F(unny) Man at the Saker's blog beat me to it, damn))
Couldn't be more true. The reports of VSU's hardware increasingly being immobile due to lack of fuel are pouring in. So, good ol' truism is truism for a reason. In related news, economics first and yet another truism, while dogs bark, the caravan passes on:
India is stepping closer to setting up an alternative payments system to maintain its trade with Russia, identifying a potential bank, as a top panel examining the issue recommended prioritising edible oil and fertiliser imports as well as payments owed to India, an official aware of the development has said.
Hindustan Times no less. People ask me all the time: what about dedollarization. Here it is in its full blown glory. That is why Jake Sullivan threatens China:
And while Western media continue to spread fakes from 404, Jake Sullivan better learn (don't hold your breath) the actual correlation of economic and military potentials between what increasingly forms as isolated and fast declining West, headed by the US, and the rest of the world. And here are some pictures for Western mercenaries (primarily good at shooting defenseless civilians) to consider in terms of what I write for many years. These are from Yavorov Range where CIA and NATO "advisers" were training Neonazi forces and now were drilling combat cohesion for mercenaries' "units". As some of those "soldiers of fortune" admit--180 of them are gone.
In conclusion. As yesterday's Military Approved confirmed, 3M22 Zircon is a very low observable system and is not detectable by present detection means, not to speak of West's interception system (air defense) which cannot shoot it down. With the range of 1,500 kilometers and M=9 this version (first) of Zircon is a radical change of paradigm. So, here is you primer for Sunday.
UPDATE: here is one of the Nazis complaining about this whole "situation" with wiping out mercenaries at Yavorov Range.
