It's Russia, mr. Humbert, here is no short or straight ways.

Quote from: humbert on November 22, 2022, 05:53 AMDo you have access to news agencies in the UK. If so, check out https://metro.co.uk/2022/09/16/ukrainians-giving-russians-secret-surrender-cards-to-help-them-escape-17388513. This article is dated 06/09/2022. If you can't access it then try Google Images and type "Ukrainian surrender card". There are surrender instructions and even a phone number to call. Ukrainians are mad only at pro-Putin militants who pillage their country and harm their people. They have compassion for Russian soldiers who are against the war and want to give themselves up. They are seen as victims, not perpetrators. Naturally doing this will not be easy and is the very last resort. Try to hide or get out so you won't even need to try to call Zelensky.
Thank you very much. That may be useful thing. By the way, it's very interesting way how they "restrict" information now. Sites for news agencies from UK are totally not restricted if you get there directly. But in russian news we only hearing about how LGBTQ+ humiliating europeans and how many times Biden lost consciousness at last briefing. Looks like this is on what modern propaganda basing - common people can not imagine something which is not in news. ;D

Propagandists since the beginnning of time have used the same scheme as Joseph Goebbels -- propaganda is simple so the masses can understand it, and with endless repetition. If anything, he proved that any lie when repeated again and again will be believed. This is why Hitler and Putin both made it impossible to listen to the foreign press - to make sure nobody knows the truth and/or questions their propaganda. This is so effective that even Hitler and Stalin actually believed their own propaganda! Naturally the news items being reported by Putin (Biden & LGBQT) are total lies. Putin is probably gay himself and hates that about him. Similarly, there's every reason to believe Hitler was ¼ Jewish.

Were you able to see a picture of the surrender card on Google Images? If not, let me know and I will post a copy here on the forum so you can see what Putin doesn't want you to know.

Please ensure you have a way to contact people without your own phone as well a little paper of most important friends/family numbers.
Be aware that they might be searching your phone and papers, so if you have the 'give up' number they might get on bad terms with you. For your own safety, please practice the number in before hand so you do not need a paper or your own phone for it. If you plan on needing to use it.


The last few days I've been texting with a penpal in China, and even if she has a lot of outside news from screenshots etc she does not have the full picture due to network/news blockages.

As I understand it, she is under the influence that Ukraine attacked russia, provoking the war. She was very surprised when I told the story that last weekend I had ukrainians in Ireland come up to me and ask for help. This was as I was doing my laundry, because they hadnt found a place to live and wanted help searching. She didnt think that much people at all had fled Ukraine.


Even though there is less ukrainians now in my area, theres still a good chunk of them. Im assuming they're starting to find places to stay or live rather than being accomodated in hotels and other short term accomodations.
My experience so far has been very good with the ukrainians here. Especially if you compare it to immigrants/refugees from other places of the world.
Even though most of them want to go back, they are not intentionally trashing the place.

They just take all and any phones and papers from enlisted. So if you are enlisted you have no good way to contact anybody. Only way to get communication is if your relatives could give you a phone after you departured to the training camp (if the camp is near your city and guards are bribed). So best way to keep any info is your memory.

AFAIK, in China people aren't care about anything going around the China. Because there is alot of them, and they have enough of their internal problems.

From the information we have a critical reason Putin's army is doing so badly is rampant corruption at ever level. If Putin treats people like dirt, pays them next to nothing, and shows no respect at all, what else can you expect? HE is the one responsible for this problem, not the people of Russia. They are just victims.

Today, I'm going to give you a brief overview of the stock markets.


A little crash took place yesterday as U.S. stock indexes closed sharply lower on Thursday, with each of the major averages suffering their biggest daily percentage drop in weeks, as fears intensified that the Federal Reserve's battle against inflation using aggressive interest rate hikes could lead to a recession.

The U.S. central bank hiked rates by 50 basis points (bps) on Wednesday as was widely expected, downsizing from the consecutive 75 bps hikes at its prior four meetings, but Fed Chair Jerome Powell warned recent signs of inflation were not enough to convince Fed the battle against rising prices had been won.

The Fed projected continued rate hikes to above 5% in 2023, a level not seen since a steep economic downturn in 2007.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.25%, to 33,202 ; the S&P 500 lost 2.49%, to 3,895 ; and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 3.23%, to 10,810

In France, the CAC 40 declined 3.09% to 6520 to hit a new 1-month low, while the SBF 120 index lost 2.95%. Note that I'm expecting the cac 40 to go below 6400 before investing again in the market. Today, the cac 40 is declining 1.20% to 6440 points.

The Atos share keeps falling. I talked about it a few months ago.
I still advise against buying it.
