The Kamila Valieva case is an indictment of the anti-doping system, not her
[img]https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-apps/imrs.php?src=https://arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/ZRZZEIEKKMI6ZA4PBT67NHGOHQ.jpg[/img]
...
The criminalizing of 15-year-old virtuoso Kamila Valieva is the moral disaster that the pseudo-puritan twistos of the anti-doping movement have been asking for all these years, with their “zero tolerance.” It has led to the damning of an innocent. Watch Valieva, just watch her. Discern anything in her performances but unhurried grace and pure greatness.
The Valieva story has exposed the World Anti-Doping Agency yet again for its shoddy gutter toxicology, arbitrary persecutions and endless legal spirals. There is zero firm evidence that a trace amount of an innocuous medication called trimetazidine gave Valieva so much as an extra blade-width of advantage or that she took it willfully. There is overwhelming evidence that she is already the greatest figure skater of her time, and perhaps any other. She towers. There is no substance, none, that accounts for her artistry, the impression that she is borne aloft by God’s own strings, except inspiration.
WADA is like a crazed cat in yarn over this case, tangled in its usual skeins of conflicting illogic, and that’s an indictment of the system, not her. To recite the events up to this point: back on Dec. 25, Valieva provided a drug test sample. It went to a WADA lab in Stockholm that should have analyzed it within about 10 days. Unaccountably, it took almost two months and did not issue a result until Tuesday, after she had skated in the Olympics. This is typical of an intolerable WADA slovenliness (and perhaps politicization) that athletes have complained about for years. Ask Diana Taurasi. Before that test, and after, Valieva took others which were apparently clear, including in Beijing, where she turned in a performance in the team event that was utterly untouchable, performing a transporting ballet and landing it on scalpels atop ice.
This case should be simple. The testing system screwed up, and there is not one reason to penalize Valieva.
Nevertheless, the pure-blood cranks and Russia’s rivals promoted it as a global crime, and WADA and the International Olympic Committee plunged Valieva and the entire field into uncertainty with a multilayered suspension process. They are incapable of sorting out the matter sensibly, because they are sham structures that impose a policy of “when in doubt, punish” on individual athletes to appear as if they have ethics, of which they have none. The system is a wonderland of injustice more gross than any original offense and reflective of the autocrats with whom WADA and the IOC love to do corrupt business. Zero tolerance means mistakes will not be tolerated by athletes, and so WADA must be incapable of mistakes.
A word about of trimetazidine. It’s an angina medication used in Europe, and you’ll get a different opinion about it depending on who you ask. It’s on WADA’s banned list because the pure-blooders theorize that endurance athletes may use it seeking some sort of benefit at peak heart rate. But as The Washington Post’s Emily Giambalvo reported, “There is scant medical literature demonstrating its effect in sports.” From the American Journal of Therapeutics: It “exerts no effect on the coronary flow, contractility, blood pressure, or heart rate. It has no significant negative inotropic or vasodilatory properties at rest or during exercise.”
And here are its potential side effects: gastric or esophageal burning, muscular cramps, dizziness, effort-induced discomfort, depression, sedation and/or drowsiness, palpitations, visual disturbances, anorexia, and hyperorexia. Also, potential motor disorders including tremor, and muscle rigidity.
Yeah. That’s what a figure skater wants.
Well done by the pure-blood hounds. What police work.
This girl is not the face of Russian state doping. If the sports world wants to go after Vladimir Putin’s system, then target those directly responsible, the ones who really are the face of the system, such as Valieva’s coach, Eteri Tutberidze. And do it with hard science, not suspicion and rumor. Which is what this case is really about: rumor, suspicion and resentment by other nations. Those are not the elements of fair adjudication. They are the elements of show trials, and they would make the biggest fall-person in these filthily corrupt, crime-stained, Dante-encircled Games out of a faultless slip of a kid.
It’s worth remembering the havoc WADA created over Meldonium, an over-the-counter med used in Eastern Europe. More than 100 athletes, many of them Russian, were branded dopers for using it, only for their bans to be overturned because the WADA clown-cops didn’t know enough about it — they didn’t even have reliable data on how long it takes the body to excrete it. You can assume their data on trimetazidine is about as reliable.
Science is rigorous, evidence-based with double-checked conclusions, uncontaminated by moral suspicion of impieties. The anti-dopers don’t have science, they have only orthodoxy and heresy, crude absolutist theology marked by denunciations, and fear of unseen devils.
You can only hope that the obvious purity of Valieva’s performance, her relieving clean lines, supreme lightness in the air and unenhanced artistry, will overcome it all, and she will be allowed to do what she was born to do, skate.

At Olympics and beyond, getting away with it is Russia’s way
...
BEIJING (AP) — Be it sports, politics, hacking or war, the recent history of Russia’s relationship with the world can be summed up in one phrase: They get away with it.
Vladimir Putin’s Russia has perfected the art of flouting the rules, whether the venue is the Olympic arena, international diplomacy or meddling in other countries’ elections from the comfort of home. And it has suffered little consequence for its actions.
At the Beijing Winter Olympics, Russia the country isn’t here — technically. Its athletes are competing under the acronym ROC, for Russian Olympic Committee, for the second time. The national colors and flag are banned because of a massive state-sponsored doping operation that goes back to the 2014 Sochi Games, which Russia hosted.
And yet the 2022 Games’ first major scandal has managed to involve a 15-year-old figure skater who has tested positive for using a banned heart medication that may cost her Russia-but-not-really-Russia team a gold medal in team competition.
Her provisional suspension, like the so-called ban on Russia’s official participation in these Games, didn’t do much. Kamila Valieva continues to train even as her final disposition is considered, and she may yet compete in the women’s individual competition, in which she is favored.
Those who have watched the country’s interactions with others in recent decades aren’t entirely surprised at the developments.
“In Russia, the culture is generally that the ends justify the means, and the only thing that matters is the outcome,” said Dmitri Alperovitch, the chairman of the Silverado Policy Accelerator think tank, who grew up in the former Soviet Union.
Doping in particular has been a longstanding tradition in the Soviet Union and Russia, Alperovitch said. But Putin frequently operates with impunity in other arenas, including when the stakes are much higher than bronze, silver and gold.
More than 100,000 Russian troops are currently massed along the Ukrainian border preparing for a possible invasion. Despite weeks of diplomacy, Putin still seems to hold all the cards, pushing Europe to the brink of war and prompting British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to call this the continent’s “most dangerous moment” in decades.
Many have accused the Russian government of dabbling in poisoning with little consequence. Among those poisoned after criticizing the Kremlin: investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya, who fell severely ill after drinking a cup of tea in 2004 and recovered, only to be shot to death two years later; and Russian opposition politician and vocal Putin critic Alexei Navalny, who fell gravely ill from poison in 2020. He recovered and is currently in a Russian prison. Neither poisoning was explicitly linked to the Russian government.
Putin’s efforts to upend U.S. elections included hacking the Democratic National Committee in 2016 in an effort to aid then-candidate Donald Trump and damage his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. federal investigations showed. Russian government hackers were also blamed last year for a massive hacking campaign that breached vital federal agencies.
The current Ukraine standoff isn’t the first time Russian militarism has threatened to upend the so-called “Olympic truce,” an agreement among nations to set aside their conflicts during the Games.
In 2014, while hosting the Sochi Olympics, Putin seized control of the Crimean peninsula and its strategic Black Sea ports from Ukraine. And during the 2008 Summer Olympics, also held in Beijing, Russia recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia, two breakaway regions of neighboring Georgia, as independent nations and bolstered its military foothold there following a five-day war.
Economic sanctions and other punishments imposed by the United States and its allies after various Russian transgressions seem to have had little effect as a deterrent against future bad behavior by Putin.
In 2020, the U.S. Justice Department charged six current and former Russian intelligence officers in a hacking campaign targeting the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. They were accused of unleashing a devastating malicious software attack during the opening ceremony of those Games, in apparent retaliation for the IOC’s decision to ban Russia from future Games for doping.
“Time and again, Russia has made it clear: They will not abide by accepted norms, and instead, they intend to continue their destructive, destabilizing cyber behavior,” then-FBI Deputy Director David Bowdich said at the time the indictment was announced.
And time and again, Russia presses on unchastened. So there was Putin last Friday, waving from his luxury box to Russian athletes entering Beijing’s Bird’s Nest stadium during the Games’ opening ceremony.
Even though it is banned on Russian uniforms at these Games, Russian flags waved in the stands as the ROC men’s hockey team, clad in their traditional red, shut out Switzerland in their inaugural match.
“I don’t know why the Russians are competing as they are given their history of doping,” said Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who helmed the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. “I think it is a huge mistake.”
Russian athletes’ involvement in the Games, Romney said, “is something which I think is leaving a great stain on the Olympic movement.”
Back home, Valieva’s positive test has been met with outrage, fueling a sense that when it comes to sports, politics and international relations, it’s Russia vs. the world.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters that the scandal has been fueled by “those who did not have the appropriate information.” And other prominent Russian skaters, including Tatiana Navka, former Olympic ice-dancing gold medalist and Peskov’s wife, spoke out in support of Valieva.
“This is some kind of a fake,” said Russia’s top figure skating coach, Tatiana Tarasova. “She’s only 15, what do you mean doping?”
Ordinary Russians questioned the allegations as well. Nikolai Stashenkov, 88, blamed the scandal on the “impudence of European and Western politicians.”
“This is not nice,” he said. “This is not sport. This is dirty politics.”
Politics were also to blame, according to Russian officials, in the doping scandal that resulted in a reduced squad of Russian athletes being allowed to compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
“This has become one of the most compelling evidence of direct political interference in sports,” Putin would later say in a meeting with Russian Paralympians.
Polling has shown the tactic is working with the Russian public. A 2016 poll by the Levada Center, Russia’s top independent pollster, showed 76% of Russians viewed the decision to bar the Russian track and field team from the Rio Olympics as “politicized” and “aimed at discrediting Russia.”
But Russia has often done an able job of discrediting itself.
For the Sochi Games in 2014, Russian medal contenders handed over samples of clean urine months in advance before taking a cocktail of steroids dissolved in alcohol, according to Grigory Rodchenkov, then the director of the drug-testing lab for the Games. He later fled to the United States.
During the Olympics, Rodchenkov said he swapped out samples via a hole in the wall of the laboratory to a person from the Russian security services who opened the urine sample bottles and replaced the contents with the stored, clean urine.
Russia has admitted some individual lapses on doping, but strenuously denies it formed part of an organized program or that the Russian state writ large supported doping.
In Beijing this week, events are moving fast. Urgent hearings are being convened about Valieva, and lots of officials are saying lots of things behind lots of closed doors. It remains to be seen whether her case becomes a new chapter in Russia’s twin track records of operating with impunity in both sport and geopolitics, or a footnote to the rise of another Olympic superstar.
Either way, Alperovitch, who is also the co-founder and former chief technology officer of the CrowdStrike cybersecurity firm, sees all of it as of a piece — evidence of a facet of Russian culture that prizes outcomes above everything else and will do what it takes to achieve them.
“The thing in Russia is that cheating is acceptable if you don’t get caught,” Alperovitch said. “Shame on you if you do. But if you think you can get away with it, go for it.”

Russian coach produces teen skating stars with short careers

...
BEIJING (AP) — The coach behind Russia’s figure skating dynasty rarely speaks to the media, enhancing her mystique as a guru who produces a line of teenage stars who can land jumps no other women even attempt.
A doping furor around her star pupil has forced Eteri Tutberidze into the spotlight at the Beijing Olympics. She broke her silence on the case against Kamila Valieva on Saturday, telling Russian TV: “We are absolutely sure that Kamila is innocent and clean.”
Tutberidze-trained skaters have dominated competition for eight years, but critics have raised concerns about their short careers - many retire as teenagers - and propensity to suffer serious injuries.
The news that 15-year-old Valieva tested positive for a banned heart medication before the Olympics puts Russia’s gold medal in the team event in jeopardy and could kick her out of the women’s competition next week.


Valieva made her senior debut just five months ago, but she’s already acclaimed as a generational talent. She combines spectacular jumping power — landing the first quadruple jump by a woman in Olympic history on Monday — with elegant skills to shatter world-record scores.
When an athlete under 16 — a “protected person” in Olympic jargon — tests positive, the rules say their entourage must be investigated. That means the Russian anti-doping agency is launching an examination of Tutberidze’s world-beating, secretive training group in Moscow.
“On one hand, they are professional athletes, and they are competing at high level competitions as other adults (do) and should be ready to bear all their responsibility,” Margarita Pakhnotskaya, former deputy CEO of the Russian anti-doping agency, told The Associated Press.
“But on the other hand, we know that psychologically and mentally, they are not adults. And partly this responsibility should be shared with the senior people who are in their nearest circle.”
Tutberidze’s approach to training focuses on athleticism and a fearsome work ethic. She had to work to build a coaching career from a low point as a penniless skater performing in U.S. ice shows in the 1990s. She was stuck in Oklahoma living in a YMCA when she survived the 1995 bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City.
One person in Tutberidze’s orbit who could face questions is sports doctor Filipp Shvetsky, who accompanied Valieva to her first senior international competition in October. The doctor has said he was barred from working with Russia’s rowing team after a 2007 doping investigation.

WORLD-BEATERS
In less than a decade, Tutberidze has gone from being one of many Russian skating coaches to the leader of a dynasty.
Her breakthrough came when Yulia Lipnitskaya helped Russia win the team event gold in Sochi in 2014, becoming the second-youngest gold medalist in the history of the sport.
Four years later, Tutberidze had the top two women, with Alina Zagitova beating Evgenia Medvedeva for the gold. In Beijing, Tutberidze all three Russian women could sweep the podium with their high-scoring quad jumps.
Tutberidze can select the most promising young Russian skaters for her camp, which has enviable facilities and funding. At the national championships where Valieva tested positive in December, a Tutberidze skater won for the seventh year in a a row.

SHORT CAREERS, INJURY CONCERNS
Stars trained by Tutberidze have not had long careers.
Defending Olympic champion Zagitova took a break in December 2019 at 17, saying she needed to find motivation after losing to younger Russians with quad jumps. She hasn’t skated competitively since and focuses on a TV career. Medvedeva performed at the 2018 Games with a cracked bone in her foot. Three months later, she left Tutberidze’s camp to train with Brian Orser in Canada, saying she wanted to “work together with a coach like (a) friend.”
Lipnitskaya retired at 19, revealing she had struggled with anorexia. Chronic back injuries forced retirement last year for Elizabet Tursynbaeva of Kazakhstan, the first woman to land a quad at the world championships in 2019. Another Tutberidze skater, Darya Usacheva, suffered a serious injury in November and traveled home in a wheelchair.
Rafael Arutyunyan, coach of Olympic men’s champion Nathan Chen, likened Russian skaters with short careers to single-use coffee cups in a 2020 interview with a Russian sports website, without mentioning Tutberidze by name.
Tutberidze’s outlook and career were shaped by spending much of the 1990s in the United States.
Born in Moscow to Georgian parents, Tutberidze never made it to the elite of Soviet figure skating. After the Soviet Union collapsed, she headed to the U.S. to skate in ice shows.
In a rare interview published on the Russian Figure Skating Federation website in 2015, Tutberidze detailed how the dream turned sour. Other skaters had visa issues and her money ran out while waiting for them to arrive in Oklahoma. Without money, she attended Baptist church services for free food.
“We had to sit through the service, and afterward they brought out water for the congregation and some little sandwiches,” she said.
Tutberidze said she was living in a YMCA just a block away from the federal building in Oklahoma City when she was caught up in one of the worst terrorist acts on U.S. soil. The April 1995 bombing by anti-government extremist Timothy McVeigh left 168 people dead.
“Glass, rubble, smashed paneling, blood, mutilated bodies,” she said. “To begin with we didn’t understand what had happened. There was a building and now it’s not there, just dust, and on the intersection lumps of rubble instead of cars.”
Tutberidze’s name is inscribed on a “survivors’ wall” on the site of the blast. She spent six years in the U.S., first as a skater, then as a coach in San Antonio. Her daughter, Diana Davis, competing in Beijing on the Russian ice dance team, was born in the U.S.
She returned to Russia and worked for more than a decade before becoming an internationally recognized coach. Tutberidze has said life’s successes require hard times — a philosophy that might also apply to her coaching style.
“It’s a very comfortable, quiet life there (in the U.S.). Great people, wonderful relationships,” she said. “But for me, there’s a lack of contrast in all that abundance. When there are no difficulties, you can’t understand what happiness is.”

Travis Tygart: US could prosecute Russians in Kamila Valieva case, says USADA chief


...
The United States could prosecute Russian individuals allegedly involved in figure skater Kamila Valieva's doping case under the American Rodchenkov Anti-Doping Act (RADA), the head of the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), Travis Tygart, told CNN on Friday.
The RADA bill, named after whistleblower Grigory Rodchenkov who helped expose the Russian doping scandal, was signed into law by former US President Donald Trump in December 2020.
The bill enables the US to impose criminal sanctions on individuals involved in doping at major international sports competitions that feature US athletes, sponsors and broadcasters.
Penalties for violating the law include up to 10 years imprisonment and fines of $250,000 for individuals and $1 million for organizations.
"As more facts are developed, I think the Rodchenkov Act potentially could come into play," said Tygart.
"If there's a doctor, or a coach, or state officials, sport official, who conspired to dope her [Valieva], then [the Rodchenkov Act] fits like a glove, because it is an international major competition, as defined by the Rodchenkov Act, which includes U.S. money, companies broadcasting, or sponsoring, the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) code applies, there's more than three foreign athletes, and there's more than one US athlete competing," he added.
"Russia's doping, state sponsored and otherwise, has taken away from what we ought to be celebrating, which is the Olympic values, competition done the right way, athletes who win because they're doing it the right way," Tygart added.
'Tremendous amount of sympathy'
Speaking about 15-year-old Valieva, Tygart said there was "a tremendous amount of sympathy for this young athlete (...) at the center of a global media firestorm, due to no fault of her own."
"People in the world don't want to watch a rigged games," he added.
The Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) announced Friday it has launched an investigation into Valieva's support staff following the Russian's positive doping test.
Earlier on Friday, The International Testing Agency (ITA) confirmed that the 15-year-old failed a drug test taken in December, ahead of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
Valieva, who helped the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) take gold in Monday's figure skating team event, was allowed to compete despite failing the test, after a provisional suspension which had been placed on her over the matter was lifted by RUSADA.
Meanwhile, the Court of Arbitration (CAS) announced Friday that is has received applications from both the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and WADA appealing the RUSADA decision to lift a provisional suspension on Valieva following a doping violation.

"The applications will be consolidated," said the CAS in a statement. "A Panel of arbitrators will be appointed shortly to decide the matter. The Panel will issue procedural directions, including directions for a hearing.
"The date and time of the CAS decision will be announced after the hearing."

POLITICO Playbook: Biden warns allies of imminent Russian attack on Ukraine
...
Overnight, the State Department began evacuating the U.S. embassy in Kyiv amid fears that a Russian invasion of Ukraine is imminent. Here’s the latest:
— A small “core” of U.S. diplomats will remain in Kyiv so the U.S. can maintain a diplomatic presence in the country, writes Myah Ward.
— Meanwhile, the State Department has told Americans in Ukraine to leave immediately: the “U.S. government will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens in the event of Russian military action,” it said in a travel advisory.

This morning:
— Already spoke:
Secretary of State ANTONY BLINKEN and Russian Foreign Minister SERGEY LAVROV. Per the White House, Blinken emphasized that “a diplomatic path to resolving the crisis remained open, but it would require Moscow to deescalate. … He reiterated that should Moscow pursue the path of aggression and further invade Ukraine, it would result in a resolute, massive, and united Transatlantic response.”
— Scheduled to speak: President JOE BIDEN and Russian President VLADIMIR PUTIN. “Before talking to Biden, Putin is to have a call with French President EMMANUEL MACRON,” reports AP’s Jim Heintz.
— Putin reportedly wanted to have the call with Biden this coming Monday, “but Biden wanted to conduct it sooner as Washington detailed increasingly vivid accounts of a possible attack on Ukraine,” per Reuters.

Among those accounts:
— U.S. intelligence believes Russia is eyeing Wednesday, Feb. 16, to start military action, report our Alex Ward and Quint Forgey, and that any action “could be preceded by a barrage of missile strikes and cyberattacks.”
— But some U.S. allies are skeptical: “A U.K. official said that ‘we have a different interpretation’ of the Feb. 16 intelligence. Meanwhile, two European Union diplomats shared even more skeptical views, with one saying they ‘still refuse to buy it. It would be such a mistake by Putin.’”
— Ukraine is … also skeptical: “I think there's too much out there about a full-scale war from Russia, and people are even naming dates,” Ukrainian President VOLODYMYR ZELENSKYY[b] insisted at a presser. “The best friend for our enemies is panic in our country, and all this information only creates panic, it doesn't help us."
[b]— Another caveat:
U.S. intelligence officials acknowledge “the possibility that mentioning a particular date could be part of a Russian disinformation effort,” reports the NYT.
— Russia itself has “pushed back fiercely against the stark warnings by the Biden administration that Moscow is on the verge of attack,” report WaPo’s Steve Hendrix and Amy Cheng. But: “Russia confirmed media reports Saturday that it was pulling its own diplomatic staff from Ukraine, citing ‘possible provocations by the Kyiv regime and third countries,’” though the move could also be read as an attempt to safely remove diplomats ahead of an invasion.

Четыре дня до "вторжения". Что происходит вокруг Украины? Обновляется

США вчера резко обострили ситуацию вокруг Украины, заявляя, что "вторжение" России может состоятся в ближайшие дни (СМИ даже называют дату - 16 февраля)
Причем заявления были подкреплены действиями: Штаты, а следом за ними множество других стран стали эвакуировать из Украины своих граждан и дипломатические представительства.
Это стало важным сигналом того, что намечается нечто серьезное.
Основные сценарии того, что может произойти, "Страна" описывала здесь. Но при любом из раскладов, и Россия, и Украина опровергают слухи о скорой войне.
И это, пожалуй, самый удивительный момент всей этой истории: участники предполагаемой "войны" яростно отрицают, что она произойдет. А Запад буквально настаивает, что "вторжение" состоится.
Маркером того, куда идет ситуация, может стать намеченный на сегодня созвон Байдена и Путина. "Страна" следит за главными заявлениями и событиями вокруг темы "вторжения". Материал обновляется.

Представитель России в ООН предположил, что США сами нападут на Украину

"Некоторые разумные люди надеялись, что раздуваемая США истерия пошла на убыль. Возможно, они это сглазили, поскольку паникеры явно получили второе дыхание. Наши войска по-прежнему находятся на нашей территории, и будет интересно, если США сами вторгнутся в Украину. Кому-то же придется это делать после такой панической кампании", - иронично прокомментировал Полянский.

Opinion | How the West Gets Ukraine Wrong — and Helps Putin As a Result
...
It was just a casual, throwaway description. Last September, the New York Times reported on a series of daring operations by Ukrainian special forces to evacuate civilians from Afghanistan. U.S. troops had left Kabul, and the Taliban had taken complete control. “Enter Ukraine,” the article read, “a small but battle-hardened nation.”
Even today, as Russian troops amass along Ukraine’s borders and threaten a dramatic escalation of their undeclared 8-year war, most Americans would pass over that word: small.
This is a big problem. Ukraine is the largest country by territory within the European continent. Its population is roughly the size of Spain’s. Take even a cursory look at any map — Ukraine is anything but small.
But in the West, our mental maps too often assume otherwise. Ukraine, some argue, is a blip on the radar — it pops up on screens and in newsfeeds roughly once every decade, with the fate of Europe hanging in the balance somewhere over the Dnipro river. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The Orange Revolution in 2004. The annexation of Crimea in 2014. And now Russian President Vladimir Putin’s geopolitical hostage-taking in 2021-22, eliciting anxiety of a new World War in the making.
To contest the Kremlin’s cascading aggression, start by revising your mental map. Ukraine is a large country of persistent strategic and intellectual significance, and not only because of its diverse human capital, abundant economic potential or pivotal position between Russia and the European Union. Beyond the questions of what they have and where they are, Ukrainians are important for what they do and what they have done.
The truth is that Ukraine’s political and cultural agency has helped shape and reshape the map of Europe for generations. Indeed, Ukrainians have played an active part in the demise of not one, or two, or three, but four different empires, including Austria-Hungary and the Soviet Union.
This role has not been incidental. It has been hard won, driven by a modern national identity primarily based not on ethnic or religious affiliation, but on an idea: universal democratic freedom.
This idea may strike some as saccharine or strange. After all, the image of Ukraine in the West is often one of rapacious oligarchs and corrupt, feuding politicians — and not without good reason. But look beyond Ukraine’s recent history of government and elite intrigue, and you will see a vibrant, grassroots civil society that embodies the egalitarian agenda of Ukrainian civic nationalism. Especially since 2014, after hundreds of thousands of protesters fought against corruption and bled for freedom and rule of law in what has become known in Ukraine as the Revolution of Dignity, Ukrainian civil society has succeeded in compelling the Ukrainian state to do better.
Putin, meanwhile, has gone to extraordinary lengths to allege that there is no such thing as a freestanding Ukrainian national identity. We need to be wise to the con. One of the many fronts of Russia’s war against Ukraine is informational. Time and again Putin has actively sought to push a narrative about Ukraine and Ukrainians as deeply, historically, spiritually embedded in the so-called Russian world. “Russians and Ukrainians,” he insisted last July, are “one people, a single whole.”
Putin’s assertion vividly illustrates a longstanding practice of refusing to frame Ukrainians as the subjects of their own story, of denying them a distinct historical trajectory and cultural agency of their own. Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin, of all people, understood this practice. “To ignore the importance of the national question in Ukraine,” he wrote, “means committing a profound and dangerous error.” Lenin spoke of this mistake as a common Russian “sin.”
So what do we see when we take modern Ukrainian nationhood seriously, on its own terms? We see a social and cultural movement with an anticolonial backbone and a suspicion of state institutions led by strongmen. We discover that, in the realm of political values, Ukraine is not Russia’s cousin. It’s Russia’s competitor.
_________________
Until the 17th century , nearly all the territory of today’s Ukraine was located within the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth — that is, in a Polish “sphere of influence.” Prior to this point, for well over three centuries, the peoples we now call Ukrainians and Russians had traveled in different political orbits altogether.

These orbits intersected in the Treaty of Pereiaslav of 1654 — an event that looms large in the Russian version of Ukrainian history. At this time, Ukraine was a name for the land controlled by the Cossack Hetmanate, an autonomous polity carved from the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth after a bloody Cossack rebellion against Kraków. The Ukrainian Cossacks and the Russian tsar made a pact in Pereiaslav that marked the start of an uneasy relationship. It was a transaction between parties who needed language interpreters and referred to each other with terms like “foreigner.” Today, however, the Kremlin presents the Treaty of Pereiaslav as a “reunion” (vossoedinenie), a term that conceals the reality of Russian imperial expansion.
A half century later, Tsar Peter I refused to honor what the Cossacks understood as terms of mutual defense in their alliance, prompting the Cossack leader or “hetman” Ivan Mazepa to turn his forces against Russian power. Years before, Mazepa had written a prescient poetic lament about “mother Ukraine” in tension with an untrustworthy Moscow. Mazepa’s dramatic defeat at the Battle of Poltava in 1709 inspired new lamentations. Peter’s soldiers leveled the capital of the Hetmanate, but Ukrainian Cossack political autonomy still persisted in fits and starts throughout most of the 18th century. Rich, colorful European maps at the time show “Ukraine, Land of the Cossacks” holding on to borders similar to those we know today. In 1775, however, Russian Empress Catherine II, seeking to subsume neighboring peoples into an ever-larger Russian Empire, razed the remaining Ukrainian Cossack strongholds and ushered in the institution of serfdom in their place. Note the historical arc: slow-burning imperial conquest, not eternal confederation.
As it was being absorbed into Russian imperial space in the 18th and 19th centuries, Ukraine was often referred to as “Little Russia,” a term that may go some way to explain lingering impressions of Ukraine as somehow “small” today. But the origins of the name, coined by the Orthodox Patriarch in Constantinople around the turn of the 14th century, when Muscovy was little more than a fledgling principality to the north, likely have less to do with size than with distance. “Rus” was the historical name for both the people and the wide expanse of territory centered in what is today Ukraine and Belarus. For the patriarch in Constantinople, “Little Russia” — or better translated, “Rus Minor” — had a meaning of the Rus close by. It was juxtaposed to “Great Russia” — or better, “Rus Major” — which connoted the Rus farther away, on the periphery. Think of Asia Minor and Asia Major, or even terms like “Greater New York.”
As geopolitical fortunes changed over time, so too did the understanding of these terms. By 1762 Ukrainian writers like Semen Divovych had come to read “little” and “great” as reflections of political power. But Divovych and his compatriots still had no patience for lazy conflations of Ukrainians and Russians as “one people.” Speaking in the voice of “Little Russia” to “Great Russia,” Divovych wrote, “Do not think that you rule over me… You the Great, and I the Little, live in neighboring countries.”

Ukrainians like Divovych frequently made clear their differences with Russians, but it took a trail-blazing poet in the mid-19th century to invest these differences with a clear ethical and political significance. This poet was Taras Shevchenko, and his passion for freedom, disgust for tyrants and distrust of structures of political authority became the primary source code of modern Ukrainian nationhood. Without him, today’s Ukraine would not exist.

Shevchenko made sense of the history of Ukrainians by centering their identity on one key value above all others: freedom, volia. All grassroots national movements pursue freedom for their people, but Shevchenko, a former serf with intimate personal knowledge of slavery and bondage cutting across ethnic and religious lines, privileged the idea of universal democratic freedom itself. He sought freedom for all oppressed peoples, especially the Muslim communities in the Caucasus warding off the Russian forces that surrounded them in their day. His anticolonial watchwords “Boritesia, poborete” — “Fight, you will prevail” — echoed on the streets of Kyiv during the Revolution of Dignity in 2013-14. They resonate throughout the country now.
For Shevchenko, the idea of “mother Ukraine” was an antipode to aristocracy to the west and autocracy to the east. In his poetry he framed Ukrainian identity not primarily as a matter of ethnicity, religion or political allegiance — he had love neither for hetmans nor for tsars — but as a question of cultural authenticity and ethical behavior in the face of twin systems of serfdom and colonialism, which turned human beings into either chattel or canon fodder. “When will Ukraine have its own [George] Washington,” Shevchenko asked, “with a new and righteous law?”
Shevchenko wrote his nation-consolidating poetry in the Ukrainian vernacular, but he also used Russian in his prose. He did not see language politics as a zero-sum game. “Let the Russians write as they like, and let us write as we like,” he declared. “They are a people with a language, and so are we.”
In his verse, Shevchenko privileged Ukrainian, but in his life he practiced what remains today a prominent Ukrainian bilingualism, in which both the Ukrainian and Russian languages can circulate in everyday life. Americans often misread this easy multilingualism, mistaking Ukraine’s linguistic diversity for linguistic adversity — as “Ukrainian speakers” vs. “Russian speakers.” In fact, most Ukrainians can qualify as both, depending on the context, and language use is no clear indicator of political sentiment in Ukraine today in any case. In fact, according to former President Petro Poroshenko, Russian speakers comprise the majority of the thousands of Ukrainian military personnel killed in the ongoing undeclared war with Russia.
Shevchenko’s liberationist message went viral in the Russian Empire. It also resonated with groups of ethnic Russians, Poles, Jews and Crimean Tatars alike, powering a civic nationalist movement that took advantage of the political opening of 1917 to announce the birth of a country: the Ukrainian People’s Republic. The founding declaration was addressed to the people in four languages — Ukrainian, Russian, Polish and Yiddish.
Lenin’s Bolsheviks defeated the Ukrainian People’s Republic a few years later, but only after conceding that Ukraine was a nation deserving of a form of statehood, a concession that helped make Soviet victory possible along the non-Russian peripheries of the tsar’s former empire. After all, the Soviet Union was formally a union of national republics, and the Ukrainians were a central reason why.
The Soviet Union is now long gone. Today, in corridors of the Kremlin heavy with grievance, Russian chauvinism vis-à-vis Ukraine remains strong. Since 2014 it has led to the deaths of thousands of Ukrainian citizens and to the displacement of hundreds of thousands more.
Now it is making hostages of well over 40 million people. In menacing Ukraine’s borders, Putin is not only betting that the West doesn’t care about Ukraine. He is also betting that the West doesn’t know or even see Ukraine. Our ignorance feeds his aggression.
When we work to study Ukraine on its own terms, when we see Ukraine for what it is — a massive, pivotal, unique country whose people are once again at a front line of democratic freedom — we begin to prove him wrong.

Украина в феврале импортирует 13,5-14 млн куб. м газа в сутки – глава ОГТСУ
...
"Большая часть импорта поступает из Венгрии – в среднем 5,5 млн куб. м в сутки. Это стало возможным после того, как ОГТСУ с 1 января впервые в истории создал физическую возможность импорта газа из этой страны. Около 5 млн куб. м поступает из Словакии, остальное – в основном виртуальным реверсом из Польши", - написал он на своей странице в "Фейсбук".
Макогон также уточнил, что экспорт и реэкспорт газа из Украины с начала февраля составляет 2-2,5 млн куб. м/сутки.
По его словам, теплая погода и высокая цена газа, которая повлекла снижение его использования промышленными потребителями, сильно повлияли на общее потребление в Украине. В частности, 11 февраля-2022 суточное потребление составило 106 млн куб. м газа, что на 30% меньше, чем 11 февраля-2021 (152 млн куб. м).
Как сообщалось, импорт природного газа в Украину из ЕС в январе 2022 года сократился в 9,8 раза (на 394 млн куб. м) по сравнению с аналогичным периодом 2021 года – до 44,8 млн куб. м. Экспорт и реэкспорт газа из Украины в январе-2022 составил 178 млн куб. м, что на четверть ниже, чем в январе-2021.
Импорт природного газа в Украину из ЕС в 2021 году сократился в 6,2 раза (на 13,34 млрд куб. м) по сравнению с 2020 годом – до 2,56 млрд куб. м. Основная доля поставок в минувшем году была из Венгрии – 2,198 млрд куб. м, а также Словакии – 0,285 млрд куб. м и Польши – 0,079 млрд куб. м. Импорт в основном осуществлялся виртуальным реверсом (backhaul), а его доля в общем объеме поставок по итогам 2021 года составила 89%.
Экспорт и реэкспорт газа из Украины в 2021 году благодаря значительным запасам на "таможенном складе" в ПХГ составил 2,5 млрд куб. м, в том числе в направлении Венгрии поступило 1,5 млрд куб. м, Словакии – 0,6 млрд куб. м, Польши – 0,36 млрд куб. м, Молдовы – 0,07 млрд куб. м.

…сразу из нескольких источников (в т.ч. боевых товарищей с лбс) сообщают о применении ВСУ на южном фланге обороны ДНР самоходных реактивных установок разминирования УР-77, которые в простонародье кличут «Змей Горыныч».
Залпы «Горыныча» зафиксированы, как минимум, трижды в светлое время суток 13 февраля на рубеже Саханка—Коминтерново.
Эта «шайтан-машина» досталось украм в наследние от проклинаемого ими СССР. Она способна проделывать ходы в противотанковых и противопехотных минных полях. Тротиловая «кишка», выстреливая на минное поле, образует в нем проходы шириной от 6 до 14 метров, а длиной до 100 метров.

У Прокруста была крепость на горе Коридаллос в Эринее, на священном пути между Афинами и Элевсисом.[3] Там у него была кровать, в которой он приглашал каждого прохожего провести ночь, и где он принялся обрабатывать их своим кузнечным молотом, чтобы растянуть их по размеру. В более поздних рассказах, если гость оказывался слишком высоким, Прокруст ампутировал лишнюю длину; никто никогда точно не подходил к кровати.[4] Прокруст продолжал свое царство террора, пока его не захватил Тесей, путешествовавший в Афины по священному пути, который "приспособил" Прокруста к его собственной кровати.:
Он убил Дамастеса по прозвищу Прокруст, заставив его уложить свое собственное тело в постель, как он обычно делал с чужими. И он сделал это в подражание Гераклу. За это герой наказал тех, кто предлагал ему насилие, так, как они замышляли служить ему[5].
Убийство Прокруста было последним приключением Тесея на его пути из Троезена в Афины.

'We're talking way too much and we're doing too little' on Russia sanctions, Graham says
...
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday that stiff economic sanctions should be imposed now against Russia amid warnings that a military invasion of Ukraine could commence in a matter of days.
In an interview Sunday with ABC’s “This Week,” Graham said while he’s not yet convinced Russian President Vladimir Putin will move to invade Ukraine, he dinged the White House for not preemptively imposing financial penalties against Moscow and argued lawmakers “could do more.”
“I’d like to hit him now for the provocation and have sanctions spelled out very clearly,” Graham said. “We’re talking way too much and we’re doing too little.”
“They’re telling us the invasion is imminent, but they’re not telling Putin with clarity what happens if you invade. He should be punished now,” Graham added. “What I can’t get over is that the world is allowing him to do all this without consequence. The guy took took Crimea in 2014. He’s got 100,000 troops amassed on the Ukrainian border and he’s paying no price at all.”
President Joe Biden has warned of swift and severe economic consequences if Russia invades. “We’re prepared to respond decisively,” national security adviser Jake Sullivan reiterated Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” But the administration has so far rebuffed calls to preemptively sanction Moscow.
Bipartisan talks in the Senate led by Foreign Relations Chair Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) and the committee’s top Republican, Sen. Jim Risch of Idaho, aim to produce far-reaching sanctions legislation. Those talks have yet to produce a compromise bill, with Democrats and Republicans still at odds over the scope of some sanctions, though an invasion could spur lawmakers to quickly impose economic penalties on Russian leaders and the country’s financial sector.
Republicans have long insisted the U.S. should impose some sanctions ahead of an invasion, while Democrats and the administration argue those penalties should be held back as a deterrent and imposed after an incursion.
Pentagon chief spokesperson John Kirby reiterated the administration’s position on sanctions in an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” arguing “there’s a deterrent effect by keeping them in reserve.”
“If it’s a deterrent and you use it before the aggression is made, or the transgression is made, then you lose your deterrent effect,” Kirby said. “If you punish somebody for something that they haven’t done yet, then they might as well go ahead and do it.”
Graham predicted the Senate could muster 70 votes for legislation that includes sanctions ahead of an invasion with a waiver.
“We’ve been working in a bipartisan fashion for about three weeks now to come up with pre-invasion, post-invasion sanctions and the White House keeps pushing back,” Graham said. “So, the best thing that could happen is for us to pass the sanctions package. Pre-invasion with a waiver, post-invasion sanctions that would destroy the ruble and cripple the Russian economy so Putin can see it in writing.”
“That might help him decide not to invade,” he said. “But we should be doing more in Congress.”
Most notably, GOP lawmakers have faulted Biden for not sanctioning Russia’s Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline to Germany, which the administration waived penalties on last year to help bolster the American alliance with Berlin. Senators are also haggling over how best to address the pipeline in a sanctions package.
Congress, Graham argued, has “really got to be hard on Nord Stream 2" in a sanctions agreement.

U.S. 'watching very carefully' for phony Russian reason to kick off Ukraine invasion
...
The Biden administration is closely eyeing a potential false flag operation or other pretext for Russia to invade Ukraine, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Sunday.
In an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Sullivan again warned that an incursion could be launched in a matter of days amid a “dramatic acceleration” in Moscow’s military buildup of more than 100,000 troops on the Ukrainian border.
“We also are watching very carefully for the possibility that there is a pretext or a false flag operation to kick off the Russian action in which Russian intelligence services conduct some kind of attack on Russian proxy forces in eastern Ukraine or on Russian citizens, and then blame it on the Ukrainians,” Sullivan said.
He added that Russian media is “laying the groundwork” in “trying to condition their public that some kind of attack by the Ukrainians is imminent.”
“There is a kind of bizarre quality to all of this where the Russians are claiming they are the ones who are under threat, despite the fact that they have amassed more than 100,000 forces ... on the border of their neighbor,” Sullivan said.
In a separate interview with CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sullivan warned, “The world should be prepared for Russia staging a pretext and then launching a potential military action.”
The comments are the latest warning that Moscow may fabricate an attack on Russian territory or troops to justify invading Ukraine after a monthslong military buildup on the border. Top administration officials have also warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin could give the go-ahead for an invasion any day.
The Biden administration has obtained intelligence suggesting Russia plans to stage an attack to falsely pin on Kyiv and justify an invasion, according to reports last week.
The administration has already publicly called out Moscow for potential false flag tactics, charging earlier this month that Russia was weighing filming a fabricated attack by Ukrainian forces to justify launching an invasion.
False flag tactics are used to justify military action by blaming an attack another country. Nazi Germany, for instance, launched the 1939 invasion of Poland that started World War II in Europe with a false flag attack on a German radio station, using attackers dressed as Polish nationals.
The Biden administration’s response to the Russian buildup has drawn bipartisan critiques from lawmakers who contend more weapons should have been sent to Ukraine sooner and that Moscow’s Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline should have been sanctioned.
Still, Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois — one of just two GOP lawmakers to join House Democrats’ investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection — praised the move to publicize a possible fabricated pretext for an invasion, though he added the Nord Stream pipeline should be sanctioned “regardless of what happens in Ukraine.”
“They have done a good job, particularly bringing out intel early, to try to defang any Russian narrative that could come with Ukraine,” Kinzinger told CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “We know about the discussion of a false flag attack. Well, now we’ve made it clear that Russia may do that.”
Another defense hawk, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said he wasn’t sure if the administration’s tactics, including warning of a false flag operation, are effective in pushing back on Putin.
Instead, Graham argued Congress and the administration should levy heavy sanctions on Moscow ahead of an invasion.
“That’s a really good question. I don’t want to ring an alarm bell as much as take action,” he said. “They’re telling us the invasion is imminent. But they’re not telling Putin with clarity what happens if you invade.”

Ukraine news – live: Kiev demands meeting with Russia as Wallace cancels holiday over ‘worsening’ crisis
...
Ukraine has requested a meeting with Russian officials within 48 hours after Moscow “failed” to respond to a request to provide detailed explanations of its military activities on the border.
On Friday, Ukraine’s ministry for foreign affairs officially triggered the demand in accordance with mechanisms enshrined in paragraph three of the Vienna Document - a series of security-based agreements between European states.
“According to the Vienna Document, Russia needs to provide detailed explanation on the objectives, precise location and dates of completion of its military activities, as well as designation, subordination, number and types of formations, as well as types of equipment involved,” Dmytro Kuleba, Ukraine’s foreign minister, said on Friday - giving its neighbour 48 hours to reply.
In a tweet today, Kuleba said Russia had “failed” to respond to its demands.
“Consequently, we take the next step,” he wrote. “We request a meeting with Russia and all participating states within 48 hours to discuss its reinforcement & redeployment along our border & in temporarily occupied Crimea.”
Meanwhile, Ben Wallace, the UK defence secretary, announced on Sunday he was cancelling a family holiday abroad and would be “returning” to focus on the “worsening situation in Ukraine”.
It was not immediately clear where he had been or when he would be returning.

Ukraine criticises UK defence secretary for comparing Russia diplomacy to Nazi appeasement
...
Ukraine has pushed back against claims from the defence secretary Ben Wallace that diplomatic talks with Vladimir Putin have “a whiff of Munich” about them.
Ambassador Vadym Prystaiko said it was wrong to “offend our partners” by drawing parallels with the policy of appeasement which saw Britain and France give the green light for Adolf Hitler to annex the Sudetenland in talks in the German city in 1938.
The defence secretary today cut short a family holiday in order to fly back to the UK amid fears of an imminent Russian invasion of Ukraine.
In an apparent effort to avoid repeating the mistakes of Dominic Raab, who was widely criticised as foreign secretary for remaining on the beach as Afghanistan fell to the Taliban, Mr Wallace announced he was returning to London after just one day because he was “concerned about the worsening situation in Ukraine”.
Mr Wallace said in an interview with The Sunday Times that Moscow could "launch an offensive at any time", with an estimated 130,000 Russian troops and heavy firepower amassed along Ukraine’s border.
"It may be that he just switches off his tanks and we all go home, but there is a whiff of Munich in the air from some in the West," he added.
Kiev has repeatedly urged allies including Britain to tone down warlike rhetoric.
And Mr Prystaiko today warned that the panic being caused by the West sounding the alarm could be playing into president Putin’s hands.
Responding to Mr Wallace’s Munich reference, the diplomat told BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House: "It’s not the best time for us to offend our partners in the world, reminding them of this act which actually not bought peace but the opposite, it bought war.
"There’s panic everywhere not just in people’s minds but in financial markets as well," he added, warning it is "hurting the Ukrainian economy on sort of the same level as people leaving the embassy".
The Royal United Services Institute’s Russia expert Mark Galeotti said that the comments were “unfortunate, not least because it obviously casts the Russians as Nazi Germany.”
For a country “which lost so much in the Second World War, which still calls it the Great Patriotic War” it was a “very neuralgic point,” he said.
Mr Wallace’s cabinet colleague Brandon Lewis sought to clarify the comment, suggesting the defence secretary was referring not to appeasement, but to the way in which hopes that peace could be secured by diplomatic means were dashed by a dictator set on war.
“It is very clear that what he was drawing on was the comparison between the diplomatic attempts in the run up to World War Two and the diplomatic attempts we are all putting in now,” Mr Lewis told Sky News’s Trevor Phillips on Sunday.
“We want a diplomatic outcome, we want a peaceful outcome to this but we do have to be cognisant of the fact that… there are 130,000 troops sitting right there on the border.
“With that kind of accumulation, there is always the possibility and the ability for Russia to move very, very swiftly and very quickly should it decide to do so, which obviously we hope they won’t.”
Mr Lewis said that an imminent incursion by Russia was “entirely possible”, and said the situation was currently in a “balancing act” between “what we hope will be a diplomatic outcome and the realistic possibility that something much more tragic could occur”.
Foreign secretary Liz Truss, who spoke on Saturday with US secretary of state Anthony Blinken, said there were “acute concerns that Russia may launch further military aggression against Ukraine in coming days”. London and Washington were agreed that Moscow will face “massive consequences for any invasion, including severe sanctions”, she said.
But the chair of the Commons foreign affairs committee, Tory MP Tom Tugendhat said that Putin was aware that he cannot hold Ukraine, as the 130,000 troops available to him is “a lot for a border raid but nowhere near enough for an occupation”.
Mr Tugendhat said the “mafia-like” Kremlin chief was more interested in creating chaos and exposing divisions in the West, in order to win kudos both with the Russian population at home and with China, where he has recently sought a closer partnership.
The MP - who recently indicated he wants to run for the Conservative leadership - called on the government to “get serious” in dealing with dirty money from Moscow, by closing UK markets to Russian firms, expelling families linked to the Putin regime and clamping down on corruption.
“There is no need for war,” said Mr Tugendhat. “Even Putin doesn’t really want it. What he wants is for us to serve his interests and through our division show his strength.
“We don’t have to play this game anymore. We must stop pretending treaties matter to these crooks and act.
“It will cost and we’ll have to be serious. But our democracy is being undermined and our alliances could unravel. We know the truth - you can have freedom or corruption, not both. Putin’s conspiracy made it clear - the time has come to choose.”
Meanwhile, US sources attempted to play down reports that intelligence indicated the feared invasion will begin on Wednesday.
American ambassador to Nato Julianne Smith said: “We do not have information that Putin has definitively decided to go in.
“But we did want to warn both our allies, American citizens and Ukraine that we now believe that this attack could happen within days."
Kyiv has insisted its airspace will remain open, after Dutch carrier KLM announced it is suspending flights to the Ukrainian capital.
Mr Wallace arrived back in the UK from Moscow in the early hours of Saturday before heading abroad with his family, but it was understood he had already accepted he would be leaving the holiday alone early rather than having cancelled it on arrival in the light of new developments with Russia.
British and US citizens have been told to leave Ukraine as soon as possible, and the small detachment of UK troops on training missions in the country are due to be withdrawn by the end of the weekend.

Flights to Ukraine halted or redirected
...
MOSCOW — Some airlines have canceled or diverted flights to Ukraine amid warnings from the West that an invasion by Russia is imminent despite intensive weekend talks between Moscow and Washington.
In an hourlong call Saturday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Joe Biden said an invasion of Ukraine would cause “widespread human suffering” and that the West was committed to diplomacy to end the crisis but “equally prepared for other scenarios,” the White House said. It offered no suggestion that the call diminished the threat of an imminent war in Europe.
The White House said Biden would talk with Zelenskyy later Sunday.
On Friday, Biden’s national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, warned that U.S. intelligence shows a Russian invasion could begin within days. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has played down invasion concerns, urging the country to remain calm.
Russia denies it intends to invade Ukraine but has massed well over 100,000 troops near its border and has sent troops to exercises in neighboring Belarus. U.S. officials say Russia’s buildup of firepower has reached the point where it could invade on short notice.
The U.S. picked up intelligence that Russia is looking at Wednesday as a target date, according to a U.S. official familiar with the findings. The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly and did so only on condition of anonymity, would not say how definitive the intelligence was.
“I believe that today in the information space, there is a lot of information,” Zelenskyy said Saturday. “We understand all the risks, we understand that there are risks. If you, or anyone else, has additional information regarding a 100% Russian invasion starting on the 16th, please forward that information to us.”
Reflecting the West’s concerns, Dutch airline KLM has canceled flights to Ukraine until further notice, the company said Saturday.
Dutch sensitivity to potential danger in Ukrainian airspace is high following the 2014 shooting down of a Malaysian jetliner flying from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur as it flew over a part of eastern Ukraine held by Russia-backed rebels. All 298 people aboard died, including 198 Dutch citizens.
The Ukrainian charter airline SkyUp said Sunday its flight from Madeira, Portugal, to Kyiv was diverted to the Moldovan capital of Chisinau after the plane’s Irish lessor said it was banning flights in Ukrainian airspace.
Ukrainian presidential spokesman Serhii Nykyforov told The Associated Press that Ukraine has not closed its airspace. A statement from the Infrastructure Ministry said: “Some carriers are experiencing difficulties associated with fluctuations in the insurance markets.”
The Putin-Biden conversation, following a call between Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron earlier in the day, came at a critical moment for what has become the biggest security crisis between Russia and the West since the Cold War. U.S. officials believe they have mere days to prevent an invasion and enormous bloodshed in Ukraine.

Boris Johnson warns of possibility of Ukraine invasion in ‘next 48 hours’


...
Boris Johnson has warned a Russian invasion of Ukraine could come as early as the “next 48 hours”, as he urged Vladimir Putin to step back from the “edge of a precipice”.

The prime minister stressed the evidence was “pretty clear” that the Kremlin was planning such a move, with an estimated 130,000 Russian troops massing on the Ukrainian border.

His remarks came as Liz Truss, the foreign secretary, prepares to chair an emergency Cobra meeting to “to discuss the consular response to the crisis”, after British nationals were urged to leave the Eastern European country on Friday.

On a visit to Scotland, the prime minister, who will chair a full Cobra meeting on Tuesday, told reporters: “This is a very, very dangerous, difficult situation, we are on the edge of a precipice but there is still time for President (Vladimir) Putin to step back.”

Mr Johnson also called for more dialogue and urged Russia to avoid a “disastrous” invasion, as he said the Russian president needed to understand the economic and political consequences if he launched an invasion of Ukraine.

Asked whether an invasion could be hours or days away, he replied: “The signs are from president [Joe] Biden they are at least planning for something that could take place as early as the next 48 hours. That is extremely concerning.” (выделено а.п.).

Mr Johnson said “the world needs to learn the lesson of 2014” when not enough was done to move away from Russian gas and oil following the Russian action in eastern Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea.

“What I think all European countries need to do now is get Nord Stream out of the bloodstream,” he said. “Yank out that hypodermic drip feed of Russian hydrocarbons that is keeping so many European economies going.

“We need to find alternative sources of energy and we need to get ready to impose some very, very severe economic consequences on Russia.”

Downing Street also reiterated comments from the armed forces minister, James Heappey, who told broadcasters on Monday morning that there was a “grave possibility of invasion this week” as tensions continue to build on the continent”.

A No 10 spokesperson said: “This afternoon the foreign secretary will chair a Cobr meeting to discuss the consular response to the crisis in Ukraine following Friday’s update to travel advice.

“The prime minister will receive a security briefing from his intelligence chiefs today. Tomorrow the prime minister will chair a full meeting of Cobr to discuss the UK’s response to the current situation.” (выделено а.п.).

Russia has surrounded Ukraine on three sides. Here's where an invasion could be launched

...
Russia has amassed more than 100,000 troops near Ukraine's border in recent weeks, according to US estimates, raising fears from Western and Ukrainian intelligence officials that an invasion could be imminent.
As frantic diplomatic efforts are made to avert war, analysts are warning that Russia's military poses an immediate threat to Ukraine.
But if an invasion were to occur, it is not clear where it would begin. Russia has created pressure points on three sides of Ukraine -- in Crimea to the south, on the Russian side of the two countries' border, and in Belarus to the north.
Here are the three fronts Ukraine and the West are watching, and the recent Russian movements detected in each.

Boris Johnson eyes Baltic and Nordic states amid Ukraine crisis
...
LONDON — Boris Johnson is launching a fresh diplomatic offensive aimed at Europe’s Nordic and Baltic states as he tries to “get Russia to step back from the brink” of invading Ukraine, Downing Street said on Sunday.
The U.K. prime minister will travel to mainland Europe again later this week as he seeks to “cement and broaden the Western alliance,” No. 10 said in a statement. Defense Secretary Ben Wallace, who cut short a family holiday amid the “worsening situation,” will also meet counterparts in Brussels this week.
Transatlantic policymakers have placed an increased emphasis on defense arrangements across NATO’s eastern flank since Russia’s controversial annexation of Crimea in March 2014.
Finland and Sweden are not members of the NATO alliance and are therefore not covered by its collective defense clause, but have been working with the military alliance to share more information and coordinate training and exercises.
“There is still a window of opportunity for de-escalation and diplomacy, and the prime minister will continue to work tirelessly alongside our allies to get Russia to step back from the brink,” a Downing Street spokesperson said.
American officials have told POLITICO that intelligence suggests Russia could invade this Wednesday.
Johnson is receiving daily intelligence briefings on the build-up of Russian forces, No. 10 said. British forces who had been providing anti-tank missile training in Ukraine were due to leave this weekend.
The U.K. government on Friday urged all British nationals to leave Ukraine immediately while commercial means remain available. Only a core team of U.K. diplomats, including ambassador Melinda Simmons, remain.

Liz Truss is right – Putin will be the biggest loser of a war with Ukraine
...
It’s deeply unfashionable to praise Liz Truss. She used her recent trip to Russia as if it were a promotion for Instagram. She was under-briefed and ritually humiliated by the Russians during her faux fur-trimmed visit to Moscow.
She seems to lack the confidence, authority and nuance to suggest any diplomatic solutions to the crisis, or some imaginative move to throw the Russians off-guard. New in post, she was maybe too cautious, too worried about making an error that would wreck her career, so she played safe with the simple messages. Maybe she just knows that it’s all up to Joe Biden anyhow. Brexit or not, Europe is too divided to make a difference.
Yet, all that said, she was right. A war would be bad for Russia. A full-on, conventional, old-school, tank-driven Russian invasion of Ukraine would be a bloody and costly affair, quite apart from the effects of economic sanctions (which haven’t made much impact on Russian foreign policy so far, and have rarely worked historically).
Truss declared that Vladimir Putin “has not learned the lessons of history”. In what must have seemed an act of impertinence to Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, this supposedly dumb and mute woman informed him that his government was about to commit “a massive strategic mistake”.
“Invasion will only lead to a terrible quagmire and loss of life, as we know from the Soviet-Afghan war and conflict in Chechnya,” Truss said. To which the Russian response, unspoken, was: “Yeah, thanks for that, but we know our history, our people and our army better than you do.”
Truss was only wrong, though, in the sense that she wasn’t quite blunt enough. She should have said that this is a war that Russia cannot conceivably win. What is Putin’s end game? What will the future look like? Is there some notion in the Kremlin that, after a short lightning attack killing thousands of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians, Russian soldiers will be greeted in Kiev by tearful, grateful, joyful Ukrainians throwing flowers at them and hugging them with joy for their “liberation”? Is the Russian Air Force going to bomb schools and hospitals? Is its navy going to sink Ukrainian vessels? Is it going to paralyse the country’s digital infrastructure? And then rebuild everything?
Does Putin seriously imagine that the present Ukrainian government will sign a humiliating “treaty of friendship”, and accept, well, what? Puppet status and the permanent stationing of Russian troops in Ukraine, just like the old East Germany or the other satellite states of the eastern Bloc?
Perhaps, as often happened in the old “people’s republics” of the eastern bloc, Putin will find some stray politician to become president of the new, ironically-named, People’s Republic of Ukraine. It could be a newly Balkanised state, or dismembered, with the eastern regions joining the Russian Federation after a bogus referendum.
The nominal rulers of the rump Ukraine will try to follow anti-western, anti-EU, in fact anti-Ukrainian policies, making constant trouble with Poland. How will the Russians stop Ukrainian refugees fleeing to the west? Build a huge wall? Border posts with dogs and machine gun posts? Barbed wire?
It cannot work. There will be long-term resistance in Ukraine, a vast country, covertly or openly supported by financial and military assistance from the west. Like the old eastern bloc in the Cold War, there can be no permanent peace between the west and Russia while it acts as an imperialist power, and detente will always be temporary.
Such will be the resistance to Russian rule and post-occupation chaos that the new Ukraine will be less like the old docile states of Eastern Europe, or even Chechnya or Russian sponsored-rule in Afghanistan, than Vietnam or post-2003 Iraq. It’s obvious now that the Americans and their allies deposed Saddam Hussein (actually an unpopular leader, unlike Ukraine’s democratic government), with no plan as to what to do with the country afterwards. It is doubtful that Russia will know what to do with Ukraine, either.
If Putin thinks he can replay the old Tsarist/Stalinist colonial playbook he is mistaken. It cannot work in the modern world in a relatively large and advanced state the size of Ukraine. It would drain Russian resources, manpower and morale.
In nations such as East Germany, Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia, the occasional uprising or attempts at liberalisation were usually met with a show of force by the Red Army and the removal of the dissident, counter-revolutionary elements, though the relative success of the Solidarity movement in Poland suggested that if a country is big enough and the movement substantial enough, and prepared to compromise, then the resistance can have some effect, even on a superpower.
On the whole, though, Russia kept the lid on dissent through brute force, massacres and imprisoning people, but the peoples of the occupied countries never accepted their domination and especially once they came to realise freedom was a possibility, along with democracy and rising prosperity. The ex-communist pro-Soviet/Russian parties barely survived into the new world. Every east European state that was once in the Warsaw Pact has joined the EU, Nato, or both, with the partial exception of Albania.
Ukraine has tasted its independence, and it likes it. It is determined to fight, to resist, to protect what it has. Unlike shattered nations after 1945, it has much more to lose, and it is a functioning modern democratic state. It is bigger and has more effective and better equipped armed forces than anything the Russians have faced since the end of the Second World War. Putin will get a run for his money.
Even if he wins his conventional war, he will lose the unconventional war that follows. He can only survive a long economic war with the west by relying on China, which is not an attractive thing for him. The economic sanctions won’t prevent him from his aggression, but they can make life poorer for the average Russian, and that will be bad for his position. In the end he has to rule with the consent of the Russian people; as Tsar Nicolas II and the old Communists who ran the Soviet Union discovered, you should not take that for granted.
Putin’s Cold War with the west, including cultural, sporting and diplomatic isolation, will stretch for decades into the future. In the end, faced with a distressed people who’d rather have peace and a western standard of living, Putin himself may turn out to be the biggest casualty of this war.
The funny thing is that Putin was there, in East Berlin, the last time Russia tried and failed to subjugate free peoples by force. He managed to save the KGB files and send them back to Moscow before it was too late. Can he really want the successors to the KGB to open up in Kiev and run a police state in Ukraine, with Stasi-style collaborators? Does he think he has an alternative to the rule of Ukraine by force and fear?
Truss was right that the lessons of history and the tide of history is against this putative invasion. Putin should have a word with Mikhail Gorbachev, or preferably with himself.

Here's the timeline of Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva's failed drug test
...
The doping scandal surrounding Kamila Valieva, the 15-year-old Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) figure skater, has rocked the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics.
She was allowed to compete despite testing positive for the banned heart drug Trimetazidine, which is commonly used to treat people with angina. The failed test only came to light during the Winter Olympics, and it remains unclear if the controversy will see the gold medal revoked.
Here's a timeline of the events:
Dec. 25, 2021: A drug sample is taken from Valieva at the Russian Figure Skating Championships in St. Petersburg.
Jan. 15, 2021: Valieva wins the 2022 European Championships in Tallinn, Estonia.
Feb. 1, 2022: Valieva arrives in Beijing for the Winter Olympics.
Feb. 7, 2022: Valieva helps the ROC win gold in the figure skating team event at Beijing 2022, landing the first ever quadruple jump by a woman in Olympic competition.
Feb. 7, 2022: A lab accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) in Stockholm, Sweden, confirms an adverse analytical finding in Valieva's sample, WADA said.
Some background: The Russian Anti-Doping Agency's (RUSADA) laboratory is currently suspended by WADA. Hence, testing is outsourced and carried out by WADA-accredited laboratories. In this instance, testing was designated to the Stockholm laboratory.
Feb. 8, 2022: Valieva is notified and provisionally suspended by RUSADA.
Feb. 8, 2022: The medal ceremony for the figure skating team event is postponed. Later, reports emerge of a failed drugs test by a member of the ROC team.
Feb. 9, 2022: Valieva challenges provisional suspension; RUSADA's Disciplinary Anti-Doping Committee lifts the suspension.
Feb. 10, 2022 : Valieva trains as normal at the Capital Indoor Stadium in Beijing.
Feb. 11, 2022: The International Testing Agency (ITA) confirms Valieva failed a test for a banned substance in December, adding it will appeal RUSADA's decision to lift the suspension at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on behalf of the IOC. WADA and the International Skating Union (ISU) also said they will appeal.
Feb. 13, 2022: CAS conducts a hearing into the case. WADA says it will investigate Valieva's entourage — as a minor, Valieva is not the only person of interest in the case.
Feb. 14, 2022: CAS rules Valieva can continue competing at the Olympics. A decision on the team gold medals will be made during "other proceedings," CAS said.

Kamila Valieva won't feature in medal ceremonies despite being cleared to compete, says IOC


...
Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva won't feature in any medal ceremonies at Beijing 2022, according to the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
Earlier on Monday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decided to clear Valieva to compete at the Beijing Games following an hours-long hearing on Sunday.
CAS said in a statement it had decided Valieva, 15, should be allowed to compete due to "exceptional circumstances," including specific provisions linked to her status as a "protected person" under the World Anti-Doping Code because she is a minor.
But despite helping the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) to gold in the team event, a medal ceremony for the event did not take place and the IOC said it would "not be appropriate" for it to go ahead until a full investigation has taken place.
The IOC also announced that if Valieva were to finish in the top three in the individual event — which takes place on Tuesday — no flower ceremony or medal ceremony would take place.
In the statement, the IOC said it will organize "dignified medal ceremonies once the case of Ms Valieva has been concluded."

WADA "disappointed" by CAS decision on Valieva; Canada says decision "extremely unfortunate"
...
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has said it is "disappointed" at the Court of Arbitration for Sport's (CAS) decision to clear Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva to compete at the Beijing Winter Olympics.
CAS announced its decision following an hours-long hearing on Sunday, saying in a statement it had decided Valieva, 15, should be allowed to compete due to "exceptional circumstances," including specific provisions linked to her status as a "protected person" under the World Anti-Doping Code because she is a minor.
Having initially appealing the case to CAS alongside the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Skating Union (ISU), WADA reacted to the news Valieva would be able to continue competing in Beijing.
"While WADA has not received the reasoned award, it appears that the CAS panel decided not to apply the terms of the Code, which does not allow for specific exceptions to be made in relation to mandatory provisional suspensions for 'protected persons,' including minors.
"Concerning the analysis of the athlete's sample, WADA always expects Anti-Doping Organizations to liaise with the laboratories in order to ensure they expedite the analysis of samples so that the results are received prior to athletes traveling to or competing in a major event, such as the Olympic or Paralympic Games and, where applicable, conduct results management of the cases related to such athletes.
"According to information received by WADA, the sample in this case was not flagged by RUSADA as being a priority sample when it was received by the anti-doping laboratory in Stockholm, Sweden. This meant the laboratory did not know to fast-track the analysis of this sample.
"As previously announced, under the terms of the Code, when a minor is involved in an anti-doping case, there is a requirement to investigate that athlete’s support personnel. RUSADA has already indicated it has begun that process. In addition, WADA’s independent Intelligence and Investigations Department will look into it."
Meanwhile, the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) called the situation "extremely unfortunate and sad for the athletes."
Canada finished fourth in the team event which the Russian Olympic Committee team won and which Valieva was a part of.
"The COC is fully committed to clean sport and we firmly believe that no one involved in doping or other corrupt practices has a place in the Olympic Movement," Tricia Smith, President of the COC, said in a statement.
Smith added: “While the COC was not permitted to be formally involved in the CAS appeal process, we have been following the details of the case closely and doing what we can to ensure the protection of the interests of Canadian figure skating athletes and all clean athletes. While we trust that the CAS decision was the result of a fair process, we are extremely disappointed with this result.”

Russian Olympic Committee: Important to conduct "full-fledged objective investigation" into Valieva case

...
The Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) says that it is "extremely important to conduct a full-fledged objective investigation" into the Kamila Valieva case.
In a statement on Monday, the ROC said it "continues to consistently defend the rights and interests of Russian athletes," but that they were keen to "establish all the circumstances of the situation" surrounding Valieva's positive doping test.
Earlier Monday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) decided to clear Valieva to compete at the Beijing Games following an hours-long hearing on Sunday.
CAS said in a statement it had decided Valieva, 15, should be allowed to compete due to "exceptional circumstances," including specific provisions linked to her status as a "protected person" under the World Anti-Doping Code because she is a minor.

US Olympic & Paralympic Committee "disappointed" by Kamila Valieva case

...
The United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee said the Kamila Valieva case "appears to be another chapter in the systemic and pervasive disregard for clean sport by Russia."
“We are disappointed by the message this decision sends. It is the collective responsibility of the entire Olympic community to protect the integrity of sport and to hold our athletes, coaches and all involved to the highest of standards. Athletes have the right to know they are competing on a level playing field. Unfortunately, today that right is being denied," said USOPC CEO Sarah Hirshland.
“We know this case is not yet closed, and we call on everyone in the Olympic Movement to continue to fight for clean sport on behalf of athletes around the world.”

US figure skater Madison Hubbell: "Huge disappointment" not to get team medals
...
American skater Madison Hubbell said the possibility that Team USA won’t be awarded the figure skating team event medals before the Beijing Games end would be a "huge disappointment."
Hubbell is yet to receive her team event silver as the scandal over Russian skater Kamila Valieva's failed drug test continues to delay the awarding of medals for the event in which the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) won gold.
The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Monday ruled Valieva could compete but didn't examine whether there was merit in her failed drug test, or on whether the ROC should lose the gold.
"We’ve been focusing on this individual event, knowing that this decision was up in the air. I believe there is no done deal yet. I know that all of the people in the team event, our main hope was that we would receive the medals here all together as a team," Hubbell said in a news conference after winning bronze in the ice dance Monday.
"So if that really is the case, then we miss that opportunity, I think it’s a huge disappointment. It’s something we accomplished together, and it’s not the same at all to have that experience taken away. So my heart goes out to the rest of my teammates, and hope we’ll find something to celebrate together."
International Olympic Committee spokesperson Mark Adams said Monday it is likely the medals in the team event won't be sorted out during the Games.

Digital-маркетинг в России 2022: 15 главных трендов по мнению экспертаDigital-маркетинг в России 2022: 15 главных трендов по мнению эксперта
С уходом Meta с российского рынка основные инструменты digital-маркетинга значительно изменились. Это повлекло за собой формирование новых тенденций, которые уже сейчас демонстрируют свою эффективность в продвижении товаров и услуг брендов. О главных российских трендах интернет-маркетинга в 2022 году расскажет Юрий Косурин, независимый SEO-эксперт, сооснователь digital агентства UP Digital.
Что не запрещено, то размещено. Рекламодатели возвращаются в InstagramЧто не запрещено, то размещено. Рекламодатели возвращаются в Instagram
Рекламодатели перестают интерпретировать объявление деятельности Meta по ведению Instagram и Facebook экстремистской как запрет на рекламу на этих площадках. Как рассказали “Ъ” в трех маркетинговых агентствах, количество заявок на рекламу у блогеров в Instagram начало расти. Компании исходят из того, что не нарушают закон, заказывая рекламу непосредственно у блогеров, а не через и так закрытый рекламный кабинет. Юристы разделяют такую интерпретацию, но отмечают, что для безопасности стоит не упоминать Instagram даже в документах.

PWA или Прогрессивное Веб-Приложение – это технология, которая позволяет не скачивать приложение на свой смартфон из магазина, а адаптирует уже имеющийся сайт, визуально делая его похожим на приложение, и позволяет установить иконку на рабочий стол смартфона. Но казалось бы – зачем все это? Вполне неплохо живется и с традиционным скачиванием различных приложений, в том числе и магазинов онлайн-ретейлеров. На самом деле, мы пользуемся PWA гораздо чаще, чем кажется. И этому есть ряд причин, о которых рассказали специалисты компании «Ваш кадровый ресурс».
