For the first time, Putin himself nonchalantly confirmed that Ukraine’s intelligence headquarters were hit: As well as a video where Verkhovna Rada deputy Alexei Goncharchenko, whilst drunk, confirms in the affirmative to the question of whether the GUR HQ was hit:
Thanks for your analysis, comrade. It’s the best I’ve seen penetrating the fog of war. The spring offensive has echoes of summer 2021, when the regime said the taliban was not advancing and Kabul was not in danger.
Well I guess if you run into a bunker in the Ukraine you will die.
Well researched and argued Simplicius, thank you.

RUMORS from the Ground in Ukraine: "Tonight"
There's a TON of RUMORS coming from the ground in Ukraine all saying "Tonight." It is believed these RUMORS are about the much-vaunted (but yet to happen) Ukraine Spring Counter-Offensive. But these rumors hint at something new: "Inside Russia."
We all know that the first casualty of war is truth. It is entirely possible that this is a false RUMOR, perhaps even deliberately released in Ukraine as a Psy-Op against Russia; maybe to get their stress levels up.
But what's coming out from people on the ground in several parts of Ukraine is all very consistent: "Tonight."
The new twist is that the "Counter-Offensive" will actually begin "inside Russia." Specifically, the RUMOR says "the opening salvo is going to be inside Russia, before the offensive will actually happen on the front lines in Ukraine."
I am carefully reiterating this is a RUMOR for those who cannot discern very well. It may be false. But again, it is something very prominently being spoken on the ground in Ukraine and that, in and of itself, makes it unusual, and worth passing along.
Incisive and excellent analysis. This is very much the Spanish Civil War. Where the Great powers tested their weapons and used the blood of Spain to do it. Except this time, the fucking Nazi's are losing. Franco/Zelensky will not have a 40 year Reich.
A favorite part of this was the cost of a drone compared to a Patriot. Launch a lawnmower for 10K and have the Uke's blow three million to "possibly" shoot it down.
This is the AK47/M16 writ large. The Americans inventing an ink pen that would work in space by spending 1 million. And the Russians taking a pencil. And the Russians win that debate hand down.
I have a personal insight here. I am a retired E-5. US Army. 1978 to 1982. Not exactly a high water mark for the Armed Services. I joined because everyone in my family did a hitch. And I was an angry young man, and the Army found a use for me. A friend's son joined the Army in 2019. He finished his hitch and is back. I went to see him. He was stationed at Schofield Barracks with the 25th Infantry. I was appalled. He was fat when he left. He was fucking round when he got back. Fat and soft. Serving in the 25th. And did nothing except talk about all his paperwork wars with the Army. Which I gather is standard. I was speechless.
I believe something big was hit and it happens on a much more regular basis than we are led to believe. Begginsky, Zaluzhny, Syrsky, and others are nowhere to be seen in Ukraine. They are either running from one country to another, posting videos which we have no clue of the actual date of recording, or just reenacting a scene from a Weekend at Bernie's. I personally hold no sympathy as these are all dead men walking and it already is clearly deserved.
Ukies fucked around and found out
The Pentagon leaks from April projected that Ukraine would run out of air defense missiles by mid-May, sooner for the S-300 and BUK systems.
Clearly that has not happened and significant air defense activity is happening over Ukraine.
Any analysis of how this has happened?
I haven't been able to pay much attention to the line the past couple weeks. Are the Russians making any pushes right now or simply digging in waiting for the Ukrainian offensive and reinforcing Bakhmut?
We still don't have any real proof that Zaluzhny is alive, as that video of "Zaluzhny" could've been part of a set of prerecorded videos made of all of Ukraine's leadership in case they bite the dust to keep their image alive, or it could've been a body double (not only do "Zaluzhny"'s eyes look wrong, but so do the frown lines on his forehead which look completely different in that video, and "Zaluzhny"'s hair looks different in its density, hairline, and how it parts), so it's not impossible that Budanov got got too, we'll just have to wait and see if Budanov keeps missing meetings with NATO officials and missing public appearances as Zaluzhny has.
Perhaps Ukies finally told NATO that from now on they'll only fight using NATO doctrine which is to have massive air support and some semblance of air superiority. So, send us 1,000 F-16s so we can fight like NATO. In his latest interview of Alastair Crooke by Judge Napolitano, Crooke alluding to what he was about to write said G-7 and minions are all hooked on the false "We're Winning" Narrative which is a supreme delusion yet is not being overturned by reality. Any addition of F-16s will only serve to extend the combat and will not help Ukraine.
Given what Russia's been destroying, not only are they delaying any possible Ukie attack, but are priming the area for their own move. Further, Medvedev's three possible outcomes written on his Telegram is also important to consider. Then there's what Lavrov's said over the last two pressers held in Africa.
NATO complains their soldiers aren't getting any "training," but they're not doing any dying either, which they'd be doing in the same numbers as Ukies with no air cover or heavy artillery support.
I’m not a military expert nor do I claim to be. I’m just a working stiff trying to put food on the table. So I’ll throw my two cents in for what it’s worth. The Russians are brilliant. Period. An example to me is how they whacked the Patriot system. From what I can see, the Russians lobbed more missiles than what the Patriots can handle. So, correct me and call me dumb and stupid, the Patriots spew out 30 missiles while the Russians throw 35. 30 that are hit and 5 remaining that whack them into oblivion. So…that’s how I see it.
Believe it or not the 3.2 Richter quake epicentre Kiev was caused by Ukr moving huge amounts of new western weapons through Kiev, according to one obviously concussed🤕 Kiev official. This war can be a very dark comedy at times.
