No speech of Putin, delayed till tomorrow or not. Speculations going on Russian Telegram. Why did he not allow the pre taped speech to be aired ? From a planned assassination of Zelenski failed, or is there a coup going on. Why would Russia play this game...

One of the problems Putin has is he can't use conscripts in combat areas outside of Russia due to Russian laws on the matter. Making Luhansk and Donetsk part of Russia would allow him to use them.

Considering the widely reported situation of poor recruitment and a heck of a lot of soldiers with contracts close to expiring loudly saying they aren't going to re-up, it's a fair guess it's the issue prompting this move.

Russia has been using conscripts in Ukraine.
They've been using Russians and they've been using Donchyani.

Had to be fooled into signing contracts first.

A Russian parliamentarian said one group of 100 conscripts was forced to sign contracts for military service and then sent to Ukraine into combat,

this Is a good site for analysis of the state of the battle field. I separately saw a report on CNN that the Russians are in danger of getting overrun near Kershon that they’re at riso of being trapped on the west side of a river and that as many as 5-15K troops might have no choice to surrender. Possibly wishful thinking but I’ll take it.

I saw a report today, maybe also CNN, with sat photos of two temp bridges RU has built across the river. Hopefully they will provide an escape route for those poor RU peasant bastards, should they choose to not surrender. The bridges are too fragile to carry tanks and such, thank gawd.

Hell is coming the Kherson, I hope the city does not get decimated Mariupol-style - damn that was horrific.

Russian troops boxed in by Ukrainian forces and Dnieper River, barge carrying supplies to Russian troops sinks​



"A barge carrying weapons, equipment and military personnel joined the occupiers’ underwater fleet."

A top adviser to Ukraine’s president and a vocal critic on social media, Mykhailo Podolyak, said Sunday that the fighting in downtown Kherson showed a "manifestation of growing tension" between the Kremlin-linked militant force the Wagner Group, Chechen forces led by Moscow-appointed Ramzan Kadyrov, Russian soldiers and intelligence officials affiliated with Russia’s Federal Security Service – the successor agency to the KGB.

"[The] number of ‘domestic conflicts’ is increasing. Parties divide the loot before [they] flee considering the news about Armed Forces of Ukraine approach," he added.

Putin announces partial mobilization. Most of his address so far is him ranting about his usual delusional grievances and spewing propaganda and lies. “West has crossed all lines.” “People in historic Novorossiya don’t want to live under neo-nazi regime.”

Putin: "The main goals of the special military operation remain unchanged. The Luhansk People's Republic has been completely liberated, and the Donetsk People's Republic has been partly liberated."

All army reserve personal with military experience will get a special training and be send to Ukraine. So all the last man with experience will be send to Ukraine. Probably means too all the conscripts that was on their end of the contract now has to stay on the battlefield.

So not millions will be send, and there is material shortage anyway. So feel like he is merely plugging the man shortage gap. This will not make a big difference on the battle field other then that maybe they can start to defend in depth with a bit more man. Reason why the advance in Kharkiv was successful. Only one line of defence.

All this proves the voluntary armies called for were not a success. Had to find more bodies.
And if they declare the occupied areas as Russian, they do not have to pay bonus anymore for fighting in a foreign country...

Confirmed by text from Russia.
All military service contracts (typically 3-6 months) currently in force extended indefinitely.

So more then half of their army soldiers deployed were looking forward to escape winter and Himars in Ukraine, returning home with cash.
Now they know they will have to stay. For ever. And high risk of death.

This is still a #1 question. Did someone get the grand Pootin to delay until they had presented him with another case? Will they be the next to fly like a pigeon from the fourth floor?
So very banana republic.

In Siberia and the Far East people began to go out on solitary pickets against mobilization in Russia.

This is the third Russian moblisation, 1914, 1941 and now.
