come gather round you sons of Russia enrich soil who don't understand?
n.b. It is reported in the NY Times that Russian military losses are in excess of 200,000, not counting the captured. That land must hold a lot of value to Moscow if it is happy to spread so much blood and bone.
paramedics wait up patients in car parks for hours our chronic decline
n.b. All very well spending £ billions of the public‘s taxed money on an aircraft carrier which broke on sea trials, PPE that was useless and never used, bureaucracy to leave the EU, (our biggest trading partner), but nothing invested in hospitals for those very taxpayers.
Meanwhile, tax dodging (avoidance and evasion) of the highest orderpersists by those actually in the highest executive positions of power.

The UK is a shambolic mess. How not to run a country.
private enterprise providing bodies for cause who does this profit?
n.b. As has been seen in Eritrea and Somalia, the persistence of a war, the subsequent escalation of arms supplies to a region, leads to local groupsestablishing their own power bases, baronial lands. In Ukraine’s Soledar, the Wagner group is cutting out a piece of territory for itself, one that has been smashed beyond recognitionabove ground.

It is also suggested that up to 25% of the military forces assaulting Ukraine are now comprised of mercenaries.This makes the war increasingly a commercial enterprise, one of the people of Ukraine versus capital.
Furthermore, for all the alleged negative impacts of the waron other national economies, those making the weaponry are cashing in big time. This is not just Iran and North Korea selling arms to Moscow, but every business selling its products to help Ukraine defend itself. Patriot weapons systems are bought from the profit oriented manufacturers, not just given away by the USA government from a magic vault.
