Just finished watching the Russia day parade live...& Putin's speech was full of what we would expect...basically blaming NATO for aggression...& that Ukraine was going to have nukes, & that Russia is returning its historic lands into the motherfold....

Nothing new....no mentions of declaring war, (which would mean admitting defeat as the "special operation" was supposed to be a blitzkrieg)..

See how much longer before his military overthrow him or he dies "accidently"......

Read that...as many thought in the days after.....the "sinking" of the "Makarov" was not confirmed.....

However it doesn't rule out that it could have been hit & had an on board fire...just they managed to control it & sail the vessel back home as that article appears to say:-

"But it’s worth noting where Sutton found Admiral Makarov on or before Monday: sailing near Sevastopol in the Russian-occupied Crimean Peninsula. In other words, close to home."

As I've said many times before..think it won't affect you...??

Ukraine and the EU have discussed taking "immediate measures to unblock Ukraine's ports for grain exports" after Russia's blockade of Ukraine's Black Sea ports has forced its grain exporters to look for alternatives to move their cargo.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he discussed preventing "a global food crisis triggered by Russia's aggressive actions" during talks with European Council President Charles Michel on his visit to Odesa on Monday.

Before the war, Ukraine exported 4.5 million tonnes of agricultural produce per month through its ports -12% of the world's wheat, 15% of its corn and 50% of its sunflower oil, the AFP news agency reports.


But the invasion has crippled its export capacity, with Russia destroying transportation infrastructure and blockading Odesa, the main port for grain exports.

"In the port of Odesa, I saw silos full of grain, wheat and corn ready for export," Michel said.

"This badly needed food is stranded because of the Russian war and blockade of Black Sea ports causing dramatic consequences for vulnerable countries. We need a global response," he added.""



Those three basic food items are used in many other products....
