    I was driving round Scotland today and there's a town named after a big Russian city, of course it has Ukranian flag draped over the town sign,
    This ain't gonna last that much longer, better for Putin the sooner he gets his troops out imo.

    The people are reporting the truth. The average person with a cell phone that is brave enough to record atrocities is more than enough. There is tons of cellphone footage from innocent Ukrainians all over the web. Ya can't get no closer to the ground than that.

    The average person reporting the truth is a double edged sword.
    I am referring to the fact that posting videos, photos on social media without scrambling or deletion of EXIF metadata is a security risk. A real one.
    To context, uploading a video or a photo with that metadata gives more credibility but in the same time gives on a silver plate the location and GPS data to the attacker.

    If something needs to be learn quickly, is that in a war people need to be aware that the mere digital data can be weaponized. Using privacy tools, open source solutions can make a real life and death difference.

    Also heard from a sauce. That one gym got blown to bits since one Ukrainian soldier shared an image on instagram while they were planning counter offensive.

    That's the gist of it. That soldier wasn't aware of EXIF data embedded in a harmless photo and sorry to say it bluntly, he "signed" everyone in that gym their death sentences.

    This is why one has to learn about privacy and details about their digital life.
    Again, sorry to use that brutal situation to preach about privacy and all, but its the most "in your face" example one can have to realise this is beyond serious. This is vital.

    But yes it's easily life and death situation. I think it's a good place to preach.

    I'm talking about a neutral party that would take footage from both sides, verify it and attempt to give as much context to any event as possible. Was a building, or a house that got destroyed targeted for no reason at all, was it an accident, was there military or military equipment in or around that area etc.
    For so many of these videos being shown on the news / social media, you can find a video directly countering the previous interpretation. And since 99.99% of people aren't going to dig through the internet ( Including me. But I ran across enough, even within the first few days, to know that a lot of what we're seeing and hearing from msm / front pages of social media should be taken with a grain of salt ) it would be nice to have a place you can go to for objective reporting on any event, based on verified footage.

    Example: Phone video: "oh no, they're targeting shopping centers, look at all the destruction..." vs UAV footage showing you that rocket systems were being stored in that exact mall.

    Preach is a word associated with dogmas and stigma.
    Let's stick to raise awareness. Let's make it proactive.

    People, use free software, with the user in control of the data.Not vice versa.

    So you have satellite images with Mariupol erased and you still need footage from neutral party? You are Unreal indeed.

    And was I talking about Mariupol or it not being erased? What is even the point of your post?

    Well they are targeting pretty much anything. That is what you will hear from Ukrainians living there. Just Russians shooting at things because they are things. Not necessarily having anything to do with military. Sure the line men can be lied to that there are for example snipers in buildings and they just end up destroying everything.

    I am guessing biggest reason for annexing Crimea was to have a bigger hold on the black sea and to use it for such purposes.

    All I'm saying is, having a neutral party with as much verified footage from both sides, about any event, would be great. I don't know why anyone wouldn't want that.

    I don't believe such thing is even remotely possible. Everyone will have a bias literally everyone.
