1/8. Sister cities should help one another. American cities can help Ukrainian ones. #SisterCitiesforUkraine #HelpYourSister #StandWithUkraine
2/8. A number of American cities have sister cities in #Ukraine, where people have been attacked by or are threatened by the Russian army.
3/8. Mayors and civic leaders in all of those American cities should be organizing campaigns of assistance. What else can "sister city" mean if not a willingness to help?
#SisterCitiesforUkraine #StandWithUkraine
4/8. Wilmington, Ohio, is collecting funds for its sister city, Merefa, whose school was destroyed by Russian shelling and whose residents are in distress.
#UkraineRussiaWar #UkraineUnderAttack #StandWithUkraine
5/8. If Wilmington, population 12,000, can show meaningful solidarity then so can every other American city with a Ukrainian sister city.
6/8. If you want to help Merefa via Wilmington, make out a check to Wilmington Yearly Meeting with Merefa as the memo, and mail to Wilmington Yearly Meeting, Pyle Center Box 1194, 1870 Quaker Way, Wilmington OH 45177
7/8. @CityOfCincy, @sccounty, Buffalo @MayorByronBrown, @chicago, @cityofbhamal, @CityofDavis... Lots of US cities have sister relationships. Help your city's campaign for #Ukraine, or start one.
8/8. If your city does not have a Ukrainian sister city, ask your mayor look for one! It is a simple way to show solidarity.

0/6 FAQ about my new #Ukraine audiobook (On Tyranny: Expanded Audio Edition)
1/6 Will the new Ukraine audiobook be available in print?
There is no text. I wasn't reading. I was speaking to you. I did this very quickly, from notes, in the form of twenty conversational lectures, sometimes ambitious intellectually, sometimes intimate and close.
2/6 Will the audiobook be available in the UK/other countries?
The audiobook will be available in the US, Canada and select other countries on April 19. There isn't yet but might be a UK edition. I guess it might depend on how many people ask that question.

1/14 My six books about #Ukraine. I am called upon to answer questions about Ukraine every day. My books, which represent a quarter century of research and thought, often do a better job than I can while speaking live or in short pieces.
2/14 I don't often mention my books on Ukraine, because I feel uneasy promoting things that cost money while people in Ukraine are suffering and dying in this horrible unjustifiable invasion. I will continue to make meaningful donations to Ukraine. If you can, I hope you will too
3/14 My book that is most immediately relevant to the Russian invasion of Ukraine is "The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America." It is a history of the 2010s that links Russia's first invasion of Ukraine (2014) to its interference in US elections (2016).

1/15 "Открытое письмо от 177 Нобелевских лауреатов" (о вторжении России в Украину, полный текст)
2/15 "Нижеподписавшиеся лауреаты Нобелевской премии выражают свою поддержку украинскому народу и свободному, независимому государству Украина перед лицом российской агрессии."
3/15 "Действиями, напоминающими печально известное нападение нацистской Германии на Польшу в 1939 году (с использованием подобных приемов симулированной провокации) и на Советский Союз в 1941 году..."

Yes, Ukrainians are tough, smart, and courageous. But they are not rich. The average family earned a tenth as much as the average American family - before the bombing. Pick a cause and donate. Please. It will make a difference.

1/8. Russia has a history of aiming for quick and decisive strikes against Ukraine, failing, then revealing the aims of the operation in media prepared on the assumption of success.
2/8. Such a sequences of events unfolded in 2014 during a Ukrainian presidential election. Russia tried to hack Ukraine's central election commission so that it would present a far-right candidate, who in fact got less than 1% of the vote, as the winner.
3/8. The hack failed, but Russian media had been prepared for its success; and Russian television went on air with falsified results and even digital images that matched what the hack was supposed to produce. (See #RoadToUnfreedom)
