Three important observations about Ukrainian air defense. First, the air defense effectiveness improved over time and now it is more than 80%. Second, the Ukrainian Air Force is not capable of destroying some types of enemy missiles. Third, with Patriot systems, which are expected to arrive soon, the situation will improve dramatically.

Another post from Prof Sheremeta, from Jan 27:

All those who are pushing Ukraine for peace talks with russia, please, take a close look at this photo. It is Grozny, the capital city of Chechnya. In 1999, it was erased by russians, three years after russia signed peace treaty with Chechnya. Russia couldn’t win the war, so it took a break only to come back and destroy the country, killing hundreds of thousands of Chechens.

The only language that russians understand is the language of force. They have to be humiliated and beaten decisively. Otherwise, we will live in constant fear of a an evil empire ready to attack any country at any time.




  1. Grozny, Chechnya. Three years after a signed peace treaty with Russia. Noted.

    Treaties with Russia are less useful than toilet paper. Noted.

  2. Chechnya should set an example for those who opt for a ceasefire or peace treaty that doesn’t include a destroyed mafia army. WWII should have also been a lesson to those in high places. Georgia, Syria and the various African nations too, where mafia land has committed atrocities.
    But, the West is ruled by the three famous monkeys, see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.
    After almost one year of terrible war in Europe, we still see no plan, no ideas and no concepts about this war and mafia land, only monkeys who react instead of acting according to their potential powers. We still have large amount of business with mafia land. We still have weapon systems that Ukraine needs but is not getting. Every day, innocent civilians are getting killed and maimed, but this doesn’t matter much.
