The deed is done. All our Migs were transferred to Ukraine.


Slovakia is also manufacturing and delivering Zuzana-2 155mm howitzers but I am afraid this is about everything we can expect from my country in regard of weapon deliveries. Pro Ukraine government lost the vote of confidence in January, we have elections in September and per polls there is a high risk that pro Russian parties will win. 25 years of propaganda within hybrid war is taking its toll.

The United States believes that Russia should pay for the restoration of Ukraine, and is discussing with its allies options for circumventing legal restrictions on the use of frozen Russian assets, American Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in an interview with CNN.

High time this was done. Good luck in using Russ assets to finance defence against the war they started ... or maybe the leased airliners they have stolen ... or pay for upkeep of the millions of women and children they caused to flee their homeland.

There is a fire at an electrical substation in Belgorod. Preliminary reports suggest it was a UAV attack
Sensationalist nonsense, who would attack a civilian power station? Quite clearly, yet another instance of careless smokers.

Interview with Ukrainian soldiers about trench combat. In the footage, a Ukrainian soldier gets hit/grazed with a round to the head and gets back up to fight. He ended up being shot 3 times, but thankfully survived.

This puts the areas where there are the potential threat from ordnance in perspective.
