I’ve tried to explain to people in the West what is actually happening in Russia but seeing is believing.— Konstantin Kisin (@KonstantinKisin) October 1, 2022

Lot of talk about Putin's speech yesterday here @yale White Christian Nationalism conference, & its emphasis on gender. Broad feeling that this speech is going to resonate through Christian nationalism globally.— Jeff Sharlet (@JeffSharlet) October 1, 2022
If something isn’t done soon to stop the endless flow of weapons to Ukraine and the constant meddling in the war by the Pentagon, the nukes are going to start flying.
“The U.S. and its NATO allies are urgently grappling with a question that once seemed to have faded along with the Cold War: Will Moscow go nuclear?
The big picture: Russian President Vladimir Putin’s nuclear threats are growing more direct as his battlefield position in Ukraine grows more precarious.
After warning last week that Russia would consider using nuclear weapons, Putin added: “This is not a bluff.” …”
Putin is vowing to use nuclear weapons to defend Russian territory.
After that big speech yesterday, Russia considers Luhansk, Donetsk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia to be part of Russia and the conflict there to be on Russian soil and a threat to Russian territorial integrity.
