Russian mathematician Dmitry Kaledin (Steklov Mathematical Institute, Moscow, Russia) has more guts than the legion of Putin's ass-lickers, engulfed by the murky wave of their patriotic fervor, have ever had together. Here is an excerpt from his paper on Mackey profunctors (whatever it means):
Acknowledgements. A large part of this work was done in April 2014, during my visit to J. Dieudonne Laboratory of the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, with its wonderful people and great working atmosphere. I am very grateful to E. Balzin and C. Simpson for setting up the visit, and for many useful discussions. In fact, the only distractions during my visit were continuous news about my home country behaving as a fascist state it has become, reaching new lows each week. I am grateful to the people of Ukraine for their courage and humanity, since this is the only thing that stands between us and complete darkness, and I wish them total victory in the struggle against their barbarian neighbor.This is extraordinary, and my only regret is that there are not enough courageous people like Dr Kaledin today in Russia.
Here is a snapshot of the page where the acknowledgement appears (click on it to enlarge):
