    Russian propaganda “shoots to kill” and AP is handing the bullets
    “Training kids to kill at Ukrainian nationalist camp” – the name of yet another article by Yuras Karmanau who lives in Minsk but often writes about Ukraine. “When these boys and girls shoot, they will shoot to kill”, – he writes at the beginning, deciding to take the hysteria of the heading to another level.

    Who and why invites us to defend the right to create "crucified boys" in Ukraine?
    At the very beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine, one of the Russian TV channels showed a story in which they told that the Ukrainian military in the liberated Slovyansk, a city in the Donbas, had crucified a little boy.

    Russia is cracking down on minority languages
    Russia has spent the last several years aggressively advocating for the rights of Russian minorities abroad, and in particular for the “protection” of the Russian language.

    Unlike Facebook
    Once thriving, the first massive social network in the world was Myspace. But now it is considered to be a thing of the past. Now it seems like it happened overnight, almost. And the question “Why” is really irrelevant. At one point it just wasn’t – wasn’t providing a good service anymore, wasn’t innovating. “MySpace is very 2004,” some users say, and they are right, the user-interface might not be, but the user-experience surely is. And eventually, this is the ...
