Launching a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine means starting an air war with Russia. The risks are incalculable.
First, let’s remind ourselves of the catastrophic global consequences of the last one.
Most of the leaders of the alt-right are scrambling to distance themselves from Vladimir Putin. It might be too late.
What started as an anti-authoritarian uprising became a brutal international proxy war. However many years pass, the solution remains the same.
Anarchists in Ukraine and Russia are not fans of any states. But they’re against the Russian war on the Ukrainian state.
If Putinism is victorious in Ukraine, it will set a horrific precedent not only for other territorial grabs but also other attacks on democracy.
The power of sports to legitimize a regime also means they have the power to delegitimize one, too.
The number of people forcibly displaced by war, persecution, general violence, or human-rights violations last year swelled to a staggering 84 million.
Vladimir Putin is the Franco of today, and Ukraine must become the graveyard of Putinism.
Like the last tsar, Putin’s delusions of grandeur bely his military missteps, economic mismanagement, and imperial blind spots.
