Intelligence acquired since the beginning of the Russian military operation over Ukraine has shown an immense lack of logistic support, making this war one of the most unique in 2022 when it comes to surveillance.

A thread 👇🧵 Image
For the 1st time in a modern conflict, the regular forces of Russia are communicating without digital mode, making them fully audible by everyone.

A story documented by Nicholas Laidlaw ( might explain that the cause would be bad logisitic preparation. Image
A story being confirmed not only by PoW testimony but also by material captured by the Ukrainian army after clashes with the Russian army, such as in this tweet, showing a civilian Baofeng which was used by the Russian infantry.

Following the lack of security on their communications, we have been closely cooperating with radio amateurs & translators, across the globe, to document and gather intelligence.
Russian units on ground were then tracked, such as Buran-30, which we can hear planning an artillery attack on a civilian location.

We can also hear jammers trying to interrupt Russian communications and disrupt their coordination capabilities.…
Using publicly available web radio receiveir (webSDR), callsigns of Russian military units and roles were discovered. Reports of losses, injuries, ... everything can be heard. Even them swearing at their own crew, such as in this recording.…
During a fight West of Kiev, we learned that there was an FOB in Nalivaykovka - to which Yug95 was sent to bring the 200 (KIA) and 300 (Injured).…
We also heard them cry during a fight near Kharkhiv, as heard in this recording. But also had fuel issues, trouble coordinating because lack of maps, ... While also requesting air support or talking about Iskander strikes.…
Every conversations have displayed a disturbing lack of coordination between units, sometimes even firing at each other. But also, in addition to the simple fact that they are equipped with analogic radios, a lack of logisitical support.
Because unsecured communications, the frequencies have been constantly jammed by civilians, sometimes in the middle of fights, making the ground infantry unable to operate properly and having to withdraw.
An entire community created itself around those communications, currently scanning and recording anything of interest, including ShadowBreak. Creating hours of intense Russian army chatter recordings, each demonstrating an army unprepared for such situation.
We will soon make as much raw recordings as possible freely available for journalists and translators, with the hope of shining lights on a historical situation where a regular army is being tracked by thousand of individuals.
