And yes, that song (which has nothing to do with the movie) is now stuck in your head.

Hiring mercs to get your military offensive back on track when you have one of the largest militaries on the planet certainly isn't a good look.Uh I don't know that this is going to work well in the end but how telling that the Russians feel the need to do this. What an admission that they are way in over their heads.

The Philadelphia Experiment is a movie about a 1940's ship that gets caught in some kind of man-made time warp and is thrown forward in time...to (IIRC, the 1980's)Pretty sure that's just a joke but there is this sci-fi film called The Philadelphia Experiment where a jet packed air carrier gets sent back 40 years in time to WW2 and makes the japs shit themselves when they see those planes.
captured 342. i wonder if they are servicable? keep the russian markings and wreak havoc.
Updated Rusian hardware losses, the capture rate of hardware is impressive

LONDON, March 6 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law allowing funds to be seized from the bank accounts of officials if the sum of the deposits exceeded their declared incomes over three years and was shown to be illegal, state television said on Sunday. (Reporting by Reuters)
Sourcethe bank accounts of civil servants, as well as members of their families, including minor children, will be checked by the prosecutor’s office. If it turns out that the proceeds from them exceed the total income of the official and his relatives for three years by more than 10,000 rubles, a lawsuit will be filed with the court for the forced withdrawal of these funds to the budget.
SourceYou missed the key point: it’s lifetime-to-date net worth (heuristic: current bank account balances) vs. recent income.
As in, if you make X per year; and you have >3X in savings from Y>3 years of spending (a lot) less than you make and stuffing the difference under a mattress, then all your savings in excess of 3X get confiscated.
In other words, similar to people on welfare in America, public servants in Russia are now not allowed to retain assets in excess of a certain limit proportional to their income—even when that income all came directly from their (government) job.
This is analogous to a progressive wealth tax, but not the same; as a wealth tax still allows disproportionate wealth growth for the highest-income earners; while the goal of this measure is to leave you with at most exactly three years of however-much you’re currently making, and nothing more, no matter what your assets looked like before that.
The key “feature” to observe about this approach, IMHO, is that under this system people who are close to the savings cap already, are incentivized to spend every ruble they make, as any extra “left over” come audit time will be taken away. (It’s a bit like the game-theoretic consequences of yearly-limit insurance coverage, actually!)
Why? Let them do the heavy lifting. Just let them keep marching into the meat grinder.Stalled is insufficient. Pushback is required.
Um, so they're chasing down excess unexplained "wealth" of more than $90?... I guess the finance ministry and police were getting bored. Except it also applies to them...... by more than 10,000 rubles,
More than a few of the truck drivers were Uzbeks hired through regular help wanted adds that promised Russian citizenshipwhat the Russians call "recruiting" or "hiring" is probably a bit different than the way the rest of us understand it.
They are in DC to protest how they can’t cross into Canada because of Canadian vaccine restrictions. Fucking Biden not doing anything about Canadian rules. #clownvoyHey we've got a couple hundred freedom-fighting, tyrannized truckers showing up to DC to volunteer to defend Ukraine from tyranny this week!
I guess they're flying out of DC? Not sure why they drove from one end of the country to the other to do it, but maybe they were gathering donations and funds to bring with them to fight tyranny, right? That's really cool of them and all of those patriots that donated to their cause of defending freedom and protecting democracy.
At least, I've heard they are coming here to fight tyranny, so I can only imagine that they are flying to Ukraine via Warsaw, from Dulles. Right?
helps explain why fascist Russian cults of Brexiters and Trumpers had such a stranglehold over the US and the UK over the last 6 years, no?
Tons and tons of Russian money flooding the zone.
The same fascist forces that are running rampant in Russia today are the same forces metastasizing here in the US within the GQP. The tactics of misinformation are very similar, along with a lust for power at all costs. Russia is just further along in their timeline.so "taking down nazism" in Ukraine is, in Russia speak, the same kind of blatant projection that GOPers over hear like to toss towards their enemies?
