Funny how often the Azov battalion is mentioned.

Yeah, that unit has a stupid fixation, at the least, on Nazi regalia.

Those guys are a volunteer force that is not part of the regular Ukrainian military. Their strength is maybe ONE percent of the entire Ukrainian military. But we won't hear those little facts from the Putin supporters.

At any rate, seeing as how Ukraine is being invaded, I suspect the Ukrainian authorities would issue rifles to purple dogs if they were willing to fight the Russian army. Completely understandable given the situation.

Cheers

Problem is the Azov battalian is an official part of the Ukrainian national guard and has a strength around 600 people. Discussing them is weird with their nazi bs. Thats why I dont think they would surrender. As for weapons all you need to do is turn in your passport and they will give you a gun. From what ive read on here they have things set up at Ukrainian embassies to assist foreigners who wish to fight for Ukraine.

Then there is Macron - He made a comment that people need to understand that this war is going to take years. Even if Russia were able to conquer the country resistance is not going to just stop.

I'm wondering, given current difficulties for the Russian military, if Putin will opt to occupy only a part of Ukraine and declare it was a great victory for Russia. Then cue more decades of tension and provocations.

Cheers

Was this before or after Zielinski told putin to go talk to himself?



Bet putin can't believe a bunch of crazy Ukrainians just turned him into saddam hussain.

Ha Ha.

Might be the best possible ending for now.

But not sure if Zielinski would even consider that, he may be the real deal.

For better or worse.

Vlada-lini. Reminds me of Italy choking when they attacked the Greeks. (Another pack of tough nuts the EU would do well to reassess.)

The problem with that is how does Putin sell it to the Russian people. There are already a lot of russians pissed. The fact he went way beyond the DPR and LPR, whose provinces havent even been captured yet.

I dont think Putin really thought this endeavor all the way thru. I still believe Putin is a victim of his own propaganda.

Wow!

Does this allow British citizens to legally take up arms in Ukraine?

Do we have anything similar?

Maybe we can trick joe into authorizing it.

That would be an absolute game changer, I know a few guys that would love an opportunity to go push russian forces back into russian territory.

You know, for old times sake.

I'm not sure to be honest. Ukraine acknowledged there was a possibility of a meeting but Russia placed unrealistic demands (namely surrender) and Ukraine said no. It seems to me that Russia is trying to mask the fact of their unrealistic demands.

Something like a month ago one of Putin's ex right hand men gave an interview to some British news channel, can't remember which.

So this geezer said all Putin wanted was Donestsk Luhansk then the coast too Mariopol and think he mentioned Odessa not certain that town.

He stated there was no way Putin would want to occupy north west Ukraine it would be impossible to control.

Brits could go to Ukraine / Ukraine Embassy to get the info and where to go. As for the US I dont think we have any laws that prohibit US citizens going to Ukraine to fight.

We did have a law on the books that prevented it like 150+ years ago, however a Supreme Court ruling basically invalidated the law when the person who was charged under the law won his case with SCOTUS.

The only caveat I know of is if you enlist in a foreign military / militia / etc, and it places you at war with the US, your pretty much done. If you arent killed on the battle field and somehow end up in the custody of the US / allied country, you would be facing life in prison or the death penalty in the US.

Then why in the hell do what he is doing now? Is it in hopes he can gain the entire country by removing the government or is he destroying as much as possible to essentially, in putins eyes, make the remainder of Ukraine useless to europe / the west?
