Today, we had a largish raid group of 11+ to take on an #OriginFormePalkia in - it turned out to be a good raid.

Just for fun, my strongest ditto was backing up my mega salamence who was in #1 position. Turns out that the ditto's shapeshift did not cancel out my salamance's mega form which was a happy surprise 😁

I won the Raid Buddy award but the ditto doesn't show up alas 😞 #PokemonGo #PokemonGoTour2024

Kyiv is bracing for a Kremlin-sponsored narrative that will seek to exploit doubts about the President Volodymyr standing in an effort to destabilize public trust, particularly among Ukrainian frontline troops.

Although he is backed by a large majority of Ukrainian citizens, polls show his standing softening. Last month’s dismissal of his popular top general, Valeriy , and setbacks on the frontline have prompted a slow erosion of trust.

#ChuckSchumer is heading to #Ukraine on Friday to try to reassure president Volodymyr #Zelenskiy that the #USCongress will deliver another round of aid, AP reports.

Schumer’s trip comes at a perilous time for Ukraine. A package that would provide $60bn to the war-torn country is stalled in the U.S. House.

Something I'd missed which, while I understand the reasoning for it, seems to me unwise and unhelpful: #zelenskiy talking about the ethnic #Ukrainian populations who live furth of Ukraine.

I'm not persuaded that nation states are a good idea, but they're what we've got. We need to stop basing states on ethnicity and instead base them on community: contiguous territories where a significant majority in every locality choose to be citizens of that state. >>>

’s popular army chief Valery was called to a meeting at the president’s office on Monday and told he was being fired, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN, following weeks of growing speculation over tensions between Volodymyr and his top commander.

A formal announcement has not been made, however, a presidential decree is expected by the end of the week.

Volodymyr has fired his top army commander, Valerii , in ’s biggest military shake-up since ’s full-scale invasion began nearly two years ago.

The decision to push ahead with the dismissal is seen as a risky move for Zelenskiy, given Zaluzhnyi’s high approval ratings among Ukrainians

has replaced Valerii , a popular commander whose relations with had become strained in recent months. Critics have suggested Zelenskiy may have been partly motivated by concerns over Zaluzhnyi’s high approval ratings in Ukrainian society and his potential to one day become a political challenger.

Ukraine: Zelensky may soon oust military chief Zaluzhny - @asiatimes

There is little doubt that Russia will be successful. While the Ukrainian army may be able to delay the Russians, it lacks any ability to stop them cold. If Ukraine tries to bring in extra forces to bolster its chances, it will open itself up to Russian threats elsewhere along the line of contact.

Avdeevka, no matter its importance, is just an excuse for Zelensky. He needs loyal people around him as his situation becomes more precarious. His European and American allies, who still say they want to give him what he wants in arms and financial aid, understand that Ukraine can’t stand up to Russian military pressure.

Putting aside the credibility, or lack thereof, of any imminent Russian threat to Europe, the US is changing its policy and is recognizing that it cannot win a conventional war against Russia. (Which also means that it can’t win a conventional war against China, maybe not even Iran or the minuscule Houthis.)


Huge geopolitical implications if true.

This conflict is showing that western military power is nothing more than a business enterprise. Its military industrial complex the largest and most corrupt institutional network in the world.
