...update from Ukraine.

While the "Russians" have a bigger everything, it seems that the Ukrainians are still capable of putting up a fight; i recall Afghanistan with less support: Ukraine may force Putin to withdraw, this risk remains.

Well, there’s a big surprise:

Although, he couldn’t have been too much of a threat. Or, he’d be joining Navalny, incarcerated for regularly increasing, consecutive terms (now in Siberia). Each based upon trumped up charges. Assassinating the man, with the usual GRU “calling card”, having humiliatingly failed.

Like most Dictators, Putin doesn’t tolerate any remotely credible opposition. Whilst maintaining a facade of democratic elections.

The result of this one will undoubtedly be spun as a (face saving) presentation of an overwhelming endorsement of his war. Nazhidin - now removed - being the most credible focal point for anti-war votes.

This was not announced in the MSM, so I thought I would post it on this thread for information ..........

ICJ Rules Against Ukraine on Terrorism, MH17 - February 1, 2024

In a blow to Ukraine, the World Court ruled Russia didn’t finance terrorism in Donbass and the court refused to blame Moscow for the downing of Flight MH17. By JoeLauria - The Hague, Netherlands

The World Court ruled on Wednesday that Russia did not finance terrorism in its defense of separatists in Ukraine and the court refused to find Russia guilty of downing Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 as Ukraine had asked.
The case was brought to the ICJ by Ukraine in 2017, three years after the U.S.-backed coup in Kiev overthrew the democratically-elected President Viktor Yanukovych.

When Russian speakers in Donbass rebelled against the unconstitutional change in government that they had voted for, the coup leaders in 2014 launched what it called an “anti-terrorist” military operation to put down the rebellion.

It was clear from the beginning that Ukraine was responsible for the downing of MH17, but that did not stop the co-conspirators of anti Russia gullible in the collective West to blame Russia, just because the missile used to down MH17 was a Russian made, which of course, Ukraine had many of the same missiles in their stockpile. :roll:

...no bodies returned, no investigation either.

Makes me think that the Ukrainians got suckered into firing at what was an empty plane.

..."the war against us", and the scathing commentary that follows.

...interesting, (but) almost an hour long.

Tucker Carlson in Russia; and let's remember, he is the only Journalist (read: Entertainer) who Putin has chosen to talk to from America (and around the world).

You really are a ‘one-string-fiddler:roll: ……….. Putin is always behind anything associated with Russia you can drag up as being dodgy!

Do you really think this guy is any threat to Putin? :lol:

Think about it? Can you put yourself up for the position of President of Cyprus, even as the local Mukhtar or even go for a job in the civil service? NO …… because you have to meet certain criteria ! At least in Russia and Cyprus the people get to vote for their President ………. In the UK the people don’t even get the opportunity to vote for the PM, neither do the MP’s the people voted into Parliament. It is a small group within ‘The Party’ greatly influenced by a rather shadowy elite in power behind the scenes that make the decision !

So stop being so juvenile and look at the article. He failed to meet the requirements he needed to go for it ……… so, like you, he puts the blame on Putin.

Navalney got locked up because he broke the Law not because he and his mates were any threat to Putin …….. he and his mates were just shit stirrers financed by the US ……… you know …….. like the so called Revolution of Culture in Kyiv! A lot of good that did Ukraine!
