So, I thought I'd make a topic so Russian apologists (and others) don't have to hit and run shoutbox to make their case. Here's a great chance to make an actual statement
Russia managed to turn back the collective security clock 25 years in one fell swoop with their anschluss of Crimea.* Now they want us all to believe they are saving us from right wing extremists in Ukraine. After the shoot down of a civilian airliner Putin is in dire straits, after all he has positioned Russia as a staunch opponent to terrorists, now he's supplying and supporting the destabilization of the Ukraine...I'm guessing he'll have to eat crow soon and just simply back off.
End result? The midget dicator managed to make NATO members out of every country ever so slightly sympathetic to Russia, even eternally neutral states like Finland and Austria know what's up now. Even Sweden is talking about actually raising a combat force now Well done.
* Make no mistake, it was entirely illegal. If the citizens wanted a separate state there were legal means to make it so...instead Russia pretended and sent troops with no insignia to make a fait accompli.
Close this idiotic thread! Normal russians and ukrainians should live in peace!
give 25% of Russian territory for the Chinese, and 25% for Indians - then there will be peace in the world!
Now a little more of the lovely "Conspiracy Theories"
The Malaysian airliner Boeing 777 that missed on March of 8th this Year was never found, now it comes back after all these weeks over Ukraine to be shoot down and claim that the Russian separatists did it, the USA has all the evidences within a minutes since the crash already, satellite photos of BOK anti-aircraft launcher and of course hijacked phone records, someone on the internet taken that video from the youtube, open it up and checked that the 'creation date' of the video file was actually made day earlier within the crash, also russian seperatists claims that the bodies are deprived of blood and in a state of decay already, that it was some kind of medical transport with dead bodies.
All that conflict started because Yanukovych Russian pet rejected Ukraine to join the EU and now all the EU and eastern countries are mad on Russia that it sticks its nose into Ukraine, took Crimea and started an inside civil war to destabilize whole country and show the peoples that they do not need the EU.
It was too much for Russia that the EU/USA wanted to swallow their nearest neighbor and gain most of the influence on the economy of Russia and maybe create one of the NATO/US base in that country
unfortunately ukrainian political goverment called svoboda with permission of usa government did shooted down the malaysian airplane.
svoboda is a natzi social political party. they members are natzis and now they are going to rule the ukraina. it is damned. well, history shows that ukrainian soldiers was worse than animals for example on polish civilians during war than germa natzis themselves. it is one big propaganda. malaysian airplane was shoted down just for the provocation and to start sanctions for russia.
