Vladimir Putin held the annual meeting with his recently-revised Human Rights Council. As one would expect from a human rights meeting held in Moscow, a lot of “pro-human” developments were reached and some really smart pickling tips were shared by the dictator-turned-homemaker president.

Russia’s grief-stricken moms had some good cries and were quite thankful for the tips.

Really, though, it turns out in a wonderfully Orwellian manner, the hand-picked sycophant attendees were warned before the meeting that anything could be discussed: Except human rights abuses in Russia, the war in Ukraine, and the high casualty rate of Russian soldiers in Ukraine.

The presidential Human Rights Council in Russia was told “not to upset” Russian President Vladimir Putin with questions about the ongoing invasion of Ukraine, the Moscow Times reported, citing the investigative news website Vyorstka. Putin and the council held their annual meeting on Wednesday (Human Rights Council Was Warned).

Among other topics that the president’s aides felt might launch the president into a fit of trembling was that fun video showing the man’s head being cleaved open by a sledgehammer.
