Forbes estimates Russia has spent $82 billion on war with Ukraine since Feb. 24.

Forbes estimates Russia has spent $82 billion on war with Ukraine since Feb. 24. During nine months of its full-scale attack on Ukraine, Russia has spent $82 billion on war, which is a quarter of its annual budget, according to Forbes. They calculated that Russia has used 10,000 to 50,000 shells per day in the war, and the average price of a Soviet-caliber shell [sic] is about $1,000. It brings Russia’s spending to more than $5.5 billion on artillery supplies alone.

Putin meets Turkish President Erdogan in Astana

President Putin will meet with Turkish President Erdogan tomorrow in Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan. The two will talk about the battle in Ukraine. Erdogan has regularly tried to play a mediating role in the war.

There may also be talk in Astana about a new large ‘gas hub’ in Turkey. Russian gas could be transported to that hub and further into Europe via the still intact sections of the sabotaged Nord Stream pipeline, Putin said earlier.

Retreat behind own borders, leave Ukrainian territory, pay for the damage done.

It’s quite simple, otherwise EU / USA will never buy gas / oil whatever from Russia and export anything, Russia remains a pariah like North Korea. Tourists no longer welcome, export prohibited from EU/USA. Russia becomes a satellite state of China. Let’s face it, who will help Russia if China takes back ‘old territory they are entitled to’ from Russia?

“Russia willing to negotiate if there is a serious proposal”

Talking better than waging wars . . .

Russia is ready to negotiate with the West about the war in Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said on Russian state television that he has not yet received a serious negotiating proposal. He said he would like to talk to the US or Turkey about ways to end the war.

The war has been going on for almost eight months and Russia is suffering serious losses.

Lavrov said White House security spokesman John Kirby had said Russia had rejected proposals to negotiate. “That’s a lie, we haven’t received a serious proposal,” he said.

Turkey’s President Erdogan has an opportunity to make a proposal to President Putin when they meet in Kazakhstan later this week, Lavrov suggested.

Putin could talk to US President Biden at the G20 summit in Bali next month. According to Lavrov, Russia is not opposed to a meeting.

The last direct talks between Russia and Ukraine were in late March, when the war had been going on for a month. After that, the only serious talk was about the grain deal, the export of Ukrainian grain via the Black Sea. This was established at the end of July in consultation with the UN and Turkey.

Ракетные удары Кремля по гражданским объектам дают

Ракетные удары Кремля по гражданским объектам дают дополнительную мотивацию для ведения войны, которая будет длиться годами, пока диктатура Путина и его соратников не прекратится в самой России.

У Украины нет проблем с боевиками, они выстраиваются в очередь, не только с Украины. Это пока русские массово дезертируют и бегут за границу

Putim is mad enough to use “the bomb”

Hardliner now new commander in Ukraine

After the important bridge has been partly destroyed, the arterial connection between Russia and Ukraine, it is time to lick the wounds for Russia, things are not going well. AZ

New Russian military commander in Ukraine

The Russian Defense Ministry has appointed Air Force General Sergei Surovikin as commander of the armed forces fighting in Ukraine. In the past, Surovikin was, among other things, commander of the Russian military in Chechnya and in Syria.

Previously, General Aleksandr Dvornikov was in command of Russian units in Ukraine. He took up that position in April.

Surovikin’s appointment comes at a time when the Russian military leadership has been heavily criticized for military losses in Ukraine. Earlier this week, two Russian regional commanders in Ukraine were fired. In recent weeks, Ukraine has rapidly recaptured territory. For example, the Ukrainian armed forces said they had liberated 400 square kilometers of area in the south of the country in a week on Thursday..

if Russia does not turn the tide in Ukraine , they will again suffer a heavy loss of face after the collapse in Afghanistan and the previous flight from the Kiev region .

@astroehlein

Two decades ago, I asked Russian investigative journalist & human rights defender Anna Politkovskaya how she could keep doing what she did. For her reporting on abuses by Russian forces in the 2nd Chechen War, the military detained & beat her & subjected her to mock execution. 1/

Macron: more European weapons to Ukraine


French President Macron has confirmed that Europe will send more military equipment to Ukraine for the war against Russia. The new weapons, including French Caesar-type howitzers, come at a time when Russia continues to experience military setbacks in Ukraine.

At a European summit in Prague, Macron said of more arms supplies: “We are indeed working on several requests, with different members of the EU, including new Caesars.” Last week, Ukraine’s Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya regions were illegally annexed by Russia after mock referendums among the population were completed. However, Russian forces have been driven back by a Ukrainian counter-offensive that recaptured large parts of Kherson.
