From the last topic: They're nazis and seriously fuck them and I have no sympathy.
But it is pretty fucked up that Putin's covering over the Wagner graves w/ cement. Those dudes died fighting for your regime before the revolt even happened. It's just so fucking needlessly and pointlessly petty.
But they are rapists and torturers and murderers, so having their graves desecrated doesn't really bother me.

Oil and gas, the real reason Russia invaded.
Yes, they have plenty. But a) more is always welcome and b) it was more about preventing Europe from getting a nearby non-Russian source of them so Russia could maintain its stranglehold on the market. Which hilariously, the invasion already fucked up for them.
Some more news regarding the war.

There must absolutely be NO forgiveness given to Putin and those who enacted his grisly orders.

"That never happened, stop mentioning that or else " has been a Russian gimmick since the Soviet era and probably before.

Seems like Ukraine attacked 6 regions tonight, the biggest drone attack since the start of the war.

The Ukrainians have confirmed the liberation of the village of Dachi on the left bank of the Dnipro, making it the first liberated settlement on the left bank of the war.

Kremlin says that such attacks were only made possible due to "Western intelligence" and will not go unpunished.

Sounds like we've heard that before...multiple times.

Which is always counterproductive in so many ways. But it's barbaric so that is its own reward to them I guess.

Actually not what I said in my post.
Yes, you said exactly what i paraphrase.

stated the war can only end if Putin is overthrown and killed because he refuses to give up. Not that Putin has too much to lose.
I never said you said that. I said you said". The other side couldnt give up because they have too much to lose". And that the other guy replied that its the same for Russia .

Gladius_ posted...

That's why the two aren't comparable. One side faces potential annihilation the other side? Their ego.
You said Putin invaded Ukraine because he just wants to have it. This sounds like ego. And means that Putin is willing to kill to satisfy his ego.

Putin doesn't think he will lose everything. He just wants Ukraine. He feels Ukraine belongs to him and he won't give it up even if the entire world turns on him. He'll sacrifice millions of his own people because he believes Ukraine belongs to him.
I believe he feared Ukraine joining nato , that makes sense because that would be a problem for him with other enemy countries he has , even if him wanting to have Ukraine is the case too I dont think thats the main motive for his impulse and doing something that drastic. The point is he already lost support from all around the world and many people from his own country

He's mad. You're trying to find rationality in a mad man
No. I never tried to find rationality in him. I said he's irrational.

just cause i thought it was amusing

putin isn't actually scared of nations joining nato considering nato a strictly defensive alliance that hasn't ever started a war. there is no universe in which nato would invade nuclear armed russia as an aggressor, and putin knows this. he just uses nato as a scapegoat. he has likened himself to peter the great and expressed that he wants the russian empire back and wishes the soviet union never fell. empire building is his only motivation in this conflict and the others he has started throughout the years

It was a holdover from the last discussion. Putin's fear of Ukraine joining Nato is strictly regarding his opportunity for gaining Ukraine. He attacked Ukraine because his opportunity was closing. He's a megalomaniacal dictator that deserves to be overthrown. If he allowed Ukraine to join Nato he knew there's no way of him getting back. Despite his posturing he doesn't want to fight Nato. That's suicide for Russia.

Putin is a weak scared ineffectual man whose only legacy will be how he was humiliated in his desire to conquer Ukraine.

that is an interesting point and i have never heard it expressed like that but i can buy it. putin knowing he can't invade an actual nato country is definitely true.

i really wish the russian public or even the elites would depose putin and replace him with someone that would end the war and stop trying to empire build. considering the hardliners that putin surrounds himself with it seems unlikely, but would be very cool to get a non warmongering psycho in charge of russia for once

True. After all, Lukashenko stated that no country is independent.

Could it be that some Russians are so sick and tired of the war that they've decided to turn on Putin?

Its possible. Theres already Russian opposition to Putin. Such as Russian fighters fighting in behalf of Ukraine.

Saying that every Russian supports Putin is like saying that every American supports Donald Trump. They are far from being unanimously supported.

Honestly I feel like it's most likely just proof that Russia's border is practically undefended, which wouldn't be crazy. They have an unbelievable amount of border to monitor with no real military or technological means of monitoring most of it. Then once you get inside it's nearly all rural farmland and tundra outside the cities where a random car could drive for hours in any direction without anyone even noticing.

Amnesty International: New history textbook is a blatant attempt to unlawfully indoctrinate school children in Russia and Russian-occupied Ukrainian territories

Children in Russia and Russian-occupied Ukraine went back to school today but with a new curriculum. It teaches the children why Russia was right to invade Ukraine to protect Russian speakers from being genocides by neo-Nazis who are being led by NATO. In addition, older children are being given firearms training to get them used to handling Kalashnikovs.

This is pure indoctrination and preparing the young kids to be new blood in Putin's war.

I mean, yeah, they've been stealing children since the beginning of the war. It's one of the key reasons why countries are calling it a genocide and not just regular warfare.
