I've seen that footage already hence my comment that the jet pilot took a massive risk and nearly downed himself and millions of rubles of kit and training.
The intelligence those drones collect must be seriously useful. Hope they had enough time to wipe the software in case Russia recovers it first.
So much for the Russian claim that it brought itself down with a sharp manoeuvre or the fish that jumped out of the water. :lol:

Unless I've been unlucky, we've all known the pathological liar that not only persistently lies, but when you catch them out and you think the game's up they just carry on lying as though the past never happened and still expect you to believe them. :lol:
That should be called "fish and chips", cause, you know... it stuffed with chips)!

But seriously, it the same pissed off fish that got disturbed by six amatures (5 men, 1 woman medic, and Aquaman) of unknown nationality who rented a small yacht.

That's quite cryptic. Well, very cryptic TBH. Are you related to Eric Cantona by any chance. Only joking, I just don't understand the reference.

Just seen the BBC
"Live Arrest warrant issued for Putin over war crime allegations".

It's all they have is blackmail with nuclear weapons because Russia's armed forces are absolutely pathetic. They might be big in numbers but there training, morale, equipment, leadership etc is about as 2nd rate as it gets.

I really don't know if Putin is stupid enough to launch a tactical nuclear weapon but his own ego and the failure on invading the Ukraine coupled with Russian's starting to question him may force his hand to press the button.

It's not just Putin that's had a warrant issued. So's children's minister Maria Lvova-Belova. :shock:

Putin's in Mariupol. He must have got there by air. What's happened to the Star Trek II missiles?

Surprise, unplanned visit by helicopter. I imagine other side was informed as killing Putin would probably start WW3 by hardliners in the Kremlin.

Also, I believe there is a shortage of Star Streak missiles as company in Northern Ireland can’t keep up due to component issues.

Vlad wanders around in the dark to survey the fragments of civilisation left after his brutality (or hurriedly constructed to windowdress the stupidity of destroying to achieve your aims).
Wasn't there another Vlad that preferred the dark hours?

That's quite the stunt.

Are you sure it's not Putin's stunt double?

He handles all the dangerous stuff for Vlad, like handshakes and flying to warzones etc.

I imagine other side was informed not to bother killing Putin's double as all that would probably start is another lookalike competition in Kremlin.

Or maybe it's somehow true, who knows, maybe Vlad feels he'll be safer near the frontlines than back in Kremlin.

Biden's not directly involved in the war but Putin is. It would have been worth a go.
