Any parts available on eBay? Any Vodka value?

Run down this list, it is depressing, it appears while Russia and the west are concentrating on Ukraine the rest of the world are trying to settle old scores.

My point is that, Crimea or not, his "palace" remains vulnerable to a host of possible attacks.

A lot of the crash sites don't have bodies or seats.. I assumed they ejected. A few didn't.

Russians have removed their flag from the main administrative building in Kherson. In addition, according to locals multiple Russian checkpoints around Kherson city have been abandoned.

Russian source on situation in Kherson

"Troops are withdrawn from the right bank of the Dnieper, several formations remain, the bulk are already on the left"

"A zone has been created on the left bank 15 km from the Dnieper, from which people are forcibly evacuated"

Might be the right time to invite the remaining victims conscripts to seek better treatment, food and care, all available from the Ukrainian side. Once they are concluded their "defence" of Kherson would seem prudent to disperse the Ukrainian forces as Vlad has been known to be a sore loser.

The left bank is the more low lying land, are the Russians about to advance the muddy season with a watery addition of their own and then blame on the Nazi Satanist LGBTs?

Ninthace, I mentioned that in a post several days ago and was told by our pprune experts that the Russians wouldn't be so stupid!!! Hmm, like you, I remain unconvinced.

I posted that before I knew the Turks were escorting but in any event it is an opportunity for other NATO nations to demonstrate intent and double call Putrid's bluff. Erdogan has done that more than once, successfully (re fighter shot down a few years back, no repercussions) and the western powers not showing resolve will only drag this out longer.

Well that was taken yesterday evening Nutty. Had it been anything significant it would have made the news by now I reckon.
