RT @k_sonin: Moscow bookshelves today. Books by the best Russian authors are marked "FOREIGN AGENT" because the authors spoke against the war. A fascist practice that we watch live, not in a historical documentary. https://t.co/CvIRENDQCr

RT @ksadjadpour: When dictatorships know they're in trouble they begin promising their citizens they will change who they are. These empty promises tend to embolden, rather than quell, popular demands for fundamental change. The Iranian regime appears to be entering this stage of its life cycle.

'Kremlin rejects Biden terms for Ukraine talks' per @AFP. Super interesting response with huge downsides for Putin -- sure to isolate Russia further in G20, make it easier for WH to press for stronger EU response. Putin is more worried about flank + looking tough domestically?
