Unfortunately their choices are protest and get locked up, or go to war and risk death. I imagine we’ll see a lot of surrenders when the first mobilization of troops gets to Ukraine

Why choose when you can have both? They're already handing out draft papers to arrested protesters.

I mentioned it earlier somewhere and will repeat. I really wish that one day Russia is ruled by normal people.

By normal I mean someone who isn't a f*cking war criminal and Hitler wannabe.

I dream of a day astrophysicists from Russia will contribute to the mystery of the cosmos without worry of a dictator trying to use it to kill everybody else.

It seem those dank ass Soviet memes basically become foundation of modern Russia, I truly pity you for being on those foundations.

IMO Russians have a tough choice to make, either passively let Putin destroy their country or stand up against him whatever the consequences may be.
