This won't help Russia in the short term, long term it could wipe out a generation of Russians, if they declare war, the west will need to accelerate production and delivery if arms and ammunition, as we would have maybe two months before conscripts reach the front

Not sure how sending in conscripts with limited training is going to help Russia. If their main forces are having such difficulty, you are right, it will wipe out a generation of Russians when that country is already suffering from a declining birth rate and ageing population

The destruction of the Ukrainian radar for illumination and guidance of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system by the Russian operational-tactical complex "Iskander-K" was published by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation


Deliveries of Western weapons to Ukraine continue. At the railway station in Stuttgart, Germany, a batch of military equipment sent to Ukraine was found. A German Pzh 2000 SPG equipped with a 155-mm cannon and an American MLRS m270 multiple launch rocket system were spotted on the platform. The Pzh 2000 self-propelled guns are considered one of the best, but there is one problem, the installation has a NATO caliber, so Ukraine will have to look for shells for this weapon in other countries, it does not produce such a caliber. With the MLRS m270 multiple launch rocket system adopted in 1983, the same problem, there are no missiles that are located in rechargeable containers in Ukraine.


Tank battle of a Russian tank with the T-64 of Ukraine. As reported, the Ukrainian tank T-64BV decided to support the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who took up defense in the hangars with fire. Having advanced to the battlefield, he fired several shots at the Russian tank and, having missed, decided to retreat. By return fire from a Russian tank, the T-64 of Ukraine was hit,
two crew members left the burning tank, which is unknown with the third.

😆

Thanks @Soldier35 a.k.a.

The routine bureaucracy of occupation & annexation - Google translation from UKR mil int (original in Ukrainian attached).
Russian seals and integration plan - the occupiers are drawing the occupied Ukrainian territories to Russia
May 3, 2022

Russian seals and integration plan - the occupiers are drawing the occupied Ukrainian territories to RussiaRussia is considering the possibility of including the occupied territories of southern Ukraine in the temporarily occupied Crimea and their further integration into the Russian economic space. The development of a plan with a deadline of at least 2030 was announced on May 1 by the adviser to the so-called "head" of Crimea on information policy Oleg Kryuchkov.

At the same time, the Russian occupation regime is trying to persuade the local population to finally establish control over the occupied territories. On May 1, in Henichesk, the newly appointed "head of the City Council" Andriy Klochko organized a solemn raising of the Russian flag. However, the townspeople ignored the racist "holiday".

A number of private enterprises in the Rostov region received orders to produce seals and stamps for the occupation administrations of Mariupol. The list of institutions that will receive new "attributes" includes educational institutions, hospitals, police, registry offices and administrative institutions. Even though most of them are now completely destroyed by Russian troops.

The ordered stamps and seals contain the inscription: "Russia, the Republic of Donbas, Mariupol, the military-civil administration."

The racists announced that similar stamps and seals would be made for occupied Kherson in June.

Today in Mariupol occupiers carry out "big cleaning". The Russians are searching for and destroying the bodies of the dead. To do this, the city has three mobile crematoria since April 15 ...
Note this bit on when things may be scheduled to wrap up (allegedly, anyway) ....
... There is information among the occupier's military that the term of the so-called "special military operation" is set for September 2022.
Also, a pretty dramatic fundraising site showing what some Canadian cities could look like if they got "Not a War'ed" ....

I wonder if Israel might now consider sales of Iron Dome to the Ukraine?

Hmm. A tire that is over 20 years old, or a manufacturer, likely serving only the domestic market, clinging to the days of old.

I had a set of Nokian tires (Finland) on a previous truck and saw that they were stamped 'Made in Russia'.
Nokian has a plant Russia. Yes that is the founding company of Nokia. Interesting company it was a case study in school of a business that pivots to the market. From rubber to telcoms. Its in the company DNA...they sold the handset business to Microsoft just before it went to zero.

Or training Ukrainians on how to hunt down war criminals.
Ukraine needs to do all this stuff above board. Their propaganda coup by showing their own nobility and civility as opposed to Russian brutality and ignorance needs to remain intact. This mean proper investigations and arrests, not some vigilantee stuff that leads to them losing support in the West.

There will come a time when Ukraine will have a war crimes violation of their own, and they will have to decide on whether to prosecute it, their home public opinion and Western public opinion will loom large over that decision.

ON that subject the Israelis are - or at least were - masters in hunting down those that had harmed their people. The 1972 Olympics - every terrorist was hunted down and "dispatched" with out mercy. Apparently the assassins did make a mistake in Norway.

Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery touchy subject, that. Because of the history of, shall we say, fluid governance structures of local forces during and after WW2 in that part of the world, one man's "war criminal" could also end up being another man's "freedom fighter/anti-Soviet hero". How much overlap would there be, say, in any "war criminal" lists provided by Ukrainian vs. lists from Russian/former Soviet authorities?

Similar to the current tension in former Soviet bloc countries between "hey, the Soviets saved our asses from Nazis, buddy, so don't mess with that statue!" versus "hey, the Soviets ended up treating us like s**t afterwards, maybe worse than the Nazis in some ways, so stick your Lenin/Great Patriotic War monuments ... elsewhere!" narratives.

It could be argued that the Israelis may have felt better but didn't do much to make friends with those tactics. In the long run it may have contributed to their troubles at the UN.

Meanwhile, back in the USSR boys (so its not technically correct - meh)

This one is kinda neat - you erase Ukraine from the books, we erase the books.

And on a military note - an uptick on targeted artillery missions in Kherson area by the Ukrainians although they are still on the defensive. Better depth fires?

“Our rocker (sic) and artillery units have completed more than 40 fire missions. Along the administrative border of Mykolaiv Region and Kherson Region, we destroyed an enemy command operations center, three ammunition depots, one fuel and oils depot and several groups of enemy troops and military equipment. The total losses are yet to be reported,” the report states.

Ukrainian forces continued to defend the captured frontiers in Kherson Region and Mykolaiv Region
