It’s a terrible tragedy. And it isn’t lessened by the fact that Russian media have slobbered triumphantly over every school shooting in the US. I experienced intense vicarious shame after the joyous, celebratory coverage of the Uvalde shooting on Russian news and social media. It was beyond gloating. Absolutely despicable. Of course, normal people don’t behave that way, and all one can feel in the face of this tragedy is great sadness.
