Ukraine - Russia Conflict

Kill markings on the side of an element of a Ukrainian Patriot surface-to-air missile system. Silhouettes of two combat jets and three helicopters that were downed in a single day are highlighted, but ones reflecting ballistic and cruise missile and drone shootdowns are also plainly visible.


This is just getting embarrassing. You guys should have bought something more substantial for air defence, like a toaster.

On several occasions, confirmed by video evidence, Russia has targeted dummy air defense systems. It seems that more than once, dummy IRIS-T SLM systems have worked as planned and been attacked by Russia, consuming valuable one-way attack drones and confusing Russian forces. At the same time, Russian forces appear to have also launched attacks against genuine IRIS-T SLMs, at least once, although the results were inconclusive.

Russia trading gold for Shaheds.

It is noted that the Iranian side announced the starting price of the Shahed attack drone at 23 million roubles per unit (about US$375,000). However, during the negotiations, an agreement was reached at the level of 12 million roubles per unit, when ordering 6,000 units (about US$193,000) or 18 million roubles (about US$290,000) when ordering 2,000 units.

According to other published documents, at least part of the Russian Federation's financial transactions and payments with Iran are made in gold.

Fire at ZhBK-1 plant in Belgorod as result of suspected missile strike​

Flight of Ukrainian SCALP missiles over the S-300 air defense system, overview of the situation. Footage of the flight of two Ukrainian Storm Shadow or SCALP missiles of British-French production has been published. Above the Russian S-300 or S-400 air defense system in Crimea. The missiles were allegedly flying towards the Belbek airfield. Let's start with the fact that from the video it is not at all clear to what degree of readiness the air defense system was. Soldiers are visible walking, an operator looks out from one car, and from another, soldiers got out and are standing next to the car. The flight of two missiles in this situation is quite possible. The fact is that the S-300 or S-400 air defense system should be equipped with a 40V6MD mobile tower, with a 76N6 low-altitude detector designed to detect low-flying targets, but they are not in the video. Ideally, for better detection of low-flying targets, the S-400 air defense system should receive data from AWACS aircraft or balloons. Without these systems, the complex may simply not see low-flying targets in a timely manner. It is also worth noting that the S-400 air defense system should be covered by the Pantsir-S1 air defense system or the Tor-M2 air defense system, which are more effective against low-flying targets. According to the latest data from specialized resources, in the video of the S-400 air defense system, the complex did not include a 40V6MD mobile tower with a target illumination station, which is why it was not possible to hit the missiles in time.

Rare footage of the Su-34 attack and the explosion in the air of the Russian FAB-500M62 aerial bomb has been published. The video shows an attack with four bombs on Ukrainian army hangars used for storing equipment. The video was filmed in Volchansk in the Kharkov region. Notice that the third bomb exploded in mid-air. The FAB-500M62 aircraft bomb contains 213 kilograms of explosive.
