Last war with Russia in Ukraine: Putin says he ‘shares the pain’ of soldiers’ mothers

War in Ukraine: Putin meets the mother of soldiers

Warmonger Vladimir Putin claimed that he and other ministers “share the pain” of mothers whose sons are fighting and dying in Ukraine.

The president overseeing the conflict from his luxurious residence in Moscow met with the mothers of the soldiers on Friday before Mother’s Day – celebrated in Russia on the last Sunday of November.

Some reports say that around 100,000 were killed or injured in Putin’s bloody war, which he says is a “special military operation.”

Speaking on Friday, he told the women: “I want you to know that I personally and the entire leadership of the country – we share your pain.

“We understand that nothing can replace the loss of a son – especially a mother,” he added, breathing heavily and clearing his throat often. “We share this pain.”

Earlier, the UK Ministry of Defense said many Russian soldiers were being forced to serve in Ukraine with “serious” health problems, while those forced to build trenches under fire were likely to suffer “particularly heavy casualties”.

NATO promises to help Ukraine ‘as long as necessary’

NATO is determined to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia “for as long as necessary” and will help the war-ravaged country transform its armed forces into a modern army suited to Western standards, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Friday.

Speaking to journalists ahead of a meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Romania next week, Stoltenberg called on countries that are willing, individually or collectively, to continue to supply Ukraine with air defense systems and other weapons. NATO as an organization does not supply weapons.

ICYMI: Feeling flushed? A naked statue of Vladimir Putin from a golden toilet is up for auction to raise money for Ukraine

A naked effigy of Russian President Vladimir Putin, placed atop an ornate gold toilet, has been put up for auction by a group of Czech activists who plan to use the proceeds from the sale to buy and send a combat drone to Ukrainian forces.

In a parody of a monarch holding an orb and scepter, the Russian leader holds a toilet brush and a miniature washing machine, from which flows what appears to be fake blood.

The Naked Assassins, which also features Putin’s close ally and Belarusian counterpart Alexander Lukashenko, was initially created to criticize the Russian leader’s opulent lifestyle and has been festooned with several different props to reflect the changing circumstances of his rule since their unveiling last year year.

Millions of Ukrainians still without electricity

Millions of Ukrainians still had no heat or electricity on Friday after Russia’s most devastating airstrikes on the power grid to date, and residents were warned to prepare for further attacks and stock up on water, food and warm clothing.

Moscow says the attacks on Ukraine’s basic infrastructure are militarily justified and that Kyiv can end the suffering of its citizens if it gives in to Russian demands. Ukraine claims that attacks aimed at causing suffering to civilians are a war crime.

“Together, we survived nine months of full-scale war, and Russia has not found a way to break us and will not,” President Volodymyr Zelensky said in a late-night video address.

Poland asks for German launchers to be sent to western Ukraine

Germany said on Friday it was discussing with allies Poland’s request to send German Patriot air defense units to Ukraine, after the NATO chief suggested the military alliance might not oppose such a move.

“We are talking with our allies about how to deal with the Polish… suggestion,” a spokesman for the German government told reporters in Berlin.

Berlin has offered Warsaw the Patriot system to help secure its airspace after a stray missile crashed and killed two people in Poland last week. Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak later asked Germany to send fire units to Ukraine instead.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said such a deployment should be a national decision, taking into account end-user rules.

“Specific decisions on specific systems are national decisions,” he told reporters in Brussels.

“Sometimes there are end-user agreements and stuff, so they have to consult with other allies. But ultimately (the decision) has to be taken by national governments,” he added.

German lawmakers want to declare famine in Ukraine in the 1930s a genocide

Lawmakers from Germany’s ruling coalition and opposition want to declare the Holodomor, the starvation of millions of Ukrainians in 1932-33 under Soviet leader Joseph Stalin, a genocide, according to a draft motion reached by Reuters.

The project describes the Soviet leadership’s attempts to control and suppress farmers and Ukrainian culture and language through famine and repression. This “from today’s perspective suggests a historical-political classification as genocide. The German Bundestag agrees with this classification.”

According to German media reports, the draft will be discussed and adopted in the lower house of the Bundestag parliament next week.

Putin ‘forces soldiers with chronic health problems to fight’

Many Russian soldiers are forced to serve in Ukraine with “serious” health problems, while those forced to build trenches under fire are likely to suffer “particularly heavy casualties”, British defense experts say.

According to the British Ministry of Defense (MOD), there are many “common themes” in the Moscow experience of mobilized reservists and their deployments are often characterized by “inadequate” training and personal equipment.

An update from the MoD’s military intelligence suggests that the Kremlin is likely to be concerned that more and more families are willing to risk arrest as they protest against the conditions their relatives face in the war.

Most of the mobilized reservists had served before, he says, with “numerous examples” suggesting it was highly likely that their medical condition was not “properly screened”.

“Many are forced into service with serious, chronic medical conditions,” the update states.
