Well PooTin worst nightmare maybe coming true as he and his troops continue on committing their war crimes.

Prospect of Finland, Sweden joining NATO discussed at NATO meeting -U.S. official.

And then suffering a defeat in the U.N. after revealing Russian radio chatter was released.

UN ousts Russia from Human Rights Council; Germany reportedly intercepts chatter on atrocities: April 7 recap.

Meanwhile our 1st delivery of Bushmasters is in the air.

Australia sending 20 repainted and refitted Bushmaster armoured vehicles to Ukraine.

In the latter part of 1941, Intelligence warned of a Japanese attack on the U.S.
Scorn & disbelief was the result.
UNTIL it happened.

80 years later...
...in the latter part of 2021...
By early December, details of Russia's plans for a 175,000-strong invasion had appeared in the Washington Post.
In London, the intelligence - coming in from GCHQ and MI6 - was met with near-disbelief in some quarters. A common problem inside and outside government was that people simply could not believe a major land war could break out in Europe in the 21st Century.

Yeah it's looking more and more like a band of renegade thugs were turned loose in the Ukraine and not a professional army. Or more like a viking attack just a bunch of rape, pillaging and burning, just with modern toys instead of swords and axes.

Now we have PooTin threatening the U.S. when they can't even beat the Ukraine.

The Russian war machine is sputtering and there is nowhere to hide for Vladimir Putin as the country’s combat losses reach eye-watering levels.

But he has done Donny out of the v2.0 moniker while acting even crazier.

Putin’s bizarre claim Russia ‘saving’ Ukraine from West’s Nazi dictatorship.

He hasn't looked in a mirror of late has he? Then seeing as the warlord thingy turned out to be a flop PooTin has pulled an old general out of retirement.

Russia has appointed a general dubbed “the butcher of Syria” - because he allegedly committed “unspeakable war crimes” - to lead its war effort on the ground in Ukraine.

PooTin has also lost another high ranking officer.

Another Russian colonel killed in Ukrainian invasion.

He's lost a lot of them hasn't he, but then again his whole army doesn't seem to be the brightest.

Ukraine warns Russian troops may be surprised by 'deadly' Chernobyl ‘souvenirs’.

But is WWIII getting closer?

China makes semi-secret delivery of missiles to Serbia.

Nutjob says invasion will "achieve" noble aims
Yep, rape & murder.

Yep very noble of him.
The Russian president said talks with Ukraine had derailed because the Ukrainian side had made "fake claims" about war crimes and extra demands for security guarantees.

As PooTin continues his war crimes down in the Ukraine he's now turning his attention elsewhere, but considering how badly his army is performing can he afford to have 2 fronts?

Russia ‘seen moving military equipment towards Finland after warning country not to join NATO’.

Russia is moving military equipment including missiles systems towards its border with Finland, unconfirmed video appears to show.

Unverified footage appears to show defence missiles being driven along a road that leads to Finnish capital Helsinki.

The apparent escalation comes after Moscow warned Finland against joining NATO, with the traditionally neutral country saying it was considering applying to join the bloc.

Given Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine was largely linked to its ambitions to join NATO, Russia’s move to bring arms closer to its border with Finland could be a significant move.

Finland is preparing for a potentially historic decision “before midsummer” on whether to apply to join NATO as a deterrent against Russian aggression.

The Nordic nation of 5.5 million has traditionally been militarily non-aligned, in part to avoid provoking its eastern neighbour, with which it shares a 1,300 kilometre (830 mile) border.

But Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24 saw public support for joining NATO double from 30 to 60 per cent, according to a series of polls.

“Never underestimate the capacity of Finns to take rapid decisions when the world changes,” former Finnish prime minister Alexander Stubb told AFP.

Himself a long-time NATO advocate, Stubb now believes Finland making a membership application is “a foregone conclusion” as Finns re-evaluate their relationship with their neighbour....

Just another demoralising hit to PooTin's military might and his ego.

After over 13hrs since the reports started coming in about the Moskva you'd think that they'd have updated aerial/satellite pics of what went on up by now even if it's just an oil slick/flotsam on the sea.

[edit] Anyhow here's the list on what Joe's sending over to help.

And another country that's worried about PooTin and his bunch of war criminals being in their backyard.

Moldova claims Russian forces trying to recruit its citizens.

The Russian military is being accused of appealing to nearby countries to aid its advancement into Ukraine, as reports suggest Russia has been dealt heavy losses.

Moldova accused Russian forces of trying to recruit its citizens in the breakaway region of Transnistria, a strip of land that encompasses most of the Moldovan-Ukrainian border.

"Such actions do not promote peace for all of us, our fellow citizens, for our families. Such things are very dangerous, and they must be stopped,” Moldovan Foreign Minister Nicu Popescu said Thursday, declining to provide additional information, according to Reuters.

The Kremlin has yet to verify Moldova's claims.

A month ago, Moldova announced it was monitoring reports that Russian soldiers were on the ground in Transnistria, though the Kremlin has denied any military deployment there....

Sneaky way Ukraine distracted Russian warship Moskva.

Ukrainian forces used some of their newest missiles to blow up an ageing Soviet-era Russian warship in the biggest naval loss since Britain sunk the General Belgrano.

Slava-class missile cruiser Moskva was in service on-and-off for almost 40 years and is now the largest naval asset lost since World War 2, The Sunreports.

Drones are reported to have been used to harass the vessel and keep its air defences distracted before the missiles were fired from a hidden battery near Odessa.

At least two of the missiles are then reported to have struck the ship – causing a massive explosion and inferno as they are believed to have detonated one of Moskova’s exposed deckside missile tubes....
I wonder how PooTin feels about that, but the CIA think that they know.

The sinking of a Russian warship in the Black Sea has raised international alarm about PooTin's terrifying next steps.

With every new loss suffered by Russia, the world moves closer to the prospect of nuclear war.

According to the CIA, the sinking of the Russian warship in the Black Sea could be enough to tip President Vladimir Putin over the edge.

The world is watching closely for what Putin does next after the warship Mosvka was struck by a Ukrainian missile. The immediate aftermath involved the haunting sounds of air raid sirens blaring in every one of Ukraine’s regions at the same time.

CIA Director William Burns said Ukraine should be ready for retaliation on a new scale and for the war to be taken to another level. Speaking to students and faculty at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta on Friday, Burns said the potential for a nuclear strike is real.

“The last chapter in Putin’s war has yet to be written, as he grinds away in Ukraine,” Burns said.....

I really wish these "reporters" would stop invoking nuclear weapons until one actually gets used. Otherwise it's simply fearmongering for clicks.
Sigh...
