So you arrive at a Russian hospital for treatment after getting back from the front, to be told your Doctor has gone to the...front.

Things have to get worse before they get better. I think Putin is eventually going to have a bad case of high velocity lead poisoning, but not before December-ish when it is obvious that the Russian army has for all intents and purposes, collapsed and EU gas supplies are high enough to remove all of Putin’s leverage.

I wonder what back channel feelers with Putin’s inner circle are being pursued. We will never know of course but it makes for interesting speculation……

My thoughts on that for some reason BPF is of the film "The Sum of All Fears" where you see the Russian traitor running through the snow in a forest followed by two "KGB" officers who proceed to pump two mags into him.... Somehow that gives me a warm feeling towards it possibly happening to Putin.

Those trying to flee Russia into Finland, if they are Russian or Belorussian - don't let them through.
If they don't want to be called up to fight, then they should stay and help bring down the despotic apparatus.

Russia must be one of the few countries where you work hard to progress through companies all the way to the top, only to rapidly and unexplainedly rapidly fall all the way back down again.

Robert Jenrick MP:

I am delighted that my constituent, Aiden Aslin, and the other British prisoners of war held captive by the Russian authorities have finally been released and are on their way back to the UK.

I am deeply grateful for the work undertaken by the Ukrainian government, the Saudi Crown Prince, @trussliz @JamesCleverly and the dedicated civil servants working in the FCDO Detainees team to bring their horrific ordeal to a close.

Aiden’s return brings to an end months of agonising uncertainty for Aiden’s loving family in Newark who suffered every day of Aiden’s sham trial but never lost hope. As they are united as a family once more, they can finally be at peace.

Hoping that Finland is not letting these sorts of people in, they should be refused at the border.

Perhaps then the russian population will see that they are persona non gratis in the democratic western society.

that video is fake, not filmed today.

Anyway, FIN Foreign Minister announced today that Finland has started the process to stop Russian tourists crossing the border. "Very fast" was mentioned but...

Luring people to draft.

Moscow residents have noticed flyers around the city which say that by calling the number they will be helped to avoid forced conscription and mobilization. As it turned out, the number listed on flyers belongs to the military commissariat in Moscow.

Seems like that would be a good target for a Denial of Service attack

Israel just came on-side with Ukraine after Russia started using Iranian drones.

Israeli anti-drone technology is now being transferred to Ukraine.

Classic, a couple of Russians telling the camera they are Pro Russia and intend to go to Ukraine tomorrow to fight etc, BUT they don’t look happy when the Russian police are forcibly loading them onto a bus the same night.

"Flights departing Moscow and St. Petersburg today. The @AP is reporting international flights departing Russia have either sold out or skyrocketed in price after Putin announced a mobilization of reservists. "

Russians queuing to enter Georgia, one would have thought they would have closed the border.

Perhaps all these former pro-military operation supporters who, upon being told to report for training and service, are now departing at max speed to a “safe place” can be referred to as “Patriot Missiles”.

I cannot see the US sitting idly by if Putes decides to really start ramping up the risk of nuclear detonation - (I am horrified that we are even having to discuss this and a rubicon has been crossed).
Although Joe has let them know this will not stand, I am sure the Rusks will start having cavitation noises where their subs used to be.
Plausible deniability as well as removing large sections of the Rusk arsenal.

Hopefully the people on the streets are the first step in the downfall of Dictator P and his not so merry men.
