This thread is meant to be a place to leave thoughts and feelings about the current political situation around Ukraine. Feel free to discuss the matter. If you can provide sources explaining the situation and motivations of individual parties in an unbiased way, feel free to share those as well.

Upfront notice:

We expect every one of you to respect each other and keep this discussion civil. This is an extremely emotional, hard to grasp topic and not a few of us here are or will be personally affected by these events. Listen to each other and remember that a state is a political entity and not a collective of synchronized minds.

Any "Fuck X" or similar statements will be removed and we will give warnings and time-outs to anyone failing to contribute more than polemic. Please take this situation as serious as it is for the people involved.

following a leak from another US funded bio laboratory

I'm almost certain I'm feeding a troll here, but let's consider this an experiment.

You might be interested in this study and this one. They are both pre-prints, pending peer review, but they use two different approaches to narrowing down the origin of SARS-CoV-2 and they both come to simlar conclusions. As does every other scientific investigation I have read to this date.
Unfounded claims of what you seem to call "bio laboratories" being the origin are just that: unfounded. Or, in layman's terms: bullshit.

This does make a bit more sense of the situation, especially in regards to the control of oil and water in the region, which I wasn't aware of:



Excellent video! Thanks for sharing!

Well, I sent some money to Ukraine through the Estonian arm of Red Cross today. I hope it helps. If any Ukrainians or anyone else knows of a better way to send help LET ME KNOW IN THE PMs PLEASE!!! I have Ukrainian friends and co-workers. I have Russian friends and co-workers. I am afraid what I don't have is any clever worlds to say on this topic. Wish I did, but I guess it wouldn't ultimately matter much anyway. All the brave Ukrainians fighting, all the refugees, you are my brothers and sisters. All Russians who oppose this illegal war in action or in their hearts, you are my brothers and sisters. I embrace you all. You are welcome in Estonia, you are welcome in my town and in my home. I fucking mean that. My house is small and I am not rich, but knock on the door and it won't be shut in your face, I swear. One day we'll all sit side-by-side, share a drink and shed a tear over the atrocities currently happening and we'll say: "Never again" and we'll mean it and we'll make it so.

I hope the site's rules will overlook this one-time of non-English, when I say: Слава Україні! And my deepest respect and admiration to all the Russian people who oppose the aggression and protest against it on the streets of Russian cities and towns. You all possess a level of courage that I can only dream of achieving.

IMPORTANT: If there are any Ukrainians in Estonia in need of a place to stay, in need of any assistance that is within my power to provide: PM me!

(insert Thunderous Applause gif here)

Well said, PM me if anyone takes you up on the offer. I'm certainly not rich, but will gladly bypass some craft beer for a week or two to help a muthatrucka out. If you have PayPal or GoogleWallet can kick a few $$ your way to help.

And, who knows, if the world comes out of clown world mode, Covid fades away, this war is resolved, and my wife and i re-schedule the World Trip we had planned for 2020, beer is on me if you can make it to Tallinn.

Draconian have canceled their concerts in Moscow and St.-P.

As our hearts go out in solidarity to the people of Ukraine in these troubling times we have decided to cancel our November dates in Russia until further notice. Please, note this is not a boycott against Russia as such. We are well aware of the fact Russia’s atrocious military actions against Ukraine does not reflect on our fan-base and our partners, or the Russian people as a whole. Yet, taking into account the particulars and the overall uncertainty of the situation, this appears the best option as we move forward until things have deescalated.

We’ll always stand against war, oppression and authoritarianism.
We stand with Ukraine and its people.

Stay safe out there, brothers and sisters

Love,
DRACONIAN & team

Apparently, Putin wants to reinstate Yanukovych as president of Ukraine.

So, we back to 0 fighting all over Euromaidan in 2014 tussle between US and Russia whose pro-govt needs to install to operate Ukraine.

Imagine a world in which all diplomacy was done by children attending international tea parties, and sent the aging populace to do battle with canes and walkers, while regularly wagering their candies on which miracle viagra pill will give an old goat or battleaxe the right pep to settle disputes.
I dare say, that may just be entertaining.

Either Satire designed to invigorate the imaginations of others as to how frivolous the reasons for war are amid the disastrous and destructive consequences, the ramblings of a madman.. or the next evolution of mankind.
