Riot police in Moscow today (at least 1,853 people arrested at antiwar protests around Russia yesterday)

Perhaps it is just better to be still at home till all of this dies out then end up in jail as enemy of the state. Which is probably worst than the little freedom they have.  Better some then none. Desperation does nothing to the soul.

Maria de Luz weitting has said before that war will be short.

Yesterday Russian Pow or prisoner of war  soldiers are also being caught lost of simply captured. Russian medic video decorded asking for directions.

“If [Russian President Vladimir Putin] did move into NATO countries, we will be involved,” Biden said Thursday afternoon. “The good news is NATO is more united and more determined than ever.”
