Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, August 16, 2022

Russia's Defense Ministry has blamed saboteurs for explosions at a military warehouse in northern Crimea that forced the evacuation of more than 3,000 people, Russian state media has reported. ... The incidents follow a series of explosions last week at a Russian-operated airbase in Crimea which Ukrainian officials had hinted were part of some kind of special operation but which Moscow said at the time was an accident.

Their range is now so terrifying for Putin's buttmonkeys that they've started lying and claiming it was sabotage instead.

Russia needs to get used to gorilla warfare, there will be nuch more of it coming. Can't wait for Russian cities to be targeted. The Eussian people need to learn how war feels and blame their insane leader not his victims.

The range of Ukrainian missiles can now reach anywhere in Russian controlled territory.

They're just being nice and trying to convince Russia to pull its troops out now before Ukrainians start destroying everything Russia has built in Crimea.

Coildn't blame Ukraine if they started assasinating every Russian on their territory. Make occupation as painful as possible.

'The people trust and love Russia'...

Loser says What?

Ukraine forever!

They might be right. All kinds of stuff is exploding, but in some cases the videos don't have any apparent projectiles impacting. People know to be filming though... Some are in locations that are implausible it is anything but saboteur teams.

Can't wait for Russian cities to be targeted

As of now, this is Putin's war. You don't want to wake the sleeping bear UNTIL it is common knowledge among Russians that this is an unjust war. THEN anything that makes the Russian populace suffer can successfully be blamed on Putin. Until then, stick with ammo depots, military command centers, supply routes, etc.

Russia isn't the US and occupation would lead to the deaths of millions from Russian summary executions and other means. Bucha was a warning. Look what they did to the Chechens. Look at how life in Belarus goes. Look at what they are doing to POWs. Ukrainians want their freedom.

"They might be right. "

"Sabotage" could mean anything.

Do you also believe that only "2 people died"?

Everything Putin says is either a lie or mostly a lie.

Kinda like Trumpy.

It has a pretty specific definition and context. "deliberately destroy, damage, or obstruct (something), especially for political or military advantage." People running around on the ground. Just in the last few days imagery has emerged of railroad tracks destroyed inside Russia, autonomous listening posts bombed by "suicide drones" far out of range of known loitering munitions, also across the border in Russia. Ammo depots in Crimea destroyed that are beyond the range of anything but ATACMS. Collaborators keep getting car bombed in Donbass. Russia is feeling the effects of partisans with explosives.

Sorry Vlad, it was just a "special military exercise."

Russian soldiers are close to insurrection.

They're tired of losing a war waged to help the idle, rich, and insane.

Danish NAFO supporter ...
This has to be the most pathetic thing you will see today. Russians are begging at the US and UK embassies to stop sending weapons to Ukraine that kills and injures Russian soldiers. Maybe the Russian soldiers shouldn't be in Ukraine?!

"It has a pretty specific definition and context"

I think you misunderstood.

"Sabotage" could mean anything coming from propaganda Putin. It was a military operation. Of course it was. It's a war. Is it "sabotage" when Putin attacks the transportation in cities in Ukraine?

Everything Ukrainians do in response to Russian aggression would probably be considered "sabotage" to pooty pooter.

Oh noes! Them Ukrainians are "sabotaging" pooty poots attempts to steal their country!

No, it's a cruise missile strike.

What they mean is pretty clear. People are running around blowing their ---- up, deep behind lines, by people pretending to be not what they are. Russia tried to do the same thing early in Kiev. People in the city shot them.

It's the Ukrainian's releasing the photos of it.. not a lot of lies to spin here. Claiming industrial accident only goes so far.
