The war in Ukraine...

Yep, and once Turkey has been bribed seen reason, there will be two more members!

Turkey and the Middle East need to be approached to agree on oil and gas pipelines. If they cooperate then Europe could fudge Russia off forever. There is shed loads of natural gas in the Middle East that is stuck where it is.

What would help is Israel being less belligerent and more cooperative.

That's true this time, but sometimes late is as much good as never. Let's hope that now it's started to flow, it won't stop.


And that's only going to continue; reports of Russia 'recruiting' a tithe of border guards now... if this carries on they'll either have to start sending their police or begin drafting the general population. Either of those would have a good chance of leading to significant domestic problems for Putin - increased crime and general unrest.
surly its better to have kit with people who can use it properly ,as we now know ,alot of trained ukrainians with big boys weapons are arriving home

Yes, it is, as I have written above. But there is an awful lot of kit than can be used with minimal specialist training, that was desperately needed, and that could have been sent nigh on immediately... but wasn't.

Well, the largest oil refinery in Southern Russia has been set ablaze by a drone strike... estimates are that this was providing about 40% of the fuel for the Russian war in Ukraine, as well as a hell of a lot for the South of Russia as a whole.

Hope they managed to get the cracker. It certainly looked very close and very well targeted.

Red diesel £3.00/litre in a months time then. :(

Possibly / Probably. Yesterday I listened to a Kansas State University extensification serve webinar of the current situation. One speaker discussed USA fert and fuel price. Very illuminating. Particularly the reference to the knife edge lack of refining capacity in USA due to no investment in new plant for several years. His concern was a Hurricane hitting the wrong place along the Texas / Louisiana coast knocking out a major refinery.

Greece, Spain and Portugal all joined as democracies, which countries do you write of?
joined Yes but that doesnt mean that they cared about that once they became dictatorships maybe they even preferred it in the case of greece.
Didnt stop them from allying with facist spain in Korea or their friend pinochet in Chile.
As soon as it fits their need the requirement of being democratic gets ignored so it seems.

This is pretty interesting. I am sure Russia have enough ammo for the standard weapons to last for 10 wars. So what is this? Shorter transports? Odd types of ammo, but then we would not see "great amounts"?


Railway workers in Belarus reporting that ammunition depots in the country are being emptied and sent into Russia. The amounts are so great that all railway workers are being forced to assist in loading.

There is a slight chance corrupt generals have sold all the ammo to 3rd world conflict zones.

I have a feeling that the fact that the BBC have now pretty much stopped being Ukraines publicity machine means the war is not going so well for Ukraine, too many other more important news items to report on these days in their opinion it seems.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.

Discussion with Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) officers confirmed the site...
