Moscow's answer to the demise of Bozo the Clown.
President Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Mr Johnson "really does not like us - and we [do not like] him either".
He said he hoped "more professional people" who could "make decisions through dialogue" would take over in London.
Hilarious.
Moscow's glee

I actually have no doubt he would if I posed even a modicum of a threat to him.

As the Ukraine starts to hit PooTin's war criminals with western supplied goods PooTin has to pull out and try to repurpose very old equipment and arms.

Russia Resorting to Soviet-Era Anti-Aircraft Missiles to Hit Land Targets.

And has to look elsewhere for arms.

Iran plans to supply Russia with drones, US warns.

Meanwhile PooTin and Lukashenko Planning 'Joint Response' to Lithuania Blockade.

Now that could start a war with NATO, but can PooTin afford that with him running out of equipment and solders?

Russian military equipment on show in Prague
wrote:
Russian military equipment captured by the Ukrainian armed forces has gone on display in the Czech capital, Prague.

The display of war trophies, which includes a damaged T-90 tank, Buk air defence system and Msta howitzer, was unveiled on Letna Plain, a large open space a short distance from Prague Castle.

"This exhibition proves how vital support from partner countries is to us,"...


Lego pull out of Russia 'indefinitely'
wrote:
... The firm stopped delivering products to Russia in March following the invasion of Ukraine, but its shops remained open as most rival retailers pulled out.

Lego said it would now end its partnership with Inventive Retail Group which runs 81 shops on Lego's behalf...



Unfortunately, Putin's deadly game is in the real world against real people.

Report that another Russian General, the 12th, has been killed in Ukraine.
A major general and up to a dozen Russian senior officers have been killed in the latest wave of strikes by Western precision weapons that have crippled Russian logistics.

Major General Artyom Nasbulin, the chief of staff of the 22nd Army Corps, was killed in a Himars rocket strike on a command post near Kherson, said Sergei Bratchuk, a spokesman for the Odesa region.

Yet another Pootin atrocity.


We all should do our best part to bring the Pootin deadly stupidity to an end, sooner.

You can help Ukraine. Do this today.

As PooTin's war criminal/terrorist actions continue against Ukrainian citizens the standards continue to drop in the Russian military as PooTin's Private Army Lowers Recruiting Standards After Heavy Losses.

It certainly might explain the Ukraine's claim that Russia Accidentally Shoots Down Their Own $36M Su-34 Bomber.

While PooTin's Chechen "war lord" buddy is still Waiting for Order to Smash West to 'Smithereens' (I'm starting to think that this fellow is just nothing but a total B.S. artist and wouldn't get his designer boots dirty).

Looks like with a little help from their friends in a conventional war (no nukes) the Ukrainians can go toe to toe with Russia.

As PooTin's war criminals continue to bomb civilians the Ukraine and Russia sign deal to allow grain export as the Ukraine's frontline farmers toil on amid explosions.

Meanwhile the U.S. discussing America-made fighter jets for Ukraine.

But by all other reports Ukrainian forces are currently inflicting heavy casualties on PooTin's war criminals ATM.

As PooTin's criminal war enters its 5th month things arn't going so well for the invaders these days.

Ukrainian Troops Continue to Strike Russian Ammo Depots.

West's modern weapons stifle Russia's firepower.

Ukraine stepping up bid to retake Kherson.

Russian Casualties in Ukraine Surpass 75,000: U.S. Intelligence.

Russian Military Spotted Retreating From Ukraine Counter-Offensive.

And if this is true then it really shows that Russian war criminals don't have a clue.

Russia Accidentally Shoots Down Its Own Helicopter.

While it also seems that PooTin is finding it very hard now to find new war criminals & cannon fodder for his war.

Russia Requests One Volunteer From Every Village Join New Battalion.

Meanwhile US F-22 Raptors are on their way to Poland to boost NATO's air shield against Russian threats as PooTin May Be Saving Aerial Strength for Attacks on NATO.

All for the madness of crazy dictators.

HIMARS are giving PooTin nightmares these days.

Two of Putin's top Russian pilots were killed by US-supplied HIMARS.

Russia 'Running Out of Steam,' 'Growing Desperate' in Ukraine War.

As the last bridge into Kherson is taken out cutting off Russian war criminals and their supply lines.

Video Appears To Show Key Bridge Destroyed by Ukraine.

While there's plenty of online videos showing how well Russian war criminals can run is PooTin planning on doing the same? Is that why he's be jaunting about visiting allies?

New reports have ignited speculation that Vladimir Putin has a plan to flee Russia. There are only so many places he could go.

For a curious aside...

There are a few rumours being circulated that PooTin's sojourn abroad is testing the politics for his own escape from Russia...


However... How many tiers of his henchmen need to collapse and flee with him?

If we take the end of WW2 in Europe as a model... After AH's suicide in his bunker in Berlin there were still a fair number of "inner circle" henchmen lurking around, some fled the scene only to appear years later, others fled and were captured within a couple of months, some just decided the risk of capture was more than they could face and followed their leader in partaking in self extinguishment. The remaining few went for various forms of "last man standing" for a few more weeks.
I'm not sure it's a perfect model, but I suspect it isn't a bad one either.
