The Moscow Midget continues with his lies to his own people and the world. He continues to bomb and shell civilian targets.

so is UA winning and crushing Russia already?

still never heard clear answer.but according to Volodymyr "its in process"?

Correct. Each and everyday Ukrainians wake up in a free and independent country is a small victory. Each and every day AFU takes back their territory from the imperialist invaders.

Just turn your question around: Is Russia winning yet? What are they winning? Thousands of Russian men are being slaughtered and for what? To please Putin's bloodlust?

that Ukrainian forces were preparing a “provocation” involving a radioactive device — a so-called dirty bomb.

This is a typical lie from the Russian as..les.

This so called dirty bomb, is exactly what the Russian insane mass murdering Mob wants to use. The Russians do not hesitate to use nuclear weapons and now they are looking for an excuse to use it.

They understand now that they will lose this war and they will pay the highest price for all the crimes they did and for all the sorrows they brought to innocent men, women and children.

And now, the only way out for them is to use nuclear weapons and so they start to look for an excuse to use them.

I would not be surprised if the Russians would use such kind of a dirty bomb and then they give the blame to the Ukraine or the Nato or the West....

One thing we've learned, if Putin says the Ukrainians are about to do something, he's just signaling his own false-flag operation....

How humiliating it must be for him to show the world that Russia's own planes, tanks and missiles are worthless, and he has to go begging to the Iranians for any weapon that is halfway effective...

I wouldn't want to own any stock in Russian arms companies...

So much suffering and pain only because one monster decided to invade, but then I see the photo of a soldier kissing his partner and it gives me hope that when this carnage is over Ukraine will rebound and be prosperous again,

Glory to the people of Ukraine.

“Terror with the use of ‘Shaheds' can actually last for a long time,” he was quoted as saying in the Ukrainska Pravda newspaper, adding: “Air defense is basically coping, 70% are shot down."

Let's hope new air defence systems from the West will increase that number.

I note that Iran is also willing to sell Russia cruise missiles. But these are a lot more expensive and likely less effective.

A Special Military operation against Nazi's in Ukraine... so where are they - they escaped ?

A non-invasion - so why invade ?

Attacking only Military targets - so why are Civilian residential buildings being targeted ?

Plot to blow up a Dam... now that one, could be dubious without proof, just as a plot to release a dirty bomb within the area - though Russia did occupy a Nuclear Power Station, and place it in a precarious situation.

@Yrral - this time I agree with you, it will not have a happy ending, unless... there's an unexpected intervention - a twist to the tale, one which changes the course of History towards a happy ending - in that, we can but place our hope.

Everything should be done to encourage the Russian troops to turn themselves in to the Ukrainians. If the Russian "recruits" refuse to fight it could be one way of ending this cruel and illegal war.

I agree but it’s tricky. How many actually want to be there we don’t know and how many believe the lies they’ve been told we don’t know. We don’t know how many if any are like the RT host who suggested drowning the Ukrainian children (since apologized for being caught up in the moment I know).

Moscow Midget was practicing nuclear weapon exercises even before his invasion.

If the Republicans win the mid-terms, then the situation in Ukraine may change - apparently, Biden's son has links to corrupt dealings within Ukraine, to the point, that the Russian line of argument seems plausible. Though never-the-less, invading a Sovereign Country is an act of War, not a Special Focused Military Operation - and Russia needs to be held account internationally, regardless who has power in the US.

I hope sane minds will persist, regardless.

Putin's relatives fear for his health amid constant coughing.

Russia's said nothing in the past 12 months about this whole affair that is believable. In fact they've done everything opposite of what they've said. So, excuse us all if we don't buy this one.

Once again Russia predicting something they are planning to do?

Aways the same: blame others for the screw ups you are guilty of!

Ah yes, the Ukrainian government is about to use a dirty bomb on their own land and people in a conflict which largely swinging in their favor. Makes total sense. Someone in the Kremlin needs to put the bottle of vodka down.

There is a website setup to let Russians know how, when and where to surrender: https://visitukraine.today/blog/928/how-not-to-join-the-russian-army-or-surrender-step-by-step-instructions-for-the-occupiers

Attention! There is a 24-hour hotline of the Coordinating Staff for the Treatment of Prisoners of War for Russian military personnel who want to surrender. The military men and their relatives can refer to it at +38 066 580 34 98 and +38 093 119 29 84 (24 hours).

How to surrender if you are alone?

• Unbuckle the magazine and hang the weapon on your left shoulder with the barrel down

• Raise and show your empty hands

• Pull up the white cloth.

• Shout loudly, "Zdayusʹ!"

• Approach on command.

• Comply with the demands of the Ukrainians

The Moscow Midget continues with his lies to his own people and the world. He continues to bomb and shell civilian targets.

And now this 'dirty bomb' excuse for more abuse.

'Teeeee-chuh! Joey's shooting rubber bands! Not meeeeee!'

That's how Putin is acting, like that brat kid 'snitching' on somebody for something he does himself. Somebody needs tell Putin what to pick up and where to PUT it!

Most of this is probably fake

If the reports contradict your personal worldview, pre-conceptions and prejudices, yes, then they are "probably fake." Right?

One thing Zelensky has made abundantly clear is that he has no problem with sacrificing the Ukrainian people to enrich himself and his partners...
