    OMFG.


    We returned armoured vehicles from so-called EC peacekeepers to LDNR armed forces.

    They should probably repaint those stolen vehicles if they don't want people thinking they might be used for propaganda purposes.

    How many bradleys do the police officers have?

    hey if it's the end of the world then a brad is a decent choice, especially for a assault. Not the end fo the world and police still doing police shit then they may have an issue with stealing gas.

    You are pure and clear enemies. "Partners" now is an ironic figure of speech.

    That's the thing. The rest of the world does not want to see Russians as the enemy. It is Russians themselves who justify their reprehensible behavior by accusing the rest of the world as being almost as bad as them. People like you give Putin the power to continue the imperialist fantasy that is harming the rest of the world and leading down a path of destruction for the Russian people. What is going on now is a feeble rebound of the USSR that is likely to lead to the final collapse of Russia as we have known it. You are your own worst enemy but lack the mental capacity to see it. Just like you lack the capacity to see how much harm your raging alcoholism has caused your own family.

    If you pull up to a gas station in a Bradley, who's going to stop you from getting some "free" gas?

    There are people who might have something to say about stealing gas. We call them police officers.

    Hope this country dont fuck itself giving away all its weapons

    The greater majority of what we gave away is end of life stuff so we are no where near giving away all our weapons. For example, we have around 2800 brads retired from service with about 2500 still being used. Brads are going to be replaced by a more modern platform so all of them will be retired once that eventually happens. We just gave the Ukes 50 of them so now they don't have to sit in long term reserves with no plausible use. That saves the tax payer the costs of maintaining them every year and having to pay to have them scrapped at some point. Also of note, the new contract pricing of those 50 brads is what is stated as the cost of what was lend leased. The purchase of those machines is a sunk cost paid for when they were ordered 15 - 45 years ago. The actual taxpayer costs are the difference between continuing to maintain and eventually dispose of them vs the cost of shipping them in theater. In some cases that may actually be a net benefit.


    In the case of the 113's , there are around 10k of them in storage since the last were retired from service years ago. We pay every year to maintain them and to have them scrapped or thrown in the ocean as reefs. There might be some international sales of a few of them but pretty much all of them are an ongoing cost to taxpayers. We may as well donate a bunch of them as the Ukes need battle taxis etc.

    We have around 2800 Brads in reserve storage and Brads overall are slated for eventual retirement. I'm fine with giving the Ukes a bunch instead of us paying to maintain and eventually dispose of them. I also read we still have around 10k 113's still left after being retired well over a decade ago. We have been dumping them overboard for reefs. It would be cheaper to donate many of those as well.

    Russia brought vehicles with OSCE markings to occupied Donbas, @OSCE denies its presence in the area

    The vehicles may be used for provocations, media suggests. OSCE's Special Monitoring Mission used such vehicles in Ukraine from 2014 through early 2022.https://t.co/Avgy1Am0Sr https://t.co/e2XMpZvemw pic.twitter.com/vfBp4h6MPM

    The OSCE has officially stated that their observers are not currently in the Donbas. A few days ago, there were cars with OSCE markings, and there were suspicions that the markings were applied by Russia and the cars were going to be fired at in order to blame Ukraine for this.
