So, Finland and Sweden have finally given in to Erdogan's demands?

With the Baltic Sea becoming effectively a NATO pond, I am not sure the West will care what Turkey does or does not do afterwards.

If you mean NATO calling Turkey by the new "non-Thanksgiving Day" appellative, yeah. Otherwise the only thing I see is that they are going to hear erdogan's long talk about his insecurities, that no doubt is going to look like this:

Ukrainian intelligence is looking for ex-Rada member Andrii Derkach from the Party of Regions. One of his assistants said that he was in touch with the GRU to set up a private security company staffed by Russian expats to potentially use them to siege Kyiv.

Still following up on this.

They literally agreed to:
- Confirm that PKK is a terrorist organization
- Stop supporting YPG/PYD
- Amend their laws on terrorism
- Address Turkey's extradition requests

Are you telling me those points are not Turkey's demands back in May?

Much ADO about nothing. What cErdogan wants is expedite extradition of whoever he wants, the lifting of the weapons embargo and probably some financial aid. As it stands nothing has really changed, Turkey must go thru traditional channels, which may take years, that is supposing thye has a legal leg to stand on.

As things stand, cErdogan won nothing to support him on next years elections.

Now only Austria (and maybe Ireland) needs to join NATO so Putin really feels how far his actions have backfired in him. TBT my worst fear was not him invading Ukraine, but asking the west to give him Donbas "or else" and he had a high chance of said strategy working. putin would then deploy his army every year to ask for another piece of Ukraine. Lucky us putin now has the attention span of a teenager and he blowed his load.

Jokowi Widodo made a visit to Kyiv prior to Moscow by stopping at Irpin.



FYI, tons of Indonesians are prey to Russian/Chinese disinformation and some parts of the Indonesian military have used Russian-made weapons dating back to when Sukarno made contact with Moscow.

Are they talking about the populace or the people in power. China has soft economic power over Indonesia, and yes the army buys Russian weapons.

But that's a non-factor for the populace. They have no inherent affinity for Russia or Ukraine because none of them are Muslim nations.

Indonesians populace don't like the US, and by extension NATO, because they still remember the gulf wars and the war on terror. And obviously they still support Palestine over Israel.

Indonesian populace still a deep seated resentment against minority Chinese Indonesians. Also there are still ongoing territory disputes with China, which have been used by pundits to agitate the public. And just like in other countries, COVID and its economic caused a lot of sinophobia.

Curious, what misinformation are we talking about

The usual Russian talking points:

* Ukraine's a bunch of fascists
* Zelensky's a Jewish drug addict (dealer)/fascist
* Azov's a bunch of pro-Nazi racists (It's not anymore. Original founders left and tried to do the Rada, but they sucked balls)

There was also a pro-Russian Indonesian FB group that displayed the Z and cheered for the Kadyrovites when they helped "clear" Mariupol. Not sure if that's genuine support or led by bots. Didn't want to go through it and read through that propaganda.

For China though, I remember that Fulcum (ISEAS Singapore website where papers/op-eds are published) that there are Indonesian groups trying to advocate for Xinjiang that did a 180 after the Chinese "reached out".

FT has launched an article on investigating where the seized grain from Ukrainian cities captured by Russians/DPR/LPR forces are going to.

This also means the ships that are involved are taking steps to mask their routes by going dark.

Seen videos of Kadyrovites walking around the center of Lysychansk.

Looks like half is gone.

The Ukrainian flag was planted at Snake Island.

But IIRC, no troops were stationed.

Looks like a lot of Russian activity in the Kerch Bridge in Crimea.

IMO this whole month will see little movement in the combat frontlines. BUT, imo, there is the distinctive possibility of one last major battle. I am talking about belarus entering the fray and trying to take Kiev. But that would only be a feint, what putin really wants is a pincer attack with well equipped wagner mercenaries coming from belarus and transnistria to attempt to close the western border so Ukraine can no longer get unlimited supplies.

putin knows this is his last chance, because next month slowly but surely he will see his butt kicked. IMO so far he has taken the bait, hook, line & sinker. Declaring victory on the Donbas will make for him impossible to remove his forces and they will be pulverized.
