Video title reads : 'Crimea Bridge Suicide Truck Bombing'

From what I see, that heading and any mention of it being a truck-bomb may be false.

Have a look at the clip and see a shower of sparks and smoke coming from the far right, thereafter moving towards the left of the screen.
I considered wind, though if it had taken place on the bridge, by a truck, wouldn't the after-effects of the blast be raining down evenly, and not off from the right side of that bridge? :135:

Regardless, the escalations are not looking good.

I can tell you this much, there's something very off in both the video angles that have been released. I'm not convinced it was a truck bomb, but I'm very convinced there's something Russian authorities don't want anyone to see. I immediately downloaded all the HD footage I could find and running it through my NLE I see something very strange as the white flash (presumably the camera processor getting overloaded) happens. The truck is still there for at least two frames as the white flash appears to be working its way across the screen from the bottom to the top (like a wipe transition would).

(Disclaimer: Hobbyist video skills, it could just be an artifact created in the compression. Seems obvious to me the surveillance system would be non-interlaced and perhaps when it was compressed for the web they interlaced it.) Still, something seems off.

News: For every action...
More troops and equipment will be sent to the Baltics and Romania to increase NATO's presence in eastern Europe in the coming months, France's Minister of Defense Sebastien Lecornu said on Tuesday.

Additional forces will be sent to Estonia and Rafale fighter jets to Lithuania
It's not a huge presence and I have yet to see if it bolsters NATO standing forces, or simply allows other members to rotate out, but many hands make light work.

Lord Dannatt discussed reports of Ukraine's air defence knocking down up to 43 of the 80 missiles fired by Russian troops. The former head of the British army also discussed seeing a message from a contact about how Russian right-wing ultra-nationalists were angry with Russian President Putin. He claimed that the ultra-nationalists were annoyed that the Russian dictator spent $200m on firing at meaningless targets in Ukraine. Lord Dannatt went on to compare Russia's weaponry with Ukraine's gifted top-of-the-range weapons systems.

Bizarre messaging from the G7 today, apparently "we" will "hold Putin to account" and "support Ukraine as long as it takes"

Followed closely by the great headline "Yellen urges G7 countries to disburse funds earmarked for Ukraine"

Us "Hang in there buddy, we are here for you"
Ukraine "Can I have tanks and cash?"
Us "Uhhh, yeahhh.. Let me just check my other jeans, sure I had some bucks in there"

I really doubt that the strikes are solely retaliation for the bridge bombing attempt. The bridge is small potatoes, despite being fairly strategic. There are ferry lines, there's a land connection by now.

I think the list of actions of Ukraine came to light includes many other things besides the bridge:

- Continuous shelling of Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant
- Three terrorism attempts on Kursk Nuclear Power Plant
- Plans or attempts on the Turkish gas pipeline
- Shelling of civilians in Donetsk/Luhanks
- Covering large areas where civilians are present with landmines
- Killing of govt representatives in Russian-controlled territories. Heck, they're killing teachers for teaching kids in schools.

So, altogether a fairly concerning list of actions.

Hopefully, they'll listen. Would be dumb not to.

PS: If anything, I find it ironic that the Ukrainian govt bombs the bridge and people on "Ukrainian" territory. They keep claiming it as theirs and keep portraying people living there as struggling under occupation....LET'S BOMB THEIR INFRASTRUCTURE AND KILL A FEW OF THEM IN THE PROCESS! They did the exact same thing when they were bombing electricity lines, and shut off their water, and gas pipelines back a few years ago, they keep shelling Donetsk and Luhansk areas killing civilians. So much care for fellow Ukrainians struggling under occupations.

And then they wonder why everybody in Crimea and Donbass area hates them and votes to join Russia.

As we roll into winter - Ukraines troops are covering extended areas, over terrain the Russians denuded, with longer, vulnerable supply lines. No wonder theyre screaming for air defense now.

Their pantry - Kiev, Lvov etc - are now also being attacked. Look for a near term budget crisis as fuel costs rise.

Oh yeah, and more Russians are coming.

Huh, more Russians coming. Weapons from the 70's, no ammunition, no gear, helmets, vests and everyone is sick.

1. Russia is a great threat to Europe
2. Russia has old weapons from the 70's and they have no gear and they are sick so relax bros.

Ramzan Kadyrov's latest batch of TiKToK stars are feeling very threatened by pronouns and parades.

Meh, seems reasonable enough to a few people on here, I'm sure.

Math problem of the day.

If $200 million kills about 15 to 20 people who don't want their mind changed (assuming those missiles got those people - and I don't believe that for a second) how much will it cost to kill the 1 to 5 million people, Pavel Gubarev is talking about in the video above?

ETA: Deeper Background:
Pavel Gubarev is a Russian activist and former neo-Nazi who proclaimed himself the "People's Governor" of the Donetsk Region at the Regional Assembly on 3 March 2014, after separatists seized the building. Gubarev had earlier declared himself leader of the Donbas People's Militia.
...
In 2022, Gubarev signed a short-term contract with the Russian Armed Forces, as a private, in order to participate in the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The "denazify" spiel didn't pan out.
They had to come up with something else.

Yeap, that's it.

So, for my friends on here that can't pivot quite as fast as the Russian propaganda pipeline, how many gay pride parades did the Nazis have? Anyone?

Ukraine has received a delivery of the German IRIS-T air defense system, Der Spiegel magazine reported on Tuesday. The handover took place on Tuesday near the Polish-Ukrainian border.

Ukraine Touts 'New Era of Air Defense' with Missiles, NASAMS, More HIMARS

Reznikov announced Tuesday evening on Twitter that the Ukrainian military has received four more High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), which have previously been used to upend Russia's war effort. Also on the way are National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems (NASAMS), which Ukrainian officials have sought to protect against Russian missiles and drones.

Meet General Sergei "Armageddon" Surovikin, Putin's new senior commander for Ukraine war.
Vladimir Putin has appointed a new commander to lead Russia’s ailing war in Ukraine, said to have a reputation for “brutality” and “total ruthlessness”.

Aged 55, the decorated commander has a long and bloody history of leading Russian soldiers domestically and abroad, and was described by the UK’s Ministry of Defence in June of having a career “dogged with allegations of corruption and brutality” for more than 30 years.
This is another one of those interesting reads locked behind a paywall. I'm saving you a couple of bucks again, because the truth is priceless.

https://web.archive.org/web/20221010200 ... 98544.html

The old syrian war double tap guy has a long and sordid past. When the official record is Putin made his deputy shoot himself to death in Surovikin's office, you have to wonder what really happened? (Cause like seriously, that just doesn't seem brutal enough.)

For those of us old enough to remember "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall", you'll probably remember the 1991 Soviet coup attempt and that moment when it looked like Russia might experience freedom and self-determination. Sergei was the guy in the BMP in Moscow that shot the protestors (and the clock) back to the Soviet era. Spoiler alert, Captain Sergey, as he was at the time, got away with it all, because Russian criminal elites, especially those with an entrepreneurial bent and the ability to kick it up, always do. Surovikin went into international arms smuggling and sold many of the weapons, the Russian military still thinks it has today, to the international black market.

Meh, just a serious and obedient psychopath with a penchant for monetizing mass murders.

That can't be right. Someone just posted the other day that Germany said they wouldn't send any more anything to help ukraine.
