Now, why can't all our politicians be so immediately genuine and responsible?


Ukraine War: Zelensky adviser resigns over Dnipro remarks
wrote:
Ukrainian presidential adviser Oleksiy Arestovych has offered his resignation after suggesting a Russian missile which hit a building in Dnipro, killing 44 people, was shot down by Kyiv.

Mr Arestovych apologised and said he had made a "fundamental error"...

... The adviser is a well-known figure because of his daily updates on YouTube, watched by millions...

... Hours after Saturday's missile strike hit an apartment building in Dnipro, Mr Arestovych initially said it appeared that the Russian missile had fallen on the building after it was shot down by Ukrainian air defences. Ukraine said the building was hit by a Russian Kh-22 missile, which it does not have the capability to shoot down and is reportedly extremely inaccurate...

... "I offer my sincere apologies to the victims and their relatives, the residents of Dnipro and everyone who was deeply hurt by my prematurely erroneous version of the reason for the Russian missile striking a residential building," he wrote in a longer post on Telegram...



Very unfortunate in all respects.

Hopefully, Pootin and his Russia and Oligarchs will collapse sooner rather that after yet more continued deaths and atrocities later...


All in our deadly political world,

Pootin has decimated them to clear out those not totally behooved (behoven) to him...

That still leaves the remaining 90% cowed and supporting him for their luxuries and life...

Several Top Officials Fired Amid Corruption Crackdown in Ukraine

KYIV, Ukraine — Several top Ukrainian officials were fired on Tuesday, including the governors of several Ukrainian regions, amid a ballooning corruption scandal. The move marked the biggest upheaval in President Volodymyr Zelensky’s government since Russia’s invasion began 11 months ago.

Ukraine’s cabinet ministry, which announced the firings on the Telegram social messaging app, provided no details about the reason, but it followed reports that Ukraine’s military had agreed to pay inflated prices for food meant for Ukrainian troops.


Glad that Zelensky is cleaning house because possible corruption involving the misuse of support funds was an obstacle.

I think that Putin should get a clear message for being told.

Any ultimatum, and it only becomes a pretext or prelude for war, and not any desired.

Never tell for any part of nature it could be either.

Well, I think this is very telling:


Ukraine welcomes German tank move as 'first step'
wrote:
Ukraine has welcomed as a "first step" Germany's decision to send Leopard 2 tanks to aid in its fight against Russia's invasion.

Allies hailed the announcement as the "right decision"...

... Germany also allowed other countries, including Poland, to pass on their Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine's front line - which was restricted until now under export regulations.

US President Joe Biden's administration is also expected to announce plans on Wednesday to send at least 30 M1 Abrams tanks...


How long yet can Pootin remain blind to how he is making war against the entire rest of the world?

PooTin's war criminals are going to have to do some more running soon as Europe rains tanks and the U.S. actually lays a number down (but they'll take longer to get there).

In significant shift, Biden sending 31 Abrams tanks to Ukraine.

And along with those goes these.

Ukraine is getting a new heavy-duty armored vehicle to haul its damaged tanks off the battlefield.

So These are the tanks Ukraine will get from the U.S. and Europe as the Swiss finally realise that they're part of Europe.

Panel seeks to allow re-exports of Swiss weaponry to Ukraine.

We should also hear soon from France on their Leclerc tanks.

While PooTin's criminal war is not going to plan and 1 of his propaganda mouth pieces isn't very happy.

But it seems that PooTin's boys are more a hazard to themselves.

Though 1 wonders why hasn't this option being explored?

Challenger 1: The Tank Ukraine Really Needs?

...Why is NATO not offering to purchase some 200-400 recently retired Challenger 1 tanks from the Kingdom of Jordan, with all the spare parts that will come with them, and supply those to Ukraine, avoiding the logistics mess?

It would be far more cost-effective. This was the point of a recent comment in The Telegraph (Britain is sending the Ukrainians the wrong tanks), but it bears repeating.

The NATO tank donation program has turned into a hodgepodge, not only supplying three different tanks from three different nations, The M1 Abrams, the Challenger 2, and the Leopard 2

And to make matters even more confusing, different models of the Leopard are being sent to Ukraine that are substantially different in their maintenance and parts requirements.

While the Ukrainians can probably manage this logistics nightmare (one of the few countries that can), in the middle of the war, who needs the headache?...

PooTin's criminal war is coming at a huge cost to his canon fodder and war criminal.

Grim photos of dead Russian soldiers thawing out on frontline reveal big problem.

I wonder what the mothers of Russia would think if they were allowed to see what's going on.
