I think it is very unwise, all that they can achieve by this is getting their most active supporters arrested.

Maybe. Likely even, perhaps.

Navalny is forcing the EU / US's hand though. Russia will feel sanctions.  And while Germany has not been willing to comply with France's request to punish Russia by cancelling Nordstream 2 so far, I would not be surprised if that will change because of this.


Only the most active will go out at night when it is -12 C outside. Russia still has real winters.

In Siberia, thousands of people joined in the protests a few days ago, despite it being -40C outside

Yeah, that protestor got some serious beating to the back of his skull. He probably won't know his own name or what planet he lives on for a while.

In other news:

Ukrainian President ordered the blocking of three pro-Russian TV channels

I will enjoy how Russian diplomats will scream about fascism in Ukraine.

Cold War II is still going strong, I see. Quite the echo chamber you've got in here.

This forum could use a couple (dozen) actual Russians to shine a light from the other side of Western media blinds.

Surprise, surprise, Alex Salmond has formed a new party to contest against his former colleagues of the SNP. I could almost have predicted its name, too: The Alba Party

By the way, Israel recently held its fourth election to try and break their political deadlock, and now the deadlock is even worse because either of the two major coalitions would now have to include the United Arab List/Ra'am/Thunder, a conservative Islamist party.

Your choice as to if you think it's less impossible for them to coalition with Jewish conservatives and ultra-orthodox or with libs and leftists.

And Bibi is still mid-prosecution.

Yep, fifth election on the horizon and nothing to say there won't be sixth one.

At that point to make a government either someone needs to make political subside or one of the causes of the deadlock need to stop, non of this options is much likely.

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.
