I can’t believe I missed this one today, the editing is unbelievable.

A 12 minute clip of Ukrainians conducting what was sadly a suicide attack on Russian trenches

.. just to be pummelled by Su-25’s, infantry, heavy mortars, a tank, MLRS and finished with an Su-34 bombing run.
PART 1 (previous)

- Ukrainian soldiers get dropped by an APC and begin storming the trenches north, unoccupied by Wagner and LPR soldiers. They also used a civilian vehicle.

- a pair of Su-25’s attacks their armoured vehicles
- trench combat
- heavy Russian artillery

- a sad view as the trenches fill up with Ukrainian casualties, look for survivors among their comrades

- another part of the Ukrainian group comes under fire in the nearby building agglomeration

- a massive group of Ukrainian soldiers crawls inside a short trench section with artillery exploding meters away. Just an awful situation to be in

- a car they drove in on gets hit by a Russian RPG

- place is littered with bodies

- an LPR tank rolls in and starts plucking Ukrainian armoured vehicles
This battle took place some time ago, but it’s still incredible to watch now that they made the concise edit.

If we consider that such attacks happen by the dozens every week, the Russian MoD estimates of Ukrainian daily losses aren’t that farfetched.

⚡️ The war in Ukraine explained to Americans by analogy ⚡️

2023 - Texas secedes from the USA by peaceful agreement. Texans see a new path and a bright future ahead of them.
Despite its independence, Texas and the USA are deeply connected.

Most Texans have a fluid Texan/American identity, family & friends in the USA, and use English as their first language.

Spanish is the other official language, but few use it outside southern border areas.
After 2 decades the government is still largely pro-USA, but not everyone is happy with it.

In South Texas a lot of people with less connection to the USA want closer ties to Latin America.

Latin America, a long-term competitor of the 🇺🇸, knows the strategic importance of Texas

Disaster of Ukrainian paratroopers in Svatovo and Kremennaya

The 25th and 80th air assault brigades were ordered to capture two different road sections yesterday morning

The 25th didn’t even get close.

The 80th was left without comms due to Russian electronic warfare and (1/2)
… and contacted command via open channels, which was recorded by the Russian Shipovnik-AERO electronic warfare complex, after which their positions were hit by Giasint-B artillery.

Both groups were sent on the raid without support… (2/3)
The 66th Mechanised Brigade, which is supposed to support the 25th, already lost 80% of its T-64BV and T-72B tanks, as well as most of its artillery.

The 92nd Mechanised Brigade, previously used to attack north of Svatovo, lost 70% of tanks and only has M113 and YPR-765’s (3/4)

Ukrainian terrorists blew up a truck full of explosives over the Crimean Bridge causing damage to the road section.

At the same time the explosion was timed to hit a passing train with fuel tanks, causing it to catch on fire over the rail section of the bridge.

ISIS style.
The suicide bomber truck is visible here.

At least one car with civilians was obliterated by the explosion, but that of course isn’t an issue to a terrorist state.

It happened very close to shore, which will make repair work easier.
Work to assess and repair damage has begun.

The suicide bombing happened right before the upwards section of the road, and the collapsed road was already close to water level, which like the site’s proximity to shore will facilitate repair work.

People don’t really appreciate how much Ukraine’s existence as a functional country is hanging on Russia’s odd sense of moral righteousness and good grace.

Russia has the capability to destroy the entire Ukrainian power grid in a single day, and do it over and over again.
It has the weapons and it has the motive, but somehow, to the astonishment of many within Russia and outside it, it refuses to do the thing that would single-handedly not only end the war but also Ukraine as a 21st century country.
Putin himself described last Sunday’s attack - that left half of Ukraine scrambling for electric power - as a mere warning.

A definite attack on Ukraine’s national power grid would have no safety stop, it’s a commitment that would put Ukrainians through a nightmare of a Winter.
