@aggualaqisaaq Good read, but the short answer is no. Putin hasn’t even gotten to the point yet of admitting that what’s happening in Ukraine is a war.

This says a lot about the state of the Russian media landscape. The press secretary of the Russian defense ministry has resigned, and this is a quote from the TASS article about it:
""I will be assuming new duties. Almost 7 years in the Defense Ministry have flown by like a MiG-31. I will remember this time with pride", - she wrote on Instagram (which belongs to the recognized extremist company Meta and is illegal in Russia)"

The parenthesis is part of the quote.

@hanse_mina They do have more surface Kalibr carriers, but they are based in Novorossiysk. I think that’s how that statement is supposed to be interpreted.

No country should buy Swiss weapons before they change this policy. The ability to transfer weapons to each other in times of need has proven to be a strategic requirement.

Much of the analysis of the reshuffle in the Russian government seems to be missing how much it is about coup-proofing Putin's regime rather than making smart decisions for Russia.

This is a snippet from the latest Logic of War newsletter (paid).

🎥 Aqua has a trick I haven't seen anyone else do as well

This isn't something I'd personally pay a monthly fee for, but I'd love to see this built into something like Apple Notes 🤞

@matt I bought a whole Windows PC to be able to run Dragon Professional for dictation, so this perhaps could be for me. 🤔

Yesterday, Russia lost 1740 soldiers.

Putin will lose this war.

Russia has intensified the nuclear rhetoric, but that does not mean that we are close to nuclear war. In this video I discuss why is unlikely to use nuclear weapons in . The short version is that it would make the situation even worse for Russia itself, and that it wouldn't lead to victory.

Transcript is included in the link for those who prefer to read rather than watching the video.

It is unusually cold and snowing in Moscow today for the big victory parade. Wonder if there is symbology in that. 🤔

Smartphones play an important role in modern warfare. In this video I have a conversation with Matthew Ford from the Swedish Defence University about the ways that soldiers use smartphones on the battlefield, and how we are seeing a new level of participatory warfare where civilians can be personally involved in the war fighting through their digital devices.

🇷🇺 🇫🇷 warned on Wednesday that if President Emmanuel Macron sent troops to then they would be seen as legitimate targets by the Russian military.

@SuneAuken @rvps2001 Technically speaking there is a distinction here between jus ad bellum and jus in bello. Even if the war as a whole is illegal, they still have to follow the rules of war in how they do it.
The stupid thing is of course that if French soldiers are fighting on the battlefield, then obviously they are legitimate targets. That is what it means to be a combatant.

@SuneAuken @rvps2001 Exactly. 🙂

"Kronik
Vi var ved protesten på Columbia Universitet og kan ikke genkende pressens udlægning
Vi har befundet os i og omkring forsamlingen af telte, som politiet blev sat ind for at fjerne. Det var en fredelig protest, der skabte samhørighed og læring, og hvis krav blev mødt med vold"

@jeppe Forstyrrede de undervisningen og den daglige drift af universitetet, eller kunne de ansatte og studerende som ikke var med i den politiske protest fortsætte som normalt?

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@jeppe Måske en kortvarig blokade, men hvis det står på i ugevis, må der også være et hensyn til at andre mennesker skal have lov til at passe deres arbejde eller studier.

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@jeppe Jeg ved ikke om det er let. Men jeg synes som minimum at demonstranter som laver sådan en blokade skal være opmærksomme på at det er en aggressiv handling. Om aggressionen er berettiget, kan man så diskutere, men man skal ikke bilde sig selv ind at "vi var helt fredelige".

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@jeppe Det som universiterne gør, kan ikke sammenlignes med at udføre krigsforbrydelser. Man kan diskutere om vi skal droppe samhandel og akademisk samarbejde med Israel, men proportionerne skal være på plads.

@paelse @jeppe Google fik også politiet til at fjerne de medarbejdere, som valgte at besætte chefens kontor.

@jeppe @paelse Politiet i USA er massivt underuddannet. Jeg frygter desværre at vi går i samme retning i Danmark med den forkortelse af politiuddannelsen som blev gennemført for et par år siden.

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@tokeriis @jeppe Jeg synes nok også at det er at sætte tingene lige vel meget på spidsen at sige at hvis man handler med Israel, så er man medskyldig i krigsforbrydelser. Samme påstand kunne med lige så god rette gøres gældende over for alle som handler med Kina.

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@jpelckolsen @tokeriis @jeppe Det er vist noget mere brogede krav end det. Nogle af kravene nævnt i denne artikel er temmelig utopiske. https://www.cnn.com/2024/04/26/investing/what-pro-palestinian-protesters-want/index.html

@anderspuck What do you think about the Russian announcement today of a drill with tactical nuclear weapons?

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@kallekn In general I will say that the more under pressure the Russians feel, the more they will talk about nuclear weapons. So I would take this as a sign that they feel less confident than they did a month ago.

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@kallekn Yes, I response both to Macron and Cameron, but also to the American assistance package. I don’t think the exercise will include actual nuclear warheads. My guess is it just means they will be practicing the procedures. Or maybe they won’t, and it’s all just for show. 😊

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@kallekn Yes. It does seem that this is coming back after having been absent for a while.
My general take is that Russian use of nuclear weapons to win the war in Ukraine remains highly unlikely, but that we should be careful about ruling anything out if at some point Putin is fighting for the grasp on power in Russia.

anderspuck,
@anderspuck@krigskunst.social avatar

@shuro @mok0 @kallekn @troed If Russia uses nuclear weapons in Ukraine, countries like China and India will have to side against them. It could fairly quickly lead to them losing the war.
