Lounge of Russian-Ukrainian War

"Aiden Aslin and Shaun Pinner were sentenced by a court which is not internationally recognised, in the so-called Donetsk People's Republic (DPR).
Mr Aslin told his family his captors said there had been no attempt by UK officials to negotiate on his behalf.
(...)
UK government sources indicate that ministers are currently unwilling to negotiate with Russia directly because it may risk fuelling a false Russian narrative that the men are mercenaries."

I suspect the UK government wants them to be executed for propaganda purposes.

The narrative:

1. Putin woke up one morning, and for absolutely no reason whatsoever, ordered the invasion of Ukraine.

2. These brave men risked their lives to fight for the freedom of the Ukrainian people, by repulsing the totally unprovoked Russian invasion.

3. They surrendered to the Russian forces, erroneously believing that they would be treated fairly and in line with the Geneva Convention.

4. They were callously executed by firing squad. Aslin's last word before the bullets fatally pierced his body was "Frrreeeeeeeeeedooooooooom!"

In Response to some of @Max Roscoe 's comments about the weapons here and other arms.

It is bull that they "don't know where the weapons went". That is about all I am able to say on the matter. They know exactly where the weapons given to Ukraine are going and a "free" weapon is not really free anymore than Facebook or Twitter are free.
 
The US exports millions of tons of coal to China every year. Maybe the Russian-Ukrainian War is a nefarious plot by King Coal to cut off Russian
gas to Germany and force Germany to import American coal instead for its coal power plants!
The number of bulk carriers is limited so they would need to choose where to send them

It cost the Biden brain trust of experts and analysts $6.4 million to come up with the phrase "Putin price hike". While Putin has made $64 billion off the back of the said brain trust.

Or that's my guess, which is probably more accurate than anything in the MSM VVV

The government is big on paperwork and bureaucracy.
I have no doubt the NATO forces have a paper trail showing deliveries for every item sent from the west to Ukraine, just as they have well documented delivery notes on all the pallets of hundred dollar bills they shipped to the mideast.

The question is, where are those weapons and money TODAY?

The west is shortsighted in its attempt to fix things with money or weapons. Even if the wars in Afghanistan or Ukraine could have been won by sending weaponry and money over there, the bigger issue than who wins the Afghan war or the Donbass conflict is what effect do those funds and materiel have over the next 30 years? A tank or plane or missile doesn't just stop working 6 months from now when the conflict ends.

A stinger missile given to anti-Soviet troops in the 1970s was used to bring down passenger jets decades later. What effect will billions of dollars, tanks, etc. have when given to the most corrupt country in Europe?

Clown world:

"In one gesture, we see the true attitude of American diplomats (and of the entire Western world) towards our country. Naval Attache of the US Embassy in Moscow, Captain First Rank Dale Samuel, riding a bicycle around the city, deliberately stopped at a post on which the letter Z was pasted and took a photo of his middle finger.
In fact, D. Samuel should not interact with the military departments of Russia, and defiantly not violate Russian law. And here we see actions that directly fall under Art. 280.3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
Interestingly, Samuel regularly drives around the city in a car with diplomatic plates and shows everyone his protruding middle finger. The question arises: does he have problems with his finger, or with his head?
By the way, recently, many representatives of the West are doing everything so that we treat them as mentally ill and do not take them seriously. Is this some kind of conscious strategy?
But the most important question for us is how our authorities will react to Samuel's trick ..."


The pettiness is so pathetic.
