    Everytime they get new equipment they tend to take back land- once UA got those Polish T-72's that's when they started having success, if UKR knows they have equipment coming who knows

    Russian Troops Poisoned By Cherries They Stole From Ukrainian Farmers
    By Bill Galluccio

    June 17, 2022.

    Ivan Fyodorov, the mayor of Melitopol, Ukraine, told reporters that local farmers have been helping fight back against the Russian invaders by poisoning their crops.

    Fyodorov said that a large number of Russian troops recently became sick after eating stolen cherries.

    “Our farmers prepared another gift for the [Russians]—recently treated sweet cherries, which caused mass illness among those who stole them from the farmers. It’s the latest kind of partisan resistance on the territory of Melitopol,” Fyodorov said, according to a translation by The Daily Beast.

    There are nearly 5,000 acres of cherry farms in Melitopol, which produce several thousand tons of fruit.

    Last month, Fyodorov accused Russian troops of stealing the cherries from farmers. The soldiers promised the farmers they would pay for what they took after the cherries had been sold. The troops then took them to Crimea, which has been unable to get Ukrainian cherries since Russia annexed the region in 2014, and sold them at below-market prices.

    Yes. Part of a recently activated sleeper cell. We've been waiting, infiltrating niche message boards across the world over the last 12 yrs. All in anticipation of a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

    I was surprised when I wasn't activated for the 2014 invasion and coup. And I was again surprised and a little disappointed that I wasn't called up for the big show, the 2016 election.

    The Panzerhaubitze 2000, abbreviated PzH 2000, is a German 155 mm self-propelled howitzer developed by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann and Rheinmetall for the German Army. The PzH 2000 is one of the most powerful conventional artillery systems deployed in modern times.

    If that’s real, I think that people might not really realize what large-unit/large scale actions are like, and they are an utter clusterfuck. There’s just too much information and too many moving parts and things change too quickly for things to go smoothly. Even vets of the last twenty years don’t really get it because it was either occupation operations or fairly small raids, there really wasn’t ever a line of engagement across a broad front.

    To give a fairly small example, I was once working a personnel recovery mission that ended with the quick reaction force opening fire on the people they were there to rescue, because it was at night and dark and they were scared and undertrained and in enemy territory, and the people they were rescuing surprised them because their radio was dead. And because we, the overwatch, didn’t have good comms with the QRF, all we saw was a bunch of technicals open up on the trees where our personnel were hiding, so then you have three different Reapers get firing solutions on our own QRF.

    So in short, combat OPs like this are a fucking mess and I think a lot of these likely Fobbit veteran volunteers are in for a rude awakening.

    Edit: the personnel being recovered got out fine; the miscommunication got sorted fairly quickly but there was very near chance of it going to shit in a hurry. It’s been several years and I’m still pissed about how balls up that mission was.

    May not be in the vein of this thread, but also not sure it isn’t. Might be more wholesome than this thread is used to.
    We had a handful of Ukrainian refugee families get settled into my small community in Alaska in the past month or so. My 7 year old plays soccer and we’re almost halfway thru the season. Had a new kid show up last night, Ukrainian family, doesn’t speak any English, parents don’t either. Coach and other parents using Google translate and other apps to communicate with them. Kid is really good, so good that I bet someone asks for a birth certificate before the season is done.
    It’s pretty cool and makes you almost ashamed of what we’ve got when a family with 4 kids under 12 relocated halfway around the world. The 2 older kids used their only carry-on bag to bring soccer balls and shoes with them when fleeing their country. I’m working on teaching my 7 year old a little Ukrainian so he can at least say “hi” and “good job” or “pass me the ball” and the new kid can have a bit of normalcy.
