Russian invasion of Ukraine


Recommended Posts

I think the point is the island is indefensible. It's in a strategic position but it's just a lump of rock with nowhere to hide. Both sides can attack it at will, neither side can defend it.

Maybe but the propaganda value of pictures of a Ukrainian flag being raised will be difficult to resist. Some of the weapons the Ukrainians could land by speedboat easily enough like Stingers might be easier to keep safe than weaponry like the Pantsir system that the Russians had installed if there are any bunkers left intact on the island.

You put a flag up on it then.

But we could maybe try a bit harder, eh?

...and a third ammo depot in Makiivka near Donetsk apparently, not a good day for Vlad so far:

Have to wonder how different the last three months would have been if NATO had decided to supply HIMARS back in March.
