    Given this was supposed to be about de-nazifying Ukraine they've kinda messed up by making the nazi unit of the defence forces look like heroes.

      Edit - the ERA was stuffed with blocks of wood, not cardboard.
      Yeah, I dont know about that. Could be they got "misplaced" as you say.

        • I didn't hear anything about this when it happened the other day but its good that even though
          it lasted only a few minutes probably, the message was up there.

          Russians just need to see a lot more of these messages and stories though.

          • I've not watched that clip, but I'd read earlier in the week it was actually staff at Lenta.ru who had published coverage to their own site and taken down the state prepped stories. They were subsequently arrested of course. They had the wherewithal to launch the internet archive/wayback machine to scrape their own site though so as an archive was made of it. The stories they published apparently only lasted minutes on the website, but were archived so as a record exists of what they published.

            The TV schedule may have been hackers, or staff at some intermediary company involved with the maintenance of the EPG - who knows.

            Either way it's good to see internal resistance and failures of state control over media outlets.

              Yeah that's what they say happened in that clip.
              Two staff members at that website still had the passwords to get in where they uploaded the material.

              Unfortunately there will need to be a lot more people like that doing something similar.

              • Question for those who know more about the military hardware.

                What would a Hercules EC130J have been doing? Wikipedia talks about it being some sort of broadcast thing for psyops.

                Flew over a while ago, distinctive sound and we weren't directly underneath.

                    • Well as expected the Swedes are now all in on joining NATO. Putin has really made a haims of it all at this stage.

                      • Russia: Ukraine - dont join NATO. And we dont plan to invade you. [INVADES]

                        Also Russia: Finland/Sweden - dont join NATO, we wont invade you. WHY ARE YOU JOINING NATO????

                          • Renault has sold its Moscow plant that made Lada to Russia

                            https://www.bbc.com/news/business-61463874

                            It seems they didn't get much choice in the matter, taking a 2.2 Billion hit
                            in the process.
                            They have up to six years to buy it back though, I presume only if Russia stops
                            invading countries in the meantime.

                            Edit: MaccyD's are also selling up and bugging out of there.
