Since there is no political pluralism in Russia, revolutionaries have to either live underground or voluntarily castrate themselves for the right to go online and spread their heroic narratives to society.
If I were forced to name the biggest problem with mainstream Ukrainian politics today, I’d have to say it can be summed up in one word — delusion
Russians have gotten so desperate as to pay tens of thousands of dollars to their own poorly disguised agents, just to kill a few pro-Ukrainian commentators?
The idea that Russian and Western imperialism are, for Ukraine at least, equal, is simply nonsense. Russia has invaded and occupied a significant portion of Ukrainian territory. The war that they started has killed over 10,000 Ukrainians and displaced nearly 2 million others. Did the West do that to Ukraine? No.
