I’m still trying to wrap my head around “sitation”.

Probably just a typo.

Get that. A deal's a deal is all I'm saying.

When deals are ripped up future deals lose their credibility.

My boss has a friend, who is one of those freelance reporters that run to the front lines.  She apparently got on a plane this weekend to head to Kiev and is there right now.  Those people are fucking crazy.

I saw some of them were getting arrested just for being at the protest last night even though they were just covering it for news

I read where over 1,700 people were arrested in Russia.  Russians have been warned by authorities any negative comments about Putin's invasion of Ukraine would be treated as treason.

Those people deserve credit for putting their necks on the line.

I've had Sky News on pretty much non stop. I'm always thinking, why the fuck are you STILL there? Bombs going off in the background. 

I have a friend born in Kyiv, raised in NYC. His family got the hell out, went to Germany.

I think some of the reporters that go to these places are brave.  And some are adrenaline junkies.  They're part of the landscape and they do bring the reality of war to the rest of us - at least in some small way.

I've seen this in multiple news outlets.  Bad ass m-fers if true.

Looks like they are fighting pretty hard.  I hope they give them hell.

These eastern European guys can be some hard dudes.  I wouldn't want to go into Kiev in attack mode.  It will be important to watch what happens on the home front when bodies start coming back to Moscow.

Have you heard of this "ghost of Kyiv"?  Supposedly a Ukrainian pilot who has shot down 6 Russian fighters in air to air combat.  It would be cool if true.  A russian jet was shot down last night over the capital.

I saw mention of it on twitter yesterday, but haven't seen confirmation of it.

A lot of this feels like propaganda, in that the West has decided they're going to make Putin look bad by pretending the invasion is going badly.

The stories of heroism are probably true, but it's been like two days and they're almost at the capital.  This is like Akron vs. OSU, and the announcers praising how Akron is hanging with them just 30 seconds into the game.

This immediately starts WWIII, does it not? Either way, he sounds like a teenage girl.
