And this is a quote from Ivan Franko, a prominent poet and a public figure who lived in Lviv.

As for translation of the phrase, it can actually be understoon in different ways, so it can also be translated as "the truth we ought to serve, the lies we ought to burn" or "let's serve the truth and burn the lies"

Russian warship...

52

u/Purdius_Tacitus Apr 30 '22 Evil Cackle

Do it again!

This reminds me of an old Soviet-era joke:

Shortly after Stalin died, Ivan calls the Kremlin. A man answers the phone and Ivan says "Can I speak to Comrade Stalin?"

The man answers: "Haven't you heard, Comrade Stalin has died." and hangs up the phone.

Ivan calls the Kremlin again. The man answers and Ivan says "Can I speak to Comrade Stalin?"

The man answers: "I told you Comrade Stalin is dead" and hangs up.

Ivan calls the Kremlin again and the man answers. Ivan asks to speak to Comrade Stalin. The irritated man answers: "I've told you twice already that Comrade Stalin is dead. Why do you keep asking for him"

Ivan says, "Oh, I know he's dead. I just like hearing you say it."

(And like most Soviet jokes, they can be recycled to include Putin. I hope this one can be used for Putin soon too.)

u/substandardgaussian Apr 30 '22 Silver

The one true answer.

She probably has a dedicated nutritionist and a dedicated personal trainer.

Given that she was at high risk for breast cancer, good chance they still check her for cancerous growth regularly despite her having a mastectomy.

As an actor as well as prominent gooodwill ambassador, it's guaranteed she works out to maintain her litheness. She still projects a strong image, and the morale war is very important. I hope whatever she is doing there is constructive.

In NYC no one cares who you are. It’s one place that famous people can go about their day and people recognize them but no one looks twice.

It’s legendary that you can walk down 5th Avenue wearing a gorilla suit or any crazy costume, and no one will even glance at you. They won’t even remember having seen you.

Lol

I once had lunch in Manhattan and across the very informal restaurant Sam Waterston was having lunch with someone. The place was packed with people, and certainly people noticed him as I did, but no one bothered them or stared at them.

Theres also a difference in context. Most people if they were rich as fuck would just retire and live in luxury without bothering about the worries of the world. While I am absolutely not a celebrity-loving person, I think its important to look at what someone could be understandly doing, and what someone is actively doing.

Going out there and advocating for people in need while being able to have a comfortable and enjoyable life for more than your lifespan in anonymity is a trait that deserves to be admired. Not everybody will choose a bad, dangerous, stressful and busy situation over a good one to help others.

She put out a book of all her notes she took when performing humanitarian relief in Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Pakistan and Cambodia. it's called 'Notes from my travels'. I highly recommend it. Angelina is a wonderful person and I have so much respect for her. I also remember when her mother passed from ovarian cancer Angelina also found out she carried the BRCA1 gene mutation and she had a double mastectomy and her ovaries removed. She raised a ton of awareness about the BRCA1 gene testing and preventative health options. She has really done a LOT of good with her life.

u/corsairtact Apr 30 '22

I know but if Kyiv had fallen and the puppet government been installed, I would imagine places like Lviv would be in a war zone. What I was implying (perhaps too cleverly) is how wonderful it is that there are safe places in Ukraine considering what the general international consensus was on the 24th of February.

I mean he is basically living in one... in some bunker beneath the Kremlin. I'd love a film with Tomb Raider going all Black Widow and breaking into the bunker. Putin would scream like a scared little piggy.

In recent years she definitely got extremely thin and gaunt looking, no doubt from her health scares and divorce issues but she's looking so much healthier now.

Ukrainian government specifically told its citizens if they are not being actively bombed to keep living like nothing is happening. To keep working, spending money, etc. It’s done to keep economy going.

I work with a lot of Ukrainians (software dev contractors), and almost all of them are living life as normal.. Occasionally, I'll get a chat "air raid siren going off, can't join the meeting" [1/4 times they end up joining anyway] but for the most part, they're all working the same as before the invasion.

Though I definitely feel a bit weird when they're actively in a bomb shelter and joining meetings - all of the background noise of everything going on sounds hectic.

Well first of all, he hasn't even spotted her so we're unclear as to whether he would care or not. And second why would he care about some random woman coming into the shop? Unless her arrival was foretold by blaring trumpets there is no reason for anyone to think anything out of the ordinary was about to happen.

Apparently she's a special envoy to the UN high commissioner for refugees.

So, yeah. Kind of makes sense for her to visit Lviv.

She’s honestly so beautiful. What makes her even more beautiful is her activist and volunteer work.

And she always acts so humble, not a single sign of arrogance or being full of herself. That is a very attractive thing in people in general, but in a celebrity it's especially charming.

Exactly. People on this sub don’t realize that the war is not getting as much coverage in US news as before. Her presence brings media attention.

Ashton Kutcher pointed out that we can’t let it become background noise. (Yes, he’s another celebrity. His wife, Mila Kunis, is Ukrainian.) https://twitter.com/aplusk/status/1518976013014749184

SO, like the opposite of a fleeing oligarch she goes in as a UN ambassador focused on assisting refugees. Sweats and a backpack. She is there to get things done.
