That notorious RIA Novosti article has been translated in full into English. As naked an endorsement of genocide as you'll read in a state-owned media organ:
What happened in the primary? Beto O’Rourke proposed $1.5 trillion in new federal spending on climate change and a 30-year timeline to reach net zero emissions and got attacked from the left — a move that attracted praise as savvy politics by Sunrise. slowboring.com/p/what-was-the…
Something I think about is Trump was recorded saying he sometimes does sexual assault and then a bunch of women said “yeah, that’s true, he did that to me” and then he won the election and now you’d be considered a tedious crank if you act like these charges are a big deal.
Anyone using the United States as the standard for appropriate behavior has lost the thread anyway. We’re the world’s policeman; pulling people over on a pretext, planting drugs and shooting them if they protest when we impound their car
seems like overkill to buy a 64-pack of Pixel Coke when you could just buy a single Sprite instead https://t.co/tZ2rAJukzW
Coca-Cola has unveiled a new, limited-edition flavor that's supposed to taste like...pixels. Yes, pixels. It's fitting, then, that customers' first glimpse of the pixel-inspired beverage wasn't in the real world, but in the video game Fortnite. https://t.co/iWr0b5mReG
Can someone give some money to hire a couple more research assistants?
The increase of evidence of Russian equipment loss has grown so much in the last few days that @oryxspioenkop is having trouble keeping up. https://t.co/JEFY8PQAmB https://t.co/dhiAdKgfCK

Read the transcript of what the Russian ambassador said at the U.N. It's as batshit as it gets; Ginny Thomas-meets-Alex Jones stuff. But if the part of his rant that claims they've taken 600k Ukrainians including 119k children to Russia is actually true, that's a mass kidnapping.
I mean that I support the funneling of weapons to Ukraine, a country that is using those weapons to fend off an unprovoked invasion by its larger neighbor Russia. I do not favor a ~~policy~~ of regime change vis a vis Russia, but the regime there is bad.
When someone declares they "stand with" Ukraine, consider asking them to clarify what exactly that means. Because in practice, it's meant an enormous US weapons-funneling operation with no end in sight, massive new military spending, indefinite proxy warfare, and regime change
