    Talk about desperately clinging to power.

    Once he started talking about nukes, I suspect the military around him were weighing the option of removing him vs. Moscow being turned to glass.

    Absolutely! The dictator has lost it completely.

    Putin's speech appears to have set Moscow ablaze with anxiety. For a hypothetical family of three (let's say a mom, a dad, and an adult son), a flight from Moscow to Istanbul is now approaching $3200.

    Another former Putin ally dies after ‘falling down several flights of stairs’ as eight cronies are mysteriously killed

    A FORMER Putin ally and top aviation expert has died in Moscow, becoming the latest of the Russian president's associates to meet his end in a mysterious fashion since the start of the war in Ukraine.


    Anatoly Gerashchenko, the former rector of the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI), died after reportedly falling down a series of flights of stairs on Tuesday.

    It takes courage to protest when the dictator has essentially banned any dissent. (This is sabang's "brave new world", but he's too fucking dumb to understand it).


    Protesters have clashed with police in Moscow as anger erupted over Vladimir Putin's declaration of a partial mobilisation in Russia.



    Crowds took to the streets of the Russian capital after the
    Kremlin announced 300,000 reserves would be called up to continue its invasion of Ukraine.

    Demonstrators shouted "No to war" in a show of defiance as some were pinned to the ground or dragged away after being detained by armed police.

    At least 300 people in Moscow were among more than 1,371 detained across 38 cities nationwide on Wednesday night.

    It is pointless for an Army Reservist- who has voluntarily joined the Reserves, and accepted certain benefits and privileges in return, to protest being 'called up'. If you don't want to be called up, don't join the Reserves! I suspect most of the protesters are good old fashioned Peaceniks- and nothing wrong with that. Greater efforts should be being made to end this war through negotiation.

    There's a really really simple way that Putin's war could be ended and all it needs are the words of one man.

    Twigged what it is yet?

    The 'words of one man' are hardly negotiation, which involves more than one party.

    He never will, as he is not too bright and consumes massive amounts of propaganda horseshit. Putin is having has ass handed to him on a plate.

    The last time I said that, Russia was being decisively defeated in Kyiv oblast. It fit then and it fits now. Russia is fucked and your shit narrative has completely collapsed. It is only a matter of time before they will be completely vanquished on the battlefield and permanently driven out of Ukraine.

    The game is up.

    Outside of lobbing nukes, I am not sure Russia is up to a battle with anyone. Their army has been shown to be in sad shape.

    I will be sure to remind you. That is, if you do not flounce again when Russia is finally finished in Ukraine.

    We were talking about this just the other day.

    Could you imagine how long it would take for them to be decimated if the lunatic in charge started hurling bombs at NATO countries?

    Surely even he isn't mad enough to do that.

    So let us not even expend the energy discussing it. Putin wants to enjoy his monster mansion in Sochi, he is not going to engage in mutually assured self-destruction. Let us remember that dictators really are unable to see their own demise. Ceausescu, Gaddafi, Saddam etc. never saw it coming and Putin will not be any different.

    We don't know. He keeps making threats, he keeps doubling down. He claims his red line is any attack on Russia. Since he regards Crimea as 'Russia' and the Donbas soon to be 'Russia' that red line will be crossed.
    As Harry has mentioned, the next question is: Will the generals be mad enough to press the button when ordered? It only takes one.

    Russia’s military divided as Putin struggles to deal with Ukraine’s counteroffensive, US sources say


    Russia’s military is divided over how best to counter Ukraine’s unexpected battlefield advances this month, according to multiple sources familiar with US intelligence, as Moscow has found itself on the defensive in both the east and the south.


    Russian President Vladimir Putin is himself giving directions directly to generals in the field, two sources familiar with US and western intelligence said– a highly unusual management tactic in a modern military that these sources said hints at the dysfunctional command structure that has plagued Russia’s war from the beginning.


    Intelligence intercepts have captured Russian officers arguing among themselves and complaining to friends and relatives back home about decision-making from Moscow, one of these sources told CNN.

    And there are significant disagreements on strategy with military leaders struggling to agree on where to focus their efforts to shore up defensive lines, multiple sources familiar with US intelligence said.


    The Russian Ministry of Defense has claimed that it is redeploying forces toward Kharkiv in the northeast – where Ukraine has made the most dramatic gains – but US and western sources say the bulk of Russian troops still remain in the south, where Ukraine has also mounted offensive operations around Kherson.


    Putin announced a partial mobilization on Wednesday that is expected to include the call-up of up to 300,000 reservists. He has for months resisted taking that step and Biden administration officials said Wednesday that the fact he has moved to do so now highlights the severity of Russia’s manpower shortages and signals a growing desperation.
