Yes western propaganda like to misquote him on his so called regret for USSR. Having said that, assuming Russia has to go in Ukraine.
What is the feasibility of imposing:
1. Complete air blockade
2. Impact of Javelin on Russian tank formations
3. Turkish drones I don't see much impact since numbers low and Russian air defence is good.
4. Availability of manpads posing threat to Helicopter and low level flying aircraft.
Turkish-made drones are well used for reconnaissance. As percussion they are almost useless.
They identify the target and the conditional Su-24 strikes at the column on the march, with a heavy guided bomb, without entering the air defense zone.

They have 200km range MRLS systems and not only that those MRLS systems are launching drones instead of artillery that go an extra range. Its going to be more artillery fire to level buildings to the ground, using satellite intelligence after strikes, there people that literally think minefields will be enough to stop tanks but that is not the case they have shown land vehicle drones that have those rollers that cause them to detonate as it clears path. Those drones i have plenty of images of getting destroyed by air defenses and it seems they got some interesting EW systems like soldiers wearing suits that can be recharged to cause EW suppression to signals at a 2km radius protecting other troops for 6 hours. ZALA ZONT - portable device protection against drones (zala-aero.com) Their helicopters have a long striking distance than Apaches, they are even launching anti tank mines with fucking howitzers (1633) 2S4 Tyulpan and 2S7 Pion - Page 5 (russiadefence.net)

I dont want to make another amusing statements but all their fuck ups or losses in the chechnyan wars might give them an advantage on how to handle certain situations. and its going to be difficult to get any good weapon when the entirey of the country is in your control. Taking will take more longer than Georgia which was 5 days for sure but maybe it can be less depending how much equipment is brought.

Also unlike Chechnya and considering Ukraine is not their country to disregard for life is going to be higher in Ukraine than the warfare they conducted on their own country. I am not trying to be funny but the best military intelligence some Ukrainian might get is to just go here to see what they are developing and producing. (1633) Russian Military Forum (russiadefence.net) Hopefully europe suspends flights across europe for everyones safety because of the usage of EW like murmansk-bn systems jamming HF frequencies from 1000s of kilometers away along with other heavy duty EW systems is something that is not worth risking your lives for either.

In 2014, Russian militants did not have strong air defense at the beginning, and the Ukrainian army used this. After Russia sent short-range systems there, in a short time Ukrainian aviation was "put on its ass" because Russian radars saw any aircraft that took off. Only helicopters were able to operate.
Therefore, the number of combat aircraft does not matter, and if you have strong air defense.

Can you really hold on Ukraine without high cost?
It seems a daunting task, not because of Ukraine army, but risk of getting sucked in Guerilla warfare coupled with more sanctions.
USA will not be sending private ramirez to save Andriy in Ukraine.
Reality of #Russia invading #Ukraine !
#Russians doesn't have the desire or the resources to occupy Ukraine. The country is an absolute mess. It would take years and billions of $ to get it back in order,if possible.

The Democ"RATS" were all-in on the Russian collusion train regarding Trump. They drummed it up for the entire 4 years of Trump's tenure.

Old, senile Biden won't do anything and will bendover to any Russian invasion. Even in such a scenario, you'll see the US MSM defend Biden.

Ukraine is becoming Pakistan. Got in bed with NaTO to finger a much bigger foe, now running each time to seek economic and military support.
From what I read they have gumption to insist Russian gas has to be offered at subsidise price. They are playing the strategic position card and will end broke.
It is a wonderful country,but they are placing wrong bets..

and also Ukraine is on the verge of financial default. That is why they urgently need to force Russia to enter the Donbass to get West aid.

We will also soon run out of bread, we freeze every year and eat everything without salt, because we have not had it for a long time. :) :) :)
You know how many such scary stories Russian propaganda invents.
In 2014, Russian mercenaries were very surprised how cherries, apple trees, apricots, mulberries grow in our courtyards of apartment buildings, and no one tears directly from the tree. In general, they looked like the Taliban-Light, who rode the carousel in Kabul.
I can remember 2008, when the Russian army captured Gori, and when ordered to bring a computer, a Russian soldier brought a monitor! Because he has never seen a computer.
Russian imperial greatness is like this - even if I have a bare bottom, but my country is an empire.

Biden is apparently a weatherman now. He said Russia won't be successful because if Putin wants to invade from the north, from Belarus, "he'll have to wait until the ground is frozen".

Really?

Leave alone trying to decipher this, who says they even have to do that? They have a hell of a lot of options, they can advance from Southern Ukraine by attacking from Crimea and Donbas and drawing Ukrainian forces there, meanwhile encircling them from above.
that is what seems to be happening a fleet of russian landing ships are moving towards blacksea...........they seem to have arrived from kaliningrad

a part of the fleet has crossed english channel while the other part is stuck due a massive storm in the north sea the fleet has roupchas -class and Ivan-gren class ships both are landing ships , they are not moving with an escort this seems to suggest they are probably being escorted by submarine/s
