CHechen CO of Russian special forces at the airport was killed in the fighting there.
Hope that is true …

Can Ukraine Really Use Donated Fighter Jets? That Depends
That may be seen as direct NATO action, etc. ? Even if the NATO pilots are not flying them. And Ukrainian markings painted over the NATO nation ones. However, NATO has given Ukraine AT, AA, etc. weapons. So ?

No, I don't think so. Xi won't back a lame duck; he can see the way the wind is blowing and will abandon Putin. He's already distancing himself.

China wants money. And for that, stability.

Whatever the final result in Ukraine, this has been a bad weak for despots as the West finally seems to be finding its backbone.

Yes, I heard that … However, that does not look like it is going to happen with their poor performance, high losses, etc. IMO Putin and the Russian Army has shot it bolt.

Nah, Xi is laughing all the way to the top. With all the meaningless sanctions that don't bite Putin, yet punish to the average Russian, the West is doing what US presidents tried to prevent for the last 50 years -- push Russia into a Sino-Russian alliance. When the West closes off access to the average Russian, while still buying Putin's oil & gas, then they will be left buying not Apple, but Huawei. China will add Russia as a captive market to its "Belt & Road" countries -- and we'll all be the worse off for it.

Reports say it is on fire.

Legion 404 Mar 2022 10:11 a.m. PST

The Ukrainian crew at the nuke power plant are being held at gun point by Chechen Mercs. So they have to do what they say of else. We know the Chechens are used as "shock troops" as they are followers of islam and are not afraid to die, etc.. If reports are correct.

The Russian fight with the Chechens in a previous conflict/war a very bloody action. With the Chechen predilection to fight to the death, etc., etc. They are known to be very tough, hard, fighters. And now Putin uses them as to do his dirty work, etc. They are very motivated and effective … not like we saw with many Russian conscripts, it appears.

35thOVI Supporting Member of TMP04 Mar 2022 12:24 p.m. PST

Plus this is chance to kill infidels. I am sure that also motivates them.

Legion 404 Mar 2022 5:54 p.m. PST

Yes I'm sure that is part of their motivation as always.

35thOVI Supporting Member of TMP05 Mar 2022 5:04 a.m. PST

Someone in one of a thousand TMP threads on ukraine posted a video of this loser. This identifies who he is.. I hope someone in the future has to ask: "Wonder why he don't write home no more", then a camera pans to a white skeleton lying next to a burned out Russian tank.

Good riddance to bad rubbish.
