Ukraine and Only Ukraine. If it isn't about Ukraine then fuck off

This is an astonishingb interview with a Russian Tankie engineer who got two weeks training driving a tank and then found himself in the front line.
One step shy of ordering the Kremlin marching band into the trenches.

Mil watchers think Russia did send all troops trained for offence already to Ukraine. Now sending all kind of unrelated volunteer groups, many without training in combined arms. Making communication and chain of command confusing. Like in Kharkov, some regiments tried to hold on, to see their flanks running away.

So, they failed at combined-arms ops before, now their plan is to send troops who are even worse at it?

I genuinely thought the Russians were smarter than this.

Well, maybe. We'll see what happens.
Russia is working on setting up a defence line further east, and need to hold the south defence line around Lyman. While Ukr is probing both. Russia is fully in the defence there, and can not fall back on fully prepared 3rd line.
And Ukraine already targetting east defence line with Himars and other arty. Svatove hotel full with Russian mil hit.

It will get worse as more non army volunteer groups get send in and their warlords want a say in strategics and argue for resources.
You need a strong high command to integrate them in an effective army. And with a plywood general in charge...

And from some sources is using slave labour to dig the trenches. Forcing civilians to work, or they get shot. Another barbarian move.
Julia Davis twitter has examples of Russian propagandists calling to destroy Ukrainian civilians. Openly advocating genocide.

When the enemy is running, hit him and keep him running. I'm sure the UKRs know this, the question is, do they have enough to hit with?
Enough morale to do it, man must rest or be replaced after a week of full adrenaline, some material needs to be replaced to. Area freed as to be swiped clear. Are there enough trained reserve soldiers in the area ?
Calculation will be is it worth to press on in causalities, or let them set up the defence and do the trick all over again.

Wagner blogger;
Also, the enemy, for some miraculous reason for them, unlike us, does not always try to smash into our fortified areas and does not hesitate to bypass them, and does not lose personnel in senseless frontal attacks.

Discussion between Rus mil bloggers about giving up Kherson.

Up to a point. Thou shalt not overextend thyself and outrun thy logistical supply lines.
Thou shalt, if possible, break the Orc's supply lines.

Ret General Wesley Clark mentions in this CNN interview that one third of US? Western ? weapons sent to Ukraine are out of service already. As an argument that more must be sent at once.

Exactly. After a week of high speed fighting, you need to pause, consolidate, rest and let the rest of the army catch up with the folks at the sharp end.

Russians hope that less and less weapons will be send to Ukraine is in fain.
New from Germany.
Two new MLRS Mars II, 4 additional Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled howitzer. Also 50 Dingo armored personnel carriers are arriving.
And 12 more Gepards anti air. Training on Iris missile systems going on.
Ukraine used a couple of PHZ 2000 already so much they need a check up.

Other countries keep sending stuff too.

The Russians have created a massive surge in Ukraine - in Donbas and Crimea the traffic jammed with the GTFO folks. Makes you wonder what they know, right?
