It can't be both, so which one is lying boldly?
Another that should be deprived of Oxygen.

I'm not sure what's more sickening, that fact that Lavrov believes these lies, or that he doesn't yet still regurgitates them.

None of that matters now as this sovereign nation has been invaded by a malevolent country.

All those russian cam models stocking up on essentials before VS shuts down its operation. One of the few reliable exports Russia still has to the west is porn...

That was from a few days ago. A terrifying drop to one's death. Another thing for Russian AF pilots to worry about - how well maintained are their ejector seats & parachutes?

Zelensky: “Our military managed to replenish its arsenal due to the many pieces of equipment it took on the battlefield. Enemy tanks, armored vehicles, ammo will now work for our defense. What could be more humiliating for the invaders? We’ll beat the enemy with its own weapons.”
How ironic

Do I feel sorry for him? Absolutely not. He and his comrades are knowingly committing war crimes, and I hope that those who escape death stand trial one day.

New activity expected? Two Rivet Joints (1 x USAF, 1 x RAF) plus a USAF E-8C are monitoring the Polish/Romanian border areas. Usual collection of tankers there as well.

I cannot find the original source but they are not blind . i have seen the interrogation of a rus pilot ( i think the survivor from that video) and he clearly answered the question abt if he knew that he was bombing civilians in their homes - "well, i didnt consider it, i have targets & coordinates"
Thats all u need to know if they regret

Strap line on Sky or BBC earlier, declaring that Patriots have been delivered to Ukraine.

Can't find it subsequently. Might be a bluff?

Edit: As wokkafans posted, it's Patriots to Poland, not Ukraine.

Probably a typo. Would be ironic if WW3 was caused by a clerical error...

Risers look a little long, but I could be wrong. Any chance this could be a tangle SU-25 drag chute after it and the rest of the aircraft parts abruptly ceased to fly in formation due to a SAM hit?

Concur. That's a drag 'chute, not a personal parachute.
