The Week: 18th – 24th August

Kyiv Ukraine

This weekend marks Ukrainian Independence Day, and Russia has spent the lead-up invading, abducting and slaughtering. Amongst the images to come out this week were some from a fashion show in Moscow that featured a child model dressed as Ukraine, waving a gun around and then pretending to shoot herself in the head. Lovely.

And then we have bastards like this one:

Russia’s evil propaganda cancer is turning the people into nasty creatures.

I would be hugely surprised if some major killing (more than usual – which is already shockingly bad) didn’t happen before the weekend is over. Russia won’t like Ukrainians devoting a day to celebrating their independence.

I’ve read some great books this week, including the first two books in one of Pamela Clare’s historical series. I’d have read the third book, too, but for some reason it isn’t available on Kindle, so I have to wait for the paperback to arrive. I prefer paperbacks, but this one has the most embarrassing cover!
