Just the facts, @Politics_Observer ;
I don't know annatar....I don't think it's "propaganda" to state just only the facts and the logical conclusions from just the facts. Just the facts annatar. Only the facts and logical conclusions from those facts. Russia took a chunk of Ukraine when Ukraine decided they wanted to be free and independent.
This is in fact untrue. The Crimea was given over the the Ukraine SSR during the time of Khruschev, and both regions were historically Russian. Plus, when the Oligarchs and Fascists took over in Kiev in the Ukraine in 2013, the Crimea (mainly ethnic Velikorussians) voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia. And in the Donbass where I have people I know, the Fascists had already sent out death squads like the Azov Battalion to kill Russians there, and so the Donbass Russians decided to declare the independence of the Donetsk People's Republic and the Lugansk People's Republic.
So that is a lie, it's bullshit. It's not your lie, but it's still false.
Plus, the Russians doing sudden menacing snap drills on the borders of other Baltic NATO countries.
Because NATO is now just a few minutes missile strike from St. Petersburg and Moscow, the Russians have to have such preparedness drills, not counting on the West's permanent goodwill. We have at least 27.6 million reasons not to. The menacing is not from Russia; what would you thing of armed and possibly hostile forces that close to America as we are to Russia?
Then Putin moving into Syria
At the request of the legitimate and internationally recognized government of Syria, the Russian armed forces assisted the Syrian military in defeating militant Jihadi forces from taking over Syria. Is having ISIS or Al Qaida being in charge in Damascus something you'd really prefer to see?
and hacking our elections in 2016 and attempted to hack our elections again during the 2020 election.
Bullshit. No proof of that whatsoever, it's a hysterical conspiracy theory started by Hillary Clinton... You know, the woman who started the whole ''Birther'' conspiracy theory against Barack Obama.
Did I mention that Putin has been expanding his influence with the Hungarian government too?
Wow, Russia shouldn't try to have good relations with anyone, should they?
Ohh and let's not forget Putin harassing our naval forces and military reconnaissance flights in international air space and waters (these were not mere military interceptions).
Similar incidents from Western forces don't make Western media reports, and most of the incidents are in places like Syria, where US forces are illegally occupying Syrian territory in violation of international law. Funny, that started under President Trump, are you suddenly a Trump supporter?
Putin can talk this game about "imperial Western powers" all he wants but I think quite the contrary it seems that your bro Putin and Tsar Putin wants his empire back that he lost when the Soviet Union collapsed.
More nonsense. From everything i've seen and everyone i've talked to, Putin is actually the closest thing to a Russian liberal fond of the West, and he has absolutely no interest in even taking back areas that are majority Russian, except the Crimea, which voted on annexation, and was already home to Russian military forces under agreement with previous Ukrainian governments.
I don't pay attention to words. I pay attention to action.
I'm not seeing you doing that, I'm seeing you taking in all your information from a congenitally biased media in the West that is Anti-Russian.
Russia's actions and the logical conclusions we can draw from those actions (that Russia seeks to expand it's influence and get it's empire back) speak for themselves.
Wrong, as I've stated above.
Outside of Russia's borders, the Tsar seems quite close by, hostile, aggressive and has demonstrated it wants back it's old empire. The Baltics and Eastern Europe should especially worry.
That's one of the stupidest things i've heard in a while, and I know you aren't stupid, especially when you should know that Elitist white western scumbags continually lied to Russian leaders after the fall of the Soviet Union and among many other outrages, lied about NATO expansion to the point where, as I said before, NATO expansion to the very frontiers of Russia presents an existential threat to the Russian people, from the West, once more in a single lifetime . Consider the possibility that you are flat wrong and possibly quite prejudiced against Russia and Russians, and maybe a little misinformed?
But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player, is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself.
