Putin says Gorbachev had huge impact on course of global history
Gorbachev Never Realized What He Set in Motion - The Atlantic Almost nobody has ever had such a profound impact on an era, while understanding so little about it ... After 2014, he repeatedly declared his support for Russian President Vladimir Putins annexation of Crimea, an action that helped catalyze the wave of imperial nostalgia that has now brought us the war in Ukraine ... Although none of the forces he accidentally set in motion prevented Russia from turning back into a tyranny, the end of Soviet Communism could have been far more bloody, far more violent, and far more like the current war in Ukraine. If someone else had been in charge, it might well have been.

Even though the US consistently denies having transferred ATACMS missiles directly to Ukraine, there is no denying that the ongoing missile strikes on russian high value targets in Crimea look a lot - like seriously a LOT - like ATACMS strikes

Yes, but that is very gentle mode of war from the Russian perspective. Those who decry happening as "madness" or call it "unimaginable" are either clueless (Westerners) or liars (Russians). Russian war in Ukraine is going on *extremely* soft mode. Because Ukraine has air defence ... 5: Russia is a large and strong military machine without *any* ethical or humanitarian concerns. In Syria they literally depopulated a large country. Russian public opinion ignores or endorses it. Ergo, Russia must be demilitarised to minimise the danger it poses to the world
If Ukraine didnt have significant air defense, Russia could have resorted to the same indiscriminate use of the air-force as in Syria or Chechnya. But it cant.

A Drop in Murders - The New York Times - Despite the grim headlines, 2022 is less violent so far than last year ... Nationwide, shootings are down 4 percent this year compared to the same time last year. In big cities, murders are down 3 percent. If the decrease in murders continues for the rest of 2022, it will be the first year since 2018 in which they fell in the U.S. ... Disruptions related to Covid probably led to more murders and shootings by shutting down social services, which had kept people safe, and closing schools, which left many teens idle ... In 2022, bad news bias has left many Americans thinking that violent crime is worse this year when it ultimately may not be. And this bias has skewed public perceptions of crime and violence in the past, too.

Go ask Alice, if you can find her - Lawyers, Guns & Money Like every other teenager in mid-1970s America, I read Go Ask Alice, the lurid diary of a 15-year-old girl who is swept into a world of drug abuse and (spoiler) dies of an overdose. I learned recently that the whole thing was completely fabricated by Beatrice Sparks, a 50something Mormon housewife with burning literary ambitions: Ask Alice made it to market because of talk-show host Art Linkletter. Linkletters daughter Diane, barely 21, died by suicide in 1969, and Linkletter came to think this happened because she had been taking LSD. Sparks, hearing the story, pitched him on her idea of a diary of a lost girl, and it fit his priors.It was the perfect pitch at the perfect time. It was, after all, a story Art Linkletter already believed (nothing to do with him being an abusive asshole) ... Beatrice Sparks was no more a psychologist than she was a Sasquatch, and even a lazy editor could have unraveled the lies with a single phone call ... the general pattern of fabulists fabricating narratives that resonate with and intensify whatever moral panics are coursing through the broader culture is a recurring one in recent American culture, from satanic ritual abuse in preschools in the 1980s through the current QAnon madness.

Russian Offensive Campaign Assessment, July 31 | Institute for the Study of War
#Russian forces have resumed localized ground attacks northwest and southwest of #Izyum and may be setting conditions for offensive operations further west into #Kharkiv Oblast or toward Kharkiv City. /1
Factors for this slow rate of Russian advance include US-provided HIMARS degrading Russian capabilities to maintain high volumes of artillery fire starting in late June, the Russian operational pause from around July 6-16, and Russian forces general exhaustion.
Brown is the Ukrainian territory which Russians could seize since Feb 24. Hardly 25%.

Ukraine has taken back 46 villages in Kherson Oblast since start of counter-offensive. Acting Governor of Kherson Oblast Dmytro Butrii reported the number, adding that some villages are 90% destroyed, and are still under shelling,
General Staff: Russia shelled 35 settlements in Kharkiv, Donetsk oblasts. In Kharkiv Oblast, the Russian military attacked the city of Kharkiv and another 16 settlements. In Donetsk Oblast, Russian troops attacked the city of Bakhmut and 17 other settlements.
They put them in basements, electrocute them, torment them, demand money, pressure their families, threaten to abduct their children, Starukh said. Since March, 453 civilians have been held hostage by Russian forces in Zaporizhzhia Oblast, some of whom have been released.
More than 60% of the population has left #Melitopol since its occupation by #Russian troops, reports the mayor of the city, Ivan Fedorov. According to him, despite the protest of the population, the occupiers are still preparing for a pseudo-referendum.
#Russian-Occupied Areas Update: Russian occupation authorities are reportedly bringing citizens of distant Russian republics to live in #Melitopol, purportedly in an effort to create the image of a large population living in Melitopol.

A Hotter Russia | Sophie Pinkham | The New York Review of Books About two thirds of Russia is covered in permafrost, a mixture of sand and ice that, until recently, remained frozen year-round.

Sinkholes have opened in the melting ground, swallowing up whole buildings. Ice roads over frozen water, once the only way to travel in some remote regions, are available for ever-shorter periods. The Arctic coast is eroding rapidly, imperiling structures built close to the water.
