I hate this little manipulation game everyone is playing where, when a company says that it's exiting the Russian market, they pretend like its products are no longer available in Russia after that.

They have all the same products and services they had before the war. Unlike Ukrainians, of course. There are plenty of products and services Ukrainians can no longer access, and who knows when they'll have them again.

Not to mention utilities that Ukrainians often lose due to Russian bombing.

Cry me some crocodile tears, you hypocrites.

Я вам більше скажу. У них там все є: інтернет, електрика, будь-яке бухло з усього світу, айфони, відеоігри, кіно, золоті годинники Омега й останні тапки Найк. Єдине, що заважає - це мобілізація, але про неї краще не думати (і не думають, бо можна відкупитися і відкосити). Пересічному росіянину взагалі похуй/поєбать на те, що його країна проводить геноцид. Коли вони стикаються з нагадуванням про це (наприклад, коли випадково стикаються з українцем в інтернеті) - це їх лякає і травмує, бо таке стається вкрай рідко. Вони цієї теми несвідомо уникають.

Божечки, а хтось пам'ятає був такий сайт аг.ру? Я щойно прочитав коментар, де воно згадувалось, і у мене руки затряслись від глибинної, древньої відрази. Це спогад з того часу, коли я ще не розумів, що будь-який ру-сегмент інтернету - це обов'язково рак і яма з токсичною отрутою, але до мене вже дійшло, що щось не так з російськомовною ігровою індустрією, і треба від неї тікати якомога далі. В результаті мене занесло до Франції))

The EU parliament has voted on the creation of a special tribunal on Russia’s crime of aggression against Ukraine.

Only 19 MEPs voted against it. Here they are: I apologize, I had to delete the previous list.

As someone pointed out in the comment, I listed the results of the wrong vote. Updating the list based on the official EU source document: europarl.europa.eu/doceo/document…

Хочу нагадати, що над цим совкодрочерством для вк плей працюють ще й українці. Цікаво, як тому тіпу з Харкова у Москві над цим працюється, поки його місто розносять на окремі цеглинки, щоб мандфіш написав, що у них є розробники з України)

It's often missed that the interests of the Russian anti-Putin opposition are only sometimes in line with the interests of Ukraine.

Wanting a bright future for Russia does not go against wanting to keep occupied territories, supply the Russian military, and cultural imperialism. Even if you say that you are against the war as a Russian opposition figure, there's a good chance that you are against it because it's not going successfully, but otherwise wouldn't have had objections.

In Russia, imperialism really does not stop at the Kremlin's gate.

Щоб ви розуміли, це зокрема і є статистика, на яку дивляться видавці, коли приймають рішення про локалізацію. Ніхто не думає про геополітику або політику загалом. Ніхто не дивиться на санкційні списки, не занурюється в історичний контекст, не розбирається в демографічній ситуації, результатах виборів і соціології.

Дивляться на наявний ринок, беруть бюджет й ділять на вартість перекладу.

Where does this opinion actually come from? Navalny has never actually held office, and his rhetoric as an activist contains nothing about anti-imperialism. Moreover, we know his ideology is extreme-right Russian ethnonationalism. He is not useful for Ukraine. Each significant Russian opposition figure has a public record, and well-documented research exists into their position on Ukraine.

Navalny is not an exception here. I will translate a couple of conclusions from the page about him.

I could write a long thread about why 2022 was the worst year of my entire life, but I know so many people for whom it was much worse. Russia exists with a singular purpose of ruining our lives.

But it was also a year of clarity, resolve, and unity. We’re keeping those. As I’m writing this, so many are in the trenches, in the hospitals, and in Russian torture chambers. None of them chose this.

I’m under no illusion about 2023 bringing an end to the war and genocide. But each of us now knows what we can do to help. We’re in it for the long haul.

Stop translating stuff into Russian when trying to communicate with Ukrainians abroad.

1. There aren't any Ukrainians that don't understand Ukrainian. Not a thing.
2. For a lot of Ukrainians, Russian is a trigger.
3. Yes, most Ukrainians understand it. It's beside the point. The language thing is weird to most foreigners, so here are a few everyday facts about Ukraine:

- Ukrainians generally don't switch languages when one of them speaks Russian and the other speaks Ukrainian
- Ukrainians from Ukraine usually understand both perfectly well

Russians threw sledgehammers at the Finnish embassy in Moscow, referencing the Wagner group's extrajudicial executions with a sledgehammer.

You can deduce the meaning of this. Real Cosa Nostra stuff. Exhibit 1

TVORCHI are fantastic, and I am glad that they will represent Ukraine at Eurovision. Not unlike Kalush, they aren't a one-trick pony, either.

Much like with Kalush, their Eurovision entry (below), although excellent, is not my favorite track of theirs.

A few years ago, my Ukrainian colleague at Remedy sent me this video on Slack saying, "holy shit, they make music like this in Ukraine, wow!"

All Russian talk of “peace” is strategic maneuvering.

They are losing on the battlefield, so they resort to propaganda, ruse, threats, and terror attacks.

It’s quite obvious, actually, but if you don’t follow Russia’s rhetoric and the war, you might get duped. Russia pursues 3 goals here:

1. Win time to train and arm the newly mobilized troops.

2. Halt weapon supplies to Ukraine by painting Ukrainians as “warmongers.”

3. If it goes really bad for Russia, freeze the front for the long term, prepare for a new invasion in a few years.
