Russian “experts” now casually discussing the inevitability of nuclear war on state tv. This clown’s theory (Americans will nuke Kyiv and persuade allies it was the Russians to rally a further response) is so batshit that even the host gets confused.
All companies in #Russia, including of course Western companies, are required to assist the authorities during mobilization. Unless Western firms immediately retreat from Russia, they become directly complicit in Russia's criminal war against #Ukraine - if they like it or not. twitter.com/jakluge/status…

The big question: whose Crimea really is? When USSR collapsed, everyone, even Putin, recognized Crimea as Ukrainian. In 2014 🇷🇺occupied it and claimed its Russian. Looks like it’s time to remind where the Ukrainian borders are. Check out a brief story of Crimea by @United24media.

Russian military tortured Ukrainians in basements in Izyum.
Mykhailo Ivanovych, 67, survived electric shocks, beatings, broken bones and needles under his skin.
He said he was tortured for 12 days. Russians broke his arm, beat him with pipes, sticks and feet.
I met with State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi to discuss relations between Ukraine and China. My counterpart reaffirmed China’s respect for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as its rejection of the use of force as a means of resolving differences.
Ukrainian soldier Mykhailo Dianov is among the fortunate ones: in contrast with some of his fellow POWs, he survived russian captivity. This is how russia “adheres” to the Geneva Conventions. This is how russia continues the shameful legacy of Nazism.
