Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky has a lot on his plate, what with his country getting invaded and everything. Quite a lot is going on right now. The last portions of Luhansk province just fell to the Russians; very soon Russia will probably hold the entire Donbas region. Russian forces just captured Ukraine’s second-largest power plant. According to on-the-ground reports, hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers are being killed every day and hundreds more are being wounded. As the war continues, Russia is signaling that it plans to keep cities like Mariupol and Kherson forever.
Slowly but surely, Ukraine is being slowly hollowed out fighting a war that it can’t win. But armchair strategists safe in Washington D.C. insist that they keep fighting, because it furthers some bogus notion of “grand strategy” that they picked up from a college textbook or from a video game. They don’t care if Ukrainians die by the thousands, as long as they take a few Russians with them.
So, to say the least, President Zelensky has a lot to worry about right now. But apparently, he isn’t too busy to have a little fun as well. That’s why just the other day Zelensky and his wife did a photo shoot with Vogue. Yes, the fashion magazine.
Deanna Lorraine joins us to talk about that, as well as the World Health Organization’s new, desperate plea for gay men to please just stop having orgies to halt the spread of monkeypox. Well, it didn’t work for AIDS, so what are the odds it works now? Deanna is here now.
