Speaking of media supression:
Wait…wasn’t this the relief convoy…
It’s convoys all the way down. Maybe we could gift them one of our freedom convoys. We have more than we need.
If it’s propaganda (and who knows; we’re not beneath that), it’d be a great way to demoralize the troops that waiting for them.
And ++++++ to sending them our excess convoy action. I’m sure snarky signs and stars-n-bars will be super helpful.
And PILLOWS. LOTS of pillows.
Which reminds me that this situation has pushed a lot of people off the front-page news.
Yes, I wonder what idiot pillow guy thinks of this situation, and which side he’s preparing to launch pillows to?
Interesting twist with the EU!
The heroes fighting to liberate Ukraine from fascist tyranny need a good night’s sleep. /s
That one needs the long sleep.
Unconfirmed, but it could explain some things if true…
The Ukrainian Ground Forces posted a song written for #BayraktarTB2 on their official social media account with the note “Bayraktar avenges Ukrainian children, Georgians, Syrians, Chechens and Crimean Tatars.” https://twitter.com/clashreport/status/1498702199765049347/video/1
Oh my goodness. That’s absolutely incredible. Even translated it has so much power, given the context.
Some large number of thesis will be written just about the social media propaganda warfare going on here.
ETA: Downthread the memes:
It’s not just the social media propaganda that is impressive. The OSINT community is doing an incredible job of geolocating Russian military movements and debunking Russian disinformation. There is a twitter thread (ShadowBreak Intelligence) that talks about all the amateur radio enthusiasts who are tracking, recording and translating unsecured Russian comms.
Wow. I am pretty sure that radio is a Baofeng UV-82:
I own a couple UV-5R+. They are amazing for how cheap they are, but secure they are not.
Vladdy is doing such a great job freeing the Ukrainians from the Nazis
