I think a lot probably have not been tabulated yet. But the number is large, and you know they're not as rounded to the hundred now but rather more specific.

The numbers of troops lost and captured have always been statistically odd. For the first few months, the total number of captured was always 1000.   This 530 could be a 600 (normal rounding) - 120 prisoner exchange.  Ukraine hasn't mentioned prison exchange lately but I expect it still is going on so they may not want word of details getting back to Moscow.

I'm thinking the kills there have not been really counted yet, might still be fighting there. Well, i say "fighting".

You gotta give credit to the people of the occupied zones. Puerto Rico has been dithering for decades to figure out their status. Lots of votes, close splits. They can't get their act together.

But those occupied Ukrainian zones. BAM. First try, after only a few months of consideration, and they know that they want to be part of Russia by a 93 percent landslide. You gotta admire that level of efficiency and decisiveness.

I suspect prisoner exchanges go like this:

Russians hand Ukrainians over:
- Ukrainians meet their families
- Ukrainians post video to Telegram
-Tracianne posts video here.

Ukrainians hand Russians over:
- Russians throw tantrum, saying they don't want to go back.
- Russians get thrown in jail for failing Vladimir.
- Wagner group goes to jail to pick recruits up.
- Russians end back where they started.
- Russians end up on Harlee's spreadsheet.

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 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 can call out dumbasses online who are spreading russian propaganda and otherwise spewing toxic crap.  (Or join groups like NAFO) And by ignoring or blocking the assholes on here who try that shiat. (Make sure to watch for other threads, not just the daily one)

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://standwithukraine.today/ukrainian-charities/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/tgc00n/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/

I make no claims about any of these groups.  I've trimmed a few that people have said might be suspect, but I have no personal knowledge of any of them.  If you feel the need to vet them before donating, see GuideStar or Charity Navigator.

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.

If you've gained profits from stocks, consider donating the stocks directly, so they get the full value and you don't need to hold some back to pay capital gain taxes.

If you can't donate money, but have free time and the health to do it, consider volunteering your time to groups to help them free up money to spend in Ukraine.

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.

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.  (https://www.uscis.gov/ukraine ; 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.  See https://linkpeak.io/l/defendukraine

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/

You're fine for now, i'd say. Also, i'm thinking that the russians who blew up that bridge did in fact realize they would trap their "comrades", they just didn't give a damn.

Smoking GNU: Also, i'm thinking that the russians who blew up that bridge did in fact realize they would trap their "comrades", they just didn't give a damn.



I would go even further, they probably had the new conscripts in the back / "wrong" side of the bridge, and hoped that they'd slow any chase down like a meat shield. It seems consistent with their doctrine so far

kbronsito: You gotta give credit to the people of the occupied zones. Puerto Rico has been dithering for decades to figure out their status. Lots of votes, close splits. They can't get their act together.

But those occupied Ukrainian zones. BAM. First try, after only a few months of consideration, and they know that they want to be part of Russia by a 93 percent landslide. You gotta admire that level of efficiency and decisiveness.


But PR is surrounded by a big water, if you recall. Big water.

Also :

USA: you get to vote for you status! (This is recent. It isn't beyond living memory that even talking about this here, or waving a PR flag would get you in jail)
PR: ok. Great . Statehood (at least a couple few times since I've lived here)
USA: wait! Wait! That's not how you're supposed to vote.
PR: really? Well okay. Status quo? (At least once in the recent past)
USA: no, no, no! Why can't you get your act together and vote the way we want you to (today).
PR. Sure, whatever (packs lunch and beer and heads to the beach). There are more productive activities than this.

You may have missed the dripping sarcasm on that post.

That's what /s is for. We have enough of an orc-sucking roach infestation as it is most days.

It was a very obvious joke.


Even I picked up on it, and I'm pre-caffeinated.
