    While I have very little time for the UN Security Council and how utterly useless it is,
    that is a very sadistic joke if they are allowed to sit in that seat.

    Instead of Russia getting their lying, meddling ar$e$ into that chair they should be turfed out of the place.

    Secret documents have been leaked by a former employee who worked for a company called Vulcan who have been employed by the Russian government to launch fake news,misinformation,malware and launch cyber attacks on Western countries.
    Literary cancer of the world. Russia just proves time and time again what are their intentions and why they existing for.

    Saw a video to that effect on youtube the other day. All the common brands still there, some just rebranded and selling the same stuff. The wealthy areas are in a bubble and are protected and the poorer areas were bad enough before the war that they cant really get much worse.

They genuinely believe that.

    Curious Leopard is curious. (its from a lame meme. The important thing is it is in Ukraine, with Ukrainian ERA on top of its original armour. The UA is not taking any chances. Thought they really need to protect the top from drone strikes...)

    How wouldnt the population be stupid enough to wonder why they need 400k "volunteers". What happened the last 250k lads who got called up?

    It looks like things are getting little bit quiet. Russian troops are getting absolutely hammered around Bakhmut which still holds. The last two days we see a decline in dead Russian infantry which is in line with decreasing activity along the front. Things are exploding more and more often in occupied Crimea.

    Meanwhile Putler is preparing to mobilize 400,000 soldiers under the guise of "volunteers".

    Well Vlad does have a lot of nostalgia and fondness for how the Russian Empire used to be...
    so makes a lot of sadistic sense, in his very warped eyes anyway.

    Not that I read The Sun, but I seen this pop up. It is great that the likes of The Sun reports this and uses the language that it does.
