Don't be dismayed because this is a twitter link. This is actually a very good breakdown from Tom Warner as to what is happening to the invader's supply lines.

These anti-draft protests in Dagestan and Yakutsk are old news now, but it begs the question, why aren't there more protests given how unpopular the draft has been. We will look at a possible answer in the next post.

This article attempts to explain how Russia is keeping their war machine operative, despite the unpopularity of the draft.

This article explains how the aid that the US is providing to Ukraine is not as expensive as it may sound, and in the cold logistics of war, it is money not going to waste.
Helping people in dire need is reason enough for many, but for others, this article provides another way to see things.

Russia fired more than 20 cruise missiles at targets in Ukraine on Saturday, killing at least one person in the capital Kyiv and injuring more than a dozen in what one official described as “terror on New Year’s Eve.”

Moscow’s second major missile attack in three days badly damaged a hotel south of Kyiv’s center and a residential building in another district. A Japanese journalist was among the wounded and taken to hospital, Mayor Vitali Klitschko said.

Russia has been attacking vital infrastructure in Ukraine since October with barrages of missiles and drones, causing sweeping power blackouts and other outages for millions of people as the cold weather bites.

“This time, Russia’s mass missile attack is deliberately targeting residential areas, not even our energy infrastructure,” Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba wrote on Twitter after the attack.

“War criminal Putin ‘celebrates’ New Year by killing people,” Kuleba said, calling for Russia to be deprived of its permanent seat on the United Nations Security Council.

Lithuanians on Feb. 3 donated over 1 million euros during just one hour to purchase multifunctional tactical radars for Ukraine as part of the Radarom! fundraising campaign, Andrius Tapinas, the founder of Lithuania's Laisves TV, said on Facebook.

He said that the total amount donated this morning to Radarom! would be doubled by the Tesonet business accelerator to over 2 million euros.

The Radarom! campaign started Jan. 30, and since then more than 5 million euros have been donated to supply Ukraine with tactical radars.

Tapinas said that he expected the total amount of the donations to double by Feb. 24, the anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine.


Let’s Radar – Lithuania launches biggest action to support Ukraine

A year ago, we were all shaken by the news that a war broke out in Ukraine. A war that not only has affected Ukrainians, but also changed our lives in entire Europe. It has also been a time of extraordinary unity, and as we approach the anniversary of the war, LRT, along with Blue/Yellow, Laisvės TV, 1K Fondas and Stiprūs Kartu, are launching the biggest action in support of Ukraine – Let’s Radar/Radarom!

The campaign, which runs from January 30 to February 24, is inviting donations for one cause – air surveillance radars to protect Ukraine’s skies and to react faster and more accurately to enemy attacks.

“Radars are there to monitor the airspace. These new radars from Israel are unique in that they can detect all types, sizes, and speeds of objects moving in the sky. Conventional radars are not designed to track small and low-flying objects. Russian missiles and drones pose a lethal threat to Ukrainian defenders and civilians. These radars will go a long way in preventing Russian death squads,” says John Ohman, founder of Blue/Yellow.

Let’s Radar! campaign expects to raise 5 million euros to buy radars for Ukraine. The first advanced surveillance equipment is expected to reach Ukraine at the start of the campaign.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the biggest campaign for war-torn Ukraine can do so by calling 1482 for a donation of 5 euros. You can also make a donation by visiting the special website radarom.lt, where you can make a bank transfer.

“We have already proven that we can not only welcome those in need, but even help them to purchase security equipment such as the Bayraktar military drone. So we invite you to unite once again and help Ukraine protect itself from the enemy’s infrastructure-destroying attacks and to win the fight for our all freedom,” says Andrius Tapinas, founder of the online television channel Laisvės TV, and host of the programme.

“Let’s make this year the year the war in Ukraine ends. Every donation is important. One, two, three, four euros – everything works for the common victory. Every civilian counts. Every soldier matters. Every euro matters. We are doing our best,” says Oleg Šurajev, the head of the 1K Fondas.

Business organisations are invited to actively join the campaign, as some already have. LRT and the organisations providing aid to Ukraine are grateful for the support of businesses, and a special page on radarom.lt lists all the contributors.

“A nation at war does not get tired, so why should we? As President Volodymyr Zelensky said to me, if you feel tired, think of the soldiers at the front and the innocent Ukrainians who are dying. This initiative will help protect the Ukrainian people from Russian terror, so everyone’s contribution is very important. I know that the people of our country will continue their mission of aid until victory. I particularly invite the Lithuanian business community to join in and show that freedom is the most important value. Let’s help freedom prevail,” says Edmundas Jakilaitis, the initiator of the campaign Stiprūs Kartu.

Everyone is invited to join Let’s Radar/Radarom! by donating and spreading the message. For more information and to download materials prepared especially for the campaign, which can be used on social networks, please visit radarom.lt.

The campaign will run for four weeks and will culminate in a special broadcast on LRT TV, LRT RADIO and LRT.lt throughout February 24. In the evening, LRT TV will broadcast a final concert to support Ukraine.

Donations can be made by calling 1482 (EUR 5) and on radarom.lt.
