«Финляндия точно готова помогать»

Санна Марин в Буче – городке, который стал
 настоящим олицетворением зверств
 российских военных.

Премьер-министр Финляндии Санна Марин в четверг побывала с коротким визитом в Украине. Вечером пресс-служба правительства сообщила, что Марин провела переговоры с премьер-министром Украины Денисом Шмыгалём.
По мнению Марин, украинцам очень важно чувствовать, что их не бросили и про них не забыли. 
«Финляндия всегда готова оказывать помощь»,
добавила политик в этом же интервью.
«Очень тяжело смотреть на то, что Россия сотворила с этими городами.»

Санна Марин: 
«необходимо ужесточить санкции против России и увеличить масштаб помощи Украине. ... Финляндия точно готова помогать.»
«Украина – это часть европейской семьи и Финляндия поддерживает Украину на её пути к ЕС», - сообщается в заявлении. «Важно сформировать конкретный пошаговый план по вступлению Украины в ЕС», 
считает Санна Марин.
Однако об упрощённой процедуре вступления Украины в ЕС речи не идёт.

Ongoing War

This war will not stop after any concessions. Perhaps the Bear will just be put on pause for some time.
Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said to Reuters-  in an interview in the presidential office on Saturday - that making concessions would backfire on Ukraine because Russia would hit back harder after any break in fighting. 
He has ruled out a ceasefire with Russia and said Kyiv would not accept any deal with Moscow that involved ceding territory.
“After a while, with renewed intensity, the Russians will build up their weapons, manpower and work on their mistakes, modernize a little, fire many generals … And they'll start a new offensive, even more bloody and large-scale,” 
Podolyak said.
Head of the Ukrainian President’s Office Andriy Yermak
echoed Podolyak’s words, tweeting Sunday that “the war must end with the complete restoration of Ukrainian territorial integrity and sovereignty.”
“Russia can't be left halfway because the bear will develop a 'revanchist' mood and be even more cruel.”
We know this Russian Bear.

Nu inleds de farligaste månaderna i vår moderna historia

Finlands statsminister Sanna Marin (videoinspelning).
Finland har lämnat besked om att de vill gå med i Nato utan vissas dröjsmålen. Nu inleds den farligaste perioden i modern tid för Finland och even för Sverige också.
Sant att Sverige och Finland tar nu snabba och samordnade steg mot det historiska beslutet att söka medlemskap i försvarsalliansen. 
Regeringen håller ett extra nödlägesammanträde redan på måndag för att ta det formella beslutet om en svensk Natoansökan. Omedelbart efter mötet kommer ansökan att skickas in, om inget oförutsett inträffar. 
Vid niotiden idag skickade Finlands statsminister Sanna Marin och presidenten Sauli Niinistö ut ett pressmeddelande om att de är för ett finskt Natomedlemskap och att Finland utan dröjsmål måste skicka in en ansökan. 
Imorgon ska den säkerhetspolitiska analysgruppen där alla riksdagspartier är representerade bli klara med sin rapport som ska presenteras på en presskonferens klockan 10. Det kommer inte att finnas någon tydlig skrivning om att Sverige bör gå med i Nato men slutsatsen kommer att framgå mellan raderna, enligt flera källor. Vänsterpartiet och Miljöpartiet som båda är emot Natomedlemskap väntas reservera sig.
På söndag den 15 maj håller den socialdemokratiska partistyrelsen ett extra sammanträde där de väntas fatta beslutet att ansöka om medlemskap.
Dagen efter, på måndagen den 16 maj klockan 10.30, blir det en extra riksdagsdebatt om den säkerhetspolitiska analysen. 
Enligt Expressens källor kommer statsminister senare under måndagen kalla till ett extra regeringssammanträde där det historiska beslutet ska fattas. Direkt efter mötet kommer ansökan om Natoansökan att skickas in, om inget oförutsett inträffar.
På tisdagen den 17 maj kommer den finske presidenten Sauli Niinistö till Sverige.

Russian Victory Day parade near Kiev

Destroyed tank column in Ukraine.
Smoldering Russian column of tanks burned to the ground by heroic Ukrainian resistance on the outskirts of Kyiv.
See the Incredible photo show a smoldering Russian column, incinerated by Ukrainian resistance, as Putin’s siege of Kyiv stalled.
The biggest war in Europe since World War II has already raged 24. march. Vladimir Putin aven advanced towards the capital Kiev but brave Ukrainians fighted it back.
A suburban avenue in Bucha became one of the first graveyards for Russia's hopes of encircling and entering Kyiv and then deposing the government of President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Now Moscow says, without proof or any reliability, that its war aims in central Ukraine have been achieved, and they never included capturing Kyiv.

Monday’s papers tell of the May Day celebrations

The scene of the accident and the suspectPhoto by an eyewitness.
Central Finland police also said that May Day Eve was much, much livelier than in the past two years, as restaurants were allowed to remain open late. On the evening of the last day of April three people injured by reckless driver near Esplanade
This most serious incident took place around 7 pm. Police said that a patrol ordered the hesitation driver to stop on Pohjoisranta in the Kruununhaka district, but he failed to do so.
 Photo by an eyewitness.

Police saw when one man from upper class drove at high speed through the city centre, hitting eight cars on Pohjoisesplanadi, one of the parallel boulevards alongside Esplanade Park.
According to an Yle reporter at the scene, the black car drove at high speed from Aleksanterinkatu to Unioninkatu and then onto Pohjoisesplanadi.
The suspect endangered the safety of numerous bystanders while driving, police said
The area is adjacent to the Havis Amanda statue and the Market Square, traditionally a centre of May Day Eve celebrations. Authorities estimate that tens of thousands of people were gathered in the area.

Photo: "Seiska".
Three people were injured, including the suspect. Social media videos show the man resisting and yelling Amen, Amen, Amen as he was wrestled to the ground by four police officers in the middle of the street after the final crash.
Helsinki police suspect the 33-year-old public servant of aggravated endangerment of traffic safety, aggravated drunk or drug driving, grievous bodily injury, resisting an official and insubordination, the police said in a statement.
"Yesterday I blew up zeros in Espa after hearing several witnesses (police and ambulance staff),"
he writes on social media.
The police don't even talk about alcohol.

The comedian turned President

His sense of humor is still intact. 
“It’s a means of survival,” 
says Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the war hero.
Zelensky himself, come from the worlds of acting and show business.

According to Time:
"... The military informed Zelensky that Russian strike teams had parachuted into Kyiv to kill or capture him and his family. “Before that night, we had only ever seen such things in the movies,” says Andriy Yermak, the President’s chief of staff.
As Ukrainian troops fought the Russians back in the streets, the presidential guard tried to seal the compound with whatever they could find. A gate at the rear entrance was blocked with a pile of police barricades and plywood boards, resembling a mound of junkyard scrap more than a fortification.
Friends and allies rushed to Zelensky’s side, sometimes in violation of security protocols. Several brought their families to the compound. If the President were to be killed, the chain of succession in Ukraine calls for the Speaker of parliament to take command. But Ruslan Stefanchuk, who holds that post, drove straight to Bankova Street on the morning of the invasion rather than taking shelter at a distance.
Stefanchuk was among the first to see the President in his office that day. “It wasn’t fear on his face,” he told me. “It was a question: How could this be?” For months Zelensky had downplayed warnings from Washington that Russia was about to invade. Now he registered the fact that an all-out war had broken out, but could not yet grasp the totality of what it meant. “Maybe these words sound vague or pompous,” says Stefanchuk. “But we sensed the order of the world collapsing.” Soon the Speaker rushed down the street to the parliament and presided over a vote to impose martial law across the country. Zelensky signed the decree that afternoon.
As night fell that first evening, gunfights broke out around the government quarter. Guards inside the compound shut the lights and brought bulletproof vests and assault rifles for Zelensky and about a dozen of his aides. Only a few of them knew how to handle the weapons. One was Oleksiy Arestovych, a veteran of Ukraine’s military intelligence service. “It was an absolute madhouse,” he told me. “Automatic  for everyone.” Russian troops, he says, made two attempts to storm the compound. Zelensky later told me that his wife and children were still there at the time."
Here we go.

Роскомнадзор заблокировал крупнейшую в Финляндии послеобеденную газету

Россия заблокировала сайт газеты Ilta-Sanomat
"Это было в какой-то степени ожидаемо", 
говорит о блокировке сайта главный редактор Йоханна Лахти
Ilta-Sanomat публикует статьи о войне в Украине также на русском языке. 
I=S начала публиковать новости на русском языке 14 марта, чтобы предоставить независимую информацию о войне в Украине русскоязычной аудитории. 
"Мы переводили на русский язык именно статьи о суровой реальности войны в Украине, о страданиях мирных жителей, о российских солдатах в Украине, а также редакционные и оценочные статьи. Мы хотим предоставить русскоязычной общественности фактическую информацию о нападении, чего нет на официальных российских каналах. Запрет говорит о том, что наши статьи заметили в России", 
говорит Лахти.
Первым переведенным текстом была упомянутая выше статья о жертвах войны Яри Алениуса и Анны Нуутинен. На русский язык статью перевела Элиза Иивонен.
РОСКОМНАДЗОР закрыл доступ к сайтам многих западных СМИ, ссылаясь на российский закон о СМИ и его статью 15.3. Закон позволяет блокировать доступ к сайтам, содержащим в том числе призывы к беспорядкам, экстремизму или участию в незаконных митингах.

Россия резко ограничила свободу прессы и свободу слова после начала широкомасштабного вторжения в Украину 24 февраля. Практически все российские независимые СМИ были закрыты, а доступ ко многим международным новостным сайтам был ограничен. В этот список входят британская вещательная компания BBC и немецкая вещательная компания Deutsche Welle. Социальные сети также были ограничены.
Статьи Ilta-Sanomat на русском языке можно найти по ссылке.

Вот список известных веб-сайтов, которые были заблокированы или подвергнуты цензуре в России, включая текущие и прошлые блокировки. Федеральная служба по надзору в сфере связи, информационных технологий и массовых коммуникаций (Роскомнадзор) ведет официальный обязательный список с 2012 года.

The psychosis of lying

Russia threatens now but it's a symptom of psychosis to mistake illusion for reality. 

There is such collective psychosis in the Kremlin; They don't even realize that they are missing out on everything they think they want to keep for themselves.
I do not realize how these big kleptocrats can obscure to dark, the entire great Russian people.



Sannolikt inga bindande garantier

”Historien har gjort oss till ett säkerhetsorienterat folk”, 
sade Finlands statsminister Sanna Marin.
Trots sonderingar har Finland inte lyckats få några säkerhetsgarantier från USA eller Nato inför en eventuell medlemsansökan i försvarsalliansen.  
Det kommer dock sannolikt inte vara bindande garantier här och ikke där.
Detta uppger svenska regeringskällor för Expressen
Att Nato eller USA utfärdar någon form av säkerhetsgarantier under en process där Sverige och Finland ansöker om medlemskap har setts som viktigt, inte minst i ljuset av det ryska angreppet på Ukraina.
Jag är säker på att om en Ryska Björnen kommer hit sig till vår land - Joe Biden beklagar, vad den sortens sak händer.

För det väntas ta ett par månader från det att Sverige och Finland lämnar in en eventuell ansökan tills dess att länderna är fullvärdiga medlemmar, eftersom alla Natos länder ska få säga sitt. Och att dessa månader är förknippade med betydande risker, betonas av Expressens regeringskällor. Man hänvisar bland annat till uttalanden från Ryssland om att man kommer vidta militärtekniska åtgärder om Sverige och Finland ansöker om medlemskap. 
Hur dessa åtgärder kan yttra sig är högst oklart. Men det finns från den svenska regeringen en uppenbar oro som flera Expressen pratat med ger uttryck för. 
Att en ansökan är förknippad med risker betonades också av både statsminister Magdalena Andersson och hennes finska kollega Sanna Marin på onsdagens pressträff. 
Och enligt uppgifter gör Svensk regeringen också bedömningen att några säkerhetsgarantier inte finns i dagsläget, trots att Finland eftersträvat detta: Bland annat under president Sauli Niinistös besök i Washington i början av mars, där han förde överläggningar med USA:s president Joe Biden. 
Men detta ska alltså inte ha resulterat i några säkerhetsgarantier från USA inför en Nato-ansökan, som det uppfattas i Stockholm. Men man utesluter samtidigt inte att den typen av utfästelser kan komma att uttalas längre fram, från europeiska länder. 
Men från Moderaterna, som länge drivit på för ett Nato-medlemskap, avfärdar man bilden som ges av regeringen. Att det inte utfärdas säkerhetsgarantier till icke-medlemmar i Nato är rimligt och inte alls konstigt, menar partiet. 
Någon hänvisar till att Nato gett uttryck för att man kan vidta säkerhetsfrämjande åtgärder eller andra ”säkerhetsarrangemang” från det att Sverige och Finland lämnat in sina ansökningar, och är formellt blivit inbjudna till försvarsalliansen.

Look out

Something is happening.
According to The Times Putin ‘purges’ 150 FSB agents in response to Russia’s botched war with Ukraine. Sergei Beseda, 68, has been sent to Lefortovo prison in Moscow after he was placed under house arrest last month.
Sergei Beseda has been sent to Lefortovo prison in Moscow after he was placed under house arrest last month. Like a stalinist mass purge of Russian secret intelligence is under way after more than 100 agents were removed from their jobs and the head of the department responsible for Ukraine was sent to prison.
In a sign of President Putin’s fury over the failures of the invasion, about 150 Federal Security Bureau (FSB) officers have been dismissed, including some who have been arrested.
All of those ousted were employees of the Fifth Service, a division set up in 1998, when Putin was director of the FSB to carry out operations in the countries of the former Soviet Union with the aim of keeping them within Russia’s orbit.
FSB officers carried out searches at more than 20 addresses around Moscow of colleagues suspected of being in contact with journalists.

And this concerns us:

Russian soldiers discussed atrocities against civilians over the radio

An analysis of satellite images by The New York Times
refutes claims by Russia that the killing of civilians in Bucha,
a suburb of Kyiv, occurred after its soldiers had left the town
.

The images of murdered civilians from Bucha shock the world. According to Der Spiegel information, the German intelligence service BND recorded the radio traffic of suspected perpetrators. Accordingly, the brutal acts are part of the strategy of Putin's army.
BND radio messages prove Russian war crimes in Bucha
According to information from the Spiegel, the Federal Intelligence Service intercepted radio messages from the Russian military in which the murders of civilians in Bucha were said to have been discussed. Individual contents of the radio messages should also be able to be assigned to corpses photographed in Butscha.
After the Russian army withdrew from Kyiv and its suburbs, Ukrainian authorities found around 320 bodies in Bucha. Some were found in mass graves, many people were lying on the street.
The Russian government has vehemently denied that Russian forces were responsible for these war crimes. She claimed it was a staging by Ukraine.

Here we see the Russian's assumption that all nations are like Russia, they themselves murder, torture and poison their own citizens.

But numerous journalists, including a reporter for the taz, were there afterwards, spoke to countless witnesses and documented the war crimes.
Now the wiretaps seem to confirm that Russian units are responsible for the atrocities. The material should also show that employees of Russian mercenary troops such as the "Wagner Group" were significantly involved in the crimes. This had already attracted attention during its deployment in Syria due to its particular cruelty. 
According to information from the Spiegel, the BND reported on its findings in the parliamentary room on Wednesday.

How the Russians can lie so enormously?

An analysis of satellite images by The New York Times
refutes claims by Russia that the killing of civilians in Bucha,
a suburb of Kyiv, occurred after its soldiers had left the town
.
Satellite images show bodies lay in Bucha for weeks, despite Russian claims.
Satellite Images According to The New York Times rebut Russia’s Claim on Bucha Satellite images rebut Russia’s claim that the killing of civilians in Bucha occurred after its soldiers had left town, a Times analysis found. 
When images emerged, by AFP, over the weekend of the bodies of dead civilians lying on the streets of Bucha — some with their hands bound, some with gunshot wounds to the head — Russia’s Ministry of Defense denied responsibility. 
In a Telegram post on Sunday, the ministry "suggested" that the bodies had been recently placed on the streets after then “all Russian units withdrew completely from Bucha” around March 30.
But the tyrannical regime of Kreml will not survive with its own the very big lies.
So an analysis of satellite images by The New York Times rebuts claims by Russia that the killing of civilians in Bucha, a suburb of Kyiv, occurred after its soldiers had left the town.

Fucking clowns

Putin comes to the barber shop. The barber cuts dictator's hair and asks all the time about Ukraine. 
How are people doing there? When does the war the special military operation end?
At last Putin get nervous:
"You are moved about this Ukraine far too much, right?"
"Not at all, sir. For me it is totally indifferent."
"Why do you then constantly ask about Ukraine."
"Because each time that I say Ukraine your hair rises up – and it is easier to cut…"
Another true case:
Once when the Ukrainian and Russians were at war, were in special military operations, the Russians heard a shout behind a hill:
"One Ukrainian is equivalent to two Russkis."
The Russian commander sent two men with a special training to deal with the shouter, but neither of them came back. Instead, soon a shout rang out behind the hill:
"One Ukrainian  is equivalent to ten Russkis."
The angry commander immediately sent two commando men behind the hill, but besides a couple of gunshots nothing was heard. The men were gone, but a new shout was heard behind the hill:
"One Ukrainian is equivalent to fifty Russkis."

The furious commander sent an elite group of fifty men behind the hill and for a moment gunshots were heard. When the gunfire ceased, not one Russki came back. Instead, a shout was heard:
"One Ukrainian is equivalent to a hundred Russkis."
Not caring about anything in his fury the commander sent a hundred men behind the hill, where a huge gun-fight began. After some time one badly wounded Russki dragged himself from behind the
hill and said:
"Commander, those Ukrainian lied. There were two of them!"
The same is true for Finns.

Look at this war crime

Ukraine troops retake Kyiv suburb to find 300 in mass grave, 20 left dead on street. One has his hands tied behind his back with a white cloth, and his Ukrainian passport left open beside his corpse, said AFP journalists (Photo by ©Ronaldo Schemidt/ ©AFP) who accessed the town 
See this one. Bodies lie on a street in Bucha, northwest of Kyiv, as Ukraine says Russian forces are making a 'rapid retreat' from northern areas around Kyiv and the city of Chernihiv, on April 2, 2022. 
The bodies are strewn across the quiet tree-lined street in the town of Bucha as far as the eye can see.
Those all about 20 are in civilian clothing, and all have their different poses in death. Some lie with sightless eyes staring at Ukraine’s overcast sky, some lie face down on the tarmac.

Three of them are tangled up in bicycles after taking their final ride, while others, with waxy skin, have fallen next to bullet-ridden and crushed cars. Another lies next to a yellow hoarding spraypainted with happy and sad emojis and the words `Live Fast´.
Russian troops flee Bucha without hiding civilians they killed, including one with his hands tied behind his back, three tangled up in bicycles after taking their final ride.
Ukraine says Russian forces are making a rapid retreat from northern areas around Kyiv and the city of Chernihiv.

«слово, запрещенное в России» - «Спасибо, и до встречи!».

Роскомнадзор вынес редакции и учредителю «Новой газеты» второе письменное. Первое аналогичное предупреждение Роскомнадзор направил редакции 22 марта. Тогда тоже не сообщалось, какая публикация вызвала претензии:
Мы получили еще одно предупреждение Роскомнадзора.
После этого мы приостанавливаем выпуск газеты на сайте, в сетях и на бумаге — до окончания «специальной операции на территории Украины».
С уважением, редакция « Новой газеты»
После начала «спецоперации» в Украине Роскомнадзор запретил СМИ называть боевые действия войной, нападением или вторжением, а также ссылаться на другие источники, кроме официальных российских. Вскоре многие независимые и иностранные СМИ были заблокированы в России под предлогом распространения ложной информации о действиях российских военных.
 «слово, запрещенное в России» -> Война, в которой убивают женщин, детей и стариков, — это геноцид, военное преступление.

На сайте издания отмечается, что два предупреждения Роскомнадзора в год грозят отзывом лицензии СМИ.
В письме, разосланном «Новой» подписчикам, в частности говорится: 
«Другого выхода нет. Для нас, и, знаю, для вас — это страшное и тяжелое решение. Но надо сохранить нас друг для друга. Ваша поддержка важна как никогда. Без вас — не выживем. Спасибо, и до встречи!».
В начале марта в России вступил в силу закон, предусматривающий административную и уголовную ответственность за «дискредитацию» российских военных и распространение «фейков» об их действиях. Максимальное наказание по новым статьям — от штрафов до лишения свободы на срок до 15 лет.
4 марта «Новая газета», как ряд других СМИ, решила удалить материалы, связанные с войной в Украине, из-за принятия закона. На следующий день на сайте издания вышел репортаж Елены Костюченко из Одессы, где, в частности, вместо слова «война» используется фраза «слово, запрещенное в России».

Destroyed Mariupol harbertown


See that: All the houses are shattered down.
A view shows residential buildings which were damaged during Ukraine-Russia conflict in the besieged southern port city of Mariupol.

Some 200 - 300,000 people have been trapped in the strategic port city for over two weeks, sheltering from heavy bombardment that has severed central supplies of electricity, heating and water, according to local authorities.
However Russia denies bombing residential areas or targeting civilians!
Mariupol council said the physical damage to the city has been enormous. It estimated that allmost around 90% of the city's homes had been destroyed, of which almost 30% were beyond repair.
Houses are burning, all the shops are closed and hospitals have been bombed. 
Ukraine said a powerful Russian air strike hit a theatre where more than 1,000 people had been sheltering.
Human rights official Lyudmyla Denisova said to Reuters, about 130 survivors had been rescued from the rubble, but said there was still no information on the fate of the hundreds of others believed to be inside. Russia has denied bombing the building.
There aren't enough doctors to take care of people.

Ukrainian Forces captured Russian Krasukha-4 electronic warfare system!

Ukrainian forces captured near Kyiv what seems to be command post of the 1RL257 Krasukha-4 Electronic Warfare system, considered to be one of the most advanced Russian EW systems currently in service. The containerized system was hastily camouflaged with some tree branches before being abandoned by Russian forces, after it seemingly fell from the truck transporting it.
"We managed to identify this bizarre container, captured today by the UA forces near #Kyiv. " 
- says one fresh Twitter message.
It is likely to be the command post of one of the most potent Russian EW system - 1RL257 other words Krasukha-4. This one used to suppress AWACS radars & radar reconnaissance satellites.
The Krasuha-4 is a broadband multifunctional jamming system designed to neutralize Low Earth Orbit spy satellites such as the US Lacrosse/Onyx series, satellites, ground-based radars, airborne surveillance radars like AWACS and JSTARS, and radar-guided ordinance at ranges between 200-300 km. 
it may also cause damage to enemy radar electronic warfare and communications anr GPS systems in some circumstances. The system is also considered as a protection against unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and anti-radiation missiles (ARMs).
According to the available info, the Krasukha-4 performs detection, processing, analysis and recognition of signals embedded in the operating range of frequencies employed by radars and other radio-emitting sources, before suppressing them with a jam signal transmitted by its three parabolic antennas.
The Krasuha-4 to transmit radio signals without restrictions in azimuth and elevation. The Krasuha-4 EW equipment is mounted on two KAMAZ-6350 vehicles to form the 1RL257 complex.
The first Krasukha-2½ electronic warfare system was delivered to the Russian Ministry of Defense in November 2013. The system, which complements the larger Krasukha-units already in use by the Russian Army, have been reportedly deployed in Syria and Armenia.
With these special devices for electronic warfare, Russia has disturbed e.g. NATO exercises and Finnish airspace.

Murderers and rapists in Ukraine

Women have been raped for hours and then murdered during Russia's invasion of Ukraine.  The Nazis committed the same crimes in the Lapland War in Finland.
Women were raped for hours and then murdered by Russia's war occupation forces,
according to Ukrainian Deputy PM Olha Stefanishyna. She said it to the Sophy Ridge On Sunday programme on Sky News.
"I have the very strong aggression to make sure that each and every military criminal who has committed this crime is held to account".
Ukraine's Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration has said 
Olha Stefanishyna said Ukraine will resist Russia's invasion to ensure "no genocide is committed on this land in the 21st century".
"Each and every soldier who has committed this war crime, by order or not, will be held accountable."
"Be sure, Russian soldiers, that we fix and see it all, and Ukrainian women will stand for each other, and we will prevail."
"That's why we have more than 2,000 cases, criminal cases, opened in our prosecutor's office," 
she said.

Now The sanctions imposed by Western countries on Russia were starting to have a real impact

French government spokesman Gabriel Attal said on Friday sanctions imposed by Western countries on Russia in reaction to Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine were starting to have a real impact.
Attal says to BFM TV:
“We hope these sanctions will force Russian President Vladimir Putin to change his plans.” 
Earlier this week, European Union member states agreed on a fourth package of sanctions against Russia following its invasion of Ukraine, Reuters reported.
One person was killed and four others wounded after parts of a Russian missile fell on a residential building in the northern part of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv on Friday morning, emergencies services said.
The services said in a statement that 12 people were rescued and 98 were evacuated from the five-storey building, Reuters reported.
Add what happened earlier.
Russian-born crossbench peer Lord Evgeny Lebedev wrote an open letter to the Russian leader V. Putin. Lord Evgeny Lebedev has appealed to Vladimir Putin to stop the invasion of Ukraine, through the Evening Standard newspaper.
He used the publication’s front page to write an open letter to the Russian leader.
Evening Standard owner Lebedev uses front page to urge Putin to halt invasion. Evgeny Lebedev is owner of the Evening Standard and The Independent newspapers. 
“At the moment many with Russian roots are under scrutiny, including myself,” 
Lebedev wrote. 
“I understand the reason for this as it is inevitable when events of such magnitude occur and the world order as we have known it in recent decades suddenly gets torn up.”
Evgeny Lebedev, according to The Guardian, the son of a former KGB agent who was given a peerage by Boris Johnson, has insisted he is not a security risk, as the UK imposed sanctions against hundreds of Russian politicians, accusing them of being complicit in the invasion of Ukraine.
After new concerns were raised over the scrutiny process behind Lord Lebedev’s peerage, the media magnate issued a statement through one of the newspaper he owns, the Evening Standard, in which he dismissed the “farcical” speculation as Russophobia.
He said some of the incredible questions posed to him by journalists were absurd as he denied being an agent of Russia. He also condemned the invasion of Ukraine and called on Vladimir Putin to withdraw his troops.
Johnson was last week forced to deny he intervened to secure a peerage for Lebedev after intelligence services warned it would be a security risk, after reports in The Guardian and Sunday Times.
Lebedev, who joined the House of Lords in November 2020 as a crossbencher, said he was “not a security risk to this country, which I love.” 
This note came hours after the Foreign Office imposed sanctions on a further 386 members of the Russian parliament’s lower house – the Duma – taking the total number targeted so far to 400 of its 450 members.
“Being Russian does not automatically make one an enemy of the state, and it is crucial we do not descend into Russophobia, like any other phobia, bigotry or discrimination.” 
Lebedev wrote.
The UK government had been under pressure to act for some time, given the EU issued sanctions against those Duma members who supported the incursion on 23 February.

The UK had previously vowed to punish members of the Russian parliament’s upper house – the Federation Council – with similar sanctions.

David Lammy, the shadow foreign secretary, welcomed the move but said it should have happened weeks ago. He called for the government to “urgently implement” other sanctions to “cut Putin and his criminal cronies out of our economic system”.

His name means "shit derivative" in Finnish.
Layla Moran
, the foreign affairs spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats, said the UK was “moving at a snail’s pace” and that only 18 oligarchs had been sanctioned, meaning “hundreds of Putin’s cronies are still getting away with it”.
She said: 
“Every second wasted is another opportunity for them to take off in their private jets and flee to a safe haven. We need to sanction the lot and seize their assets now.”
UK has announced sanctions against seven Russian oligarchs, including the Chelsea football club owner, Roman Abaramovich, with an estimated combined worth of £15bn.
The other businesspeople accused of having “blood on their hands” were Abramovich’s one-time business partner Oleg Deripaska; Putin’sso called right-hand man Igor Sechin; and four men in the Russian president’s inner circle: Andrey Kostin, Alexei Miller, Nikolai Tokarev and Dmitri Lebedev.

Marina Ovsyannikova,

ы совершили великий подвиг, чтобы защитить человечество и правду - в разгар самой большой кампании лжи в мировой истории. Это будет признано и вознаграждено сейчас.

Девушка, которая вышла в кадр во время прямого эфира программы «Время» на Первом канале с антивоенным плакатом — сотрудница канала Марина Овсянникова.

Марина Овсянникова появи в ефира на съветската национална телевизия с афиш, на който пишеше: " Спрете войната! Не вярвайте на пропагандата! Тук ви лъжат ".

Смелата постъпка Овсянникова извърши по време на новините.

«Полицейский Райдер», Рембрандт

После появления в эфире ее задержали. Сейчас она, предположительно, находится в ОВД «Останкино». Марии Овсянниковой будут помогать адвокаты от ОВД-Инфо Дмитрий Захватов и Анастасия Костанова.Защитники уже приехали в ОВД «Останкино», однако там им сказали, что Овсяснниковой в отделе нет.

Оттуда его, вероятно, доставят в психбольницу, где подвергнут насилию. Раньше то же самое происходило со всеми защитниками человечества.

Защитник человечества: Мы можем только уважать.

Butterfly mines were used in Ukraine - Butterfly mines in the Kharkiv region

Soon as Ukraine attacked by Russia Ukrainian soldiers discovered on the street cluster bombs with anti-personnel  butterfly mines dropped by the Russians in the Kharkiv region in the east of the country, reported the Ukrainian Pravda portal, citing the general staff of the armed forces.
Drop cluster bombs with so called butterfly mines. Color may vary. Finger size. You step on them, take your leg off. So warned the prosecutor general Ukraine Iryna Wenediktowa.
The fact of finding such mines in the Kharkiv region was confirmed by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
 The prosecutor general  stressed, these mines are
 “prohibited throughout the world, prohibited by the Geneva Convention.” 
The Ottawa Treaty also bans anti-personnel mines.
They were used in Afghanistan and other conflicts of the 20th century.
A butterfly mine was seen during an exercise in Hammelburg, Germany in 2007.

Apparently, no international agreements apply to Russia.
It would be good to read in the contracts.
Thus:
If money is scarce, one can use the weapons depots of the ancient Soviet Union without moral problems.


Jiji, solamente un tonto lo mencionara

Solamente un tonto diría eso. 
(Y solo un tonto creería eso)..

I thought the same way when I heard John Lennon’s song Imagine. In a word, this song is naive! The two had really rile cause about this track.

Well, I'm not buggered!

"But that budget was stolen and spent on mega-yachts in Cyprus"

According to Russia’s former Foreign Minister, AndreiVladimirovitj Kozyrev, the causes of Russian aggression are due to a consensus amongst the conservative elite which emerged as early as the mid-1990s. 
Recent Kozyrev called on Russian diplomats to resign and not support the Russian operation in Ukraine. 

Russia billionaires move superyachts to
Maldives as sanctions tighten.
But the Russian Foreign Ministry replied that `Kozyrevshchina´ has always been considered synonymous with betrayal.
Andrej  Kozyrev - who was foreign minister of the Russian Federation under President Boris Yeltsin from August 1991 to January 1996: 
"Russian military. The Kremlin spent the last 20 years trying to modernize its military. Much of that budget was stolen and spent on mega-yachts in Cyprus. But as a military advisor you cannot report that to the President. So they reported lies to him instead. Potemkin military" 
Read this one and more:

 End. Now the Russian Foreign Ministry will not replied

According to Kozyrev there were the hard times in 1991-92 when the Soviet economy came to a complete standstill, when there were barely any medicines, and in some areas even food. [imrussia.org]

"We were handed help, provided with substantial humanitarian aid. Moreover, the U.S. helped us preserve our status as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, to remain the only nuclear state in the territory of the former Soviet Union, and then to remove nuclear weapons from the territory of other former Soviet states. They helped us join the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and other organizations. This all happened at a seminal moment when Russia could have lost everything—both its statehood and international status. America helped us not only to preserve all this, but also to elevate our status. Already in 1993, we began to participate in G7 summits and became a non-full member. Therefore, these `humiliations´ are just myths and lies which are convenient for the Kremlin today."

End.


Deep and permanent fake stories

here comes:
"Sometimes it seems as if the august nations of the world
have become for the time like little boys at school who make
horrid faces at one another and shout resounding threats."
continues ...
"It is not at all easy to be sure what this tremendous growth
of propaganda in the contemporary world signifies, whether
it is a passing phase or something deep and permanent."
F.C. Bartlett, 1942.

Yes, but I believed that I live in another world - but it was not a passing phase.
Fake grounds for wars have been used in 2002 in Iraq and now in 2022 in Ukraine.

More then important

Anonymous hackers did it - they hacked streaming services and TV news channels in Russia to broadcast footage of the country’s war with Ukraine amid a heavy clampdown on information by Vladimir Putin’s government, according to reports.
Early on Monday morgon they hacked Russian news channels like Russia 24, Channel One, and Moscow 24, including streaming sites, to show footage of Russia’s actions in Ukraine as the invasion entered the 12th day.

This was all announced on Twitter with video footage.
The footage showed a message at the end, stating that “ordinary Russians are against the war” and called for Russians to oppose the attack on Ukraine.
“The hacking collective #Anonymous hacked into the Russian streaming services Wink and Ivi (is like Netflix) and live TV channels Russia 24, Channel One, Moscow 24 to broadcast war footage from Ukraine today” 
A brave act, bold acting  ...

Changes

The old macho guy was athletic.
For many people, watching the Russian invasion of Ukraine has felt like a series of “He can’t be doing this” moments. Do you remember this moment?
Yes, the first morning was bad.
This guy has launched the largest ground war in Europe since the Second World War. It is, quite literally, mind-boggling.
“And he wants us to know that, of course. It’s not that we should be intimidated and scared…. We have to prepare for those contingencies and figure out what is it that we’re going to do to head them off., says Fiona Hill, one of America’s most clear-eyed Russia experts. 

Russia’s Vladimir Putin acts increasingly operating emotionally and likely to use all the weapons at his disposal, including nuclear ones. It’s important not to have any illusions — but equally important not to lose hope.
For years we got to live on our toes because of this one fucking crazy Trump in USA, and now this one another - it's gonne get our minds confused. Allmost.
But.
Is he even the same being as before?
He looks so sick. Why?
Finnish President Sauli Niinistö says that he no longer knows Putin as the same person as he was before!
Incidentally
The censorship with which he tries to prevent writing the news from war is completely sick.

О цене войны для россиян:

Експерти Центру оборонних стратегій також зауважують, що російські війська втратили вже біля третини свого складу: станом на 6 березня втрати ворога оцінюються в 11 тисяч вбитими та 30-35 тисяч пораненими - чисельність угруповання вторгнення — 145 тисяч.

The scale and strength of Ukrainian resistance continue to surprise Russia

Animated Gif by Helsingin Sanomat.
Strength of Ukraine resistance continues to surprise Russia - says British intelligence report. 
Russian forces are targeting populated areas in Ukraine but the strength of resistance has slowed the Russian advance, British military intelligence reveals.
In its daily intelligence report, the UK’s ministry of defence said the strength of Ukraine’s resistance continues to surprise Russia, which has responded by targeting cities including Kharkiv, Chirnihiv and Mariupol.
Russia is now “attempting to conceal fuel trucks as regular support trucks in an effort to conceal losses.” 
It responded by targeting populated areas in multiple locations, including Kharkiv, Chernihiv and Mariupol.
This is likely to represent an effort to break Ukrainian morale.
Russia has repeatedly denied that it is targeting civilian areas, but according to The Gguardian Russia has previously used similar tactics in Chechnya in 1999 and Syria in 2016, employing both air and ground-based munitions.
The intelligence report also says that there is a realistic possibility.

Ложные новости съедают правду

«Англосаксам нужна война. Любой ценой», 
— указала официальный представитель МИД РФ Мария Захарова.
Типичные фейковые новости в российских СМИ. 
Ведущие информационные агентства России сообщили о пожаре в районе крупнейшей в Украине атомной электростанции, не сообщив правды о том, что причиной пожара стало нападение собственных сил России. 
Россия начала бомбить военные и гражданские объекты по всей Украине, включая больницы и жилые дома. ВСУ держат оборону и заявляют о небывалых потерях российской армии.
