Is it all legal?

It’s an order of magnitude more legal than invading another country.

Is Putin a war criminal?


The truth is sometimes hard to believe. But at least there is a chance when we tell it.

There’s a war in Ukraine
В Украине идёт война

Sorry for this email out of the blue.

As you may already know, there's a war going on. There is also an information war.

Russian media claims that the special operation only concerns military targets and that there are "nazis" is charge in Ukraine. The reality is that the Russian Army is shooting and bombing civilians. And there are no nazis, just a nation that wants to get on with their lives.

I don't expect you to believe a stranger. But if you'd like to see the real stories and images "from the other side", check out this Telegram channel

I don't speak Russian well (someone helped to write this) but you can always write me if you have questions.

Извините, что пишу вам ни с того ни с сего.

Как вы, возможно, уже знаете, идет война неотъемлемой частью которой является также информационная война.

Российские СМИ утверждают, что спецоперация касается только военных объектов и что в Украине истребляют «фашистов». Реальность такова, что российская армия бомбит и расстреливает мирных жителей. Нет никаких нацистов, просто народ, которая хочет жить своей жизнью.

Я не жду, что вы поверите незнакомцу, но если вы хотите увидеть реальные истории и изображения «с другой стороны», загляните в этот Telegram-канал

Я плохо говорю по-русски (мне помогли написать это), но вы всегда можете написать мне, если у вас возникнут вопросы.
