Level of training, quality of person, and equipment varies. You should know that. Would you compare a Navy Seal to a rank and file Private?
Well, that's another argument.

Seal, Ranger and SOF have extra training (I went thru Airborne School and Ranger School myself) so that of course is different than a 88M who just went thru Basic or maybe AIT. That is a different argument you are raising tho, you are saying they are Chechen or Militia so they are second rated. Well, it's like saying Army Reservist or a National Guard, who underwent the same Basic and AIT are any different than Regular Army or An Army private from Idaho who going to have the same training and AIT than a Puerto Rican or Guamanian would be different.

Or are you saying Russia are trained to a different regime than Chechen?

He is not Al Qaeda or Muslim Brotherhood. He is from FSA a Syrian whose country got destroyed by Russians. You hindi second hand Muslim won't understand it.

I agree there have been actual formerly government-side Syrians in the so-called FSA like the former cosmonaut Muhammed Faris and the army officer Salim Idris but the so-called FSA is mostly composed of Syrian "M"B, non-Syrian "M"B and AQ. And you cannot deny that to this humble "Hindi Second-hand Muslim".

Typical Brainwashed Indian racist post

Essentially you are posting about infighting among the criminals. :lol: Check this from your link :
Word of Abu TOW's arrest sparked a street protest on Thursday in the northwestern city of Azaz.

"The Syrian revolution will not end up trading a tyrannic secular regime for a tyrannic religious regime," one protester said.
They are confused people at best. So if they don't want a Socialist system and they don't want a Western-government-supported mullah system what do they want ?

Because Russians know they are no fighting Nato or US and Russia airforce will control the skies, it's the fastest way to move their troops and equipments, surely they did the necessary analysis and make every maneuver on case by case basis. Judging from the overall result, it's not a bad move at all.
You do know the Ukrainian did intercept this convoy, right?

Second of all, Russia is NOT controlling the sky, that's a problem and even if they do, you still don't travel like this, a well placed MLRS hit in the first 4 vehicles in a formation like this will make them hard to get out and they are going to get stuck. You don't need a fighter jet, or any air support, you just need to have a dude hiding inside some bush talking to an artillery operator that can bring fire into the area. And trust me, they are 30 km from Kyiv, a lot of Artillery inside Kyiv that can hit that convoy

As I said, no one travel like that, this is taught AGAINST in the US military, Sure, you move from inside Russia or I can excuse it on Belarus, but not in enemy territories, you watch your convoy spacing.

I think reports of European weapons and now aircrafts to Ukraine are part of the Fake News and unreliable. .. this is exactly because of the reasons you mentioned. Russia has made it clear that any interference against their campaign in Ukraine will be an escalation and direct conflict with Russia.

The European will not take that step... At least for now. They are only relying on economic warfare through sanctions.

Putin knows he has limited time on his hands to achieve the objectives in Europe before it becomes unbearable for Russia to continue.

So expect the Russians to gain as much ground as possible before everyone sitting on the negotiation table.

The only wildcard is that wars are unpredictable and once begun... Even with intentions of limited scale.. can easily get out of hand and beyond the initial intent.....

I say this... Without a dog in the fight.... But the best thing to happen for world Peace is for the Ukrainians to lose and that will enable Russia to come to the negotiation table having saved face and in turn to be "reasonable". The longer the Ukrainians resist and cause damage to the Russians... They closer the world inches towards total war.

US drones flew overhead as Ukraine attacked Russian ships: Moscow​

Russia’s Defense Ministry has pointed to the likely presence of US drones in the air directing an attempted attack on the Russian Black Sea Fleet by Ukrainian gunboats.
"I would like to point special attention to the fact that during the attack by Ukrainian vessels, strategic US RQ-4 Global Hawk and MQ9A Reaper unmanned aerial vehicles were loitering over the area," said Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov in a briefing Saturday, Sputnik News reported.
"There is a strong likelihood that it was the American UAVs that directed Ukrainian boats at the ships of the Russian Black Sea Fleet," Konashenkov added, referring to an operation carried out on Friday night.
According to the official, 16 Ukrainian Navy gunboats using 'swarm tactics' attempted to attack Russian warships near Zmiinyi Island (Snake Island) off Odessa, southwestern Ukraine on Friday night during the evacuation of 82 Ukrainian Border Guard servicemen that surrendered to Russian forces off the island.
Konashenkov further explained that some of the Ukrainian boats attempted to use civilian vessels as cover, adding that during the ensuing battle, six of the Ukrainian boats were destroyed.
He then emphasized that none of the 82 Ukrainian servicemen retrieved from Zmiinyi Island were injured.
According to the report, the reported bravery of the Ukrainian garrison on Zmiinyi soon became the subject of an internet lore, with an audio clip of Ukrainian troops telling a Russian warship to "go f*** yourself" accompanied with reports that all 13 defenders of the island were mowed down by the Russians spread on social media and by news outlets.

Ukrainian authorities then decided to honor the island's defenders with the Hero of Ukraine award.
However, on Saturday, the Russian military published footage showing 82 Ukrainian military personnel disembarking in Sevastopol, Crimea and being distributed field rations before being put on buses and sent home.
"They laid down their arms and decided to return to their families," said Maj. Gen. Mikhail Yasnikov, deputy commander of the Black Sea Fleet for logistics, added that a safe corridor was provided for them to leave the area of Russia's military operation.
Meanwhile, Moscow had put its military operation in Ukraine on hold Friday afternoon after Kiev announced its readiness to negotiate, but resumed it on Saturday after Kiev rejected talks on the grounds that the conditions weren't right.

Western attitude like this makes me say, "well then, let's hope they just nuke each other off then!"... But the humanity in me says, "no, they are human and deserve dignity."... Perhaps it's our brown skin that is full of love and respect for all... Versus the gas chambers and extermination of natives they have in their blood.

Russia needs to declare a wide no-fly-zone around Ukraine and say anyone flying into that region will be shot down and would be an act of war.

If it was the American tanks they would simply crush everything and go where ever. :lol:

Well, you want to know what is wrong with Russia offence? Just look at this picture

View attachment 819443
This is what's wrong with the Russian offensive.

Bear in mind, this picture were made during the day on day 4 and it was moving down to Kyiv with Ukraine Air Force still sortie. I bet @gambit would be drooling over this big juicy target when he is flying his F-16, If it was me, I would call in Fast Air and Artillery on the head of column, not only they move in a nice double file manner, they move between obstacle and slow. This is a big giant sign that said "Hit me".

This should never have happened on enemy territories. This is not acceptable in US standard, this is not acceptable in Russian standard, probably even Somalian standard. You don't move your troop during the day, you don't move in enemy territories in a single or double file, you don't move a 4 km convoy in an entire length.
Dont u think the Russian military would know this, this is something an imbecile 3 yr old would know, the only plausible explanation as to why they would move towards Kyiv like this is that they dont expect to be attacked via air, this could mean that they have air superiority over regions of Ukarine if not all of the country. With all the fake info floating around, one would have to take educated guesses to figure stuff out and it seems Russia has air superiority over that region atleast.

I am really busy these days, but you need to understand and decide on whether Russia is actually fighting on your side. Even the western media had to report a little bit.... Talking about denazification, as Putin indicated.... This is a Washington Post article from 2017


"

"Giuseppe Donene’s T-shirt echoes a Nazi-era war flag, emblazoned with the word “Hatred.” Despite his extreme ideology, he is disarmingly affable. What prompted him to enlist? “This is Europe, my house. But governments don’t let us fight,” he says. He complains that Europe is losing its identity to Muslims and African immigrants, and maintains that eastern Ukraine is the place to take a stand. “Something big’s happening here. It’s worth fighting for.” This 47-year-old married father of two has worked in private security in Angola, Iraq, Sudan and Syria. Every few months, he takes leave to join pro-Ukrainian battalions. “My family don’t support me, but they try to understand,” he says. “It’s tough, though. An eternal conflict.” He doesn’t worry that his presence could lend credence to the Kremlin line about fascists fighting for Ukraine. "

"

Why the hell is no one informed enough to even mention it? Why is everyone sleeping... This region was a Muslim majority at one point (definitely the Crimea was ). Like I said I don't have time these days, and wanted to latch on to some source that would keep me informed without spending too much time, but there simply isn't anyone out there. It took me less than 5 mins on google to find this... I know its not being reported but anyone who know a little something would know where to look.

You don't need to attack them by air, Russia does not take a lot of ground around Kyiv, there are artillery deployed along. You don't need fast air, a single artillery regiment (15 guns) with a spotter hiding somewhere would reek havoc to this convoy. You don't need to hit the entire length of the convoy, you only need to hit the head of the convoy, it would stop, Because there are like 1000 tanks and truck in there tightly pack without spacing, you can't reverse 1000 tanks and trucks at the same time.

And Russia does not even have total air superiority anyway, Ukrainian still launch sortie and I am pretty sure Ukraine did intercept this convoy.

Again doesnt seem plausible, it is a mistake not even some rag tag militia would make let alone the Russian military, the only explanation is that there are no Ukranian assets in the Area that could threaten this convoy air or otherwise kyiv is supposed to be almost surrounded by now, the only thing that makes sense is what i am speculating.

What you're describing is a coping mechanism for those blinded by Biden's failures. This would never have happened if Biden didn't leave Afghanistan like that OR if Trump was still president.
