What a pleasant surprise to wake up to. Thank you for TF anonymous! Great, now I have responsibilities. I really do need more of that in my life though. At least it's a start.

The NBU recorded the official exchange rate of the hryvnia to the dollar at the level of 36.5686 UAH/USD

SBU reported the suspicion of the "judge of the DNR", who sentenced to death foreign defenders of Ukraine


Investigators of the Security Service prepared a sufficient evidence base and reported the suspicion of the judge of the so-called "appellation chamber of the supreme court of the DPR". It was he who, contrary to the requirements of international law, sentenced to death two British citizens and one citizen of the Kingdom of Morocco, who officially defended the Ukraine in the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

At present, the SBU investigators in absentia informed the pseudo-court of suspicion under Part 2 of Art. 28 and part 1 art. 438 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine (violation of the laws and customs of war committed by a group of persons).

Ukraine aid links

A month and a half into the war (day 44), many of us felt helpless and listless at not being able to do more to help, so here is a list of things that we can do.

There are plenty of charities that could use your help, but even if you don't have spare cash lying about, there are still things you can do so keep reading


You can donate directly to Ukraine if you want to help them make more videos of tanks blowing up. (See 'military aid' below)

There are lots of humanitarian groups working to feed the displaced people and even their pets.  (See 'humanitarian aid')

And even if you're not in a position to give cash, you might be able to find a group that needs some volunteer help or attend a protest.  If you don't have a group in your area specifically helping Ukraine, you can likely still find other worthwhile causes.  And there are groups that have tasks that can be done online or over the phone without even leaving your home. (See 'other notes'). Even just calling politicians to remind them that we need to support Ukrainians.

You can call out dumbasses online who are spreading russian propaganda and otherwise spewing toxic crap.  (Or join groups like NAFO) And by ignoring or blocking the assholes on here who try that shiat.

And you can even support capitalism, and buy stuff made in Ukraine or are fundraisers for the war effort.  (See 'buying stuff')

This is in no way a comprehensive list.  This is just groups that Farkers have mentioned in past threads.  If you want a more comprehensive list, see https://supportukrainenow.org . They also have links to specific groups by country that you're coming from for protests, taking in refugees, etc.  You might also find interesting charities at https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/tgc00n/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/

If you're currently employed by a large-ish company, they may have a donation matching program.  You can check https://doublethedonation.com/but it's also worth contacting your HR to ask even if they're not listed there.

If you would like to avoid doing business with companies still operating in russia, seehttps://www.dontfundwar.com

If you use streaming music services, search for Ukrainian artist playlists, so you'll give them a fraction of a penny and maybe find some new artists to support more directly.

If you watch cam sites, consider supporting Ukrainians (although some may currently be displaced, others may tag Ukraine to show support because they're from neighboring countries, and some of the most in need of support may not currently have internet access; I don't have any sort of definitive list)

There are also efforts to DDoS Russian websites, but I'm not linking to them to avoid risking the mods removing this whole list.

Also see the official Ukrainian website on ways to support their effort:  https://war.ukraine.ua/support-ukraine/

Since it's rather long, I won't paste the entire weekend summary I posted in the last two weekend threads.

For those of you new to the Ukrainian War threads or who are only able to check them occasionally, here's my post summarizing WW3 threads for July 9-July 15. Even shorter TLDR is that HIMARS works well. Ukraine has blown up an awful lot of ammo dumps and officers with the units we sent, and you can see the dramatic reduction in Russian shelling in the NASA fire data.

For thread regulars, if you can tag me on Saturdays with things I missed in the first update, I'll include them in the Sunday ones.

I've also been thinking about the likelihood of Russia using nuclear weapons. It's a confusing topic, and the odds vary wildly based on what you think people value as their primary motivation. I'll write it up later today and see what y'all think.

It is very ugly here.  A new start of rockets firing into UA from Belarus.  Of course I don't know where the target is, but awful.  I don't know how many rockets Russia has but I everytime I think they send everything, more shows up.

Reading on telegram shows many soldiers complain that instead of 200 or 300 soldiers in their group, they only have 25 or 50. No replacements are coming.  So they are losing soldiers due to killed or wounded.  However mostly killed.  If you get shot in UA, there are no soldiers (army doctor) to help you.

One soldier was talking that the artillery (learned new word today) soldiers have no training.  They go for 2 days to learn, and then sent to UA. I don't know if exaggeration.  Soldier said they just shoot artillery and don't hit anything, or hit other Russian soldiers.  I believe it.  The Russian soldiers don't know how to do the math for the artillery.

Every Russian soldier is scared of HIMARS.  Almost if it is magical.  I like it reduces morale of Russian soldier and blows up their ammunition.

UA soldiers have said newly trained soldiers are joining their groups, native Ukrainian.  Trained in UA or UK (?)

Kherson is ready to return to UA control.  Now is time.

Welcome to the Fark Ukraine Thread

This post is for strangers and occasional visitors. We may seem a little prickly around here. There's a reason. Mods clean the trolls out of the thread about once a day. You don't see them but they were there.

what a shill does and why?

By notmyjab

What: We get a fair number of folks wandering in and making unsubstantiated comments like "Ukraine should just give up." "You know Russia is going to win, right?"  No data.  No facts.  Just dumping on the thread.

Why: who knows

Certainly we favor Ukraine in this war.  They've done an unexpected and heroic job defending their homeland from an aggressor looking to wipe them off the map and out of history.  Kyiv existed for almost a thousand years before Moscow, and much of what we in the West think of as Russian culture actually originated with the cossacks that settled in Ukraine via Turkey.

Russia has thrown untrained conscripts to fight, while Ukraine has been getting trained by NATO since 2014.  Ukraine is getting artillery and supplies from the West while Russia is raiding their few remaining friends for bodies to throw at this, while also unable to make anything (most of it came from USSR stock pre-1985, or was made in Ukraine or with imported technology and parts).

So... if someone can make a point and provide data to back it up, then it will be a healthy discussion.  Otherwise, we're here to see the boomies, discuss tactics, artillery, and have some off-topic conversations in between.  I've learned quite a bit about Ukraine's geography, as well as western Europe.  I don't know much about tanks, but have learned from others.  We especially like watching the turret's get airtime when a T-72 takes a direct hit (I think 8 or 9 seconds is the record).  Pros and cons of different rifles and artillery.  I may not be able to remember the details, but it is fascinating to hear from those that do.

It all fits under the category of "interesting sh*t I never thought about before".  Tactics, military organizational structure, supply lines, logistics.  We have people in these threads who have lived this stuff or are true historians.

So... someone who comes in and makes disparaging comments doesn't usually come back.

We have one who is infamous for spewing loads of unfounded information and challenging everyone, then deleting his posts (and their responses).  So we get defensive about time wasters.

Too many Russian generals have to approve nuclear bomb usage.  Plus Russia knows that the wind will blow EAST back to them.  They will kill themselves. When Russian politician says something about nuclear bomb, ignore it.  It is just for attention.  When Russian general says they are going to use nuclear bomb; think it could be possible.  Very different.

Haha, that is something I am going to point out. That and, from what I have read, Russian nuclear doctrine approves of firing first only in defense of the Motherland?

I am not certain about that second point because I do not speak or read Russian and my knowledge comes from reading articles written by other Westerners. It would be better if I could read the primary sources.

In further corrections to official Russian statements:
* The high-tech Russian Krasukha-4 advanced electronic warfare system captured by Ukrainian forces and transported to Ramstein Air Base in Germany was not examined by CIA specialists and found to be filled with live eels.
* Russia's GRU, the Glavnoye Razvedyvatelnoye Upravlenie or Chief Intelligence Office of the Russian military, is filled with bungling and incompetent minions, but they are not as lovable as in the Universal Pictures series of animated comedies.
* Christopher Walken has not signed on to play Razman Kadyrov in a Moscow play based on Peter Pan and set in Chechnya, and at any rate the play was cancelled when the 'little green men' set to play the Lost Boys were exploded by a Bayraktar drone. Memorial services will be held next Thursday.
* Yesterday's episode of the heartwarming children's cartoon Blyaay the Caat, in which drunken can driver Jon and his foulmouthed cat derailed an ammunition train by cursing at it with a foul stream of gutter invective so coarse that it melted the railway tracks and set fire to the ties, was not a signal to The Resistance.
* A quintet of Russian Babushkas cannot yell 'By the power of Grayskull!' and combine to form Voltron, because that would be mixing two different cartoon series and would not be even remotely canon. And even if they did, they'd end up being that shiatty cars and trucks version, not the good Lions one, so that is not allowed even if the American Elon Musk is slowly transforming into a Robeast. No further questions will be allowed on this topic.

Juc: From the cnn link up above

Contrary to rumors surrounding Vladimir Putin's health, the Russian President is "entirely too healthy," according to the head of the CIA.


Ah. I see they are also disappointed to se him still breathing

I particularly would love to see what the rations look like now.

Speaking of, are we sending the Ukrainians MREs to eat or do we still want them to be friends after this is done?


I've heard that Lockheed Martin is working on a new treaty compliant munition for HIMARS that will scatter Vomlet MREs on the target area to incapacitate the defenders.  Also an NGO is trying to prevent this by getting the UN to classify them as Weapons of Ass Destruction.

bertor_vidas: Haha, that is something I am going to point out. That and, from what I have read, Russian nuclear doctrine approves of firing first only in defense of the Motherland?

I am not certain about that second point because I do not speak or read Russian and my knowledge comes from reading articles written by other Westerners. It would be better if I could read the primary sources.


I am thinking in Soviet days, yes true.  Only use nuclear bomb if attacked.  Today, I don't think anyone outside of Russia really knows. And many inside of Russia who should know, may not be sure.

I was only thinking about the steps required to fire a rocket.  Not thinking about plane drop nuclear bomb.

If Russia wanted to fire a nuclear rocket, I think it would take months to get it to launch. Just getting the fuel, and testing the fuel load process, takes a long time. When is last time Russia did successful test?  3 years ago?  USA launches rocket from Alaska to Marshall Islands, don't remember last time they attempted.  Roscosmos only has fuel for Soyuz.  Plus test firing engines on old rockets takes a long time. You can't do a test fire on the rocket on the train.

Plane, possible... but rocket almost impossible.

However too many Generals would say nyet.

This is funny.  Remember how Germany was complaining about bailing out the likes of Portugal, Ireland, etc. a little over a decade ago?

Germany is asking others to pick up the bill and pay for the mess it itself created
- Bruno Maçães (@MacaesBruno) July 11, 2022 Portugal imports zero Russian gas. Why should the costs of German errors be socialized?

Tr0mBoNe: exqqqme: Russia scraps it's largest nuke Sub in the white sea, so maybe this is a feint or maybe they can't afford to float it anymore or ...maybe these are the only reliable missiles in their nuclear arsenal.

Maybe Pepsi could buy it for the price of the scrap metal.

Nah. Just scatter cases of vodak and krokodile and wait for the orcs to destroy themselves.

A major debate erupted on the German internet today after Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock revealed that the government put pressure on CAN to return the Gazprom turbine.
Berlin told Trudeau that Germany would halt its weapon shipments to UKR if it didn't receive the turbine.
