This one makes me think: They don't actually expect to hold on to that territory, do they? Because if they did, why bother to dismantle it and take it away?

This is basically the Russian military already and publicly accepting defeat and the fact that they will have to withdraw from Ukraine.

because they don't care about the people they are going in to Ukraine to "protect". This was never about Donbas or anything like that. It's about russia being russia - they are locusts, they don't have the ability to produce much so they invade a successful neighbour and steal everything of value.

Little history lesson needed.

The Soviet Union did the exact same thing with conquered territory. They moved a shitton of industrial equipment to Russia.

That's what's happening here as well. Consolidation of industry. They'll (try to) install it in Russia and create jobs for Russians. The people who "matter".

It's not about their projected performance in the war, it's all about The Grift.

I remember a old German lady telling me that they had to house Russian soldiers after the war. The loved the concept of having running water in the house snd not having to fetch it from a well. When they eventually left, they took all the taps so that they would have this feature at home as well in future.....

Not a lot has changed in 77 years, has it? (I hear they are selling toilets in Ukraine as well? Indoor plumbing still seems to be out of reach for the average Russian?)

Sanctions should stay there for good so next generations can suffer for their parents outrageous “work”. Those who join Russia in war will probably brainwash their kids to do the same, and teach hatred towards west and Ukraine. Nothing will change, Russia (their government and followers in specific) have proven all over again that they only want war and chaos, not peace

54

u/Cyclonit 14d ago

Sanctions must remain in place until all damages plus additional compensation are payed and all involved in these crimes have been brought to justice.

But punishing children for crimes their parents committed is nonsense. If the children aren't responsible for the crime, they should not be punished. Obviously we can't avoid them being impacted by sanctions, but targeting them directly is counter productive. We want future grnerations of Russians to see the faults in their ancestors ways. Like Germans todsy learn about and from the Nazis crimes.

u/SlantViews 14d ago

There is no switch that you flick from one generation to the next. Generations are a concept that only exists in human discussions. The reality is there are millions of "generations" happening in Russia right now. It's a fluid process of society ageing.

And when do you "stop punishing children for their parents" when the current children keep doing what their parents started? But then their children are innocent. Oh, until they grow up and do the same shit over and over again.

It's a cultural problem and the sanctions should stay in place until the damage that Russia (the country) inflicted is repaired/compensated.

Sanctions don't just exist to "teach them a lesson". For all we care they can remain the dumb fucks they are. The only thing that we care about is having Ukraine compensated. After that, they can die stupid as we say here. Nobody cares. Lost cause anyway.

Option 2, they get out of it before they completely fall apart and before the current gouvernment is overthrown. Then they maybe woudl eb able to pay for stuff, but absolutely not going to

I dotn see any scenario in which they will lose in a way, that makes them both, willign and able to pay

42

u/lowlightliving 13d ago

Debt that is very likely to be cancelled when they win and get this shit over with, at least a reasonable percentage. It’s been done for countries with fewer assets or ability to repay or repay the debt in other ways.

It’s better to have Ukraine as a European bulwark with a modern, equipped military, and reestablished business opportunity and success. I think the problem of corruption has had fresh eyes observing. All the population trampled and those who’ve lost family and those who’ve fought for every inch of Ukraine territory are unlikely to go back to the old ways. Ukraine has enormous potential, they’ll just need help to restructure and rebuild.

That's not enough to keep Russia afloat. Their country was already failing in every metric even when the entire world was buying their resources. Now imagine how much worse it is when they're only getting a few buyers and have to sell it even cheaper.

Together with the sanctions and military expenses, Russia is 100% heading for full national bankruptcy and poverty. No amount of resource selling will stop that when Asian countries can essentially dictate the prices because if they don't buy it, nobody else will.

u/cateowl 13d ago

European nations are working to get rid of russian gas as fast as we can, even turning on coal plants to reduce the need for gas so we can stockpile it. And started fracking in unstable areas exposing our own populations to probable future earthquakes.

y es we still buy reduced gas from russia, but Russia knows this won't keep happening for very long. The bigger problem is that since we need to switch over to gas from elsewhere, we have to out-bid other countries and such which is helping raise the price of russian gas on the international market too. We could try imposing secondary sanctions on the countries that still buy russian gas to scare of others, but the sad reality is the rets of the world needs gas too.

Western europe should have switched over to nuclear energy long ago, should have safe modern reactors running. Uranium is trivially easy to stockpile in massive quantities compared to gas, so much so that many nuclear plants have their entire lifetime fuel supply delivered to them upon start up and never need new fuel.

u/potatopierogie 13d ago

Solar panels for your house? No.

But most power is generated as AC, synchronous AC if possible. Not much is generated as DC, like the solar panels will make. This requires a synchronous inverter or "tie in" inverter. For your house that's easy enough, there's a ready supply of mass produced small inverters. But Russia would likely need to purchase a massive inverter to run their "new" solar farm from another country if they have any issues.

It's not that they couldn't figure it out, but I honestly don't know how long they'll be able to keep it running.

u/12345623567 13d ago

Theres a thing in economics called "creative destruction", meaning old technology is replaced by new one. This creates short-term losses but long-term profits, and it doesnt just extend to physical hardware. Entire job fields can become obsolete (e.g. coal miners), but when you retrain people for something useful the overall economy vastly profits.

I wonder if that is part of the reason why the baltics are pretty well off today. Russia took everything not nailed down, so the people had no choice but to modernize.

We unanoumously condemn nazis and fascism and will mobilise our defence forces for a special military operation to eradicate the nazis in Ukraine and bring peace back to the russian peoples.

We will eradicate any all all murderers rapists and thieves who have taken the peace from Russians and innocent Ukrainians alike.

Very true but at least russia can foot the bill for that, globally we have more than 750 billion in frozen russian foreign currency and assets :) it might take years but justice for ukraine will be served. Served cold too! 😈

We cant let them get away with there actions any more! Even to threaten you and my friends and colleagues in finland is a step too far in my books.

which shows that they have no hope to keep the occupied territory, and are getting prepared to flee.

u/chris-za 14d ago

Exactly. It's the Russian military publicly admitting that they will have to withdraw from Ukraine and have no chance on holding that territory.

Because if they did, why steal it if it already comes "in a bundle" with the land you successfully stole?

8

u/Why_Teach 14d ago

My guess would be someone wants too sell it, plus it is also a way to show their power. I agree that if they weren’t concerned that they won’t keep the territory they might not have stolen it now.

u/chris-za 13d ago

Sell t to whom? Syria might be an option. Or North Korea? Probably the only options.

Who else would risk buying stolen goods and probably having to reimburse the Ukrainian owner or return them? Even if you are "safe" in your neutral home country, you probably have assets abroad or would like to travel some time?

Alternatively they could try selling individual panels on eBay. But that will hardly be worth the effort.

The crazy part about this is that now that they have disassembled them, they'll have no idea how to put it back together and even make it work. So this thing is going to be reduced to scrap simply because those clowns have no idea what they're even looking at.

They did this with the Germans in WW2, and all of Eastern Europe during the Cold War, where they stole literally everything, but had to abandon their loot because they had no idea how it worked.

We've already seen this with the toilets and taps.

It'd be absolutely hilarious, if they weren't destroying an entire nation in the process.

And for what? I guarantee you they wouldn't even have been able to get everything necessary over to Russia and even if they did, they wouldn't be able to maintain it because of sanctions.

They can't even make cars with airbags, but you think they'll be capable of running a stolen solar power plant?

u/Titanium-Snowflake 13d ago

Multiple posts here with links to satellite images showing the solar farm intact in the last 48hours. So it appears this is not correct reporting.

4

u/L0tt1ce 13d ago

Yeah, what I thought. Agitative propaganda. Goes both ways. People want to believe whatever fits what they already wanted to believe. Simple confirmation bias.

2

u/Titanium-Snowflake 13d ago

From what I understand it began with locals reporting the theft, and then it was reported on social media. And so it goes on and on. Then someone double checks and realises “oh! Ooops!” But by then, as you say, the confirmation bias has got everyone expressing outrage, and it’s almost impossible to correct. But not entirely!

u/vert1s 13d ago

As others have mentioned, this doesn't appear to be true.

Leaving that aside, I thought I would share how people have researched this. You can look at something recent (20th June) and then go back in time.

They take it not because they can use it, but so that Ukraine need s more oil.

It's probably gathering dust somewhere in a warehouse.

As it's stolen, it can reasonably be claimed back.

We studied this stuff in my history classes about the Nazis and WWII. When they invaded France, they stripped factories and took the machinery back to Germany.

However, efficient production was all about the whole process. So the machinery they stole wasn't particularly useful.

The whole Russian operation is literally the Nazis in WWII and Adolf Hitler. It's literally history repeating.

They know they will lose. If they thought Ukraine was to become all of Russia why would they steal it? They're just trying to take everything their tiny hands can carry before they go back to their shit hole and remember the good old days of looting houses with toilets and washing machines.
