[Politics] Russia invades Ukraine (24/02/2022)


Feb 1, 2009
At this point the arrest warrant is largely symbolic. But it formally reinforces that he is an international pariah and that will help to increasingly isolate him and make him an outcast. In practice, it might make it more awkward for some countries to continue to sit on the fence over Ukraine.
So I think it will make life a bit more uncomfortable for Putin ( good) but I doubt he will care too much and he’ll retrench and sadly survive for sometime yet: I think it will take a terminal illness to solve the problem and we just have to hope it happens soon.
Yes, at the moment it is but a pin-prick - but nonetheless a positive one. These things mount up - slowly to be sure, and probably he'll die of old age first. It's still laying down a marker.
Hopefully, of course, he'll just die soon.

Not all the while they donate to the Conservative party
I hear this a lot on NSC, According to these articles Russian donations totalled £2m ish in the 3 years Johnson was leader.while annual income is £41m (don’t know what it was then). Doesn’t seem that significant a percentage.

Labour Party total income was 50 % higher than that of the Tories which was quite a surprise given received wisdom.
