In war nothing is predictable and temporary gains makes no difference as time is essence to prepare a full scale bombing and what you expect can be unexpected to come. Putin is very cool at a look different from zele ranting and have to wait and see what happens time to come.

Maybe Ukraine should stop shelling the plant...

Oh no not a blindfold!!!! 😳

Another 'alledged' story running the mills so long as there is no proof it is fake. Look what happen to the other alledged story on the Nord Stream leak ? I think they know who 'sabotaged' and that story is now being consigned to the dustbin.

Don't we have a foreign policy expert in the WH? Trump will no political experience had world peace and signed more peace deals. Now, the globalists in charge and everywhere is war. Taxpayers money going to foreign lands and invasion at our borders while food prices are rising.

Those Russians are kinky

Because the chief has been cybertorturerd by Japanese satellite terrorists who see through his eyes?

More reporting on Ukrainian oligarchs funded crimes...

They're desperate to turn the electricity away from Ukraine towards the EAST .

Putin failures: - Take Kiyiv in 15 days, retreated. - Chase ZelenskyyUa from Ukraine, Zelensky not only stayed but got stronger internationally. - Demilitarize Ukraine, Russia/World armed Ukraine - Ukraine from joining EU. - NATO expansion, 2 more countries joined NATO

ScottASorel I heard this this morning. Yet I've heard NOTHING ABOUT IT SINCE! Like WTF!!💙💛🇺🇲🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺🇲

Russian interrogator: “You will tell me how to sabotage the nuclear reactors when we flee… I mean strategically reposition… this area so that they melt down a few days later so we can blame you for the ‘disaster.’”

Can Ukraine plz stop shooting at the powerplant?

odds are that it's not even a nuclear powerplant. they didn't even know how it worked the entire time, and the designs for it were copyrighted from the start so nobody had the right to replicate it worldwide. nobody ever will. iinventedthenuclearpowerplant followthewhiterabbit

Wow! Can you fucking stop the God damn adds so people can actually read this propaganda! Who know if this is true. I can't tell because of 1000345738542845937 adds!

Jon is coming to take the russian filth out

PattyArquette That’s bad.

Triggering AP hacks

Temporarily blindfolding someone during wartime? Egads!

This is also a region where police where ski masks when on TV due to the rampant corruption

Never happened under trump.

So who’s running things at the nuclear power plant

Someone please do the same to Putin.

“His detention by (Russia) jeopardizes the safety of Ukraine and Europe’s largest nuclear power plant,” said Energoatom President Petro Kotin


Whats all this war about

They kidnapped him.

Pooty the scumbag

Well when Russia is losing territory on a regular basis, all they can do is a knee jerk terror type response. Complete failure of that invasion and the Russians inside their homeland will start turning on Putin. He has to go

When would they put an end to all these?

What could possibly go wrong?
