What's the difference between Roman Protasevich and Julian Assange?

Roman Protasevich is a dissident hated by a regime close to the Kremlin. Roman is a hero to the West.

Julian Assange is a publicist hated by Washington. Julian is a villain to the West.

Simples really, if you want to explain the West's latest Moral Outrage du jour. Meanwhile Assange rots in a British high security gaol, convicted of nairy more than a breach of bail.


  1. Protasevich was some kind of encrypted ap developer? I haven't heard much of this case.

  2. I don't really know what he is but being a dissident in a country close to the Kremlin is enough to become a darling of the West.
