April 05, 2022

Putin’s regime justifies eight years of war and occupation of Ukrainian territories with a “noble” goal — to protect Russian-speaking Slavs from the supposedly rotten West and from Nazi radicals. In the Kremlin, they call it denazification. But the Russians themselves cannot be called anything other than fascists, while the notorious “Russian world” is nothing more than revived Hitler’s concept of “dominant race”, informs “Dom”.
