I’m responsible for the web presence of our department. We made a big transition two years ago, and that was somewhat fun. But now people just routinely want me to change stuff… current events, typos, staff lists… and I hate it.

What's the best way to stop russia?

The best way, if feasible, is to turn Russia against itself. Make it unstable, forcing change from within.

Otherwise, prepare NATO borders, and isolate Russia economically - wary of the risk that we might provoke a new axis of evil of Russia, China, Iran, etc

I am waiting for Spain to follow Putin's arguments and threatens Belgium and the Netherlands to make their provinces new and independent nations under Spanish protectorate.
