additional dozen or so camera-equipped surveillance drones 

What kind of drones? They all have cameras, we could be talking about $15000 dollars worth for the lot.

Good on Japan. More assistance will be coming for as long as this illegal invasion by fascist Russia continues.

Bronco, Amnesty International has eyewitness testimony of Ukraine committing war crimes,by exposing Ukrainain citizen to danger

The war crimes by Ukraine had been going on for the last 8 years when they were shelling the Donbass region with the loss of more than 14,000 citizen's lives.

That was one of the main reasons Russia went in to Ukraine, apart from the broken Minsk agreements.

It's great to hear that Japanese surveillance drones have cameras.

A bit late. But that's Japan.

Saw a video from the Discovery channel on Russian military hardware. It showed Russian radar being able to detect small drones easily and shoot them down.

Googling "Amnesty International Russia" also turns up some interesting reading. Actually, don't bother Googling it, I'll just post the link:

30 camera toy drones, when the Ukraine is that huge in area (like size of Texas or so) and already the front line has a length of about 1,000 km or even more? That’s just another big ‘game changer’ -not- like those few HIMARS launchers, which probably also die more from loneliness in that big area than from being taken out by Russians.

Isn't it odd that the latest Amnesty report isn't being reported in the pro Kiev western press.

Could this be because it is rather scathing on Ukraine using civilians as cover? Also putting their tanks and artillery in schools and hospitals and indiscriminately firing into populated areas?

Shocking, except that it isn't true: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/aug/04/ukraine-civilians-army-bases-amnesty-russia-war

Could this be because it is rather scathing on Ukraine using civilians as cover?

The report is actually more scathing of Russia than Ukraine. It criticizes Ukraine for locating military units in close proximity to civilians. But the report also makes clear that the reason this is problematic in the first place is that the Russians use indiscriminate munitions to attack the Ukrainians and it is the Russians, not the Ukrainians, who are the ones actually killing civilians.

Also, this is ONE Amnesty report that is critical of Ukrainian forces. Look at just the most recent page of Amnesty International Reports from Ukraine:

https://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/?qlocation=2016

Out of 12, this is the only one critical of Ukrainian forces. Eight of them relate to Russian war crimes/ human rights abuses - several of which document crimes far more serious than the one Ukraine is criticized for - one to Belarus, and two are unrelated to the war itself.

I'll got out on a limb and guess that the "Pro Kremlin Russian Press" hasn't been paying much attention to these, am I right?

and indiscriminately firing into populated areas?

I've read the entire report, it does NOT criticize Ukraine for doing this nor does it cite any incidents of this happening. What it DOES do is criticize Russia for that, including an entire section titled "Indiscriminate attacks by Russian forces" which

If Ukraine is occupied, all of Russia's neighbors, including Japan, will be under threat.

The Russians place their armored vehicles just under the houses of the Ukrainians.

How to fight for Ukrainians? Do you offer them to surrender and not fight for their Motherland?

Meanwhile the moskovites are using the huge nuclear plant at Zaporizhzhia as a military base from which to attack Ukrainian forces and civilians, knowing Ukraine dare not fire back. The UN reports that the plant is ‘out of control’ and in need of inspection and maintenance.

How could anyone possibly trust Russia to keep the peace... They will attack again under some other pretext.

Ukraine: Ukrainian fighting tactics endanger civilians - Amnesty International

Maybe if you look for the LATEST Amnesty post....

The fact that the pro west Amnesty group even dares to speak against Kiev is a sign that support is dropping.

Let me just see if I understand your position on this correctly here. We can't believe anything bad Amnesty International says about Russia, but all the bad stuff they say about Ukraine is true?

Let us hope so.

you can used a frequency counter to track drone,by tracking their RF signal,

That also works against Russian drones.

When Russian bombs hit hospitals just remember the report.

One solution is for the moskovites to stop bombing hospitals, schools, residential areas, whole cities, in Ukraine.

Putin started this, Putin can stop it. Just Go Home. Call off the orcs.

Whether Ukraine is ‘pure as snow’ or not is beside the point. They are reacting to the unprovoked and unjustifiable invasion of their country by a horde of barbarians who literally rape, pillage and flatten cities. They can do whatever is necessary to defend themselves, and if the orcs don’t like it they can and should Go Home.

Ukraine as trustworthy as Russia! Selling all the donated weapons to 3rd party countries and keeping the loot! They are taking the west for all they are worth! Lucky the US has dibs on Ukraine….

Desperate Putin 'is considering turning to Kim Jong Un for help in Ukraine and offering energy and grain in return for 100,000 soldiers', Russian reports claim. Reacting, reserve colonel Igor Korotchenko told Russian state TV: 'We shouldn't be shy in accepting the hand extended to us by Kim Jong-un.'
