Zoia Svetova, journalist, writer, ex-prison visitor decorated with the French Legion of Honor, delivers her testimony.

My name is Zoia Svetova. I'm 63 years old. I have four children, three journalists and a daughter, and five grandchildren. My sons born in the Soviet Union under Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin. From birth until the age of their 18th birthday, I thought I had to do everything so that they did not go for military service.

At the start of the First War in Chechnya, my eldest son was 12 years old, the youngest, 9, and the Benjamin, 7 years old. So my sons were too young to wage war in Chechnya. But me and my friends, mothers of large families, we knew very well that we would not let our sons do their military service.

Russia prepares to annex occupied Ukraine despite outcry

  Russia prepares to annex occupied Ukraine despite outcry KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia is poised to formally annex areas of Ukraine where it has military control after referendums there reportedly endorsed Moscow’s rule. But the ballots were widely discredited and earned the Kremlin no relief Wednesday from international pressure over its assault on its neighbor. Pro-Moscow administrations of all four occupied regions of southern and eastern Ukraine said Tuesday night that their residents voted to join Russia in five days of Kremlin-orchestrated balloting.

and it was not because I was not a patriot. On the contrary, I loved my country where I intended to live all my life. But it is because my country had always attacked other countries. And we could never support these wars. And again because I knew very well how the Russian army was in the years 1980-1990 and 2000.

"The most powerful force in the world is the strength of women"

being a journalist, I wrote a lot about hazing In the Russian army, on the assassinations of soldiers by their comrades in arms and on the suicides of young conscripts. I met mothers of soldiers who had saved their sons from the war in Chechnya.

I did not pay bribes so that my sons do not go to do their military service. They were exempt from the army one because of his health, the other of the thesis he made at university and the youngest because he had two minor children.

Putin to annex four areas of Ukraine on Friday after sham referendums

  Putin to annex four areas of Ukraine on Friday after sham referendums The move will dramatically escalate tensions and could allow him to say 'Russia' is directly under attack.President Vladimir Putin will hold a signing ceremony in Moscow to join Kherson, Donetsk, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia with Russia, his spokesman said, following ‘sham’ referenda.

My four children left Russia after February 24, 2022. My journalists' sons left very quickly. They were afraid that the Russian authorities will put them in prison because they worked in the independent media. In our family, there was already a long history of dissent. My grandfather was shot under Stalin. My parents, Soviet dissidents, had experienced searches, prison and exile in Siberia. I myself was searched in 2017 because of my work as a journalist and my activities as a visiting moscow prisons.

Today, ten days after the declaration of mobilization in Russia, I read the testimonies of the Russians who leave en masse from their country to save their lives. Now they save themselves not from prison, but from death and the obligation to kill the Ukrainians.

I admire the women who demonstrate against a general mobilization in different cities, especially in Chechnya and Daghestan.

From 2014, after the annexation of Crimea and the Russian invasion in the Donbass regions, we saw coffins with the bodies of Russian soldiers. I did not understand why their mothers were silent. Why they did not protest. Then I understood that they were given money, compensations for the deaths of their sons.

and they kept silent.

I heard about similar situations after February 24, 2022: President Putin promised large sums, compensation for women who lost a man on the front.

I don't judge anyone.

I know one thing: the most powerful force in the world is the strength of women, mothers, sisters.

I saw a lot of women who had saved their innocent men from prison, torture, long sentences.

I hope Russian women will wake up and protest.

I think women will defeat Leviathan.

Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine Is Thwarting Its International Internet Ambitions .
The Russian candidate to lead a major internet governance organization lost in a landslide.On a practical level, it might not really matter who won the election—as it stands, the secretary-general doesn’t have the power to remake the internet. But as several commentators pointed out in the lead-up to the vote, the vote was still incredibly important, as the 193 member states of the ITU had to decide whether they align with Russia’s vision for the future of the internet or with the United States’.
