Team USSR 2.0 really DOES seem to have an "information machine" - this from TASS (archived link to full TASS article here)....

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.


@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.

Warning, though, @Soldier35 - the new job may involve more travel to newly liberated (and still-to-be-liberated) parts of Ukraine ;)

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)...
... 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 ...
Remember these posters from WW2?

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...

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.

Interesting appreciation of the situation by the British Forces network


Two observations - "not infantry...blokes with rifles"

And this

Lots of tubes.
Lots of rounds.
Effective?
