A MOTHER, KABUL I am writing this letter to inform you about our situation in Afghanistan. We are still hiding in Afghanistan, in a bad situation, in the darkness, disappointed. But we will never give up, we will try to escape from this situation.
DAVID PATRIKARAKOS, LONDON Putin, despite his fastidiously calibrated democratic laminate, is a true totalitarian. He doesn’t just want control of your business or your politics. He comes for your senses: Russian troops aren’t in eastern Ukraine. They never invaded Crimea. What you saw you did not see.
