OT Ukrainian military Oscars

(Videos well worth the time it takes to watch them.)

{It doesn’t look like the Ukrainians will require more than Beans, Bullets and Bandages from US to beat the snot out of Putin’s army. (Maybe I should buy stock in US armaments companies?)}

Ukrainian military Oscars: Kyiv’s forces announce the seven best videos of moments from the war… from the destruction of a Russian landing ship to missile tank ambushes

It handed out awards for Best Picture and Best Cinematography on Twitter

Tractors towing away Russian tanks were given Best Supporting Actor in awards

Best Supporting Actor: Ukrainian Tractor in The Taming of the Shrew

Footage of Russian tanks being towed away by tractors became one of the defining images of the brave resistance among Ukrainian civilians.

The dramatic downing of a Russian helicopter with a Stinger missile was awarded Best Cinematography in the Oscars parody.

Best Actress: Javelin for the powerful performance in Burning Orcs

Another clip shared by the Defence Ministry shows the use of a Javelin anti-tank missile against a Russian armoured vehicle.

Best Production Design: Ambush, From UA Army With NLAW

A convoy of Russian tanks was destroyed in a Ukrainian ambush in Brovary earlier this month in the video given Best Production Design for its explosive power.

Best Song: Anthem of Ukraine by UA girls in Kharkiv Bomb Shelter

Aside from the dramatic videos of explosions, many of the most touching moments have been the human side of the war in Ukraine.

I’ll admit to being surprised by this, I thought it would end up being like the Americans
in Iraq: roll thru the country in conventional military battles, but then get bled
heavily with guerilla warfare during the occupation.

In both cases fighting for their own country, not somebody else’s country?

When Americans stop voting for politicians who look for a war to gain votes at home it might stop?

What cracks me up is, after invading Ukraine and reducing sizeable parts of some cities to rubble, Putin has the chutzpah to cry that Russia is a victim over Ukrainians hitting a few storage tanks.
