Ahhhh, AN-225. The product of the communist past - just like anything of value in Ukraine - their power plants, electrical grid, manufacturing, and a large part of Ukraine's territories that were given to them by dang communists. Incuding nuclear weapons that they're so rear-end-hurt about giving up - like they had a choice.

So, all the strikes that are happening and levelling all of it for the last two months are nothing but a campaign of de-communization which is something the Ukrainian govt has been trying to achieve. Russia is just helping them. They should be praised :biggrin: [icon_lol2.gif]

I mean, if they hate communism so much they should also give up everything communism created for them, right? It's only logical.

It's a shame though, AN-225 was a beautiful plane, I saw it take off in Berlin once.

Not sure what you're going on about.
The poster mentioned that "Bear" was a magnificent aircraft.
I thought Antonov An-225 Mriya was a beautiful aircraft as well.

They managed to scratch one, but on the same day had dozens of targets bombed all across the country. Good deal, I guess. If you're heavily snorting cocaine like Zelensky does, you can even call it even :)

Just like the Crimea bridge that they damaged and the one that has been fixed by now (less than 2 months), but their entire country is being bombed.

Hope it was worth it :up:

Someone tell me what kind of criminals bomb the newest airport in their own country?


Canada and USA sent $billions to the criminals in Ukraine who bombed their own airport and killed
14,000 of their own people.

USA (+Canada) warmongers started the war in Ukraine in 2014.

WHEN WILL WESTERN WAR PIGS WIND THIS UKRAINIAN GENOCIDE DOWN?????????????

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.

This Donetsk Airport, in Ukraine? The one being attacked by Russian back rebels, led by former FSB agent Igor Girkin and being shelled by "Motorola" in this video from 2014?

Yes, we probably should have done more to protect Ukrainian sovereignty and put a lid on Russian imperialism back then, but as Obama said at the time, "it is complicated".

Not so complicated now, but you're right, the Russian backed rebels totally destroyed a nice airport. "Motorola" lost his head in an elevator explosion after MH-17's downing and Igor Girkin just recently crawled out of his hole and made his way back to Moscow.

For those cheering on this next phase of attacking Russian Nuclear Airbases.

Russia will now escalate to targeting weapons before they enter Ukraine.

What would the US do if the Iraqi army started hitting airbases in Ohio?

Same "illegal" invasion same home soil attack.

It may well end up in a nuclear conflagration as the weapons arriving to Ukraine are coming from NATO countries.

We all know, or should do, that an attack on one NATO country is an attack on all, Article 5 ?
Russia will soon realize that NATO would wipe Putin's backside, even if he didn't fall down stairs, in a conventional confrontation. It goes nuclear, we can only assume.
This war that Poo-tin started could get ugly before long, or more ugly.
Anyway, definitely a black eye for the Russian war machine. They keep shooting missiles at Ukraine from those aircraft, I suspect there will be accidents at Russian airfields.
Too many Russians smoke evidently. : "Ukraine never publicly acknowledges responsibility for attacks inside Russia. Asked about the strikes, Defence Minister Oleskiy Reznikov repeated a longstanding joke blaming carelessness with cigarettes. "Very often Russians smoke in places where it's forbidden to smoke," he said."

The US started this by insisting that Ukraine become part of NATO.

Russia said it was a direct threat to them. They were 100% right.

Now US is calling for "the end of Russia". Exactly what Putin said would happen.

The home soil of Russia is now being attacked. Russia will use their nukes before they let the US regime change them. That means we all die and the world ends so clue-the-heck in.
Anyway, definitely a black eye for the Russian war machine.
Wait for the retaliation.

What happened the last time Ukraine attacked Russian soil?

Ukraine lost their entire energy grid.

Nope, Russia started this as they wanted Ukraine to be under the Russian sphere of influence. Zelenski does not want any part of Russia, he was leaning west unlike previous Ukrainian governments.

They are paranoid little men. The Baltic states are on the Russian border as well but prior to them being accepted into NATO, Russia never invaded. Russia is 100% wrong. Ukraine had absolutely no intention to "invade" Russia and Ukraine would continue to purchase gas and other commodities, at market rates if they were accepted into the European Union as was Ukraine's desire.

Now you're being silly. Genghis Kahn was the only one to defeat Russia, such as it was back then.

The home soil of an independent, soverghn nation is being attacked( by Russia) and has been since February. Not the other way around, right..we should all agree to that. They are fighting back as it should be apparent to Russia by now that Ukraine have no intention to come under Russian sphere of influence, (code for corruption) The west, by proxy is helping Ukraine maintain their independence and ability to choose their own destiny.
Off topic, but the same will likely happen if China tries to take independent, democratic, soverghn Taiwan by force.

Nope, neutral.

They can be anything they just can't be Uncle Sam's little arm's depot.

Now they' ll be dust and US arms manufacturers will get rich and we all might die.

Ukraine tried to say no to NATO and the US regime changed them.

Ukraine has zero independance.

They can't do anything without permission from Washington.

Russia "said" a lot of things. They also said they were not going to invade ukraine,and then they did.
They said they wanted to "liberate" ukraine, they didn't.

NATO said Russia had nothing to fear as they expanded multiple times right to the Russian border.

Now Joe Biden is calling for "the end of Russia".

Lots of BS.

Lots of BS.
If he is (I don't know that, but let's say that), could it be because Russia has invaded a peaceful country and bombed the hell out of its civilians and soldiers for the last 9 months?
If the original plan was for 10 day take over of Ukraine, then just like fish or visiting relatives, after 10 days.......
