International law experts, I know that Russia inherited "de facto" the USSR's seat on the UN Security Council. Was that ever ratified in a formal vote? Was it legal? Maybe time to give that seat to another Soviet successor state, Ukraine?

A 95-year-old Ukrainian woman who lived through Soviet-era famine and World War II said she’s “never seen anything as horrible” as the Russian invasion.

Zelensky stakes Ukraine’s own claim to Soviet victory day, with a characteristically powerful and well delivered speech. Reclaiming May 9 instead of viewing it as irrevocably contaminated. Quite bold

Bernie honeymooned in the Soviet Union during the Cold War and thinks people lining up in bread lines “is a good thing” about socialism. He literally wants the US to become the USSR. But Trump is the Russian agent. ???‍♂️

Bread lines...televised Cabinet flattery sessions...centrally-planned economic industrial policy: Under Republican leadership, the US is turning into Republicans’ scariest 30-year-old Soviet fever dreams.
