Russian Maj. Gen. Vladimir Frolov of the 8th Army died in battle in Ukraine and was buried in Russia on Saturday, according to a statement from the governor of St. Petersburg.

The statement from Alexander Beglov offered no details of when or where Frolov was killed. As deputy commander of the 8th Army, Frolov commanded forces deployed to an area near Mariupol, the devastated port city that Russia appears on the verge of capturing.

Russian state media outlet Fontanka reported that Beglov claimed Frolov, whom he described as “a true patriot,” “fell the death of the brave.”

Slava Ukraini!!!

This is a website that lets anyone send a text message to a random Russian telephone number.

It was set up by a group in Poland and based on my limited usage it seems to work well. Some numbers are iPhones and others are not, but this is one way to get around the news blockade that Putin has imposed. I don’t know what impact it’ll have, but it’s something that anyone can do.

Protective barriers erected at Russian embassy after truck drives through gates

I love me some Irish! I've been to Dublin, so I know where the American Embassy and the Israeli Embassy are, but not the Russian one. I'd contribute to a GoFundMe for this guy! Or at least buy him some Guinness!

Excerpt: The Russian embassy in Ireland says it “appreciates” the cooperation of Irish authorities after a large truck was driven through its gates on Monday afternoon.

The embassy had initially accused the Government of violating international law for allowing the incident to happen, and claimed members of the Garda “stood idle” as the incident happened.

In a follow-up statement, however, the embassy said: “We would like to inform that additional measures have been undertaken by the Garda to ensure safety and security of the embassy and its personnel. The embassy appreciates cooperation by the Irish authorities in this matter.”

Security barriers had been erected on Monday evening creating a buffer between the embassy and protesters.

It's 2/22/22. It's a Tuesday.

Happy Twosday, everyone!

Just something to hopefully cause a smile (or a grimace, maybe).

Thank you for the hearts!

You all warm my heart with your gifts!

Happy VD! (Valentine's Day, of course, not the other kind!)

Retired Gen. on CNN Says Military Has 'Threat Within' for 2024

Excerpt:
Retired Gen. Steven M. Anderson spoke to CNN’s Pamela Brown about 2024 and blasted Donald Trump supporters in the military as a threat from within, and advised they stop listening to “the pillow guy” and get educated on civics.

Anderson, along with fellow retired Gens. Paul Eaton and Antonio Taguba, authored an oped earlier this month warning of the potential for a “Trumpian” coup attempt in 2024.

On CNN, he talked about the subject, saying the big problem is where allegiances lie, and the potential for a “cult-like” figure to sway even military members into insurrection. And he mentioned MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell as a major source of misinformation.

Personal Note: I knew Steve Anderson years ago when he was an XO to a Major General. He's a good, solid dude who understands what he's talking about, and he, along with Generals Eaton and Taguba, are taking their oaths seriously.
