Highlights from the Ukraine Front

Spread the Word
  1. A military medic distributed amphetamine to Ukrainian soldiers before the battle, explaining this by the need to make them “combat-ready,” a prisoner of war told RIA Novosti.

German army in WW2 was massively fed up with Pervitin, a methamphetamine type of drug that enhanced the endurance of soldiers, removing fear from them and increasing concentration.

Captagon was/is massively used in recent conflicts (Syria) with the same effects. Cases of fighters losing their arm and continuing to fight were documented (until incapacitated due to blood loss) same as direct hits from small arms fire over the chest or stomach. They still continue to walk/run until mowed down by another burst or, yet again, due to blood loss.

2. From today, the embargo on oil products from Russia comes into force. From day to day, the rise in price of gasoline and diesel fuel at European gas stations will begin. The Times magazine writes that the consequences of the restrictions will be more than felt by the entire European business.

“Since the start of the special operation in Ukraine, the price of diesel fuel has jumped sharply (over the year, prices at gas stations rose from 1.66 euros per liter to 2.14 euros per liter), and the growth may continue. And since almost everything people buy is transported by diesel trucks, the rise in the price of this energy carrier fuels inflation.”

3. Ukrainian power grid is approaching total collapse

Ukrainians are already accustomed to rolling blackouts, but there is clearly not enough electricity in Ukraine. The national electricity grid is approaching complete collapse, which means that the country will become completely uninhabitable, writes Foreign Affairs.

Deaths from the collapse of the power grid could be much more than the losses from Russian tactical nuclear weapons. The collapse of the Ukrainian electricity grid could also cause a humanitarian and migration crisis in Europe, the destruction of nuclear reactors, floods due to burst hydroelectric dams, and a severe food crisis in those countries dependent on food exports from Ukraine.

4. In Ukraine, the age for military registration has been lowered by a year—to 16 years

Now 16-year-old boys will be recruited by the Ukrainian armed forces. Although the Ukrainian authorities claim that this is being done to optimize the military registration system, there is no doubt in Ukraine that the Kiev regime intends to send Ukrainian teenagers into the Donbass meat grinder. However, Russian soldiers are already reporting that 17-year-old fighters have been killed and captured. The Third Reich cosplay continues.

5. A soldier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lives on the front line in Bakhmut for about 4 hours, Kyiv sends the mobilized to the slaughter. This was stated by a Kyiv journalist after a conversation with the soldiers of the Ukrainian military. She clarified that we are talking about untrained fighters and thus confirmed that mobilized Ukrainians are being massively thrown to the slaughter.

6. A problem of logistics: is the US sending Ukraine the wrong tank? — The Financial Times

Abrams battle tanks, which the United States promised to transfer to Ukraine, require significant logistical support, the Financial Times reports, citing experts.

The intense maintenance and logistics needed to keep the Abrams battle-ready make it less ideal for foreign armies such as Ukraine’s, which simply needs weapons that work well. But it is also a symptom of an American defense procurement system that, critics argue, repeatedly overcomplicates its big military platforms, loading them up with pet technologies that drive up costs and make them difficult to maintain.
