There were shots of the retreat of individual units of the Ukrainian army from the territory of the Red Estuary. The settlement of Krasny Liman is of strategic importance in Ukraine, since it opens up directions for advancing towards Slavyansk with Kramatorsk and towards the grouping of Kiev forces concentrated near Lisichansk and Severodonetsk.
Warning, though, @Soldier35 - the new job may involve more travel to newly liberated (and still-to-be-liberated) parts of Ukraine@Soldier35 You seem to have a better grasp of tactics than Gen. Gerasimov.
Perhaps if you let us know who your supervisor is, we can put in a good word for you, and you could get a promotion?
We could start big…ask for your promotion to Colonel-General, and negotiate lower as required, hopefully nothing less than Major-General.
Are you up for it? You might even get a nice cottage in Sochi with the promotion. Let us know what you think.
And if you want to see what these rigs look like, St. Javelin shares a video peek via FB here.
But that NKVD look is what they should be going for. Nothing says I come in peace to liberate you like black leather.
This is why media shouldn't be allowed on the front lines
Assuming, of course, it was media that was doing the "dissemination" - after all, early on in the fight (day 13 or so), UKR's DefMin seemed to be talking to more than just the media about "loose lips sink ships" (links to Google translation of UKR statement)...This is why media shouldn't be allowed on the front lines
Remember these posters from WW2?... I appeal to everyone. Please do not spread the word that certain countries provide weapons to our country. Refrain from commenting on this. Reserve the right to speak on these topics only to officials.
I understand people's desire to share the good news. But sometimes it creates an informational background that negatively affects the result.
This can make it difficult for our army to gain additional capabilities that it simply needs to gain. As a result, Ukraine may suffer losses that we could have avoided and should avoid!
All information that can be published in agreement with the partners, we will be sure to publish in a timely manner. The enemy does not have to know what to expect. Let it be an unpleasant surprise for him ...
And it only takes one mouthy person pissed at a situation (lotsa people on all sides in that situation) beaking near someone who doesn't think the Russians are all that bad (whose population, let's not forget, is still above zero), right? Way more ways than just media for stuff to get out, like it or not.Society is now truly in a different age that WW2.
So many Military forces refuse to remove civilian comms from their soldiers that COMSEC issues about - just having a phone accessing a tower will give too much away in some situations.
It's much better to have no access in theater - or control via something like a Sat phone controlled by higher so communications can be managed -- snail mail was so much easier to censor...
How does one say "Fuck everyone and everything in that 1 km Grid Square" in Polish? I imagine there's a "kurwa" or two involved...
I guess Poland doesnt want Russia getting any ideas.
Can we get 50?
