Has anyone noticed the amount of territory Russia occupies is almost the same distance from the border across occupied Ukraine? Can they not extend beyond a certain point?
>>53562355It's the distance you reach without refueling
>>53562355>yfw Russians are actually robots who can't fight beyond the reach of their extension cord.
Yes, we noticed their logistics were utter rubbish back in the first week. Congratulations on finally catching up.
>>53562355why dont china help russia? russia did everything they could to modernize china during cold war until eventual sino soviet split?
>>53562355Yes, it's been known since the first few days of the war.
Yeah. It seems like a coincidence though. If you looked at the map closely you would see that front line is mostly terrain which is hard to cross like rivers, forests or dense cities.
>>53562410China doesn’t care for Russia. Also gib back Outer Manchuria gwailo.
Why are they attacking exclusively along the southern border? Why don't they do a full-scale country-wide envelopment?
>>53562355my vacuum cleaner is similar
>>53562410China really doesn't want to put it's balls in the same vice as Russia all for the sake of a war of conquest that doesn't even benefit China. Similarly, if China went full chimp-out over Taiwan and was getting dragged through the literal and metaphorical mud as hard as Russia is currently, Russia probably wouldn't be sprinting over to help out either. >>53562464>Why don't they do a full-scale country-wide envelopment?Did you take a vacation to mars or some shit a few months ago and only recently get back?
>>53562464Did you miss the first 5 weeks of the war?
>>53562486>>53562491I didn't really follow it but did they try it and got btfo?
>>53562513yeah they did. Including a poorly planned airdrop on Kiev
>>53562464why don't they simply march over to kiev and kill zelensky?
>>53562464Ukraine's main forces are on Donbass area. Defeating the Ukrainians there would destroy the majority of their more experienced troop and make the defnese of eastern Ukraine harder and harder
>>53562355It's the distance at which psychotronic radiation emitted by the Zikkurat becomes weak enough for Russians to break free from it's control
>>53562464Anon, they did, it ended poorly.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyiv_offensive_(2022)
>>53562464They couldn't manage the wider front with Kyiv as it was. If they spread out more, it would just make their difficult logistical train harder.
>>53562464Russians gave up the northen front when they realised that the Ukranians werent surrendering anytime soon. The fact that they gave up, shows how dangerous Russia is. Other armies would have stubbornly digged in and refuse to retreat.
>>53562410The Chinese/Russian alliance is one of convenience because currently both of them hate the West more than they dislike each other. If the West and NATO were somehow to collapse today Russia and China would be at each others' throats.
>>53562583other armies would have already won
>>53562410It’s more profitable, and therefore more in China’s interest, to just let Russia completely fuck itself over in Ukraine and then pick up the pieces afterwards then for Russia to actually win in Ukraine.
>>53562355Pizza delivery range. Or it should be, if they had any sense they'd outsource their logistics to Amazon deliveries and Domino's.
>>53562355Why does every image posted here continue to show fake blue Ukraine arrows in the north of Ukraine? Ukraine did not win this territory lol. Russian just withdrew and focused on the east. Remove these blue arrows and it shows you the real tide of the war. Russian advances have decimated and established firm control of all of eastern Ukraine including the DPR and LPR regions that Putin promised to liberate. According to Russians initially stated objectives they have already won. Yet, Western propaganda continues to make up "victories" for Ukraine. If I was Ukrainian I would be shitting myself. They haven't won a single victory and are just slowly losing more territory. At this rate Ukraine will be completely Russian by the end of the year.
>>5356235540km is about the maximum range of russian indirect fire, like the absolute pussies they are they've been shelling from inside Russia. Outside of Russian shelling range, their invasion force wanes.
>>53562672>Russian advances have decimated and established firm control of all of eastern Ukraine including the DPR and LPR regions that Putin promised to liberate.That is a real flowery way of admitting that they've barely been able to move the front from where they started in three months.
>>53562464When someone starts watching the anime but skips the first two seasons
>>53562410I like how shills are always like “why doesn’t everyone commit suicide with us after all we did as a different government generations ago!! Nobody owes you retards their loyalty. You offer nothing of value while endlessly making impotent threats.
>>53562537I heard they might encircle those forces in about 14 days
>>53562410Haven't you heard? China and Russia aren't allies.
>>53562410They do by leaking Ukie DJI drone coordinates to Russians.
>>53562672assuming the only way to win is via encirclement leads to needless deaths crossing narrow rivers
>>53562374Came here to post this./thread
>>53562666>Kermitanon was Satan all alongIt makes so much sense now
Why doesn't Russia just shoot down all the Ukrainian planes, blow up all the Ukrainian tanks, storm Kiev, kill/arrest Zellenskyy and occupy all of Ukraine?If they did that they would have already won the war but instead they keep doing these autistic "feint" and "columns of vehicles doing nothing" moves
>>53562355I hate these maps for doing the february 24-present. What the fuck is present? Someone maybe linking old maps, I always have to doublecheck this shit.
If Russian forces make the deliberate choice to end their offensive before the Ukrainian military forces them to do so, that decision would be a strong indicator of imminent annexation.
>>53562486Good one lol. More realistically, it would go like this:>USA: Sanction China! They are invading Taiwan!>EU: China invading a province of China? Take your meds schizo
>>53563190What's it like living in a world where the last three months didn't happen?
>>53563330what the fuck are those cope lines supposed to be?
>>53563330I really love the cope stripes on every city
>>53562410>no limits partnership?>no, limits partnership!
>>53563061PUTIN, HIRE THIS MAN
>>53563455It was supposed to represent what Russian forces were capable of threatening from their positions, so pure cope.
>>53562464They tried that with more troops focused in one area and that led to a new cope phase.
>>53563455>zone of military activitiesWhatever that's supposed to mean
>>53563118Is this gonna be the final stage of coping? Retreat to Russia and just go right back to pretending they're a mlitary superpower that can annex Ukraine any time?
>>53563581Keep in mind we are in year 70 of China celebrating that it won the Korean War
>>53563061You're the new Gerasimov replacement
>>53563608>invade country>get your shit kicked in, get your military kicked out>declare victory!Many such cases. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they did the same shit in Vietnam.
>>53563665I hope even the Chinese realize how bad they lost the Sino-Vietnamese War, but they probably just lie about it to save face.
>>53562583The cope is unreal
>>53563665Oh yes>Pol Pot spergs out and kills 3,000 Vietnamese civilians because he had apparently run out of Cambodians to kill that week>Vietnam invades Cambodia to overthrow Pol Pot>China declares Cambodia their most precious ally and invades Vietnam from the north to try to back him up>in three weeks they manage to make it a whopping 15km, losing at least 25,000 men in the process>they declare "Vietnam is defeated, the gates of Hanoi are open, we have completed our mission," and leave>Vietnam, visibly confused, finishes dismantling Pol Pot regime
>Why doesn't Russia justbecause they CAN'T or WON'T
>>53562464It failed because of overestimation and "best case scenario" thinking. They went into to a hostile country that has equal and sometimes better equipment and technology (not to mention complete information advantage thank you CIA) on the offensive. So you have Russian units going 1-1 odds against a veteran fighting force that has been at war for 8 years and trained by western forces, entrenched, and very fucking angry. They couldn't drown them in men because they didn't have enough men for the invasion and couldn't quickly twist the Ukrainian arm like in 2014 because of what was said above. No matter what happens next Ukraine can only really scale in power from here as the lend lease act is signed and the west is almost completely united against the Russians. The RF on the other hand cannot as the use up equipment they cannot replace (the old soviet inheritance of vehicles that they spend like a 16 year old girl in a strip mall and advanced optics and missiles) and their economy lags harder as glowies and the people of western countries that still import Russian gas are forced to stop buying it. The CIA doesn't gaf if Germans are cold they want the 2nd coming of the Golden Horde done and dusted.Most likely how this will end is that Russia tries to push for Novorossiya (what you see in the current gains rn) but get too cocky and end up losing them after a Ukrainian counteroffensive when their warmachine dries up, then Putin will either close off the country more and become much more authoritarian, or his Oligarchs and Generals realise they are next, shoot him in his head and continue to plunder Russia with their mafia state however while co-operating with the west more.This isn't concrete and there could be massive changes to the course of this war, but with how it's going and the Russian track record throughout recent and far out history it seems the most likely.
>>53563061I know this is a meme but for /int/ niggers I will explainThe feint shit is cope and due to incompetent leaders and lack of modern tech they east shit or their vehicles run out of supply. Everyone though the epic convoy was gonna storm Kiev but it sat there for like a month and then fucked off with the rest of the withdrawing Russian forces when the bungled the northern offensive.
>>53562410What does china gain from helping russia outside of ruining relations, probably giving Taiwan a reason to get nukes and losing shitton of money/tech in the meatgrinder?
>>53562672>Ukraine did not win this territory lol. Russian just withdrew and focused on the east.And what was the purpose of the offensive then? The push for Kyiv cost the russians greatly. Besides, they didn't retreat. They literally routed>Russian advances have decimated and established firm control of all of eastern Ukraine including the DPR and LPR regions that Putin promised to liberate.So Russia has managed to not take significant territory in 3 months of war? They already controlled most of that before the invasion>According to Russians initially stated objectives they have already wonThey haven't met a single stated objective you fucking mongrel. Not that they have actual objectives, just an extremely vague list to claim victory after their inevitable defeat
>>53562410You're an idiot. America did far more to modernize China and turn them into an economic powerhouse than shithole Russia ever could.
>>53562410China is furious about this because it's fucking up Xi's plans. Ukraine is an agricultural exporter to china, which needs to import food. In fact Ukraine was one of the few non-western-aligned countries that allowed China to use competition to keep prices low. They had defensive treaties with Ukraine and also poured a ton of money and diplomatic effort into putting Belt+Road through Ukraine. Then russia bombed it lmao.So now China is going to get raked over the coals for food competing with shit like Egypt in markets that are hostile to them, they've lost their good will with the Ukies because they sided with the russians, the west has shown it's willing to bleed to inflict greater losses on their enemies and is looking over foreign actors that aren't the US with a far greater scrutiny. The US is also enjoying a sudden spike in trust, and they are firmly opposed to chinese growth and expansion. All while Xi is up for 'reelection' with the party.
>>53564212>And what was the purpose of the offensive then?dont make me say the f word lulululu
>>53562537Fun fact: the bulk of their forces in the east during the actual invasion was, without irony, "a feint", a distraction for the invasion force coming from the north that was supposed to take Kiev and end it all within a week or little bit more. That was their best troops. Now they're having to defend Luba and Donhezuela after having their forces ripped apart.Things aren't going well.
>>53563190More like little emperor one child policy bugmen twinks drown in the sea as China embarrasses itself on the world stage without the need for American trannies to do anything.
>>53564363Xi bet on the wrong horse and he lacks the spine to admit it. Ukraine should cut off China from all food exports as punishment.
>>53562542 Oh I get it. Is that why they are erecting Lenin busts in every fucking village center they get their hands on? Like some altars to worship some false god. Those are actually pylons that conduit the mausoleum radiation to expand the vatniksphere, while turning areas under its influence inhospitable to human life.
