So the two big news of the day are:
- The liberated areas of the Ukraine have begun to vote on whether to join Russia
- A major prisoner exchange has taken place between the Kiev and Moscow
I don’t see the point of commenting right now about the vote. But I do have a few things to say about the prisoner exchange and the first one is this: to those who are having fits about Russia releasing members of the Azov death squad I will only say this: Benjamin Franklin once wrote that “it is better 100 guilty persons should escape than that one innocent person should suffer“.
