Some context from the Saker

Some context from the Saker

Russia will mobilize about 1.2% of her mobilizational potential (UPDATED!) So, after lots of speculation, we now know that the Kremlin has decided to mobilize about 300’000 soldiers from a total mobilizational potential of 25’000’000 soldiers.  That’s just a little over 1% of Russia’s mobilizational potential.  We are talking only about those soldiers who have an official status of “reserves” and all of them will have to undergo a special training before being sent to the Ukraine. A few comments about…

The Saker returns to discuss the Special Military Operation in Ukraine

Five months into the Special Military Operation – a summary Vineyard of the Saker, 23 July, 2022 Note: after three months away (mostly) from the blog, it is a real pleasure for me to come back.

I have two urgent requests: 1) If you are an IT security specialist (or can contact one you know) and you think that you (or he/she), or your company, can help,…

Commentary from the Saker

Commentary from the Saker

The situation is about to quickly escalate, probably in the next days Today, I want to begin with a small allegorical story. One upon a time, there was a bear sleeping in his lair and minding his business.  One day, a small group of rodents decided to have some fun time pestering the bear.  So they began running around, making a lot of noise (some even dared the bear to come out and fight them) and even threw colorful little…

Russia recognition of the LDNR – a few initial thoughts

Russia recognition of the LDNR – a few initial thoughts

From the Saker Vineyard of the Saker, 21 February, 2022   I listened to the full Russian Security Council meeting, then to Putin’s address to the nation, then the signing of the the treaties on cooperation and mutual support.

And, just like in 2006, everybody in the region (and in Zone B) knows that…

The Saker [this analysis was written for the Unz Review] Before we look into what just happened in the Ukraine, we need to first recall the sequence of events which lead to the current situation. I will try to make a short summary (skipping a lot of details) in the bullet-point style: Whether Ze initially intended to stop the war in the eastern Ukraine we don’t know, but what we do know is that he failed not only to stop it,…

Russian amphibious options and how to debunk a Ukie lie (OPEN THREAD #13) Vineyard of the Saker, 17 April, 2021 You probably have heard that Russian moved almost the entire Caspian Flotilla to the Black Sea, including quite a few amphibious assault ships.  What you might not know is that Russia also moved two Large Landing Ships (“dock landing ships”) through the Mediterranean, across the Bosporus, also into the Black Sea.  Right now, the Black Sea Fleet has strongly increased…
