    "President Vladimir Putin said in a televised address overnight on Wednesday that Russia will conduct a military operation in eastern Ukraine.

    Putin said the action comes in response to threats coming from Ukraine. He added that Russia doesn’t have a goal to occupy the country. Putin said the responsibility for bloodshed lies with the Ukrainian “regime.”"

    Good luck with that. Won't execute the Minsk Agreements; constant shelling and killing of ethnic Russians in the Donbass; import weapons and foreign 'advisors'; begging for NATO membership; threatening nuclear war with Russia.

    What the hell you think would happen.

    Lots of countries in Europe want more territory and more resources than their current borders provide. The best NATO allies can do is to make sure Russia feels a real economic penalty for a long time while helping Ukrainian resistance spill a lot of Russian blood. Otherwise this will not be the last land war in Europe in our lifetimes.

    We need to cut all economic ties to Russia and pressure everyone else to do the same

    Bloodymir is going to get thousands killed out of some misguided desire to prop up and expand his regime. He has to go, one way or another.

    "We decided to launch a special military action [...] aimed at demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine."

    So does that mean you'd be volunteering and 'doing your bit' in the front lines if America entered the war? Or are you happy to just sit at home watch the war unfold on TV while other Americans and their NATO Allies do all the killing and dying.

    I guess we'll find out how tough the Neo-nazi AZOV Battalion and their type are. They've been real brave shelling women, children, grannies and such in the Donbas for the last 8 years.

    I’ve said what we could have done. None of which is direct combat but definitely more than Biden has done. He’s a coward

    Biden condemns Russia’s ‘unprovoked and unjustified attack’ on Ukraine, says he will impose further consequences

    President Biden said “the world will hold Russia accountable,” adding that he would consult with world leaders and speak to the American public on Thursday about actions against Russia.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/worl...9.3TxUZfBctzxQNgULJG8D_gaIw3t2ly-Jtc49GoviH2Y


    Putin is now saying that if anyone interferes......... they will pay dearly. He is taking on the whole world............(except for china)

    This is not good at all. Think Cyber attacks....... and other nefarious actions against anyone that opposes him.

    Ukraine's air defenses are being taken out..........


    He has fabricated lies to justify his actions.......and spread this disinformation to the Russian population..........

    It is worth remembering that for weeks now Putin, Russian media and the Putin supporters on these boards have been denying eny invasion was being planned. Not just once, but repeatedly.

    I'll leave it to others to work out which of those sources were deliberately misleading people and which were uncritically repeating the lies of others.

    What is clear, and has been for years to anyone paying attention, is that none of those sources near or far have a shred of credibility. They need to be treated as such.

    Playtime's over. I'm hearing that the Russians are coming in at Mariupol. Azov is getting its chance to show how tough they are.

    Yes it is. I've heard the same thing. Also explosions around Kiev and Odessa.
