Daily pictures : spoil of war

(Alexander Kots / Komsomolskaya Pravda)

On July 8, 2022, seized military vehicles and Western weapons are displayed to the public in freed Lisichansk, Lugansk People’s Republic. Servicemen of the 6th republican Cossack regiment, alongside Chechen national guard and other Russian forces, have driven the Ukrainian army out of the city on July 2

In its proxy war against Russia, NATO is supporting Ukraine with weapons, ammunition, intelligence and also the direct involvement of military operatives. The shipment of 155 mm howitzers, like US M777s, has begun in April. Since late June, they are increasingly involved in the terrorist shelling of civilians in residential areas of Donetsk People’s Republic.

Their criminal use is not the sole aspect of a mixed record. In this regard, French CaESAr (canon équipé d’un système d’artillerie) self-propelled 155 mm gun is highly symbolic

On May 28, the CaESAr is the subject of a Ukrainian official pictures set

As mainly reports reliable lawyer Régis de Castelnau, from anonymous French military sources, France has delivered so far to Ukraine 14 CaESArs, 20% of its own stock. Some were intended for Morocco, others were already equipping the French army. Four have been destroyed, three on the path to the front, one late June, during the duel for Zmeiny (serpentine) island. Four are now out of order, should be repaired abroad. Smugglers have sold two others to Russia, €120k each one, while their regular unit price is €5M.

  2. […] Deliveries of NATO weapons to Ukraine, Ukrainian offensives and terrorism, partial mobilization in Russia, sabotage of Nord Stream pipelines, return of Donbass and southern Ukraine to Russia, continuous hysteria of most Western media, the situation is tense around Ukraine, between the West, on one side, Russia and a growing part of the wide world, on the other one.

  3. […] ammunition, depleted its own stocks, without significant results. The most newsworthy use of French long-range 155mm howitzers or US HIMARS MLRS is so far the deliberate terrorist shelling of civilians. On September […]
