There is imitation of some negotiation with Russians, in this way Ukraine buying time. Firsts days of war showed our army is like Russian army was in 1994 when they entered first Chechen war. They were losing tanks, selling each other arms and then all together drinking this money away... at first war looked like a joke but then it start getting very real.
Ukraine entering war and can't match Russian with cruelty. For instance there was fight on the beach and Ukrainians stopped shooting to let some beach goers pass by. Today they announced that "anti-terrorist" operations in the east would be put on hold over Easter. Meanwhile mobilization is on the way, they dig 1000 kms ditch along the border with Russia to stop tanks. Bomb shelters prepared in big cities. We have lot of bomb shelters left from time of Cold War which now in terrible condition. What interesting is that in regions that border Russia newly appointed governors our billionaires. They pay ditch digging and war related projects. Regional elite forces on their budget, they also pay big money to people who will capture Russian terrorists and their arms. $10.000 for head+couple of thousand more for their machine gun.
It was smart move to let billionaire we call them oligarchs finance Ukraine defence programme. In this way they protect their capital. Voltaire said "The Aim Of All War Is Robbery" this is very true and rich people understand Russians not coming to protect Russian language... they coming to rob rich people out of their wealth and factories.
Another important news is that Ukraine cut off water to Crimea. How long can they live without water before they will move inland to take Kherson water channel by force? If no water in next couple of weeks then farming season in Crimea will be wasted. From very beginning it was clear that Crimea is suitcase without holder, no way to carry it... holder is in Kherson. They should occupy both or none.
So........apparently I’m not the only one following Filatova. I honestly don’t understand how she can continue to post; I’d have thought the links to the internet from Kiev would have been severed long ago.
