This thread is to discuss the ever more rabid Russophobia and social impacts as a result of the ongoing war.

1-3 Years prison time in Czechia for public support of Russia
Czech police are already investigating dozens of complaints from people who reported that someone had publicly approved and supported the Russian invasion of Ukraine. On Saturday, Attorney General Igor Stříž warned that he could face up to three years in prison for supporting Russian aggression, for example on demonstrations or social networks.

Police said at noon on Sunday that they were already investigating dozens of cases in which someone had approved the Russian invasion.

"We record dozens of comments in internet discussions approving the Russian invasion and the activities of the Russian army. We closely monitor the Internet environment and apologize for not responding to every sign in the posts. It is not always desirable and tactical," police said on Twitter.

They warned on Saturday that they would focus on cyberspace. The Attorney General Igor Striz pointed out that support for the Russian invasion of Ukraine could border on two crimes.
And up to 25 years for the same in Slovakia

At least 4 American states have banned or restricted the sale of Russian alcohol

Russian church in Calgary vandalized
The priest at All Saints Russian Orthodox Church in Calgary is pleading for peace following an act of vandalism over the weekend.
On February 26, the church's temple door was spray painted with splashes of red.
Father Dmitry Grygoryev said he's urging his parishioners to try and ignore the thoughts and actions aimed at inciting hate between people.

"(We are) not supposed to keep the hate and anger to other people in our hearts. This is most important: don't judge anyone and don't spread hate," Grygoryev said.

This is the result of media brainwashing. Russians are the new Germans. People really believe that "one day for no reason at all..."

I assume these attacks and acts of vandalism are by government agents, or thugs that are being steered by the Fed, though I have no proof.

A bar in DC called Russia House, which I have been to a few times in the past, was recently vandalized. Ironically, most of the clientele is non-Russian.
Days before reopening since being closed for almost two years due to the pandemic, a D.C. restaurant will remain closed after vandals targeted its building twice with anti-Russian messages.

Aaron McGovern, the co-owner of Russia House Restaurant and Lounge on Connecticut Avenue, said someone smashed the windows of the restaurant and tried to pry open the door last Thursday night. And it didn’t stop there.

Sometime during the following night, vandals struck again he said, leaving anti-Russian signs on the building with messages that included “Putin House” and “Murderers.”

I'm not advocating it but, if someone were to set up a pro-Ukraine merchandise site, with stuff like 'I :love: Ukraine' t-shirts, and blue/yellow pussy hats, they could make a killing. Obviously, the profits would need to go to pro-Russian causes.

Imagine being the most popular POTUS in history, with a message of healing and coming together only to start WW3 over his and others corruption.

Not even Tom Clancy would write that.
It's fascinating, isn't it, how "uniter" politicians seem to be the most warlike, while people with "divisive" messages like Jesus Christ saying that He didn't come to bring peace but a sword and Trump with his America First rhetoric have done the most for world peace?

Why, it's almost as if fences make good neighbors.

Harmony(Shalom) comes from Christ. Not from Satan. All Harmony among Mankind springs from Justice and Righteousness. And fosters true unity under one True Emperor.

I'm about to order dinner. What is pro forma now if I want Russian dressing...? Hurry, please.

Russian Dressing? - We're sorry sir but that was just banned as the evening service started and your pre-dinner reading of The Brothers Karamazov will no longer be permitted.

Could I offer as a dressing replacement the Roquefort and for reading we have Mark Twain's The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

What's the purpose behind all this, if not to go to war? There was not much public support for world war 3 against Russia, because frankly it's the dumbest idea ever. But yet now we're seeing that Putin is being equated to Hitler and he is mentally unstable but in control of dangerous nukes. In short, the propaganda against Russia is being placed on the level of Nazi Germany before WW2. Logically it makes sense to wonder what they are prepping the public for.
