There is also the fear in Russia that your real personal opinion could get you killed so I'm not sure the approval ratings for Putin are all that accurate

We had no idea what the real situation was until long after the war ended, there was only one version of events available. I suppose the same thing is happening on the Ukrainian side now, I read reports which sound like obvious exaggerations, and of course, there are no negative reports filtering through into the West, which also isn't credible in a war situation. We'll find out the real extent of the horror show some time after it all ends. The problem is that each side will stick to their story.
There's a great Sontag quote circulating apropos of just that

Look up their performance in Afghanistan and a pattern will start to emerge.

Ukraine suspends 11 political parties with links to Russia

Quote:
The political move comes as Zelenskiy aims to further assert his influence over the country’s media sphere. On Sunday, the Ukrainian leader signed a decree that aims to unite all national TV channels into one platform, citing the importance of a “unified information policy” under martial law.
A bit of old news that I've just read about. War is a complication situation but it's curious how it follows a similar pattern everywhere.

Earlier it was "limping back to port": guess it didn't make it!

News Alert: Russian warship sinks in the Black Sea after Ukraine claims it was hit by a missile


One of the Russian Navy's most important warships has sunk in the Black Sea, a massive blow to a military struggling against Ukrainian resistance 50 days into Vladimir Putin's invasion of his neighbor.

Russian state news agency TASS reported Thursday evening that the guided-missile cruiser Moskva had sunk, citing a statement from the Russian Ministry of Defense.

"During the towing of the cruiser Moskva to the port of destination, the ship lost its stability due to hull damage received during a fire from the detonation of ammunition. In the conditions of stormy seas, the ship sank," the statement said, according to TASS.

Conflicting accounts have emerged about the incident.

Ukraine's Operational Command South claimed earlier on Thursday that the Moskva had begun to sink after it was hit by Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missiles.
