[ Editor’s Note: I have a feeling there could be consequences for this. But that said, such weapons might have been sold long ago by someone looking to make some quiet cash, and the government not aware the inventory could have been pilfered.

Ukies were too lazy to scorch off the serial numbers. The provider will be tracked down now, and it won’t take long.

This is an example to readers of the huge amount of work that can suck up manpower in making advances, as captured territory has to be searched quickly to find weapons and ammo caches that can not only be put to good use, but not acquired by local guerilla forces to use.

Today we finally heard the claim that Kiev does not have full control over the nationalist battalions, via their refusing to execute the evacuation corridors to keep the civilians as human shields.

They have made no move to break to the West with the hostages to get to the friendlier West Ukraine. Reporting states, strangely, that they are trying to force Kiev to save them somehow, when Zelensky has his hands full already.

Odessa has been more fortunate with it not even having been shelled at this point and everyone praying for a ceasefire and a deal that leaves them with the city intact. The Russians would prefer that, too… Jim W. Dean ]
