These are desperate times indeed to even be discussing the differences between RPGs, shelling, and missile attacks...

Explosive in RPG ounces
Explosive in a shell a few pounds
Explosive in a missile fifty pounds
Explosive in a bomb a hundred to several thousand pounds

It now looks like that moronic dictator Aleksander Lukashenko is going to have Belarus join in on the fray. :-(

There are also reports that the Ukrainian built Antonov An-225 "Mriya" was destroyed while on the ground being serviced. :-O

Meanwhile it's also being reported that Putin has his nuke squad on alert now. :-O

Regardless of who says or does what, this is not going to end well for all involved.

Russian rouble plunges after new sanctions announced
wrote:
The rouble has slumped by as much as 40% against the dollar, after Western nations announced new sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine...

... The assets of Russia's central bank will also be frozen, limiting the country's ability to access its overseas reserves...

... Last week, Moody's said it was reviewing Russian bonds to possibly downgrade them to '"junk", which would put Russia in a league of riskier countries that usually have to pay more to borrow. Rival credit ratings agency S&P has already lowered the country to junk status...

... At the weekend, Russia's central bank issued an appeal for calm amid fears that the new financial sanctions could spark a run on its banks...



That is going to directly hurt Russia.

Is that enough to dethrone Putin and his madness?

There are now reports coming out of Russia that ordinary Russians have been making a run on ATM's and banks leading to the beginning of a cash shortage.

Now that is an interesting development. If it spreads the Duma just will have to act against the oligarchs. I do note that supreme leader Putin made all the oligarchs come to the mountain with him so they couldn't escape. That Putin thought they might want to flee says he realized the gamble he was taking.

This UKraine 'Crisis' could Embolden China to Revamp their Invasion 'Plans' to cause them to be Quicker and More Brutal, or
Hopefully to Back Off Entirely due to da WORLDs Reaction to War in Ukraine.

Let's Hope Citizens in China would/Will React with Equal Condemnation to their Leaders as are Citizens of Russia.

If there can be GOoD from War - Maybe China will Rethink and Other Places in World where Conflict and Bad Treatment of Citizens continues will Lessen and Halt Atrocities.

Yep

May we All have a METAMORPHOSIS. REASON. GOoD JUDGEMENT and LOVE and ORDER!!!!!

This is getting seriously serious:

Russian Vodka is being withdrawn from supermarket and shop shelves.


Russia may well yet suffer a lot more costly sanctions from the people of the world and from world opinion.

Here's hoping Putin will be deposed very soon to bring some good sense back to the world.


Best wishes and success to Ukraine.

Stay safe folks!

Sten I mostly agree with your position on pay walls but I do gladly subscribe to my local newspaper. I feel local news is important and needs to be supported.

Putin's Iron Firewall clamps down:


Russia is also threatening to ban Wikipedia for an article called “Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022” because of “illegally disseminated information” about Russian military and Ukrainian civilian casualties, as well as bank runs pic.twitter.com/ZsI7iv3b9s

I still can't help but wonder what it is that the Ukraine has that Putin so desperately wants, or is it just the need to be the big bully on the block. He is ruining Russia's economic condition including his own and all his cronies.

Yes, there's a lot of old strategic U.S.S.R. infrastructure still left in the Ukraine.
