Right? How many dead Russians are on Putin's hands too? Maybe this is all to just depopulate as much of Ukraine as possible before corporations move in and buy up lands penny to the dollar. But I'm dark that way.

Russian billionaires did just gain $1 trillion of resources in Donbass.



Mearshimer is the world's smartest guy when the topic is Ukraine. Makes me wonder how Canada's dumbest person,
Melanie Joly became Minister of Foreign Affairs? Was it because she is so dumb, she'll do what she's told?
was she chosen - precisely because a war was going to happen, and they needed an idiot in control?
"Canada supports anyone who wishes to croak in Ukraine" - Melanie

Now see another opinion:
To be perfectly clear, this war is Putin’s war, and his choice alone. It’s a unilateral, unprovoked act of aggression that must not only be condemned in the strongest terms, but met with the strongest of responses.

BBC says tens of thousands of Ukrainians have died and Zelensky needs hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians to replace them. Yes. BBC is just that dumb.

John Mearshimer is the worlds "smartest guy when the topic is Ukraine". He also wrote, at length, how Ukraine should develop and maintain a nuclear arsenal to defend itself against Russia.

So Thinktank, which is it? Should Ukraine capitulate and let the Russian oligarchs steal Ukrainian resources and human potential, or should Ukraine have nuclear weapons to deter such a move?

Seems the Ukrainians are doing okay with those artillery pieces we sent them.

In other news, Russia is seen sending decommissioned T-80 Tanks into the LPR region.

Things are heating up in the Black Sea, with a Ukrainian strike on a Russian oil platform and several reports of explosions on Snake island again. Apparently big movement out of Sevastopol heading towards Odesa.

Meanwhile, Russian apologists prepare for another day of justifying the invasion of Ukraine...

Whoa, oil platform.

That's a strange choice to bombard something that has no military value and has only civilians working there...Big accomplishment.

Is that article not 30 years old? Kind of moot at this point.

You want USA to shoot 70 people, burn several others,
Overthrow Ukraine's president
spend $5 billion to corrupt Ukraine's government (and build secret USA biolabs)
Murder 15,000 Russian speaking Ukrainians in Donbass
go berzerk and blow up the Donetsk airport and their houses and continue a genocide for eight years
and finally, put a clown as president that promises to get nuclear weapons not to protect Ukraine from anything
but to destroy Russia for USA warmongers benefit.

Ukraine should always be neutral to Russia, considering 1/3 of them are Russians. You wouldn't make French
illegal in Canada and start murdering the French speakers would you?

Why would a country that pays pensioners $71.00/ month - not enough to properly feed a dog in Canada,
want nuclear weapons for USAs benefit? And why would they want the biggest army in Europe unless someone (the Yanks)
was planning a slaughter?

Beats spending a couple million to destroy an autobody repair shop (which the Russians did with a cruise missile), but is similar to hitting a train platform (which the Russians did with a cruise missile). So there is that.

Russian "precision guided munitions" always manage to hit to the ground, most times they even explode after doing so.

Well, I can kinda see those - repair shops can repair equipment and railroad infrastructure moves all the supplies to the front lines.

Gas platform? Seems a bit desperate just to hit something...

Good shooting !

Perhaps the GPS guided 155mm shells the west has provided?

This war Russia started is going to be a long drawn out affair. When Russia suffers untenable casualties and or Putin is in the ground, Russia might pack up.
Interesting article in Economist mag regarding the freezing of Russian assets and any confiscation of assets( money) for the rebuilding of Ukraine.

'cept, the oil platform was also supplying oil to the Russian military effort in Ukraine and was actively working as electronic warfare station. Seems the Russians aren't having much success in using Snake Island for those purposes. Spasatel Vasily Bekh (a Russian Tug) was successfully demilitarized last week while reportedly transporting a SAM system to the island. It currently rests at the bottom of the ocean and the it appears the Russians could have used that SAM system last night, but instead, multiple explosions on the island.

Well, with all those super successful attacks and boatloads of supplies I'm sure they'll push back the Russian army back where they came from in no time.
