There is no proof or logic in this.

Why would they kill a very popular opposition leader in their own custody and turn him into a martyr if they just could cut his tongue and hold him in isolation for 100 years till he dies a natural death?

There was no chance that Navalny could escape from prison or saved by a foreign intervention.

Russia killing Navalny is like Turkey killing Öcalan or Demirtaş. Both impossible.

The aid package is the first part of 7 Billion Euros worth of military aid that Germany has promised to Ukraine in 2024 and the most significant aid package announced thus far in 2024.

From General Syrskyi...

"Based on the operational environment that has occurred around Avdiivka, in order to avoid the environment and save the lives and health of soldiers, the decision was made to withdraw our units from the city and move to defense on more favorable borders..."

We were talking about whether Syrksyi would force the Ukrainians to fight in Avdiivka until the KIA ratio deeply advantaged Russia...

We got our answer... The 3rd Assault Brigade was deployed to help the 53rd, 47th and 110th retreat from encirclement, to more defensible positions.

I maintain the arguement that Bahkmut was unique in that the troops there were "left to fight" until very late in the process because Syrskyi was politically directed to ensure that Bahkmut was Wagner's final campaign.

Meanwhile in Germany too:

- industry slowing down
- rising energy costs
- low fertility rate
- increase of the LGBT community
- increase of 'genderchange' surgeries on kids
- increased import of Africans
- increase of immigrant crime
- increase of violence against German teens at street, very trending on social media

But no, just give all the attention to dictator Zelensky.

Killing the Opposition is the norm in Russia. The same way Putin killed Anna Politkovskaya, Boris Nemtsov and Prigozhin he killed Navalny too. Navalny's fate was sealed the minute he boarded the plane back to Russia and he knew it.

He probably thought that by becoming a "martyr" it will help his cause and Russians will rise against the Regime in the Kremlin etc but He was never popular amongst the population. I doubt that even 10% of Russians will even feel any anger or sadness about his death. And from these 10% not even 1% will be willing to protest and rise against Putin and risk ending up in a GULAG somewhere near the Arctic circle. In a few days Navalny would be forgotten and everything will continue in the same way.

Putin is holding all the power in Russia and doesn't even care about how the world will react so He does what he wants to.

It's like The Purge - but only Putin gets to kill who ever he likes.
Wonder how Putin fanboys will spin this. Navalny slipped and was accidently shot in the head and then fell out the window?

Not only Scholz. It was Merkel who started the downward path with her abandonment of nuclear power and her open invitation for Syrian refugees.

Merkel was Putin’s puppet and her goal was to make Germany dependent on Russian gas. She was even worse than Sholtz.

It’s good that they finally retreated. They clearly overstayed in Avdiivka and incurred avoidable losses, but at least they didn’t insist in the mistake for too long.

Hopefully they will learn from their mistakes and won’t do this again in the future. The life and morale of their troops shold be the first priority, because it is much more important than some small points on the map.

Ukraine is in NATO, but Moscow is not": NewYorker named options for real victory at the front

IMG_20240217_142916.jpg


Analysts explained what kind of victory should be expected at the front
Experts and analysts note that one should not hope that Russia can be easily defeated.


The text discusses the potential consequences of a Russian victory in Ukraine and the implications for the world. It raises questions about Putin's next steps in the event of a victory and the impact on Ukraine and global stability. Some analysts argue that Russia may not stop at Ukraine and could pursue further aggressive actions, potentially leading to increased military presence in Europe. However, the outcome of the war in Ukraine remains uncertain, with the country facing a challenging moment amid a harsh winter and wavering Western support. The text concludes by suggesting that if the war continues, further twists and turns can be expected.

Russia using a lot of Turks as footsoldiers,

The flag of the Autonomous Republic of Tuva was hung in Avdiivka

They would be better off if they started a war for independence of their republic instead of helping Russia destroy Ukraine. Now it is the best time for Russian republics to seek independence, because the Moscovites would not be able to fight on multiple fronts. This is why they send their ethnic minorities as foot soldiers, because they want to get rid of the young men from those minorities in order to avoid future rebellions. Russia puts zero value on the lives of its minorities. Killing them in Ukraine is seen as a double win for Russia. Ethnic minorities in Russia should understand that Ukraine is their ally, not their enemy.

West not prepared to wage ‘endless war’ against Russia – Hungary

Budapest will continue to refrain from supplying weapons to Kiev, Defense Minister Kristof Szalay-Bobrovniczky has said.

According to Szalay-Bobrovniczky, “we, the West, are waging a war against Russia in which the Ukrainians are fighting with Western money, Western weapons, and Western ammunition.”

He stressed, however, that in terms of weapon systems, ammunition, and other supplies, the West is not prepared strategically to shoulder a “seemingly endless war.”

So, Syrian refugees are responsible for Germany's economic & industrial slowdown? Hmm.....sounds about right.

It's more a combination of factors.

- millions of refugees
- rising energy costs
- climate regulations
- Russian sanctions

USA, Germany, Japan and China.

4 out of the top 5 world economies are in real danger at this moment.

The German industry's production rate felt heavily. Same problem in the US, but the they also have a problem with their state bonds that nobody wants to buy anymore, so the FED must print extra money again with a 34 trillion state debt. American banks are in big trouble and the National Bank Fond set up by the government is almost empty.

China cant escape the big Evergrande fiasco and they have a huge declining property problem and Japan is in a real recession now.

Turkish citizens should'nt invest in the US dollar if they have a long term vision. Exciting times are coming.

Germany 🇩🇪 is sending Ukraine 7 Billion Euros worth of military aid this year. The biggest economy in Europe can easily support that. They announced 100 Billion Euros of new military investments for themselves, in 2022-2023.

Germany is doing a nice job of balancing military priorities for themselves and military priorities for Ukraine. Keep in mind also that in the last couple years German industry, has received more than 120 billion Euros worth of orders for new military equipment for Western Allies.

Alexander Litvenko got killed in the most awful way.

But world leaders still shook Putins hand. Are now crying crocodile tears over Navalny.

By the way it was the Russians who blew up the Polish plane which killed not only their president but higher echelons in 2010.

Guess who was covering up for the Russians it was the EU man called Donald Tusk.
