Message to Ukrainian people: Zelensky and Jelly Joe will fight to the last Ukrainian - until icecream Joe calls it a day. Come on man, you know its coming.

Nobody in history has been able to force Russia to capitulate and surrender.

Apart from the Crimean War. Or Afghanistan. Or WW1.

Apart from them and several others you are right.

This is so sad. So Hitler esque.

To save face Russia could depose Putler, apologize to the world community, leave Ukraine, pay for the phyisical damage to Ukraine with 10x the actual cost, give ample pensions to all of the widows, sons and daughters of Ukraine, sign real nuclear limitation agreements, reduce their nuclear arsenal, and agree to defend world peace for everyone. They have tons of gold and plenty of oil to do it.

I know it is naive but it would be nice. It's really their only real way back into the world community. In 5 years of positive action people would start to forgive them. Otherwise they face the continual exposure of how little Ukraine with 43mm people is kicking their ass with a few weapons from the west, exhibiting for everyone how their weapons are inferior, their army poorly trained, poorly commanded. It's so like the beginning of the eastern front in WWII. Poor Russians being sacrificed by a paranoid little dictator for his self aggrandizement, cannon fodder. All powered by nationalistic brainwashing. Sad for Russia, sad for Russians to obey blindly, sad for the suffering they endure, and doubly sad in every way for Ukraine. Hopefully Ukraine will emerge from this without Russia, corruption and a police state.

You complain about propaganda, and then post a whole bunch of it?

Interesting pro Ukraine propaganda twist in this story. Several mentions of low Russian moral. Who is going backwards? Whose casualty rate is at least 7-1 ? Who has thousands of fighters about to be surrounded in Bakhmut? Who doesn't have electricity in winter? The Ukrainians.

Most of the evacuees from Bakhmut went to the Russian held areas. A foreign volunteer fighting for the Ukrainians reported that civilians still in the area were a problem as many of them were pro Russian and passing on information on movements etc so they were forcing those still in the area to leave.

Time to end this war, there will not be any miracle Ukraine victory. The lines are not far from where they are going end. How many more have to die?

if a person shoots a criminal to death during a home invasion…

Im afraid in this case the criminal has invaded the home, shot the homeowner, ravaged his wife, nicked all his stuff, claimed it was all his anyway and then said it’s okay because the homeowner was thinking about installing a burglar alarm.

Ahh nothing like some "anti truth" from Pro Russians to make a day complete.

Ukraine started it by bombing the Kersh Bridge, a civilian infrastructure they had been warned NOT to target.

Russia started it by invading Ukraine, which they had been warned not to do.

The US most certainly blew up the Nord Stram Pipes!

No the Russians blew it up. Knew it was now useless and launched a false flag operation in attempts to get international sympathy on their side. Another Russian miscalculation.

Russia has repeatedly attacked civilian infrastructure far from the front lines

Not unexpected. Russian brutality in war has been documented in one conflict after another.

Their no fool ,like a European fool, reaping what they sowed with Putin

Yes, being a better place to live than Russia and having less corrupt leaders than Putin sure provoked him into brutal criminal action all right.

Whose casualty rate is at least 7-1 ?

Russian casualties. Mostly Wagner prisoner's/soldier's lately. The Ukrainian turkey shoot of Russian invaders continues.

Several mentions of low Russian moral

It is hard to have good moral with poor equipment and a virtual guarantee of imminent death to look forward to.

Russia will gain ground in their "Spring offensive". It will be much less than they want, less than they took the year before, and then they face the Ukraine offensive with more modern weapons and an army determined to free the country from scum. Ukraine will take back more than they lose and reduce the Russian footprint in Ukraine from its current infestation.

“They were invaded” is the laziest response to an individual issue ever.

Lazier than 'They were provoked'?

Can we have your Grand Unifying-Loonyfying Theory on the cause of this war again please? Something about Biden and his son if I remember rightly.

“They were invaded” is the laziest response to an individual issue ever.

not ever single thing they are doing or have done or want to do is justified just by that.

Ukraine started it by bombing the Kersh Bridge,

Ludicrous. Did this happen before or after Russia invaded Crimea and then later the rest of Ukraine?

a civilian infrastructure they had been warned NOT to target.

Is this how war works? All Zelensky had to do was warn Russia NOT to invade and it wouldn't have happened.

We've been told ad nauseam by the Us and the British (Un) intelligence Service(s) that Russia ran out of missiles in March, 2022!

Who is 'We'? You haven't been told any such thing, you just imagined that you had.

Let's try honesty for once.

Give it a go then champ, just for once.

"Russia has repeatedly attacked civilian infrastructure far from the front lines,"

Machiavellianism at work!

Ukraine started it by bombing the Kersh Bridge, a civilian infrastructure they had been warned NOT to target.

The US most certainly blew up the Nord Stram Pipes!

Were those two legitimate military targets?!

How could Russia launch ANY missiles anyway???

We've been told ad nauseam by the Us and the British (Un) intelligence Service(s) that Russia ran out of missiles in March, 2022!

High energy bill,social unrest,and generally misery,for people living in Europe

Yrral

Their no fool ,like a European fool, reaping what they sowed with Putin

What did they sow?

3 ( +8 / -5 )

Russia won't stop..

Sure they will when they get tired of dying. Tired of burying their kids, get sick of not being able to take western holidays, run out of tanks, missiles, etc, they will in fact stop and go home.

Tanks and patriots won't save Zelensky..

The Russians themselves would beg to differ as seen by their freak outs every time the UA gets better weapons

President comedian, negotiate peace before ir's too late..

Spoken like Neville Chamberlain in 38! If it was Alaska, you wouldn’t say this.

And the ship has sailed on the comedian trope. This “comedian” is kicking Putin’s Russian ass.

Why order men to either certain death or capture for a base that has zero strategic value?

In terms of certain death or capture, you’re mistaking Russians for Ukrainians.

And your basic premise of being encircled, yeah, I’ll believe the Russians have that level of competence when it’s demonstrated.

As for why, the US has been making the same point but it’s their land and they want to keep it.

The question remains what kind of sociopath would order his men to the certain death of RUSSIANS for no strategic value?

Nemo, nobody ever disputed Putin was a sociopath,he is the same sociopath that made trillion from the same fools,that continue too finance his war,and who are the crazy ones,the West who continue too but his oil and gas

This headline must come as no surprise.

Russia has repeatedly attacked civilian infrastructure far from the front lines, leaving millions of Ukrainians without power, heat or water for days at a time in the middle of winter.

If EU,UK,US Japan, all nations that value the human right, believed to belong to every person regardless of nationality, that so many lives were sacrificed in two world wars.

Then the time is now to stand up to the tyranny, despotism of the Governments of Russia and China.

The cost could mean many will pay the ultimate price.

The Russian Government has brought the global community to this point.

Ukraine must be supported not with words but with action. Ukraine freedom is all our Freedom, yes, is worth fighting for.

Ask that sociopathic PAB hiding behind the walls of the Kremlin.

You are already on the road,with this clown Zelensky,as an opening lackey act

-12 ( +2 / -14 )

Feels lime the end game. Poor Ukraine sacrificed on the altar of geopolitics.

-7 ( +4 / -11 )

Now Russia is using POWs to fight. Guess what?! Time to quit and go home.

If you are freeloading like Ukraine and not paying your Condo fees,you booted out of the association

-13 ( +2 / -15 )

The war is going so well that even Russian state media allows that Russian soldiers are refusing to fight or are attacking each other.

It seems Wagner Group cannot even rely on convicts and are now threatening longer sentences or additional charges if they do not join up to get blown to Hell.

5 ( +10 / -5 )

"Gains ground"? How many meters paid for with the lives of how many aggressors?

Of course, RuSSia once again destroyed civilian infrastructure, power stations and so on.

Whimps, all they are! Terrorizing the civilian population, attempting a genocide!

But they will fail, Ukrainians fight for their peace and freedom, RuSSians for a dictator!

Russia is a terrorist state under the leadership of a terrorist!

Ukraine prevails!

The patriots were decided to be sent less than 2 months ago. I don't think they're even in Ukraine yet. Who's the one pushing fiction?

The game-changing Patriots that the media touted 5 months ago don't seem to have changed the game.

And the sockless Russians, who have no ammo, no engines in their trucks and have no idea what they are fighting for... are advancing.

Fictio cedit veritati

Fiction yields to Truth
