UPDATE ON UKRAINE 2 July 2022
INTELLIGENCE UPDATE

Russian forces continue to achieve minor advances around Lysychansk, with air and artillery strikes continuing in the district. Ukrainian forces probably continue to block Russian forces in the south-eastern outskirts of Lysychansk.

Russia continues to employ air-launched anti-ship missiles in a secondary land attack role, likely because of dwindling stockpiles of more accurate modern weapons. Analysis of CCTV footage shows the missile that impacted the Kremenchuk shopping centre on 27 June 2022 was highly likely a Kh-32. This is an upgraded version of the Soviet era Kh-22 KITCHEN.

Should just partition Ukraine. Russia gets eastern Ukraine and western Ukraine is a European client state. Also if that poster wasn’t bullshitting about being in Ukraine, I wonder if he got out.

Is it into the separatist-held areas of Donbas or the area still under Ukrainian government control?

PS: COD training at the airport there has made me an expert on urban warfare.

Looks like Donbas
quote:

Putin sends his military to the occupied Donbas. This means an invasion of Ukraine. I hope media don't repeat the 'peacekeeping forces' bullshite. In Kremlinese, 'peace' means war.
Stay strong, Ukraine ????

Why is a Reuters reporter asking me how I “feel?”

Why can’t he ask me what I think like an adult instead?

This is definitely the main question.

As I understand it, the separatists control around 1/3 of that land and the rest is in Ukrainian control with tons of troops there. The question is if Putin will bring the army and fight to also take the other 2/3, and if so, that would be bad.

Note:

You can

1) be very sad for the Ukrainian people and any prospect of western freedom and liberalism coming to their nation any time soon

2) oppose US involvement in the conflict

So if Putin attacks the US via cyberwarfare, which he plans to do, you’re okay with that as long as no US troops are involved.
