    It is absurd that Budavov is still alive and talking to journalists. It should have been eliminated a long time ago with an attack by Russian services.
    It is not difficult to locate it via satellite and launch an attack with a smart missile.

    Bufoonov is a bungling incompetent.  Kill him and Cocainsky might get someone competent in charge of military intel.  Same with the Ukrainian general staff.  The last thing I want are for them to get competent generals.[/quote]

I'll tell you something, in Buenos Aires (I don't live there but I know) it is full of Ukrainian women, some with their male ukros partners. Since they are white and blonde, and this is a very racist country, they are well received. While my country is 50 percent poor, it receives these stupid people without restrictions.
    They all seem to portray a liberal life without economic worries. Nationalist propaganda, homesexual woke propaganda. I have two theories: either they are couples of criminals from Azov or they are cowards with money who escaped from their country.
    There must also be Russians who escaped military service. Both deserve my deepest contempt.
    These people are trash. Imagine that England invaded Argentina and I went to live in Germany or Italy, and left my people.
    I don't want argentine children to grow up or have these ukros faggots around them. These people should be expelled.


    I don't consider any Ukrainian who fled vs serving those twits in power, to be a coward. Any person from dirt poor country with 40m people that will gladly go fight against a powerful nation like Russia is a fool with no self worth.

    These people are not poor or refugees, they are liberal parasites who escape because they have the possibility,
    They leave their compatriots behind.

    Well when the shit hits the fan, those that can leave will. They are the smart ones that knew nothing good could come of this for Ukraine. Exactly like how you would react if your buddy started poking a real bear. Start running....

    They are not refugees who oppose Zelensky's war but rather they defend the criminal regime from the outside in a soft way. Probably from the unoccupied western areas. They do not fight like their poor compatriots or ethnic Russian Ukrainians. How would you or I do for our country. They defend the LGBT regime from an iPhone.

    They know zelensky is a western stooge, and they are hiding in the west. Don't shit where you eat.

    Hilarious... and worth repeating...


    A curious fact is that the Russians did not eliminate these American mercenaries, despite the fact that mercenaries are not covered by the Geneva Convention.

    Perhaps one of the reasons the western elite are fighting so hard is because they think the Russians and Chinese are ruthless evil bastards like they are and fear how they will be treated if everyone becomes equal.

    Question for the board. While the opinion here its this is a war on Russia, is it possible that it is a war on Slavs?

    At a fundamental level the western elites see Ukrainians and Russians and Georgians as Soviets... they are all Russian, so this is a civil war where every death is a Russian death... as they say... well worth the money.

    If it was a war on Slavs a few countries would be changing sides.

    And the west would lose even harder than they are right now.

    That is why Europe goes along so willingly?

    Why does Europe need US forces on their territory to protect them?

    Europe is full of pussies who like to make war but clearly are totally unprepared for a real peer to peer war.

    They are used to fighting pygmies armed with sharpened grass and rather dangerous bits of fruit.

    They scared themselves half to death with WWI where the enemy had guns too.

    The EU economy was built so that German industry could power Utopian socialism in Nordic countries and lazy Mediterraneans

    The whole concept of one currency for all the European economies is stupid, but it was never going to work... I am surprised they kept up the pretense so long.

    Corruption everywhere is what has done it and suggesting Germany are the good guys and there are bad guys in this... well pointing the finger usually works best when you point it at yourself.

    The role of NATO itself was to keep the Soviet Union out, the Americans in, and the Germans down.
    They were using different methods, but the goal was stable.

    What a success... the Russians hopefully will learn the lessons and have as little to do with the west as possible moving forward, and the Americans are there to stay... unless Trump gets in... and the Germans without cheap energy are in trouble... but so is the UK and France and everyone else.

    Wow, some honesty. Why now?

    Maybe they have realised that while telling lies is fun and very occasionally gets you out of trouble, that there is no future being the liar because there can be no trust and no negotiations and mother will always suspect you are guilty for anything even when it wasn't you.

    Obviously Russia wont care if they start telling the truth.

    Too little too late.

    The CIA has created a network of spy bases in Ukraine with 12 secret facilities along the border with Russia, writes The New York Times.

    Western training has been about as successful as western equipment in this conflict...

    It seems western equipment is based on western ideology so as long as you have air control and artillery on call and your enemy is a third world country you are good to go.

    All out of warnings regarding the use of the quote button.

    Trump is often called a solution to every harm done by the US.
    Well, I don't share this optimism.
    I was keeping in mind what he was doing back then.
    He will be tied up by the deep state like he was.
    His personnel choices will be limited, ending up with relatives only.
    Can you remember how he was making official visits with Ivanka on his side, while she was not involved in any administrative position?
    There was a consular protocol issue with the fact.
    Trump ended his first term alone, frustrated and chaotic.
    I will just remind you of his orders to bomb Syria - that ended up with humiliation, but that's a different story.
    His new term wouldn't be any different.
    That is why Putin considers Biden to be a better option for Russia - at least they know what is to be expected.

    The Commissioner for Human Rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, Dmitry Lubinets, said that there are currently about 28 thousand Ukrainian citizens in Russian captivity. Three months ago in Kyiv they said that there were 4,337 people, of which 763 were civilians.

    It turns out that in three months the Russian Armed Forces captured about six brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Military observer Yuriy Podolyaka noted that the figures indicate the frequent surrender of Ukrainian soldiers. According to him, last summer their estimated number was 10-12 thousand.

    Yes, not all of them are military. But more than 90% of this figure is from the Ukrainian security forces (AFU, NGU, police, who are now being thrown to the curb in the thousands, border guards). 28,000... Essentially, a whole army! – Podolyaka noted.

    It was previously reported that the number of Ukrainian military deaths announced by Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is lower than the data available to Washington in 2023. This was reported by the New York Times. Zelensky said that since the beginning of the special operation, about 31 thousand Ukrainian soldiers have died. This sharply differs from Washington’s estimates, according to which about 70 thousand Ukrainians were already killed last summer, and from 100 to 120 thousand people were injured, the publication emphasizes.

    NOTE: any number from anyone has to be considered dubious in these situations however it was said...

    Western media finally accepting the truth that the US started the war in Ukraine

    This is most likely pure damage control. Western media only admits truths, when too many people already know it. The only hope they have is the short memory of the average Westerner who can be easily distracted by other topics.
    Remember how crucial it was that our freedom is defended in Afghanistan? Me neither. clown

    Trump is often called a solution to every harm done by the US.
    Well, I don't share this optimism.

    Have to agree, he is unpredictable, and flaky... he will say one thing and then do something completely different.

    His view of himself as an amazing businessman means he rips up agreements, presumably thinking he can agree to new ones that benefit the US more, but such agreements will never be signed by any self respecting other party.

    So the agreements just get ripped up.

    Trump ended his first term alone, frustrated and chaotic.

    His choices were terrible... this is a guy that wanted better relations with Russia and chose Haley and Bolten and that fat prick Pompeo... he could not have picked a worse group that would openly act against his stated policies if he had tried.

    That is why Putin considers Biden to be a better option for Russia - at least they know what is to be expected.

    Agree, but in the past Putin has never indicated his preference... this is a real change for him... maybe he thinks endorsing Biden might help Trump.

    Trumps remaining term in office cannot be enough to make an effective change but at least the republicans have more power in various levels of government so he could push things through.

    From what I have read of Trumps speeches he will end the war in Ukraine within 24 hours with threats... Putin will end the war or we will send in the Marines and everything we have that could possibly help the Ukraine... perhaps even including nuclear weapons... he is that dumb.

    Western media finally accepting the truth that the US started the war in Ukraine

    The western audience wont see it that way... they will just think... those clever CIA bastards knew all along that Russia would invade... how smart are they?

    Well not smart at all because they were planning to attack parts of the Ukraine and eventually Russia itself so of course they knew a war was coming... but they expected to be starting it themselves.

    Will Garry please give them both, and anyone who ignores the rule in the future, a short ban rather than 'punishing' the rest of us by removing a useful function?

    I sympathise. I will look at my options and make a decision in a couple of days.

    Do not say foolishness. Trump's version will be even more radicalized than in 2016.
    At the convention, trumpist spent their time attacking Soros and globalism. Steve Bannon is there again.
    It is vitally important that Trump wins the election or the Democrats will deepen their war against Russia
    Biden is an unbalanced man managed by an elite. Trump is uncontrollable.
    Obviously Putin is intelligent and seeks to remove support from the pedophile by saying that he prefers him.
    Trump's victory, along with Russia's victory in Ukraine, will be the death blow of globalism.
    And since you are North American, you have micro militancy and seek to convince the people around you, the undecided, to vote for Trump.

    In 2024, they plan 2.7 mln.
    Plus they get 1.5mln from Korea.
    Those numbers are about ten times higher than all the west combined. Which is simply shocking if true.

    So any country doing this steps back from them calling on Article 5 protection if, sorry when, their troops are killed in Ukraine. Or maybe even an attack, in response to attacking Russians/Russia, on their country.

    Hope they thought it through.
