What’s the matter with you Lordo, did you fail your Western Hypocrisy 101 course? :lol:

Boris is about to cancel all your benefits because you’re not toeing the line boy! :)


Apart from your latest hissy fit, that, preceded by an extensive period of “Your dead mother was a whore” intellectual type stuff, you’ve been posting relentlessly on this war for 90 days now. I’d be surprised if you haven’t hit 1000 or thereabouts. Throughout, you’ve never contributed anything but good news about the Russian army’s outstanding performance. Plus of course how the country’s economy is booming as a result of it’s isolation, caused by the departure of some 1000 western companies and the sanctions regime being imposed. Not forgetting copious stuff about how the much hated west is doomed because of it all.

If you truly believe that’s the case I have to say I admire your Jesuit-like devotion, but sadly have to qualify it by saying that IMHO, not only are you clearly psychotic but also it seems a naive idiot.

Highlighting your nauseating hypocrisy is neither psychotic nor naïve… but I do understand your pain having been exposed, although I don’t agree with making yourself look worse with a personal attack... not that I ever expect a witty comeback from someone like you anyway! :)

Those who follow the REAL news as it happens on Telegram instead of the West’s propaganda media know exactly what’s going on the front-lines, but from time to time some rare honest articles do appear in the West also that tell it like it is!

Here are some of those for your perusal…

Russia is losing, the Russian people are against this barbaric invasion costing the lives of thousands of their soldiers . Putin's popularity has evaporated. Only those with a mental problem would support this invasion.

I have no idea what compels some of you idiots to post out your backsides!

This is not some kind of fantasy competition we’re having here, so how about you conduct some RESEARCH for once in your lives before opening your mouths…

Putin’s approval rate at home soars one month into Ukraine invasion
The independent Levada Center found that Mr. Putin’s domestic approval rating shot up more than 10 percentage points in March to 83%, up from 71% in February.

My research is based on actual facts received from Russian people and Belarusians who prior to the Russian invasion were fervent supporters of Putin. They consider this war as totally unnecessary, a war that has cost the lives of more than 20 thousand Russian troops. Russia has lost thus far more troops that it lost in 9 years in Afghanistan.The Russian people value life and can sympathise with the anguish that families of lost soldiers are experiencing.
Russia is losing the war in more ways than one. It's economy has been severely affected and it's international image tarnished. Putin will soon be sent to a sanatorium if not assassinated in the meantime.

So you know personally a small number of Russians who don’t approve… but it’s not enough to make a sweeping statement for the whole nation.

It would only take a few seconds to type “Putins approval rate” and get a more reliable answer.

As for the rest of your post… it’s a prediction and you’re entitled to your predictions.

The " few" people I know also them selves know a "few" people. I have been closely interacting with Russian people for 12 years now, I believe that my knowledge of them is a touch more than yours .

Only, it's not MY knowledge but data from the link I gave you!

There are MANY links on the Internet giving the same data 80+ % approval rate, so are you implying that you are in a better position than them? :)

Unlike you who relies exclusively on the internet I draw my own conclusions from interacting with people on the ground. Do remember that Russia is a dictatorship same as Belarus.
Russian citizens can not express their TRUE feelings in fear of likely repercussions.
