Fire rages on at key oil base in Russia amid wave of 'sabotage' blasts
Quote
Multiple explosions and a huge inferno hit a Russian industrial zone on Saturday 21 January, the latest in a spate of mystery fires disrupting Vladimir Putin’s economy.

Footage shows a blaze in a fuel storage depot ignited tanker train carriages filled with oil in key supply hub Angarsk.

Thick black smoke from the disaster was seen 27 miles away in Irkutsk.

The explosions - reported by locals in Angarsk - is the third major incident in the region in five weeks.

It came  amid multiple explosions and fires in key Russian facilities and suspicions of "sabotage" of key facilities.

War 'fatigue' setting in? NATO ally's big warning as Russia protests tanks for Ukraine
Quote
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Wednesday that Western support for Ukraine seems to be growing a little 'tired' and showing less 'emotional' involvement in the ongoing war. Poland has been a key hub for the transfer of western military aid to Ukraine. Now, the key NATO member is rallying the west to send as many as 100 tanks to help Ukraine fight back the Russian onslaught.

'Just like Hitler...': Russia's Holocaust comparison for U.S approach over Ukraine war
Quote
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has accused United States-led European countries of solving "the Russian question" in the same way that Adolf Hitler had sought a "final solution" to eradicate Europe's Jews.  Lavrov said Washington was using the same tactic as Napoleon and the Nazis in trying to subjugate Europe in order to destroy Russia. The Russian Minister's statement drew a sharp rebuke from the U.S. with White House national security spokesman John Kirby saying 'how dare he compare anything to the Holocaust?' Watch Lavrov's statement here.

US Taps Into Israeli Stockpile As Ukraine Burns Through 90,000 Artillery Shells A Month | Russia War
Quote
According to the New York Times, the US is drawing from its War Reserve Stocks for Allies-Israel, which includes ammunition stored in Israel, to supply Ukraine with 90,000 artillery shells per month. This stockpile is typically used by the Pentagon in Middle East conflicts and has been made available to Israel in the past during conflicts with Hezbollah and Hamas. Roughly half of the intended 300,000 rounds have already been shipped to Europe, with the final destination being Poland, as confirmed by Israeli and American officials

Why is Scholz hesitant to support Ukraine with Leopard tanks? | DW News
Quote
During his speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos today, Scholz pledged his country's ongoing military support for Ukraine and said that "Russia must fail" in order for the conflict in eastern Europe to end. 
He did not touch on the Leopard 2 tanks which some NATO allies, most notably Poland but also the UK and Lithuania and others, have been encouraging Germany to approve for export to the front lines.
Germany must approve the resale or donation of its military equipment to a third country.
Berlin is under international pressure to allow the transfer of German-made Leopard battle tanks to Ukraine.
There were some hopes for a big announcement but Scholz remained silent on the issue.
He mentioned the existing armored vehicles like Marders (weasels in English, Germany names most of its military land vehicles after animals) Germany had dispatched.
A meeting of NATO defense ministers is scheduled at the US Ramstein Air Base in Germany on Friday where the Leopard tank is likely at the very least to be discussed behind closed doors.
Scholz said Germany had also made "over €12 billion" (around $13 billion at today's exchange rate) available to Ukraine and would continue to support the country "as long as is necessary."
He called for the private sector to play a "key role" in nascent plans for the so-called "Marshall Plan for Ukraine" jointly recommended by Scholz and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen last October.

"Russia’s Historic…” | Putin Justified Ukraine Invasion In Latest Speech
Quote
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that Moscow’s action in Ukraine was intended to stop a “war” that has raged in eastern Ukraine for many years. Speaking at a meeting with veterans, Putin said Moscow had long sought to negotiate a settlement to the conflict in Ukraine’s Donbas, an eastern industrial region where Russia-backed separatists have battled Ukrainian forces since 2014.
“Large-scale combat operations involving heavy weapons, artillery, tanks and aircraft haven’t stopped in Donbas since 2014,” Putin said. “All that we are doing today as part of the special military operation is an attempt to stop this war. This is the meaning of our operation — protecting people who live on those territories.”
Putin insisted again that Russia tried to negotiate a peaceful settlement to the separatist conflict before sending in troops, and said “we were just duped and cheated.”

Russian ex-officer: We’re in a proxy war with the US | Conflict Zone
Quote
Few Moscow foreign policy & defense experts are more well-connected than Dimitri Trenin who left the Russian army as a military intelligence colonel and went on to head the Carnegie Moscow Center until it was dissolved in 2022.
Trenin, who spoke to Tim Sebastian from the Russian capital, says the Kremlin sees the war in Ukraine as an "existential" fight and that Vladimir Putin's nuclear threats need to be taken seriously.  Much of the Russian elites sees the conflict as a proxy war with the United States and its NATO allies. Trenin says many issues could have been resolved before the Russian invasion on February 24, 2022, but tragically were not.

German Social Democrats hesitant on tank deliveries to Ukraine | DW Interview
Quote
In an exclusive DW interview with Political Correspondent Anja Köhler, Ralf Stegner, parliamentary leader of the Social Democrats, talks about future military deliveries to Ukraine and why Germany continues to be cautious.
 
He also argued for a more varied approach to the conflict. "We not only have the military dimension of working together but we also have the political, diplomatic, economic dimension."
 
When asked how diplomacy could look like, he maintained "the problem with diplomacy is, if it wants to be successful, it has to be behind closed doors."
 
He also questioned whether the war could be won by military means. "I am very skeptical that it will be the military that decides about the future peace order in Europe."

 
In defense of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz he also said, "our chancellor, who is always criticized for being too slow, deliberating, (…), that has a lot of support in the public, our public, our population, people you talk to on the streets and you see that in the polls. Therefore we should be calm and do what we have done so far."
 
He further warned that "We have a lot of common interests with Ukraine, but the interests are not identical", referring in part to the no-fly zone that Ukraine asked for and emphasizing the importance of NATO not being pulled into the conflict.
 
Commenting on the remarks of a Duma representative that called for attacks on Foreign Minister Baerbock in Kharkiv, Stegner responded: "This is outrageous."
 
In light of recent pressure to send further military equipment to Ukraine, he also maintained "It's not smart to follow up on public pressure, we won't do that."

He says Putin is a war criminal and his imperialistic war cannot be allowed to succeed, yet speaks about diplomatic solution. I really don't see how these two things can exist together.

I'm reminded that there were German politicians that were speaking of diplomatic solutions even as Germany was winning WWI. It was German politicians, especially Social Democrats, who allowed the Marxist worker strike to happen in Germany right when it looked like Germany would win WWI for sure. Somethings never change...

It’s not hard to read the writing on the wall by the law abiding back in Russia.  Former convicts, pardoned after fighting in an imperialistic war with no rules, then returning back into an economically depressed Russian economy with little hopes of finding a job.    Not hard to see how bad this is going to be.

To even think that the thought of raping is treated a little like an after thought is disconcerting.

Wagner is rolling around in his grave by now I'm sure. Don't think he could ever have imagined in his wildest dreams being linked to Russian criminals, or Russia at all for that matter?

The art of the Jewish\Western false dichotomy for the blinded: Russia = (unjustified) aggressor = evil. Russia claims Wagner, a German composer, therefore Wagner = evil. Ukraine = (justified) defender = good. Ukraine claims Mozart, a German composer, therefore Mozart = good.

Wagner was clearly a superior composer to Mozart!!!

Wagner was Hitler's favorite German composer!

Putin and Zelensky are both Jewish.

'The exact opposite of the 'Wagner': what ex-marines from The Mozart Group do near Bakhmut
Quote
In March, former U.S. Marine Andy Milburn came to Ukraine to cover the war as a freelance journalist. He quickly realized he wanted to do more. Together with fellow marines, he organized training sessions for the Territorial Defense Forces while Kyiv was under siege. Shocked by what they had seen in Bucha, the ex-military decided to stay in Ukraine to help. Thus, The Mozart Group was created - a volunteer organization that trains the Ukrainian military and evacuates civilians from the most dangerous places near the frontlines.
hromadske spent two days with The Mozart Group's evacuation team, led by Irishman Dathan, in Bakhmut and Soledar. See in hromadske's video how foreigners with military experience found themselves in a humanitarian mission in Ukraine.

Fiona Hill warns of renewed Russian assault on Kyiv | Conflict Zone
Quote
Former Trump Administration National Security Council Russia expert, Fiona Hill, says Vladimir Putin is as determined as ever to conquer Ukraine on his own terms and that he may see reports of Russia’s battlefield losses only as Western propaganda and disinformation.
Hill told DW’s Sarah Kelly that Putin had not changed his goals of defeating Ukraine and that another ground offensive, including against the capital Kyiv is possible—even if Russian casualties continue to mount.
The former top White House expert on Russia said that Putin has still “got his sights on the capitulation of Ukraine, one way or another ... if he thinks having another go at Kyiv would be successful, then he will certainly try that.”
Hill, who testified during Donald Trump’s first impeachment on withheld US military aid to Ukraine and Trump’s phone call with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, spoke to DW’s Sarah Kelly from Washington for Conflict Zone.
