William does a good job with his more analytic based videos than most


Why Russia's Ceasefire Proposal to the U.S. Went Nowhere
William Spaniel

Last week, a report indicated that Russia approached the United States at the end of 2023, looking for a ceasefire in Ukraine. That Washington ignored the proposal is not interesting; the United States is not the one fighting the war. What is interesting is how the proposal itself appears to misinterpret where the bargaining power lies and how it has evolved over time. This video goes over the report and breaks down the current negotiating situation.

You can read the report here: ( reuters link - see the youtube link for it )

PAYING MY TRIBUTE TO ALEXEY NAVALNY HAS GOTTEN ME IN TROUBLE Do you know how a rabbit feels sitting in front of a python? I know now. To make a long story short, we the breakfastians went to pay a tribute to Alexey Navalny. We went to lay flowers to a monument in honor of victims of political oppressions here in Tashkent. What’s the big deal, right? Well, wrong! The place was surrounded by the local police and there were three people dressed as civilians only they weren’t civilians. And they weren’t Uzbekistanians judging by their Slavic looks. The police didn’t bother us but them followed us everywhere we went. I filmed our little flower trip today. But now for the first time I’m afraid to make this little 4 minute short video public. Until the safer times. Sorry. This is as much as I can say now. Before all the threats were just possible and virtual. Now I have seen them face to face. It is rabbit-like scary. I paid my dues anyway. Why did I do it? Because I'm not a rabbit. More of Alexay Navalny and how they were killing him slowly is in today’s live stream

Suicide reportedly ... ( there's a lot more to this story it appears .. )



Prominent pro-war blogger and Russian soldier Andrei Morozov has reportedly committed suicide after upsetting his commanders for disclosing high military casualties in Moscow's recent capture of the eastern Ukrainian town of Avdiivka.

..

Morozov wrote last week that 16,000 Russian troops had died in the capture of Avdiivka, which he compared to the deaths of some 7,000 retreating Ukrainian troops. Russian forces stepped up their efforts to capture the eastern industrial hub in October and declared its full seizure over the weekend.

Russia Captures Avdiivka: Why Ukraine Is Struggling and NATO Should Be Worried

On February 17, Russian troops captured Avdiivka, a small city along the eastern frontline. What accounts for Ukraine's ongoing struggles? Although an artillery shortage receives most of the attention, it is only half of the story. This video rewinds to the start of the war to explain why Ukraine initially had success, what changed after the first year of fighting, and what NATO is worried about as the war enters its third year.

Interesting points on logistics and unpacking / reloading times ..

note, Soviet Union had a lot of manpower, so not as much need to reduce man hours compared to the more expensive Nato Nation soldier

CIA Built "12 Secret Spy Bases" In Ukraine & Waged Shadow War For Last Decade, Bombshell NYT Report Confirms
CIA Built "12 Secret Spy Bases" In Ukraine & Waged Shadow War For Last Decade, Bombshell NYT Report Confirms | ZeroHedge


Decade-long secret war against Russia is no longer a "conspiracy theory"...
and how many KGB / FSB and Chinese CCP Spy bases are there ??

Honestly, all the major nations that can afford to setup Spy networks do this ..

Heck, look at Russian Times .. Global Times .. sending out "journalists" ..

personally, I am disappointed the CIA did not make more, I pay them way too much for them to make so few ..

Where was everyone when Victoria Newland testified about 26 installations in Ukraine?
Now we know what 12 of them were. CIA have been in the Ukraine since WW2.

Preston Stewart covers the changing Russia tactics which allow success .. sending in smaller groups of Russian Soldiers and with Ukrainian limits on artillery ammo the UA army is reluctant to use ammo on smaller groups .. thus from each small group a few survive in an advance, and the next small group is sent in .. a few survive from that group .. and so fort until you have a reconstituted small group at the frontline which then advances .. field by field .. small meat wave after small meat wave .. until they overcome the defenders

Trying to keep Ukraine stuff here. Though before long we’ll probably need to make a WW3 thread as the West is determined to get it started

Hello.
Since the totalitarian (or democratic? - they have become very similar) are blocking, and for some reason your favorite Ukrainian bloggers also do not show images of destroyed Abrams tanks, I am posting them here.
