Regarding pro-orc activity... we're so fortunate that they are... you know the rest. 

 

This would indeed help, because once Russian genocidal intentions are officially recognized as such, then it will be more clearer to potential victims of orc propaganda that the "both sides are the same" narrative is in fact a Ruzzian propaganda trap. 

https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-polytics/3515164-us-congress-seeks-to-recognize-russian-war-crimes-in-ukraine-as-genocide.html

A bipartisan group of U.S. lawmakers on Friday introduced a resolution characterizing Russia’s actions in Ukraine as an act of genocide.

...

It is noted that atrocities in Ukraine are committed for a specific purpose. This is evidenced, among other things, by the fact that in April this year, Putin awarded a number of Russian servicemen and units accused of committing war crimes in Bucha, including torture, rape, and extrajudicial killings of civilians.

More must be done to help Ukraine export their grains via their Western borders (instead of by Black Sea route, still blockaded by orcs). My country's ports are at full grain capacity but it is urgently needed to find ways to accept more. 

 

https://www.ukrinform.net/rubric-economy/3515145-ukraine-increases-grain-exports-by-50-every-month-amid-sea-blockade.html

To address the global food crisis caused by Russia's blockade of Ukrainian seaports, Ukraine is increasing its grain exports across its western borders by 50 percent every month.

...

 

"We are doing everything possible and the dynamics are really positive at the moment. Every month, we raise the volume of grain exports across the western borders by almost 50%. Were it not for the fact that last year's crops needed to be exported urgently, we could in a few months reach the normal average monthly volume that we had before through our ports," the head of the department stressed.

As reported earlier, as a result of hostilities, more than 20 million tonnes of Ukrainian grain remain stuck in Ukrainian seaports. Part of this volume was intended for exports under the UN World Food Program. As a result, a number of vulnerable nations are now facing the threat of famine.

Several explosions rocked Ukraine's capital Kyiv early on Sunday, June 26.

According to the Ukrainian Air Force Command, on June 25, Russian forces used sea-based Kalibr missiles against targets in western Ukraine, Kh-22 and ground-based Iskander and Tochka-U missiles against targets in northern Ukraine, and Oniks missiles and Bastion complexes against targets in southern Ukraine.

"The enemy struck the capital in the morning. Air defense worked in the region - one missile was shot down. The remnants of the missile fell on the outskirts of a village," Kuleba said.

 

Source is Ukrinform. 

 

Ukraine needs more than urgent help in aviation and anti-aircraft defense. (And everything else.)

They are doing miracles with the little they have. But that's not enough to stop Russians from destroying Ukraine, since Russians don't care for conventions and the fact that they'll deplete their own conventional resources trying to break Ukrainian resistance. 

Russian missile attacks at Ukraine are carried out from the Belarus territory too. Why would it be a problem then, that defensive actions for Ukraine are carried out from Ukrainian allies' territories?   

But but but WWIII... enough of buts, it has already started, on Feb 24th, as far as Putler is concerned. Russian macabre circus will travel, it won't stop on Ukraine. They've got no brains or means to conquer, but they've got enough of dumb bombs to inflict a lot of damage. Sawed off Stalin reads extreme caution as a sign of weakness. To stop Russia now, before they lead themselves into truly desperate situation, it's essential to start hitting it back.  

Western support for Ukraine is great, it's wonderful, it's essential, but the West has every right to actively, directly defend itself by taking direct part in the defense of Ukraine, which was held outside of the EU and NATO only by illegal Russian influence.   

Morning sermon over :D

I'll take that as a compliment :lol:  

 

 

One of the reasons why I don't think pro-orc propaganda spreaders should be seen as a benign matter: 

Ukraine's Operational Command "South" reported on June 25 that Russia collects information on Ukrainian service members through captured data or collaborators and uses it to kidnap families of Ukrainian soldiers, including their children.  

https://kyivindependent.com/

 

Each Russian propaganda supporter is practically a Russian collaborator even today and an actual saboteur and traitor tomorrow. 

Bearing Lukashenko's statement in mind, that applying sanctions on Kaliningrad is an act of war, that rhetorical tomorrow might come literally tomorrow. It's not someone else's business, it's Putler's intention to defeat NATO and the West in its entirety, culture of personal freedom included.

Each acquaintance each of us has, who has ever said something pro-putlerian, is not just a person with different opinion that stems from cognitive issues of some kind, it's an orc and an actual security risk. 

Just like Ukraine had to, our countries too have to allow public expressions of pro-Russian personal views, complete with spreading pro-Russian propaganda as a part of these views, but such obligation stops when the war starts. 

It is very amusing, though, to see all the westerner pro-Russians nicely outed. Right on time.  

We are very lucky that they are so... ahem-ahem.

@el midgetron stick to the topic please - if you want to discuss something unrelated to the war in Ukraine, best to start a new thread.

Thank you.

Russian missile strikes hit a residential complex in the Ukrainian capital Kyiv early Sunday, wounding two people and burying others under rubble, the city's mayor Vitali Klitschko said.

Four explosions were heard at around 6:30 am (0330 GMT), half an hour after air raid sirens sounded in the capital, which has not come under Russian bombardment for nearly three weeks.

Does Ukraine not have any missiles that can reach Moscow?  If not, we should give them some.

NATO and Russia are in deadlock, and Ukraine is caught in the middle from picking sides.

Belarus currently have a 30,000 strong military exercise going on just over the border due to end at the end of the month. Is this their invasion training? Are they to own Kiev? And why has Russia started building up in Belarus near to the Lithuanian border? I case someone tries to stop Belarus or because they are going to connect up with Kalingrad?

I believe you're severely misinformed. 

It was the will of majority of Ukrainian citizens to both practically and officially join both European and generally Western alliances, since the fall of the USSR. 

It is typically Russian propaganda conspiracy theory that Ukraine doesn't know where they belong.

So many questions, so few IQ points to answer them.

Been saying for a while we should be sending Ukraine cruise missiles. If Ruzzia can hit anywhere in Ukraine they like, Ukraine should also be able to hit Ruzzia its fair game.

There is no deadlock between Russia and Nato, it's as simple as this, conventional warfare Russia looses, nuclear warfare every one looses.

Russia has put itself in a no win situation, and there are still efforts to give Russia a way out, for which Russia refuses not only to take but creates new claims every week or so gor why it invaded Ukraine.

About Belarus, I find unlikely, though not impossible for them to join Russia in Ukraine, as the current regime is still in power due to Moscow intervention, if the people of Belarus riot again I have no doubt thst Russia will claim some nazis are trying to take over the country to intervene again with some special military operation bs reasons.

Also if Belarus joins Rússia it also shows that Russia despite its field gain (and unfortunately I do think Russia is winning the war but at ridiculous costs and stupidly slow western actual response) it cannot sustain for much longer the military costs of the the conflict.

Last week Russian economic forum or whatever they call it was a joke under the current circumstances.

Russia losses after this are way bigger than any gains.

I've been watching a bit of this video, and I have to say... it's encouraging me to look at the Russo-Ukrainian war from a different angle.

Obviously it does not factor in the alleged "de-nazification" operation currently underway by Russia, but it is... interesting. And holds quite true, even seven years later.

What I find interesting is how Russia's current invasion in Ukraine happened on a date within about four days of the date that the war initially kicked off (which resulted in the annexation of Crimea): February 24th 2022 vs February 20th 2014. I am wondering if there is any significance to these events happening in February1?

Apparently there is - the Russian revolution happened in February of 1917, from the 24th to 28th.

“The west is principally responsible for this mess, not Russia”

For me, looking at the events prior to 2/24 and understanding  how US military interests are sold to the public by the US media, this is a pretty elementary thesis. Having this perspective, I also believe the way this specific conflict is now going isn’t really what he west is interested in or be willing to continue for the timeframe required to “defeat” Russia.

That's pretty dumb.

Russia invades a nation that in no way attacked them. And then blames other people for it.

I endured 14 minutes and 33 seconds.

At that point it became clear that this guy doesn't understand what the true root causes are.

It's not NATO and EU pushing eastward, on their own. It's the people in former Warsaw pact (and "unaligned" periphery) that are desperately trying to get rid of Russia and now you see why. 

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind you exploring the topic, I'm just saying he's doing the common mistake of assuming Eastern Europeans (in broad sense of that term, so I include myself too) are cattle without own opinions, desires and ways to make things happen the way we want. 

I've got no idea what he says after 14:33, or today, 7 years after, but he's got no idea what my folk truly wants so there.

It’s the thesis of the above video.
 

What’s dumb is a strictly isolated perspective on the conflict. I believe the video predates 2/24.

Yeah. Its a dumb thesis. Ukraine did nonething that justifies a Russian invasion. Putin needs to stop trying to relive his glory days of the Soviet union

... those who propose sacrificing Ukraine’s land are actually proposing paying in Ukrainian blood for the illusion of peace, as any agreements will be a mirage unless accompanied by the restitution of Ukrainian territory and the containment of Putin’s imperialism.

"Putin has made clear he will not stop at Ukraine in his ambitions, but go further by targeting other sovereign nations – especially those he believes perniciously are part of Russia. That is why no one can feel secure until Russia retreats from Ukraine and is never able to perpetrate such aggression again," the statement said.

First reports from G7 meeting brightened my day. That up there is from joint statement of Ukrainian Kuleba and UK's Truss. Very accurate in my opinion. Also, Macron's office says Johnson is very enthusiastic about the idea of European geopolitical union in which, of course, UK would take part. I like that idea too, since it could fix the part of Brexit damage.

That's how I would probably feel if I was a Ukrainian. 

If you concede some of your land than what is to stop Russia from invading more in the future once they recover? Russia has already shown their promises mean nonething. They didn't stop at Crimea and they won't stop at Donbas.
