In Energodar, the invaders started throwing grenades and shooting at peaceful Ukrainian protesters. There are wounded.
They are standing flags flying blocking the road to the nuclear power station and singing the national anthem as Russians are firing Grenades and weapons into them

These are the Ukrainians blocking the road peacefully


Ukrainians keep on singing national anthem while being shot! They're fearless! On the 30th second you can see a leg of an innocent man being torn off by a grenade thrown by russist! What kind of creature you have to be to perform such actions???
I won’t post the link unless requested, there is another of troops opening up on a civilian car and the son seeing his father killed, the poor dog is hit to and the sound is terrible, the son films it all including his father on the road from behind the car, a later clip by those that found them, the son and fathers bodies have been dumped in the ditch, one dead dog is halfway out of the car and another dog is guarding the bodies

Only partially correct. Some of the legionnaires were on leave, many were not, but none had permission to leave France. Many matters ( no travel outside France without permission, no cars, no renting apartments ) are tightly regulated for the initial contract ( five years ?) There are approx 700 Ukranians out of 9 000 legionnaires, so a significant proportion.

"According to France 24 Macron is putting the french economy first and talking to Putin."

I'm unsure what is being referred to, but that would be particularly sensitive at the moment with France currently holding the presidency of the European Council, as well as this being the last four weeks of the French presidential election campaign and Macron seeking re-election..

I have seen both and I would suggest against posting the links anywhere other than on a war crimes reporting site, they are horrific.

If people want to find them, they will know where to look.

Just my pennies worth.

This is how WWIII will start - I believe it is inevitable.

From Sky News

Four Russian fighter jets have violated Sweden's airspace, according to the Swedish Armed Forces.

"In the light of the current situation we view this event very seriously," it said on its website.

It added that the violation was brief and took place east of the Swedish island of Gotland.

Not yet being reported on mainstream media, presumably awaiting corroboration.

But on the subject of war crimes, the ICC has just received the biggest referral in its history with 38 countries requesting investigation of atrocities committed in Ukraine.

henra. What gives you the idea that Sweden would start WWIII? It was the Russians that violated Swedish airspace, and there is no suggestion of retaliation. Perhaps you have been reading Putin's version of history, where he has to attack the "aggressive" Swedes

I think you did not really understand my post. It was Baldeep who was expecting WW III to arise out of this and I was questioning if (and how) Sweden would really be launching WW III (in general and especially over four oldish Russian fighters fliying close to an isalnd in the mid of the Baltic sea).
