I'll post what's happening as it comes through for purposes of posterity. Doubt the veracity of what is posted here. Having lived through the Iraq war, I am sure that the vast majority of what gets reported will turn out to be either misinformation or outright ********. Posting because a lot of non-Australia members will be asleep, now. I'll report as much as I can.

So far the g****vine is:

Russia has indeed embarked on a full scale invasion of Ukraine. Air attacks, and ground forces. There has been at least one missile strike, there have been front-line Ukranian casualities ( have seen video, cannot post it here, too graphic).

Footage of an airstrike hitting Lutsk:

Belarus has thrown in with Russia/is issuing support.
Reports of Ukrainian air defence having shot down multiple Russian planes, either drones or fighters. 


Some other info:

UK Government has released a statement. It would appear no help is coming for the Ukrainians from the UK.

Unbelievable.

Ok, so from what I gather, if there is an upside to this debacle it's that Russia has been brutally effective at destroying military bases and airports, as well as weapons caches, relays etc and the loss of civilian life at least has been very low. It's not much, but it's something. Basically they're lightning striking resistance points across the entire country. This has obviously been deliberated on and prepped for for a long time, has been in the pipeline for a long time.

I kind of think Ukraine knew this was inevitable, and resistance has not been extensive. Reports are that many outposts of Ukrainian resistance have laid down their arms. Most military airbases have been destroyed already. It seems like the whole thing was foregone conclusion, mostly, and the Ukranian brass knew it. Ukraine is a small place. The entire nation is slightly smaller than Texas.

I think this will mercifully be over very soon.
