Just an armchair chieftain trying to make sense of world politics and conflicts. 100% pro-Ukraine, 100% pro-democracy.

Born and raised in Sweden. Exported to Canada. Lived about half my life in Canada. I love both countries.

The profile picture is a replica of a Viking helmet. And no, the Vikings didn't have horns on their helmets. That was introduced in Wagner's opera The Ring of the Nibelung.

The header picture is of the Viking castle in Trelleborg (also called Trelleborgen).

The Russians after the first assessment: "No problem. Let's go back and have some more vodka."
After the second hit: "Cyka Blyat! Can't we waste ourselves in peace?"

24-year-old who signed a contract to get out of prison regrets his decision.

I transcribed the subtext in the video (yes, the AI translator they used screwed up in a few places, but it's better than nothing). I couldn't fit it all into the alt description, so I put the rest below.

Russian Soldier (RS): It's a very stron area. I didn't even understand where I was going. From your side, the mortars work well. Te mortars, the polkas, the tanks manage to kill the living force. The defense is good for this direction. We have a lot of losses either because of the lack of discipline, or because they don't know what to do. They didn't expect it themselves. I am Avchenkov Valery Igorevich. I was born in 2000. Republic of Komi, Sosnogorsk, Lenin Street, 3519. Interrogator (I): What's your name? RS: Pravy. I: Do you have a tattoo? RS: Yes, a letter V. Contractor. 9th regiment, 2nd V-route. 3rd battalion. I signed it from prison. I: Does the information reach the area? RS: Yes. They say that they run a lot and shoot from behind. They are mowing. We were driven. We were not the first. The regiment went first. I: Which regiment? RS: 9th, from Strelkov. 2nd V-route. I: How many people were there? RS: About 200-250. We left the landing near the dust village. I: When? RS: It was on the 11th in the morning. I don't know if there were people there, but I didn't see any civilians or dead. The main forces, the equipment, burned almost 5 or 4 BMPs on the landing. During the first exit. The mortar does not work very well. Because, I don't know. How do we get out? We were placed right on the field under shelling.

VikingChieftain,
@VikingChieftain@krigskunst.social avatar

I: And what did you see on the way?
RS: 300 corpses. There are a lot of corpses on our side. Because they let us in like meat. They don't remove mortars. They let us be shoot. Like a live target. Like in a shooting game. I shot at my own. Because then they stormed ahead. We have the next landing. Where are the dugouts? We have to go to the field. And then we have to go to the three houses. Where there is a lake. There are two landings on top. Big forests. The battalion was moving.

RS: There were 300 people. There were no people left. There were 9 people left. Who were put there. Me and other guys. I was one of them. I was one of the V-men. I consider myself a moron. Because I made the wrong choice. I wish I had a better term. I wanted to get rid of the cops. I'm not the first time in the surveillance. They don't let me get a job. I don't want to leave this place. I don't have any support. I have only my grandmother. My parents beat me up. That's life.

@VikingChieftain@krigskunst.social avatar

I: How long have you been in the war?
RS: We were brought to Lugansk on April 18. On the 7th. We were brought to Belgorod. From Lugansk.
I: After the exchange. If it happens. Will you come back?
RS: Never.
I: What will you do?
RS: I will refuse to get a term. They will give me a term. I will be in prison. I will never go to hell.

I understand Biden's priorities. He has to win the election if we don't want to end up with a potential four year nightmare with Trump. You wish the latter would just be sent to jail to rot.

"When people ask me where you're coming from, I answer - "from the other world": a 70-year-old grandfather walked almost 60 km with three cows and a dog

This story is moving to tears. According to #Volodymyr, #Russian positions were located 3 km from his house, and in the last week, the occupiers shelled the village very heavily. Grandfather decided to save himself, taking with him only the most important - three cows named #Mukha, #Zoika, and #Mala, as well as the puppy #Zhorika.

American soldiers would land at one of five ports and be channelled along pre-planned logistical routes to confront a possible attack by #Moscow.
