  • I’m cautiously happy to see the American settle and go ahead with the military aid for Ukraine (and Taiwan). Time is seriously running out, and I’m afraid that the West falls in the “too little too late” trap. Now finish this and ship the good stuff out ASAP FTW!

  • The House of Representatives are going to vote on separate bills for Ukraine and Israel aid this weekend. My fear is that aid for Israel gets a go but not Ukraine which would be devastating. This could be a turning point.

  • So, the US defence secretary doesn’t like this idea of Ukraine hitting oil refineries in Russia, because they are civilian targets and because it could affect the global oil market. How about Russia, who’s 99% of the time hitting civilian targets in Ukraine for more than two years? This position is not defendable. Imagine if Russia hit 1% of the US civilian targets. Imagine that.

  • If rumors are true that Trump’s plan to end the war in Ukraine when he returns to the Office is for both sides to save face. How do you achieve that if the rumoured plan is for Ukraine to cease Crimea and Donbas regions to Russia? How is Ukraine saving face here? What a motherfucker this guy is. This “plan” really reflects the way he conducted himself during is “business career” and as an acting president. I hope he goes to hell. 😑

  • I find it insulting and inhumane to ask Ukraine to stop hitting the oil refineries in Russia for fear of causing a rise in gas prices. The Americans didn’t hesitate to go take down Saddam Hussein and trigger the Gulf War, nothing less. What a bunch of hypocrites. I’m fuming.

  • Two Years Already

    We let Putin’s regime invade Ukraine in 2014, and we did nothing. In 2022, Ukraine and the world, to a certain degree, paid the price of our inaction by letting Putin’s criminals do it again, but on a much larger scale. Today marks a sad anniversary and reminds us how costly our … read more

  • πŸ”— Elon Musk nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    Billionaire Elon Musk β€” whose businesses range from satellites to social media β€” was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by a Norwegian lawmaker who praised the X owner as a β€œstout proponent for free speech.”

    You must be kidding me! While at it, why not nominate Putin for his fight against nazis in Ukraine. Beyond ridiculous.

  • If Ukraine loses the war against Putin’s regime in Moscow, it’s not Ukraine who loses, but the West. Fighting back after an eventual lost war will cost everyone’s ten if not hundred times more. When are we going to get this? Pressure your governments to do more, not less.

  • It’s now official: Trump and his clown followers are complicit of Putin. Disgusting. Disclaimer: this blog hosts my thoughts and mild-venting about the war in Ukraine πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦.

  • Reuters report:

    U.S. tech giant Apple (AAPL.O), opens new tab has paid a Russian fine of 1.2 billion roubles ($13.65 million), imposed over the company’s alleged abuse of its dominant market position concerning in-app payments, Russia’s FAS antitrust agency said on Monday.

    It’s like paying a fine to an organized crime group. Utterly shocking that the West still helps this criminal government in its war efforts in Ukraine. I can’t wait to see Trump licking their butt when he’s back.

  • I’m thinking of leaving Write.as. Last year, I purchased a 5-year subscription during a promotion, intending to use it extensively. However, I haven’t used it as much as I anticipated. My main focus was writing about the Ukraine war. I could migrate this to Micro.blog. Yet, I’m concerned that my views on the conflict might offend some people here, as not everyone is interested in politics. πŸ€”πŸ§

  • 9to5Mac reporting about WhatsApp usage in the US:

    The fact that more people in the US have been using WhatsApp recently is definitely intriguing. Source: WhatsApp has been getting more attention in the US

    iMessage usage in Canada is probably similar to that in the US. I started using WhatsApp when I went to Morocco last summer. I also have a friend who moved from Canada to Mexico, and he switched to WhatsApp, so now I have to use WhatsApp to reach him. I must say that I like it. I also follow some news channels, just for fun. I like the messaging app format to get news; that’s why I also use Telegram for the same purpose: to follow news from Ukraine.

  • Diverted Attention

    With recent events in Israel, we no longer hear about the conflict in Ukraine. I understand this could pose a problem for this conflict because people’s attention is severely diverted. Support for Ukraine was already waning before the attacks in Israel. Military aid packages are harder to get. Any … read more

  • Sorry But No Sympathy for Russian

    From a lunar rover to a plane (probably, to be confirmed) carrying the head of the infamous Wagner group (plus a few of his β€œfriends”), they all crash and burn in hell. I don’t care about the root causes, I have no sympathy at all for Russian failures. The more, the better. Eventually, some will … read more

  • Musk reminds me of Trump when he says he wants to have a conversation with Tim Cook about the App Store’s 30% cut on whatever shit they allow to sell through X.com. Just like Trump walking to the room in Ukraine or Russia and solving the Ukraine war in a day. What a pair of clowns these guys can be.

  • George Monastiriakos: The only way to save Russia is to dismantle it:

    β€œTo be clear: The Russian Federation is the third iteration of the Russian Empire. Spanning 11 time zones and comprising hundreds of ethnically, linguistically, religiously, and culturally distinct societies ruled by, from, and for the benefit of a small circle of kleptocrats primarily based in Saint Petersburg and Moscow, the Russian state has been unviable for centuries. Like empires of old, the only way to save Russia from itself is to dismantle it,β€œ writes George Monastiriakos, a fellow at the Geneva Centre for Security, in his recent op-ed.

  • A day at the office. Today, I had a meeting with my client’s external IT resources. One of them had a strange name, hard to pronounce. While waiting for everyone to join the meeting, wanting to fill in the silence, I asked where he was from. He responded, “Russia.” I said, “Oh.” 😱 This was followed by a big silence while I could see in mack back my Tidbyt display showing a prominent Ukrainian flag. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‘ŠπŸ»We moved on to the meeting’s first subject. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

    A colleague of mine told me after the meeting that not all Russians are ok with this war in Ukraine. Yeah, right. I guess. This is not a valuable excuse in my book. Where are the diaspora demonstrations, in Canada? In the US?

    Women in Iran have more courage to defend democratic values than those men in Russia to defend what is blatantly right from what is wrong. This is utterly frustrating.

    Glory to Ukraine. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦
