Russia did put their strategic air forces (euphemism for nukes) on alert last week.

Why implementing a no-fly zone over Ukraine isn't feasible:

tl;dr: Aside from being a ticket to WW3 the contested areas would be also covered by Russian SAMs, making it unfeasible, if not impractical and ineffective at best.

Ukrainian soldier flies Chinese drone, gets instantly targeted by a Russian missile.

Looks like a DJI Mavic? The missile comes in on his position just seconds after he retrieves the drone...

I've seen him before. Is/was he the spokesperson of the World of Tanks game?

Anyway, about the video, yeah, propaganda comes from all sides but Ukraine needs all the morale and support they can get  to resist the invasion. There's plenty of evidence of the Russian military's ineptitude and low morale which have practically negated their superior military advantage in an invasion that was supposed to have been decisive and with the expectation for it to have ended in a matter of days, and yet here we are.

Great vid. I love how he casually throws in some really geeky terms like 'saving throw' while analyzing war footage.

Speaking of tanks:

flagship Moskva was hit by a ukranian missile.

And...it sunk. Apparently, this was the flagship that was told to "go fuck yourself" by Ukrainian soldiers stationed on Snake Island. Karma is a bitch.

Someone recreated a plausible successful method of attack on the ship on DCS.
