The reality is that only about 1,000 people run Russia. 999 of those people can see the truth, but it is not conducive to good health, to point this out to the odd man out.
Historically, after a Russia has been given a bloody nose, such as the Ukraine has gifted, the Russian leader has disappeared and been replaced. Putin is aware of that and it is the reason he is prepared to unleash his nuclear arsenal.
China will be closely watching the West's response, itching to do the same in Taiwan.
Rest assure, there is far more Western response, than we are privy to.

A few minutes ago, I saw a news report that said that Putin claims that after one month of fighting, Russia has achieved all its goals in Ukraine. I hope that means he will now withdraw all his troops and military equipment.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Yes. This matches the Kremlin statement and they are trying to change the narrative to get themselves out of trouble with a totally concocted story about their "limited" aims. It looks like the face-saving operation is getting underway. Expect a lot of outrageous claims coming from Russia in the next few days.

The thirty-first day of Ukraine's heroic war against fascist russia. Yesterday I succumbed to emotion after hearing the story of what is happening in the city of Mariupol, which the russian fascists continue to destroy. Imagine the horrifying picture of a multi-storey building being destroyed by a bomb, with women and children hiding in the basement. And rescuers are physically unable to help people because of the constant shelling, so people are buried alive! If we had guns, these casualties would have been avoided. No one can now say how many civilians died, but it is a terrible figure, as official statistics show that 90% of Mariupol, a city of 300,000 inhabitants, was destroyed. That's why I couldn't help it when I heard what the coward Jens Stoltenberg wanted to do! I would have looked at him if his children were sitting in the basement of a collapsed multi-storey building running out of oxygen. But we will still win in spite of cowardice and betrayal!
Glory to Ukraine!
And this is a new statistic of russian fascist losses!

Any hunter will tell you that a wounded bear is much scarier and meaner, and the right thing to do is to kill the beast, which in agony will kill everyone in its path. Now the Russian army is a wounded bear that must be destroyed quickly. Firstly, every day of delay is thousands of Ukrainian civilians killed, and secondly, the ambiguous situation with China, which can help the fascists with weapons, this cannot be ruled out.

Yesterday the city of Lviv in Western Ukraine was subjected to the largest missile attack in the 32 days of Ukraine's war against fascist russia! The city of Lvov is 50 kilometers from the Polish border, where at that time the President of the United States of America, Joseph Biden, was on an official visit! Do you think this is an accident? I'm sure it's a direct threat to the U.S. president! I hope that Biden will make the right conclusions and the US will keep the promise to transfer MIG-29 planes from Poland that the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke about before and then after the meeting in the Pentagon he changed his promise. I hope that after the direct threats of fascist Russia to the US, both the president and the Pentagon will finally help Ukraine with more powerful weapons, including anti-missile systems, which will enable the Ukrainian army to go on a counter-offensive!
Glory to Ukraine!
And that's more losses for the fascist army of russia!

The thirty-third day of Ukraine's war against fascist Russia. Look at this man, Peter Maurer, president of the International Committee of the Red Cross, an organization that is supposed to help war victims. This traitor to democracy and the civilized world went to Moscow to organize camps for Ukrainian refugees in Russia. Just yesterday, the Russian occupants forcibly removed twenty thousand civilians from Mariupol, more than three thousand of them children. People had no choice but to die of starvation or to be put in camps by the Russian fascists!
Instead of organizing corridors to remove civilians from active war zones, Peter Maurer went to Lavrov, one of the main mouthpieces of Russian fascism. Shame on Peter Maurer, shame on the Red Cross!
Our heroic army continues to destroy the fascist army of Russians, one can see that the dynamics are not the same as in previous days. The Russian fascists continue their tactics of bombing and rocket attacks on civilians, from which we are still not provided with air defenses.
Glory to Ukraine!

Hello
Dima
Unfortunately many so-called charitable organisations appear to be serving only themselves. Here in Australia, many people donated money to help victims of wide-spread fires that destroyed their homes but the charities have decided to hold a large proportion of the money people donated for "future needs." No doubt much of it will be expended on administration of their own organisation.

The Red Cross/Red Crescent does not and can not take sides. It can not do anything to support a conflict. It is only in very special circumstances that they can even accept armed escorts or protection from either side.

Their original purpose was solely to ensure wounded and captured on a battlefield were humanely treated. This has now extended to the civilian population involved in conflict. And in later years to natural disasters.

You described yourself how the Russians are forcing people into camps. What chance would Red Cross have of visiting and helping those camps if they got into the business of criticising Putin? It is in everyone's interest to have Red Cross (and other NGO's such as Doctors Without Borders - MSF) remain totally neutral. It helps keep the warring parties honest if they think somebody is watching how they treat wounded, prisoners and refugees. All sides like Red Cross involvement to show how good they are at humanitarian treatment.

I think you should look on the Red Cross visit to Moscow as a good thing because they have gained access to the camps to report any bad things going on. It is nothing to do with them whether people should be in the camps in the first place.
