Let's pray this trend continues


?s=20&t=TVwgzHoKEvR2q_0MFVeg7w

Also read another tweet that some of the Russian soldiers are surrendering. They didn't come to kill their brothers. Presumably, they were collecting information.

Just tidbits at the moment. This was a retweet from Malcolm Nance.

Just a tweet, so the info was scant.

6. Two thoughts

With surrender comes munitions and armaments. So if true, that will help the resistance.

In war, all information is propaganda. This could be a morale booster, it could be true, it could be to demoralize Russian forces and encourage defection and surrender, or it could mean nothing.

10. Something else happened today: a Russian platoon surrendered rather than kill Ukrainians

https://www.democraticunderground.com/10142876593

I don't believe this happened at the airport. But the Russian platoon said they didn't come to Ukraine to kill Ukrainians, so they surrendered. Putin is gonna have a BIG problem if this continues. The Russians were told it was a peaceful training mission or whatever, they didn't come to harm the Ukrainians.

12. Appears the soldiers were lied to as were the Russian people

Putin has lied from the beginning. From the sounds of these scattered reports, his glorious, first day blitzkrieg was not the success he had in mind.

Ukrainians are holding to their promise thus far: Russians are seeing their faces, not their backs. Still, the future is ominous.

The courage against a superior force is impressive. Protests within Russia are equally impressive.

The people, even some of the military, are not buying into Putin's spin.

The whole assault is irrational.

13. Good news. That's been the rumor. Hope it's true.

That means they crushed the airborne Russian troops dropped in by chopper. They're either dead, prisoners or both.

14. Putin doesn't give a shit about the welfare of its own citizens.

The Russian people may suffer sever economic hardship and Putin doesn't care. He always does what he wants and no one else is of value to him. Even if the citizens are vocal and demonstrating he either doesn't listen to that info or he just ignores it. Russian soldiers may surrender but that will also have little effect on his decisions.

15. God, it would be great if the Ukranians actually routed the Russian forces.

I'm sure it's impossible but damn it would be nice to see Putin actually lose.

17. The Finns did it in 1940.

Finland actually lost a chunk of their country, but the Soviets paid a huge price in casualties.

16. No major news network is reporting this,

It would be huge news, I have serious doubts. Tha airport story has been going back and forth all day. There has been zero reporting about Russians surrendering.

18. I am noticing that too.

Maybe they're working on verifying it before reporting on it. Fingers crossed it's true.

20. Might want to do a minute of research before posting something like this because

it takes less than a minute reading the tweet comments to know it is bogus.

23. The surrender of the Russian platoon has been confirmed by several other sources

As has the retaking of the airport outside Kiev.

22. What kind of hardware are the Russians sitting on?

Both my dad and brother were in the Navy in the 60's and the 80's respectively and said their ships were crap. Ancient POS and a wonder the things stayed floating.

I'd certainly imagine that has changed and they have the latest greatest war machines.
