I've seen several reports that say the Ukrainian commanders say they didn't bomb that Russian oil storage facility.

Could it be a Putin ploy to try and convince the Russian people that the Ukrainians are attempting to destroy their country?

There's been reports of some very sick Russian troops from around Chernobyl just lately and now there is a report of the 1st fatality of their stupidity.

Russian soldier ‘DIES from radiation poisoning’ after Vlad’s troops dug trenches at Chernobyl before fleeing to Belarus.

I wonder if we'll ever know the actual number of Russian troops that were in that exclusion zone.

...and does Vlad care about them?
From what I've read and heard many of the Russian troops were/are shocked by the fact that the Ukrainians have the timerity to shoot at them, having been told they would be welcomed with open arms.

The cost of PooTin's criminal war. WARNING: Graphic content.

Bodies litter the streets as Russian forces pull back from Kyiv.

The response.

Ukrainian President’s grim warning to Russian soldiers as Vladimir Putin turns to desperate tactic.

...In an interview with Fox News, Mr Zelensky would not be drawn on whether Ukraine was behind the helicopter attack.

“I’m sorry, I do not discuss any of my orders as commander in chief,” he told the program.
And then there's Dmitry Rogozin (the ISS doesn't fly over Russia), head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, opens his mouth again.

Russia Will End Cooperation on International Space Station Citing Sanctions.

Meanwhile the Ukraine is becoming the graveyard of Russian troops, tanks, APV's and support equipment as the modern weapons systems that Ukraine foot solders have access to reek havoc.

But is WWIII in the brewing?

The US has been pressing China not to support Russia – but Vladimir Putin has other, grander, plans, and the signs from Beijing are ominous.

Should tell that I condemn Putin like most or all others, except one thing.

Except for a brutal civil war, Europe of today should be a cleaning house for that of in order, so here forgotten or just missed.

Only the words I wish to say here, and ask for it to not be moved this time.

Well those reports put paid to Poo tin's claim " to Denazify Ukraine"
Russia is very adept of blaming others for their actions & in fact have a precedent for doing so,
One only has to research "Katyn Wood".
The Polish Army officer class was representative of the multi-ethnic Polish state; the murdered included ethnic Poles, Ukrainians, Belarusians, and Jews.
Obvious who the real Nazis are.

PooTin has lost a customer.

Lithuania cuts off Russian gas imports, urges EU to do same.

Lithuania says it has cut itself off entirely of gas imports from Russia, apparently becoming the first of the European Union's 27 nations using Russian gas to break its energy dependence upon Moscow.

“Seeking full energy independence from Russian gas, in response to Russia’s energy blackmail in Europe and the war in Ukraine, Lithuania has completely abandoned Russian gas,” Lithuania’s energy ministry said in a statement late Saturday, adding that the measure took effect in the beginning of April.

Lithuania managed to reduce imports of Russian gas to zero on Saturday, a move seen a milestone in achieving energy independence in the former Soviet republic of 2.8 million, the ministry said.

“We are the first EU country among Gazprom’s supply countries to gain independence from Russian gas supplies, and this is the result of a multi-year coherent energy policy and timely infrastructure decisions,” Minister of Energy Dainius Kreivys said....
I bet that's another entry on PooTin's hit list.

He'll have to convince Lithuania how "unnecessary" it is to be a post-USSR NATO member first. :^)
(That argument has become somewhat more difficult to make recently for some reason... hmm...)

Update on post 2097050
Shame that too many forget the past.
Similar massacres to the one reported in the town of Bucha, outside Kyiv, could be "widespread" in areas held by Russian forces, Jack Watling from UK defence and security think tank Rusi tells BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Ukraine has accused Russia of a "deliberate massacre" in Bucha after reporters found at least 20 bodies strewn in the streets.
Russia calls these claims war "propaganda".
"This isn't a one-off atrocity. This is very much how the Russians conduct anti-partisan warfare", Jack says.

"I think in those areas where the Russians have seized territory, we are going to discover a significant number of acts like this."
"The intent of those atrocities will be the same, which is to retaliate against the population for the audacity to resist. I think this is going to be very widespread."
"They did the same thing in Afghanistan. They did the same thing in Chechnya and in the Second World War. This is a doctrine of anti-partisan warfare, which is about collective punishment."

Just like the Nazis in WWII Germany the Russian leadership is believing their own propaganda.

As PooTin's army continues to commit was crimes and the west continues to supply the Ukraine with most of what they need to fend of PooTin's war criminals.

Just ask and you shall receive Bushmasters.
Not to be outdone by an upstart colony? :-D

UK drawing up plans to send armoured vehicles to Ukraine.

Anyhow, give them want ever they need to get rid of the mongrels I say. ;-)
