Mr. President: Fire Victoria Nuland!

The world is now racing toward a "Cuban Missile Crisis in reverse," where Russia is faced with the existential threat of nuclear weapons and NATO forces positioned along her border. The person most responsible for this dangerous state of affairs is Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland. It was Nuland who masterminded the violent coup d'etat against an elected government in Ukraine in 2014. She proclaimed in a December 13, 2013 speech to the U.S.-Ukraine Foundation Conference that "We’ve invested over $5 billion to assist Ukraine", and we now know that the money was "invested" in building up an apparatus for Regime Change. In Nuland's famous intercepted phone call to US Ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, she detailed her plan to install a puppet regime in that country, a plan which was carried out to the letter. The consequences were severe. The putsch re-awakened the Cold War which the world had hoped had died with the Warsaw Pact in 1991. It also re-awakened and empowered the Banderist movement which had collaborated with the Nazis in World War II. News coverage only a few weeks ago called attention to a pro-Nazi march in the Ukrainian capitol of Kyiv, and an annual neo-Nazi rock concert, also held in Kyiv, was attended by Ukraine's Prime Minister two years ago. The rest of the world is worried about these developments, which is why the United Nations has passed a resolution on “Combating Glorification of Nazism". The U.S. and Ukraine were the only nations who voted to oppose this resolution, in a moment of shame for our nation. Mr. President, before this situation spirals further out of control, you must demonstrate to the rest of the world that we have come to our senses. Fire Victoria Nuland, and reverse our nation's pro-Nazi vote at the U.N.

Facebook and Twitter be against trolls - add optional photo verification

Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are the main platforms for people to share their political thoughts.  Unfortunately, the same platforms are intentionally misused by corrupted groups - trolls, to cause political polarisation and disagreement. Trolls have affected freedom of speech in many countries by spreading fake news. Trolls involvement has been detected in the USA elections, Brexit, and even now, during the war in Ukraine trolls are actively spreading fake news. Facebook and Twitter declare that they are working on different algorithms and AI tools to detect trolls. But after a troll has shared fake news, it is already late to expose it. Troll has already done its job, and after deletion new one will emerge. For building trust among the users, an optional photo verification successfully has been used on various social platforms, like dating apps. With current technology, photo verification does not require government ID cards.   *** An extract from Tinder solution: How does Photo Verification work? Photo verification has two steps: Pose verification and face verification.  Pose verification extracts pose geometries from your selfie photo using computer vision technology, and determine whether the pose geometry matches the requested one.  Face verification detects your face in your selfie and your profile photos and extracts facial geometries using facial recognition technology. If your selfie matches your profile pictures - you’re the same person as your profile photos.  *** In the world of trolls, we, as ordinary users, have a right to identify ourselves as real ones and be accountable for the word we spread on social media. And as a real person, I would like to identify other real persons to decide - whom I trust. I want to underline that we are not requesting to force users any kind of verification, but having an option - to self-photo verify and to self declare as a real person, hence have more trust from others to yourself and seek the same. We hope the recent acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk will change it for the better and hope our word will reach him as feedback from Twitter users.  Reference articles: Trolls Continue To Be A Problem On Social Media Troll farms reached 140 million Americans a month on Facebook before 2020 election, internal report shows Trolls and traffickers target Facebook group for Ukrainian refugees Twitter has admitted Russian trolls targeted the Brexit vote (a little bit) How does Photo Verification work?
