:lol:  Congratulations, putlerians. What a model soldier you've got there. 

(It's just too funny to be true, but one can hope it is true :lol: After all, that's Ruzzia... it might as well be true.)

An obese Russian retired general has been sent to fight on the frontlines in Eastern Ukraine because Vladimir Putin is running out of senior officers.

The 20 stone general, 67, is now said to be in charge of Russian special forces operating in the region after the unit’s former commander was seriously injured in an artillery strike.

...

A senior intelligence source last night told the Daily Star Sunday: “Putin is now scraping the barrel.

“Most of his best and battle-hardened senior commanders have been killed or injured fighting in Ukraine so he is resorting to sending second rate officers to the front who don’t last very long.

...

He is understood to require five meals a day washed down with at least a litre of vodka.

However he says that a "neutral" Ukraine would be best for not only Ukrainians but for the world. He says that the west insisting on EU and Nato membership is forcing Ukraine to take an "agressive" stance towards Russia.

That’s a ridiculous statement.  Nations can request membership, but there’s not some sort of NATO talent spotter that visits nations and recruits them into NATO.

Ukraine has requested membership, not because the pushy west are insisting, but because it faces an existential threat from a very powerful neighbour.

And I would suggest Ukraine’s aggressive stance toward Russia has much more to do with Russia bombing the s*** out of its cities and killing its civilians than any western opinion of Russia.  Actions tend to speak much louder than words.

My understanding of the Lithuania situation is that Lithuanian authorities are stopping russian vehicles traveling to Kaliningrad.

Russia sees that as picking a side

...or it's just doing the right thing and not enabling a war mongering country.

Hi Knob

Lituania is and EU country and has been since 2004 and upheld sanctions that were implimented in EU countries against Russia. If Russia attempts any action in Lithuania they will be putting themselves in an even worse position than they are currently in.

So, would Ukraine's neutrality prevent an invasion? If you think so, I'll point you to the battle plans accidentally leaked by the Belarusian president, Lukashenko, in which Moldova was highlighted as a target for invasion.

Of course they are picking a side. They know they might be next if they don't pick a side Hugh.

Like I have said many times here (especially to you @Occult1) neutrality only works if all sides respect it. The war in Ukraine shows that Putin have no respect of neutrality.

We tried neutrality in World War 2. It didn't work, so we became a founding memeber of NATO.

I mean, if the guy was exceptionally rotund but damn good general, then it absolutely would make sense to reactivate him, but certainly not send him to an active war zone. 

He can't fit into armored vehicle. He can't run. He can't hide :lol:  Oh, but a platoon can hide behind him, so there... it's Putler's military genius showing...

The West wants to go further on Russian oil. Inflation is making that difficult

New York (CNN Business)Europe and the United States have barred the import of Russian oil to cut off a crucial revenue source for the Kremlin. But the plan to pile pain on President Vladimir Putin, forcing him to reconsider his war in Ukraine, hasn't worked. 

Russia is making just as much money from energy exports as it was before it invaded in late February. Meanwhile, inflation is surging globally, adding to political pressure on leaders such as US President Joe Biden, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron.

As leaders from top economies gather in Germany on Sunday for a G7 meeting, they'll try to reach a consensus on what to do next. Unfortunately, on oil, few good options are available.

Russian Oil Flows to Europe Have Quietly Started Creeping Up

Europe’s resolve to stop buying Russian crude may be starting to ebb.


The continent’s oil refineries took 1.84 million barrels a day of crude from Russia last week, according to tanker tracking data compiled by Bloomberg. That was the the third consecutive weekly increase and took flows from Russia to Europe, including Turkey, to their highest in almost two months.

Russia Nearly Doubled Its Income From Energy Sales To The EU During Wartime, Study Shows

Moscow continues to benefit from Europe's energy dependence on Russian oil despite a reduction in sales due to sanctions imposed to pressure it to end its war against Ukraine, according to experts with a Finland-based research organization.

New research by the Center for Research on Energy and Clean Air (CREA) released on April 28 shows that Russia has nearly doubled its revenues from sales of fossil fuels to the EU during the two months of war in Ukraine.

In the latest sign that Moscow appears intent on punishing Europe for sanctions and military support for Ukraine, Gazprom, the Russian state-controlled energy giant, last week cut by 60 percent the amount of gas it delivers via Nord Stream 1, a critical pipeline serving Germany and other countries. It is not clear if the throttling is a precursor to a complete cutoff.

On Thursday, Germany triggered the second stage of its three-step emergency gas plan, citing a deterioration of natural gas supplies. The final stage could include gas rationing. “Even if you don’t feel it yet: we are in a gas crisis. Gas is a scarce commodity from now on,” said Robert Habeck, the economy minister.

So are these “new recruits” the 18-60 year old men who were prevented from leaving Ukraine? What happened to the men of Ukraine?

Ukraine declared a state of emergency when they were invaded and declared martial law as I understand it. What is your point?

Putin apologist would like us to make the stretch assumption that this means Ukriane does not actually want to fight Russia.

This is slightly wrong, they are actually making more money on oil exports than before the conflict.

I dont get why they sanctioned oil to be honest. Russia exports oil to us, we need oil, what will happen if we sanction it? Really, I mean what dimwit didn`t think that one through? Let me guess, Biden.

The sanctions are a strategic blunder which was quite easy to predict. Why hasn`t NATO taken over free Ukraine yet? What prat is making the decisions at the top of the NATO side? Let me guess, Biden lol.

Remember Obama warning everyone Biden is incompetent at foreign affair decisions?

Yeah, I’m sure after this response you saw the article I posted stating their energy revenue has doubled, It’s not a big deal. The “success” and impending “victory” of the sanction and by extension the entire conflict in Ukraine can be waved away with memes and personal attacks. 


The reality is that countries that suffer from fuel shortages and inflation lose the will and ability to wage war.
