How the War Killed Russia’s Reputation

How the civil world community reacts to the war that Russia unleashed against the Ukrainians

On February 24, 2022, Russia switched from a war in the Donetsk/Luhansk regions and Crimea to a full-scale attack on our country and its unarmed population.

On February 24 last year, on the day of the start of a full-scale war, a Molotov cocktail was thrown into the "Russian house" in Paris. The Russian foreign minister commented hysterically on this event: "There is no need to pretend that such extremist actions are some kind of "justified anger" in connection with a special operation from Russia."

"Russian houses" are institutions that promote Russian values under the guise of a cultural institution.

On April 26, 2023, in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus, there was a fire in another "Russian house". Probably, the "Russian world" has partially turned into ashes thanks to the Molotov cocktail.

In addition to the first and last (today) expression of the will of ordinary people against Russian aggression, at least 16 such events have occurred. The brightest:

  • March 2022. The inscription "killers" in German appeared on the building of the "Russian house" in Berlin;
  • Demonstrative actions near Russian embassies abroad: in Poland, the embassy was fired upon with a slingshot, in Hague, they threw firecrackers, and in Tallinn — with eggs;
  • The truck intentionally crashed into the gates of the Russian embassy in Dublin.

Bucharest. The man rammed the embassy gates with his car and, screaming out against the war, set himself on fire.

We remind you that now Russia chairs the UN Security Council — the cynicism of the 21st century. The reins of government passed to Lavrov on April 1, April Fool's Day — the irony of the 21st century.
