I was uneasy with Russian proxies in Ukraine being called "terrorists". I felt like we tried to use the word "terrorist" as "villain", "aggressor", playing on an image of West's most recent enemy, and depriving the word  of its actual meaning. To me, Putin's war in Ukraine didn't fit the definition of terrorism. Even the downing of MH17, while a hideous crime, was not an act of terror.
Yesterday, however, Russian forces in Ukraine became terrorists in the very literal meaning of this word. A Claymore-like mine was detonated in Kharkiv, killing 2 and wounding a dozen in a peaceful rally. There was nothing even remotely resembling a military target there - just a column of people with flags and signs. It was an act of terror in its most pure, overt form.
Most repulsively, the Russian segment of the Internet erupted with gloat. In a schizophrenic way that became their trademark Putin's supporters filled thread after thread with messages suggesting that a blast was long overdue, and assertions that Ukraine did it to itself to make Russia look bad.
Daniel Dydyk, who suffered brain injuries during the February 22 terrorist bombing of a peaceful march in Kharkiv, Ukraine, died on February 23. His recent

meh.... they wanted to bring kharkov into the ato so they blew up their own people in a false flag. too obvious.  they can't keep their story straight and it's full of holes. they posted on face book that they arrested the guys at 15:00 when they showed the video it was dark, the guy with the camera was acting like he was casually shooting but had a pro camera with a tripod ready the and was able to start filming just in time. staged, like MH17

you still think Russian troops shot down mh17? silly... explain why OSCE is the airplane investigation team instead of a real aircraft investigation team, explain why Bandera's right hand man's grandson is the head? what a joke.

An absolutely brilliant speech. Timothy Snyder touches on Ukrainian history, recent and current events, Putin's strategy and tactics, and what is at stake for the West. Hint: everything.

Thanks Damian! It is in fact very easy. And it is important to keep the message short and to the point, as you did. The volunteer won't be able to record a 30-minute speech. 

So to any supporter of Ukraine who haven't called the WH yet: please call, and call often!

There will be a T-Shirt drive for military hospitals in Ukraine at the concert. If you come - and I hope you will - bring a t-shirt (new or gently used).

From all I hear she is a fantastic singer. And all proceeds go to Ukrainian non-profits.

Excellent article on how Ukrainans crowdfund and crowdsource the defense of their country:

If you are in DC or in the vicinity, please join us by the White House to protest Russian invasion.

The mask is off. Russian troops crossed Ukrainian border where no insurgency existed before. Come and call on White House to respond in a stronger possible way. POSTS. News Feed. Eric J Thompson · 6 mins. I would have to cancel other plans for tonight, so can only commit if we get enough people.
