Re: Russia will up the stakes late Friday
It could be just a marathon of confusion to madden the western propagandist so that they are off next week and make bigger mistakes.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82350052



Something along those lines wouldn't surprise me, I fully believe Russia's ability to scare the west is a very useful tool at this time, and the more confusion they can generate the better
 Quoting: Bgpete34


The Russian forces in Ukraine currently face SEVERE logistical problems. THAT needs to be straightened out right away.

Putin may also want to replace commanders who haven't been aggressive enough in the field.

I believe he'll focus on these two things Fri.-Sun.

In addition, he'll want to bomb as much infrastructure as possible before Ukraine can put surface-to-air missiles donated by NATO to use.
 Quoting: TGus



To me nothing makes sense as far as ground reports in Ukraine and its hard to take anything at face value. Russia could easily up the ante at any point I think anyone can agree with that. I never like the idea of calling out miscalculations because because things aren't always what they appear in theaters of war. On the logistics front Russia seems to be suffering problems but I can't get a full handle on their objectives. I warn everyone not to be complacent on the ground situation because if Russia goes scorced earth this will be over in 24 hours.

I have the distinct feeling that some of Putins strategy on this conflict is allow some resistance from Ukraine, maybe so they exhaust some of their resources, maybe to galvanize the Russian public at some point when stories of Russian treatment come out ( I honestly don't know).

Re: Russia will up the stakes late Friday
This is just an opinion but I'm am using some actaul Intel here.

I am absolutely convinced late in the day Friday let's say 6pm EST or later Russia is going to make some type of move. People I have talked to from my work who work in government agencies almost exclusively say Russia will try do something as response to sanctions and just my general observation is there seems to be preparation for some kinda of cyber attack or at least something where comms are affected.

There was alot of talk of Russia implementing some sort at war measures in the country on Friday.

Also, striking when banks and markets are closed reduces some of the economic damage which I'm guessing they would want to do, also might not strain relationships with international private businesses as much as if done during the workweek.

Russia also has a severe disdain for president Biden and him going home for the weekend the first days of the invasion was very noted by the Russian leadership.

There has also been alot of talk of something like this happening and 2 people I know that potentially could be in the know are both going out of town to very remote locations tomorrow ( one upper peninsula of Michigan, the other was going way out west to go snowmobiling.

My feelings are that this will be something Russia can walk back from while still showing their ability to retaliate.
I don't think this we be nuclear war or anything to that extent.

I would just be prepared to have no banking or card services over the weekend and possibly no power or something along those lines.

Would love to hear if anyone else has similar thoughts or information.
 Quoting: Bgpete34


Global attack? European Attack?, or targets in the US?
 Quoting: Resdess


My guess would be European and US, maybe just specific targets at both. My feelings are the US is in the cross hairs for sure.

I think that would be an ideal scenario for them but unless they up the intensity by alotnthat just isn't practical based on what we have seen.

I also believe with western nations supplying arm to Ukraine it really hurts the possible objective of demilitarizing. As long as there are supply routes open it would seem the the Ukraine forces will have an endless supply of munitions which can not make Putin happy.

Re: Russia will up the stakes late Friday
Well they have already:

Stopped oil shipments to the U.S.
Cut off gas supply to Europe
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34166608


Again making some assumptions here but I think we are worried about is Russia wants to make a statement where the effects are immediately visible. 1) to demonstrate capabilities 2) as a warning 3) as a statement that the general population of western nations are not immune to hardship , it will not just be those in Russia and Ukraine that will suffer if the west continues on the path its on.
 Quoting: Bgpete34


I still think Russia will not cut off oil and gas... A change to only accepting rubles for it would temporarily do the same while the countries dependant on it scramble to get rubles and the ruble goes back up.

That is an excellent article and it hard to argue with alot of the points.

I wish alot more people would read that because with the way everything is being portrayed right now we lose sight of the true potential of the Russian military. Although I doubt they could conquer the whole of Europe even with a preemptive EMP like the article suggests, it would take all of Natos assets to match Russia on a European battlefield if this was to become full scale war.

Re: Russia will up the stakes late Friday
This honestly part of it, and I think I mentioned this before but DHS periodically puts out bulletins and I get them via email because we work with FEMA on occasion, well they put one out urging being "conscientious" about fuel as volatility in both supply and market price might temporarily impact retail availability. They added "mostly on a local level"
I think this will send some Shockwave through the fuel supply industry in the short term.

I hope no one but my guess would be if it ever got to that point Russia would beat us to the punch.
I am convinced US, Nato and Russia would have a limited exchange of tactical nuclear weapons with Russia striking first if it ever got to that point. I also believe that use of a single nuke would be scary enough to bring everybody to the table so to speak.

I have been following the whole cyber threat ever since WEF had a drill about it in the middle of December, similar to event 201, before the start of the corona.

My wife asked me in the beginning of the week when do I think it's going to happen if it's this week and I said Friday, so I think we might be onto something. But we might be wrong.

I dont think Russia gives a sh1t about the west setting up a no fly zone, any interference he said will be met!

I can't see that happening, and despite what we see on the news I don't think Putin is as unpopular as everyone would like to believe within Russia.

I am friends with one of my professors from college who is technically a Russian citizen, I talked to him right after the invasion and he strongly supported Putin. This was a very highly educated man that had been living in western society for well over 10 years and subjected to our media and still he has unwavering support for Putin. Not saying he is right or wrong but my point is this was a person who obviously was smart enough to draw his own conclusions and he still supported Putin. I would assume within Russia where there is a media bias and its basically illegal to criticize the government, he would still be highly revered by most. Moreover I sure Russian media is portraying the west as the bad guys in this.

So the whole convoy of russians who ran out of gas on the Road to Kyev is a trap? Russia really doesnt want to see what we have militarily first hand. China would be a tougher enemy. Perhaps we are baiting them and we will false flag ourselves so we can attack Russia full scale and wipe out Chinas biggest ally. Ive never seen DC as empty as its been this week, this morning esp.

Re: Russia will up the stakes late Friday
Our Government over the past 10 years and mostly under obama gave away TOP SECRET info pertaining to our Nuclear facilities .

Shift times for security / The floor plan and security type / Weapons type of security / names of high ranking officers at the facilities .

I just worked for a former D.O.D. worker Dept. Homeland Sec. man .

He was at the New Jersey Plant . He said he resigned after they had a security meeting that informed all the security staff of a breach .

He said Documents discovered in Iraq from a cache the Marines raided had papers and legit floor plans of the Nuclear plant he worked at .

These documents were from the State Dept . how they were in Iraq is a mystery . Obviously A traitor provided them .


Any way it had all the security time/ changes/ man power / Door codes access / Commander info and even civilian engineer info .


He said he quit the following week .


This was 8 years ago I think .


The fact is that we have agents in our Gov. that intentionally have passed on this vital internal info to our enemies for Sabotage purposes.


America will be targeted soon and MSM will run with it !

Yes they will blame Russia .
