These Russian forces may have the Mark of Zoro on their Vehicles but the Ukrainians appear to have the Mark of Caine.

Putin putting Russian nuclear forces on alertÖ

Putin: "Western countries aren't only taking unfriendly economic actions against our country, but leaders of major Nato countries are making aggressive statements about our country. So I order to move Russia's deterrence forces to a special regime of duty."

Yes, it was a very explicit nuclear threat: “the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history” twitter.com/russianforces/… This all makes me nervous. Kremlin has no good off-ramps at this point and is looking at an existential threat to the current state

Putin has put his nuclear weapons on high alert.

I do wonder if that will be a wake up call to the Russian higher echelon to get rid of Putin before they all die.

I am, for perhaps the first time in my life, truly frightened that a madman could start a nuclear war and kill us all.

Agreed and that will result in a retaliatory, the other worry would be itís being close to Chernobyl.

This is getting alarming, the Russian nuclear forces have been raised to highest alert. Putin has given this order this evening to Sergei Shoigu, which answered simply "Yes".

TASS:

Putin ordered the containment forces of the Russian army to be transferred to a special mode of combat duty

On Sunday, February 27, Vladimir Putin held a meeting in the Kremlin with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and Chief of the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces Valery Gerasimov.

"The top officials of the leading NATO countries also allow aggressive statements against our country. Therefore, I order the Minister of Defense and the Chief of the General Staff to transfer the deterrence forces of the Russian army to a special mode of combat duty. "Yes," answered Shoigu and Gerasimov.

Putin also noted that Western countries are taking unfriendly actions towards our country in the economic sphere: they are imposing illegitimate sanctions .

The meeting took place against the backdrop of a special military operation of the Russian Federation to demilitarize and denazify Ukraine.

I don’t hold out much hope of meeting, it will be a surrender type meeting and a shove it type reply.

Sadly, I concur. This farce is spiralling out of control, thanks to Vlad the Mad. My only hope is that someone in the Kremlin has the testes to rein him in … but that’s a faint hope.

Where’s the US? Defcon 2 or 1?

I've been joking about Vlad being out of his mind, but now I am starting to get worried that he really has lost his mental health. A sane creature would realize that an assault with even the smallest nuclear weapon on earth would mean an instant and total closure from the international community and a response from all the armies in the world.
If that response is in a low level there will only be about 10 million chinese invading from the south amongst others. If it spirals off entirely, Russia will cease to exist with majority of mankind. The countries that are left will fight on who has to take the worst contaminated land areas under control.
