I've read Ukraine's command and control was integrated into NATO
They can issue commands down to the unit


Like in real time right now? Thats pretty significant. That would mean the US is helping with intel and coordination? That may actually be something Putin didn't consider, though it would fall under worst case contingencies. Cool if its true.

Zelinsky just offered Ukrainian criminal prisoners with skills the option to earn a free pass by using those skills to defend Ukraine right now.

Newsweek and TGP have it.

"Don't make bets you can't cover."

If only someone could convince Putin of the same.

Great idea. They have a lot of suppressed energy and extra motivation.
He could release them all and use the guards too.

Just saw this, which confirms my comments earlier about no further advancement by Russia since yesterday...


The Russian advance on Kyiv remains “basically… where it was yesterday” according to a senior defense official.  
The Russians are not only facing “fuel and sustainment” problems, but are showing signs that they are running out of food, the official claimed.  
The official cited a number of possible reasons for the stall, including Ukrainian resistance.
The official also cited the possibility that the Russians were pausing their advance by choice because they could be “regrouping, rethinking, reevaluating.” CNN reported earlier that the US believes Russia is resorting to heavier firepower and more devastating weapons systems 


www.cnn.com...



Nearly 100,000 russians found themselves in the mother of all traps more than 36 hours ago now.

Defenseless.

Can't move in any direction without suddenly exploding.



Trapped by geography.

Surrounded by angry Ukrainians with Javelins.

With Stingers keeping russia's planned air cover on the other side of the border.

This putin fellow sure is a 5d mastermind.

Does he do birthday parties.

I wish you were correct, but I don't think you are. Though, I admire the bravado; if only that was enough to win a war.

NOBODY wants to face prisoners with a path to earn freedom through body counts.

History has some examples, none were pretty.

Prisioners just don't have any reason to let up, surrender or retreat until the enemy is all dead.

Brutal. For both better and worse.

Ukraine is certainly trying to leverage that into 'winning' a war, but I agree, not nearly enough for that.

So gotta make hay while it's still possible

And make sure russian parents know exactly what happened.

Putin isn't ever going to tell them.

Some of us were screaming it from the ATS roof for years.

Putin did not choose wisely.

Convoy has been stuck in the same place for 2 days, but fog of war and all...

Can't think of a single way this is good for putin though.

Thing is he chooses to continue down the same path.

Which is insanity really.
