    In all seriousness, while Russia as a nation currently totally deserves any and all humilation directoed towards it, I feel for the actual soldiers/conscripts. I mean why even bother bringing them to the front at this stage? It's not like they can achieve anything but perhaps a tiny delay of the advance of UKR forces.

    Watch the 1st half of this yesterday before the NFL kickoffs started. If anything, this one make it look like all the stereotypes about Russian organizations were not exaggerated, but understated.

    Oh man. If only it applied to russian orgs only. If you ever worked in corpo environments you encounter all of this daily. But it's not as endemic as in russia and not that widespread.

    It serves a few purposes

    Firstly, they're heavily weighted towards the "Not really Russians" demographics, so depopulating the ethnic minorities of (more or less) military age males is always something of a win for an ethnofascist regime.

    Secondly, Putin will literally die shortly after he is forced to admit defeat. Letting 500 or 1000 get killed so Putin can stay alive another day is a price that must be paid to keep the God-Emperor on His golden throne and The Warp at bay.

    BS!

    Stray Russian rockets hit farm in Poland, killing two Polish civilians.
    https://wiadomosci.radiozet.pl/Polsk...ary-smiertelne

    What this DOES NOT mean:
    - World War 3
    - NATO article 5

    What this PROBABLY means:
    - more hardware to Ukraine
    - more sanctions on Russia
    - more air defense to Poland

    And the rest remains to be seen.

    Lol no. Nothing will happen. Best case scenario is Ukraine getting more requested toys faster. Worst case only some angry letters will be sent.

    Perhaps shit loads of extra air defences on Poland's eastern border? With the intention of intercepting even above Western Ukraine maybe, sends a message but it's not like Russian manned aircraft ever get near that envelope.

    That's the most probable middle ground. Plus more aircraft in the air patrolling border.

    Given the polish security council are meeting we could be seeing some action for sure. As to WW3 - I doubt it.

    At least one Russian cruise missile from today's barrage against Ukrainian cities landed in Russia - Reportedly in Shebekino, 4 Russian civilians were killed and 6 injured outside of a pharmacy
    So Russia hits Russia, Ukraine and Poland, what the fuck are they doing?

    Do you mean Russia pushing for a conventional war with NATO with hundreds of thousands dying and potential to turn nuclear and kill billions?

    Poland is considering to trigger NATO Article 4.

    Article 4 is generally considered the starting point for major NATO operations, and therefore is intended for either emergencies or situations of urgency.
    It officially calls for consultation over military matters when "the territorial integrity, political independence or security of any of the parties is threatened.
    "Upon its invocation, the issue is discussed in the North Atlantic Council, and can formally lead into a joint decision or action (logistic, military, or otherwise) on behalf of the Alliance.

    Hundreds of thousands dying? From laughter how quickly russia folded when facing more than donated cold war equipment and a handful of modern systems?

    And please, stop beating nuclear horse, he's dead already.

    Good. Sounds like a groundwork for move of greater quantity of modern equipment ratified by alliance as a whole. So, no more you first fingerpointing.

    And for some more context. Town that was hit is Przewodow. Here's a funny thing to take into consideration. Przewod in polish is cable. Do you know why some town in bumfuck nowhere in Poland is named Cable Town? Because through it runs a power line that connects Ukraine to european power grid. During summer Ukraine sold some electricity to Poland, nowadays it could be used to supply Ukraine with much needed electricity during winter after all those rocket attacks on their power infrastructure. If I were to bet, I would say it was no accident. Just another idiotic maneuver by russian command. And as usuall they accomplished nothing because they missed power line and hit some grain drier and a tractor. And to add more spice it must have been launched from territory of Belarus. I guess we'll see tomorrow what the official statement will be.
