    I just think we should suspend judgment on Boris until we have all the facts through an inquiry, police investigation, and parliamentary commission.

    One of the more difficult reads I've had in a while. A field study in cognitive dissonance, deeply unsettling but fascinating. I think what's needed the most towards Russians is empathy and support, but I'm finding it next to impossible to muster any.

    I think the problem there is a lot of them don't experience cognitive dissonance because they're being fed state propaganda on such a grand scale.

    A somewhat (not entirely, obv.) comparable situation exists here where the media is dominated by right-wing newspapers, which is why I can't really be angry at people who think refugees in dinghies are overrunning the country, or that Brexit is a good idea. They keep hearing the same messages over and over and eventually it becomes almost hard-wired into their minds.

    Finland announces decision to apply to join NATO.

    Putin calculating if he still has time to lose the war in Ukraine, pull out and invade Coccoland.

    You can find any pattern you want to any level of precision you want, if you're prepared to ignore enough data.

    We shouldn't forget Georgia.

    People forget that Georgia and Ukraine both wanted to join, but Germany objected because it might hurt Putin's feelings. Oops.

    Well not really, we're likely months away from article 5 guarantees. I'm relieved the application's in, even though I don't see any short-term military threat from Russia. However, this should protect us for decades to come, no matter what happens or who's in charge there, the geography isn't gonna change.

    They've not had many timid leaders in their history that's for sure.

    Not a very comfortable place to be I'd imagine.

    Though, one might also imagine the Russians wouldn't be very comfortable tripping over the 100k+ Russian graves from '39-40.

    Have to say this is the first time in my lifetime I've really had to think about it. I suppose it's the same as eg. living next to the San Andreas fault, or people living next to an active volcano. It's always been there and nothing bad has happened, yet, so it must be safe.

    Some info about Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of Russia's Security Council, former KGB and one of the likeliest candidates to replace Putin.

    He sounds like Putin with a little extra batshit thrown in for good measure. Great.
