Having listened to all of #Putin's speech yesterday, it was clear his intention was to portray the US (and allies) as aggressors, and how #Russia only wanted peace.

The world's heard this before.
Putin playing games, seeing how long he can copy his hero

1/8. It’s time for some careful diplomacy by Europe/the West (& Japan) with individual #Oblasts, #Republics & #Krais in Russia. Explanation below:
2/8. Unless #Putin is overthrown, Russia is a mess financially & militarily & will be unable to support them anyway. With its latest actions & nuclear threats, Russia needs some pairing down, as it’s become a reckless, marauding danger to the entire planet & now’s the time.
3/8. Diplomacy would include lifting sanctions in these areas to encourage breakaway from Russian rule & future protection from Russia which will be much smaller and weaker.

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

#OTD 80 yrs ago, the USSR began the first #WWII mass deportation of citizens from Poland’s eastern borderlands occupied by the Soviets on Sept. 17, 1939. Deported from Stanisławów prov. at 11 yrs old, Adam J. drew the deportation train scene he witnessed from within a cattle car.
On the drawing, Adam noted: “Bolsheviks are chasing the civilian population away from train cars in which they were deporting Poles”. During #WWII, Polish civilians were deported by the USSR in four waves: February 10, 1940, April 13, 1940, June 1940, and June 1941.
This map – created by the Cartography Service of the Polish Army in the East – estimates the total number of Polish citizens (1,050,000) deported by the USSR from Soviet occupied eastern Poland during the years 1939-1941. Results are shown by region. #WWII
