Probably safe to assume that 90% of what we see is going to be editorialised propaganda at best

Yeah. This is looking more and more like a proxy war between China and the US, with China backed Russia and the US backed Ukraine going at it full on. Grab your popcorns. Grab them.

Nice try.

We are BARELY (and by that I mean just barely meets the definition of barely) supporting Ukraine, who has VERY little in the way of military capabilities.

You sure seem proud of an international bully beating up on a near defenseless neighbor that posed zero threat.

Are you ccp?

You sound like ccp.

Chinese don't care about CCP. China is the only ancient civilization that continues to the present day. CCP means nothing to China.

That's what men do. That's what men are born to do. Territory.

To be honest, it's way easier for Russians to buy HJ-12 from China. HJ-12 is on par with Javelin, but is lighter and easier to carry because Chinese guys aren't as physically strong as American guys.

So in other words they just want to turn Ukraine into another Belarus-style puppet.

By the way, thanks for staying so on top of the updates Xcathdra. It's definitely helped keep this thread on track while other threads have devolved into the usual political squabbling.

I think Putin has other ideas. He is bound and determined to reconstitute the USSR and he has stated several times now that Ukraine has never been a sovereign country and has always been part of the USSR. I also dont think Ukraine is the end game for Putin either.

As for China and Russia being "allies" now I am not buying it, especially after China claimed Vladivostok.

As for the rest you guys are welcome. It is a nice and welcome distraction for me (not the war itself).

Confirmed that a Ukrainian kindergarten used as a shelter was hit. Images are too graphic to post. Will be considered a war crime.

From what I have read the radiation level is slowly increasing because of an engagement of Russian Helicopters and Ukrainian ground units fighting. The attempt to down the russian helicopters saw them deploy countermeasures - namely flares.

Those deployments were low enough that the flares hit the ground while they were still active, resulting in fires in the exclusion zone and stirring up the radioactive material.

Turkey cannot stop the passage of warships through its straits leading to the Black Sea as Ukraine has requested, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told the Turkish Hurriyet newspaper on Friday, referencing a clause in the Montreux Convention that allows vessels to return to their home base.

Ukraine appealed to Turkey to block Russian warships from passing through the Dardanelles and Bosphorus straits. Çavuşoğlu said that Turkey is limited in its ability to do so.

“In the case of a war where Turkey is not a party, there are measures that can be taken regarding the countries that are parties in the war,” he said.

“If there is a demand for the ships of the warring countries to return to their bases, then it must be allowed,” he added, referring to Russia.

“Russia had its own clause put in [to the Montreux Convention]. Articles 19, 20 and 21 stipulate that if the ship of a country that is on the Black Sea wishes to pass with a request to return to its base, this is allowed,” Çavuşoğlu said.

Not good at all. The smoke from those fires will be toxic. The winds will blow the radioactive material distances away.
