@VHansenYear1000: Just back from a week in Vietnam, and loved the History Museums in Hanoi and Saigon (where this statue is on display). Both have wonderful Óc Eo material. I've never seen such beautiful wooden statues from the 5th C CE. Really extraordinary. https://t.co/Rp2e0FoRSm

@kamilkazani: The best possible endgame is:

Independent & united Siberia inheriting all the Russian nuclear arsenal, including the nuclear fuel, warheads and delivery systems. The bulk of the production facilities is located on its territory anyway https://t.co/ZsKIIsmPLP

@OptimoPrincipi: The balance and harmony of the Pantheon. Equal in height and diameter, the building's rotunda creates a perfect sphere measuring 43.2 metres (150 Roman feet). The Pantheon, completed in 126 AD, still holds the record for the world's largest unreinforced concrete dome. https://t.co/w0Ihak1suX

@kamilkazani: Let's sum up:

1. @navalny's remarks are not incidental. They reflect consistent ultranationalist vision
2. There's no sign of him being "reformed". While occasionally apologising for slurs, he claims his views haven't changed
3. He stopped trashtalking, that's how he changed

@kamilkazani: @navalny's geopolitics. That's how he justified aggression against Georgia. Interestingly enough, Navalny's anti-Georgian rhetorics is surprisingly similar to Putin's anti-Ukrainian one. In particular, he described Saakashvili as "Hitler"/"Georgiahitler"

@kamilkazani: Another example

1. Moscow cultural elites know Navalny is "not bad" (= not bad *for them*)
2. They select facts and construct arguments to support Not Bad Navalny theory
3. Through their Western connections, their POV becomes Western POV

They fully shape the Western opinion

@kamilkazani: Example

1. Moscow cultural elites know that disintegration of empire is against their interest
2. They claim this scenario "makes no sense" (=against our interest) and look for arguments against
3. Through their Western connections, Moscow perspective becomes Western perspective

@kamilkazani: As a result, the dominant Western discourse on Russia is being infected by all the prejudices, biases and the (semi)conscious class interest of a narrow social circle whom the Western cultural elites draw their opinions from

@kamilkazani: Discourse on Russia = the wildly overrepresented circle of Moscow cultural elites with good Western connections + the silent, voiceless, unrepresented empire. And I don't mean just the ethnic periphery, I mean everything that is neither Moscow, nor St Petersburg

@AnonOpsSE: No immigrant has taken your job. You were laid off by a capitalist who required cheap labor and took advantage of that immigrant to increase his profits, and nothing makes them happier than to hear you blame the immigrant and not them.

@kamilkazani: Russian "liberal opposition" shares Putin's imperialist philosophy with all its basic premises. They just use different shibboleths but that's it. There's no indication they would change the course except for the wishful thinking of too many Western journalists and politicians

@kamilkazani: Rearmament of the Russian military industry based on the technological import from the West scaled up once Putin took power. Local peaks were reached around 2007 and 2013. Most recent escalation of import started in 2019 and continues till 2022 with the Covid interruption in 2020 https://t.co/UVcXXAIBjp

@kamilkazani: More importantly, European businesses continue arming Russia right now and (certain) national governments do nothing about it. Well, that's how you get a long war that will eventually impoverish you. The more you arm Russia, the longer the war lasts and the poorer you will end up
