Ukraine: WAR Huh - What Is It Good For Absorootly Nothing


Virginia, USA

We do not have 100,000 military casualties, it is impossible – Ukraine's Secretary of National Security ( If I put on my investigator hat, then I have several questions - "I declare with full responsibility that we do not have 100,000 casualties among the military. It is impossible. This is confidential information during wartime, but 100,000 [killed – ed.] is completely untrue." Why is it impossible? – If it is “completely untrue” , then what part is “partially untrue”?

Also real news articles grounded in (mostly) true is very different from straight up bullshit via twitter. If you think you can gleam any sort of depth or nuance from a story in 280 characters or less you're kidding yourself. I appreciate the news articles links. I don't read have time to read through all of them but I read enough stories to keep up on what's actually going in Ukraine, or at the very least to have a better understanding.

One huge difference isn't news vs twitter but information (usually as balanced as I can get it) vs intentional bullshit.
