It looks like even in Poland, the casualties of the war in Ukraine is piling up. 👇


"The number of wounded is probably three times the number of dead, though that can vary depending on the war's circumstance. It means that in total some 4800 men of the Polish contingent in Ukraine were wounded or killed. Is that one third of the Polish 'mercenary' forces in Ukraine? Is it more? Or less?

We don't know but I expect that quite a lot of regular soldiers of the 16th Pomeranian Mechanised Division in Olsztyn have been 'asked' to take part in the war. The division consists of one armored and two mechanized brigades plus the usual auxiliaries which makes it a 15,000 men strong unit.

The style of Polish graveyards is typical for a Catholic European country. Trees, individual graves, elaborate tombstones, candles and flowers.

It is understandable that people in Poland do not like the plans for an 'American' style military graveyard:

The authorities prepared "special honors" for them. Uniform quarters are being built in Olsztyn: There are to be two slab sizes. Larger (meter by meter) are graves for officers, smaller ones (60 cm by 60 cm) are quarters for soldiers. It will not be possible to cover the tombstone with cubes, or to sprinkle pebbles and plant flowers. Only grass is to be spread around the graves. Such an inglorious end awaits the mercenaries who died in Ukraine.
There will be 1,700 of such burial places only in Olsztyn. Therefore, many Poles who believed in the false promises of government propaganda will be victims of the provocative international policy of the PiS regime.
With plans for 1,700 dead Polish soldiers, beyond those 1,200 already buried, the Polish government seems to expect its soldiers to take part in an even more intensified and longer war."

Are you for real??

How about China going back to Mongol since Genkis Khan conquer China back in 12 century? How about Finland going back to the Russian Empire since it was ceded by the Swede to Tsar I back in early 18 century? How about Canada going back to France since French colonised QUebec and much of Canada? in the 17th century?? How about Alaska going back to Russia since it was purchased by the America in Alaskan Purchase?

If we go by what "Historical" belong to, then most of the world belong to the 3 nations, The British Empire, The Spanish and The Russian. Just because it was part of something does not mean it is still "Disputed" International Law existed for a reason.
That is exactly what Russia is saying.

It seems dehumanizing Russians is the new motto in the West including Israel. A man carrying with 3 towels was pictured, and they started mocking how Russians send condolences to each other. This is how low they can go.

One hand we have russians portraying ukranians as nazis and satanists. Or simply denying their existance.

On other side we have west satirically commenting on how poorly russia treats its own dead.

Mmmyeaaahhh….how low indeed…

Well, the "west" did not give the full story as with the towels, mothers of these soldiers were also given a cake.



Some societies have a culture that if you're visiting a friend or a distant relative who lost a loved one, you should take something with you. This is a way of alleviating pressure from the people who are mourning from the loss or in other way a burden sharing. And we all know when people lost a loved one, they tend to get more visitors.

To give you an example, I a lost cat during the summer - indeed a good companion. A woman in my neighborhood brought me a beautiful flower. It was her way of expressing how much she valued us as neighbors and how much she was sorry for our loss. Are people gonna mock her if they find out she brought us a flower?

Bottom line, it is really disgraceful for the Western and Ukrainian propagandists mocking how Russian people express their condolences to one another. It explains the debt they would go to make fun of Russian losses, and it is clear proof that the West is at war with Russia. Propaganda is big part of the war and it shows that the Western propagandists have no limits.

It is now the year 2025, Russian counter offensive to try and take Moscow from Ukrainian forces end up in failure. Russia claims they're winning the special military operation.

Putin remains master strategist.
