Given the number of reports of fires going on in Russia that may be the responsibility of anti-Putin forces, maybe this deserves a separate thread.

Pooties Palace and Superyacht might make him sit up and pay attention, targeting a market will only affect the population that he has robbed for decades.

Could be the French Frying Legion? Good idea for a separate thread - last night some discussions mostly discounting this is Ukraine sending in under cover groups, more likely pissed off or don't want to go die in Putin's operation Russians.  A lot of people have family in both countries and can't be very happy about seeing Ukraine getting shelled to rubble.

Agreed. Those targets would also show that it's not Putin actually causing these fires and blaming them on Ukraine/his opposition in an effort to boost support.

Forest fires are now burning out of control in Siberia.   In different circumstances, other countries might have volunteered firefighters and equipment to help Russia.   Not anymore.   

A Canadian forest scientist was interviewed by CBC today about the fires in Siberia, which are more extensive and further north than ever and causing huge amounts of carbon to be released into the atmosphere.  When asked whether the world should try to help she said "I'm more worried about the children in Ukraine than about forests in Russia" even though they are her life's work.

I have to repeat this post:

Putin went from being the most brilliant spymaster in all of history, getting the USA and UK to dance on his strings for pennies and looking to wreck NATO by proxy without lifting his little finger to being an absolute idiot in charge of a decaying country with an army that makes the Keystone Cops look good. To add to it, his own country seems to be destroying itself without any external help at all.
What-The-Actual-F is going on in what remains of his mind :unsure:

When TFG had no hope to retain power, other than his attempted coup, we got this shit. Vlad still has lots of nukes. Vlad can set the world on fire. It could kill most of us, he has the tools. A cornered rat will not lay down and let you capture them. It's hard to see how this special military operation, can lead to victory for anyone, except the MIC.

"Nice business center ya go there, be a shame if something happened to it."

I'm sure stuff catches fire in Russia, without it being a Ukrainian inspired act of sabotage.

OTOH there are plenty of people in Russia who are saying to themselves "Fuck this shit, I'll show these assholes." I bet if it was set, it was by a disgruntled employee or ex-employee

The 18-story Dm Tower business center - still under construction - on the Novodanilovskaya embankment in Moscow is on fire. This was reported in a tweet by the independent Belarusian news site Nexta Tv. In the photo posted by the media you can see the dark smoke coming out of the top floor of the building. A builder who worked on the construction site told an MSK1.RU correspondent that the fire actually occurred on the top floor. " Yes, one room has caught fire , " he commented.
