  • I meant that anyone saying the wrong thing on line in Russia itself could face severe consequences. So people are careful what they say and may not display true opinions.

  • Russians are pretty knowledgeable as far as VPNs and using anonymous accounts go. So if they want to say something online they can. The thing is they get their social media fix from Telegram groups so not many are active in english speaking sites. Responses we see come from bots. I sometimes wonder if they send a Novichok package if you argue with them succesfully. Another phenomenom are tankies which can be just as irritating.

  • Not sure how strict the ban is - I have some Russian friends back from Erasmus days who live in Russia and keep sharing their life just as they used to. Using a VPN to post some selfies from a road trip is one thing but your profile is out there on the internet but I guess if they don't post or comment anything "special operation" related, they're safe.

    There definitely is a bunch of bots forming the public opinion via social media, though.

    I'm quite happy with this recent thing going on with Finland asking Russians to sign some papers, condemning the war, otherwise they're not getting in.

    I dream of going to an extreme of this narrative and not allowing any entry to any Russian citizen who want to enter the EU (unless you're fleeing for good).

    It's beyond my understanding how can a person go shopping to Europe while their country is slaughtering civilians in a neighbouring country and on their TV any country in the west is portrayed as an absolute evil. Why come here then?

  • It’s human nature to ignore, deny, and dissociate from horrible things, including those done “in their name”.

  • She loves Russia but prefers to be anywhere else.

  • In the end it's always average people who suffer the most.

  • So seems it's swung from Ukraine plan large summer Kherson counter offensive to Russia plan huge new offensive from Zaporizhzhia to Kherson. Can't work out of this is just media reframing what's about to come or two separate events have come together

  • Maybe she could have a gofundme to hire her own private jet.
    Oligarch princesses can’t mingle with the serfs you know.
