Is it really that simple?

Ukraine has been independent for over thirty years…. Including high profile events like the Orange Revolution… I don’t recall the Kyiv nomenclature but it’s possible I missed it

Don’t most Ukrainians speak Russian?

I doubt Ukrainians in the eastern part of the country prefer Kyiv…

But go Kyiv!

I was also unaware of the new spelling of Kiev.

this isn't really that new, this discussion came up during the QPQ with Trump and a lot of people were saying that should be Kyiv

It was only recently in 2019 that both NPR and BBC made the official decision to switch to the Ukrainian spelling and pronunciation.

good overview of the issue

The other spelling has been out there for years, it just didn't have the Gallagher Brothers publicist working on it's behalf...

it's friday what do you expect...

also realizing there is a ton of misinformation out there, one can hope this transcript of this interaction is accurate...

I hope they fight like their lives and those of their children depend on it cause they do


The more fight they show the more pressure on the rest of the world to do something…exactly what can be done seems unclear to me

let's be clear: those men that are being conscripted, along with the existing ukrainian army, are not going to win.  they are, for the most part, going to die.  russian soldiers don't care if they are being shot at by 60 year old man with a hunting rifle that is even older than he is, or some volunteer babushka with malfunctioning kalashnikovs- they're all toast.  and they know it.  as a certain cheerleader would say, "sad."

Gen. Patton said "The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his."  congrats, mr putin.

True but either you fight or you don’t. Either you stand up or you don’t. If the Ukrainians don’t fight nobody is going to fight with them.

I been reading about the history of the Ukraine. It’s interesting. It really has been a part of Russia for most of the past 1000 years.
