The Russian invasion of Ukraine

Members of the UN Council walking out on the speech of Russia's Minister of Foreign Affairs

Closing statement from Liz Truss, UK Minster of F.A.:
Mr Lavrov's speech was misinformation and did not deserve the members' attention. Russia is isolated and should be ashamed to sit here in the UN council.

History time: In 1996 Ukraine handed over nuclear weapons to Russia "in exchange for a guarantee never to be threatened or invaded".


The fine print probably said: "Until führer notice."
Some more sporting bans:

Russia and Belarus banned from international ice skating, skiing, basketball and track competition

Belarus was no shocker, but I am kinda surprised by Serbia. Did they enter the EU, already?
I love this idea. In WWII the Germans had to resort to methamphetamines because of lack of caffeine.
