If Putin/Medvedev wants to destroy humanity over this nonsensical, pointless invasion, so be it. You're not going to rape and murder innocents.
Trying to divert attention from Putins warcrimes does not make much of an impression. :roll:
You're talking about impression?
I gotta make sure they know who they messing with

Cruel Winter for those who chose to play God in Gods Country

As of now, the RU shot down an unarmed drone in international waters. There will likely be repercussions.

Mad Dog
The only explanation for a US drone operating close to a war zone,is to gather information,information about the Russians, to be delivered to Ukraine .

So if Wagner increases by 30,000 men by May 2023 we could be looking at Wagner occupying the attention of up to 50% of Ukrainian front line forces, up from 30%.

Also, for about 2 months now Wagner has been banned from recruiting from prisoners. Instead the Ministry of Defense recruited them for themselves.

This means that this war is majority fought by Ukrainian separatists, Russia's convict population and by private military contractors with regular servicemen and reservists playing mainly defensive and leadership roles.

Putin visited Mariupol, incognito. Tomorrow he will dine with Emperor Xi.

It appears that he visited the new construction in the city.

After one year of war in Ukraine, for Denmark the vision and feeling of United States seen as an ally is more important in the Scandinavian Kingdom than in Great Britain

According to a poll in 10 European countries, United States more perceived as an «ally» than a «necessary partner» after one year of war in Ukraine, opinion shared by 52% of the people in Denmark in 2023, more than in Great Britain, they were only 35% two years before while the percentage in Germany has increased from 19 to 32%

in the same time Russia has passed from «necessary partner» to «adversary»
Russia is widely seen as an “adversary” or “rival” by Europeans, while the EU is perceived as stronger than before the start of Moscow’s war on Ukraine, according to a report by the European Council on Foreign Relations
On average, two-thirds of those polled across 10 European countries consider Russia as a rival to their own country, while 40 % see it as weaker than before it invaded Ukraine.

The “adversary” stance was strongest in Denmark (82 %), followed by Estonia and Poland (both 79 %), Britain (77 %), Germany (69 %),
Spain (65 %), France (59 %), Portugal (57 %) and Italy (54 %). In Romania, 44 % said Russia is an adversary or rival.

As usual the US taxpayer has to pay for everything:

https://www.ft.com/content/aee0e1a1-c46 ... fcbc46ed17

"Explosives shortage threatens EU drive to arm Ukraine
Scarce gunpowder and TNT supplies delay shift to ‘large-scale war production’, defence industry and officials warn"

"
Europe’s push to make arms for Ukraine has been hobbled by a shortage of explosives, which industry insiders fear will delay efforts to boost shell production by as much as three years.

Scarce supplies of gunpowder, plastic explosives and TNT have left industry unable to rapidly meet expected EU orders for Ukraine, regardless of how much money is thrown at the problem, according to officials and producers.

The supply chain constraints underline how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has badly exposed Europe’s inadequate arms stocks and weak domestic production capacity, run down by decades of under-investment."

"Ukrainian troops are using more than 90,000 rounds a month of 155mm ammunition,"

"Before the war started, the U.S. could produce roughly 13,000 rounds a month...That monthly figure has jumped to about 20,000 rounds this year,"

"Before the war started, the U.S. could produce roughly 13,000 rounds a month...That monthly figure has jumped to about 20,000 rounds this year,"
Thus, the existing US production facilities for the production of 155 mm rounds can provide active combat operations of no more than 25 ABRAMS tanks, provided that all other artillery guns of this caliber (for example, M777) will be inactive.
In total we have.
If the entire existing production capacity of the NATO bloc for the production of 155 mm rounds will be used to supply this type of rounds to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, then the latter will be able to use an average of about 55 ABRAMS and Leopard 2 tanks daily in battles, provided that these 55 tanks will fire no more than 30 rounds per day.

I have a low opinion about the mental abilities of the Russian bourgeoisie, which seized power in 1991.
However, against the background of the mental abilities that the European and American bourgeoisie demonstrates today, their Russian colleagues look like Newtons and Einsteins.

Hello, dear Sid!
Let me tell you that you are standing at the wrong train station and reading the wrong train schedule.

Winter is still there, and Ms. Rasputitsa has just arrived.

Hi Yuri,,

I am not sure what your post meant, but it didn't even address my question, let alone answer it.

Try again:

Hi wm,

The Rasputitsa thaw marks the end of winter. That is why I am asking.

Cheers,

No, no. Actually, she is at her best in spring. She needs spring rains to be a "female dog".
