Not really weird....according to the article the subs being sent our are a deterrent to the west to stay out of whatever happens.  Winter seems like a bad time to kick this off.  I really figured Russia would time this with whatever China has planned for after the olympics.

But maybe Russia is looking to keep the EU/NATO in check by yanking the Natural Gas reins during the winter.  Harder to do that in the summer.

Jamestown.org has a number articles on Russian natural gas politics with regard to Moldovia that are pretty decent.

I've been wondering about the coup story. Seems fake and something the Kiev gov has drummed up but not something I would entirely put past Russia doing. What is your take on it?

Zelensky wouldn't be in power if not for a Western financed coup. Typical backwards bullshit.

The Ukrainians remind me of the Poles in 1939, betting on "allied" promises. They're going to get stomped on if they're not careful

Go with the odds. When Western media is pimping: Russia-Ukraine border: Why Moscow is Stoking Tensions they are lying to us all. Remember that the US was at the center of the Color Revolution as well as the Arab Spring.

Maneuvers with the participation of more than 10 thousand servicemen began in the south of Russia


Moscow. December 1. INTERFAX.RU - More than 10 thousand servicemen as part of battalion tactical groups of motorized rifle formations of the Southern Military District marched to the areas of combined arms training grounds, the press service of the Southern Military District reports.

"In the field, about a third of the units of all formations and military units of the Southern Military District will begin the winter training period for the new academic year. More than at 30 combined-arms training grounds, "the message says.

It is noted that autonomous field camps APL-500 have been deployed on the basis of the main training grounds to accommodate personnel. For the first time, training sessions started at the new Nesterovsky training ground in Ingushetia and the Danilovsky training ground in the Volgograd region.

For the rest of the units, the winter training period will begin at the points of permanent deployment - in classrooms and on the command-line training and material base - as part of the second and third training modules.

The modular training system, organized on a rotational basis, provides comprehensive training for all departments during each month.

Nearly all currencies are shit right now including the dollar, oddly even with the massive debasement the dollar has seen nearly all the other currencies are being devalued at an even faster rate. The great reset is a massive pay cut and asset theft all in one. On the other side all but a select few will be much poorer.

This IS GD, where we fly off the handle and jump to the craziest conclusion.

Didnt Russia do this last year (or was it earlier this year) when they had their massive mil. buildup at the border "acting" like they were about to invade only to return to barracks after. Some theorized that it was the precursor or rehersal for an actual invasion, preparing routes and forward positions and maybe even pre-positioning equipment.  

Or is all of this meant to make Ukraine bankrupt by constantly mobilizing for an invasion that comes politically rather than militarily?

During spring most had figured that the probability of an attack then was low.  After their partial drawdown it was pointed out that much of their equipment was left at the sites and fall-winter was cited as the next period for any happenings.  Which brings us to now.
