Great article about the coming fall of Russia. Several scenarios for Russia’s future are discussed. The North Korea version, the Somalia variant, Mordor or, most positive but unlikely, the German Zero Hour that will be a new beginning.

Russian attacks have left millions of Ukrainians without electricity, water, and heat. One way to help: fund anti-drone defense. This is what President Zelens’kyi’s United24 campaign asked me to do, and now I am asking you. Please donate.

NEW UPDATE: #Russia tends to lie about it casualty numbers. Numbers are easy to manipulate, but real dead bodies are becoming a bigger problem. So,  uses mobile crematoria to get rid of its dead soldiers, in order to cover it up. Recently used in #Tokmak. #Ukraine️

Explosions reported overnight near Sevastopol, Bakhchysarai in Ukraine’s Russian-occupied Crimea, and in Belgorod, Russia. Lines of cars waiting to cross Crimean bridge, though that is probably related to ferry services being suspended due to bad weather.
