Stupid about AGW!!
Russia is reportedly looking to involve minors in referendums in occupied parts of Ukraine so that it can hide a "catastrophic" lack of votes, according to the Ukrainian government's security agency.

The Security Service of Ukraine (SSU) wrote in a new report Thursday that it had intercepted documents detailing plans to have minors participate in the "fake" Russian referendums in the partially Russian-occupied eastern Donetsk region.

"Thus, the aggressors hope to expand the 'electoral base' of support for the Kremlin's project to join part of eastern Ukraine to the aggressor country," the report said, citing the alleged intercepted documents.

The documents show that leaders of the Russian-occupation administration in Donetsk plan to have local residents aged 13 to 17 vote in the referendum, the SSU said. It added that parents or guardians will have to escort their children to go vote.

Russia's economy will 'die by winter' because of military mobilization
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/worl...-military-mobilization/ar-AA12gpGU?li=BBnb7Kz

Russian economist Vladislav Inozemtsev, the director of Moscow-based think tank the Center for Research on Post-Industrial Studies, is warning that Putin’s mobilization will have “truly catastrophic consequences,” including the death of the Russian economy and the downfall of Putin’s regime.

“The Russian economy is going to die by winter, I wrote in early March. Now I think I was right. The mobilization announced on Sept. 21 was a milestone that really divided Russian history into ‘before’ and ‘after’—an event that began the final countdown of Putin’s era,” the economist wrote on Sunday for Russian publication The Insider.

I truly hope he doesn't throw a nuclear hail mary.
