Defend yourself against Soviets

In honor of the Day of the Defender of Ukraine and National Cybersecurity Month in the U.S., I am putting pen to paper some thoughts that may help citizens of both countries defend themselves, ourselves.

Russia never ended the Cold War

We will sanitize the media and diminish the level of fear and panic. I think it is very important.
