them.

Ukraine lost 17000 troops in September alone in the pathetic counter-offensive. Ukraine will lose badly

I love the irony of the world's biggest empire accusing others of imperialism... for defending their interests in a country which the world empire invaded [icon_lol2.gif]
