Panzer, Marsch

chronicle of the Western Panzerkampfwagen in Ukraine

Humor on social networks
  • Overture

A little over 80 years ago, in 1941, under the leadership of Germany, Europe invaded the Soviet Union. In June 1942, Ukraine was the rear base of a Nazi offensive toward the Caucasus and Volga river, but in January 1943, the annihilation of Friedrich Paulus’ 6. Armee at Stalingrad reversed the tide of WW2. The last Nazi offensive, in July, triggered around Kursk the largest tank battle in history and a new Soviet victory. The Red Army liberated Kiev in November 1943 and seized Berlin in May 1945

Lviv is in western Ukraine the epicenter of a Nazi legacy since WW2. Late 2013, an economical dispute with the European Union led, in western Ukraine and Kiev, to a pro-Europe uprising against the legal government. With the help of Nazi political organizations from Lviv and likely, foreign provocative gunmen, NATO achieved a rightist coup in February 2014. Later, Russian-speaking residents of Crimea and Donbass have risen up against the Russophobia of the new authorities, which called them terrorists, cracked down on them with the loyal members of the armed forces and the same Nazi militants, legalized meanwhile as paramilitaries. That was the outbreak of war in Donbass. NATO countries are offering their military support to Ukraine since the beginning. Galvanized, the successive Ukrainian governments did not seriously negotiate, have not implemented Minsk peace agreements. Former German Kanzlerin, Angela Merkel confessed to der Zeit on December 7, 2022

2014 Minsk agreement was an attempt to buy Ukraine time. It has used this time to strengthen itself, as can be seen today

France and Germany were hypocritical when they sponsored an agreement which was supposed to cease fire and bring peace. The Western goal was actually to gain time, in order for NATO to reinforce the military power of the Ukrainian Nazi deep State. Ukraine has carried on with the terrorist shelling of civilians and on February 24, 2022, Russia has started a special military operation, in order to liberate Donbass, demilitarize and denazify Ukraine. That is the proxy war that NATO was seeking. Why ? In order to preserve a hegemony on the decline if not already an illusion, against Russia, China and most of the wide world, for a new world order against a multipolar one, the US and their European vassals are regarding that war as an opportunity of strategic victory. Their wet dream is to dismember Russia and subdue China

Among other symbolic references to Nazism and German army during WW2, the Ukrainian military vehicles are displaying a white cross since September 2022

The Balkenkreuz [bar cross] was the common sign on German Panzer on September 1, 1939, when began the invasion of Poland and WW2. The symbol later evolved and remained until 1945

Russia is enforcing an attrition strategy. The operations are a carnage for the Ukrainian forces. While the Ukrainian artillery is firing around 6,000 shells a day all over the front line, the Russian consumption may raise to 50,000, has reminded late November 2022 a senior anonymous NATO official. In view of the Russian air supremacy, tactical, operational and strategic strikes on military targets, despite the massive involvement of Western intelligence, the Ukrainian casualties are obviously far higher

Ukrainian servicemen complain on line about lack of equipment, flight of officers and terrible casualties. These thirty men, one platoon, are the last able-bodied fighters, maybe 25%, within a whole company of the 25th airborne brigade (screenshot on December 12, 2022)
As often in Ukraine, here in Kiev on December 30, 2022, women are demonstrating and demanding news or the corpses of their missing relatives, which are likely dead but nobody has informed the families. For propaganda reason, the authorities are hiding the reality of severe military losses. Moreover, no pension is paid for a missing service member

According to a Russian mathematical model, the Ukrainian military fatalities since February 24 are currently above 150,000. On November 30, the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, confirmed that the death toll was already above 100,000. The fatalities are not restricted to the Ukrainian cannon fodder, Western mercenaries are also killed in the ranks of that Atlanticist army

Lock of the Atlanticist defense system in the still occupied part of Donbass, Bakhmut, also called Artemovsk, is a hot spot, where the Ukrainian reserves are currently sacrificed

For Wagner private military company (PMC), a major Russian force involved so far in the area, Yevgeny Prigozhin has already stated on November 26, 2022

Bakhmut is a large, well-fortified area with roads, suburbs, and water barriers. The Ukrainian army is well-prepared and offers decent resistance. Our task is not Bakhmut itself, but the attrition of the Ukrainian army to reduce its combat potential, which is why this operation has been dubbed the ‘Bakhmut meat grinder.’ In this regard, do not run ahead of the locomotive, we will let you know, happiness loves silence

In the hope of turning the tide in 2023, Ukraine should receive Western armored fighting vehicles (AFV), 59 US infantry fighting vehicles (IFV) Bradley, 40 German IFV Marder and 30 French AMX-10 RC, which are not tanks, despite their 105 mm gun, but old armored recce vehicles

Turkish media early January

On January 11, 2023, Volodymyr Zelenskyy met in Lviv, western Ukraine, his counterparts from Lithuania and Poland, Gitanas Nausėda and Andrzej Duda. Together, they decided to reinforce in Ukraine the defense of the so-called Euro-Atlantic coalition. Poland would transfer a company of German-made Leopard tanks

(Official)

In the wake, the UK has announced the delivery of 14 Challenger tanks. But in matter of Leopards, Poland and the other east European good wills need that Germany allows their reconveyance.

German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung reported that in a phone call with US president Joe Biden on January 17, Kanzler Olaf Scholz has claimed to be ready to deliver Leopards to Ukraine, but on one condition : if the US in turn delivered Abrams tanks. On January 19, der Bundestag debated the delivery of Panzer to Ukraine. Member of parliament Peter Bystron, AfD (Alternative für Deutschland, Alternative for Germany, right-wing), stated

German Panzer against Russia in Ukraine ? By the way, you already tried that with the Melnyks and Banderas [Stepan Bandera, Ukrainian Nazi leader during WW2] and what is the result ? Unspeakable suffering, millions of dead on both sides and in the end, Russian tanks here in Berlin !

He added

The conflict in Ukraine cannot be solved with Panzer, only with diplomacy […] Only the US armaments companies benefit from arms deliveries […] The majority of the German people reject arms deliveries to Ukraine. The traffic light government [red-greenshould finally start conducting politics in the interests of the German people

A number of parties were opposing the transfer and the decision was postponed. Meanwhile, the Russian regular forces started to attack in the south, are threatening Orekhovsky, 65 km southeast of Ukrainian-occupied Zaporojie, on the left bank of Dnieper river. If confirmed and successful, such an offensive could lead to the destruction of the Atlanticist forces east of the river

On November 18, Volodymyr Zelenskyy has appointed him deputy foreign affairs minister. On January 20, 2023, Melnyk called for a tank coalition in Ukraine

According to dem Spiegel, the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND, German intelligence) was then assessing that the Atlanticist forces were losing three-digit numbers of soldiers every day around Bakhmut.

On January 21, a Wagner fighter proudly displayed his trophies, including the chevrons that he had seized in Bakhmut area, on demilitarized foreign mercenaries from Canada, Georgia, Italy, Turkey, the UK and US

In the Ostgebiete [eastern territories] on January 23, the psychodrama went on when Polish prime minister Mateusz Morawiecki stated

We will apply for such consent from Germany, but this is a secondary topic. Even if we do not get this consent at the end, as part of a small coalition, even if the Germans would not be in this coalition, we will still hand over our tanks [German Leopards] together with others to Ukraine. The condition for us at the moment is to build at least a just small coalition of States […] in Western Europe […]

The campaign #FreeTheLeopards was trending on social networks, with involvement of characters like Finnish prime minister Sanna Marin

The French press may be the worst coterie worldwide of atavistic lackeys. The State is subsidizing them all. Their reports about the prospects of tanks delivery to Ukraine are hilarious. The public propaganda channel franceinfo asks on January 24

War in Ukraine: why does Germany have control over Poland’s [German] tanks ?

But the right-wing Point states

It would not be a good idea to deliver [French] Leclerc tanks to Ukraine

The suspense ends the same day, when according to dem Spiegel and other German outlets, Kanzler Olaf Scholz has agreed to send German Panzerkampfwagen to Ukraine. The historians will measure the part of the submission to the US and that of a pure German neurosis

My brief forecast : the Western tanks are carrying four crew members, require training, will not be soon on the front line. A few dozens will not turn the tide in Ukraine, but will be destroyed. According to the Russian defense ministry, the Atlanticist forces have already lost more than 7,600 tanks and other AFVs in 11 months, since February 24, 2022. The spectacle of the combustion on the battlefield of Western tanks may have a larger psychological and political impact than their military influence

  • January 25, 2023

The government confirms that Germany will send 14 Leopards to Ukraine. The plan is to form two battalions, that is about 88 tanks, with contribution of other countries. New German defense minister, Boris Pistorius predicts that these formations may reach the front line in about three months, that is early May.

Besides, we already know the way (Les Humeurs d’Oli)

Poland has already announced the delivery of a company, that is 14 vehicles. Germany has managed to convince the US, which will deliver 31 Abrams, confirms Joe Biden. 14 British Challengers should be also part of the 88 Western Panzerkampfwagen ultimately engaged in Ukraine. 75% of mankind are eager to watch their wrecks on the battlefield. Government by grocers is a curse.

For a wide majority of Russians, the near involvement of Western tanks is a reminder of the Great Patriotic War against Nazi Europe. Some channels are giving advice on how to burn the new German Panzerkampfwagen

Ukraine needs now crew members and more broadly, a new batch of cannon fodder. I guess some recruits were volunteer in March 2022, but the most are likely dead, now. The scenes of forced mobilization are increasingly cruel. An amateur video surfaces from Cherkasy. The woman has attempted to record the abduction of the man

The first rewards are offered on social networks. One million rubles for the first captured Panzerkampfwagen, the half for the first destroyed one

The same day, Pentagon spokeswoman Sabrina Singh states

we just don’t have these tanks [Abrams M1A2] available in excess in our US stocks

That is why the vehicles for Ukraine shall be manufactured. According to Politico, the sole plant is producing 12 machines per month, is overbooked for Taiwan and Poland, which is eager to replace its 250 T-72 already delivered to Ukraine.

Berlin has approved their exportation, Rheinmetall company plans to sell 88 Leopard I (one) to Ukraine for €100 million. The tank entered service in 1965. The version should be 1A5, an improvement in 1987, but the gun is still 105 mm and the armor is feeble. The Westerners have no regard for the Ukrainian cannon fodder
