Theater of Military Operations (TMO) Day 208, 19/09/2022 (excerpt) 

Translated by Georg Stein


Zoya Kosmodemiánskaya. Soviet partisan, teenager, woman. These three conditions, added to the fact that her execution was, like so many others, the object of a public act of chastisement by the Nazis, led Stalin to erect her as a symbol of the role of women in the so-called "great patriotic war" of defense of the USSR against the German invasion in World War II. "Comrades, why are you so sad? I am not afraid to die, I am happy to die for my people [...] You are going to hang me, but I am not the only one. There are more than 200 million of us, you can't hang us all. My comrades will avenge my death. Germans, surrender before it is too late. Victory is ours.

Malaysia's economy grew by 8.9% in the second quarter, Vietnam by 7.7% and the Philippines by 7.4%. All cronies of whom? Russia and China. Meanwhile in Europe. The price of bread in the EU rose by 18% over the year - Eurostat.

Zelenski, convinced that more cities will be liberated, including those in Crimea. In a video speech, Ukrainian President Volodimir Zelenski has assured that he expects more Ukrainian cities, including those in Crimea, to be liberated after a successful counter-offensive by the Ukrainian army in the Kharkov region. "Izium, Balakliia, Kupiansk - these words are ringing everywhere," Zelenski said. "Mariupol, Melitopol and Kherson will also sound, and even more often and louder when we liberate them."

Somebody wake this guy up, his degree of insanity is harmful to the Ukrainian population.

The Lugansk Public Chamber proposes an urgent referendum on joining Russia. The Public Chamber of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People's Republic (LPR) in eastern Ukraine has called on the republic's leader Leonid Pasechnik to "urgently" organize a referendum on joining Russia. "The Public Chamber of the Lugansk People's Republic calls for an immediate holding of a referendum on the recognition of the LPR as a subject of the Russian Federation," reads the text of the document, quoted by TASS news agency. According to the document, entry into Russia will ensure the security of the territory amid a Ukrainian counteroffensive in the east of the country and "open new possibilities" for its reconstruction. "We are convinced that the initiative will be fully supported by the inhabitants of Lugansk, and the entry into the Russian Federation will not only be a triumph of historical justice, but will also ensure the security of the republic," the petition states.

Russia has begun targeted destruction of Ukrainian artillery, including Western supplies. Iran Express continues to work actively. "Strange" kamikaze drones named "Geran" caused a real panic in Ukrainian, Western and pseudo-Russian information segments. Everyone from Meduza to the Wall Street Journal reported the beginning of massive attacks on Ukrainian artillery and rocket launchers. There are confirmations of the destruction of M777 artillery systems, Akatsiya self-propelled guns and other types of artillery. Earlier, we wrote that drones, which are clearly repainted Iranian UAV Shahed-136, will be able to change the course of events on the front. The same thesis is now supported by weapons expert Scott Crino, who said that Iranian drones in Russia could be an important counterweight to modern enemy systems, such as HIMARS, which the United States sent to Ukraine. We dare to assume that in the near future we will not see new videos with funny walks of HIMARS during the day on Ukrainian routes. Now such movements are not entirely safe. In addition, Il-76 and Boeing 747 transport vehicles continue to arrive at Moscow airports from Iran. We hope that everyone will understand what they are carrying without additional explanations.

'Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.' This is Ursula's anger turned against Orban's refusal to join her Russophobic mania. A turning point in the chronicle of the EU hurtling towards petulance, disorder, fragmentation and ultimately disintegration..., the blonde dictator has decided to punish Hungary, she is in for a surprise, sister Ursulina von der Fockin.

...

Restrictions on the entry of Russians into Poland and the Baltics come into force. ... ... It must be traumatic for the Russians not to be able to visit Poland and the Baltic countries. If it weren't for them, no one would, well, now let them visit each other. And about one of them, Latvia: It could not collectively finance a TB2 drone for Ukraine. They needed 5 million € and raised only 862,693 €. 

...

Borrell, he has nothing more to say, and keeps talking bullshit all on his own. This guy is one of the most detested characters in the European Union, and rightly so, detested by the Europeans themselves. The energetic Borrell says: "We have to engage much more with the rest of the world .... The world is asking for more Europe. There is a demand that we Europeans commit ourselves more, but not only in words, but also in deeds"... . According to Borrell, among the countries of the so-called "global south" there is fear that the war in Ukraine will distract Europe from the rest of the international agenda and that all resources will be concentrated on this conflict at a particularly difficult time for many regions. ...

Nowhere in the world are they calling for more Europe, not even in ..., Europe.

On the ground:

Russian military conducts massive shelling against positions of Ukrainian militants: RF Armed Forces conducted 6 missile strikes and 28 air strikes, carried out more than 90 shellings from the MLRS against Ukrainian military targets. 

It became known that on August 23, Russian troops liquidated another foreign mercenary in the Kharkiv direction - Israeli citizen Andrey Glembotsky.

...

Part of the Ukrainian troops found themselves in a tactical encirclement near the borders of the Kherson region near the Ingulets River, the deputy head of the regional administration in an interview with RIA Novosti.

...

On September 18, in the direction of Kharkiv, Russian troops killed another commander of the Artillery Battery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Major Yuriy Gulik. A native of the Lviv region. He was apparently sent to Bandera by an Iranian kamikaze drone. 

A tattooed Nazi of the 72nd Specialized Brigade of the "Black Cossacks" was taken prisoner by the "musicians". He already regrets the tattoos: he was young and stupid. Who said there is no Nazism in Ukraine? The Wagner Orchestra keeps on playing. 

Russian troops are in the eastern part of Kupyansk.

Photo: Today for the first time there was something I did not like at all, that they managed to cross the river below on the left, and that they have reached Bilohorika (below right).

Russia does not start wars, it ends them.Today, is Russia closer to Kiev, or Ukraine to Moscow, if you have the answer, then we are clear.

  1. Great report, as always; but I can't accept that Russia leaves it to a crucial period in the operation to start flying in planeload after planeload of Iraninan 'drones'. (Question is-- what are they flying in. Mercenaries and their equipment?) Just read a book on Russian military history. Glantz is good. Russia don't roll that way; they've prepared for this war since at least 2007 going by Putin's speeches, and incorporating military technology from another country at the height of the engagement just doesn't make martial sense-- it's like apples and oranges, right? Similar to Russia importing 'N Korean ammunition', wtf??? Bananas and peaches, surely. Even the storage and cataloguing systems would be different. Unless of course all these countries-- the original countries hit by the US bioattack in late 2019-- have been preparing for years together, too. In which case, well..I guess y'all start gettin' ready to duck. Coz a harsh wind from the East is upon us, and it's gonna chill y'all to the bone. (Unless you're expecting Joe Biden and the State Department/DOD to save the day.
    Lmfao.
    Good luck with that.
