There’s gonna be generations of future scholars examining what “changed” about Putin during the pandemic. But he’s been telegraphing so much of this revanchism since the mid-2000s. Just completely feckless Western policy-makers who ignored it, or wished it away.

Not only the exact same rhetoric Putin has used about Kazakhstan (that Kazakhstan was “never a state” before 1991), but the same shit Putin’s been saying since the mid-2000s.
Replying to @maxseddon
Here's Putin. "It was Russia that created modern Ukraine by gifting it its own territories, along with the population, without asking them what they wanted. When the USSR collapsed it was the same." (Actually, there was a vote in Ukraine and independence won overwhelmingly)

I know it seems deeply embarrassing in America that a bunch of us are enraged that a black lady played a flute but in the UK a bunch of them are super agitated that it’s not immediately apparent whether a cartoon alien has a dick

Good morning. Just a friendly reminder that Eric Schmitt voted TWICE to allow Communist China to buy up 146,000 acres of Missouri farmland. Missourians deserve so much better than someone who will sell us out to the highest bidder.

If Ukraine is a World War because a major power is fighting someone backed by another major power, then Korea was WWIII, Vietnam was WWIV, Afghanistan (1980s) was WWV, and this is WWVI. Or maybe we should keep "World War" as a term for direct great power wars that span the world.
Fiona Hill, an expert on Russia, says that we are already fighting in the Third World War, whether we acknowledge it or not. “We’ve been in this for a long time, and we’ve failed to recognize it,” she said. nyer.cm/KWIkufA

As Putin illegally annexes more of Ukraine this am, a grim thought from Fiona Hill in my new column: What if we're already fighting WWIII with Russia? newyorker.com/news/letter-fr…

Who among us hasn’t held a gun to our wife’s head or threatened to slash her throat? Oh wait …
Herschel is asked about domestic violence allegations from 2001-2008 that at different times he held a gun to his wife’s head and straight razor to her throat: “You know, he without sin cast the first stone .. He’s talking about something I was a part of over 15 years ago.”

we pushed the limits of this zero-shot transfer by testing the decoder on brain responses while subjects watched silent movies, and found that the decoder accurately described many movie events. this suggests that our decoder can transfer to non-linguistic semantic tasks! (5/7)

Holy broken teeth of Christ.
very excited to share our paper on reconstructing language from non-invasive brain recordings! we introduce a decoder that takes in fMRI recordings and generates continuous language descriptions of perceived speech, imagined speech, and possibly much more biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/…

The situation around Lyman is extremely operational and changing fast for both sides. The situation will become more clear in the near future.
