Sorry to quote my book, but I think this might be useful for those who still hope “to talk things out” with Putin.

A number of apartment buildings hit last night in #Zaporizhzhia. RU say they target barracks of the “nationalists”. Take a look. #StandWithUkraine️ #ArmUkraineNow

Free public polls, before the Russian invasion in 2014, showed the majority in Donbas was not supporting separatism. Russia armed and pushed a minority of separatists, then sent its army when their rebellion failed. tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1…

Taira, a Ukrainian combat medic, has seen firsthand people dying in captivity because of insufficient medical care or torture. She calls for the global community to hold Russia accountable and provide the care everyone deserves. #UnitedWithUkraine

The true story of the “Carol of the Bells”. A.k.a. Ukrainian folk song “Schedryk”. #StandWithUkraine
100 years ago on this day ‘Carrol of the Bells’ — or ‘Schedryk’ as we call it in Ukraine — premiered in North America. Ukrainian People's Republic’s Koshyts Capella performed it in @CarnegieHall as part of Ukraine’s cultural diplomacy. @UA_Institute and @Ukrainer tell the story👇

⚡️Ukraine liberates more settlements in Kherson, Luhansk oblasts. President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Oct. 5 that over the last 24 hours, Ukraine had liberated Novovoskresenske, Novohryhorivka, and Petropavlivka villages in Kherson Oblast.

Sham referenda at gunpoint. Illegal attempts to seize land from a sovereign country. Violations of the UN Charter. The United States will never recognize Russia’s purported annexation. We will stand with Ukrainians as they defend their territory for as long as it takes.

A TV propagandist crying on live broadcast, as he couldn’t enlist. “How can I go on living, if someone else but not me fights for RU??? And if you don’t want to fight - God will take revenge on you!!! Read the Bible!” What a freak. #NaziRussia #StandWithUkraine

“Russia sent slaves to liberate freemen” On @TalkTV today with @iancollinsuk I was asked why Ukraine was doing so well. 3 things: Western support was critical to keep them in the game Ukrainians are better trained, including by the Brits But biggest difference moral & bravery
As Ukrainian forces recapture annexed areas of Ukraine, former adviser to the Ukrainian foreign minister Cormac Smith says Russia has "miscalculated" its population. "The middle class boys in St Petersburg do not want to be fed into the meat grinder." @iancollinsuk | @cormacs63

Moscow officially offered Europe the gas supply through the “Nord Stream 2” pipeline – Putin's personal project. "They did not want to agree on good terms, so we will make them do that" – de facto say Russians. Are there any doubts about left about who sabotaged the Baltic Sea?

So Putin just just sits down and signs a decree claiming a nuclear power plant in Ukraine as Russian property. Just like that. And then calls this a preemptive defensive war against the West.
