Twitter: 10th December 2022. Today, a little bit of history that might explain Empire, Imperialist and Putin’s 5,000 word essay whilst in the COVID-19 wilderness, consumed with fear of catching it. It is said Putin admires Catherine (woman) the Great. This may tempt people to read a little history … she was a woman with ambition and action.

What is Catherine the Great known for? Catherine II, called Catherine the Great, reigned over Russia for 34 years—longer than any other female in Russian history. As empress, Catherine westernized Russia. She led her country into full participation in the political and cultural life of Europe.

She championed the arts and reorganized the Russian law code. She also significantly expanded Russian territory. Today Catherine is a source of national pride for many Russians.

On #HumanRightsDay, existence of similar to the Izolyatsia illegal prisons, created by Russia in the occupied territories of Ukraine, should remind the world of 2 things: vestigiality of aggressor’s appeasement & the price of freedom that  is paying.  Russia must be held to account.

The fallen defender of Kyiv became a Hero of Ukraine. On the first day of the invasion, Lt.Col. Vyacheslav Yerko shot down a russian Su-25 and two Mi-24 helicopters. The next day, he destroyed a russian Su-35, was shot down, ejected, and the invaders cowardly shot him in the air.

Unlikely that Putin and his regime cronies will ever be captured, but it’s important that the international community recognize them for what they are – criminals.

The number of countries providing security assistance to Ukraine has expanded by one more important partner. I thank the Bulgarian Parliament for its historic vote to provide the first military aid package. It will arrive soon to strengthen our army and bring our victory closer.

The Russian army is losing on the battlefield against Ukraine soldiers, so Putin has ordered them to attack Ukrainian civilians instead. Any honorable soldier would be embarrassed to carry out such attacks against grandmothers and children.
