Excellent find, Nutty. Mikhail Khodarenok foresaw things surprisingly clearly!

Very insightful. I wonder if he was pushed out of his staff job because he was the nail that was standing up ?

Re Tartiflette's earlier:
What are peoples' experience with this ? I have tried it on a couple of publications- New York Times, Le Figaro -with very poor results: this may of course be a question of browser incompatibility ( using Brave ), so keen to hear what you have to say.
I too use Brave, and it opened the Torygraph link with less than 1 second's hesitation.

However, when I tried the Mikhail Khodarenok link so kindly posted by NutLoose, the page failed to load with a comment from Gurgle that the translation could not be carried out. On a whim I tried translating the text into English from Ukrainian rather than Russian and it worked perfectly

The Ďexistential threatí that Olga bangs on about is of course not to Russia itself. It is to her personally and anyone else closely linked to Putinís regime. When he goes so do they - probably quite messily.

A brilliant and insightful commentary by the Colonel. Either something is being set up at high level, or the Colonel may not be around much longer.

Nutty hinted too subtly. TV show from 3 months after the invasion.

Now it is 13.

Yup, I was putting him into context for those that may not recognise him from his name alone. He appears to be one of the few realists in Russia’s media.

​​​​​​​ The moment when Vladlen Tatarsky receives the "Golden Vladlen" bust

In the video you can hear the propagandist calling the girl to sit next to him, calling her Nastya (that's the name Daria Trepova introduced herself), and inviting her to sit next to him.

"I'm shy," the girl replied and sat on a chair near the window.

"Golden Vladlen. I'm much prettier here," Tatarsky said, looking at the bust, which, as it would turn out later, was stuffed with explosives.

After that, the video cuts to a black frame and the sound of a fire siren can be heard. Most likely it's an edited fragment of another video.

Is there any update on Putins's health ?
Don't recall seeing anything about it for some time.

How can there be an update when we have no confirmed evidence at any point ?

Rheinmetall is building a repair and logistical plant in Satu Mare, Romania, near the Ukrainian border, which will be operational at the end of this month. This is quite an impressive time frame.

With the repair shops in Poland and Lithuania this will make 3 countries in the immediate neighborhood ready to support, and Germany is also available.

"A Russian volunteer ordered $25,000 worth of sex toys instead of drones for Russian army" ó InformNapalm

Ukrainian hackers from "Kyberopir" managed to hack the AliExpress account of Mykhailo Luchin and adjust the order for the funds collected by the volunteer.

Looking at that map above, there seem to be at least three obvious places to cut through the Russian sausage pirated Ukrainian lands. Far too tempting left like that for Russia to make another attempt at pushing on to join up with Transnistria.

Where was it that the hand of a thief was lopped off as punishment?

RT Barbie, and her sidekick Solo the yesman are existential threats to both themselves and the poor shuck Russian 12-90 year olds that Lord Vader is happy that they pay the price for his ego trip.

Unfortunately his pulse rate is above zero, and the body fluids remain inside the sack.
