Good morning hope everyone is well. My male child had his sinus surgery yesterday and is recovering well. My instructor of the quarter board is complete, and next week I get to take some training instead of delivering it so that's exciting leading into a four day weekend. Hope everyone else has an excellent weekend, and .ore Russian tanks lose their turrets.

ZELENSKYY IS STILL ALIVE!!!!!

US President Joe Biden has signed the massive $40 billion aid package to Ukraine, a White House official has confirmed.
The bill was flown to Seoul after the Senate passed it in the hours after Biden departed Washington for his trip.
Biden is currently attending a state dinner with the South Korean president. He signed the aid package off-camera earlier Saturday.

Russian forces continue to prevent people from evacuating the Kherson region into Ukrainian-controlled territory, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said Saturday, accusing Russia of "terror tactics."
Villages there are on the verge of a humanitarian crisis, President Volodymyr Zelensky's office said Saturday.
Kherson has been occupied by the Russians since early in the invasion of Ukraine, and Russians have been allowing Ukrainians who want to flee only to go to Crimea, which Russia occupied and annexed eight years ago.
Ukrainians in the region have told CNN about critical shortages of medicines, and Russian harassment, disappearances and violence against people who have remained.
Convoys of cars trying to leave the area have been blocked for days at a time and sometimes fired upon.
The deputy head of the Kherson regional council, Yurii Sobolevskyi, said Saturday the Russian occupiers' "organizational incompetence and criminal actions ... are driving the Kherson region into a deeper humanitarian crisis."
He said Ukrainian local governments were refusing "to collaborate with the occupiers," which was creating a leadership vacuum.
The Russians trying to govern the occupied territories "do not know how to solve the problems of communities; their interests are limited to 'collecting taxes' and redistributing property and other assets," Sobolevskyi charged.


At least six people have been killed in Russian attacks on the city of Severodonetsk in Ukraine's Luhansk region in the past day, the head of the regional military administration said Saturday.
The dead include two people sheltering in a school basement, Serhiy Hayday said, adding that three people had also been wounded when Russians fired on the school.
"Two people died on the spot, three more were hospitalized. Two killed and one wounded are members of the same family," Hayday said in a statement on Telegram.
Residents of Severodonetsk had been hiding since the beginning of the war, according to Hayday.
Two women were killed by Russian shelling in Lysychansk and Privillia, and a man and a woman died near their house in Severodonetsk, he said, without specifying how they died.
The Russians "have thrown all their forces and efforts into the assault on Severodonetsk and cutting off the Lysychansk-Bakhmut route, so that we can't evacuate people, deliver the humanitarian aid or deliver any supplies or ammunition to our defenders," the official added.
Luhansk is one of two regions of Ukraine that has been partly controlled by Russian-backed separatists since 2014, along with Donetsk. The latest phase of the Russian invasion includes attempts to take full control of the regions.
"Fighting is currently taking place on the outskirts of Severodonetsk," Hayday said, asserting that Ukrainian forces had repulsed 11 enemy attacks. He said Ukrainian defenders had destroyed Russian tanks, artillery systems and combat vehicles in the fighting, and shot down two Russian drones.
A cooling tower at the Azot nitrogen ammonia plant in Severodonetsk caught fire during a Russian attack, Hayday said, but the fire was extinguished and did not spread.
He said about 1,000 people were in the plant's bomb shelters, and said authorities have tried to provide these people with everything needed: Generators, water and humanitarian aid.
"Thank God, there are not many chemical substances there, as Azot was not working to its full capacity, as it used to during Soviet times. But anyway there are the remnants of chemicals, which are hazardous and highly explosive," he warned.


Situation in Lyman deteriorated overnight. I'm with Ukrainian forces, police, medics evacuating civilians & it's near-constant artillery duels. American M777 howitzers working nearby, troops say. People fleeing are distraught, describe desperation. 100+ evacuated so far today. -- Christopher Miller

Ukraine aid links

A month and a half into the war (day 44), many of us felt helpless and listless at not being able to do more to help, so I started a list of things that we can do.

There are plenty of charities that could use your help, but even if you don't have spare cash lying about, there are still things you can do so keep reading.

You can donate directly to Ukraine if you want to help them make more videos of tanks blowing up. (See 'military aid' below)

There are lots of humanitarian groups working to feed the displaced people and even their pets.  (See 'humanitarian aid')

And even if you're not in a position to give cash, you might be able to find a group that needs some volunteer help or attend a protest.  If you don't have a group in your area specifically helping Ukraine, you can likely still find other worthwhile causes.  And there are groups that have tasks that can be done online or over the phone without even leaving your home. (See 'other notes'). Even just calling politicians to remind them that we need to support Ukrainians.

You could even just call out dumbasses online who are spreading russian propaganda and otherwise spewing toxic crap.  And by ignoring or blocking the assholes on here who try that shiat.

And you can even support capitalism, and buy stuff made in Ukraine or are fundraisers for the war effort.  (See 'buying stuff')

This is in no way a comprehensive list.  This is just groups that Farkers have mentioned in past threads.  If you want a more comprehensive list, see https://supportukrainenow.org . They also have links to specific groups by country that you're coming from for protests, taking in refugees, etc.  You might also find interesting charities at https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/tgc00n/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/

If you're currently employed by a large-ish company, they may have a donation matching program.  You can check https://doublethedonation.com/but it's also worth contacting your HR to ask even if they're not listed there.

You can search Charity Navigator ( https://www.charitynavigator.org ) or GuideStar (https://www.guidestar.org/NonprofitDirectory.aspx) for terms like Ukraine, and look find a group near you that needs extra hands.  If you can't find a Ukraine specific one, pick another one with a mission that you support.

From the Saturday May 21 Wall Street Journal:
"In a Ukrainian Town, a Collaborator Who Worked With the Russians Now Faces Justice"

(Excerpted because of the paywall.  Good details in the original on russians installing collaborators who are massively unqualified.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/in-a-ukrainian-town-a-collaborator-who-worked-with-the-russians-now-faces-justice-11652972162?page=1

The Russian-appointed mayor of Dymer tried to persuade locals to support Moscow. He was left behind as the Russians abruptly withdrew.

One of the first Russian checkpoints was set up a short walk from Mr. Kharchenko's family home, where a red truck he used for his clothes- and shoes-trading business remains parked. "I've been waiting for you for so long," Mr. Kharchenko told the Russian troops when they first arrived, showing them his phone and boasting that he watched only Russian media, according to neighbors who say they witnessed the exchange.

.
.
.

The next day, the Russians were gone from Dymer for good. Mr. Kharchenko's friend escaped with them to Belarus. Why Mr. Kharchenko himself has stayed behind is a matter of debate. Iryna, his mother, said she raced to the town hall that morning, warning her son that the Russians were departing. "He told me in response, but why should I leave? I have not done anything bad, it's my home," she said.

Mr. Pidkurhannyi, the mayor, says that Mr. Kharchenko was telling residents at the time that the Russians weren't really abandoning Dymer and would be back within a couple of days. "He really believed that the Russians would be here forever," added Mr. Liskov.

Ms. Stankevych, the town council member, said that, to Russians, collaborators like Mr. Kharchenko were simply disposable. "Why would they need a traitor?" she said. "A man who betrayed once can always betray again."

Regardless of where happens with the rest of the war the defense of the steel plant by the defenders of Mariupol will rank right up there with the greatest of tenacious defenses in warfare. It'll join the ranks of Masada, Thermopylae, Bastogne.

It's unreal that they held out as long as they did with basically no support.

They were told to surrender by their commanders.

I can only assume that something else is being planned, I just have no idea what.

Like I said yesterday (although with some help in obfuscation from either autokorekt or the filters), maybe they left behind a sapper corps in hiding, and need the russians to stop watching Azovstal.  Maybe they were just stalling for some other nasty surprise that they need the russians to advance to trigger.

Or I guess the supply level might've been getting low, but I don't think everyone would've agreed to come out if that was the only issue.

Only time will tell what's really going on there.  I suspect it isn't quite as clean cut of a win as the russians are claiming.  I only hope that not too many Ukranians are abused as POWs

Really dumb question, but what are those two guys with that cable doing on the crew? What's their function?


Grounding it before they load?

⚡Ukraine launches hotline for Russian army's soldiers to surrender.
After intercepting calls from soldiers conscripted by Russia in the Russian-occupied parts of Ukraine who compare their service to slavery and ask for help, the 2024 hotline was launched for them to surrender.

I'd imagine that will be used for traps. Hope it works well.

durbnpoisn: That's a shame.  Taking Mariupol is something I didn't want to hear.  As long as that siege had held for, I thought Russia would back off.

But no...  Now they are advancing.

Is there no way to put an end to this thing?


They never intended to permanently keep Mariupol. The goal was to make it hurt as much as possible for the russians to take it, which they did and then some. They will take it back. They are grinding orc forces down slowly and steadily, until there is no way for orcs to hold the stolen territory. Then UA will begin the serious business of taking back all the things.
