    Worse atrocities than those discovered in Bucha are likely to be uncovered in other areas seized from Russian invaders, president Volodymyr Zelenskiy has warned, ahead of his appearance at the UN security council on Tuesday.
    As he built support for an open investigation into the killings in Bucha, Zelenskiy said: “And this is only one town. One of many Ukrainian communities which the Russian forces managed to capture. Now, there is information that in Borodyanka and some other liberated Ukrainian towns, the number of casualties of the occupiers may be even much higher.” The town of Borodyanka lies 25km (16 miles) west of Bucha.
    The president accused Russia of trying to “distort the facts” about the alleged atrocities and claimed it was “already launching a false campaign to conceal their guilt in the mass killings of civilians in Mariupol”.
    “They will do dozens of stage interviews, re-edited recordings, and will kill people specifically to make it look like they were killed by someone else,” he said. “Probably, now the occupiers will try to hide the traces of their crimes. They did not do this in Bucha when they retreated. But in another area it is possible.”

  2. I spotted this tweet just before Twitter deleted it.  No reason given except that Twitter has deleted many Anonymous tweets including banning at least two accounts.  Russian propaganda is not deleted all the time, just saying.  Maybe someone does have the fire causing the smoke in the greedy old perverts lives.

    Right-wing support for Putin is disturbing. We wonder what deal is made there… You don’t become Putin’s puppet that easy. As always, it would be such a shame is someone published those documents. Don’t ya think? Just imagine…

    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky addressed the mothers of Russian soldiers in an emotional Sunday night speech — saying he wants them to see the carnage their sons have caused after hundreds of executed civilians were discovered in a mass grave in a Kyiv suburb. “I want every mother of every Russian soldier to see the bodies of the killed people in Bucha, in Irpin, in Hostomel. What did they do? Why were they killed?” Zelensky asked in his nightly address on Sunday. “Russian mothers! Even if you raised looters, how did they also become butchers?” Zelensky asked in his Sunday night address.

  4. Barry McCaffrey advocates stepping up the support of Ukraine by NATO beefing up Eastern Europe and Scandinavia and getting anti ship missiles and M1 tanks to the Ukes quickly so they can defend Odessa and attack Russian forces he says are probably regrouping and resupplying. He says Russian forces are at their most vulnerable now. US, NATO, are you listening?

  5. i had nightmares about being executed with my hands tied behind my back all night.  What’s the balance between staying informed and destroying one’s psyche?  🤔 

  6. mccaffrey’s right about providing the missiles et al necessary to counter both russia’s ability to restock its troops and their bombardment of the coastal towns.  can’t understand why that wasn’t done from the start and why nato has allowed the black sea to be used in such a way by russia. 

  7. It’d be nice if the media could ignore the dumbass republicans about KBJ and just concentrate on the new lady justice with no room for republican bullshit.

    She has the votes, she’ll be the next justice, republicans are just totally irrelevant. and stupid.

  8. Bink: “had nightmares about being executed with my hands tied behind my back all night.  What’s the balance between staying informed and destroying one’s psyche?”

    Good question, I have no answer

  9. patd, I chalk up the delay in providing arms to Ukraine, especially for the coastal defense, as a lack of appreciation of Russian history.  Mrs. P took Russian history in college and her prof said that the key to Russian European ambition is the Black Sea.  It’s the western water that doesn’t freeze over.
