I love Russia, I tried to learn Russian out of curiosity and appreciation for the language and culture. I am 100% supportive of Russia.
But please watch the movie Winter is on fire, It’s still on Netflix and easy to find anywhere else.
Yanukovych (ex-president of Ukraine) struck closed deals with Russia while misleading the people of Ukraine about their chances of joining the European Union – to be fair, even the European Union has slowed down on this.
Yanukovych sent mercenaries who were clearly unmarked Russian troops to bring the revolution to its knees. More than 75% of Ukraine took to the streets when the attacks on Medan took place. The dreaded coward fled with a helicopter when it turned out that the Ukrainians wanted revenge. The dreaded jackal sent this thug to beat old people, women and children. It was a scorched earth campaign.
Russia has many reasons to believe that Ukraine is part of Russia. It can be said that How Russia was the cradle of Russian civilization. Today nearly half of Ukraine (the eastern half that shares the border with Russia) sympathizes with Russia and speaks Russian fluently. It is a chaotic situation, but it does not justify Russian aggression.
I am not choosing aspects here. And NATO and American interests have sowed the seeds of discontent – recognizing only through conflict do they have a chance to thrive. Russia wants warm water ports for its naval vessels, and Ukraine is ready to pick.
This is a proxy war. Everyone lies and makes empty promises. I usually support Russia when it comes to the US-Russia conflict, but this is a step too far. History will not forgive the Putin regime for its apparent role in Ukraine’s misery.
