    Apart from not wanting to be in a hot war with Russia?

    I know it will be a drop in ocean but many drops, you know what i mean.
    If you are serious with that:

    Luckily the Spetznas is out busy looting a local supermarket so both the Russian and Ukrainian deligation should be safe

    Revolut is russian...Just saying...
    It's British, lol. Just because it's been founded by russian (actually ukrainian) people it doesn't mean it is russian as in aligned to the state of Russia. And one of the most important things we should take home from this whole shit show is that regular people in Russia are people like you and me who want to leave in peace. Don't project one madman's actions upon a whole people.
    More american than british then, lol, their US office is bigger. Check how big Saint Petersburg one is. Also even though it has office in Londongrad (that's how russians call London, with all the oligarchs owning so much etc.) and is registered there did you know founder is a son of one of Gazprom executives? You can dig deeper if you want.

    Quoting tweets makes broken posts. So.


    I guess they are going to the deep shelters on the periphery of Moscow just in case.

    Sanctions of this scale are a existential threat, if not for Russia than for Putin's regime. Though "don't put up sanctions on us, don't supply Ukrainians, and also you must keep trading with us, or we nuke you" is a very difficult threat for USA and EU to just accept. If he openly threatens (as in, not in press release but over the hotline) to use nukes if West doesn't give in to all of his demands... The West will give in. For a time. I would expect massive ABM spending incoming.

    There have been rumours that Putin is begining to show signs of a disease of old age like Parkinsons or Dementia which given his seemingly unhinged state must be causing concern in the inner circles of Moscow.

    Threatening a nuclear attack will put everyone on edge including China who so far is the only ally of worth Russia has left.

    And it won't stop the fighting in Ukranine as the Ukranians can sense that they just might prevail and at least return to the pre-invasion status quo.

    Having grown up during the cold war I am aware that the militaries on both sides have heading off potential nuclear war in the past. Hopefully there are still some Russian officers with a degree of integrity and love for country left in the strategic forces.

    Getting dementia at just 70 would be really bad luck for Vladimir Vladimirovich. Though Terry Pratchett died of it at sixty something...

    No one on either side has seriously considered nuclear strategy for 30 years, nor how to behave during a crisis. There is huge risk of someone to fuck up

    Yeah, let's not take their word for good fish. RT is following a strict government agenda.

    Here's a legit way to help if you have some cash spare:

    And anything with RT logo is russian state propaganda. Here's their director of broadcasting courtesy of helgur's post pages back

    Telling russian ships to go fuck themselves is apparently the new naval tradition.
