One RuZZia is far more than enough, but to imply that there is more than one through the use of that plural verb form is taking it too far.

These "news" as the words pronounced from Zhelenski are from over a month ago. We know that the Donbass-front has been STATIC for more than 2 weeks now.

Ukraine’s military is not up to the task. They are outnumbered and outgunned. It will take a true miracle for them to win.

QUIT SUPPORTING UKRAINE WITH WEAPONS. ZELENSKY IS A CON AND PUPPET AND THE WORLD KNOWS IT. LOVE UKRAINE PEOPLE BUT THE UKRAINE PEOPLE NEED TO REMOVE ZELENSKY

Юрий Каюров August 5, 2022 - 6:53 PM

Russia is liberating Ukraine from the Kyiv regime, which is fully funded by the US and is carrying out US orders to fight Russia to the last Ukrainian. In the liberated territories, Russia is restoring destroyed houses and establishing a peaceful life. The Zelensky regime in anger began to shell the liberated territories, shoot at civilians and scatter anti-personnel mines in the liberated cities, among civilians. It is they who are at war with their own population, endangering women and children who can be blown up by anti-personnel mines. In the liberated regions of Ukraine, people massively receive Russian passports and become Russian citizens. They hate Zelensky's puppet regime.

Donny August 5, 2022 - 6:53 PM

By bombing civilians?

Jalloh Jalloh August 5, 2022 - 6:54 PM

Why now Zelensky?
This is something that was inevitable from the beginning of this conflict but you kept on telling people that Russia is loosing I'm not here cheering for a Russian or Ukrainian victory but the fact of the matter is Russia will not loose this if you think other wise how do you think they are breaking through Ukrainian fortified positions that have been built for 8 good years + a NATO trained military force
