Russia invades Ukraine

Ugh.
Yes.
Government buildings…

and residential buildings…

… so if there’s still anyone arguing today that we should believe Putin’s claims about not harming civilians, this’ll be my response (b----- please :roll_eyes: ):

Off to go vote in the Texas primary, before work.

A couple more:

Translation:

A town 50 km from Kiev. An enemy plane destroyed two houses.
Russia and Belarus continue to blaspheme all norms of international humanitarian law.

Translation:

In Kherson, the shopping center “Fabrika” is on fire, on which the Russians launched a missile attack. Video from locals.

The British Army’s whizz-bang Comms & Nav system, BOWMAN was known by squaddies as Better Off With Map And Nokia, so it wouldn’t surprise me at all that russian troops might like to have a phone with Google maps on it for backup and terrain intel.

They apparently have a large number of the things on order already, from the before times. But they take time to produce, and weren’t meant to be delivered till later this year. It’s not the sort of thing where there’s a thousand of them in a warehouse waiting to be picked up.

So I’m sure a couple more will get delivered with stuff from Turkey, Ukraine has already paid for more. It’s not even aid at that point.

Is the tide of war starting to swing? Are the russians sliding into full disarray? Maybe these ideas should be sandboxed.

Well that’s not good… What about drones? Seriously, that convoy would be shredded with a dozen Predator drones. Just call in Ukrainian pilots to “fly” them.
