Reports today that Russia lost an entire battalion, with all of its supporting armour and vehicles, in a botched attempt at a river crossing of the Donbas.

But - don't worry you away team supporters. I'm sure there's lots of good news for the Russian army. As of course there has been for every one of the 78 days so far. :eyecrazy:

Two or more companies make up a battalion, which has 400 to 1,200 troops and is commanded by a lieutenant colonel. The battalion is the smallest unit to have a staff of officers (in charge of personnel, operations, intelligence, and logistics) to assist the commander.


Don’t you find it a little bazaar that a battalion is anywhere from 400 to 1,200 troops, and yet we saw no dead bodies all over the place, but instead a dozen or so various kinds of destroyed military equipment. :wink:

The western propaganda machine is on super charge. Whilst Israel is killing innocent civilians and attacking funeral processions.

I don't expect you - or anybody who supports the Russian invasion of Ukraine - to accept any reports I might happen to post. Which is why I don't usually bother. That's of course the problem with the situation. Conflicting opinions and interpretation of news reports. Although, I don't recall you ever having any concerns at all about anything the great man posted. Including his fervent desire for nuclear war. "Family" or some such twaddle.

Nevertheless, there's still quite a lot of news which at the very least suggests things aren't going Russia's way. No?

Given it's day 79 of the Russian invasion of a neighbouring country - Ukraine - I just wonder whether there will ever come a time when people like you will concede that.

How's the Ukrainian body count today. Did it come up to expectations? Good news if so I imagine.

If it’s any consolation, I had already seen this report earlier today and dismissed it as propaganda way before you had posted it. :D

Actually, I am surprised you did not pick on the fact there were no hundreds of dead bodies spewed all over the claimed area of destroyed Russian battalion. Connecting the dots can be very helpful before posting on here to convince the rest of us and not just yourself. :wink:

Did I also say that there was no telling as to which side those destroyed military equipment belongs to? :wink:

It pay to be cynical at times, no? :wink:

Oh, Heaven forbid I sbould reach the dizzy heights of trying to convince.

I've learned enough in here to think in terms it was all quite possubly staged by the Ukranian military. You know, like the moon landings. Probably when they had a day off from murdering hundreds of their own civilians. To make the Russians look bad.

So, any idea about today's Ukranian body count?

When debating, then YES, we listen to reply! :D

Is that not the whole purpose in debating? :roll:

When listening to understand, is when one accepts the news to be factual no matter what. :wink:

Not me! :D
