“Osechkin, who is based in France, wrote on Telegram on March 29 that the decision was made after former Russian paratrooper Pavel Filatyev, whom Gulagu.net helped flee to France last year, confessed to knowledge of war crimes in Ukraine.“

“Even this cover is incredibly triggering. I honestly can’t believe someone can think that issuing this “memoire” is completely fine while my people are being raped, tortured and murdered every day by the likes of Filatyev. Are Ukrainians not humans to you, Albin Michel?
Just how devoid of any basic empathy does one have to be? While in Ukraine, every brand that used letters Z and V changed their names, you are putting them in uppercase on the cover of this meaningless “book”, along with the smug face of one of our butchers ?
Why do we even have to explain that these letters are the same ones Ukrainians saw on the russian tanks that drove over their raped and murdered neighbors and family members in a genocidal frenzy? Are you completely out of touch with reality ? WHY IS THIS OK TO YOU?
Would you or your readers feel fine if their home was destroyed, their family murdered and they themselves were forced to flee — to see someone who’s DIRECTLY responsible for that on the cover of some disgusting “book”, in a place where they were supposed to feel safe?
WHY DO WE HAVE TO EXPLAIN BASIC EMPATHY TO YOU, “PROGRESSIVE EUROPEANS”?!?!?”
