This is a mid speculation that they were the result of a Ukrainian attack. Russia denies any aircraft were damaged in Tuesday's blast or that any attack took place. Ukrainian officials have stopped short of publicly claiming responsibility for the explosions, but they are poking fun at Russia's explanation that a careless smoker might have caused munitions at the air base to catch fire and blow up. Analysts also doubt that explanation and say the Ukrainians could have used anti ship missiles to strike the base. If so, it would be a major escalation in the war.

God, In His Mercy, Is Forcing Us to Choose

"In his mercy is forcing us to choose. We can no longer drift along ignorant. You see these things, and you increasingly have to choose to look away, look away, look away. And at some point, you can't look away, and if you look away, you're guilty, because these things you ought not to look away. At some point, something is triggered and you say, wait a second. Wait a second. You did what? What happened? For me, one of those moments was the Hunter Biden laptop cover up. I thought when in October of 2020, the legacy media completely not only refused to cover what would have been just one of the most important stories ever. I mean, it makes Watergate look like a joke. They were not only refused to cover it, but then demonized en masse anyone who spoke about it and called it Russian disinformation. And I thought this is the through the looking glass moment because I've seen many crazy things, but this I didn't think this could happen. But the level of desperation of the Marxist maniacs is such that they will now say and do anything. They've sold their souls, they don't care about truth. They don't care about liberty and reality and what it's just whatever we need to do to win. So that was a moment for me when I just thought, or at least it was one of those milestones where I said, I am not going to shut up. I will be the last one to shut up. I couldn't care less if you kill me. I'm not going to live as a slave. I'm going to speak freely by God's grace.

Paul Manafort Admits Everything Was a Lie

"Paul Manafort finally made his first public emission he shared polling data with konstantin kilimnik. He says the purpose of sharing the data was not to get Trump elected to make money for himself. They're all the same. I mean, it was both actually, but he said it passed the data to Russian spies, according to the US Treasury Department, which was characterized the data as sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy, a Manafort acknowledgment contradicts his earlier denials during obviously the Mueller investigation that he had anything to do with the transfer sensitive campaign data. It also differs from the account he gives in his memoir, which he concedes only that he presented limnic with talking points on polling data that was already public. The data I shared with him, he said, was a combination of public information and stuff that was old. It was one of his primary lines of defense the data he funneled to kilimnik was essentially worthless. Contrary to Manafort's claim, the data was not from the spring. It was collected in mid July 2 weeks before the meeting with kilimnik. So what we already knew has now been proven everything he said was a lie.

I'm going to take a moment to say a few words about the so called inflation reduction act that we are debating this evening. And I say so called, by the way, because according to the CBO and other economic organizations about study this bill, it will in fact have a minimal impact on inflation.

She kneels during the national anthem. Under a normal administration, I believe Britney would already be home. We saw that with the ball brother with Lamar, I get them all confused. When Trump got these prisoners home, but now it seems as if we're doing this elaborate prisoner swap with the merchant of death, how do prisoner swaps usually work and why is this so outrageous what we're entertaining right now? Well, I think the first thing to say is that the State Department has a whole bureau that deals with this detained Americans. And you know, it's a very, very slow process. If you commit a crime in another country, we usually let the other country kind of go through the machinations of its illegal process. We demand access, there's consular affairs individuals, Americans working overseas in the embassies who will go see the Americans detained. It's a very slow process and we try not to jump forward on legal processes. But there are times when detaining detained American is so outrageous that the political types and usually the NSC or The White House jump in and say this is unacceptable. We're not waiting.

When JFK Took Office, We Were Not Winning the Space Race

"The space race was something that was we were not winning. When a Kennedy came into office, we were not winning the space race. In fact, we were behind to Russia in the space race. Yuri Gagarin's space flight in the 12th of April in 1961 was a major embarrassment for John Kennedy because he was just, I mean, just a few months after the inaugural space that we have talked about here on the podcast, this is when it happens. And until that point, he had frankly Kennedy had not taken the space race very seriously. But he was shocked at the global response to Russia's triumph. They became an even more heightened sense of paranoia. Is Russia going to do a space? Are we safe anymore? Is Russia going to take over? All of this was part of the calculus when he first came in, was coming into office and then is this progressed. With all the other issues that he had going on, this presented a problem that he wanted to fix, we're going to talk about it here in a little bit more. How he began to look at he began to set The White House in motion to our space program to build it up to make it not only ahead of the Russians, but actually accomplish things.

Mall of America Locked Down After Shooting

"Breaking news developing right now in the mall of America is on lockdown due to a shooting. Now, I know some people would like to imagine that this is another active shooter situation with rifles so they can ban guns, but it seems like it's an isolated situation to be confirmed as an isolated situation according to the mall. There's a short video that they posted on Twitter that shows a man walking into the Nike store while shouting and a sound of three apparent gunshots can be heard. Danny, I don't know how this is probably not the person here. Danny raining 22 Minneapolis student was at the mall with friends when announcer came out. Okay, so I don't think that that was him. This probably was a witness. This person said that about 75 people were at the small room, they did not hear any gunshots fired, but saw people running away, the mall marked the 30th anniversary of his opening on August the 11th. And was placed on lockdown New Year's Eve last year when two people were shot during a fight. One man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and another was grazed. So right now it's developing, but it appears to be a isolated situation.

"Brittany griner, her excuse was that she has medical marijuana and she decided or she accidentally left the marijuana in a bag because she was packing in an expedited fashion. She was rushing. And any man in America knows. Let me just explain it like this. Don't get mad at me. Women, they have a whole bunch of stuff to pack and they get crazy when they pack in all kinds of stuff. I can see how a woman can forget a vape pen or whatever in a luggage. However, Brittany griner is a man, or at least in her relationship she looked like the man in the other girl looked like a girl. So her masculinity makes me believe that she aligns more with men and you know men we ain't packing Harley anything. It's no way we gonna accidentally put a pen in there because we only got 5 shirts in three underwear. And we gone for a whole month. Women got makeup in there. And if they time them up correctly, they gotta put them things in there. And so you got a whole bunch of stuff that women are packing. But Brittany griner, she dressed like a dude. She acted like a dude. She's probably not packing that much stuff.

"russian " Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"Younger version of rusty? What did you think of that element of it? First of all, I love Annie Murphy. It's actually kind of fun to see her in a role that's not her character in Schitt's Creek for one. But it was kind of a revelation because she sort of channeling what Elizabeth Ashley does. But this is set in 1982, in this case. And so she's younger, a little bit more vibrant in some ways, still kind of has like the bit of the spark, but not quite as like weathered by time by smoking a pack a day. A day of cigarettes like her voice is dead. That doesn't have that husk yet. Yeah. She seems like a person who has kind of like lived a life, right? Like the older version has lived a dang life. And I think that dynamic is so interesting because she's kind of parenting nor at the same time. I think to pivot back to something you were saying about the initial episodes, not quite having the same propulsive Ness. You know, I was wondering how much of that was the difference in both like the setup of the concept, you know, the way that the time travel versed like the video game Groundhog Day sort of thing. There's like a rhythm to those early episodes of the first season of Russian doll, where she dies, she dies, she dies in kind of his reborn each time. It's very snappy. It's edited, you hear the music of Harry Nielsen every single time. There's not quite that same propulsive thrust. In this season. The propulsive Ness that was missing from this season definitely I think one of the things that makes this season interesting is that Russian doll, the first season, they're dying over and over again. And they don't know when they're going to die. Whereas here, it's more of a choice, like once Nadia and Alan figure out when I take the 6th train, this is going to happen. They don't necessarily, at least the way I understood it and maybe I misinterpreted it, but it doesn't seem like any other train or any other method will get them to that place. They have to take the 6th grade. And so knowing that they keep making those choices to go back. I think it makes a huge difference in the shape of the show and the way the show approaches these things is that they are choosing to go back in time and experience this as opposed to the first season. And that to me gives it an extra level of heft and really ups the stakes in a way that I found really fascinating and appreciate about the show. At the end of the day though, I did still find it hard to get into, but that didn't make, especially once we get to the end the last several episodes. And I was able to understand sort of where the show was going. I was able to really dig into it more. And I think it found the rhythm. I think I had to learn how to watch this season and the language changed a little bit. The language changed the aesthetics changed and that is natural. That is the way it should be. And so I don't want to sound like I hate it because I really found so much to really love about it, especially the ruthie character. I'm not going to lie, I was shedding a tear at the end when our beloved ruthie passes on. But I think the way that it ends in the way that it is about accepting both the past and the present and that things end, I think, is what makes this show despite all of the challenges I had. Still, to me, such a great exercise in existentialism, grief, parental intergenerational trauma, all of those things. We've mentioned everything everywhere all at once on the show a lot. But I feel like this is a part of a bigger thing that's happening within pop culture right now of characters trying to wrestle with the things that have been passed on from before them from their parents and from their family and wrestling with that. And I'm curious where you think this stands within this cohort of things like that. What makes this of the same mind as those other projects? Really what this show is about is connection and grappling with the past. And I think so many movies and shows right now are dealing with that because I think we're sort of at this point where we are sort of wondering to know what are our connections to how we got to where we are, whether that's historically or personally, I think there's this searching feeling that we're having where we feel like a little untethered. And so these kind of shows, I think, or movies, allow us to grapple with that history to kind of get into our own psyche a little bit ourselves. And wonder, how do we be present right now? Natasha Lyonne has sort of spoken about how this show in its second season where the first season was sort of them embracing life again in some ways. This is sort of like now that you're here, what are you going to do with the time that you have left? And I think ultimately this show by delving so deeply into sort of like understanding her mother the sacrifices of her grandmother, understanding the mental illness of her mother and not only like the chaos at a creative, but what it felt like. There's something about this show that also is like tethered to immigrants. And the experience of leaving a country to go someplace else and the future generation is wondering, what are my connections? Am I American am I from where I am elsewhere? And her traveling back to Budapest in this season is sort of her trying to get back to her roots to understand where sure she's looking for this gold, but really she's trying to understand her grandmother. Yeah. And particularly with the Holocaust, I think, the ties to that is this culture was like literally robbed from them. Their wealth, their belongings, their candlesticks, their paintings, their family photos was all just like completely gone. So you find yourself in this new country and you find yourself making a life for yourself without really processing the grief not only of the people who are no longer here, it's implied that Vera's family has already been sent to the camps. So she doesn't even have her family, but also doesn't have whatever was lost in their culture. And I think that having not just Nadia experienced that, but then also Allen again going back and sort of learning about his grandmother and the sacrifices she made. And also learning that even though life didn't turn out quite the way she had planned it to, she was still in the end satisfied. She was able to find satisfaction out of life and having him learn this. And just the mere fact of both of them having to learn this by becoming their mother or their grandmother. It's such an interesting twist on yes, like the Back to the Future. Instead of instead of just like, oh, I might make out with my mother. I actually am my mother. And my grandmother. It's kind of beautiful in that way. Like, the only way to really understand truly what their life was like. Particularly for Alan, who is embodying his grandmother at a time that's Soviet East Berlin and she's an African woman studying there and him sort of grappling with the choices like how do I help while also realizing that you can't help you can't interfere with like this time travel and the choices you make are just the choices that you make and you live with them and kind of found out like his grandmother was totally fine. Making those choices for the choices that were presented to you were at that time. Charlotte Copley plays chaz, who's the boyfriend of Chloë Sevigny and for the most part, he's just kind of like your typical sleazy New York dirtbag boyfriend, right?

The cast of season also includes Greta Lee as Nadia's friend Maxine and Elizabeth Ashley and Annie Murphy as the older and younger versions respectively of ruthie. Nadia's close family friend and surrogate parent. The show was created by Leon, Amy Poehler and Leslie headland, and it's now streaming on Netflix. So Mike, tell me about how you felt about season two of Russian doll. Now, we talked a little bit about it before this. And you mentioned that this season in particular really struck a personal note for you. Yeah, so, you know, I was a huge fan of this first season. I think this season, what I appreciated was that it was trying to do something different. Now, that first season was a very self contained story. I think a lot of people were sort of like, why do we need more of this? It was so it has such a perfect ending in some ways, maybe a little bit ambiguous where you're like, I don't know what this means, but there was enough great writing around it that sort of made you go, okay, I think what they were doing, they set out to do they're done. But I just love this universe. I think the characters were just really fun, like Leon, I think is just doing like, iconic work here. I think she is sort of doing a spin on her own persona, but turned up just like cranked up to like that 11 setting where Andrew dice clay and Colombo live, you know, sort of this grumbling acerbic witty hilarious kind of self deprecating but very selfish person. And I think I just wanted to see more of the sort of pain that they kind of alluded to in this first season. You know, that first season, it was grappling with this life spinning from being like this self destructive person to embracing community embracing people to help you being vulnerable enough to be loved and reciprocate that love back. And I think that's kind of what eventually broke that time loop. And I think this season is doing something similar, but in a different way. I think she is presented with an opportunity where she can undo the past or fix the past or set the past straight where so she thinks. Or so she thinks, right? And so she kind of goes on this quest that's sort of like this mcguffin to like, as you said in the intro, like find this gold, this missing goal that she kind of helps steal, but also unwittingly does so. What she's really trying to find is closure, and what she's really trying to find is understanding for her past. Despite all these trappings of science fiction Y things and all these references to history and whatever, it's really a story about mothers and daughters about grandparents. It's about surrogate families, and it's about kind of understanding the sacrifices that our grandparents or our parents made for better and for worse. The mistakes that they made for better and for worse to make us have we are. So for me, the season just really landed because despite all of the fun whack ado stuff that's happening, it's just doing like this very heartfelt thing at the same time. Yeah, and I mean, that was also what season one was doing in a way. It sort of draws you in with the premise. And then as it keeps going, it gets deeper and deeper and you're like, oh, this is way more than I anticipated. It's a Trojan tourist. Absolutely. Or a Russian doll, obviously. It's interesting because I thought that this season, it had that challenge, you know, of like the first season, as you already mentioned, feeling like a perfect kind of capsule, like the ending while ambiguous, it still felt like a final moment. You felt emotionally that these characters her and Allen have reached a point where they have learned to love themselves and also learn how to love other people in the process. And what season two, it looks a little bit more not outward, but it definitely expands that universe. And I found this season to be at least for me more challenging to enjoy at least than the first season, especially the first couple of episodes, as we're jumped into this loop. And Nadia is trying to figure out how to work things out. It didn't quite land for me in the way that I was really into the first season. It felt kind of like there was a lot of Nadia kind of talking to herself in this very she's been described as sounding kind of like a borscht belt comedian and that's totally totally her vibe mixed with, you know, as you mentioned in the entertainment clay and all these other things. But they didn't quite land for me. I found it a little bit hard to get into. But by the fourth episode, when Allen is brought in a bit more and we see him jumping back in time and they have like there's also great conversation about time loops and how he's trying to convince her you really can't change. We've seen all of these movies. We've seen these time loop stories. We know how this ends. It's not going to work. I love those sort of self referential moments, but it wasn't quite as enjoyable for me. I appreciate it a lot. It actually went back and rewatched the first few episodes knowing where it was going. It made more sense to me, but I also wonder how many people felt similar to me where the vibe felt a little bit different. And obviously, I don't want the exact same thing as the first season, but I think for me at least my head space was just like, it took me a little bit longer to acclimate and to sort of really dig into this idea of Nadia going on this journey with her mother. What do you think of the way they do the time jumps and the relationship? Because I think for me the strongest, the strongest parts were actually her connection not to her mother, per se, but to ruthie, because ruthie's character is, in many ways, like the heart and soul. And she is the mother that Nadia's mother, real mother, could not be, and so I loved this sort of trajectory of ruthie. It starts off with the going to the hospital because she's in an accident. The sense that ruthie's time is limited, but Nadia is also trying to at the same time she's trying to go back and change time. She's also ignoring what is going on with ruthie. What did you think of Annie Murphy as the.

"The Russians fighting Putin in Ukraine by Amy Ferris rottman a war within a war has emerged in Ukraine, more than a month after the Russian army invaded on the order of president Vladimir Putin, more and more Russian nationals are fighting alongside Ukrainians. The combatants who appear to number in at least the hundreds describe Putin as the enemy, even as they take up arms against their countrymen. They range from captured Russian soldiers to political dissidents like the 30 year old Russian who asked to be called Yan, and IT worker who now spends his days scouting, identifying potential artillery targets and bringing medical supplies to Ukrainian soldiers on the front. No Russian should have crossed the border with a weapon in his hand and tells time from a district near the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv, where he has served in the country's territorial defense forces since the war started at the end of February. I'm here to oppose Russian aggression and also defend Ukraine. He produced a valid Russian passport, but requested the pseudonym out of fear for the safety of his family in Russia. He said he moved to Kyiv from Russia's Ural Mountains three years ago, fearful of imprisonment after his office was raided, a self described anarchist Yan had taken part in demonstrations against Putin's rule. Vitre is the Nam de guerre chosen by a 25 year old Russian political science student who said he also joined the Ukrainian territorial defense forces to continue his fight against the Russian government, having attended anti government protests in his native Moscow since his early teens. I love my motherland VTS says from Kyiv, where he is stationed. Hopefully this war will break the political regime. I would like to return home one day. He said his parents, who are in the Russian capital, know their son is in Ukraine, but think he is donating blood and helping the Ukrainian war effort and other ways. But if some Russians fighting beside Ukrainians were challenging Putin well before the invasion, the conduct of the war has brought in others deepening existing fissures in Russian society and likely further demoralizing the country's military. In the first weeks of the war the force was criticized for its battlefield performance, struggling to advance on the capital, and even to maintain supply lines. As it retreated from the suburbs of Kyiv, evident atrocities against the Ukrainian civilians were revealed on the ground it had held, and Russia's military now also faces allegations of war crimes. Ukraine's government, which has cast the war as a contest between the forces of darkness and light, is leveraging Russian disunity, on April 5th, three men wearing military fatigues and black balaclavas faced reporters in Kyiv, where they announced a new battalion called freedom for Russia, composed entirely of Russian citizens, including former POWs, addressing their fellow Russians, they said they were morally outraged by Moscow's lack of discipline and apparent disregard for human life. One of the unnamed men said the Russian government had tricked them into going to a sovereign country to carry out what he described as genocide. After he was taken prisoner and later released by Ukrainian forces, he switched sides to fight for Ukraine. We were told propaganda, but there are no fascists here, no Nazis, but a civilian population, he said, I want to fight this lawless Putin regime, so people can speak and breathe freely. Sounding indignant, he said he witnessed firsthand the atrocities committed by the Russian army in buchach, and kharkiv. It was images and reporting emerging from bucha, a commuter town near Kyiv, showing mass graves and streets strewn with dead civilians that prompted president Joe Biden to call for a war crimes charge to be brought against Putin. A second speaker described himself as a sergeant in the Russian special forces, condemning the widespread looting of Ukrainian civilians homes by marauding soldiers, he urged other Russian forces to lay down your arms and fight for your future. As the masked men spoke, a sign on the table offered instructions for donating to the battalion using cryptocurrency, the unit also has a telegram channel which urges muscovites to attend anti war protests and includes instructions for Russians wishing to join their legion. Sign up at a Ukrainian embassy in a nearby European country on their camouflage sleeves, the men wore the white blue white flag that has become symbolic of Russia's anti war movement. Russian defectors are also welcome in Kyiv on April 2nd Ukrainian parliament passed a new law saying any Russian soldier who surrenders with a warship or jet will be awarded $1 million, a captured tank will earn them $100,000, and there is a $10,000 award for smaller military equipment. The first vice speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Alexander kornienko, said the rewards would motivate the demoralized occupying army, the law comes after a previous offer by Kyiv of $10,000 to any Russian soldier who surrenders. In late March, Ukrainian authorities said hundreds of Russian soldiers had deserted their army. Inside Russia, the extent of support for the war is difficult to determine, Russians face heavy consequences for protesting or vocally opposing Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Though recent public opinion polls show over 80% of Russians view Putin favorably, many may be fearful of expressing their true opinion when new censorship laws can send people to jail for up to 15 years for fake news about the war, including using the very word war to describe what is officially known as a special military operation. The Ukrainian government has openly welcomed foreigners to their fight. Since the president volodymyr zelensky established an international legion to defend Ukraine at the start of the war, an estimated 20,000 people from 52 countries from the United States to Denmark have signed up. The freedom for Russia members declined to say how many men belong to their battalion, except to describe it as large and claim they had received over 300 applications to join in a single day. Yen, the IT professional said his platoon of around 40 men in Ukraine's territorial defense forces contained several other Russians, and he knows of more in other parts of the country. There is a reasonable number of us across Ukraine, he says, adding that while Russians in the Ukrainian armed forces are generally well tolerated, there are also a lot of jokes told at their expense. And why not, you know? Ukrainians are going through huge psychological trauma, so this is totally understandable. I am not offended..

"Ladies and gentlemen, please silence your cell phones. The program is about to begin. It's today explained. Maestro George de ludo, music director of the Peoria symphony orchestra in Peoria, Illinois, had a big April concert planned. It was billed as Russian wonders, as you might guess, it featured the works of Russian composers, and then an invasion happened. And now our concert is called now unity with Ukraine, but it's not an anti Russian program by any stretch of the imagination, and we are doing tchaikovsky's second symphony, which includes a lot of Ukrainian folk melodies because going back several generations into tchaikovsky's background, his great, great grandfather, and great grandfather, were Ukrainian. In fact, his last name was chaika and eventually it was rationalized to tchaikovsky, which was kind of a tradition of the day if you were working in imperial Russia. What was the response from the members of your orchestra from your musicians when you told them we're changing the program? They understood and they had, they were pleased, some of them had expressed concern. What sorts of things were you hearing? You know, there's a general concern about it because of what's going on around the world and other organizations, canceling certain Russian artists or guest artists. So we were getting just concerns about doing a concert, if you will, that was all Russian programming and was that sending any kind of message. So we decided to adjust it a bit, and also address tchaikovsky's background, which everybody thinks he's a Russian composer, and he certainly was part of imperial Russia, but his background was Ukrainian, and that was kind of covered up, if you will, during the communist era. And I had to point out to people once we decided to keep tchaikovsky on the program, but go to the second symphony, which was nicknamed the little Russian. Would you.

"So you can see there was a risk aversion in terms of incurring costs, as well as that clearly defined mission and scope for these interventions. What's so shocking what's so surprising about what we've seen in terms of the Russian invasion of Ukraine is that all this caution all this restraint seems to have gone to the wind. And in pursuing something that's much more difficult to accomplish, like a large scale regime change operation in ziya, yeah, that's what would be the implication of the phrases, demilitarization, densification that Putin and his cronies who seem to be repeating all the time. And also, it is appealing to a much smaller base of Russians than these other policies were. For example, if we look at public opinion surveys in Russia, there are majority 62%, for example, right before the war in the last survey, said that Russians and Ukrainians are one people. That brother narrative that fraternal narrative has got relevance. Only 36% of Russians actually supported the integration of Ukraine to Russia by force. Amongst people from the age of 1824, for example, only 19% of Russians supported the recognition of vignettes and the laws independent states and believed that if they asked Russia to intervene with force, they should protect them. So they're appealing to a much smaller base, a core base of loyalists, a core base of conservatives and debt. And people, and then that's what he's trying to design his policy around. Basically trying to define his legacy to his core supporters rather than trying to pursue a policy that's one in Russia's national interest geopolitically. And two is something that would kind of really redefine the identity in a way in more broadly accepted. And he's using force and using repression to kind of match that. That's what's interesting about this invasion. And why I didn't predict it. I predicted that you'd probably do a limited incursion and done basque and then dangle the prospect of something much bigger in the hopes of getting concessions from the west so we could declare victory and leave..

"About the talk of war about what their ideas were about what they would do if the invasion actually happened. And even though we know enough about Putin and we knew enough about Putin, before his February 21st speech, and before the invasion began on the 24th, we knew enough to be able to predict precisely the worst case scenario according to which this war has been unfolding so far. It is impossible to believe. Some things are just too awful to contemplate. When you are sitting in a nice cafe in this incredibly vibrant city of Kyiv, which is which has had a rich cultural life that had that had a kind of so many places that had a kind of spirit of celebration, including a sort of ongoing celebration of Ukrainian independence. In the 8 years that have followed the revolution of dignity, there's been a heightened awareness of Ukraine having figured out a way to. Create a kind of democracy and in a really cohesive society in the rebel of the Soviet Union, unlike so many of its former fellow members of the Soviet Union, and so to sit there and imagine that the community subjected to an invasion to sit there and imagine that bombs may fall on your beautiful city is too much. And a lot of the people that I talked to were quite aware of that of the double thing that they were engaging in. On the one hand, they had stocked up on necessary supplies and on the other hand they were saying this is impossible. I don't believe it. You were at TV rain, Russia's last independent TV channel. On the night it was shut down. A couple of nights before that, you were interviewed on that channel. And then you heard that it was being shut down so you went right over there. What was said on the air that appeared to be like the last straw for the Russian government. T terrain started running a round the clock live broadcast covering the war in Ukraine and calling it a war. From the moment the invasion began. And the thing is that you would think that that's what a normal television station would do, right? Part of what the Russians, the Russian state television does to disguise the fact that the country is waging war, is not only not calling it a war, but also not changing its broadcast schedule or tone in any way. So formally, I think it was TV rain using the word war using the word aggression, using the word invasion when they were describing what was going on there. But considering that the Russian government has blocked every single source of independent information in the last week. Those things were just pretexts..

"History has some familiarity with russian culture based on the literature that you've read and so forth but could read a book like this with with profit and with enjoyment above all so. I think those were the principal motivations for me to try to do this. I really had a great time doing it. And so i would encourage people to write these kinds of books at least at a certain state if they have something to say that can have this kind of broader residents with readerships. That's a really nice summary. I wanted to press you about one thing you've obviously thought about a lot beforehand Your bio on the unlv website reveals that You given to conference presentations in verse and one. According to the meter of eugenol nagin pushkin. They'll get back to where we began. So you've been thinking about style long before he began this book. And i'm curious your thoughts on and i think you touched on something else in the course of this you you thought about style appropriate to the the way this book was constructed. Which is i was only person that worried about such things you had to have. A certain brisk style to go from railway to ministry of state properties to unique church to deduct deduct two camels and you achieve Because there's there is it's You're moving through a kaleidoscope rather than through a narrative or through down stream and that works with the nicely and i. I suspect you've been thinking about. How do things like this for a lot longer than lot before you. You wrote that book proposal when you were chair. Yeah i mean i. I don't know when i really started to think about it. I mean i guess i. I realized that there was a a potential lightness. And i don't want to detract from the seriousness of the topic. I think the book really does reveal something very important significant about russia. That people may be haven't really seen seen before certainly haven't seen it in this way..

"Technological difference between between what the russian army was working with and what the germans were working with Like just down to. I feel so bad for the russian soldiers at the point where the gas comes down. And they've basically got like these. Cotton mosques and goggles had much more like handkerchiefs and sunglasses just like in a pouch. And you just kind of have to open up and just kind of put on an and obviously because the german Using gas and gas as a tendency to blow around places they're wearing gas mosques to But it's very much like this is this is clearly we've prepared for this eventuality rather than like the russian army looked like okay. So they know gases gases suddenly become a thing that they have to deal with and this is kind of what they can do in a pinch rather than something like that. They knew they had to prepare for actually to be honest. Now that i think about it. I think just based on the use of gas means that it's probably later on in the wall like fifteen or sixteen because i don't think they were using gas from the off so that might be the answer to that but in some ways may that doesn't matter in in some sense like this isn't meant to be like a literal depiction of amick sacked. Moment will will want Is moment to be like just general like if occasion of that period's that's how it found. That will not many named characters.

Just kiss will will walk is just generally notes a at least to my mind not a subject that comes up very often in russian like popular culture and film and stuff like that just because it was so awful and led to the revolution.

At least. that's the impression i go. It feels that way apart from that one guy the like beats him. Oh yeah that's that's a good point. So how does that come about. So he's blind. Benaroya death at this point and oh this ties into the bit low about the russian revolution. Which i'm gonna guess this a satellite six months before. That's the feeling i got from by dinah enough about the history so they fear all the soldiers again feed 'em desma q. And there's not that much tweets go round but the officers have already been fads and say the so just kind of get alexi. Fads like he's blinds. Give them some fears. He can jump the queue so he just figured on then they just kind of pushed him towards the table to sit down but the tons on the offices table but he does know this because he's blind. He's down the table on most of these are kind of tolerant s. I can see. He's blind and he's not trying to like type of whatever the military terminus insubordination. Yes and then the next to him is like this.

The might be listening so this attendant. Whatever insists on beating him for spilling his favorite memphis sitting on the table like caning his hand. Kansas hands goodness knows how many times it's quite uncomfortable to watch. Yeah as always only for like longer than you think it will. Yeah it's it's really really horrible. So my theory about the settings actually comedy opposite I think that it's right at the beginning of will one just because of the polish setting because at that point poland was part of the russian empire so essentially it's like it's it's quote unquote russian territory. Because they're the imperial force. The germans like moving into it whereas i think later on in the world the russian army being pushed back because it was just not a good war for them so i don't know because i think the eastern from unlike the western front and we'll we'll one kind of moved a lot more because it's there's just so much more space out yet to move but it was. It was still very kind of futile but it was just not quite as stagnant. So i thought of it as being like right at the beginning i could be wrong. Yeah i the only thing that.

"Great man in general and everything else he he's doing is great Well depends on what the point affirm in which in which town in country. You're you're in. That means which opinion you gonna get to which i can say that also It all true like everything Everything is true like both of this. Both of these angles can Can exist in the ask. Let me ask you a ton. Gentle question has georgia oils. Work actually being disseminated back into russia. Does it does it to. does it look like human. Well well. Well if you've never heard of so that says a lot of my favorite books. Oh you have. What was your question. You asked me rush. I like the concept of to through truth can exist at the same time and utility to. Yes yes yes yes exactly. That's what we are leaving constantly Perpetually everybody especially especially the the leaders of our country people who actually make laws And the police and the kgb and everybody everybody leaves with this concept apparently because to certain extent Everybody's on the wage. Everybody's they'd like there is no national idea on what's not But at the same time People understand that nothing is great. Now everything is far from great like there's so much to so many things develop m Obtain but at the same time. We can't say anything because you know you'll get the you'll go to jail. Probably all get live destroyed starting with getting fired and then see what happens so i suppose like when orel was rising that he was he had come off the back of civil war in spain which was very fascist versus. Well i think it was The nationalist at the time or socialists. Yes and he was a diverse anti-fascist to which made him socialist. But you know it they were. That was that was because he was the other thing rather than he was a devout socialist. And i think when he was looking at writing. That book was very much pointing towards the fascist. E style of even socialism was rising in europe mainly in germany but was also rising in russia at the time and the soviet union as it was back then and everyone talks well let's just communism communism kind of went. Its own way. Well it was at six assists in some aspects bush particularly in the former soviet union at that doesn't exist anymore but these guys cut their teeth and now they're another was what is it that it's like whatever that was that was communism turns out it wasn't communism because i still exists in russia. Communism doesn't is that something russian and everything is russian. no What marks the the other guy was what they wrote about it. it couldn't It wasn't it wasn't the chief in. Ussr obviously it was. Associated was socialistic system to socialism We never achieved communism as lennon wanted. So now wearing this controlled capitalism. I believe basically well basically our Is in crisis. All economists in the in around the world during crisis which is not cool but we have been in crisis for for quite a while. Although i must say the security thing..

"Eleven days. Before christmas edmond pope received an unexpected gift. Russian authorities announced that president vladimir putin had pardoned him and cleared him of all charges. Popat arrived in russia. Nine months earlier on business he'd been contacted by pennsylvania. State universities applied research laboratory to learn more about a new technology being developed in russia rocket propelled torpedoes given pope's background as an ex. Us naval intelligence officer. He knew russian officials would likely keep tabs on him. He expected as much so naturally when he purchased five technical reports from a russian professor at bowman state university in moscow named anatoly bobken. He took proper precautions. Both pope and babkin signed contracts acknowledging. The reports did not contain any classified information yet. On april third two thousand members of the russian federal security service arrested him and brought him to lefortovo prison for questioning. He stood accused of espionage. At first pope felt the arrest was a joke but his tune changed when authorities locked him in an eight by fifteen foot prison cell for days. Pope was interrogated around the clock. The russians believed he was a high level spy working for the cia to make him miserable. They kept his cell at a chilling forty five degrees fahrenheit. He experienced no physical abuse. But witness the corporeal torture of at least two fellow inmates and he was subjected to sleep deprivation and other forms of psychological warfare. Days turned two weeks which turned two months eventually. Pope was moved to a communal six bunks cell in the prison there. His cellmates chain smoked cigarettes eight. His limited provisions and on one occasion stole his medicine when it came time for a trial in december the proceedings were held behind closed doors pokes lawyer demanded an acquittal outlining to a judge. The reasons why pope had done nothing wrong and how the prosecution had failed to provide proper evidence but ultimately on december seventh the court convicted pope and sentenced him to twenty years in prison the maximum he could receive that time would be spent performing hard labor. Which is why. Pope was shocked to learn that the russian president had pardoned him almost immediately after the ruling he may have spent two hundred fifty three days in custody but he never served a day of his official sentence. Within hours of the announcement pope appeared before the press responding to a reporter's question about how it felt to be a free man again. He said i have mixed feelings. I'm glad but at the same time. I'm sad that i may have caused harm to the relations between our countries. Of course this diplomatic response was made before he and his wife sherry boarded a plane headed to an american hospital in germany. The media would have to get the full story later once. He confirmed that he wasn't about to die.
