Distance from Sumy to Kyiv is 300Km, but it shows their target…

Canít understand the logic of blowing the bridges if they expect to keep using them. Perhaps an indication that the canal and water supply to Crimea was their only objective in Kherson and they arenít going to press north but turn east or west.

That must be an accident of some kind by the russians, that is pretty poor job by the ones responsible for it if it was intentional.

More than 100 municipal deputies from different cities of Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Veliky Novgorod, Samara, Ryazan, Yoshkar-Ola and others) signed an open letter condemning the “special military operation” against Ukraine announced by Putin.

Putin's talk of "denazifying" and "demilitarising" Ukraine certainly sounds like this is not just about securing the two eastern provinces but likely extends to regime change and installing a puppet - on the basis that turning Ukraine into a client state, Belarus stylee, is the best way to stop future Western military support to the current Ukraine and take NATO expansion off the table...

Not very surprising, but the only ones operating those are Russia, China and Egypt, so the chances are that that is Russian.

Putin, this morning, reminded the World that Russia has a formidable nuclear arsenal. He then said that anyone who interferes with his plans will face consequences such as they have never seen in their history.
For me, the inference is crystal clear - he will nuke anyone who gets in his way.
This is the start of WWIII.

Deep strike 'em to demonstrate to the part of the Russian public, you know the ones who are the equivalent of our Brexit idiots (aka they ones who go for all that wrestling grizzly bears nonsense that Putin panders to) that Ukraine is not as remote as they think

N.
Purile nonsense. Aside from the unwise idea of attacking Russia, please accept that you lost.

Deal with it.

Unmarked soldiers attacking Ukraine.... should they be "treated as spies and sabotoeurs the Russian style" instead of POW's.

Typical Putin bluster and threats. He will have to be very careful now, a considerable number of his inner circle do not subscribe to his suicidal lunacy.

He is a prime target for termination.

The "V" marking have been linked to Russian Forces operating in Belarus. Not sure why the national markings have been painted over. Claims on the internet that the crew were captured?

Maybe someone should put out 50million $ for someone terminating him. I'm sure there are wealthy Ukrainians who would be able to put out this kind of money.
