BACKGROUND Following the events that unfolded since 2014 in Ukraine and elsewhere, then friction and tension steadily increased between Russia and their official and unofficial friends and de-facto allies and their opponents and critics. Regardless of where one lays the blame, then for each action there is an equal and opposite reaction. But Newtons law does not only apply to physics. Words can create a reality, and not necessarily the reality that was intended by the person who spoke or wrote them. But with real and tangible effects none the less. Russia being driven into a steadily more and more austere and then desperate political and economic position by sanctions from the West, including EU and USA, were faced with tough choices. Allthough China and other countries to some degree subverted the effect of the sanctions for various reasons by keeping up trade and to some degree support with and for Russia, then it was not just economic losses. The casualties created tensions inside Russia. Much like the 1979-89 War in Afghanistan, then mothers started to question the goals and losses. However and to the great and mounting surprise and disbelief of most western politicians, this did not lead to the collapse of the leadership of Russia. Despite the losses in Ukraine, the situation have stabilized to some degree with Russia sitting on the North and East of Ukraine. And they have scaled back the offensive and consolidated their positions. However this has not decreased the tension between Russia and NATO forces. EU have neither stepped up as a credible military deterrent, nor have they aligned politically with the effect that EU stand divided and weakened. And worse that they have weakened NATO by trying to create a much less strong alternative, and without the major force of NATO so USA. For better or worse then Sweden and Finland have joined NATO, but are in the process of integrating command, procedures, tactics and equipment with the remaining NATO countries. This have neither calmed nor reassured the countries that share official and unofficial borders with Russia. Creating a volatile and dangerous situation where large military forces are staring at each other, and with too little space separating them. A month ago the spark was lit. Russian forces came into contact with Polish forced and fire was exchanged. Surprisingly to most military analysts this seemed to spark a pre-planned Russian plan and offensive, which even more surprisingly seemed to have much greater traction and success from a Russian perspective than the war in Ukraine. Russia attacking from several directions, including Byelorussia, managed to inflict sizeable losses on NATO units. And even though they incurred significant losses themselves managed to push to Kalinki in south central Poland. That however was as far as they got. Mazurek Dabrowskiego! I. SITUATION. Enemy forces have attacked into Grudwa but we held on the outskirts by deteremined Polish defenders. The offensive has temporarily halted while Russian forces regroup for another attack and utilize the recently siezed Nisreni airfield to stage supplies and reinforcements. The Russians have temporarily transitioned to a defense to hold their ground and are defending the area with a Mechanized Infantry Brigade (BMP-2) that consists of 2x mechanized infantry battalions supported by a Tank Battalion equipped with T-72B3´s (T72M4). The battalion is also supported by a company of truck-mounted scouts (equipped with ATGM) as well as a dismounted platoon of ATGMs. II.
