Rant over, here's an old photo of a man riding his bicycle home in the Volga region, because most of Russia's 150million people are just going from work back to home, like everyone else.
The ability to bundle Russian state, Russian mafia, and Russian people, many working bravely and tirelessly for a better country, into only "The Russians" .. is so dangerous and so dumb.
It's also been weird to see pundits who spend two years ironically quoting Michael Gove's "we've had enough of experts" .. rush to base all UK foreign policy on quick Guardian headlines about Putin.
Keeping open UK-Russia channels for money launderers and thieves, while prompting closure of diplomatic and cultural ones is ... well, exactly the sort of self-harm we now expect from this government.
