The battle is the closest Moscow has come to achieving one of its stated objectives since its forces were defeated trying to capture Kyiv in March

Russian never tried to capture Kyiv, disinformation at its best

You're right -- they didn't mention opposition to banning imports of crab meat for kani-tours, so now people here can stuff their faces with crab while civilians in Ukraine are being shelled, women raped and murdered, and hospitalized and shelters being targeted. You're right, Rodney, they aren't saying enough.

smith-san, you forgot 10,000 civilians killed by ukranian forces from 2014 to 2022.... I'm sure you wanted to write that but something happened and you forgot

The classic 'other-guy' line from a thug caught doing a crime. Someone else did it, Russia has long done the same thing in Syria, and Putin's media pushed the other-guy defense there, too. At this point Putin claiming his invasion can be stopped with some form of i'f', might be believed by those as insane as he has shown to be.


Russia cleaned Syria from Isis, what movie did you see sir ???

And just another day of Putin-adoration from our far-right friends...evidently their dictator-love knows no bounds...

Yesterday they admitted he is not only their hero, but "their good Lord" also... If Trump heard that, he'd turn from orange to red with envy...

One can only imagine if they had been around seventy years ago what praise they'd be singing for America's enemies during WWII...

the only far right thing here is the Azov battalion on the national guard of ukraine

In 2014, the regiment gained notoriety after allegations emerged of torture and war crimes as well as neo-Nazi sympathies and usage of associated symbols by the regiment itself, as seen in their logo featuring the Wolfsangel, one of the original symbols used by the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich.

IJA never invaded Russian soil. Soviet was the invader ignoring not only non-aggression pact but also Potsdam declaration by detaining disarmed surrenders into slave labor camp for years after war ended.

JAPAN picked her when she started winning. I was watching her for two years before she won anything. Never heard a peep out of any Japanese person. Not my co-workers or friends. Why should she have to change for them?

they started caring about her cause she choosed japanese passport (in order to play Davis Cup and going to Olympic games).

I speak japanese better than her, enough said... (and my japanese is a little more than basic)

She was the one who turned on the olympic flame, she didn't deserve at all.

And of course, she supports blm, shame of her

Posted in: Man dies in Japan after receiving dose of recalled Moderna vaccine See in context

The truth is vaccine at this stage is still experimental, it takes 3 years of study to be approved.

Currently who gets a shot just makes part of this experimental part.

Posted in: Half of Japan's population has received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

Maybe you've not heard, but there's a hell of a lot more people in hospital or dead around the world due to covid.

excuse me, can you provide me with some data ?

cause if I check online I just see that less than 4,5 million people on planet Earth died for Corona, are those numbers "a hell of lot people" ? not considering that 7,6 Billion, not million, people are living on planet Earth.

do the math to see the 0,00...% of people died by the virus

Get vaccinated people.

no thanks

Wow. That is nice!

Very big progress!

Hopefully end of the year we reach 80% and can start to go back to our normal life.

which normal life ? Already Delta variant infects who got a shot, then in Autumn they are already talking about Lamba variant, this story will never end, human beings becoming like a PC where you have to update your antivirus (take a vaccin) every year

Stop this "let's return to normal life" thing, we will never return like 2019 or before

Posted in: Vaccination site for younger people to open in Tokyo's Shibuya district See in context

The LDP is too stingy when it comes to doling out money to anyone but themselves,cronies and corporate partners; but what about a 100 dollar (10,000 yen) gift for getting vaccinated like in the US? The young people can get their shot then have a night on the town. Economic stimulus.

with locals closing at 20:00 I would hardly say "a night on the town"

Posted in: Tokyo counts cost of $15 billion pandemic Olympics See in context

Tokyo and many other parts of the country are under virus state of emergency, and only around a third of the country is fully vaccinated as the Delta variant fuels surging infections.

so why I have to get vaccinated if I can get Delta variant ?

completely nonsense

Posted in: Japan starts accepting applications for 'vaccine passports' See in context

If a piece of paper in English can maybe make it easier to cross borders, then why not? I have not been back to my own country and I have not seen my beloved children for approaching two years.

(The vaccination itself is no big deal and I feel absolutely no different after receiving two. I continue to double-mask in public. By the same token I know that I can still catch this thing depending on the circumstances.)

why not ? cause it's a discrimination

the vaccine is not mandatory and anyone can choose to take the shot or not, with the vaccine passport you are forced to take the vaccine if you want to come back to your country and visit your relatives.

(The vaccination itself is a big deal, if you check carefully on the internet, and I feel very well without it. I continue to go out without a mask. By the same token I know that I can still catch this thing in the same way I could have caught influenza in the previous years).

Posted in: U.S. airlines say COVID-19 variants aren't hurting bookings See in context

great, go to travel and spread the variants, cause that's what the vaccines are doing, creating variants, then new vaccines will put on market then new variants will appear and so on, McAffee and pc viruses showed the way.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 1,832 coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 4,943 See in context

the rising in numbers is due to Delta variation


current vaccines don't protect from Delta variation (neither will do from Epsilon, Beta, Gamma, Theta and so on)


vaccination is pointless, variations are coming out because the vaccines force the virus to a mutation and so now we have Delta, Epsilon and start learning the Greek alphabet

Posted in: NHL calendar includes break for Beijing Games: report See in context

To note, the Phenonix Suns have one player in the finals and the Millwakee Bucks have 2. After finishing their game 7 (great series by the way) the players will fly out to Japan and have maybe 3 days and 1 full practice with Team USA before it’s game against France….not the best for recovery or health.

Bucks in 6 ;)

Posted in: The new kids on their blocks at the Tokyo Olympics See in context

Love all those sports but don't think they belong in the Olympics. Sports inflation is one reason the cost of hosting the Games has skyrocketed. Clean house: eliminate all sports that were not in the, say, '32 Olympics.

why not in 1896 at this point ? lol

Are you capable of surfing or skateboarding?

of course he doesn't, if not he would have not written that

criticizing snowboard to be a sport when biathlon is part of the winter olympics, compare who goes skiing and shooting targets on weekends with who takes a board and go down a hill, which is the more popular actually ?
