    Why is Victory Day such a big deal in Russia?

    Vladimir Putin has been sworn in as Russia's president for a new six-year term, just days before Russia’s annual Victory Day military parade on 9 May.

Less Gatehouse

Good biweekly podcast for its stories of Ukrainian civilians. Not as good a The Telegraph’s “Ukraine: The Latest,” but good. The analysis improves significantly whenever Gabriel Gatehouse is absent. Speaking of appeasement, the lack of any significant pushback to “Realist” Mearsheimer denial of Ukrainian agency and support for Russian imperialism during his interview was atrocious.

Unprofessional and biased

I gave it a try for almost a year. Everything is told from a left point of view. Reposting is below basic reporting standards
