1170 Dead and Counting

If this is the “best to not kill civilians” that the Russian army is doing, then they are grossly incompetent. Over 1170 civilians dead in Mariupol, a maternity ward bombed to rubble. People are being put in mass graves because mortuaries are full. Those humanitarian corridors that were agreed? Don’t work, Russians keep shelling them with mortars.

Please note that I am not linking to anglophone media, nor is this particular medium controlled by Murdoch at all.

Further, what I did not know they only allow people to flee to Russia. Yeah, that’s right, a violent occupier allows the occupied people to escape only to the occupier’s territory.

I feel sick.

    It isn’t “best to not kill civilians”, once Ukraine made it clear they were not going to roll over for Russia that went out the window. Russia is using saturation artillery to reduce Ukrainian positions to rubble, even if they are in cities. These statements are window dressing and propaganda. At this point it’s probably mostly in the hopes of reducing the economic sanctions against Russia after the war.

    I too wish horrible fates on the Murdoch rat bastards.

    I hope their media empire finally gets stomped on for its efforts to make the world fascist and violent.

    A video from 1420, a Russian School that teaches about democracy.

    They have been posting daily videos of what students and random average people in the street think of the invasion, though of course they aren’t allowed to use that term. Very few express anything but dismay.

    This was posted six days ago.

    If the link doesn’t work, try searching YouTube for 1420.

    Wounding, maiming, and killing civilians, particularly children and pregnant mother, is definitely NOT the way to ‘win hearts and minds’. It will likely be decades before a Russian can turn his back on Ukrainians without fear of what might happen. Those folks remember major insults and vengeance is a popular dish, best served cold I understand.
