BBC News showing Funerals of Russian soldiers today in russia! Our press were telling us that they were all being cremated on the battle field ?! I do also think that the West were quite annoyed that the female reporter who stormed the russian news channel broadcast wasnt sent to siberia for 15yrs or shot, questioned for 14 hrs and fined £200 made russia look quite lawfull. Im 100% behind the ukrainians but there is an awful lot of lies and tall stories being told.

The £200 isn't for holding the placard live on the News it's for the video she made beforehand. Apparently the Russians will charge for the serious stuff when the interest in her has died down a bit.

Putin is not known for his compassionate nature, let's hope she's ok.

Latest analysis of the Putin speech via USA based experts. Expect Putin to escalate the war in a major way. As bombing civilian areas hasn't worked he may be about to try something desperate. I thought we had until next week for that so it means the Russian army is in serious trouble.
What we thinking, nukes? Chemical weapons?

Comments from a retired US General on YouTube described the russians more like isis that a modern army.
 
Sort of wondered if russian negotiators are genuinely trying to get a deal whereas putin couldn't care less
The Russian diplomatic corps was horrified by the war. Allegedly. Along with senior FSB and Central Bank officials. I'm just listening to the Finnish intelligence analysis via the missus translation services. Russia is weak. Far weaker than even Finland realised. Putin only gets good news. The Russian military reserve had all its training cash stolen. Tank regiments reported strength 150 T80 etc actual strength 50.

Performance of the infantry appears to be abysmal.

Recently I read an article about how russian military 2nd line logistics gas been contracted out to a civilian company. Corruption and embezzlement very much the order of the day there.

Looks like it might be the moment of truth then. If he tells them to push the button to hit ukraine will or won't they push it🤔

Maybe (hopefully) if the loony does now try to use chemical or theatre nuclear weapons, it will trigger some sort of internal coup to overthrow him...?

Possibly just me whistling in the dark; but even all his toadies and yes men will have extended families etc and realise that once he starts letting off even limited nuclear strikes, then Russia also stands to eventually be wiped out.

We can only hope.

I believe china is very keen for this not to escalate into a wider conflict so may tell him to calm down if things start getting really bad.

However is putin going to listen to them if he is prepared to go out in a blaze of so called glory?

And a few including the usual suspects on here label Zelenskyy a clown and say the Ukrainian plight is self inflicted .

Wrong

I am so proud that they're basically standing up for themselves and for all of us in the free world
That should be enough for any country against Russia to get together and say stop or else
and have the balls to stand behind it, never mind the threat of nuclear
at the moment he is the only world leader as the rest are sh!t scared of him

Love that meme doing the rounds about things you can see from space; Nile river, great wall of China, Grand Canyon and Zelenskyy's balls
 
I just remembered another of my mate's dad's tank stories from Korea. The crews used to sleep under their Churchills for protection, until one night the ground thawed and one of the tanks sank up to its belly. No one ever tried that again.:(

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...
