I've watched a little of RT and was surprised to see them cover the protest marches in Russia against this war.

Do RT broadcast in Russia? Semi-serious question...

Not the brightest Russians in the military.


Two railwaymen seized a #Russian armored personnel carrier. One of the Russian invaders got out of the cab and asked for directions. The railwaymen pointed the way to a dead end. Once trapped, two of the occupants were detained. Two others managed to escape.

Their documentary channel, which consists of RT-produced documentaries related to Russia, is the only channel broadcast in the Russian Language but they do have an internet presence.
As the channel is aimed at the World rather than Russia I so suspect that it isn't broadcast within Russia.

Re Putin’s 5,000 word treatise on the origins of Russia and Ukraine last July.

In retrospect, perhaps it should have been titled “Mein Camp”.

HAHAHAHHAHHHHAAAAAAA, if it wasn't so serious, it would be funny....

A Russian that was marking Ukrainian buildings targeted for bombing was caught by Ukraine citizens. His pants were removed and he was wrapped around a pole.

I consider this probable assassination of a high profile person as another sign of high nervousness in the top echelons in Russia. Won't be the last I guess.

Is "thermobaric " the same as FAE ?

cheers

According to this ex-NATO German general, Putin's enhanced status is only level 2 on a scale rising to 4 .

He also says that the Russian system for launching nukes requires the "presence" of two of three "suitcases " held by Putin, the Defence Minister and the Chief of the General Staff.

They fired an MLRS into the middle of Kharkiv, pictures of Ukrainian women with their legs blown off (not in this link) and corpses scattered everywhere. I’m not certain where the line is for a war crime, but I am certain that Putin has crossed it.

In the news, Russia using rockets against civilians

Is "thermobaric " the same as FAE ? Yes, as I understand it. Nasty stuff, and diabolical to use it in a residential area.

Beamr 28th Feb 2022 13:25

Bejesus, I am not going to forward the material from Kharkiv, the title says it all
"family was killed and burned alive in a vehicle attacked by a hail of shelling by Russian forces in Kharkiv."

Valery Gerasimov, the Chief of the General Staff, was just replaced by Putin, wonder why....

He was a looter in the original Tweet.

Same thing happened to my mate on his stag night.
