    I heard way back at the start of this whole thing Russia used up their last remaining laser guided munitions in the first few hours since they depleted their stockpiles in Syria. that is why in those first few days you saw videos of Jets bombing houses from only a few feet above the tree line. After a couple planes get shot down they had to change their bombing approach to not bombing, they lob cruise missiles at things now.

    Another thing I've heard but don't see people talk about is apparently the air to air weapons on Russian jet fighters have a range that is nowhere near close to their western counterparts. Russian jets can't engage with a plane unless they can see it from their cockpit while NATO can kill them over the horizon.

    Probably because there are only 4 or 5 modern jet models in the world too. Probably because Russia invested primarily in nukes and yachts and lots of metal for tanks and OIL while the rest of the world left them behind. When Putin is dead Russia will pick back up with a Trumpian leader or a Puppethead.

    Except in this timeline a Russian Tesla Trooper is a guy wearing a trashcan wielding with a wal-mart taser.

    Hide this in some bushes or inbetween buildings and wait for some helicopters to fly in. Still seems dangerous. Some of them have missles on the sides, but maybe not the ones being sent over.

    During the meeting with Guterres, Putin compared DPR and LPR to Kosovo and said that they have the same right to exist.

    Putin betrayed Serbia, stabbed it in the back. He's not interested in Serbian friendship. Traded Donbas for Kosovo. Serbia should look for other allies.

    Another diplomatic fail this week after Russia angered the Bulgarians by shutting the gas shipments.

    Serbia is making a lot of their issues on their own. Regardless of what Putin does, a lot of people there still love him, cuz you know, he fights the good fight with his voice against all the transpeople, homosexuals and degenrates that belong on a cross. It's outright moronic in what kind of conspiracy issues they believe and a lot of issues with nationalism that exist in the US are cranked up to 11 there.
    Serbia has not a lot of other options than to go with "Russia" in it's current political situation. Look at who they are voting for. And right-wing nationalism is growing a lot in Serbia. I still have family down there and I can't stand most of them due to this. People don't realise how big that belief of "Serbia did nothing wrong!" (about war crimes) and "Serbia stronk!" is down there.

    Serbians seem to be under the impression that they are ever only at the beginning *of world domination*, patiently playing the long game

    Russia will attack anywhere they can, and Kyiv is still open for missile attacks, so they will keep launching missiles.
    Russia had to pull out of Kyiv Oblast, because they _failed_ at penetrating the defenses. The bar was not very high though, they had expected little-to-no resistance. They got resistance - harsh resistance. When you get harsh resistance, you gotta do better than long-ass suicide collumns of stationary un-fuelled IFVs, like... it was pathetic.
    The best thing they could do, was a "face-saving" "you know what, we're actually not that interested in Kyiv after all. Those 15 000 corpses we left behind, that's just how we roll. To Donbass, everyone! To waaar!"

    This still means Ukraine cannot let their guard down: Russia had to ditch Kyiv, because it was too heavily defended for their shit ass non-plan to work. Ukraine has to maintain defenses in the north, or Russia will find some way to swoop right back in, with confused conscripts and drunk commanders. In the meantime, they got missiles and stuff, so yeah, sure - keep firing. War of attrition, after all.

    No matter how this ends for Ukraine, it will be an equally long road for Russia to recover from this, especially if they decide to go all bat-shit and roll into NATO territory.

    All a moot point after Finland and Sweden join NATO. Ukraine needs to hold out a little longer to see if any balls drop.
