"The Russian Ministry of Defence insisted that the explosions that destroyed at least eight warplanes at Saki Air Base in Russian-occupied Crimea on August 9 were due to “a violation of fire safety requirements.”
The implication is that some careless Russian smoker tossed away his cigarette butt and caused a fire that set off explosions.

That’s hardly a testimonial to the discipline of the Russian air force’s ground crews, but it’s better than admitting that Ukrainian missiles have reached 225km behind Russian lines to destroy a whole squadron of Russian fighters...

Avgas , which modern jets use is very hard to ignite , basically kerosene with 5% lubricating oil added . Probably a bit of a porkie .

A stunning security blunder allows Ukraine to destroy the Russian Wagner Group mercenaries base


Ukraine used US-supplied Himars to destroy the military headquarters of notorious Russian private military contractor Wagner, after a Russian state television reporter seemed to give away its location by posting photos online.

A Ukrainian official on Monday confirmed Russian media reports that the base in Popasna, in eastern Ukraine, was targeted by a Ukrainian missile strike. Some estimated that as many as 100 fighters were... killed.

Several die-hard, pro-war Russian voices on Monday expressed outrage at the Russian state television reporter who was careless enough to post pictures that would make the base easy to geolocate.

That's 14 Crimean weapons depots destroyed in the last 24 hours!

Pretty soon they'll be throwing rocks at us. :)

Russian State Hackers Continue to Attack Ukrainian Entities with Infostealer Malware​



Extract:
Russian state-sponsored actors are continuing to strike Ukrainian entities with information-stealing malware as part of what's suspected to be an espionage operation.

Symantec, a division of Broadcom Software, attributed the malicious campaign to a threat actor tracked Shuckworm, also known as Actinium, Armageddon, Gamaredon, Primitive Bear, and Trident Ursa. The findings have been corroborated by the Computer Emergency Response Team of Ukraine (CERT-UA).

The threat actor, active since at least 2013, is known for explicitly singling out public and private entities in Ukraine. The attacks have since ratcheted up in the wake of Russia's military invasion in late 2022.

That's not doing them much good at the moment - the promised major counter attack seems to be going well in both Kherson and Crimea

Kremlin Reportedly Panicky And Desperate For ‘Bloody War’ In Ukraine To End

"A high-ranking official from the Kremlin has secretly reached out to western diplomats with information that could possibly end the war in Ukraine. Based on reports from an official, who supposedly is a member of President Vladimir Putin’s elite inner circle, approached the West claiming that the Kremlin is in a state of complete panic and utter disarray.
The insider said that Russia is desperately looking for possible negotiations to end the fighting in a favorable manner...

Curators saving Ukraine’s heritage at all costs​



Extract:
When she understood Russian troops were advancing in the region of Zaporizhzhia, Natalya Chergik helped to fill a truck with a ton of paintings, antique firearms and 17th-century ceramics.

“We drove 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) in five days. The trip was awful, planes were flying over us and we did not even know if they were Ukrainian or not,” she recounts.

“The hardest part for us was to convince people at checkpoints not to search the artwork and to let the truck through as quickly as possible.”

Chergik is a curator at Khortytsia, a museum-island in the Dnipro river of around 30 square kilometers (11.6 square miles) that was a base for Ukrainian Cossacks from the 16th century.

Russia is retreating from Kherson & the destruction of Russia’s military bases continues.


Russia’s Chechen army has largely deserted and joined up with the UDF to fight for Ukraine.


There are also similar mutterings amongst the Belarusian troops on the border

Now our main concern is the NPP in Zaporozhzhia!

Putin’s Ukraine genocide is rooted in Russian impunity for Soviet crimes

2022-05-15T195137Z_176190147_RC2N7U905DNX_RTRMADP_3_UKRAINE-CRISIS-MARIUPOL-scaled-e1660693313...jpg

"In summer 1941, as the outside world first began to learn of the mass murders accompanying the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill memorably declared, “We are in the presence of a crime without a name.”

This is no longer the case. In 1948, the United Nations adopted the Genocide Convention based in large part on the visionary efforts of Raphael Lemkin, a lawyer born in modern-day Ukraine who coined the term “genocide.” Lemkin was driven by the idea that crimes committed on the national scale must not go unpunished. He warned that impunity would be seen as an invitation for further atrocities. Unless crimes against humanity were punished, they would be repeated.

When seeking to define genocide, Lemkin highlighted the crimes committed by the Soviet regime in Ukraine. He saw the Kremlin’s systematic efforts to destroy the Ukrainian nation as a “classic example of Soviet genocide.” The central event of the Soviet Union’s genocidal campaign in Ukraine was the murder of over four million Ukrainians through artificial famine in the early 1930s.

The Soviet authorities experienced almost no negative consequences as a result of this unparalleled slaughter. Indeed, just months after the peak of the famine, the United States granted the USSR official recognition. The outside world simply refused to listen to the handful of courageous voices such as British journalist Gareth Jones who attempted to shed light on the apocalyptic reality of the famine...

Erdoğan walks a fine line as the Ukraine war’s double agent​

Erdogan.jpg

"Whose side are you really on?

That's the question that's bound to loom large in the mind of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy when he meets his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in Lviv on Thursday. Of all the members of the NATO alliance, Erdoğan is easily the most slippery in terms of his allegiances.

On the one hand, Zelenskyy has grounds to thank the Turkish leader. Erdoğan is trying to present himself as a neutral power broker on the Black Sea, mediating between Russia and Ukraine to allow grain exports to resume out of blockaded ports. A Turkish company — one of whose executives is Erdoğan's son-in-law — is the supplier of the Bayraktar drones that have given Ukrainian forces a decisive boost on the battlefield, to the fury of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Erdoğan has also closed the Black Sea to Russian naval reinforcements through the Bosphorus.

On the other hand, Turkey is facing accusations of being a war profiteer, or rather what sanctions experts call a "black knight" — a nation that helps in the evasion of international embargoes for its own benefit. A surge in Turkey-Russia trade and the adoption of a Russian payment system by Turkish banks since the outbreak of the war has triggered speculation that Ankara has spotted the advantages of giving Moscow a helping hand as its own mismanaged and inflation-crippled economy lurches out of control...

He will carry on like this so long as the money is there, and no one has balls to stand up to him.

Guided by British special forces, Ukraine is escalating the 'deep battlespace' fight against Russia

"We've seen an arms depot explode at Timonovo in the Russian oblast of Belgorod. This area serves as a key logistics hub for Russian operations in northern and eastern Ukraine. In addition, there are multiple reports of explosions near the Russian airfield in Stary Oskol. Sixty miles from the Ukrainian border, Stary Oksol is just 55 miles from Voronezh, the headquarters of a major command of Russia's Western Military District. There have also been explosions around the Kherson dam, located at the southern juncture of the Dnieper river. Ukrainian forces are slowly moving to retake Kherson. Reports of explosions across the Crimean Peninsula also abounded on Thursday, though these may be the result of Russian air defense activity.

Yet, in the context of recent Ukrainian strikes against a major Russian naval aviation base in Crimea and explosions over the past three months at numerous military sites deep inside Russian territory, we can be confident that the Ukrainian forces are responsible for at least some of Thursday's incidents...

That might have been better posted in the Political Jokes thread except that it isn’t funny.

Maybe you should concentrate on copying/pasting stories of foreign companies setting up in the UK with government subsidies.
