This is one very brave man, I hope the people will open their eyes and see thing's as they are. I also hope the man does not vanish off the face of the earth.

Given the control of Russian media how come it was even broadcast?

No idea, but something is afoot, as Mr Holmes would say.  :hmm:

It was around yesterday and I wondered that then.

Will they believe what he says ?
Maybe not but the real wonder for me is that it got broadcast at all.

-Oy-

I'm wondering if it's all just a set up to try to justify escalation?

If by escalation you mean nukes then there can never be any acceptable justification.

If you mean pour in more troops and weapons I think they have already given it their best shot and it wasn't good enough. Russia has lost. All they can do now is continue to bombard civilians with artillery because they have failed dismally when attacking armed defenders. Missile attacks have declined - probably because they are running out of them.

What was meant to be a week to take Kiev and so the country has deteriorated to trying to increase what they had already taken and that has cost them thousand of lives and military vehicles along with a fleet flagship and  many fighter jets and helicopters. Make no mistake - this has humiliated Putin and set back Russia years.
