Yale’s heroes teach us that true freedom is to be found in responsibility

Person of the Year 2022: Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Steven Tian and the ‘Yale Research Team’

NEW YORK (RichTVX.com) — This Rich TVX News Network bulletin is about outstanding heroes for freedom: people who set out to help others — men and women from Yale University. As the Kremlin has suffered reverses on the battlefield in the Ukraine, Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has ratcheted up the nuclear rhetoric, by saying that he would use “all available means” to defend Russian territory. Make no mistake, this is not some “flaw in the Russian national character” or some wayward gene in the Kremlin gene pool; this is the result of an evil, brutal, and genocidal ideology that is well-organized, well-financed, and inherently predisposed. Perhaps the Russo-Ukrainian War and the nuclear rhetoric have most clearly brought this issue to light, but the demolition of Vladimir Putin’s reputation, angry debates over Western officials who are engaged in prudent planning behind the scenes to prevent chaos and panic in their home countries in the event Russia was to detonate a nuclear bomb in or near Ukraine, stories on Russian intelligence operations in the West, and a host of other events have also played a part. Any use of nuclear weapons would break a taboo that has held since 1945 which would lead to severe consequences for the Kremlin, as more and more likely as the last scenario sounds, but there is circumstantial evidence that suggests a hidden Pro-Russian influence at work, and all the other parade of wickedness and evil we have surveyed here. They are, in a word, “Fascist”. Putinism as an ideology is about but one thing: gain power over as much of the Ukraine by whatever means possible, and hold on to it, but the Ukrainians had paid an immense price for the defense.

The Forces Of Empathy Are Greater Than The Furies Of War

Obviously, analysis requires an especially experienced and knowledgeable team and must be done with maximum dispassion. Stories are not ignored by the mainstream media, but they may or may not be played up. In this way, the mainstream media may not be successful much of the time in their primary duty to inform the public. Yale Professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld and the Yale team have become heroes. Jeffrey Sonnenfeld and his colleague Steven Tian are maintaining a roster of corporate responses to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As is now known, it is ironic that at a time when mainstream media exercised power and prestige far greater than in the past, it was Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Steven Tian and the Yale team that in reality terrified the Kremlin. According to academic analysis at Yale, Russia’s imports have collapsed by as much as half, domestic production has been hammered due to shortages of key inputs, and foreign companies accounting for 40% of Russian GDP have left the country. According to the Yale School of Management´s list, over 1,200 companies have voluntarily curtailed operations in Russia since the onset of the Ukraine invasion. The Yale’s list and the SSRN publication made headlines worldwide in thousands of articles. In a world given over to hype, sensationalism and Hollywood’s superficial heroes, Yale inspires the heroes of tomorrow, and has enriched our appreciation of their public struggles for freedom. Yale’s heroes teach us that true freedom is to be found in responsibility. Every year, the Rich TVX News Network names the person (or people) who wielded the most influence in the previous 12 months. Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, his colleague Steven Tian, and the Yale research team were chosen together as Rich TVX News Network’s Person of the Year. They were selected for their roles for showing that the forces of empathy are greater than the furies of war. We would like to acknowledge the stimulating friendship and supportive joint activism with Yale. The Rich TVX News Network count itself very fortunate to work alongside so many extraordinary people, including Yale professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Steven Tian and the Yale research team. At the same time, of course, across the Atlantic, we’d also like to acknowledge the many inspirational people of voices in Serbia, including Nikola Sandulović, the President of Serbian Republican Party, and Katarina Ilić, who strongly supported the Yale list in Serbia.

Russo-Ukrainian War

The Russo-Ukrainian War [18][d] has been ongoing between Russia (alongside Russian separatists in Ukraine) and Ukraine since February 2014.[e] Hostilities were initiated by Russia shortly after Ukraine’s Revolution of Dignity and were focused on the political status of Crimea and the Donbas, which remain internationally recognized as part of Ukraine. Incursions into Ukrainian territory culminated in Russia’s annexation of Crimea, followed shortly afterwards by the beginning of the war in Donbas between Russia-backed separatists and Ukrainian state forces; fighting for the first eight years of the conflict also included naval incidentscyberwarfare, and heightened political tensions. Throughout 2021, bilateral tensions rose due to a Russian military buildup surrounding Ukrainian territory, and on 24 February 2022, the conflict saw a major escalation as Russia invaded Ukraine again.

On 22 February 2014, Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych was ousted from office as a result of the Euromaidan and the Revolution of Dignity, which broke out after his decision to reject the European Union–Ukraine Association Agreement and instead pursue closer ties with Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union. Shortly after Yanukovych’s overthrow and exile to Russia, Ukraine’s eastern and southern regions erupted with pro-Russia unrest. Simultaneously, unmarked Russian troops moved into Ukraine’s Crimea and took control of strategic positions and infrastructure, including the Crimean Parliament on 27 February 2014. On 16 March 2014, Russia organized the internationally unrecognized Crimean status referendum, the outcome of which was in favour of Crimea coming under Russian sovereignty; Russia annexed Crimea in its entirety two days after the referendum was held. In April 2014, Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine proclaimed the establishment of the Donetsk People’s Republic (in Ukraine’s Donetsk Oblast) and the Luhansk People’s Republic (in Ukraine’s Luhansk Oblast) with support from Russia in the form of political figures, special forces, and deniable military advisors.[19]

In August 2014, a large convoy of unmarked Russian military vehicles crossed the Russia–Ukraine border[20] and entered the Donetsk Oblast. Although Russia attempted to hide its involvement, Russian troops directly participated in decisive battles of the undeclared war in Donbas and also maintained strategic reserves that would be ready to move into Ukraine when necessary.[19] In February 2015, Minsk II was signed by both Russia and Ukraine as part of larger bilateral agreements to end the conflict, but a number of disputes prevented cooperative measures from being fully implemented. The war in Donbas eventually settled into a static conflict between Ukraine and the two Russia-backed puppet states, with multiple resolution attempts failing to result in the maintenance of a ceasefire. In 2019, 7 percent of Ukraine had been designated by the Ukrainian government as being “temporarily occupied” by Russia.[21] By September 2022, up to 18 percent of Ukraine is under Russian occupation.[22]

From early 2021 into the first month of 2022, Russia built up a massive military presence surrounding Ukraine, including from within neighbouring Belarus. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) accused Russia of readying for an invasion of the Ukrainian mainland, which the Russian government denied. As tensions rose over the buildup, Russian president Vladimir Putin criticized the enlargement of NATO and demanded that Ukraine be barred from ever joining the military alliance. He also expressed Russian irredentist views and questioned Ukraine’s right to exist, falsely stating that the Ukrainian state was established by Vladimir Lenin under the Soviet Union.[23] On 21 February 2022, Russia officially recognized the Donetsk People’s Republic and the Luhansk People’s Republic, and openly sent Russian troops into Ukraine’s separatist-controlled territories. Three days later, Putin appeared on a televised broadcast and announced the beginning of a “special military operation” in Ukraine, signalling the start of Russia’s full-scale invasion of the Ukrainian mainland. As the Russian military moved into eastern and southern Ukraine, and also into northern Ukraine from Belarus, the 2022 Russian invasion was heavily condemned by much of the international community, with many countries and organizations accusing Russia of having grossly violated both Ukrainian sovereignty and international law. International sanctions against Russia, which have been imposed in some form by various countries since 2014,[24] were ramped up after February 2022. Additionally, due to its active role in support of Russia’s invasion, Belarus has also faced international boycotts and sanctions.
