    Above is an advertisement for a concert by Okean Elzy (Океан Ельзи, Elzy's Ocean), the most popular band in Ukraine. They fill stadiums. The presence of Ukraine in Wroclaw, Poland, is everywhere, as well as signs of solidarity between the two countries. This is my first trip to Poland. Before...

    russia's "political commentators" so often try to out-macho each other. One guy will say, "We will kill you all," another guy will say, "Hey now, he's just a journalist," and the first guy will say, "I don't care, I'll kill him," and the second guy will basically shrug, as if to say, he's got a...

    You may both have a reasonable disagreement about Assange and Wikileaks, but Juks is not a Putin fanboy. He has been a great poster in this thread.

    Thank you for this rare burst of self-doubt--(?)--about your own bullshit. You simply didn't know whether what you said was true and you admitted it. Hooray! Please adopt the (?).

    That's what I have heard too, and it even extends to the russian soldiers who invaded Donbas in 2014, became too well known as russians for a russia that kept insisting that the resistance was Ukrainian led, and one way or another ended up shot, exploded, or otherwise erased.

    Judging by your posts, you so often seem dumbfounded by how Internet forums work. Allow me to be the training wheels on your bicycle careening along the information superhighway. Everyone knows you were responding to the Amnesty findings. That isn't news to anyone, except perhaps to you, due to...

    Sometimes a trolling post can be so desperate, witless, and stupid that it ends up cheering me up. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and opinions here.

    I see your point. I feel differently about it. Except for the trolls, I am reading lots of interesting posts. Sometimes I agree, sometimes not, but I like learning, whether it is fresh insights on history or a new source to follow on Twitter or YouTube or elsewhere. I like how it is branching out.

    Now we just need the resentment to resume brewing in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan. The quicker Russia snaps under the strain of its own delusions as the Policeman of Asia, the better.

    Your argument in visual form: i.e., Chernobyl. Nobody thinks about a third-world gas station while it is pumping gas. Russia is a former superpower built on decades of propaganda celebrating its own superiority due to its Russian-ness, and so naturally it can't accept its new role as a gas...

    His goal isn't to learn anything. More specifically, his goal is to learn absolutely nothing. It is why in his complaints about the lies of western propaganda, he ended up hitching his wagon to the nearest proven fraud and long-time pro-Putin commentator, Alexander Mercouris. To give you some...

    I am pretty sure that Chornobaevka had been the source of jokes among my Ukrainian students because of how many times russian forces tried to take an airport there but repeatedly suffered heavy losses, thus becoming a meme about russian incompetence and repeated willingness to send its soldiers...
