WTF isn't the Ukrainian Air Force bombing the shit out of those parked vehicles? They DO have about 70-80 reasonably modern combat aircraft.

Seems the Russian logistical problems are getting worse. Just can't seem to keep their army supplied with fuel and food. I imagine they're running short on ammunition as well.

  What paper maps are you looking at... trying to find some buried treasure somewhere?
 
Sorry, all you old white men look the same to me.

Oh, and I'm just trying to find my way to Albuquerque, that's what I use a paper map for.

Thanks to kaupmees for this tip:

How do you show images of war to people in Russia who may not be getting the news? You upload "user photos" to Google Maps' locations of popular tourist destinations... (graphic)

Beware of charity scams exploiting war in Ukraine

Looking to help people in Ukraine? Donate wisely – do your research first so you give without getting scammed...

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of major international organizations that provide emergency assistance in Ukraine:


IRC and HIAS are also in the field and fundraising, both reputable groups I support.

Maybe it's my confirmation bias desperately looking for good news, but when you go through all the twitter feeds of Russian hardware left unoccupied and abandoned, it really does look like nobody really wants this war except Putin and Lukaschenko. Wonder how long it is going to take till someone takes them out.


anything is possible, but i doubt that they will come to their senses and stop the invasion anytime soon
the coming occupation will be brutal and costly to all involved
pretty sure putin and lukastinko are censoring their media and internet as much as possible
they say sunlight is a good disinfectant and this is why they shield their actions in that controlled information darkness
the blowback from this destruction and killing spree will hopefully lead to their retirement

peace

Ok, so while admirable... this is potentially troublesome:

Americans, Canadians answer Ukraine call for foreign fighters

How long before Putin makes a claim that Canada & USA are actively recruiting and sending men to fight in Ukraine's International force and that this is no different than having to engage with Canadian & US military troops directly and lead to an escalation of this conflict? 

I could easily see this being given the spin treatment to try and justify escalating hostilities against the US and other countries.

I bet that there is financial incentive for Russian troops to find and capture (alive) foreign fighters for propaganda fodder.  How long do you think it will it take for a captured untrained volunteer foreign fighter to succumb to Russian physical and mental torture as to be coerced into saying (on video) that their own country/government/military forced them to join the Ukraine resistance? Answer: not very.

P.S. And if you happen to be an unlucky American volunteer caught by the Russians in this conflict... you better hope and pray that you are able to free yourself or the Ukrainians are able to save your bacon. There isn't going to be any Special Ops arriving in Blackhawks coming to liberate you.




Yep, all we need is some gung-ho loons fighting someone else's war, BUT it's been the way of wars forever, I think. Here's a Ukraine article from a day or two ago.
