The little circus of the G7 telling the Great Red Dragon of the East what to do..
It reminds me of how the decadent Roman Empire asked the growing invincible power of the Eastern barbarians "please be kind with us"..
In principle this is correct but the Romans fought the northern barbarians who ran away from the eastern barbarians. Well, that is the theory. No one knows why the Germanic tribes en-masse suddenly appeared at the north east boundary of the empire. They were running from something but what was it?
The only thing that is certain is that Europeans and their decedents in North America and Australia like to wax-lyrical about the Roman Empire's civilization and technology but the civilization and technology in China at the time was about 1000 years more advanced.

And Russia doesn't seem to need any occupying troops whatsoever, once Azov is expelled from an area, all fighting stops.
And here you have the crux of the situation. During the war the region was famous for furious partisan attacks. The Nasties had to divert whole divisions from the front to deal with it. This time around, nothing at all. Why is that?

Here is a radical idea: Close the tax loopholes rich people use to frequent hostess bars or somewhat more that that at tax payers expense. Immediately 10s of 1000s of hot chics will be living a normal life, having normal relationships and even the rich people will be at home with their wives much more having more kids.

An evacuee from a few days earlier was interviewed by a German publication. She said the Azov Battalion was holding them hostage and using them as human shields. She also said according to her the Ukranian state has died.

do you think Sweden is going to join NATO?
the only certainty is that the general population is overwhelmingly against it. But we are talking about NATO here. Not as if they care what the general population wants. The government has ruled out a referendum on the issue.
I have heard that the Russians have a keen interest in Gotland. Looking at the map, that island looks quite strategically located!
I have heard NATO propagandists have grubby little minds and this comment goes a long way to confirming that.

Remember when Russia's Ministry of Defence posted, "irrefutable proof" of the US aiding Islamic State
US/NATO was at war with Islamic state for about 3 years, during which time the latter greatly increased it's influence, territory and power. Then the Russians got involved, Islamic State was crushed, much to the chagrin of Western powers and the "free press" and Trump turns around and says "we defeated IS."

Now, also help the defenders to reach a safe haven!
@klausdorth wants the Azov Battalion, good guys and kindred spirits, to be set free.... What a surprise!
At least those who are wounded, as has been established by international law.
Say what? International law states wounded combatants must be set free or only neo-***i combatants?

A women who was evacuated 2 days ago was interviewed and the video was posted on Der Speigal webiste. She said the Azov Battalion, good guys and democrats according to corporate media, was holding her and her kids hostage and keeping them as human shields. She also said, according to her, the Ukrainian state has died.
Der Speigal quickly deleted the video when it become apparent some rogue editor had allowed it to be put up.

I still don't get why Russia is so obsessed with the lands. The move is against all odds, at the expense of almost everything. They will end up giving away Crimea to Ukraine, and Northern Territories to Japan. Putin will be brought to The Hague or hell...
This is NATO sponsored political erotica.
Putin is "obsessed" with those lands because Russians who have lived in those lands forever are once again victims of fascist aggression and no Russian leader who wants to remain alive can let that pass without striking back.

Looks like Moldova may be getting a taste of a de-nazification special operation soon. Ugh.
The liberation of massively pro-Russian and anti-Nazi Odessa is the logical next step. That by default opens a land corridor between Russia and Moldova.

Along with 25 Slovakian technicians training an unknown number of Ukranians on how to use them.

30 % of the population have a positive opinion of the Ukranian Insurgent Army...... It's something the corporate media doesn't like to talk about.
One US General was already captured in Mariupol, fighting with the Azov Battalion. NATO still has some people important enough to send two choppers in, both of which were shot down and then a few nights later, try again with one chopper which was also shot down.

Warning: A NATO/Internet wide National Security Letter has been issued blocking all reporting of the alleged capture of an American general in Mariupol.
*Reports from our friends in the Pentagon say “something’s up” and p**anic has set in at the White House. Minutes ago, the general showed up on his Linkedin account and we are told that the ranks of retirees and crisis actors (yes they exist) are being scoured for fat bald types that can be green-screened into a show and tell with Zelensky, believed to be hiding in Poland.*

Oh hang on, that's a Russia-backed seperatist, Senior Lieutenant Roman Vorobyov of the "Somalia" motorized rifle battalion, receiving an award from DPR leader Denis Pushilin. So... The Russians are the neo-nazis?
Yep, seen it before. Nevermind the fact it's from a reenactment of a WW2 battle which had a number of DPR fighters dress up as Nazis.
The utter tyranny of imperialism. Feeding the average moron this kind of image, suggesting the irreconcilable enemies of Nazism are in fact neo-Nazis.

"A battalion is a military unit, typically consisting of 300 to 1,000
Serious? Azov Battalion is the 'name' of the neo-Nazi group. It's not merely one battalion. The true number is a mystery for a few reasons:
It's not publicly available.
A number of it's members are in because of the high salaries paid directly by the imperialist powers, not because they are genuine, convinced neo-Nazis. Though the leadership at every level are hardline neo-Nazis.
And finally because they have been given a frightening blood-letting over the past 5 weeks. At least 20k killed in Mariupol and an unknown number captured and in or on their way to Siberian gulags.

Ruble has clawed back 100% of it's losses due to the imperialist economic war. Now they've started cutting interest rates and are warning of more because the ruble is stronger than they want.
Japan is on the losing side. Doesn't matter now. May as well double down because any possibility of any concessions in the islands issue is as dead as 20k+ Azov Battalion neo-Nazis in Mariupol.

It's like a giant social experiment. The ruling regimes and their corporate media seeing how much they can get away with. How much the general public will go along with whatever they say even if evidence points to the opposite they are presenting.
If it happened in Iraq, Syria, Serbia, Libya, Afghanistan, the bombs would already be falling and no one would talk about how it started. It's a little more complicated with Russia. I think what they'll do is move onto another "atrocity" so everyone forgets about this one and then another and another and etc.
They can't go to war with Russia. So I presume the purpose is to condition the public to accept rapidly declining living standards and shortages up to an including food shortages.
The experiment was successfully completed long before now. They can get the majority to believe anything they want.

The US has a warehouse full of Russian Engines to support the remaining Atlas V launches
The Russians said they had a lot of promise but in their opinion, it was easier to scrap them and start anew. Some Americans liked their chances of fixing them and bought them cheap.
So far the Russians are right. Th American side has wasted a huge amout of money and resources trying to fix them to no avail so far.

Germans should just ally with China and Russia at this point.
Germans have their own imperialist ambitions. They hate being under the American thumb. A bloc that includes China, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, Soviet Central asia, even Afghanistan at this point, should allow the German liberation of France, Spain and UK.

Twas the will of the people. The election in 2019 was likewise democratic. No such democracy exists in Russia.
Good child. The secret police and ruling class are very happy with you.
Any regime, no matter how dictatorial and illegitimate the secret police and ruling class likes is 'democratic'. Likewise any coup, no matter how flagrant, is 'the will of the people'.

Yeah I guess if your not a military super power with nukes and the ability to invade others you should just be ignored because your opinion is worthless. Like most of the rest of the planet.
And a state built on genocide, is always quick to join US wars of aggression but sees fit to run around lecturing major and far more civilized powers about, 'human rights'.
