    Pootie is reportedly not turning up for the may day parade in Moscow - at least not in person. He'll show up via video screen, Big Brother style.

    No reason has been given. Could be health related or just his massive paranoia. Though I would not be surprised if he fell back on old tricks and staged a false flag attack on the parade and wanted no danger to himself, just so he could call for massive mobilisation in response.

    That level of paranoia is going to kill him, ulcer, stress, heart attack. I do think it shows his weakness as he clearly cannot be sure he is safe even in Moscow. (if we take it at face value.)

    That would be so massively retardedly obvious of a false flag that I don't think even Russians would be willing to swallow it.

    Some of us keep hoping against hope that russians aren't completely braindead...but Stalin's eugenics seem to have worked rather well in that regard...

    On a more serious note, I sincerely doubt many russian believe any of the false flags by the russian government it's just that they either don't care or can't do anything about it.

    I agree. They are not stupid.

    Putin's speech summary: "Boohoo! it's not our fault and we're the good guys"

    Lots of cadets parading, very few vehicles, only 1 t-34 on parade, NO other tanks, not even the t-14.


    Edit: and it's over, in less than an hour. What an embarrassment.

    No tanks, no planes and an embarrassingly low vehicle count.

    Have they run out of propaganda vehicles?

    No VDV on parade either.

    Prig's claiming a russian MoD unit fled the battlefield in Bakhmut leaving the Wanker flank open.

    Populists all over the globe have a cult following that will readily believe they did not crap their own pants.

    Sounds like an excuse as to why they failed to capture Bakhmut by pooties mandated may day date.

    As an added irony about the parade, the t34 was one of the ex Laotian ones russia bought - and those were made in Czechoslovakia. Yup, it wasn't even a russian tank.

    Prig's also saying he will withdraw if he doesn't get the promised ammo, according to the articles on this and I hear he was complaining yesterday that he hadn't been supplied as promised. (to which I say, are you really surprised prig? Really?)

    Enfin, another article about the accusation with a bit more info, Le monde is a bit more mainstream yes?

    The whole Prig-Shoigu-Gerasimov-Kadyrov-DNR-LNR infighting circle really only demonstrates that the Russian chain of command is on the verge of completely collapsing.

    I seriously doubt at this point that the Russian military could at this point execute any theater wide operation, even a bad one like the 3 prong invasion last year, if they wanted or had to.

    If the Ukrainian counter-offensive hits hard enough, I think it's feasible that the Russian chain of command might just collapse completely and different factions might just start ignoring orders from Moscow.

    So the big military parade had a single ancient T34? Is that why Putin attended this via Zoom call?

    He was present in person...or at least someone who looked like him.

    But yes, one T-34 and some IFV's and APC's. A few Nukes (empty no doubt.), a few Iskanders and some S-400s.

    Did they even trying to hide this level of patheticness with some doctored footage?
    Sometimes, the light of the moon is a key to other spaces. I've found a place where, for a night or two, the streets curve in unfamiliar ways. If I walk here, I might find insight, or I might be touched by madness.

    I wonder if they actually brought out some troops for the parade or if they hired a bunch of out of work theater actors or something.

    I find it interesting no one found Putin intimidating despite his angry expressions and rhetoric. I swear I even saw some Russian spectators smirking/laughing in this parade.
