Riot police in Moscow seem to be arresting anyone and everyone now. Here they are just grabbing a random lady from a bus stop.

На улице Варварка в Москве лютуют полицейские. Они задержали ни в чем не повинную женщину, сидевшую на остановке «Я на остановке жду! Я на остановке жду, ребят!» — кричала она, пока ее под руки вели в автозак. 📹: SOTA

my family was just forced to vote at gunpoint in russian cosplay of a “referendum” in southern ukraine: - they come to your house - you have to openly tick the box for being annexed by russia (or for staying with ukraine if you feel suicidal) - all while armed gunmen watch you

The people who have the resources are fleeing the draft. The fighting, as always, will be done by those who don’t.

Monday night in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. 88% of hotels and guesthouses are fully booked. 97% of hostels are full. I guess the Russians have arrived.

"Putin...has thrust himself more directly into strategic planning for the war in Ukraine in recent weeks...including rejecting requests from his commanders on the ground that they be allowed to retreat from the vital southern city of Kherson"

The White House switchboard connected a call to a rioter while the Capitol was under siege on January 6, 2021, according to former January 6 committee staffer Denver Riggleman. “I only know one end of that call,” Riggleman said.

Thinking about this, and also thinking about how I often read people in my timeline — literally thousands of miles away from the front line — calling the Russian conscripts “orcs” and such. Just a reminder that war is terrible and dehumanizing the enemy is rarely a good look.

Mobilisation is worrying many Russians. But not Vera: “I’d be much happier if my son got wounded fighting in Ukraine than die of alcoholism here,” she tells me. Our latest report from Moscow as the draft continues. Producer @BBCWillVernon Cameras @AntonChicherov @LizaVereykina

When Bolsheviks, who were in the minority of the Russian Socialist Party, named themselves Bolsheviks, meaning they were the majority faction, it was a sly marketing maneuver. It seems the "realists" have done the same, claiming ownership of reality when they scarcely grasp it.

Realists have been fond of saying that Ukraine is more important to Russia than to the West, and therefore Russia has escalation dominance. This analysis elides an important point: Ukraine is even more important to Ukrainians than to Russians.
