Pro-Ukraine Demonstrations Today in Kharkiv, Odesa




That Red/White/Yellow Flag is the Odesa flag. When I visited a couple years ago I learned of a very small secessionist movement. I don’t think they’d make any noise about secession right now, though for fear of Russian “help.”

    In Estonian we have a word karuteene which means “bear’s favor” meaning unasked help that is detrimental to the receiver. (The backstory is that a man had a trained bear, one day the bear saw that some mosquitoes were harassing the master and smashed them, killing the master in the process.)

    How appropriate phrase. (Bear being the symbol for Russia.)
