25th January 2023: Tweets, video’s, a quotation. Ukraine invaded by Russian Federation. Imperialist putin used the isolation imposed by COVID-19 to isolate himself and create his version of history published in a 5,000 word essay. Beware of Messiah Complex.

Quotation

Woe to that nation whose literature is cut short by the intrusion of force. This is not merely interference with freedom of the press but the sealing up of a nation’s heart, the excision of its memory.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the President of Ukraine, had extensive negotiations with President of France Macron on January 24. ‘I thank Mr. President for his willingness to strengthen Ukraine’s air defense and expand our armored cooperation,’ the President underlined. The Russian occupiers are already increasing pressure in the Bakhmut, Vuhledar and other directions. And they want to increase pressure on a larger scale. ‘I heard today a full understanding of the situation both in a conversation with Mr. President Macron and in a conversation with Mr. President of Finland, who was on a visit to Kyiv,’ Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted.

Just to be clear, when the New York Times reported that the FBI saw “no link between Trump and Russia” — a week before the 2016 election — the FBI agent who was just arrested over ties to Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska was heading up the investigation. Just an absolute scandal.

Predictably, Russian TV isn’t happy with Leopard tanks being sent to Ukraine, and Channel One’s response is to keep pointing at Germany’s ‘Nazi sins’. ‘Looks like Russian soldiers will be fighting German tanks with German crosses on Russian land again,’ said one talk show host.

No better way to spread the word about human rights abuse than through Hollywood. I’m so happy that Alexei Navalny’s story has been nominated for an Academy Award. Hopefully this will put more pressure on the Russian government to release him.
