  • Rumors abound that there is a pre-recorded message from Putin that will play at 8am Moscow time declaring a (not quite) total lockdown and mobilization of the country.

    There is also a Twitter rumor that all military aged men 18 to 65 will be prevented from leaving the country, and all occupied territories.
    “Demolish the bridges behind you… then there is no choice but to build again.”

        They just might go Ceausescu on Poots' popka by the time this over. Then again, their billionaire class will never allow it. If he's deposed, he'll probably get the Khrushchev sendoff - retire to your Black Sea dacha with a pension and like it, or else.

          • Reports are that Russian Central Bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina has submitted her resignation.

            She had asked to resign previously but was talked into staying. Her condition was no general mobilization, as that would completely tank the economy.

            Overnight markets are going to be interesting.

            • This piece argues Putin quite literally cannot be replaced, as he has successfully burned anyone who was a would-be challenger. But, simultaneously, the reality that he is failing in health and power and respect is overtaking his regime. So, instead of a coup, Russia is headed for a power vacuum.

              • Erdoğan has demanded that Putin return Crimea to "its rightful owners."

                Modi and Xi have also expressed their concerns over Russia's "advances" and have asked Putin to knock it off.

                  • Jeeeeeezus. If you had asked me what happens by Oct 1 back in February of this year, I'd have never predicted this. Maybe could have predicted a slow or even stalled invasion, but not in a millions years would I have guess general mobilization and complete breakdown in the power structure after Ukraine kicks Russia's collective ***.

                      In the month leading up to Russia’s invasion there was a ton of activity near me and I always suspected Russia was a bit of a paper tiger. I would love to know how much equipment they have left.

                            • Herbie pushed Tony from the Boys' Club roof
                              Tony thought that his rage was just some goof
                              But Herbie sure gave Tony some, some b-tchen proof
                              Hey, Herbie said, Tony, can you fly?
                              But Tony couldn't fly, Tony died

                                In #Moscow, #Russia, there is a #protest rally taking place tonight against the mobilisation, announced by Putin earlier today. Protesters chant “No to War!”.
                                Im sure its fine though...
