"The common misconception about Russia is that Putin controls all, sees all, knows all. He doesn’t. His has been a regime reliant on the buy-in of interest groups, oligarchs, and powerful clans." Nuanced, thoughtful, smart by @annanemtsova in @TheAtlantic https://t.co/23NycF486X

Today I looked up the etymological link between "canicule" (heatwave) in French and "каникулы" (holidays) in Russian. Both stem from Latin "canicula" (little dog), the old name of the star Sirius, which rises with the sun in late July-August in the Northern Hemisphere. Wonderful

More than 40 workers at Moscow's amazing Metro system were sacked for supporting Alexey #Navalny. They are now taking legal action against their employer for unfair dismissal, according to The Insider. https://t.co/yAPN7kq7Hp

Just to show what a decade can do… In 2011, the radical art collective Voina won a government sponsored award ($14k!) for a project that consisted of a 210-foot penis painted on a drawbridge in St. Petersburg which pointed at the FSB building! https://t.co/pAClWFeUSO https://t.co/ynlnufI82x

Perhaps a banal observation, but when I moved to Moscow in 2012, things were certainly tense/fraught/etc, but idea that Navalny’s entire org would be banned as extremist and state could try to kill Dmitry Bykov with poison would have struck me as a bit too hard-core to imagine.

Matt Hancock says there were “local challenges” with PPE supply but there was “never a national shortage.” What in nine separate shades of shit is that meant to mean? Maybe they didn’t have any in your hospital but we had enough.

half the products i use every day (toothpaste, shower gel etc) are made by the massive consumer groups who say they care about plastic use. but where's the progress? it makes me think startups like Smol are instead the answer

Navalny’s anti corruption foundation, political HQs have been declared ‘extremist’ in a late night court ruling, closed to public & press. Any links are now dangerous. Since the Jehovah’s Witnesses were outlawed the same way, 100s have been prosecuted & dozens are behind bars.
