I'll just assume it's not a right moment to remind you that we're not producing enough coal for even country market energy-wise and had to buy it - a lot of it from Russia. On the plus side, we have a lot of coal to eat, tho.Will there be anything left to eat for you @Do not look here ?
True. We bought it from Russia mostly because we sold ours to the western countries with bigger profits. I'm generally not sure if we weren't able to dig for more, or the EU limits didn't allow Poland to dig for more...I'll just assume it's not a right moment to remind you that we're not producing enough coal for even country market energy-wise and had to buy it - a lot of it from Russia.

That might be the best but highly unlikely situation to happen... Next and more probable is still assassination - unfortunately.
Yeah, that would've made me jump, if I was the one holding that! (I assume that's the detonator?) That's gotta be nerve-wracking as ****. It reminds me of a drama I watched when I was little called Danger: UXB, about British bomb disposal crews during WW2: according to the TV show, basically there was this arms/knowledge race going on between the British servicemen trying to figure out how to safely disarm un-exploded bombs (UXBs), and the Germans, who were actually trying to make the bombs more difficult to disarm without them going boom.
Dwarf Fortress??P.S. Arvenski, like your signature! Great game.
People may rightfully mock Russian military ineptness, but at the end of the day, they are still winning, at least in a military way. We are now entering the siege of Kiev phase which will be long and bloody, but would only slow them down (by a lot). I just can't see how the military situation can change in favor of Ukraine, because dictators can press on even with substantial attritional losses.
If Russia was a democracy, public opinion back at home may have forced Putin to accept he can't reach his war goals and negotiate a compromise from a strong position. But Russia is not a democracy and its citizens are brainwashed daily by government-friendly media, so there's not much internal pressure (yet?) to stop the war.
