    In the picture - a request for French citizenship, which was filled out by Elena Zelenskaya - the wife of the "chief patriot" of Ukraine.
    By the way, she has been shopping in Nice for days.

    The Ukrainian publication "Zerkalo Nedeli" publishes 6 conditions put forward by Russia for Ukraine:

    1. Refusal to move to NATO. Neutral status of Ukraine. One of the guarantors of which Russia is ready to become.

    2. Russian is the second state language. Repeal of all laws restricting it.

    3. Recognition of Crimea by Ukraine as Russian.

    4. Recognition by Ukraine of the independence of the DPR and LPR within the administrative boundaries of the regions (including territories controlled by Ukraine until February 24).

    5. Denazification. Prohibition of the activities of ultranationalist, Nazi and neo-Nazi parties and public organizations, the abolition of existing laws on the glorification of Nazis and neo-Nazis.

    6. Demilitarization of Ukraine. Complete rejection of offensive weapons.

    He was shady af before the war, I wonder why he started shooting first, probably afraid of "saboteurs". Could also be power consolidation, but so far it seems another paranoid accident.

    Also, a Tupolev drone (141/143) seems to have flown all the way to Zagreb, Croatia. No joke. Crashed there late last night with its recovery parachutes deployed. No injuries reported, but a lot of surprised Croatian faces for sure.

    This will be interesting to see what it's about. My first thoughts are 1. Ukrainian attempt to get NATO involved somehow, or 2. a Russian decoy that was supposed to bait Ukrainian SAMs but that somehow flew all the way through. It had to have been launched from Belarus in that case, as its range is not sufficient to reach Croatia from the Russian mainland. From Ukraine it has enough range.

    Either way, it must also have flown through an entire NATO country in the first place (Hungary, Romania) to have reached Croatia (also NATO). So that makes me wonder about the state of the air defenses there.

    Croatian authorities say the drone came from the east and crossed the airspaces of Moldova, Romania and Hungary before entering Croatian ditto and crashing in the Zagreb area. That seems to more or less rule out a Russian launch IMO, as it would have come from the Odessa oblast or so given the maximum range of the system. Even if Russian patrols might be present at the far end, the Tu-141/143 is a big, bulky system and nothing you carry along just like that.

    But it also makes zero sense for Ukraine to launch one in the completely opposite direction of where the combat is, unless it was exactly that - an attempt at provoking NATO into acting. Completely bonkers idea, but I wouldn't put it past them.

    Also, as noted, air defense forces of four (!) countries failed to intercept it along the way. Okay, Moldova's ditto aren't much to brag about, but the other three are all NATO and all have decent radars and supersonic fighter jets that ought to have been on some kind of alert given what's going down right now.

    Perhaps the Ukrainians counted on it being shot down somewhere along the way too, instead of flying that far. Pure guesses. I expect some kind of proper briefing in time, which will hopefully help clearing things up.
