      A Ukrainian soldier ran up to a nun, out of breath, he asked, Please may I hide under your skirt, I’ll explain later he said. The nun agreed. A moment later two military police ran up and asked. “Sister have you seen a soldier” The nun replied, he went that way. After the military police ran off, the soldier crawled out from under her skirt and said, “I can’t thank you enough, Sister, you see I don’t want to get mobilized, they've already forced us to stay in the country despite being bombed daily!. The nun said “I understand completely” The soldier added, “I hope I’m not rude but you have a great pair of legs! The nun replied, “if you looked a little higher, you would’ve seen a great pair of balls too. I don’t want to be forced to fight either. SLAVA UKRAINA

    It's still a good rifle especially with a good scope on it . I have a .243 varmint gun based on a Mauser 98 action that was designed in 1898 and my one was manufactured in 1902 . With some modification and a heavy alloy rail stock plus good handloads it shoots very accurately .

      Mosin-Nagants are fine for certain things if they are accurized, QC was garbage during manufacture, but they are still not up to modern combat. They are suitable for sporterization as civilian hunting rifles and as collector wall-hanger surplus rifles. Militarily all they are good for is ceremonial, training, and far-in-the-rear security duties for troops that should never have to use them in anger. That they are being issued out of Soviet stockpile to frontline combat troops today is frightening. It was replaced in the DMR role by the SVD in the 1960's. Insanity.

Steel pellets, sub sonic. Head shot, you’re down for the count. Zero flash, low noise and silenced to a whisper.

    4:42 That helmet is an STSh-81 "Sfera" helmet and it is a real design from all the way back in the Soviet Union times. Issued mostly to interior police and special purpose troops for anti-terrorism and urban combat, it consists of three separate titanium or steel plates. It's an older design, and looks odd because of its unorthodox construction, but it isn't necessarily a fake. (although commercial reproductions are made for airsoft or cosplay that offer zero protective capabilities and this could be one such example)

    It is a cultural problem. From my limited experience of spending 22 hours in Sheremeteyevo airport in Moscow and talking to everyone including the airport director, everything in Russia works with bribes and stealing government money. Everyone said corruption is worse now than Soviet times. The airport police would all gather under a giant no smoking sign to smoke cigarettes. The x-ray machines are permanently kept turned off to "save electricity", but I bet they were fake. Any cash or alcohol I had in my luggage was stolen by customs. The Russian airline provided a 3 meal credit because our connecting plane broke and had a 22 hour layover, but the airport managers took a cut of the money, so for 3 meals they gave me enough money for a bag of chips and a bottle of water. There were only a couple of benches and chairs in the whole airport, because someone stole the money for benches. From what I saw, bribery and corruption is as much part of the culture as not smiling for photos or drinking vodka.

      Russia attacked with a contingent of 120,000-180,000 soldiers plus a Seraratist force from eastern Ukraine, the 250,000-300,000 army of Ukraine.
      Moreover, they stretched these 120000 both along a huge front and in time, they were gradually withdrawn from the reserve for 2 weeks when they saw the failures of the forward detachments.
      Of these 120,000, not all of them were full-fledged army, many of them were more of a police force and were armed with parade uniforms, rubber batons, tear gas and plasma shields to disperse demonstrators.
      Putin did not plan a war, he planned a special operation where the Russian army intimidates everyone and changes the regime in Ukraine. How did the Taliban in Afghanistan when 70,000 Taliban dispersed the 300,000 Afghan army armed with American weapons.
      And the Russian Army, despite all its problems, has more modern weapons than the Taliban!
      In 2014, Kharkov, captured several hundred rebels and held it for several days, in 2014 the entire Odessa fleet temporarily went over to the side of the Russian Federation until the commander of the fleet was arrested by the Ukrainian authorities for treason.
      The Russian Federation has no reason to believe that 120,000 soldiers and modernized tanks will not be enough to capture Ukraine.

    It is still hard to believe, that what's going on is already a history. Glad that estimations, about the time given to Ukraine, were wrong. Even for myself it was a surprise, that our army endured under such pressure.
    I'll never forget the morning wake up from my mother with: "Wake up, the war has begun". The dread that rushed into my blood stream, when I looked for the news in my phone and TV. When the city became "dead" at the rush hour and you can feel with your skin how everyone is scared and rush to ATMs.
    Hours were so stretched, that it felt years to finally reach the evening, where you finally get a mental breakdown from all those news, that you consumed through the daylight, and the fear of unknown.
    The first night, when you sleep fully clothed and wake every hour to check the news, to see what's going on and how close the enemies to your city.
    The second day you pack all you can and just sit in front of TV, donate all money from your bank account to the army and scroll news on a phone, all day till midnight.
    The only thing that helped to disctract from this, for a short time, was a hot shower.
    Recall, that on the fourth day, one channel on TV suddenly switched from 24/7 news to a Harry Potter and The Gobllet of Fire at midnight time. That was the only time you would fall asleep and wake up next morning to a Harry Potter still being aired. For 2 weeks.)

    "The" mosin was developed way further and became a very decent weapon family. But ofc it is a bolt action and is in no way or form even comparable to modern weapons. There was a reason why the soviets pushed for the SVT-38 and other semi-automatic weapons at the beginning of WW2.
    These types of weapons are "partisan" weapons. They should not be used by a professional army.
    Imagine you are a trooper getting issued one of those and the enemy side uses modern small arms. A trooper with almost no basic training non the less. While you fumble your 5- round stripper clip into your guns chamber the enemy almost instantly swaps out their 30 or 60 round magazines and bullets fly above you. There is no way a russian push can even slightly penetrate a fortified ukrainian position with theses types of guns. There is zero suppression from a couple of bullets fired every couple of seconds. A single AR has more pushing power.
    You can't breakthrough with artillery fire, airstrikes or rocketstrikes. Those tactics open gaps, sure but it is for infantry and tanks to exploit those. With the degrading russian tank stockpile and the sorry state of its infantry equipment it makes sense why the russian general stuff resorted to terror striking ukrainian cities.

    It blows my mind that Russia didn't take inventory of their invasion force beforehand. Like how do you not have equipment and arms when you are the country invading? They had all the time to prepare for this and no one thought about getting the equipment in fighting shape beforehand? I am no general or military man but if I was in charge of an invasion my first step would be to check how much equipment we have, how well it's operating and what is actually useful. Logistics and preparation go such a long way. Imagine expecting someone to fight for you when you give them cardboard body armor.

      Moreover, they stretched these 120000 both along a huge front and in time, they were gradually withdrawn from the reserve for 2 weeks when they saw the failures of the forward detachments.
      Of these 120,000, not all of them were full-fledged army, many of them were more of a police force and were armed with parade uniforms, rubber batons, tear gas and plasma shields to disperse demonstrators.
      Putin did not plan a war, he planned a special operation where the Russian army intimidates everyone and changes the regime in Ukraine. How did the Taliban in Afghanistan when 70,000 Taliban dispersed the 300,000 Afghan army armed with American weapons.
      And the Russian Army, despite all its problems, has more modern weapons than the Taliban!
      In 2014, Kharkov, captured several hundred rebels and held it for several days, in 2014 the entire Odessa fleet temporarily went over to the side of the Russian Federation until the commander of the fleet was arrested by the Ukrainian authorities for treason.
      The Russian Federation has no reason to believe that 120,000 soldiers and modernized tanks will not be enough to capture Ukraine.

    Igor Strelkov, who appears in this video, is also known as Igor Girkin. He was recently convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, along with two others, for the missile strike which brought down flight MH17 in 2014. I understand there is a reward of $150,000 for finding him and handing him in (to the Dutch court which convicted him or the Ukrainian government, who would pass him to them). So if you are short of cash, and have some spare time, give it a go. I last heard of Igor fighting in Ukraine as a volunteer in the Russian army.

    My dad has a colleague who was drafted into the war, he is 20 now, he had a class of 16 students and only 3 returned with one being captured. he was assigned into a sniper division and they used mosin nagant rifles with modern scopes (these are the same rifles the Soviet Union used in ww2 against Germany). You guys have probably heard of the Russian army using maxim machine guns and you probably have seen a few videos of them, well I thought there were just a few of these machine guns and weren’t used en masse, but they are. The colleague said he was posted in an entrenchment system and he would go around being a sniper, he said he saw many maxim machine guns and could hear them being used a lot. This is because it turns out that the maxim machine gun actually supports one of the most common machine gun rounds used by the Russian army which is why they are using the maxims so much. The reason he was sent back home was because he suffered two gun shot wounds and 2 concussions.

      @Obi-Wan Kenobi They are getting pushed back mostly due to lack of experience, supplies (ammo, food, etc.) and overwhelming amounts of donated equipment, not because they are using an old but apparently still reliable weapon. The reason I say its a good idea is because of the abundance of ammo and because a gun is a gun, it's going to kill regardless of the age and of course if it's reliable and easy to use then it makes sense to use it. Also NATO do use weapons that date as far back as 1919 in the form of the M2 and M1919 browning MG's.

    The use of Mosin Nagant probably more like a personal choice. The 7.62x54R is a widely available caliber everywhere. Its basically the standard hunting caliber in East Europe. The PKM classes (machine guns) also has the same ammo which is again widely available in military storages. Just because the design is old those rifles could be pretty brand new, just taken out from grease, stored somewhere in decades. They also use it back home for hunting, so knowing a gun is again a plus. Do not underestimate a weapon just because it's design is old. Knife is pretty much an old design, and its still count as a weapon.

      "Knife is pretty much an old design, and its still count as a weapon." thats a terrible comparison however.
      I agree that the mosin nagant is an excellent rifle and the 7.62x54r is an extremely powerful round and even more so than the NATO .308/7.62x51 but compared to modern bolt action rifles its not so great. The bolt isnt as smooth as most of these rifles are really old, and i highly doubt they've replaced the old barrels with modern ones that would help with accuracy and distance. And thats not even including the ammo probably not being nearly as consistent as NATO counterparts since snipers from NATO countries use their own custom ammo and know what they're firing. I cant imagine a country that doesnt have enough of something as basic as socks, giving their recon units custom ammunition for their mosins.

    I've been waiting for a video like this to really explain what happened with Russia and its military. This is a very well done and informative video on the subject. I'm sure more will come out as time goes on as well. It's incredible to me that Russia had the world so well duped, but then again the Soviet Union was always doing the same thing and Putin is a product of that himself. However, I assumed he would not be so foolish as to actually pull the curtain back and let the world see the sorry state.
    Putin is such a cunning politician in most other regards, but I suppose everyone makes a mistake and Putin has been in power so long he has become detached from what the reality of the situation is. Evidence to Putin being unaware just how bad things were is the fact that he is changing his inner circle and in some cases those members are going missing entirely. And of course the ones suffering from this are soldiers who don't want to be there and of course the Ukrainian people.
    As winter looms, I imagine things will only get worse.

      @Gitami C Ursula, "mistakenly" said that there are more than 100k ukrainian soldiers killed, not long after that the statement disappeared. A day later a Russian Telegram channel made a post with a chart and photos of thousands of obituaries of Ukrainian soldiers that can be found online, the total number was 107k. However, the ukros are denying it and the officials are lying that the casualties are only 10k... Considering that most of the dead ukrainian soldiers are treated like vanished without a trace, because by doing so the government is not obligated to pay to the victims families, we can get a picture of what the actual death toll given by the ukros is.

    The ones you show where they have poor helmets and body armour and stuff those are from front line troops which in obvious sense front troops don't have the best but the special troops have the best think about the samurai era their front are not good as it is but their elite is so it's no doubt Russia still has good stuff for others but not for all and another not because it's seen in few doesn't mean it's for all of them already

    It might be unbelievable to see so many things failing due to maintenance, but to be honest high end tanks, trucks, and aircraft require a very significant amount of highly trained crews to support their operation. For example for each individual fighter jet sortie you will typically have between 20-50 technicians dealing with the fuel, inspections, engine maintenance, repair, rearmament around the clock. Much older equipment, like the simple truck or less sophisticated tanks, requires less frequent maintenance and fewer support personnel; but they still require people trained in proper procedures and quality components (tank tracks fall off pretty easily if you use 40-60 year old spare parts, or don't know the people with knowledge of the 'tricks' to making them last). And then when you use that older equipment you can't expect them to perform up to the speeds and capabilities of newer models.

    Reminded of a story a friend told me when he lived in Russia. he needed a washing machine asked his Russian counterpart what to buy. He told to buy this one. 3 weeks later it broke. he fixed it. He went to the Russian and asked why did you say this was a good buy. The response "Its easy to fix." That is an interesting mind set.

      @Max Max You say that like agreeing this is a proxy war is some kind of checkmate. Of course both sides in the war (pre-2022) were proxies.
      Also second line Russian standards are still pretty low. The VDV were the only sizable pre-war force, that was reasonably equipped by western standards.

    The most painful thing for them was their dramatic loss of the equipment they could get started. Equipment that will take them multiple decades to replace. In order to have enough to defend their territory in the event of a NATO conflict they would have to pull off a mass production miracle to replace current losses. As it currently stands they do not have enough equipment to defend against a serious invasion and would have to use tac nukes immediately. Not even a paper tiger more like a wet kleenex tiger now.

      @Trokgorny Ball There is an enormous difference between the two. The US military is modern, well-stocked, top tech, battle tested, repeatedly trained, etc. The US military is exponentially more lethal. Russia has always thrown their soldiers and civilians toward the fire as cannon fodder.

      @Hero4fun I mean can you blame them? Look at how many idiots eat up Trump's BS and they have unlimited access to the internet unlike Russians. And they have been protesting. Difference is if they start showing up with weapons Putin wouldn't hesitate to have the army open fire on them all. The fact that they are protesting at all is impressive since they could get locked up for life and there's nothing stopping it from happening.

      Russian are being lied to, but they should be able to do something about it if they all protest, but lots of them still belief kremlin's propaganda.
      Get out of the propaganda is the first step, second the protest, third storm the corrupted government's place.
