Central military district reservists perform infantry training with BMPs.

"🤝 Training at the training ground is held together with the crews of infantry fighting vehicles to practice interaction during the offensive. The BMP delivers the shooters to a given square, the personnel parachutes out of the machine on the move and deploys the order of battle to move deep into the enemy's defenses under the cover of a combat vehicle.
◽️ In addition, military personnel practice shooting at waist and growth targets from a place at a distance of up to 200 meters. This is one of the final stages of coordinating combat units."

"Mobilized marines overcame the psychological obstacle course in the Kaliningrad region.

◽️ The task is to form psychological stability. The mobilized overcame half a kilometer of the strip, including: ditches with water, destroyed buildings, underground tunnels and conditionally mined areas of the terrain."

An easier way than combat is to create millions of refugees, to get them to leave willingly. Their previous strategy in the spring with missiles and ground invasion expelled 8 million Ukrainians.

The other method to create more refugees would be to attack civilians with bombs, use chemical and biological weapons, and destroy their utilities system (energy, internet, water supply, etc.). More easy than that would be to use tactical nuclear weapons.

Odnorazovye is the Russian word for them.
You should take a trip to Ukraine along with the other 60-90 year old tough guys here- the Ukrainians would give all of you a AKM and a vest to hide your pot bellies :lol:
....which is more than a lot of Russians get.

The only tough guys here are the ones who venerate the RU army despite its rather poor performance. Hows your pot belly ?

"The other method" will result in an instant full-scale conventional intervention by NATO. 100% lead pipe lock. They will drive the terrorist forces completely out of Ukraine in a matter of weeks. Of course, they will not set foot on Russian soil.

Russian defense budget for 2023 is 159 billion USD, up from 111 billion in 2022. This is around 9% of GDP for 2023 and 3 times more than 2020. They seem to be forecasting the ending of the war in late 2023 or 2024.

The United States, during the Johnson years of Vietnam reached around 10% of GDP for defense. In the Korean war, it was 15% of GDP. In WW2 it was rivaled the civilian economy.

Who in The UK would use a 'fact' from The Daily Mail?

It is a well-know far-right fabricator of facts.

The US/UK media has been running news about Bakhmut for a week, mainly focused on calling it a 'meatgrinder' and claiming that the Ukrainians are running low on equipment and ammunition. This appears to be triggered by the sudden taking of a couple of villages south of the city. However the DPR/LPR has not reported any irregularities compared to fighting 2-3 weeks ago. They continue to report fairly low Ukrainian casualty claims.

Commentators on both sides even throw the idea that it is serious attempt at encirclement and capture of the city. Makes no sense. The fighting around Bakhmut looks more like a Soviet-style fixing operation. It has drawn in Ukrainian reserves and Russian artillery has plastered them. Also, the Russians have not been using significant forces or their operational reserve, it's still just Wagner PMC supported by DPR.

Seems to be a prerequisite for being a leader. One US President fell down 3 times on airplane steps and there is footage showing an ex-President with a suspicious 'adult diaper' type bulge under his pants. It takes 2 Americans to do what 1 Russian can do on his own!
