Good for her and all that, however, this is a win for Putin.Quote from: Ecurb Noselrub on December 08, 2022, 04:58:41 PMShe was released from a Russian prison today, so that is good news. Some sage advice - stay out of Russia. Some paprika advice - stay out of Hungary. Indeed. If you do must go to one of them places, however, make sure that you don't bring anything that will get your ass arrested with you. That said though, Hungary is not bad. At least from what I know, they are no worse at giving foreigners long sentences than Finland.Personally, I have a few places on the map I'd rather not visit before I die. Somalia, North Korea, both Sudans, Myanmar, cartel war parts of South America, Russia, Haiti, Bangladesh, Belarus, Palestine... A few others. Still, people have been on successful recreational trips to all of them. I think chances are that if you travel properly prepared for your destination that it will be just fine.

If he turns up and gets caught he goes straight back to prison, where he can be traded again. The appropriate authorities can now watch who the arms dealer interacts with at a fresh starting point. He will act as a catalyst exposing contacts and networks.

Most likely the merchant of death goes back into his dirty arms business, which will results in hurting and killing more people. I find this trade-off highly irresponsible.
