If it’s true that Germany is going soft on Russia in hopes of doing good business post war, this is the most shameful thing ever.

Berlin’s restraint towards UKR is a consequence of RU long-term subversive actions in Germany. But this is also closely related to German expectations that in some post-war arrangement, it will once again be the first RU partner in the developed Europe…

Brent is already $78. Putin is as brilliant an economist as he is a warlord. Counting on the world being horrified by a potential $140 a barrel and letting him do whatever he wants has proved as credible as the plan to take Kyiv in three days.

Brent уже 78 долларов. Путин — такой же гениальный экономист, как военачальник. Расчёт на то, что мир ужаснется потенциальным $140 за баррель и позволит ему делать всё что угодно, оказался таким же надёжным, как и план взять Киев за три дня.

All the repressions, terror & detentions will not stop us from fighting for a free, democratic & peaceful Belarus. The so-called trial against me is a farce. Lukashenka should be on trial for crimes against our people & Ukrainians. The dictator won’t be able to escape justice.

Happy Birthday to Marfa Rabkova! Today, she turns 28 in prison. She is one of our greatest heroes. Marfa fought for human rights in Belarus & was sentenced to 15 years in prison – the longest sentence for a female political prisoner. Her husband Vadzim was also detained.

The price of Russian oil collapsed 24% in December, to $50 a barrel. This is $10 below the price ceiling set by the West. In reality, the price is even lower as $50 also includes the cost of insurance and shipping. This is very bad for the Ruble.
