Sitrep Operation Z: How Goes The WarMon 12:27 pm Europe/London, 11 Jul 2022 1

A few notes:
Zakharova: Russia has completed preparations for retaliatory measures against Lithuania and the EU in response to the blockade of Kaliningrad and will apply them in the coming days.
It’s good to report that the EU now recognizes that they’ve lost the battle of the narrative. https://www.rt.com/news/558748-borrell-g20-russia-sanctions/
NordStream 1 is now offline for annual maintenance until July 21st. Will Russia turn it back on?
Comment from Martyanov: I also want to stress, again, that bar some obvious high-end involvement by Russian combat aviation, stand-off weapons, obvious state-of-the-art ISR and artillery, it is clear that by now the bulk of fighting on the ground is performed by LDNR forces and Russia’s National Guard (Rosgvardiya) and main forces, are being held in reserved and are used very sparingly. So, I guess Ukie 1 million-strong army is about to get acquainted with all the firepower of Russian Army, wink, wink.
The Russian hacker group RaHDIt and the Ukrainian “Beregini” were able to obtain secret operational documents about the actions of the Ukrainian army and the real situation at the front. The hackers also managed to establish channels for receiving “from the Armed Forces of Ukraine” up-to-date information on the operational situation in the combat zone of the situation at the front. According to hackers, American intelligence supplies Kiev with radar data, as well as satellite images, including the territory of Russia, which is then subjected to rocket and artillery attacks on civilians, a member of the RaHDIt hacker group told RIA Novosti.

This Military Summary report at end of day yesterday is interesting and talks of battles that we did not even know was happening. (Also on Rumble for those who prefer that: https://rumble.com/v1bs479-ukraine.-military-summary-and-analysis-10.07.2022.html )
Kindly use as open thread and hammer the UkroNazis with up to date and clear information as the Sakerites usually do!
Ukraine is making intelligent (except for that fact that the war is simply their own destruction) strategic changes according to Military Summary on youtube.
1. Drafting 200,000 women to fight.
2. Using forests to hide forces, counter-attacking after allowing Russians to advance and go past first.
3. Making use of the HIMARS to destroy Russian weapons stores.
4. Putting mobile mechanised reserves into battle areas giving more flexibility of response.
The problem is that Ukraine will destroy all its reserves in Donbas in all probability when they could be held in check and used to make a more effective defensive line beyond the Dnieper River, which could not be attacked in all probability until Spring 2023.
The hiding of troops inside forests only works when the Russians don’t use infra red detectors to locate the forces, which they can do using helicopters. Once these are deployed, the troops can be located and destroyed.
The HIMARS can be found fairly quickly as Russian intelligence networks reach all over the region. The HIMARS operate as effectively as Russian missile systems, although they are far fewer in number. The supply of NATO weaponry is prolonging the agony but no more than that. NATO-supplied artillery is being used to shell civilians in Donietsk, causing many casualties. By causing grievous civilian casualties, NATO hopes to provoke similar evil from the Russians so worldwide media can be used to justify full mobilisation against Russia more openly and urgently.
The NATO plan is to hold Russia in check while 300,000 US ground forces are deployed into Ukraine along with 200,000 troops from other countries.
Russia is sufficiently effective at attritional warfare based on artillery and battlefield intelligence that Ukrainian reserves could be decimated before the 500,000 NATO force can arrive in theatre, or the 200,000 women are trained.
As regards the use of British artillery to fire on civilians in Donietsk, only the English Democrats stand to stop supplying weapons and money to Ukraine. Support them please. See English Democrats Shropshire on facebook, which I am running with a small group. Follow and Like please.
As for anyone supporting any other party, you should be ashamed that you are supporting the deliberate killing of hundreds of children over many years. If you didn’t know before…….you know now.
