"Belarus and Russia... are being defamed and excluded from international organizations at the whim of the West," Lukashenko said.

When you can't just name a couple of countries that are fighting against you, but have to generalize what's actually a large swarth of the world, you might have backed the wrong horse there, Ivan.

He definitely deserves everything bad that happens to him. I've been hoping that he overextends and gets deposed...but he's too big of a coward.

So it's kinda a loose confederation of former Soviet states and Putin is yelling at them because they're not helping to reconstitute the USSR.  That sounds about right.

It's probably from one of the Romanov palaces. Versailles doesn't have much on Alexander Palace, for example.

Nothing reaching head-eye level goes in the middle of a circular conference table - the point of the table is that everyone can look at each other. The practical reason for the donut table rather than a full circle table is at a certain point the table is just too goddamn hard to move, even in sections. Nobody can use the middle, so you just leave it out.

To be honest, I'm honestly surprised Pooty-Poot allowed a circular table. The idea is that everyone is equal, and that's clearly not the case in a Pooty Party.

Remember how Russia stepped in to save CSTO member Armenia when Azerbaijan (not a member) kicked their ass?

No one does. I'm sure all the members got the message that their mutual defense deal is pretty wishy washy.

I would imagine that even if they were to fill the room with flowers, the floral scent would still not overcome the stench of rotting corpses from Grozny, Aleppo, Almaty, Kyiv (Bucha, Irpin), Mariupol, Kharkhiv...

Start with the war crimes going back, Syria and Georgia as two more examples.

Pretty much every member of CSTO knows the truth: They are subject to Russia's whims and shouldn't count on anything except for Russia to keep selling arms no matter what anyone says. Now whether or not the weapons they buy are any good is another thing altogether.

Donny? He's a poser. All of his shiat is gold-leafed trash. If that table actually is a relic of Tzarist Russia...that's real, solid gold trim.

I farking know there's a char or string function called CSto() somewhere. I can feel it in my bones! It might be Java, but I wouldn't discount some obscure DB2 API. It returns an integer type, but only some useless error code. Stahlman probably wrote it, before he grew his beard. And if, some day, it breaks, Amazon will began publishing the credit card information of every person who ever bought chicken tikka masala at Whole Foods.

Not that I'm any kind of expert, but the design aesthetic of this table feels more recent than tsarist Russia.

I would tend to agree that the table itself looks a little too modern and too plain. However...that room absolutely screams Tzarist Russia.
