@WarintheFuture @shashj We need the governments of NATO countries to start recognising the seriousness of this conflict. Russia is far from a spent force. Victory for Ukraine is by no means certain. And should Russia withdraw from Ukraine, it will continue to be a problem - even if Putin goes.

Speaking in New York, General Mark Milley, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, estimates that Russia has sustained 100,000 soldiers killed or wounded in Ukraine.

CV90 with CRT band tracks. It's been around for a while now, but the Scandinavian armies that use it love it. I would love to see this in Ukraine.

Today鈥檚 thread. What Putin hopes to accomplish by invading Ukraine.

All of you who like to criticise the UK MoD, here鈥檚 something they got 100% right. Mastiff. It saved British lives in Afghanistan. Now it鈥檚 saving Ukrainian lives in Ukraine.

Really happy that KMW鈥檚 Dingo 2 MRAP is being donated to Ukraine. Using the Mercedes-Benz Unimog chassis, it combines excellent protection with class-leading off-road performance.

M270A2 G/ MLRS. The British Army will upgrade all of its launcher vehicles as well as acquiring new ones to compensate for the units gifted to Ukraine. The new standard incorporates the new PrSM long-range missile. Probably the most important capability in our land arsenal.

Putin鈥檚 rhetoric last week was an attempt to widen the scope of the war by positioning it as a struggle against the USA/ NATO as well as Ukraine. This narrative may be used to justify further escalation. Overall, Putin鈥檚 threats show he is running out of options and time. 4 of 6

In the absence of fresh information, I鈥檝e been trying to analyse what鈥檚 going on in Ukraine. The top line consensus is that both sides have stalled, with Ukraine making marginal gains and Russia pouring-in untrained and unwilling conscripts merely to hold the line. 1 of 6

An impressive list of materiel provided to Ukraine by Germany. Is Germany鈥檚 post-unification pacifism giving way to a new national psyche? The signs are here.
