I guess it could be true, but one has to consider the source. I'm open minded but I doubt there is much truth to these stories. Also, if the US increased imported oil from Russia, but it was only for a few weeks at best. Some European counties have just under 50% Russian oil blended with other oil, this is one way around sanctions.
India has accepted Russia’s offer of crude oil at a discounted rate. According to White House, this is not a violation of American sanctions against Russia for invading Ukraine.www.newindianexpress.com
Biden administration officials are also promising to accelerate the build-out of hydrogen and carbon capturewww.scientificamerican.com
There are no such data yet. In any case, high-precision ammunition is minuscule compared to ordinary ones.I was looking to analyze effectiveness of Excalibur munitions .
Any Bomb damage assessment for Excalibur munitions. Any idea in which operations Excalibur munitions was used.
When I say US, its not US as a country but some entrepreneurial gentleman who will buy from Russia, make a killing from resale of the oil/gas and finally pay some fine to settle the issue.I guess it could be true, but one has to consider the source.

No big surprise the western media hasn't reported this.This is interesting, I really do think the Russians studied Erich Von Manstein a lot and why not? From Intel Slava Z
"Apparently, something happened under Gulyai-Pole that was supposed to happen (will happen again) near Kharkov. The Ukraine militants received an order to launch a counteroffensive in any way, the defending Russian troops led them into a fire bag and destroyed them."
"Offensive and defense are two different disciplines of the art of war. If Ukrainians are more or less able to defend themselves, then offensive actions require a completely different level of operational art." It will be interesting to see if the same thing happens in Kharkov.
We've seen multiple Ukr drones doing pretty accurate bombings...don't know about couple thousand feet...that's a lot, but yeah better than nothing I suppose.What are the odds of hitting the target? From the video it looks like the UAV is flying at a couple thousand feet AGL. Dropping dumb bomblets from that altitude can't expect too many hits.
From my limited understanding Oil Well cannot be closed temporarily and is suicidal (business wise).Are you just making stuff up?
Drilling and pumping releases this mixture of oil and gas. Any cessation of the extraction process may result in the clogging of this porous rock with sediment or paraffin, which means that production may permanently be reduced by half, or even stop completely, when pumping resumes.
At the pace they are advancing I doubt they will be able to capture all of Donbas within one month if at all - especially Slovyansk-Kramatorsk. As per Michael Koffman the date to watch out for is August, post which Russians will run out of steam to conduct major offensive operations and the war will enter a new phase.i think in 1 months time we will know.
lulushank is at 90% russian control , dotnet is at ~57% , in 1 month both will be (probably) fully captured . will see which way russia turns then .
How do you mean run out of steam?At the pace they are advancing I doubt they will be able to capture all of Donbas within one month if at all - especially Slovyansk-Kramatorsk. As per Michael Koffman the date to watch out for is August, post which Russians will run out of steam to conduct major offensive operations and the war will enter a new phase.
Per Koffman the Donbas offensive is the last offensive the Russians will be able to mount for some time. The amount of attrition inflicted on thier units will make them combat ineffective, and they will have to go on the defensive on the lands they hold. Of course that doesn't nessesarily mean Ukrainian will be able to mount a successful offensive, that will depend on wether they have enough forces left, with requisite heavy weapons etc.How do you mean run out of steam?
And neither will the residents of Donbass and LPR. You may not know but the bulk of the fighting in those areas are by those volunteers of Donbass and LPR and Russians are the supporting combat arms. Russians are the tankers and artillery while DNR and LPR are the infantry. So that tells you right there that the advantage lies with Russia and the two republics not Ukraine.Question is whether Ukraine will stop fighting for Donbass or not. They have said multiple times that they won't accept that situation.
You are forgetting the manpower from Donetsk and Luhansk. The people in those areas do not want to rejoin Ukraine. They are fighting to be republics or rejoin Russia. There's no manpower problem in those areas.It’s the problem of MANPOWER. Russia is outnumbered in a country they are attacking. This is not enough to take any major cities. Russians lack of MANPOWER is very showing in their inability to hold captured territory
