I wonder what the sceptics think of the current developments over in the Ukraine?

How long will it be before pro-Russian misinformation appears on here?

I think Washington and London are so full of shit they are choking on their own lies. I have no particular reason to respect Russia except that it is the biggest country on earth by a long stretch and  staunch allies with Britain in two world wars. The Russians' sacrifice to defeat Germany is still meaningful to me.Germans and some Europeans may have reason to detest Russia, but Britons have every reason to admire them and what they have done. It's not so easy being the biggest country on earth, lot's of pressures exist to pull it apart, esp. pressures from London and Washington. I think Britain will fall apart before Russia does. That's what history suggests....ireland is already gone, and Scotland has one foot out of the door.

Russians have not defeated Germany, it was Soviets, whose most brave soldiers, e.g.in Stalingrad were Ukrainians. You are watching their grandchildren standing up to a cruel criminal liar snake (and actually now two, including Lukashenko, whose army is in Ukraine already, but lying that it is not), who says he is not bombing civilians while he is, who is pretending to negotiate, while he is rearming. Are you serious? No, you must be crazy. I have relatives trying to escape to Poland, they had to stop their progress because the russcist army is shooting point blank at the cars moving west now on the road. This is NOT propaganda, this is my cousin speaking. 

BUT, if your pants are wet, Ok, sit at home and watch this "movie", until you will be in it. For me, the lives of the brave Ukrainians are not worth to save people like you.

That is why I want the war to end  end as soon as possible . Have a nice life.

If America or Britain get involved, you will soon be talking about hundreds of thousands of deaths  like in Vietrnam and the Iraq war - 461,000 est. but perhaps up to o 1,033,000. Whenever NATO or an allied coalition get entangled the effects are two fold.

  1. the death count spirals and then....
  2. any way to end the war by negotiation is instantly politicized and hence evaporates.

Putin's had it with NATO, And that's why the Ukraine cannot be allowed to be part of NATO. NATO instantly turns a constrained regional dispute into the next Vietnam/Iraq/Cold War  etc.NATO is completely out of control since Donald Trump had to go.

You need to understand, Ukraine in NATO is a smoke screen, an excuse. He was NEVER interest in negotiating. He planned it since 2012 or earlier. His military doctrine was always this - nukes. Read and educate yourself. If you think that by sacrificing this 40 mln people country future, live and freedom you will stop him threatening you with nukes, you are very wrong. It will be the opposite. If it works now, he will know it works. His nuclear threats will get more cruel, sophisticated and targeted. he will divide NATO (already happening), and will pick it one by one. Poland knows it is next, you can see it. Germany got it. When will you get it? 

He is not interested in negotiating now. HOW can you not understand it. Are you trying to negotiate with a Hitler? Again? you are insane. Good luck to you.

Well...this site is heaving with Russian misinformation, as you predicted.

Most here seem to be completely in support of the war waged by Russia.

They have swallowed the Putin stated rationale hook line and sinker, believing he had no choice other than invade Ukraine. Even Putin doesn't believe this rationale..he is just behaving like he always has.

The obsession that drives people on this site is to disbelieve the obvious reality and accept anything that states the opposite. These deluded fools are beyond reason.

It is a Special Military Operation not a War  If Russia had declared War we would all know about it.  You need to rein in your Russophobia and do a  bit more research into why this has happened. Research the history between Ukraine and the Donbass.  The two republics in the Donbass which mainly consist of Russian speakers asked President Putin for help as they had been persecuted for 8 years.  As for being deluded, you need to remove your russophobic glasses and look at the facts!

Without Donald  Trump,there is nothing to stop the warlike Anglo-saxon coalition from  getting itself entangled in yet another war in the east, with absolutely no idea what it is fighting for nor any particular objective other than to use some its array of weaponry from the industrial military complex. It does not even know why or how the war will end. The difference now is that it is getting involved in a Russian civil war not a syrian, afghan or Iraqi one. It can only have dire consequences, just like those other wars in the east.Haven't we enough debts without adding war costs?

@scepitcal It appears the world is doing their damndest to provoke a war with Russia. most of the UK's nuclear subs are in dry dock either with with no fuel rods or awaiting new rods. most of our destroyers are also in drydock awaiting replacement engines so we have no navy. wat navy we do have is useless in its attempts to stop asylum seekers crossing the north sea. if they want to kick start the cold war to justify spending trillions on defence they rick WWIII and that means the Satan II nukes that are now hypersonic. As for Russia being intent on world domination, those who know of the Siege of Leningrad that ended in 1944 some 872 days after it started was more than reason enough to persuade Russia to build a army so big that no nation would ever dream of repeating those horrifying events. If we are seeking the truth, we need to look at both sides. sadly the media are only giving us a one sided story. 

Like you, I too am a man of peace and i too am seeking answers and truth.

@fingal if we had let France and Russia fail, the world would have been spared many terrors.Churchill had an irrational personal  hatred of Hitler because Hitler had the one thing Churchill lacked the love, devotion  and respect of his people.So Churchill used his hatred to drive him to commit Britain to support communism and globalism, it is no wonder the Britons got rid of the bastard at the earliest chance once war was done. The bastard was out of Downing street while ww2 in the east still raged, Britons said good riddance to bad Rubbish , he was an awful war monger that cost this nation almost everything.

Ukraine is prized in Europe for exactly two things 1) a source of corn 2) a shortcut to invade  Russia, there is no reason to add  more reasons. It is the first European food/lebensraum  war for centuries. That's what we are seeing, the Ukraine is the European prairies, think of Saskatchewan or Alberta without the Rockies, is it worth fighting Russia over corn? think it through...

Ok then, I hope your children will not be called turnips soon by somebody who will think that UK is just an old, useless remnant of a have-been empire not worth fighting for.  Ukrainians will die standing and will not be able to save you anymore, like they did save you from Hitler 70 years ago.

Crickey,  I predicted Russia would take Kiev quickly, but even I did not expect them to achieve it in 24 hours. So if thing go as they did in rehearsals this war should be over around lunch time... the worst thing Fatty Johnson can do now is act to prolong the war.

Why must anything pro-Russian be 'misinformation'?

After all, all the lies about the Iraq war came from the USA and the UK and everyone knows now that they were absolute lies, resulting in what was undoubtedly a genocide on innocent Iraqi people. 

The Russians didn't kill those 1 million people, it was the USA, the UK and other NATO allies.

But apparently that doesn't matter, nor did the genocide of Libya, nor does the terrorism in Syria and nothing Israel does can ever be anything but good, eh?

 

It is not 'misinformation' to say that the Ukrainians voted for a President who wanted closer ties to Moscow, rather than to the EU, and that he was overthrown in a violent coup d'etat funded by $5bn of US money. That is historical fact. 

It is not 'misinformation' to say that that puppet government, having its strings pulled by Washington, has set about making the Russian language, spoken by a majority of citizens in the South and East of the country, unwelcome. If you deny that, I suggest you look at the laws implemented in Ukraine since 2014. 

Furthermore, it is not 'misinformation' to state, truthfully, that Ukraine stole Russian gas in transit to Europe and refused to pay its own gas bills to Russia. I suggest you ask Gazprom about that one....

None of that is 'misinformation'. 

 

So the question you have to answer is: 'why do the UK Government support a bunch of far-right fascists who hate Russians in a racist way, other than they are too weak to stand up to the USA??'

Spot on buddy, this clip should tell you all you need to know about how a confident leader should disregard stooges, weasels and liars, if nothing else is clear Putin will do what needs doing to safeguard the Russians in Eastern Ukraine from mindless destructive liberal Western hegemony, it's a big relief to see a fella who knows exactly what he wants.

History is not a popularity contest. The closest opposition to Putin in Russia is the communist party, we don't want them to make a comeback.So we have no option but to keep Putin in power at all costs, and that's another reason why NATO  is a waste of money. Russia and her satellite will have to find a way to co-exist, there is no short cut for doing that.

He is holding off the Communists, Ukraine is his price, if we do not pay, then Putin falls , Communists are back, cold war resumes, you are slowly learning to use your head. You should try it more often!

Putin has us in a vice, we cannot eject from Ukraine using NATO, or we restart the cold war.

 

I have to admit it is an audacious gamble. But we cannot act militarily , and have not done so. He know he's got us, good and proper, you'll just have to suck it up, leek.

Well they (you) were aiming to reduce the strength and proximity of NATO, because it limits the expansionist aims of Russia.

Instead, NATO is getting bigger, closer and better funded.

Then the invasion itself is working towards a painful stalemate, or Russian failure.

The west is now weaning itself off the prime Russian export and will keep Russia in the economic wilderness for decades.

Don't buy the "for the Donbas people" rationale, as Russia is just trashing their home and killing them. What will they be left with?

All in all it was a very bad decision that will be paid for by the Russian people.

@rtj1211 Mostly, your facts are not facts. In particular, there's no evidence that the US played any significant role in the Ukrainian revolution that caused Yanukovytch to flee to his Russian paymasters. Russian propagandists love to point to the intercepted Nuland phone call. But while the call is certainly embarrassing, it also reveals that neither the US nor the EU were leading any kind of armed revolution.

@lordsnooty The Ukrainian revolution was about joining the EU, not NATO. They want to join NATO now because, if you have Russia as a neighbour, who wouldn't? Any country not in NATO, gets invaded.

The   revolution in the Donbas was about joining Russia not the EU.Hence the overwhelming support for Janucovytch.

@lordsnooty Many Ukrainians support Russia or are actually of Russian descent. So what? There are lots of regions of Russia that don't want to be Russian. I don't see Putin letting them have independence. When Yanukovytch was forced from power (well, actually he panicked) it was because he lost the majority in the country.

You cannot see anything whatsoever, since you are blind to any reason and only wish to cleave to the UK government's narrative that Volodymyr Zelenskyy is a sort of modern Robin Hood while Vladimir  Putin  is a sort of Sheriff of Nottingham. That's the extent of you beliefs.I strongly oppose you since the only  route out of this war,eventually requires rapprochement.It would have been correct to try that before things go this bad.

This is a key question, and it is subject of great debate, but for my point of view the best possible outcome now resembles Minsk2, that is where Putin's plan is leading, to minsk2.

Independence of the donbas, with partition of Ukraine. Ukraine may not like Minsk 2, but it is a possible outcome that would satisfy Russia , while what Ukraine wants is not possible since Russia already holds the Donbas.So it will be minsk 2.

The best possible outcome for Russia and Ukraine is for Ukraine to remain Neutral and sign minsk2, while taking the Azov battalion and JFO apart, before Russia kills every man Jack of it, which btw it richly deserves, personally, I would  be very pleased to know the naziS are all dead, and buried.

that would depend on whether the rest of the terrorists who have been attacking  Russian separatists in the Donbas independent states. If they did, there should be some  latitude to cease fire, the question of compensation, should any be due,depends in part on the health of the Russian economy.

It pleases me  to me that the Brave Russian` Army  is quickly reducing what remains pf the ukrainian fascist army  to (basically) a mixture of dirt blood and bones, mostly btw dirt. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

yes, I have an old fashioned  theory that one side has to give in to end the war. Since Russia does not know how to give up, the only exit is for Ukraine to be the defeated party. Once Ukraine gives in the war should end.

@rtj1211  neither the US nor the EU were leading any kind of armed revolution. 

Yes but why are they getting dragged into wars between different types of Russians? That's the question...

the West, US and UK,can't defeat Russia, their only freedom is to prolong the war, and  that's what they're doing. Zelensky is hoping to hold on as long as he can, using his citizens as a shield.

@lordsnooty Putin has lost.

he’s lost the plot. His only way to deter the rest of Europe is now to threaten us all with nukes! He’s got nothing left now!

he is going to lose the Russian people as well.

this will be a constant stain on the history of Russia, his name will go down in history along side hitler as a despotic crack pot, who’s shot at infamy will be be in disaster.
Its all his fault and now, he cannot win 🤦🏻‍♂️ 

the people of russia are now living in dreaded fear of another pointless world war

Dear Lord Wet Pants, You criticised Churchill just now. BUT, his pants were much drier than yours, sorry. And he was smarter. Are you saying you, US, UK and Europe can not win against Putin? Then what you are going to say when China comes?  Can not win? Well, then you have nothing on Churchill, my dear friend. Nothing! And it is not worth living if you are a looser.

Get real.

I hope one side or the other quits, of course that must happen eventually . But which side should quit? That's a hard problem.Who started it?

  • The ukraine government started it in feb 2014, when it removed minority language rights from Russian speakers!
  • No Russians in the Donbas started it by declaring independence.
  • No Putin started it when he ordered an invasion in Feb 2022.
  • No it started with a Coup against legitimate President Yanukovic, in 2014
  • No it started when the independent Crimean government invited more Russian forces to the base in sebastopol.
  • No Kiev started it by supporting the vile fascist Asov Battalion.
  • No, the west started it by trying to natoise the Ukraine.

So we can't decide who should quit based on who started it. Both sides share the blame for that, but  who should quit? Well who would win if it went on for a long time?

It's hard to say who should quit. They'll have to sit down and talk it through, that's the next step.They'll have to have talks, meanwhile Russia might be content with the  gains it has already made and Ukraine has little to bargain with. It's a real toughie.

It is not as simple as that, sadly. Politics is the art of the possible.  I do not like to leave NATO unreformed. It's a difficult problem. But I'm not sure how to fix NATO. I'm open to ideas, but NATO has extended as far east as it ever could . That is certain. Putin has bloodied the west's nose now , and learned where Russia and the West is weak, he knows the west has no will  to  take on a serious nuclear power, China has noticed that too.

Putin is now committed to securing his gains by putting up a military partition to isolate the Russian eastern part of Ukraine from the west leaning  sectors. The Iron Ring Churchill might has called it.

East Ukraine is to be the new Russian Bulwark against any further NATO expansion.  Putin  can then  park his  tanks on NATO's lawn, and we'll just have to suck it  up. With constraints and new responsibilities to a brand new country governed from  the western  sector of Kiev, i.e. with strict governance on NATO, perhaps it would be Putin's best choice to quit soon.

It depends on exactly where  Putin eventually draws his  partition line. He obviously won't give up what he has gained, and he wants all Ukrainian sea ports to be in the Russian sector(he already has that), so the line will start at Odessa, but where will it end? That is where everything hinges. He is close now to encircling Kiev, so that is his clearly his prime target. If he fails to encircle Kiev, the northern end of the partition line will surely be Kharkiv. And yes, once Putin is sure he can support one or other of those partition lines, I have real hope that the  fighting can end.The sooner the better president Zelensky realises his game is up.It's over for the Ukraine as an intact nation.

@lordsnooty You understand nothing, from whatever country you're operating from. There's no exit strategy for Putin that leaves him in occupation of half of Ukraine. The only way for Russia to rejoin the world is to dump Putin. At some point, that's what's going to happen.

@lordsnooty Doesn't really matter if he goes for the whole country or not. It can't be allowed to stand that he keeps anything - even the Donbass and Crimea are back in question. He has thrown away a strong position - what stupidity. I think he is stubborn enough, and isolated enough, to wade through oceans of blood until someone puts him out of his misery. The sooner he is deposed, the better.

I'm sorry to break it to you but you have no say on whether or not it stands.Russia has a veto at the top table, the UN, you do not.

Well then we would enter anther round of the agony. An agony that has lasted since Russia entered Berlin in 1945. Do you want it to be a nice round century of agony, if not, you have to get a plan. Putin has a plan - to paralyse NATO, guess what ... it worked.

In that case, he has moved Russia closer to NATO protected countries. Which one will he target next? NATO will have to get stronger as a result. Russia will be in the economic wilderness for decades. How does this benefit anybody.

There is no reasonable defensive justification for the invasion. It is expansionist aggression pure and simple.

OK, here's the bottom line, written in terms that thickoes can grasp.

Russia stays in exactly the same location  it was . But, thanks to Putin,  NATO's ambitions have been totally  trimmed back, forever. The Crimea and Donbass and the rest of East Ukraine have already been   permanently removed from NATO's grasp. Ukraine now consists defacto of East and West Ukraine. Very insignificant small fry like Britain  will have to learn to live with Russia, if you expect significant nations like Russia to live with you.

Putin has parked his tanks on your lawn, while you had hoped to park your tanks on his lawn. It did not work out because because Putin has bigger balls than you have. And that is all the result of  your feeble ideas. My advice, make a plan that has a snowball's chance in hell of working.

Putin  has no need of land! Russia already possesses 11% of the land surface of the planet. If he absorbs the whole of the EU he only gets 20% more than he already has, and would need to risk nuclear annihilation to get it. 

But which one next ? well France tried to conquer Russia and Germany tried it twice! And all attempts failed with abject defeat which is how it would end for NATO, if it came to it. And that's just how it is.

wrt expansionist aggression...

I am far more concerned about America's ambition to convert the world to Mcdonald's munching capitalist consumers, such as yourself.

If anything Russia's actions have just shown why NATO is necessary and brought about the effect of it being strengthened.

Hmm...  You previously justified your support for Putin, as being the last defence against communism in Russia. 

But now you oppose capitalism, which is the opposite. You can't hate both, as there is no other realistic alternative.

When Russia  turns back depends on exactly where they want     the line to   partition  Ukraine to be. I want a line which gives Russia and NATO a huge empty buffer zone, so not less than 150km from the present line of control in the map below. It would risk future peace  to quit before dnipro falls.As chance has it, once dnipro is seized, that would define the line of partition to be from odessa to Dnipro then follow the natural course of the dnieper river all the way to kiev, so that's  it. I predict  line of partition will be from Odessa to Dnipro then along the river to Kiev, and that will be the new Ukraine, and the fighting will go on until that point.

@lordsnooty NATO already has a border with Russia. The invasion of Ukraine doesn't create a buffer, it removes it. The risk of a Russia-NATO war has been hugely increased. Even if Putin 'wins' the war, the millions of refugees will create a problem like the Palestinians that will never go away. Russia can never have peace if it tries to hold Ukraine.

NATO IS Restricted  TO the North Atlantic area , By article 1 of the north atlantic treaty, and NATO has been operating illegally for many years, you will no doubt be aware that Turkey, Greece , Bulgaria, Slovakia and others are not part of the north Atlantic area.hence any impingement on Russia ifrom those regions s a crime and can be rebuked, by Russia .

Have were they under some immediate threat, that would justify attacking?

If NATO is still a defensive alliance, who or what is it defending itself against? The spontaneous response to this would be to identify Russia as the adversary, but this in turn implies that the existence of NATO itself casts Russia in the role of perpetual enemy. Unsurprisingly, the Russians have worked this out for themselves and concluded that their own national interests are likely to play out against a background of low-level Western hostility.

So you justify this invasion, because of a "a low level of hostility"?

Don't forget that you use the word "we" often when referring to the Russian action, so pretending to be some objective observer is not credible.

How does it end well for both parties?

Ukraine wants to be left alone and join the EU. Russia [well Putin] wants to acquire Ukraine. These cannot both be achieved.

Putin is interested in preserving his own power and increasing it, if possible. You would seem to be a big fan.

It's difficult . I'd like  an easy way out but we have passed that. The best  path now is any which  avoids  a prolonged war of attrition as we saw in Syria until Putin  used air strikes on the insurgent "terrorists"  to put a stop to it in 2015.  

The west quite likes proxy wars (e.g. Yemen, Syria, the DonBas ...) since the foreigners  do the fighting on the west's  behalf. Fatty Boris and Sleepy Joe  won't go near Ukraine with a barge pole , encouragement and our money,  is  all they'll offer. TALK IS CHEAP.

So, the reality  is that Putin  already holds the  Dombas and much  of east Ukraine, and much territory to the  north of Kiev, he's taken more territory around the Crimea and is able to blockade all Ukrainian sea ports. A 40 mile long convoy is coming via chernobyl.This is to lay siege to Kiev; starve it out. See map below.

Ukraine wants to be left alone and join the EU. Russia [well Putin] wants to acquire Ukraine. These cannot both be achieved.

 East Germans would not have chosen to be cut off  and occupied by Russia at the close of WW2, but it was, as East Ukraine is now. It is just the way it is.

btw: if Putin goes, the Communists would come back pronto.

Now there can  never be  an intact  Ukraine in NATO or the EU, since Russia  is  occupying the Donbas , hence the best outcome I can see for both sides now is to stop fighting  and to partition Kiev/Ukraine  as Berlin/Germany was partitioned.This is now a very distinct probability.

Putin is interested in preserving his own power and increasing it, if possible. You would seem to be a big fan.

I'll let you know if I ever say anything nice about Putin, I have not done so yet . At present he is holding off the Communists, we do not want to go back to that. Ukraine is his  price  to hold off the Communists. And it would serve Russia as a buffer zone, like the Golan for Israel.

Anyway, there is no better plan. If you know one spell it out, if your plan is to have NATO march in and forcibly eject Russia, that would restart  the cold war. The West has no plan, and we need Russia more than Russia needs us. btw: Russia being  11% of global land mass.

As it happens Putin had a plan.

@lordsnooty I don't care if you like Putin or not,

Thank you for your kind words and I likewise don't mind it you dislike Putin or not. btw: Here is Peter Hitchens, saying as I say that he wants this war to be over as soon as possible.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvmddazUW3I

OK, I'll show you the plan. We in the west have  used Ukraine as our proxy  because we dare not confront Putin ourselves. Our leaders have been content to allow the Donbas to become a proxy war involving  neo-Nazi Ukrainian forces such as the Azov Battalion to kill and maim tens of thousands of Russian speaking residents, it was bound to end in disaster and now it is doing. We might  have  persuaded Kiev to change policy and recognise the independent DONBAS republics, but we delayed and delayed... so we could use Ukraine as  a battering ram, as Peter calls it.

Vladimir Putin's designs are   now transparently obvious, he will join his Russian controlled territory around the Donbas to his newly acquired strip of coast near mariupol to create a Russian-speaking zone from the Donbas to the Crimea, and do similar in the north of Donbas to join his newly acquired territory extending from the north of Kiev to Kharkiv, creating a horseshoe shaped zone of Russian control (an Iron Horseshoe!) from the Crimea to the outskirts of kiev and enclosing almost the whole of Eastern Ukraine. A 40 mile army column is  advancing to the outskirts of north western Kiev, the intent is clear, Putin will encircle and starve out Kiev. He is in effect implementing  Minsk2 unilaterally, putting a hard stop to President Zelensky's trouble making. Now Ukraine is to be partitioned as Germany was, perhaps Kiev will wind up like Berlin? We have no say in matters any more, we lost our chance that when we allowed Minsk2 to fail.

 And that's the full plan.  The trap has been set and is now ready to close.

I live in that part of Britain  encircled by the castles of  Edward I to conquer north Wales.Ironically, Putin's plan to conquer east Ukraine is an application of exactly the same plan. It is very famous and is called the ring of Iron! That how I figured out what Putin is up to!He's copying King Edward I of England.The purpose of building the  ring of castles was to control the native Welsh population, particularly in Gwynedd, which had been the main focus of resistance to the English crown for centuries. Substitute Ukraine for Wales  and his  plan is transparently obvious.

I'm  hearing now from a lot of analysts, who concur that Putin's plan is to encircle   a massive chunk of Zelensky's  army and imprison them in a ring of iron, where they can be cut off from supplies and gradually annihilated, this, btw is the acknowledged plan as seen on Russian State Television.My primary links are a) Gav Don, who gets a lot right, and b) the Royal United Services Institute, who are brave enough to differ from the biased  British MoD.

a) https://www.bne.eu/comment-eastern-ukraine-is-close-to-falling-but-putin-now-needs-a-peace-fast-237784/

b) https://rusi.org/explore-our-research/publications/commentary/not-out-woods-yet-assessing-operational-situation-ukraine

I never like to take just one source, but two reputable sources saying the same thing makes you think. I've learned that the Ukrainian force in north East Ukraine has 60,000 soldiers and is called the JFO, Joint Forces Operation. It's ironic that Russia is laying siege to them since their orders from Kiev were to  lay siege to Donetsk, the capital of the DonBass founded by the Welsh Coal miner, John Hughes, which now has two universities and two million citizens, most  of whom speak Russian and voted to leave Ukraine! How the tables have  turned on the JFO  who are now fighting to live, in any case, by getting behind (to the west of) the JFO but blocking the route to the dnieper, Russia has cut Ukraine in half, along the line of the dnieper river,in a manner that  prevents further harassment of Donetsk from the West. It is basically mission accomplished, if only Zelensky would give in, there is no further need to fight, Kiev was never a target, it was a feint to tie up and destroy a good chunk of the Ukrainian forces.

I don't see what more Russia can gain, once every man jack of the JFO is dead, in prison  camps or dying, it might be correct to draw a line under the special operation, with one extra thing. It is absolutely vital to totally annihilate the vile AZOV Battalion who are sheltering behind civilians in Mariupol. Once they are all dead, I think we are done here. From the reports we get from mariupol,  I think the Azovs are finished.

Let's try to dredge up some more truth tomorrow.

that's his way to avoid covid19.

My ideal outcome is that they would find you a jet so that you can emigrate to Russia (while it still exists). This is just humane, your life will get increasingly difficult here.

I'm still waiting for things to get more difficult.... no sign of anything yet!

“Why must anything pro-Russian be 'misinformation'?”

It doesn’t have to be, they used to have an awesome football team in the late 80’s early 90’s.

However, I think you misread my post and it’s nuanced meaning.

misinformation and conspiracy theories proliferate this site.

Besides that, thanks for your, lengthy, yet one-sided insight.

That's because the Bretton woods talk in 1944 decided that the world would be split into four spheres  of influence, the Americas, Europe, the British Empire and the Pacific, Four nations wound up dominating each region, America, Germany, Britain and Japan,that's how the world got its system of capitalism.It's obvious that two  nations got very little, considering they are  the biggest on earth.China and Russia  are areas  of their  own, as outsiders, they  write their  own rule books, hence their  rules are misinformation.

As it happens Putin had a plan. 

There you go - you just said something nice about Putin. The illusion that what is happening is actually as he intended. You are loyal to something, but it isn't Britain.
