Only Ukraine has. Take a look at Putin’s warning to the US and Europe just moments ago - it is terrifying and you gotta be naive thinking that any sanctions will work. He dares us to interfere, he dares nato to interfere - that is his goal so he can then “respond” accordingly. Unlike western democracies - humane civil societies, nothing is off the table for putin. When he conquered Crimea - there were no consequences, one might say he even got rewarded with a pipeline contract. We are witnessing what happens when evil is not held accountable. it becomes stronger and more evil.

themselves and the world. Putin's lies must be exposed to the Russian people. I just don't think most of them know the truth.
May Trump and Putin both go down in flames for their evil deeds.

The ones that don’t support him etc. but lets see what happens. Many probably feign support.

All day I have been singing the "I Hate Putin" song that I made up. The lyrics are mostly profanity.

It seems like this has all been happening in slow motion, like we've been skirting the event horizon of a black hole that has finally captured us and is tearing us asunder as it swallows us up. And if it feels that bad for us, just think of how the Ukrainians feel. I hope there is something we can do to help them and keep the Russians from being successful. In my world, this would end with Putin's head on a pike. Please, dear God, let it be so!
