1. Interesting. I heard that he was in the process of defecting.

Ah well, let’s see where all this goes.

3. Meanwhile, things in Russia are getting downright Kafkaesque

as their "partial" mobilization breaks all their own laws surrounding military callups. They're seemingly calling men at random, exempted men in college, in essential work, men who thought they'd aged out, men with families and businesses to run. No one knows who's going to get one of those callup letters and social media is full of videos of tearful family goodbyes, women and kids knowing they might never see their husband and father again.

It was announced today that Russia will never prevent men from traveling, so everybody knows what that means and a lot are trying to get out while they can.

Support for this war was always a mile wide and an inch deep, people willing to play the semantics game and stay out of trouble until trouble decided to find them. It has.

As for Lavrov defecting, I rather doubt it, he was one of Putin's original war cheerleaders and I don't know who'd take him.

7. He might be useful to the CIA and M16.

8. I doubut he'd be useful beyond acting as a tour guide to offices in the Kremlin

and who occupied them. He might have a clue as to the number of Russian casualties.

Other than describing the population of the palace, which tends to be fluid if past palaces are any indication, he'd be useless.

If he'd feathered his own nest sufficiently and had the brains to stash it outside Russia, he'd already be in a fancy hotel in Abu Dhabi.

9. Depends on what he knows and how afraid of Putin he is.

10. Considering the people who have been poisoned outside Russia

by GRU goons, I imagine he's utterly terrified.

11. Yes quite a few well placed Russians should be very afraid.

12. Meanwhile, the young Russians are incredibly brave

as the ones who have been arrested for demonstrating are choosing 10 years in prison rather than going into the military to fight Putin's vicious vanity war.

Saw an on the street video of the St Petersburg protests, no problem until the demonstrators hit the square in front of the big cathedral, then a zillion cop cars swarmed in at them.

13. Yes they are. They know they face imprisonment, death, conscription.

This is what real bravery looks like.

Not the fake GOP/MAGA kind.

6. You're welcome.

Unfortunately, knowing that Lavrov and Putin are so obstinate doesn't provide any comfort that the war will be over soon.
