GROZNY, November 15. /TASS/. Over 20,000 Chechen fighters have fought in Ukraine since the start of Russia’s special military operation and 9,000 of them are currently on the frontline, Chechnya’s Head Ramzan Kadyrov said on Tuesday.
During the spring/summer the Chechens represented 60% of the content for Russia on social media :lol:

The rest was the DPR, and the Russian army was barely visible.

People's helmet for reservists: 6B47 from the set "Ratnik". It is a more simplified version.

Just how gullible must you be to believe that Gucci kit ain't going to be taken off them the moment the cameras stop rolling :roll:

They're going to the meat grinder with the kit their grandfathers would have had.

Reservists holding defensive positions at Z-Oblast with MG and AK-12s.

https://vk.com/bo_reserve?z=video-12475 ... -124751034

Right now the DPR/LPR are doing the majority of the attacks in the Ukraine.

The majority of reported 89,000 reservists are training in the rear area with a portion already in defensive positions. It is looking like the deployment of reservists are in the main as reinforcements for Russian army units. So my theory that the reservists will turn the BTG into a 'regimental tactical group' as times go by seems to be what's going on.

Besides unverified claims that reservists were operating with a naval infantry brigade in the attack the rest are of defensive deployment. I have not found any evidence that the reservists are being used independently of long-established formations in the Ukraine.

The Smolensk Mobiks in your video:

certainly appear less uniform in battledress and according to their spokesman worse armed than the happy little Orcs in Cult Icon's Putinkin Village frames.

Maybe their Orcficers sold the Regiment's gear to finance their lifestyle far from front.

Curious, according to Russian reporters the "paratroopers" I assume airborne units, were the ones covering the withdrawal and the last to leave.
I am unclear about the VDV OOB at Kherson

They have 4 Airborne divisions and 4 Airborne brigades. I know that elements of the 76ths, 106th, and 38th were at Kherson west bank, and the Oblast itself as a whole has combat battalions from several Naval infantry brigades.


1. Command of the Airborne Forces
2. 38th Guards Control Brigade
3. 45th Separate Guards Special Purpose Brigade (2 OSP)
4. 7th Guards Air Assault Division (9 air assault division, orb and detachment)
5. 76th Guards air assault division (9 dshb, orb and otb)
6. 98th guards airborne division (6 airborne assault division and orb)
7. 106th guards airborne division (6 airborne assault brigade and orb)
8. 11th separate guards air assault brigade (2 air assault brigade, air assault brigade and orb)
9. 31st separate guards air assault brigade (2 air assault brigade, air assault brigade and orb)
10. 83rd separate guards air assault brigade (2 air assault brigade, air assault brigade and orb )
11. 150th Separate Repair and Rehabilitation Battalion
12. 35th Separate Medical Detachment of the Airborne Forces
13. Ryazan Guards Higher Airborne Command School
14. 242nd Training Center of the Airborne Forces
15. 309th Center for Special Parachute Training of the Airborne Forces

Currently the vast majority of Russian motor-rifle and armored are in Russia training with the reservists and volunteers. However it seems like a somewhat higher proportion of the Naval infantry and VDV are still operational in Ukraine.
Thanks for the reply, you know much more about the OOB's than I do. I only heard repeatedly about VDV in action in Kherson, allegedly for a long time without relief, and 'paratroopers', the only specific mention of a unit I saw was to the 11th VDV Brigade in Kherson region in early October.

I note the two guys closest on the right side of the table wear Ukrainian ministry of defense patches, the next two guys clockwise, the Z type patches are pasted on from a different image, and they wear American camouflage uniforms, very suspicious image, originally posted on twitter by a British guy who works in Kiev.

It looks like the Russians are setting up Russian-style militarized police/national guard in the LPR

Combat training of the mobilized units of the RCB protection of the airborne forces


https://rutube.ru/video/61259e31752b6cc ... 8360a610a/

"training of mobilized units of the RCB protection of the airborne forces at one of the training grounds in the rear area of the special operation

◽️ During the training, actions are practiced as part of a unit armed with Bumblebee rocket infantry flamethrowers. These weapons are especially effective for disabling lightly armored and automotive equipment, destroying enemy manpower.

🎯 To support the advancing motorized rifle unit, flamethrowers deliver several strikes with thermobaric rocket-propelled grenades on conditional targets and, under the cover of small arms fire, move to a new position."

"We Have No Regiment Any More, 2,500 People Have Died'

The mobilized from Lipetsk region has described the catastrophic losses of the Russian army.

Twenty temporarily mobilized Russians from Lipetsk Region who escaped from positions near Svatove in Luhansk Region are facing criminal charges of desertion. The remaining 2,500 people from their battalion have been killed.

The Russian publication of Verstka quoted a relative of one of the servicemen as saying this. The publication also released an audio recording of a phone conversation of one of the mobilized men who managed to survive.

"We are just meat, just fucking meat, we are not considered to be people. The guys come, from one battalion alone, 15 people, 20 people come and say that's it, there are no more guys, our battalions are gone. Yesterday the commander told us: "Guys, you have to hold on for two weeks". How can we hold on for a fortnight, when we are here for 12 or so days, and we already don't have a regiment, 2500 people have died. Yesterday they took away our arms, we are already considered deserters. Those who were carrying the guys out, who are here now, say: "Put us in prison, we won't go there any more". They really say they would rather serve 10 years, but they will be alive. And they are told: 'You guys are deserters, you didn't follow the order, you left your officers who even were not there'," says the mobilized man.

Verstka claims that they are soldiers of the 2nd Commandant Company of the 362nd Motorized Rifle Regiment, who were trained at the Air Force training centre in Voronezh.
