    Oh dear even the chinkies are throwing Puffy Putin under the bus.

    Chinky FM:

    "China firmly advocates respecting and safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries," Wang said, according to a statement from China's Foreign Ministry. "This equally applies to the Ukraine issue."

    North Korea denies supplying weapons or ammunition to Russia

    North Korea has claimed it has never supplied weapons or ammunition to Russia, and does not plan to do so, adding that “reckless” US reports of weapons sales were an attempt to tarnish its image.

    “Recently, the US and other hostile forces talked about the ‘violation of a resolution’ of the UNSC [UN security council], spreading a ‘rumour of arms dealings’ between the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea]and Russia … we have never exported weapons or ammunition to Russia before and we will not plan to export them,” the state-controlled KCNA news agency said on Thursday.

    The statement cited, but did not name, North Korea’s vice-director general of the general bureau of equipment of the ministry of national defence.

    KCNA quoted the official as calling on Washington to stop making “reckless remarks” and to “keep its mouth shut”.

    Biden administration officials earlier this month confirmed a declassified US intelligence assessment that North Korea was in the process of selling arms to Russia in violation of UN security council sanctions banning Pyongyang from importing or exporting weapons.

    The inventory reportedly included millions of artillery shells and rockets, as Moscow attempts to ease severe supply shortages in Ukraine worsened by US-led export controls and sanctions.

    The official cited in Thursday’s report said North Korea had never recognised the “unlawful” UN sanctions imposed in response to Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programmes, adding that trading in weapons was the “lawful right peculiar to a sovereign state”, according to an English translation of the statement.

    “But we take this opportunity to make clear one thing. We have never exported weapons or ammunition to Russia before and we will not plan to export them,” the official said. It is not sure from where the rumour originated which the US is spreading, but it is aimed at tarnishing the DPRK’s image.”

    Calling the reported sale of weapons a “potential purchase”, the White House national security spokesperson, John Kirby, clarified that there were “no indications that purchase has been completed and certainly no indications that those weapons are being used inside of Ukraine”.

    Leif-Eric Easley, a professor at Ewha University in Seoul and commentator on North Korean affairs, said the regime’s denial of arms sales should be treated with caution.

    “North Korea prefers to keep its arms sales under the table, not only because such transactions can be affected by sanctions, but also because Pyongyang’s customers tend to be involved in other illicit behaviour as well,” he said.

    “North Korean claims are not credible, especially as the Kim regime, like Putin’s Russia, tries to disseminate counter-narratives against US intelligence and international criticism.”

    Experts believe North Korea could theoretically become a major source of small arms, artillery and other ammunition for Russia, since both have defence systems based on those developed during the Soviet era.

    Despite Thursday’s denial of arms sales, North Korea has indicated since the start of the war in Ukraine that it hopes to strengthen ties with Russia. It has blamed the US for the conflict and said Russian military action was a justified response to western “hegemonic policy”.

    North Korea has also shown an interest in sending construction workers to help rebuild pro-Russian breakaway regions in Ukraine’s east.

    North Korea has traditionally earned foreign currency by sending its citizens to work overseas. Under UN-sanctions they were supposed to have been repatriated by the end of 2019, but significant numbers of labourers from the country have reportedly continued to work in Russia and China, as well as in Laos and Vietnam, since the deadline passed.

    In July, North Korea became the only country aside from Russia and Syria to recognise the independence of the territories, Donetsk and Luhansk.

    In a letter to mark last month’s anniversary of Korea’s liberation from 35 years of Japanese rule at the end of the second world war, Putin told his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong-un that their countries would “expand comprehensive and constructive bilateral relations with common efforts”.

    In a message to Putin, Kim said the “strategic and tactical cooperation, support and solidarity” between the two countries had reached a new level amid their common efforts to frustrate threats and provocations from “hostile military forces”.

    Well there was no chance of the Ukrainians being stupid enough or indeed allowed to, take any Russian land. Now the Russians are claiming Ukrainian land as their own, I doubt Ukraine will take that. So we very much are a step closer to the unthinkable. However, some small part of me still feels they will never do it and indeed the US may have something up their sleeve which basically neutralises all Russian nuclear capabilities. My vote would be that the guy with the final say, won't push the button for Vlad.

    The local leaders of, either the two already separate countries and one remaining partly occupied by them, are asking their citizens to choose whether to stay as they are or join Russia. A democratic election is taking place.

    Allegedly, the voting and the counting, will take 4 to 5 days. If the result is positive to join Russia, the Russian parliament will offer the citizens of the areas, Russian citizenship and they, and only then, their areas will become part of Russia.

    No sign of mail-in votes or broken voting machines, so far.

    Putin can invent all the shit he wants, and it doesn't matter if idiots like you believe it.

    He's invaded a sovereign nation and someone needs to put a bullet in his head before he uses nukes to compensate for the colossal failure of his overrated military.

    I agree and I think at that point Vlad will be dragged out of his bed and simply shot in a courtyard. That is what I have heard from a Russian, it's how they roll. Then comes the fucking clean up without the new order wanting to concede much and to not loose much face; Cuda, we are in for a long one I tell thee

    German observer lauds good organization of referendum in Zaporozhye region

    He noted that the voters are working "to avert something dangerous".

    MELITOPOL, September 23. /TASS/.

    "A German observer monitoring the referendum on the accession to Russia in the Zaporozhye region has lauded its good organization and noted that the voters are working "to avert something dangerous."

    Stefan Schaller of Energie Waldeck-Frankenberg GmbH shared his impressions with journalists on Friday.

    "First, I saw that everything is organized perfectly here.

    Second, these people are filled with enthusiasm about the elections.

    Third, I would like to note that I feel, maybe it is because of tension or fear, but more likely a feeling that people want to avert something dangerous. They are very afraid that something unsavory may happen and are working to avert it," he said.

    He said that before arriving in the Zaporozhye region, he had studied the region’s history and the history of relations between Russia and Ukraine. He also said he had monitored elections to the Russian State Duma (lower parliament house) and that is why he had been invited by the Russian side.

    Voting at referendums on joining Russia in the Lugansk and Donetsk People’s Republic, and in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions began at 08:00am local time on Friday and will last until September 27."

    Italian observer notes legitimacy, absence of violations at DPR referendum

    Some 130 foreign observers from 26 countries monitor the referendum on DPR’s accession to the Russian Federation, including representatives of Russia, Venezuela, Italy, Romania, Togo and South Africa

    DONETSK, September 23. /TASS/.

    "An observer from Italy noted the legitimacy, freedom of access and absence of violations at the referendum in Donetsk People’s Republic.

    "I saw no violation of rights, I saw freedom [of access for the observers], I made photos. Nobody told me that photos are prohibited. There were people, they came and they cast their ballots. In my opinion, it was legitimate," Italian reporter Eliseo Bertolazzi, one of the foreign observers to the referendum, said during the DPR Central Election Commission briefing Friday.

    Some 130 foreign observers from 26 countries monitor the referendum on DPR’s accession to the Russian Federation, including representatives of Russia, Venezuela, Italy, Romania, Togo and South Africa."

    Who are these “election observers?” Are they from a recognized group or someone the Russians hired?

    Telephone conversation with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud

    Vladimir Putin had a telephone conversation with Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud at the Saudi side’s initiative.

    September 22, 2022 23:10

    "Vladimir Putin asked Prince Mohammed bin Salman to convey his best regards and good wishes to King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and congratulations to the Saudi authorities and people on the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia marked on September 23.

    The two leaders discussed various matters pertaining to their cooperation at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation in the context of the decision adopted at the recent Samarkand summit to grant the status of Dialogue Partner to Saudi Arabia. Prince Mohammed bin Salman mentioned the SCO’s growing role in international affairs and expressed Saudi Arabia’s willingness to take an active part in its work.

    They talked about Russia-Saudi Arabia coordination to ensure stability on the global oil market, expressed a high appreciation of the efforts taken within the framework of OPEC+ and reaffirmed their commitment to implement the agreements reached.

    Prince Mohammed bin Salman said that Saudi Arabia would be adequately represented at the Russian Energy Week International Forum, which is scheduled to take place in Moscow on October 12–14.

    He expressed satisfaction with the transfer of foreign prisoners who illegally took part in hostilities in Donbass to Saudi Arabia, which became possible thanks to the personal mediation of the Crown Prince.

    During the exchange of views on the bilateral agenda, the sides noted that their trade and economic ties were growing at a high pace and that mutually beneficial cooperation was developing in widely different areas.
    It was agreed to maintain interaction and personal contacts."

    Die Wahrheit: Das grosste Arschloch Russlands - taz.de

    The truth
    The biggest asshole in Russia


    A sensational discovery by Russian researchers in one of the most remote places on earth in north-eastern Siberia.





    The woschd or leader who has been and will be forgotten Photo: AP

    Rarely has the world seen tempers more agitated than this Friday, March 1, 3022, as the distinguished scholars of the Russian Academy of Sciences gathered on Lenin Prospekt in Moscow for a press conference for the media of the entire universe. And all the reporters had come - from the chic lunaist from the brand new channel MHV (MoonHoloVision) to the good, old earthly internet reporter in a dusty jerkin. There was crackling tension in the stuffy air of the “Golden Brain”, as the Muscovites like to call the thousand-year-old academy building. Joy, but also something like unrelenting amazement, was reflected in the pale face of the bleary-eyed Academy President Lev Kirin as he reported in a trembling voice about one of the most spectacular scientific discoveries of all time, which would go down in human history as "Russia's biggest asshole". like Kirin.


    "Dear citizens of Terra," he began and then gave such an adventurous summary of the events that even the otherwise cool astro-look holo-reporter's delicate jaw dropped. According to this, a geological anomaly in northeastern Siberia was recently detected during laser scans of the Siberian land surface from the geostationary outer earth ring of the International Space Agency Unasa. A research collective of archaeologists and historians, astrophysicists and geologists then set off into the previously unexplored region, where they came across a huge underground rock formation in one of the most remote places on earth, about 300 kilometers north of the settlement of Belaya in Yakutia. The scientists christened the dark massif, which despite its extent of around one kilometer in the permafrost soil of the tundra cannot be seen with the naked eye, "Chornaya Gora", Black Mountain.
    Initial assumptions that it was a meteorite were not confirmed. Test drilling and a radioactive age determination showed that the Black Mountain is of terrestrial nature and consists of composite rock, so-called shungite, and must have been transported to its place of discovery in one piece about a thousand years ago - with what technology is not known.cavity under rock The surprise of the scientists was even greater when they discovered a small cavity under the rock block, inside a kind of sarcophagus. According to the President of the Academy, with complex technology it was finally possible to bore a tunnel from the side and penetrate under the giant stone. When the cavity was opened, a coffin with a mummified corpse was actually found. Carved on the marble coffin lid was an inscription in Cyrillic letters, identified by linguists as New Old Russian: "Here lies the biggest asshole in Russia."
    At this point, the otherwise rational intellectual Kirin swallowed, visibly moved. "A thousand years old," he repeated, is the coffin, the mummy, the Black Mountain. "All of this must have come from the Dark Ages," as historians call the period at the beginning of the 21st century, because, strangely enough, there are no records of this epoch of Russian history between the Stalin era and the Navalny period, and no intensive historical research either would have brought light into the pitch darkness of the buried age. "But now we're smarter," beamed the gray-haired thinker, "at least we can guess who was buried here." Then he let a hologram of the grave appear in front of the assembled spectators. In the three-dimensional representation, the coffin lid opened and a mummy, hunched over because it was tied up, appeared. Another inscription was carved above her head. The content is the real sensation, explained Kirin and then read the text full of pathos:
    “The clever and wise Russian people buried here the biggest asshole in the long and immortal history of Russia. He was the Woschd. We Russians didn't burn his corpse and scatter it in all directions of the wind so that the storm wouldn't carry it all over the country and his seed could germinate again and the mischief of his non-person could return. We Russians received the mummy of the Vozhd and put a giant stone over him so that the Führer would disappear forever and never come back. We Russians have erased his name from all history books. His family, his children and grandchildren, all relatives were wiped out. Just as every memory of him, every story about him, every image of him has been eliminated. The Voschd is now nothing and will remain under the Chernaya Gora for eternity. He is and was nothing but the biggest asshole in Russia.”
    Shame and terror Apparently, according to Kirin, around a thousand years ago, out of shame and desperation, the Russian people had a terror ruler who was probably even more cruel than Ivan the Terrible or Joseph Stalin and who, in his madness about Caesar, had waged brutal wars against his own people and other countries erased from collective memory. Unfortunately, in earlier times, Russians would not have learned anything from history, but would always have tolerated new tyrannies. A thousand years ago, people were finally wiser for once. Therefore, the President of the Academy emphasized, the will of the Russian people, guided by truly deep wisdom, will be absolutely respected. In coordination with the Cooperation Council of the World Government in Zurich, the origin of the mummy is not determined and the name of the so-called Woschd is not explored in more detail. Even historians have insisted that the sarcophagus be sealed again immediately, the area around Chernaya Gora declared a forbidden zone and the mummy under Black Mountain left to be forgotten. "A great victory for the entire solar system and beyond," Lev Kirin concluded his speech with noticeable satisfaction, while the young HoloVision reporter put it a little differently in her typically relaxed moon manner: "As all of humanity knows, crass ass madness has its price. "

    Sure, lets read about a mummified corpse on a Putin thread instead. Incidentally, most of the TD readership are not boneheads- don't presume a peewee like you has the right to speak for them.

    Perhaps someone had a premonition of the infamy surrounding the finding of Putin’s archeological remains a hundred years from now?

    A number of attacks on Russian authorities have been reported since President Vladimir Putin’s announcement of a partial call-up of troops to join his struggling seven-month war in Ukraine.

    In a statement on Monday, Russian authorities said that a 25-year-old male individual opened fire at a military registration and enlistment office in Ust-Ilimsk, resulting in a Kremlin military commander being critically wounded.

    A video of the incident
    also showed the suspect firing at least one shot at the military commander as bystanders fled the office.


    The military commander was transported to a nearby medical facility and the suspect was arrested and placed into custody, authorities said.


    The shooter’s mother told a Russian media outlet that her son, Ruslan Zinin, was upset about his close friend being drafted into the conflict, despite having little to no military experience,
    according to The New York Times.


    “Ruslan was very upset because of this, because his friend did not serve in the army,” Zinin’s mother told the local media outlet. “They said that there would be partial mobilization, but it turns out that they are taking everyone.”


    In a statement through social media platform Telegram
    , Irkutsk region Gov. Igor Kobzev said the military commander is in critical condition and is “fighting for his life.”


    “I can’t wrap my head around what happened, and I am ashamed that this is happening at a time when, on the contrary, we should be united,” Kobzev wrote in his statement.


    In a separate incident, authorities said that a suspect rammed his vehicle into the entrance of a military recruitment center in ​​Uryupinsk early Monday morning, setting the center on fire after throwing Molotov cocktails,
    according to The Wall Street Journal.


    According to Russian independent news outlet Mediazona
    , there have been 17 targeted attacks on military recruitment centers and administrative buildings since Putin’s announcement of partial troop mobilization last week, which came as Ukraine has made significant gains in reclaiming its territory.


    Mediazona also noted that in total 54 attacks on military recruitment centers and administrative buildings happened since Russia’s conflict with neighboring Ukraine began in February.


    Thousands of Russians are fleeing or attempting to flee the country to avoid possible conscription.
