Two Military Jets Shot From Sky—Ukraine Points Finger at Russia

This doesn't end well.


Ukrainian officials said Wednesday that two military jets have been shot down in the eastern part of the country, and the missiles that downed them may have been launched from Russia.

There was no immediate response from Russian officials. Russia's state-run Itar-Tass news agency reported that the planes were shot down by a Ukrainian separatist militia.

  1. What in the world? Is there something wrong or unethical about shooting down warplanes which are bombing your cities and villages, killing women and children?

    1. Apparently your reading skills are deficient such that you didn’t catch the part about the missiles being fired from Russia. Across the border. As in, a different country.

      Whether it’s true or not is a different matter from your faux outrage.

  2. From reading a lot of news sites it appears Putin has a lot of apologists prowling the internet. Pravda is still alive. Wonder how much they are being paid.

    Putin is a creature of the cold war and agitprop was effective with a controlled media, nowdays not so much. Read a good post in the WSJ speculating whether Vlad would be content to retire with his billions of looted dough or try to hang on with the total shit lives his population endure. Will be interesting to observe.
