Which, of course, is the fault of the murderous dictator of Russia.
100% correct.
Russia stormed out of the UN...Putin passed law for 1M more troops, draft.
Flights out of Russia are fully booked, as people escape to countries where Russians without a visas are welcomed.
Putin will be throwing 1 million more troops at Ukraine.
Ukraine urgently needs more missiles. Russian [and Chinese?] planes must be removed from the sky over Ukraine.
One million rounds a minute electronic machine guns are also needed. Crank up the bullet factories.
Time to get serious and slaughter as many invading Russians as possible, as quickly as possible...or perish.

The main statements of the Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the OSCE:

Partial mobilization is not caused by "military weakness", but by the need to give a proportionate response to the growing threats from the West;

The Russian Federation is ready for any scenarios and warns the West against dangerous interference in Ukraine;

▪ it is necessary to prevent the transformation of the pan-European space into an arena of large-scale military confrontation;

▪ The West in Ukraine has put the whole world on the brink of events with an unpredictable result for all mankind;

The OSCE systematically suppresses the crimes of the Kiev regime, encouraging it to commit new atrocities.

As tensions mount between Washington and Moscow over a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine, U.S. intelligence has found the Kremlin is planning a multi-front offensive as soon as early next year involving up to 175,000 troops, according to U.S. officials and an intelligence document obtained by The Washington Post.

The Kremlin has been moving troops toward the border with Ukraine while demanding Washington guarantee that Ukraine will not join NATO and that the alliance will refrain from certain military activities in and around Ukrainian territory. The crisis has provoked fears of a renewed war on European soil and comes ahead of a planned virtual meeting next week between President Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“The Russian plans call for a military offensive against Ukraine as soon as early 2022 with a scale of forces twice what we saw this past spring during Russia’s snap exercise near Ukraine’s borders,” said an administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive information. “The plans involve extensive movement of 100 battalion tactical groups with an estimated 175,000 personnel, along with armor, artillery and equipment.”

While laying the groundwork for an invasion, the Russian government has also been waging a propaganda campaign, the U.S. administration official said.

“Additionally, in the past month, our information indicates Russian influence proxies and media outlets have started to increase content denigrating Ukraine and NATO, in part to pin the blame for a potential Russian military escalation on Ukraine,” the official said.
“Recent information also indicates that Russian officials proposed adjusting Russia’s information operations against Ukraine to emphasize the narrative that Ukrainian leaders had been installed by the West, harbored a hatred for the ‘Russian world,’ and were acting against the interests of the Ukrainian people.”

In his comments in Latvia, Blinken cautioned the Ukrainians not to give Russia a pretext for military action.
“We’re also urging Ukraine to continue to exercise restraint because, again, the Russian playbook is to claim provocation for something that they were planning to do all along,” he said.

Putin has demanded the United States and its allies provide signed assurances excluding any expansion of NATO to include Ukraine and Georgia and limiting military activity near Russia’s borders, most notably in and around Ukraine.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki rejected out of hand the idea that Washington would provide a guarantee that Ukraine will not enter NATO.
“NATO member countries decide who is a member of NATO, not Russia,” Psaki told reporters during a White House briefing Friday.



Fuck Putin. In a head-to-head contest, we'd kick his ass.
