Putin's Legacy? To turn Russia into a Joke?

Today's big *Victory Day* parade was missing one thing that was on the program: no jet fly over. Why? "Bad weather" was the report even though you can see sunny skies in the videos.

https://news.yahoo.com/russia-planned-fly-planes-z-091553560.html

"Russia planned to fly planes in a Z formation as part of a military parade for Victory Day, then called it off citing bad weather despite clear forecasts"

Putin's spokesman said the Victory Day aerial display was called off due to bad weather.

However, weather forecasts over Moscow during the parade forecast sunny skies and wind at 5 mph.

The "Z" formation was seen in television reports showing preparation for the May 9 parade.

Russia was expected to use its Victory Day celebrations to flex its aerial might, but a planned aerial demonstration over Moscow was called off suddenly on Monday, according to authorities, because of inclement weather.

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian leader Vladimir Putin, told local media outlet Kommersant that the aerial segment of the ceremony was canceled because of "bad weather."

However, during Putin's speech at just past 10 a.m. local time, an AccuWeather reading of the local weather in Russia showed "mostly sunny" weather in Moscow, with "excellent" air quality. The Accuweather forecast for the rest of the day indicated that it would be "mostly sunny," with some clouds, and that wind speed was around 5 mph.

The May 9 Victory Parade, which marks the Soviet Union's triumph over Nazi Germany, was scaled down by around a third this year but was still expected to include an aerial show of planes pulling into a "Z" formation.

Tass, a state-owned Russian news agency, reported on May 4 that the aerial display was to feature 77 planes to represent the number of years since Moscow's victory over Germany. Per Tass, the display included the Il-80, the "doomsday" plane that the Russians claim is nuke-proof, and other bomber jets.

Tass also detailed plans for eight MiG fighter jets to fly over the Red Square."

While Putin turns Russia into the punchline for a bad joke, Zelensky keeps growing stronger. Look at this badass mocking Putin:



Easy to see who's winning.

Putin was probably shitting himself that a jet would get shot down during the parade flyover. Too funny G, and it goes to show Putin doesn't feel safe in any corner of Russia.

Russian TV Schedules Hacked With “No To War” Message Ahead Of Vladimir Putin Speech – Reports

Nancy Tartaglione
Mon, May 9, 2022

As Russian president Vladimir Putin was preparing to address the nation Monday morning during the annual Victory Day parade commemorating the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, local television menus were reportedly hacked with program descriptions on smart TVs replaced by a message reading, “The blood of thousands of Ukrainians and hundreds of murdered children is on your hands. TV and the authorities are lying. No to war.”

Per the BBC, major channels including Channel One, Rossiya-1 and NTV-Plus were affected. The Washington Post said the same line appeared on the platforms of IT giant Yandex while RuTube, Russia’s answer to YouTube, was also affected.

Reuters reported it was not immediately clear how the messages appeared today. In March, hacking collective Anonymous claimed responsibility for hacking into several outlets to broadcast footage of the war from Ukraine. As the war has raged on, Russians’ access to independent and social media in the country has been strictly controlled by the Kremlin.

Despite speculation that Putin might make a major announcement during his address, none was forthcoming. He referred to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as a “special military operation,” and said it was “the inevitable, timely and only correct decision,” according to the New York Times.

Ahead of Putin’s speech, Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky released a video commemorating Victory Day, saying “We won then. We will win now too.” He referred to Putin as a madman and said, “We are fighting for our children’s freedom and therefore we will win… Very soon there will be two victory days in Ukraine.”

Russian spy boss compares U.S. to German Nazi propaganda machine

May 11 (Reuters) - A Russian spy chief on Wednesday compared the U.S. State Department to the World War Two Nazi propaganda machine constructed by Joseph Goebbels, saying Washington had launched an anti-Russia messaging campaign across social media.

Sergei Naryshkin, head of Russia's foreign intelligence agency (SVR), said the United States was encouraging the spreading of fake information on the popular Telegram messaging service in an attempt to "discredit" and "dehumanise Russia's political and military leadership in the eyes of the Russian people".

"Their actions have a lot in common with the traditions of the Third Reich's ministry of public education and propaganda and its head Joseph Goebbels," Naryshkin said in a statement published on the SVR website.

Naryshkin provided no evidence to support the claims of a U.S.-backed information campaign. Russia regularly accuses the West of funding and supporting anti-Kremlin movements and has labelled dozens of independent human rights groups and media outlets in Russia "foreign agents" over recent years.

Representatives of the U.S. State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Finnish Leaders Want NATO Membership 'Without Delay' Amid Russia's War In Ukraine

Last Updated: May 12, 2022

"As heavy fighting continues to rage in eastern Ukraine, Finland has said it intends to apply to join NATO "without delay," in a major policy shift that sees the Nordic country, which shares a long border with Russia, abandoning decades of neutrality.

"NATO membership would strengthen Finland's security. As a member of NATO, Finland would strengthen the entire defense alliance. Finland must apply for NATO membership without delay," Finnish President Sauli Niinisto and Prime Minister Sanna Marin said in a joint statement on May 12.

"We hope that the national steps still needed to make this decision will be taken rapidly within the next few days."

Ukraine's military, meanwhile, reported pushing back Russian forces in a counterattack in the east that could mark the beginning of a shift in the momentum of the war.

Ukraine's armed forces' General Staff said it had recaptured Pytomnyk, a village on the main highway north of Kharkiv, a city located just 40 kilometers from the border.

In its daily intelligence bulletin, Britain's Ministry of Defense noted that the withdrawal of Russian forces from the Kharkiv area "is a tacit recognition of Russia's inability to capture key Ukrainian cities where they expected limited resistance from the population."

In Helsinki, Niisto and Marin said in their statement that a special committee will announce a formal Finnish decision on a membership bid on May 15.

Finland, which shares a 1,340-kilometer border and a turbulent relationship with Russia, has stepped up its cooperation with NATO since Russia seized Crimea in 2014.

Finland fought two wars with the Soviet Union between 1939 and 1944, repelling an attempted invasion but losing 10 percent of its territory in the subsequent peace agreement.

Finland maintained its neutrality in the postwar period, acting at times as an intermediary between Moscow and the West.

Another Nordic country, traditionally neutral Sweden, is also expected to announce its intention to join NATO in the coming days, in a major reshaping of the European security architecture prompted by Russia's unprovoked invasion of Ukraine."

Finland's president and prime minister announced their support for joining NATO on Thursday, moving the Nordic nation which shares an 800-mile border with Russia one step closer to membership of the US-led military alliance. The Kremlin has responded by saying the move would be a threat to Russia.

The first time Russia fought Finland in 1939, the score was 167,976 dead Russians to 25,904 dead Finns. Russia learned nothing and tried again in 1941. The score was 305,000 dead Russians to 63,200 dead Finns. Putin is probably thinking he will win the third time Russia fights Finland. Or maybe Putin's true goal is to kill Russians. Who knows?

As Finland said about Russia, “They are so many, and our country is so small, where will we find room to bury them all?”
