Anton was a resident of the Noosphere Engineering School and also developed Ukrainian drone racing. With the beginning of a full-scale invasion, he decided to defend Ukraine and volunteered to join the ranks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Once the defender organized night drone racing races, took part in competitions, and after February 24, his competitions turned into combat missions against the enemy. Anton participated in campaigns to repel the enemy and liberate the Kyiv, Kharkiv and Donetsk regions.

His last combat mission was in the Bakhmut direction. Unfortunately, Anton died as a result of the enemy's criminal actions.

Eternal memory of the hero! Eternal glory to Ukrainian defenders!

Russia is attacking Ukraine with nuclear cruise missiles without warheads, British intelligence

" Open-source images show the wreckage of what is believed to be a downed AS-15 KENT air-launched cruise missile (ALCM), developed in the 1980s solely as a nuclear weapons delivery system. The warhead was probably replaced with ballast , "says the British intelligence report.

Such an inert system would still do some damage due to the missile's kinetic energy and any unspent fuel, but it would be unlikely to be effective against its intended targets. According to the British, Russia probably hopes that such missiles will become decoys and distract Ukrainian air defenses.

" Whatever Russia's intentions are, this improvisation emphasizes the level of depletion of Russia's long-range missile reserves ," the intelligence agency added.

The US President called to honor the memory of the Holodomor victims

In November, the anniversary of the Holodomor - "death by hunger" is celebrated, according to the statement of the president, which was published by the US Embassy.

" During his rule, Joseph Stalin implemented harsh and repressive policies against Ukraine, including the creation of a deliberate famine in 1932-33 that resulted in the deaths of millions of innocent Ukrainian women, men and children. We honor the memory of all those who died in this senseless tragedy and We pay tribute to the resilience of the Ukrainian people, who survived devastation and tyranny to eventually create a free and democratic society ," he emphasized.

Ukraine commemorates the victims of the Holodomor

Memorial Day is celebrated every year on the fourth Saturday of November. According to tradition, Ukrainians light a memorial candle in their homes in honor of those who died from artificial hunger.

In the 20th century, Ukrainians experienced three famines: 1921-1923, 1932-1933 and the famine of 1946-1947. The most extensive was the famine of 1932-1933 - it is called the genocide of the Ukrainian people, carried out by the Stalinist regime. The terror that lasted in Ukraine for 22 months took, according to official data, about 4 million lives.

ISW believes that Russia has increased exchanges with Ukraine to appease a disaffected society

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has increased the frequency of prisoner-of-war exchanges in an attempt to calm discontent in the information space over previous failures to return Russian prisoners of war, according to an analytical report by the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW). According to analysts, the increase in the frequency of exchanges is probably partly designed to overcome the dissatisfaction of Russian military bloggers. They reported on the recent series of exchanges in a relatively neutral tone and emphasized an equal exchange ratio.

We will remind you that in recent days, Ukraine and Russia have exchanged three: 35 Russian prisoners of war for 35 Ukrainian prisoners of war on November 23, 50 Russian prisoners of war for 50 Ukrainian prisoners of war on November 24, and 9 Russian

He emphasized that while "Putin continues his reckless attacks on innocent people, our determination to help Ukraine only strengthens."

We will remind you that France, South Korea, NATO and USAID also informed about the provision of generators to Ukraine yesterday.

In Europe, they think that Ukrainian refugees will stay after the end of the war

" The key problem is that these families think they're going to go home the day after the war. But they're not going home yet. Their schools are destroyed, their homes are destroyed, their jobs are lost. I have to say this frankly, I've lived it myself war in Croatia in the former Yugoslavia ", - this was the opinion of the vice-president of the European Commission, Dubravka Šuica.

She called on Europeans not to stop supporting Ukrainians who need help.

" We must not show signs of fatigue, this is not an option. We must do everything possible - at the level of the European Union, as well as at the level of member states such as Germany - to help the Ukrainian children who have fled to feel at home ", - she noted.

" As of 11:00 a.m., one more nuclear unit has been put into operation, the capacity of the others is increasing to the planned level. Producers now cover about 75% of consumption needs. However, another 25% of electricity is still in short supply, so today a consumption restriction regime is in effect throughout Ukraine ," the institution noted.

Energy experts called on Ukrainians whose houses have had their lights back on, to help restore it to others as soon as possible - simply by consuming electricity sparingly.

Ukrainians are encouraged to light a candle in the window at 4:00 p.m. in memory of the victims of the Holodomor

" According to various estimates, the demographic losses of Ukrainians range from 4 to 10 million people. The largest number of victims of the Holodomor was in the Kharkiv, Kyiv, Sumy, Cherkasy, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, Zhytomyr, and Vinnytsia regions ," the commissioner wrote Dmytro Lubinets of the Verkhovna Rada on Human Rights.

Ukraine calls on the world to recognize the Holodomor as genocide

"The Ukrainian people with their traditions of national liberation movements were considered by the Kremlin as a threat to the existence of the Soviet system. Stalin's regime carried out famine, repression and mass deportations in order to break the spirit of Ukrainians, starving to death no less than 3.9 million people ," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted.

The department emphasized that for decades the totalitarian regime in the Kremlin did everything to hide from the international community the consequences of the repressive policy against Ukrainians, silenced, distorted and denied the facts in order to avoid responsibility for the crimes committed.

" Russia's aggression against Ukraine proves that unpunished evil and unrecognized historical mistakes are returning in our time on a worse scale. We call on international partners to restore historical justice - to recognize the Holodomor of 1932-1933 as a genocide of the Ukrainian people and to prevent further war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide by Russia ," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs urged.

We will remind you today that the Holodomor in Ukraine in 1932-1933 was officially recognized as genocide of the Ukrainian people by 22 states.

Goodbye and good luck. Until next time, BadCosmonaut.

At this point, y'all know the drill. Let me know what I missed or messed up. For other helpful links, check out Oneiros's list for Ukraine aid links, notmyjab's thread directory and other notables, and danceswithcrows's memery emporium. This is your Ukraine War Thread update for the week of November 19 through November 25 (Days 269 to 275):

Consider this your content/trigger warning. The more territory retaken and the longer investigators look, the more Russian atrocities crop up like UN investigators determining that Russian soldiers raped and tortured children before murdering them. Remember to read the comments before clicking links. Rue_in_winter put it well as did this cartoonist. Stay safe out there and consider practicing mental health hygiene. It's tough out there.

I'd like to comment on the issues facing Ukraine's electrical grid, but I am unqualified and therefore cannot. (/s, in case you couldn't tell) Ukrainians seem to be able to get it working quickly enough, though.

Just a reminder of who Ukraine is fighting for and why they fight, regardless of handicaps. Latvia's doing their best to make sure they can fight back in force (shout out to Oneiros for organizing the Fark brigade's donations) while some people take a more active approach, and Ukraine can't stop yet. (Side note: Big Red had some interesting info on prostheses)

Alongside Zelensky's visit to Kherson, the first return tickets were redeemed as trains started rolling into the station once more. The recapture of Kherson is likely why Russian losses, especially heavy equipment losses, have slowed lately. Then again, they've lost an astounding amount already. Plus there are lots of booms occurring in hard-to-check places...except when Russians happily post the footage on Telegram. It's how we knew about the most recent drone striking of Sevastopol, really approaching Chornobaivka levels of Groundhog Day there.

Let's check in on that cow shed in Bakhmut...and oh my, that's a lot of bodies. Like, a lot of bodies. Seems Ukraine has the entire area dialed in for arty strikes. Fortunately this drone found one of the few smart ones (Russians seem suicidally stupid at times). I wonder if he's from one of those Soviet-style penal brigades Wagner's been forming lately. Volunteering for that and then surrendering to Ukraine at the first chance you get would be pretty clever. Speaking of returning to the classics, there's also a rumor (take this one with a mega-sized grain of salt, it's Osechkin) that Putin is using Prigozhin to recreate the Oprichniki.

The war is going so well for Russia that they've started using dummy missiles in their terror bombing campaign (now officially terror). Ukraine estimates that Russia still has a sizable stock of missiles, but the range of estimates is still quite wide. Would be a real shame if those supply issues affected everything top to bottom. Hypothermia's a helluva way to die. And to think, NATO hasn't fired a single shot! Somehow this means they'll be prepared to take on Kazakhstan? Imagine if Ukraine took off the kid gloves on Russian logistics. Russia's economy is so shot already they might not even notice!

Our semi-regular Iranian temperature check. Why not throw in noted Putin fanboy Orban while we're at it? And to think there's an entire region of people in Moldova who look at Russia and think "yeah, I wanna be part of that" while their president has to make statements like this. Have to wonder what kind of brain worms infest certain people (I have some...opinions on Orban in particular). Might be because they're broke as shiat? At least some leaders of the former Soviet clients have spine.

In further corrections to official Russian government statements:

* Believe no rumors that the Russian Missile Corps has run so low on precision cruise missiles that they are stripping nuclear missiles of their warheads and using them for the task. The reality is that due to a miscommunication, one unarmed nuclear missile 'trainer' intended to allow technicians to practice repairs was accidentally launched. Additionally, dozens of new precision guided crewed missiles are being produced during every conscription.

* The ongoing civil war inside Russian Fried Chicken corporate headquarters appears to have spiraled out of control, with casualties reported in the accounting, human resources, and legal departments. While Commissar Sandersky has been quelling discontent with the judicious application of firing squads, a shadowy figure known only as 'Comrade Cluck' appears to be organizing the resistance, and claims to have liberated two franchise locations in Omsk. "This will not stop the planned roll-out of the tasty new Double-Down," marketing representatives have claimed in a statement issued from their armored bunkers. We will continue to report on this story as it develops.

* With the Russian Winter Olympics now in full swing, we would like to congratulate Private First Class Yegor Yamagovitch for winning the gold medal in the Artillery Assisted Leap Event. With the ruling by the judges that lighting a campfire visible to enemy spotters, spending a full hour on an unencrypted cell phone giving away his position, and digging a trench in the shape of a crosshairs were all valid strategies, his final achieved altitude of two hundred fourteen feet  was enough to defeat the silver-medal winner, who only reached a height of two hundred and eight. Congratulations to all competitors!

* In heartwarming diplomatic news, what began as a Russian army rout on the forest moon of Endor has turned into a potential new alliance, as several Russian soldiers who had been captured by Ewoks were able to win their trust by introducing them to alcohol. As these small, stone-age woodland cannibals had not yet developed fermentation or distillation technology, it is believed that with some diplomacy Russia can raise an entirely new infantry division of drunken, stumbling, furiously vomiting Ewok conscripts who will fit right in with the rest of the Russian army. Heartened by this development, the Foreign Ministry plans to next reach out to the Pakleds in hopes of acquiring new technologies.

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.  (Which I had to start trimming to comply with Fark's 100 link limit per comment). 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. (Links to them below)

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.

Brits and such should consider donating to UK charities as they can get 25% 'Gift Aid' matching from the UK government.

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'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, see https://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 such as the "Ukraine IT Army", 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/

The US had a variation of the Tomahawk cruise missile that instead of a single warhead had 8 independently targetable "submunitions packs that it could drop during it's flight.   During early testing the designers realized you could actually attack nine  targets with it because after it had dropped all its bomb packs it was still a missile going three hundred plus miles an hour carrying lots of juet fuel that you could order to go into a "terminal dive" against one last target.

SO this Russian tactic , while obviously desperate, isn't entirely stupid.  It will still cause a lot of pain and devastation . especially as Russia continues it's apparent strategy of  "commit ALL the war crimes"

Ruskis are losing a battalion daily if I read the above chart correctly, any information on replacement numbers incoming?

Also, resorting to using SAM and repurposed cruise missles to strike ground targets doesn't sound encouraging.

I understand obtaining modern technology from west is becoming more difficult, but do the ruskis still have the infrastructure and resources needed to produce the old 70's and 80's munitions?

TIA

The upside of using nuclear-capable missiles in this capacity is that they have a far larger fuel reserve and can therefore strike deeper into enemy territory or with more fuel remaining. The downside is that nuclear bombs are exceptionally heavy AND dense which means that the balance point is thrown way off and accuracy is shot. Not that we could tell if they had reduced accuracy anyway with how piss poor Russia's aim has been this entire war.

I've heard upwards of 20k prison recruits for Wagner (Soviet-style prison battalions, a return to the classics!) but I haven't seen anything about the regular fall recruitment numbers.

Between the draft and volunteer brigades from late summer, they could theoretically be bringing in ~175k less however many have already been thrown to the meat grinder. Of course, they're not exactly drafting 1-A quality men at this point.

My work day is over. We all, or almost all enjoy the inevitable side thread, but without current topics there for people to pull from in the morning, and comment on, the thread seems to derail.

Apparently Prigozhin is saying that he's got a retired US general working for him.  Is this just BS or is there any credibility to it?
