Creepy hostage videos are now appearing, where captured Ukrainians record messages that "thank" Russia for "denazification"
Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians have been processed through a series of 🇷🇺"filtration camps" in eastern Ukraine & sent to economically depressed areas in Russia as part of a program of forced removal, according to four sources familiar with the latest Western intelligence-CNN— Iuliia Mendel (@IuliiaMendel) May 27, 2022
On May 18, the heading “Denazification” appeared on the Telegram channel of one of the pro-Russian bloggers. He uploads videos every day, in which frightened and exhausted residents of the Kherson and Zaporizhia regions repent of disloyalty to the Russians. /1— Daria Kaleniuk (@dkaleniuk) May 27, 2022
Ukraine is fighting hard:
Land concessions here means allowing genocide, deportations and executions. Cos that's what Russia will do in those conceded territories.— Faulks (@realfaulks) May 28, 2022
As well as the Donbas, Markos thinks Ukraine is also attacking in Kherson to try to to cut off supplies for Crimea.
Ukrainian strategy in the Donbas has certainly been the subject of some discussion--primarily because they have taken the decision to fight for what seems like a shrinking pocket which the Russians are clearly trying to encircle. https://t.co/6hMYD1EQvF— Phillips P.

But I get it too -- we have all been distracted because little children died while police dithered in the hall.
we all thought Russia wasn't so dumb to invade in the first place,— Nathan Ruser (@Nrg8000) May 27, 2022
so we've gotta see this news through that lens.
Though surely they cant think this is a good idea. https://t.co/tdVwyvz1uj
In Uvalde, the Most Enraging Press Conference in American History - The Bulwark https://t.co/o5ImaOwG0h— Andrew Coyne 🇺🇦 (@acoyne) May 27, 2022
like, this man is standing up there claiming they didn't enter because they thought the shooter was barricaded in a room with no living children. BUT THE KIDS WERE CALLING 911.https://t.co/pRI1WGEvVv— molly conger (@socialistdogmom) May 27, 2022
Are you FUCKING KIDDING ME with this shit. https://t.co/mWSdrGaWS7— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) May 27, 2022
What would police say about a suspect who had changed his story as often as they have changed their timeline?— jelani cobb (@jelani9) May 27, 2022
The level of cowardice has no bottom:
Hard to believe this story of Uvalde police incompetence could keep getting worse.— Cathie from Canada 🇨🇦 😷🏳️🌈 (@CathieCanada) May 27, 2022
But with every tweet I read, it does. https://t.co/alY3pQIKS7
The Uvalde police department actually had a SWAT team - no one has said where they were, or why the Border Patrol SWAT team finally went in 30 minutes after the Uvalde police had told them to wait outside.
Just barricade all the doors to the police station except one. Problem solved.— Ted (@trom771) May 27, 2022
There was a demonstration today outside the NRA conference:
They went through the motions of taking the training in order to justify taxpayer expense for their SWAT team. They thought they'd never have to use it. They were complacent and lazy. Stay tuned for possible evidence of corruption, dereliction of duty, etc. in coming days.— BoloSassy&Me, BS, MEd 🇺🇦 (@HesalroadDawn) May 28, 2022
Moms telling NRA supporters to STFU brings me joy. pic.twitter.com/THA1EiiKSI— Walter Masterson (@waltermasterson) May 27, 2022
In other news, the Ontario election is coming down to the wire, and Ford was trending today! #ThugFord
I just received an email from my kids' principal stating any students that participate in a planned walkout to protest gun violence in schools will receive an unexcused absence. Yeah, let's make it the kids' fault & not the adults entrusted with their safety.— Leonard (@Le202nard) May 27, 2022
My kids can walk.
And in other news, here's a funny comment:
I asked Ontario PC leader Doug Ford if he approved of warning/ticketing/trespassing/arresting peaceful dissenters as happened Thursday.— 𝚂𝚎á𝚗 𝙾’𝚂𝚑𝚎𝚊 Global News (@ConsumerSOS) May 28, 2022
I asked twice. Here are his replies, not answers. #onpoli pic.twitter.com/y8lZLi7nBo
A Ray Liotta anecdote, from one of my favorite movies: <
Owning one of these gets you accused of being an elitist who’s imposing his lifestyle on other people. pic.twitter.com/o0vohsq1tq— Doug Gordon (@BrooklynSpoke) May 26, 2022
Devastated to hear the news of Ray Liotta’s passing. While he leaves an incredible legacy, he’ll always be “Shoeless Joe Jackson” in my heart. What happened that moment in the film was real. God gave us that stunt. Now God has Ray. pic.twitter.com/JQmk1PsuSK— Kevin Costner & MW (@modernwest) May 26, 2022
