I think we can safely substitute ‘another humiliation’ with ‘they’ve lost’ at this time. Fighting Ukraine in the Autumn/Winter months will be suicide for the Russians.
Crimea is definitely going to absolutely fuck them. Once that goes, their whole definition for starting the war is fucked.
Poor bastards don’t even have duck tape
Cluster / nail bomb = war crime?
I think Ukraine are using the same in their bomblets they drop from drones, so i’m not sure on the legality. Tungsten darts will apparently put a hole in an engine block and, with a few hundred flying in every direction …nasty stuff.
That’s not real fighting
That’s what Ukraine/Russia does. They fight dirty and don’t respect innocent people.
I work with a Russian who protested against Putin and eventually fled Russia due to fearing for his safety, only to go to Ukraine(for work when he lived in Czech years later), get pulled out of his car, thrown to the ground, an AK put to the back of his head, and told if he ever came back, they will shoot and bury him by the side of the road. After that experience, he felt Russia wasn’t so bad after all.
Not to mention the constant racism he got while living in Czech. He lives in Canada now and has zero issues.
Yeah that’s my understanding too, and I’ve got friends on both sides here. There’s a seeming necessity to be “tough” like that. Czech friends too; pretty similar situation there. You ever been to Czech Republic?
When I was in Prague once on the underground, they held a gun up to me when checking to see if me, my mum, and uncle had a ticket (we didn’t know where to get one).
We have an office there but haven’t been. Made some good friends from that office though.
