Russia's stooge Alexander Fomin in Kherson declared Henichesk the "temporary" capital of Kherson Oblast after the occupiers left the City of Kherson. I think he got the "temporary" right.

And more right than he knew. The occupation administration now describes Fomin as a "former staffer" who had no authority to make such a claim, and says no decisions about relocating the capital have been officially approved.

As it turns out, Henichesk (also transliterated as Henychesk) was where a brave Ukrainian woman confronted Russian soldiers, as shown in the video linked in this post.

She not only offered them sunflower seeds to put in their pockets so they would grow when "they all lie down," she put a curse on them.

No, no, this is no place for an occupation government's regional capital...

Russia has solved the problem of such occurrences, with their soldiers creating mass graves of civilians of a neighboring nation with bound hands. In a just world, such soldiers and more importantly their leadership will get their chance to fertilize Ukraine's fields, soon.

The saddest thing, in my mind, is Russia was once our ally.

"Their boys", to use the language of the day, fought hard.

This game currently being played makes absolutely no sense to me. But, then, I'm not on that pay scale.

What just world?
Isn't that an oxymoron?

The saddest thing is actually that you don't understand that U.S.S.R. ≠ Russia.
Many of "their boys" were Ukrainians, Kazakhs, Armenians, Georgians (including one Joseph Stalin), Byelorussians, Lithuanians, and on and on.

Use "G-Translate" to your language for this video, the results are fairly decent.

The gist of it is: if you don't pick up your garbage and instead remove all pesticides and all cleaning for your house - your can count on rats colonizing your house.
Similarly, if you don't do anything special, only burn out with hot iron all independent thought, and promote folks who kiss their superiors' asses, - you will get fascism, and as Russia's experience shows all you need is 20-25 years and there you have it, full blown.
It is not hard to achieve. Fascism (like vacuum) is a simple ground state, the floor, to get it - you simply have to do (nearly) nothing. Fascism is easy to cultivate in any given (autocratic) country. Just follow those simple rules.

The familiar quotation, "Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom" seems apropos. It is usually attributed to Thomas Jefferson, despite the apparent lack of evidence that he ever said or wrote this. There are similar quotations going back to the early Nineteenth Century.

We also have the following, which originated during my own lifetime, and which I have posted before.
Quote:
I had also hoped that the white moderate would reject the myth concerning time in relation to the struggle for freedom. I have just received a letter from a white brother in Texas. He writes: "All Christians know that the colored people will receive equal rights eventually, but it is possible that you are in too great a religious hurry. It has taken Christianity almost two thousand years to accomplish what it has. The teachings of Christ take time to come to earth." Such an attitude stems from a tragic misconception of time, from the strangely irrational notion that there is something in the very flow of time that will inevitably cure all ills. Actually, time itself is neutral; it can be used either destructively or constructively. More and more I feel that the people of ill will have used time much more effectively than have the people of good will. We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people. Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability; it comes through the tireless efforts of men willing to be co workers with God, and without this hard work, time itself becomes an ally of the forces of social stagnation.

Thank you for that. Sincerely.

High bandwidth; almost all signal.

I keep thinking to myself how lucky I am to have been born when and where (and with whom) I was.

I understand the importance of experimentation. But when it comes to lives (particularly humans), I find it sad when the kindest path is not taken.
