    That thing can carry that much ordinance and loiter for 45 minutes?

    Terminator was way off there won't be any meaningful human resistence

    So the 10th largest yacht in the world, the Ocean Victory, owned by Russian oligarch Victor Rashnikov, who is under sanctions, is docking in Alaska tomorrow. 90 (probably reprehensible) people aboard (plus crew). Would be kinda cool if we seized that shit…

    12th now, but still, seize that shit, mount some armor and cannons of it, hand it over to the ukrainian navy. (yes i know the last few parts are idle dreams, but the idea of the russian navy shooting that piece of overcompensation to smithereens would be so amusing to me.

    Not sure how you know about it, but I'd hope the US/International Agencies would know this as well. I'd still report what you know so that there's records of someone saying it's a thing.

    Not sure how to share just one video from Twitter. It always shows multiple. The top video is a dupe, but the face had to be shared.

    I can see Russia from my house.

    But sadly I believe he’s only under EU and UK sanctions, not US.

    Sets a dangerous precedent for US Capitalists. Hits a little too close to home. Puts thoughts in the minds of the masses that the bosses would prefer they did not have.

    Hard to tell who is “winning” this new phase of the war but it is very clear that it is inflicting much higher casualty rates on Ukraine than the first phase did.

    personally from what I can gather Russia may be holding a slight lead in this phase…but they still haven’t accomplished anything of note.

    yeah I think Zelensky sees the American public losing interest in Ukraine and is trying to win over the most pro Putin segment of the Far Right
