It is clear, that Russia does not behave according to the rules and laws of the international community. It is also clear, that Putin has not, and probably will not, give 2 hoots about most of the sanctions being contemplated and implemented today. But perhaps, just perhaps, as he has no experience of what a democracy looks and feels like, the combined reaction of the “vox populi”, the voice of the common man, might have a major impact on Russia and thereby, by proxy, on him.

Russia does not get to selectively pick from the menu of international freedom and collaboration. They have decided not to play by these rules and therefore should be excluded. And this should be done at all levels: cultural, economy, sports, leisure, holidays; wherever Russia is a member or Russian people are involved. Postpone, cancel, suspend, delay any and all transactions and events.

Pressure World Sailing, FIFA, UEFA, the World Chess Federation, FIS (Ski federation), the International Institute of Accountants, or whatever organisation you are involved in, to suspend Russia’s membership or Russian members and cancel any events involving Russian teams or locations and revoke the licences of Russian players. Are you buying Russian products? See if there are any alternatives or else delay it as long as possible. Are they buying from you? If you can stop the transaction then do so, else stiff them on price, delivery, any which way you can. Cancel or suspend language exchange, science or any other collaboration programs.

No-one is going to like this. There will be quotes like “you should separate politics and “(fill in whatever interest is being pursued)”” or “it’ll hurt the common Russians” or “It won’t have an effect”. In the end, it will have an effect. You can’t look a Russian in the eye and say that this behaviour is ok. They’ve “elected” Putin, they should feel the consequences of his actions.

Perhaps the vox populi can do what diplomacy can’t: tell him where the boundaries are.

Ukraine is (was) a free country, and can join NATO if they want (and NATO accepts). WTF is Putin or anybody else to limit their sovereignty?

It's funny and sad to see people who called Trump  "the Orange Hitler" trying to justify the closest resemblance to Hitler that we have nowadays (Well, maybe Kim Jong-un is closer)

While this should be in PA, someone has to point out that Der Spiegel can't be cited for unbiased commentary at this moment. Germany has a clear understanding of history...how could they have allowed themselves to become so beholden to Putin's natural gas?  I guess business greed corrupted clearheaded security planning.

Because Germany doesn't give a shit about anything other than their own interests. It's not that they understand history, it's that they have a clear tendency to create it regardless of the implications for everybody else

Ukraine’s ambassador to the United Nations had a damning message for Russian leaders as military attacks on his nation began early Thursday.
And he delivered them right to his Russian counterpart during an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council.


Kyslytsya also called out Russia for leading the Security Council during the crisis.

“Pass these responsibilities on to a legitimate member of Security Council,” he demanded.

@MarthaRaddatz reporting from Ukraine shares a striking message she received from a Pentagon official several hours ago: “You are likely in the last few hours of peace on the European continent for a long time to come.”

Zelensky threatened to develop nukes a few days ago in Munich. 

Russian leadership said “Nyet”

don’t elect comedians as political leaders 

US based westoids should know that by now
Ukraine had nuclear weapons, and gave them up in 1996 in exchange for a guarantee of territorial sovereignty. That apparently did not work out so well for them, comrade.

Praying for military operation to proceed quickly and with minimal loss of life

I bet nazi scum in the azov battalions are pissing themselves tho

facing a real army rather than shelling civilians for 8 years must be a change 

karma sucks sometimes :)

The Budapest Memorandum...I'm shocked, shocked I say, that for the first time ever, the UK and the US are not living up to their obligations. Never happened before.

Nuclear proliferation, here we come!

The list of nations that will see nuclear weaponry as necessary for their own survival just got a whole lot bigger.
