Putin orders 10% boost in Russian troop numbers - BBC News

 

 

Russia's president has signed a decree which could see 137,000 service personnel added to the country's armed forces in the coming months.

 

Currently Russia has a limit of just over a million military personnel and almost 900,000 civilian staff.

 

Vladimir Putin's decree comes amid a recruitment drive around the country, with large cash incentives on offer.

 

Western officials say 70-80,000 troops have been killed or wounded since Russia invaded Ukraine six months ago.

 

The UK Ministry of Defence said in a statement two weeks ago that volunteer battalions being set up in several Russian regions were likely to form part of a new army corps.

 

But it said "very limited levels of popular enthusiasm for volunteering for combat in Ukraine" meant it would be difficult to find the required number of troops.

 

Russia had initially promised a short, decisive campaign when it invaded Ukraine in February, but fierce Ukrainian resistance has stalled its progress and in recent weeks front lines have hardly moved.

Reminds me of the series of scenes from Running Man where a sequence of increasingly reluctant gladiators are being dredged up to send out against Schwarzenegger, with the last one simply refusing to go...

His personal desires are colliding with reality. The longer this goes, the less human resources he has. UKR is going the opposite, from defending, to going after Crimea

 

A time will come when Putin cracks

There have been several times where a Russian has posted a photograph with its metadata still intact, do called "Geo-tags. This recently include a Russian on a beach in a speedo posing in front of an Russian air-defense system.



But the story you mentioned the idiot recorded a video with the clear shot of the building's name, including an address plaque. Anyone watching the video with a paper and pencil could jot down the address.

But while on the subject "OSINT", here's some discussion.

This is what the user can do. But what an app does without his knowledge would be another thing. ;-)

Now we know why Russia has destroyed twice as many HIMARS systems as the US sent to Ukraine: They've been building decoys and letting the Russians waste Kalibr missiles on those:

 

 

 

Ukraine using wooden decoys to lure Russia into wasting its missiles – report

 

Since the start of the war, Russia has repeatedly boasted that it destroyed many US-made missiles, including the long-range Himars missile systems, claims that the US has described as “patently false”.

 

 

“They’ve claimed to have hit more Himars than we have even sent,” one US diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told the Washington Post.

 

 

You've got to admire Ukrainian ingenuity with some of the stuff they're doing.

https://www.themoscowtimes.com/2022/09/01/lukoil-board-chairman-dead-after-falling-from-hospital-window-reports-a78696

""
The chairman of the board of Russia’s largest private oil company, LUKoil, died Thursday after falling from a Moscow hospital window, according to Russian media reports. 

 

Ravil Maganov, 67, plunged from the sixth-floor window of the Central Clinical Hospital, according to police sources cited by RBC news website.

 

The hospital, known as the Kremlin Clinic for its treatment of patients from Russia’s political and business elite, confirmed Maganov’s passing to state-run news agency RIA Novosti without disclosing the circumstances of his death.

That's weird , his room was on the ground floor. Probably got lost while on a walk.





Most of the posters in this thread are just like chimpanzees on MDMA, full of feelings of bonhomie, joy, and optimism. Fred99 8/4/21

What's even stranger is that he fell out of the window three times before it killed him.

I do not believe that the death of the brave manager, who may have had to die because of his convictions, should be exaggerated. After all, the company dared to publicly propose an end to the conflict, and in my opinion this should be honoured, regardless of whether it is a Russian or another company.

The comments aren't making fun of Maganov but commenting on the mafia-like way that Russia is run...
