In Ukraine, you can buy a lot of different trophies from the war. For example an UMPK. Perhaps it will be interesting for Tom.

Also, you can buy parts of different Russian missiles, Shahed-136, Lancet and many other items. As usual, all money will be spent on the AFU.

Warning, I don't have any items on this auction and I haven't any ties with those people. It's just for information.

"The German company Rheinmetall, three French companies, the UK’s BAE, Sweden, the Turkish Baykar company, are all setting up production facilities for IFVs, multiple varieties of drones, and ammo, and repair facilities for armored vehicles and artillery. The US is in discussion for setting up production facilities for 155mm shells." I dont know why but im always sceptical about stuff like this, how are they going to defend these facilities?

Don: this was probably on of THE MOST informative posts I have read from you (i.e. with all the extra article links).

Also: "Nature still exists in wartime"......you mean S.O.B. That made me cry and made my wife cry. Goodness finds goodness and attracts the same. That is why after 25 years in this apartment over 200 feral cats have passed through our home and into the homes of others and over 30 spent their lives with us (max was 11 at one time, now 6 all since COVID).
