Posted my last Instagram post yesterday. I’m deleting my Instagram account on Monday. After a period of time where I was scared it might cost me some freelance work, I finally made the decision. I don’t agree with the system, the company behind it. I don’t want to contribute to it anymore. I don’t want to post my work on it anymore. I’m done. Grateful to all the people that followed my work on it, sometimes even bought something in my shop. But it's time to move on.

US: The age of spheres of influence is over.

RUSSIA: Okay, we will send troops to Cuba then.

US: You can't, because that is our sphere of influence.

RUSSIA: But Ukraine is our sphere of influence, so you get out of there.

US: The age of spheres of influence is over.


Despite American threats, Russia says it will continue military exercises near Ukrainian border

Washington has demanded that Moscow be transparent or cease troop movement in the vicinity of the frontier

~ Moscow will continue to ignore American demands that it stops military exercises near the country’s border with Ukraine because nobody has the right to dictate what Russia can do inside its own territory, the Kremlin has said.

Speaking to the press on Wednesday, presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov commented on the current talks between the US and NATO, in which the American side seeks to restrict troop movement near the Russian-Ukrainian frontier.

“We are still talking about our units and our military districts on the territory of our country. Military construction and military training have continued, are continuing and will continue – this is the normal practice of any armed forces,” he said, repeating a line he has used many times regarding Russia’s right to move its own troops wherever it sees fit.

On January 10, Russia and the US held talks in Geneva, with Russia represented by Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov. The two parties met to discuss Russian proposals for security guarantees in Europe, originally put forward by Moscow last year.

The suggestions include a prohibition on NATO expansion, restrictions on missile placement, and a halt to the stationing of NATO troops on the territory of former Warsaw Pact countries. Following the talks, US State Department spokesman Ned Price suggested that Washington would be open to reciprocal agreements on missiles and transparency of troop movements.

According to Peskov, Russia is firmly in favor of coming to an agreement with NATO. “The president said that there is not and cannot be room for any ultimatums,” he said.

“The situation has simply reached such a critical point in terms of pan-European security and in terms of the national interests of our country, which are an integral part of Europe and the European security architecture, that unfortunately we cannot delay further and must respond concretely to the concerns that have been voiced to us.”

[During the 1985 rehearsals for Rocky IV’s final fight scene, Stallone kept goading Lundgren to hit him harder. Lundgren – a third dan black belt in Kyokushin karate and former European champion in 1980-81 – did as he was asked and hit his co-star so hard in the chest that Stallone’s heart began to swell. He was flown back to America for a week in intensive care.]
