How much longer can Ukraine last? One more month? I hope these guys walk away from this insanity and go home to their families because there is no point in dying for Wall Street.

Al Ha August 4, 2022 - 1:03 AM

Sooo…are they aiming/hitting each other's artillery? Or they both fire into the middle bc both artillery countries too far to reach other. I don't get artillery..lol

Anyone who follows the war in detail knows Ukraine has made dozens of attempts to launch an offensive in Kherson and has failed every single time. Only western media peddle the fable of a fictional ‘offensive’.

The Russian trolls are helping Sky News metrics. Similar stories have been shown on many media channels, but the trolls choose to help Sky News with views and comments.

There is no slugging match. The Ukrainians are being slaughtered.

The Russobots are all over this.
Must be on a piece rate.

Natan Messy August 4, 2022 - 1:28 AM

Poor Ukrainian solider think his wining and asks for more weapons not knowing it comes from snatching from citizen mouth.

Slava Ukraine 🇺🇦🇪🇺🇺🇦🇪🇺🇺🇦
Glory to the BRAVE HEROES 🇺🇦🇪🇺🇺🇦🇪🇺🇺🇦
Ukraine will win this war!!

Jake August 4, 2022 - 1:29 AM

Russia can't get the Ukraine military so they target civilian buildings. Their missiles aren't accurate at all. Reminds me of how ISIS fought in Syria. Russia is really just a big terrorist group. Same mentality more weapons

Stamford Meetup August 4, 2022 - 1:32 AM

Day 160 of Putins 3 day invasion. Not going very well for the Orcs which is good.

Marcin 13 August 4, 2022 - 1:33 AM

Send more weapons to defeat the Russian Dicator

Shay 007 August 4, 2022 - 1:34 AM

Putin cruising has control of the part of ukrainr he needs

chaosXpert August 4, 2022 - 1:36 AM

I genuinely believe that Russian missiles and artillery are just really inaccurate. I don't believe they purposely try to kill civilians. There weapons are just old and outdated

Delta Two Niner August 4, 2022 - 1:36 AM

Little putin. With his delusions of grandure. Putin struggles with his homosexuality, his list for young men, while trying to pit on a certain image of strength. His ambitious be like Hitler have gone too far. Putin is worse than Hitler. He wants the former soviet union territories under russian control, all the ports, roads, grains, gas, oil, pipelines he wants it all, to make up for his little man syndrome. Putin in real life is only 5'4' with a woman's size 3 shoe size. Putin needs to be arrested for war crimes, or meet the same fate as his opponents

Perceval X August 4, 2022 - 1:36 AM

Russians are going to price a heavy price. Collapse and utter defeat is imminent.

Fapplication August 4, 2022 - 1:39 AM

Holy crap, the Russian trolls really are out in force in the comments. It used to be more low-key and subtle, but now it's blatant. Regardless of the "truth" of what's happening on the front-lines, one thing is for certain: Russia is getting increasingly desperate and sloppy in pushing their narrative.

Lee Fenwick August 4, 2022 - 1:40 AM

And Travneve has just fallen to the Russians 🇷🇺 Ukraine a little smaller… By the way sky this isn't Kherson where no offensive is even taking place but its clear evidence the fortified south is falling rapidly… Slava Russia 🇷🇺

More propaganda, tell us the real truth. Mainstream media liers.

FV August 4, 2022 - 1:41 AM

It is Day 161 of a 3 Day operation .Was BEATEN & RETREATED & FAILED to take KYIV . Approximately 41,000 Dead Russian Soldiers . Russia Started with 7 Percent , then Controlled around 60 Percent , Now Controls 20 Percent , Soon to be 0 Percent , Ukraine is getting MLRS 270s & HIMARS while Russia is getting 1960s Tanks . The Supposedly 2nd Best Russian army is getting HUMILLIATED by the 30 th rated Ukraine . The Entire World is Laughing at PUTIN & his Joke of an army. How EMBARRASSING to be Russian

Shannon Donahue August 4, 2022 - 1:42 AM

We must continue the flow of weapon and artillery and heavy artillery, planes to bombard Russian positions, shells rockets and drones etc. To Ukraine. The more the better!

J G August 4, 2022 - 1:44 AM

Slava Ukraine!

Dave Barker August 4, 2022 - 1:44 AM

Zelensky is a war criminal. For eight years he has killed his own people. Viva Putin and Russia!

michael aldridge August 4, 2022 - 1:46 AM

Come on Ukraine do what needs to be done and end this .send them packing .

Jonathan Stones August 4, 2022 - 1:46 AM

It's fine asking for more equipment but at some point the tap will have to be turned off. Yes we feel for Ukraine but not one NATO country is going to reduce their fighting capabilities to put themselves at risk by sending all this equipment. A line in the sand will have to be drawn at some point. And how is Ukraine going to pay back all this whichever way the outcome goes?

Sebastian Rosenberg Lenda August 4, 2022 - 1:46 AM

Slava Ukraini, destroy the drunken orcZ.

A day don't go by when Zelensky don't ask for heavy weapons just so that they can sell it to third p*arties.N*o wonder they are the most Corrupt country in Europe 😀

Christophe Bobda August 4, 2022 - 1:51 AM

Putin is worse than Hitler.

StrikeEagleModels August 4, 2022 - 1:52 AM

Yeah the thing is the artillery slug fest is happening in Ukraine not Russia 🤔

Ivanna Jerkov August 4, 2022 - 1:53 AM

This is not a war. It's the obliteration of a U.S. proxy state.
