Ukraine war: Russian soldier Vadim Shishimarin jailed for life over war crime
"Captured soldier Sgt Vadim Shishimarin was convicted of killing Oleksandr Shelipov, 62, in the north-eastern village of Chupakhivka on 28 February."

He admitted shooting Mr Shelipov but said he had been acting on orders and asked forgiveness of the man's widow.


Ukraine destruction: how the Guardian documented Russia’s use of illegal weapons

Cluster bombs, fléchettes and unguided missiles on residential areas: as prosecutors investigate alleged Russian war crimes in Ukraine, our reporters reveal the evidence they discovered on the ground

At about midnight on 1 March 2022, a Russian air force jet dropped a series of 250kg Soviet-era explosives over Borodyanka, north of Kyiv. They were powerful FAB-250 bombs, designed to hit military targets such as enemy fortifications and bunkers. There were no such structures, however, in this quiet town of 13,000 people.

Let's stick to discussing bunker busters, not breaking balls.

Now back to Russia.

It seems that evil Senator Mitch McConnell and some of his GOP senator buddies went secretly to Ukraine. If you look at the photo of McConnell with Zelenski, Prez Z doesn't look happy at all. He knows who let Trump get away with slowing down cash to Ukraine while Trump was in office playing his political games. And responsible for letting Russia think they could get away with this war on Ukraine. He was polite and professional, but very few smiles. CNN coverage has a video from the visit.

One wonders how or if the US is backing the process of trying war criminals if we're huge Ukraine supporters but not involved in the International Criminal Court. In theory, the ICC tries cases that aren't investigated and tried by their own countries. So the Ukraine trying Russians isn't an ICC thing but the Russians ignoring their generals and soldiers committing war crimes would be. I guess the reason the US didn't join is because 1) they intend to investigate their own war crimes (unless someone like Trump thinks it's all good) and 2) this way they can't be tried by the ICC. Russia isn't in it either.

Troubled times ahead on the legal front.

NATO, to be clear, is a defensive organisation. On the whole, it consists of western democracies who banded together to defend themselves against potential Soviet threats. NATO has failed to hold to its commitment to Russia that they would not expand towards the Russian border. However, it's hard to see how we could say no to countries close to Russia who feel vulnerable who ask to join, and the current situation, in my view, has exonerated us from that broken promise. In addition, even now the forces we've put close to the Russian border don't add up to a threat to invade or attack Russia. As a leftie I'm not a fan of NATO. But, as long as it keeps to its commitment to attack only if attacked first, I think I can live with it.

I took a couple of adjectives out of my remarks before posting. Thick is probably a polite version of my thoughts.

The trial starting now is of a 21-year-old who murdered a 62-year-old civilian.
It is alleged Shysimarin, a sergeant, had been fighting in the Sumy region in north-east Ukraine when he killed a civilian on 28 February in the village of Chupakhivka.

He is accused of shooting at a civilian car after his convoy of military vehicles had come under attack from Ukrainian forces. He then drove the car away with four other soldiers as he sought to flee Ukrainian fighters.

Shysimarin shot dead the unarmed man, who was on a bicycle and talking on his phone, after being ordered “to kill a civilian so he would not report them to Ukrainian defenders”, according to prosecutors. . . . Two other cases are likely to be heard in court within days including an in absentia trial of Mikhail Romanov, a Russian soldier accused of rape and murder. He is accused of breaking into a house in March in a village in the Brovarsky region near Kyiv, murdering a man and then repeatedly raping his wife while “threatening her and her underage child with violence and weapons”.

No surprise that Putin's generals seem to have a shopping list and the Donbas isn't the only property on it.

What is Transnistria, and will Russia advance toward Moldova?
Two months into the invasion of Ukraine, a Russian military commander suggested Friday that Moscow aims to establish a corridor through southern Ukraine to Transnistria, a breakaway republic in eastern Moldova.

“Control over the south of Ukraine is another way out to Transnistria, where there are also facts of oppression of the Russian-speaking population,” said Rustam Minnekaev, acting commander of Russia’s Central Military District, according to the Russian news agency Interfax.

It was unclear whether Minnekaev’s statement reflects the official Kremlin line. The comment surprised some analysts, since Russia tried and failed in the early weeks of the war to advance on southwestern Ukraine — the area it would need to secure to reach the border with Transnistria.

Further down they give the history of the place
The small Eastern European country of Moldova, sandwiched between Ukraine and Romania, used to be part of Romania. It was integrated into the Soviet Union in 1940. The collapse of the Soviet Union five decades later triggered a civil conflict in the early 1990s between the newly independent Republic of Moldova and separatists in Transnistria, who wanted to maintain Soviet ties.

Transnistria, a thin strip of land that runs along Moldova’s border with Ukraine, has a population of about 500,000. No country — not even Russia — recognizes the territory as independent. But it functions as a separate nation, where Moldovan authorities admit they have no control.

Russian troops have been stationed in the area for decades as “peacekeepers,” with an estimated 1,500 there today. Moldovans make fun of the sliver of land as a backwater stuck in the Soviet era, where Lenin statues remain, international bank cards don’t work and a monopolistic company, Sheriff, controls virtually everything.

Moldova is neutral and has said it isn't interested in joining the EU.

You can't accuse any group of having too loud a voice. We could criticise those in the middle for having too quiet a voice. They often like to refer to themselves as "the silent majority," a term which is supposed to make us think that they are sage, contemplative, reflective, measured pipe-smokers. "I see all but I say nothing." Unfortunately, they are all too often "silent" because they haven't been following/don't give a damn/don't wish to get into an argument that they know they are not equipped to sustain. The dreaded man-in-the-street vox pops on the telly news can be a real giveaway. They often make me shudder. The people on the far right and on the left are often the most politically-committed. You can damn them for their one-sided views, their bigotry or racism writ loud, but you can't damn them for having too loud a voice. Instead, it's down to you to speak up. As ever, it's best to try to be informed. Nothing truer that the adage that it's better to be thought a fool that to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Declaring victory is tantamount to declaring peace since every peace slogan I have ever heard has failed. As a kid it was 'peace through understanding'. That one didn't get off the ground since it was obvious there is no understanding whatsoever. At most another culture or nation is funny or crazy. Other peace slogans were even more ridiculus; ban the bomb, atoms for peace, hands across America and of course peace on earth good will to men. That last one must really piss off women.

Probably the best reconcilliation speech was the Gettysburg address but that teaching was ignored at the end of the following WW I which created WW II. WW III won't have any reconcilliation speechs, just mutated mountain and cave folks.

I follow a number of good journalists on Twitter, as well as reading online papers from the US, the UK, DV, Al Jazeera English, etc. One can piece together what is happening in Russia, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Burma, and other places.

It seems English fighters have been captured by the Russians and are requesting to be traded. At least one of them seems to have landed there before the Russian invasion:
“Aiden is a serving member of the Ukrainian armed forces, and as such is a prisoner of war and must be treated with humanity” according “to the terms of the Geneva Convention”, she was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

“It already looks like he has been beaten up. It is time now for the British government to get involved and help secure Aiden’s release because he is still a British citizen.”

Aslin joined the military in 2018 after relocating to Ukraine to start a family with his fiancée. He previously fought alongside the Kurds against the ISIL (ISIS) group in Syria, the newspaper said.

That from the Al Jazeera source named above.
