Good to see you back safely.

Hello all. I've been in England for a few days. Unfortunately because of a funeral. It seems to be the only time I see the larger family now. It was pleasant to be with my brother and his lot though. They're slowly working on building their own little rural idyll. I gave a hand for a couple of hours.

Really interesting video. Didn't realize it wasn't the largest, but then again, it's the one we hear about. Paddington Bear gets into the occasional tv ad here.

A Station Called Paddington

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on March 14, 2022 at 12:59pm

Davy I think you underestimate the influence of the AZOV Battalion I've been reading that some of the overseas volunteers who are White Supremacists have been signing up with the AZOV Battalion. But I want to state one last time before I stop talking about the subject I want Ukraine to kick the Russians out I have no equivocation on that subject, I just don't like people here in London telling me what I can or can't say or run the risk of being accused of being a Putin apologist. You and your family stay safe 

Comment was by Davy on March 14, 2022 at 12:15pm

Stephen  if I got up your nose I apologise.
As for his history it is a bit  off for the Ukrainians were fighting  both the Red Army and the Fascists. Yes! There were Ukrainians in the Red army there were others also in the German army alongside Russians.
The other thing is about the Revolution of dignity there is solid evidence that it was the police that shot the protesters and yes the protesters also shoot back at the police.
What gets me so you had a right wing battalion that formed when Muscovy invaded the first time by proxies forces. The majority of its members were not nationalist from my understanding; they formed up to reclaim their towns the proxies had occupied and were doing well till the Russians step in took over then it drew into a stalemate of sorts.
Why is everyone equates a minor section of the society which also happens to be a battalion  equating their views with the rest of the  general population.
For that is what I am perceiving when some one mentions anything about Ukraine the very first thing the push is the AZOV battalion and says that all Ukrainians are Nazi's.
I wonder how many men in uniform in the British and American armies at all rank levels hold the same views as the Nazi's? I dare say that there is a lot more of them than there is in the Ukrainian army.
So I just wish that people would stop dragging up the AZOV battalion all the flamin' time to justify their stance on Ukraine.
Ukraine did not have its roots in the twentieth century as its roots began in the Founding of Kyivan Rus, through the Zaporozhian Sich (Cossack) and have been fighting for their homeland and Identity since Catherine the II destroyed the Sich.
It is what unites all Ukrainians when their homeland , their identity and their freedom when they threatened as Herr Putler found out to his own cost for he did not understand them as they do not have the same mindset as Russians. 
They retain more the mindset they had when they were the Sich where they pledge allegiance to their Hetman due to the rights they were given as freemen.

Davy if you watched the video you would see that it agreed with you. I'm not falling for the Putin narrative nor am I overestimating the right-wing influence in Ukraine. But the very fact that the Azov Battalion exists and has been incorporated into defence forces is worrying. As for you asking me to explain these facts, I can't because I agree with them and if you have watched the video I uploaded you will see they agree with you as well. I'm just tired of people accusing me and people like me of being Putin stooges and falling for his narrative.

Chris. B
I find write from what I know comes easy and some times my words just flow easily like a mountain brook so  the hardest part is the editing to ensure that what my words are saying what I want to express so the reader can better understand my thoughts on the subject under discussion.
I write also to stop me from becoming a quiver psychotic lump of jelly and depressed seeing that I have no workshop or machine tools to exercise both my hand and mind as I create articles or maintain and repair my tools and household appliances. 

At the moment owing to our present situation here  just trying to balance out the narrative by showing the Ukraine side of the narrative; as well as correcting fallacies about Ukraine. 
I quite aware of the Ukrainian history and always finding out little unknown facts of it from all the different sources that are telling the East Europeans history.

Makes me wonder how you can concentrate on writing at all! Wishing you all the best. Keep us informed, if you can.

Comment was by Davy on March 14, 2022 at 1:51am

I apologise should my last comment seems peevish but having the banshee wail of sirens going for 8 to 9 hours non-stop is not at all pleasant for have in the back of you mind are we going to be hit with a missile or bombs. Due to the Muscovites indiscriminately targeting civilian areas that have no military value at all. Luckily so far they are missiles head towards Kyiv or planes flying in the area on either offensive or defensive deployment.
Sergei Lavrov has openly admitted that the Mariupol Children's Hospital bombing was deliberate and intentional.
Since the missile attack 15 Km from the Polish border  just a little west of Lviv  I am just wondering when one or two missiles may actually land on Polish soil for their missiles more so their cruise missiles are not overly accurate. Or it may be intentional to get a reaction from Poland or NATO.
