I dont have a link but a Ukrainian war gamer I know posted this from a Russian source.


Moscow's official reaction to the loss of the Moskva has surfaced.

▪️The Russian Defense Ministry says the Navy's exercise included a planned reclassification of the Moskva cruiser as a submarine.

"In the course of re-qualification of the cruiser into a submarine, a planned submergence was carried out in accordance with the decision of the General Staff. In order to maintain negative buoyancy, the ship took an upright position. Fakes about the fire are spread by sailors who mistook the smoke from barbecue roasting on the ship for fire," Igor Konashenkov said during the briefing.

There is something weird here, something that does not add up.... PERHAPS this is a translation issue..... BUT

Quote:
destroying Ukraine's railways and making it impossible for any world leaders to visit in the future
SERIOUSLY ????

What century do these people think it is ??


And this, if true just made this all infinitely worse

Quote:
the leading notion of Putin's invasion was to erase the idea of being Ukrainian. "The idea has been poisoning the lives of Slavic people for 100 years," he said, adding that "before we start eradicating them and before they start to realise that they have to get educated… First, they have to be convincingly defeated."

I'm not and never will be signed up for "twitter" so these links only show one or two items before I am blocked but I did see what looked like the Moskva sinking and I managed to grab a screenshot



Someone was being cheeky with photoshop

https://www.defense.gov/News/News-St...ed-to-ukraine/

Quote:
the array of equipment that will be sent to Ukraine as part of the new drawdown package is broad. It includes 18 155 mm Howitzers, along with 40,000 artillery rounds. Also included are the AN/TPQ-36 counterartillery and AN/MPQ-64 Sentinel air surveillance radar systems.

To move Ukrainian troops around the battlefield, the package includes 100 armored Humvee vehicles, 200 M113 Armored Personnel Carriers, and 11 Mi-17 helicopters. The helicopters will augment the five Mi-17 helicopters sent to Ukraine earlier this year.



Everyone needs to understand that this upgrade has been delayed due to what's being going on in RL and no matter where we finally draw the line and say "that's it for now" within hours something will change.

I have been unable to contact Shrapnel and that is also delaying the release but we really ( really-really ) hope to have this posted by the beginning of the last week of April which is exactly a month later than we wanted

.........how's that allegedly Chinese curse go......."may you live in interesting times"?

in part


The Ukrainians champion the use of face-scanning software from the U.S. tech firm Clearview AI as a brutal but effective way to stir up dissent inside Russia, discourage other fighters and hasten an end to a devastating war.

But some military and technology analysts worry that the strategy could backfire, inflaming anger over a shock campaign directed at mothers who may be thousands of miles from the drivers of the Kremlin’s war machine.
and that could very well be Yes on both parts and could possibly turn something already nasty into something considerably more so as if the discoveries made after the withdrawals wasn't enough
