A Russian drone flew over Poland before entering Ukrainian air space where it was shot down, Ukraine’s military has claimed.
The Ukrainian air force command said in a statement last night that the drone flew into NATO airspace, accusing Moscow of a “provocation”.
The drone first circled over the site in Yavoriv, western Ukraine, which was hit by a salvo of cruise missiles on Sunday (2022-03-13), in an apparent attempt to assess the result, the officials said. It then delved into Poland before returning to Ukrainian air space, where it was shot down by Ukraine’s air defences.
Ukrainian military sources said it was understood to be a Russian Forpost drone, which is a licensed copy of the Israeli Searcher drone. It is not flown by any (…)

“Russia’s military is approaching the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv from several directions in a possible effort to encircle the city, but its forces have been stalled for several days, partly due to stiff resistance from Ukrainian troops, a senior U.S. defense official told reporters Monday.”

… was freed after 14h of “interrogation”: true hero like Zelenskyy.
Anti-war in Russia :
Russian police detained Marina Ovsyannikova, the editor of Channel One who showed up with anti-war banner on air. Lawyer Pavel Chikov said that a protocol was drawn up against her under the article 20.3.3 on military censorship for discrediting the russian armed forces.

A heartbreaking post made by a true war victim was the first post here until it was deleted because …well, because of his dire situation. See, he let his heart speak too much and this … against a repugnant troll.
He then said : “Please forgive my speech…” yet he was banned for a month from WorldNews.
Moderation work is certainly challenging and yet … i would have hoped for a little more compassion for his situation, yes.
Thank you for your concern.
Un post déchirant fait par une vraie victime de guerre fut ici en tête jusqu’à ce qu’il soit supprimé parce que… eh bien parce que son auteur est en situation désastreuse. Voyez, il a trop laissé parler son cœur, et ce contre un troll répugnant.
Puis il a dit : « S’il vous plaît, pardonnez mon discours… » et a été interdit pendant un mois de WorldNews.
Le travail de modération est certainement un défi et pourtant … J’aurais espéré un peu plus de compassion, oui.
Merci de votre sollicitude.
What’s lemmy.ml stance on Ukraine ?
Users should know. Will you, or other administrators, issue a statement ?
Since this :
Admin. Dessalines on “US atrocities”
We should at least remain critical. Thanks for your work 👍.
never mind, from Associated Press :
“China says it’s ‘impartial’ on Ukraine, denies aiding Russia”
remind me in 20 days …
meanwhile in China, Covid madness

.2) i collapse this comment since it is not quite relevant enough
from Wikipedia :
In 2011 a group of scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology assessed thorium-based power as “a 1000+ year solution or a quality low-carbon bridge to truly sustainable energy sources solving a huge portion of mankind’s negative environmental impact.”
will these 150 be thorium based ?
( 2nd ref., yours is paywalled )
( source )
(…) the international Nuclear Energy Agency predicts that the thorium cycle will never be commercially viable while uranium is available in abundance—a situation which may persist “in the coming decades”.

CPA produces high-intensity, super-short optical pulses that pack a tremendous amount of power (…)
This capability is what Mourou hopes give CPA a chance of neutralizing nuclear waste, (…)
Yet, it is not efficient :
Rodney C. Ewing of Stanford tells Bloomberg, “I can imagine that the physics might work, but the transmutation of high-level nuclear waste requires a number of challenging steps, such as the separation of individual radionuclides, the fabrication of targets on a large scale, and finally, their irradiation and disposal.”

S’il était possible de passer outre le sabotage et l’incompétence, malgré le théorème d’incomplétude (Gödel), je crois qu’il serait possible de fabriquer des systèmes sans failles, et ainsi d’arrêter de blâmer les autres. Dans plusieurs cas, je crois que des failles ont été laissées justement pour faire des “backdoors”, donc je suis d’accord avec toi (vous) en ce sens.
Sur Wikipédia je voulais bien trouver un article sur les groupes russes. Je vais y retourner plus tard…
J’ai lu récemment ici sur lemmy, que Anonymous serait présentement surtout un groupe américain (en partie supporté par le gouvernement).
J’aime bien tes interventions et je vais continuer à te lire. Santé et Paix, à la prochaine 😌

Because a_Ha’s account is now hanging by a thread it’s time to stop it.
Many exchanges here where fruitful for me, so, i hope it was the same for at least a few of you.
in Hope of a better future 😌
Since we discussed in private the banning of Serge Tarkovski with a positive outcome, it might be appropriate for you to make one more comment here.
Thank you for your concern.
