Are those fierce Kremlin special forces invading free and democratic Ukraine?
Nope. Salt of the Earth. You know, morons.
Seeing several tweets about Ukraininans claiming the 45th Spetznaz has arrived, or is arriving, in Slovyansk and Kramatorsk.
All unconfirmed, as of yet.
There’s some sick folks enjoying this. Somebody else brought up LaRouche yesterday and I think that suit fits.
That pic PROVES it. They are obviously crack Russian troops, not just Ukraine citizens of Russian heritage. /s
No, they’re paid provocateurs. Putinistas can sit tight. Putin will invade.
Russians who could go home to Russia.
I’ve come across members of our Borscht Brigade posting from LaRouche in the past. It’s tough to say whether they actually believe in it, or post it because it agrees with the Kremlin line, and they are simply unfamiliar with LaRouche.
Russians who could go home to Russia.”
They are home.
Do you also tell blacks to go back home to Africa?
Map of eastern Ukraine. The second red dot from the top is Kramatorsk.
Thanks! Good to have live updates from both sides.
The tweets are coming fast and furious, almost too fast to keep up.
“Helicopter gunned down in Slovyansk.”
“Rebels in Slovyansk restricting access thru some roadblocks around town.”
“Kramatorsk and Slovyansk are now without internet and cellular..”
I’m thinking, for some reason, of militantly Spanish speaking illegal aliens in the southwest USA. I’m thinking of the “barrio”. I’m thinking of terms like “reconquista”. I’m thinking we need to think a few steps ahead ... we need to play chess. Barry Benghazi is playing tiddly-winks.
I’m not sure why these things suddenly come to mind.
Any wounded or captured should be dragged out of the hospital hauled to Kiev and face some serious interogation and used for the UN presentation on the 17th.
If they’re black separatists, like the black panthers, yes. It’s totally reasonable. Obey the laws of your nation. Otherwise go home to the one you claim.
Bloomberg is reporting this claim by a Ukrainian government official.
