They're a stealth invasion force. Settle in nearby countries, build communities with strong cultural ties to Mother Russia, and in a few years you have a whole new set of territories to liberate from their oppressors (after holding a referendum of course; you have to do these things by the book).

The war is effectively over and Russia has very clearly lost...but if Vlad wants to get more of his military killed we can play it out for a few more turns.

Russia just needs to release an inspiring hardbass song to motivate the young men to enlist and die for Putin.

You mean telling the soldiers that getting their first aid kits out of their cars and stuff tampons up their nose if they bleed isn't a selling point?

It is an orc trap.  To get their orcs behind the front lines.  They aren't fleeing.  They are infiltrating.

Vladimir Putin is widely speculated to be dying of cancer. His annexation and conquering of Ukraine was supposed to be his magnum opus, the thing that the resurrected Russian empire was supposed to have him in textbooks and statues for.

I firmly believe that if it's true, and he is dying, his ego is so great that he will destroy the world around him so that he doesn't die alone. I think in the end we're going to see a regional nuclear exchange in Ukraine. I think that will be his final act on this earth. If he can't have it, he'll salt the land after burning it.

They haven't mobilized since that last time KFC had a sale.

And even then, they only got about three steps before collapsing and ordering doordash

Great idea! No one should be allowed to have an opinion that differs. It's almost like these eeyores expect liberals/progressives to not act like conservatives where they shiat all over anyone who doesn't walk lock step with the opinion they hold. Keep the Dems/liberals/progressives clean. More purity tests for people we don't agree with!

Also, considering the performance of other Russian front-line "equipment", I wouldn't trust a post-soviet tampon to absorb anything more than a condescending look.

Putin's remaining option is a limited nuclear strike in Ukraine.
Already stated, this will draw in US/NATO which would give Putin reason to withdraw.
Putin sells loss in Russia as "war with western aggressors that he has ended."
Rather than getting ass-kicked by Ukraine.

He makes a speech tomorrow BTW.
Stay tuned.

Putin has a thing for creating refugees who then flood the West and cause a whole other problem that shifts Public opinion.
Interestingly, Martha's Vineyard Venezuelans are getting caught up in US politics. Seems like the Venezualian Gov could be moving discontents out with incentives to go to America, much like DeSantis is doing. It's Global human trafficking

Gutted his army to pay off cronies followed by using it to invade a country. It is farking brilliant.

I certainly did not see it coming. I mean I expect some skimming, but damn I expect that something to go to the troops if one actually wanted to annex territory by force.

Yeah because a constant reflexive intoning of "ain't nothin' goin' happen" is so very valuable.

*Finally looks up the term after 31 years on this earth*

Huh. Salting the earth was actually done by the survivors to try to consecrate the ground and to curse anyone who would dare disturb the monument where so many died.
