I'm not so naïve to believe every story I see, but I'm also sure that Russian troops aren't just running around being friendly as well.

100% there is raping and pillaging going on, some of what has been reported is probably only scraping the surface.

The picture of the hand is somewhat insignificant.
Is the story true is really what we should be concerned about.

The equivalent of when BBC use a Getty image to show someone filling up a car on an article about price rises.

We get it, we understand and most of us know what a hand looks like.
I suspect they didnt stop to document the hand at exactly the right point for a twitter photo.

Whilst some may go OMG thats not HER hand and fixate on that, maybe they would not be so keen to see the real thing semi decomposed and possibly even mutilated or showing other details you wouldn't want to see, such as being tied.
So is the rest illustrative too?

\/ yeah you need to snow flake. Annoying when you’re talking weather!

Is it though? There’ll be half wits who use it as an excuse to claim the rest of the story is made up too.
exactly there is no upside to it if your interest is in truthful honest reporting and not sensationalism (not not a dig at who ever posted the link here but who wrote it in the 1st place

Off-topic ... but hexagonal ice crystal got overused as an insult and the mods were hacked off enough with having to deal with it they banned the word. There's also a ban on the name of a certain lovely town on the North Wales coast.

This place has its delightful quirks :D

Woah careful there, we don't do "truth" in here.

If you don't tow the OCUK line and accept as gospel fact (and not some occasional propaganda) every single pro-Ukrainian post then you'll get called a Pro-Putin Troll/Bot/Stooge by the people who, just last week, you were agreeing with when they called for the torture and murder of someone just because they did the same thing first.
Well that's not really true, is it? If something is posted that's demonstrably untrue then I don't think anyone in here has an issue with the record being set straight? Or you can choose not to believe that and stay on your high horse about lefty liberals or some such nonsense, whatever suits your agenda I suppose.

Yeah, the majority of posts here are pro-Ukrainian, because the majority believe they aren't the ones on the wrong side of this conflict. And yes, some posters get pilloried for their views when the narrative seems to be in almost every post anti-Ukrainian. But that's in much the same way I think a flat earther or creationist should be shot down in a debate with a scientist. They are absolutely free to have whatever opinion they want. Just don't expect people to put up with someone telling them the world is flat.
If you want to support them or their position then chime in whenever you want rather than sniping at people attacking their position.

anyway, we are fine with terror attacks as long as they are in a good cause?
What, you mean like the USA conducting drone strikes and Spec Ops raids in sovereign nations over the last 30 odd years? Nah, I’m not fine with things that just sow the seeds of another generation that think the West and everyone in it is their enemy.

A Gazprom compressor station near the Finish border is just burning gas 24/7

Russia doesn't want to send gas to Europe, it can't send its gas to anywhere else and it doesn't want to shut down production so what is its last option? Burn it...

Satellite images show the fire has been burning constantly for several weeks now

As we get closer to winter with high energy prices, assuming no end to the war, that flare is going to be a big "up yours" to Finland.

I think energy prices are going to force negotiations at some point.

Just look at the rising prices thread here- and high prices will become more of an issue as long-term fix come to an end.

Or much more likely, a rather poor attempt by you to continually disparage Ukraine. You’re not as blatant as another poster, but you’re still easy to spot given which posts you like and how you’re quick enough to post about Russian gains.

That amnesty article was a complete farce. I wonder how much Russia was paying them.

Every conflict has two sides and they've totally ignored what Russia is doing to civilians, including indiscriminately bombing them, and oh, using a Nuclear plant as a base to store weapons and fire artillery.

just like everyone in this thread has ignored what Ukraine are doing too civilians.

lets pretend only one side can rape people... even British soldiers did it in our wars... straight up murdered citizens too, lets not pretend Ukraine are all perfect soldiers... especially when most of them are conscripted just like the Russians and not professionals
