The unfree world - Russia


Russia

Russia was one of the worst countries in the world for most of the 20th century. So it is perhaps no surprise that it is still an appalling dictatorship, human rights abuser, and threat to other countries.

But it is still sad. After the fall of the evil Soviet Empire in 1989, we had hopes of so much better.

  




Freedom House ranked Russia "Partly Free" until 2003.
From 2004 on, it is ranked "Not Free".
Extract here from 2010 report.



RT, Putin's propaganda TV, is endorsed by British fascist Nick Griffin. Says it all.



John McCain had Putin's number in 2007: "when I looked in Putin's eyes I saw 3 letters: a 'K', a 'G' and a 'B'."

Posted here on 10 March 2022, at the time of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which some victim-blamers were trying to claim was "provoked" by Eastern European countries wanting to join NATO.



Russia attacks Ukraine for no reason, 2022.
Thousands dead. Millions of refugees.
Russia is a terrorist state.
All global trade with Russia must stop until the Putin regime falls.

The world must arm Ukraine. Russia must be defeated.
Putin is a war criminal who must be deposed and put on trial.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

The Twitter dark age, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. With the arrival of Elon Musk in 2022, Twitter's dark age of censorship may end. Let's hope so.
