napoleon zelensky faces another waterloo….

Russian forces have taken out hundreds of Ukrainian troops and dozens of tanks and armored military vehicles after repelling an ill-fated offensive in the south of the country, the Defense Ministry claimed on Tuesday.

A statement added that officials believe the failed operation was mounted at the personal order of President "Vladimir" [Volodymyr] Zelensky.

“The effective actions by the Russian forces destroyed 48 tanks, 46 infantry fighting vehicles, 37 other armored combat vehicles, eight pickups with heavy machine guns and more than 1,200 Ukrainian servicemen in one day,” they outlined. The Ministry added that Kiev sustained these losses during a botched offensive whose directions led to Nikolaev, Krivoy Rog, and other cities in southern Ukraine.

The ministry went on to say that Moscow’s forces routed the units of the 128th Ukrainian Mountain Assault Brigade, which had been redeployed from western Ukraine to take part in the operation. “Five service members from this brigade laid down their arms and gave in,” the ministry added.

Russian forces also wiped out “more than 200 militants, including about 40 foreign mercenaries” as well as more than 20 armor units, according to the military. 

The Russian Defense Ministry’s statement comes after its claim on Monday that the Ukrainian counteroffensive in Kherson had “failed miserably.” At the time, the ministry put Kiev’s losses at 26 tanks, 23 armored fighting vehicles, nine more armored vehicles, two jets and at least 560 troops. 

Kiev has been talking about a “Kherson counteroffensive”all summer, while soliciting more weapons and ammunition from its Western backers. In a video address to the people on Sunday, Zelensky vowed that “Ukraine will return” to Donbass – as well as Kharkov, Zaporozhye, Kherson, and “definitely to Crimea.”

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. The protocols, brokered by Germany and France, were first signed in 2014. Former Ukrainian president Pyotr Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and “create powerful armed forces.”

Carlyle's corpus spans the genres of history, the critical essay, social commentary, biography, fiction, and poetry. His innovative writing style, known as Carlylese, greatly influenced Victorian literature and anticipated techniques of postmodern literature. While not adhering to any formal religion, he asserted the importance of belief and developed his own philosophy of religion. He preached "Natural Supernaturalism", the idea that all things are "Clothes" which at once reveal and conceal the divine, that "a mystic bond of brotherhood makes all men one", and that duty, work and silence are essential. He postulated the Great Man theory, a philosophy of history which contends that history is shaped by exceptional individuals.

Carlyle occupied a central position in Victorian culture, being considered not only, in the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, the "undoubted head of English letters", but a secular prophet. Posthumously, his reputation suffered as publications by his friend and disciple James Anthony Froude provoked controversy about Carlyle's personal life, particularly his marriage to Jane Welsh Carlyle. His reputation further declined in the 20th century, as the onsets of World War I and World War II brought forth accusations that he was a progenitor of both Prussianism and fascism. Since the 1950s, extensive scholarship in the field of Carlyle Studies has improved his standing, and he is now recognized as "one of the enduring monuments of our literature who, quite simply, cannot be spared."

The 79th Venice Film Festival, the oldest film festival, opened on Wednesday evening with Catherine Deneuve as guest of honour and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky as a surprise guest. In a video message, Volodymyr Zelensky called on the world of cinema "not to forget" a war that "has not lasted 120 minutes but for 189 days". At the end of his speech, the haunting list of first names of all the children and adolescents (up to 18 years old) killed in the conflict, accompanied by their date and place of birth, paraded on a black background.

 

Of course Zelensky’s parade did not mention some of the kids were killed by his troops in Donbass. Zelensky is a lousy actor — famous for mocking NAPOLEON — a voicing puppet of the US/NATO/EU/UK conglomerate theatrical troops designed to destroy Russia and China.

 

The French newspaper Le Monde also mentions that:

 

 

Russian military suffers from 'serious manpower shortages', US intelligence says

 

Russia is short on troops in its six-month war against Ukraine, according to a US intelligence analysis released on Wednesday. The Russian military suffers from “serious manpower shortages,” the memo says, and its efforts to find new troops to send to the front are increasingly desperate.

 

To remedy this situation, Moscow plans to force soldiers injured earlier in the war to return to combat, recruit personnel from private security companies and may even send prisoners to fight in Ukraine, according to a US official who spoke to the AP agency on condition of anonymity. According to him, the next step is to offer detainees to enlist in Ukraine "in exchange for pardons and financial compensation".

 

Russian President Vladimir Putin last week ordered the Russian military to increase its troop numbers by 137,000 to a total of 1.15 million. Putin's decree, which will take effect on January 1, does not specify whether the army will strengthen its ranks by recruiting more conscripts, increasing the number of volunteer soldiers or a combination of the two. But some Russian military analysts predict the military will rely instead on volunteers, a cautious stance that reflects Kremlin concerns about the political risks of expanding conscription.

 

The presidential decree aims to increase the overall strength of the Russian army to 2,039,758 people, including 1,150,628 soldiers. A previous decree set army strength at 1,902,758 and 1,013,628, respectively, as of early 2018...
