DIARIO DI GUERRA (GIORNO 70): VOCI DI COLPO DI STATO IN RUSSIA. E ZELENSKY RIVUOLE LA CRIMEA

guerra in #Ucraina, giudicandola un tragico errore strategico.
"Molto preoccupato": così viene descritto #Putin dalle fonti occidentali che corroborano questo scenario; impegnato a rafforzare le misure di sicurezza dentro e fuori il Cremlino.

Quanto vi sia di vero è impossibile dire. La storia recente dice che è più facile si tratti di wishful thinking occidentale.
Ben più concreto è quanto accade sul campo di battaglia, dove una significativa controffensiva 🇺🇦 ha spinto le forze 🇷🇺circa 40 km a est di #Kharkiv.

It's a bit unfair to compare MANPADS (#Javelin) to a squad-level weapon (#Stugna) -
- but yeah there seems to be a *gap* in the known & observed effectiveness.

#RedEffect delivers:

2/
The Stugna (aka #Skif) #ATGM system is pretty neat, especially for defenses, static warfare & prepared ambushes. Also has a vehicular derivative for mobile warfare - a remotely controlled station courtesy of yet another #Ukraine-#Turkey cooperation.

#Rusya, #Kiev taarruzundan vazgeçip çekiliyor mu? '1. Rus - Çeçen Savaşı' kendini tekrar mı etti? THREAD, Dr. Can Kasapoglu;
1)#Ukrayna'nın hızla düşeceğini öngören hatalı değerlendirmeler gibi, Rusya'nın tamamen kaybettiğini vurgulayan yorumlara da ihtiyatla yaklaşılmalı.+
2) Şurası kesin, #Rusya'nın, kuzey sektöründe verdiği kayıplara karşın ilerlemesi son derece sınırlı oldu. Başkent #Kiev, bir ay geçmesine karşın hala tam olarak kuşatılamadı. #Ukrayna'ya silah sevkıyatının önüne geçilemedi. Ukrayna Silahlı Kuvvetleri ve halkı direndi.+
3) Gelinen durumun birkaç nedeni var. a) Güdümlü anti-tank sistemlerinin (#Javelin & #NLAW) taktik birliklerle oynak savunma yapan ve rezervleri seferber eden #Ukrayna için, Rus manevra birlikleri karşısında sağladığı asimetrik avantaj önemli idi+

Tytułem strat na #Ukraina w #WarInUkraine, SZU tracą spore ilości broni ciężkiej. Na ogół tego nie widzimy (poza może @oryxspioenkop który śledzi materiały foto i wideo), ale te straty są. Nie tak ciężkie zapewne, jak chce 🇷🇺 agresor, ale mimo wszystko SZU nie mają bezdennych 1/X
zapasów. Czym je uzupełnić? W innych warunkach mogliby pewnie kontynuować remonty własnych czołgów, pewne zapasy mieli. Ile tych zapasów ewakuowano na Zachód i ilu nie zniszczyli 🇷🇺? Nie wiadomo. Nie ma natomiast za bardzo gdzie ich remontować: Charków zrównany z ziemią, 2/X
Żytomierz ostrzelany, jak Lwów-nie wiem, ale ryzyko zniszczenia jest duże. Poza #Ukraina nie ma komu obsługiwać lokalnie podstawowych T-64, więc za granicą najwyżej T-72. Trochę pomaga zapewne zdobycz wojenna, bo Ukraińcy zdobywają sporo (lecz nie setki) T-72B3, T-80BWM 3/X

'Meanwhile, Western countries continue to pump Ukraine with weapons.
The head of the British Ministry of Defence said today that arms supplies to #Ukraine will continue.

Seit gestern Nacht gibt es nördlich von #Donezk schwere Gefechte und Luftangriffe.
Alles weist daraufhin, dass die russ. Truppen einen Durchbruch der Verteidigungslinien bei #Horliwka Richtung Pokrowsk versuchen, um einen Keil in die ukr. Armeegruppierung hineinzutreiben.
(2/24)
Gleichzeitig dazu fliegt die russische Luftwaffe umfangreiche Luftangriffe nahe #Kramatorsk .
Dort liegen nicht nur die Befehlsstäbe der ost-ukr.Einheiten, sondern es liegt auch im Rücken der Armeegruppierungen.
Hier einige Screenshots.
Alle Videos sind wie gehabt auf Telegram

Ukrainan asevoimat on saanut mittavan määrän erilaista aseapua. Erityisen kiinnostavia ovat olleet pst-aseet, sillä perustaahan 🇷🇺taistelunsa paljolti mekanisoitujen joukkojen varaan. Siispä lanka Javelinista ja panssarintorjunnasta yleensäkin👇1/
Sekä 🇪🇪 että 🇺🇸 ovat toimittaneet Ukrainaan FGM-148 #Javelin panssarintorjuntaohjuksia. Ne ovatkin tulleet tarpeeseen ja joidenkin väitteiden mukaan niillä olisi saavutettu lähes taianomaisia tuloksia. 300 ammuttua ohjusta ja 200 tuhottua kohdetta. 2/

Luku on enemmän kuin mitä esim 🇪🇪🇸🇪🇳🇴 on yhteensä taistelupanssarivaunuja. Noh totta tai ei, tappioita niillä taatusti on joka tapauksessa tuotettu. Luvuista väännetään vielä varmasti pitkään. Mutta mikäs tikkari se Javelin sitten oikein on? 3/

Die militärische Lage an der ukr.-rus. Grenze bleibt weitgehend unverändert. Russland hat allerdings einen Teil der Truppen abgezogen.
Mehr als 10.000 Soldaten hätten ihre "Feldmanöver" beendet und seien in die permanenten Stützpunkte weiter im Landesinneren zurückgekehrt.
(2/13)
Der #gorbachev hat unterdessen die NATO-Osterweiterung scharf kritisiert.
Man habe den Kalten Krieg zusammen überwunden.
Nach dem Fall der Sowjetunion sei den USA aber "Hochmut in den Kopf geschossen" und sie hätten die Osterweiterung betrieben, so der Ex-Präsident der UdSSR

Now that everyone finally knows about #javelin throwing thanks to @Neeraj_chopra1's phenomenal gold medal at the Olympics, it's time to look at some delightful #Physics trivia and history behind this beautiful sport! A lazy Sunday thread on the Javelin throw! #scicomm (1/n)
Observation 1: High school physics says "for max range, a projectile should be launched at a 45 degree angle". That's true only for launch & target at the same height! Here, launch ~2m above ground, target at ground + LOTS of aerodynamics -> optimal angle is ~36 degrees! (2/n)
Trivia: The Javelin throw is a rare event where the IAAF (now called @WorldAthletics) intervened to change rules to force throw distances to be REDUCED, as changes (based on physics!) such as hollow, designer cross section, surface texture... made javelins more aerodynamic (3/n)
