Russian joke….

In a Moscow traffic jam, a👨walks from 🚗 to 🚘 . A driver asks him: “What's going on?"

“🇺🇦ians have kidnapped Putin. If we don’t pay 20M rubble, they’ll douse him in gasoline and set him on fire! Would U like to chip in?”

“Sure, how much others have given?"

“A gallon or so."🔥

One ring to rule them all,
one ring to find them,
One ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them.

A trip to the cleansing, all consuming, fire pits of Mount Doom seems to be in order!

Surely no one would have the nerve to admit being a Ruzzian driver, given the standard of automotive guidance skills which have been displayed?

Unfortunately this works the other way as well, with NATO technology falling into RU hands. Undoubtedly why the Ukrainians aren't getting the latest.And how much Western tech is already on black markets wherever they need such stuff.

He mentions them getting F-16s , as there are lots which may be available if the political will’s there.
As discussed on F-16.net.
Do ‘we’ think they’ll get them?

When you are the leader of one of the Russian Republics (Republic in name only) and you want to motivate your troops and make the West scared...Best show everyone how hard you are...Kadyrov does press-ups. What a complete and utter chump.
