That's a little like driving a pink Prius with a "HILARY 2024" bumper sticker and "ENDFTBL" license plates through Texas.

"Before moving to Ukraine, Murekezi spent six years in the US air force. He left the military in 2017 and started investing in shares and cryptocurrencies...

And considering he served, probably should have seen the writing on the wall sooner

To be fair, driving a Challenger is pretty much never a good idea.

Suedi Murekezi, 35, was detained on 10 June by Russian proxy forces in the Ukrainian city of Kherson, where he had been living for more than three years.

"I would really like to leave and get back to the US, but I do not know how. I do not know what is safe," he said


If only the U.S. State Department had been issuing do not travel and leave immediately advisories for Ukraine and Russia since May of 2021.

As much as I want to say fafo for this guy. This is exactly the situation the state department exists for, no diplomatic cost to repatriate a us citizen. Charge him for his ticket and verify his id.

"Looking back on it, driving a sports car in the middle of a war zone with American licence plates was definitely a bit suspicious," he said.

Obviously he's a master spy.

My favorite part is that he took it to get the oil changed. Where were you driving it, dude? What were you thinking?

It's awful that he was tortured and endured the torture that is Russian prison, but I can understand why he's lower on the list than Britney Griner.

How do you spend that amount of time in the military, freely choose to move to a war zone, drive a car that's not only American, but sticks out HERE, and not have any semblance of awareness? The crypto ish was the cherry.

My advice to him: pull a Costanza and do the opposite of whatever you think is the correct move. My God.

His CO in the Air Force is shaking his or her head.

After RTFA, I won't hate on the guy. He knows he farked up, he's totally owning it. He said he should've listened when he was told to get out, etc.

Dumbass move, but at least he's not whining.
 
2022-12-06 8:28:10 PM  
He either really loves Ukraine, or really wanted to avoid going back to the US. Seeing as how he had the means to bug out of Kherson to western parts of the country, I'm willing to be hopeful here.

This guy stayed because he had money and military training and thought he could help the people of Ukraine who he had been living with for years. Griner knowingly carried a controlled substance into Russia. And she should have priority?

Salmon: A Challenger is a sports car?


Two door coupe which has 250 HP even in the base model. Yeah it's plenty sporty.

No it's not a sports car.

Like other people in the thread I lost some empathy when crypto was mentioned. It could be that he stayed because his mining farm running on the dirtiest and cheapest coal available can't simply be moved to the US.

I'm certain the arresting officer is enjoying the hell out of his car.

Let's face it, that's why he was grabbed. That and racism.
