    I love the RUSSIAN TEA ROOM. Celebrated my birthday there once. They don’t have anything to do with this Putin nonsense. Why don’t New Yorkers boycott French wine. France Armament companies , with little or no opposition from MACRON and his Administration ,sold sophisticated missile components to Russia in the 2015- 2020 period. Are any of those French components in the ruble of a destroyed Ukrainian city today ?

    Sadly a lot of russians are supporting this war, it’s not “only putins war”. But of course it’s unjust to start banning this nation all around the world because of this, but they have to put pressure on their people to awaken somehow.

    I’m Irish, I was racially profiled for “Looking Russian”. Tell me, how does a Russian look?

    Yeah, don’t hate the people who are not forcing their military to invade Ukraine, hate the people who are forcing their military to invade Ukraine.

    It’s an easy fix. Put a Ukrainian flag in the window and openly support Ukraine.

    Really, should the black community care? I heard The Russian community don’t think much about Black Ppl either. Should I care about the Europeans at all? Base on how they treated Blacks, then blame blacks for not doing better in this country? Uhmm… ?

    Here in México have mixed feelings about that. We were the first country in America to recognize URSS, but break relations in cold war.
    Now we appreciate art, music, etc from Russia, but since 1968 civil unrest supported by russians and cubans (Harvey Oswald, and Fidel Castro been in Mexico), we have no confidence at all in them.

    Sorry but it’s better to not have confidence in some people to regret it later.

    We saw with some worries the german army resurrection.

    My grandad used to say “The question isn’t if germany is going to war, but when”…

    Americans don’t abandon your Russian business they pay taxes locally and remember stop giving an opportunity to be hated. Not all Russians believe in the war and I don’t think all Russians are for this war.

    Borshch is not a russian dish. It is Ukrainian. But white Americans know better than me about cultural appropriation. And btw, the russian war is rooted in russian culture.

    Boycotts of McDonalds, Starbucks and Coca Cola not to sell in Russia for example, will only make Russian population healthier.

    Putin invaded Ukraine because he says they have been discriminating against Russians…. What do you think he’ll do to America who is presumably doing the samething
