Kherson liberation chronicles, from Ukrainian social media: When soldiers enter to clear a village that was occupied by Russia and a local girl comes out with a violin to play the Ukrainian anthem.

The Russians flattened Mariupol pretty much the same way that they flattened Grozny in Chechnya. It’s not the Chechens or Buryats who flew planes and dropped bombs on the city’s maternity hospital or a theater full of civilians.
The Pope’s remarks on Ukraine, in which he singles out Russian ethnic minorities, doesn’t name Putin, and says that those most cruel are “not of the Russian tradition” are surprising. The worst atrocities are being committed by troops very much of the Russian tradition.

I would put the UK, Canada, Netherlands in the second camp.
Two camps / schools of thought: - Russia must not win / Ukraine must not lose (US, Germany, France) - Russia must be defeated / Ukraine must win (dominant in Central Europe, Scandinavia)

Meanwhile in Russia: top propagandists and their friends in high places are getting worried about the possibility of losing the war to Ukraine and being tried at the Hague.

Mykolaiv was without potable water for months because the pumping station was in Russian-occupied Kherson. It was repaired in recent weeks, following the liberation of Kherson, and ready for use. Then Russia bombed it and destroyed it. Moscow’s war on Ukrainian civilians goes on.

This must be the most highly educated group of demonstrators in the world. Friedmann equations, freed man...
Students from the elite school Tsinghua University protested with Friedmann equation. I have no idea what this equation means, but it does not matter. It's the pronunciation: it's similar to "free的man" (free man)—a spectacular and creative way to express, with intelligence.

People in Iran are braving bullets to protest for women’s rights. People in China are on the streets calling for freedom. The only recent protests I have seen in Russia is by people who complain they haven’t been given sufficiently good weapons and equipment to go kill Ukrainians

Poland's current account deficit is actually narrowing. Exports of car components up (German demand). The message that Poland will go bankrupt because of arms purchases is stretching it imho. think.ing.com/snaps/poland-u…

Just come in. As a relay, at this moment hundreds of students are gathering on the campus of Tsinghua University (one of the tops in China) chanting “ freedom of expression democracy rule of law”, after dozens of such gatherings seen on campuses nationwide over past two days.

Belarus foreign minister Makey died suddenly, a day after meeting a Vatican envoy. He used to be touted as a possible liberal successor to Lukashenko. I spent an hour with him in 2019. He told me that Belarus seeks “equidistance” from Russia and the West. How things have changed.

You couldn't make it up. Angela Merkel praises Neville Chamberlain(!) in a Spiegel interview, saying that she bought time for Ukraine by rejecting them for NATO membership at Bucharest 08 like Chamberlain bought time at Munich.

Russia is systematically trying to murder the most vulnerable of a European nation. The question can be asked once again, “Where are the Good Russians?”
Kyiv. The parents drove to the petrol station to plug in the inhaler needed for the child.

Here in Kyiv there’s no power or water in much of the city and streets are filled with the hum of mobile gen­er­ators powering kiosks, flower stores and cof­fee stalls. After a week in the south I was surprised by how bad things in the capital have become wsj.com/articles/ukraine-scr…

Incredible that Anwar Ibrahim is finally PM, aged 75, after years in jail on politically motivated charges. A double-blow for his long time adversary/mentor Mahathir, who lost his seat at the election. Big challenges ahead for Anwar's new coalition reuters.com/world/asia-pacif…

If Moldova had the political will, it could probably clear out the Russian military in Transnistria with Ukrainian help in a couple of days, restoring the territorial integrity it lost in 1992. Attacks like today’s make it more likely.
