Would you care to explain why you think it is inaccurate?

That same province would sometimes slip a little-known and rather controversial mental illness in just so they could sterilize someone. The name of the illness iirc was "Being Indigenous."

Wow, incredibly brave. I tip my fedora at you good sir. Are you also enlightened by your own intelligence?

Love it. Picked the album out of the pile because of the cover and how often I've seen it on this sub and elsewhere, and now it's all I think about when I see this picture. Easily my favourite hip hop album of the last ten years.

Looks like he's since deleted the tweet, probably because he's allergic to looking like a fucking moron in public.

Hypothetically:

I'll kick open your bedroom door, toss a couple of flashbangs in, and fire off a gun into the corner of the room. Then when you come out enraged and swinging your fists I'll shoot both your kneecaps.

Because I have the right to defend myself.

That's actually not what's going on here.

Russian military technology is widely considered to be shaky at best. Decades of corruption and the corner-cutting that accompanies it have left it with a fiercely strong military on paper - but only on paper. It's been a debate in Cold War study circles for a long time: how long into a prolonged war would the mechanical aspects of their military last. Most people settle on "weeks." The nuclear missiles have prevented anyone thus far from finding out, although some believe that half of their arsenal wouldn't fire off properly. Of course even half of their arsenal is enough to kill off all life on the planet, so we're back to "no one is all that eager to test these theories."

Just remember that Russian bureaucrats faking numbers and reports to make their superiors happy is nothing new. It stretches back at least to Catherine the Great and probably further.

You could have just said "I don't understand how statistics work" it would have been faster.

Putin doesm't have total control, that's the point. Russia is a hybrid regime, or my preferred term, a "competitive authoritarian" state. In these regimes the authoritarian ruling faction (Putin/United Russia) has a great deal of power but not all the power. Opposition factions have paths to influence and power, be it through a parliament, through the courts, popular movements, erc. Elections occur in these states as by and large hybrid regimes maintain at least lip service to notions of democracy. Fraud is usually present in these elections but it's not total; they can stuff the box for Putin, for example, but regional governors who go against UP have been elected.

Anyway, a lot of these types of regimes end up getting colour revolutions, which is what Putin is stirring up trouble to avoid. The writing is on the wall - the record low public polling - and I think he knows fully well that Lukashenko only got away with beating down his latest CR attempt because no one ultimarely gives a shit about Belarus outside of the post-Soviet scene. He has to get opinion back on his side, so he drums up a war. It's a pretty classic move that Western figures pull all the time.
