I literally never wear rain boots 😅. Probably because it never rains here. I do have some nice Docs and Solovairs for stompin’, though.

If there’s one thing the Ukraine War should have taught everyone, it’s that you can never expect ideological consistency from Russia’s government or Russian propaganda. Russia’s foreign policy is purely transactional.

Every foreign policy has inconsistencies, but Russia’s are virtually unending. Also, let’s not devolve into whataboutism.

Russia has in the past two years

  • Claimed Ukrainians are really Russians, and Ukraine has no legitimacy as a nation.
  • Claimed Russia is simply trying to remove Nazis from Ukraine.
  • Claimed they are trying to save Russian speakers in Ukraine, despite the fact those same Russian speakers have suffered and died just the same as any other Ukrainians.
  • Repeatedly bombed and terrorised Ukrainian civilians, including those Russian speakers.
  • Claimed they are at war with NATO, but also made it illegal to call the Ukraine War a “war”.
  • Despite being “at war with NATO”, they’ve moved forces away from the Finnish border to reinforce their units in Ukraine. Is (NATO member) Finland a threat or not?
  • Annexed four Ukrainian oblasts, despite not even occupying them entirely.
  • Said the west shouldn’t interfere in Russian affairs on the grounds of national sovereignty, despite invading their sovereign neighbour.

I could keep going, but you get the picture. It’s true that other governments have inconsistent policies, and I have agreed with that. But the sheer scale of Russian disinformation, distraction and destruction are far beyond those of other governments. And playing the “what about” card is nothing but a tactic of derailing the conversation; it adds nothing, just making the discourse confused and meaningless. We aren’t talking about “other countries”, we’re talking about Russia.

fiery and sometimes confusing comments

That’s the entire Russian foreign ministry, and state propaganda outlets.

Ben Wallace quit months ago. The Defence Minister is Grant Shapps.

If it’s not a war, then surely he’d be happy if the same thing happened to his country?

Because for Trump and his followers, every accusation is an admission.

Thanks for reminding me of UCB. Such a great show.

I agree! The Russians are ghouls for continuing this horrid bloodbath. They should withdraw to the internationally recognised border immediately.

“It’s fake”
“The Ukrainian Military did it”
“It was a legitimate military target”
“They probably deserved it anyway”
