So, as happened during the 2014 war, there are occasional bomb threats being made against Ukrainian shopping malls and schools.
Russian parliamentary Wasserman: "Ukrainian has Russian syntax, therefore it is a dialect of Russian. The fact, that (Ukrainians) have invented own vocabulary changes nothing. Criminals have its own slang too, this does not make them a nation". So typical pic.twitter.com/pzEZWCXhCC

CNN went after Joe Rogan for his use of Ivermectin in the same condescending way.
Ukrainians are self-treating for coronavirus infection with Ivermectin, which in Ukraine is used only for livestock. Olga Golubovskaya, the leading infectious disease specialist of the Ukrainian Ministry of Health, spoke about this, the Ukraine 24 TV channel reports.
“The worst thing is that we don’t have it [a type of drug for people], it is only in veterinary practice. For people, not all countries have it in tablet form,” she said.
According to Golubovskaya, it is recommended to treat coronavirus with this remedy in the United States. However, the Americans have in mind the form of the drug, designed for humans. Veterinary dosages of Ivermectin are intended for horses and other large animals, they are dangerous for human patients. “What do they do with us, having heard enough? They [Ukrainians] buy a veterinary drug and begin not only to drink, but also to inject intramuscularly, ”the infectious disease specialist noted.
Ivermectin is used against parasites. It is not an antiviral drug.
The European regulator EMA said that the latest data do not support the effectiveness of the drug for the prevention or treatment of COVID-19. . . . .
“To understand why Ukrainians don’t want to be under Russian rule, read this book by journalist and former political prisoner Stanislav Aseyev. He spent years in a secret prison Izolyatsia in Russian-occupied Donetsk. It’s a harrowing account of torture, rape and lawlessness there.”
A source close with Volodymyr Zelensky said the Ukrainian president doesn’t feel there is an ‘imminent threat’ to Kiev as Russia poises itself to invade.
The source also said: ‘Quite frankly these Americans are safer in Kiev than they are in Los Angeles … or any other crime-ridden city in the U.S.,’ in a shot at spiking U.S. crime rates. The administration pulled U.S. embassy personnel and their families from Ukraine over the weekend.
In the famous “deception was my job” interview of former KGB officer Yuri Bezmenov, he describes that the KGB spent most of it’s time and resources inserting messages into foreign presses.

This can cause the political instability which Russia is waiting for.
Former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has returned to Ukraine to fight treason charges he rejects as politically motivated.
“We are here not to defend Poroshenko. We are here to defend Ukraine,” he told a crowd of hundreds of supporters gathered at Kyiv’s airport after arriving on a flight from Warsaw on January 17.
“We have to unite to show that Ukraine is strong and is able to stand against [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s aggression,” said Poroshenko, who has been out of the country since December.
Meanwhile, Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigations (DBR) said it had tried to serve a subpoena to the 56-year-old former president, who it claimed refused to take the documents.
Later on January 17, a Kyiv court is expected to rule on whether to remand Poroshenko in custody pending investigation and trial.
Senate Democrats defeated a bill Thursday sponsored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would sanction businesses associated with Nord Stream 2.
The vote on Cruz’s measure sanctioning operators of the pipeline was 55-44, short of the 60 it needed to pass.
Democrats denounced the bill as a GOP political gesture that would have harmed relations with European allies.
By the end of 2021 and in January 2022, Gazprom’s supplies dropped sharply. In the first days of the new year, the company was delivering to the EU only 54 million cubic meters per day – half as much as on the same dates a year earlier.
Due to reduced supplies, storage facilities in Germany and Austria were depleted. At the beginning of 2022 there was less gas in them than at the end of the heating seasons of the last five years.
“There are significant elements of shortage in the European gas market due to Russia’s actions,” said the head of the International Energy Agency, Fatih Birol.
. . . .
Russian President Vladimir Putin during a large press conference on December 21 said that the reduction in Russian supplies is due to a lack of demand from European consumers. “What is there to supply if there are no purchase orders?” wondered Putin.
A week later, at a meeting on gas issues, he said that Russia would increase gas supplies as soon as the EU approves the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
