Joe: No, Trump Was Not Tougher On Putin Than Anyone Else

God the US media is a disaster.

The exercise includes 30,000 troops from more than 25 countries from Europe and North America, 200 aircraft, and 50 vessels.

The largest Nato exercise which is held just a few miles from the Russian border was planned long before Moscow's invasion of Ukraine but its significance has now been heightened.

"This exercise is extremely important for the security of Norway and its allies. We will practice an allied reinforcement of Norway", Norwegian Defence Minister Odd Roger Enoksen.

"It is not being held because of the Russian authorities' attack on Ukraine, but given the backdrop there is a heightened significance."

Russian forces made small territorial gains in Luhansk Oblast on March 14 but did not conduct any major attacks toward Kyiv or in northeastern Ukraine. Russian forces continue to assemble reinforcements and attempt to improve logistical support in both the Kyiv and southern operational directions. Ongoing Russian efforts to replace combat losses with both Russian replacements and non-Russian sources, including Syrian fighters and the Wagner Group, are unlikely to enable Russia to resume major offensive operations within the coming week.
Key Takeaways

Russian forces conducted several limited attacks northwest of Kyiv on March 14, unsuccessfully attempting to bridge the Irpin River.

Russian forces did not conduct offensive operations east of Kyiv and continued to prioritize improving logistics and reinforcing combat units.

The continued ability of Ukrainian forces to carry out successful local counterattacks around Kharkiv indicates that Russian forces are unlikely to successfully bypass Kharkiv from the southeast to advance toward Dnipro and Zaporizhia in the near term.

Russian and proxy forces continue to achieve slow but steady territorial gains in Donetsk Oblast after initial failures in the first week of the Russian invasion.

Ukrainian forces halted resumed Russian attacks from Kherson toward Mykolayiv and Kryvyi Rih on March 14.

Russia will likely deploy small units of Syrian fighters to Ukraine within the week and is confirmed to have deployed private military company (PMC) forces.

Russian and Belarusian forces increased their activity near the Ukrainian border in the last 24 hours in a likely effort to pin down Ukrainian forces but likely do not have the capability to open a new axis of advance into western Ukraine.

Russia and China deny that Russia seeks military aid from China and claimed that Russia does not need additional military support to complete its objectives in Ukraine.

Reports of Russian drone landed/crashed(?)in Romania,100KM from Ukraines Border-

An unmanned aerial vehicle, most likely of Russian origin, was found in the Romanian municipality of Dumitra, just over 100 kilometers south of the Ukrainian border.
This was reported by the Balkan Observer on Facebook, according to Ukrinform.
Local police have launched an inquiry after a resident of the Bistrița-Năsăud district in the Eastern Carpathians reported that an unidentified drone had landed on a lawn near his home.
A local police spokesman claimed the model had no equipment or signs to suggest that it was a military or war-related aircraft.
However, according to images circulating on the Internet, the "model" is actually a Russian Orlan-10 drone, used to gather intelligence and spot targets.
Orlan-10 drones are exclusively Russian-made and have been used continuously in Russia's aggression against Ukraine since 2014.

Romanian Language report:

Info on Orlan 10 drone:

It is usually used in groups of two or three, in which the first is used for reconnaissance at a height of 1–1.5 km, the second for electronic warfare and the third as a transponder which transmits information to the control center..

..According to media reports, an updated variant of Orlan-10 tactical UAV is to enter service with the Russia's ground forces in 2020. The updated variant is expected to have a laser designator to allow it to pinpoint targets for precision-guided artillery and aircraft munitions.

Could be this drone had some kind of malfunction which made it accidently fly into Romania-or alternativley it was up to no good on a recon mission of some kind?

Russia was targeting a 'training center' where western arm shipments are broken down for transport throughout Ukraine at around the same time as this drone was spotted in the air.

ETA - Just saw early reports that 3 Brits were killed at the 'training center'.

Not only will that be seen as a tradgedy in the Uk but putin will try to say britain is directly interfering and threaten to escalate again.

The majority of such are just plebs like ourselves alphabetaone.

They don't want to see war or invasion nether.

Personally i hope Putin slips and falls arse first on a rusty dildo if im honest.

The mans menace to reality and taking his nation down a path she's never going to be able to return from.

As to pride, what is it they say about that again?

"cometh before a fall" and all that jazz.

Info Wars Alex Jones nonsense per-chance?

Tell me this, why would a nation that choose to give away the third largest nuclear arsenal on Earth in the name of peace then decide to go on to play with biological weapons or be involved in research to produce such?

Why do most people do #ty shady things? Money and or power.

Money is simple enough but power could come in many forms. Political backing, agreements for arms shipment approval, ignoring billions being laundered in the US rustbelt through property purchases, investigations being dropped or started on your rivals or allies.

Thing is Grimpachi should things snowball and end up all breasts up, there might not be much money and power left to be had for anyone.

Think about the money Russia laundered through the likes of property and investments in London for instance, they own half the place, or did. LoL

My point being they are all involved one way or another in shady shenanigans and backroom backhanders.

But that don't mean its ok for Putin's forces to claim military exercises and then invade Ukraine under false pretence or jail anyone in there own nation who chooses to call it what it is "war" instead of a "special military exercise" for 15 years.

"Most people" at that sort of level politically and militarily are as bent as a £3 note, but to date, at least they have not been daft enough to initiate the beginnings of a third world war.

Yes, both sides engage in the same things but that wasn't the point. You asked why Ukraine would allow Biolabs or bioweapons to be built in Ukraine. As I said, money and or power. The people running things there have their own ambitions and wants. They are not the same ones who gave up the nukes. Those people have moved on. Accomplished what they wanted or found greener pastures.

I could go into the reasons Russia invaded. There is not a simple answer. People want simple answers so they can compartmentalize it and judge it. Usually judging it on a narrow basis.

The invasion was morally wrong but strategically it was inevitable when looking at the current trend. It was also avoidable but NATOs strategic motivations snd direction did not show any signs of changing.
The reasons Putin gave for invasion are flimsy just like ours were for invading Iraq. Those reasons were for his people to compartmentalize and judge. Not ours.

Yeh, its a complex puzzle indeed and the fact is we will only ever see some of the pieces in play or cards on the table.

Not get any argument out me in that department.

War is what's always inevitable or so it seems with us humans.

But this is one Putin cannot win methinks, and that's becoming more plain as day as they go by.

Might not be any sorts of simple answers but killing one another will only lead to more of the same on a greater scale.

And then there might not be any sorts of greener pastures left around.

As to your answer regarding the biolabs and bioweapons i don't share it but i suppose it is one indeed.
