So sad to read a story like this. Salute to heroes.

Idk, to be honest it feels kind of stupid. They made a point but idk if it was a point worth doing for.

The propaganda value is immense for the defense force.

It’s demoralizing if anything.

it was stupid to keep them there completely defenseless against the ships.

either give them equipment needed to fight or pull them back where the soldiers can actually make a difference.

entirely pointless loss of soldiers.

No one wants war, including Russian citizens:


Fuck Putin. You'll rot in hell.
