    I don't recall seeing these sources mentioned previously, but I haven't gone back over the thread. I've found them very useful:

    (1)

    https://kyivindependent.com/

    The 'News Feed' sidebar on the left has potted updates, with links to the originals, though some of those will be in Ukrainian or Russian. The current top story -- about the 16-year-old held prisoner for 3 months -- just adds another reason -- though no more are needed by this time -- why the invaders have to be eliminated from the land, with extreme prejudice.

    (2)

    Source material in the Ukrainian and Russian translated into English. The regular updates from Arestovych are helpful, the transcriptions of intercepted phone calls are all of informative, funny, and depressing. The Russian army, again, does not come out of it looking good.

    What Amnesty is claiming is that instead of positioning air defence and missile units in unpopulated urban areas like playing fields and car parks etc they have deliberately positioned them in schools and hospitals and in residential blocks to achieve maximum publicity for the war, You can see the evidence of this in some videos of the blocks of flats hit showing the damage but when the cameras pan out you see it is only a few hit in a group and hundreds of flats left whole and not attacked as the Russian aircraft are reacting to missiles launched from those specific buildings, The Ukraine government is run by a TV company so are clever at manipulating the media they release or make up, This is no defence of Russia who should not have invaded but Ukraine is fighting a war in every dirty way the same as Russia is and using its own civilian's as a shield which shows lack of care for them and as Amnesty International is pointing out is a massive war crime

    Weirdly there seems to be disagreement between parts of Amnesty about the report with those on the ground disagreeing to those in the office. The local branch have refused to publish the report

    They are under intense pressure from Zelensky locally and dare not agree with the report but those who are independent of view say the report is true. Do not forget Zelensky is a publicist and even the media have realised his manipulation of facts and featuring him less on news channels
