    Y'know - I watched the video in the link, with that man with his head taped to the concrete block on the floor, shortly before they bludgeoned him to death. Can't help but feel pity for such a minor player in this war, whose series of life choices and a set of circumstances largely dictated by others led him to such a brutal end.

    Kremlin plotting to liquidate Lukashenko
    Sources within the Russian military leadership say the Kremlin has made a decision on a radical “solution” to the issue of dragging Belarus into Russia’s armed aggression against Ukraine. — Ukrinform.

    Also, in the weird corner: When they film Putin, they increase his head size:

    Apparently, this has been happening a while now, which is why he always looks like his head has swollen leading to conspiracy theories, like him getting steroids or other such things.

    Maybe they take photos of Putin when he is alone, and then put Putin's head onto some other guy who is in fact meeting the actors.
    Talk about double paranoia.

    A modern version of Verdun - whoever thought we would be back to this insanity in the early 21st century.

    The fighting in Bakhmut continues...





    The fighting is mostly two access points, an old water tower and a gas station. (You can see both on Google).

    Some of the photos (that I wont link to) show the edge of a forest into a clearing. There are Russian soldiers bodies' laid out as far as the eye can see. The Wagners are pushing wave after wave of mobinks into killing fields of cross firing Ukrainian machine guns, mortar and artillery. The battle has been raging there for 5 months now, and not a single kilometer of land has swapped hands.

    Coming back to a post a few pages back: This is an important lesson. It's not only about how you want to fight a war, it is also how your enemy wants to fight a war.
    If your enemy wants a WWI (nevermind WWII) war, you have to be prepared for that too.

    [edit: here is a low res drone shot of the russians: https://twitter.com/mhmck/status/1594279065544187904 ]

    Armed police or military posted at virtually all Russian embassies in EU countries.
    I feel bad for them having to stand around outside in colder climates whilst Russian staff sit inside in the warmth so if passing stop for a quick chat to break the monotony or bring them a coffee etc

    At the start of the war the Garda were posted outside the ambassadors residence in marked cars. I guess the ambassador didn't like the Garda colours so now the Garda are in what looks like a portacabin and unmarked cars just across the road from the entrance.
