We live in interesting times.
"FACEBOOK WILL TEMPORARILY allow its billions of users to praise the Azov Battalion, a Ukrainian neo-Nazi military unit previously banned from being freely discussed under the company’s Dangerous Individuals and Organizations policy, The Intercept has learned."
The wholesale ignoring and minimizing of Russian criminal behavior makes this a thoroughly biased presentation. (A complete whitewashing and gross historical revisionism). As long as Putin's stooge was in charge, Putin didn't have a problem. It was only when the stooge was pushed out that Putin sought to retake Ukraine by force, albeit in pieces.
A kleptocratic thugocracy is totally comparable to western democracy (not).
I don't care if it is the West's fault. The West didn't just invade it. Ukrainians (and those around Ukraine) seem to object and they have that right. Russian life is regressive to a so-called free one (I'm guessing). Unless he uses a nuke, and maybe especially if he does, then he is unlikely to stop resistance. If his Army kills a NATO country civilian, in Ukraine, that might even provoke a NATO reaction. Biting into bitter dreams is a problem for Dictators. They often fall if they don't spit it out.
