I think a lot of this news is BS, but one of the convoys moved 3 miles yesterday. That is measurable, I can think of no reason for a long stop to regroup unless you have been completely discombobulated. That convoy is just a target.

I don't know how credible this is, but there are reports that Russian convoys are stalled because they are out of fuel. The supposed reason is that Russian soldiers are dumping the fuel from their tanks and fighting vehicles to avoid entering the battle.

Is this credible or just propaganda?

It takes a lot of planning and coordination to move large convoys of tanks, fighting vehicles and all their support requirements. It's not something you can pull off in an ad hoc manner

Then why did you ask the question for peoples opinion? .... :cuckoo:
What makes you so sure it's propaganda? The morale problems in the Russian Army are well documented.

I saw something similar happen with one NCO during Desert Storm. He shut off the fuel flow to his APC knowing it would stop the fuel flow to his engine. He was unsuccessful because one of his team leaders caught him doing it and took care of it.

The Ukraine Guerrillas are likely shooting holes in the fuel tanks. That was Afghanistan's most effective strategy halting & destroying US supply lines. The tankers streaming fuel as the entire convoy drives through it, then incoming rocket sets the entire convoy ablaze.

I didn’t know there were gorillas in Ukraine.

We should funnel Stingers and Javelins into Kyiv. The Russians seem to be attempting a siege. Surrounding the city and limiting ingress and egress. If Ukranians had adequate firepower they might stand a chance.

Also the 40 mile long Russian convoy seems like a bunch of sitting ducks. With adequate firepower the Ukrainians could attack the convoy. And cut off re-supplies.
