  1. Meanwhile... In Simferopol water reservoirs only 14-15 % of water left, more critical situation with Ayan water reservoir, which also feeds this city and it outskirts - only 8% of water remained and pumping from it has termianated.

  2. Better to see the other link, pointed in this article, where author writes about tanks by type in each tank unit: https://gurkhan.blogspot.com/2020/09/blog-post_13.html From this article we can see most tank units of Western and Sourthern districts on Ukrainian direction to 2017 year (timeline of the game) already had T-72B3 and even B3M on armament, not counting T-90A and T-80U/BV. And from this article I can't understand where all these 1135 T-72B in service if most units pointed like owners of modernized/new tanks on 2020 year. Maybe this can be explained that some number of them
  3. I read Russian forum and some people, former Russian volunteers, who were DNR fighters told their rifle thermal sights were significantly degrading when they tried to spot infantry on the background of summer forest. Detection range was shortening to 150-200 m and thermal image was too hard to recognize. Though they told about civil models of Russian or Belarusian thermal sights, which they could buy.
  4. Meanwhile, even in Sevastopol, where situation with water was better than in other parts of Crimea, local occupatin authorities have introduced the regime of high alert, due to shortening of water reserves - the water left only for 81 days. https://ria.ru/20201013/voda-1579652133.html Kremlin give to the Crimea additional 5 billions of rubles for "water problem", but all what can do local puppets - to drill new artesian wells, which give only short-time effect and to dig new water reservoir for Sevastopol purpose, but for this needs to block the small river - this will cut off villag
  5. The post of twitter account Bottema37: Even when the ships aren't on AIS you can find something interesting, it just take more time All is done on size and colour of the ships found, and of course other OSINT sources like Twitter.
  6. HMS Dragon destroyer enters the Black Sea, substituting US DDG-80 Roosevelt destroyer and HMS H88 Enterpise SVHO
  7. Not about Russian army directly, but about Russian weapon. Azerbajdzhanian T-90S, export version of T-90 mod.1992 (but with welded turret like on T-90A) was hit by Armenian ATGM, probably AT-4C/AT-5. The missile hit in the front turret, ERA activated properly. But looks like the missile and ERA explosions have damaged optic on the turret, also, probably, the crew panicked - they abandoned own tank, which could drive yet and fled. The tank was seized by Armenians.
  8. The hystory has a trend to develop in a spiral %) In that times not only Crimea was under Russian Empire rule, but also for example Poland and Finland %)
  9. This topic should be just names "Will Russia attack Ukraine?" and all. Before 2014 Ukrainian high-ranked militaries just laughed and weaved off, when some politics told them about Russian threat: "The war with Russia? Man, are you crazy? This is impossible! We are all finished the same Soviet military academies!" Well... 2014 came. You now, all this B-52 in the Ukrainian skies, British papratroopers in steppes, NATO ships in Black Sea and many other movements from the side of US and UK - all this need many efforts, many resourses, many money. So, US intelligence, not only "retired
  10. Another video of UK 16th air-assault brigade dropping
  11. Poland and Baltic states. Four B-52 were in the sky.
  12. Todays US/UK activity spotted not only over Ukraine, but also near Balarus and Georgia. Russia moved to Belarus additional forces of VDV for maneuvers - BTG in 900 men crossed the border recently. While three B-52H were busy over Ukraine, the forth approached to Belarus borders or Kaliningrad oblast of Russia from the Poland airspace, simulated launches and turned back Over Georgia US jet CL-600 Artemis not only passed along the Russia border, but entered in airspace over occupied Abkhazia (the Abkhazia-Georgia border is marked by bright red line) Cold war 2.0
  13. Hm... Why 8? Caucasus-2020 has already begun. Russians already without a war lost Su-30, accidentally hit with Su-35 gun, KAMAZ command vehicle and T-90A Well done! If seriously, the situation with water in Crimea is becoming more critical day by day, so the "threat window" for us can be longer than time of maneuvers, for example until new US president takes office. About hour ago B-52H entered in UKR airspace, procceded to Odesa, where possibly simulated missile launches on Russian facilities in Crimea and flew to Romania. UKR fighters escorted There are many
  14. The pair of Ospreys from 352nd Special operation wing over Kyiv. US and UKR SOF troopers are conducting maneuvers around largest Ukrainian cities.
  15. Like that guy from Donetsk car service? We lost Crimea and part of Donbas not because there were most pro-Russian people, but because there were most of "indifferent middlebrows" , which thought they would follow own interests and nothing change for them. Defense of own territory, own culture etc is not nationalism. It is healty reaction of organism, which names "the state". The states like authorities and (or) societies, which havn't a will to resist the inner or outer threats very soon can loss own identity if their neighbours have expansionistic plans and imperial phantom pains.
