    Nah.
    I already said what needs to be done.
    It will be sufficient if ruSScists just "fast forward" to the moment in the entire story, in which the dictator, sitting deep in his bunker, pulls the trigger, after cracking that cyanide pill.

    They say Putler is already involved in issuing orders to even relatively small units, and we all know well what damage to the German command did Hitler, by issuing orders on his own.

    So why don't they simply "fast forward".
    You know.
    Bunker.
    Cyanide.
    Walther PPK.
    Gasoline.
    Match.
    "Burn in hell, no one will miss you" as a farewell.

    You're failing to see the cause of this war: Putin's and Russia's imperialism.
    You're seeing everything through the lens of propaganda.
    Have the courtesy to go fuck yourself.

    I'm watching the news and informations from war and now, after 3 months I recognise that something break in morale of russian troops.

    Like steel, pulled and bended too many times... something crack.

    Maybe its because 3 months contracts expired, maybe too many losses in recent days, but I'm hearing steel cracking... The turning point is finally there.

    I just hope you're right.
    Otherwise we're facing a war of attrition here.
    The MLRS and HIMARS systems due to be delivered to Ukraine soon may change something in terms of balance of power.
    We (Poland) also delivered 18 KRAB howitzers - that's not much, but their range (and built in ballistic radars) can make the difference.

    This is no longer the antiquated T-72s (in their "M-monkey" versions) - that's state of the art artillery, Russia fields none of.

    I dont think its fake, there is only selective bias. They publish the most interesting calls, so its a mistake apply informations at whole russian army.

    It is too simple to write down any "captured calls" with anything you what to hear. And what I heard in this "calls" sometimes is complete bullshit, that no one will discuss by the phone (discussions of raping with mother, boasting about loot, very strange loot sometimes). Form of talks often is not normal, people do not talk this way with the phone (non-russian listeners will not notice this weirdness, though). So, I finished listen this form of "information" couple of month ago. And advise you too.

    As I said, it's the selection of captured phone calls which fit in Ukranian propaganda. It could be wierd. I think 95% other calls are quite normal and not so extraordinary.

    Today I read some analyse about RF army failure. Interesting point, You have similar command structure as our army. A lot of officers and proffesional specialists, but very few infantry men (peace time). The advantage is in case of war You can easily fill these formations with recruits. But the problem is when You are trying to use the army in fast and hard conflict. You are under-infantried and the secret nature of operation doesn't give You a lot of time to improve your commanding structure.

    The result is You are losing heavy equipment because it is not approprietly supported by infantry, because the concept of army counted with recruits.
