Odessa is far from the frontlines so this is just more Russian terrorism.

Kyiv regime facility hit. Their rule is becoming shaky by the day.

Partisans also attacked a train. Known out-of-town militants car blew up too.

-8 ( +4 / -12 )

Again, and again, and again!

Russia doing what those marauders are so good at!

Destroying civilian infrastructure (oh, sorry, "that was a WAGNER assembly building", right?)

Terrorizing and killing civilians, among them little babies and children ("sorry, but we have to take care so the next generation can't 'provoke' us again", right?).

Russia is a terrorist state governed by that little Gremlin-dictator!

But .......

Ukraine prevails!

Pro-Russian warmongers continue to support Putin's War, even applauding civilian deaths and the destruction of civilian residences in a war which Putin started and can finish by pulling his baby-killing troops out of Ukraine and sending them back into Russia.

Russia is a huge country and does not need more territory, Putin and the Kremlin need to focus on solving the many problems within recognized Russian territory, not create problems near Russia's borders. Russia needs to learn to live on a planet which they do not fully control. Same with Russia's enabler China.

It’s true that this war is pointless. Russians have been making it up as they go along from before day one.

This war is pointless and it's time for a negotiated settlement that recognizes the legitimate concerns of both sides.

So Ukraine's concern is full independence under Zelenskyy backed by all of NATO's armaments (short of nukes). Sounds like a good starting point.

They were plotting to attack civilian targets in Crimea and beyond. This hard evidence of the German military scheming to destroy civilian infrastructure begs for an analogy to the country’s dark WWII-era past. History repeats itself.

He says on an article about an attack on Odessa and beyond.

drone was shot down by Ukrainian air defenses, and that the falling debris hit the apartment building.

back to this narrative again.

Biden didn’t have to get involved in this conflict, he chose to.

And it’s been confirmed that in the early days it could have been over already under a negotiation. but US and UK intervened to get their proxy war.

@Mr Kippling,

"No Russian leader or general ever stated this nonsense."

Wrong answer!

PUTAin clearly stated that it would be a 3-day-limited operation.

Not true. This is a made up story.

His "operation" is going on for 2 years already with little to no gains!

No gains? Have you not seen the land bridge to Crimea? Almost all of the Dombas area, 40% of Ukraines industrial capacity? No gains? LOL

400.000+ Russian marauders sent thru the meat grinder!

A figure that no serious observer, even Ukraine supporting ones think is anywhere close. But that figure is at the high end of estimate of Ukraine losses.

Several Russian fighter jets / bombers permanently grounded within the last couple of days.

True, but in the past 2 years Russia has built more planes than they have lost.

Moskva and other submarines created due to Ukraine's forces.

True, expensive losses but meaningless in the big picture. This is not a naval war. Ukraine does not have a navy.

Several high ranking Russian generals stopped breathing.

To be replaced by others. Just like the dead Ukrainian generals.

North Korea stopped providing Russia with ammunition. (Latest news)

Russia has the industrial capacity to make its own munitions. Ukraine?

The free western world standing more united and dedicated. (with minor exceptions - agreed!)

Exceptions? China, India, the global south infact all countries not US vassal states.

Ukraine receiving more military hardware in the long- and short run.

Now I know you don't really believe this? Its not just the congress holding up deliveries, half of the goods promised by Europe have not been delivered. They don't have it to deliver.

Again, How are they going to prevail? Under-maned, under-armed, underfunded, demoralized, going backwards and in 9 months the prospect of its biggest backer totally pulling the plug.

It was a NATO decision. You would stand by and allow Putin to invade Ukraine and slaughter its people.

"In total aid (military, financial and humanitarian combined), the European Union and its countries have provided the most to Ukraine, according to Kiel Institute, whereas the United States has by far provided the most in military aid."

The US has given Ukraine $28 billion in humanitarian aid and $46 billion in military aid.

Like Nero . . . Ukraine is in flames and the Republicans play their fiddle.

It is true the Ukrainians are on the back foot, but I do not hear any talk coming from them about surrender or capitulation.

As for the undermanned part, yes they are a smaller nation than russia but they sure gave the russians a bloody nose, much respect!

Outgunned goes with the territory and they have learnt to adapt quite well.

Can they win this war? probably not, but they are willing to go down swinging.

The "right wing" Americans should be ashamed of themselves.

If the USA backs away from this, they deserve to lose all respect and will fall just like the empires of past.

It was a NATO decision.

Biden could have said, No or at the very least responded by not taking the lead on this.

You would stand by and allow Putin to invade Ukraine and slaughter its people.

I would hope that Europe would use every last possible resource they have at their disposal to not see that happen.

"In total aid (military, financial and humanitarian combined), the European Union and its countries have provided the most to Ukraine, according to Kiel Institute, whereas the United States has by far provided the most in military aid."

That needs to change.

The US has given Ukraine $28 billion in humanitarian aid

And that’s enough.

and $46 billion in military aid.

I’m ok with that.

The "right wing" Americans should be ashamed of themselves.

No, should be proud of themselves for putting their nation and constituents first.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, we heard that crap for over 70 years

A popular piece of disinformation but doesn't hold water when you realize Russia was in spitting distance of Kyiv at the time.

Except you are not putting your country or it's people first because you are encouraging a conflict over Taiwan and further action against our treaty allies in Europe with your weakness.

You may or may not be surprised but a fair chunk of the world actually hates the US and it's allies are definitely starting to look at alternatives.

Except you know only the US has the numbers of armaments already manufactured to be useful.

No need to, not to the same old tune, repeatedly.

What? Then give us our music, food, produce agricultural products, planes, boats, computers, trucks, BBQ grills, military hardware, cancel all of your U.S. shows, close Euro-Disney, our fast food restaurants, our strawberries, our porn, all the cool reptiles and amphibians that kids like, Dinosaur bones if that’s the the case, protest and do it, cancel all of these things and a million more….

and it's allies are definitely starting to look at alternatives.

Hmm….seems like Europe doesn’t feel good being beholden to Russia or China, where to look at next….oh, I know…

Johnson is.

Oh, you think so?

I consider it a strength.
