Has Russia been cancelled?

I've heard of this so-called cancel culture happening to individuals but never a whole country.

Self cancellation .. You don't want to play nice with the other kids, then you can bugger off!

I think the russians. Are banned to enter the next Olympics

@JohnOinger Kicked out of the World Cup, international hockey tournaments, world figure skating championships. All this hurts more than we might think.

This is cancel culture on steroids. I feel bad for every day Russians that oppose Putin but idk what other options are present

@deadgerbil I feel the same way. I have very mixed feelings about the sanctions but I don't have a better idea.

Putin asked for it. He didn't think this thing through.
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@graphite Completely agree. I have zero sympathy for him.
I’m cancelling Putin right in his ass. Hard.

Yes, and it's unfortunate it has to be this way. Putin was warned this would happen if the Russian military launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. He can only blame himself for his country's cancellation.
The cancel button is the large red one, I think.

Unfortunately, he has one of those as well.

@CorvusBlackthorne well lets hope we can go down a sensible path before stupidity sets in and missile start flying and we have destroyed this plant

@CorvusBlackthorne Who has the biggest button, rocket man or the other guy?
@Burnley123 Unfortunately, Russia never stopped developing new and improved nuclear weapons, whereas the United States did.

Putin cancelled himself.

{@burley123] only mad vlad to thank for any hardship to russia business and people

@smiler2012 Maybe I shouldn't make like of this. Though less than what the Ukrainians are going through, they are hitting a Grapes of Wrath level recession.

@smiler2012 I wasn't joking!

Putin sure not Russia but at this point I have no sympathy for either.
Super low attacking the maternity hospital.

Russia has been cancelling since Olympics. I feel bad for the Russians who just want to live.
Tastyfrzz · 61-69, M
Any politician that still loves Putin should be canceled too!!!!
Starcrossed · 41-45, F
It appears as much.
Starcrossed · 41-45, F
I don't care know knows it, I'll always love blinis. You can cancel my carbs.
I think it's fair to say Russia is working hard to cancel itself out of the internet. Many people outside Russia would love to communicate the events in Ukraine to ordinary Russians, and the Putinistas are working overtime to prevent that communication.

Don’t know about cancelled but Russia is definitely capitulating under all the sanctions. The stock market has been closed since the Ukraine invasion started. The Ruble is devalued be worth nothing. Wealthy Russians are having their funds locked.

Like a dozen states have banned the sale of russian vodka. thats after the stores and bars have purchased it and paid liquor tax on it
ozgirl512 · 26-30, F
@MarineBob maybe they can send the empties to Ukraine...i believe they have a unique recycling program..
Burnley123 · 41-45, M
@MarineBob They've been banned from almost all Olympic sports and boycotted by scores of western companies. If that is not being cancelled then what is?

Even that blonde-haired buffoon never got as cancelled as this for inciting his stupid insurrection.
@MarineBob The stores are pulling it on their own.

I still listen to Russian music, it's hard not to, I have a few favorites lol. It should be noted that Russia puts its music artists in jail pretty routinely though.
I'm kind of hoping that maybe Russia's example may make a difference, but it's probably foolish.
Alison · 18-21, F
I feel a bit sorry for ordinary russians, but yeah🤷‍♀️

In my life Ive kinda cancelled half the population *laughs*
Tastyfrzz · 61-69, M
If they don't stand up to him they are complicit.
graphite · 61-69, M
@Tastyfrzz Russia needs to be banned, canceled, whatever, but as far as people standing up to him, this is a country that has a long history of eliminating dissidents in the gulags or wherever. Stalin killed millions and millions of his own people, the bastard. He must be Putin's idol.
Casheyane · 26-30, F
@graphite If it happened before, why do they still let the same constitution control them like a dictator would? I am not familiar with the history but it's a point to be asked. If they know there's a chance for this, is it not possible to change the power their leaders have over the masses?
I hope it doesn't return in the fall like all other bad programming
Wiseacre · F
I hope so...many have left their country!
iamonfire696 · 41-45, F
I feel terrible for the Russians that are suffering because of him. All of those corporations are pulling out of the country. He needs to be cancelled.
JohnOinger · 41-45, M
@iamonfire696 the russian goverment dosent like the American Government
iamonfire696 · 41-45, F
@JohnOinger no they do not

@istillhaveanameitsrick There's been cancel culture in Russia since Soviet Union and if you're cancelled it means you either disappear or have "an accident". Killing journalists seems to be a national sport in Russia. Don't forget about three doctors who mysteriously fell out of the window when they complained at the start of the pandemic.
