    Very sad times. Can please some Ukrainian or/and Russian psychonaut report, what she/he thinks about the crises. After the last 2 years, I only believe in half of German media.

    Adequate Ukrainian media: https://english.nv.ua/
    Adequate Russian media (labeled as "foreign agent" in their country): https://meduza.io/en
    Obviously, I will not recommend you any pro-putin "official" Russian media - they all are bunch of lying dicks.

    P.S. I'm from Ukraine (currently live in Dnipro).

    @ punknotyet: How is the situation in Dnipro at the moment? Do you prepare for Russian attacks - and how? Would like to learn what is going on...

    @Johnny_Heartfield, it's still pretty quiet here in Dnipro.
    Our province is relatively safe place at the moment.
    We have air raid sirens (~ 2-5 per day), but that's about it.

    A lot of people joined the army or territorial defense forces not because of the fact of total mobilization, but because they really are brave and have required skills and desire to fight the oppressor.
    A lot of other people help to prepare Molotov's cocktails, camouflage nets, anti-tank barriers; help to buy and deliver all the necessary supplies and goods; help refugees from other provinces; help to do many other important things.
    It really looks like this war united all our people.

    Personally I'm not that brave and don't have skills/expirience to join the military.
    I continue to work at my job as a support programmer (while there is still a possibility for that) in order to help the army and other volunteers/organisations financially (donated already ~3/4 of all my savings).
    I hope that helps as well.

    Very nice article from Spin magazine: https://www.spin.com/2022/03/ukraine-russia-resistance/
    It has a lot of information about current events from underground rock musicians from Kyiv, Kharkiv, Lviv and other Ukrainian cities.
    Some of their bands (like 5R6, Stoned Jesus or Somali Yacht Club) I even mentioned previously on this forum in "New Music" thread.

    @ punknotyet: Thank you for the detailed information. We are with Ukraine here in Cologne , though not enough measures are taken imho to stop Putin's ability to continue the war. We still receive gas, oil and coal from Russia and therefore finance the desaster. Alledgedly it is almost impossible for us to do without Russian energy - a result of the catastrophic energy policy of the last 20 years. Personally I'd rather do without - a little freeze and less traffic is nothing compared to what your people are going through at the moment.

    Myself I'm not very fit for military action, but I have often thought what I would do in your situation. Though I refused military service then in the early 90s aa a young and very naive pacifist, I have long since become a little more realistic. Couldn't hit a target from 10 meters distance though with a gun.
    Hopefully they manage to stop Putler asap. Our now very isolated ex-chancellor Schröder, nicknamed "Putin's poodle" in Russia, has alledgedly travelled to Russia to convince his corrupt "friend" to withdraw, but I'm rather pessimistic there.

    Thanks for the Spin mag link though - I'll have a look.

    Stay safe!

    @punknotyet: I'm pretty sure I heard Dnipro had been attacked within the last day. Are you OK? I expect everyone will hope we hear from you.

    Thank you, guys. I'm OK.
    Yes, there was especially long air raid siren this morning and

    ...a missile hit a shoe factory, starting a fire, and two others landed not far from a kindergarten and a residential building. One civilian was killed in this attack, State Emergency Service of Ukraine has reported...

    I live in different part of city ~8 kilometers from that place, so I have't seen or heard it personally.

    Thanks for posting. It's difficult to even begin to imagine how it must be there. Stay in touch. Love and prayers.

    Wladimir Poontang should be aware that there's a special hell for people bombing psychonauts. To quote from Julian Cope: "All day Barry Manilow: Mandy, Copacabana..."
    Or whatever seems fit.

    @ punknotyet: How's the situation wiht you right now? Just read about some rockets from Russia on Dnipro. Pootin got that wrong as well: the song's called "Rocket to Russia". Take your Rock'n'Roll lessions, man!

    Johnny_Heartfield, thank you, I'm OK, although these yesterday's rockets were pretty close (~4 km from my house) and loud.
    >> Pootin got that wrong as well: the song's called "Rocket to Russia". Take your Rock'n'Roll lessions, man!
    Yeah, I'm pretty sure his musical tastes and overall knowledge in this field suck. Same as everything else about this asshole.

    There is a nice brewery in Lviv (Western Ukraine) called Pravda (Truth).
    One of their beers is called "Putin Huilo" and has awesome cover, that still make me laugh:

    I already knew this one (the pravda beer), but it still makes me laugh. Would't trust a beer with Putin on though, even if it is only a spitting image...
