The West needs to start sanctioning anyone who supports this madman

Without providing evidence, Shoigu said Ukraine could escalate by using a "dirty bomb" - conventional explosives laced with radioactive material.

Ukraine is not going to kick off a dirty bomb on their own territory.

Putin is projecting because that's something he would do. He would rather leave pieces Russia uninhabitable than to let it be controlled by anyone else.

Moscow Midget continues with his destruction and war crimes. Lying to his troops and people about the real truth.

Does anyone here actually know why this war was startesd in the first place ?

Putin's Russians must be made to pay dearly for their escalating war crimes. Reparations to rebuild Ukraine and to resettle Ukrainians in their homeland must follow the prosecution of the Russian fascists and their propagandists responsible for all the death and destruction.

Russia invades. Russia attacks Ukrainian civilians destroying their homes in the process. Russia evacuates Ukraine’s civilians to Russia. Russia then scatters those evacuated civilians to the winds all across Siberia.

As soon as Putin starts talking about a nuclear "false flag", then we all know that he means that it is him that will use a nuclear device. Doesnt give a damn what the world thinks. The man is a psychotic murderer, who has no regard for human life, either ukranian or russian.

Did Russia aim for these homes, or is this the result of Ukraine trying to block the Russian drones.

Ukraine is not going to kick off a dirty bomb on their own territory.

Well, they are losing badly, and desperately want more help from the "international community". For a while they've been attacking a nuclear power plant and a damn.

"Everyone understands full well," Zelenskiy said. "They understand who is the source of all the dirty things imaginable in this war."

Yes, indeed they do know... it's you...

"Russia's defence chief warns of 'dirty bomb' provocation"

https://www.9news.com.au/world/russia-ukraine-update-dirty-bomb-provocation/718d02a4-7abb-4c62-aa1b-af2aaef06f83

Russia has zero boundaries when it comes to war. I am not talking of WWII or another time, I am talking about right now. False flag attacks on it's own undersea pipelines leaving nordstream 2 untouched to try to get gas flowing to Germany that Putin calculates as the EU and NATO weakest link simply due to its reliance on Russian gas supplies. Russia warning of a dirty bomb from Ukraine which will be another Russian false flag operation, possibly even irradiating tens of thousands of its own called up conscripts, (it will not risk its veteran competent troops) to give it the manufactured excuse to use battlefield nuclear weapons in Ukraine against Ukraine civilians and troops. Continued destruction of the energy grid in Ukraine which hurts civilians more than anything else. Not to mention the continuous targeting of residential buildings. How much more does the world need to witness the evil coming from Russian military actions that all stem from the micromanagement of Putin himself?

A complete embargo on Russia exports and imports needs to be voted on in the UN general assembly and enforced by UN forces, or UN authorized forces. The people of Russia need to stand up to this monster running their country in their name. He will drag all of Europe into a conflict that will wipe much of it away, and much of the rest of the world as well.

Putin has backed himself into a corner from which there is no escape and that means he will do ANYTHING including launching nukes, in trying to win the unwinnable. A serious attempt at assassination may be the only way out for the world. Either internal by Russian elements or external by world elements.

I have a growing suspicion that Russia is about to use a tactical nuclear device in the Kherson area.

(1) They removed civilians from Kherson and attempted to do in the area surrounding.

(2) The Russian command had repeatedly attacked civilians and infrastructure - months of war on civilians may have inured the Russians to their murder of non-combatants.

(3) When the Ukrainian army takes Kherson and crosses the Dnipro River they will threaten Crimea. Ukrainian forces will be in a position to push east toward the important industrial center and port of Mariupol

(4) The Russian command is now openly suggesting that Ukraine may be planning to use a “dirty bomb”. That will be the pretext for using a 1-10 kiloton tactical nuclear weapon. The Kherson river crossing would be a good spot. If peace comes, Russia will hold onto Donetsk and leave south central Ukraine irradiated.

Any use of nuclear weapons will not bring peace, it will only expand the conflict possibly bringing NATO into the conflict as Russian weapons radiation enters and damages the nearest NATO members. NATO forces will force Russian troops out of Ukraine using a massive wave of conventional weapons and troops. They will not cross internationally recognized Russian borders, but may target Russian military targets inside Russia if it continues to hit Ukraine infrastructure or if it targets NATO members territories. Any additional use of nukes or dirty bombs will see the situation deteriorate for all concerned.

If Russia is unable to win a stalemate with just conventional weapons, Putin will be desperate enough to try his luck pushing the envelope of acceptable use of weapons to the unacceptable. Hitler would not have hesitated in WWII and neither would Mussolini or Hideki Tojo or Stalin. Putin will not allow himself to face punishment or to lose his position of power without using all means at his disposal. And what he has at his disposal can end the world.

The world including Ukraine, will need to give assurances that Putin will not face death or imprisonment, but only house arrest in one of his palaces for a number of years, as his personal punishment. Otherwise he has nothing to lose in taking everyone around him, down with him. As hard as it is to let him live in palatial luxury after all the death and destruction he is responsible for, it is that or the end of Europe and much of the planet.

Russia hits Ukraine homes, evacuates Kherson:

In blowing up the dam, Putin wants to flood the city, reducing its power supply to force Ukraine army away.

Meanwhile, drones are quietly hovering all over the city, like a swarm of maddening thorny bees..

-1 ( +4 / -5 )

Mykolaiv lies roughly 35 km northwest of the front line to occupied Kherson, the southern region where Russia has ordered 60,000 people to flee a Ukrainian counter offensive "to save your lives" .

Russia prepared to defend Kherson so better to evacuate civil population (not flee)

Kiev never done such things during this conflict. Kiev's politicians just did not care about civilians.

totally agree. Zelensky is bombing civilians who democratically choose to rejoin Russia, sending missiles at Europe’s biggest NPP, targeting a massive dam, terrorist attacks in Russia, banning opposition parties and media…I just feel sorry for the little betrayed kiddies of this madman.

now a dirty bomb? Mad. Totally mad.

thanks Oblandi, together we can seek peace by dialogue.
