Putin announces partial mobilisation and threatens nuclear retaliation in escalation of Ukraine war
Russian president threatens west with nuclear retaliation, saying ‘we will use all the means at our disposal’

Vladimir Putin has announced a partial mobilisation in Russia in a significant escalation that places the country’s people and economy on a wartime footing.

The president also threatened nuclear retaliation, saying that Russia had “lots of weapons to reply” to what he called western threats on Russian territory and added that he was not bluffing.

In a highly anticipated televised address, Putin said the “partial mobilisation” was a direct response to the dangers posed by the west, which “wants to destroy our country”, and claimed the west had tried to “turn Ukraine’s people into cannon fodder”.

It is.
In the aviation news today, Turkish airlines are going to be raking it in with the sudden upswell in bookings by brave Russian patriots electing to go on holiday…
Turkey. That same country where Russian airlines still fly in.
Turkey. Manufacturer of a particularly successful drone.

Funny world…

Tactical nukes are not really the big boogeyman that they are made out to be, in terms of the perceived power of wiping out whole battalions.

Ukraine purposely disperse their units because of that risk of nukes, and other ordinance. If TN were used they’d have very little impact on the war but a huge impact on the population, infrastructure and land.

Putin won’t use them and if he does it’ll be his death warrant, both politically and personally.

Tactical nukes are nukes, aka the big boogeyman. If Russia uses them, there will be a nuclear response forthcoming.

It’s the fear of mutual assured destruction that keeps everyone from using them in the first place.

Except for madmen who don’t care about the end of everything.

The Russian people it seems are waking up and are against Putin's mobilization of reservists an they will be the ones that put this war to bed

One-way flights out of Russia were rocketing in price and selling out fast on Wednesday after Putin ordered the immediate call-up of 300,000 reservists.

About 4 weeks to go to the anniversary of the second Russian revolution. This lunatic was intent on achieving something great to celebrate a great Russian anniversary this year. He may accidentally achieve it, after all.
