At least three Ukrainian civilians have been killed and 20 others wounded in the latest artillery barrages from the Russian military,

If the above is factual, it's another example of Putin's brutal armyof invaders attacking civilians. And No, anti-democracy/anti-west/pro-Putin national socialism supporters, I do not believe each of the civilians was a heavily armed Nazi, nor that they were hiding weapons of mass destruction under their beds.

Russian military personnel go back across the border your dictator Putin ordered you to cross, and tend to your homes and families there. How many Russian citizens have been martyred for Saint Vlad in his holy war aided by Iran and China and who knows who else so far, or has he and have his media publicly admitted there have been any Russian deaths.

 He also vowed to expand arms sales to Russian allies,

Where will warmonger Putin push for his next war? Will it be a nearby nation, , or an oil state father afield? Putin wants to be the globe's leader of the fossil economy, a modern era Napoleon controlling huge territories through control of fossil fuels. Next time you turn the ignition on your vehicle, know you're making Putin, the Ayatollah, MbS and MbZ, plus the west's ruling caste richer and more powerful while you and your family are breathing toxic fumes for them. https://www.news-medical.net/health/What-are-the-Health-Effects-of-Exhaust-Emissions.aspx

Yrral,

And who will be the winner (if there is one at all)?

Please facts, not some Russian propaganda!

Both sides should avoid shelling civilians.

From 24 February 2022, when the Russian Federation’s armed attack against Ukraine started, to 24 July 2022, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) recorded 12,272 civilian casualties in the country: 5,237 killed and 7,035 injured.

I am wondering when the Ukrainians will shoot back directly into Russia?

Russia must understand what they started in the hard way.

Just shoot some missiles into Russia, and you will see how fast the things will change.

The problem is that shooting directly at Russia would provide Putin with exactly the pretext he wants to say that the existence of the Russian state is under existential threat, thus justifying the use of nuclear weapons. And say he fires a "small" nuclear missile and devastates Kyiv...Is the West really going to respond in kind, risking the end of civilisation?

Zelenskyy dismissed the heads of three regional branches of Ukraine’s top security agency, SBU, in the Kyiv, Lviv and Tarnopil regions. Zelenskyy’s office didn’t elaborate on the reasons behind the move.

They are being fired because they are voicing the opinion that they are fighting a lost cause. They have gone off the NATO/Ukrainian nationalist playbook.

I don't think so.

And additional, the Russians are so completely insane and full of madness, that they will not hesitate anyway to use nuclear weapons, for any single small reason.

But if a war you started will come back in front to your own door and into your own house, the people who are living inside that house will start to think and realise, what they, or better say their housekeepers, started and in which situation they were brought into by these insane full of madness housekeepers.

And then hopefully the nice Russians, if they do still exists and are still living in that house, will start to bring their insane mass murdering government and all their supporters to fall.

Monty...

If they did this Russia could then be at war not involved in a "special military operation". There is actually quite a difference.

Mr. Kipling

This is a war!!!

Started by a mass murdering, killing innocent people including women and children, and even raping young girls.

This insane war was started by Russia!

And I can not say it enough times; Russia, and all his followers and supporters, has to be taken into responsibility for what they started and for what they are doing, and they have to pay the highest price for that!

Hard for you to believe but in many ways Russia is actually playing softball. They are keeping the power on, trains running, supply lines in the west are left open etc.... OK, life in Ukraine is not Disneyland but it could be a lot worse. That's the difference between war and SMO.

Shooting at Putin,is the only thing ,that gonna stop Ukrainain from being obliterated

I don't think that even Putin in his wildest & wettest dreams would believe that there are people out there who still believe this. Especially someone who isn't in danger of being arrested for referring to it as a war. Remarkable levels of duty to his cause you are showing.

Do you also believe that the not-a-war-at-all is to 'denazify' Ukraine?

These guys were the same ones who cheered Soviet tanks rolling into Prague in ‘68. There is a name for them, I just forget what it is.

you prefer the Kipling surrender & bow to the Russian masters playbook ?

Meanwhile, Putin looks towards North Korea for support in Russia’s barbaric war against Ukraine.

The level of historical ignorance by some commentators is mind-boggling. It seems in their world, evil dictator Putin one fine day, without any reason, decided to invade the peaceful, united nation of Ukraine that has long existed and has not done anything wrong. No history, no context, no idea of exising treaties and violations. Of course the shallow media reporting supports this, but should one not feel obliged to gather a little background information before opining?

@Willib

It feels that you wanted to tell us all of the valid reasons for Putin invading and annexing large parts of Ukraine, destroying cities and murdering thousands.

But you just couldn’t bring yourself to do it, and in the end we are just left with not much really.

Fictional long distance call from Putin to Kim:

Putin; I don't know what else to do! Do you have any suggestions?

Kim; Bombing schools, churches, hospitals, orphanages and residential areas . . . all check. Terrorizing to civilians with acts of murder, rape and torture . . . again, all check. Concentration/labor camps, again check. No, you're doing everything I would be doing in your shoes. Oh, I have The Donald on the other line here and he says 'Hi!' and that you're a genius.
