    Western or Northern Europe. Or in Australia/Canada which are actually by definition one of the most multicultural and stable countries out there.
    Is that why they attack civilians Russian and Belarus? And in Russia they do not attack a single foreigner.

      And why would I want to go to Russia? I have Russian friends that are trying to escape from there lol. You have a very odd definition of security, maybe you should try living in Western or Northern Europe. Or in Australia/Canada which are actually by definition one of the most multicultural and stable countries out there.

      You clearly haven't traveled outside of the USSR block otherwise you wouldn't be saying what you are.
      Besides he can name the war what ever he wants in the western countries in public. If he got harmed by passers-by the police will protect him. Thats freedom of speech. But he does not have the right for sympathy he shouldn't mess that up.

        And this has been their voting on their resolution on the matters of Ukraine and Russia:


        These are just objective facts. I do not participate in any discussion.
        Pretty graphics..., utterly meaningless, to repeat myself for anyone who didn't read:
        Yup, 73%, amongst them, say 100%, 75% that didn't "sanction Russia". My country also voted for that resolution, it means literally nothing, if you know how diplomacy works, you know for sure that those things are agreed in advance, they are meaningless. Those who are trully against Russia, they declared sanctions, and that's far less than 1/4 of the world.

          In this case, you need to provide evidence, and not engage in dirty accusations. I offer you to come to Russia, and I promise you complete security in our country. You can see for yourself that in our country all ethnic groups live in peace and harmony.
          I have been in Russia multiple times and I totally like the Russians but its not entirely true what you say*. Yes nobody will beat you up ...but thats not the point. Its about the state and politics. Political topics - especially concerning Putin- are usually topics everyone is avoiding. Do this in France or Italy or US even germany and you will have a multicoloured discussion with a lot of different opinions. Do this in russia...nobody starts to engage.

          *Thats why I urge everyone to distinguish between People of Russia and Politicians of Russia. The average russian is a kind person don't blame them.

            You are now blatantly lying. Read what I have written many times.

            So, why don't you talk about the murdered journalists in Ukraine. Not so long ago, several channels in the Ukraine were closed. And the law prohibited any criticism of the authorities. Once again, I say, you can open any Western media with us. But you will not open any of our media at home! If you don't believe me, I can take screenshots for you. I have more friends in Ukraine. And we look at it all with regret. The Russian Army does not purposefully kill civilians. She kills people who for 10 years called to kill Russians, robbed Ukraine and killed their own inhabitants. This is a big tragedy for all our peoples. We still remember the terrorists in Chechnya who took civilians hostage and blew up our cities. In Ukraine, the same situation.

            In telegram you can find quite a few videos where the Ukraine laugh at the dead and laugh at the Russians. But you won't find videos where Russians laugh at them.

            Nobody tells you, but politicians and TV presenters in Ukraine have been openly calling for more than 10 years to kill Russians, and infringe on their rights in every possible way. But you will never hear this in Russia or Belarus. There, criminal responsibility for inciting interethnic hatred and is equated to terrorism. In the Russian Federation, they always speak well of the Ukrainians and all world peoples. RF is a multinational country with more than 190 ethnic groups. This is the country that has suffered the most from terrorism in the country itself, and especially in Chechnya and Dagestan. Therefore, with the advent of Putin, criminal responsibility was introduced for inciting ethnic hatred. All conflicts within the country were stopped. For more than 20 years, peace and tranquility have been living in our territory. Sochi Olympics and the World Football Championship showed that in the Russian Federation people treat everyone well, regardless of their religion or country. While other countries are trying to exterminate rare ethnic groups, our country is trying to preserve and unite them. You will never hear in the Russian Federation to humiliate Europeans or Americans, but you will hear how they call for humiliating Russians in EU and USA. Unfortunately, everyone has confused politics and peoples, and more and more calls are being made to expel Russian students and to ban disabled people from performing at the Paralympics. Crazy politicians apparently believe that disabled people are fighting in Ukraine and threaten their safety. It's absurd and the world has gone mad. How everyone quickly forgot that the President of Ukraine - Volodymyr Zelensky at the Security Council of Europe threatened the whole world with nuclear weapons. From this Europe would suffer the most. Ukraine has the technology and resources to create a dirty bomb that is more terrifying than a conventional nuclear bomb and makes territories uninhabitable. Ukraine has been blackmailing the Russian Federation for more than 30 years on every occasion, they have no gas and oil, their economy is in decline and they are bankrupt, but she could start blackmailing Europe in the same way, which she has already begun to do at the Security Council of Europe. The politicians of Ukraine pumped the people of Ukraine for years into conflict with Russia, and at the same time they stole all European money and weapons and sold weapons to the whole world. They called themselves the most powerful army in the world, and everyone was told that they were fighting the Russian Federation, but they were killing their own citizens. But everyone was tired of this, and Belarus and Kazakhstan supported Russia. Ukraine could not raise its army, but stole all these years, and was not ready for the Russian invasion. This is a problem for all our peoples. Also, no one will tell you about the thousands of scammers from Ukraine who deceived our grandmothers, mothers, cancer patients and mothers of children. These people have no honor or conscience. This is very sad. But Europe has already faced these people with an influx of migrants who behave arrogantly and aggressively.

            It's bad that they try to mix science and politics. Are uneducated idiots who believe that openblas are used to create weapons. Apparently these people never went to university. This is a linear algebra library that uses a lot of scientific calculations. The mathematical school in Russia is one of the strongest. And most importantly, openblas is used by the lib2geom and opencv libraries. Which are used in graphic editors and computer vision. In this case, these mentally ill people should be banned from kitchen knives, because they can kill a person. Therefore, openblas maintainers should apologize to the people of Russia and resign. There is no place for politics and mentally ill maintainers in open source. All goodness and peace!

              I would suggest the same for any politicans in any country. I still cannot understand why people call wealthy Russians Oligarchs, but do not do the same to US's. But please try not to assure me that they are not involved in politics - big money always involved no matter where.

              • Being open source all this achieves is inconvenience Russian developers by causing them extra work trough forcing them to fork OpenBLAS.

                So while I can understand the sentiment behind it, unlike kicking Russian foreign-facing propaganda outlets like RT and Sputnik off western platforms this won't achieve anything tangible. All it does is create precedent that could be used to justify another only similar event like it and then cause an event-justification-event-chain where we get further and further from the original event to eventually end up with full blown cancel culture of whole projects and technologies.

                That could easily be something major to do with GLIBC or GCC over the myriad of eyebrow raising statements Richard Stallman has made since the late 1970s. That would end up hurting open source in a massive way that I don't think any sane person would consider worth it over sending a statement by inconveniencing some Russian developers.

                  Well, I don't care for sports, I'm just talking in principle. Also, youa re right that video is new, but I can't edit my post, regardless of that, it's a talk show where host is known to say such things, in context, it is not a threat, but either way, it was not Russian officials who said that.
                  Not every country in the world has Russian superyachts, Russian money, significant trade or flights to/from Russia. Eventhough it's mostly the "West", the rouble and the Russian stockmarket are not exactly doing great right now. And it is only going to get worse over time. So I don't think it matters whether it is 1/4th of the world or not, the sanctions seem to have their intended effect already.

                  Thanks for correcting the record about the video I posted. My point is that this is the kind of stuff shown prominently on Russian tv, especially in recent weeks. You will not see anything similar anywhere in the USA or Europe. Over here we don't boast about nuclear weapons, test them very publicly or make threats with nuclear weapons. The majority of Europeans are very much against nuclear weapons (so we don't have any ICBMs or other nuclear missiles). Sadly US+Russia still have more nuclear warheads than cities in the world. Not something to be proud of or boast about really. Anyway, hopefully that explains why we think the Russians are crazy with their nuclear posturing without any provocation.

                    You and I both know it wouldn't go the same way.

                      Using words such as "all", "whole", "never", "more and more", "thousands" in a post substantially increases the probability of the post being factually invalid, irrespective of on which political side the post stands. Instead: do research and try to replace such words with actual numbers/percentages reflecting or approximating the reality.
