No Russian
Many people in Silicon Valley inquired over the years why I was not coming back to Russia often (I visited once in two decades) or why I'm not spending much time helping Russian startups. I usually answered these questions in generalities while keeping my grim thoughts and predictions to myself. The events of the past few days, unfortunately, show that the worst predictions I feared all these years did come true. The nightmare scenario is now unfolding as we speak, and Russia position in the world is now altered forever.
