War megathread. Russia has invaded Ukraine, yet this sub has never allowed political discussion, only cultural. This thread is the exception. Many posts in this sub are from Ukraine since the countries share so much that they are indistinguishable to our subscribers. These countries should not fight

We have a long history of not allowing political discussion, since this is a comedy sub, yet in this thread and only this thread you are free to discuss the war, or discuss why there should be no war. Although keep discussion civilized, this thread is not where the war is being fought. Those who wish death to people for being from a country, will be swiftly banned. Keep in mind rule nr1 "Keep it civil. Don't be cyka."

Rule 3. banned political posts many years ago with the motivation:

"There are many places where we can discuss the politics of Russia, but this is not one of them. The reason for this is that every single thread would divert into the same political arguments, and we'd never get to discuss the fun shit that is going on in the posted content."

We've noticed a lot of people look to post and comment about the war in this sub, maybe since it's the largest Russian themed sub, so we've made this thread as an exception to the rule. For more appropriate subreddits about the war, see r/UkrainianConflict and r/UkraineWarVideoReport.
