    Corruption in Russia is pretty much non-existent nowadays in my experience. Never had to pay a dime anywhere "off the books". In Ukraine it was and still is rampant and if anything it's actually even gotten worse since 2014 and their glorious revolution.

    It is freaking mindblowing what a 180 view of things that propaganda has instilled in people. Ask any random person in Europe and they'll tell you with absolute certainty that this conflict is about uncorrupt and democratic Ukraine trying to part ways with corrupt and undemocratic Russia, and the latter resorting to force to prevent Ukraine from achieving this.

    Big Ukrainian missile attack against Crimea.

    This right after a Ukrainian terrorist attack in Moscow.

    But remember, Putin’s endless restraint is his strength. He is playing the long game. Revenge is best served cold.

    ‼🏴☠🇷🇺3 Storm Shadow cruise missiles hit the center of Sevastopol - it was the most massive attack
    ▪At 00:31 the missile threat was canceled. All enemy and domestic channels published footage of powerful explosions.
    ▪More than 10 targets were shot down, apparently they couldn’t shoot down some.
    ▪Earlier, Governor Razvozhaev reported that missiles hit an office building in the area of ​​Rudneva Street. The windows of many houses were broken.
    - RVvoenkor

    Sevastopol is subject to probably the most massive shelling during the conflict

    According to various estimates, 19-35 missiles were reported downed. It is already known that two civilians (including a child) were injured.

    An air threat siren sounds in the city for an hour and a half. The air defense system hits targets uninterruptedly.

    There is talk of about 13 Tu-95MS aircraft in the air.
    More aircraft could be added.
    It seems that a major missile attack is being prepared against Ukraine.

    Brave Ukro boar decided to choke the Russkie bear using itself.

    Actually all these Kiev activities to aggravate the Bear it is probably more like the Boar is teasing the bear in the hope that it tries to swallow the Boar before it has chewed it into small pieces in the hope of choking the bear on the way down.

    All these attacks trying to distract Russia and perhaps everyone about what is happening on the front line.

    Nuland promised surprises... she didn't promise Kiev would win.

    🇷🇺🇺🇦🇵🇱⚡ Cruise missiles spotted just 20km from the Polish border

    Ukrainian monitoring resources noticed missiles in the Novovolynskoye area (on the very border with Poland).

    The missile goes straight along the border towards the checkpoint on the border of Ukraine and Poland Rava-Russkaya. Panicking Poles raised air force.

    🇵🇱🇺🇦🇷🇺⚡Poland and allies have activated aircraft to ensure the safety of Polish airspace , - operational command of the Polish Armed Forces

    At least 19x explosions in Stryi, on the Ukrainian side of the Polish-Ukrainian border!

    Ukrainian media reports that ALL missiles that are currently in the airspace of Ukraine are headed for the Lviv region, which is located on the Polish-Ukrainian border!

    🇷🇺🇺🇦⚡There has never been such a concentration of arrivals in such a small area at once. I think the Russian Defense Ministry will soon say what exactly we hit there. Or we'll see from the picture.

    Missile attack on the Lviv region

    The mayor of Lvov reports that approximately 20 missile and 7 “geran“ kamikaze drones took part in the attack on the region.

    Targets are infrastructure facilities. No details yet. But the question is really interesting.

    I repeat - there has never been such a concentrated attack on one place during the entire war.

    The enemy claims attacks with 29 Kh-101/Kh-555 cruise missiles from 14 Tu-95MS VKS strategic aircraft and 28 Geran-2 attack unmanned aerial vehicles.

    The main blow of today's attack by the Aerospace Forces fell on facilities in the area of ​​the city of Stryi, Lviv region.

    One of the Russian missiles flew into Poland tonight, says the Operational Command of the Polish Army.

    As the report says, the missile entered Polish airspace near the city of Oserdów, stayed there for 39 seconds and returned back to the Lviv region.

    This is not the first incident with Russian missiles flying into Poland. They are usually associated with navigation errors in missiles whose flight routes lie right near the borders to bypass Ukrainian air defense areas.

    HQ. StormShitshow is quite capable system. Well, Russians just have to hit harder.

    After terrorist attacker in Moscow Ukraine didn’t sleep on laurels.

    Against US advice, they attacked refineries, they hit civilians in Belgorod, Sevastopol was hit too. What new can I say? Everything is clear what needs to be done

    Not seen mention of Kola based aircraft before. Probably 14 aircraft in all.

    Missiles from the these 7 are probably those that flew down the Polish border.

    🇷🇺🇺🇦 According to the data, the arrivals were:
    1. On fuel and lubricants warehouses and hangars.
    2. At the airfield and air defense, which is located a little outside the city, guarding an important transshipment base or some “workshops” for the production of “something”.
    3. On energy/gas infrastructure
    4. There was a certain training center near the airfield. Over the past month, a lot of people have been brought in and taken away (perhaps there is a training center/training ground there).

    Locals report that there are a lot of ambulances around the city.

    Explosions occurred in the Ivano-Frankivsk region, local publics report.

    Earlier, telegram monitoring channels wrote that a new missile attack was aimed, among other things, at the city of Burshtyn in this region.

    It is alleged that the attack was carried out by Kinzhal hypersonic missiles. This has not been officially confirmed.

    According to preliminary information, the object is now unsuitable for use by Western aviation.

    As you can see, the main targets of the missiles were objects in the Lviv and Kiev region, and the geraniums also carried out attacks in Ivano-Frankivsk, Khmelnitsky, Odessa, Poltava, Vinnitsa and other regions.

    The map does not show the routes of two Kinzhals, which, according to the head of the Lviv region, hit one of the infrastructure facilities.

    The Russians just double-tapped the Stryi airfield in Lvov, in the same general area as the strikes earlier tonight. With Kinzhals.

    Whatever was there, they wanted it dead. And it's probably dead now. Noteworthy that apparently this airfield was prepped to receive F-16s.

    ❗Last night, the Russian Aerospace Forces hit facilities in the electric power and gas production industries, as well as assembly and testing sites for unmanned boats in Ukraine, the Russian Ministry of Defense has reported.

    All goals of the strike were achieved, the work of Ukrainian enterprises for the manufacture and repair of weapons was disorganized, and foreign-made equipment was destroyed.

    Just putting this out for discussion. Whilst Stryi may be the location of a restituted old airfield there was a massive fire there last night. Interestingly it is the site of thuis rather critical complex:

    Fennec_Radar
    @RadarFennec
    Near Stryi at 49.36047228668071, 23.90450568681524 is the Bilche-Volytsko-Uherske underground gas storage. The largest gas storage facility in Europe with a capacity of 17.05 bcm

    And Ukraine removed any reason for Russia to see said facility functional recently.
