Does Russian president posts current pictures of his soldiers with Nazi insignia? Ukranian does!

Does Russian ministry of Defense posts current pictures of their soldiers with Nazi insignia? Ukranian does!

Does Russia have any units with Nazi insignia on their official flags? Ukraine does!

That trumps all grainy pictures and loose connections you can make up

Speaking of spuds...

So Pavel Gubarev was replaced through a bunch of backroom dealing in Moscow by Denis Pushilin, Gubarev's former deputy "people's governor" of the Russian occupied Donestsk Region.

Denis Pushilin's main claim to fame, prior to supporting the former Nazi, is that he ran a Ponzi scheme that bilked investors out of millions.

That was then, this is now.

Here's Putin's pick for the Donestsk Region, awarding a St George Cross II medal to Senior Lieutenant Roman Vorobyov...

Apparently another Russian backed neo-nazi. [icon_lol2.gif]

Swing and miss, it's not Totenkopf, and you'd see it if you posted a hi res picture of it because it would be obvious- it's a skull and bones wearing a beret which is a very common symbol for soldiers of fortunes and special forces.

Totenkopf that you see on Ukranian soldiers is an official Nazi insignia though.

And I don't know what Valknot is, but seeing that girls on Etsy make jewelry out of it tells me it's not official Nazi insignia [icon_lol2.gif]

Good try though :up:

What's that? You're willing to take a swing and a miss... [icon_lol2.gif]

Holy, this one even has the Totenkopf flag embedded in the skull. Now that's commitment.

The Valknot, also called the 'knot of slain', is an old Norse symbol associated with Odin and the afterlife. White Supremacists (And Pat King) have been known to use the symbol as a way to demonstrate their willingness to give their lives for the cause.

This is that... (oh please... [icon_lol2.gif] )

Lie to your friends and bankers. I'm just some random guy on the internet that doesn't believe the tripe you publish here - don't waste your time.

Yup, I even found where they are sold in Ukraine:

As you can see not even close to Nazi insignia that looks like this. Don't think WW2 era Nazis ever wore operator helmets with night vision mount [icon_lol2.gif]

Same store sells the other one too.

Good try [icon_lol2.gif] [icon_lol2.gif]

Just as it was getting good last night my internet went out and I was reduced to a 4G shell of my usual self.

News........

Igor Girkin is freaking right out on telegram about this "Bridge too Far" river crossing disaster.

Image

In his rant ( [icon_lol2.gif] ) he released some preliminary figures; 550+ loss in terms of manpower, and at least a couple Command and Control folks down. He went off about the fact the geniuses kept going back for more and claims they did so 3 times. (Ukrainian sources suggest they did it 5 times.) He's called defense Minister Shoigu "negligent" and said he doesn't have any evidence to suggest he's a "traitor".

I'll get a visa to visit Moscow long before he will. [icon_lol2.gif]

Image

All sorts of pictures showing Ukrainian forces smiling near Russian border posts north of Kharkiv.

And, on the home front (well, for the three comrades it is)... there appears to be some indication of a soft and quiet mobilization happening in Russia. Anecdotal evidence suggests anyone with technical military experience is being called up and registered. (35 to 45 year olds).

It's something I'll be watching over the coming days.

Mikhail Khodaryonok, you might recognize him from previous Russian Media Monitor posts I've made here, never ceases to impress me and restore some of my hope. Here he is again throwing some more cold water on the sabre rattling pundits that only seem to want to inflame the situation.

It's a long one, but worth the watch...

... and I'll add, the fact this dialogue is allowed to happen on Channel one is significant.

Meanwhile, the Russian (short-bus) Special Military Operation continues clearing AT mines.

Typical warning: Graphic and stupid, okay perhaps more stupid than graphic...

*** Why didn't anyone tell me they managed to get Rutube back online? Jeez, I've been watching the regular news, instead of state approved truth all this time. That wasn't bad - eh? Only 4, 5 days to get it all back up and running. It'll probably take longer to replace the door on the server room. Speaking of which, when they do replace it, they should probably go with an old school lock and key. At least till they figure out the network security problems...

Last number for azovstal surrendering : 1800.

By the way, originally the number of troops in Mariupol was estimated at 20,000.

Do the math.

The number's the Ukrainian MoD puts out for Russian causalities are probably their own.
