Meanwhile, the Swiss stick to their guns so to speak
Yeah, sometimes they are neutral and sometimes not... they made AA gun ammo for Nazi Germany during WWII but wont make AA gun ammo for Nazi Kiev...
He himself is an oligarch. Does he have any kids which aren't involved in the SVO at present?
That gives what he said more impact I would think... easy for poor people to demand the rich and powerful get their hands dirty and take some risks, but for a rich person saying rich and powerful people should get more involved is something else.
I would guess if rich people are involved and there is a shortage of thermal scopes or helmets or whatever, they could fix that faster than any government department could...
Extremely relaxed security and local commanders, evidently. They should all be put on trail and made an example of. Saboteurs have probably escaped to Estonia by now, where they probably came from in the first place by nipping over the border and perhaps approaching the airbase from an unexpected direction. But in case they are found, there is only one punishment for plain clothes military personnel conducting acts of destruction during wartime and that is execution of course.
There are probably a million different targets they could attack with their terrorist bombs... if this is true then they found a juicy target, but they are always going to find something they can blow up and film themselves doing it... what a bunch of heros.
At the end of the day what is going to happen is some Russian are going to go apeshit about this inconvenience and demand action and extra security will be set up everywhere they can and probably a few extra cruise missiles and bombs are going to be delivered to their home country.
Their countrymen keep dying and their infrastructure will be taken apart piece by piece but all their successes just make Russia respond and the response generally does more damage to the Ukraine than anything the Ukraine has done or could do.
Really, you don't? Maybe if your head wasn't in the sand this whole time, you'd know how incompetent Russian leadership has been since the beginning of this so called SMO. ****-ups are happening on a weekly basis
Some local commander thinks 600km away is safe but it is Putins fault... obviously Putin told them they didn't have to patrol or guard anything if they didn't want to.
You betray yourself and your agenda... get rid of Putin and everything will be better... for the west.
Look at this for example, why would Putin even mention something like this?
He is outlining to the world that Russia is ready for peace talks and Kiev is not... this war continues because of Kiev and not because of Moscow.
Sounds like a pretty clear and obvious message.
If he wasn't the supreme leader of Russia, he would've got fired just like the countless generals that have been already.
You do understand that Russian generals are not allowed to quit and have to be fired to move to different posts or positions... in fact there is a western 5th columnist who is Russian who makes good propaganda every time Putin shifts people around because obviously him firing all those generals on such a regular basis is evidence of corruption or incompetence or whatever he wants to pretend is happening at the time.
It is funny, there is a blog called Russia defence policy that has a hard core anti Russian guy who had his name everywhere on the blog but now his name is gone and it does not mention his name... and has an Orc flag across the top of the main page... and he is rabidly anti Russian to the point of being ferral...
He used to love posting pages about Putin firing all these generals and what it might mean for Russia because obviously corruption and incompetence...
What a dick.
Well, hopefully someone submitted the footage to the Russian authorities. So that an investigation can be held at the airbase and see what the local MP's are doing.
Investigate and find out what actually happened and why and then take action... sensible and normal... but for a doomsayer they need blood and they need it right away to make everyone else in the country so afraid of making any mistakes they will simply do nothing and become paralysed and fucking useless because obviously initiative is punished.
Business mogul Oleg Tinkov renounces Russian citizenship.
He started to hate his Russian citizenship as soon as someone suggested his enormous wealth could be put to good use helping the Ukraine... will give up his country to hang on to his money... he certainly belongs in the west... I hope they take his money anyway.
