I don't know about the rest of you, even as a non-American and non-Ukrainian, things are feeling pretty f'ing shiatty out there right now.

Is it true that the Russians have encircled 2500 ukrainian troops? I haven't seen any news service pick up that story?

i'm not really worried about UA at the moment. This is unfolding more or less how it was predicted to do by that young minister UA has...

UA needed to grab the wolf by the ears and attrit the orcs of resources and buy time to absorb the aid arriving and field the new "Kitchner Army" that should be getting out of basic about now. All this they're doing.

It was predicted in ... what... april? that the orcs would hit their high water mark and we'd see Peak Orc in the summer: they're throwing everything they have to seize the Donbas so they can say they won it. UA is making them pay for it and tying them down there, but whether or not they take it is sort of irrelevant to UA. They'll have their new army, equipped with beautiful toys, soon.

My only regret is the orcs are getting better at knocking down drones, which means less of my favorite boom footage.

I'm getting a late start. This, in spite of the fact I have been up since 3am. I learned a new term. A woman masturbating is 'Jilling Off'. Anyway:

Operational information as of 06.00 24.06.2022 on the Russian invasion:

The enemy does not stop conducting offensive actions in the Eastern operational zone in order to establish full control over the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions; maintenance of the land corridor between these territories and the temporarily occupied Ukrainian Crimea; blocking of Maritime Communications of Ukraine in the north-western part of the Black Sea, as well as the maintenance of the captured areas of Kherson and part of the Zaporizhzhia regions and attempts to create favorable conditions for the resumption of the offensive in the Mykolaiv region.

The enemy continues to launch missile strikes on critical civilian infrastructure on the territory of Ukraine.

On the territory of the Republic of Belarus there is a build-up of the system of engineering and fortification equipment of defensive positions in the border areas with Ukraine and the countries of the European Union.

In Seversky, Kharkiv, Sloviansk, Severodonetsk, Bakhmut, Novopavlovsk directions, the enemy fired from tanks, mortars and carried out artillery strikes.

Fighting continues for the city of Severodonetsk.

Offensive actions of the enemy in the area of Borivsky were successfully stopped by Ukrainian forces.

As part of the logistical support, the occupiers are trying to mine the waters of the sea port of Berdyansk.

In the South Bug direction, the enemy struck the positions of our troops near the village of Bila Krynytsya. Our air force hit the enemy in response.

Ukrainian partisans continue to resist in the temporarily occupied territories. Total resistance of Ukrainians continues.

If a woman wants to terminate her pregnancy, throwing her and her doctor in jail after terminating the pregnancy does wonders for the prison system.

2 for 1 discount.

But if a person wants to buy a firearm there is no law against using the firearm on themselves.  This hurts the prison system.

Don't worry.  In *40* years the opportunity will come to rebalance the Supreme Court back to a neutral stance, at least under current law.  Then you've got a chance to reset this crap, and every they negate or set precidence for in those 40 years.

Your grandkids might have the right to decide what's best for their bodies!  Or great grandkids...  Or great great grandkids...

So DE finally delivered a battery of German Haubitzen 2000 to UA, huzzah!

now, here's the next chance for Scholtz to blink: German industry is ready to sell them 100 more like yesterday.

I dont know how many SPGs UA currently fields, but i would expect if this number was augmented by 100 quickly that would be a measurable impact felt right away, provided of course the crews are ready.

You afraid of your car blowing up every time you turn the key?
You afraid of some poor bastard who's kids you abducted and sent to Russia having a sniper rifle?
You afraid of completely random IEDs in the road and market?
You afraid that hooker you hired might just bite your **** off instead of sucking it?
You afraid of Ukraine Special Ops teams crawling through your window at night for a 'little chat'?  Or deciding to do some civil 'deconstructive engineering'?

You worry too much my friend.

I'm sure NONE of that will happen in the occupied territories.  They are all glad and welcome to have their new Russian Rescuers in charge!  Honest!  You saved them from that evil Jewish/WesternNazi plot after all!

The day the orcs invaded UA I went in for a surgery on my foot to correct some lingering birth defects i've been dealing with my whole life because my parents thought the invisible sky wizard would heal me. The surgery went well, i spent a week in hospital doom scrolling the war, and then i got a cast on my foot and thats when things got farked.

The cast was way too tight and basically strangled my heel of blood and it turned black and died. Long story short, after wondering what to do for some months, they decided to cut most of it off a few weeks ago and now i'm waiting on a skin graft to rebuild it. This has been months of terror of "if you get infected we might amputate" to hope of it healing to whatever... its been farking awful. Good news is, now, i've got 20 days left in hospital, i'll get my graft on friday and then 2 weeks after that i should be home relearning how to walk and researching medical malpractice lawyers.

I'm trying to stay positive about it all but by the time i'll get out of hospital it'll have been six weeks this time and that's abeen hell on the wife (and our kids), gut punched my career, given me light PTSD from the worry of it all and yeah its a nightmare. At least, tho, i'm in germany, and i wont have to worry about being fired or get buried under an avalanche of medical bills liek i would be if i was still in the US.

Ukraine aid links

Two and a half months ago (day 44), many of us felt helpless and listless at not being able to do more to help, so here is 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.

Saving Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Online (SUCHO):  https://www.sucho.org

Shadows Project (Survey for what cultural stuff they should put online, and an Instagram page of Ukrainian art):  https://beacons.page/shadows.project

Ukrainian Global University needs volunteers to talk educational institutions into helping displaced students:  https://uglobal.university/

Learn about Ukrainian History (and raise funds):  https://youtube.com/watch?v=tl070rPB58M

If you're a US citizen, call your congress critters and let them know how you feel:  (202) 224-3121.  Or if you want to sponsor refugees:  https://ukraine.welcome.us.  But you may want to try to find an NGO, as if you directly sponsor them you're financially responsible for two years.  (So tell your representatives to give them refugee status)


If you would like to avoid doing business with companies still operating in russia, seehttps://www.dontfundwar.com

If you use streaming music services, search for Ukrainian artist playlists, so you'll give them a fraction of a penny and maybe find some new artists to support more directly.

If you watch cam sites, consider supporting Ukrainians (although some may currently be displaced, others may tag Ukraine to show support because they're from neighboring countries, and some of the most in need of support may not currently have internet access; I don't have any sort of definitive list)

There are also efforts to DDoS Russian websites, but I'm not linking to them to avoid risking the mods removing this whole list.

Also see the official Ukrainian website on ways to support their effort:  https://war.ukraine.ua/support-ukraine/

Father_Jack: Good news is, now, i've got 20 days left in hospital, i'll get my graft on friday and then 2 weeks after that i should be home relearning how to walk and researching medical malpractice lawyers.


Wahoo!  Gratz man!

I know it's been a long time, and you've got some serious shiat to process, but there is light at the end of the tunnel, and it's not the oncoming train for once!

Good luck!

One note though... do your physio, and try not to get too frustrated.  I paralyzed my dominant hand a few years ago, and regaining 90%+ use of it took a LONG time.  I got to 50% within 2-3 months, but the rest is *SLOW*.  And frustrating.  So frustrating you start screaming curses at your own farking body for not doing what it is supposed to do, you know it knows how to do, but it just won't FARKING DO IT!.

The number of mishaps, broken shiat, and screaming fits I had are too numerous to be listed...

Well, I think the likelihood of me ever having having grandchildren is... unlikely, for reasons that I'm not going to go into here (but I don't doubt that my whining has resulted on me being on a fair few Farker's "ignore lists" ;P ) And... I understand your sentiment, and this is in no way a criticism either of you or of what you wrote, but saying "someday things will be better" is really frustrating when there's no f#ckin' reason that things needed to become worse, y'know..?

If I had the means... well, depending on what means I had, I'd be doing a lot of things, but amongst them I'd be taking a course on government & politics; I don't want to just "do something..!" as a knee jerk reaction, but to be sufficiently informed to "do something..!" useful and long-lasting; I'm already doing what I'm able to, but it's very slow burn, and it's also limited by i. mental health issues and ii. having no f#ckin' money (please refer to i.)

Sorry, just ranting out loud

GrogSmash: For those of you having a rough day... might I suggest the Caterday thread as well.  It isn't much, but cuteness does help take the edge off by making you smile at least a few times.  In the meantime, just a quick dose of it (not my beasts...)
