Take no notice of the inevitable and predictable russian propaganda which claims that international support for Ukraine is waning. I was driving in Wiltshire*, in the UK last month, and heard what turns out to be terrifying news for the rashists. I heard the sound of Ukrainian gunners learning to use the British upgraded version of the M270 MLRS.
The M270B1 HIMAR is fitted with enhanced armour to protect the gun crew and can fire extremely high-precision GPS-guided munitions for 80km. They have just a 1meter accuracy deviation, from 80km as seen with the Antonovsky Bridge. The UK Ministry Of Defence says they will be supplied ‘at scale’ and the first handful have just entered service in Ukraine.
The UK is also in the handover phase of giving Ukraine several Royal Navy warships. Being ex-RN myself, I am especially happy about that world-first! The Ukrainian sailors have almost finished their training and ready to deploy Harpoon missiles to deal with the rashist ships.
All of this comes at a time when Ukrainian forces have now destroyed over 5,000 russian armored vehicles, like tanks and missile launchers – and the USA has not only supplied 4 more HIMARS it is now going to supply ATACMS operational-tactical missiles with a range of up to 300 km. Even MARS II MLRS have now arrived from Germany, in Ukraine!
Sanctions take time to work, we have seen that in places like Iran and North Korea, but they are just starting to take their toll on russia’s ability to react and replace.
So, there is terrible news still in Ukraine, and I would never try to reduce the awfulness of that, but there is a growing sense of terror for the rashist regime.
- I mention Wiltshire because it is poignant as the 2018 Salisbury Novichok poisonings by russian agents, happened there.
Велика Британія виступає разом з Україною проти злого рашистського режиму.

And another post from Shaun:
This intercepted call between two rashists confirms that the deaths of the Azov Regiment in the Olenivka prison, was deliberate mass murder. It confirms that it was yet another War Crime and a Crime Against Humanity, by the russian Terrorist State.
They did this, not only to kill the Ukrainian soldiers, but to destroy the evidence of the torture that they had previously inflicted upon them.
Every time you think the rashists have ‘crossed the line’ between humanity and depravity, they merely draw a new line deeper into the depths of depravity. The only humanitarian norm that they haven’t crossed (as far as we know) is cannibalism.
I am not allowed to call them ‘animals’ because I am under close scrutiny by LinkedIn, but to be fair, animals do not torture and kill their prey for pleasure. So to call the russians ‘animals’, would be unfair on animals.
