What Would Happen if the Russian Army Really Invaded the Ukraine?



We won’t name the author of this post, as he’s an active officer in the Russian forces, but he perfectly described the situation… “What would happen if the Ukrainian military faced the Russian army?” Some equipment is SPECIFICALLY designated with the letters of the Latin alphabet so as not to write their name, as mentioning them is undesirable for the author. However, I think that military people would understand what systems are in question.


“According to our Ukrainian partners, commenting on the latest ATO news, and referring to “intercepted data from Russian army reports”, today, they destroyed another division of the Russian army near Lugansk…”

I want to explain briefly to my Ukrainian colleagues about the modern Russian army, and about what’d happen if they faced it in reality, not in their wet dreams. Firstly, today, we use digital radio communication with local encryption. You can intercept it, but you can’t decipher it. The code changes on arbitrary unpredictable schedules. The Ukrainian forces and the VSN use older analogue systems, which one can intercept. Now, the Russian army has communication that was possible previously only on secure communication lines… the only thing that you can intercept is crackling and murmuring.

Secondly, if the Russian army were to face the Ukrainian forces, it’d be easy to determine. The first sign would be failure of all means of communication, full discharging of batteries in vehicles, tanks, and other equipment, at the same time, discharge of batteries in mobile phones, targets, and radio stations. Then, all electric circuits in all equipment would fry… all of it. This is EMP. All engines stall, no way to restart. This is how the system “X” works (to protect the author, we won’t name it), with a range of up to 20 kilometres (@13 miles). The second sign would be a complete failure of all systems using LCD monitors and all target-locating devices of air defence systems. This is how “Altair” works (this is open; we can name it). The third sign would be a failure to deploy in all guided missile weapons… from MANPADS to PTURS [anti-tank guided missiles]. Upon launching, the ammunition liquidates itself. This is a battalion complex “Z”… mounted on a MTLB [light armoured transporter], with a range of 15 kilometres (about 9 miles). The fourth sign is that’d be impossible to use drones and low-flying aircraft due to onboard electronics failure. This is system “Y”. Then, there’s the “Avtobaza”, which can forcibly land a drone.

What’d happen next? Dozens (hundreds, if necessary) of the latest combat helicopters would fly over all roads, hunting for armoured vehicles, trains, cars. We’d paralyse the railways and blow up bridges. We’d turn out the lights on the home front… by putting electrical generation stations out of service. Spetsnaz would liquidate civil and military leadership, both at the front and in the rear, eliminating individual leaders simultaneously. Roughly, this is how the Russian army conducts military operations today. Therefore, the wet dreams about the “hero-cyborgs” spitting flame on hundreds of Russian tanks are better left to science fiction writers.

5 February 2015. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… The First Official Act of Alexis Tsipras

00 Alexis Tsipras. 05.02.15


The first official act of Alexis Tsipras as Prime Minister of the Hellenic Republic was to lay flowers at the National Resistance Memorial. Hmm… who were the Greeks resisting? The Germans! Gee… aren’t they resisting the Germans today, too (many call the EU “the Fourth Reich” in reference to it having an almost-identical programme to the German economic policy for occupied Europe followed by the Nazis)? Tsipras was saying, “We’re not going to lay down and let the Germans fuck us again!” Mate this with President Putin’s personal invite to the Rodina… do I really have to spell it out for you? Tsipras had best watch his back… the Anglo Americans are sore losers…


5 February 2015. GOOFY Happenings at the 2nd Street OCA Cathedral in the City

00 Cathedral of Christ the Saviour Moscow interior


Read this. I’ll not comment on this. Hey, priests out there! Why dontcha send this link on to Bishop Michael asking for “clarification”… that might get some action. I’ll not make any bootless internet noise. Crazy world, ain’t it? Pass the jug! We all need a LOOOONG pull after reading this…


5 February 2015. The Anti-Vaxxers… You Needed PROOF that the GOP is a Bunch of Nutters?

01d Political Cartoons 08.11


Read this and this. The Republicans pandered to these kooks. Let’s keep it simple. No one has a right to harbour communicable disease. No one has the right to be a Typhoid Mary. The REAL Church is NOT against vaccination and public health measures (as far as the konvertsy are concerned, they’re marginal and peripheral, thank God). The Republicans who pander to the anti-vaxxers also call themselves “Pro-Life”… their support for these nuts gives you the true measure of that… oh, those Einsteins also believe that President Obama was born in Kenya, that Michelle Obama is a transsexual, and that were huge conspiracies behind the JFK assassination, 9/11, and covering up Area 51 (“They keep a real alien spaceship hidden there”). Need I say more? Pass the jug…
