Amphibious landing in Odessa + Sea of Azov reported now.

One of the best sources to keep up with developments is this guy - ex-USMC now a Research fellow on Russian Defense policy - was one of 2 experts testifying to UK HCDC a few weeks ago.

One of the A400Ms came up on ads-b on the ground and then disappeared again.
People near to Engels base were recording them as they flew over. The SAM launch was initially claimed to be Ukrainian, but people are now saying Russian SAM launch against Ukrainian UAV?

Most, or all, airports in eastern Ukraine attacked. But attacks also under way against airports in western Ukraine.

I don't know about all of you - but I'd be prepared to pay more for petrol, food and other expenses to teach the Russians a lesson.
Time to annex Chelsea FC - seriously!

I had been watching Engels on ADS-B to see if anything showed up - but nothing did, unsurprisingly. I noted that civilian flights going towards the South were all diverted so I assume the bears went south to launch somewhere between Engels and Krasnodar/Stavropol. The whole area along the Georgian border was kept free.

Expect the same across the comment columns of the UK press.

Unless they can weed them out I’d suggest they turn comments off.

I expect them to be told to turn off comments. not that they'll do it quickly. Even fake traffic gives ad revenue.
