  • Not she of NZ?
    maybe my comment wasn't very well thought out.
    Humans are the problem

  • It is an inconvenience but they will just go to Macau, Dubai and anywhere else East.

    It's not the same.

    It's almost too late now, but you could have a meaningful and very powerful asset freeze, followed by a thorough evidencing of source of funds.

    If that had been done swiftly in a unified manner it would be be exceptionally painful.

    The US effectively unwound Switzerlands long history of banking secrecy overnight through strong arm tactics.

    We had the same opportunity in relation to vast swathes of Russia wealth. Our government has just chosen not to.

  • Moscow suspends trading.

    Rosneft -58%
    Sberbank -57%
    Gazprom -54%

    None of these countries look as nice as Europe on instagram. Plus some russian tourists are annoying as fuck.

    Just an opinion but I don't think it will be a susatained crash, unless truly serious sanctions happen which I don't think will happen.

    Fun fact. BP own 20% of Rosneft. Will be interesting to see how expoosed BP are to sanctions.

  • EU threatening 'massive' sanctions. Expect UK to follow, so another 3 Russians should be worried.

  • This guy on twitter has some amazing (also disturbing) footage and info

  • I don't have anything to add other than registering disgust, horror, and fear. Solidarity to all innocent people caught up in this war.

  • I want to get in on this one as well. Cant believe this is happening in 2022.

  • Just wondering at the chances that this might be the beginning of the end for Putin? Surely he's overestimating his own soldier's willingness to fight in Ukraine? They may have done a decent job in Syria thinking they were saving the world from ISIS. (Although they bombed plenty of innocent civilians too). But I doubt very many of them will buy his claim that the Kyiv leadership is a 'junta', so I just can't see them fighting with the same gusto as they did in Syria.
    The argument against this being the end for Putin's leadership is that nobody seems to think there is anyone else out there that Russia could rally around as their next leader.

  • I just hope Putin himself dont believe its the end of him because then god help us.

  • I think the end of Putin can only come from him dying or a Democratic movement in Russia, that’s what he fears the most

  • The argument against this being the end for Putin's leadership is that nobody seems to think there is anyone else out there that Russia could rally around as their next leader.

    I want to believe it's and end of Putin, but it seems that opposition in Russia's government is nonexistent - ones who want to change status quo get silenced or disappear on mysterious circumstances.

    I also don't believe there's much democracy going on, everybody in top positions are people Putin trusts and it's essentially like a mobster state. The head might change but it will probably remain the same.

  • He's not going to go out peacefully though is he. We'll all be in flames before he steps away.

  • Bidens rules out US forces which is probably wise from an escalation point of view.

  • ^nsfw, graphic

  • Thank f it’s Biden and not trump

  • Trump would have sent troops already. Not on the Ukrainian side, though.

  • Please don't be posting photos of dead bodies without some sort of warning.

  • Should there be more sanctions against Belarus? I saw a video that suggested Belorussian troops and armour were in the fight, rather than merely allowing their territory to be used as a jump-off.
