As can be seen all too well now, there is no place for humanity, art, culture or science in a war. Essential things that move humanity forward on the way into the future. The civilized world had managed to live together on this planet for nearly 70 years without any major conflicts. A time in which science, art and culture could thrive. And we are now experiencing how frail and fragile peaceful coexistence can be.
Как сейчас хорошо видно, в войне нет места человечности, искусству, культуре или науке. Необходимые вещи, которые двигают человечество вперед в будущее. Цивилизованному миру удалось прожить вместе на этой планете почти 70 лет без крупных конфликтов. Время, в котором могли развиваться наука, искусство и культура. И сейчас мы на собственном опыте видим, насколько хрупким и непрочным может быть мирное сосуществование.
Zladimir I, the butcher of Grozny and Mariupol, who turned Chechnya and Ukraine into slaughterhouses.
The bad Joke of the Time
Real name, Vlad the dwarf, born 7 October 1952 in Leningrad. For 15 years he worked as an underling of the KGB in Dresden.
In 1990 he left the service (he went underground at the age of 38) when he realized the collapse of the USSR. Career fucked-up. For some time he served the Russian public as a taxi diver.
(this is a long one and there is no punch line)
Vladimir I, mass murderer, serial killer and the ruler of Russia, Bashkortostan, the Altai Republic, Chechnya, Kalmykia, Krasnoyarsk, Primorsky, Siberia and the Crimea and Kamchatka peninsulas is now busy with a special peacekeeping mission
in his newly created Russian provinces. The vertically challenged Russian strongman (sometimes posing in his bedroom with a Napoleon hat on his head) wants to change history and is willing to kill as many people as it takes to resurrect the glory of the Soviet Union (USSR). His first destination is Ukraine, the cradle of Russian identity. The people there are not enthusiastic about his plan. Thus, he had no choice but to convince the stupid peasants of that country of the wisdom of his plan - Russian style.
(Someone should tell the emperor that shelling cities is not the best way to win people over.
Fact is, almost all observers from the civilized world agree that the emperor urgently needs tutoring in history, on facts that were withheld from him during his school years in the Soviet Union.)
Anyway, the emperor had somehow misjudged his attempts to liberate the citizens of the unruly country. Instead, these same subjects had not greeted his army with cheers, but had pelted his troops with stones and even Molotov cocktails - which, of course, significantly hindered the emperor's peace mission. Now the little emperor with the big table was really angry, and he called his lackeys to dust off his rusty nuclear arsenal. And the emperor sent out an army of underlings to tell the world, that he is the victim of ungrateful subjects who sabotage his mission to save the Russian language and liberate Ukraine from the Nazis (a few decades too late).
Last night his forces seized a huge Ukrainian nuclear plant. The problem is, the Russians had already blown up a nuclear power plant in Ukraine (without intention, but a lot of stupidity), and contaminated half of Europe.
But the people in the country he wants to lead home, still want him to stay putin wherever he may be.
Now our little emperor was really pissed, his own army useless, two of his generals already killed and his 600 miles long konvoi on the way to conquer Kiev, stuck in a traffic jam.
Sitting upright in bed in the middle of the night, he was awakened by an idea. He urgently needed more personnel to fulfill his task of freeing Ukraine from the Nazis. Mercenaries!
He still had some rubles at Sberbank, or was it VTB. He would use that money to pay everyone who is able to hold a gun and is willing to kill. He placed a classified ad on Ebaz: "Looking for men who are able to hold a roosheou (ружьё/gan, no, gun!), and is willing to kill Nazis (no questions asked)."
Being offended by facts is a long human tradition.
