And in total 200.000 Ukrainian children abducted and deported to Russia. Where they can be assimilated and grow up as proper Russians.

Currently occupied UA territory in comparison to equal amount of sqkm in other European countries.



https://twitter.com/Kasparov63/statu...nVAmDKz7w&s=19
It would have been more meaningful if the divide in Germany followed the West/East divide from 30 years ago East Germany was ~110 sq km, a bit less than the occupied territory in Ukraine.

Re: World War 3 or just a local spat in Ukraine?

thanks for the link. sounds a bit sensationalist to be honest. i guess we'll have to wait for the truth to come out.

Russia is winning the economic war - and Putin is no closer to withdrawing troops

The perverse effects of sanctions means rising fuel and food costs for the rest of the world – and fears are growing of a humanitarian catastrophe. Sooner or later, a deal must be made

Fascism in all its horror. But it's not the first time the "Soviets" did that.

And the world is.....watching. Just it: watching.

It's an opinion piece written by a Russian, don't assume it represent a shift in the view of the West towards Russia. I personally disagree with a lot of points she's made, but it still remains to be seen how this will play out.
i can still remember when russias losses were unsustainable and that their resources and fuel would be finished..like 2 months ago!
the wests view towards russia might not have changed but their reporting/propaganda seems to have.

At the same time we all remember how the "special operation" was supposed to be a few weeks thing...3 months ago. And we also remember the 7 days to the Rhine as well, so what's your point?

Re: World War 3 or just a local spat in Ukraine?

Putin getting chaotic.

Quote:
Russian President Vladimir Putin fired a slew of generals earlier this week as Moscow continues to experience losses among its top officers and generals during its invasion of Ukraine.

Five top generals — Maj. Gens. Vasily Kukushkin, Alexander Laas, Andrey Lipilin, Alexander Udovenko and Yuri Instrankin — in addition to Police Colonel Emil Musin were fired by the Russian president on Monday, the Russian newspaper Pravda reported last Wednesday.
Earlier it became known that Putin dismissed Lieutenant General Valery Balan from the post of Deputy Director of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN). Balan has held this post since April 1, 2019.

According to Tass, the Russian central bank, which targets inflation of 4%, said the annual increase in consumer prices was on track to reach to 18-23% in the whole of 2022; only double the inflation rate in the West

i just find all the fake news rather funny. also that people still actually believe it! but as i said, reality always catches up to fantasy (and im pretty sure the idea that putler said the special operation would only last a few weeks is more fake news too)

Actually in the real world, if you look at the map below you can see Putin has made considerable troop withdrawals and the Ukrainians are still pushing them back; the incredibly shrinking occupation army.

You are not quoting correctly. This particular snippet is only re Donbas, not about the overall situation in Ukraine. This is the full quote:

Quote:
Russia is now achieving tactical success in Donbas. Russian forces have generated and maintained momentum and currently appear to hold the initiative over Ukrainian opposition.

Re: World War 3 or just a local spat in Ukraine?

Nobody questions that Russia has not achieved any of its targets. But it is undoubtedly making some progress in the Donbas (at enormous cost) and even if its offensive stalls, I doubt Ukraine can push them back to their pre-war positions.

Which means Russia will sit on that land and this will be another forever conflict that will cost Ukraine, Russia and the West a lot.

The unpalatable truth in Ukraine
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opini...ine/ar-AAY0xc3

And the truth is, once we have eliminated all the impossible scenarios, the least improbable outcome of the war in Ukraine is a Russian victory.
