Foreign Policy (gated but easy to get around)

A Russian Dissident Is Sentenced in Moscow

Ilya Yashin’s is the most significant political trial in Russia since Alexey Navalny’s imprisonment in 2021.





Russian opposition figure Ilya Yashin, charged with "discrediting" the Russian army fighting in Ukraine, flashes a victory sign inside a defendant's box at the Meshansky district court in Moscow on Dec. 9. YURI KOCHETKOV/POOL/AFP VIA GETTY IMAGES

——————————

4 years in prison.  I hope Yashin does not loose faith in non-violent political activism.

Must be the Norwegian sweater that makes him so dangerous.

Lying is the mistake that begets more "mistakes".

There are some interesting (to me anyway) parts of that narrative that go back to George Sr who intentionally and quite cleverly (ok the clever bit may have come from advisors) blurred the lines between nuclear weapons and biological weapons. Before the first gulf war they were worried about Iraq maybe using bio weapons so he basically said, "We will treat use of weapons of mass destruction the same so if you use bio weapons, we will nuke you." And it worked. But the follow-on was that George Jr. could use the opaqueness to justify the next war. He only paid attention to the dubious evidence that Iraq might still have a biological program or the ability to start it up again. Then with some smoke and mirrors made it seem like Iraq had a nuke program. Powell never cited anything out of Department of Energy who are the primary agency for nuclear intelligence. And the DOE people knew it was bullshit; there was no nuclear program at the time.

Households must slash energy use to defeat Putin, says Hunt
The Chancellor urged households to “play your part” in reducing the UK's vulnerability to Russia and other despotic regimes. His plea will be part of a reported £25m public information campaign to help the public slash their bills.

It came as the electricity operator EDF delayed the reopening of three French nuclear power stations, triggering concerns that Britain could struggle to import energy from across the Channel on days when domestic supply runs short.

Putin's crony Yevgeny Prigozhin about U.S. elections: "We have interfered, we're interfering and we will continue to interfere. Carefully, precisely, surgically and in our own way; we know how to do it."

Russia Rejoins Grain Deal but Warns It Could Pull Out Again

The agreement allows Ukraine, a major food producer, to export grain by sea, easing the threat of famine in other countries.
