#DecolonizeRussia: A Moral and Strategic Imperative
Russia’s barbaric war on #Ukraine—and before that on Syria, Libya, Georgia, and #Chechnya—has exposed the Russian Federation’s viciously imperial character to the entire world. Its aggression also is catalyzing a long-overdue conversation about Russia’s interior empire, given Moscow’s dominion over many indigenous non-Russian nations, and the brutal extent to which the #Kremlin
has taken to suppress their national self-expression and self-determination.
Serious and controversial discussions are now underway about reckoning with Russia’s fundamental imperialism and the need to “decolonize” Russia for it to become a viable stakeholder in European security and stability. As the successor to the Soviet Union, which cloaked its colonial agenda in anti-imperial and anti-capitalist nomenclature, Russia has yet to attract appropriate scrutiny for its consistent and oftentimes brutal imperial tendencies.
🇺🇦 One fact about Ukrainians: We call our language "nightingale language". Figuratively of course🐦

Z powodu wojny chcę zrezygnować z części rosyjskiego segmentu Fediverse, bo mam dość walki z raszistami. @zen słusznie powiedział, że myśleliśmy tylko o Rosjanach, a nie myśleliśmy o innych sąsiednich krajach. Dlatego chciałem, abyś mi powiedział, których Polaków mogę subskrybować, żebyśmy mogli porozmawiać, nauczyć się czegoś nowego itp.
Actually, it follows Congress of the Enslaved Peoples of #Russia held on 21–28 September 1917
Free Nations is a platform for bringing together municipal and regional leaders, members of the opposition movements of the Russian Federation, representatives of national movements, activists, the expert community, and everyone who is aware of the need for an immediate transformation of #Russia. We discuss ways for structural changes in society, develop a plan of specific actions, concentrate resources and coordinate efforts for maximum efficiency in achieving our goals.
#Forum participants develop approaches to the independent post-Putin nation states transitional administrations and governments creation, discuss minimizing risks of uncontrolled collapse in key sectors (including demilitarization with a complete rejection of the nuclear arsenal), form the new European collective security architecture and develop policies of peaceful, good-neighborly coexistence of the new independent republics of Russia and neighboring countries.
This good thread gives a better feeling of the horrendous scale of this russian war crime. A few hundred thousand of the deported are kids #ArmUkraineNow
