I'd like to remind everyone that seeing such a radical push towards the right and towards facism is a sign of fear. 60% of the US wants abortion rights, many Russians don't want war with Ukraine, I'd like to think all people in the UK want to be able to critique their government. We have the numbers on our side and the next generation is much more progressive and the people in power know this but they're hoping we tear each other apart before we see this. We're going in the right direction, the government just doesn't reflect this and if anything is trying to combat it.

as per usual, I'm publicly answering to all sorts of disgusting individuals on tumblr instead of just blocking them, because I'm dumb like that and have no chill. I can't stand the injustice. And I will not tolerate someone, who probably never even been to Ukraine nor experienced the war, calling me a liar.

Here's a video where you can clearly see russian missile hitting the mall. Although, if you were interested in truth, than you would easily find it yourself.
I live in a small rural area right across the river from Kremenchuk, just a few kilometers away. I almost rented an apartment in that district for my grandmother who was forced to evacuate from Donbas (because russia if fucking razing Donbas to the ground at the moment). Good thing I didn't. Who knows, maybe she could be in that mall. Or my husband, or me. I am so bad of a liar that I posted about the explosions way before it was clear where exactly this happened. The blast was quite powerful, and I honestly thought it could be my last day on earth.
"Literally no evidence that russia target civilians"? I don't know, how about the whole fucking cities and villages being razed to the ground? Dozens of videos of russians opening fire from tanks at apartment buildings or riding over civilian cars with innocent people inside? Tens of thousands of killed Ukrainians?
Someone today made this compilation of shopping centers destroyed by russia. Are these all military targets?

The thing that you call a "military factory" is in reality the Road machines factory "Кредмаш" and it produces asphalt mixing machines.
But I want to talk about something else. When it became normal to invade a sovereign country, completely unprovoked and unjustified, and target its military even? What about it is okay?
Not only every civilian person killed and civilian object destroyed is a crime for which russia is fully responsible, but the killing of every Ukrainian soldier is a crime as well. Because russia has no excuse, no real reason for this war, other than conquest and genocide.
And here's a link to the video of todays missile strike on an apartment building in Mykolaiv. Just to add to "no evidences"
Fuck you so much

UKRAINE HAS FORCED RUSSIA OFF OF SNAKE ISLAND
If that doesn't mean much to you, snake island was Russia's focal point for controlling the black sea. This could very possibly lead to Ukraine managing to get hundreds of millions of tons of grain into the market where it belongs.
Africa is starving without that grain. Food prices rise across the world without it. This is a potentially huge win

I can't be bothered to check the coverage in western media, but in case anyone from the Western Europe and the US is still following me, I just wanted to say that the war in Ukraine is so, so very far from being over. The last couple of days russia's been launching missiles specifically at residential buildings at night, targeting as many civilians as possible because that's when everyone is at home and sleeping. At this point I don't care if russia is turned into a nuclear wasteland, it just has to be stopped.

Tonight russian missile hit a residential building. At least 18 people are dead.
On Monday russian missile hit a shopping mall with at least 1000 citizens inside. Our DSNS are still finding victims. Not even whole bodies. By peaces. People burned alive.
Thats the biggest ones. Generally there were 9 strikes in the past 7 days.
I feel so much hate and anger.

Another Russian missile strikes an apartment complex, this time near Odesa. Casualties reported. Some people are filming themselves right under the ruins, screaming for help. Russian terrorism is gaining even bigger proportions daily now; seeing it and thinking that my family could be the next is an experience I cannot describe and hope to never have again if I live to see the end of this nightmare.

and then explosions nearby
four times
and you just live in a beautiful european capital

Do you know what's the main difference between russia and any other terrorist group like al-qaeda or isis? The latter, unlike russia, take responsibility for their terrorist attacks. Russia just cowardly calls it a "provocation" or a "fake." Oh, and russia has more weapons and still receives more foreign funding than any other terrorist group. And the president of a civilized country like France, for example, wouldn't talk on the phone with the head of ISIS.
There you have it, that's all the differences.

The winner in a prolonged war between two near-peer powers is still based on which side has the strongest industrial base. A country must either have the manufacturing capacity to build massive quantities of ammunition or have other manufacturing industries that can be rapidly converted to ammunition production. Unfortunately, the West no longer seems to have either.
In short, US annual artillery production would at best only last for 10 days to two weeks of combat in Ukraine. If the initial estimate of Russian shells fired is over by 50%, it would only extend the artillery supplied for three weeks. The US is not the only country facing this challenge. In a recent war game involving US, UK and French forces, UK forces exhausted national stockpiles of critical ammunition after eight days. Unfortunately, this is not only the case with artillery. Anti-tank Javelins and air-defence Stingers are in the same boat. The US shipped 7,000 Javelin missiles to Ukraine – roughly one-third of its stockpile – with more shipments to come. Lockheed Martin produces about 2,100 missiles a year, though this number might ramp up to 4,000 in a few years. Ukraine claims to use 500 Javelin missiles every day.
Flawed Assumptions: The first key assumption about future of combat is that precision-guided weapons will reduce overall ammunition consumption by requiring only one round to destroy the target. The war in Ukraine is challenging this assumption. [...] The second crucial assumption is that industry can be turned on and off at will. [...] Unfortunately, this does not work for military purchases. There is only one customer in the US for artillery shells – the military. Once the orders drop off, the manufacturer must close production lines to cut costs to stay in business. [...] Generating new capacity is very challenging, especially as there is so little manufacturing capacity left to draw skilled workers from.
US reports on the defence industrial base have made it clear that ramping up production in war-time may be challenging, if not impossible, due to supply chain issues and a lack of trained personnel due to the degradation of the US manufacturing base.
