Will media Russian people one day asking for freedom need to to a far off planet, join a Private Immigration Spaceflight and move to the Moon or Mars to broadcast free radio?  Roskomnadzor ordered media organizations to delete stories that describe the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine as an "assault", "invasion", or a "declaration of war". People have been critical of actions of Biden or Trump or censorship in Europe but Speech and Media in Russia might now rank as the worst in the world, Russia now ranks with some of the absolute worst out of 180 countries on Planet Earth. Roskomnadzor blocked access to several foreign media outlets, including BBC News Russian, Voice of America, RFE/RL, Deutsche Welle and Meduza, as well as Facebook and Twitter,  website Dailymotion was blocked, a number of Bitcoin related websites were blocked (including bitcoin.org) because "it contributes to shadow economy".

Russian Media Warns Anyone Who Protests Will Be Drafted Into the Military

Russian 2022 Laws Establishing War Censorship and Prohibiting Anti-War Statements and Calls for Sanctions is a group of federal laws promulgated by the Russian government during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The adoption of these laws caused the mass exodus of foreign media from Russia and the termination of the activity of independent Russian media. Hugh Williamson, Europe and Central Asia director at Human Rights Watch, said that " These new laws are part of Russia’s ruthless effort to suppress all dissent and make sure the [Russian] population does not have access to any information that contradicts the Kremlin’s narrative about the invasion of Ukraine."

Marina Vladimirovna Ovsyannikova interrupted a broadcast of Vremya to protest against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which made international news headlines. She was arrested, held without access to her lawyer, fined 30,000 rubles (150 dollars at the time), and later released

Vladimir Danchev grabbed by men in white coats and sent off to the mental hospital?

According to Noam Chomsky and other commentators, Danchev's principal transgression was to embarrass the Soviet government by describing the presence of Soviet forces in Afghanistan as an "invasion". According to official ideology, the USSR had not invaded Afghanistan in December 1979. It was defending the Afghan people against "terrorists funded by foreign sources": this was how the USSR referred to the Mujahedin and their backers in the CIA and Saudi Arabia.

Danchev was praised at the time in the U.S. media as a hero of free speech and free thought and in 1991 the International Federation of Human Rights inaugurated an award for journalists in his name.

Liz Wahl was a correspondent for the Russian government-sponsored RT television network from 2011 to 2014 but left the network following a harshly critical on-air resignation that went viral.

Russian authorities began investigating Pugacheva for "discrediting" the military

Alexei Gorinov, a member of the Krasnoselsky district council in Moscow, was sentenced to seven years in prison after making anti-war comments at a council meeting in March, including stating that "our country has aggressively attacked a neighbouring country" and "kids in Ukraine are dying each day". Lawyer Pavel Chikov said that this was the first jail term under the new Russian 2022 war censorship laws.

Re: Putin's Russian expanding to be the old USSR

Is it possible to “Totally” Write in a Sarcastic Voice? How “Definitely” can you tell if someone is being sarcasm in writing?

'Chechens Release Very Real and Very Dangerous Combat Footage'

https://funker530.com/video/chechens-re … t-footage/

Chechen fighters with the first TikTok Brigade release stunning combat footage showing fearless Chechen Soldiers engaging in close combat with what is definitely a house occupied by dozens of Ukrainian Soldiers.

Well, it looks like the boys are back on TikTok. I can't even with this one. Imagine coming back to your house after the war is over, and everything is destroyed because these guys wanted to make a cool video for TikTok.

The Russian people  collapsing internally, mass mobilization, the economic downturn.

Russian Draftees Fight Police Forcing Them Onto Buses
https://funker530.com/video/russian-dra … nto-buses/

Footage shows a fight breaking out between Russian men, now forced into military service, and police attempting to round them up and place them on a bus. Some of the draftees challenged the police to get on the bus with them and go fight in Ukraine.

Russia's recent mobilization order is expected to inflate their fighting force by activating as many as 1.2 million men, some of who are older than 60. Witness footage has even shown enlistment officers handing out draft orders to random people on the street. The chaotic mobilization has caused an attempted mass exodus of military-aged men trying to leave Russia.

The US equipment has gotten some real-life testing for sure.

I normally don't share any 'music' type war videos I normally think it disrespectful to add music to a war video or I often think it has an element of propaganda but I thought this vid was worth a share, ' Battle of Mariupol' the brutality of the war is worth remembering and part of record. Siege of Mariupol was a siege in Ukraine during the Russian invasion of Ukraine, when forces from Russia and the separatist Donetsk People's Republic engaged Ukrainian forces in the city of Mariupol. The siege, which was part of the Russian eastern Ukraine offensive and southern Ukraine offensive, the Red Cross described the situation as "apocalyptic".

Russian claims that they can invade NATO countries that rest against their borders is crap.
