These developments are even more worrying as they coincide with a major escalation in Russian military involvement in Eastern Ukraine since mid-August, including the use of Russian forces.
The day before yesterday, I did a (very bad) handstand on the observation deck of Willis Tower (formerly Sears Tower). This has been one of my weird goals in life ever since I saw a wheezywaiter video in which he did the same, and now I’ve done it!
I condemn the entry of a Russian so-called humanitarian convoy into Ukrainian territory without the consent of the Ukrainian authorities and without any involvement of the International Committee of the Red Cross. This is a blatant breach of Russia’s international commitments, including those made recently in Berlin and Geneva, and a further violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty by Russia.
