  1. Seems the invaders are shifting to the tactics they used in Syria now. With our fuck up leaders and presidential candidates Putin can feel safe so far.

    • They have been using those tactics since day 1, and our useless leaders still haven’t declared russia a terrorist state.

  2. Despicable criminals!
    But, Ukraine cannot attack mafia land with our weapons. Makes me pissed off every time.

    • A Canadian journalist brought it to the point: “Ukraine needs weapons to push back the ruSSians which Ukraine currently does not have.”

      • If only the collection of cowards would help Ukraine to build its own. It’s doing so right now – like the Neptunes and various drones – but are they enough and their effectiveness good enough?

  3. The lack of reaction from world leaders only shows one thing.

    The Ukrainian genocide and the crimes of the Orcs will be settled in a dark alley, out of sight, by a few elites promoting their club diplomacy.

    Realize. London decided today to classify Wagner as a terrorist organization! Finally…
    But it is the Nazis in the Kremlin who are primarily responsible for all these crimes.
    Failing to arm Ukraine properly, could we not make progress on this judicial aspect!?
    The white marbles of the Kremlin are plastered with Ukrainian blood.

    We can be ashamed of not doing more. Because we can, we must do more.

    My thoughts and prayers to the people of Ukraine.
