It's getting to look more like PooTin has been back to the poisons cabinet again.

As if PooTin doesn't have his hand full with his criminal war in the Ukraine does he really want to start another using a fake tank as an excuse?

A replica tank – not even a real one – is causing tension in a European country which Putin’s cronies have waded into talking darkly of “war”.

Estonia is a NATO member since 2004. Good luck with that, Pooty Poot.

Well it could be that crazy PooTin is just crazy enough to want a war with NATO with Latvia now on his hit list.

Removing a stuffed and mounted tank?
Well Pukin is upset because it is going and may have been "mistaken" for a real threat to his armed forces. So now he wants to attack because his list of non-military targets has been reduced.......
Perhaps he wants to go down in history as the man who destroyed the USSRRussian armed forces from within - he's doing a pretty good job at it in Ukraine, but obviously the destruction isn't going fast enough.

The BBC version of this story, Darya Dugina: Daughter of Putin ally killed in Moscow blast, makes much of questioning the intended target of this presumed bomb:

The pair were due to travel back from the event on Saturday evening in the same car before Mr Dugin reportedly made a decision at the last minute to travel separately from his daughter.

PooTin sticks to his usual course with critics.

Head of Russia’s biggest private oil producer, who criticised the war in Ukraine, dies after ‘falling out of hospital window’.

I wonder how many of PooTin's thugs helped him out.

PooTin carries on a lot like Donny when he doesn't get his own way.

A European energy crisis looms as Russian giant Gazprom confirms it will continue to suspend the exportation of gas to Europe.Grown men and their childish hissy fits.

If this story is true then it is a very sad indictment of the state of Russian industry...
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-62804825
So, after six months of fighting in someone else's back yard Russia is running out of arms and ammunition and having to scrounge both from a notably smaller and poorer neighbour. (And to think that during WW2 Russia was able to produce tanks, guns, aircraft etc. in sufficient fight all the way too Berlin....)

Two basics of going deciding to war :- Make sure you know your enemy's strength, and make sure you have enough arms & ammunition. To me Russia failed to know the strengths of Ukraine and certainly didn't have enough arms an ammunition available. They assumed that Ukraine would crumble in days, and only really had enough arms and ammunition to keep going for a few weeks. Perhaps Puking should take a hard look at those who advised him that Ukraine would crumble and that Russia had sufficient arms and ammunition as they were so wrong.

There have been reports for a few months now that arms and munition factories have been closed down due to lack of supplies and those workers stood down being pressured into signing up to be cannon fodder. :-)

Things maybe getting worse back at home for PooTin.

Russian Officials Propose Overthrowing Putin, Charging Him With Treason.

But then again PooTin does like poisons, open windows and apparent suicides.

An 'interesting' move...

Here's hoping the politics works out to stop further bloodshed.

Was it a stroke, or just more of PooTin's "cleansing"?

Putin Ally Dies 'of Stroke' in Russia's Far East.

And then there's this turn up for the books, is this a 1st? (take note Donny)

Russia Election Winner Says Vote Was Rigged, Refuses to Accept Victory.

But it also may get her onto PooTin's "special" list as well.

Meanwhile, is PooTin's criminal actions in the Ukraine causing other problems?

Mired in Ukraine, Russia Sees Clashes Involving Ex-Soviet Sphere Allies.

Is the Russia-led Collective Security Treaty Organization coming apart?

Four reasons Belarus isn’t likely to send troops to Ukraine.
