The impressive footage comes as more clips emerge of Russian soldiers and military kit being decimated by Ukraine in the battlefield. MORE...
    Ukraine today showed a video claiming to be a military drone hit on a Russian landing ship supplying a TOR anti-aircraft missile system to Snake Island. The footage appears to show the destruction of a large Serna-type landing craft in an air strike. 'Enemy units remaining on Snake Island remain without air cover and will be destroyed and burned out like cockroaches or locusts,' said Ukrainian official Anton Gerashchenko. Other reports said the landing craft had been hit by a hit by a Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 military drone. Black and white footage showed little human figures moving around on the landing ship moments before a white flash engulfs the craft. Figures continue to move around on the craft after it is hit. The footage also showed an attack on a building on Snake Island. What appear to be Russian personnel are seen patrolling around the building when it too is blasted from the sky.

    As an investigative journalist, activist and former MP, she is already known to be a fearsome figure in Ukraine. But Tetiana Chornovol looked even more formidable yesterday as she took on her new role – fighting off Russian invaders with anti-tank weapons. She was seen in full military uniform examining footage of a tank that she had struck while defending Kyiv. Miss Chornovol, 42, is one of many high-profile members of Ukraine’s territorial defence service who have paused their day jobs to take up arms.  The former member of the Ukrainian Parliament, service member and operator of an anti-tank guided missile weapon system, carries an anti-tank missile at a position on the front line Miss Chornovol repositions the weapons mid Russia's invasion of Ukraine in the Kyiv region  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 2 Next 'This woman is my hero': Praise floods in for 79-year-old...

    Bill Roggio is a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and editor of FDD's Long war Journal. From 1991 to 1997, Roggio served as a signalman and infantryman in the U.S. Army and New Jersey National Guard  Wishful thinking has the upper hand in the battle to shape Western perceptions of the war in Ukraine. Sympathy for the outnumbered and outgunned defenders of Kyiv has led to the exaggeration of Russian setbacks, misunderstanding of Russian strategy, and even baseless claims from amateur psychoanalysts that Putin has lost his mind. A more sober analysis shows that Russia may have sought a knockout blow, but always had well-laid plans for follow-on assaults if its initial moves proved insufficient. The world has underestimated Putin before and those mistakes have led, in part, to this tragedy in Ukraine. We must be clear-eyed now that the war is underway. Yet even the professionals at the Pentagon are letting sympathy cloud their judgement. Just two days into Russia's invasion of Ukraine, U.S. Department of Defense briefers were quick to claim that failing to take...
    There is only really one rule of warfare, and that is to get there first with the most troops. Everything else is detail. And that is exactly what Putin has done in Ukraine. In the wee small hours of this morning the Russian military, aided by the forces of its client state Belarus, started their assault in the Donbas region. In a Russian version of the USA's infamous 'shock and awe' tactics of conflicts past, it began with an attack on Ukrainian air defence and communications systems, designed to incapacitate and disrupt and grant a free hand to the Russian airforce. It's exactly the same way the Gulf War started in 1991. I know, I was there. What are Russian tactics likely to be now that battle has essentially been joined? They have long espoused the doctrine of what they call Deep Battle, which is basically a scaled-up version of the German blitzkrieg. In practice, following on from the establishment of air superiority – or at least air parity – and after crushing artillery bombardment, strong armoured columns crash through...
    FROM the Battles of Waterloo, Trafalgar and the Somme to quashing the Nazis, the British Army has pretty much seen, done and conquered it all. But there’s a creeping enemy force that even they seemingly can’t overcome . . . Generation Z. 1Corporal Kimberley Hey was demoted last week after telling two teenage soldiers 'You're mine now, bitches'Credit: Solent Last week Corporal Kimberley Hey, a female instructor responsible for training young recruits, was demoted after telling two teenage soldiers: “You’re mine now, bitches.” Following a court martial, the 34-year-old amateur boxer was also found guilty of hitting a 16-year-old recruit in the stomach on his first day of training after he answered a question incorrectly. She claimed the punching was just “banter”. Not so much a thwack, more a “mutual flicking”. For his part, Craftsman Joseph Wiggin told the court: “There was no malice behind it — it was more of a sort of bonding thing.” The judge, who accepted the punches were at a “low level”, nevertheless demoted her to Lance Corporal — and Cpl Hey’s Army career, one suspects, is now in...
    Paula Knauss, mother of fallen Army Staff Sgt. Ryan Knauss, is pointing fingers at the Biden administration for the death of her son during America’s messy withdrawal from Afghanistan. The grieving mother stressed holding who’s at fault accountable on "The Ingraham Angle" Tuesday, starting with President Biden for trusting the enemy instead of putting the best interest of U.S. troops, Afghan allies and all Americans first. "The president of the United States has the ability to help our troops, have enough men and women to stay safe," she said. "In all of our history, in all of the time that we have been fighting, where did you leave these men and women but at one airport, one location, one gate to funnel thousands through? And who did you trust? You trusted our enemy to allow who would come through." NIKKI HALEY: BIDEN HAS LOST ‘TRUST AND CONFIDENCE OF US MILITARY, GLOBAL ALLIES "What does anyone in this great nation think when they think what would happen? No one has to have a military background to know that that was not...
    After claiming to be “personally” offended over accusations the drag queen-loving U.S. military is woke, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Mark Milley said, “I want to understand white rage, and I’m white.” Oh, okay, because that’s not woke at all. This happened during congressional testimony on Wednesday. Then he added this bone-chilling explanation: “What is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America?” The implication being it was “white rage.” Okay, just for starters, only an idiot would see skin color as a factor in the January 6 protest in and around the U.S. Capitol (which was mostly peaceful, per the corporate media’s own definition) January 6 protest in and around the U.S. Capitol, but here’s a question that should put a chill up everyone’s spine… Why is the U.S. military brainwashing our troops with the openly racist ideas behind Critical Race Theory that push the wild and wicked claim people with white skin are inherently evil and racist oppressors? I’ll tell you what...
    UKRAINE has entered the NATO military alliance against arch-enemy Putin after Joe Biden promised to defend its new ally against Russia. President Volodymyr Zelensky said he welcomed a statement confirming his country's entry into the alliance. 5Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he wanted a 'yes' or 'no' from Joe BidenCredit: AFP 5In April, Vladimir Putin sent troops near UkraineCredit: Reuters His administration had urged NATO to speed up Ukraine's entry through a Membership Action Plan. Earlier today, he told Reuters that he wanted a clear "yes" or "no" from US President Joe Biden on giving Ukraine such a plan. Mr Zelensky also said that Joe Biden should have met him before the US president's first summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin as they could resolve nothing on Ukraine without Kiev's involvement. Zelensky spoke as the US and Russian leaders prepare to meet in Geneva on Wednesday. Earlier this month, Joe Biden reaffirmed US support for Ukraine's territorial integrity and invited Zelensky to the White House in July. Zelensky, 43, said: "It would be better to have this meeting before the...
    RAF Typhoons are braced to patrol the Black Sea amid fears President Putin is preparing to invade Ukraine. Top Guns expect to go toe-to-toe with Russian MIGs and Sukhoi jets as tensions reach boiling point. 9RAF Typhoons are to patrol the Black Sea amid fears Russia could invade UkraineCredit: � UK MoD Crown Copyright 2018. This image may be used for current news purposes only. It 9 The Typhoon FGR4s, armed with Paveway bombs and Brimstone missiles, will be part of a Nato “air policing mission”. The fighter jets will be backed by US and UK spy planes and electronic warfare teams to jam enemy radars and missile tracking systems. "It could hardly be more fraught," a source said. "This is a long-planned Nato mission that coincides a crisis that could erupt at any time."  Meanwhile, Moscow has reportedly dubbed the US its “adversary” as up to 85,000 Russian troops, plus thousands of tanks, missile trucks, armoured vehicles and long-range guns have...
    As the deadline for troop withdrawal in Afghanistan nears, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., said that 'we need to do our jobs in the Senate and the House in order to provide transparency for the American people on why and how long troops are in the Middle East. DEFENSE SECRETARY MAKES FIRST AFGHANISTAN TRIP AS QUESTIONS SWIRL AHEAD OF TRUMP-NEGOTIATED MAY 1 DEADLINE TAMMY DUCKWORTH: Well, I don’t believe in artificial timelines. I want our troops to come home, absolutely. But, I want them to come home in a way that we don’t have to send them back three months later, six months later. And so, as a soldier, you never tell your enemy, 'hey by the way we’re leaving next week on Tuesday at 3 pm.' You don’t do that. You don’t tell your enemy what your actions are going to be that’s just common sense. What I would like to see is a repeal and re-debate of the AUMF, which are the guidelines for the authorization of use of military force for why our troops are there and...
    (CNN)The military is still the most respected institution in America, but this respect is not a given. The politicizing of the military under the Trump administration and the growth of right-wing extremism among veterans are serious threats to that national admiration. Paul Rieckhoff Amy McGrathVeterans made up as much as 20% of the people arrested so far in relation to the violent insurrection at the Capitol on January 6, according to an NPR count. This is a much higher percentage than the 7% of veterans in the population as a whole. Additionally, most of them served since 9/11. These domestic terrorists who attacked our democracy included men and women, officers and enlisted, spanning almost all of the service branches. As a nation, we must face the hard fact that there may be a systemic problem here, the nature and depth of which is yet to be determined.The threat is urgent, but it's not new. There were signs of right-wing extremism in the military as far back as 2009. These real warnings were politicized and little was done. For the...
    The US Marine Corps wants to equip troops with deadly swarming drones that could bring a sci-fi element to the battlefield, according to a report on Wednesday. The drones — commonly known as suicide or kamikaze drones — would be able to travel up to 12 miles, hover over a battlefield to hunt for targets and then attack, DefenseNews reported. “The swarming idea would be ‘How do I overwhelm the enemy’s defenses and cut off lines of escape,’” Bryan Clark, a retired submarine officer and senior fellow at The Hudson Institute told the outlet. “The idea here is to cause an area effect,” Clark said. “You want to overwhelm defenses or cause explosions over a wider area to try and herd your adversary or cut off lines of retreat.” The force is looking at having small troops of Marines carry the killing robots to deploy over massive battlefields, according to the report. The swarming capability makes the AI-powered bots even more lethal, since it means they can communicate to maximize the effectiveness of a strike. “You might create a...

    There’s a new set of patch notes out today for Crusader Kings 3, the extraordinary strategy role-playing game from Paradox Interactive. The 1.1 patch goes live on Tuesday, and with more than 15,000 words of explanation — roughly 34 single-spaced pages — it’s a doozy. There are literally hundreds of fixes large and small on the way, including a very timely update for anyone interested in witchcraft. When Crusader Kings 3 launched on Sept. 1, players were delighted that their characters could indulge in witchcraft. More importantly, players could even grow a coven of witches by converting other characters in close proximity. But a bug prevented players from holding a Grand Rite — a magical event that would preternaturally boost their skills, giving them super-human abilities. The only way to activate a Grand Rite, in fact, was to use the game’s debug mode, effectively cheating. It’s finally fixed in Tuesday’s patch. If you’re an avid Crusader Kings 3 player, there’s a lot to digest. Perhaps the biggest change is in how the game’s artificial intelligence will behave during combat. Going...
    President Trump on Friday awarded the Medal of Honor to Military Sgt. Maj. Thomas Payne for his position in liberating 75 Islamic State hostages in Iraq. The October 2015 operation close to Kirkuk freed 38 hostages from one constructing held by the fear group, then Payne braved ISIS gunfire to free one other 37 in a second constructing. “Sergeant Payne climbed a ladder to the constructing’s roof, which was now partially engulfed in flames, and engaged the enemy fighters beneath with grenades and small arms hearth. He then moved to floor stage, partaking enemy forces by a breach gap within the west aspect of the constructing,” a White Home launch stated. “Understanding time was operating out for the hostages trapped contained in the burning constructing, Sergeant Payne moved to the constructing’s principal entrance, from which heavy enemy hearth had thwarted earlier makes an attempt to enter.” Payne then “reentered the constructing to make the ultimate lock cuts, liberating 37 hostages [and] facilitated the evacuation of the hostages regardless of being ordered to evacuate the collapsing constructing himself, which was...
