    But he obviously correctly estimated Ukrainian will and morale for fighting isn't remarkable.

    People are fleeing the country like rats are fleeing the sinking ship, and it's not like they are endangered by Russian military, especially not in western Ukraine. That's what modern people are like.

    But still, I would say Russian progress so far is not as great as they initially projected. We'll see what happens next.
    Based on a videos out there it doesn't seem that people are taking pictures of tanks like one Russian member said. Maybe they are fleeing because they are endangered and not the opposite.

    That's what Germans are like. Small minded, stingy people who will rather live in humiliation but with full pockets than build their own forces.

    They deliberately chose not to invest into military and that is why their economy is so strong (because they can concentrate money into other areas). They keep Americans for cheap.

    I never understood glorification of Germany and "German values" by some slave minded easterners. They showed more than once they can't lead Europe.
    Yes, I like Germany and have such heritage too but that's the truth what your average Švabo is like.

    They will fuck in the ass to pay one Euro less. While that makes their economy excellent, such mentality will never make them great power, and that's well deserved.
    Don't take me for granted on this one. It's something I read years ago and it could be a distorted memory. Based on what I read and as I remember it at least, Germany was being kept under surveillance and Germany wasn't allowed to develop weapons and arm itself according to its own wishes. This situation changed only in recent years.

    :
    Those marks are usually to indicate where pipes, electricity supply networks or fiber optics go, which are usually made by civil contractors, and they usually indicate that in the future the pavement of that sidewalk will be removed, and that the works will start soon.

    But who knows, maybe the Russians are imitating them to indicate to the troops where they should go.

    In cases of invasion, one of the defensive stratagems to slow down the enemy advance is to remove road signs, they could make those marks just in case that happened.

    EMP weapons are an important component of most military arsenal. Anything electronic/robotic is rendered useless in modern combat.

    Loki is sensitive when it comes to Russia/Putin/Christianity.
    Peterski was trolling as usual, so it's not surprising (I hope he will be allowed back though).

    Do you really think Russian military will murder and rape (or in any way abuse) random Ukrainian civilians?

    Yeah, I think that's true. But that was obvious after WW2 and when Germany was divided and occupied, don't see what is stopping them now except their own unwillingness to take out hand from sparkasse.

    It seems to use microwave sender, not EMP. Of course we can say that magnetic pulse and radio waves are two states of the same energy. But first drones have to be detected. Obviously Russia found that machine guns were not good enough and learnt the lesson. I am also sceptical about hoe effective this is at higher altitudes.
