Looks like Kinzhal is a very good weapon, especially against deep underground reinforced positions. As Konashenkov states:
Translation: "On the afternoon of April 11, near the village of Chasov Yar, Donetsk region, the Kinzhal aviation missile system destroyed a buried, well-protected command post of a grouping of Ukrainian troops in the Donbass," he said.
I am sure we will be treated to a video fairly soon. In the meantime, this Austrian dude wanted to make a point in Moscow, but it, obviously, didn't go as planned:
The negotiations were not a “friendly visit” but were rather “very direct, open and hard,” Nehammer told Austrian media after the talks. He signaled that the conversation revolved around the humanitarian aspect of the ongoing hostilities in Ukraine. “This is not a friendly visit. I’ve just come from Ukraine and saw with my own eyes the immeasurable suffering caused by the Russian war of aggression,” Nehammer stated, adding that he had raised alleged “war crimes” blamed on Russian troops during the meeting. The chancellor also revealed that he told Putin that anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the EU would remain in place and could even be reinforced as long as the conflict goes on. “The EU is more united than ever on this issue,” Nehammer stated.
I am sure this guy who served in Austrian military for a couple of years and has a degree in... drum roll... "political communications" is totally ready to communicate with Russians. Nah, I am being facetious, European "elites" are a joke. Just for the heck of it, try to Google "Latvian Mix" (meaning crude oil), see for yourself if you will find anything. I'll give you a hint, these EU imbeciles imposed sanctions on Russia, while the US makes exemptions left and right on Russia's imports to the US, and now they try to bypass their own "sanctions". It is a complete panopticon. A circus, really.
Per military affairs. Mariupol port is fully under LDNR (Russian) forces control, and here is my talking head from yesterday.
Russia's military action in Ukraine is meant to put an end to the US-dominated world order, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has explained. Washington has been seeking supremacy by imposing ad-hoc rules and violating international law, he claimed, in an interview aired by Russian television on Monday. He was referring to America's attempts to impose its own so-called “rules-based international order,” which have met with strong resistance from Moscow and China. “Our special military operation is meant to put an end to the unabashed expansion [of NATO] and the unabashed drive towards full domination by the US and its Western subjects on the world stage,” Lavrov told Rossiya 24 news channel.
Meanwhile, Margo Simonyan should simply abandon RT, because she dropped the ball in a major way by making RT a tribune for globalist creeps like this clown (among many other humanities "educated" Russian Atlanticists), and she should just retire and resign herself to the idea that being a media personality in no way substitutes professional qualities of a serious geopolitical observer and analyst and those are not taught in madras where 90% of RT's "experts" come from. Degree in "journalism" is not a real serious education. But in general it is the time of reckoning of which I write non-stop for years, that "liberal" view of the world, including its meandering "education" is not capable to cope with extremely complex realities of a modern world. Just to demonstrate, how about that:
Правительство запускает федеральный проект по созданию 30 передовых инженерных школ на вузовских площадках в различных регионах страны, сообщил премьер-министр Михаил Мишустин."Молодые специалисты должны перенимать знания и умения по обслуживанию сложных систем у профессионалов высочайшего класса", - заявил он. В течение трех лет на эти задачи в рамках государственной программы "Научно-технологическое развитие" предусмотрены свыше 36 миллиардов рублей.
