Seems like a very dangerous situation evolving.

Hopefully the upcoming winter will finish off the Russian army. I know that historically it's the Russians who benefit from the cold but this time they're a rag tag bunch, ill equipped and poorly trained I can't see them doing well in sub zero temperatures.

Copied from another thread that I put this on as I thought helpful.

Would recommend yesterday's episode of 'Ukraine the Latest' podcast by the Telegraph. Its generally fairly on the money and some good analysis. Exact words are that we have no need to be more scared after Putin's speech yesterday than we were the day before.

View of experts analysing the speech was that this was expected and, from Putin's perspective required, in order to placate the noisy ultra-nationalists that have been questioning Russia's handling of the war.

They view the nuclear threat as a simple tag on at the end basically a "and look boys we have nukes remember" (with a nod nod wink wink to the ultra-nationalists).

We should be concerned not scared.

Following on from the previous thread and Magic's post about NK. Very interesting. Reeks of rats fleeing a sinking ship and I wonder if China have had a wee whisper in Kim's ear?

Over 1,300 arrested as protests spring up across Russia. There is also a mass exodus of those with the means.

Always good to see Russian ultra nationalists having a paddy. Great to see the POW news. It does mean something is shifting...

Certainly comes to something when you're imagined to out-NK North Korea! Rats fleeing indeed

Traffic arriving at Finland's eastern border with Russia has "intensified" during the night, the Finnish Border Guard said early today, while adding that the situation was under control.

Do you have a link for this? I'm sure I read last night on either BBC or Sky that the build up on Finlands border pictures were actually from a TikTok created a couple of days before Putin made his speech and that the border control officer reported nothing out of the ordinary?

Really? That would be fairly surprising given what we know about the price of flights to visa free countries spiking immediately. Although I suppose the sort of Russian who has a Schengen visa already might have better options than driving.
