No Russia, no federation book by Vasily Krouglov
February 2022 was the world's longest month in decades - the 21st century's first major war in Europe stretched a moment into hundreds of crazy days. For Russia, that February was the last. At the same time as the invasion, the transformation into a fascist state was completed. There was no more Russia or Federation in it. The war did not only affect Ukraine, Russia and Belarus. It also accelerated great historical processes.
In "No Russia, no federation" the artist and writer Vasily Krouglov has created a detailed picture of the invasion, of the atmosphere inside and outside the country, and of the chain of events in the world of military Europe.
