Excited to hear about Hungarian state of emergency from the many many Fox personalities who warned that Canada had slid into dictatorship during its 9-days of removing blockading trucks from streets of the nation's capital

Alexei Navalny condemned Vladimir Putin's war as stupid: "You will suffer a historic defeat in this stupid war that you started. It has no purpose or meaning. Why are we fighting a war?" He said it was "like your courts, built entirely on lies".

Just did the most distinguished panel of my life w mayors of Bucha, Melitopol, Mariupol (online) and head of Kyiv regional civ-mil administration. Have never felt more meaningless and humbled as an academic. Bigger point: compromise, saving Putin's face, offramping are a delusion
