So now that both American and European tanks are on the way to Ukraine aswell as some of the best infantry vehicles and artillery piece's that doesn't leave much for Ukraine to get that they don't already. 

F16's, advanced attack helis and ATACMS. Hopefully in the next couple of months both are announced so we can finally get over the escalation scare mongering. They'll have received quality weapons and after that point the most important thing Will be supplying in sufficient quantity.

F16's won't make a huge difference as they'll not flying over Russian held territory but they'll help none the less. ATACMS are the last big game changer IMO. Weakon and destroy Russian ammo and vehicle depots far behind the frontlines.

I think the number of deaths is largely underreported as well.

Nearly a year in. So much death. This is utterly horrendous

I think it's 50/50 if Russia invades from Belarus. Very large amount of equipment and soldiers there now. Russia are clearly all in at this point they don't seem to car about preserving their equipment or soldiers for that matter. The current frontline they're already attacking fiercely at some points but the rest is very well defended so they might fancy another front altogether. 

If it happens I'm expecting serious losses for Russia and a sh*t load of equipment lost. Hopefully Ukraine target their stockpiles and bases in Belarus this time around if it happens.

Big news for Ukraine getting light armoured tanks from the US, France and Germany. Plus a patriot battery from Germany. Big upgrade and I'm sure they'll get more going forward. 

Not much left that they need now. ATACMS, fighter jets and main battle tanks. Now would be a good time for Russia to leave.

Which, I fear, is when the Russians will start thinking about nuclear options...


They can think about it but that's all they are likely to do unless Putin wants his regime come to an end.

In a separate note, double digit minus temperatures are on the way. Going to start hearing of lots of reports of soldiers freezing to death. Don't be surprised if the hard ground unlocks another Ukrainian offensive.

If the Russian MOD declared 63 dead from the HIMAR strike you can be guaranteed it's a hell of a lot higher. Did they ever acknowledge any deaths from the moskova?

The lack of successful hits, should Russia give up on country wide strikes and fire all 69 at one target like Kyiv instead? Hope to overwhelm the air defense..

Don't be giving postcode and his comrades any ideas. 

Postcode hasn't been on here since the 21st of December. Has he been mobilised to the front lines?

I randomly came across this video. Fascinating and far too funny for the subject matter. An English lad that sounds like a famous ex footballer's experience signing up to the Ukrainian foreign legion

Russia now losing ground around the outskirts of Bakhmut after throwing everything at it for months. If they don't throw in their reserves they'll be in trouble.
