    BREAKING Russian airlines ordered to stop selling tickets to Russian men aged 18 to 65
    Sounds like quite a few got out before the order was put in place.

    #Update: Just in - #Russia[n civilians on social media are sharing widely that they are leaving the country by plane, bus, car, and other means of transport, even by foot by the borders to the #EU, after #Putin announced he will send 300.000 new troops to #Ukraine.
    edit: the border video was not from today but it does sound like the border is a mess. I took down that tweet. Also Europe is moving fast to block Russian Men from entering their countries. Baltics way ahead on that one.

    • Hmmmm. Shouldn’t Europe be encouraging Russian men to flee?
      If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

      • I would think that hundreds of thousands of ****ed off conscripts stuck in Russia would potentially be a big problem for Putin. We've already heard about what many of the companies of convicts have supposedly done. Granted, they had nothing to lose and being POWs of Ukraine is preferable to Russian prison.

          Uh no. Can you imagine what that many Russian immigrants entering at once would do? It would be chaos. Why should Europe reward them for turning a blind eye until it was too late?

          You force them to stay and make Putin deal with the fallout.

            Agreed...

            By blocking the Russians from coming in, they put the "Enemy of your enemy" at Pooty's doorstep.

              • Easy for you to say, they aren't coming here. They aren't fleeing because of oppression they are fleeing because they don't want to serve. They were perfectly ok with murdering Ukrainians when it was just on TV and they could pretend it wasn't real. They made their bed...

                  You have no idea whether these aren't dissidents.

                    The dissidents aren't leaving they are the ones being arrested in the streets. These are the average Russians who are just like average Americans, totally blind until it effects them. They don't want to be conscripted so they are fleeing. If that speech doesn't happen they would be perfectly fine just watching State TV and pretending none of it was real. (like they have been since Day 1)

                    Even if you grant that some of them are dissidents these people could have left at any time, everyone leaving at once would cause massive chaos to Europe. It would be a logistical nightmare across multiple borders.

                      Exactly this. You force them to stay and make them Putin's problem. By remaining in Russia up to this point, they are assumed complicit.

                            • It's not an equivalency. It's a reminder of what happens when we use people as game pieces in geopolitical strategy. Do not do that. It's bad behavior.

                                This is like saying that we should welcome new Congress people from Wyoming because they MAY NOT be MAGA Republican.
