This morning, Pat McCrory got on @945PTI and said Putin was stupid.
I’m now following the Russian MoD on Telegram. Sweet.
“Civilians of Mariupol managed to escape from the city, where the local Ukrainian authorities are dysfunctional, and the nationalists are holding people hostage, using them as a human shield.”
As we watch Yurp backtrack on their Russian sanctions, rather than destroy their economies, it is important to remember that ideologues, lacking imagination and therefore empathy and moral clarity (hat tip to John Michael Greer), like Trudeau, always invoke the harshest punishment, until they are proclaimed to be illegal and stupid.
Russia invaded Ukraine three days before Ukraine was scheduled to attack Donbass.
According to the Russian MoD, they now have a bunch of Javelins, NLAWs and Stingers in their possession. Indeed, their policing of these armaments will keep them from migrating to Europe.
Russia has established virtual diplomatic communications with the government of Ukraine and are in near constant contact, in efforts to protect civilians by evacuating them through humanitarian corridors.
From the Russian MoD:
“In total, over the past day, aviation and air defence of the Russian Aerospace Forces shot down 16 air targets: 1 Su-24 and Su-25 aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force, 1 Mi-8 helicopter and 13 Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles, including 6 Bayraktar TB-2.
Operational-tactical, army and unmanned aviation hit 136 military infrastructure assets of Ukraine, including: 7 command posts and communication centres, 4 anti-aircraft missile systems, 3 multiple launch rocket systems, 4 radar stations for reconnaissance, target illumination and targeting of S-300 anti-aircraft missile system, 1 electronic warfare station, 4 ammunition and fuel depots and 72 areas of military equipment concentration.
Three hangars containing 4 Ukrainian Su-25 assault aircraft, 1 Mi-24 and 5 Mi-8 helicopters were destroyed at a military airfield near Kramatorsk.
In total, 156 unmanned aerial vehicles, 1,306 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 127 multiple launch rocket systems, 471 field artillery and mortars, as well as 1,054 units of special military vehicles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were destroyed during the operation.”

“Russian troops have been instructed to stay out of the fields, as it’s almost time for Spring planting.”
The Saker: Russian special military operation in the Ukraine – Day 19
“Russian forces finally decided to, shall we say, change pace, and by all account the intensity of the artillery, aerial bombing and missile barrage which hit the Ukie forces in the town of Avdeevka was absolutely unprecedented and following this barrage the LDNR forces broke through 8 kilometers of just about the most heavily defended sectors in the entire theater or operations. The Ukrainian 95th Airmobile Brigade (one of the most combat capable unit of the Ukrainian Army!) was defending this sector. According to reports, this entire brigade was basically wiped out.
So, not only did Russian encircle the entire Ukrainian forces in an operational cauldron, she then proceeded to cut that single force into two smaller cauldrons (but both still contained in the bigger, operational, cauldron) and now as a show of force, she destroyed the most combat capable Ukrainian unit in the most heavily defended town.
The level of approval of the actions of Vladimir Putin, last week rose highly, and therefore in a new study digit moderate – just 74.2%.
The Nazis wanted some areas to be declared Judenfrei/Judenrein while their modern-day heirs clearly want the world to be Russenfrei/Russenrein.
This profound acceptance of the total lack of value of any Russian life is now something very common in Zone A, and it will only get worse since “Biden” will now explain away all his (long list) of failures on Russia, Russians and personally Putin (the “new Hitler”, of course!).
Russians everywhere should fully expect to be shown less mercy by their western neighbors than the mercy the German people could expect from Stalin during WWII.
The last time that the Urkonazis were losing badly, they did MH-17.”
From the Global Times in the comments:
At Monday’s routine news conference of the Chinese Foreign Ministry, the spokesperson for the ministry rebutted the US’ inconsistent and flawed responses regarding its biological laboratories in Ukraine, urging a full clarification of its bio-military activities within and outside its borders.
According to the US submission to the 2021 Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) Meeting of States Parties, the US has 26 laboratories and other cooperative facilities in Ukraine.
“Does Ukraine know what the US is doing in Ukraine?” Zhao asked.
Russia found more than 30 biological laboratories affiliated with the US on the territory of Ukraine and that the relevant items were urgently destroyed, but traces of plague, anthrax, and other pathogens were found.
The US is the only country that opposes the establishment of a verification mechanism for the Biological Weapons Convention. At the same time, for decades the US has been accusing other countries of not complying with the treaty, and even sanctioning and using force against these countries.
We’re looking at Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard for 2024.
From the comments at The Saker:
If you visit Gab (main Twitter alternative for Trumpers), you will see that the majority there supports Russia or at least want America to not intervene in the war.
You are correct! I am a proud American nationalist – Trumper, and I do support Putin and Russia in this Ukraine Special Operation. Clear out all the Ukrainian neo-Nazi scum who have been shelling and murdering the civilians in the DPR and LPR these past 8 years! Destroy all of the US funded bio weapons labs (or “research” facilities as Victoria Nuland called them)! Totally destroy the money laundering capabilities within Ukraine that funds all of the corrupt American and other world “elite”!
You are correct about the Trump supporters. My family is filled with Trump supporters. Two weeks after the Russian commenced the action in the Ukraine, my brother called me cold turkey and said that he hoped I was supporting the “right” side in the Ukraine war. He explained that Russia was clearly right and all the rest of my family agreed. My brother not only supported Russia but ordered pro-Russia and pro-Putin bumper stickers and tee shirts, a bunch of RT merchandise and even applied for a UniPass card when Visa and Mastercard disabled usage of their cards in Russia. Trump supporters were endlessly reviled by the American media for over four years, including the culmination in 2020 when all networks (including the supposedly conservative Fox) said that Biden won fair and square. Trump supporters have learned for years not to trust the media and I predict that they either are or largely will be soon on Russia’s side.
We live in America, but unlike most of the US population, we heartily approve of Russia, President Putin and what they are doing in Ukraine.
We have lived long enough to realize how terribly evil the US system has become. We deeply agree with the sentiments that Russians have towards the US & its allies.
My family is religious conservative American. I have been the one in the family that defends and explains the Russian side of things. But recently my father asked me not to defend Russia around him. Fox News has always been controlled opposition and apart from Tucker Carlson, the American evangelical conservatives are brainwashed into the MIC war hypnosis. Those of us who see the light in America are going to be demonized for merely trying to see the Russian point of view in all this. It’s a dark time, and probably will get a lot darker here before it gets better.
From Old Toad in the comments:
The devil’s best trick is to make people believe that he does not exist.
Biden is a titular leader, a Globalist pedophile versus Putin a Orthodox Christian nationalist, the powers of darkness will try to destroy the Christian and his people. Evil will not prevail. Ultimately the Lord our Savior Jesus Christ will win. Keep your faith strong!
The psyop against Russia, Russia, Russia has been going on for years here, overthrew an elected president.
The people in charge of the US are destroying the country, they cannot help themselves, what evil does. The mRNA clot shots are killing the useful idiots, innocents, for many the future and children. Food shortages, societal collapse and a civil war are imminent here, plain to see. The US is very likely to see a major population reduction. Evil loves company and does not want to go out alone.
The future for Russia is bright from my point of view.
I love my country, I fear what the good Lord of the Light will rightly do to those of us who turn away from him.
