Zelensky called out Coca-Cola for continuing to do business in Russia. Has that changed?

Apparently Pepsi also is still there. Along with quite a few others.

Siberia? Too close to the heart of the problem. How about Saudi Arabia? They seem to have the right approach, using the sword for justice...

Whoops! I hope this is not a political post! Apologizes in advance...
Nope it's not political... Well at least i don't see a political spin here.

PepsiCo said it would stop selling soda in Russia but would continue to produce dairy and baby food products there, calling it a “humanitarian” effort.

A theater where hundreds of people had taken shelter in Mariupol was bombed on Wednesday.

New satellite images from Maxar Technologies show that on Monday, the word "children" was spelled out outside the theater that the Mariupol City Council said was bombed on Wednesday.

The City Council said that on Wednesday that Russian forces had "purposefully and cynically destroyed the Drama Theater in the heart of Mariupol. The plane dropped a bomb on a building where hundreds of peaceful Mariupol residents were hiding."

I had not heard that. Then again, I haven't been paying much attention to what the soda companies are doing...

One thing that I noticing more and more is that Russia can't hide their atrocities from the world, because there are satellites that are seeing it all in real time.

As soon as Russia comes up with some spin on what or why they did something it gets proven as B.S.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is said to be conducting purges of military generals and intelligence personnel, including arrests of FSB (Federal Security Service) officers.

Putin had replaced at least eight generals “due to their failures in Ukraine” and authorities have detained personnel from the FSB’s 5th Service.


Pretty soon Putin will run out of puppets that he can control!

I'm not understanding how you think our conversation of the war in Ukraine as political?
If you don't think you can post a reply without spinning it into political, send me a PM with your reason and I'll listen and reply there.

I shed tears every time I read a report that is actually factual...Which most are, but who knows in this day and age?

Still one country invaded another...not sure how this can be disputed...

AND I should add that Pearl Harbor was real, and my wife is Japanese, and my two daughters were born in Japan, so I get it, kind of...it is all about the people in power and not about the normal people in any country...

I'm of German heritage, and I bow my head in shame when I think of what Nazi Germans did.
This is too similar in action to not have a parallel thought in my mind.

Read this about the German Riech (aka Nazi Germany), and see if you don't see a very eerie and similar parallel with what Putin has and is doing right now.

So we are sending defensive weapons there for farmers and other untrained persons to defend them selves, according to that goofy redhead. And on the other hand they want to disarm us so we have no defensive weapons to defend our homes and families. I guess that makes sense to them

Sorry skeets, but your spinning things!
This is not Hogwarts and just because you don't say Voldemort doesn't mean we don't know where your going with this.
Keep it on track. ;)

But I would rather send a 1000 missiles to be in the hands of Ukrainian farmers, than I would let Putin walk all over them and take there farms from them.

Your fine, we all get it.

To everyone, I'm not that much of a jerk, I do get that all these things, Ukraine, Russia, Fuel prices, Covid, housing, jobs, food costs, and other hotbed topics are hard to keep it Non political or Non heated.

Just remember this, we are all here because we all love or hate (depending on the day and how it's running) our Kubota's.

We all have opinions and we all have feelings, just keep it civil and we'll be fine.

Carry on!
