some interesting info about yugo-SLAVIA from 30 years ago?
i don’t even want to read the articles … waste of my time.
why is it a waste of time? Free-Dumb! Putin = D-evil. Communism!
god knows i would hate to live under an authoritarian regime – could you imagine being coerced/manipulated/lied to take “experimental gene or cell therapies never before used in humans that have no track record of efficacy or safety” and being locked in your house for 2 years! yikes, not in the land of the free! keep that kind of non-sense in “communist” russia and china!
one man, one vote – unless the ukrainians vote for the wrong guy. Then it’s orange revolution! 2014 Coup! Lviv’s [and US’ puppets] lose in elections [more transparent and honest than american elections] and it’s down with democracy …
ever heard about that that kuchma guy? not even to mention the history of england’s machinations on the continent, including proxies against russia …
That said, in my humble opinion, nothing is going to avert a long smoldering war. Easier to focus on war when the truth about covid bubbles to the surface, when the reality of massive inflation sweeps into the grocery stores … the Great Reset is afoot – and Ukraine and Zelensky are at the forefront!
It’s like a teenager locked in his room until 18, and then that pent up rage is unleashed on the world at large! Gee, sure am glad Europe went hardcore on the lockdowns!
Berzerkers! Spring Break! Rumspringer!
More somber, however. If Ukraine is to one day be legitimate and free, it would be far easier under Putin’s Russia – why? because in 100 years, Putin will be dead, and his far less capable successor’s will have faltered, and thee Ukraine can be free and strong as a break-away republic [or, knock on wood, the economic power will remain in Moscow, art will be homed in Saint Petersburg, and the spirit/heart of kyiv-rus will be in Kyiv. If thee Ukraine joins the EU and the US, it will continue to be pillaged and raped ’till kingdom come …
you reap what you sow …
and this harvest ain’t gonna be perty …
“I want ordinary Western people hear me, too,” Putin said. “You are being persistently told that your current difficulties are the result of Russia’s hostile actions and that you have to pay for the efforts to counter the alleged Russian threat from your own pockets. All of that is a lie.”
“The truth is that the problems faced by millions of people in the West are the result of many years of actions by the ruling elite of your respective countries, their mistakes, and short-sighted policies and ambitions. This elite is not thinking about how to improve the lives of their citizens in Western countries. They are obsessed with their own self-serving interests and super profits.”
