Defense Minister Shoygu Admits Russian Army is Fighting in Eastern Ukraine
The photograph posted on Facebook by Mikhail Pashayev shows how the excited Defense Minister Sergey Kuzhugetovich Shoygu explains Russian Army operations to President Putin, while the Russian General Staff Chief, General Makarov, looks on in astonishment:
Shoygu: …and then I threw the Red Banner Sukhe-Bator Armored Cavalry Division at Debaltsevo! The little Mongolian horses are getting stuck to their bellies in the mud, but the gunners are continuing to fire from the armored turrets strapped to the saddles, 125mm cannon are glowing red from continuous firing, anti-tank missiles are whistling above the heads of the riders, it looks like the attack is stalling! But then the Buryat Assault Shaman Brigade starts to beat its drums to simulate 203mm howitzers. The US radar goes nuts, its display reads: “we’re f@cked”. The Ukrainians are fleeing! Victory!”.
Shoygu: Seriously, Volodya! That’s how it went down. You can’t fool Psaki!”
J.Hawk’s Note: Though it’s satire, the references to Russian units are taken directly from Ukrainian media reports on the fighting on the Donbass, and even official statements. Hardly any Russian Army unit of note has not been “decimated” by the UAF in its press releases…
