1) Luís de Vega (Járkov), “Nuevos bombardeos rusos a infraestructuras de Ucrania dejan al menos 35 muertos y cortes de luz; Una parte importante de Kiev y de otras ciudades se queda sin electricidad ni agua mientras el alcalde de la capital pide a los vecinos que se aprovisionen. Entre las víctimas mortales hay un recién nacido en Zaporiyia,” El País, el 23 de noviembre 2022 (11:08, actualizado a las 13:07 EST);

3) James Kilner and Roland Oliphant, “Vladimir Putin tells soldiers’ angry mothers he ‘feels their pain’ in Moscow meeting; The choreographed meeting appears to acknowledge the Kremlin’s failings in mobilising fresh forces,” The Telegraph, November 25, 2022 (9:02 pm);


The video of Putin speaking about the war accompanying the Kilner and Oliphant article in The Telegraph is absolutely extraordinary.You can see Ptin speaking under extraordinary stress, often seemingly at a loss for words, as he tries to reassure Russian mothers who have lost @ son in Ukraine that he “feels their pain.” Absolutely extraordinary.
