Two engines, with separate gearboxes and propeller shafts, that are longitudinally mounted, one on each side of vehicle immediately behind cab. The 9P missile launcher vehicle as a monument to A. Some hardware could have existed only on paper and even before the war could have been non-repairable. This suggests that the real losses of the UA still need to be further researched to make the conclusions more precise.
One can argue anything in the Internet, but diplomats would play ping-pong for weeks and months. There is certain job to be done, and there is its informational and diplomatic cover. Just like in Crimea. This game continues, and is accepted by all sides.
As this arrangement is cyclical, it can last indefinitely, even until Kiev or Lvov is taken: Lavrov will step up to the microphone and state that Russia does not participate in anything. And officially this will be so. Whereas anything that any blogger or commenter wrote in his blog would remain personal opinions of individuals. I dare you to say that this scheme does not work.
As we see, the scheme, where officially nothing exists, can work not just for weeks and months but for years, and these rules of the game are accepted by all participants, with some stipulations. You can search for yourself. Very good reporting. The only sidebars I might add to it are two. I think it is much higher than a maximum of 5, Most of them look like different people to me.
I remember in particular the large numbers on video at a demonstration demanding demobilization a year or so ago. That group only a part of the guard looked to be over,or almost 5, by itself. So taken altogether I think 5, is certainly an under-count. It might be the numbers killed or wounded from that group. But not the total figure of members. But seriously, the list does not include any aircraft. And none now? Thanks for this detailed analysis. Gives a glimpse into what actually goes into it.
I did not know that the war is going on to this extent. I grieve for all the bloodshed running under the covers of political correctness. I have to bear in mind that there are also losses of civilians and military on the side we favor. Number of dead is alot more then , thats for sure.
I remember how they extremly undercounted their losses, while i followed the minute by minute events for the first half year. Could count myself numbers of bodies and equipments screenshots, videoes, etc alot higher then the official fairytale at that time. Western official numbers i assume is still around ?
Major flaw is that it is presumed that all crew on every item of destroyed equipment was killed. However, it does not include, or make any mention, of how many casualties would have been inflicted on troops in the open killed by artillery bombardment, particularly MLRS, and it is very likely that the majority of casualties would have been caused by such bombardments.
Artillery, tubed or rocket, is the biggest killer on the battlefield since WWI. An example is the devastation caused to UA units, such as 30th and 50th brigades around Saur-Mogila in mid August And of course previously at Zelenepole. Tho I think the method of calculating casualties by equipment lost is naive and inaccurate, the number of UA deaths is higher than the one quoted in the article, perhaps higher by a further ten thousand due to casualties caused to infantry not part of the crew of any of the equipment listed in the article, and killed by artillery bombardment.
Me too, I think the estimation of killed and wounded soldiers is flawed. Infantry has been ignored in the article I put the number killed in total…. Sunday, May 22, — The third year of war in Donbass is running already. Recently I returned from the LPR where I had visited the front line and talked to the soldiers so that to learn the situation in the lines, the moods among the soldiers and plans of the Ukrainian side.
Our party is forced to observe the Minsk arrangements unilaterally. Everybody perfectly understands owing to whose efforts the Republic is alive and who is the limiting factor forcing the Ukrainian military to remain on the differentiation line.
Meanwhile the intensity of hostilities is gradually increasing. The Ukrainian military daily fire at the territory of the Republic; conduct reconnaissance-in-force operations; transfer subversive units. Soldiers believe that Poroshenko will earlier or later break down and begin the attack. And for what else does Kiev pull together more and more equipment, and also personnel, including foreign mercenaries, to the differentiation line? It is expensive and harmful to hold such large troops on the border with Novorossia eternally — fighters quickly become inveterate drunkards and degrade.
All of us perfectly understand what really want these majdan moron authorities. Naturally, in order to turn Donbass into another Serbian Krajina. To carry out large-scale cleansing and to subordinate the rebellious region in which even on the occupied part there is constantly operating guerrilla movement. Nobody can tell how long this situation will last. One thing is clear: time plays against Kiev — while our defenders keep the front line, the republics irrevocably leave away from the Maidan Ukraine.
Over the past day the Ukrainian military shelled the territory of the Republic three hundred eight times. The enemy launched two hundred four mm and 82mm mortar shells. In addition, the enemy used in shelling tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, grenade launchers of different types and small arms.
The Ukrainian military opened fire at the following localities: Staromikhaylovka, Yasinovataya, Spartak, Dokuchaevsk, Vesyoloye, Sakhanka, Sosnovoye, Kominternovo, the area of the airport and the Petrovsky district of Donetsk city. Our intelligence continues to report the amassing of the nationalist units along the contact line. Our intelligence reports the extremely low morale in the AFU units.
In particular, the APU command does not dismiss the military of the 5th wave of mobilization, deliberately delaying the timing of their service. Due to this fact, the military openly express defiance to their commanders, declaring not to understand this war. Such sentiments provoke the nationalist units to conflict with the AFU soldiers unwilling to fight.
The conflicts often end in the meanest shooting of soldiers in the back or mutual skirmishes. According to our estimates, due to such conflicts, only over the past two weeks the losses in the AFU units and divisions amounted to more than 70 men killed, not to mention the wounded. The AFU command is hiding the true causes of conflicts, not voicing these data even as non-combat losses.
They try to hush up the fact that the second and the ninth of May divided the Ukrainian military environment into two parts, with the most of soldiers categorically refusing to fight. As it turns out, these are the commanders who give orders to shell the DPR territory or perform stupid tasks putting the lives of their subordinates at risk.
These are the commanders who take you for cannon fodder, imagining you getting into another pocket by their fault. In this regard, we urge the Ukrainian military to unite and create real pockets of resistance against the war-mongering nationalists who have come to kill civilians and shoot simple Ukrainian soldiers tired of the war in Donbass.
We urge you to unite against the corrupt Bandera oligarchic power. Because the true causes of the war lie in the absence of moral of those who ideologically serve interests of their American masters! Ukrainian military, soldiers and officers, you have weapons in your hands and you know perfectly well where the puppet regime has brought the country.
Only you can make a difference by getting rid of those who profit from the grief of ordinary people. Sunday, May 22, — On Together around 12 shells caused damage to four houses and shelling happened a 2nd time in just one week towards residents of the village. Ukrainian positions are about kilometers from shelled location. Luckily no-one was injured from obvious terror shelling and provocation, made by Ukrainian forces. The OSCE monitor mission was not seen in place same evening or the day after, where residents had already rebuilt damages made from shelling.
