As that putrid PooTin scrapes the barrel looking for fresh canon fodder (next he'll be lower the age of doing that down to 16yrs next) he's also pulling out of storage tanks that 1st saw service back in 1962 while experts reckon that Russian forces in Ukraine set to be exhausted by January 2023.

Doesn't he realise yet how his little war crime games are actually leaving his country open to invasion or internal regional insurrection?

[edit] Just another backfire effect to PooTin's plans as Germany to change constitution to enable $110 billion defense fund just making NATO even stronger.

[edit 2] Whoops, they've lost 1. That leaves 19.

So, the doctors are giving Putin 3 yrs to live. In my book that's 2yrs. 11 months too long

With America and the NATO countries, plus Ukraine, on one side, and Russia on the other, we appear to have two firm rivals.


I better choose to take part for just one here, because Russia could be an aggressor in a war noone really wants.

Just bad wording here, Michael Watson.


What?
Really, this is confusing.

Well, it's starting to look like the Ukrainian situation is loosing it's headline appeal. Its been a whole day without posts and there are fewer and fewer YouTube videos. Probably just what Putin was hoping for.

Another Russian general killed by Ukrainian forces - reports
Russian state media has confirmed the death of one of Moscow's top generals during heavy fighting in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region.
Maj Gen Roman Kutuzov was killed leading an assault on a Ukrainian settlement in the region, a reporter with the state-owned Rossiya 1 said.
Alexander Sladkov said Gen Kutuzov had been commanding troops from the self-declared Donetsk People's Republic.

That's after,
His death comes as rumours circulated on social media that a second senior officer, Lt Gen Roman Berdnikov, commander of the 29th Army, was also killed in fighting over the weekend. The BBC cannot independently verify the claims.

PooTin Loses Another Top Soldier as 'The Executioner' Killed by Sniper.

A Russian mercenary—who is believed to have played a role in the killing of prisoners of war and civilians—has become the latest top military figure from Vladimir Putin's forces to be killed in the Ukraine war.

Social media channels and Russian newspapers reported that Vladimir Andonov, 44, had been killed by a sniper in Ukraine's second city of Kharkiv.

"He died at night during reconnaissance of the area, along with his comrade, presumably at the hands of a sniper," said the Peleng 03 telegram channel on Sunday, in a post reported by the mass circulation Russian newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets....

Meanwhile, Vlad Pootin is out to starve the world if we don't give in to his 'demands'...


Ukraine war: EU blames Russia for food crisis prompting walkout
wrote:
Russia's UN ambassador has stormed out of a UN Security Council meeting after the European Council president blamed Russia's invasion of Ukraine for causing a global food crisis.

Charles Michel said Russia was using food supplies as a "stealth missile" ...

... "Mr Ambassador of the Russian Federation, let's be honest, the Kremlin is using food supplies as a stealth missile against developing countries," Mr Michel said during the Security Council meeting in New York.

"The dramatic consequences of Russia's war are spilling over across the globe, and this is driving up food prices, pushing people into poverty, and destabilising entire regions.

"Russia is solely responsible for this food crisis."

He added that he had seen for himself the millions of tons of grain stuck in the Ukrainian port of Odesa because of a naval blockade enforced by Russia...



This very definitely is Pootin's chosen war against us all.


Stay safe folks!

PooTin is really losing it now.

PooTin reveals fury at China in foul-mouthed tirade.

As Norway announces donation of howitzers to Ukraine.

Then there this opinion piece.

The Roots of Putin's Strategic Fiasco in Ukraine.

...Putin grossly miscalculated the responses of the West's leaders, as well as those of public opinion, China, Ukraine and even his own military capabilities. He has allowed his blind hatred of the West and of Ukraine to cloud his analytical prowess. Putin has single-handedly expanded NATO, to include Finland and Sweden, incentivized European cohesion, re-militarized Germany, destroyed the Russian economy, pushed Russia further into China's steel grip and most importantly, reinvigorated the Western democratic order after three decade of malaise.

Not bad for a former KGB lieutenant-colonel.
PooTin has certainly proved himself to be a delusional mental midget.

With rumours already flying over the Russian President’s health, it seems he could instead be killed by his own security services in a death that could be quietly covered up as simply a result of his reported ill health.
Should that happen, there is no indication that the war will end.

Not at all, but what other kind of Russian mobster do we wind up with next as the Russian mobsters will never willingly give up their power.

Well, we have gone three days without any posts about what's going on in the Ukraine. So the interest of the whole world dwindles.
