A flashback from Bali to remind you guys about #PutinShirtlessChallenge I launched in August (remember: no photoshop, no pumping) and also a cunning attempt to distract the public while Apple is taking their time to review the newest Telegram update I promised last week. Hopefully Apple likes the update (and this picture) and Telegram 4.5 can go live tomorrow.
Good time in Finland last month 🇫🇮
August 2017 🇮🇩
Even God Vishnu (who is 23-meters high) is taking part in #PutinShirtlessChallenge
My instagram had to seriously step up the game to keep up with the increased competition from Mr. Putin’s shirtless photos. If you’re Russian, you have to join #PutinShirtlessChallenge (or face oblivion). Two rules from Putin – no photoshop, no pumping. Otherwise you’re not an alpha.
Great trip to Indonesia last week 🇮🇩
More photos from magical Bali are coming soon.
Making a wish ☀️#solstice2017
Working from Antibes turns out to be surprisingly productive. The key is to stay away from the crowds and parties of #cannesfilmfestival (which are great, nevertheless). We pushed an epic update of Telegram a few days ago and the next release is already taking shape.
Although a fan of the idea behind the EU, I think its rigid "all or nothing" structure fails to reflect the increasing differences of its member countries. If the EU doesn't become more flexible and decentralized within the next few years, it can easily collapse after a series of new brexits. On the other hand, if the EU gets a major reform to provide more freedom to its members, the UK might rejoin the union, and after that - maybe even Switzerland or Norway, who knows? 
If you're living in the EU, let me know your opinion in the comments.
