@Soldier35 Do you have any footage of explosions from Russian soldiers using a TOS-1 Thermobaric system on their own colleagues?

Okay I know the humour is dark asf…buuuttt… 😈😂

But did anybody else chuckle at the Ukranian letter supporting the Russian actions against their own?

Specifically the part about the use of flamethrowers, and the tradition of cooking kabobs in May?

Finland just signed a security pact with the UK... I assume this is an 'appetizer' to full NATO membership:

Finnish President tells Russia 'You caused this' as he signs security pact with UK​

The President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö has told a news conference in Helsinki that Russia's invasion of Ukraine "changed the picture" on the country's security. In a message to Russia he said, "you caused this - look at the mirror". Mr Niinistö was speaking after he signed a joined security pact with Boris Johnson.

... Bold, coloured: the interesting part is that the regular AFU is not mentioned.
Hypothesis #1: Unregimented, irregular forces are more likely to record and publish their (occasionally illicit) activities.
Hypothesis #2: Unregimented, irregular forces are more likely to engage in behaviour that flouts the laws of armed conflict ...
Well, to be entirely fair to the Territorials, UKR mil intelligence shared a memo to soldiers early on (Google Translation attached) about 3 weeks or so into the latest invasion reminding troops that killing prisoners was not on, so someone in system was thinking, "ya know, this (could get/is getting) pretty ugly".

Or it could also be a case of this ....

Be thankful it was just that. Digging cable trenches in Poland, we may or may not have caused a UXO scare when we hit an old German CBRN kit with an iodine pack. Looks a bit like VX after 70 years. Ruffled a few feathers....
