Oh please… the ABC is more compromised the Zelensky! Ayei_Eloheichem Ukraine is Europe so they are not in our part of the world He should ask wealthy Germans not us Our debt is $1tril We can not afford to keep funding Ukraine's war I bet they do not take a rocket launcher or drone as good as a tank and there are plenty of tanks lying around in the Ukraine. Just metal coffins for the crew . Only suitable for fast speed desert conditions and not suitable for city fighting use at close range . Waste of money

yeh, the Next model be better too. Lotta support for Russian efficiency in this thread. Extra potato for each of em It’s being fought by drones, but keep up the propaganda ABC The ABC should tell its readers who the Lowy Institute is Did your folks put Nazi insignia on them, Vlod?

Ukrainian forces making 'rapid and powerful' gains in the Kherson region, Volodymyr Zelenskyy says Volodymyr Zelenskyy says his forces were making further gains in southern Ukraine . So the moment the world discovers that Ukraine defeated the almighty Russia in a conventional war, is when Russia fires their first tactical nuclear weapon. Will Russia admit it by firing off these spoilsport sore-loser weapons? IS there even one single reporter left on this planet that has the mental ability to realize that Putin could end all of Ukraine before breakfast if he wanted to? They just keep printing this newsfeed garbage. The Ukrainian Nazi gains, is the gains Russia wants them to have. With 370,000 additional Russian troops soon to enter the conflict, Russia is reshaping the battlefield. With NATO entry on Ukraine side, the Russian commitment of ONLY using Soviet built weapons, no longer apply.

They were destroyed And if 🇺🇦 is 'winning' as we are continuously told, why is Zelensky calling for a pre-emptive strike on 🇷🇺 by NATO? That would be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory if the 🇺🇦 is winning narrative was true. The most important comment made by Zelensky in this meeting was the call for NATO to conduct a pre-emptive strike against 🇷🇺! That would likely lead to WW3 yet the ABC doesn't cover this? Which is more important? The performance of our armoured 🚚 or the end of humanity? 🤦‍♂️

Ayei_Eloheichem Shame on ABC for being neo nazis supporter….. StopHazaraGenocide StopHazaraGenocide 💔💔💔 Give Ukraine️ heavy weapons AlboMP. Give them the tanks they need to do the job on Putler. SlavaUkrainii No military back ground , did acting classes in the US , and was funded for politics bye Biden ! Hmmm 🤔

Listening to the Ukrainian PM’s “defacto” speech, I have re- learnt one lesson of this conflict. The art of oration wins wars. Defacto , dejure, nailed it. VZ is using the same skills of leaders like Churchill, Thatcher, Menzies and Hawke; smart and passionate oratory.

Russia-Ukraine war: Australia to deliver ‘significant’ new support for Ukraine,” says ZelenskyZelensky urged nations to ignore Vladimir Putin ’s “nuclear blackmail”, predicting the Russian leader would lose his life if he dares to deploy nuclear weapons. | By Matthew Knott ukraine KnottMatthew KnottMatthew I am predicting that a lot of people will lose their lives if Putin deploys nuclear weapons KnottMatthew Yeah, let's ignore credible threats that would lead to the end of the world as we know it. KnottMatthew Zelenskyy nothing more than a beggar 😂😂😂 And never forget ‘There is no Ukraine, only Russia’

as they do. they are made for combat and protection.. Ah yes, the recipient of billions of dollars of military equipment in the middle of an existential war for his nation is an objective person to assess the quality of a few Australian trucks. Keep up the great work ABC. Anything happened with the British Royals lately?

Russia vetoed a condemnation in the UN Security Council last week, but in the General Assembly every country has a vote and none can veto resolutions.. “Will this sort of domestic dynamic of stepping down lead other central banks to think about that course of action? I certainly wouldn’t rule it out.

Mr Zelenskyy also called for further and tougher sanctions against Russia, and thanked Australia for being part of the international sanctions applied so far. Some 80 per cent of the region is estimated to be under Russian control. "Now is the time to increase this pressure, when Russia has staged this sham referendum and staged this annexation," he said.
