Americans seem to not care about anything else around the conflict between Ukraine and Russia other than the death and destruction….so I will give you what I know as of today….
Ukraine is retaking territory as far as the reports tell….
Ukraine said Wednesday it had retaken five more settlements in the southern region of Kherson as Kyiv continues its counteroffensive despite mass Russian missile strikes that hit the country in the past days.
“Ukrainian armed forces have liberated five more settlements in Beryslav district (of Kherson region): Novovasylivka, Novogrygorivka, Nova Kamyanka, Tryfonivka, Chervone,” the presidency said in its daily report.
“The enemy continues shelling the positions of our units to deter the counteroffensive along the entire contact line,” the presidency said.
The Ukrainian army announced its counteroffensive in the south in late August.
After regaining almost full control of the northeastern region of Kharkiv, the Ukrainian forces recently claimed more gains on the eastern and southern fronts.
Ukraine said it had recaptured over 400 square kilometers (155 square miles) in Kherson in less than a week, after Moscow claimed to have annexed the region.
Kherson is one of the four regions in Ukraine that Moscow recently claimed to have annexed.
After retreating about 20km in the north of the Kherson sector in early October, Russian forces are likely to be attempting to consolidate a new frontline west from the village of Mylove, according to British intelligence. Heavy fighting continues along this line, especially at the western end, where Ukrainian advances mean Russia’s flank is no longer protected by the Inhulets River, the latest UK Ministry of Defence report reads.
Then with all this back and forth the usual rhetoric from the Russians….
A Russian Security Council official said Thursday that Ukraine joining NATO would guarantee World War III when commenting on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s recent attempt to join the alliance.
After Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a speech on annexing Ukrainian territory on September 30, Zelensky submitted a “fast-track” application to join NATO, which was quickly shot down.
Alexander Venediktov, the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, said that Zelensky’s application was a propaganda move. “Kyiv is well aware that such a step would mean a guaranteed escalation to World War Three,” he said.
Venediktov said that the US and its allies also recognize that Ukraine can’t join NATO without sparking a world war. “The suicidal nature of such a step is understood by NATO members themselves,” he said.
All this ‘news’ is just a day in the life of the Ukraine war.
Just thought you should know.

Elon Musk is terminating support for Ukraine’s aerial defense communications capabilities .. have you heard that he is shutting down their starlink system? That should make Ukraine haters happy.
I read that he was on a Ukrainian ‘hit list’ of sorts…..he will demand the US do something and we will do as we are told…just like our roll for Israel. chuq
It is no surprise that NATO turned down Ukraine again. The members are not at all happy with Zelensky’s lack of accountability prior to this war, and some think he might use NATO membership to try to take back Crimea. Even if he wins against Russia, I think NATO membership is off the cards, even before the latest Russian threats.
Best wishes, Pete.
I agree…..democracy and corruption needs handling before any consideration. chuq
NATO will get their chance at participating in world war III just as soon as they screw around and let Russia whip Ukraine and Putin invades some NATO territory that he thinks belongs under the Russian thumb. Once the Russoprick lobs a missile into Poland or somewhere, NATO will soon enough be engaged in that much-feared world war III … it’s only a matter of time because the Russian maniac is like a Hitler thinking he can not be defeated and thinking that he is going to retake all the old Russian territories — reminiscent of Sudetenland .. and after that it will be “Today Ukraine, Tomorrow The World” with that a**hole.
NATO will most likely be the reason there is a WW3….its expansion and meddling in stuff they should stay out of will do more to start a war than anything. chuq
Probably true but if they do not meddle as you put it then the whole world is giving aggressors like Putin a free pass to do whatever they want to do.
Does the world need another world war? Since the whole world is chest thumping it will be a given. chuq
AS soon as he invades article 5 will be invoked and war will happen….all the ghouls will e slobbering until then chuq
