    Ukraine Invasion - Please do not post videos showing attacks/similar

    Taxes and profit from oil and gas revenue make up like 40-50% of the Russian fiscal budget, if they turn off the tap the economy will experience mother of all shocks. It gives time for both parties to adapt to the new normal. Nothing happening right now is out of goodwill, it is all out of...

    I checked, it's 5,200 images and videos related to the war going from memes and troop movement to missile strikes, not 5,200 images and videos of russian causalities. It's a google drive link split into two folders one with all the material and the other with 530 images/videos of deceased...

    You mean that spook info stuff? They seem to be claiming 5,200 images and videos as opposed to 5,200 confirmed deaths, unless I am missing something.

    It's a good and easy to understand video. As he said Russia makes up a very small fraction of the world economy and technically the west can absolutely destroy the Russian economy (stop gas imports) but if the west does it (Germany specifically) then the west will experience quite the...

    FX market rates in medium and short term are a result of flows, in simple terms supply and demand. Longer term fundamentals should work (ie different in real rates, inflation, balance of payments) but they really don't. So FX rate can be floating, pegged or target a certain band. Rouble was...

    Money is not going to be an issue as long as oil and gas are being exported. https://tass.com/economy/1434127?utm_source=google.com&utm_medium=organic&utm_campaign=google.com&utm_referrer=google.com The main obstacle in rebuilding their military capabilities over the next couple of years will...

    Cloudpunk City of Ghosts 8/10. Interesting improvements, the game looks slightly better, faces are now discernible as opposed to 10 voxels in the original game. I feel like lighting has been improved and it does make the car pop out when flying. So visually the game is even better. The story...

    The smoking and laughing guy? That was back in 2021. Ukrainian soldier. It was a suicide, his name was Alexey Saenko.

    Watched a couple of videos by Zelensky's adviser and since the president is not a career politician I am guessing that he will be inclined to adopt views/position of his advisors. Well Arestovych back in 2019 in an interview predicated a full scale conflict between Ukraine and Russia, his...

    Cloudpunk 8.5/10. Rich atmosphere, I was completely immersed. Gameplay is very minimal driving and walking and driving mechanics are not that great but does not get in the way of appreciating the gorgeous visuals of the city. The stories whilst amusing are not exactly ground-breaking or...

    Yes, I saw but there's a chance that that one of the wheels might clip the mine and it goes boom. With coordination from somebody outside of the car the risk goes almost to zero but people make mistakes.

    Mhmm quick google shows that the weight of the car is enough...though my google-fu skill is not great. Such an insanely risky move to drive over that minefield, especially with a trailer.

    I am guessing here that the weight of a car is not enough to trigger an anti-tank mine?

    You'd need to understand oligarch's background. So the old guard, old oligarchs are the original gangsters from 1990's that ascended during Yeltsin's period of lawlessness. When Putin came to power he basically domesticated or killed or driven out old guard oligarchs who did not yield to him...

    There's an interview with President Zelensky and it is quite revealing in terms of negotiations. Basically the only thing that two conflicting parties agreed upon is neutral status of Ukraine (no NATO) but under specific security guarantees that are ratified by various countries. The main issue...

    The guy is 79 in a physically and mentally demanding job, especially right now, it happens. He is holding up quite well. Slip ups are understandable.

    Capital controls introduced. Rouble rate is no longer a function of free supply and demand dynamic. Demand was reduced due to capital controls, supply increased due to government decree to sell 80% of foreign currency proceeds. If you want to look at effects of sanctions then look at GDP...

    I'm sure you mean it in a sarcastic way but you really need to dig deeper to understand motives. As a brief history Zelensky was bankrolled by Kolomoisky - a Ukrainian oligarch that was heavily punished by Poroshenko, the previous chocolate magnate oligarch who was elected president in 2014...

    One can infer them from Russian demands in peace negotiations.

    A bit of an odd question. I live in the UK and keep my savings in £. I am not a corporation. I am not a bank. I am not a foreign currency reserve of a country. I am not a pension fund. I am not an investment fund. I am not a hedge fund. I am not a sovereign fund. As a citizen I do not need to...
