A Crime to Tell the Truth

The presidential website makes it crystal clear. It is now a crime punishable by imprisonment for 10-15 years to report the truth about Putin’s war to crush Ukraine under article 207.3. So Russia is to re-experience the Orwellian nightmare of high Stalinism. The Russian stockmarket is open for “futures” and “options” but, as Kommersant’ reports, there does not seem to be any demand. Perhaps that sums it all up. There is no future. There are no options.
