Why would you trust Biden's admin after afghanistan withdraw, and look at how Russian sanctions backfired? Ukraine needs a lot more than weapons to fight the Russians. Ukraine economy is in ruins and needs funds to upkeep cities, gov't admin + funding army personnel's, logistics and weapons. Is America/G7 really prepare to print 60 billion usd to fund Ukraine when inflation already at 8.6% and fed hiking rates to combat inflation. Seems contradictory policies to me.

Just a bit of reminder for American pumpers, yo all has been all wrong on this war, and Boris even resigned. Fantasy of America foreign policy review on Russia and China alliance couldn't be more wrong. EU can't live without Russian resources and US can't live without Chinese goods, not the reverse. Russia - China Alliance will define the new multipolar world and effectively made both parties stronger on the back of global supply chain. Biden's Ukraine war will effectively end the US global hedgemony, and perhaps in history known as "sleeopy Joe" blows up America. A deep global recession now is unfortunately unavoidable and let see if Euro/Yen can survive. All signs of empire downfall start with its periphery burns.

Moscow city councillor Alexei Gorinov, holds a placard reading "Do you still need this war?" as he stands inside a defendants' cage during a court hearing in Moscow, Russia July 8, 2022


A Moscow district councillor was jailed for seven years on Friday for criticising Russia's invasion of Ukraine, in what a Kremlin-critical lawyer said was the first case of anyone going to prison under a new law on "fake information".

Alexei Gorinov, a member of the Krasnoselsky district council, told a council meeting on March 15, where a children's drawing contest was discussed, that Russia was waging a war of aggression against Ukraine.

"What kind of children's drawing contest can we talk about for Children's Day ... when we have children dying every day?" he says in a recording of the meeting posted on YouTube.

He was arrested under Article 207.3 of the criminal code, passed shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine on Feb. 24 to outlaw "deliberate dissemination of fake information about Russia's army", defined as information deviating from official reports

Gorinov's supporters posted a picture on their Telegram channel of the councillor, handcuffed in a glass defendant's cage, holding up a placard reading: "Do you still need this war?" during the proceedings.

"They took away my spring, they took away my summer, and now they've taken away seven more years of my life," they quoted him as saying at Friday's sentencing.

Leonid Volkov, chief of staff for jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny, said the sentence - confirmed on the court's own Telegram account - was meant to make an example of people using the word "war" to refer to Russia's actions in Ukraine.


Since beginning what it calls a "special military operation", Russia has cracked down on media and individuals referring to its actions as a "war" or "invasion".

Many people have been handed administrative fines for protesting against the war, but lawyer Pavel Chikov said on Telegram that only two others had been convicted of criminal offences under Article 207.3, and that one had been fined and the other given a suspended jail sentence.

Russia says it had to use force to defend persecuted Russian-speakers and defuse a military threat from Ukraine.

Kyiv and its Western allies dismiss such justifications as baseless pretexts for a war of conquest that has cost thousands of lives, razed towns and cities and displaced a third of Ukraine's population.

Targeting the kerch bridge with new 300km himars can make Russia declare general mobilisation. That would put the situation to an almost irreversible status and make situation very difficult for Ukraine. Other targets like ammo depots airbases transportation are more strategic but wont result in mobilisation. Crimea and kerch bridge seem to have a symbolic meaning as Russia recognises the place as their own land.

Then, it's moreover a priority target. A Doolitle raid is needed more for terror effect, than for actual damage.

So far, the war been without any personal cost to Russian upper classes, who see no impact on their daily lives, and this there were no elite revolt so far.

Them having a stake in russian military making out alive from Ukraine will certainly rile up feathers in Kremlin. So far, he only been sending volunteers from poor rural areas, and disposable Mongol/Chechen units.

If it will be the elite kids from Moscow dying, I bet something is ought to happen. If it was China's war, there would be absolutely no chance of kids of rich CPC members serving as political commissars being sent to the meatgrinder.

At present, China has 90million Communists, 80million members of the Communist Youth League and 250million young pioneers. The number of Communist members at all levels in China accounts for 30% of China's total population. Almost every family has members related to CCP.

If the army does not recruit CCP's children, the army cannot recruit any recruits.

Unlike Russia, Chinese CCP members has no privileges, and even CCP members must make certain sacrifices. When the flood came, these CCP members first jumped to the dam gap and blocked the flood with their bodies. Covid is here. They need to work for free to help the medical staff. Whenever the government needs volunteers, they will use CCP party orders to recruit CCP members.

Everyone is tired of this war and it doesn't get the same coverage anymore. It is a back cover story now. Initially there was a lot of talk and support for Ukraine. That talk and support is now dwindling among the ordinary people. As economic hardships are affecting the world Ukraine is left to its own devices.

It`s just the beginning. This war could take 5-10 years.

Ukraine is already ruined, and the country is bankrupt. Two factors will end this war, externally Eu and US funding 60 billion USD a year to keep Zelensky's gov't in power this year, and the sanctions are becoming very unpopular in Europe and US, no way for funding beyond this year. Internally, Zelensky's policy of drafting all men and including even Women in the Army is becoming very unpopular, either an uprising or coup by the Army will end this madness soon as people of Ukraine realizes they are cannon fodders.

Sooner or later, Biden's admin will realize China is winning the Ukraine war, buying cheap Russia energy and resources + financing US debt at higher interest rates.

I feel very good, only pain can make people reflect.
Before, only Iraqis, Afghans and Syrians were in pain. Now the whole world is in pain.
