PooTin continues his war crimes bombing civilians and civilian infrastructure he's had to put a heavy guard on his recruitment offices.

Russian shelling cuts external power to Ukraine nuclear plant (again).

I wonder how many PooTin ordered.

Sadly more than enough have hit their civilian targets.

It's not just humans that PooTin has it in for.

PooTin's War May Have Killed up to 50,000 Dolphins in Black Sea.

While Russia accused of sabotaging city's water supply and war criminals get more help from Iran as [url=]Russian Infantry Getting Iran Upgrade Amid Reports of Gear Shortages[/url].

And if things couldn't get worse for those back at home.

But all in all things are not going PooTin's way.

Another 30 Bushmasters are on their way to Ukraine while 70 military personnel head to the UK to train Ukrainians.

Get that up ya PooTin.

And then there's PooTin's Chechen warlord buddy who talks big, but he just can't seem to find his way to the front for all his talk.

Chechen warlord declares Ukraine war a ‘Big Jihad’ and calls on Muslims to fight for Russia.

Sounds like PooTin is getting ready to use biological weapons now?

Russia asks UN Security Council to investigate U.S. for developing biological weapons in Ukraine.

He usually likes to blame someone else before he does this stuff. :-(

Where was PooTin's missile going to land if the Ukraine didn't shoot it down?

Moldova Says Russian Missile Downed by Ukraine Lands in Village.

And even though the Ukraine Shoots Down 44 Russian Missiles in One Morning they're causing Ukraine Energy Giant to Run Out of Equipment to Fix Power Outages.

PooTin and his terrorist war criminals have a lot to answer for.

Purposely destroying the electrical grid before winter so that civilians freeze to death is certainly one item. :^(

Well that's his plan, but weather experts are leaning towards a warmer than usual winter for the region I've heard.

In that case Puking could be in for a rather sticky few months.....
Warmer weather will mean that the ground isn't frozen as solid as it would be normally, thus won't be able to support his tanks, and his tanks then won't be able to roam across the countryside in the manner he hopes,, they will be more constrained to the roads and we all know what happens to columns of Russian tanks on road.....

Meanwhile the U.S. privately asks Ukraine to show Russia it's open to talks, but I wouldn't until all of PooTin's war criminals have left the country.

Well, you can always be open to talks for an unconditional Russian surrender. After all the USA did that with Japan.

I am wondering if this dialog is starting in case the Republicans end up with a majority in the House and/or Senate next week. Unfortunately it has gotten so polarized that I don't doubt there will be an impetus to cut off funding to Ukraine, disregarding that it's the right thing to do regardless of "sides", just because the Democrats are doing it. There's been a major increase in Russian government social media "presence" recently prior to the midterms and they are pushing to politicize any assistance, for obvious reasons.

Well it was telegraphed and now PooTin has thrown out the red flag while again blaming others for his own actions.

Russia claims Ukraine hit dam near Kherson with US missiles.

All to cut power and water from a city that his drunken war criminals are running from.

Russian-occupied Kherson loses power after alleged ‘sabotage’ (of the PooTin type).

While his drunken war criminals are destroying civilian ships on river in southern standoff.

As PooTin keeps Firing Commanders to Deflect Blame From from his own incompetence.

Meanwhile a Russian Pundit Says Men Over 40 Too Damaged by 'Constant' Drinking To Fight though I've seen plenty of vision of much younger piss-heads about.

Thanks for that little lot...

Russia (Stalin?) has a nasty history of blowing dams and of a "Scorched Earth" policy of blind destruction. Nasty.


Meanwhile, two warlords in making make ever yet more noise?...

Sadly:

The Red Army troops dynamited the ... Dneprostroi Dam ...

Dnieper Dam Began Operation (1932)

Very many people died, needlessly, that day...

All this speculation about that Nova Kakhovka dam.

Can someone tell me what weapons can Ukraine fire that could blow the dam up?
They were almost certainly firing at the bridges that are at the same location. They have done it before, https://meduza.io/en/news/2022/08/11/ukraine-strikes-crucial-bridge-in-nova-kakhovka dated August 10, 2022 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7MVnYVcIFQ

And I don't think the Russians are going to blow it. Below the dam it is the eastern (Russian) side of the Dnieper river that is low lying and would be the most at threat from the billions of gallons released. And at the moment the Russians are building many defensive lines there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idWu2NWI-rQ at 32 minutes.
So why would the Russians blow the dam that would just flood these defenses.
