The Ukrainian have enough troop in the south to take Kherson, as long as they prep the city with artillery fire or rocket. There are 6 Brigade in the Kherson bridgehead on the Western Side of the Inhulet. The thing is, Ukraine stopped for some reason. They hasn't move since 9-10 and even they moved 3 Artillery Regiment in the area, they don't do much except taking out bridge and ammo dump or HQ. That's prepatory work and mostly try to keep the Russian in their heels. The conclusion I have is they don't want to destroy Kherson city (They can literally flatten the city with the 3 Artillery Regiment now) and they decided to wait until their Eastern Flank took Nova Karkova and encircle the Russian force there.

Seems that Nova Khakovka is the prize, opens up the road to Kherson Oblast on the other side of the river and also the rest of Zaphorizia.

I belive Dudchane push was to make for a defensible flank for a further push.

You see on the map, it's located next to a large impassable marshland.

Also, it was an ideal point to push RU forces against.

I bet, few RU commanders did unknowingly retreat their units into marshes.
One thing I don't understand is Why Ukraine still have regular Brigade posted near Kyiv. I have counted 6 TDF/National Guard Brigade from Ratne to Chernihiv. 4 facing the Belarussian border and 2 National Guard and Special Brigade in Kyiv itself. And they still have 2 Mechanised brigades in reserve SE of Kyiv and SW of Zhytomyr (62 Mech and 110 Mech) .

There were only a few Belarussian unit facing them and no Russian unit in sight, it would be quite stupid to cross the line as per situation now. Why not just deploy the 2 Mechanised Brigade south to take Kherson? I don't think they are there to R&R as they have been in their position for more than 3 months. Are the Ukrainian expecting something in the Belarussian border?

US gains the most from this conflict and blowing up Nord Stream....

Russians are being mocked and laughed at - but they will extract their pound of flesh from US and Europe for sure. Russians will make sure that war gets dragged on (Ukraine gets paralysed for ever) and if possible, expand to other European states. Russians have a history of fierce counter attack...War ain't ending soon. Celebrations here are childish.

By the way, Russians should be grateful to Muslim Chechens...Only they seem to be doing heavy fighting with ferocity - no drinking, no fear - just straight marching into battlefield.

Europe has become a battlefield now - Noticeable moment in history !!!

Meanwhile, Look at this...


Bhaijaan, at the moment Russia can't even hold on to what they had for months. How will they drag the war?? Loosing material and men is not easy to overcome especially when you can't even manufacture replacements because of sanctions.

I'm sure they will still try to smuggle in chips etc but on what scale. They can't even place those mobilized into uniforms because they disappeared....

Yet to see a breakthrough by the chechens, they seem to be chilling in the behind the remaining russian fodder.


Corruption will end this sooner than we think.

Lesson for Pakistani faujis...

Well, they need to take Nova Karkova to stop the water from flowing into Crimea. That's the reason why Russia take the town early on.

But that's should have been independent from attacking Kherson. As I said, they already have the strength to get it move on, but they didn't, and in fact, they are taking hit by staying static instead of moving forward, they are waiting on something that they are willing to take hit for, something bigger than Nova Karkova I would assume.

Only few realise in what situation this world has come into.

Russians are facing the whole might of West. They will do mistakes or face the brunt but that doesn't mean they will kneel down while in war.

I have a question , how many jets and helicopters Russia producing yearly to make up for the loss and damaged jets and rotary planes . If they are producing a good amount then the loss don't matter much

Attack helicopters about 50 in peace time, about 100 in war time. Fighter jets about 25 in peace time, about 50 in war time. Tanks about 100 in peace time, about 200 in war time.

Production should exceed losses in war time.

Russians are facing the whole might of West.

Not really. Just from the US. The US want hegemony and views Russia as threat because Russia does not kow tow to the US.

Crimea has sufficient water desalinisation. Considering it only has 2 million people compared to Israel's 9 million which has far higher population density.

They have to guard against possible Polish invasion. Western Ukraine used to be Polish land until USSR invaded Poland in 1939 and annexed it, which brought Ukraine's population from 33 million pre annexation to 40 million post annexation. Poland is a NATO country and considering Ukraine is not allowed in NATO Poland remains a threat to Ukraine. Recently, Poland has been arming heavily to an unusual degree. Who knows what Poland's intention is. There's an old saying. Beware of the wolf bearing gifts.

based on what? your random azz opinion? lmao.

if Russia's armed forces are so degraded then why does it have 800 aircraft parked close to Ukraine's territory at this moment? That doesnt sounded degraded to me, and that is just one aspect of Russia's military, but this also doesnt mean i am denying Russia has lost military equipment, but Russia being a top weapons producer also means that Russia can replenish stocks faster and more affordably (local production reduces costs vs importing @ with foreign currencies).
Parked, not flying? In the USAF, or any air force for that matter, it takes at least one yr to certify a maintenance specialist, assuming a high school graduate for now. The assembly line for an F-16 is 6-9 months. Now, how long do you think it takes to train a combat pilot?

British Army training turn Ukrainian into TDF.

That's 2 Division worth of men a year (the Col said 10,000 Ukrainian walk thru this training in the last 6 months). By the way, and the same training regime happened in Poland, Germany, Norway, US and Canada. That mean preimum overseas training provided more than 100,000 TDF troop a year turning Civilian into Soldier with quality training.

Compare to this

Worry about us later. First, try to settle this mess. Realistically, Russia wouldn't touch the US unless it's a last resort. So I'll try and settle the score with Europe first.
It is childish to believe that Russia will allow the US to use nuclear weapons against Russia without retaliating.

That's good enough, but I haven't witnessed massive bombardment by the Russians it's only artillery or some MRLS no carpet bombing no mother of all bombs , they need to use heavy fire power eradicate the mercernaries over a larger area tanks and artillery not enough , where is carpet bombing ?

Grandpas are past the age of reproduction. They do not produce future soldiers for the nation. So they are expendable. Young men are scarce in Ukraine which has an aging declining population. Losing young men would be catastrophic for Ukraine which already has birth rate lower than pandas.
About 11 million Ukrainians have already fled Ukraine to europian countries , it's mostly the mercenaries are fighting with nato weapons and satellite guidance and armaments
