Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, September 13, 2022

According to two sources close to the Kremlin, the Russian authorities have postponed their plans to conduct "referendums" on Russian annexation of the self-proclaimed Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics and of Ukraine's Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, and Kherson regions "indefinitely."

I imagine it must be quite tempting to give Russia a taste of its own medicine and support the revival of separatist movements in the Kuban and Caucasus regions.

But Ukraine has a huge mess to clean up in the soon to be formerly occupied regions. Reportedly a lot of people there were "relocated" to Russia.

Russia's ineptness is worrisome. Who knows what stupid thing they will try next?

@#2 ... Who knows what stupid thing they will try next? ...

That's my concern as well.

fwiw, an excellent overview of what happened this weekend in Ukraine, complete with lots of images and videos from Twitter...

Worth at least a glance to see what's there, imo.

You'd think at this point, with his military in such disarray, holding fake referenda in territory under questionable control for propaganda of dubious value would rank low on Putin's to-do list. It never should have been a high priority, but the Hitler-Stalin playbook seems to be the only one the wretched man knows.
